    Preventing and Detecting Hidden Corrosion

    in Business

    AIR DATE August 2, 2011
    Our Surveyors Roundtable members talk with Darel McCormick (NOAA Small Boat Program) about hidden corrosion.
    Based in Seattle, Darel is responsible for coordinating and scheduling boat inspections, as well as identifying applicable regulations, and marine surveying.
    In his time at NOAA, he's encountered many metal vessels with inaccessible structural areas. "Corrosion can take place in them unobserved," says Darel, "and this causes the hull to lose integrity."
    The ProBoat Radio surveyors have their own observations to share, so join us for some clues about what you can do to determine just what is going on in the areas you can't see.

    Sarge Says: Officer Darren Wilson Was Justified In His Shooting Of Mike Brown!

    in Current Events

    Love him or hate him, Sarge is a man who fully commits to whatever he believes in yet respects your right to disagree.

    Even if you are rubbed the wrong way by his logic, he is still the man that you want by your side if you're fighting a common enemy.

    That being said, the conversation that I had with him on this pleasant winter night was no less an intense affair, as a matter of fact, if there was any snowfall within the sound of his voice, surely it would have melted from the intensity of his words.

    Tonight ol' Sarge meant business and he wasn't about to let the masses sway him from what he felt was the undisputed TRUTH!

    While we started speaking on the corrosion of the family unit in the Black community and touched on the sanctity and benefits of marriage, it wasn't too long before Sarge kicked into full gear after I asked him about his feelings on the Ferguson Missouri situation with Officer Darren Wilson and Mike Brown.

    What transpired in his reaction was nothing short of a force of nature as he aggressively explained why Officer Darren Wilson was 100% correct in his shooting and killing Mike Brown the way that he did.

    Sarge also challenged anyone who feels any different to indulge him with the facts and not emotion as he welcomes a thorough debate with anyone who is willing to sit down with him to convince him otherwise.

    Of course at this point I felt like Don King promoting a potential mega million dollar boxing match, but since the debate is not about money, it would be a spectacle to see Sarge in the heat of a verbal battle nonetheless!

    The Poor are Shunned

    in Religion

    James 5:1-5  1 Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you. 2 Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. 3 Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. 4 Look! The wages you failed to pay the workers who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. 5 You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter.
    I hear many conservative Christian leaders speak against the gays and the abortionist and the liberals but never against greed.   Throughout the Bible, God calls us to fight against corruption, and to stand with the poor.  The fight during this shutdown  is such a fight and I look to  scripture to make my choice.  Many elected republicans used the Christian Evangelical vote to gain there seat and I think it is time they started earning that vote.  If we believe ourselves to be Christian then we can't turn our back on scripture that is too difficult to put into practice.  The people are crying out and they are being ignored by the very people who claim to love God.  However, they don't love God or His people but they do love money.
    Deut.24:14 Do not take advantage of a hired worker who is poor and needy, whether that worker is a fellow Israelite or a foreigner residing in one of your towns. 15 Pay them their wages each day before sunset, because they are poor and are counting on it. Otherwise they may cry to the LORD against you, and you will be guilty of sin. Prov. 14:20 The poor are shunned even by their neighbors, but the rich have many friends. Prov. 21:13 Whoever shuts their ears to the cry of the poor will also cry out and not be answered.

    in Religion

    Brother Eric Green:   What greater Love than a man lay down his life , for a friend? In conclusion , Am I my brothers keeper , is all about laying down our lives so that someone else has the chance to live. We live in a time where , everybody seem to be looking out for their own best interest ; so much , that it's causing corrosion of relationships and ultimately a disconnect from God. In the last days we have to love, love covers a multitude of sin. Let's stay together.   Brother Jeff Pitts: Soul Ties - Old Ties
