    Welcome to the EU Report for the two-week period from June 12-26. It is a little over one month since the horrific murder of George Floyd and people all across this nation have united to protest against systemic racism, economic inequality and police misconduct.

    Corporations are pledging millions of dollars to various anti-racism efforts, bigots are being identified and fired, and brutal police have been terminated and indicted in Minneapolis and Atlanta.

    Though much work remains to be done and there's still enormous changes that need to be enacted, there's the sense that for now at least many in positions of power in this society recognize the great mess and disparity 400 years of injustice has created.

    Sadly, there's an administration in power that's not just resistant to change, but is banking its re-election efforts on appealing to the same old racist attitudes and behavior that have resulted in America being where it is today.

    Fortunately, there are now more and more people not only opposed to it, but willing to openly fight to see a new day. Everything Underground remains committed to chronicling what's happening on a daily basis, both the triumphs and the setbacks, the positive achievements and the negative realities that still exist.

    We urge anyone who hasn't yet joined our national network of organizations and individuals to please do so now and support our mission of empowerment and uplift. For membership details or more information please contact us at www.everythingunderground.com.

    Here are the Top 5 stories:

    1. A Black-owned charter yacht business is launched by an HBCU alum.

    2. Master P's rice company opens doors for other truly owned Black food businesses.

    3. Black entrepreneurs buy city blocks to pave the way for Black-owned businesses.

    4. Bermuda gets its first Black Woman Governor.

    5. A self-taught suit designer travels the world to custom fit his clients.

    Welcome to the EU Report for the week of June 5 - June 12. This is a pivotal time in America with protests continuing and the demand for police reform, social justice and a major expansion of economic opportunity at a peak.

    Companies across the nation are pledging millions of dollars in support to various Black businesses and vital causes, while those who openly espouse racism and hatred are being toppled from jobs and supervisory positions on a daily basis.

    No one should be fooled into thinking any of this means the end of systemic racism has arrived. It took centuries for things to get in their current condition, and while any positive changes and events are welcome, there's still a long, hard road ahead before this nation truly becomes in reality what it claims to be on paper.

    Towards that end, Everything Underground continues to update and inform about both important things happening in business, commerce and the economy regarding Black operations and outlets, as well as the ongoing battle against social inequity and economic disparity.

    The time is ideal for anyone who hasn't joined our national network of organizations and individuals to do so, and take advantage of the array of resources and knowledge at our disposal.

    We also urge you to regularly visit our Facebook page and blog for all the latest news and information. For membership details and updates on upcoming events visit www.everythingunderground.com.

    Here are our top five stories this week:

    1. A Nashville senior wins $20,000 on the Ellen Show.

    2. Lowe's allocates $25 million to aid Black businesses.

    3. Eight teen girls in Nashville organize a protest march that attracts more than 10,000 participants.

    4. A list of Black-owned alternative locations to Starbucks.

    5. A surge in interest and profits for Black owned businesses.

    Welcome to the return of the EU Report. Starting this month, we'll return to doing weekly updates. This last week has been a turbulent, yet rousing one, with marches and protests not just nationwide, but around the globe. Yes, some were marred by violence, but the overwhelming majority were peaceful, and all of them highlighted the rage resonating in Black communities over the long unresolved issue of police brutality.

    These marches were also distinguished by the participation of young people, and folks of multiple races and ages. But police misconduct and brutality is only one aspect of the systemic racism and economic inequality that's plagued this nation since its inception, an kept Blacks and other people of color from experiencing genuine opportunity and freedom.

    Here at EU we are carefully balancing things on our Facebook page between stories about economic victory and social injustice. We cannot separate the two. We need justice and economic opportunity, and we salute those who continue to fight for both, as well as those who manage to succeed in spite of the many obstacles placed in their path.

    As always, we invite those who haven't yet joined our national network of organizations and individuals to do so, and take advantage of the expertise and services we offer. For more information about upcoming events or membership details contact us at www.everythingunderground.com.

    These are our top 5 stories for week of May 30 - June 5.

