    Recognizing the Source of Your Inspiration

    in Spirituality

    Many people in doing personal growth have considerable talents and attractive qualities. In an effort to ‘give back’ to their communities, their command of the spotlight accomplishes more than most. But, how do you bring your gifts to the public and not get lost in the ego of it all. Tune in this week as Lisa Jones and I discuss how we can only be as successful as our opportunities allow. We are not islands onto ourselves. Any brilliance we achieve is closely linked to the people with whom we relate. Recognizing the source of your inspiration and energy is part of a conscious effort to keep these universal forces in balance. Tonight’s show is about how to be very "aware" of the world beyond the self. Who is giving you the chance to shine? Where is the source of your energy coming from? Acknowledge these helpful phenomena. Take time to understand and realize the universal integration of things and it will contribute immensely to your own evolution. This discussion offers the perspective of ‘appreciation’ regarding your life and circumstances.

    Israel Fast of Shiva and Tammuz

    in Visual Arts

    14 Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord's house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.


    Fast of Shiva Asar B'Tammuz in Israel


    The Fast of Shiva Asar B'Tammuz is held on the 17th day of Tammuz, which is the fourth month of the Hebrew calendar. It observes five calamities that affected the Jewish people. These are: (1) Moses broke the tablets of stone and (2) an idol known as “the Golden Calf” was erected in 1313 BCE; (3) the daily sacrificial offerings were discontinued in 423 BCE; (4) Jerusalem’s walls were breached in 69 BCE; and (5) the Roman military leader Apostomus burned a Torah scroll possibly around 50 CE just before the Bar Kokhba revolt.

    What do people do?


    Many Jewish people fast from dawn until nightfall by abstaining from food and drinks. However, people who are ill or weak, children and pregnant or nursing mothers may not fast completely but only eat simple food. In addition, special prayers are recited and sections of the Torah and Haftarah (Haftorah, Haptara) are read during the morning and evening services. In contrast to some fast days, Jewish people may be permitted to wear leather and wash themselves on the 17th of Tammuz.


    Public life


    The Fast of Shiva Asar B'Tammuz, also known as the 17th (or Seventeenth) of Tammuz, is not a public holiday in Israel.


    Background


    The 17th day of Tammuz is a day of mourning for Jewish people. It marks the anniversary of five calamities. On this day in the year 1313 BCE, Moses broke the tablets of stone that were inscribed with the Ten Commandments and the idol of “the Golden Calf” was erected.

    Christina Fast -A STERILE Approach to Health Care in West Africa

    in Culture

    Please join host Frankie Picasso this Thursday, August 13th at 1:00 pm EDT on The Good Radio Network when she is joined by her guest, Christina Fast,  an incredible young Canadian woman who founded SPECTrust, ‘Sterile Processing Education Charitable Trust’). The trust  which that was established to support education related to effective sterile processing and infection control practices in hospitals and clinics in developing countries such as Guinea, Sierra Leone, Congo and Madagascar.


    Christina first went to West Africa in 2011 when she volunteered to be an OR Sterilizer for Mercy Ships Canada. While on board, she was able to teach to some crew as a well as local staff  the International course on Sterilization that she was currently delivering in Calgary.


    Curious about the local hospital, Christina asked these nurses if they would take her to visit the local hospital to view their sterilization setup. She almost wished she hadn’t. ‘


    Not only were their sterilization techniques unsanitary, “They had a few drum sterilizers that had been broken for an unknown length of time.” says Christina, but the infection rates post surgery were like 90% compared to the hospital where Christina worked was 0.03% surgically related infection rate.


    Touring that hospital, Christina realized at that moment that she hadn't been called to Africa to serve onboard, but to be a voice for this unseen and so crucially important area of the hospitals.”


    Since that visit, Christina has developed more training, and continues to volunteer sterilization techniques in collaboration with the African Mercy.


    Through a government grant, Christina has been able to purchase Pressure Cookers that she brings to hospitals and medical centres throughout West Africa in an attempt to increase the sterility of their instruments.


    Stay tuned to hear her story.
