SORT BY Relevancy
The month of Ramadan, the 9th month of the muslim calendar is the month the Holy Qur'an was reveal to Prophet Muhammad through the Angle Jabril,1435 years ago. Revealed as Revelation from G-d, The Lord; Creator of mankind, for the guidance of mankind.
To receive the guidance of G-d's word, once must learn to restraint their desires (Nafs) The three development of the human soul.
The soul prone to or having a tendency to sin, the soul that is conscience of G-d, and the soul that has become free for G-d.
Holy Qur'an, Surah (Chapter) 2:
183. O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may (learn) self-restraint,-
185. Ramadhan is the (month) in which was sent down the Qur'an, as a guide to mankind, also clear (Signs) for guidance and judgment (Between right and wrong). So every one of you who is present (at his home) during that month should spend it in fasting, but if any one is ill, or on a journey, the prescribed period (Should be made up) by days later. Allah intends every facility for you; He does not want to put to difficulties. (He wants you) to complete the prescribed period, and to glorify Him in that He has guided you; and perchance ye shall be grateful.
"Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may attain taqwaa (reverence and awe of your Lord)." (Holy Qur'an 2:183)
“Whenever you fast, do not look dismal, like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces so as to show others that they are fasting” (Matthew 6:16).
We want to this Saturday, on Critical Discourse, discuss and enact, the process of fasting.
Fasting means many things to many people. For Muslims, it is a pillar of Al-Islam, especially during the month of Ramadan. We read in the Bible, where Jesus (Peace by Upon Him) fasted for 40 days.
However one sees it, fasting provides that opportunity for the abstain from usual habits, and in the process, enter into a more reflective and humbled mood. It provides an opportunity to cleans oneself, spiritually, physically and morally, as we hopefully become more mindful of our environment, and get a chance to "recharge" of sorts.
It the position of thie writer, that from whatever religion, philosophy or ideology one comes from, fasting is of great benefit, and should be a regular practice. We can get into the finer details, but for sure, on Critical Discourse, we want to spread the idea of our selecting one day a week, to fast / abstain.
This writer is certain, that particularly amongst our people, such a practice and discipline will yield positive and transformative results, in ways we could never imagine, so we ask that not only do you listen in, but share with Critical Discourse, your thoughts, ideas and past fasting experience, and how this proposal could be of great help to us.

We will examine the darkness that lurks in the heart of evil and how we have become the faces of death in our public display, social media conduct i.e. facebook, instagram, News, entertainment, get rich tactics, and the list goes on. Doers of Evil and evildoers we have become while planting seeds of evil in the minds of generations to come. Where did this behavior come from and how can it END?

The problem: Challenge in engaging and retaining patients in anti-depressant treatment
--over 50% of patients do not take anti-depressants as prescribed --30% of patients discontinue treatment after one month
--Anti-depressants can help people overcome their depression, not completing treatment leaves them at risk of the depression returning and over the long term, having multiple episodes of depression.
Our approach to the problem: Training psychiatrists in Motivational Interviewing in order to improve how they engage patients in treatment and help build and sustain their motivation to get better. But a key challenge was to keep session length consistent with the usual 15-20 minutes.

If you're trying to lose weight and have grown tired of the struggle, this segment is for you. If you’re a regular listener of the show, you’re aware that we believe that life is about relationships. In this discussion with author Aaron D. Snyder, we’ll delve into our relationships with ourselves, our relationship with food and why it's so difficult to shed pounds.
Aaron Snyder had a very unhealthy lifestyle until he was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes in September 2000 at the age of 22. While Type II Diabetes doesn’t usually emerge until middle age, his sedentary junk food style of living placed him at the front of the line to receive this shocking diagnosis.
But rather than accept a tedious, dreary existence of medical dependency, he changed his mind, accepted responsibility for his physical well-being and changed his life.
Among the largest category of books are diet and cookbooks lending fact to America’s love of food and obsession with weight loss. There are many books on the market that contain medical advice and wisdom on health, self-help, dieting and fitness, but nowhere is there a book that conveys thorough information on all of these crucial topics quite like Aaron’s book, The New Diabetes Prescription: The Diet, Exercise and Mindset Revolution.
Arranged in 12 Prescribed methods to address our relationship with food, being accountable for our choices, managing stress, controlling emotional eating, maintaining healthy blood sugar levels, choosing the foods that are right for you and following through.

