Things Men Do That Make Women Cringe

93.1 WZAK

Not Return Phone Calls

We have all had that experience where he said he would call, but he never does. Now, we are contemplating whether we should call him first. Then again, maybe we would look too desperate. Still can’t figure this one out. Why don’t men just keep their word and their actions follow suit.

 

Take Too Long To Text Back

Texting is just not a manly thing to do. When you text him, he takes forever to respond. The funny thing is when you two are together, he’s always texting. What’s up with that? Maybe he’s just not interested in what you’re talking about or doing something “more important

Obama: ‘No Excuse’ for Health Care Signup Problems

Black America Web

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obamaon Monday offered “no excuses” — and little explanation — for the computer bugs still frustrating Americans who are trying to enroll online for insurance plans at the center of his health care law. But software developers tasked with building the site said they saw signs a year ago that the debut could fail.

One source of the troubles appears to be the testing procedures employed before the rollout three weeks ago. Several developers of the HealthCare.gov website told The Associated Press they were worried for months about the system’s readiness and whether the software meant to link key computer systems was being properly put through its paces.

In addition, congressional investigators raised concerns before the rollout that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services had taken on the job of testing the computer systems for the new markets during the final weeks before…

NJ Governor Ends Gay Marriage Fight as Couples Wed

Black America Web

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie dropped his legal challenge to same-sex marriages on Monday, removing the possibility that the vows of couples who began getting married hours earlier could be undone by a court.

“Although the governor strongly disagrees with the court substituting its judgment for the constitutional process of the elected branches or a vote of the people, the court has now spoken clearly as to their view of the New Jersey Constitution and, therefore, same-sex marriage is the law,” Christie’s spokesman Michael Drewniak said in a statement. “The governor will do his constitutional duty and ensure his administration enforces the law as dictated…

Charting 5 Centuries of African American History

Black America Web

NEW YORK (AP) — Slavery in the United States was once a roaring success whose wounds still afflict the country today.

So says Henry Louis Gates, Jr., who examines both its success and shame in “The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross,” his new PBS documentary series that traces 500 years of black history.

Slavery is a perfect example of why we need limits on the more unfortunate aspects of human nature,” he says. “Slavery was capitalism gone berserk.”

The horrifically profitable practice of slavery and the brutal inhumanity of Jim Crow loom large in “The African Americans” (premiering Tuesday at 8 p.m. EDT; check local listings), which, through its six hours, performs a neat trick: Its reach extends far beyond American shores, venturing through the Caribbean region and all the way to Africa, while deftly folding this sprawl of black history into the larger American story that…
