Today's show is all about Urban Fantasy versus Paranormal. Christine walks us through the differences and similarities of these subgenres.
Christine is the author of the Cassie Scot Paranormal Detective Series. Her most recent book is Stolen Dreams.
About the book:
Edward Scot and Victor Blackwood have hated one another for nearly a quarter of a century, but now their simmering hatred is about to erupt.
When Cassie Scot returns home from her sojourn in Pennsylvania, she finds that her family has taken a hostage. Desperate to end the fighting before someone dies, Cassie seeks help from local seer Abigail Hastings, Evan Blackwood's grandmother. But Abigail has seen her own death, and when it comes at the hand of Cassie's father, Victor Blackwood kills Edward Scot.
But things may not be precisely as they appear.
Evan persuades Cassie to help him learn the truth, teaming them up once again in their darkest hour. New revelations about Evan and his family make it difficult for Cassie to cling to a shield of anger, but can Evan and Cassie stop a feud that has taken on a life of its own? Conclusion to the Cassie Scot series.
What is real, and what is a mirage? Can something be a cost effective strategic option, or a fool's errand?
As outlined by our guests U.S. Naval War College Associate Professors James R. Holmes and Toshi Yoshihara in their latest work in the periodical Asian Security: An Ocean Too Far: Offshore Balancing in the Indian Ocean; the United States is beset by war weariness after over a decade of war and a half century plus of global commitments.
It is seductive to think of retiring from continental Eurasia, but if history calls us back - returning in times of systemic conflict would be problematic – even in the relatively accessible rimlands of Western Europe and East Asia.
In a part of the world with the planet's largest democracy - offshore balancing is close to impossible in the Indian Ocean.
As it turns out, offshore balancing in the Indian Ocean may be no balancing at all.

Sedes Sacrorum (Latin Sedes for seat/see, Sacrorum for holy) otherwise known as Santa Sede and the "SS" also known in English as "Holy See" refers to the legal apparatus as a whole by which the Roman Catholic Pope and its Curia of Bishops claim historical recognition as a sovereign entity with superior legal rights.
The Catholic Church uses two legal personalities with which to conduct its international affairs: the first is as an International State known as the Vatican City State, to which the Pope is the Head of Government. The second is as the supreme legal personality above all other legal personalities by which all property and "creatures" are subjects.
The Imperial State religion of Christianity, commonly known as "Christianity" was founded by Emperor Constantine I in 326 following the 1st Council of Nicaea (325). While technically extinct for nearly 800 years, the Christian Church was restored in the election of a leader consistent with the original doctrine and requirements from the time of Constantine in the election of Pope Francis on March 14th 2013.The official and motto was ordered to replace the previous motto of S·P·Q·R (which in Latin meant SENATUS POPULUS QUO REGNUM or “(The) Senate (of the) People Through Which (is) Rule”) on all official legion standards, buildings, documents and monuments. The order was largely ignore by the people in "Old" Rome and North Africa. The official standard of I·N·R·I is also where the saying "New Rome" originates to distinguish Constantinople from Rome.The word Nazi/Nasi dates back to the time of the Sanhedrin councils of Palestine first formed by the Romans in the 1st Century BCE. To members of modern Judaism.
It needs to be said, there are some incredible articles about masonry. But do you know where they are? Do you know how to retrieve them? It is a safe presumption to think the answer to both is woeful. If a mason is fortunate, articles will be passed on. If we wanted a repository of qualified work, send the brother to the collected papers of Ars Quaturo Coronati. In the 21st century we would send him to France where some have said we can find the best research in masonry.
Within our corridors if the Haggia Sophia exists, it is hidden in a maze of corners and dead ends. Like many, I once defended the process. The difficult search was a means to ensure dedicated masons found the knowledge. I think that was short sighted of me. If commitment to masonry means constant improvement, that entails bringing forward the best research, qualified analysis and verifiable facts for the education of those with an aptitude for learning.
Arguement about the point of masonry is baseless. In a sense, we can only make a person think; we cannot tell a person what to think. Masonry is a workers dream. A strong work ethic produces results. Obfuscation produces dust. Sounds from ancient times are carried on the winds. Wise men speak when they have something to say. Fools because they have to say something. (P) What we pick up is either a symphony or castastrophy. It helps to think of an opera. The chorus,well rehearsed and large and from that body of sound, rises a voice with more depth, more soul, more power than all the rest. Listen for that talent. Meanwhile, be the apprentice mason. Be receptive to others with skills you need to develop your talent. Practice. Rehearse. Commit.
Listen to the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. In our regular PANW reports we look at and analyze the recent open letter written by the newly-elected Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi on the task facing this North African state; the increasing instability threatening Tunisia from Libya where rebels in the post-Gaddafi state continue to their internecine warfare; the lawsuit that was filed by an African American man against the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) accusing the police of racial profiling leading to his arrest; and the ongoing struggle in Missouri to reclaim the just legacy of slain Michael Brown where one of his memorials were destroyed on Dec. 25. The second hour highlights the largest African slave rebellion in New Orleans in 1811 as well as the origins of the United States Women's Rights Movement in the Anti-Slavery Abolitionist struggles of the mid-19th century. The final segment reviews the historic 1951 student strike against school segregation in Prince Edward County, Virginia that was led by 17-year-old Barbara Johns.
