    Sylvester Stallone, Mel Gibson and Jesus Christ

    in Religion

    Sylvester Stallone was a difficult birth, yanked from his mother's womb by a doctor's forceps that severed a facial nerve. As a result, the lower left side of his face is paralyzed, including parts of his lip, tongue, and chin, an accident which has given Stallone his trademark snarling look and slightly slurred speech.
    The Sheriff's Department referred the domestic violence investigation involving Mel over to the D.A. months ago. The extortion investigation involving Oksana is outstanding.

    TMZ first reported that the D.A. has been actively monitoring the Sheriff's Department investigation into the extortion claim and will make a joint decision on the two cases at the same time

    Sylvester Stallone: "Life is About Following Christ, Not Battling it Out Alone" (Gospel Light Minute

    in Movies

    He is an American actor, filmmaker, screenwriter and film director. He is best known for his machismo and Hollywood action roles. The most notable characters he has portrayed are boxer Rocky Balboa and soldier John Rambo. The franchises that stemmed from these characters solidified him as a mainstay in Hollywood. His film "Rocky" was inducted into the National Film Registry and its film props were placed in the Smithsonian Museum. He was voted into boxing's Hall of Fame on December 7, 2010.



    As a child, he used to attend church regularly, but as he got older and his acting career progressed, he stopped going to church. After several years of Hollywood fame and fortune, he says "I got back to my Christian roots. After my daughter was born ill in 1996, I turned myself over to the process of believing in Jesus. That conversion experience released me from the pressures of the world."



    He went on to say, "In the past, my ego and worldly temptations took over in my life and I went spiraling out of control. Rather than living like Rocky with some sense of ideal, I didn’t. I thought I was entitled to things but you’re not entitled to anything. You are what you leave behind. The more I go to church and the more I turn myself over to the process of believing in Jesus and listening to His Word and having Him guide my hand, I feel as though the pressure is off me now.” He said that the latest and final chapter in the ‘Rocky’ series, "reflects my conviction that life is about following Christ, not battling it out alone...You need to have the expertise and the guidance of someone else. You cannot train yourself. I feel the same way about Christianity and about what the church is: The church is the gym of the soul." His name is Sylvester Stallone.

    Cari Cornish and Special Education Law

    in Health

    Carin J. Cornish is an attorney.  She specializes in Special Education Law -- not the most lucrative specialty in law practice, but one which she find extremely rewarding in other ways.  All children have their own ways of learning, not all of which fit neatly into mainstream classrooms.  Cari is committed to helping to create the right nurturing environment for every special child.  She works through the Children's Law Center of Massachusetts.


    Cari talks with Joyce about the path that has led her to this specialty, and to her work with the New England Regional Genetics Group (NERGG).


    Sanfilippo syndrome was first described in 1963 by Dr. Sylvester Sanfilippo and is considered rare, with an occurrence of 1 in every 70,000 births. It is an autosomal recessive hereditary disorder, which means, both parents must be carriers in order for the child to be affected. There is a one in four chance of having a child born with Sanfilippo syndrome. There is a two in three chance that unaffected children will be carriers.
