Mr. Almas Jamil Sami
SAN ANTONIO, TX (USA) – 29 JUNE 2013 - He is a publisher and founder of Sohaja Publishing and Lecturing Company, LLC (http://sohajapublishing.com); lecturer; author of a captivating children's book which conveys valuable life lessons, “When Trees Could Walk” and “The Unshackled Mind” ™, an Afrocentric self-help book; producer of a myriad of inspirational and instructional CDs which include but are not limited to, “I Would Tell You These Things If I Were Your Father” and “Spirit: The Church Within Us”; Contributing Editor to “In Search Of Fatherhood(R)--Transcending Boundaries” (www.amazon.com); and an essayist whose works have been featured in IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD(R), a quarterly international Fatherhood and Men's Issues Journal which is distributed on a subscriber basis in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, Europe, and Africa. In 2005, as a result of being called upon by Mothers for guidance in helping them resolve their son's academic and behavioral issues and by Fatherhood Practitioners to speak to Mothers or young men, he moved Mothers – particularly Single Mothers who are raising boys into the Fatherhood Equation by developing a concept, “Helping The Hands That Rock The Cradle Of Tomorrow's Fathers” . He is Mr. Almas Jamil Sami'.
In 2013, Mr. Sami' has designed an emotional literacy model for boys for International Men's Day which will be celebrated under the theme, “Keeping Men and Boys Safe” in over 70 nations on Tuesday, 19 November 2013. The emotional literacy model designed by Mr. Sami' will help to resolve the issues of violence, education, mental health, Fatherhood, and positive male role models which have been identified by Global and Regional Coordinators for International Men's Day as critical issues that confront Boys and Men, threaten their safety, and prevent them from living longer, happier, and healthier lives.
“The International Men's Day Global and Regional Coordinators have connected the dots between helping to keep Men and Boys safe and our ability to create a better and safer world for everyone. My work with boys and young adolescent males which spans nearly two decades is in alignment with the mission of the Global and Regional Coordinators for International Men's Day. The emotional literacy model that I have designed provides boys and young male adolescents with the tools they need to resolve self-esteem, anger management, and self-motivation issues,” explained Mr. Sami' when reached for comment.
For further information about Mr. Sami's work and the emotional literacy model he has designed for International Men's Day, contact him at (210) 601-4582 or send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Heralded by many as the “Next Great American City”, the fifth largest metropolitan area in the United States, the City of Philadelphia is on the move. Real estate developers are transforming an area between Market and Chestnut Streets spanning from 11th to 12th Streets once considered the epicenter of Philadelphia into East Market, a towering and expansive structure which will be home to residential units, restaurants, retail outlets, and office space. Looking westward, a cluster of gleaming glass and steel skyscrapers which rise above the end of the Walnut Street Bridge and which appear to obfuscate the line of demarcation between the City of Philadelphia’s downtown business district, University City, and the neighborhoods surrounding Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania come into view .. These developments are helping to create excitement about Philadelphia. Despite the perceived “renewed prosperity” of Philadelphia’s downtown business district an…

On 19 November 2015, a panel discussion was held at the Student Activity Center at The University of the West Indies, in Trinidad and Tobago (in the Caribbean). It was spearheaded by an undergraduate female student, Ms. Michelle Roopnarine, and featured Dr. John Gedeon of the University's Office of Planning and Development; Ramia Coleman, the Chairman of the all-male Hall of Residence on campus; and Jonathan St. Louis-Nahous, the Guild of Students' Representative for Part-time and Evening Students. The panel successfully generated some interest and lively discussion among a cross-section of students on campus and across faculties.
