    in Politics

    Sociology of Religion: Differentiating Magick & Witchcraft from Relition/Giana C

    in Spirituality

    Tonight we have with us Prof. Giana Cicchelli discussing the study of Sociology of religion and how it differentiates magick and witchcraft from religion, and only mentions it when look at the growth of Wicca, and the Goddess Movement.  This differentiation seems to be based on an assumption by most sociologists that magick and witchcraft are different from religion, and concerned with different outlooks and outcomes.  Prof. Cicchelli will cover the basic premise of sociology of religion, and the position of witchcraft within that, drawing from her own observations and research.  The talk will define magick and witchcraft and examine the difference between prayer and spellwork.  Other religions beyond witchcraft are compared and explored as well.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1096

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Nicolette Winn from San Angelo, Texas, a survivor, activist and author of "One." She says she's, ".. applying the principles of Industrial-Organizational Psychology to my role as Founder of "No Longer Silenced Movement" to pair teen and young adult survivors of child abuse with positive, concise resources so that they can succeed in life after abuse." She goes on, "Teen and young adult survivors of child abuse often don't have resources after leaving foster care or abusive homes. I wrote a book to reach out to them and started a program." NAASCA agrees there are not enough services provided to foster care kids, especially those needed in the particularly difficult time of transitioning out of protective serves and emerging into adult life. The quote from Jordan Shaw that accompany's the book's Amazon page reads, ""All it takes to start a raging inferno is a spark and only a step to start a life changing journey. This book tells the story of a girl with the will of a titan as she journeys through abuse and transforms into a powerhouse of a young woman. It's a personal account of her journey that is a vehicle of inspiration for others to either relate to or use as a stepping stone to find help. Let this book inspire you to reach out and help those who may be too scared to make the first move. Be the spark, be the shove to get them walking and started on their journey out."

    USA Freedom Act: passed by relative landslide this week in GOP House, awaiting Senate action, reportedly ends direct state bulk collection of phone records revealed (again) by Snowden, forces telecoms into bulk collection role


    Second Circuit Appeals court ruled this month that the Patriot Act did not, in fact, authorize the massive vacuuming up of people's communication data undertaken by U.S. spy agencies, despite ubiquitous, off-record claims to the contrary by "the intelligence community"


    Court records can give the public some idea as to how the telecom oligopolies are responding to both of these events, indications being that a likely scenario is the largely unabated supply of communications information to the government


    On May 31st of this year, Section 215 of the Patriot Act --used to support claims that nationwide, communications dragnet collection is authorized by law-- is expiring


    Cyberwar-- NSA's dual responsibility of defending US networks and acquiring offensive capability for exploits like Stuxnet.


    Commentary from Marcy Wheeler, Stuart Zechman and Jay Ackroyd. Political satire from Culture of Truth.
