    John Carver Show - Weapons of Our Warfare

    in Self Help

    This is a sermon I shared on April 24, 2016 while my youngest daughter, Juliana, was at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore Maryland for a bone marrow transplant.  Some of what I share, in this sermon, includes:

    There have been MANY Ancient weapons that have been used over the centuries.

    Land mines are explosive devices planted in the ground, and have been used in conflicts all over the world. During the Mongol invasion of China in the 13th century, Chinese inventors came up with the “Underground Sky Soaring Thunder”, a land mine so terrifyingly titled, it’s name alone should’ve been enough to force armies into retreat.

    The tenth century fire lance (or lightweight hand cannon) fired shrapnel at the enemy from a long bronze or iron tube small enough to be carried by a soldier.

    There were psychological attempts at warfare like those used by Sun Tzu (The Art of War):

    “All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when we are able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must appear inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.”

    2 Corinthians 10 - New Living Translation (NLT)

    Strategic warfare does not happen by accident.  Life has a way of attacking you and trying to stop you in your track by design.

    Mindfulness in the Workplace & Retirement Account Portability

    in Business

    On this week's program, the hosts talk with guests from eMindful and Millennium Trust Company on issues related to mindfulness, retirement and more.

    The first guest is Kevin Renner, SVP of marketing and product management for eMindful. Employers are facing a new crisis: The proliferation of stress, burnout, obesity and other chronic conditions at unprecedented levels among their employees. In the span of 12 months recently, the percentage of U.S. employees reporting they were stressed at work jumped from 73 to 83 percent, according to the Work Stress Survey conducted by Harris Interactive. Among the most innovative developments in behavioral wellness and holistic well-being today is the application of evidence-based mindfulness training to stress and other modifiable health cost drivers facing employers. A burgeoning body of scientific research has demonstrated that mindfulness is highly effective in improving behavioral health and chronic diseases. In this interview, we will discuss some of the latest findings with Kevin, who has worked in the mindfulness field with eMindful since 2010.

    The second guest on the program this week will be Terry Dunne, SVP and managing director of Rollover Solutions Group at Millennium Trust Company. Employees in health care tend to switch jobs frequently; they need portability of their retirement benefits to help ensure that they can save well for their retirement. This topic touches on a critical public policy goal of preserving assets for retirement savings. For Americans, there is approximately $25 trillion earmarked for retirement. This includes DC, DB, government entities and IRAs. There are over 630,000 DC plans with over 90 million participants – many DB plans and government-type plans. IRAs now hold over $7 trillion in assets. The issue ties to every industry, health care included. What should Americans be doing to enhance their retirement years?

    Our Visit 2 Amalgam Comics, Daredevil 2, Luke Cage Trailer & more The Grind@6pm

    in Politics Conservative

    Harambee with a side order of cornbread, greens and salad (healthy!!) to our every expanding and loyal audience! Our regularly scheduled Saturday broadcast was preempted due to our appearance at the first annual Blackfinity Gauntlet podcast meetup held at the world famous Amalgam Comics in Philadelphia, PA.  But we are BACK and ready to discuss Blerd/Geek/Bleek matters today at 6pm EST.  Listen to your Podcast Enterprise Crew (Capt. Kirk, Claire Lanay, Dburt and The "Uncanny Daryll B.) as they unravel this week's latest pulp flavored topics: giving our impressions/highlights of the Blackfinity meet and greet in Philly;  Netflix' Daredevil, Season 2 makes it way to your Wi-Fi platform of choice; and speaking of Netflix, we finally get a skosh of the Luke Cage imprint, scheduled for release in September; The Root has a piece likening Marvel/Netflix' Iron Fist to Tarzan. 

    British Man of Steel (or is that UNCLE), Henry Cavill visits NYC's Time Square and goes unnoticed (wearing a Superman "t"); Ta-nehisi Coates' Black Panther #1 has 300K in pre-order sales (whoa...and the swag is forthcoming); with Jeremy Renner intimating that he would be open to a Hawkeye Netflix series, is the streaming service going to be the waystation for every other Marvel imprint?  And what Marvel IP could be worthy of a series? (where's DC's streaming service analog?).  Lastly, The Mission's Joseph Illidge affirms that he does not need a Miles Morales to appear in the highly anticipated Captain America: Civil War. 

    My eyes cross water to the gift of a symbol. It is a statue which represents freedom won at the cost of death...and while my studies in philosophy render such  a concept false, my experience with the nature of man dictates that fallacy is often truth-Shang-Chi

    John Carver Show - What we have is a GIFT!

    in Self Help

    This is a semron I shared on February 21, 2016.  It is the week that Irina (Our daugther's Kristina and Juliana birth mother) is in town to donate bone marrow for a bone marrow transplant for Juliana who has been fighting cancer since 2007.  In this sermon I don't go into great details about this week the theme is very important to all of us.

    We were all given,earned and taught things that can help other people.  Some of what I share includes:

    I remember some people congratulating my camera for taking a good photograph.  They forget it’s the person using the camera as a tool to take a good photograph.

    Often times, people get a “big head” (stuck up) when their gift, used by God, gets attention.


    Jesus, also, understood that he was a Gift to the world.  I will come back to that thought later.

    So often people forget the gifts that others have given them.

    Sometimes I forget that my mother was given a heart.  I am, POSITIVE, the family of the gift giver has NEVER forgotten.

    There is much more I share in this sermon...
