Men And Brethren What Shall We Do?

Knowledge is powerful and its application most profitable. Knowing the impact names have on your life is one thing and doing something about it is another. You have the choice to choose life or death, choose life that you may live. This article stresses the need for you to exercise the power at your disposal to determine how names impact your destiny.Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? - Acts 2:37 (NKJV)I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing:...

PUBLIC SERVICE ESSAY: How to Recognize and Survive the Approach of a Serial Killer

(“There are two kinds of serial killers as far as the victim is concerned: the kind that you don't see before they pounce on you and the kind you see and don't expect to pounce on you.There are many more serial killers living outside the prison walls than inside."Pat Brown)The expression,"serial killer", denotes the word, 'serial', which means, successful killer .Ted Bundy said that he often wore his arm in a sling to perfectly trap random compassionate women, who traveled to his car door to assist him with his theatrical 'struggle' with packages.These outgoing, caring women were brutally clubbed into his trunk for later torture.Serial...

3 Deer Resistant Herbs

One of our customers asked me what herbs will deter damage caused by deer. I empathized with her because we all face the little critters that dine free in our gardens and deer are a nuisance in the garden. I told her she could minimize their damage by planting deer resistant herbs. You will be surprised at how many herbs are considered 'deer resistant'! You will have no trouble keeping deer out of the garden!There are many and I will write about them as time goes by.  However, here are three good ones and you can get the seed and plant them in the fall and they will be ready for protecting next year’s garden.  Each week I will try..

Bravo to Alex Tsipras and the Greeks!

"You cannot keep on squeezing countries that are in the midst of depression." President Barack Obama“The humanitarian impact has been colossal—40 percent of children now live in poverty, infant mortality is sky-rocketing and youth unemployment is close to 50 percent…?Right now, the Greek government is being asked to put a gun to its head and pull the trigger…The collateral damage will kill the Eurozone as a beacon of hope, democracy and prosperity, and could lead to far-reaching economic consequences across the world.”  Thomas Piketty, Jeffrey Sachs, Heiner Flassbeck, Dani Rodrik, Simon Wren-Lewis*There’s a great blues song “Nobody.

Fragile Giants

MY appointment with the doctor was scheduled at 3pm Friday the 10th. Overall, hospital isn't always a place I love visiting all my life. I remembered I was hospitalized when I had my first baby by caesarean section for 5 days long and then the second one in a private clinic also a caesarean birth and a 5-day admission. Those years !So, while waiting my number to be called, my eyes could randomly screen some sick and old people who were being pushed in a wheelchair by their son or husband or a maid or their daughter into the doctor's room. The scene gave me some kind of misery but also some inner inspiration for today's writing.As I was...

PRAYERSHIP

PRAYERSHIP  By Ivan PetryshynThe Priest came to the Alterator, kneeled down to revere and to send his vitals, touched the space with the Sign, there raised a pilot’s armchair, the monitor lit, there appeared the Book of the Books,the chapter, the page, the verse, the letters merged, the Vector of Trajectory appeared in front.

The vectorizational configuration of the ship, the Formula of the Permissions, the determining of the accessibility, the acceptance of the Limits, the Oration for the Universal Balancing, the delineation of the ship and the...

"Boot-less Lucas" at the Battle of Columbus: the Last Battle Fought in the U.S.

When, at 4:20 on the morning of March 9, 1916, a Camp Furlong adjunct pounded on the door of First Lieutenant John Porter Lucas, commander of the 13th Cavalry Regiment’s machine gun troop, he was sound asleep and dreaming. It took several seconds to realize where he was and leap out of bed. It took another moment to shake off his somnolence and get his bearings. In the meantime, the adjunct continued pounding and shouting, “Lucas! Get up!” In the dark, he stumbled to the door and yanked it open.Cavalry Officers“We’re under attack!” the shadowy figure in the doorway shouted. “Get your machine guns! Hurry!”“What is it?” Lucas stammered,...

Operating a Screen Zombie

Gary had just loaded his tanker with 8500 gallons of gasoline at Port Everglades, near Fort Lauderdale. At 5:30 AM, the traffic was not bad yet on northbound I-95. He was nearly past Fort Lauderdale when the truck lost power.A quick look at the gauges on the dashboard told him that the engine was still running. It would not pull the load at full speed, though. Gary flipped on his four-way flashers and steered onto the narrow shoulder of the highway as the truck continued to lose speed.Air hissed under the truck as Gary set the parking brakes. He assessed his situation. The engine would run at idle speed with no problem. He could shut it off..

Fear Not for I Am With Thee

Although the human mind is capable of entertaining almost any hypothesis in theory, an extreme concept that is the unequivocal antithesis of our intrinsically fueled belief system, may, by its fantastical profundity, be rejected outright as "unbelievable;" despite any weight of evidence in its favor. One example of this human inability to acceptance may be observed in the spontaneous disbelief oft times displayed to accounts of "other worldly alien encounters." The methods of avoidance we use in this instance are analogous to the methods we employ toward any chillingly disturbing testimony. This can be attested to in recent History by the...
