Born in Finland—the land of flowers, of brilliant blue lakes, of endless summer nights, of saunas, and the ancient, mystic runes that sprang from the long, dark winter nights. So it’s natural that these elements find their way into Karen Rossi's writing. She began to write very early but didn’t start to seriously submit until she was past forty. She has also self-published a book of her poetry and have done several translations of children’s books from Finnish to English, but writing romance is definitely her # 1 serious love.
Host Cyrus Webb welcomes the dynamic writing duo behind the author Noelle August (Veronica Rossi and Lorin Oberweger) to #ConversationsLIVE to discuss their literary journey and what it's been like to see the response to their books, the newest of which is BOUNCE.

Richard Rossi continues his series on the Book of Revelation, debunking Doomsday date-setters by sharing what the last book of the Bible really teaches. He deals with the latest datesetting device, the Blood Moon. Richard also deals with the "Doctrine of the Nicolaitans," false prophets who put titles in front of their names to create personality cults unto themselves. Learn how current leaders in today's church are misleading many vulnerable people into exalting man. This show will equip you to not fall for false prophecies the next time they come around. (The text covered in today's show is the first two chapters of Revelation).
So-called prophets predict mass end-of-the-world judgment on America in the next couple days before "Shemitah," - earthquakes, floods, tsunamis as God's wrath for Supreme Court decision, Apocalypse comes before Obama leaves office, etc... Some with paranoid tendencies toward conspiracy theories are in a state of high anxiety. Doomsday false prophets hijack current events & give them a biblical spin to give validity to their teachings. In this interconnected Internet age, its always easy to hear about something bad, like the stock market crash, a shooting, a disease somewhere, which they point to as proof. They're convinced it's true because "the Stock Market Crash happened near Shemitah, and because Pope Francis is meeting with Obama." Richard Rossi used to be enmeshed in this strange subculture as a young man, and has gotten away from the craziness. In this episode, he shares his findings on what the Book of Revelation really teaches, findings that have come out of 25 years of studying & contemplating an alternate view different from those preaching gloom and doom.
"The fundamentalist culture is gripped by a spirit of fear," Richard said. "Most folks in this movement are very fearful. Fearful of being left behind, apocalypse, the devil, etc... Fear sells. Fear is primal and gets attention. Psychologically, it's damaging long-term to be immersed in fear, but effective to get attention & motivate. There are always calamities that can be used to reinforce fear. Preachers have used it be it the atrocities of Civil War in 1800's, Hitler's rise in WW2 (most Pentecostals said he was antichrist at the time), the Cuban Missile crisis in the early 1960's was the guaranteed end of the world to Pentecostals then, Y2K, etc....I've found as people get away from fear-based church stuff, they get healthier spiritually, mentally, psychologically."
GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS HOLDER Jack Condon was honored to be inducted to the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS as having the World's Largest "Charlie's Angels" Collection. It is another accomplishment in his decades of collecting Hollywood memorabilia. His hobby for collecting turned it into a book, a television movie and induction into the record books. Jack is the author of the "Charlie's Angels Casebook," in-depth look at the original television series featuring interviews with cast members, an episode guide, and photos from his private collection.
Jack took his interest to a further level, buying Backlot Movie, a movie memorabilia business that has been in Hollywood since 1972. This business is an extension of Jack's collecting. Because he enjoyed the pursuit of collecting for so many years, he felt it is a natural fit for continuing to work in a field that he has enjoyed for such a long time!

They arrive just after Cicero is murdered by Jerome but Jerome manages to escape. Elsewhere, Theo Galavan reveals the next stage of his plan as Barbara has a romantic encounter with Tabitha. Theo states that his family built Gotham and that he will get revenge on those who stole the credit for doing so. As the plan moves forward, Theo attends a charity event that Alfred, Bruce and Leslie Tompkins also attend. Despite the efforts of Gordon, Jerome and Barbara take the charity attendants hostage and kill the lieutenant mayor, per Theo's plan. When Theo attempts to act like he is stopping Jerome with the goal of making himself look like a hero, Jerome betrays Theo and attempts to kill Bruce. Theo then stabs Jerome in the neck and kills him, fulfilling his goal. Later, several Gotham citizens see Jerome's actions on television and begin having mental breakdowns. At Theo's home, he is kissed by Barbara as a jealous Tabitha watches in secret. Later, Bullock pays a visit to Oswald Cobblepot, threatening to beat him if he approaches Gordon for a favor again, as he still views him as Fish Mooney's manservant, and not the mob boss he has become.
