    AUTHOR OF The Matrix and The Terminator Movie Franchises - Sophia Stewart

    in Spirituality

    AUTHOR OF The Matrix and The Terminator Source Work - Sophia Stewart - LIVE HERE



    Writer of the Terminator and Matrix movies

    In 1986 Ms. Stewart answered a magazine advertisement for a science fiction script that the Wachowski brothers were going to make into a comic book. Years later, Ms. Stewart contends, her vision hit the movie screens on March 31, 1999 in the form of Matrix. In fact the Wachowski brothers used a verbatim quote from her book to introduce the film which was later removed after an FBI investigation into the criminal copyright infringement was initiated.
    When I first spoke with Sophia Stewart a few months ago in April 2012, she was most gracious with her time and forthcoming with the complex details of her lawsuits. The legal documents involved could make your head spin. She shared some of them with me.
    When Stewart saw the Matrix, she recognized her work right away and called the legal department at Warner Brothers on April 1, 1999.

    June 18: Winning Through Defeat

    in Sports

    Champions have been crowned. Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo go toe to toe, discussing how the championships were actually won. 

    Despite a remarkable heroic effort, LeBron James failed to lead the Cavaliers to the NBA title. Did Golden State win or did Cleveland lose? LBJ became the only player in NBA Finals history to lead BOTH teams in points, assists, and rebounds throughout the series. Should LeBron have been named MVP, even in a loss? If the Cavs are at full strength, would they have won? Will David Blatt be fired? Can Cleveland retool in hopes of another run at a championship? Mike relishes in another Cleveland failure and explains why the curse will last forever. Where do the 2014-2015 Golden State Warriors rank among the great teams of the past? 

    The Chicago Blackhawks complete their dynasty. What led to Chicago's third Stanley Cup in six years? Would Tampa Bay have won with a healthy Ben Bishop? Does three rings make Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews now better than Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin? Is two franchises hogging five of the last six Stanley Cups good or bad for the NHL as a league? 

    With the NBA and NHL postseason now over, Major League Baseball has control of the sports world for a few months. Have the St. Louis Cardinals finally met their greatest threat, the FBI? #HackGate

    What's Hot: Steelers minicamp fight, Bradshaw vs. Staubach and much more

    in Football

    The weather is warm, the Pittsburgh Pirates are streaking, and it's getting even closer to football season.

    Steelers OTAs have also heated up, exemplified by a scuffle earlier this week between defensive linemen Clifton Geathersand the Steelers offensive line. In this edition of "What's Hot", hosts Bryan DeArdo and Chris Carter will discuss the incident-the second one involving Geathers and the Steelers O-line- and discuss whether or not these skirmishes are good for the team.

    The show will also discuss the recent comments of defensive back Shamarko Thomas, who recently said that the secondary will need to "lay the licks" for it to be a feared unit in 2015. Speaking of units, NFL.com recently ranked every current NFL backfield as well as the greatest quarterback franchises in league history. Find out where the Steelers landed in each ranking, as well as whether or not their rankings were accurate.

    Speaking of units, there's one unit that hasn't garnered many headlines although it might be the best unit on the team. Find out which unit that is, and why their success is so vital to the Steelers' overall success in 2015.

    Last but not least, the hosts will debate between who they'd rather have starting for their team between Terry Bradshaw andTom Brady in this week's installment of "Select a Steeler". '

    This week's show will air Wednesday night at 9:00 p.m. ET. To listen anytime, search "The Standard is The Standard" on iTunes to listen in the podcast section. The podcast will also be featured on Thursday here on BTSC.

    Fans are encouraged to call in at (347) 850-8581 and let us know which quarterback they'd want patrolling their team between Bradshaw and Brady, along with any other questions and comments Steelers related. Enjoy the show!
