    Lawrence Ferrara, Director of the movie, "Power Erotic" Thurs, Apr 10, 9PM EST

    in Books

    Strength, power, dominance and masculinity; buzz words seen in the majority of gay male personal ads.


    This documentary explores how dominance and power influence gay male sexuality. Thought provoking and controversial, sometimes disturbing, yet brutally honest in its approach, this film dares to shatter illusions and raise complex issues regarding gay male sexuality.


    The director encounters 15 gay men whose sexuality revolves around power, dominance and control. The camera voyeuristically captures their sexual interactions providing insightful conversations, some of which are captured after actual sexual encounters allowing unusual access to the deeper, psychological aspects of sexuality.


    Filmmaker Lawrence Ferrara has been making films since the early 2000s.


    Born and living in Boston, he began classes at Boston Film & Video Foundation, which prompted him to write his first feature, A Stranger Within. The experience from that film was his version of “film school.” Multiple short films later, resulted in this current project; a documentary about gay male sexuality, a gritty, real-life exploration into the sex lives of gay men.

  • Lets Talk "C. Streetlights

    in Pop Culture

    Huffington Post Columnist Rachel Thompson and writer/critic Bennet Pomerantz host Lets Talk


     


    Tonight's guest Is "C. Streetlights


     Tea and Madness is a collection of narrative essays and poetry I've written over a period of time, about three years, in which I my life really fell apart in almost every possible. I would be dishonest if I said it had been perfect before, nobody's life is no matter how it looks, but man... even when I was pulling pieces together for this project I couldn't believe it was over.
    And at the same time, this horrible time is over! It's amazing! It doesn't mean I'm still not healing from all these experiences but the actual crisis chatter is over. 
    Ultimately, this is what is so important for other women to know. There are enough "self-help" books on the markets. They are useful and helpful and have their place. I want to celebrate the chaos and messiness that makes us human. Women are hard enough on themselves; we just need to accept that the water has to boil like a tempest before it can settle to the right temperature that brings out the flavor in tea leaves.

    A Constitutional Right to Dignity

    in Politics

    The closest the Supreme Court has come to embracing the anti-humiliation principle is through its use of the term “dignity.” This link should be intuitive—what, after all, is the opposite of “humiliation” but “dignity”? Ackerman recognizes this nexus, but his discussion of it is tantalizingly brief.26 He acknowledges that the link between human dignity and the anti-humiliation principle may be unfamiliar to American constitutional lawyers, given that, in contrast to other jurisdictions, our constitutional traditions are built around the concepts of equality and liberty.


    Warren was simply calling upon judges, and the rest of us, to make common-sense judgments about the prevailing meaning of social practices. One of the greatest legal thinkers of the era, Karl Llewellyn, persuasively argued that judges couldn’t decide the most humdrum case without relying on this capacity, which he famously called “situation-sense.”It was Louis Brandeis, not Thurgood Marshall, who first used social science to convince courts to consider the real-world impact of their doctrines. As early as 1908, the Supreme Court relied heavily on his famous “Brandeis Brief” in upholding maximum-hours laws for women. During the following decades, the law schools became centers of sociological and economic critique of the regnant legal formalism The Anti-Humiliation Principle and Same-Sex Marriage Kenji Yoshino

    BISHOP DR. LAWRENCE C. MWAMBA PRESENTS THE PITFALLS OF PROCRASTINATION

    in Radio

    Exodus 9: 27- 35  There are pitfalls in procrastination.  First and Far most, we will not  get things done on time

    Some of our projects will end up not being done at all.  We need to switch from Tomorrow to NOW.  Today is the day of your salvation, not tomorrow, like they say tomorrow may never come so whatever you want to do, DO IT NOW.


    Pharaoh was living in the midst of Frogs, he called fro Moses and Aaron to entreat God on his behalf so the frogs would be gone.  Moses asked hiom as to when he wanted the Frogs gone, he said TOMORROW !!  just give me one more day with the Frogs.  Important things in life need to be acted upon now.  This is the way to success,  Delay holds you back from your success.


    You need to act now on matters needing your immediate attention.  There things you need to hink through, such as marriage, the career ypou want to take in your life and where you want to live and settle.  These things you have to think throuigh them

    BISHOP DR. LAWRENCE MWAMBA PRESENTS THE DANGERS OF POSTPONEMENT, TOMORROW

    in Radio

    TOMORROW IS AN EASY WORD TO SAY AND A QUICK WAY TO AVOID TASKS, BUT THIS IS ALSO A TRICKY WAY OF STAYING BEHIND IN LIFE.


    EXODUS 8:1- 11.


    Vs. 8,  Then Pharaoh called for Moses amd Aaron, and said, entreat the LORD, that he may take away the frogs from me, and from my people, and I will let the people go, that they may do sacrifice unto the LORD.


    Vs.  9.  And Moses said unto Pharaoh,  Glory over me, when shall I entreat for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to destroy the frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may remain in the river only ?


    Vs.  10. And he said To morrow,  And he said be it according to thy Word:  that thou mayest know that there is none like unto the LORD our God.


    Vs.  11.  And the frogs shall depart from thee, and from thy houses, and from thy servants, and from thy people; they shall remain in the river only.

    Chew the Phat Kewl Khat: Peter Ferrara From Forbes On Welfare Reform!

    in Politics

    Can welfare reform end poverty in America? Peter Ferrara believes it can. Peter is a great article writer and a great contributer to Forbes! Peter has writen numerous articles about many different subjets of interest. Do not be surprised if he wakes you up to what welfare reform will mean to our country as a whole. Come listen to Peter Ferrara speak and answer questions that anyone may have about how our government spends over a trillion dollars a year on welfare! Call in and share your two cents on this issue. Call in at 1-347-677-1837.


    The passage of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) in 1996 changed the way the federal government finances cash welfare to low-income families. Instead of a matching grant, states receive a set amount of federal funds in the form of a block grant with no adjustments for inflation, caseload numbers, or state spending. Social assistance programs, however, tend to experience increased demand in recessions – more people require assistance from the government during difficult economic times. To meet increased demand, states have to increase spending, but recessions usually bring lower revenues to states, requiring some cuts to discretionary spending. Analysts were concerned that PRWORA’s change to a block grant would jeopardize social spending during times of state fiscal stress and cause states to disproportionately cut welfare spending during recession.
