Ravi Zacharias Ministry – Truth on Its Head

First time I heard of the “Ravi Zacharias Ministry”, this piece sure si worth a reading!

Daily Devotions, News and Information

G.K. Chesterton took the word “prolific” to a level that, as a writer, simply makes me feel tired. In his lifetime, Chesterton authored over one hundred books and contributed to two hundred others. He penned hundreds of poems, five plays, five novels, and some two hundred short stories, including the popular Father Brown detective series. He wrote over four thousand newspaper essays, including thirty years worth of weekly columns for The Illustrated London News, and thirteen years of weekly columns for The Daily News. He also edited his own newspaper, G.K.’s Weekly.

As one can easily imagine after such an inventory, G.K. Chesterton was always writing—wherever he found himself, and with whatever he could find to write on. So, in the tearoom he scribbled on napkins. On the train, in front of a bank teller, or in the middle of a lecture, he was known to jot hurriedly in a…

Purtroppo, mentre il mondo ricorda questa tragedia, molti Paesi Occidentali e democratici, continuano a implementare le relazioni diplomatiche ed economiche con il regime iraniano. Un regime fondamentalista e islamista che, putroppo, ha fatto del negazionismo e dell’antisemitismo, una caratteristica ideologica vitale. Teheran, infatti, non solo non riconosce la veridicità dell’Olocausto, ma attivamente promuove conferenze e concorsi di vignette, il cui scopo dichiarato è dimostrare la falsità della Shoàh. Peggio, il primo promotore di questo negazionismo è lo stesso Ali Khamenei, Guida Suprema dell’Iran e figura più importante del regime (No Pasdaran).

Pop That Goes Crunch!

a0299150950_16We kick off our year-end “best of” lists with a discussion of the finest EPs we’ve heard over the past year.

The nature of an “EP” is subject to interpretation these days. However, for our present purposes, if it has between three and eight songs, its an EP. We will be discussing the finest LPs of the year in the coming days, and will conclude the year-end festivities by a look at distinguished works that do not quite fit either category — non-LP singles, multi-artist compilations, tributes, and the like. Call that one “odds and ends.”

Enough chit chat. Let’s get down to business.

10. Baby ScreamLife’s A Trap: Juan Pablo Mazzola continues to revel humorously, and brilliantly, in the bitterly sardonic on this eight-track tale of regret, boredom, disappointment, disgust and (occasional) happiness. Life’s A Trap is somewhat laid back in comparison to Mazzola’s prior efforts…
