Fri, 28 Apr 2017 13:11:14 -0500***Keep up the good work, it's your courageous way of living that is making the planet a better place for you and me and for everybody else who's alive and doing fine! With that being said, I believe that courage can be openly demonstrated for the betterment of our friends, family and for society as well.

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 07:13:40 -0500There are just certain near absolute premises that we knit together to form our own personal coherent philosophical worldview of life, the Universe and everything. While these premises are always subject to reviews and revisions, they don't usually alter drastically once we mature and get reasonably fixed in our ways of looking at things. So, in the here-and-now, here are a few of my basic theological and scientific premises.

Wed, 19 Apr 2017 07:27:51 -0500All prostitutes, immoral sinners including sex toy users and other 'masturbators' are possessed with sex demonic spirits. Mary Magdalene; a prostitute and other women were having these issues until they came to Jesus who cast out those spirits upon their repentance. And they became free. Look at Mary, after that encounter with Jesus her real person, gift, love for God came out. She immediately became one of the most trusted followers of the Lord Jesus.

Sun, 16 Apr 2017 13:18:49 -0500As a part of global society, it is our duty that instead of falling for the footsteps of bigotry, we should promote openness at all levels of life.

Thu, 30 Mar 2017 14:16:31 -0500Like never before, the post capitalist society in India is facing problems from within. In one sense, it is tradition vs. status quo; friction between intellectuals and managers resulting in negative growth of industries.
Wed, 29 Mar 2017 08:37:43 -0500Recently, in an online publication, which shall remain unnamed due to citation variances among differing publications wherein little consistency prevails, published a rather informative article regarding public inclinations toward "anti-intellectualism". In agreement with this, it can be readily observed, providing one takes the time and effort, that on a selective range, American society is devolving into a gluttonous lethargy of "anti-thinking". As such, emotionalism trumps reason, and whining, groveling and temper tantrum throwing selfishness over-ride intellectual advancement.
Thu, 23 Mar 2017 11:58:38 -0500The way death claims its victims is as normal as it is unique. One wonders who writes the scripts for some of the victims who perish without knowing why. These scripts are always most inhumanly creative, cruel beyond imagination and most horrendously instantaneous...
Wed, 22 Mar 2017 13:58:15 -0500This article follows on from the Power of Expectations to highlight an area where many of us as educational professionals and parents alike fail. The Power of Conviction - This basically means if you say it, then mean it! This is one of those powers that is easy to say and understand but very difficult to put into practice as it takes a steadfastness, that all too often we are willing to compromise for that easy life. I use that phrase deliberately because I would like you to reflect on it at the end of this piece.

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 06:53:40 -0500How many times do we hear politicians accuse their opponents of being liars and cheats? It's a human characteristic that what you see in others is what is really within yourself.

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 06:48:02 -0500Do you ever find it maddening that our political leaders always identify the current and some of the future problems in our city, county, state, country or the world - and then tell us that they will solve those problems? The big kicker is that most of those problems we have or face were created by people just like them working for the Great Intentions Paving Company LLC. It's also frustrating that our leaders regardless of political affiliation seem to love to practice the definition of insanity - always proposing the same types of solutions which have never worked before. Okay so, let's talk about this real world problem shall we?

Wed, 08 Mar 2017 13:24:31 -0600Psychological warfare, psyops, political propaganda, and so forth, are premeditated purposes, usually not positive in nature, to influence the thinking processes of others. Intentional misuse of various media, communication means and an array of "infotainment" are calculated to manipulate belief systems. Particularly, the effort contrives to foster emotionalism over logical deductive aspects of mindful analysis. Frequently, the efforts are directed at eventual exploitation of decision-making and actions based on emotional reactivity to superficial contentions. Power, control and dominance in one form or another are skillfully disguised.