The whole idea of having a “Unique Selling Proposition” (USP) as a service provider is quite exciting… until you actually try to create one. Technically speaking, creating a USP is actually pretty simple. Having that creation actually resonate with the marketplace, however, is much more difficult. Just because you’re the only photographer that takes wedding pictures while hopping on your left foot just isn’t going to bring the clients running now is it?
You can actually waste quite a bit of time and energy “uniquely positioning” your business in ways that no one (but you) actually cares about. It feels like you’re getting somewhere because you’re busy, but really, nothing is happening.
The Magic of The Platform
Look around at just about anyone with influence and you’ll most likely find, not too far away, a Platform of sorts that is powering that force.
Oprah had her TV show. Rush Limbaugh has the radio show. You can think of countless examples.
A Platform, very simply, is some sort of vehicle that distributes specific value to a specific group of people, consistently, over time. A Platform might be as simple as an email newsletter, or a podcast, or a print newsletter, or even a video series.
Now if the word “Platform” is new to you, don’t worry. I didn’t make up the concept. No one in this century (or the last few) did. It’s been around forever.
People who should listen to this show are entrepreneurs, career coaches
The adoption of the Declaration of Independence—237 years ago today—can sometimes feel like an event not just from another time, but from another world. As depicted in John Trumbull’s now-iconic 19th-century painting of the founding fathers in Philadelphia, collectively creating the framework for the nation’s revolutionary political system, such an act of open rebellion by prominent, wealthy and established figures is literally inconceivable to most living Americans.
The Revolutionary War, raging at that time, saw men young and old answer the Colonies’ call to fight the British redcoats. In their allegiance to the ideals of liberty, these rough troops — illustrated in countless paintings and drawings known to history students everywhere — shouldered the monumental task of defending a nation that was, in many respects, not yet truly born.
But as alien as that epoch might feel, time and again we’re reminded that the past is not always as distant as it so often seems.
In fact, some veterans who survived the Revolutionary War prospered well into their eighties, nineties and sometimes even beyond 100, living long enough to not only witness, but become part of, the era of the photograph.
First daguerreotypes, and then glass-plate negatives became popular in the 1840s and 1850s; by 1853, some 70 years after the great and improbable American victory over the British, more than 3 million daguerreotypes a year were being produced in the United States alone.
As these photographic means developed, and the generation that experienced the Revolution firsthand continued to dwindle, a desire to document these men — a rapidly vanishing, living link with history — emerged.

December 25, 2014 - LIVING A RICHER LIFE ~ Life Changing Talk Radio
THEME: Intimate Reflections on America’s Most Interesting Thoughts and Suspicions (Re-broadcast)
Couples from across the United States join the show’s hosts Earl Cobb and Dr. Charlotte Grant-Cobb to read and discuss their favorite dialogue from the new book, “Pillow Talk Consciousness: Intimate Reflections on America’s Most Interesting Thoughts and Suspicions.”
THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:
Pillow Talk Consciousness is a unique essay on America, its social & political challenges and the power of human consciousness. The book cleverly illustrates how our birthplace and the level of consciousness we obtain during our lives, eventually frame how we see ourselves, how we see others and how we see our world. It does this through a thoughtful collection of 100 entertaining, informative and provocative dialogues. Each dialogue is written to reflect commonly held thoughts and suspicions on topics that frame the lives and the conversations of average Americans in the 21st century. All are written with a candor that is expressed by the majority of Americans only in the safety and privacy of their own home, with a trusted partner and wrapped in a momentarily abnormal level of human consciousness. The topics range from education to family values; from war to politics and from music to motherhood. Join three couples from across the U.S. as they read and discuss their favorite dialogues and share your own thoughts.
THE MATTER of Christmas has become rather contentious in recent years. It needn’t be.
While Jesus almost certainly was not born on December 25 (see this video by Dr. Michael Heiser making the case for September 11, 3 B.C.), Christians should not be concerned about accidentally worshiping a pagan deity if they celebrate the birth of the Messiah on Christmas Day.
There is no scholarly evidence linking December 25 to the birth or worship of Nimrod and/or Tammuz
Christmas is not modified Saturnalia
Evidence suggests that a feast for the birth of Christ was celebrated in Egypt prior to 200 A.D.
Some Christians celebrated the birth of Jesus on December 25 decades before Aurelian chose the date as the birth of Sol Invictus in 274
Christians of the 4th century did not acknowledge a pagan origin for the celebration of Christmas (the idea did not appear in Christian writings until the 12th century)
December 25th may have been chosen because it was nine months after March 25th, the Feast of the Annunciation celebrating the conception of Jesus
Here is the takeaway: Those who choose to celebrate Christmas and those who are restrained by their conscience from celebrating the day are correct. See Romans 14:
One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. The one who observes the day, observes it in honor of the Lord. The one who eats, eats in honor of the Lord, since he gives thanks to God, while the one who abstains, abstains in honor of the Lord and gives thanks to God. (Romans 14:5-6 ESV)
Be satisfied in your own mind. If you keep the holiday, or if you do not, then do it for the Lord and may He richly bless you and your family.
