    Jason Wert, newscaster with USA Radio News, provides the latest update on the Paris attacks.


    University of Minnesota rejects 9/11 remembrance because it might incite racism. Ridiculous!


    Hr2  Why can't our President call the Paris attackers what they are Muslim extremists or Islamic terrorists?


    Media personality, Xander Gibb asks, how much more do we have to allow President Obama do before we stop him from further destroying our country by impeaching him?


    University of Missouri student VP says 1st Amendment needs to go because it creates an unsafe & hostile environment. Xander says that 1st Amendment that she's complaining about is what gives her a platform to speak her mind.


    Hr3  What is wrong with the Obama Administration? We still have a US Marine, Amir Mirza Hekmati, imprisoned in Iran for the crime of simply being a US Marine! John Kerry blew it. A hostage release should have been negotiated before the Iran deal. Now what do we have to trade? #FreeAmirNow

    Join us for a conversation with filmmaker Afia Nathaniel, whose feature film, "Dukhtar" was Pakistan’s official submission for Foreign Language Film at the 87th Academy Awards®.


    In a village in Pakistan, a young mother Allah Rakhi (Samiya Mumtaz) kidnaps her ten-year-old daughter Zainab (Saleha Aref) to save her from a child marriage to a tribal leader. Their daring escape triggers a deadly hunt for them. With the pursuers close behind, the mother strikes an unlikely deal with Sohail (Mohib Mirza) a cynical ex-Mujahid truck driver to take them to Lahore. Carefully dodging the far-reaching influence of the tribal leader, the trio embark on an epic journey through the sweeping landscape of Pakistan where the search for freedom and love comes with a price.


    After a rousing reception at Toronto International Film Festival 2014 and in over 20 countries since then, the critically acclaimed "Dukhtar" recently screened in New York and Los Angeles from Pakistan for its one-week theatrical release.


    Team Dukhtar: 


    Producer: Muhammad Khalid Ali
    Co-Producers: Cordelia Stephens, Shrihari Sathe, Thea Kerman, Noman Waheed, Carsten Aanonsen

    BS of the Sun Podcast 10/8/15: Preseason basketball is here

    in Basketball

    Kellan Olson joins me (Jim Coughenour) this time around as we cover all the current Suns news.


    The scrimmage at the Madhouse on McDowell stirred up memories for many older fans in attendance. The actual basketball played was fairly vapid, but I managed to keep busy by scrutinizing the mannerisms and wardrobe of Markieff Morris. There was a large contingent of young fans at the game, too, and the Suns players didn't disappoint by staying well after the game to sign autographs. Should this be an annual ritual?


    Kellan breaks down the Suns first preseason game against the Kings and how Jon Leuer doesn't appear to be conceding the the backup four minutes to Mirza Teletovic.


    Rollin J. Mason's SB Nation Suns Season Preview was such a good read that Kellan and I discussed its finer points. Listen to what we think of the overall roster moves, strengths, weaknesses and team goals.


    The topic of the Brandon Knight/Lakers first round pick trade will surely pop up this season, probably more prominently if the Suns struggle and the pick falls into the mid lottery. Have Suns fans already reconciled this situation, or is there still a chance of buyer's remorse settling in?


    Finally, the last line I read out of Vegas has the Suns over/under at 36.5 wins. Does that sound high, low, or just about right?

During school and after graduating, Tara pounded the NYC pavement and was heavily involved in musical and off-Broadway theater, appearing in various productions.

In fact, she still continues to study and hone her craft. Tara is the long-time girlfriend of rapper, Peter Gunz. They have been together over 13 years and live with their 2 children, Jamison (5) and Kaz (2). Tara is truly the epitome of brains and beauty. Amina was introduced in Season 4 and will return for Season 5.


    Sina Bina is Yung Joc's fourth baby mama - even though she had hoped to become so much more in Joc's life. After being a professional caterer in the entertainment industry for many years, and being Joc's music industry friend for 7 years, Sina became pregnant with Joc's twin daughters who both are now 1 years old. Sina is still in love with Joc and has lingering resentment towards him for cheating on her with both Karlie Redd and Khadiyah. Sina hates Khadiyah "the home wrecker" for stealing Joc from her and will go head to head with KD to get him back - even if she has to catch Joc cheating with her on candid camera! Sina wants her family with Joc back more than anything in the world.

