SORT BY Relevancy
With the regular season finished, the NBA Playoffs are set to get under way on Saturday. The seeds are set, and we'll go through each first round matchup in both conferences. Outside of Golden State, does any team seem to have an easy matchup in its opening series? With how loaded the Western Conference is, it seems like anything is possible outside of the Warriors advancing.
In the Eastern Conference, the Atlanta Hawks may have the top spot, but the Cleveland Cavaliers have been the better team overall since the All Star break. Do the LeBron-led Cavs have a sweep in front of them in the Boston Celtics? Outside of Atlanta and Cleveland in the first round, like the West, anything seems possible.
Are you ready for Postseason Basketball? It's that time of year where the best of profesional Basketball is put on display for the next 2 months! I'll recap the regular season for you and give you my predictions on what's to come during this years NBA Postseason. I'll tell you one thing, expect this to be one of those years where there is no legitamate guarantee on a championship contender unlike previous years where the Miami Heat, L.A. Lakers, Boston Celtics, San Antonio Spurs... this is the turning point in the NBA, and I'll get into it during the show. Always feel free to call in and talk NBA Regular Season, Postseason, End of Season Awards, who do you think is winning MVP, 6th Man, most Improved player, etc. Always HERE ON THE HOOPER'S LOG!

The statements by many leading European heads of states--Angela Merkel, Nicholas Sarkozy, David Cameron, and others--has indicated that its not only common people, but even politicians in the establishment, who have to come to the conclusion that diversity and multiracialism has failed to work in the West.
Multiracial and multicultural societies have a long history of failing--Yugoslavia, the Soviet Union, Rwanda, Sudan, etc.. However, despite this long history of constant failure, the elite class of the West still continues to ply the general public of diversity's benefits.
In this segement of "America in Focus," we will examine diversity and multiracialism in more focus, with the candid and scholarly appraisal of it from a leading academic, among others, who has written and investigated the matter extensively. Dr. Tomislav Sunic has risked criticism and ostracism alike to have written several articles and books, where he takes aim at the credo and mantra of the Western elite class.
Today we will have Pastor Kamal explaining all about the Muslim world and the difference between Shias,Sunnies, Kurds and how the western world can understand Muslim culture . Also we will talk about ISIS and the war in the Middle East.

Olaf Tryggvesson - (born c. 964—died c. 1000), Viking king of Norway (995–c. 1000), much celebrated in Scandinavian literature, who made the first effective effort to Christianize Norway.
Already a Christian, Olaf was confirmed at Andover (in modern Hampshire) in 994, with Ethelred, with whom he had been reconciled, as his godfather. Learning of the growing revolt against the Norwegian king Haakon the Great, Olaf returned to Norway and was accepted as king on Haakon’s death in 995. He forcefully imposed Christianity on the areas under his control, the coast and the western islands, but had little influence elsewhere. By commissioning missionaries and baptizing visiting dignitaries, Olaf was able to introduce Christianity to the Shetland, Faroe, and Orkney islands and to Iceland and Greenland. (Christianity was adopted by the Icelandic parliament [Althing] about 1000).
Olaf met his death in the Battle of Svolder (c. 1000) at the hands of the Danish king Sweyn I, the Swedish king Olaf Skötkonung, and Eric the Norwegian, earl of Lade.

March To May’s Darren Guyaz (guitar, vocals, keyboard) and Beth Wesche (Celtic harp, vocals) first met in December 2012. By March 2013, the folk/indie/Americana duo had co-written their first two songs, by April they had a paid gig under their belts, and by May they had a name and shows booked out into the months ahead. Before settling in Seattle, Washington, where the act is now based, both Darren and Beth had traversed the Western Hemisphere separately. Darren migrated from the northern Appalachians to his birth-state of Montana, before heading on a South American adventure across the Andes mountain range, eventually falling in love with Seattle and the Pacific Northwest. The daughter of a US Foreign Service Officer, Beth also spent time in the Andes, as well as a host of US states on both coasts, before moving to Seattle, just blocks from where her beloved Celtic harp had been created, years before. The duo has drawn comparisons to acts like The Civil Wars, Damien Rice, the Swell Season, The Banner Days, and Robert Plant and Alison Krauss. The Water’s Edge is the debut release from March To May, out April 25th, 2015. For more information, visit www.marchtomay.com.
