PUBLISHER'S PEACEShock the World....!
After what many are calling Rahm's $5 million bail out, and his ignorance that he never saw the video that's behind all of his recent troubles, as well as his refusal to fire the officer who committed an execution - now he has to face the many black youth who he's ignored during his administration.
Yep, there is a new group of young black voices who've not asked the current leadership for permission to exist. These groups have decided to organize and move forward with their aggressive positions against the mayor, Chicago's racist police force and anyone who stands in their way for progress and economic inclusion.
These new faces are angry, disappointed and fearless, but yet hopeful that change can happen - only if they take measures into their own hands. And taking measures into their own is exactly what they've done over the last week or so since the dash-cam footage was release showing the murder of one of their peers.
These dynamic and energetic youth groups organized the march downtown, which attracted the attention of our current, outdated leaders and some well established individuals in my peer group to join their fight for freedom. It was great to see these entities come together to shut down portions of the Magnificent Mile, and pause the Black Friday experience. Collectively, they shocked the world! Chicago will never be the same, again, thanks to these new faces of youthful leadership.
Reports from ShopperTrack indicated that the financial damage done by protesters was in excess of over $1.5 billion lost during the weekend movement from Friday to Sunday. This is huge! Black folks, accompanied by Whites, Hispanics, Asians, Arabs and others, created a blockage in front of major department stores and slowed down the flow of cash transactions. They shut it down!
This intrusion into the privileged lives of people who live blindly to the realities of the protesters were denied a certain freedom, which they didn't like. And Rahm had to respond. This is why he felt pressured on many fronts to dismiss McCarthy from his active duties. It was a glorious day for all of Chicago, especially the protesters and organizers. And as I've stated many times before, we must learn to celebrate the small successes. Because from where we come from, they're few and far in between.
While certain co-supporters and marchers were having a private 'get mine' meeting last evening, the young organizers assembled in front of the 35th Street police station and hosted a party with over 300 strong to celebrate McCarthy's firing. What was amazingly awesome and gutsy, is that when the news media showed up to report on their activities of excitement, NWA was blasting from the loud speakers and Ice Cube was reciting his famous verse, "F_ _ _ Tha Police." It was shocking!
Black people, take my word for it, we have so much to be excited about. These respectable and well trained and organized young men and women are doing it the right way. They're bringing home the prize and we should embrace and council them all together. They need our support and our commitment to stand by them. They shocked the world.... and the world had a front row seat to see Chicago collectively come together to demand reform. And clearly, these actions will come with results.
Lets see what trick the mayor has up his sleeve. One thing is for sure, if Emanuel fails to deliver on his promise to feed the hungry, these young soldiers will not hesitate to starve others, as they, again, shock the world back into reality - and that's that black lives matter! Peace and One Love.

Wendell Phillips wins State Class 4A Football State Championship. Congratulations to Phillips for becoming the first ever Public League state champion in football. Phillips did it in dominating fashion, limiting their opponent,Althoff High School to negative yards on the ground. Althoff scored a touchdown on their first drive. After that it was all Phillips. Althoff could not stop the punishing run game of Phillips as running back Khamari Mosby (jr) and quarter back Quayvon Skanes(sr) had over 100 yards rushing each.
Amir Watts (sr, DL) had a fumble recovery and a touchdown. That was one of 5 Althoff turnovers. Phillips scored a 4th quarter field goal to give them a state record 51 points scored in a class 4A state title game. Phillips ends their season with a perfect 14-0 record. In 2010, the Phillips football program was on the verge of collapse. Five years later they're Public League's first ever state champions in football.
This morning a group of men along with some women gathered in front of Phillip's to greet the young men who brought home the state championship. A line was formed as the football team, its coaches and principal, as well as other students walk through to a loud round of applauds and screams. Thanks toKen Dunkinand Pat Dowell for requesting that the community come and show some love for our future leaders - MG Media

