Man, it has been 25 years since the release of the Spike Lee Joint, "Do The Right Thing." This documentary captures just how you are feeling right now (esp. if you remember it hitting theaters back in the day) and impressions from actual Bed Stuy residents that live there and so much more!
You might shed a tear as we walk the real block with Spike (Mookie), Danny Aiello (Sal) and the production designer (Wynn Thomas) who created the hot block where it all went down oh so many years ago. You WILL raise a power fist by the time the Anniversary Block Party jumps off (with ... you already know ... PUBLIC ENEMY doing "Fight The Power")... along with an array of very spec ...READ MORE

There is power in a smile. It is a simple, easy step you can take that will exert a positive, powerful influence in a variety of situations. It is one simple act that comes from the heart, a genuine smile.
When you smile, and not only does it improve your appearance, it improves all of you. Smile, and you cannot avoid being more positive toward life.
When you smile as you speak, your voice will be more confident, enthusiastic and convincing. The next time when you're talking over the phone and the person at the other end can't see you, smile and watch how much noticeable value will be added to the conversation.
If you strive to give a smile to others, you instantly improve the quality of each encounter. Smile to yourself, and watch the new positive possibilities come clearly into view.
There is power in a smile. A smile costs you nothing, and yet it can bring so much. Take a look around, and you'll see that the most fulfilled people are those who smile the most.

It is often said that desperate times call for desperate measures. But when you're desperate to do something, I think the best thing to do is to wait. Wait until you can transform the desperation into a more positive force.
When you make decisions out of desperation, they are often weak and ill advised. Acting out of desperation will very likely magnify and extend your desperate circumstances.
Take the time to step back from the situation and refocus. Take the time and care to change the negative energy of desperation into a compelling, positive sense of determination.
Strive to not focus on running away from the way things are, instead, put your attention and energy into creating the life you want to live.
Remember that whatever you most intensely and consistently hold in your mind, you will manifest in your life. So refuse to dwell on negative thoughts and desperate feelings, instead strive to keep your mind filled with positive, meaningful visions.
