Wiz Khalifa Brushed Off SpaceGhostPurrp Beef For 'T.A.P.' Collaboration
Mtv News- RAP FIX - almost 6 years
By Rob Markman The beat on "T.A.P.,"  from Wiz Khalifa's Taylor Allderdice mixtape was courtesy of A$AP Rocky producer SpaceGhostPurrp, but fans may not know that Purrp was once a Taylor Gang detractor. Luckily, the two artists were able to sidestep any issues to collaborate on a great track. For those unfamiliar with Purrp's catalog, in 2011 he released a song called"F--- Taylor Gang," on which he rapped, "This ain't no Wiz, so f--- a Khalifa." The song didn't hit Wiz's radar at first, but the Purrp-produced A$AP Rocky track "Pretty Flacko" did. "I love that beat. I'm like, 'Man, that beat is hard as hell,' " Wiz said when he appeared on last week's "RapFix Live." After hearing "Pretty Flacko," which dropped on New Year's Day, the Taylor Gang captain immediately took to Twitter to express his appreciation for SpaceGhost's work. Shortly after, the emerging producer hit Wiz back suggesting that they record a song together, and of course Khalifa agreed. "Then somebody was like, ...

Mama Drama: Attention Anxiety – Is it ADHD?
Denver Post - almost 6 years
Dear Mama Drama: (photo credit) My seven-year-old daughter is struggling in school. Her teachers say she daydreams and is off in her own world so she doesn’t get her work done. At home she also needs lots of reminders and support to get things done. Someone suggested that she may have attention deficit disorder, but I’m not sure what that means. I’ve seen kids who are very hyper and have trouble sitting still, but this doesn’t fit my daughter. While she needs help getting ready for school and keeping track of her things, she can also sit and draw or read for hours. Other people have suggested she might need medication, which seems really scary to me. Can you give me some insight and ideas for how to support her? ~Anxious Mama Dear Anxious: Attention concerns can be related to a variety of different issues, such as health problems, development, sensory processing needs, or neurological needs related to brain function. In order to help your daughter be successful in school...
