  • United States Incarceration Industry Exposed/ Public Exploitation

    in Current Events

    Between October 30 and November 2,2015,  the United States will release 6,000 federal prisoners in accordance to new guidelines that went into effect November 2014 when an independent federal commission proposed shorter sentences for drug offenders. The result of the commission's decision that -just because someone was sentenced to a long prison term during the peak of the tough-on-crime era, he shouldn't automatically have to serve more time than he'd get if he were sentenced today. Of the 6000 to be released, only 4,000 are US citizens; about 2,000 of the prisoners scheduled for release are unauthorized immigrants, who will be detained and deported immediately after they're released from federal prison and legal immigrants

    In January 2014, the Commission indicated it  would reduce the drug sentencing guidelines and in March 2014, the Attorney General supported new guidelines being applied to on-going drug cases. As many as 46,000 prisoners are eligible to apply for shorter sentences under the change.

    In 2011, Congress reduced the sentencing disparity between "crack" and powder cocaine and the Sentencing Commission decided to allow current prisoners sentenced for crack cocaine to apply for shorter sentences. The United States incarcerates more people than any other country in the world. Ten thousand people are released from prison every week, most of them from state prisoners.  Typically, the federal government releases 55,000 prisoners a year. It will be interesting to see how the federal criminal justice system will help ex-inmates reenter society.

    Healing House Radio with Dr. Ayleen - Connecting The Dots To Wellness

    in Spirituality

    Most of us remember as children playing the game of "connect the dots".  we started at an origin point (usually at the dot marked "1") and, by going step by step, ended up with an finished image.  Imagine how hard it would have been if there were no numbers!  Could we start at any point and know where to go from there?  How predictable would our final outcome be without any clues to guide us along the way?  Most important, even if we know what the final picture is suppose to be, can we easily create is out of seemingly random dots? Today we'll be exploring how we can identify and then successfully connect the dots to our holistic wellness goals and achieve the final image that we hope for.

    I will be checking into the chatroom after the show for questions and comments.  If you 'd like to arrange a private consultation, you can reach me through my website at www.the-healing-house.com.

  • Sleeping With The Enemy

    in Christianity

    The flesh is something else. This is for the ones who have dipped behind the underwear of sexual temptations. Whether you are single or married, there probably have been times where you were in the wrong bed with the wrong person. If you are single or married, I know it is very hard to resist temptation. Job said in Job 31: 1, "I made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a young woman." How hard is that? Ladies, you're not off the hook. That verse applies to you too, with the exception that you should not look lustfully at a young man. The question was asked; "What is easier, to be married or to stay single?" Whatever your current status is, remember God is protecting you. We may fall and come short, but don't let that be a reason to KEEP sinning.

    Job 31: 1

    Galatians 5: 16

    Matther 5: 28

    James 1: 13-15

    in Health

    The University of Pennsylvania had tremendous results with a recent clinical trial using a CAR T cell treatment targeting CD19 for a myeloma patient. The results were so impressive that some wonder if they have been able to eliminate the myeloma stem cell clone for one patient who had relapsed 9 therapies and had a high-risk genetic feature. Learn more about this success and where UPENN is going next using CAR therapy with Dr. Adam Cohen, MD, Director of Myeloma Immunotherapy at the Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine at UPENN.

    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Indra Rios-Moore!

    in Music

    Where does one begin with a vocalist of this ability - and magnitude?  Are they the same in the case of Indra Rios-Moore? Born in the Lower East Side of New York, Indra's Puerto Rican Mom (who named her after a Hindu deity of sky and rain) would keep her indoors.  She was afraid of the dangers OUTSIDE.  So, little Indra would entertain herself with Mom's vast collection of Rock, Soul and Jazz - that latter, we're supposing, partly influenced by Indra's Dad.  Of African-American/Syrian descent - a Jazz bassist: Donald Moore.  

    Through her teen years, Indra found herself in fascinating evolution.  She had truly been fearful of being on stage - and she was working through that.  Also, because of the early promise that Indra had shown regarding her talent, she was studying classical arias - as well as American Folk songs at camp.  Combined with what was already immersed as inspiration as a child, her inner repertoire expanded.  

