    Social Media's Impact on Literacy Live Panel Discussion from St. George Book Fe

    in Entertainment

    The St. George Book Festival is celebrating its 10th Anniversary.

    As part of this year's activities, the St. George Book Festival has asked its community one very important questions many readers, teachers and libraries have asked, "What is Social Media’s Impact on Literacy?"

    The St. George Book Festival will be airing live here on BlogTalkRadio's featured World of Ink Network on Wednesday, October 21, 2015, starting at 5 pm Pacific - 6 pm Mountain - 7 pm Centeral - 8 pm Eastern and will offer a free community forum on “Social Media’s Impact on Literacy.”

    The National Assessment of Adult Literacy defines literacy as "using printed and written information to function in society, to achieve one’s goals, and to develop one’s knowledge and potential."  The illiteracy skill level is based on a fourth-grade level. The reason for the reference to the fourth-grade level mentioned above is that in nearly all U.S. schools, the only reading taught after the fourth grade is remedial reading. If that is all they can read, however, they are functionally illiterate. This means about 23% of the national U.S. population falls under the category functionally illterate.

    The discussion will take place at DXATC, 610 S. Airport Road in St. George at 6 pm Moutain fon October 21, 2015 for those who live in the area. Panel members include Lenore Madden, Casie Forbes, Stace Hall, Kristy Pike, and students of DSU. This discussion will tackle the expanding role in Social Media on literacy.

                            For more information on these and other events associated with the 10th Annual St. George Book Festival, please go to www.stgeorgebookfestival.org

After thousands of hours of research and personal observation, and diving into diverse fields like psychology, nutrition, and even quantum physics, they discovered the “science of popularity.” ThePopularMan.com

    How the Rockets pulled off one of the greatest playoff comebacks ever

    in Basketball

    With 14 minutes left, Game 6 felt just like the two in Los Angeles before it. The Rockets were close at the half, trailing by just two, but found themselves again blitzed in the third quarter, with the Clippers pushing the 64-62 edge to 89-70.

    In the prior two games, the Rockets folded and lost by 25+ points. This time? They answered with a stunning 49-18 counter-punch to close the game and tie the series, sending it back to Houston for a decisive Game 7.

    The wildest part? MVP runner-up James Harden wasn't even playing, making it one of the more improbable and remarkable in-game turnarounds in NBA playoff history.

    Our Ben DuBose is joined by Josh Reese of CBS Radio in Houston (Sports Radio 610) and the Red & Orange Report podcast to dissect just how it went down.

    Topics explored:

    The brilliance of Kevin McHale's in-game adjustments
    Why inserting Josh Smith for Terrence Jones as a starter helped both players
    The importance of Dwight Howard dominating DeAndre Jordan on the glass
    The sudden disappearance of the Clippers' bench
    Should Houston fans be concerned about Harden's p

    PODCAST: What's wrong with the Rockets?

    in Basketball

    The Rockets haven't lost three straight games all year. But if they're going to keep that streak alive in Tuesday's Game 5 -- and with it, their season -- they're going to have to overcome a tidal wave of momentum in favor of the Clippers.

    It's not just that the Clippers lead the series, 3-1. It's that they're doing it in dominating fashion. In their weekend romps, the Clippers became the first team since the 2001 Lakers to win back-to-back games in a playoff series by at least 25 points.

    Our Ben DuBose is joined by Josh Reese of CBS Radio in Houston (Sports Radio 610) on the Red & Orange Report podcast to break down how the Clippers have done it, starting with an MVP performance from Blake Griffin. They also examine where things have gone wrong for the Rockets, like being torched by an opposing power forward for a second consecutive postseason. Is Terrence Jones on the hot seat, and might things be different if Donatas Motiejunas were healthy?

    Other topics explored:

    Was Chris Paul's absence a blessing in disguise for the Clippers, given the added minutes and confidence it gave to Austin Rivers?
    With James Harden only taking 12 shots in Game 4 despite shooting well on the series (45 percent on FGs, 44 percent on three-point attempts), should he be more aggressive and shoot more?
    Is Hack-a-DeAndre Jordan a worthwhile strategy for the Rockets, considering that it negates transition?
    Does poor play in this series by Corey Brewer and Josh Smith impact Houston's likelihood of re-signing them this summer?

    Take a listen.

    The Prayer Motivator Minute #610

    in Christianity

    Robert Velarde said: "Prayer can make a profound difference in our world. But it is up to us to offer our prayers humbly and regularly."

    This is Daniel Whyte III with the Prayer Motivator Minute #610 here to remind you that there is still great power in prayer to God Almighty.

    Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Psalm 39:12 which reads: "Hear my prayer, O Lord, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were." 

    Our prayer motivator quote today is from J. Stuart Holden. He said: "Here is the secret of prevailing prayer, to pray under a direct inspiration of the Holy Spirit, whose petitions for us and through us are always according to the Divine purpose, and hence certain of answer. 'Praying in the Holy Ghost' is but co-operating with the will of God, and such prayer is always victorious. How many Christians there are who cannot pray, and who seek by effort, resolve, joining prayer circles, etc., to cultivate in themselves the 'holy art of intercession,' and all to no purpose. Here for them and for all is the only secret of a real prayer life—“Be filled with the Spirit,” who is 'the Spirit of grace and supplication.'"

    Praying With Purpose, Part 16 (TPMD Bus 2 - #610)

    in Christianity

    TODAY'S POEM: "Pray When the Morn is Breaking" by Jane C. Simpson.

    Today, we are completing David’s prayer found in 1 Chronicles 17:18-27 which reads.

    Our featured prayer motivator quote is from Samuel Chadwick. He said: "There is no power like that of prevailing prayer, of Abraham pleading for Sodom, Jacob wrestling in the stillness of the night, Moses standing in the breach, Hannah intoxicated with sorrow, David heartbroken with remorse and grief, Jesus in sweat of blood. Add to this list from the records of the church your personal observation and experience, and always there is the cost of passion unto blood. Such prayer prevails. It turns ordinary mortals into men of power. It brings power. It brings fire. It brings rain. It brings life. It brings God." 

    My personal encouragement for you today is this: A Christian cannot have a victorious, overcoming, and vibrant life without prayer. Of course, there are other important things a Christian needs as well such as the Word of God, the local church, and fellowship with other believers. But if we are to be successful in all of these areas, we must undergird these things with prayer. 

    Our prayer motivator devotional today is titled "THE POSSIBILITIES OF TRUE PRAYER" part 2 from the book, "Purpose in Prayer" by E.M. Bounds.

    It is not an easy thing to pray. Back of the praying there must lie all the conditions of prayer. These conditions are possible, but they are not to be seized on in a moment by the prayerless. Present they always may be to the faithful and holy, but cannot exist in nor be met by a frivolous, negligent, laggard spirit. Prayer does not stand alone. It is not an isolated performance...
