    Rating systems for books?

    in Writing

    We had some technical problems with this recording.

    Some people want a rating system for books. Is it a good idea or a bad one?

    In this episode of Write Pack Radio, the Write Pack explores the idea of using rating systems for books like it is used for films, games, and music.

    Should there be a rating system on books or does books already self-rate itself through its genres?

    Or is a rating system just an additional complication?

    Would a rating system help guide the reader?

    Do rating systems just go too far?

    Do ratings systems change as things that are “not socially acceptable” change as times change?

    Do unofficial rating systems happen in society?

    What do rating systems really rate?

    The Unknown Zone: Are the Elites Picking the Presidents?

    in Paranormal

    The most recent democratic presidential debate resulted in a stark dichotomy.  The "expert" pundits all saw a great victory by Hillary Clinton and was trumpeted across the internet and every major newspaper in a prewirtten script, yet every poll from CNN to Fox, from MSNBC to Drudge had Bernie Sanders winning by an overwhelming majority.  What could explain this?

    Have the elites already picked the presidential nominees?  What are the connections between Hillary Clinton and CNN, ABC, CBS and more.  The truth will shock you but explains a lot.
    Judy Sellins and Dave Turco will bring all of the real information about the unspoken connections between the ruling world elites and the current crop of US presidential candidates and how the media is controlled by the same forces resulting in a perpetual loop of hand picked presidents who serve the elite few not the many US citizens.

    Sacred Sunday~Galatians, Chapter 2/More Adventures in Jerusalem

    in Christianity

    More Adventures in Jerusalem

    Paul keeps going with the backstory stuff. Fourteen years after he first visited the church in Jerusalem, God tells him to head back there again. This time he takes his pals, Barnabas and Titus, with him. Gotta have the entourage.  Basically, Paul is coming to get their support for his mission to the Gentiles. He's been all around the eastern half of the Roman Empire telling everyone that Gentile converts don't need to follow every single Jewish law. Maybe one or two, but not all 613 for sure. It's important to note that Paul doesn't want their approval. He already knows his message is a-okay by God. He just needs to know they won't interfere with the work he's trying to do. The leaders in Jerusalem are pretty much on board. No one says anything about Titus—who's Greek and not circumcised—so things are going pretty smoothly. So as long as Titus keeps it in his pants, things are gonna be fine. That is, until some naysayers sneak into the mix. But Paul stays strong and eventually the leaders of the church—including James, Cephas, and John—side with him. They recognize all the grace that God has given him as the apostle to the Gentiles and send Paul on his way. Now he and Barnabas are in charge of spreading God's word to the Gentiles. The folks in Jerusalem will work on getting the Jews on board.  Look, Paul might be a Jew by birth, but he knows that simply obeying Jewish law can never make a person right with God. Only having faith in Jesus can do that. If a Christian is faithful, but he still has foreskin and enjoys a ham sandwich every once in a while, well, God still thinks he's aces. After all, God sent Jesus to earth to die. If the law alone could make us besties with God, then what the heck did Jesus go through that whole crucifixion thing for?

    Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?

    There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.

    Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.

    But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!

    If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you! 

    It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
