Understand RapDeciphering hip hop lyrics can be quite the task for someone who does not follow the genre of music.

Rest assured, Understand Rap is a funny read that breaks down some of the most popular, controversial, and humorous rap lines into digestible language even a parent could understand.

oam logoMay is Older Americans Month. Since 1963, our nation has designated this month as a time to celebrate the many contributions of older Americans and to focus attention on staying healthy and active.

From 1963 until 1973, May was referred to as Senior Citizens Month. In May 1974, President Jimmy Carter changed the name to Older Americans Month. 

Each year, the Administration for Community Living, an organization of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, selects a theme for Older Americans Month. This year’s theme, “Safe Today. Healthy Tomorrow,” focuses on injury prevention.
