You could argue that the woman on the recording didn't really set up the man on the recording; instead, she let events play out in a way that seemed quite characteristic for the Clippers owner.
A poor credit score can hurt your chances of success, whether you're looking for private student loans or shopping for your next set of wheels. But if your credit score is already in the 600's or below, there's good news: you can fix bad credit.
Let's be honest, America is having a credit card debt crisis. We, as a nation, are $11.4 trillion in debt to credit card companies. Luckily, there is a very easy solution to stop paying all of that interest to the credit card companies, and it comes from the most unlikely source ... the credit card companies.
We have all bought into a social construct that permits us to feel good about perpetrating a fraud. Corporations, universities, government agencies, minorities and "good white folks" alike -- we are all complicit in pimping diversity.
I needed, not wanted clothes because having lost 220 pounds since 10/2011 and 150 pounds since 8/2012, not even a belt would cinch up my pants and my underwear was too big. So I started shopping for myself.

It is time we work together to solve this pervasive national problem, and develop ways every city in our country can effectively combat gun violence.
The sheer number of retirement accounts can make anyone's head spin. Once you've opened a specific type of account -- for instance a traditional 401(k) -- it's tempting to just figure you're set. But with more and more employers now offering a Roth 401(k) as well, it's smart to take a step back and consider the potential benefits of each.

This month marks the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The law is often recognized as a repudiation of racial segregation in the southern states.

I try to be a gracious, well-mannered dinner guest, and a good listener; or so I'm told. It's what I reflect about over the dinner that may give people indigestion and pause. As acquaintances and friends sometimes ask me: "Eric, why do you often steer dinner discussions toward issues of racism?"
With the President making historic strides in launching My Brother's Keeper and, together with Congress, passing the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act there is no better time than now to make a focus on jobs real throughout the country.

Boris Kodjoe has been cast in the ABC pilot 'Georgetown,' an ensemble drama about young staffers on Capitol Hill.
The hour-long project, written by Will Fetters, is described as a sexy soap centered around the young people behind the power brokers of Washington, D.C. It centers on Andrew Pierce (played by Jimmy Wolk), an effortlessly charming and brilliant Yale graduate and the youngest presidential speech writer on record who was once idealistic but is now cynical as he sees how compromise has eroded the administration's promise.
Kodjoe will play the Democratic president's fiercely intelligent senior adviser, stated Deadline.com.
Kodjoe's last TV series, the J.J Abrams' NBC spy drama 'Undercovers,' which paired him with Gugu Mbatha-Raw, was canceled in 2010 after low ratings. Only 11 of 13 episodes aired.
Also cast in 'Georgetown' are Katie Cassidy, who will play Nikki, a smart and quick-witted junior staffer in the White House Communications Office with connections to the first lady; and Daisy Betts, who will play Samantha, an idealistic young staffer with the Democratic president, and daughter of a political dynasty who shares a romantic history with Andrew. Joe Mazzello, who was recently featured in 'The Social Network,' plays Peter, another junior White House staffer who lives with his best friends, Andrew, Nikki and Sam, while Condola Rashad, daughter of Phylicia Rashad and Ahmad Rashad, is an ambitious lesbian journalist reluctantly working the style segment of Website politicalcapitol.com when she'd rather be covering harder news. Kevin Zegers will play Monty, an incredibly wealthy stockbroker from a well-connected family and an old rival of Andrew's, who has just proposed to an ex girlfriend of Andrew's. Wendy Crewson is Senator Caroline Wallace, the GOP minority leader.
This is the third TV series Kodjoe will be in. For five seasons (2000-2004), the Austrian native and former fashion model played courier-turned-sports agent Damon Carter on the Showtime television drama series 'Soul Food,' opposite his wife, Nicole Ari Parker.
Parker will also be returning to television in the A&E hour-long pilot 'Big Mike,' which stars Greg Grunberg as a plus-size detective with the San Diego Police Department. Parker will play lieutenant Grace Peterson, Mike's boss.
