"uncf was really really pivotal in providing mentors.. providing access i needed.. once my phd was completed, they made sure i had access to conferences.. access to tools i need to complete my research as we." in its 75 years, uncf has had high profile support ... from presidents and other leaders. and high profile black college graduates ... a rights, a justice .. a california well as leaders in the arts. and scholarship money is key ..
9:38 am
and it doesn't only support black students at black schools.. " uncf scholarship made it so i didnt have to pay anything this year for school which is amazing"janae tate, also an oakland native, and the first of 8 in her family to go to college... is in her first year at u-c -berkeley majoring in bio-science ... and a uncf scholarship helped her be here.. " i'm coming from a humble background. but i can still do this.. just because i havent had same opportunity as some of the other people who are coming to berkeley, i can still do this and i can still be amazing at it."getting kids into college and keeping them there is expensive and challenging ... "overall african enrollment has increased in colleges and universities across the board. the issue is around retention and graduation.. ""uncf gives our students an opportunity to realize not only their academic but their lifelong potential..." that's why the uncf motto has expanded.. "a mind is a terrible thing to waste.. but a wonderful thing to invest in".. that's what betty and janae represent..

there are moments in life that leave a lasting impression. like the feeling of movement as a new journey begins, or the sight of soft fur, warmed by the morning sun. you might remember new flavours, the sound of an old friend's laugh, or a view that defies all expectations. these are the memories that stay with you, long after the moments have passed. it's day two of the

catholic church sex abuse summit at the vatican. and pope francis says he expects more than just talk about the clergy sex abuse crisis. he says he wants "concrete and effective" results. he has floated a 21-point guidline with proposals to deal with the crisis, like creating a handbook for church leaders to use when abuse accusations are made. the pope also said they should not publish lists of clergy accused of abuse before a preliminary investigation and "definitive" condemnation has occurred. but survivors of abuse say the public deserves to know when accusations are made.

zion, honestly.">( darya ) i love the media asking paul george about the nike pg2 that ripped open on zion.. as if pg personally stiches them.. like what do you want him to do? he's a basketball player not a cobbler! doctor mccoy.. startrek, look it up kids. now zion needs a real doctor and everybody wants a real answer about what happened. this is the biggest wardrobe malfunction since janet jackson lost her top on stage at the superbowl. probably because there's never been a shoe fail on this big a stage.. the duke-unc game.. the number one prospect in the
9:50 am
sport.. goes down when his foot comes down on his first possession.. nike's stock fell and even if zion's position in the draft hasn't fallen.. now he's out with a sprained knee. and the big question is.. should zion just stop playing and be in bubble wrap til the nba draft? warriors star demarcus cousins says bleep, yeah.
9:51 am
protecting the kids.. it's hurting them, cuz they're not getting anything out of college, they're not getting paid and they're risking getting injured. in the dog eat dog world of the nba it was a close one for the warriors last night. they beat the kings but it was close.. by just two points.. this was "not" the dunk that did it.. but it's my highlight cuz watch steph's face after he hangs on the rim and runs away.. he does the home-alone "what??!!" curry is shocked he can dunk.. but it doesn't phase him when he hits 10 threes on his way to the game high 36 points. warriors win 125 to 123 steph makes everything look so easy.. maybe you didn't even realize that he was working in weird phrases during his all star weekend interviews. turns out it was part of a challenge from jimmy fallon.
