    John Carver Show - David and Goliath (Malcolm Gladwell)

    in Self Help

    The biblical story of David and Goliath is probably the most well-known underdog story in the world.


    Goliath is a giant warrior who battles a much-smaller shepherd boy, David. David shoots him with a stone and a sling right between the eyes, Goliath topples over, and David kills him.


    David and Goliath is "a metaphor for improbable victories," Gladwell explained during a Ted Talk in September. "Why do we call David an underdog? Well, we call him an underdog because he's a kid, a little kid, and Goliath is this big, strong giant. We also call him an underdog because Goliath is an experienced warrior, and David is just a shepherd. But most importantly, we call him an underdog because Goliath is outfitted with all of this modern weaponry, this glittering coat of armor and a sword and a javelin and a spear, and all David has is this sling."


    The first mistake history has made when retelling the tale of David and Goliath is to assume that David was a helpless boy who only had a wimpy slingshot to protect himself, Gladwell said.


    That's because there were three types of warriors in ancient times: people who fought with slings and archery (David), foot soldiers who were good at up-close combat with swords (Goliath), and people on horseback.


    Goliath was a foot soldier; David was a slinger. When put this way, and you note that Goliath and David were fighting from somewhat of a distance, it makes David's weapon choice seem smart. He's good at attacking with accuracy from afar.


    It also makes you understand why Goliath was in trouble the moment David whipped out his sling. If David never got close to him, how could he attack and defeat him?


    "Goliath is a sitting duck. He doesn't have a chance," Gladwell concludes.

    Barbara Stone takes on Goliath vs. Florida Bar & Judiciary

    in Business

    Barbara Stone is a courageous "David" of sorts, taking on Goliath in a federal lawsuit against the Florida Bar for racketeering. She has also sued several judges for the legal abuse she has suffered via going to jail and being placed on house arrest for daring to try to save her mother's life from guardianship. In return for filing the most recent lawsuit, the judge in her mother's guardianship, Michael Genden, has issued a "show cause" order as to why she should not be held in contempt of court. The Order lists violating his Order, which prohibits Barbara from having any indirect or direct contact (ie knowing about her mother's neglect by the guardians), but is completely based upon hearsay and is thus, "no evidence." It certainly is replete with hearsay, which will not support a show cause order. The Judge is further trying to hold her in contempt for filing the Motion to Disqualify him due to his adverse interests. What a mess! Florida statutes say the Judge should disqualify himself because the 14th Amendment due process mandates it. See Caperton vs. Massey United States Supreme Court opinion (2009), which states that a judge must disqualify himself if there could be even an appearance of bias or impropriety, whether or not it subjectively exists. I think we have definitely met that standard here. The media will be at Monday's hearing, so let's cheer and encourage Barbara on as she helps write history!

    ARMORED UP WITH MY SIX PACK 2016- It's Not What You See..But What You Say!

    in Religion

            Speak Only The Vision!


    Now faith that means right now immediate faith that is not based on tangent, concrete evidence that is seen. God is the substance and the evidence is infallible word. Now faith is not what you see but what you hope for. Now faith was the Hebrew boys seeing the fiery furnace but saying my God can and my God will deliver us.  Now faith is David seeing the giant Goliath but saying  I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty and this day will He deliver you into my hands. David had evidence from God delivering from a bear and the lion when he kept his sheep, so his evidence increased his faith. (Samuel 12-7).  Now faith is Gideon looking at several hundred thousands of Midianites and seeing 300 of his men, but saying the sword for the Lord and Gideon! God's righteousness will help us to feel right and increase our faith. God was tenderhearted towards Gideon. God said want to encourage you. He instructed him to go down into the camp of the Midianites. Gideon heard the interpretation of a soldier’s dream. He said God will give the Midianites and the whole can into Gideon's hand. Gideon worshiped God. Worship is always the right thing to do. No one can resist God's word. God has done everything by his word. Lets be like our father. Speak those thing as though they were.                                                It’s Already Done!

    Even a David and Goliath moment, can have a Bathsheba moment too!

    in Christianity

    One of our biggest problems in life is how to use what we think!  Just because I think it doesn't make it true, but sometimes if I think it and believe it amazing things can happen.  I think about Troy Nicely, Angie Nicely, Tracy Mills, Ricky Morrison, this folks have been spiritual warriors as long as I can remember them.  Since their youth, I hope today's lesson shows us how to get our kids to believe they are a powerhouse for Jesus.


    When I said believe.... it's where the information comes from.   Statefarm has a great commercial.... girls says,' he is a french model..."  ugly boys walks up and yes, bonjourno... point is: if it is on the internet it has to be true..... do I need to type wrong here?

    TECH TALK - Keeping Personal Information Secure April 20, 2016 at 2:00 pm

    in Education

    April 20, 2016 at 2:00 pm - TECH TALK with Kingsley Meyer, Duane Rigsby and Mike Thompson. Discussions surrounding the 60 Minutes segment on Sunday  as to how easy it is to hack cellphones?  One weakness was the “Signal 7” component which is the internationally used middleware protocol to exchange information on roaming and billing information.  Discussion also surrounds “Data and Goliath: The Hidden Battle to Collect Your Data”, by Bruce Scheier. This is a book on who accesses and collects our data and how those parties (business & government) exchange your data for control & profit.  Other topics include:  Which applications leak our information(?): The End User License Agreements? Just click “I Agree”; what information /data will the IOT devices store in data centers; and how will that be “shared” among parties(?) and more.

    Holy Nation Church& Rev.Russell Moore: Who You calling A Dog? David&Goliath

    in Religion

    Davids opinion of Goliath is very different from King Sauls. David has Faith in God he believes God is stronger and bigger than the giant he's facing. David's battle plan consist of his staff, sling shot,five stones and the name of the God he serves. In the name of his God david see's Goliath as a creature. Goliath is like the Lion and the Bear David defeated in the past. Goliath feels disrepected by Davids lack of fear He's mad and ready to cut david to pieces. Can David put a collar around the Giant mans neck, listen in Sunday Morning as David tackles the real Atomic dog!

    in Current Events

    We are at war.  These are not your common garden predators but the Bad Boys that prevent you from gardening like any other period in history. 


    Tonight we will examine the Goliath of Frequency in the garden and our health.  Not the babblings of a fringe lunatic, scientific evidence has proven that frequency does impact your health and the health of your plants.  If you are a gardener you already know that healing frequency is found in the garden.  When we walk barefoot on the earth or listen to the buzz of honeybees collecting nectar or songbirds melodiously seranading your garden.  These sounds make your happy!  But there are nefarious sounds also. 


    We will discover that frequency impacts things that will shock you!  Frequency can even change water molecules.  By the end of tonight you will be inspired towards certain gardening practices that will have your gardening happily humming with abundance!
