Utah parents kill their 2 children before themselves after believing mom had terminal disease. A couple who recently moved from Switzerland to Utah planned a murder-suicide that left their family of four dead in November after they believed the mother was suffering from a terminal disease, a new police report stated. Jessica Griffith, 43, believed she had ovarian cancer and texted her husband Timothy Griffith on Oct. 25, 2017, about picking a “good time to leave” so they would be together and “love for eternity,” the police report made public on Wednesday stated. The family was found dead on November 9, 2017, after neighbors became concerned when their car didn’t move for a few days, People reported. The family died just a few months after they moved to Mapleton, Utah, from Switzerland. An autopsy, however, found Jessica Griffith was healthy before she died, Mapleton police Chief John Jackson said Thursday. It's not clear why she spoke extensively with her husband about her pain and sent him links to ovarian cancer websites, he said. People reported Timothy Griffith was researching mass shootings, guns and sleeping pills online. "We wish we knew the answer to that," Jackson said. Police believe the couple put sleeping pills in hot chocolate before the mother and the children drank the beverage. The family was eating fondue and played a game of Uno before the murder-suicide. Timothy used a pistol to shoot his sedated wife, her 16-year-old daughter and the couple's 5-year-old son, Alexendre Griffith, along with the family’s German shepherd before killing himself. The couple had met and married in Switzerland. Timothy was American, but had moved to Europe after meeting his first Swiss wife when she was a high school exchange student, according to his family. Timothy and Jessica were both married when they met and ended their previous marriages acrimoniously. Jessica had her daughter, Samantha Badel, with her previous husband. Jessica had cut ties with her Swiss relatives after saying she was abused as a child, though her family denies that, Jackson said. Friends told police that Timothy had also had rough childhood experiences. After the two married, Timothy's relationship with his children from his first marriage grew distant as he became violent with them, his ex-wife told police. The family moved to Mapleton, about 55 miles south of Salt Lake City, for Timothy's job with Nestle. Neighbors said the daughter only spoke French, making it hard for her to make friends at her high school. Police believe the couple was having marital problems before they died. Text messages showed they spoke about money problems and intimate marital woes. The police report stated Timothy was contacting women on Craigslist. Jessica proposed celebrating Christmas early last year by telling the children she had to go to the hospital. Spending time around the Christmas tree would help them the children "leave in peace and joy," she said. Timothy worried his teenage stepdaughter might sense something was strange but agreed, the police report said. Before the couple carried out the murder-suicide, they contacted their former spouses and family members. Jessica Griffith apparently tried to mask her involvement in the planning by deleting texts, the report said.

Parents of Trayvon Martin make morning show rounds: Absolutely stunned at verdict
The parents of Trayvon Martin made the morning show rounds. They spoke with Charlie Rose and Norah O'Donnell on CBS this morning. "Trayvon was a fun-loving child. He was our child. We miss him dearly," Tracy Martin said Thursday on "CBS This Morning." "To have your child's life taken away from you like that, it hurts. And it's a process that will take a long time to start the recovery from." Martin's parents attended much of the trial but were not in the court room for the verdict, and Fulton says she was "in a bit of shock" upon hearing of the not guilty verdict. "I thought surely that he would be found guilty of second degree murder, manslaughter at the least. But I just knew that they would see that this was a teenager just trying to get home. This was no burglar. This was somebody's son that was trying to get home." "I was stunned. Absolutely. I couldn't believe it," Fulton added. Fulton says the role of racial profiling in the death of her son is "obvious." "We didn't know details about the case. We knew some of them but some of the details came out in the courtroom as far as previous 911 calls and I think it was obvious that it was a black person, a black young person that they were looking for. But Trayvon simply was not that person. Trayvon was not a burglar. He wasn't doing anything wrong. He simply went to the store and was headed back home. For somebody to look at him and to perceive him to be a burglar, that is the problem," she said. Turning to so-called Juror B37, who spoke out in an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper earlier this week, nd claimed that Trayvon held a significant amount of blame for the confrontation that led to his death, Fulton said "I don't think she knows Trayvon." "Trayvon is not a confrontational person. Instead of placing the blame on the teenager, we need to place the blame on the responsible adult. There were two people involved. We had an adult who was chasing a kid and we had a kid who I feel was afraid." The parents' attorney, Benjamin Crump, said they will consider a civil suit against Zimmerman, but did not confirm how their legal team will move forward in the months ahead. "We'll look at all legal options. Right now, we'll ask the Department of Justice to answer ... 'Can a private citizen with a gun profile and follow our children home?'" "We need to know because we've got to know what to tell our children," Crump said. Fulton called on President Obama to "at the least ... investigate what happened." "At least go through it with a fine-toothed comb and make sure all the T's were crossed and all the I's were dotted because this is sending out a terrible message to young teenagers. Trayvon was walking too slow. So should they be walking too fast? I don't think teenagers know exactly what to do now," she said.