    1. Four officers identified in George Floyd murder.

    2. Former defense secretary attacks Trump.

    3. Verizon commits $10 million to assist organizations involved in social justice efforts.

    4. An Alabama man is serving life sentence for crime of stealing $9.

    5. Minnesota upgrades charges against former officers in the Floyd case.

    As the world is reacting to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is necessary to understand how to build your immune system since there are no known vaccines or treatments yet for the infection. One of the best things to do in boosting the function of the immune system during this pandemic period.

    The CDC has also emphasized the fact that healthy diets can boost our immune system and this can be really helpful against the COVID-19 infection. Therefore, it is important for you to know some of the foods that can improve the function of your immune system.

    Citrus fruits are one of the foods widely recognized for boosting the immune system, these fruits contain vitamin C, which is an essential micronutrient. Vitamin C supports the immune system and it makes cells perform their functions properly. Examples of citrus fruits which are good sources of vitamin C include fruits such as lemons, tangerines, oranges, grapefruits, and limes.

    The most vital activity of vitamin C in supporting the immune system is its activity in increasing the number of white blood cells which are the cells that fight infections. White blood cells are important to us because they also protect our bodies against infection. Additionally, vitamin C is active in the treatment and prevention of respiratory and systemic infections.

    Because your body is not capable of producing and storing vitamin C on its own, it is essential to eat rich sources of vitamin C regularly during this COVID-19 pandemic period. However, it is important to take vitamin C foods, particularly when you are feeling sick and when you the level of vitamin C in your body system is low.

    Other foods that can help your body during this COVID-19 pandemic period include garlic, almonds, and pomegranates. Almonds also contain vitamin C and vitamin E which a powerful antioxidant, which also supports the immune system. Garlic also contains components that enhance the function of the immune system and it can be added to most meals. Pomegranates have good antiviral properties and it can also boost the function of your immune system.

    Among the many services and areas of expertise that are available in the Eu Network, none are more essential to success in our view than having a strong image and presence. That is very difficult without a good media kit. We have compiled some ideas and suggestions that we feel should be in any good media kit for a topflight business or organization.

    Media Kit

    I - Introduction

    In today's highly competitive environment, it is viral for any organization, company or business to differentiate themselves from others. Being able to immediately identify and emphasize your specialties, areas of expertise, past successful experiences, and plans to ensure future success are all critical to enjoying consistent progress.

    Everything Underground offers high quality, distinctive media services, one of which is the preparation of a media kit that will fully define and cite the reasons why your firm or organization should be chosen for key assignments and important jobs.

    II - Essential items

    A - Bio

    B - Business/Organizational profile

    C - List of prior successes/clients

    D - Profile photo

    A. - Bio

    A well written, concise, comprehensive bio provides potential clients with enough information to know who you are, why you're in business, and what you hope to accomplish. You can include enough biographical detail to highlight whatever personal details you feel are relevant, while omitting anything you consider invasive or unimportant.

    B. - Business/Organizational profile

    Here's where you briefly describe what you do, who you serve, your objectives, philosophy, in short all the things about your business or operation you feel a client should know.

    C - List of prior clients/accomplishments

    This provides a guide to past achievements, and can double as a set of references.

    D - Profile photo

    This was widely considered an optional feature In the past, but today folks definitely prefer to see potential new clients. The photo can include as many or few key people in your company as desired. Video presentations are also now often being substituted for still photographs.

    III - Optional items

    A. - Awards/Citations

    B. - List of planned future objectives/goals

    C. - Closing statement

    A. - Awards/Citations

    If you've won any local, regional. or national awards or citations, you can include them in your media kit. Some companies are reluctant to disclose this, while others make it part of their advertising campaigns, but it's strictly a matter of choice.

    B. -- List of planned future objectives/goals

    Some ambitious companies and/or individuals like to include things they hope to accomplish, or ideas and objectives they're pursuing. Others see this as prematurely disclosing company strategy. But it can also be touted as examples of visionary thinking.

    C - Closing statement

    This can be an additional appeal for your company to be selected, thanks for consideration, last minute reflections, or a combination of all three. It's not essential to include it, but it can be a good way to make a few last minute points, plus leave a good final impression.

