The theater was filled with patrons of different ages, genders, and races. Shortly after the movie began, Sacramento Police Officer Tim Martin, entered the theater and began asking only the Black patrons to show their tickets. 12-Year-Old Syiet and 14-Year-Old Katherine were doing nothing to draw attention to themselves, other than being Black in America.
Many businesses that have suffered enormous losses due to mandated Coronavirus closures, have filed claims with their insurance companies. The most common claims are Business Interruption Claims for those who have an All Risk Policy with Civil Authority Coverage. Unfortunately, most Insurance Companies are finding reasons to deny these claims leaving business owners solely responsible for all financial losses. A Coronavirus Insurance Lawyer can help you determine the provisions in your insurance policy and the necessary steps to recover damages from a claim that has been denied.

From ashrams in India to music in the Soviet Union: How my world travels influenced me.
After obtaining a B.A. from the State University of New York at Albany and obtaining a certification from Cornell, I followed the lead of many in my generation by traveling and exploring the world.
My trip took me to the far reaches of the globe. I traveled to India and lived in two different ashrams where I explored meditation, yoga, and Vedanta. I learned about the benefits of self-awareness and harmony between the mind and body. I expanded my understanding of the physical self and the spiritual self. And, I strengthened my appreciation for diverse ideologies and practices throughout the world.
