[nig-er] Show IPA
The term nigger is now probably the most offensive word in English. Its degree of offensiveness has increased markedly in recent years, although it has been used in a derogatory manner since at least the Revolutionary War. The senses labeled Extremely Disparaging and Offensive represent meanings that are deeply insulting and are used when the speaker deliberately wishes to cause great offense. It is so profoundly offensive that a euphemism has developed for those occasions when the word itself must be discussed, as in court or in a newspaper editorial: “the n-word.”
Despite this, the sense referring to a “black person” is sometimes used among African, Negroe Americans in a neutral or familiar way. The sense referring to other victims of prejudice, especially when used descriptively, as to denounce that prejudice, is not normally considered disparaging—as in “The Irish are the niggers of Europe” from Roddy Doyle's The Commitments —but the other uses are considered contemptuous and hostile.

Just a few short years ago, the real estate meltdown and a very costly divorce left Kevin Marino working tirelessly to earn ends meet in hopes of one day gaining financial security. He had been completely broke and in search of a way to gain financial freedom when he discovered North American Power. What started as a “Side Project” began to grow, as did his income. In November of 2013, Kevin earned over $1,000,000 in combined earnings making him one of the very first Representatives to ever achieve this incredible milestone. Now that Kevin is earning a residual income every month, he has more free time and money to do whatever he wants, whenever he wants.
Since pursuing the Opportunity, Kevin has been able to take his life back, make a difference in the lives of others, and earn an income so impressive that it inspired Diana (his new Bride) to leave a corporate job she hated, and join him so they can succeed together. “The best thing is, we have the financial freedom to work the hours we want and make as much income as we choose, and we spend as much time as we want with friends, family, and each other.”

GUEST LEON FRANCIS - FORMER ST JOHNS ANTIGUA PLAYER WHO PLAYED WITH RICHIE RICHARDSON AND VIV RICHARDS.
Ben Manning was professionally coached as a child until a back accident meant he could not persue the game, however - he has commentated (as a collector and devotee of the game) with the BBC and for Somerset county cricket club's radio commentary - some of which can be found on youtube. The Murali Kartik incident in 2012 achieved 13,000 listens on youtube. His proudest moment was to be coached by Norman Cowans and the late Wilf Slack (England cricketers of the early eighties ) as a child, but as an adult his proudest moment was when he attended the memorial service of the late Christopher Martin Jenkins - "CMJ" - at St Pauls Cathedral in 2013.
Ben's Cricket Archive of Audio and readings of rare books will feature. Thousands of hours of footage unavailable elsewhere will feature.
Current affairs, stats and the great history of cricket.

Sharon Steele is a single mother of two and a fitness professional with the stated mission of encouraging people to embrace a healthy active lifestyle by offering fun, safe, and effective fitness classes suitable for various ages and abilities. She first learned to ride a bicycle at age 4 and has been riding most of her life. In 2010, she participated in her first Tour de Cure event, riding the 32K in Silcon Valley. She has since ridden in the Napa Tour de Cure twice (50 and 100 miles) and rode in the very first Tour de Cure Women's Series event in Santa Barbara in 2013 completing the 67 mile course. This event catapulted her love for cycling to new heights, converting her into a true roadie and soon to be competitive cyclist.
Sharon does not have diabetes. She descends from a family where type 2 diabetes and its complications are prevalent: mother, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins. She is of the belief that leading a healthy lifestyle can greatly reduce her risk for developing the disease for which she may be genetically predisposed. Her passion is to reach those communities that are at high risk and inform them of the common complications associated with diabetes and of ways type 2 diabetes can be delayed, managed or even prevented by the lifestyle choices we make. Sharon also has several friends who live with type 1 diabetes. It is her hope that helping to raise awareness about the work of the American Diabetes Association will aid in their gaining access to more resources toward developing a cure.

Formed in the mountains of northern Afghanistan, The Gillis Silo evolved from the friendship of classically trained piano player Ben Vige and life-long Singer/Songwriter Caleb Paul who met in the United States Army and served overseas together in Kabul from 2012-2013. Ben and Caleb called upon accomplished and experienced Baton Rouge musicians Jordan Snyder, Jared Daigle, and Karl Boudreaux upon their return home to carefully construct their alternative rock infused country sound.
Since the band's first performance in January 2014, The Gillis Silo has made waves throughout the U.S. with their own brand of music that fans have dubbed "Country on the Rocks". They have had the privilege of sharing the stage with Florida Georgia Line, Eli Young Band, Trace Adkins, Aaron Lewis, Jana Kramer, and Chris Young, and they have an upcoming concert with Easton Corbin in August.
Their single, She's My Hurricane, is in rotation in major radio markets throughout the South and their debut music video was recently picked up by CMT.
In July 2014, The Gillis Silo performed at Country Explosion in Tooele, Utah. They have played iconic venues throughout the South including The Varsity Theatre, The Howlin' Wolf, The Shed BBQ & Blues Joint, Hard Rock Cafe, and the House of Blues.
Their much anticipated debut EP is set for release late summer 2014.
The Gillis Silo proudly endorses and is sponsored by Pearl Drums, Spector Basses, Warmoth Guitars, and Soxfords.
Inspired by Jon Schaffer, creator of Sons of Liberty Music project and Iced Earth, and by Peter Neise, teacher and researcher of the federal government corporation, this program is intended to educate about the true system which has usurped the republic of the united States of America over the past 100 years.
2013 is dedicated to continued detailed study of the US of A vs. the US. You will learn the roots of the martial law territorial system from the District of Columbia, masquerading as the federal government of the United States. This usurper has led to the tyranny, madness and debt destroying the freedom of American society. One must educate ones self before you can learn how to be and stay a free live human being, as our founding fathers intended. Join me if you dare.....
