    Writer Gordon Bushell

    in Entertainment

    Ever wonder where those clever commercials you see on TV come from? Wonder no more, because they might have originated from the creative and very funny mind of Gordon Bushell, an award winning and one of the original "Mad Men" who started his career as a copy writer at Macy's and retired as the chairman of a major N.Y. ad agency. After writing his first book, Humor Is A Funny Thing, a book that turned everyday hum-drum moments into a laugh-out loud funny book of comedy sketches (and a winner of the International Book Award), Gordon turned his attention to Punctuation and published a clever children's book called Panic In Punctuation Land!

    Christian Doctrines: Can you prove what you practice and believe?

    in Christianity

    Traditional Christianity leaves a lot of missing pieces to the picture of salvation, real change, and achieving the status of Jesus Christ, which is required by the true Plan of God. Most plod through life, even as an alleged "Christian" and still feel empty, frustrated and not really connecting to what they long for in "spirituality."

    Christ warned of a false "Christianity" which would sound and look "Christian," and would be coming from people who purport to "be" Christian teachers, but would be deceiving many...

    Matt 7:22  "Many will say to Me in that day , 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?'  23 And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!' NKJV

    Here's another warning...

    Matt 24:5 "For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ ; and shall deceive many."

    Most believe this is teaching that "many" would be coming trying to say they are "Christ," and by this, would deceive "many."  That is NOT what this is teaching.  You don't come in the "name" of Christ, and then pretend to "BE" Christ.  Look at it again with proper punctuation and true meaning...

    Matt 24:  "For many shall come in my name, saying I, (Jesus) am the Christ; and shall deceive many."

    Do you see the deception?  Christ is here warning that many would be coming in His name, saying that He was the true Christ, yet that this message they carried would deceive the many?  How can this be.  How can people "preaching" Christ be deceiving people with that message?

    If you do not understand the true plan of God as taught in the bible, you will NOT escape this deception!

    Robert Blechman writes a mystery from Twitter messages

    in Books

    Authors on the Air is pleased to present Dr. Robert Blechman and "Executive Severance", his murder mystery comprised of Twitter messages.   "On May 6, 2009, I began a literary experiment: Was it possible to maintain a narrative structure and attract a reading public in Twitter, live-tweeting 140 characters at a time? Posting a new "tweet" twice a day, every day, never missing a deadline, I completed his twitter mystery or "twitstery" in 15 months. The 140 character limit of Twitter required intensive wordsmithing, creative editing, and the omission of punctuation in some cases and a lot of counting. To succeed I adopted the narrative strategies of cartoon artists Al Capp, Chester Gould and Will Eisner as well as canonical mystery writers Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett and Robert B. Parker."
    Dr. Blechman teaches at Fordham University in the Department of Communication and Media Studies. His areas of expertise include the creative use of social media, advertising and media industries.   RKBs_Twitstery http://www.twitter.com/authorsontheair
