    Who Am I ???

    About meWelcome and Thank you for visiting.

    BGTV Media Online blog features the truth of what is going on in our world today. Regular people with regular lives and their experiences with life. This blog features videos that I feel will be helpful in Education of the outside world and the struggles we face as humans to survive. Some videos will be for entertainment as well.

    I find that people in different countries and cultures are just the same as me and you. I really didn’t feel that way until I moved to California in 2003 and started meeting people from all walks of the world.

    Being a southern small town girl from the east coast so used to dealing mainly with only two races(black and white), I was really fascinated when I arrived in California.

    The hot weather and the smell of different exotic foods in the air immediately drew me to love this place. Besides that now I felt free to be myself and live my life.

    Over the years I have met (OMG) I can’t even begin to count how many people, but many became work associates and some good friends.

    Getting to know people and their cultures I began to understand that we all are the same. We all breathe the air and have to attend to everyday life situations that may come our way.

    Modeling was one of my professions and in doing that I have come to understand the true beauty of a person on the inside and out. I understand that it’s not what’s on the outside that is true beauty, but what’s on the inside as beauty is skin deep, but ugly is too the bone. Honestly I hate stuck up people and folks who think they are all that. After going through many challenges in my life, I understand human nature and think and understand the concepts of life and human beings well. This in the long run have taught me how to associate with people as an individual as well as a group.

    Now I have made it my business to spread the word and the truth about so many unfortunate people and the disasters that strike their lives.

Revolt at “Ritmo”: Dire Conditions in For-Profit Texas Immigration Jail Spark Prisoner Uprising

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-02-24

In Texas, up to 2,000 immigrant prisoners in Raymondville staged a two-day uprising to protest inadequate medical care at a privately run prison. After refusing to eat breakfast on February 20, prisoners seized control of part of the prison and set fires. Critics have described the jail as “Ritmo” — short for Raymondville’s Guantánamo prison — or simply “tent city,” since most of the prison population sleeps in massive Kevlar tents. In a report last year, the American Civil Liberties Union described living conditions as “[not] only foul, cramped and depressing, but also overcrowded.” The Willacy County Correctional Center in Raymondville is owned and operated by Management & Training Corporation, a private company based in Utah. It is one of 13 privately run so-called “Criminal Alien Requirement” prisons. The latest reports indicate that the prisoners are being relocated from the facility after it was deemed “uninhabitable.” We speak to Carl Takei, a staff attorney with the ACLU’s National Prison Project. Last year he wrote the report, “Warehoused and Forgotten: Immigrants Trapped in Our Shadow Private Prison System.”

He Changed Minds”: Malcolm X Remembered by Daughter Ilyasah Shabazz & Friend A. Peter Bailey

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-02-24

As Democracy Now! continues to mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Malcolm X, we are joined by his daughter, Ilyasah Shabazz, and friend, A. Peter Bailey. Both were inside the Audubon Ballroom on Feb. 21, 1965, the day Malcolm X was shot dead. Shabazz was just two years old, while Bailey was among the last people to speak with Malcolm X that day. Shabazz is a community organizer, motivational speaker and author of several books, including the young adult-themed “X: A Novel” and a memoir, “Growing Up X.” Bailey is a journalist, author and lecturer who helped Malcolm X found the Organization of Afro-American Unity and served as one of the pallbearers at his funeral. Bailey is the author of several books, including “Witnessing Brother Malcolm X, The Master Teacher.” Shabazz and Bailey discuss the circumstances surrounding Malcolm X’s killing and share personal reflections on his life and legacy.

50 Years Later, Malcolm X’s Family Gather at Place of His Murder to Honor Revolutionary Life, Legacy 

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-02-24

This weekend, people around the country marked the 50th anniversary of the assassination of El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, known as Malcolm X — one of the most influential political figures of the 20th century. In New York City, family members and former colleagues led a memorial ceremony in the former Audubon Ballroom where Malcolm X was gunned down on February 21, 1965. The Audubon Ballroom is now the Malcolm X and Betty Shabazz Memorial and Education Center. We hear some of the event’s speakers, including Malcolm X’s daughter Ilyasah Shabazz. We broadcast an excerpt of our 2006 interview with the late civil rights activist Yuri Kochiyama, who witnessed the assassination and held Malcolm X as he lay dying. We also air the Pacifica Archives recording of the 1965 eulogy delivered by the actor and activist Ossie Davis.

Rejecting Austerity, Greece Squares Off with Its Creditors & Risks Future in Eurozone

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-02-19

Less than a month after the anti-austerity Syriza party swept to victory in Greece, a major dispute has broken out between Greece’s new leaders and European finance ministers. On Monday, talks between Greece and its European creditors collapsed amid disagreement over the future of German-backed austerity. Greek negotiators rejected a deal to extend the terms of the current bailout scheme with no alterations to the austerity terms. Greece is reportedly now planning to submit a request to the eurozone to extend a “loan agreement” for up to six months, but Germany says no such deal is being offered and that Athens must stick to the terms of its existing international bailout. Lawmakers from the ruling Syriza party say Greek voters had rejected the terms of the bailout and that Greece would not be intimidated into accepting them. The breakdown in talks has raised fears Greece may be on the verge of leaving the eurozone. We are joined by British journalist Paul Mason, who has closely covered Greece’s economic crisis for years.

