Legislative Weekend held
in Washington, DC on
September 27th Mr. Ruben Atekpe
Chairman of Merchants Company of
West Africa Ltd (Ghana) and
Ambassador Oscar J. Webb were the
guest of Congressman Donald
M. Payne (D-NJ), Chairman of
the Congressional African Affairs
Committee at his annual
Odyssey Boat Cruise.
Donald Milford Payne (July 16, 1934 – March 6, 2012) was the U.S. Representative for New Jersey’s 10th congressional district, serving from 1989 until his death. He was a member of the Democratic Party. The district encompasses most of the city of Newark, parts of Jersey City and Elizabeth, and some suburban communities in Essex and Union counties. He was the first African American to represent New Jersey in Congress.
Payne was born in Newark and was a 1952 graduate of Barringer High School. He did his undergraduate studies at Seton Hall University, graduating in 1957. After graduating he pursued post-graduate studies in Springfield College in Massachusetts. Before being elected to Congress in 1988, Payne was an executive at Prudential Financial, Vice President of Urban Data Systems Inc., and a teacher in the Newark Public Schools. In 1970, Payne became the first black president of the National Council of YMCAs. From 1973 to 1981 he was Chairman of the World Y.M.C.A. Refugee and Rehabilitation Committee.
Payne’s political career began in 1972, when he was elected to the Essex County Board of Chosen Freeholders, serving three terms. In 1982, he was elected to the Newark Municipal Council and served three terms, resigning in 1988 shortly after his election to Congress.
While in the House of Representatives, Payne was known as a de facto ambassador to Africa. He helped secure $100 million to help prevent and treat AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa.
Darius Mans, president of Africare in Washington, called Payne a committed legislator who cared dearly about the plight of Africans.
“Whenever you needed something done on Africa he did not delegate it, he made sure it happened. Whether it took phone calls to the White House, rallying members of Congress Donald Payne always delivered for Africa.”
U.S. Congressman Donald Payne was elected to the House of Representatives in 1988, the first black congressman elected from New Jersey. In the Capitol, he championed many causes including education and global affairs. As a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee he worked to promote democracy and protect human rights overseas.

WCN COMMENTARY: As the world’s most likely first Transmedia Brandcasting Catalyst and Thought Leader, we’ve done a lot of Research at the WCN Think Tank on the future of monetizing streaming video for the future. Recently with the Death of Whitney Houston we called for the Mandating of a National Drug Database to control the last line of defense against dispensing multiple drugs by different doctors and pharmacies. Responding to that post Alan Falk and LinkedIn Connection created this piece called The Grand Unification Theory for Communication in the Future”. We find this to be a compelling read and wanted to share it with you.
By Alan Falk
Ok, let me admit up front: I’m a synthesist. It’s just the way my brain is wired: I take seemingly disparate concepts and notice similarities and figure out how they fit together in nw, otherwise as-yet-unnoticed ways.
Here you have Google, which has made a worldwide impact by developing search algorithms that are now used as tools by nearly everyone for search, correlation, combination of concepts.
Facebook has created a splendid connection environment for friends and families all around the world: photos, personal events, updates, communication.
But wait, there’s more…
Classmates.com also provides a means for people to contact and communicate with schoolmates from high school, college and elsewhere, linking people and their histories and events, too.
Twitter has made it possible for literally tens of thousands of people to keep in touch with incredible numbers of other people and organizations and to stay updated on any event that a subscriber cares to share or comment on.
Blogger and others have provided venues for anyone and everyone to express their ideas and rant or rave about whatever turns them on or off in the world around them. It is another way for the global community to discover others with similar (or opposing) viewpoints, for conversation… or rants.
Linked In has become a success in connecting people, originally in the working world. Anyone can search for co-workers currently or previously employed at a given company and connect to them even, if their lives have taken them physically far away, but who might still want an emotional (or at least email) connection to them.
Skype, where you can talk “face to face” through the internet to anyone with the right hardware, software and communications links. Email with sound and pictures, in real time!
And, of course, there’s email itself, which has revolutionized interpersonal and corporate and advertising communications at an incredible pace. Whether some of us like it or not.
So where does my synthesis come in?
A few years ago, a science-fiction program aired on TV: Flashforward.
The plot was based on the concept of a mysterious force that knocked nearly everyone on Earth out for several minutes, during which they seemed to experience a “flash forward” to what their life would be like some months in the future.
In Flashforward, one of the protagonists created a massive database and communication tool by which people could log on to a central repository and tell their stories… the images of the future they saw during their “blackout period.”
Everyone who wanted to could also search for others who had similar experiences and they could then compare notes. Future-Networking, if you will.
Some of the visions were good, some were frightening and for some who didn’t see anything during their blackout, they might conclude that they might not be alive in the near future. I was disappointed that the series didn’t continue for at least a few more years.
Back to the connection…
The database/communication “tool” in the program was named “Mosaic,” which was amusing to me, as Mosaic was one of the first internet browsers that allowed people to connect to the Internet without having to recite zeroes and ones and a prayer to their desktop computer to make it happen.
A breakthrough human interface tool.
More synthesis, if you don’t already see what’s coming… The “What If…?” part.
Let’s create a Future Vision for worldwide communications that lets anyone and everyone do things like… Let’s call it “The Network” for now. If you want to scare yourself silly, rent the first Terminator movie and think “SkyNet.”
Video: real-time and historical storage, sharing and archiving.
Photos and sound… ditto.
Connecting, like Facebook, Classmates, Linked In, Skype, etc.
And then add a few more layers that expand the scope and benefits to everyone…
Here’s where my synthesis took me:
You catch a cold. You’re not sure if it’s serious or not, but you post it on The Network.
Or you have some other symptoms, new or old, that might describe a known problem or a new one. Fever, chills, a rash, a lump, a pain…
Network files your information away for correlation and comparison.
All the time, Google-like algorithms are scanning posts like yours for patterns.
Usually, there’s no pattern, but once in a while, it might trigger an alarm if it sees a trend where, for example, a lot of people in one community or zip-code are suddenly reporting cold or flu symptoms. Hospitals or even the Centers for Disease Control or other agencies can be warned of a possible outbreak of a problem which might put whole communities at risk. They can also input their observations, which would be correlated with individuals’ reports and inputs.
An example might be tracking reports of serious illnesses, like cancer, tuberculosis, STDs, and so on. Individual data points can be stored securely and privacy can be protected to as great a degree as the users and contributors choose, but when a noticeable trend or concentration of data points “rings a bell somewhere,” users could be choose to be contacted “by the system” to encourage them to get to a doctor, hospital, or call “911 Now!”
Following the spread of a dangerous virus. Or being able to track an e-coli outbreak back to a starting point.
Discovering the number of people having the same problem with a defective part of their car.
Reporting a new spam virus.
Finding people with common interests to form or join a group or club.
Think outside the search engine. Think outside the email package.
Better than GoogleFace, for sure, or Facegle… Whatever.
I’ll leave that to the real marketing gurus.
Maybe just “The Network,” again. Or “Mosaic.”

