My beautiful people who follow my “ONLY” – What are you currently working on?

Thank you so much for being a part of something that is great and current. I’m currently working my 1st mix-tape solo after leaving a group of talented individuals.”Population 1″, the meaning comes from living my life and going through things that only one could imagine. Every word is the truth no loser talk about what I don’t have or do as we hear a lot from independent artist on the hip-hop scene. I have all my beats together for my project which consists of “14” songs/tracks. Realizing that all I have is myself, love, loyalty, hard work, dedication and the drive also talking to others on a friendship and business level.

I have been through: Physical abuse, Foster Care/families/group homes. A daughter in Canada, an epileptic Fiance that is my world and another reason why I do this to the point where my eyes and brain is stuffed like a thanksgiving turkey. My heart is totally into my family, music & hard work 100%. I make my own beats, have my own studio, and mix myself and a group called “High 5″ who just recently released their mix-tape “High Rise” available on I’m coming from never seeing the face of my father, I have come this far on my own with some help of those who truly love me who I can’t thank enough.

Sharing this with you is from my heart because you took the time to notice me as a person for what ever reason. I love everyone on the planet, I have compassion, I support whomever reaches out because I know how hard it is to get a name for yourself starting from nothing. Now I have my website, generating hits is the platform I need and been aiming for. To add. My songs are so amazing, after everything is finished and written I plan on locking myself in a very private place and spill my heart and soul into my coming project. I would like to thank Nelson “NdotJay (” for being a lifelong friend in our journey but more so my journey because he has tough me so much and we will be there together in the end at the top. From putting C-D’s on your car in the parking lot, to putting “QR Code” stickers on your shops window, a website, a studio and an image of self. I will make it, with the help of those who feel the way the common person does.

Support is what I want. I deserve it soooo much, because I’m a humble and very positive African American who is in the gray area with the rest who just want more in their lives with no drama/trouble along the way.

If you have anything, I mean anything to further my career or help me with sharing my website/content I will more than likely help you as well, lets become a family and build the Deondrae Porter brand. Lets work together with faith, NO HATE, and build ourselves up as positive people who work together and love one another because LOVE is what it takes to build onto any friendship/relationship, right? Reply, and lets do this, because we can, just dedicated people is all it takes.

“Yaws disease” plagues Congo’s Aka Pugmy

Yaws forms part of a group of chronic bacterial infections caused by treponemes which include endemic syphilis (bejel) and pinta and are commonly known as endemic treponematoses. Yaws is the most common of these infections.

It is also known as framboesia (German or Dutch) and pian (French) and affects the skin, bone and cartilage.

Yaws is caused by T. Pallidum subspecies pertenue. This organism belongs to the same group of bacteria that cause venereal syphilis. It is found primarily in poor communities in warm, humid and tropical forest areas of Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Pacific.

Yaws is transmitted through direct (person-to-person) non-sexual contact with the fluid from the lesion of an infected person. Most lesions occur on the limbs. The initial lesion of yaws is teemed with the bacteria. Contact with this fluid, especially among children who play together and sustain minor injuries, leads to transmission of infection. The incubation period is 9–90 days (average 21 days).

About 75% of people affected are children under 15 years old (peak incidence occurs in children aged 6–10 years). Males and females are equally affected.

Overcrowding and poor personal hygiene facilitate the spread of the yaws. Without treatment, infection can lead to chronic disfigurement and disability.

Until next blog, pray for those inflicted with this disease as well as those who live amongst this.

Top 9 Signs Your Spouse Is Cheating

You have a sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach, something is not right but you can’t quite figure out what that feeling is about. Your spouse has become distant, he/she is working late on a regular basis or, maybe your spouse has moved out of the house with no explanation. You suspect there may be someone else but every time you bring it up with your spouse, he/she denies the possibility. All the signs are there but you don’t have any proof. So, pay attention to the signs and your instinct but, be careful and don’t confuse signs with proof.

1. “I Love You But I’m Not In Love With You.”

If you hear these words, a big warning bell should go off. This is one of the most consistent things a cheating spouse will say. Your spouse may have a deep, loving bond with you but, intense feelings of passion can override the bond with you and cause your spouse to lose sight of his/her true feelings. The cheating spouse will develop what I call hormone – induced amnesia. The surging hormones and passion they feel in their new relationship can cause some very skewed thinking.

2. “We are just friends.”

This is also another very predictable statement that will come from a cheating spouse. If your spouse is spending more and more time with this new “friend”; then there is probably more to it than mere friendship. Your spouse may feel they have a lot in common with this person, that this person understands them and things they are going through. Whatever the reasons for the friendship, it’s a big warning sign and one you should take seriously.

3. A sudden need for privacy.

If things the two of you used to share openly suddenly become private pay attention cause something is probably up. He/she may start password protecting computer activity. Cell phone and credit card bills may be hidden. If you ask why or attempt to find out information that used to be common knowledge between the two of you, you will be accused of snooping or trying to control your spouse. Big warning sign!

4. “I need some space to figure out my feelings.”

Men and women who are involved with someone else will request more space, time alone or away from the family. They may say it is due to confusion over their feelings or stress at work. This can be a sign that there is someone else and the spouse is trying to figure out ways to have more freedom.

5. Regular work habits change.

Working late, going to work at odd hours or, putting in more time than is normal on work related issues can be indications that a spouse is cheating.

6. Spending a large amount of time on the computer.

In today’s world, with modern technology, a person looking for an affair doesn’t even have to leave their home. The ease of internet chat rooms, online dating sites and secret email accounts has caused an alarming increase in emotional affairs.

If your spouse is online more than usual, hanging out in chat rooms and visiting pornographic websites then you have reason to be alarmed.

7. Secretive phone calls and more time spent on the phone.

Emotional affairs occur primarily via the phone, especially cell phones. If you find your spouse hanging up suddenly when you enter the room or erasing the history on the cell phone and becoming defensive when asked about it, then you might want to check your phone records.

8. Behavior that just doesn’t add up.

Not being where he/she was expected to be. Missing time they can’t explain. Money that isn’t accounted for. Receipts for things you don’t have. Missing clothing. Clothing that does not belong to your family. Being caught in little lies about the details of the day.
