So, the entertainment industry and science fiction fans are all abuzz with a black man playing the character,  Johnny Storm. It should be known that Johnny Storm aka the Human Torch aka Jim Hammond was an android that surrounds himself with fire and controls flames. The Human Torch was created by Phineas Horton, also a character first introduced in the Timely Comics, October 1939, by writer Carl Burgos. The fictional character Phineas created The Human Torch in his lab. When Marvel Comics took over Timely Comics, they kept the name the Human Torch and created another character called Johnny Storm the Human Torch which debuted November 1961 as a member of the Fantastic Four.
Storm was created from a cosmic occurrence on a spacecraft.                             Michael B. Jordan

What’s interesting is the original Human Torch dealt with ridicule because he was different from others. He eventually won over the people and became a hero. So, it looks like life may be imitating art. What difference does it make if a black man plays an android, its fantasy. The beauty of fantasy is imagination, change and acceptance. Do we need a Professor Phineas to give the final okay to cast a black man named Michael B. Jordan as The Human Torch, Johnny Storm and remind everyone Michael is a good actor and color does not matter?  Michael B. Jordan has 27 movies under his name and counting.

University of California offers Med Students Free Tuition

On January 27, 2014 the Aljazeera American news program reported that due to the increasing shortage of primary care physicians in the United States the University of California Riverside is offering a sweet deal to medical students.  The college is offering any interested medical student that will practice medicine in the local community free tuition.

The is great news because becoming a doctor can put students into debt well above 100,000 by the time the students complete schooling.  The American Medical Association reported for the 2012-2013 year the average public medical institution tuition ranged from $28719 for residents of the state to $49,000 for non-residents.  Private medical school students can tack a bit more to the tune of $47,673.  So, to know about a school that is willing to educate and train medical student into doctors is a great idea that student welcome since 86% leave school owing an average of $160,000.00 and still need to land a job that pays enough to payback all those loans.

The baby boomers are getting older and so is everyone else in America.  Since 1909 the rate of babies born went from 127 to 63 in 2012.  This number may be skewed due to the astronomical number of abortions done yearly. What am I saying, baby shortage those available to fill professional roles widens.  Properly trained doctors are very much needed in the United States due to the aging population and health preventive services for those under 65.  Regular checkups can prevent many serious illnesses.  But there are not enough doctors to perform primary preventive checks then the wait to see a doctor can be weeks or months.  Often, the doctors schedules are just too full.  So, if you know of some young person on their way to college and wants to be a doctor but can not afford to pay for school, share this article with them.

The world plus you volunteer

Volunteering is a way to give back to others that want or need inspiring or help in one area or another.  It is an opportunity to put aside the “me, me, me” playback and give to others.  Did you know that volunteering is the key component of the success of the ministry of Jesus.  Now, of course I am talking about before Jesus surrendered to the purpose for which he was born and called.  All 13 disciples volunteered and Jesus provided for all their needs and wants as they remained faithful.

So, you are wondering what does Jesus have to do with you.  Volunteering is a humbling experience that everyone should experience.  You do not need to go across the world to be an impact.

You can volunteer in your own communities whether you live in the United States, Haiti, Rwanda, Australia, China, Philippians or the United Kingdom.  There are many places to volunteer like the Oklahoma Juvenile Center, the Lighthouse for the blind, your local schools, community youth programs.  You can also find opportunities via the United Way website, City government website, etc.