WOMAN WITH TERMINAL CANCER SHARES WORDS OF WISDOM (MOST POWERFUL SPEECH EVER!!!) Mary Jo Hartman January 19, 1959 - January 6, 2016 Despite a nearly four-year battle with ovarian cancer Mary Jo Hartman pursued postgraduate studies for a master’s degree in social work, receiving her diploma from Wayne State University just weeks before she succumbed to the disease. Known by all for her upbeat outlook, she continued working two part-time jobs, pursuing the course work for her master’s and being a super mom and wife, despite numerous operations, other hospitalizations and chemotherapy treatments. In mid-November, given only weeks to live, Mary Jo fought to remain alive through Christmas for her family. On Christmas night, more than 50 neighbors and friends gathered to serenade her with Christmas carols at her home in South Lyon where she had lived for 25 years with her husband, Fred R. LaFevre and their now adult daughters, Kaitlyn and Sarah. Mary Jo, beloved wife, mother, sister, cousin and friend, died on the morning of January 6, 2016, Epiphany, the Feast of the Three Kings, at the age of 56. In addition to her husband and daughters, she is survived by sister Kathy (Bill) Feld, brother Dan (Patti) Hartman, and sisters Ann (and the late Ken) Meck and Joyce (and the late Leo) Marino. Maureen Braun, Cheryl Keefe and Susan Duffy, along with Mary Jo, known by all as the Fab Four, also survive her. Parents Robert and Lynn Hartman predeceased her. Born on January 19, 1959, in Detroit, Mary Jo lived in Orchard Lake, Southfield and South Lyon for all of her life. She graduated from Southfield High School in 1977, earned an associate’s degree in journalism from Oakland Community College and received her bachelors degree from Madonna University in 2009. In December, Mary Jo’s Master’s in Social Work diploma was hand-delivered to her at home by the dean of the school of social work and by her advisor. Mary Jo and Fred met in 1981. Rumor has it, Fred was smitten and it was love at first sight. They were married on October 16, 1987 at St. Hugo of the Hills in Bloomfield Hills. For the past 17 years, Mary Jo focused her professional and volunteer activities on counseling and advising teenagers. She served as the youth minister at two churches (St. Genevieve/St. Maurice Parish in Livonia and St. Joseph Parish in South Lyon), as a residential technician at a family crisis center (Starfish Family Services in Inkster) and as a community liaison at a youth homeless center (Covenant House Michigan). Mary Jo’s unwavering commitment to helping others has inspired many. Those who loved her best, say that she was defined by her faith, her love of family and her service to others. Even during her illness, Mary Jo focused her time and energy on helping those in need and doing everything she could to make the world a better place. Her mantra became: “I can’t die yet, I’m not done saving the world”. She also said “I’m going to keep living my life until there there’s no life left in me.” And she did. Donations in memory of Mary Jo may be made to Covenant House of Michigan 2959 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, Detroit, MI 48208 You are blessed and you are a blessing!

Hilarious outtakes with Madeline Kahn and Marty Feldman in "Young Frankenstein" (1974)
A few very funny outtakes from the Young Frankenstein scene where Madeline Kahn portrays the role of the fiancée, Elizabeth, to the young Dr. Frankenstein, as played by Gene Wilder. The scene has the four characters of Teri Garr, Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn and Marty Feldman. Feldman gives one of his best performances in this scene and was often mentioned by Gene Wilder to be so funny they couldn't help but laugh. He said the shawl Kahn was wearing wasn't supposed to fall apart and every time Feldman bit it, he'd get a mouth full of fur. The beautiful Madeline Kahn Kahn was a celebrated comedienne and actress that also appeared in two other of Brook's films, "Blazing Saddles" (1974) and "History of the World:Part 1" (1981). Kahn was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of ovarian cancer in 1998 and she passed away the following year on December 3, 1999. Feldman was one of Hollywood's most famous actors known for his comedic genius and rather distinctive crooked and bulging eyes, which were attributed to botched operation for Graves disease. In regards to his personal life, Feldman was a voracious chain smoker and some say he smoked as many as 5 packs of cigarettes a day. He died massive heart attack in his hotel room while taking part in the film "Yellowbeard" in 1982. Feldman is noted as the first Saturn Award winner for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Young Frankenstein.