    Capital Raise For The Distressed NPL & RE Investor - Shetty, Tremony Capital

    in Finance

    According to a recent article published by Bloomberg, Oaktree Capital has raised $7 billion for a distressed debt fund as it prepares for the economic recovery to falter.


    For most investors, a capital raise the size of OakTree is simply out of the question.  However, there are still many opportunities in the NPL and distressed real estate space for middle lower market investors especially as FHA, FNMA and Freddie increase their NPL sales creating secondary markets for smaller investors.  Many middle and lower market funds are in active capital raise mode as we head into the 3rd and 4th quarter of the year.
     


    Joining the broadcast to discuss the capital raise process is Bina Shetty, Head of Strategic Advisory at Tremony Capital.


    Bina Shetty joined Tremony Capital, as the Head of Strategic Advisory with a mission to expand Tremony’s third-party strategic advisory capabilities for lower middle market financial institutions and real estate focused businesses. Prior to joining Tremony, Bina was a Managing Director at Milestone Advisors, a boutique investment bank that exclusively focused on middle markets financial services clients across the depository institution, distressed real estate, specialty finance and financial technology sectors.

    BS of the Sun Podcast 7/24/15: Summer League Recap

    in Basketball

    Dave King and Jim Coughenour discuss Phoenix's Summer League performance and where the roster stands. 


    Of course we're going to share our thoughts on T.J. Warren, Devin Booker, Alex Len and Archie Goodwin, but in addition to the recap of what went down in Vegas there are a few other Suns related topics abreast. 


    Is the lack of communication between Markieff Morris a non-issue or the second July Moratorium for the Suns this offseason? Should this be concerning... considering Keef's track record?


    Dave appears to like Mirza Teletovic.


    We also discuss potential strengths... quality at the five, a staunch starting lineup and upside on team defense.


    And possible weaknesses... three point shooting and the unproven track record of the bench.


    Plus, a disagreement on whether rebounding counts as part of offense/defense.


    Enjoy.

    Persecution Of Divine Communities

    in Islam

    We firmly believe that the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace), Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, India was from God as we observe signs of God’s support for him each step of the way as well as fulfilment of Divine promises made to him. We also witness fulfilment of whatever he foretold.  


    When divine communities progress, their detractors try their utmost to stop their progress by means of force or through the help of supporters whom they deem powerful. At times, they also surreptitiously and cunningly try to take those who have weak faith or who lack Tarbiyyat or adolescents away from the truth. This is why each Ahmadi should increase his or her religious knowledge and be aware of what he or she believes in and why he or she believes it so that they can respond to such covert enemies. In addition, and more importantly, we should pray for our belief because without God’s grace nothing can come to pass. For this, God has taught us a prayer: ‘Our Lord, let not our hearts become perverse after Thou hast guided us; and bestow on us mercy from Thyself; surely, Thou alone art the Bestower. (3:9). Thus one’s belief is safeguarded by God’s mercy alone and this is why a humble person is ever in need of His help, indeed, should be in need of His help. Hudhur said at times people write to him asking that if the prophethood aspect of the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) is not mentioned in discussions etc. it lessens the hostility.

    Purpose of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community

    in Islam

    Ahmadiyyat is, what we might call, a messianic sect of Islam. In order to avoid what I might call the "cold bath syndrome" I will make some brief prefatory remarks. Such a preface may avoid the shock and confusion of a plunge into the unfamiliar world of nineteenth century Islam.


     


    I have no idea how many readers may have heard of the Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam. As we shall see a little later, the Movement originated when a devout Muslim, living in the Punjab, declared in 1889 that he was Mahdi and Messiah. This was the point at which experiences of revelation that went back to 1876, when Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was 41 years old, came to a sharp focus. At that dramatic moment, a pious and devout personality reached a plateau of self-realization. From then to the time of his death in 1908, Hazrat Ahmad was the human and prophetic energy that led what his followers felt as the renaissance of Islam.
