    BS of the Sun Podcast 3/4/15

    in Basketball

    Dave King is my copilot again this week as we discuss an eventful week of games that included a Westbrook vs. Bledsoe showdown, a beatdown of epic proportions by the Spurs, a wrestling match against the Heat and a slump busting victory over Orlando.


    Randy Hill from Fox Sports Arizona joins the show to discuss the X's and O's of the Suns offense and addresses the topic of player effort.


    We also touch on the negative news from the week including Markieff Morris calling out the fans (then getting ejected the next game) and Channing Frye taking a shot at the Suns front office. Basically, a pretty normal week for the Suns as of late.

    in Lifestyle

    This week we will be talking about the elderly and special care and the benefits of that service.
    We will also be talking about hospice care and the toll that that takes on the loved ones of the recipients.
    Have you ever had a loved one that received special care? Do you know what that is? Do you know what the financial obligations of Special Care are? Is it available to everyone?
    What about hospice care? What are the differences between Special Care and Hospice Care?
    Have you ever had a loved one that received Hospice Care? What are some of the factors that determine whether a person should choose hospice Care or or not?
    What is the emotional toll that is taken on the family of the recipient? Is Hospice Care always the end of the road for the recipients? Does anyone ever come back from receiving Hospice Care or is it usually time to just start making funeral arrangements?
    This featured guest on this show will be Darby Didah McIntyre-Guy? who has worked in the Special Care industry for a little under 2 decades and has a wealth of knowledge on the topic from a manager's standpoint as well as working in the field.

    Urban Therapy with Sun #138 Treating Them Like They're Grown

    in Lifestyle

    What are the consequences to encouraging or allowing your kids to do things before they're old enough to understand them or process them?
    Is growing up your kids too early a way of taking away their innocence? Do we live out our fantasies through our children sometimes? Is it right for us to do that? Do we set our kids up for trouble by letting them experience things that we may have had to wait to experience when we were their ages? What about when we let them experience things that we did experience at their ages even though it got us into trouble at their ages?


    In your opinion, what is the right age to let your kids:


    Drink alcohol
    Smoke weed or experiment with drugs
    Wear makeup
    Get into a serious relationship
    Date
    Have sex
    Get on birth control
    Travel on their own
    Drive a car
    Experiment with weapons
    Manage their own money
    Stay home alone
    Wear high heels
    Purchase things for a girlfriend or a boyfriend
    Get a job
    Babysit
    Hang around with teenaged parents
    Etc


    Do we allow our kids to grow and learn independently or do we navigate them through their young lives and and keep them safe?

    Urban Therapy with Sun #137 Father's Day, Father's Way 2015

    in Lifestyle

    The time has come for fathers and men in general to be represent and to be represented. Far too often, we forget the importance of the positive male presence in the home and/or in our lives. Sure, we know that their are plenty of deadbeat dads and absentee dads that have had a negative effect on plenty of children's lives out there but why should they always have the spotlight more than the good dads and the good men that have fought tooth and nail to ensure a good life for their children and their families? That's unacceptable but don't get me wrong, this won't be a goody goody daddy two shoes show. For those that feel the need to downplay the significance of fathers and the male influence in our lives, we invite y'all to bring your valid and invalid sour grapes gripes to the forefront too. Everyone's feelings and experiences will be welcomed and represented. Fair is fair.


    We need men to come out and represent on this show. If you are a dad and/or you have been a father to a child that was not your biological child and was instrumental to their growth and development, we need to hear from you on this show.


    If you're a dad that has been estranged from your children for any reason and you would like to get it off of your chest, this is your show. No excuses this time. No baby mama excuses, child support excuses, incarceration excuses, age excuses or anything. Now is the time to represent and try to get right. Tell your story. Fix your story.


    There is no crying in fatherhood. Well, sometimes there is but I'm saying.

    Urban Therapy with Sun #135 Lose Weight And Get Healthy Or Bust

    in Health

    Who doesn't want to get their weight to a manageable level and stop getting sick all the time? Who doesn't want to look great in their clothes and receive compliments wherever they go?
    Who likes to spend hours in the mirror obsessing about what to wear and how it really looks to others?
    Who doesn't want to wipe their minds free of insecurity and self-doubt?
    Would you agree that most people want to eat the right things? Why do people really make excuses for eating a lot of unhealthy and non-nutritional foods? Is it simply because they taste good or is there a deeper reason at work?
    Is it true that some people are too embarrassed to workout in front of others so they either just keep living in an unhealthy way or they try more dangerous weight loss methods so they can look good enough to go to the gym?
    Are there support groups for that? Is there help? What kind of help is there available?
    This Wednesday we will have Linda Smith of Linda's Vegetarian Village (6381 Germantown Ave Phila, PA 19144) on hand to assist us with some great information about Healthy and tasty vegan meals, healing herbs and the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and how it can be achieved without sacrificing taste or time.


    Make sure you check this show out. Your life could depend on it and it does.

    Urban Therapy with Sun #134 Make Up Sex Fightin' And F******

    in Lifestyle

    Make up sex. What exactly is it? What's it to you?


    Is it a good thing? A bad thing? Something that all couples do? Something that has become more popular in the media in recent years? Is it safe? Is it dangerous? Is it something that makes up for an argument? Does it end with just an argument or disagreement or is violence sometimes what's being made up for?


    Are there people who actually start arguments or fights in order to initiate make up sex? Would someone do that?


    Is the sexual energy that comes after an argument healthy? Can it be unhealthy?


    Is make up sex really just a cover up for domestic violence?


    If you like make up sex but the person that you're with doesn't like it or understand it, how will that work? Can that work?


    Do most people who engage in make up sex usually know what they are getting into or does it get introduced to some people at the most inopportune times? Can you learn to like it and if so what does that say about a person?


    Boy are we gonna get into this one. The question is how will we get out of this one? LOL

    Urban Therapy with Sun #133 Can Eating It Make Me Happy?

    in Health

    This show is kinda about eating disorders but not all the way.
    Does food make some people feel better? Does it substitute for other deficiencies in people's lives?

    Recently I put out a question on Facebook dealing with this situation: I just heard a conversation between two women in the fitness room and one of them was saying that she gained a lot of weight because she didn't have a man for a long time.

    Huh? Loneliness = weight gain?

    Can someone explain this logic to me?

    One of the things that many responders eluded to was that the woman in this example probably compensated her loneliness with food. Is this true? Can that work? Are there many people who resort to this?

    Can eating unhealthy foods make a person feel better emotionally? If so, why does it have to be the unhealthy foods that do the trick? When does it stop? Is it a woman thing? Do men go through this as well? If men go through the same thing then is it for the same reasons?
    Will men or women change their lifestyle when or if they get what they have been missing?

    We'll get into these things and more and we'll also talk about turning all of this around and how eating nutritional foods can also cause emotional problems.

    This show will be the absolute bomb! Tell some friends.
