Dr. Linda Tucker's topic onToday’s message is The Spirit of control and manipulation” The Jezebel spirit
Controlling spirit is more interested in judgment, control and manipulation than forgiveness.
The Jezebel spirit is always motivated by its own agenda and relentlessly pursuses it. It is intent on getting what it wants. There may be one in every ministgry of the church and every family, trying to dominate, arrange, and fix everybody.
I taught my daughters to always defend yourselves. When my daughters became 10 and 5 years of age and for about the next 5 years my youngest daughter would come crying to me saying her older sister had hit her. I'd ask "Did you hit her first ?" and she would often reply "Yes, but I didn't hit her as hard as she hit me". I explained to her that when you hit someone first they have no obligation to hit you back like you hit them. When you put your hands on someone else you better be prepared for whatever comes back to you. There are no rules of engagement once the first blow has been dealt. I believe females are precious and fragile. They are susceptible to react without thinking based on their emotions.
As men we have been told never hit a female because they don't have the mass of men and they aren't as strong as you. I know that to be true. Women tell men all the time that women are fragile and we are too ruff sometimes. Do women believe that other women are special also and should be treated with respect? Would a women have reacted like Ray did if a woman came after her like Janay did? When anyone has been given permission to spaz out and react anyway they want and blame it on the vagina I have a problem. When someone can say whatever they want to you, spit in your face and even attack you and know you better not do anything you have created a monster. When you tell someone these are the rules then you are telling me that they are stupid and you can't hold them accountable for their actions. What would happen if Ray Rice was a gay female, same size who did what he did would you demand jail and try to destroy her life? It kinda reminded me of Dave Chapelles "When Keepin It Real Goes Wrong"
On August 19, 2014, RevKess got to sit down at the KZUM studios and talk with SJ Tucker and Betsy Tinney. Both ladies are truly magickal beings and they were in Lincoln, NE to bring their special kind of musical magick to an audience at the historic Feguson House. Earlier in the day they met with RevKess to talk about their music, their lives, and share of themselves with listeners of Murphy's Magic Mess on KZUM - and with the PMPChannel listeners.
August 24 heard the first part of this conversation on the Mess. The second segment, split into two parts, was heard on September 7. For your listening enjoyment is the entire interview and a selection of music. The music is slightly different from that heard on the Mess.

For all the differences between the sexes, here's one that might stir up debate in the teacher's lounge: Boys learn more from men and girls learn more from women. That's the upshot of a provocative study by Thomas Dee, an associate professor of economics at Swarthmore College and visiting scholar at Stanford University. His study appears in Education Next, a quarterly journal published by the Hoover Institution. Vetted and approved by peer reviewers, Dee's research faces a fight for acceptance. Some leading education advocates dispute his conclusions and the way in which he reached them. But Dee says his research supports his point, that gender matters when it comes to learning. Specifically, as he describes it, having a teacher of the opposite sex hurts a student's academic progress. His study comes as the proportion of male teachers is at its lowest level in 40 years. Roughly 80% of teachers in U.S. public schools are women. Dee's study is based on a nationally representative survey of nearly 25,000 eighth-graders that was conducted by the Education Department in 1988. . Dee found that having a female teacher instead of a male teacher raised the achievement of girls and lowered that of boys in science, social studies and English. Looked at the other way, when a man led the class, boys did better and girls did worse. The study found switching up teachers actually could narrow achievement gaps between boys and girls, but one gender would gain at the expense of the other. Dee also contends that gender influences attitudes. For example, with a female teacher, boys were more likely to be seen as disruptive. Girls were less likely to be considered inattentive or disorderly. In a class taught by a man, girls were more likely to say the subject was not useful for their future. They were less likely to look forward to the class or to ask questions.

With the taunting words “I dare you”, MARK LORENZ turned an adolescent dare into a Canadian Country music career. Born and raised on a farm just north of Airdrie, Alberta, Mark Lorenz lived and breathed the country life. Learning to ride a horse and drive a tractor was an everyday activity. “When I was 17, some friends and I were shopping for a birthday present for a buddy that had everything," Mark explains. "We were walking through a mall in Calgary, and came across a small recording studio. After some taunting, maybe even a couple of chicken calls, I ended up recording a song. And the rest is history.” After recording his first song, Mark was approached by the recording engineer and asked if he wanted to enter a local singing contest. Mark won that singing contest. He has gone on to record an EP and albums with popular songs like You Wreck Me, Like a Radio & Somewhere In Alberta.
Filmmakers Vohn Regensburger, Wash Westmoreland, Richard Glatzer, and Chris Bruno talk about their new movies: A Remarkable Life and The Last of Robin Hood. Regensburger is the writer/director of the first film, which stars Bruno, who also helped with the writing and served as one of the producers. Glatzer and Westmoreland are the writers/directors of the second offering to be discussed. Film critic Mack Bates will co-host.
A Remarkable Life tells the story of a man who finds his life falling apart and is forced to examine his identity, his manhood and his sense of self. Lenny (played by Bruno) faces loss of his job, a son with Asperger's Syndrome, and a wife who's fallen in love with the son's female doctor. It's a highly entertaining film - but one that gives us a lot to think about. Director Regensburger also composed the impressive music score, just as he did for his first film, Last of the Romantics.
The Last of Robin Hood follows Errol Flynn's scandalous affair with a star-struck teenage girl. Kevin Kline plays Flynn in his later years -- not the heartthrob from The Adventures of Robin Hood. Dakota Fanning and Susan Sarandon play the young girl and her mother who enables the affair, respectively. This fascinating film deals with fame and the high price it can exact. Glatzer and Westmoreland have also written and directed Quinceanera, Pedro, The Fluffer and Grief.
