Doctors promote men’s health in Tesla tour – Rocky Mount Telegram

A Tesla Model S is charged on Nov. 14, 2013 at the Supercharger Station at the Gateway Centre.

For many men, health and wellness often takes a back seat to climbing the corporate ladder and family life, but a 24-hour road trip from Florida to New York is the platform two doctors are using to encourage men to make health a priority.

The doctors will stop along the way to charge their all-electric Tesla S in East Coast cities – including Rocky Mount – and talk with local people about men’s health issues.

“We recognize the urgent need for men to better understand their health,” Dr. Sijo Parekattil said. “And what better way to spread the word than by utilizing technology and uniting leading physicians to make an impact on men’s health?” (Source: Read more)

SouthWest Edgecombe Graduation 2014 Video/Photos

I asked to video the graduation on Friday night and I will not be getting paid to do  so. I normally don’t advertise videos/photos will be available for purchase because I don’t video for the money but to capture history. However if anyone should want a copy you need to contact me via inbox me on Facebook , email, call 252.314.5484 or mail to Curmilus Dancy II P.O. Box 1391, Pinetops NC 27864 to order you copy. I will not be making copies waiting for someone to purchase them so you need to give me your money on Friday evening after the graduation is over.

After the ceremony on the inside I will be outside videoing and taking photos so you need to see me then to place orders.

The video and photos will be online for viewing.

Another Parton-Connected Project In Trouble, Burke County development ramped up as Randy Parton Theatre collapsed – Carolina Journal Online

RALEIGH — Dare County real estate developer Ray Hollowell was counting on Dolly Parton and her family to help him transform the Pine Mountain development, located in southern Burke County, into a more upscale community that he renamed “The South Mountain Preserve.” Hollowell also was counting on Gov. Bev Perdue to help promote the project, and N.C. State University to help establish vineyards and a winery on the property.

Not long before, officials in Roanoke Rapids had counted on Dolly’s brother Randy and the Randy Parton Theatre to anchor a music district that would transform the economy of the region. Soon after the theater opened, however, it became a different kind of anchor, saddling the town with millions in debt and an underused performance facility. The project drew extensive coverage from news outlets across the state, led by reporting in Carolina Journal. (Source: Read more)

Black People And Their History Being Documented

I have been saying this and doing this for years. I said it back in the 90’s and that is why I first began video taping everything, had a newsletter, then moved on to a blog. I always stressed in meetings that we need our own communications network so that is why I do what I do. Them folks who agreed with me and had the money and resources to do it do nothing. But I have been struggling all of these years doing what I do but it has been well worth it. It has been effective and these folks have told me they love what I do but they haven’t loved it enough to donate to the cause. How many folks do you know who go to meetings and video them and make them available for others to watch in the convenience of their home, office or etc.? But no problem I am going to continue to do what I do when I can.