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 09:05:58 -0600As time goes by, we start to realize who influenced us. The artist Christo and his wife certainly touched my life and introduced me to art I could understand and absorb. Their story draws me in continuously through the years.
Tue, 21 Feb 2017 08:57:52 -0600I cannot think of anyone who enjoys paying their utility bills. As far as I can surmise everyone would prefer to get their water and electricity for free. There may be some exceptions to this general rule but these people are far in between the norm and hard to find.
Tue, 21 Feb 2017 06:54:34 -0600Our thinking group has come to the conclusion that NASA's climate science budget of over $2 Billion per year is far too rich for the taxpayer, especially considering that NASA's main mission is one of aeronautics and space. While it is true that NASA has engaged in Earth Sciences to better estimate our potential future visitations to other planets during human space exploration, how we went from that to climate science is quite a stretch. Of course, if one mentions any of these, they are called anti-science and accused of having a right-wing political agenda, something I find rather troubling indeed.

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 10:00:54 -0600I was inspired to write this article because of three things that happened to me in the last few weeks. Firstly, I wasn't very impressed with the under-communication from the Estate Residents Association EXCO on the issue of a new transformer in my estate, especially since we have been in the dark for the last three weeks. In a separate event, a client told a class of 40 co-participants at one of my workshops that the article I wrote sometime last year on 'Why our Transformational Change Efforts may fail", must have reached the attention of President Buhari and his...

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 14:43:08 -0600Anyone who has read anything about the ordeal that our prisoners of war had to endure - especially those held by the Japanese during World War II - would appreciate what the flag really means. Viet Nam and Korean War POWs had it very bad and I do not mean to disparage their hardship; but I have not read where they were subjected to such conditions of slavery and utter inhumane treatment as the POWs from the USS Houston and the other POWs in Japanese prison camps. I have just finished reading...

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 13:08:15 -0600Bondage, captivity, enslavement, to this realm of reality portends the inward form of slavery, one after another, in many forms. Indebtedness, involuntary servitude and submissiveness, of willful natures, succumb to the subservience of more powerful entities. Some on a psychic level, others on a physical level, and still others on a spiritual transcendence, as energy streams are directed to lesser values. Choices are of freewill, with calculated forethought and eventual intention. Of service inclination, bearing the burden of such bondage, is of personal choosing. The blasphemy committed, of the individual quest, is the paradox of humanity, to be free yet submitted to another. At any given instant, the journey becomes compounded by self-interests that devolve to selfish immaturities. Human nature, the thinking processes incumbent by personality, resides in realms both good and evil. Duality of existence in struggling to overcome unevolved selfishness requires exceptional diligence.

For a country that has been on the offensive for thousands of years evading various assaults and colonial intent, the optimism that I witnessed in...

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 11:11:51 -0600My first musing on President Rodrigo Duterte of The Philippines was an eye-opener for my conscience on how some leaders continue to stay relevant and capture the hearts of many through their unselfish acts. I find it obligatory to pen my second on this emerging great leader. In my first article, I have coined the term 'Dutertenism' mainly profiling his unorthodox, but successful methods in dealing with the maladies rampaging The Philippines for the past 40 years, as a result impeding its progress, unable to keep up the pace with the other South-east Asian nations.

The regular tutoring that was received by the current old generation through these informal avenues abreast them with the time-tested cultural practices that ensure good relationships, good work ethics and the exhibition of good moral behavior.

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 13:11:26 -0600Get rid of hindering ways of thinking, disallow other people to influence your thought life, or to influence your decision-making process. Be cognizant of distractions or detractors that do not have your best interest at the heart, especially in your interactions with them.

