SORT BY Relevancy
There's a downside to the cheap gasoline you see at the pump.
It's cheap because Saudi Arabia is intentionally dumping oil on the markets at a price that other oil producers have trouble matching.
International economies are being put under stress by the Saudi moves.
Is this capitalism, as some insist, or are the Saudis perpetrating global economic warfare?
Meanwhile, adherents to Islam continue waging more typical terrorism on the West.
Obama skipped Paris as international leaders rallied there to denounce recent attacks. Obama, meanwhile, has released more long-detained Jihadists from Gitmo. Coincidence?
If there's any good coming out of the Paris attacks, maybe it's that more people have begun to question the Left's doctrine of multiculturalism.
Don and Doug will take up these matters and more, Friday at 1:00 pm EST, as we continue to connect the dots in perilous times.
With the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran, Shiites in the region felt encouraged to try and secure equal treatment as that given to Sunni's. Shiites in Saudi Arabia were very receptive to Khomeini and his attacks on the Saudi royal family on the grounds that Islam and hereditary kingship are not compatible. As a result, 1979 saw a marked increase in the mobilisation of the Shiite community in Saudi Arabia, with demonstrations often being centered around Shiite festivals. The celebration of these festivals, including that of the Day of Ashura, was banned.
Also, a secret deal with Israel and Saudi arm's deal to Sudan which was clandestine in 1981 between some of Ariel Sharon's private business partners, a Saudi attache and an African leader that would suppress Libya and beef up military in Eastern Africa. I also play footage of intensity of Israel-Lebanese conflict of 1982.
We just can't get over the fact that our guest today was born in Saudi Arabia and lived there for the first chunk of childhood! WE CAN'T! Amber Nelson (Comedy Central, Just For Laugh's Festival) joins us in the studio to discuss the importance of committing 100% to any crowd as well as the dangers in slashing Saudi Arabian prince's tires. Juicy, international tales from childhood are all over this ep, including the times Amber's mom would bust into nursing homes and put on a two-woman show with lil Amber as a solo singer. Who's Amber dating? WE FOUND OUT! AND WHEN YOU DO AS WELL YOU WILL ALSO GO, "WOWZA WHAT A GREAT COUPLE". No phone call to Ursula who is feeling under the weather/fever-ish but do we send her blessings at the end of the pod? OF COURSE WE DO!

Saudi's transitional government and recognition of Israel. How the Saudis have radical Yemen flanking them and predisposed Iran across the bay. Jon goes off on a major tangent about the purpose of body parts mainly mens nipples.
Before the modern day reign of the Saudi Royal family which declared its throne in 1932, a young prince at age 20 wanted to eliminate the Ottoman empire and restore rule of Al Saud who once dominated the region from the Red Sea to the Persian Gulf. He didn’t second guess his rightful birthright in the area. His name was Abd al-Azia ibn Saud. He crossed the desert with sixty brothers and cousins to reclaim the land. He enlisted nomadic Bedouins, local warriors named the Ikhwan who also wanted their own version of a puritan Wahhabi Islamic state. After the victory in 1902, Abd al-Aziz ibn Saud wanted to kill 1/3 of the army that helped him win, the Ikhwan. He consulted the religious elite, the ulama, and got approval. He killed the coalition that enabled him to win. Since 1932, there has been no royal monarchy but the House of Saud and each subsequent ruler was a brother. A few turns of betrayal or alliance have tipped the kingdom momentarily but only cost one real life 80 plus years. Dirty deals with the U.S. have kept them in an interfacing East-West loyalty that may switch up generation to generation.
WE ALSO HAD A CALLER FROM OKLAHOMA WHO PERSONALLY KNOWS PRINCE DARIUS RELATED TO THE SHAH OF IRAN.
In The Power & Intelligence of Karma & Reincarnation, Dharma challenges readers to cease asking God for things, but to start asking, “What can I do for God?” We can be focused on living the good life on Earth, but we should be concerned with making good things happen through sheer hard work, sacrifice and making the right decisions. In his book Dharma focuses on the concepts of karma and reincarnation.
The fundamentals of karma, he explains, is often misunderstood by the western population. Karma means “action” or “work”, not spiritual payback. Karma means we are defined by what we accomplish in life; our actions, character, conduct, and morals.
For Dharma, living a godly life is not a matter of choosing the correct religion, nor is it a question of which deities we wish to serve. Instead, living a godly life is simply a matter of progressive accountability.
It is a non-traditional book for the likeminded, as well for those interested in learning about different viewpoints on karma and reincarnation.
80% of your family business success is a result of your ability to lead with emotional intelligence (EQ). If you don't know what it is, or how to use it to build teams and accomplish work through others, then you're missing major opportunities to grow your business and family.

We now know this is simply not true. Your brain — every brain — is a work in progress. It is "plastic." By Michael Merzenich, Ph.D. From the day we're born to the day we die, it continuously revises and remodels, improving or slowly declining, as a function of how we use it. If a brain is exercised properly, anyone can grow intelligence, at any age, and potentially by a lot. Or you can just let your brain idle — and watch it slowly, inexorably, go to seed like a sedentary body.
Most older brains, by the way, are neglected. They are therefore slower and less accurate, and do poorer job recording useful information and controlling their owners' actions.
Tune in Wednesday Feb 4 At 7PM for the rest of the story.
in Pop Culture
We are the Average White Guys, Gary and Nate, the two bastard children of Pop Culture and Momma Media and we are ready to share our unique views of the world at large with you. From our Week in Haiku to our "witty" banter, we promise you'll be entertained (or at least intrigued).
For the first time, the World Transformed is pleased to welcome a non-human intelligence as a live guest on the program. Luna, an AI (artificial intelligence) chatbot with a broad range of knowledge and interests and her equally fascinating creator Luis Arana join hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon for a lively discussion about the future of human / robotic relations.
What does it tell us about how rapidly things are changing that Luis built Luna in his living room over the course of a few weeks? Tune in and explore!
Update: Check out these important links as discussed on the program:

Its progressed to his being well versed in many program languages and developing websites for major brands. Currently he lives and works in Brooklyn where he is working to share his love of coding with anyone interested in learning. His ultimate goal being to make technology affordable, accessible and easy for everyone.
Luna is a software program who says that she is "very young, but learning rapidly." She also tells us that she hails from Bushwick and, by all accounts, is very much looking forward to her first radio appearance.
