career seekers on all the components of a pre-employment background check: employment
verification, education verification, references check, credit check, criminal records check, drug
screen and social media/internet check. In addition, career seekers are provided with strategies
on how to successfully pass a pre-employment background check and overcome barriers created
by a failed pre-employment background check.

Join Us For The Following Discussion:

Delayed Gratification

Wednesday, April 23rd

5pm – 6pm

In one study, preschoolers were brought into a room with several M&M’s on the table. They were told that they would be left alone for a while, (no time was given) and that, if they wanted to, they could eat the M&M’s. But if they waited without eating them until the adult returned, they would be given more (Again, no amount was indicated). After the experiment was finished, the children were then tracked for many years. The children who ate the M&M’s right away did poorly in school and in life; the children who were able to wait longer did better, and the children who waited until the adult returned with more M&M’s were exceptionally successful in school and life. They found that the ability to delay gratification was the single most important factor in success, compared to IQ, physical differences, race, sex, etc. They also noted the variety of coping mechanisms that the children used to avoid eating the M&M’s. Some covered their eyes, stood away, sang, tapped, yelled, etc. Discuss how we have succeeded or failed at delayed gratifications in our lives. Is the belief in an afterlife the ultimate delayed gratification? Is buying now and paying later part of it? Do the men who have the ability to save and those that don’t see a correlation? How much had this ability or lack of it affected our lives?

  • Jeffrey Booker 40 years in Chicago; the city does not work well.

    Wow! Very interesting; this goes a long way towards explaining a lot about the consequences of living in a consumption driven society. I look forward to the discussion.

Bob Moses, Fanny Lou Hamer, and Stokely Carmichael. I've brought back fictional characters from 'Prelude to a Dream' who will reappear in future productions in this canon of dramatic work I am creating.
...This current story...is based around the experiences of three young people who volunteer for the Mississippi Summer Project coordinated primarily by SNCC and CORE. Wendy, who is white, hails from a small town in southern Illinois. She grew up in a home that was a station on the Underground Railroad during slavery. Sam, also white, is from a very conservative California family that is not pleased by his decision to spend his summer in Mississippi. Finally, there is Cynthia, who is from a very affluent African American family in Washington, DC. She is as ill-prepared for the deep South as Wendy and Sam. Nothing will be quite the same for the three of them, the state of Mississippi, or America, by the end of Freedom Summer" (Alan Marshall).

Who' Interested in helping to involve all community groups and block clubs without any particular group taking credit other than passing the word! How about we all think about starting a Bronzeville Walking Club. Actually our own King Drive is the perfect terrain to launch the idea. We can all try to get neighbors to come out (and play) by walking each Saturday for a 1/2 hour, then an hour and 1 mile then 2 miles etc. We can be as creative as we like before and after - and get some exercise together!

Let's kick it off this the first Sat in May or the spring and then continue until summer's end. It would be great to fellowship after hibernating....as a result of a long and harsh winter. I know a few neighbors that would strongly consider- What do you think? Would you consider participating and share with others?

Why don't we meet to discuss ideas on creating a number of target places for a possible dog park in our community? Got a friendly dog that has good social skills and wanna play? Let's talk? I've noticed that more and more dog owners pass by our home and place of business, many residing in condos- and would likely want a place where their dogs can play, roam and socialize. Let's share ideas and meet and greet. Bring suggestions on places we can possibly target- vacant lot owned by city, vacant lot owned by private person, your own lot that you would allow dog owners to rent and fence in? I do know that many other neighborhoods in Chicago have created and achieved great strides with dog owners and places for dogs and dog owners to socialize and fellowship. Your thoughts? Do you know emails for other dog lovers? Do you have an interest?