    Everything Underground hopes that you will recognize the value of having a superior media kit. We're living in uncertain times and an age where image and brand are frequently the most important things in terms of expanding or restricting overall productivity. We urge you to take full advantage of our services. We can provide you with any version or variation of a media kit, a basic one with just the essential items or a more expanded one.

    We also offer other media services. Please feel free to contact us at everythingunderground.com for a more detailed list of our additional services, or contact us directly at 317-958-3876 ( International +1-317-956-4876). We thank you in advance for your consideration.

    Everything Underground's Trailblazer Retrospectives

    By Ron Wynn

    Everything Underground launches a new monthly series of articles saluting some of our past Trailblazer Awards winners. These are people who've made giant strides and major contributions in various communities for decades, and are inspirations to many.

    Yet they have seldom received the praise and recognition they deserve. We'll present both biographical sketches and let them speak about their experiences and motivations. It's a chance to get a closer look at some amazing people and get ready for the 2021 Trailblazer Awards as well.

    Our first profile is on Commissioner Maida Coleman, a highly respected and admired resident of Missouri.

    Maida Coleman

    Public service has been the driving force in Maida Coleman's distinguished career, She was born in the small southeastern Missouri town of Sikeston Her background includes growing up in a four-room home with an outhouse, one she now jokingly claims was the best outhouse around. Commissioner Coleman labeled it "The talk of the town. It was a two seater with a concrete floor." Her grandmother hung a mirror in it and added a picture of flowers. During her youth Ms. Coleman chopped and picked cotton, starting at age 12.

    But a thirst for knowledge led her to excel in school. She became one of Sikeston High School’s first Black cheerleaders, and the first member of her family to attend college. After college came marriage and divorce, followed by a period of personal struggle. Those times included living in public housing, receiving welfare and food stamps (then called Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC). At the time, meeting the poverty standards enabled her children to qualify for the school's free lunch program.

    But through this period, Commissioner Coleman never lost faith in herself, nor wavered in her desire and determination to achieve and work on behalf of others. She eventually earned a B.A. degree in journalism from Lincoln University in Jefferson City and later was awarded a Doctor of Humane Letters Degree from Harris-Stowe State University in St. Louis.

    From 2001-2009,  she served as a State Representative and State Senator from St. Louis. Commissioner Coleman was the first Black woman in state history to serve as Senate Minority Leader. During her tenure she sponsored the Hot Weather Law. This prevents utility companies from disconnecting cooling-related service for residential customers during extreme summer weather. She also sponsored legislation that became law to protect children from lead poisoning.

    Maida Coleman was appointed to the Missouri Public Service Commission (MPSC) in August 2015. Her expertise has been utilized in several capacities She is Chair of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) Committee on Consumers and the Public Interest. She also serves on NARUC’s Board of Directors, NARUC’s Broadband Access Task Force, and on the Telecommunications and Supplier and Workforce Diversity Committees.

    Commissioner Coleman is also a member of NARUC and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Natural Gas Infrastructure Modernization Partnership. In addition, Commissioner Coleman is a member of the Critical Consumer Issues Forum Advisory Committee, and the Center for Public Utilities Advisory Council.

    She regularly moderates and speaks at numerous community and energy regulatory events. Commissioner Coleman also facilitated a workshop for the United States Agency for International Development Ethiopia Energy Regulatory Partnership in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and a Peer Review on Emergency Preparedness and Public Consultation in Colombo, Sri Lanka. She is a guest columnist for the St. Louis County Community News.

    Commissioner Coleman has held management level positions at the Missouri Secretary of State and the St. Louis Housing Authority. She is a former member of the Board of Directors of Heat-Up/Cool-Down St. Louis. Prior to her appointment, Commissioner Coleman was Director of the Missouri Office of Community Engagement.

    She previously served as Executive Director of the Missouri Workforce Investment Board at the Department of Economic Development, and in a leadership role at the Missouri Department of Labor.

    Commissioner Coleman graciously took time from her busy schedule recently for an interview with Everything Underground. Her responses are  quotation marks.

