‘A Killing in the Sun’ is a collection of speculative fiction from Africa. It draws from the rich oral culture of the author’s childhood, to tell a wide variety of stories. Some of the stories are set in a futuristic Africa, where technology has transformed everyday life and a dark force rules. Others are set in the present day, with refugee aliens from outer space, ghosts haunting brides and grooms, evil scientists stalking villages, and greedy corporations creating apocalypses. There are murder mysteries, tales of reincarnation and of the walking dead, and alternative worlds whose themes any reader will identify with. This collection is deftly crafted, running along the thin boundary of speculative and literary genres.
The pharmaceutical industry, aided by the Food and Drug Administration and congress has created a climate whereas we can be forced to take harmful drugs lawfully, or, go to jail. This is all being done in the name of profit. Foster kids, military members and others are being forced to take harmful psychotropic drugs with catastrophic results. Dr. Fred Baughman, a neurologist, will be on today to discuss the fraud of psychiatry and the pharmaceutical industry. We will examine how parents have a choice between jail and giving their kids harmful drugs. We will look at how harmful drugs are killing military members and being classified as suicide deaths. We will explore how foster care, CPS and social workers are supporting this harmful situation and threatening the families they are supposed to be protecting.
Live Show From Mangrove Killing Protest
Today at 4:00pm

Tell developers and prospective home buyers they should not sacrifice protected species for personal vanity. Join our celebration of Arbor Day. Let the world know you want justice for mangroves.
The majority of the Planning Commissioners today voted to approve the observation deck. The Planning Staff and the developers' representatives denied knowing about the DEP investigation. They claimed they used a certified cutter and that mostly what they cut were vines and Brazilian Pepper. Not true. But as usual, citizens are not allowed to rebut. Only developers, their spokespeople, and planning staff are. I presented evidence, including my documented phone call to the DEP, about the site. The other thing I learned--and I am appalled by this--is that our planning staff did not visit the site prior to deciding to approve the observation deck. How can you approve something for a sensitive conservation easement and never visit it prior to making your decision? That is poor practice, in my opinion. I stated that the DEP rep told me that citizens' concerns were "legitimate" and that the mangrove cutting at the site had "exceeded the limits of the scope of the general permit." I had heard that weeks ago Commissioner Chappie had been informed about the cutting and the dEP inquiry, and I have an email from a Palma Sola resident to the DEP rep in which she tells the rep to send documentation to Chappie when it is ready.http://www.thebradentontimes.com/news/2015/01/15/opinion/developer_s_dock_request_looks_like_two_step_circumvention_of_mangrove_policy/
Israel was apparently unaware an Iranian general was travelling in a Hezbollah convoy it targeted with an air strike in Syria on Sunday, killing the general as well as a senior Hezbollah commander.
The claim – made by an unnamed senior Israeli security source in an interview with Reuters on Tuesday – came as Iran threatened to retaliate for the killing and amid growing concern about the security situation on Israel’s northern border with Lebanon and Syria.

In the 1st hour, David Brayton was arrested for openly carrying his firearm, in an area that he was permitted to open carry. How can that be? It happened. Gun control advocates are working to destroy the 2nd Amendment. Could it happen to you?
Remembering the Holocaust. Yes, it was real! Some people dont believe it. Know your history. Teach your children, so that it never happens again. (Hr 2)
Obamacare Exp, Is California Governor Brown guilty of conspiracy to murder? He keeps releasing dangerous criminals, One just killed and raped a 19 DAY OLD baby his own daughter! (Hr 3)
What else is on today's show? Well, you'll just have to tune in to hear. It's always current events and hot topics, with some crazy news stories thrown in for good measure! You'll be entertained and informed.
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
What else can be said about this book that hasn't already been discussed. I have no idea. But we are gonna give ya our point of view on this great story. Alan Moore gives us, what some call, the best Joker story ever written. Find out if we agree. Source Material brings in Jason Teasley of the From The Cheap Seats Podcast and welcomes back Ronnie Adams of the Screaming Boy Podcast! Jason had his choice of what book he would like to cover and it is definitely a doozie! Join us tonight at 10 pm to get a good summary of what this book is about and our unique take on this stand alone story. Plus Teasley has a big announcement so stay tuned faithful listeners!

Everyone of us was born with a purpose and a divine assignment given by the creator of the Universe. Each one of us has a vibration, a sound and a method of doing things. No 2 people are exactly alike. Unity in diversity can be achieved.
It's time to knock over the sacred cows we so often have within the "Black Community". We have community secrets and sadly a whole lot of family secrets that have been passed on from generation to generation. What I mean is that we have certain habits, attributes, qualities that are often beneath who we really are that play a detrimental role in our demise and our inability to rise collectively. We have to now begin to have real honest conversation with each other so the cycle of dysfunction can finally end. This will allow us to truly rise and shine because the light of the Most High only functions in the realm of TRUTH can prevail.
Why so many dysfunctional relationships? Why so many babies by multiple fathers? How does the absence of a father impact our sister's lives? What does a strong "Black Independent Woman" really mean? Why generation after generation on public assistance? What happened to proper parenting? Why does it appear so many have resentment towards the "Black Man"? Why does it appear so many don't recognize that being promoted faster by the White establishment over their Black men further divides our community? Why is the strip club lure so prevalent amongst our daughters? Should our sisters be part of the "Women's liberation movement"? Why do so many embrace the White woman's symbol of beauty? There was a time in the past when a “Black Woman” would never come out the house with rollers in her head and nightclothes on. What happened to our elegant sisters? Let’s collectively examine these issues.
Men you are up next…
Is social media killing your BOP? Small business and medium businesses have grown to rely on social media to help them brand, "connect" and sell thier services. Some businesses pay to "boost" thier posts for a seemingly larger reach, increase thier fan bases and elevate the awareness of thier BOP. Most believe that though the stats are promising, they are not effective. Many businesses are awaking to a space of confusion, dissapointment and discouragement over things like lack of reach, connection and interactions with thier brands. Many people have seen a sharp decline in the amount of people who see thier posts. Many people have put so much time into social media that they are killing thier businesses. Social media is an illusion. Yes....it is "social" Yes, people (about 6%) will see your posts but even General Motors with 50,000 fans has realized that there is no more money and time to be wasted in trying to build the brand with face book.
We Business Hippies have awoken from this illusion as well. We are leaving face book in 2015 and we already have cut it down to no more than 20 minutes a day for our whole social media portfolio. We realized that we were killing our business through our reliance on facebook to carry our networking weight. The truth is, no one in your news feed really cares, they are not going to buy your products enough to sustain your business, They are likely to not even see your posts. "They" are not the problem. We are. So tonight we will chat about this honestly. Where we went wrong, how we have damaged our business and what we are going to do to thrive in this ADD nation. Join in the conversation!