What you do daily can pave the road to your success, by setting an intention in motion for reaching your goals, by action taken daily. In honest effort and joyful intentions follow what brings you the most bliss in your emotional arsenal of life actions to reach your desires and dreams with integrity.
Wed, 11 Jan 2017 10:57:42 -0600Dear America, did you adopt me because you had no choice when I arrived to your doorstep? Or do you despise the fact that you had to take me in? Do you despise me and forsake me the same way your other natural child who is drunk every other day denies that he has a son? Or like the woman who could not care less if one of her many daughters has not arrived home since last Friday, but it's not a big deal for her since it's one less mouth to feed-no longer a problem. And if they're called natural then what is so natural and normal about them. Am I not normal then? Not natural? Then perhaps I mustn't be from this Earth, and I guess that's why you call me "alien."

Sat, 31 Dec 2016 13:01:03 -0600Perhaps you are a supporter of the Second Amendment, and do have much a problem with our citizens owning guns - or perhaps you are tired of listening to the TV scaring you about gun violence, and just wish all handguns in the US would go away. It's hard to believe that I or anyone else can convince you of the other perspective, most everyone seems to side with one side or the other, and some perhaps have caveats to their middle of the road "gray area" view of it all. Something like; All Law Abiding Citizens In A Good State Of Mind Should Have The Right to Own A Gun. Okay so, let's talk about this debate for a moment shall we?
Fri, 30 Dec 2016 07:09:48 -0600We're no longer masters or even partners with technology, rather slaves to it. It's inevitable that a cyber-beast of a program will escape its electronic compound vaporizing firewalls everywhere and plunge cities, regions, even countries into the "Stone Age" of the 1980s. It could very well be our cyber-Fail Safe moment.
Wed, 28 Dec 2016 13:12:10 -0600This is your year of victory! Now, you will pass over to that side of victory. Your victory has come. This is marking the end of your weeping, gnashing of teeth, agonizing, tormenting from the enemy. This is marking the end of that mockery. You have stayed too long on that side. Now, rise and go over to the side of victory in Jesus' name! Victory means conquest, triumph, win, success. I see you now crossing over victoriously in Jesus' name! And to begin to cross over also means that you have been some where before now, but the place has been suppressing, holding back, unfavorable, unpleasant or unproductive. But Thank God, your year of changing positions has come. Praise God! Let's go.
Tue, 27 Dec 2016 07:01:34 -0600Last time I checked, Universities existed to teach the next generation and prepare them to take the helm and propel our society and civilization, and humankind into the future with the right knowledge and skills to do it. And yet, these days professors and academia in general seems to have taken up a new cause, they call it many things; social justice, equality, diversity, sustainability, progressive agenda. In fact, it appears that they believe these things to be more important to their mission than actually teaching our next generation the very subjects we've hired them to teach. Let's talk.
Tue, 27 Dec 2016 07:01:08 -0600We all know that most of academia in the United States leans far-left towards a very progressive (I believe regressive) agenda, and pretend to be very egalitarian in their viewpoints even if their arguments are as flawed as the worst socialist governments of world history. One would think that they of all people would have studied their history - such is not the case apparently.
Thu, 22 Dec 2016 09:38:01 -0600Bashar al-Assad, the Syrian President, states that his country has been "the target of foreign conspiracies for geopolitical and other reasons". "Conspiracies, like germs reproduce everywhere, every moment and they cannot be eradicated". "yet we have to fortify our community, what we have seen through the media and political positions does not require a great deal of analysis that there exists a conspiracy".
Tue, 20 Dec 2016 07:20:02 -0600After Obama was re-elected our Think Tank looked at his popularity and his record as president, it wasn't very good. ObamaCare turned out to not be working, the Middle East was worse than it had ever been, and the country had falling into a victimhood mentality. President Obama went around the world apologizing for America rather than promoting us. Political correctness had run amuck and race-relations were worse than they'd ever been in the US.
Tue, 20 Dec 2016 07:18:02 -0600Feminists always chastise those who attempt to categorize all women into a single mold. Although I rarely can handle the feminist rhetoric or its inherent hypocrisy - I guess, I do agree that forcing all women into a single mold or statement is bound to get you into trouble. Generalizing okay, or for the sake of mathematical probability fine, but just because someone is a woman, doesn't mean there are like this or like that. Let's talk.
