A Sober 4th of July: “They Believed in Order, But NOT in the Order of Tyranny.” – Frederick Douglas

By Polo Munoz, Managing Editor/Publisher On July 4 1776, the continental congress declared independence from the British for the 13 colonies that made up the American colony, was it a day of freedom for all people who were in the colonies? http://www.ushistory.org/declaration/document/. As we now have traveled 243 years past that moment, some are still at a crossroads of who should be included in that freedom.

The Mystery of Networking – The Incredible Value of College and Career Day

One Day at a Time Season 3 – Creating Change….. on Purpose

By Polo Munoz, Managing Editor/Publisher There are some icons in the TV sphere that inspire bold and intrepid content. In many cases Netflix, Hulu, and other streaming channels by their very format allow and encourage filmmakers to be more free to explore and experiment, and there are some creatives that also paint a picture that is thoughtful, insightful and thought provoking… and very uncomfortable for many people. When One Day at a Time, the 1970’s version, was first pitched, the networks did not want a divorced woman to be the lead, Norman Lear, the creator just said that if...
