    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.

“Countdown to Extinction: Episode 3 Sneak Peek (VICE on HBO)”

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-03-26

During the last six decades, the boom of industrial fishing has nearly wiped out the top level of the marine food chain, depleting about 90 percent of the world’s large predatory fish. While big fishing operations continue to prosper as they go deeper into the ocean, small-scale coastal fishermen continue to seek out new fishing practices to survive. Some have even gone so far as to use such rudimentary practices as dynamite fishing to catch a few fish while wreaking havoc on the ecosystem.

“My Lai Revisited: 47 Years Later, Seymour Hersh Travels to Vietnam Site of U.S. Massacre He Exposed “

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-03-26

 Fifty years after the U.S. ground invasion of Vietnam began, we look back at the 1968 My Lai massacre, when American troops killed hundreds of civilians. Journalist Seymour Hersh broke the story of the massacre and cover-up, winning a Pulitzer Prize for his work. But Hersh never actually went there — he interviewed soldiers stateside. Forty-seven years later, he recently traveled to My Lai for the first time, which he documents in a new article for The New Yorker, “The Scene of the Crime: A Reporter’s Journey to My Lai and the Secrets of the Past.” Hersh joins us to discuss how he exposed the massacre nearly five decades ago and what it was like to visit My Lai for the first time.

Private Prisons for Immigrant Families Grow Despite Court Ruling Against “Detention as Deterrence”

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-03-26

The Obama administration continues to expand its controversial practice of detaining mothers and their children despite a judge’s order that using it to deter mass migration is illegal. Starting last summer, thousands of Central American women with kids as young as a few months old crossed into the United States seeking asylum. Even though many were later found to have a “credible fear” of violent persecution, they found themselves rounded up and put into detention, with little chance for freedom until they were deported. But last month, a federal judge ordered immigration authorities to begin releasing the women and children. He found the Obama administration’s policy of detaining them in order to deter others from coming was illegal. Since then, more families have been granted bond and released, while others who are unable to afford the bonds remain locked up. They are held at one of two new family detention centers run by private prison companies in southern Texas. We air an on-the-ground report from Texas by Democracy Now! producer Renée Feltz, who speaks to a recently released mother and her son. We are also joined by Barbara Hines, former director of the Immigration Clinic at the University of Texas Law School. Hines’ affidavit in a lawsuit challenging detention of women and children as a method of deterrence to mass migration was cited by the federal judge in his order to halt the practice.

“To Serve and Protect: VICE on HBO Debrief (Episode 2)”

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-03-16

The fatal shooting of Michael Brown in the summer of 2014 sparked a series of protests in Ferguson, Missouri which quickly spread across the country. The strength of the law enforcement response in Ferguson to these protests set off a fierce debate about the increasing militarization of the American police force. Thomas Morton goes to Ferguson at the height of the protests to get an in-depth look at the situation on the ground. He then goes to Urban Shield in Oakland, California and talks to expert Radley Balko to learn how US SWAT teams and police are being trained and how they are getting military grade equipment to police their local communities. Senator Rand Paul discusses the efforts being made in Washington to address this issue, and its underlying causes.

Juanita Nelson, a longtime civil rights activist, war tax resister and farmer, has died at the age of 91 in Greenfield, Massachusetts.

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-03-16

She was first arrested in the early 1940s protesting lunch counter segregation in Washington, D.C. During World War II, she met her future husband, Wally Nelson, while he was in jail for refusing to fight in the war. In the late 1940s, they worked with CORE, Congress of Racial Equality, and helped organized the first freedom rides in the South. At the same time, they stopped paying taxes for war. In the 1970s, the Nelsons moved to New Mexico. “Fueled by a desire to live more simply in the face of U.S. war in Vietnam and to be less involved in the economic milieu that spawns war, they made their living by growing and selling produce and attempting to become as self-sufficient as possible,” reads her obituary. “They learned to heat and cook with wood, preserve food, and make their own soap.” They later moved to Woolman Hill, a Quaker conference center in Deerfield, Massachusetts. She helped found the Valley Community Land Trust, Pioneer Valley War Tax Resisters, and the Greenfield Farmers’ Market. In 2005, Amy Goodman interviewed Juanita Nelson in Northampton, Massachusetts.

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.
