SORT BY Relevancy
As America becomes more complex, fewer Americans understand how things really work.
Too much is taken for granted. Too much is taken on faith.
In govenrment, decisions now seem based more on superstitions than grounded reality. But this worrisome trend isn't confined to government alone.
Societal and economic decay, even collapse may well be logical results of the course being plotted.
Join Don and Doug at 1:00pm EST on Friday, November 8th, as we connect some dots and explore our increasingly "cargo cult" America.

In "The Ballad of Anthony Young" edition, Jeffrey and Greg and Chris and Rob(!!!) all sit down to discuss their Amazin' Avenue Offseason Plans. Greg likes Michael Saunders, Jeffrey is banking of Aaron Hicks, Rob likes Cargo (shockednotshocked) and Chris opts to totally cheat. With that dispatched, we head to your e-mails on TRAIDS, guys vs. dudes, and a whole bunch of shortstops, complete with the debut of the promised 2014-15 update of Shortstop Avenue Audio. Finally, Jeffrey tries to have a topical pop culture discussion about "Too Many Cooks," but that goes nowhere.
Okay, so let's face it. Geekdom is at an all time high. What used to be an incredibly small counter culture of renegade gamers with high IQ's and low public acceptance which rallied in basements and shared their dreams of conquest, power and legendary deeds, have now become a target marketshare for numerous corporations. In less just about thirty years we have gone from lonely to legion!!!
New conventions are appearing every year and most of the already established ones are expanding. Geeks are pouring into every city in their cargo shorts, graphic Tee's, back packs and rule books in hand in record numbers. Cosplayers are showing up in every possible persona from the Flintstones all the way to dead alaskan painter Bob Ross. Everywhere you look, more and more Geeks are crawling from there preverbial holes and joining the world at large.
But at what cost? We are actually becoming such a large group that we are beginning to splinter into sub groups again and those groups are at times finding it hard to accept and share the spot light. Steampunkers, Tabletop War Gammers, Cardies, Boardies, Consolers, Cosplayers, RPG'ers, LARP'ers, MMO'ers, Trekkies, Jedi's, Vamps, Tramps and a 1000 others... when is to much to much and what does it mean to market a game or product to these numerous and varied groups. Tonight on the Wolf's Den we look at the expanding world of Geek and how much further we think it can go before we see it shatter and splinter into seperate cons, gatherings and events.
Usualmente vemos como las relaciones personales afectan nuestra salud, pero poco se habla de cómo la salud puede afectar las relaciones amorososas.
La salud es el don mas preciado. Carecer de ella significa llevar una vida de dolencias, un calvario sanitario que sólo quien lo ha padecido o padece sabe lo dañino y costoso que es. Y por muy buena salud que se tenga en la juventud, ésta se pierde inexorablemente con el tiempo. Aparecen los achaques, las dolencias, los dolores que merman la capacidad para disfrutar de la vida.
La cosa está clara: el organismo humano sufre desgastes con el tiempo, como todo en la naturaleza. Hay enfermedades que se heredan. Por todo ello, debemos ser mas concientes y responsables de nuestra salud y sobretodo de como nos alimentamos.
¿Estas dispuesto a hacerte cargo y responsabilizarte por la salud de tu pareja?
¿Hasta que punto las enfermedades como la diabetes, problemas epaticos, y otros, pueden afectar tus relaciones amorosas?
¿Qué puede pasar en 15 años con una pareja que sufra desde joven de presion arterial alta, y no se la controle?

It is estimated that combined losses suffered by the trucking industry, insurance companies, and the railroads, surpasses $10 BILLION in the United States annually.

Returning guest Judy Helm Wright (AKA Auntie Artichoke) will talk about childcare issue—one of concerns many mompreneurs have, especially for some of us who still have very young kids.
Juggling a mom-biz while tending to the needs of our children is the ultimate balancing act we all need to perform. And for most of us who have our business office at home, finding that previous and quiet time to tackle business-related tasks can be a challenge with kids around.
So what solution do we have? Childcare…but not just any kind of childcare.