With alarming frequency, foster and health care providers are turning to a risky but convenient remedy to control the behavior of thousands of troubled kids: numbing them with psychiatric drugs that are untested on and often not approved for children. Nearly 1 out of every 4 adolescents in California foster care system is being drugged , 3 times the rate for adolescents nationwide. Even more alarming is that of the tens of thousands prescribed psychiatric drugs, nearly 60% were prescribed powerful antipsychotics which have been documented by 72 international drug regulatory warnings to cause heart problems, stroke, diabetes, convulsions and sudden death.
According to IMS Health, the leading vendor of all US prescribing data, nearly 9 million children currently being prescribed psychiatric drugs—with more than 1 million are under the age of five.

There are many humble followers of Christ in the Catholic Church, however, the letter of the law as dictated and prescribed by heaven must be obeyed, for they also are commanded to come out of Babylon the Great to build Zion, saith the Lord. This is impossble without revelation, for all are liars who say they are of the true church without the revelations of Jesus Christ and the priesthood of Melchizedek.
There are also many theistic evolutionists in this church, as in all churches, built up, but not unto the Lord by authority and direct revelation. Bill O'Reilly is one of these, saith the Lord. It is impossible to attend Harvard without being infected by this disease, and it is a disease for the following reasons, for it distorts the world-view of those afflicted with it:
Theistic evolutionism pretends to a belief in God but insists in evolution as the explanation of origins. Those who take the Bible literally are considered uneducated, backward fanatics.
God used evolution as a means of creating.
The Bible contains no usable or relevant ideas which can be applied in present-day science.
The Bible must be reinterpreted when and wherever it contradicts the present evolutionary world view.
The existence of God is assumed, but He is not at all the form-giving and inspiring author of the Scriptures. Rather, the Bible is regarded as the product of historical influences; the writers reflected their own circumstances and the contemporary world view. Hence the need by these to rewrite history.
Therefore this denial of miracles by O'Reilly in his book constitutes Killing Jesus afresh, for it is actually anti Christ, for it denies the Holy Ghost, saith the Lord. I know the accounts in the Bible of Christ, are in every particular true by the visions of the Lord which I have been prvileged to behold.

