Figure skating is notoriously rife with drama and intrigue. Since its introduction to the Winter Olympics in 1924, figure skating has been one of the most popular, yet controversial competitions.
For the first time in the 106 years since the sport was introduced, figure skating will be a team event at the Sochi Games. In addition to their individual events, athletes from 10 countries will compete against each other as a squad, combining their efforts for a shot at a group medal in addition to individual crowns.
As Olympic events go, this one has the intrigue and secrecy of a Cold War spy novel. Countries have been guarding their playbooks like their national secrets for good reason.
Most recently Amanda won Battle of the Blades with retired NHLer and skating partner Scott Thornton.Amanda joins us to chat about her path to the Olympics and what it means to compete and sacrifice to get to the the top level of amateur sport in the world of figure skating.

Everyone loves figure skating!
“Every winter, millions of Canadians take to the ice, indoors and outdoors, in search of fun and fitness," says Skate Canada, the governing body for the national sport.
In our country, you'll see many figure skating events on television throughout the year - Skate Canada, Canadian championships, world championships, and more. Canadians Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir stole the limelight at the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010 and Canada’s strength as a figure skating nation is a proven result of not only this type of exceptional talent.
A group of skaters and coaches who have been willing to take risks and be part of the continuous re-definition of the sport continue to extend our expectation of what is possible.
Join the conversation as we pull back the curtain on The Inside Edge of Figure Skating with Elvis Stojko and PJ Kwong, CBC Figure Skating Correspondent and author of “Taking The Ice”.
• Is the figure skating world in Canada thriving?
• Will be able to maintain our highest level of world class competitors?
• Internal rivalry, between skaters, has gained bad press for the sport.
• Has controversial judging tainted competition?
• Will the respect for the sport ever return?

The mark of the Beast is known, the Bible tells us clearly what it is. The number of the Beast is an identification of a worldwide system of deception. Once you know what the mark of the Beast is, you will be able to figure out what or who the Beast is and the false prophet who assists and supports the system.
The Creator has a mark as well, identification for the people who belong to Him.
Jesus Christ of Nazareth clearly tells us in the gospel of Revelation that Satan has deceived the whole world; it is the same super powerful being who entered the Garden of Eden and through its deception stole ownership of this earth from our first parents.
Tune into to The Truth and learn what the mark of the Beast is and how you can avoid having it. Those who have the mark of the Beast will be destroyed when this new world order system is smashed to pieces by Jesus when He comes to rule the world with a loving rod of iron.

Believe it or not, this week is our 250th Episode of Midrats.
In celebration, we're clearing the intellectual table, going to open the mic and see where it takes us.
From Kobane, to Coastal Defense, to Ebola and everything in between and sideways that's been in the national security news as of late, plus whatever else breaks above the ambient noise - we'll be covering it.
As with all Midrats Free For Alls, we are also opening the phone lines for our regular listeners who want to throw a topic our way.
Come join us Sunday as we try to figure out how we got to 250.
Laura Brown-Lavoie is a spoken word poet from Providence, Rhode Island. A newcomer to the national slam scene, she was the 2011 Providence Grand Slam Champion and had the opportunity to perform on Finals stage at the National Poetry Slam in Boston, where she and her Providence teammates took third place.
When she isn’t writing, Laura works as an urban farmer, growing food on two vacant lots in Providence. While much of her poetry is inspired by her interactions with the urban natural environment, she also writes to interrogate the use of language in politics and the mainstream media, and, of course, to figure out where the she is in all of this.
She is committed to spoken word performance as a means of fostering creative community in a culture where too often people are isolated from one another in favor of glowing screens. Her mom is a high school English teacher, and her dad is a storyteller, and she takes any opportunity she can to be in rooms full of people where beautiful things are being said out loud. Oh, and Laura effin’ loves public librry.

Let's figure it out in the Wine Cellar.
Really, if 7th Heaven's Rev. Eric Camden can be a child molester, is nothing sacred? Well, no. Not when it comes to the abuse of children.
In light of the recent allegations and investigations into actor Stephen Collins (TV's Rev. Camden) for molesting children, it's time to take another look at just who molesters are, how they operate, hot to recognize them, and how to help kids be safe. We also need to reexamine what we can do about this terrible problem. Did you know a 2004 U.S. Department of Education report said nearly 10 % of students have sexual contact with school employees before they graduate? That report also stated that abuse happens when no one is paying attention to the issue.
So let's pay attention.
Storm is a writer and poet. She is a survivor and advocate for child abuse victims and has turned that into a personal campaign to speak out against the unspeakable. She wants to help children get out of abusive situations by personally speaking about what she's been through.
Daphne Young, Vice President of Communications and PreventionEducation for Childhelp can halp us figure it all out. Childhelp is America's longest running and largets national nonprofit meeting the physical, emotional, educational and spiritual needs of abused and neglected children. The organization focuses on advocacy, prevention, treatment, and community outreach. She has developed a youth safety curriculum for young athletes with Olympic Consultants, the Foundation for Glogal Sports Development called Childhelp: Speak Up, Be Safe for Athletes.
Storm and Daphne will give us answers, explain what child molestation really is, and offer strategies and resources for all of us.