    At 26, she met Danish Jazz saxophonist, Benjamin Traerup.  A year later, they were married and living in Denmark.  And Indra's career began to take shape.  Benjamin and his transplanted wife formed a trio - with bassist, Thomas Sejthen.  The attention that they received translated into accolades, nominations, and then a gift: the Danish Music Award for Best Jazz Vocal.  Three albums later, Indra is continuing to receive praise.  Her voice and the Hybrid sensibility that has always been part of her soul couldn't have arrived at a better time.

    When you hear "Heartland", you will hear the echoes of the past (Motown and Pink Floyd).  You'll hear multiple languages.  And you'll feel Church.  As Indra has said: singing helps her move to an emotional place "where the mind doesn't interfere."  

    Our No Interference Chat Room awaits :)

    I.A.M.S.: Smarts and Darts of Being 100... Trust Your Intuition

    in Spirituality


    I keep my mind and thoughts off  “this world” and I place my entire focus on God within as the only Cause of my prosperity. I acknowledge the Inner presence as the only activity in my financial affairs, as the substance of all things visible. I place my faith in the Principle of Abundance in action within me,

    And as so,

    I trust and follow my feelings and thoughts without question or delay.

    Mission: Our mission for the I.A.M.S. Darts and Smarts of Being 100 iMinistries, is to be the presence of African-American Cultural Awareness. In which, we as people of culture, can become empowered, and succeed by gaining a wakefulness and understanding of the knowledge of our ancestors of antiquity.

    This gen has erected Great civilizations, but has been left out of our field of cognizance.

    At I.A.M.S., we encourage and support the demonstration and application of our ‘Deific Gifts’ in living fully from that perspective of ourselves on a daily bases. 

    With a realization of the art form of "Imaginal Conception=IC,” SolLuna Alchemy is an exploration of the mind, body, spirit in its fullest expression of its sovereign cogency! (Inspired by Doreen Virtue, "Healing With The Fairies"...John Randolph Price, "The 40 Day Prosperity: Abundance Book".)

    We feel it is necessary for I.A.M.S. to dream and think big; as well as develop a strong constitution of obtaining individual, as well as community aspirations, through study and practice of applying the proper mind set and feeling nature to all deeds.

  • It's A MInd Thing! Profess and Confess Your Faith!

    in Religion


    Faith is formed by words. Words produce actions that walk by faith. We walk by faith (2 Corinthians 5:7), proclaiming as if it were and not by sight, seeing it as it is. Faith says it is much more that what we see. Faith allows us to see like our Father sees it.....already done (Job 22:28)! When you speak decreeing, God said it shall be. Once you have spoken that word through faith it is activated. It is like turning on the engine of your car. Turning the key activates the car so you have access to were you want to go. Turn on you faith. Energize it! This is how you produce what you believe. Jesus said if you ask any thing my name, I will do it (John 14:14). So, how do we grow this kind of faith? The verse following says if you love me, keep my commandments! God wants His word to be glorified in us. Everything we do must point to glorifying God. Our request in prayer must line up with God’s perfect plans for our lives. God has the perfect plan (Jeremiah 29:11) for us and we must love Him enough to trust Him with our lives. God always wants to grow us. Have faith in God (Mark 11:22)! Faith comes by hearing the spoken word. When you read the word of God, read it out loud. Degree it over yourself. It only takes a little faith to remove a mountain. So, it is not the size of you faith that is measurable, but, the quality of your faith, without doubt and without ought. These two elements taint your grow in faith. You must believe to receive and you must forgive to receive!

