    in Design

    This show will be all about laminate flooring from its inception til today. Its make-up, look, maintenance, cost and installation will be discussed...What room fits lamainte and how does it fit into a room's design? We will discuss that as well....but not before we finish last Monday's show, Creating a spa-like Experience in any bathroom. Due to technical issues, that show's reception was very choppy.

    The High Cost Of Sexual Sin

    in Christianity

    1 Cor 6:18-20   says Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.  We were bought with a price, and a costly one it was for all the sin of mankind. But its something about sexual sin that has a dangerous and disasterous effect to it. Simply put, its short term pleasure with long term consequences . This perhaps gives real meaning to the phrase "you reap what you sow".....this includes shame, guilt, pain and heart ache as well as a life time of regret. Truly a price we can't pay. The good news however is that Christ understands our struggle with the desires of the flesh and He loves us so much He seeks to save us from the bondage of sin. We must ask ourselves these and many other questions regarding sexual sin. Am I willing to lose my marriage with sexual sin? Am I ready to lose my family, friends to my own lustful cravings? How much am I willing to pay? And the master manipulator, Satan will never tell you the cost of this sin up front but he will be expecting you to pay in the end. Thanks be to God that we already have a way of escape through the cross, becuase Jesus already paid it all.

  • The Cost of Beauty: The Quest for Perfection

    in Medicine

    Let’s Face It, when most of us look in the mirror, we are not 100% happy with what we see. The human body is asymmetric so imperfections can be found and some are more apparent than others. As much as a person has the right to exercise to improve their physical look and health, the same applies with plastic surgery which can change a person’s entire outlook and well-being.


    According the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), in 2014:



    The top five cosmetic procedures were: breast augmentation, nose reshaping, liposuction, eyelid surgery and facelift
    Not in the topic five but of noticeable gains were male breast reduction, tummy tuck and dermabrasion
    Facial rejuvenation procedures experienced the most growth, as 2014 marked the highest number of botox injections to date: 6.7 million injections!
    Tumor removal is overwhelmingly the top reconstructive procedure performed every year with more than 4.4 million procedures in 2014


    So since everyone seems to be indulging one way or another, let’s talk about it! What is the true cost of perfection/beauty? Join Let’s Face w/Wil Strayhorn and Friends as we discuss the risks, dangers, costs, preventative measures and treatments available. We will talk to experts in the field as well as one patient that will discuss what happened when her plastic surgery procedures didn’t go as planned. Don’t missed this informative, thought provoking episode.

    The True Cost of Auto Dealer Marketing

    in Automotive

    Cars, just like everything else in the economy, have to be advertised to get sold. While a major chunk of the advertising would be done by the manufacturer of the car itself, auto dealers also have to put in their money to make sure that sales happen. Statistics from NADA (National Automobile Dealers Association) show that auto dealers spend over $7.2 billion dollars a year on advertising alone. For one car, that works out to an average of $621 through traditional advertising channels. This would include pay-per-click ads on the Internet, mailers, advertisements in the Yellow Pages as well as magazines, newspapers, and also advertisements in television and the radio. This is a lot of money to be spending on selling one car alone! While this may be a bitter truth for auto dealers to swallow, it is the true cost of auto dealer marketing if approached through traditional marketing channels. What is the alternative?


    By choosing non-traditional methods, auto dealers can significantly cut costs on their advertising revenues while increasing the number of cars sold. This can be achieved through internet marketing, which is what we, at Video Broadcast Services specialize in.


    We are video marketing experts and create advertising videos that are tailored to your own auto dealership and the brand and make of car that needs to be advertised. We ensure these videos are optimized for search engine tracking so they get to be seen by the people you want to target to buy vehicles at your dealership. We ensure these videos are targeted specifically at people at the locations in which your dealership is located.

  • wOMEN, PROTECTION ORDERS, AND THE REAL COST TO VICTIMS

    in Current Events

    WOMEN, PROTECTION ORDERS, AND THE REAL COSTS TO VICTIMS


    You’ve experienced violence from your partner, and everyone is telling you to get a protection order. Sounds right. The legal aid representative tells you how to proceed, it might help, and it doesn’t cost anything. Or does it? 


            Two researchers looked at whether getting a protection order had any impact on women’s earnings, and their findings may be a shock. And those findings covered six years of women’s earnings. Free to get a protection order? Think again.


    Melanie M. Hughes and Lisa D. Brush join us to look at their research and what it told them about women’s financial picture after getting a protection order. Hughes is Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Pittsburgh. She uses quantitative approaches to study women’s empowerment, often focusing on groups of women who are particularly marginalized. She is coauthor of Women, Politics, and Power: A Global Perspective (3rd Edition forthcoming with CQ Press). Her research has been published in journals such as American Sociological Review, American Political Science Review, and Social Forces. 


    Brush is Professor of Sociology and of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies at the University of Pittsburgh. Her first book was Gender and Governance (Rowman and Littlefield 2003), and her second book was Poverty, Battered Women, and Work in U.S. Public Policy (Oxford University Press 2011). Her current research looks at preventing adolescent relationship abuse and teen dating violence by engaging high school and middle school boys in coached athletic programs to change masculinities.
