Massive clean up in metropolitan cities, areas of massive crowds. There was a kind of continuity, or flow or if you like a love-link between Creator and Creation and everything flowed directly from the Creator's being right? What is cold objective logic and the manipulation of material reality? what is dualism and is it around the planet even today? Why are you here and what is happening to humans today?

Problems at California's state-run facilities climb, despite the much-anticipated new Stockton Prison that accepted its first inmates last July. In six short months, the complex became home to nearly 1,300 men with various medical concerns.
The Stockton facility was developed to reduce prison crowding elsewhere and bring inmate medical care up to constitutional standards. It was opened as a result of lawsuits that showed neglectful health care under CDCR. Prison medical operations have since been managed by Receiver J. Clark Kelso.
Kelso hoped Stockton would be the CDCR's first step toward a permanent solution to its unconstitutionally dangerous health conditions statewide.
CDCR was s confident in the Stockton project, they've tried to persuade courts to return control of the prison system to them since January 2013. However, their confidence was premature.
Due to numerous health & safety issues, Stockton halted admissions as of last week. Inmates' lawyers inspected the sprawling facility after learning of a patient death January 8th. The man bled to death in his bed while calling repeatedly for help.
Some of the more serious issues include:
- a scabies outbreak
-men w/ the wrong sized catheters lying in their own feces all night
- broken wheelchairs
- injured inmates assisting the more infirmed w/transport throughout buildings
- lack of clean towels forcing men to dry themselves with dirty linens
- serious staff shortages preventing bathroom breaks
The concerns at Stockton are sadly not unlike those at Coalinga State Hospital since 2005. Howrver, conditions hsve worsened for CSH residents. They're increasingly fearful as staff members continue to exercise their authority using unnecessary force. Patient abuse is becoming routine and stress levels are high for all men residing at the facility. The crisis continues...

The Best of C. H. Spurgeon on The Wednesday Sermon Show.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-92) was England's best-known preacher for most of the second half of the nineteenth century. In 1854, just four years after his conversion, Spurgeon, then only 20, became pastor of London's famed New Park Street Church (formerly pastored by the famous Baptist theologian John Gill). The congregation quickly outgrew their building, moved to Exeter Hall, then to Surrey Music Hall. In these venues Spurgeon frequently preached to audiences numbering more than 10,000—all in the days before electronic amplification. In 1861 the congregation moved permanently to the new Metropolitan Tabernacle.
This weekly show spotlights some of the very best speakers from around the world providing encouraging, inspirational and uplifting messages.
