WASHINGTON (NNPA) – Even if the Affordable Care Act survives U.S. Supreme Court scrutiny, a favorable ruling this summer will not serve as a cure-all for insuring African Americans, according to health professionals and a report in the current issue of Health Affairs. Healthcare advocates still have to deal with the consequences of November’s presidential election – especially if President Obama is defeated – even if “we win everything in June,” said Mara Youdelman, managing attorney in the Washington, D.C. office of the National Health Program, a nonprofit that advocates for the health rights of low and underserved people.

MOVIE REVIEW: Think Like A Man

Written by Kam Williams on Monday, 14 May 2012 15:35.

think_like_a_man_reviewComedian/actor/radio and television show host Steve Harvey shocked the world a few years ago when he added love guru to his repertoire with the publication of "Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man."The popular relationship primer, which earned the #1 spot on the New York Times best-seller list.  mapped out a step-by-step strategy designed to help any woman turn her man into Mr. Right merely by understanding and manipulating the male psyche.Think Like a Man, the movie, is less an adaptation of the book than a battle-of-the-sexes romantic comedy revolving around a quartet of conniving females who secretly rely on the tenets of Steve's philosophy to try to land the men of their dreams.
