Professor Muhammad Yunus never wanted to be a banker and he certainly never imagined winning the Nobel Peace Prize. Yet his quest to help the working poor invest in themselves led to both. Known as the father of microcredit, Yunus spent years developing the Grameen Bank in Bangladesh, and in 1983 it became a fully licensed bank with a twist-it was owned by its borrowers-mainly poor women, and its mission was to eradicate poverty, not make a profit. Yunus is famous for saying that in developing Grameen he deliberately did the opposite of what a conventional bank would do. Today, the success of Grameen Bank has changed the lives of 7.5 million Bangladeshi borrowers and their families.
Now brining his bank to America, Grameen America opened for business in a nondescript office building in Jackson Heights, Queens in late 2007.
This is a non-collateral lending bank, and Gayle Ferarro will be in the studio to tell us all about Grameen Bank and how it works. Tune in this Friday, and learn all about Grameen Bank.
In the studio with me will be my Co-Host Sybil Marie Presley, and my radio personalities Sharon Coleman, Larone Woodard, and Rev. Douglas Martin.

Children involved in juvenile court face collateral consequences from their delinquency adjudications which can prevent barriers to their future success and can cause harm to their well-being. Some of these stem from system exposure and others extend beyond the time spent under court supervision but are related to their prior court involvement and adjudication. For example, after successfully completing their dispositions, many youth face significant hardships enrolling back in school, finding employment, or accessing ongoing treatment or health care. This episode of Spotlight on Youth focuses on the intersection of collateral consequences for youth who are court involved. Guests join this episode to discuss what is being done on both policy and practice levels to reduce and eliminate the problem. Guests

On today's show I want to examine some governmental and cultural stories and trends and while not everything falls into the category of unintended consequences that I'll talk about, to be really cryptic, nothing may fall into the realm of unintended consequences. Story wise, I'll have a little bit of an Obamacare update, discrimination by Facebook, as well as your weekly dose of transgender/homosexual adventures. Also if time allows, which it should, an update on the home school family in Arkansas that lost custody of their kids. That's today's show at 4:30 Eastern and archived afterward.
The Bible speaks against these 3 subjects! But do they have the same consequences??? LET'S TALK ABOUT IT!!
Supreme Sense with 1SupremeGoddess = Family & Consequences, Media Correctness & Mistakes ..... Monday, 3/9/2015, at 7:30pm Eastern ....
Does the breakdown of the family matter?
In my less than humble opinion, yes, it matters a LOT, especially in light of kids bullying & being bullied, kids voting to ban American flags, kids running off to join ISIS & kids KILLING each other just because they are angry.

When it comes to Temptation Satan is a great master manipulator always seeking ways to destroy you with all kinds of addictions, habits, and bondage to the point that he wants you to give up and miss out on Gods best in your life. How does he accomplish this? For starters he doesn't want us to think ahead to what the consequences might be if we cave in to temptation. Perhaps its a lustful thought threatning to hijack your mind and emotions. Or its agraphic magazines, someone other than your spouse or just one drink wont hurt. Daily Satan whispers in our ears to indulge in our flesh for just a few minutes of pleasure, that most definitely will turn into pleasures of regret. We must ask ourselves what would happen if I give in to this temptation? What will I stand to lose? What are the consequences? Who will I hurt if I make this decision to feed my fleshly desires? This afterall is the other side of temptation Satan does not want you to see. May God give us wisdom and discernment when temptation comes knocking on our door.???

As we look at the fifth beatitude, mercy is at the heart of forgiveness and salvation. It also has consequences if we don't show mercy to others. I hope that you can also see how this beatitude is vital to any relationship we have whther to God or man. It reminds me ofthe statement 'love God with all yor heart and love your neighbor as yourself.
