    Boston’s Cycling Craze: 1880-1900

    in Fitness

    Sometimes in our fast paced world it’s difficult to imagine our communities of the past.  Historian Rui Santos detailed an average trip by horse and carriage from Boston to Plymouth in the 1830s lasting some 10 hours.  Fifty years later a new form of transportation would take center stage: the bicycle.  


    And it was during that time period between 1880 and 1900 that the intersection of race, athleticism and cycling came to mean new forms of freedom and expression.


    Lorenz Finison’s remarkable new book, Boston’s Cycling Craze paints the landscape of how a host of visionaries took to the streets and byways … all for the glory of the bicycle. Black, White, Asian and Biracial…they are all in the book and all chronicled in detail during these pioneer years of cycling.  


    Come explore with us as we turn back the clocks to the golden age of bicycles during and era worth noting in the annuls of American history.

    Educational System is not Teaching Kids so Why are we Handcuffing the Teachers?

    in Social Networking

    Schools are no longer a path to cultivation and a life of the mind; they are on a path of a job. Along the way, as schools became a training ground for corps of workers, they also became a means of furthering national interests. The debate about schools had become part of the debate about national power. Which brings us to the twenty-first century.


    When George W. Bush announced No Child Left Behind (NCLB), his purported intention was to encourage a set of practices and institute a set of assessments that would ensure every child got the same good start at school. Implicit in that formulation was the now familiar premise that it was up to schools to close the income gap between the rich and the poor. In its most beneficent form, it could have made a powerful difference in the lives of many children. If NCLB had ensured that all kids would learn how to read and that no child would become disenchanted enough to drop out, it might have been wonderful. But that’s not how NCLB played out.


    Within just a few years, teachers were rushing to make sure that each child got a higher score on the standardized tests than he or she had gotten the year before. School superintendents also felt compelled to see to it that their schools got higher scores every year. What had been promoted as a means of ensuring that all children received the fruits of our educational system became a relentless push toward improved test scores. With each year, more and more focus was on the scores themselves and less on the education the scores were intended to measure. At the national level, politicians threatened that if we didn’t educate everyone, once again our country might fall behind. The conversation was less about giving everyone access to reading, thoughtful engagement in civic life, or the pleasures of ideas, and much more about seeing to it that everyone could earn a decent wage.

    OUTSIDE, INSIDE A POLICE STATE

    in Politics

    Program Summary: April 25, 2015


    @Naomi_Fowler produces for the Tax Justice Network the monthly "Taxcast." 


    In the April 2015 Taxcast: How just are our tax systems towards women? Plus: one of the USA's biggest corporations (and tax avoiders) is repatriating billions from offshore and re-focusing on good old manufacturing again, and remember how the UK Prime Minister was 'leading the world' in transparency measures not so long ago? We discuss the letter a former Cayman Islands lobbyist and Conservative peer wrote to reassure the tax haven that it was an empty gesture to distract from the proposed Financial Transaction Tax.


    Then from Great Speeches and Interviews, Sacramento, CA "Inside the Police State."


     Police officer Adrian Schoolcraft secretly recorded his supervisors telling officers to manipulate crime statistics and make illegal arrests from 2008 to 2009. The Village Voice series that broke Schoolcraft's story was written by Graham Rayman. Ira Glass narrates the story. "Police Officer Schoolcraft, who worked in the relatively high-crime 81st precinct in Brooklyn, was not a happy camper. Some might call him a malcontent.
    In 2009, he began to secretly tape-record precinct roll calls at which commanding officers ordered cops like himself to refuse to take robbery victims’ crime complaints. Cops were also ordered to downgrade felonies — which are serious crimes — to less serious misdemeanors so that the precinct would appear safer than it actually was. Schoolcraft’s secret tape recordings might well have been ignored, had not the police department then done something shocking.  On Oct. 31, 2009, Schoolcraft left his tour early, saying he felt sick, and returned to his apartment in Queens. What happened next tells us much about "the police state."

    The Christian Message is Urgent: But Why????

    in Christianity

    On Christian television, radio and other media, I am constantly hearing the message- something like, "Jesus is coming. Get ready!" This is in fact a Biblical message, and the urgency they felt 2,000 years ago when sharing this same "get ready" message is not much different from what we feel today! And yes, He is coming back! What a glorious day!. But the greater need for the Christian message, most pointedly, the message of salvation through Jesus Christ, is a message for this very day; it is one that must be declared now! The salvation of Jesus Christ brings hope, light and life into people's lives right where they are, in their despair and in their flawed and myopic self-diagnosis and ineffective self-medication.


    Above all of this, the book of Hebrews says, basically: A person dies once, and then faces judgment. The odds have it that we, and people we know and love, will go before Jesus comes. Paul said to be absent from thje body is to be present with the Lord. Other Scripture implies that the dead wait for the return of the Lord, who will raise them up to their eternal reward. Whatever the mystery of this, it is only in our mortal lifetime that we have the opportunity to accept Christ's salvatoin, and to share Christ's salvation!!! This is urgent!!! 


    Finally, those not of the faith and those who contend against the faith, will take people away from the truth. They ask people to consider other "truth," to "imagine" realities different from what the Bible says. And whether intentionally or not, people often imagine themselves straight to Hell.  Jesus said the way that leads to life is narrow, and few find it. Helping people find that path, getting them out of the world's philosophical and ideological traps, so they don't miss Heaven, is urgent!

    Think of that song, relating to our walk with the Lord in this life.


    I need to realize that I am Heaven bound, this world is not my home.


    Jesus wants to spend time with us every day.


    It is the joy of my salvation that gives me strength to live the new life.


    The new life comes by believing in Jesus, asking him into your life, your heart and be my God.


    He is the only way to heaven, he is the only way to obtain eternal life.


    And when you have received him, you will know it.. its like drinking living water.


    You feel alive like you never felt before. The beauty of the Lord and his creation is revealed to you in a new way.


    Life looks and feels different, all of a sudden you know that all things are going to work out.


    Because you have Jesus, you know that God is hearing your prayers and knows the desires of your heart.


    He is going to work things out for the good.


    So we can sing and give Paise to God for his goodness and revealing the life of his Son to us

    A Conversation with Munch-Dog

    in Hip Hop Music

    Munch-Dog’s interest in music began as a young man growing up in St. Mary’s County, Maryland, when he heard two prominent hip hop stars-- “2pac” and “Scarface.” Their gifts, talents, and passion were expressed in a real way that could be related to, understood, and felt deeply by audiences of varied status, culture, and ethnicity.



    With this inspiration, in 1993, he started freestyling. He would spend time practicing in his bedroom alone, and with his
    group of friends. They quickly became some of the best freestylist in their area.

    In 2000, Munch-Dog, Izy-O and two other members decided to form the rap click and record label “K.O.A.” (Knowing Our Aim). They made three mixed tapes and a compilation album. With the help of producers, “JT” and “Stretch” they became known for their lyrical ability and music beats. Performing all over the DMV with fellow KOA member “Relentlezz Dre” they became known for their stage presence and ability to draw a crowd.

    In 2008, Munch-Dog embarked upon his solo career. He has accomplished the following:

    • Recorded and released on iTunes, his first solo album, “Finally Here”
    • Has opened up for artists such as: David Banner, Knowledge (from the Grammy award winning group, “Diggable Planets”), and more
    • Recorded his
    first music video-- “Baby Let me Know,” with the three time, DMV award winning, Skinny
    Corleone


     


    Munch-Dog's New Mixtape "Nobody's Safe...Vol 1" is dropping this spring. with the 2 lead singles "Beat The Block" & "Everything"