Mon, 19 Dec 2016 07:21:07 -0600At our think tank we often consider the future and its ramifications. We are about to change the normal evolution of our species, making it better for the world we live, our technologically advanced work and all the worlds we may live in the future - off world civilizations in space, other planets and moons. It's inevitable, but is it right to do? Let's talk.
Fri, 16 Dec 2016 15:10:27 -0600TCU has been in the news recently for their attempts to improve the educational experience they offer to minority students. The chancellor has put forth a plan to bring around some change, and students have been opening up about their struggles using the hashtag #BeingMinorityatTCU. We should support the efforts of our school to give everyone on campus the same great experience, regardless of who they may be.
Thu, 15 Dec 2016 09:22:46 -0600There are economic asteroids headed for us right now, in fact... hidden by the incessant prattle about the president-elect's latest tweets. Don't let fake news drain your wallet.
Thu, 15 Dec 2016 07:04:21 -0600When the United Nations talks about 'sustainability' people listen, governments listen, or politicians at every level listen and say; that sounds like a really good idea. But, I dare to ask; is it? Is it a good idea to have some sort of global government overseer telling us the best management practices to stay as efficient as possible - using the latest clean technologies? Suggesting things we can do to improve and ushering in a new age of global socialism.
Mon, 12 Dec 2016 11:53:45 -0600India is defined as a country of different cultures. The official logo of Indian Government is 'Unity in Diversity.' There are hundreds of differences between various echelons of people and their ways of living and cultures which started from age old civilisations. There is, however, one common factor along the length and the breadth of India which is CINEMA.The fact is that a vast majority of Indians are lovers or so to say, are fanatics of motion films. If they are only the fanatics, the problem will end there. But the pity is, cinema has its great influence in all the fields of life starting from family lives of common man up to political factors deciding the fate of elected Governments. It is this alarming situation which has necessitated writing this article.Due care has been taken to avoid personal references.
Mon, 12 Dec 2016 08:49:46 -0600The Boy Scout motto: Be Prepared! How often have we heard this phrase. Yet there are those lingering questions about the preparedness of this country in the event that some calamity will strike this country.
Sun, 11 Dec 2016 17:07:26 -0600Not long after Donald Trump won the 2016 Presidential Election a fellow think tanker type was so dumbfounded that he stated to me; "Lance what everyone is trying to process is how a political campaign based on lies and hate speech could succeed in the most advanced economy in history." Of course, such a statement in and of itself shows just how out-of-touch this gentleman really is. You see, the lies and hate speech actually came from the other side constantly calling the right "racists" and all sorts of other derogatory things and lying to the public while their personal emails showed how they really felt and what the left was really up to.
Fri, 09 Dec 2016 13:09:48 -0600Last month--and for about a two year period before that--we had "the race to the White House" in full tilt while we now seem to be experiencing "the race from the White House," similarly hectic. (Don't know about you, but I am getting winded from all these races!) While President-elect Donald Trump is busily engaged in a "victory lap" of sorts in celebration of the "Miracle Of November 8 That Salvaged The United States From Certain Ruin"--or, according to CNN's own "Last Angry (black) Man", Van Jones, that day was, as he referred to it, "Whitelash!"--President Obama is desperately making an attempt to salvage what remains of his so-called "legacy." And doing a rather poor job of it, too.

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 08:14:46 -0600The article deals with the harsh life of a construction worker. Further, it tries to explain their aspirations and how they cope with it in everyday life.
Fri, 02 Dec 2016 07:26:59 -0600A lion prowled in a field occupied by four bulls. He repeatedly tried to attack them but to no avail. Whenever the lion approached, they turned their tails to one another - so from whichever direction he advanced, he was met by their horns. However, one day a quarrel broke out amongst the bulls, and each went off to pasture alone in a separate corner of the field. Soon after the lion charged, killing all four bulls one by one.
