I was born and raised in the Lee/Harvard area. Ive had a plan for my life since I was about 15yrs old, when my dad told me to learn how to work smarter and not harder and you can achieve great things in life. Outside of CWRU, I also own Minor Creations Creative Learning Center and Before &amp; After Center in Maple Heights.Describe your typical work day? No two days are the same for me. Thats why I enjoy what I do. One day, I am creating virtual servers for the CWRU departments. The next day, meeting with my accountant and inter-viewing people for Minor Creations. Never a dull moment.Why is your job important? At CWRU, my team and I maintain the systems and services that make the campus daily activities function from day to day. These services include being able to get on the internet, class registration, payroll and virtual seminars just to name a few. What advice do you have for people seeking a similar career path? Dont be afraid to ask for more work or responsibilty. Too many people today are lazy and wonder why they dont get that raise or promo-tion or get very far in life in general. What is the salary range for your position? $42,000 to $62,000 per year.Whats your favorite quote? A dream written down with a specifc date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action, makes your dream come true.

His frst project entitled, The Res-taurant which was presented by famed Cleveland Disc Jockey Mick Boogie has been receiving rave reviews for its soul-ful sounds and originality.

African American women are more likely than all oth-er women to die from breast cancer. Tu-mors are found at a later, more advanced, stage so there are fewer treatment op-tions. Some reasons for this include not following-up after getting abnormal test results, the belief that mammograms are not needed, or not having insurance.Breast cancer cant be prevented. But there are things you can do to reduce your risk, such as keeping a healthy weight and limiting how much alcohol you drink.There are things you can do to fnd breast cancer early. Breast cancer screen-ing looks for signs of cancer before a woman has symptoms. Screening can help fnd breast cancer early when its most treatable. Two tests are commonly used to screen for breast cancer:Mammogram. A safe, low-dose x-ray exam of the breasts to look for changes that arent normal. Starting at age 40, women should have screening mammo-grams every 1-2 years. Depending on fac-tors such as family history and your gen-eral health, your doctor may recommend a mammogram before age 40.Clinical breast exam (CBE). The doctor looks at and feels the breasts and under the arms for lumps or anything else that seems unusual.Regular screening is the best way to fnd breast cancer early in most women. If you are at higher risk you may need mammo-grams at an earlier age or more often. Or, your doctor might want to use other tests too.For more information: Cancer Answer Line 866.223.8100 written by Angela BaileyPowered by15 16 CANVAS FEBRUARY 10Josh Cribbs of the Cleveland Browns and his wife Maria talk about what it takes to make marriage work even with the distractions of professional football right over their shoulder.written by Andre Cisco IILOVE + MARRIAGEx FOOTBALL17 he 30-day Hollywood marriages, reality television shows and high divorce rates that fll depictions of relationships today often cause us to lose track of the true defnition of courtship and unconditional love that should defne our intimate interactions. Our soul mates dont come with instruction manuals that teach us how to fnd immedi-ate perfection, which means that we must fnd that perfection within our signifcant other through trial, error and compromise.We recently sat down with Josh Cribbs of the Cleveland Brown and his wife Maria to discuss the ends and outs of relationships and marriage.How did you guys meet? Josh: I frst met Maria when she won the best-dressed contest at Kent States annual Renaissance Ball. When I frst saw her I was with some members of my team and I asked them did they know of her and they said, Man, you dont want her, shes wifey material, which basically meant that she was hard to get and that she wasnt easy. I knew I wanted her and she would say that I stalked her because she says that I was in the background of all of her pictures from that night. After that night I found out that we had a mutual friend, who happened to be my resident advisor in my dorm, and we ended up meeting and exchanging numbers through her.What initially attracted you to one another? Maria: When I used to work at the Kent State recreation center, I would see all the guys being loud and obnoxious. Josh was kind of quiet and really patient with the mannerisms of an older more mature guy. Thats what I liked!Josh: It was her smile. It was her presence. Its like just being around her felt like she was the life of the party. When I frst met her, every one focked around her, she was the Tcenter of attention, and a good conversa-tionalist that always talked about things that were interesting. Last, I would say her eyes because when I looked in her eyes I kind of got lost and from that moment I knewWhere did you go on your frst date? Maria: Where did we go on our frst date?Josh: See, you dont even remember but I do! Our frst date was the worst ever for me. We were at this eating/karaoke club at Kent State where a lot of students go to hang out and relax. It was karaoke night and I felt like I could win her over if I sang a little bit, so I requested to sing, Ill Make Love to You by Boys 2 Men. When I got up there I made the mistake of reading from the teleprompter even though I knew the words to the song. The teleprompter only confused me and I ended up replacing the part that says, I will do anything with I will do any girl and my heart just dropped because I was so embarrassed. After that I tried to redeem myself by taking her in the hallway and sing-ing for her in private. That worked out bet-ter for me and I knew I had her after that.How did you know he/she was the one? Maria: I knew right then and there. After we met we would spend everyday to-gether. Either I would be at his dorm or he would be at mine. We did not want to leave each others site and normally I get sick of people but with him it was always something interesting, something new or we had some-thing good to talk about. Thats how I knew and I think it was pretty instant.Josh...</p>
