SORT BY Relevancy
The Zero-Tolerance rules adopted by many schools across the country has come under fire in recent months after a series of well-publicized incidents involving the suspension and/or expulsion of otherwise good students for seemingly innocent actions. The infractions triggering the rule varied from a schoolboy's pointing his finger at a fellow student like a gun and pretending to shoot him to a young girl's mother packing a small knife in her lunchbox so that she could cut an apple, to a young man who is accused of flashing a presumed gang hand signal in a photograph taken outside of school hours. All of these young people were suspended or expelled without the benefit of investigation or allowing the students any chance of self-defence. The rule and its draconian punishments is opposed by many educators and parents alike. Recent reports by such organizations as the APA have called into question the efficacy of zero-tolerance. They cite no net improvement in safety or student behavior as a result of aero-tolerance. Join Ken and Beth as they discuss this contentious issue. Ken is against and Beth is for. It looks like a showdown ladies and gentlemen. You won't want to miss it! 9:30PM PDT Thursday 3/13/2014, Beware the Ides-2 of March if you don't show up!!

Something is calling you, calling from within. Can we open ourselves to hearing, to listening? How do we choose to write from the Zero Point? Licensed psychotherapist and creative writing teacher Julie Tallard Johnson is the author of The Zero Point Agreement: How to Be Who You Already Are.

We will explore that space today.
Drawing from a vibrant tapestry of diverse spiritual teachings, Julie assists us with moving through resistance in our lives and in our writing, realizing the two are intrinsically inseparable. When we choose to connect to our "writer's witnessing presence", we can reorient ourselves naturally to the writing spirit already existent within the context of our daily lives. Frontier Beyond Fear host Susan Larison Danz has also done a significant amount of personal, exploratory writing within the past year, writing every day within the context of her life.

It was rained shortened. Almirola wins his first career race, and puts himself in contention for the 2014 chase for the Sprint Cup. Is he worthy? Because the race is rain shortened, does it take something away from Almirola? Does he have a shot at this championship?
We'll discuss the race. Two major accidents, one early, and one later took out about 32 cars out of contention for the win. We'll talk about what we thought about the racing, and if we thought it was exciting.

On a fateful day over a decade ago, two commercial airline flights were hijacked by terrorists and flown into the World Trade Center towers in New York City. Two days after the buildings fell on 9/11, as the dust and ash cleared and as torn and mangled bodies were pulled from the rubble, a worker at the site named Frank Silecchia discovered a peculiar object amidst the ruins.
The object was a 17-foot cross formed from two steel beams used in the construction of the World Trade Center. This cross became a symbol of hope in the days and weeks following the devastation of 9/11. It was one of the few parts of the towers that had not crumbled to bits or been incinerated and turned to ash as a result of the fiery explosions that accompanied the attacks.
As the cleanup effort continued around Ground Zero, this cross was placed on a pedestal on a plaza near the site of the attacks. Many people felt that its survival was providential, and it became a place where people prayed and left notes and messages of hope.
The Ground Zero Cross became the subject of much debate when plans for a September 11 Memorial Museum were put in motion. Several groups did not want the Christian symbol of the cross included in the memorial. However, in March 2013, a U.S. Court ruled that the Ground Zero Cross could be displayed as a part of the memorial. This week, the September 11 Memorial Museum opened in New York City, and the Ground Zero Cross is at the center of an underground gallery along with other monumental artifacts that survived the attacks.
Why is the symbol of the cross so powerful?
