EXAMPLES OF DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: 1. How do drugs give people pleasure? Drugs are rewarding because they directly or indirectly stimulate the brain’s natural reward system and cause dopamine to be released. Dr. Steven Hyman: “Drugs are much more reliable and potent than normal stimuli. Instead of running that marathon, or for a scientist, working for months and writing a good paper and getting it accepted—a lot of work for a little dopamine in the brain—people who use drugs find that they can literally short-circuit all of these natural processes.”
2. Why do some people fall quickly into addiction, while others can experi- ment and then walk away? Dr. Hyman: “You know, it’s hardly heroic that we use alcohol well. And there’s no special act of will. And this gets back to the issue of vulnerability. That is, people who will take drugs enough to potentially get addicted seem to seek them out and enjoy them. They seem to have fewer warning signs.” Dr. Alan Leshner: “It’s not true that you take a drug and you become addicted for the rest of your life. Some people do. Most people don’t. However, most people (who routinely use) ultimately will become addicted to an addicting substance.

Then spake YHWH the Son again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8:12
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. James 1:5
Not that it hasn't been done before, but Ms. Computer Lady is doing re-visiting month. This subject matter has been talked about before. However, there continues to be the same argument about use of old equipment with new technologies. New computers with old printers, old software programs with new workstations, old SIM cards for new smartphones, old accessories with new tablets, and on from there.
This is part 2 of a 2-part series. We'll be going further into the updates, the advantages, the disadvantages, and so on.
During the civil rights era black americans stood against racial injustice and severe oppression. Today we have been ingrafted or intergrated into they system where some have higher wages, better jobs, homes, you name it, but have we really dealt with the injustices of racism? Have we just learned how to be comfortable under the system of white supremacy? In today's world we have more things, but less money. Most Black People are still living paycheck to paycheck and some say the black middle class is a myth. Entrepreneurship is still in the Black Community. Race Relations in Post -Obama America appears to have gotten worst.Which brings us to our Question of the Day: Has Black America lost it's voice? Have we been hijacked by the so called new black who are content with racial injustice as long as they are provided the illusion of inclusion? Call in and share with us your thoughts. Plus we will have the latest news and events in pop culture & more. So tune in this Saturday @12:30 PM CST
In our last episode, we looked in on America’s Transformation from a nation of folks in debt to a nation of cheerful givers. We’ve been looking for ways to sustain community building efforts and reverse what the president termed, a gulf of mistrust. Whether or not you agree, bridging that gulf of mistrust and ENGAGING historically disadvantaged Americans is going to take a little more money reinvested where you live, learn, work and worship. ARE YOU REALLY READY, WILLING AND ABLE TO RECEIVE MORE MONEY? From Where Wealth Commeth is our topic for discussion as we explore Wealth Transfer, from Melchizedek to Malachi to Jesus.

In this second episode, Sacerdotus continues to speak on the decision by the New York St. Patrick's day parade to allow a LGBT group to march in its 2015 parade. The decision is controversial because the LGBT have been banned for decades from marching under their own banner. More is added to this controversy due to the fact that Cardinal Dolan was made the Grand Marshal and he accepted. This brought upon him a lot of criticism by some Catholic bloggers and other Catholic reactionaries.
Joining me today will be Liberty Fest starlet Marcel Fontaine, whose speech inspired a VICE.com reporter to cover the intersection of gays and guns in a way that gave both LGBT for Gun Rights and Outright Libertarians some well-deserved attention.
Outright Arizona is a state chapter of Outright Libertarians, the LGBT caucus in the Libertarian Party.

Tonight's special guest is Laura M Parks from Chandler, Arizona, child abuse and DV survivor - author of several books including, "Under the Broken Halo," "A Promise to God: The Story of Pastor Cam Iverson" and "Alias 'The Rose': Though the petal may fall.....She shall never be forgotten." Being brutally raped by her older brother, molested regularly and beaten by her father, emotionally abused by her mother, and molested by other family members, led her down a very destructive path. "By my teen years I didn't know which way was up and dreamed of either dying or running away." She says. "I married men like my father, domineering, abusive, and controlling. Between marriages I hung out with bikers in dimly lit bars engaging in activities that were less than appropriate for a mother of young children. I made some bad decisions and the cycle of abuse continued in my children." One morning in February of 2009 she woke up and said "enough is enough." She decided to start living instead of just existing. "I had faith that I could finally become a whole person and started making arrangements to move on with my life," she says. "The day I left my third husband, he was waving a gun in my face threatening to blow a hole in anyone that came on "his" property. Even though I was terrified and shaking, I refused to back down from him. I packed my stuff, got in my car, and drove away from the nightmare." Laura concludes, "I listened to my voice inside, prayed every day, stayed strong and never looked back. My mission is to inspire others to become survivors and stop considering themselves victims. If I did it, so can you." As Laura says, "We don't have to stay victims, we can all become survivors."
