The school year just started… and educators are getting bullied by media & capital conglomerates. Yes, I’m trying to not get sued right now!


The academic year just started, with all we’re all going through, with all that we here at EDGE-ucational (Educational )Media Company, LLC have been going through… Educators and community nurturers around the globe are getting bullied by media & capital conglomerates. You guessed it! I’m trying to not get sued right now!

I’m on the verge of being sued for copyright infringement. Using the intellectual property of a photojournalism company. a large one, that has pictures online for the general public to use.

Today is the last day I can edit skoolhaze and myedgemedia’s archives to erase two images of Maya Angelou and Barack Obama… oddly enough. They’re being asked to be removed from my masters portfolio narratives. For those that don’t know I earned a Masters of Science in Education back in 2016. As an ultimate show of my digestion, internalization, and creation of American/Western/Urban teaching practice, I had to create a 70-ish page portfolio of my learnings.

To tie my practice together I used Black imagery. Strong black imagery, everywhere I could.

Now, 5 years later I’m being literally disciplined by Reuters…. I could end up paying a couple thousand dollars if I don’t remove images like this from the site.

Maya’s picture had the quote “History despite its wrenching pain cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.” superimposed on top of it.

Obama’s pictures was him giving the thinking man pose.

I’ve altered the past in both instances. Here are the site links:

Can you imagine creating a rinky-dinky business that get’s threatened by a media conglomerate (compared to us, here.) for using pictures of black icons… in an academic piece almost 10 years ago, and educational website?

That’s not goals. That’s insanity.

The fact that I have to actually be able to maintain a school log in from over 5 years ago… TO NOT GET SUED. Is… not how lawyers are supposed to spend their time. I’m literally typing this while removing… just to complain a bit to readers. I really do hope this helps someone. Your words and knowledge has power. I’m being threatened because the pictures and the words had too much power together.

Disclaimer & Acknowledgements: (all credit attributed to original authors, and educational value asked for sharing in text & modified form.) This is not a sales post. Purely cultural archives meant for educational usage in your areas of highest need. Translation – Please dont sue me to using google image search screenshots (again) pls. Sheesh. Barely holding it together here as it is. ^_^

Productivity: While we feel barely productive now after Covid restructuring MyEdgeMedia responded to the legal teams requesting payment for using public domain for educational purposes images of black public figures. The email and removal of images was complete moments (20mins) before this post went live. Both operations took about 35 minutes each. Separately.

I’ve been gone for a minute but I’m back w the Jump off.

I was gonna type this. But pictures speak louder than words.

These are my workouts during my most recent hospital and behavioral health system stay. (Mental hospital)

You’ll notice I worked out 14 times during my 30+ day stay.

Pushups was heavy!

Followed by high knees, and athletic stationery runs/jump ropes, and suicides.

Core was a distant third focal point.

I’m currently home from an attempt to justifiably remove my own life. It’s a long story. Its meant for MyEdgeMedia!

I’ll keep trying to share more as I process and catalogue my experiences over these past 36 years.

EDGE-ucational Media Company’s Covid-19 REsponse

EDGE-UCATIONAL MEDIA COMPANY’S COVID-19 RESPONSE

EMC Banner header

Well how the fuck are you doing right now!?

Covid-19 aka Coronavirus is currently sending an enormous ripple across the globe. Oddly enough, I happen to be living here in what is now considered the American epicenter of the virus, New York City. Brooklyn to be exact.

I’ve been listening intently to New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo. He has been a steady, transparent, and reassuring figure right now.

Its amazing to know that the last post on this platform, in December 2019, was in a world where I was not sitting here amongst billions of people impacted by the appearance of a new global threat. I could have never imagined there was a “thing” so powerful that is sent shockwaves through the entire planet like this.

I sat and watched, really listened (I have a free subscription to the Washington Post, New York Times, and Wall Street Journal via audible. You should check it out) to the outbreak begin oddly uniquely in China. How back then there were small percentages to the story, usually one sentence or so, to the idea that Corona virus would indeed impact the world. And that American ought to get prepared….

Its amazing to know that in 3 months time or so…. the impact is now being felt more amplified (do we know that? I don’t believe Chinas #’s… just saying) here in the states.

Life has changed. Drastically. The animal piece of me, worked to live in the shock. To realize it. To allow it to stimulate my senses. For the past 2 years or so I’ve been so focused on that for some reason. The ability of my sense’s to pick up messages along different frequencies… My senses told me to feel and receive the different messages sent up into the air. Process them and evaluate what you deem true, what you deem important, what you deem relevant to you in this time of shaking Earth. And now my brain is telling me to reset, to ground, but also be in action of moving my life along and forward in calibration to the shaking ground.

I’ve done a lot of breathing. I’ve fallen victim to a lot of sleeping. To which I lean in to. I’ve been untethered to many avenues in which I received life sustaining funding and income. I’ve been freed.

The response – now – is to germinate the Earth with what it tells me it needs.

I hope you find this message in peace. In a time of protection and personal stability. If not, that is ok too.

Breathe.

Allow your sense’s (sight, smell, taste, feel, hearing, and beyond) to feel the air. Taste it. Take it in. Hear it. Sense it. Feel it above you. As it passes through you and under your feet. And flows past and around your skin. Determine what your body needs. What your human package needs.

Give yourself permission to bring it here. To create it.

Surround yourself with the resources that will make it so.

In response to the Covid-19 interruption of daily living we here at MyEdgeMedia want to encourage you to be safe. Encourage you to stake claim to what you need to thrive. And wish to partner with you in bringing it to fruition!

Stay tuned as we re-calibrate and reconnect a strengthened and more steadfast signal.

We welcome comments and connections below from those interested in bringing their voice back to the Earth.

Powerful communications – 

Reaching out and contributing to my loved ones and hte people I’m connected to in powerful ways. Today was via email, but I’ve been on a journey to make every communication a powerful communication. I mean, its quite simple when you realize everyone and everybody has value in my life. Let’s make this work in the best way possible for the both of us. People… want it, and I want to give that.

Big ass chicken and Big ass drink. Enough said. 

A quick break to just have some fun for a secondfb_img_1478398740482


Content Creation Podcast

This is me creating a podcast to contribute to content for the site. A reservoir of information. A vessel of information in regards of knowledge hacking. developing my skills in the image that I want them to be. Trying to take some time to develop and create a chance for me to push out the skills and work that I say I want to push out. Visualizing and creating learning opportunities for myself.

Contributing works of value. I haven’t published. Its so hard to publish some times. Sometimes its hard to publish. But, I’m pushing myself to share and document as much as possible.

Setting myself up with a powerful 2017.

Trying to put something of value out. Trying to invest. And feeling uneasy about reception. Investing a lot and hoping that what I contribute is useful. Trying to speak to people in need of something a little more. I’m tryna make moves! I’m tryna be engaged. I’m tryna engage my people that I see! When I miss a move, when the energy takes me back to the move I try to engage!

Quick Networking Combo:

Hey whats up!? (Passes out business card, directs to contact info, directs to websites on the back) This is what I think. This is what I do. This is how I feel I can connect with you.

Sharing my info. Making connections
