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.

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.

Check these readings out. I ordered these books back in 2015. December 31, to be exact. They are giving me ‘color’ on how to understand my dilemma with being treated as a decent citizen, worth acknowledging and treating with kindness and humanity.

Treatment we all deserve.

These are controversial and will JAR you. That is ok. Just read the ideas, and perhaps order the books for your personal library.

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.

BEDA Day 27 of 31

=============

Its my birthday family! Today I am 31! And since it is, I’m gifting you a sneak peak of my new website soon to launch.

www.PaladinJordan.com

My gift from me to you.

I used http://www.squarespace.com to create my platform. Completely from scratch using my pictures and my text. It took me about a week maybe a bit more to draft and play around with picture placement.


If you’re thinking about creating your own website some places I would recommend are:

www.squarespace.com

www.wordpress.ORG

www.wix.com

I’m only on day 3 of my 4 day personal development training. today is supposed to be the most exhilarating day of my life……………YIKES right, LoL. I’ll check in with you guys in more detail next week.

Until then be good to yourself and enjoy your weekend
