100th Anniversary of Titanic – World’s Fastest Talking Female breaks world record and does Memorial Prayer as ordained minister down by wreck site of Titanic.

 

Putnam, New York – With the 100th anniversary of the RMS Titanic approaching on April 14, 2012, Fran Capo the Guinness Book of Worlds Record Fastest talking female talks about her once in a lifetime two and a half mile journey down to the wreck site of the Titanic, a journey only 108 people have made – more people have been to outer space! Capo is a five-time world record holder, motivational speaker, comedienne and avid adventurer who has chronicled her adventures in her book, “Adrenaline Adventures.” To date, Capo has done over 100 high risk adventures which include; eating fire, bungee jumping, diving with sharks, having knives thrown at her, driving race cares, sleeping in an ice hotel, skydiving, being chased in Antarctica by a leopard seal…and the list goes on…but this modern day Nellie Bly says, “Going down to the Titanic is my greatest adventure yet!” So how exactly did a fast talker, talk her way to the bottom of the ocean? Capo had done a book signing at the top of Mount Kilimanjaro.

 

 

That picture circulated around the world and Capo got a call out of the blue from Brian Day O’Connor, the former US Supreme Court Justice’s son. Brian told Fran of the opportunity for this fantastic adventure that was known to few. Capo decided not only to visit the wreck site but make it memorable as well. So with the help of sponsors, this world record adventurer went the following year on July 10, 2005 to not only do a book signing in the Russian Mir submersiblebut become an ordained minister so she could pay homage to the deceased which lie in their watery

grave, 380 miles Southeast of New Foundland. With the guidance of a Navy Chaplain, she said the appropriate non-denominational prayer. A fact which is now chronicled in the “Diving Almanac and Yearbook-2008” and Ripley’s books. Capo says, “The journey was very surreal. I had to keep reminding myself as I stared out that 6 inch pressurized window of the submersible, that this was not the movie, I really was at the bottom of the North Atlantic ocean in complete darkness, staring history in the face. I also had to realize that if God forbid something should happen there was no rescue submersible that could come get us. It was eerie, exciting and humbling all at once and left me, the fast talker, speechless.” Capo also has funny tales to tell of her journey as well, “They told me that I’d be down there for 12 hours, no bathroom. I got worried so I figured I would wear a Depends…but since it’s only 7 feet inside and only accommodates 3 people, I figured if I went, it wouldn’t be hard to know it was me with the stinky diaper.” The complete story is listed on her website, http://www.francapo.com. She also tells the story on stage during her stand up comedy act and motivational speaking gigs.

TRAYVON MARTIN – THE EMMITT TILL OF 2012 By Hermene Hartman

TRAYVON MARTIN  – THE EMMITT TILL OF 2012 By Hermene Hartman, Today’s Transmedia Woman

The murder of Trayvon Martin who was fatally shot in Sanford Florida by a
keystone cop type is the Emmett Till case of 2012.  A teen Black male is in
danger on American streets, in his neighborhood, in the suburbs and on urban
streets.   A young Black Male Walking   (BMW) should be very careful.    His
mere walking is a danger sign. Walking in jeans and sweats and a hoodie
could   be a death sentence.  The reason –  because you are Black and only
because you are Black.

America has a problem –  the perception of the Black Male.  Even with a
Black male occupying The White House, the fear factor and the disrespect
looms.   The President of the Untied States said, if I had a son, he might
look like Trayvon Martin.  The resemblance is clearly there  –   clean cut,
bright shinning face.   He could have also said, maybe if I weren¹t in the
White House, I too would be under the same threat, minus secret service.  Or
he could have also said, when I was his age, it could have been me.

A Washington Post reporter said we are living in a post racial society. The
comment was stimulated, I am sure, because President Barrack Obama is in
office and some might think  race issues have vanished.    Wrong and we knew
it was wrong when she said it.  Try walking the streets as a young black man
and you find out quickly the state of American racism.  The police are
afraid of the children. The children are afraid of the police. Both are
quick on the draw.

Trayvon was walking in his housing complex in Florida. He was walking in a
gated  guarded community.  He went to the store.  He had candy in one hand
and tea in the other.  He was talking on his cell phone.  He had on  the
clothes of youth, a hoodie that is a sweatshirt with a hood.  Did it cost
him his life?    Front-page story in the Chicago Tribune is  ³What black
parents are telling their sons² as they navigate from teenage to adult hood
as they travel the streets in normal life.    This is a Black problem, it is
not a class problem or an education problem,  it is a defined race problem.
It is a problem that whites may not understand, however, it is real.    It
is not new that  Black parents  provide their sons social instructions on a
special code of conduct for Black men.  The Black men of the south,
yesteryear  were told to get off the sidewalk if approaching a white male.
They were also told never to look a white man in the eye and to drop their
heads while talking.

Today, parents tell their children to walk in twos or threes.  They
prepare them for the police stop.  Instructions are stay  in the car, keep
your hands on the wheel. Do not argue.  Get out of the car with your hands
up and  in front of you.  For no reason at all put your hands in your
pocket, it does not matter  that you don¹t have anything  in your pocket, it
matters only what the police officer thinks.  He thinks you have a weapon.

Black Male Tales that are True
I know a Black male who was the top officer of his company working in a
major downtown establishment.  He forget his brief case, filled with work
for the weekend.  He did not go back in the building after hours, because
the guards did not know he was coming. He is never without suit, shirt and
tie, always looking like a fashion plate.    He did not go back in the
building because he is a Black male, and he didn¹t want the guard, the white
guard, to get confused and mistakenly consider him a burglar and shoot him
accidentally in the dark.    He left his briefcase and drove back into the
city the next day and went to his office.

I know another Black man, whose teen child wanted to visit the mall with his
buddies for his birthday, without parents. They wanted to just hang by
themselves.  His father gave him and his buddies instructions.  He drove
them to the mall and they agreed where they would be picked up with specific
time.  He made sure they were nicely dressed. He told them to be polite and
for no reason loud.  He told them to go into the stores only where they
wanted to purchase an item and to make it clear that they were there to buy.
He told them not to laugh too loud.  This was their first venture without
parents.  He was scared to death, explaining to me, you have no idea what
could happen over  absolutely nothing.  He was on pins and needles often
with phone calls to his sons  cell to check on their safety and whereabouts.

I know another Black male who for no reason will not  wear a jockeying suit
or jeans and t-shirt.  He is suited at all times.  His complexion is dark.
He is a successful business owner and works odd hours and is always low key
and polite, no matter what.  He says a screaming black man, a black man with
the wrong hat, the wrong suit of clothing, can cause upset and death.

I have a white neighbor, who was alarmed when she saw  a Black male in the
hallway.   She went and told another white neighbor that a Black man was in
the building.    She was correct.  He was a United States Congressman.  I
had to tell her she would probably see other Black men in my home and that
she could not call the police as though she was in danger when  she saw
someone  walking through the halls.

The young black male in American society is threatened and is a threat all
in one package.    It is ridiculous, yet Black people understand it and live
it.   Women understand it and men understand it most of all and adjust their
style to accommodate.

A maniac, George Zimmerman,  killed Trayvon for no reason other than his own
prejudices.  He has yet to be arrested. This is the tragedy of the tragedy.
America at large is up in arms for the murder and  rightfully are filling
the  streets in protest.  Trayvon could have been anybody¹s child and any
black boy in America.
