    Green Bay Packers report card 2015 - Special Teams

    in Sports

    The NFL changed the extra point to be equivelant to a 32 yard field goal. Only five teams went through the season without missing an extra point. Mason Crosby converted all 36 of his extra points, and made 86% of his field goal attempts. He also converted four of five fields goals from beyond 50 yards. 


    Changing field position is a key component of the punting game. When a drive ends, the punter has the ability to pin the opposing team inside the 20, or flip the field position to help the defense. Tim Matshay struggled with consistency throughout the year. His gross average of 43.9 ranked 24th, but his 40.2 net average ranked 13th. Matshay benefited from good special team tackling which can mask a poor punt. He only placed 18 punts inside the 20 yard line and 14 punts rolled into the end zone for touchbacks.

    Eccl. 12:1-8 THE DAYS OF OUR LIVES

    in Spirituality

    Intro:  Ill. Soap Operas.  After the theme music has played for a moment, one has an announcer who says, “Like sands through the hour glass, so are the days of our lives.”  Now, I am not sure of all the philosophical aspects of that statement, but a couple of profound truths are clearly implied.  First, life is short.  Second, life is filled with many changes. Both of those statements is true.  Life is short.  This is the testimony of Scripture, James 4:14; Job 7:6-7; 14:1-2; Psalm 39:5; 89:47. And, Life is also very eventful. Some of the happenings of life are good and others are not so good.  Also, what happens to me might not happen to you.But, it is safe to say that there are some things that will happen to each and every person in the world!  In this passage, Solomon mentions three events that will take place in the life of every person in this room.  Since life is so short and since this is material we all need to hear, I want to point out these three common events today.  I want to preach for a few minutes on The Days Of Our LIVES!

    The Classic Khmer Adventure On Wheels-Cambodia's Bamboo Train

    in Travel

    I was staying in Battambang, Cambodia. While I was there I had to visit one of the area’s most famous attractions, the bamboo train. The bamboo train gets it’s name from the  bamboo deck or floorboard used that rests on top of the wheels that can transport anything from chickens and rice to people. In Khmer it’s called a Lorry and has been used since the Khmer Rouge shutdown of most regular train service in the country.  


    The Bamboo Train Station. Now where is the first class lounge? I could use a bloody mary about right now! Waiter?  Actually the place is quite charming and surprisingly not touristy feeling at all. At least not at the starting point in O Dambong, about 4 km from Battambang.


    The bamboo train solves the biggest problem of a single track train line. What do you do when two trains meet from opposite directions? In the case of the bamboo train? Simple-move one off the track. This experience alone makes this one of the world’s all time great train rides.


    A little heavy on the photo gear I know but I’m a one man show right now.


    Farewells from the departure crew and we’re off. 


    The bamboo train was not the first flatbed type service in Cambodia. During the civil war of the 80’s and 90’s flatbed trains were used as mine sweepers ahead of the rest of the train. Service was free, risky but popular. 


    And here we go about 3 minutes into the ride and our first stop. Wow, now that’s taking service station to the next level. The first lorries or bamboo trains were actually hand driven with a pole, kind of like an Italian gondola. Small motorcycle or tractor engines, like this one were added later. The wheels? They’re actually from abandoned tanks! Yes get your ass off the deck so I can do my job, thank you! Excerpts from "Great Train Rides Of The World-Cambodia's Bamboo Train".

    Racial Insecurity: Is The Race Card Being Overused?

    in Podcasting

    Do you feel like people, of all races, are quick to pull the race card? Are Caucasians too sensitive when Blacks choose to celebrate their culture? Are Blacks too sensitive when Caucasians don't acknowledge them on a level that they acknowledge themselves? Will there ever be an equal playing field?


    Join us, Thursday, February 11th at 10 PM, as we discuss these issues on Grown Folk Talk Radio.

    Can You Withstand The Waves?

    in Christianity

    Losing a loved one is very painful and tough. Unless you've personally gone through it yourself, it's challenging to comfort the grieving. Offering biblical scriptures seem trite, and saying "Call me if you need me" seems cliche; some may rather take the silent approach and say nothing at all... less is more. On the other hand if you're the one who has lost someone you may find yourself asking... "Why's" and "What's"? 


    Why did this person have to die?


    Why not me?


    What's the point of life anyway?


    What is God doing?


    Is there really a God watching over us?


    These are all tough questions and we believe the Word of God has the answers. But we have a question for you...


    Can You Withstand The Waves?

    Here Comes the Judge2

    in Christianity

    THE SOLUTION TO SIN IS TRUE REPENTANCE. As the journey continues through the book of Judges, Pastor Michael Crow and Minister Carnita Smith will point out the relapes in sin of the Israelites because of their disobedience which results in defeat. God raises up judges/deliverers Othniel, Ehud and Shamgar to deliver them out of the hands of their enemy. We serve a God of mercy, a God who delivers and a God that hears the cry of his children. Judges 3:9 "But when they cried out to the Lord, he raised up for them a deliverer..."

    Black Thoughts and Theory: The Radio Show- The Trans Saharan Slave Trade

    in Politics

    What Do You Know About The Trans Saharan Slave Trade?


     


    Why do we always talk about slavery as if it is a Black and White issue? The reality is that the Arabs have held Black slaves from around 800 AD to this very day, with no end in sight. This abuse of our people by the Arabs and Muslims is a well kept "secret" that must be exposed. How deep does this sickness run? Well, I don't know, but I do know that Arabs use a word "abd" to refer to Blacks, Africans, and slaves without distinction. In other words, if you are Black, they call you a slave.


     


    Join Alex Primo and Asha Zuri Thursday, February 11 at 9 pm EST (6 pm PST, 7 pm MST, 8 pm CST) as we explore, dissect, and discuss the horror and devastating travesty that we call the Trans Saharan Slave Trade. A trade that caused the death of millions of our Melanated brothers and sisters. A despicable assault that castrated our brothers and turned our women into sex-slaves. You do not want to miss this episode.


     


    Plus the brother Dennis Jefferson will be dropping by with another highly informative Healthy Matters update.
