The Holidays are a wonderful time of the year...even if they tend to start earlier and earlier each year. However, at least I did get a chance to get Thanksgiving out of the way before I got around to getting into Christmas.
As it gets deeper into the Holiday season, you might have felt the urge to participate in a few holiday festivities. Well, of course the "What's Happening Man" delivers once again. From shopping to helping the needy to downright partying until the break of dawn, I got you covered for your Holiday activities.

Kam Williams: Hi Soledad, thanks for another interview.
Soledad O'Brien: Thank you, Kam.
KW: Let's talk about your upcoming special. Where did you come up with the idea for Who Is Black in America?
SO: We were thinking about universal themes for "Black in America" that really touch people, that really matter to people, and one of the themes that we kept coming up with was colorism, discrimination based on skin tone. It was fascinating to hear the conversations that were happening between people who were light-skinned, people who were dark-skinned, and people somewhere in between. Just the hurt, the pain and anger on all sides was very interesting.

Our month-long focus on bankruptcies concludes with a focus on the Chapter 11 version. The key word is reorganization. Under Chapter 11, the debtor – commonly referred to as the debtor in possession (DIP) – retains control of the business and the assets. Individuals with high levels of debt also may file under Chapter 11.

Dear Lucy: I went with my husband to pay his cell phone bill and while we were there the salesperson told him about a special offer. My husband decided to take advantage of it as a gift to me. I was excited about the gift. But, there was a glitch with the process and the total amount kept changing. My husband is very patient with this sort of stuff and can talk about money all day long. I absolutely hate conversations about money and got so irritated that I told him I didn't want the gift. I am always sabotaging myself like this. Help!

Now that Thanksgiving has ended, all the turkey has been eaten, and your guests have returned to their destinations, now is the time to decide on a new course of action that will be beneficial for your overall health.
While holidays bring a lot of joy with them, they may also bring a lot of pain linked to the way that we feel once they are gone. We must examine ourselves and determine if we've had enough of this emotional-roller-coaster feeling.