Dinah Shore
Dinah Shore (born Frances Rose Shore; February 29, 1916 – February 24, 1994) was an American singer, actress, television personality, and the top-charting female vocalist of the 1940s. She reached the height of her popularity as a recording artist during the Big Band era of the 1940s and 1950s, but achieved even greater success a decade later, in television, mainly as hostess of a series of variety programs for Chevrolet. After failing singing auditions for the bands of Benny Goodman and both Jimmy Dorsey and his brother Tommy Dorsey, Shore struck out on her own to become the first singer of her era to achieve huge solo success. She had a string of 80 charted popular hits, lasting from 1940 into the late 1950s, and after appearing in a handful of films went on to a four-decade career in American television, starring in her own music and variety shows in the 1950s and 1960s and hosting two talk shows in the 1970s. TV Guide magazine ranked her at #16 on their list of the top fifty television stars of all time. Stylistically, Shore was compared to two singers who followed her in the mid-to-late 1940s and early 1950s, Doris Day and Patti Page. This video is targeted to blind users.

She Refused Chemo & Instead Chose To Receive Injections of This Plant Hint It’s NOT cannabis
http://althealthworks.com/8005/she-beat-stage-iv-colon-cancer-with-a-survival-rate-of-11-using-mistletoeyelena BelieveBig.org https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xsiFPKBgY3c She Refused Chemo & Instead Chose To Receive Injections of This Plant (Hint: It’s NOT cannabis) by Yelena Sukhoterina | October 14, 2015 Ivelisse Page Believe Big Ivelisse Page’s family has a history of colon cancer. Her father died from the disease in his late thirties. Knowing that she was at higher risk for developing the illness, she followed a healthy lifestyle of organic food and exercise and got regular colonoscopies, yet she also developed colon cancer at the age of 37. After the diagnoses, she had 15 inches of colon with 28 lymph nodes removed, and later 20% of her liver removed, she writes on her website. But there was one important part of the mainstream oncology treatment that she declined to do – after researching her disease and treatment options herself, she completely refused chemotherapy. Instead Ivelisse turned to homeopathic remedies and supplements, as well as mistletoe injections – a popular alternative cancer treatment in Europe. Seven years later, she is complete cancer free and is happy to say that she beat IV stage colon cancer that only 11% of patients survive. Mistletoe Injection for Cancer Treatment Ivelisse’s doctor in Baltimore, Peter Hinderberger, is one of 50 doctors in the U.S. who can prescribe mistletoe treatments. He first heard of this treatment in 1970s and worked in a Switzerland cancer clinic that specialized in it. Today, mistletoe is the main part of his own cancer protocol. According to Baltimore Sun, mistletoe has a substance called viscotoxin. Although poisonous, mistletoe kills specific cells – targets cancer cells while improving patient’s immune system simultaneously. A 2007 study found mistletoe extract to extend the life-expectancy of patients with ovarian cancer. A European paper from 2001 concluded that mistletoe treatment extended the survival rate of 1,668 patients with all types of cancer by about 40% after studying 27 years worth of research. Mistletoe-0243 Mistletoe: not just for Christmas decorations anymore. PHOTO: By Loadmaster (David R. Tribble), Wikimedia Commons Will Mistletoe Be Widely Used In The U.S.? While in some European countries such as Germany, mistletoe therapy is accepted and covered by health insurances (though not the German public one, it is covered by some others), the extract is not approved by the FDA. Ivelisse and Dr. Hinderberger are trying to bring it into mainstream oncology on the U.S. Suzanne Somers, a well known actress, singer, and author of Knockout, a book about alternative cancer therapies, utilized mistletoe extract injections as part of her natural healing protocol for cancer. But it hasn’t caught on in the U.S. the way it has in Europe just yet. In 2011, Ivelisse and Jimmy Page founded Believe Big, a nonprofit aimed to educate people on “bridging the gap between conventional and complementary medicine for fighting cancer.” The site also provides resources about mistletoe treatments and how to find physicians who are trained in this therapy. In 2013, Believe Big started to raise the funds for mistletoe clinical trials at Johns Hopkins Medicine’s Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center. The trials would take 5-8 years to complete and would study patients with different types of cancers. The cost of the trials is high, and the cancer center is still holding fundraisers and a GoFundMe campaign to collect enough money to start the process. Physicians currently working with mistletoe therapy can be found on BelieveBig.org. Ivelisse also shares her story in an interview with ChristBeatCancer.com: For information on the true history of cancer and natural treatment options, you can check out ‘The Truth About Cancer: A Global Quest,’ airing for free online from April 12 – 20.

