    "Damn, You Talk Too Much!" - COCKTAIL CONVERSATIONS - David Glover on KLJN 107.7

    in Radio

    Research say women speak 20,000 words a day compared to men who speak 7000 words, is there ever a time when women should stop talking and just listen, damn just SHUT UP PLEASE, we will be looking at a scenario with this being the case.
    DAMN, YOU TALK TOO MUCH!
    Ezra and Wanda have been dating for 6 months and both are career minded and focused. Ezra was an Assistant Director at a Juvenile Detention Home while Wanda was a Social Worker at a Nursing Home. Despite their demanding jobs both had their passions. Ezra was working on developing a Urban Tee Shirt Business,  Wanda was one of the best jewelry makers around, due to their demanding jobs and their other businesses they barely had time to see each other on a consistent basis but when they spoke on the phone, Wanda dominated the entire conversation, if they set aside a hour to catch up on what's been going on in each others life, Wanda would dominate, but her input would be negative, complaints about her job, family, jewelry business, and ex husband. Eventually Ezra grew tired of listening to this same old song over and over. He was looking for balance.  Someone he could share his world with and that was not happening with Wanda. When he wanted her to talk between the sheets she was typically quiet, go figure!!!. Eventually they had a massive blow up when Ezra had enough and told Wanda she talks too damn much and he did not want to hear another damn thing about her Ex, and nothing negative about her job... in this day and age she should be blessed she is working. Wanda felt he was rude and they ended what they had. Do you think Ezra was insensitive and Wanda was better off without Ezra?

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1076

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Tim Fisher, a returning NAASCA family member who lives in the Las Vegas area and runs Juvenile Justice Now. Tim, a child abuse survivor, will be with us tonight to describe his experience, strength and hope. Tim was seven years old when he met his predator, a neighbor, teaching Sunday school at the Baptist church. Now Steve Friess has written an article about Tim's important work: One Survivor's Crusade Reveals a Plague of Errors in Nation's Sex Offender Registries. The subtitle: "Estimates of the number of entries with crucial mistakes run into the tens of thousands. One man—and pretty much only one man—is trying to fix them." Tim has told us in the past, "By the time I had reached my 14th birthday I had been sexually molested approximately 350 times over the course of seven years." He continues, "It took four years for me to become strong enough to come forward." Eventually he went to the Anaheim police and reported his abuse and name his predator. From start to finish it took a year almost to the day for him to be convicted. Eventually he took a plea of guilty to 49 counts of child molestation, lewd conducts involving a minor and with the use of force. Sadly although he was sentenced to 2 to 12 years he was released after serving just nine months. "I’m here to remind you that the abuse never stops for the victim," Tim says, "I encourage anyone who has been sexually abused to make a report even if it happened when you were a child." In the recently published article, Steve accompanies Tim to the home of his molester, a registered sex offender.

    Averral of Oliver Cowdrey--Eyewitness of an Angel--As An Attorney in Court

    in Current Events

    Some time after leaving the Church, Oliver Cowdery, who had studied law, became prosecuting attorney in one of the counties of the state of Michigan. During the course of a murder trial the attorney for the defendant challenged Oliver Cowdery in the following words: 


    "May it please the court, and gentlemen of the jury, I challenge Mr. Cowdery, since he seems to know so much about the poor defendant, to tell us something about his connection with Joe Smith, and the digging out of the hill of the Mormon Bible, and how Mr. Cowdery helped Joe Smith to defraud the American people out of a whole lot of money selling the Mormon Bible and telling them that an angel appeared to them from heaven, dressed in white clothes." 


    “Finally, Oliver Cowdery arose calm as a summer morning. I was within three feet of him. There was no hesitation, no fear, no anger in his voice, as he said: 'May it please the court, and gentlemen of the jury, my brother attorney on the other side has charged me with connection with Joseph Smith and the golden Bible. The responsibility has been placed upon me, and I cannot escape reply. Before God and man I dare not deny what I have said, and what my testimony contains as written and printed on the front page of the Book of Mormon. May it please your honor and gentlemen of the jury, this I say, I saw the angel and heard his voice-how can I deny it? It happened in the daytime when the sun was shining bright in the firmament; not in the night when I was asleep. That glorious messenger from heaven, dressed in white, standing above the ground, in a glory I have never seen anything to compare with, the sun insignificant in comparison, and this personage told us if we denied that testimony there is no forgiveness in this life nor in the world to come. Now, how can I deny it-I dare not; I will not!” (As related by former Juvenile Court Judge C. M. Nielsen of Murray, Utah)

    Pushing Kids Towards Success vs. Pushing Them Out of School

    in Legal

    The “school-to-prison pipeline” refers to the policies and practices that push children, especially our most at-risk children, out of classrooms and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems. This practice has been fueled by zero tolerance policies, the presence of police officers in schools, and under-resourced academic settings. These excessive practices have resulted in the suspensions, expulsions, and arrests of of millions of public school students, especially students with histories of abuse and neglect, those who are poor, students of color, those with disabilities or who identify as LGBT. The interruption of education is detrimental for long-term success. It is costing the success of future generations and our communities.  On this episode of Spotlight on Youth, guests will discuss this alarming national trend, why it is harmful, and what jurisdictions are doing to address it.

    Guests:
    Rebecca Ballard DiLoreto, Kentucky Litigation & Policy Director, Children’s Law Center, Inc.
    Dennis Parker, Director, Racial Justice Program, American Civil Liberties Union
    Brea L. Perry, Associate Professor, Department of Sociology, Indiana University

    Healing your body natuarally- Is it possible?

    in Health

    Thursday 4/16/15 6PM ET  Healing your body naturally- Is it possible?

     Our series on health continues as we discuss the main precursor of most of modern day disease. Also, how we can prevent disease and heal our bodies naturally from the diseases we already have? Is it possible?

    A controversial topic. Homeopathy, or homeopathic medicine, is a medical philosophy and practice based on the idea that the body has the ability to heal itself. Homeopathy is making a big comeback, but why? Are the side affects of drugs worse than the disease, making homeopathic medicine a more appealing alternative?


    We will discuss the importance of whole foods and their medicinal properties along with the foods which are causing the rapid rise in diseases such as: cancer, arthritis, diabetes, obesity, autoimmune, and others.

    If you would like to be a part of tonight’s show offering information or your own testimony regarding healing your body naturally, please call in 347-826-9170. Press 1 on your keypad.
