    Levites Exempted (Numbers 1:47-54)

    in Christianity

    The Levites, however, were not numbered among them by their fathers’ tribe. For the Lord had spoken to Moses, saying, “Only the tribe of Levi you shall not number, nor shall you take their census among the sons of Israel. But you shall appoint the Levites over the tabernacle of the testimony, and over all its furnishings and over all that belongs to it. They shall carry the tabernacle and all its furnishings, and they shall take care of it; they shall also camp around the tabernacle. So when the tabernacle is to set out, the Levites shall take it down; and when the tabernacle encamps, the Levites shall set it up.

    But the layman who comes near shall be put to death. The sons of Israel shall camp, each man by his own camp, and each man by his own standard, according to their armies. But the Levites shall camp around the tabernacle of the testimony, so that there will be no wrath on the congregation of the sons of Israel. So the Levites shall keep charge of the tabernacle of the testimony.” Thus the sons of Israel did; according to all which the Lord had commanded Moses, so they did.

    The View Up Here- The New Era begins with the new Cabinet

    in Politics

    By the time this show airs, the grand ceremony will be over. Canada will know who is in the first Liberal Cabinet of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The buildup has been a novelty of sorts due to the change in power. A bigger numerical majority in the House of Commons than the one it replaced. Members from every province and territory. Pledges of gender parity and regional representation. A whopping 150 rookies out of 184 MP's. How will the promise of a smaller Cabinet actually play out compared to the bloated reward/threat system we have supposedly done away with.

    So many promises, so little time. Senate. Surveillance. Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women. Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Scuttling of the F-35 disaster. Trans-Pacific Partnership. Citizenship. Refugees. International reputation. Climate change. Employment Insurance. Long-form census. Scientific freedom. Democratic and electoral reform. Retirement age rollback to 65. Veterans Affairs. Marijuana.

    We will look at who made the cut as Ministers and what they now face to deliver what was sold as the Liberal platform. Tune in, join the chat, call in and input on the "new" Canadian future.

  • The Cosandra Calloway Show with Luenell & Toni Ann Semple

    in Entertainment

    Luenell is a force of nature. This talented comedienne, actress and singer, was born in Tollette, Arkansas, a town whose population barely registers with the U.S. census. At the tender age of 10, she caught the acting bug after seeing the plays South Pacific and Ain’t S’posed to Die a Natural Death. She enrolled in theatre classes at the grade school level and continued to study through college and cut her teeth at the Oakland Ensemble Theatre. More info at http://www.heyluenell.com 


    Toni Ann Semple is a sensational vocalist and musician whose music is innovative and refreshing. Her audiences experience irresistible and engaging aural dynamics that move and enamor them. Toni Ann’s music is the pure and unadulterated essence of her soul that she unselfishly and vigorously shares with the world to groove, uplift, heal, and encourage all whom receive it.  More info at http://www.toniannsemple.net

    "Men Talk Monday" Why We Still Don't See Working Men as Fathers

    in Family

    While mothers will likely get much of the attention for their flood into the workplace and the barriers they still face, fathers will at least partially share the spotlight. This comes after a few smaller meetings, including one on working fathers specifically. Fathers, on the other hand, are a sure bet. While women with children make less than childless ones, fathers actually make more than men without kids. We still don’t see men as children’s caregivers, inside or outside of the home. Even the government has a problem with this: The Census counts mothers as the “designated parent” no matter what the actual family situation may be and only counts dad’s care if mom is gone.  Fathers increasingly want to be fathers. Pew found 46 percent of fathers felt that they don’t spend enough time with their kids, compared to less than a quarter of mothers. They are equally stressed about balancing their work and their families. Two-thirds of fathers in a 2011 survey wanted to split childcare duties with their spouse.

    And yet of those same fathers, two-thirds admitted that their wives provided more care. The reality is that no one can really do enough in either arena, so everyone is making a choice. It’s just that the choices are different depending on the gender. So how can we give men what they want and let them be parents as well as workers?
