Patrick Felty is the Regional Director for Central and South Texas (Alamo Region) for FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). As we kickoff the 2015 Robotics season, we sit down with Patrick to talk about the newest robotics competition.
What is FIRST?
FIRST®(For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) hosts the large-scale South Texas regional robotics competition for High School students. Accomplished inventor Dean Kamen founded FIRST in 1989 to inspire an appreciation of science and technology in young people. The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC®) is an annual competition that challenges high-school students – working alongside professional Mentors – to design and build a robot of their own, and compete in a ‘ Sport for the Mind™’ that measures the effectiveness of each robot, the power of teamwork and collaboration, and Gracious Professionalism™. Students build and program their own robots against a field of competitors and experience the excitement of science, engineering, technology and innovation. http://www.usfirst.org.
As we continue on with this robotics season one of the interviews I wanted to make sure to capture was really more of an update show. Last year I spoke with John Reed, who told the story of the growth of FIRST robotics in Del Rio, TX which is a small Texas border town. The reason I wanted to bring John back on the show was because between this year and last year there has been what I’ll call an explosion in the amount of interest and robotics teams along the border. I like to think of John who is a teacher and robotics coach at Del Rio Middle School as the spark that has lit the fuse of this new growth.

As we continue on with this robotics season the next person on the list of must-have interviews is Daniel Sherrill who is the Community Affairs Specialist at Rackspace. I like to think of Daniel as the tip of the spear when it comes to Rackspace’s community outreach.
Daniel shares the vision Rackspace has through their community involvement with Alamo FIRST and other community projects. He also discusses the value in being an active part of FIRST Robotics.

Join me LIVE TONIGHT @ 8 P.M. on Blogtalk Radio, Alamo Speaks, On Air Call in Number (657) 383-1531Andre Bean Sr. aka Simply Dre will be joining me in the Studio LIVE from Richmond,CA.The boundaries that define Gospel are constantly changing; traditionalists would say it is all about simple melodic beats and traditional words, but the new contemporary artists would say it can be anything as long as the true spirit of God in which it began remains.
Minister Andre Bean, Sr. aka Simply Dre has found a unique way to incorporate both styles to become one of the Bay Area's leading contemporary gospel artists. He is furnished with a great intellectual power, the anointing and knowledge of the word of God and the ability to touch those around him with song. Minister Andre Bean is on a mission to save the lost.
While having been blessed at an early age, Minister Bean aka Simply Dre began performing at family functions, local talent shows, weddings and various clubs. Through his vast networking abilities, these events have lead him to perform with such notarized secular artist as Master P, Dangerous Dame, Lil Ric, Rappin 4 Tay and a host of other rappers and singers.
Although the secular world afforded him many opportunities to perform, it was a strong calling of God on his life that made him realize that he had a much higher purpose. God revealed to him that he was given a special gift to reach the masses.
We will discuss The Richmond Steelers Youth Football and Cheer Teams and the challenges that persist in terms of raising outstanding young men and women in the confines of Richmond,CA. Richmond Steeler Alumni Family and Friends,Everyone talks about how bad the City is,However these young Brothers have done something very inspirational for the ENTIRE City of Richmond,CA. THEY NEED YOUR HELP,ANYTHING WILL HELP $1,5,10,20,50,100.. PLEASE CLICK THE LINK,, http://www.gofundme.com/gnj9zk My team the Richmond Steelers Cadets won a the Norcal Championship Saturday November 15, 2014. and they finished 11-1 in a very tough AYF Norcal Division 1 SuperConference. They deserve to go to Nationals in Florida, but the cost is too expensive for our organization to cover. The cost is about $20K, I'm asking for help to get this money together for our Babies to go participate!!! Coming from Richmond these kids don't get very many opportunities to leave the city let alone the state. So to be able to take them outside their element and let them experience something great would mean so much to them. This is an experience that they will have to treasure for the rest of their lives. So again I'm asking on behalf of my coaching staff, my parents, and my babies, PLEASE HELP! Let's support something positive and get these kids to Florida.
Thank you Coach Will!!!

Head Coach Cadets
Why rap is on trial: Prosecutors are using rap videos and lyrics as evidence in secret grand jury trials, chilling artistic speech and corrupting justice.Is life imitating art or is art imitating life?.Either way you look at it, Young Black and Latino Men will always be examined by the words or lyrics they speak.No other genre of music is examined as Rap music is.Most folks believe GANGSTA RAP lyrics speaks to spirits,However as Laz Tha Boy eluded Reagae,Rock,Country and Pop music lyrics define death damnation and destruction but has yet to se any artist get indicted for such claims.This is very good journalism it truly digs deep into the mindset of the artist and the judiciary system. According to Laz,Most jurors who never lived in a social economical deprived locale won't and don't understand how rappers assimilated characters to make songs..

In the documentary American Pimp, Fillmore estimates that, in his entire career as a pimp, he had over 9,000 prostitutes
