Join hosts Tom Riddell and guest co-host Bobbi Hughes-Millman as they welcome author Cristi Taijeron to The Writers Lounge. Sit back and relax as Cristi discusses what it's like to be a writer and she will also talk to us about her book: QUEEN OF MY NIGHTMARE- UNCHARTED SECRETS-BOOK 2
I didn't want to be a pirate, but there are times one must do undesirable things in order to survive.
Under Mason Bentley’s black flag, I ended up finding more than just the refuge I was seeking. He taught me to fight, inspired me to navigate, and by the time we reached Tortuga I was drawing maps so fine I could sell them. No longer a weeping, helpless woman, I took hold of my courage to face the cursed world that wished to punish me for witchcraft. Strong, rich, and free, I finally claimed my throne in this kingdom of thieves, but it was the love I shared with their king that cursed me with a burden I was not strong enough to bear. What good was it to be a queen if the only dominion I held was over a nightmare?

I just popped on an article on msm, from Popular Science about how we will die on Mars one day!
It is a very dramatic title, and rather lengthy, but I will take a shot at it and share the article and also what I may think about it.
What do you think of Living on Mars or the Ideas of it by 2020?
Well maybe if we would stop fucking with the environment here, on earth we would not need new horizons all the time to go to after all the damage on Planet Earth!
This is an idea that's mostly dead at this point, but it stil lurches along in some form or another. The idea that THE IDEA of THE CHARACTER is the most important aspect of creation. From Stan Lee's cookie cutter origins, to Rob Liefeld's endless string of #1's in the 90's to the idea of "Original Character, don't steal!"
My thoughts on this subject and why it frustrates and repulses me. Today I'll be joined by Joe Diesel of the half hour of power fame as we discuss this concept.
Join us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! as Scott interviews two Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas authors, Buck Storm and Karen Campbell Prough.
Buck Storm grew up in Yuma, Arizona—a true son of the American Southwest. He's marked time as a commercial diver, fisherman, sailor, and musician. As a singer/songwriter and purveyor of tales, he's bounced around the planet with a guitar and a pocketful of stories and has made friends in venues across the country. Whether lyrics or prose, Buck writes about this mixed-up, out of control, beautiful cacophony we call humanity. Buck and his wife Michelle have a happy love story, a hideout in North Idaho, and two wonderful children. The Miracle Man is his first novel.
Karen Campbell Prough grew up with a love for old books and steadfast characters. She spent some of her childhood entertaining younger brothers with short stories created by a wild imagination. She and her husband Edward have often camped in the Georgia Mountains, and there she placed the characters of her first book, The Girl Called Ella Dessa.
The closest the Supreme Court has come to embracing the anti-humiliation principle is through its use of the term “dignity.” This link should be intuitive—what, after all, is the opposite of “humiliation” but “dignity”? Ackerman recognizes this nexus, but his discussion of it is tantalizingly brief.26 He acknowledges that the link between human dignity and the anti-humiliation principle may be unfamiliar to American constitutional lawyers, given that, in contrast to other jurisdictions, our constitutional traditions are built around the concepts of equality and liberty.
Warren was simply calling upon judges, and the rest of us, to make common-sense judgments about the prevailing meaning of social practices. One of the greatest legal thinkers of the era, Karl Llewellyn, persuasively argued that judges couldn’t decide the most humdrum case without relying on this capacity, which he famously called “situation-sense.”It was Louis Brandeis, not Thurgood Marshall, who first used social science to convince courts to consider the real-world impact of their doctrines. As early as 1908, the Supreme Court relied heavily on his famous “Brandeis Brief” in upholding maximum-hours laws for women. During the following decades, the law schools became centers of sociological and economic critique of the regnant legal formalism The Anti-Humiliation Principle and Same-Sex Marriage Kenji Yoshino
