Our guest on Metalsmith Benchtalk on Thursday, April 30th, 2015 at 3:00 PM PST/ 5:00 PM CST is Chris Ramsay, artist and Professor of Art at Oklahoma State University, where he teaches metals and jewelry courses. Ramsay's artwork is composed with objects that he has collected and arranged to pursue his interests in conservation, life cycles, and his relationship to nature.
Professor Ramsay has taught at Oklahoma State University since 1990 and served as the Head of the OSU Art Department from Fall 2008-Fall 2012. Ramsay has taught workshops in numerous locations around the world and during the summer of 2008 taught jewelry making classes for the University of Georgia, Study Abroad Program in Cortona, Italy. Ramsay has been awarded artist-in-residencies at the Oregon School of Arts and Crafts, in Portland, OR. and Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island, Maine and was awarded an Open Studio Residency at Haystack School of Crafts, Deer Isle, ME. His artwork is in several personal collections and the permanent collections of the Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa, OK., Children’s Hospitals of Cleveland, OH., and the botanical gardens of Southern Living Magazine, in Birmingham, AL.
“As an artist I am concerned with the subtle, yet, dramatic relationship between all components of our environment. To fulfill the requirements of this idea, my artwork utilizes a variety of media, form, and scale. I integrate collected objects into my work as a metaphor for the cycle of change that all materials and objects are affected by, including myself. ”
Chris Ramsay: Meditations in Stillwater will feature more than 30 works from the past two decades by artist and OSU professor Chris Ramsay.
As different forms of thinking separate cultures, it’s also the case between those who are happy and successful, and those who aren’t. Great change has always come from thinking outside the box. Familiarity often turns our box into a prison without realization, crippling our potential success and sapping our happiness.

On tonight's episode of Talking in Circles; we discuss this weekend's events at Talladega Superspeedway. The NASCAR Xfinity Series race was clouded with controversy as Joey Logano won the Winn-Dixie 300, but the rules in the NASCAR Xfinity Series prohibit drivers from "push drafting." It was evident that no matter how big or how small, there was push drafting during that race, and some think that there should have been a different winner.
The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, the Geico 500 was the exact opposite today. There was an early "big one" that was caused when Trevor Bayne got sideways in front of the field. This took out some early contenders in the race.
Other than that, there wasn't much action. Everyone was anticipating the others making their move with around 20 laps to go. No one did. No moves were made. A couple of drivers tried to get out of line, but no one gave them any help and Dale Earnhardt, Jr went on to the victory.
We'll discuss the strategy of the end of the race, and what just may be going through people's head at the end of the race.

RUMORS HAVE IT THAT IN A SECRET International Council for Ifa Religion (ICIR) CONFERENCE FOR MEMBERS ONLY, THE BOARD MADE SOME STRONG IRREVERSIBLE AND IRRESPONSIBLE DECISIONS THAT WOULD ROCK THE FOUNDATION OF IFA FOREVER.
IN A UNANIMOUS AGREEMENT, REPORTEDLY, MEMBERS AGREED TO GIVE ALL DIASPORIANS, PARTICULARLY AFRICAN-AMERICANS, SEEKING IFA/ORISA KNOWLEDGE, INITIATIONS, EBOS, RITUALS, ETC; ONLY ONE PERCENT (1%), OF WHAT THEY PAID FOR.
WAS DIVINATION DONE WITH ORUNMILA TO COME TO SUCH A DECISION AND IF SO WHAT WAS THE ODU?
WAS THE DECISION TO GIVE DIASPORIANS ONLY 1% OF WHAT THEY PAID FOR, PURLY MOTIVATED BY GREED?
WHAT WAS THE RATIONAL BEHIND SUCH A MAGNANIMOUS DECISION MADE BY NIGERIAN BABALAWOS AND CHIEFS IF NOT GREED?
WAS ONE OF THE IMPLICATIONS SUCH AS HAVING CUBANS SAYING THE NIGERIANS HAD NO ASE, SPAWNED OUT OF MAKING SUCH A DECISION?
WAS THIS DECISION A MOVE TO KEEP THE WIVES OF AWOS IN NIGERIA “BARE FOOT, PREGNANT AND ILLITERATE” OR WAS IT GEARED TOWARD KEEPING DOWN, THE PROGRESSIVE AND EDUCATED WOMEN IN IFA OF THE DIASPORA ORISA FAITH
WAS THIS DECISION THOUGHT OF AS A POWER MOVE BASED PURELY ON ECONOMICS?
HOW DID THIS MOVE AFFECT THE POSTERITY AND EFFICACY OF IFA ITSELF?
WHO DID THIS MOVE HURT?
The Elijah Challenge trains committed disciples, missionaries, and servants of God to proclaim the kingdom of God effectively to non-Christian, gospel-resistant people groups by closely following the approach used by Jesus and his disciples in the New Testament where actual evidence for the truth of the gospel was seen—miraculous healings from God following prayer. The goal is the fulfillment of the Great Commission: making disciples of all nations and teaching them to obeyeverything Jesus commanded his disciples.
Over the last 15 years the Lord has made us very fruitful, training tens of thousands of disciples in over 40 countries around the world and counting. Many of these servants of God are now preaching the gospel and laboring very fruitfully in harvest fields around the world.
Meet author David Merkatz, he's the author of the book Wrongly Charged: A Look at the Legal System.
This book is making quite an impact due to some of the recent headlines dealing with police and abuse of power.
About the book:
What would you do if you were arrested and wrongly charged with a crime? It can happen in the blink of an eye. It’s not supposed to happen in the United States, but it can at any time. After being advised by his attorney in 2013 that his new marketing strategy was legal, Florida locksmith David Merkatz was shocked to learn he was under criminal investigation. Then he was arrested and charged with money laundering and an organized scheme to defraud. With the flip of a switch, he was facing a 20-year prison sentence. He was terrified. Life as he knew it was over, and it happened in an instant. But David Merkatz was determined to fight back.
About the author:
Until 2013, David Merkatz made his living as a locksmith in Coconut Creek, FL. Life, he thought, was pretty good. While there were some trademark issues with his business, he was making a living and enjoying his life. That all changed August of 2013, when police arrested David Merkatz and charged him and two of his fellow locksmiths, Peter Lomagistro and Joshua Levy, with a host of crimes ranging from money laundering to petty theft.

Before any of you blow a gasket, listen to my evidence before making your decision if what I say is a lie or not. The dictionary defines royal as “descended from or related to a king” and if you truly believe in the Bible, call yourself a Christian or believe in a higher power, you have got to admit that the evidence I am about to lay out to you is quite compelling.
Celebrate Dan's Victory Ride
Support TBI Rehabilitation Research at Kessler Foundation
After his injury, Dan relearned the basics that most of us take for granted—walking, talking, and reading at Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation. He worked hard to regain his ability to think, learn, and remember. His therapists at Kessler Institute used intensive therapies, many developed by the scientists at Kessler Foundation.

Our breakthrough research improves cognition, mobility, and long-term outcomes. Our funding of disability employment initiatives provide access to job opportunities, education, transportation and job training.
Dan's story is just one example of how your support can improve the lives of people with disabilities. Celebrate Dan's victory ride by making a gift today—a gift that will help others gain independence. Every dollar of your donation directly supports our misson to change the lives of people with disabilities.
