  • Mum: I think I want to watch that series you were watching a few weeks ago
  • Me: Which one?
  • Mum: It was something like 'orphan is the new black'
  • Me: That's two separate shows
  • Mum: No
  • there was a one with dark hair in glasses that you thought was hot
  • and i'm pretty sure she was a lesbian
  • because she was going out with that blonde lady
  • Me: That still could be either show
  • Mum: I think there were clones
  • Me: There we go.

The little league baseball squad Jackie Robinson West, hailing from the South Side of Chicago, has just become the first all-Black team to win the US Championship at the Little League World Series, beating the previously undefeated Las Vegas (incidentally, an all-white team) in a dramatic, hard-fought 7-5 game. What a great year for this event, first with the Mo’ne Davis story and now this. JRW demonstrated poise, determination and mental toughness, coming back twice from deficits, outlasting their opponents down the stretch, scoring with small ball to grind out the win. 
Jackie Robinson West is the first all-Black team to play in the Little League World Series since 1983, when the same organization made its first appearance. Before that, back in 1955 — the year after Brown v. Board of Education ruled that segregation was unconstitutional — the Cannon Street YMCA All-Stars from Charleston, South Carolina, played their way to Williamsport for the final tournament, but white teams refused to play against them and white coaches organized a boycott against the 11- and 12-year-old African American players. The team attended the event, but watched the entire tournament from the bleachers rather than the field. 
Not so this year. JRW is the national champion. They play South Korea tomorrow for the international title and I’ll be cheering for them.

Joe Morton Creative Arts Emmy Awards

Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series

Scandal, ABC/ABC Studios, Joe Morton as Rowan Pope Accepting his first Emmy win — best guest actor in a drama series, for his turn on Scandal – Joe Morton thanked the show’s “scrumptious cast”  but said, “mostly I think I’d like to thank my parents, who are no longer with us, Joe and Evelyn,  who taught me about artistry and courage” as well as the  “genius — in capital letters, bold,  underlined, with lots of exclamation points —  of Shonda Rhimes.”

"14-year-old Parkview High School Freshman, Caleb Christian was concerned about the number of incidents of police abuse in the news.  Still, he knew there were many good police officers in various communities, but had no way of figuring out which communities were highly rated and which were not.  

So, together with his two older sisters: Parkview High School senior Ima Christian, and Gwinnett School of Math, Science, and Technology sophomore, Asha Christian, they founded a mobile app development company– Pinetart Inc., under which they created a mobile app called Five-O.

Five-O, allows citizens to enter the details of every interaction with a police officer.  It also allows them to rate that officer in terms of courtesy and professionalism and provides the ability to enter a short description of what transpired.  These details are captured for every county in the United States. Citizen race and age information data is also captured.

Additionally, Five-O allows citizens to store the details of each encounter with law enforcement; this provides convenient access to critical information needed for legal action or commendation.”
