    The King of DC Media (KODCM), Willam Powell, welcomes actor extraordinaire Adiyb Muhammad, who the KODCM has dubbed "The Theater Warrior", back to the Inside Acting Radio Show to talk about his white hot career.


    Read just a sliver of what he's been doing, in his own words:


    As a working actor,yes I am performing in "Love Is Still Blind" May 2nd/ Dry Bones June 27th and The Piano Lesson July 31st & August 1st stage plays locally in the DMV. By Play wrights Damon Sanders/Ivy Hawkins and August Wilson. I feel truly blessed because as an actor when I read these parts they all offered different and unique opportunities to create very different characters. I love film but my first love is truly theater it makes you delve deep into your skills on a very in-depth level. No retakes, no editing just raw unadulterated work. Memorization of lines a must and character development an absolute necessity and intense commitment to be successful. 10 years and counting!!! I LOVE THIS BUSINESS, I"LL BE IN IT TILL I'M LAYED TO REST! Thank you heavenly father for allowing me to discover this part of me!!! JUST A THOUGHT!!!

    power of perception writers with Dede Faltot Rittman

    in Spirituality

    Dede Faltot Rittman graduated from Edinboro University in 1974 with a bachelor’s degree in secondary English and attended the University of Pittsburgh for post-graduate credits. After two years at Penn Hills, she began teaching English and Theater in the North Allegheny School District, a position she held for thirty-five years. For thirty-two of those years, Dede worked with underachieving students and those with special meeds.


     


    After thirty-seven years of teaching, Dede Rittman has something to say to those entering the profession.


    Students do judge you by your appearance—and appearance includes everything from your perfume to how much “bling” is your thing.


    Students come to school with many problems, and the role of “teacher” requires more than just knowing subject matter.


    Students will try harder when they believe the teacher “likes” them. Show students that you are a leasant person, but remember that you are the teacher, not their friend.


    Students share qualities of a “good” and a “not so good” teacher with Dede, and she shares their list with you – a must-see for new teachers!


    Students have successes and failures and real feelings. To be a good teacher, remember that you are not teaching a subject, you are teaching human beings.

    The Whispering Swarm, by Michael Moorcock

    in Radio

    On April 16th, 2015 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will review the new semi-biographical novel by fantasy grandmaster Michael Moorcock "The Whispering Swarm." This remarkable book should be of special interest to magicians and Hermetic students. Moorcock is the modern heir to the mantles of J.R.R. Tolkien, and Robert E.Howard. His fiction is deeply magical and steeped in Hermetic lore. The Whispering Swarm is somewhat experimental. His protagonist is himself and he tells his life story up to his passage from adolesence into adulthood through the entrance into a secret enclave in the multiverse, inhabited by historical and fictional characters he has read about. Raised in London during and after WWll, he discovers an ancient hidden medieval village called the Alsacia, or The Sanctuary, inhabited by magical monks in an old Abbey, a tavern full of swashbuckling cavaliers, including the Musketeers from Dumas and a glamorous Hughwaywoman called Molly Midnight. He also lives in the real world, having a wife and children and a job as an editor, but is driven to escape into The Sanctuary by the tumult of Whispering voices in his head (the Swarm). Most importantly it explores Moorcock's two warring personalities in emotional spiritual and political conflict. He is a romantic at heart and an agnostic socialist in intellect -- so he fights to save King Charles from Cromwell's Ax because his cavalier heroes need his abilities to walk between the worlds. One wonders all through the book, just how much of the fantasy is real, or a metaphor for reality. So, if you want to visit an adult's Land of Oz then follow us through the London fog to the hidden gates of the Sanctuary and we'll find the Swan with Two Necks tavern for a shant of ale and an hour of High Magical Adventure.

    A Dark Skinned Women's Revenge - An interview with Rashida Marie Strober

    in Women

    The issue of colorism in the black diaspora is as old as slavery and colonialism itself. Any discussion of the topic brings up many painful incidents of childhood and every black person seems to have a story to tell about how it has affected their lives in some way. The various issues that exist around skin shade have affected the way that black people view themselves and each other. Of particular interest is the effect and impact that colorism has had on dark skinned black women. Rashida Marie Strober is taking on the task of tackling the issue and speaking out against the discrimination that dark skinned women have faced and bringing to the forefront the impact it has had on their well being emotionally and psychologically. Join us for a lively discussion of her new book and the topic of colorism in the black community. CALL IN WITH QUESTIONS: 347.215.8933

    Join Cherise, George and Scott for DSMA Live with Scott Benner, diabetes advocate, podcaster and storyteller. 


     


    About Scott Benner


    I'm a stay-at-home dad, a husband, a storyteller, a type I diabetes advocate and an author. I love my family, baseball and sitting in a dark movie theater with my wife Kelly and our children, Cole and Arden.


    I've always loved to tell stories but I didn't begin to put the words I felt into written form until I started my blog 'Arden's Day' on August 16, 2007. Five years later I was writing my first book, "Life Is Short, Laundry Is Eternal'. 


    'Arden's Day' is a look at my daughter's life with type I diabetes from my perspective. A raw, honest reflection of what life is like when you live everyday with a chronic illness. Type I diabetes advocacy has been my passion since I learned how powerful and renewing sharing and community can be to people that live with a chronic illness.


    'Life Is Short, Laundry Is Eternal' is my attempt to bring both men and women a look at the other side of their relationship. I began a new life as a stay-at-home dad in 2000 after our first child was born and my experiences have shown me aspects of family life that I never imagined existed.

    2015, I Am Virgin Queen Sisters Strengthening Sisters Retreat

    in Spirituality

    ABOUT SISTERS STRENGTHENING SISTERS - (retreat info can be found at www.sistersstrengtheningsisters.com)


    International Sisters Strengthening Sisters was birthed in 2005 by Pastor Debra Fox and the women’s ministry of the Alpha Generation Ministries of Gulfport, MS.  Once the ministry started to reach out into their local community it became even clearer that the need to help the less fortunate was critical.  By 2009, Pastor Debra Fox and Sisters Strengthening Sisters opened the doors to Sisters Strengthening Sisters Shelter to help combat homelessness and hunger to families in the local community.  This shelter is still operating and servicing the community.  This too was part of the vision but it wasn’t the masterpiece.


    In 2010, Pastor Fox saw the potential of her ministers growth and the need of  prayer and encouragement for women both near and far.  It was at that instant she decided to use Facebook as more then just a social site, but as a way to carry out another part of her vision.  Sisters Strengthening Sisters Facebook group was then created to unite women from all different walks of life to join on one accord and glorify the name of the Lord.  The growing Sisterhood has grown to be 30,000 member international group, the expectancy of sister ship.  Our group is known for praying, encouraging and uplifting each other in the name of the Lord.


    Yes, that part of the vision is now in effect.  Due to the response from an abundance of requests from women in other countries Sisters Strengthening Sisters is now International Sisters Strengthening Sisters, an international sisterhood ministry.
