Sunday School - Be a volunteer!

By kpbell3, published on Jun 25, 2007

...“under-6” set, I learned a lot just by preparing and studying their lessons each week. There are several things to consider when leading children’s Sunday School; things that will make you feel more at ease and give the children an opportunity to learn in a fun and safe environment. DO THE LESSON YOURSELF – How hard was the story? Could you follow it easily? Were the crafts for that lesson too hard? Could little hands handle it easily? If something is confusing to you, chances are it will be to the children as well. Reword the story or make adaptations to... (more)

Wedges Wobble!

By Carrie C. House, published on Jun 22, 2007

... This style of shoe certainly has its 1970’s historical ancestor the platform shoe to thank. But the difficulty today’s’ women find is that platform shoes are often chunky and while they don’t accessorize well with the chic looks of ruffled skirts or business suits, they are certainly not going to cut it in a professional working environment. Wedges give every outfit a more feminine look for women that want both a little heel, a lot of comfort, and god forbid, some confidence as they walk that they won’t break their heel off, weeble, wobble, or fall down! (more)

Where is the revolution?

By Meegsiller, published on Jun 21, 2007

...before counting votes, damn it even before know who is actually going to represent each part of the population, we have them (candidates) biting their asses progressively in public debates, while the media (and I am guilty of charge) builds a gigantic circus around it, growing a huge morbid environment that by historical records we know that ends up getting nasty. The amusing part in all this is that we don’t seem to fully understand what happens every four years or 2 or even every year, when it comes to elect those who are supposed to be our representatives based in our... (more)

A Nation Always One Step From Mourning

By Frank J Hopkins, published on Jun 19, 2007

...make for our children if not ourselves a world where disappointment can be bargained away by prescriptions,where we must use only safe and agreeable language...where the illusion of fairness and kindness must be maintained even if the reality is vastly different. Have we created the perfect environment where our children and their's will no longer be able to cope with the disappointment and meanness that is a part of life and a necessary part that must be experienced in order for growth to occur. It is oft times that we measure ourselves by the actions of others and it is by that measuring ... (more)

The Fire Worshippers

By Crowbar, published on Jun 3, 2007

...what we believe, no matter what religion we follow, that underneath it all we have never given up the worship and dominance of fire in our lives. However long we have been on this planet, we have failed to do one thing that every other animal is capable of doing and that is to adapt to our environment. We hail the concepts of evolution, but we failed to evolve ourselves into a being able to survive in a world that has a fragile ecosystem. Through the use of fire, we allowed ourselves to gain warmth and protection, instead of growing fur and claws. By cooking our food, we stopped growing ... (more)

Metro-Makeouts

By Kitresa, published on May 30, 2007

... them, or even dawn on them that their love fest was obnoxious (as most public displays of affection are) but inconsiderate. The above examples are not the only occasions in which I have witnessed such public displays of affection, I find it to be a frequent occurrence despite the uninviting environment. It’s as if these couples are standing there saying “Oh, the smell of urine and all this garbage on the ground is so romantic!” “Hey look, a rat! This moment keeps getting better and better.” “Now all we need is a homeless man asking for change to... (more)

Antennas

By Ronald Hobbs, published on May 26, 2007

Antennas We live in a time when the Radio Frequency (RF) environment is becoming increasingly congested. In order for radio signals to travel they require antennas. As I tap this out, the antenna on my computer is exchanging information with an access point, that point is connected by more antennas to what we have come to know as the internet. Television viewing, radio listening, require antennas as do wireless telephonephones, as do cordless telephones. We cannot put an exact time when the aeriel first appeared, but, conveniently, let us say with Marconi at the beginning of the twentieth... (more)

How Many Film Festivals Can There Possibly Be?

By Batman, published on May 25, 2007

...Or, as I fear, maybe there are too many people attempting to make movies. Case in point: Has anyone started watching On The Lot? If you're not a filmmaker like myself, the answer is probably a resounding, "No!" The process of making a movie is tedious for the most part, and not prone to the environment that it's all that interesting to watch someone else do, either. So, for the uninitiated, and terminally bored that have read this far, I can tell you that they've already had to make a 2 1/2 minute movie in 24 hours, and the ones that made the cut after that, have to make a one minute film ... (more)

Climbing the Ladder with Literacy

By Deleted User, published on May 24, 2007

...Martinez wasn’t interested in remaining in that comfortable world. He knew he had to do more to get ahead. “I was cleaning cars, I really enjoyed doing that, but I believe everybody looks forward to moving on and trying to do different things,” he said. “In the environment where I was working, I used to speak Spanish all the time. Without English, it’s very difficult to get things going, to get a job.” A new life in America meant new opportunities; Martinez was here for that one reason. He was chasing the American Dream, and the only thing... (more)