The epidemic of chronic disease and understanding epigenetics | Kent Thornburg | TEDxPortland
When will we decide to conquer chronic disease? The moment we realize the future’s not only in our genes but also in our hands with the choices we make regarding food and nutrition. We now know how we grow before we are born, matters. A woman who is pregnant with a daughter is nourishing the egg that may someday become her grandchild. We must remove the vulnerability for developing chronic disease before it starts. Through the right choices in Family, School, Workplace & Policy - we can position humanity towards a sustainable, more livable answer. Dr. Kent L. Thornburg received his PhD in Developmental Physiology and studied Cardiovascular Physiology as a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Postdoctoral Fellow at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU). He participates in co-funded projects with scientists in England, New Zealand, France, Finland and Australia. He serves regularly on advisory panels at the NIH, the American Heart Association and the Children’s Heart Foundation and recently served as Co-Chair of the task force to determine the 10-year vision of the developmental origins of health and disease for the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.

Stephen DeDakis- Missing Person found
Stephen DeDakis died on Sunday morning, August 21, in his hometown of Washington, D.C. He was 22. To friends and family, he was better known as "Weave," "Stevie," "Sven," or "Svenzerelli." An inventive musician and unstoppable -- if amateur -- comedian, Stephen also worked as a line cook at Addie's Restaurant, 11120 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD. His interest in cooking began at Black's Bar & Kitchen in Bethesda, where he was mentored by Sous Chef Nate Waugaman, now head chef at Addie's where Stephen had recently come to work. Stephen also worked briefly at the Pete's Apizza restaurants in Columbia Heights and Friendship Heights. Born and raised in the Atlanta area, Stephen moved to D.C. in 2005 and graduated from Emerson Preparatory School in 2007. Stephen played trombone in the marching band at Walton High School in Marietta, Georgia. He also taught himself to play drums and guitar. He composed music and formed and/or played in several bands in Atlanta and D.C., notably: Agg, Whacked, Svenzerelli and the Toads, Marfa, Mastako, The Originators, and The Down by the Riverside Catfish Blues Band. At the time of his death, Stephen was considering several career options: culinary school, teaching history, or possibly even becoming a private eye or stand-up comic -- or maybe all simultaneously. Stephen is survived by his parents, John H. DeDakis and Cynthia Brown DeDakis of Washington, D.C. He was brother of Emily DeDakis of Belfast, Northern Ireland and James DeDakis of Asheville, NC; grandson of Hugh D. Brown of Fairport, NY; nephew of Darcy Geddis and Suzanne & Charles Terhune; cousin of Jason, Jeremy, Jessica, Jolene, Jeffrey and Sabrina; and a friend of many.

