For The First Time In Its History ‘O, The Oprah Winfrey Magazine’ Won’t Feature Her On The Cover

Oprah Winfrey is a Horatio Alger success story on steroids, born in abject poverty in rural Mississippi she became the richest African American of the 20th century and the first black multi-billionaire.

Her success extended far beyond her incredible financial wealth, she has been one of the most influential women in the world for decades and she’s the greatest black philanthropist in American history.

Oprah has shared her wealth but she has been loath to share the spotlight with anyone, her media empire is a cult of personality dedicated to spreading the splendor of Oprah.

Oprah launched O, The Oprah Winfrey Magazine (Yes, that’s the official title) in 2000, and she has appeared on every damn cover.

In July 2020, Oprah announced that O Magazine will end its regular print publications after the December 2020 issue. On the upcoming September 2020, for the first time the cover won’t feature another photoshopped image of Oprah, instead readers will see a digital artist’s rendering of the Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old African American EMT who was fatally shot in her home by police executing a no-knock search warrant.

Really Oprah? Too little, to damn late. Instead of feeding your ego you could have featured a black victim of police brutality, a black entrepreneur, or a black civil rights leader every month on the cover of your magazine for the last twenty years.

Study: Standing Up Straight Helps Cure Depression

“People with depression could see their condition improve if they adopt an upright posture.

That was the conclusion of a study by researchers at the University of Auckland, due for publication in the March issue of the Journal of Behavior Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry.

While previous studies have found that that sitting or standing up straight improves self-esteem and mood in healthy people, the new study sought to investigate whether people with mild-to-moderate depression would also experience a benefit.

Study co-author Elizabeth Broadent said: Compared to sitting in a slumped position, sitting upright can make you feel more proud after a success, increase your persistence at an unsolvable task, and make you feel more confident in your thoughts.”


You don`t have to be a rocket scientist or a behavioral psychologist to intuitively realize that maintaining an upright posture will brighten your mood and enhance your confidence.

We live in a Darwinian world and if we walk around with shoulders slumped and head hanging down, our colleagues, friends, and strangers will perceive us as losers, and they will treat us accordingly.

Even if life`s trials and tribulations have you down, walk upright as if you have a destination in mind, and people will treat you with respect.

You don`t need to hire a life coach or buy motivational tapes, if your life is on a downwards trajectory simply walk upright as if were walking into your mansion, and things are bound to improve.

I`m not freaking Oprah, Joel Osteen or Dr, Phil, and I ain`t gonna bore you with a tedious motivational speech. Allow me to summarize: Bitch stand up straight, and you won`t be treated like a punk.