    Milling About with Patrick Wilson & Paul Wilson

    in Entertainment

    Patrick Wilson and Paul Wilson join host Robin Milling to talk about their film Big Stone Gap. It was a labor of love for the Wilson brothers who's family roots are steeped in the small Virginian town. As children they recall spending summers with their grandparents who lived in Big Stone Gap. They tell Robin it was bittersweet to return to the place of their fondest childhood memories to shoot the movie, even staying in the house where they summered. Patrick says, 'It's really been the most personal project I've ever been a part of.' Paul tells Robin the story of how the Wilson family has been immortalized in the town with 'Wilson Road,' and the 'Paul J. Wilson' bridge named for their grandfather. In fact their grandparents were friends with the parents of writer/director Adrianna Trigiani who waited until Patrick was old enough to play the part, to make the film of her book.

    Patrick and Paul's collaboration goes beyond movies, as they also have a band called The Wilson Van along with their brother Mark playing renditions of Van Halen songs.

    Big Stone Gap also stars Ashley Judd, Whoopi Goldberg, Jane Krakowski, Jenna Elfman, and John Benjamin Hickey.

  • Talking in Circles: Dover Review; Theriault crash - SAFER Barriers

    in Sports

    On today's episode of Talking in Circles, we talk about the running of the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway. That was the end of the Challenger Round of the Chase, and four drivers have been eliminated. One of the drivers eliminated was Jimmie Johnson. We'll break down why the 48 team was eliminated, and talk about what the 12 that advanced need to do to not get eliminated in the next 3 races. 

    During the victory celebration for Kevin Harvick, his #4 Chevrolet got into the wall. This raised many eyebrows among his competitors because they're wondering why that car got into the wall and got damage? Were Kevin Harvick and the 4 team trying to cover up something illegal on the rearend of the car? Or was it just a coincidence. We'll talk about that. 

    Also, the number 78 Furniture Row Racing team was handed a P2 Penalty for something that took place during inspection, prior to Dover. We'll talk about how inconsistent that ruling is, and whether or not we think it was the right call by NASCAR.

    With the first round being over, we'll give our predictions of which 8 of the remaining 12 drivers will move on from the Contender Round, and into the Eliminator Round (round 3) of the Chase. The races in this round are Charlotte, Kansas and Talladega. Last season, this round eliminated some note worthy names including Dale Earnhardt, Jr. Will we see this happen again?

    One of the hot topics coming out of this weekend was the crash by NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver, Austin Theriault. Theriault, a driver for Brad Keselowski Racing, got tagged by his teammate, Tyler Reddick, and sent into the outside wall, head on. The wall that Theriault hit didn't have a SAFER Barrier, and his wreck resulted in a fracture in his lower back. We'll talk about why there still isn't SAFER barriers around these tracks...

    NFL Week 5: Batting Around Some Controversy; Great Coaching; Horrible Kickers

    in Football

    We heading to week 5 of the NFL season.  And of course, the season has had no controversy.

    We will bat around the latest.

    We'll talk about some horrible kicking.  And we’re not talking just extra points – but field goals.

    We will run down this week's big games. And we'll check out your fantasy.

    Joining me – as always -- is Eric Snyder, our NFL expert.  He is the author of a book on the Raiders and Raider Nation.  You can also hear him on the Power Hour on Fox Sports Radio 1340 in Vegas.

    Hello Boychick,

    Two big take-aways:

    First the controversial call.  The officials blew it on the field.  Instant replay needs to be changed.  And players need to know the rules.  When I saw the ball pushed out, I thought wait where is Dave Caspar?

    There were some other controversial calls.  I thought the fumble by Travis Kelcie was a weird call.  Do we allow for instant replay during the whole game and take it out of the hands of the coaches?

    Second big take-away from last week was the fabulous coaching. I look at Jeff Fisher who turned around the Rams to beat the Cardinals. I look at what Chuck Pagano did to get the Colts in the win column without Andrew Luck.  I look at Tom Coughlin who has the Giants back on track.  Or is this league just so competitive that each week it's a difficult to put two wins back to back?

    Third take-away: horrible kicking.  Josh Scobee has already been released by the Steelers.  One article said Scobee had made fun of Tiger’s chipping yips and karma came back to get him.  But is it the new extra point rule causing Field Golf problems?

    There were some other controversial calls.  I thought the fumble by Travis Kelcie was a weird call.
