What Is The Meaning Of the Declaration Of Independence For New Yorkers

New York ~ The United States of America was named after the birth of the Declaration of Independence to become an independent nation on July 2, 1776.  The significance of the Declaration of Independence for U.S. born citizens was to regain their rights against Great Britain by creating an American "rebellion" so that a "REVOLUTION" was recognized.  Englishmen fought in the war during April 19, 1775, until July 2, 1776, against colonists for this right to be independently free of what was taken by the British during 1763-1775.  No one wanted to pledge Allegiance to the British Crown in the Americas to be controlled by the English and the Scots.  As a result of colonization of the Americas, to end the British Empire in America rivaled by the Spanish American Colonies in military combat to expand the Caribbean economy, South America, most of Central America, and much of North America, the Spanish American wars of Independence ended in the emancipation of most Spanish…

How Did You Get Interviewed?

New York ~ Last year Go Doctorate Go Media opened up a press release Bubble of Health & Wellness stories for the Black Community to understand the positive identities and acknowledgments documented by the signer of this media (after being interviewed by a Retired Judge).    An affirmation was later presented to the Celebrity public under the "ABC" rule....."I swear it was me!"  The truth, the Proof, so help me God!  After an overwhelming response of love acknowledged by the Black Community verified by photos, the reality has now set this platform free to affirm another Fist/Hand into the Holy Book.  I am, or I was Denise Fitzgerald, who told your stories and business models to provide a physical description of my identity ~ (a Black Native American).

Today, after numerous panel discussion, events, and concert appearances to understand the well-spoken words within the Black community, the first TWO MINUTE presentation promised to all of the Judges was used to fi…

How Much Is Your Mouth Worth?

New York ~ Go Doctorate Go Media took a Bubble Journal using Social Investments Stories of the Black Community last yearto understand the various characteristics of dialects.  The African American English (AAE) is still misdiagnosed for having an articulation disorder due to the over-representation of Black Distressed Students now infected by Lead.  Since the earmark of High Profile cases marking Black men in Ferguson, Staten Island, Ohio, and New York, psychologist, psychiatrist, sexologist, and moderators failed to understand the development of phonological explanations to culture and the American Standard English model ~ You or the Use Of Self.  The ability to talk about, reflect upon and manipulate sounds both written and spoken language predicted a literacy to perform accurately using variables of intelligence.  

How does one maintain cultural competence separate from the Foreigner managed under a Foreign Policy to increase their net worth today?  When does Diversity blend in a n…

New York ~ Informing the public using debate is normally an esoteric transformation style of journalism using ethical and supported evidence back by press releases.  To unlock knowledge for people of New York to reflect upon or talk about is what matters today.  So, why post transformational ministry onto a Go Doctorate Go Media Blog?

The answer is the public, the clarity, and the insight into society's biggest problems for researchers like me and academics to provide insight into new and exciting possibilities for others to draw their conversations.  Engaging and learning from an experience or a news story creates an open site for people around the world to reflect sharing their best practices and collaborations for smart, sustainable solutions.  For many it creates the foundation of fact-finding or fact-based forum to discuss change free of commercial or political bias.  Hooray!

So what support can conversations under a Go D…
