    Closing Colleges? Students Unite To Fight Governor Withholding Education Funds

    in Women

    Running a government, whether it is a city, state, or country, is like running a household. You look at what your operating costs are, look at your total household income, and decide how to spend the money you make to pay bills and make sure everyone is fed, clothed, kept warm and safe, and educated.  That's what good parents do to take care of the children whose lives are in their hands. The problem with some elected officials is that they are not being good "parents" of the "children" they are supposed to take care of, namely, the voters who are entrusting them with decisions that affect people's lives.  Schools in Illinois are being threatened with closure because Governor Bruce Rauner, elected by a small percentage of votes, has held up the release of funds for education, refusing to sign legislation presented by the Illinois General Assembly. Students have united to fight for their right to receive education and are mounting a massive voter registration drive, as well as mass demonstrations and lobbying elected officials to push the Governor to act. If not, what next? Students have already shown how economic boycotts and refusal of sports teams to play can have an impact. Today's guests, student leaders Darren Martin from Chicago State University and Nicolas Martinez from Northeastern Illinois University discuss the power of a new, politically involved, educated generation.

    The Miracle After Midnight

    in Basketball

    It will barely be a blip on the national sports conscious. ESPN will give it a 20 second highlight package. Troy Daniels' deep three pointer in double overtime may make the top ten. NBATV might mention that the Hornets won the game after diving into Demarcus Cousins' 56 point performance. And then....with barely a whimper...it will disappear into the cold winter winds of January NBA basketball.

    But that may make it all the more sweeter for the hardcore Hornets fans that listen to the show. The Charlotte Hornets miracle after midnight over Cousins and the Sacramento Kings will be ours and ours alone.

    Without an above-average NBA starting lineup's worth of talent, with three of their four bigs fouled out, against an unstoppable force of nature underneath the basket, in a hostile environment, in double overtime...the Hornets won a basketball game to move to 22-23, 9th in the Eastern Conference.

    This show is our love letter.

    Deepertruth: Eucharistic Miracle of Les Ulmes France 1668

    in Religion

     On June 2 1668, Saturday of the Octave of Corpus Christi, at Les Ulmes France, the Pastor of the Church, Nicolas Nezan, began using incense before the Altar leading praise to God.  While the hymn Pange Lingua was being sung, “and having reached the stanza ‘Verbum caro Panem verum’, a unique vision of the Eucharistic  takes place during before the faithful singing.  With the Blessed Host being exposed on the Altar for public adoration, a mysterious shape of a man with light-brown hair flowing behind his head down the top part of his back, a illumination was seen surrounding his face, He had his hands crossed over the other crossing over his body, and he wore a white tunic covering His body.

    This vision lasted for about a quarter of an hour as the faithful all witnessed the event.  This excited everyone to such a degree that on 13 June Father Nezan sent word to the localBishop Henry Arnauld, who sent for an inquiry.  Because of the threat of the French Revolution, the Blessed Sacrament was properly consumed by the Vicar of Puy Notre Dame who feared that Jesus would be profaned.
