Joan has been an avid reader for as long as she can remember. She reads all kinds of books, including women’s fiction, mysteries, biography, and memoir. Her passion as a reader lies closer to literary writing with a commercial bent. Joan says The Clock Strikes Midnight is exactly the kind of book she loves to read.
“I write about characters who remind me of myself at times and my sister at times, but never fully so. My stories are told from a woman’s point of view. Characters drive my writing and my reading.”
Having grown up in the South with a mother from Westchester County New York, Joan has a unique take on blending the southern traditions with the eye of a northerner. She spent most of her childhood in North Carolina and now resides in Georgia.
This week we're talking once again to Canadian author, artist, and martial arts expert, Stefan Verstappen. Stefan has a professional background in communications and business management and has travelled extensively throughout East Asia, where he has studied oriental art, culture and Kung Fu.
Stefan is the author of 'The art of urban survival' from which the viral YouTube video documentary 'Defense Against the Psychopath' was taken.
Stedan has recently produced another video on the topic of historical cycles of human civilization and the manner in which they appear to repeat. In his video, Stefan makes the case that we are currently in the final stage of our cycle of history, defined, like all others, by widespread chaos. Historically, only small groups of people survived the periods of destruction that defined the end of a cycle, and they did so by forming themselves into tight-knit communities with specific organizational structures.

I am getting really angry about these kinds of stories. i don't know how the kid behaved but he was a kid. Cops can't be gun happy. It's really sad and tragic. I have a 1/2 Black child who is six ft 2. He does not play with guns or have fake guns., he is just a student who works at McDonalds at age 16. I am pissed off in general that this shit happens in America. The kid might as well have lived in Jerusalem or Beruit. His life is worth nothing to law enforcement. Whether somebody is to blame and the kid was reckless or not, its still a major disappointment. I don't foresee the future of America getting any better.

Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in science.
Joshua Wolf Shenk uses science, fascinating true stories of creative partnerships, and historical evidence to dispel the myth of the lone genius and show that creativity is not the work of an individual mind. It is, in fact, a social activity, and two people, working together, are truly "greater than the sum of their parts." Join us tonight to find out what it takes to be a creative partner -- and in turn, how to be far more than you can be alone.
Shenk's book we'll be discussing is Powers Of Two: Finding the Essence of Innovation in Creative Pairs.
Previously, he was the author of Lincoln's Melancholy, a New York Times Notable Book. Join me and all my fascinating guests every Sunday, 7-8 p.m. PT, 10-11 p.m. ET, at blogtalkradio.com/amyalkon or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher.

They’ve rewritten history to fit their own needs. The Bible has not been rewritten yet. Using the Bible as an anchoring point, we can go to ancient histories and history books written in the 1800’s to sleuth out facts that have been ignored or deleted by the so-called scholars of the past century.
Our research will bring to light facts and evidence that will support the Bible and provide you with a better understanding of God’s PLAN for Israel, the real Israel and not the modified and politicized Israel of today.
Join Allen Stein in this multipart study of the History of the Israel of the Bible. This Program is Part II.

New Beginnings Radio is a gathering place. It's a gathering place of faith, faith in Jesus Christ. It's a simple, down to earth broadcast where we share about Jesus and the Kingdom of God, 'on earth as it is in heaven'. It's an informal, come-as-you-are format. Everyone is welcome! We have no agenda, no criteria to meet. We're not trying to build anything or to promote Benjamin. It is truly about Jesus and the kingdom. Our world is going through massive changes. A way of life is passing away. On this broadcast we come together to discuss these changes bearing in mind first and foremost, that God is in control of all things. We recognize, that right in the middle of everything that is going on, He is bringing about a 'new heavens and a new earth'. He is also establishing the Kingdom, His Kingdom, in the earth. Knowing this gives us great hope, and that is the heart of this broadcast!
