SORT BY Relevancy
The newlyweds knew it would be surprising.As Donna and Mike entered their wedding reception, an unwitting announcer told the expectant crowd, "Ladies and gentleman, put your hands together for the new Mr. and Mrs. Salinger!"Some guests clapped, some chuckled at what they presumed was a joke and most looked at one another in confusion. The couple spent the entire reception and some of their honeymoon explaining to people what they had done.The groom, you see, had started his day as Mike Davis and ended it by doing something precious few of his brothers-in-arms do: He took his wife's last name instead of her taking his. They were married in November. "We figured they'd say 'Huh' and get on with it."Three months later, I'm still taking (flak) from one of my college roommates."The Salingers broke a patriarchal tradition so ingrained in American society that many women's studies researchers have yet to study it. "It hasn't been a large enough social phenomenon that it's hit the radar as something to be studied."That may be coming. The California Legislature is set to consider a bill this month that would allow men to change their surnames upon marriage as seamlessly as women now can. Only seven states now allow a man who wishes to alter his name after his wedding to do so without going through the laborious, frequently expensive legal process set out by the courts for any name change. Women don't have to do so.The bill is co-sponsored by the ACLU of California as a follow-up to a federal lawsuit the civil rights group filed in December on behalf of Michael Buday, a Los Angeles man who wants to take on his wife's surname, Bijon, to show his affinity for his father-in-law. He accuses the state of gender discrimination for forcing him into the more complex process.
In today's world, any enterprise hoping to be successful uses branding as a tool to
cause that enterprise, person or product to stand out among other similar products or persons.
Branding would include making a name known for what it it is. GOD ALMIGHTY is a distinct
brand since HE IS THE ONLY real GOD. All others are manufactured and fake. HE is so the
CREATOR that HIS very name is like no other NAME. For example, HE is the only
GOD of SALVATION. So what's in a name? Join us for live prayer at 6:00 AM Mon.-Fri. Dial 714.459.3963.

An idea just popped into your head which would require you to think out of the box. It seems just too big to achieve, but you have achieved other big dreams in the past. What do you tell youself. Do you cheer yourself on and step out in faith? Do you remind yourself of past failures or past successes? Do you think, "I can" or 'I can't"? Do you jump in with both feet or do you tiptoe toward the goal? Do you create a picture of success or of failure? There are times when the project is too large and we need to get the support and help from others. We have to believe in what we are doing to get others to agree to help. What is the name of the game you play as you try step out into a new venture?
On Friday, Aug. 14, noon PT/3 p.m. ET/8 p.m. UK, Purpose Talk Radio host Cindy Freeman will discuss some of the games she has played with herself over the years. This includes the one that put her "out there" to create Positive News Month and the positive emagazine Positive News Media and career changes over the years. Some of her admissions might pull out raw memories for you and for her; yet, there is an understanding that sometimes we have to review history to not repeat it and other times to be able to repeat it. Join the conversation via Skype or phone at 347-205-9074.
