    Relationship Month -- Parent & Child -- The Parker J Cole Show

    in Entertainment

    People make the world go around. That's a fact. Without people, we really would be a 'pale blue ball’ like Sagan once said. How we interact with each other helps to build families, communities, and cultures. All this month on the Parker J Cole show, we will be discussing relationships -- from husband and wives to friends and siblings. Each week, our commentary will focus on particular aspect of the relational wheel.


    This week on the show, we'll be discussing the dynamics of the parent child relatonship. The modern take on family has changed drastically. Blended families, grandparents raising grandchildren, single parenthood -- they now make a percentage of familes once dominated by a mother, father, and children all naturally born to each other. 

    What does the Bible say about the parent -- child relationship? How do we work under this modern dynamic? Join me for an insightful discussion with Minster Yvette Allen Tatum as we expand on this topic. Call in at 646-668-8485, press 1 to be live on air. Or, you can download the Stitcher app and follow us there.  Click on the link here: http://tobtr.com/8297983. Tune in!

    Who Did It To You? Roundtable Discussion with Sis Pamela and Dr James Jones

    in Current Events

    The Great Debate " Do we make excuses for God" Did God Create Peace and Evil? Tonight Debaters are Brother Jess Us vs Sister Shemeka This will be an all out pound for pound no holds barred debate! Truth will come to you~ 


    The challenge facing all of us is to rise above the things that have kept us divided in the past, by focusing us on the agenda of creating a better future for our people to see how all of us, with all of our varied differences, can come together and direct our energy, not at each other, but at the condition of the reality of the suffering of our people, that we might use all of our skills, gifts and talents to create a better world for ourselves, our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. It is time for us to stop thinking and acting solely on behalf of our churches, mosques, temples, synagogues and organizations. It is time for us as leaders to come together and begin to think, plan, and act on behalf of the whole of our people. We must put an end to the Mischief and the Mischief Maker!

    Not So Mad Science #HaroldMuhammad 323.927.2913

    in Science

    Hosted By: Harold Muhammad


    Harold, an eclectic and voracious reader, began his venture in the world of the written word as a child of 2 years.  Scraps of paper, candy wrappers, dictionary's right through the entire encyclopedia Britannica. Yet Harold was driven to books of the sciences. Physics, Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, he met them all with great wonder and fascination. He delved into each discipline as if his very life depended upon understanding its depth.


    It was not until the words of The Hon. Elijah Muhammad that the essence and understanding of the sciences began to have true purpose and meaning. He said, "all there is to know is written in a book, read".


    Harold began his collegiate pursuit at Hampton Institute; he then forayed to Fairleigh Dickenson University. At FDU the practice of the Social Sciences, public activism, and public speaking became a trusted part of mental fabric.


    Harold is the husband to Celestine Muhammad, and the father of 10 extraordinary children, and 8 grandchildren. Harold has the benefit of having the most exceptional and wondrous teachers to whom he owes all that he has learned, will learn and knows to this very day, The Most  Hon. Elijah Muhammad, the Hon. Min. Louis Farrakhan, his Father Alfred Eatman, and his Grandfather  the Late Captain, Harold D. Hook.

    Conversations with Deli - Educating You On What Matters

    in Education

    Join me as I welcome authors of Footsteps of a Forgotten Soldier:  The Life and Times of David Carll.  Francis S. Carl and Denice Evans Sheppard are the descendants of David Carll, and they will share their latest book about David Carll’s fascinating and powerful American story.  Tune in to take a remarkable journey, in the footsteps of a forgotten soldier.  


    At a time in American history when slavery was still practiced in many Southern states during the Civil War, thousands of free hard working black men from the state of New York answered the call of duty once a colored regiment had been authorized in the state of New York.  One such young man who answered the call was David Carll, from the town of Oyster Bay, New York. At the age of eighteen he would set out on a Journey that would take him from the small village where he was born and raised into the deep south behind Confederate enemy lines in South Carolina while assigned to the 26th United States Colored Troop Regiment. One hundred and fifty years after the Civil War ended, the story of this one soldier will be told by his descendants. Records compiled from the National Archives in Washington DC, as well as records from many other reliable sources including oral history from David Carll's grandchildren makes this story possible.  What was uncovered in the research was a remarkable story that seemed to rise up from the very soil David Carll stood on.  For more information about David Carll visit www.davidcarll.com

    IS THE AMERICAN DREAM TO BE A CHRISTIAN AUTHOR?

    in Christianity

    Tough Talk Christian Radio with Host Tony Gambone with Special Guest Darla Noble and David Lee Windecher:


    Darla Noble is a Christian author/ghostwriter and speaker with over 25 years of experience in the Christian market as well as nearly 30 years of service in youth/family ministry.


    Darla's weekly parenting blog, Because Momma D Says (www.mommadsays.blogspot.com) can be heard on Daybreak USA with Angie Austin each Wednesday morning and is expanding to other radio stations in early 2106.


    Darla and her husband of thirty-five years have four children, five grandchildren, and enjoy spending time outdoors and traveling.


    David Lee Windecher was raised impoverished in the gang-infested streets of Miami. David was first arrested at age eleven. What started as desperate measures to feed his family of six turned into a criminal lifestyle racked with vice and violence. Over the following eight years, Windecher joined a gang, sold dope, built and masterminded a crime ring and was arrested 13 times.


    David Lee Windecher beat the self-imposed negative cycle of street life through an unwavering faith in God and sheer commitment to be better. He vanquished self-doubt and conquered his deep fears of fitting in at school to pursue an education. David fought tirelessly to beat the system holding him down. He overcame seemingly insurmountable obstacles to achieve his dream and change his fate

    power of perception writers with RC and JP Carter

    in Spirituality

    RC & JP Carter (Chris & Joan to their friends) have been married for almost forty years. They have five daughters, one son and thirteen grandchildren. Chris has been a full time air traffic controller for the last 27 years. Both Chris and Joan were also actively involved in Christian ministry for 20 years before retiring. They served as both associate pastors and pastors of their own church. They ministered deliverance to many people during that time. Even now during their paranormal investigations, they are often called upon to cleanse and anoint homes and sometimes the people living there.


    Joan first saw apparitions at an early age growing up in Massachusetts. She was always told that ghosts were not real, which didn’t stop the spirits from making themselves known. Chris was exposed to the paranormal with a UFO experience when he was young in Illinois. Now they both enjoy doing paranormal investigations in residential and public buildings when called upon.


    During their ministry they wrote many plays and skits. They took a troop of performers throughout southern California performing in churches and dinner theaters. Since they had a large family many of their vacations were full of adventure and misadventure. When they would return home from a vacation they would regale people with stories of their travels. People constantly told them “you should write a book”. Now many years later they decided to do just that.


    Their first three novels, The O’Rourke Series, are mysteries. These books have both strong male and female characters. In this series of books old school detectives solve hi-tech crime. The O’Rourke team are diligent, loyal, fearless, honest and hard-working people. They are the stuff America is made of.


    Book four of the O’Rourke Series is currently on the drawing board. .
