Quite often when we are not satisfied or not happy with our lives we try to figure out why in the midst of the forest. It's not possible to do that and you will continue to be frustrated.

Radio Facts: For the last few days on Sportscenter this has been a very hot topic. D.L. Hughley even addressed it on his syndicated radio show. Should the NFL penalize players for the use of the N-Word on the field? I just want to know how they are going to really be able to execute it fairly and properly. There is way too much going on in an NFL football game to add this to the list. I understand the importance of trying to clean the up the sport but can we focus on some things that really matter and truly have impact and significance? In this video, Herm Edwards gives his perspective and how he thinks this should be handled.
Radio Facts: Another day, another racist perspective from the world of fashion. Dasha Zhukova is a Russian socialite, philanthropist, entrepreneur, fashion designer and the editor-in-chief of bi-annual art and fashion magazine GARAGE. She is also the partner of Russian billionaire, Roman Abramovich. The socialite sent the internet into a frenzy after an online magazine published a photo of her sitting on a chair resembling an almost-naked Black woman- on MLK day. The blog known as Buro 24/7 used the photo of Dasha Zhukova Monday to highlight an interview with her regarding her GARAGE brand. Miroslava Duma, the blog's editor, also posted the highly offensive photo on Instagram. After several comments pointing out the ignorance in the photo, Duma deleted the picture from Instagram. After deleting the photo, Duma instantly released an apology, which you can read below. Many people still were not having it after the apology and let the editor know just how they felt about the racist tone of the photo.

He had been very ill over the last couple of weeks and he died on the evening of Thanksgiving. I worked with Jerry at Urban Network and can honestly say that he was the most brilliant radio mind in the industry. He hired me at Urban Network in the early 1990s after I was a programmer at KDKO in Denver and he showed me the ropes from a national perspective. The greatest thing about Jerry Boulding that I admired most was that he could recite the resume of anyone in the industry when you mentioned their name. Working at Urban Network was the catalyst for me to start my own magazine, the experience was incredibly valuable thanks to Jerry. I have never met someone who loved radio as much as he did. RIP Doctor Boulding you will always be the greatest radio icon to me. Kev Ross Nov 2013