    1. What initially got you interested in public service?

    "I’ve always wanted to serve others. It was instilled in me as a child when my mom gave me the responsibility to pick up trash in our neighborhood. A  State Representative convinced me to get involved in local politics. Through political interactions I discovered that the use of common sense was lacking in our elected officials when it came to making laws. That motivated me to run for public office to offer real help to those in need. I wanted someone like me, to represent me."

    2. What do you consider the toughest challenges that you face?

    "The nonchalant attitude that people have toward others. The inability of people to care about, and for, their fellow man. This keeps certain citizens down and creates an attitude of superiority by others."

    3. Did you ever envision yourself in the position that you now hold?

    "I thought I would teach or write books. However, I am thankful for every position I’ve ever held as most every one of them has allowed me to help people. I see service as my calling."

    4. Who were some of the people you consider role models and/or mentors.

    "I have been fortunate to be the descendent of amazing women. Both of my grandmothers, and my mother, were strong role models. My maternal grandmother became a widow at a young age, left to raise four children alone. A great cook with impressive common sense, she parlayed her skills into opening a restaurant to support her children and became a successful businesswoman. From her I gained a sense of independence and strength."

    "My paternal grandmother lived to 103, and was the wise, affectionate mother of nine (9). Always eager to help others, she volunteered often in her church and community. She instilled in me the desire to be there for others."

    "My mother endured much for her eight (8) children. She taught me about commitment and sacrifice."

    5. What do you consider some of your greatest accomplishments?

    "In 2006 Missouri had the third-highest number of heat related deaths in the nation. Only the desert states of Arizona and Nevada had more. These senseless deaths are unacceptable. As State Senator I passed legislation that saves lives - The Hot Weather Rule. This law prevents utility companies from disconnecting residential services during summer weather extremes."

    "I get a deep sense of satisfaction for passing the Returning Heroes’ Education Act. This measure limits the tuition that may be charged by higher education institutions to certain combat veterans. It requires all Missouri higher education institutions that receive state funding to limit the tuition charged to combat veterans to $50 per credit hour. This law ensures that when our veterans return home from war, they have the opportunity to get an education."

    "And, I was twice elected Senate Minority Leader, Missouri’s first woman and African-American to serve in this position."

    6. As you look back over your career, what do you consider some of the most positive changes you've seen in society?

    "Technological advances have been a blessing and a curse to society. Workplace productivity has increased but at what cost? Some employees are never without their work cellphone and they constantly check their emails. While lives have been enhanced, as we now have the world at our fingertips, life is also more stressful."

    7. What are some things that haven't changed enough in your view?

    "Acrimonious behaviors in numerous areas of society to include racial disharmony and ongoing discrimination, a disregard for the needs of the poor, lack of respect and care for the homeless, the destruction of our neighborhoods through gun violence, and the failure to protect and support society’s children."

    8. What advice would you give to aspiring young people regarding careers in public service?

    "Public Service is an honorable profession and in need of honorable people. There is room for those whose mission is to work on behalf of mankind. Determine who you are as a person and the reason you desire to serve. Start by getting involved in your local politics."

    9. What are some of the key issues that you see facing Black communities in the coming years?

    "The continued lack of access to healthcare, jobs and high performing schools."

    10. Do you think moving forward that the Coronvirus/Covid-19 pandemic will fundamentally change things in our society in either a good or bad way?

    "Definitely it will, and I believe in a positive way. While I don’t think things will ever completely go back to being the same, I believe a new normal will be in play that will benefit the entire world. My hope is that people will take what they learned about themselves in solitude and use it to their advantage while finding ways to help others."

    11. Finally, do you consider yourself an optimist or pessimist, and what future final things would you like to accomplish?

    "I am such an optimist! All my life I’ve believed that good overcomes evil, that the “sun will come out, tomorrow”, that everyday will be a beautiful one - no matter the weather, and of course the optimist mantra...the glass is half full (smile). My ultimate goal is to finish one of the books I’m writing. Alas, however; I am a professional procrastinator, it seems, in my personal life."
