(PRINCETON - BMORENEWS - May 14, 2012) - The BMORENEWS Family is pleased to announce that nationally-recognized movie and book critic Lloyd “Kam” Williams will be honored at our “Global Forum on Women’s Empowerment”. The Forum will take place at the United Nations in New York City on Friday, June 15, 2012 from 11 am to 3 pm. As one our distinguished attendees, you will have the opportunity to: (1) meet representatives at Missions from around the world; (2) discuss ever-evolving challenges in the global business arena; (3) identify empowerment opportunities for women; and (4) develop action plans/items and execute effective follow-up strategies.
Voted Most Outstanding Journalist of the Decade by the Disilgold Soul Literary Review in 2008, Kam Williams is a syndicated film and book critic who writes for 100+ publications around the U.S., Europe, Asia, Africa, Canada and the Caribbean. He is a member of the New York Film Critics Online, the Black Film Critics Circle, the NAACP Image Awards Nominating Committee and Rotten Tomatoes. In addition to a BA in Black Studies from Cornell, he has an MA in English from Brown, an MBA from The Wharton School, and a JD from Boston University. Kam lives in Princeton, NJ with his wife and son.
According to BMORENEWS publisher Doni Glover, "For the uninitiated, Kam Williams is - by far - the finest in the country at what he does." He added, "Nobody writes more consistently and with more preparation than does he. He happens to be African American, but as for entertainment journalism, Kam is world-class. His contribution to the world of media in America and beyond is absolutely priceless. The way he brings the story out is like no other. And even more, Kam's interviewed every black star in the industry - just about!"
For the past decade, BMORENEWS has been organizing and presenting a plethora of business networking events to help empower entrepreneurs. Given the upcoming 10th anniversary for BMORENEWS.com, this marquee event is meant to represent our best. And that should include you! This UN forum is but another example of our dedication to business networking. It is part of our continuum of work that has brought together business deals for the past ten years.
Having been a part of business networking events around the country, this time we’re talking globally: How to sell books in Europe or get it published in Chinese or how to import leather from Ethiopia to make coats or shoes.

The Glover Report: ENERGY ASSISTANCE LINE ON N. CHARLES STREET: You Never Know When You Might Need Assistance: Anyone can find themself in need
This letter is really on behalf of the voiceless, the people – including our beloved seniors – who have to stand in public on the street to get help. It is embarrassing to stand outside in a line. People already have their challenges, but to then put them on public display like animals in a zoo – all because they need help - is just downright rude.
One senior I talked to this morning in the Energy Assistance line on Charles Street could not understand why she had to stand for 45 minutes outside. “Suppose it rains!” she said. Read in Full >>
TGR: The People’s Plan to Dramatically Reduce Crime in Baltimore City : Children 1st Movement : Tyrone Powers, Ph.D., Executive Director : Leslie Parker Blyther, Director : Louis Hopson, Contributor
CHILDREN 1st MOVEMENT
Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.
- Malcolm X
All children in this country have the right to an education that enables them to learn and achieve at the highest level possible. This is a Human Right. To actualize this right, and therefore each child's potential, specific opportunities and support mechanisms or "Common Characteristics" must be present. No one characteristic is more important than another. All are required to provide the structure for ultimate student achievement and success.
The Baltimore City Public School System (BCPSS) must increase the educational options for all students. Parents must be empowered to become advocates for their children. BCPSS must provide an education that enables all students to make successful transitions to adulthood and to become vital contributors to their communities and to the world community.
We, as concerned citizens in Baltimore, are totally dedicated to assuring that our children receive what is rightfully theirs. Read in Full >>