“The Last Farmer in Fukushima’s Post-Nuclear Wasteland: VICE INTL (Japan)”

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-02-19

Two years since the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant went into full meltdown, and the resulting 20km evacuation zone was enforced, one farmer still remains behind braving high levels of radiation and loneliness to tend to abandoned animals. His name is Naoto Matsumura, and he is the last man standing in the ghost town of Tomioka. Another farmer, Kenji Hasegawa’s town of Iidate was also evacuated due to high levels of radiation, he sought refuge in temporary housing. Faced with a post­nuclear world both these men share brutally honest views on the state of their lives, TEPCO, government inaction and some of the hardest situations they have had to face in the midst of overwhelming radioactivity.

Inside the Vaccine War: Measles Outbreak Rekindles Public Health Debate

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-02-06

The federal government has confirmed more than 100 people across 14 states have now developed measles. Public health officials suspect the outbreak, which is concentrated in California, began when an infected person visited Disneyland in Anaheim in December. In recent years, a growing number of parents have opted not to have their children vaccinated, claiming a link between vaccines and autism. The prestigious medical journal Lancet published a study in 1998 showing such a link, but the study was later retracted and has been widely discredited. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in 12 children born in the United States is not receiving their first dose of MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine on time.

Several potential Republican presidential candidates have weighed in on the debate. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, an ophthalmologist, said he had heard of instances where vaccines caused “mental disorders.” New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said vaccinating kids is a matter of “parental choice.” We spend the hour discussing the vaccine debate and public health with three guests (read full bios below):

“The World Championship Of Chess Boxing”

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-02-02

Chess Boxing: The weird sports hybrid that brings together mind and muscle

Step into a Chessboxing ring, where brawn meets pawn and a checkmate is as powerful as an uppercut. Since 2003, the high octane world of Chessboxing has offered a bizarre fusion of chess and boxing.

“We bring a combination of the number one thinking sport with the number one fighting sport… 6 rounds of chess and 5 rounds of boxing”, says Chessboxing founder Iepe Rubingh. Most sports require brains as well as brawn; in Chessboxing they are pitted against each other.”Fighting and thinking at the same time, it’s very hard”, says a fan of the growing craze.

“Death in a Can: Australia’s Euthanasia Loophole – VICE INTL (Australia)”

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-01-30

Max Dog Brewing sells canisters of nitrogen for carbonating beer, or killing yourself, depending on who you ask. We asked the man behind the company and euthanasia advocate Dr Philip Nitschke, who in 1996 became the world’s first physician to administer a legal, lethal injection in Northern Australia. The Australian government later quashed the North’s euthanasia law, so Philip set up an organization called Exit International to help advise over-fifties on taking matters into their own hands. Since then he’s pioneered several suicide devices, written three books, and formed a political party, all in the pursuit of legalized euthanasia. Source:VICE

“Alone in the Woods: Harmony Korine’s The Legend of Cambo (Full Length)”

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-01-30

While his parents were out working four jobs, Cambo spent his time learning how to survive in the rough backwoods of Alabama. When they went through a brutal divorce, he naturally fled to the woods to be alone. No traffic, no people, no responsibility—just pure survival. The plan was to wait out his adolescence there until he could legally live life without his parents. He ended up spending two years alone in the wild. This episode of Profiles by VICE, from director Harmony Korine, tells Cambo’s story. Source:VICE

“Vanguard of the Revolution”: New Film Chronicles Rise of Black Panthers & FBI’s War Against Them

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-01-30

With groups around the country taking on issues of police brutality and accountability, we go back 50 years to another movement confronting the same issues. We spend the hour looking at a new documentary that just premiered at the Sundance Film Festival called, “The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution.” It tells the history of the Black Panther Party through rare archival footage and interviews with party leaders, rank and file members, journalists — and even police and FBI informants. We feature extended excerpts from the film, and speak with one its subjects, Kathleen Cleaver, who served as communications secretary of the Black Panther Party and is now a law professor at Emory University. We also speak with Stanley Nelson, the film’s award-winning director. The film is set to play in theaters and air on PBS later this year. Source:Democracy Now

The Holocaust Perpetrator Protected By Australian Law

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-01-29

War Criminal (2000) – Is it too late to try alleged war criminals of WWII?

Today, they are old men barely capable of walking or even breathing on their own. But 70 years ago, they were responsible for turning thousands of Jews and Communists over to Nazi forces. Is it too late to try alleged war criminals of WWII?

An old man stands by the window of the jail where his friends were routinely murdered. “I ate the bread of dead men,” he says. “…A man dies next to me. So my neighbour and I share his bread and eat it.” Lithuania is reluctant to admit collaboration with the Nazis during WWII, despite the fact that an overwhelming 94% of the country’s Jewish population died during this period. This is the highest proportion anywhere else in Europe, even Germany. Until last week Lithuania had never prosecuted an alleged war criminal. Then, in the first Holocaust conviction in the former USSR, a Lithuanian court found a 93-year old former US citizen guilty of collaborating with the Nazis. But he was deemed too ill to serve a prison sentence. Lithuania has now also cleared the way for an extradition from Britain of a Lithuanian-born man suspected of war crimes. With overwhelming evidence, this documentary shows that it is high time for justice.