Ex-drug dealer says Bulger inspired fear on Boston streets

How To Reverse Type 2 Diabetes
Click Here: http://how-to-cure-diabetes.blogspot.com/ Diabetes is a fairly common metabolic disorder characterized by increased glucose in the blood. Our body has the ability to convert almost every food we eat into glucose. Glucose is the main energy source of our cells. However, to get glucose into the cells we need an essential hormone called insulin that is secreted by the pancreas. When the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or the insulin produced does not work properly, the glucose we get from food does not enter the cells and thus remains in the blood. There are two main types of the condition. Type 1 occurs, when the pancreas does not produce any insulin. In type 2, the pancreas either produces less insulin than it needs or the insulin produced does not work effectively. Type 2 diabetes is a disease that primarily affects the developed world. According to medical studies, about 6% of the population suffers from this disease and the percentage is rising. Many people may not even know that they are diabetics, because the condition often has no symptoms. There are several factors that play a role in whether or not someone will develop type 2 diabetes. Some of these factors, such as heredity can not be controlled, while others, such as obesity can be reversed. The things you can't change: * Heredity: If your parents, siblings or grandparents suffered from the disease, then there is an increased likelihood that you will develop this condition at some point of your life. However, there is no hereditary link between diabetes type 1 and type 2. This means that if one of your parents has diabetes type 1, you don't have an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes. * Age: Type 2 diabetes usually occurs after 45 to 50 years of age, but it can sometimes occur at 30 or much later, at 70 or 75. * The presence of other diseases: Specific diseases, such as hyperthyroidism and Cushing Syndrome may create insulin resistance. The things you can change: * Lack of exercise: A sedentary lifestyle can increase the chances of developing the disorder. According to experts, walking just 2 hours per week can significantly reduce the chances of developing this condition. 30-40 minutes of exercise 3-5 times a week are an even better way to protect your health and minimize your risk factors. * Obesity: If your body mass index is greater than 25, you are more likely to become a diabetic. When your BMI exceeds 30, then you stop being overweight and are considered obese. In this case, the chances of developing diabetes will be 4 to 5 times greater compared to people with a BMI of less than 25. What needs to be emphasized is that male or central obesity is more associated with the development of the disease. Now Pay Close Attention Here: To Reverse Type 2 Diabetes, there is an amazing method that can help you reverse the disease the natural way.

how to know if a baby is drinking
Breast milk is widely acknowledged as the most complete form of nutrition for infants, with a range of benefits for infants' health, growth, immunity and development. he World Health Organization recommends that babies are fed only breast milk for their first six months, and that breast-feeding then be continued as part of a mixed diet until the age of two years. Breast-feeding provides many health benefits for both baby and mother. A vitamin D supplement is recommended for all breast-feeding women and for breast-fed babies. Breast-feeding: t is very unusual for a mother to be unable physically to breast-feed. It doesn't matter whether you have small or large breasts, or even if you have inverted nipples. The breast tissue is designed to make enough breast milk for your baby. If you have twins, it is perfectly possible to make enough milk for both babies. Breast-feeding can, however, take a bit of practice and perseverance. As with many things, it is something to be learnt. There are many benefits to breast-feeding and this leaflet is designed to inform you of the benefits, as well asproviding some information on breast-feeding technique and commonly encountered problems. Don't be scared to ask for help if you are finding breast-feeding difficult. This is nothing to be ashamed about. A little bit of advice may give you the confidence you need to continue successful breast-feeding. Breast-fed children are more resistant to disease and infection early in life than formula-fed children. Breast-fed children are less likely to contract a number of diseases later in life, including juvenile diabetes, multiple sclerosis, heart disease, and cancer before the age of 15. Mothers who breastfeed are less likely to develop osteoporosis later in life, are able to lose weight gained during pregnancy more easily and have a lower risk of breast, uterine and ovarian cancer. Infants who are breast-fed longer have fewer dental cavities throughout their lives. Several recent studies have shown that children who were breast-fed are significantly less likely to become obese later in childhood. Formula feeding is linked to about a 20 to 30 percent greater likelihood that the child will become obese. Children who are exclusively breast-fed during the first three months of their lives are 34 percent less likely to develop juvenile, insulin-dependent diabetes than children who are fed formula. Breastfeeding may also decrease the risk of childhood cancer in children under 15 years of age. Formula-fed children are eight times more likely to develop cancer than children who are nursed for more than six months. (It is important to note that children who are breast-fed for less than six months do not appear to have any decreased cancer risk compared to bottle-fed children.) Breastfeeding helps a woman to lose weight after birth. Mothers burn many calories during lactation as their bodies produce milk. In fact, some of the weight gained during pregnancy serves as an energy source for lactation. Women who lactate for a total of two or more years reduce their chances of developing breast cancer by 24 percent. Women who breastfeed their children have been shown to be less likely to develop uterine, endometrial or ovarian cancer. Breast-feeding reduces the risk of cot death. There is good evidence that sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) - also known as cot death - is less common in breast-fed babies. Breast milk is the best nutrition for babies.