|Taraji P. Henson|
Taraji at the 15th Screen Actors Guild Awards, Shrine Auditorium, Los Angeles, January 25, 2009
|Born||Taraji Penda Henson
September 11, 1970 (age 41)
Washington, D.C., United States
Taraji Penda Henson (born September 11, 1970) is an American actress and singer. She is best known for her roles as Yvette in Baby Boy (2001), Shug in Hustle and Flow (2005) and Queenie in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008), for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 2009. In 2009, she appeared in Tyler Perry’s I Can Do Bad All By Myself as April, an alcoholic singer. She currently co-stars in the CBS series Person of Interest.
Henson was born in Southeast Washington, D.C., the daughter of Bernice Gordon, a corporate manager at Woodward & Lothrop, and Boris Henson, a janitor and fabricator. She is a relative of Matthew Henson, discoverer of the Geographic North Pole. Her first and middle name are of Swahili origin.
Henson spent summers at her grandparents’ house in suburban Southern Maryland. She attended Oxon Hill High School in Oxon Hill, Maryland. She first attended NC A&T, where she started a major in Electrical Engineering. She later transferred to Howard University. She worked two jobs—in the morning as a secretary at the Pentagon and in the night as a singing and dancing waitress on a dinner cruise ship—The Spirit of Washington—to pay for Howard University. She won the Triple Threat Award and graduated with a degree in Theater Arts.
Henson has appeared in the films Four Brothers (2005), Talk To Me (2007), Smokin’ Aces (2007), The Family That Preys, and Hurricane Season (2009). In late 2008, she starred opposite Brad Pitt in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Henson plays the role of Queenie, Benjamin’s mother, in a performance which has garnered critical acclaim and an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress. She noted in an interview that, “Queenie is the embodiment of unconditional love.”
Henson has also been a cast member on several television shows, including Lifetime Television’s The Division and ABC’s Boston Legal for one season. Her recurring appearances in television include the character Angela Scott on ABC’s Eli Stone in December 2008. She has guest-starred on several television shows, such as the WB Television Network‘s Smart Guy, playing the role of Monique (1997–1998); the Fox series House in 2005; and CBS‘s CSI: Crime Scene Investigation in 2006. She also starred on an episode of Sister, Sister. In 2011, Henson was cast in the CBS crime-suspense series Person of Interest.
Henson made her singing debut in Hustle & Flow; she provided the vocals for the Three 6 Mafia track “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp“. The song won an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2006, giving Three 6 Mafia the distinction of becoming the first Black hip-hop act to win in that category. Henson performed the song at the live Oscar ceremony on March 5, 2006 with the group. Additionally, she performed the song “In My Daughter’s Eyes” on the 2006 charity album Unexpected Dreams – Songs From the Stars.
Henson joined PETA in its campaign against the use of animal products in clothing. Henson has stated “I don’t think a living being should suffer for the sake of fashion, period. End of story… You don’t have to kill an animal just because you want to be hot and fly. And I really stand by that.” A nude ad for the Fur? I’d Rather Go Naked campaign has been released with Taraji P. Henson as the latest celebrity model.

Dr. William L. Sheals, Spirit-filled teacher, great visionary, loving, and dedicated pastor are all words that adequately describe this great

In 1990, God gave Bishop Sheals a great vision of transforming a 32 acre junk yard, into a beautiful complex where God would be glorified. He wrote the vision and printed it for all to see. After much prayer and hard work, this great vision began to manifest in 1992. Today this awesome community is known as the “City of Hope” which houses a Child Development Center, Youth Center, Senior Citizen Center and Adult Fitness Center, and Mall with a beauty & barber salon, caterer, bakery and a print shop. The mall also has an employment service called “Hope for the Future.” However, it doesn’t stop there. The City of Hope also has a fully accredited beautiful Christian
Academy where children from K4 – 12th grade are educated. The campus also boasts an accredited Bible College.
His entertainment business credits include:

president of the N. Metro 100 Black Men in 1993, recipient of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Drum Major Award in 1999, and Who’s Who in Black America
in 2002, and most recently Bishop Sheals received the Gwinnett County NCCAP Lifetime Achievement Award. He is currently serving as Ambassador
of Reconciliation and Goodwill for Israel and is also acknowledged in History Maker’s African-American History Archive.
Bishop Sheals is fun-loving and conservative with a great sense of humor. He is happily married to Patricia and they have two children Ryan and Ari.
