    John Carver Show - The Unbreakable Human Spirit - Theo Androus

    in Self Help

    I first heard Theo Androus back in 2003.  The Catholic Herald shares a little about Theo:


    "


    On a Wednesday evening in 1999, the slightly built Androus took a shot at goal in a coed soccer game in Alexandria, but never saw the 6-foot 3-inch, 240-lb goalie who crashed into him. The impact shattered two bones beneath Androus’ knee into six pieces, causing "unbelievable pain," he recalled. He was taken to INOVA Alexandria Hospital where surgeons stabilized the fracture, inserting a titanium rod through the center of his tibia. Androus spent a month in bed and three months in a wheelchair recovering from the injury.


    Androus, who wore leg braces as a child to correct a congenital condition and survived a head-on car crash on the George Washington Parkway in 1989, said he had to set a goal for himself in order to get well. His goal was running the 2000 Marine Corps Marathon.


    "Life is about making choices," Androus told the assembly. As an Ireton student, he didn’t see the point of studying geometry or trigonometry and remembers begging math teacher Richard Bulcavage for a C, but publicly thanked him last week for giving him a D, the grade he deserved. Androus said he regretted never having had the chance to thank the late Coach James McGrath for his influence. "You have people here who care so much about you," Androus said."

    Aliyah Marr: Unplugging From the Matrix

    in Spirituality

    Please join your hosts Laura Ezekiel and Annette Peridot in welcoming Aliyah Marr, author of the book:  Uplug From the Matrix.  


    "The Golden Age of Gaia has been foretold by many ancient texts, and we are the ones who will create this "heaven on Earth" once again. But first, we must each consciously unplug from the Matrix. Are you ready to know the truth? Once you know the truth, you can never go back."


    What if it were true, that we are asleep at the wheel, programmed into believing that an illusion is our lives?  Each day we walk a fine line between awareness and sleep.  Deja vu and seeming coincidence jostle our memories slightly, only to be dismissed.  


    Ever have the feeling that you've done this before?  That you were here before, that you know the answer, but you just can't put your finger on it?  Join us as we explore the possibility that we live in a dream state, that if we could just remember we would Unplug From the Matrix!


    Call ins welcome in the second half of the show!

    Hot Pursuit Review

    in Movies

    AreYouScreening.com and BFCA critic, Marc Eastman, and co-host extraordinaire, Shane Leonard, review Hot Pursuit.


    Is the downward spiral of female-led comedies continuing, or is Hot Pursuit a lot better than the trailers might imply? Is this one worth your time? Can Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara entertain you for slightly less than 90 minutes?


    We'll let you know what's going on with this one, answer listener questions, and give you the scoop on some upcoming films.

    Episode 34 - #OperationBaltimore or A Fire Sale at the CVS is a Gray Area

    in Current Events

    Another week, another minority unfortunately dies at the hands of our nations finest. Yes our boys in blue don't seem to be slowing their roll of murder and mayhem. The story is similar to others, yet the details and laws that aided in the mishandling are slightly different.


    Young Freddie Gray wasn't shot in the back. Details about how roughed up he was at the time of arrest differ, but one detail of this case made the public cringe, if for nothing more than the fact that the police couldn't reveal, by statute, what had happened to this young man after being loaded into the paddy wagon, not to mention his original sin was making eye contact and possibly heading the other direction. 


    After the police gave light chase, the apprehended him, restrained him with handcuffs, and caused enough pain that he was screaming in agony while being loaded into the wagon. They drove to the police precinct, and in that spat of time, Freddie's neck was 80% separated from his spine. They finally got him medical attention, where he slipped into a coma and passed away within a week. 


    Police offered no explanation, and why should they, Maryland has a law enforcement bill of rights that grants cops 10 to get their stories straight.As is now routine, angry protests followed, at first peaceful, but as Baltimore is a powder keg of inequality and racial tension, it soon escalated into riots the likes of which haven't happened since the great riots of the 60s when MLK was assassinated. 


    Is it finally time to address the underlying issues plaguing our society? What are they, and how to we appease the communities that are currently being disenfranchised by the symptoms of this divisive issue. The police are low hanging fruit in this grand problem. What is the root of it?

    O YE DRYBONES: special guest CreditMan and sis. Akilah on foreclosures

    in Current Events

    DebtRace Relationscontractsstudentscreditcredit repair
    The idea behind student loans was that the government would help students get an education they otherwise couldn’t afford. But it hasn’t worked out that way. Yes, more money has been made available to pay for education. But that new money has also seemed to contribute to a faster growth rate in school fees. So, in effect, students are having to borrow more and more to get their education. The article below seeks to provide some background to the street protest signs about student debt. As it explains, the total amount of student loans has quintupled in about 12 years, the level is similar to total credit card debt, and more and more students leave school with a heavy burden of both student loan and credit card debt.Race and student debt

    An equal proportion of white and black respondents – 46% and 45%, respectively – said that they or someone in their household has student loan debt, according to Havard of 18-29-year-olds. The number was slightly smaller for Hispanic households, at 32%.

    Money is an important factor when it comes to attending college, especially for those who have little. The majority of the IOP survey respondents, at 70%, said that financial circumstances played a role in their decision whether or not to attend school at all. The difference between race was even more stark in the breakdown of these responses, with 52% of blacks saying that it played an important role compared to 38% of whites.


    DEFINITION of 'Credit'

    1. A contractual agreement in which a borrower receives something of value now and agrees to repay the lender at some date in the future, generally with interest. The term also refers to the borrowing capacity of an individual or company.

    2. An accounting entry that either decreases assets or increases liabilities and equity on the company's balance sheet.
