    Finding love in the digital age

    in Relationships

     


     


    Finding "the one" is a centuries-old quest; but neither Adam nor Eve had to log in to an app to make a love connection, and Tarzan found Jane without ever having to swipe left. And though Romeo and Juliet certainly had their share of obstacles, losing a WiFi connection was never one of them.


    If you’re looking for love, you have probably heard that many people are using Facebook, Skype, IM, Chat, Second Life, Tinder and other on-line dating apps/sites to connect with a current or hopefully new love!  So, this begs to ask, is love in the digital age as fun, flirty and exciting as traditional friendships and relationships? Can finding love on-line lead to a long lasting and committed relationship or is it just a recipe for disaster.


    Tune in to our inaugural episode, Friday, June 12, 2015 @ 9pm where we will explore these questions and talk to people who have managed to find love online.

    Sixers will be a dynasty ... in a decade

    in Basketball

    Everyone is focused on the NBA Finals, and with good reason. But there are 28 other teams in the NBA, each with a plan to get where the Cavs and Warriors are right now.


    And if I told you the Sixers had the best plan of them all, would you believe me? Vinny DelNegro and Joel Meyers of Sirius XM NBA Radio were skeptical when the subject came up in this interview, especially when I said that a decade from now we'll be taking about a dynasty in Philly.


    A dynasty?


    Well, yes.


    And as I told DelNegro when he questioned my prediction, it will not take a decade for the Sixers to be contending for championships. It'll take five years -- maybe less. And that is why 10 years from now, we'll be talking dynasty. It's what happens in years 6-10 that'll move the discussion to that next level.


    Why?


    Everyone likes to poke fun at Sam Hinkie these days, calling him the best tank driver since Michael Dukakis. But they used to say similar things about Sam Presti, who tanked and put together a core of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and James Harden that should have won multiple championships by now if now for the ill-advised decision to trade Harden rather than max him out.


    But Presti was having to operate under a tight salary cap, which is something Hinkie will not have to deal with. By the time Nerlens Noel, Joel Embiid, Dario Saric and others finish their rookie scale contracts, the salary cap will be well over $100 million -- and teams will be able to carry at least three max players on their roster. If Hinkie plays his cards right, he'll have a core of five or six studs to build with over the next half-decade and beyond. Nobody has ever built a team this way, and by the time it is all said and done, Hinkie will be in the Hall of Fame. Mark my words on that, because you heard it here first.

    The View Up Here dispels "Sound Economic Management" of Harper's debacle decade

    in Politics

    The carefully crafted messaging from the Corporate Pacification Committee and Emperor Harper to convince Canadians all is well under their "Strong, stable economic stewardship" is the longest enduring falsehood from this decade of misdirection. Ontarians were well familiar with Jim Flaherty's parlour tricks before he became the Minister of Finance in Ottawa. The CPC minority managed to burn through annual surpluses before the 2008 disaster. To this day they deny Canadian chartered banks received a bail-out, despite the evidence to the contrary. The bluster and advertising saturation of the multi-year "Economic Action Plan" has little to show for it besides a large hole in the national debt. And a few very rich advertisers.


    Hundreds of millions of tax dollars spent on partisan television ads, barely visited websites masquerading as "Government" instead of CPC rabble-rousing, photo ops for the chosen few sycophants of the Privy Council and defending unconstitutional laws against the citizens of Canada. This is economic stewardship?


    The worst military procurement programs in the history of the nation, the worst treatment of veterans in the history of the nation, the worst treatment of Parliament in the history of the nation. All in the name of an agenda bent on changing Canada forever. Over 3 BILLION dollars unaccounted for from a supposed "Public Safety" budget. Gazebos are expensive. Billions more budgeted but not spent, returning it to the Treasury where it cannot be accurately tracked.


    We will look back at these travesties using history and exposure from some fine Canadians who see the lies. I will quote them verbatim giving credit where credit is due. In October it is time to end the biggest lie of all. That the CPC can manage our money.

    RESCUE RADIO "Because There Is A War For Your Soul" Nothing boring or too political or super spiritual. Just probably some of the most revolutionary and useful information you will find on radio. Join us live Tuesdays at 10AM CST or catch us on the run.


    It’s time to talk straight about the war between God and Satan that is going on in our souls. And though the battle is the Lord’s and has already been won, the Enemy still seems to have a lot to say that has left too many of us doubtful and confused about what is going on and what can be done about it. It is time to talk back and tell it like it is!


    Hosted by Marjorie Cole, founder of Life Recovery, Inc., and author of “Taking the Devil to Court” with Jarry Cole, Pastor of True Light Church as the featured guest pastor and roving co-host. Special Guests include youth leaders, spiritual leaders, health and nutrition advocates, experts in the new age, giants, the Bible, and numerous other subjects relevant to the perilous times in which we find ourselves.


    Along with a team of warfare specialists Jarry and Marjorie will offer you an opportunity to find real answers to tough questions. Jesus told us it would get dark and difficult in the days before His return. He told us not to be deceived. Rescue Radio is here to help you sort through the lies and respond to the spiritual challenges of serving Jesus Christ in this desperately wicked world.

    Breaking the Chains.....Our Lives, Our Pain Re-Imagined

    in Motivation

    The "I have a dream speech by Martin L.King debuted in Detroit over fifty years ago on June 23, 1963 and changed the course of this nation, and re-imagined what was possible. Born that same year on July 23rd, I recently celebrated my 52nd Birthday, and realize that my life has been engulfed inside the Civil Rights, and parallels closely with the transformation I endured causing me to re-imagine the little black girl born in 1963 also,


    Today we are sharing about the healing that must occur between these two cultures that caused such strong divisional lines of hatred, distrust, and pain merely based on skin tone. Although our nation has become much more diverse and Civil Rights are being fought for so many more, we still have a core pain in cities across the nation that still reek with the racial tension of the past.


    Today, let's look at racial reconciliation and find ways to re-imagine ourselves, our cities and our nation.


    What's possible for us today should we have dialogue about the pain we have both experienced? Our featured guest, poet and author Alicea Davis has a special message for healing our communities and racial reconciliation. Join me as she shares what she has re-imagined for us here in Detroit, and the work she's doing to close the gap in our consciousness so we see ourselves anew - as citizens of the same family. May we all remember our Divine heritage, our spiritual birthrights, and co-creative powers for creating a miraculous world.


    Let's re-imagine our self-image, re-create our belief in everyone's worthiness, and choose to live in excellent communities that flourish abundantly with knowledge, intelligence and resources to be self-sustaining.