Bing Crosby
Harry Lillis "Bing" Crosby, Jr. (May 3, 1903 – October 14, 1977) was an American singer and actor. Crosby's trademark bass-baritone voice made him one of the best-selling recording artists of the 20th century, with over half a billion records in circulation. A multimedia star, from 1934 to 1954 Bing Crosby was a leader in record sales, radio ratings, and motion picture grosses. His early career coincided with technical recording innovations; this allowed him to develop a laid-back, intimate singing style that influenced many of the popular male singers who followed him, including Perry Como, Frank Sinatra, and Dean Martin. Yank magazine recognized Crosby as the person who had done the most for American G.I. morale during World War II and, during his peak years, around 1948, American polls declared him the "most admired man alive", ahead of Jackie Robinson and Pope Pius XII. Also in 1948, the Music Digest estimated that Crosby recordings filled more than half of the 80,000 weekly hours allocated to recorded radio music. This video is targeted to blind users.

Clark Gable
William Clark Gable (February 1, 1901 -- November 16, 1960) was an American film actor, often regarded as The King of Hollywood or just simply as The King. Gable began his career as a stage actor and appeared as an extra in silent films between 1924 and 1926, and progressed to supporting roles with a few films for MGM in 1931. The next year he landed his first leading Hollywood role and became a leading man in more than 60 motion pictures over the next three decades. Gable was arguably best known for his role as Rhett Butler in the epic Gone with the Wind (1939), for which he received his third nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actor. He was also nominated for leading roles in Mutiny on the Bounty (1935), and he won for It Happened One Night (1934). Gable found further success commercially and critically with films like Red Dust (1932), Manhattan Melodrama (1934), San Francisco (1936), Saratoga (1937) Boom Town (1940), The Hucksters (1947) Homecoming (1948) and The Misfits (1961) which was his final screen presence. Clark Gable is considered one of the most consistent box-office performers in history, having been appeared on Quigley Publishing's Annual Top Ten Money Making Stars sixteen times.

Suspense: Dead Ernest / Last Letter of Doctor Bronson / The Great Horrell
On the second presentation of July 22, 1940, Forecast offered a mystery/horror show titled Suspense. With the co-operation of his producer, Walter Wanger, Alfred Hitchcock received the honor of directing his first radio show for the American public. The condition agreed upon for Hitchcock's appearance was that CBS make a pitch to the listening audience about his and Wanger's latest film, Foreign Correspondent. To add flavor to the deal, Wanger threw in Edmund Gwenn and Herbert Marshall as part of the package. All three men (including Hitch) would be seen in the upcoming film, which was due for a theatrical release the next month. Both Marshall and Hitchcock decided on the same story to bring to the airwaves, which happened to be a favorite of both of them: Marie Belloc Lowndes' "The Lodger." Alfred Hitchcock had filmed this story for Gainsborough in 1926, and since then it had remained as one of his favorites. Herbert Marshall portrayed the mysterious lodger, and co-starring with him were Edmund Gwenn and character actress Lurene Tuttle as the rooming-house keepers who start to suspect that their new boarder might be the notorious Jack-the-Ripper. [Gwenn was actually repeating the role taken in the 1926 film by his brother, Arthur Chesney. And Tuttle would work again with Hitchcock nearly 20 years later, playing Mrs. Al Chambers, the sheriff's wife, in Psycho.] Character actor Joseph Kearns also had a small part in the drama, and Wilbur Hatch, head musician for CBS Radio at the time, composed and conducted the music specially for the program. Adapting the script to radio was not a great technical challenge for Hitchcock, and he cleverly decided to hold back the ending of the story from the listening audience in order to keep them in suspense themselves. This way, if the audience's curiosity got the better of them, they would write in to the network to find out whether the mysterious lodger was in fact Jack the Ripper. For the next few weeks, hundreds of letters came in from faithful listeners asking how the story ended. Actually a few wrote threats claiming that it was "indecent" and "immoral" to present such a production without giving the solution. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suspense_%28radio_drama%29