HEALTHY COMMUNITIESComer Children’s Q&A: How to Use Diet to Help Control Pediatric Epilepsy
Ketogenic diets are widely accepted and effective dietary regimens prescribed for the treatment of pediatric epilepsy. A ketogenic diet is traditionally offered when medication alone fails to control a child's seizures. Experts do not fully understand exactly how a ketogenic diet works -- and, it may not be an effective treatment option for every child. Yet, we do know that some children stop having seizures or have reduced seizure frequency with these prescribed medical diets.
At the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital Pediatric Epilepsy Center, we offer the classic ketogenic diet and a modified Atkins Diet(MAD). Our multidisciplinary team provides highly specialized care and consultation, along with the combined expertise of pediatric neurologists, pediatric epileptologists, a ketogenic dietitian, pediatric neurology nurses, a social worker and a case manager.
Q: What is a ketogenic diet?
A: A ketogenic diet consists of a high percentage of calories from fat, with an adequate amount of protein and a low percentage of carbohydrate intake, depending on the type and ratio of the diet. Ketogenic diets are meticulously customized according to each child’s calorie requirement and nutritional status.
Q: How does a ketogenic diet work?
A: Experts do not fully understand how ketogenic diets control seizures. The high-fat, low-carbohydrate combination causes the production of ketone bodies, which are substances produced as a result of fat breaking down in the body. It is believed that ketone bodies have an anti-seizure effect. If your child’s neurologist prescribes a ketogenic diet, be sure to follow instructions precisely for the best results. For example, if your child consumes too many carbohydrates, his or her body may not produce ketone bodies and the diet will not work.
Q: What makes a child eligible for a ketogenic diet for epilepsy treatment?
A: Ketogenic diets are traditionally used as a treatment option for drug-resistant (intractable) epilepsy. These are children whose seizures are not completely controlled after trying two appropriate antiepileptic medications. Your child's neurologist has the expertise to conduct a thorough medical evaluation and determine whether or not a ketogenic diet could be an appropriate treatment option. Parents should not start a child on a ketogenic diet without specific recommendation, instruction and supervision from the child's neurologist.
Q: Will my child still need medication if he or she starts a ketogenic diet?
A: Neurologists may prescribe a ketogenic diet in addition to medication or as a standalone treatment option. In the most effective cases, a child may experience enough improvement on a ketogenic diet to safely reduce or eliminate medication. At the Pediatric Epilepsy Center, our team of experts closely monitors each child's progress and adjusts the treatment regimen as needed for the best possible results.
Q: In general, how long does a child stay on the ketogenic diet?
A: Neurologists assess several factors and maintain ongoing discussion with the family in order to determine how long a child remains on a ketogenic diet. The amount of time varies from child to child, based on effectiveness, compliance and tolerance.

TBTNEWS HEADLINESAlderman Praises Community Protests
After months of pushing for Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy’s ouster, 5th Ward Alderman Leslie Hairston believes the recent protests forced the mayor to ask for his resignation, which Hairston says is too little too late.
“We need to have a clearance sale in the police department and get rid of everyone who McCarthy brought with him,” says Hairston. “The problems with the city’s police department are systemic and she points to a“blue code of silence” that has allowed police misconduct going back toJon Burgeand the recent promotion of Constantine “Dean” Andrews - the chief of detectives, whose promotion McCarthy announced in October, who is accused of creating a false witness statement in the murder of David Koschman by Mayor Richard M. Daley’s nephew—Richard Vanecko.
The 5th Ward Alderman, who also is an attorney, scoffs at Emanuel’s appointment of a six-person task force on police accountability.“You can’t appoint a new panel with the same old people. You can’t just recycle people and expect a different outcome.” The Southside alderman says she would like to see a younger police commander from Chicago appointed superintendent. Hairston believes the current system stifles younger African American officers who may have new and effective ideas. For more information, contact Delmarie Cobb at 773.373.3860.
National Bar Ass. Demand Resignation
The National Bar Association (“NBA”) calls for the resignation of Cook County State Attorney Anita Alvarez following the year long delay in filing murder charges against Chicago Police Officer Jason Van Dyke in the shooting death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald.
McDonald was gunned down by Van Dyke on October 20, 2014. Van Dyke had remained in a paid limited duty position on the police department until last Tuesday. On Thursday, Judge Franklin Valderrama ordered that the video be released by November 25. Van Dyke was charged with first-degree murder on November 24, shortly before the video was released. Until last week, the city had fought against releasing of the video.
“It is unacceptable that it took over a year to file these charges against Officer Van Dyke. I believe that had there not been a court order to release the video, Officer Van Dyke would not have been charged,”said NBAPresident Benjamin L. Crump. For media inquiries contact Lonita Baker, NBA Chief of Communications, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 502-210-7062.