Tonight we're talking to Holistic Psychic - Therapist Kelly Simas about how using tools like astrology, tarot and energy healing can be used for people who live with depression to find clarity, understanding and healing. As with any therapy, this is not meant to take the place of treatment with your doctor or prescribed medication.
I came to know Kelly through her videos on You Tube, and began working with her to gain clarity in some areas of my life that I was struggling with. I have found her gifts to be genuine. Astrology, tarot and energy healing may not be main-stream methods of healing depression, but I have used them to understand myself more fully and thus heal through their use.
Kelly Simas is a Holistic Psychic -Therapist and an Intuitive Astrologer Counselor & Coach. She completed her studies in Spiritual Psychotherapy at Transformational Arts College in 2014. Kelly has always had a thirst for knowledge and self discovery which has lead her in self studying Astrology and Numerology since 2007. Kelly has received a scholarship at RASA School of Astrology and is a certified Astrologer while pursuing her official degree in Astrology. These tools have helped her bring much insight, understanding and acceptance in her life her which in turn, has inspired her to share her greatest passion in providing guidance for others on their journey of healing and self discovery.
Mount Albert, Ontario – While journalism adheres to strict rules for how the specific facts of a story are recorded and reported, fiction is a landscape where, in some ways, there are no rules except to make the story seem real. Still, writing a fictional novel requires the same discipline, curiosity and attention to detail as the best investigative journalism.
Bonnie Toews is an author, journalist and the founder of Whistler House Publishing. This month marks the release of the second novel in Toews’s Trilogy of Treason series, Covert Denial, inspired by her experiences as a journalist covering Rwanda’s humanitarian relief effort in 1994.
“I found the only way I could publicize what went on was to tell it through fiction,” says Toews. “More often than not, people believe fiction more than they believe the truth.”
While reporting in Rwanda, Toews discovered she and servicemen had been prescribed an antimalarial drug known as Mefloquine that for some people causes severe adverse reactions. The drug made them more combative and aggressive by entering the neural network and attacking the frontal brain and adrenal gland. Some have even theorized the recent massacre at Fort Hood could be linked to this drug and the U.S. surgeon general has since banned the drug, particularly for Special Forces troops on the ground.
“The Canadian peacekeepers were very mum at first, but after I was able to earn their trust, I didn’t even have to ask questions,” says Toews. “But back home, no one was interested in what was happening to them.”
In addition to her work as a novelist, Toews is an advocate for better care and treatment of Canada’s veterans at http://homecomingvets.wordpress.com.
Today's episode included the following topics:
*Child is making some good progress, even after some bumps in the road. He has pooped in the potty a few times but suddenly won't. He does an extensive "poop dance", mom prompts him but he'll sit for a minute, pop up, and then poop on the floor. Is this normal in the process? Does he need more time to "get it"?
*Child is having severe constipation issues. She's had a enema at the children's hospital and prescribed laxatives. She doesn't want to poop in the potty and she doesn't want to poop in a diaper. Pooping itself causes a lot of drama. This child has what I call "butt trauma."
*Family on day 3 with a 20 month old boy. Mom is definitely seeing progress but not a ton. Biggest problem is child won't sit to pee for any length of time.
*Techical question: how to download OCPT to the iPad.
*Child is doing great with pee. But with poop, she almost seems to get no warning. She will tell parents immediately after she poops but every poop seems to catch her by surprise
*Night Training: why we do it. Why you shouldn't just leave your child to wet the bed. Why you shouldn't use undies/trainers with rubber pants. And other random questions about night training.
*How to talk to your friends about potty training. (spoiler alert: you really don't)
If you want change than you must vote for change, keeping the same person at The Board of Commissioners will not make your life easier... You need someone on your side that is going to give your children fighting chance in life... Understanding what the Board of Commissioners does will help you and your family.
The commission acts as the executive of the local government, levies local taxes, administers county governmental services such as prisons, courts, public health oversight, property registration, building code enforcement, and public works such as road maintenance. The system has been supplanted in large part as disparate sparsely settled regions become urbanized and establish tighter local governmental control, but in many more rural states the county commission is the form of government which oversees county management.
So, far today has the Board of Commissioners acted on your behalf. Do you want to change the jails or prisons policy? If, you want more education it started here with Conservative Black Woman name Brenda. She has a Son and grandson who she wants a bright future for. The Black male’s future is low priority for most Commissioners not Brenda... Just listen to her story it may seem like yours...
Is the governing board and policy-making body of County government? While many of its powers, duties and responsibilities are prescribed by law, and diffused through the wide-spread use of commissions, boards, committees, and independently elected county officers, the Board is in charge of developing and approving County policy setting the county budget. Jon Care, Board Coordinator, provides general administrative and liaison support for the Board of Commissioners, coordinates Board Committee Meetings, and maintains committee files.
PROVERBS 4:20 SAYS, "My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart; for they are life to those that find them, and health to all their flesh." The word health in the Hebrew language is medicine. God's word is the sasve , medicine we need. When was the last time you tried and went through the prescribed perscription that God wrote.
Come go with me on a month of prescribed word for whatever healing you need.
Starting today: We will go through healing scriptures of prescribed word and testify at the end of 31 days of taking the word, meaditating on it, giving the word time to work.
