Understanding the very process associated with the pursuit of any worthwhile goal helps to both shape and define clarity when it comes to developing an idea and achieving the mission. Now that we launched our Black History Month Campaign is“EveryDay” in Honor of STEM Diversity, it has become clear to me that we have a disconnect between what the public understands about all of this “data" that is being made available thanks to technology and the internet. It’s actually a laughable conundrum to me that we started Open Government TV knowing that it was our primary intent to help the public understand the information government was putting out into the public square. Unlike the advocacy organizations who have for years, demanded that we make information “Open” and (transparent). As we present today’s next Black History Month is “EveryDay” Feature story, we choose to use a simplifying and summarizing theme to bring attention to the important matters of America. Especially during a season of high political debate, there are various segments of our population who have their favorite position pre-disposition on matters of importance. But, it would be hard to find many who would deny that information is powerful (I always say) "when you know what to do with it”.
WAKE UP AMERICA: BLACK HISTORY IS "EVERYDAY"
So America, we honor not only the life of a musician whose life’s experiences has helped to further the trials and discovery of spinal disorder, but whose departure from this life helps us to see how important it is to cure diseases that are prevalent in society and specifically a disease like prostate cancer that statistics shows targets African American men. There could be no more important of a time to understand the power of Genomics, Big Data, and Precision Medicine. It may be a Moon Shot, but we at OGTV believe in the collaborative and inclusion process of broadening the understanding and the participation for those under represented and underserved to better understand from complex public policies to what should become basic classroom topics such as Big Data, Precision Medicine, Bio Informatics, Forensic Science, and Computer Science.

WAKE UP “EveryBody” No Time To Sleep
LSAMP is a program for undergraduate science, technology, engineering and mathematics majors. The program
is aimed at increasing the quality and quantity of students successfully completing sciences technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) baccalaureate degree programs, and increasing the number of students interested in, academically qualified for, and matriculating into programs of graduate study. LSAMP supports sustained and comprehensive approaches that facilitate achievement of the long-term goal of increasing the number of students who earn doctorates in STEM fields, particularly those from populations under represented in these fields.
