Jack the Ripper stalked the streets of London’s East End from August through November of 1888 in what is dubbed the ‘Autumn of Terror’. However, the grisly ripping of Polly Nichols on August 31st was not the first unsolved murder of the year. The April murder of Emma Smith and the August murder of Martha Tabram both occurred on bank holidays. They baffled the police and press alike and were assumed by the original investigators to have been the first murders in the series. Where they correct? In this provocative work of literary archeology, author Tom Wescott places these early murders in their proper historical context and digs to unearth new evidence and hard facts not seen in over 125 years. The Bank Holiday Murders is the only book of its kind. It eschews the tired approach of unsatisfying ‘final solutions’ in favor of solid research, logical reasoning and new information. The clues followed are not drawn from imagination but from the actual police reports and press accounts of the time. The questions asked by Wescott are ones first suggested by the original investigators but lost to time until now. The answers provided are compelling and sometimes explosive. Among the revelations are: • New information linking the murders of Smith & Tabram to the same killer(s). • Proof that the police did not believe key witnesses in either case. • Proof that at least one of these witnesses was working with the murderer. • New evidence connecting many of the victims that may lead to their actual slayers. • Information on Emily Horsnell, the ACTUAL first Whitechapel murder victim. • The hidden truth of ‘Leather Apron’ and its role in unraveling the Ripper mystery. • Proof of a corrupt police sergeant who thwarted the investigation. Was he protecting the Ripper? THE BANK HOLIDAY MURDERS: The True Story of the First Whitechapel Murders-Tom Wescott.
Professor Muhammad Yunus never wanted to be a banker and he certainly never imagined winning the Nobel Peace Prize. Yet his quest to help the working poor invest in themselves led to both. Known as the father of microcredit, Yunus spent years developing the Grameen Bank in Bangladesh, and in 1983 it became a fully licensed bank with a twist-it was owned by its borrowers-mainly poor women, and its mission was to eradicate poverty, not make a profit. Yunus is famous for saying that in developing Grameen he deliberately did the opposite of what a conventional bank would do. Today, the success of Grameen Bank has changed the lives of 7.5 million Bangladeshi borrowers and their families.
Now brining his bank to America, Grameen America opened for business in a nondescript office building in Jackson Heights, Queens in late 2007.
This is a non-collateral lending bank, and Gayle Ferarro will be in the studio to tell us all about Grameen Bank and how it works. Tune in this Friday, and learn all about Grameen Bank.
In the studio with me will be my Co-Host Sybil Marie Presley, and my radio personalities Sharon Coleman, Larone Woodard, and Rev. Douglas Martin.

My name is Andrea Perron. I am the eldest daughter of Roger & Carolyn Perron. I have four sisters: Nancy, Christine, Cynthia and April. My birthdate: October 10, 1958...the only one of five siblings to be born in Rhode Island. I was just two months old when my parents bought our first home in Willimantic, Connecticut, where all my sisters came into the world.
A burgeoning family required more space so we bought a larger home in Cumberland, R.I. when I was six. Living in a suburb of Providence proved disquieting. After six years my mother decided her girls required a place in the country in which to grow and thrive. In June of 1970 she found a glorious farm, then she and my father moved mountains to buy what was known as the old Arnold Estate; two-hundred acres of land with a big barn and a farmhouse; plenty of space to spread out and explore Nature. It was the perfect place to raise a family, according to the owner, though he failed to disclose a crucial element of the experience he endured as an occupant.
The day we moved in, he told my father: "...leave the lights on at night." A rather cryptic message. Thus began an incredible odyssey; a supernatural excursion through dimensions of time and space as the history of its characters from the ages began to reveal themselves to seven mortals who could not conceive of and never anticipated such events transpiring in our lives. For almost a decade our family lived among the dead.

No police. No EMS. No utilities. You're on your own. What are you going to do when the system collapses?
There's always someone who has long been wearing on you, constantly blabbing about “being prepared for the worst.” You’ve had just about all you can take of their constant yammering about hyper-inflation and bank closures, conspiracy nonsense about false flag attacks, and whatever this persistent bearer of incessant warnings is talking about. After all, your money is insured by the FDIC, the supermarket is full of fresh produce and aisles of food, gas prices are lower than they’ve been in years, employment is up according to the nightly news, and things are as normal as they’ve always been.
That guy needs help, you think. Is he trying to sell me precious metals? He keeps telling me to prepare and protect my money, get food, water, and even a gun. What would I do with a gun? Why carry money – my debit card works fine. Food? The store is 3 minutes away, and it’s open 24 hours a day. What an idiot, you think, and as you look around, you actually begin to chuckle at his doomsday musings. Damn fool, just like on those “prepper” shows. He can’t scare me, these things won’t happen here, and even in the off chance they did, there would be plenty of notice.
Or will there be?
Listen as Steve Quayle and Gregg Evensen talk about "when systems collapse."
Bishop James was born in Louisville, Kentucky and was raised Roman Catholic. He attended a Roman Catholic grade school and it was during the time while he was attending kindergarten that he knew that he had a calling to serve as a priest. His mother had asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up and James pointed at the priest and said, “I want to do what he does.”
From then on, his calling to serve as a priest grew stronger as the years progressed until he decided to join the seminary and begin his formation.
James attended St. Meinrad College but because of financial problems, the school had to close its doors. Therefore, he transferred to Loyola University in Chicago and graduated.
He continued his priestly studies by joining Saint Mary of the Lake in Mundelein, Illinois. It was during this time that James began working closely with his spiritual director and through prayer, he decided that God was calling him to serve as a priest within the Independent Catholic Church.
Because of his theological differences with the Roman Catholic Church, James felt that it was better to be ordained within the Independent Catholic Church. This decision was not an easy one and it was a decision that he made out of respect for the Roman Catholic Church and his calling.
He is currently the Archbishop for the United States Old Catholic Church and offers Spiritual and Life help for those who seek his assistance.
High flight risk Houston Criminal Attorney Percy Lawayne Isgitt was arrested February 26, 2015 for MISAPP / FIDUCIARY / FINANCIAL OVER 200K in Harris County Texas. Percy Isgitt was already facing civil charges for stealing $275,000 from his lifelong family friends the Jordan Family. Isgitt's recent legal troubles include being sued by Amercian Express for $24,000 followed by his wife of 50 years divorcing him in January, the highly public fraud he committed against his best friends and now being arrested. Amanda Brooks and Jill Brenneman have been public about the physical, emotional, sexual and financial crimes against them by Isgitt but Brooks and Brenneman struggled to gain mainstream respect because we are sex workers. Amanda and Jill explain one of Isgitt's probably motives for stealing these funds. In the Spring of 2014, after the funds were stolen, Isgitt hired surveiilance of Jill. The surveillance team eventually beat Jill, who now suffers a terminal medical illness as complications from these beatings. Isgitt has continously attempted to find Amanda Brooks location from friends. If given the chance Isgitt will likely jump bail to Puerto Penasco, Mexico with the assistance of his Phoenix based agent and proxie, a convicted felon private investigator. Vast documentation of Percy's Isgitt's emails to Amanda, and Jill including Brooks documenting the entire case prior to his arrest on her blog "After Hours" Stunning details revealed in this Episode of XXBN