Auburn Coach Wife Kristi Malzahn Agrees with Match & eHarmony: Men are Jerks
My advice is this: Settle! That's right. Don't worry about passion or intense connection. Don't nix a guy based on his annoying habit of yelling "Bravo!" in movie theaters. Overlook his halitosis or abysmal sense of aesthetics. Because if you want to have the infrastructure in place to have a family, settling is the way to go. Based on my observations, in fact, settling will probably make you happier in the long run, since many of those who marry with great expectations become more disillusioned with each passing year. (It's hard to maintain that level of zing when the conversation morphs into discussions about who's changing the diapers or balancing the checkbook.) Obviously, I wasn't always an advocate of settling. In fact, it took not settling to make me realize that settling is the better option, and even though settling is a rampant phenomenon, talking about it in a positive light makes people profoundly uncomfortable. Whenever I make the case for settling, people look at me with creased brows of disapproval or frowns of disappointment, the way a child might look at an older sibling who just informed her that Jerry's Kids aren't going to walk, even if you send them money. It's not only politically incorrect to get behind settling, it's downright un-American. Our culture tells us to keep our eyes on the prize (while our mothers, who know better, tell us not to be so picky), and the theme of holding out for true love (whatever that is—look at the divorce rate) permeates our collective mentality. Even situation comedies, starting in the 1970s with The Mary Tyler Moore Show and going all the way to Friends, feature endearing single women in the dating trenches, and there's supposed to be something romantic and even heroic about their search for true love. Of course, the crucial difference is that, whereas the earlier series begins after Mary has been jilted by her fiancé, the more modern-day Friends opens as Rachel Green leaves her nice-guy orthodontist fiancé at the altar simply because she isn't feeling it. But either way, in episode after episode, as both women continue to be unlucky in love, settling starts to look pretty darn appealing. Mary is supposed to be contentedly independent and fulfilled by her newsroom family, but in fact her life seems lonely. Are we to assume that at the end of the series, Mary, by then in her late 30s, found her soul mate after the lights in the newsroom went out and her work family was disbanded? If her experience was anything like mine or that of my single friends, it's unlikely. And while Rachel and her supposed soul mate, Ross, finally get together (for the umpteenth time) in the finale of Friends, do we feel confident that she'll be happier with Ross than she would have been had she settled down with Barry, the orthodontist, 10 years earlier? She and Ross have passion but have never had long-term stability, and the fireworks she experiences with him but not with Barry might actually turn out to be a liability, given how many times their relationship has already gone up in flames. It's equally questionable whether Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw, who cheated on her kindhearted and generous boyfriend, Aidan, only to end up with the more exciting but self-absorbed Mr. Big, will be better off in the framework of marriage and family. (Some time after the breakup, when Carrie ran into Aidan on the street, he was carrying his infant in a Baby Björn. Can anyone imagine Mr. Big walking around with a Björn?)

Stryper is an American Christian glam metal band from Orange County, California. The group's lineup consists of Michael Sweet, Oz Fox, Tim Gaines, and Robert Sweet. In 2004, Gaines left the band and was replaced by Tracy Ferrie but rejoined in 2009. Formed in 1983 as Roxx Regime, the band soon changed their musical message to reflect their Christian beliefs, and the band's name was also changed to Stryper. They went on to become the first overtly Christian heavy metal band to gain acceptance in the mainstream. In 1983, they signed with major label Enigma Records and released their debut album The Yellow and Black Attack. In the mid-1980s, Stryper enjoyed their most successful period beginning with the release of To Hell with the Devil, which achieved platinum sales status. Stryper went on to release two more gold albums before breaking up in 1992. In 2003, Stryper came out of retirement for a reunion tour and subsequently signed a multi-album contract with Big3 Records in 2005. In 2013 they signed a multi-album deal with Frontiers Records, and have released an EP, Second Coming, which includes 14 re-recorded songs from their first three albums and an album, No More Hell to Pay, released on November 5, 2013. Fallen has been released on October 16, 2015. This video is targeted to blind users. Attribution: Article text available under CC-BY-SA Creative Commons image source in video

State of Democracy: Madeleine Kunin
Madeleine Kunin discusses "The New Feminist Agenda: Defining the Next Revolution for Women, Work, and Family" Former Vermont Governor Madeleine Kunin will speak based on her new book of the same title. Kunin was governor of Vermont from 1985 to 1991. She also served in the Vermont legislature and as Lieutenant Governor. Following her service as governor, she was Deputy U. S. Secretary of Education and U. S. Ambassador to Switzerland. She is currently Marsh Scholar Professor-at-Large at the University of Vermont. Robert Reich wrote this about the book: "Women's social and economic gains over the past thirty years have been staggering - but equally staggering is how little America has changed in response. What's needed is a new feminist agenda to bring the country up to date. Madeleine Kunin, one of the nation's foremost leaders, has stepped up to the plate and delivered us a home run. The agenda she advocates is powerful, relevant, and necessary." In addition to The New Feminist Agenda, Kunin's previous books include Pearls, Politics, and Power: How Women Can Win and Lead.
