Letter jackets, line names, party lines, step shows, and popularity. These are the most coveted vanities that college students long for during their undergraduate tenure. I was certainly one who wanted such a lifestyle. Last year around September I saw a DVD series by Elder G. Craig Lewis called the Truth Behind Hip Hop which breaks down the true agenda of Hip Hop and R&B music through the word of God. During the series he began to talk about how my personal walk with God was being contaminated and jeopardized by wanting to associate myself with Greek life. How you ask? Well, let’s see what the word of God says about this.

Present Day Idolatry Right under Our Nose

In Exodus 20:3-5 God says, “You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself any idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship Read more…

September 8, 2012 Comments off

nydailynews

A terrifying tornado touched down briefly in Queens and Brooklyn Saturday  morning, destroying property, disrupting plans and terrifying residents all over  the city.

A black tunnel cloud accompanied by howling winds screamed into south  Brooklyn and Queens at around 11 a.m., with reports of the potent storm hitting  the ground on the Rockaway Peninsula and Carnarsie.

“I saw a big gray cloud coming and ran to my basement with my son,” said  Diane Tye, 36, an office manager from Breezy Point who scooped up her son Dylan,  2, and ran to her house when she saw the tunnel cloud approach.

Biometrics: Those Tell-Tale Signs That Say Who You Are

April 24, 2012 Comments off

sciencedaily.com

ScienceDaily (Apr. 23, 2012) — Forget about fingerprints or iris recognition; the way you walk or move your hands, even your pulse, can be analysed for unique characteristics. EU-funded researchers are looking at ways this new technology could protect your security and make identity checking less obtrusive and more accurate.

You might think that PIN codes and fingerprints are pretty secure identity systems, but they are in fact simple to hack. The criminal community has found it too easy to steal PIN numbers just using cameras, card copiers or the point of a knife at the cash point. And James Bond famously tricked an adversary to believing his false identity by wearing ‘fake fingerprints’.

The use of biometric identification — using the unique properties and characteristics of an individual to help identify them — continues to grow in popularity. Modern electronic passport checks use face recognition, and iris scanning has also been tested in some airports.

Recognising the growing market fo Read more…

TORONTO—Penny pinchers in Canada may soon turn their attention to nickels and dimes given the news in the country’s federal budget that just came down: pennies are being discontinued.

“Given its declining purchasing value, some Canadians consider the penny more of a nuisance than a useful coin,” notes the announcement that came with the publication of budget.

Credit, debit, and electronic transactions will keep exact purchase prices, but cash transactions will round prices that end in 3 cents up to 5 cents, and round prices that end in 2 cents down to zero.

While the Royal Canadian Mint will stop producing the penny, the coin will Read more…

Saudi Arabia And China Team Up To Build A Gigantic New Oil Refinery – Is This The Beginning Of The End For The Petrodollar?

March 23, 2012 3 comments

 The largest oil exporter in the Middle East has teamed up with the second largest consumer of oil in the world (China) to build a gigantic new oil refinery and the mainstream media in the United States has barely even noticed it.  This mammoth new refinery is scheduled to be fully operational in the Red Sea port city of Yanbu by 2014.  Over the past several years, China has sought to aggressively expand trade with Saudi Arabia, and China now actually imports more oil from Saudi Arabia than the United States does.  In February, China imported 1.39 million barrels of oil per day from Saudi Arabia.  That was 39 percent higher than last February.  So why is this important?  Well, back in 1973 the United States and Saudi Arabia agreed that all oil sold by Saudi Arabia would be denominated in U.S. dollars.  This petrodollar system was adopted by almost the entire world and it has Read more…
