A trip through Las Vegas early 1980s



Views:78197|Rating:4.72|View Time:8:10Minutes|Likes:254|Dislikes:15
Did another dig through the old tapes and I found another old Las Vegas tape taken from the old airwaves of the older KDWN-AM. It wasn’t as plentiful as the Vegas tapes of the past, but there are a few interesting artifacts and here are a small selection.

Small side note: there’s a small KDWN Christmas promo from a X-mas eve broadcast I wish I’d fully recorded. But, hell, I was 18 — 19 at the time, so what did I know about such future and pointless concerns.

Plus, the FCC regulation spiel at the end was taken from a StardustLine show from August 1984 with hosts Lee Pete and Jim Brown. I got bored one night and recorded an entire show just for the hell of it, weak radio reception and all. Well, saved THAT in full……

Enjoy the old Vegas while you can, fanboys and fangals,

Disclaimer: This series is intended for students, to give them a broad overview of a complicated subject that has driven world history for centuries. Our story begins and focuses on Rome.

One of the toughest questions early Christians had to face was Mosaic Law. Did the laws of Moses still apply, or did the teachings of Jesus Christ replace them? The issue of circumcision became a focal point for this conflict. In an era without surgical anaesthetic or procedures, asking grown men to have their foreskins removed was a painful process. Paul the Apostle argued vehemently against the practice because he believed that Christianity needed to be accessible to Romans, the gentiles, and he knew that requirements like circumcision would vastly reduce the number of people willing to convert. Gradually, Judaizing forces were pushed out of mainstream Christianity as the religion began to convert more Romans. But it soon faced another crisis: what was the nature of Christ? This issue would come up time and time again, but one of the earliest conflicts over it came from the Docetists. They believed Christ was a being of pure spirit, and that it would denigrate his godhood to consider him a human man. But in the Epistles, John argued fervently against that idea, saying that Christians must believe in Christ “in the flesh” in order for his sacrifices to be meaningful. A bishop named Ignatius of Antioch embraced that idea when facing a conviction to be thrown to lions in the Colossuem, believing that his martyrdom echoed Christ’s and he was proud to give his body to prove his faith. Then the 3rd Century Crisis hit, and the Roman government fell apart. The Church stepped in, and many people believed its prophesies of apocalypse had come to pass in this era. Although the government eventually recovered thanks to men like Aurelian and Diocletian, conversion rates had gone up. But civil war rocked the empire again, and it came down to the Battle of the Milvian Bridge. Constantine, one of the claimants for the throne, supposedly had a vision telling him to paint “Chi Rho” (the Greek letters for Christ) on his soldiers’ shields. He did so, and won the day. In gratitude he converted to Christianity and eventually brought most of the empire with him, with the population going from about 10% Christian to 50% Christian followers.

CalFresh February benefits rolled out early



Views:231|Rating:5.00|View Time:1:36Minutes|Likes:3|Dislikes:0
FRESNO, California – Those who rely on the CalFresh program got next month’s benefits early because of the partial government shutdown. County agencies overseeing the program’s local distributions say this doesn’t mean big impacts to the program — for now.

CalFresh, known federally as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), is the state’s largest nutrition assistance program. February benefits started to roll out Tuesday and will continue to do so until Sunday.

Linda DuChene, deputy director for the Fresno County Department of Social Services, said if someone doesn’t get their benefits by Sunday — they will get it on their normal issuance date. That includes people who have only recently enrolled.

“We expect that if somebody enrolled, maybe a month ago…they should receive their benefits,” DuChene said.

CalFresh is a major program in Fresno and the surrounding area. In Fresno, Madera, Merced, Mariposa, Kings and Tulare counties — more than 400,000 people rely on it. That’s according to state data from Novemeber 2018.

Right now, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has funded SNAP programs through February. If the shutdown were to continue past that, that’s when things get really concerning.

“We have not received any guidance yet from the feds or the state about March benefits,” DuChene said. “So, for now, we’re continuing to stay in contact with them.

DuChene advises CalFresh users to remember the Central California Food Bank is a good place to really make your benefits last. Click here for a link to its website, below is their address and phone number:

Mormon Stories #645: Missionaries Pt. 3: Mike Woodruff – Gay, Abused on Mission, PTSD, Early Return



Views:9229|Rating:4.67|View Time:59:44Minutes|Likes:86|Dislikes:6
Mike Woodruff knew that he was attracted to men by age 14. After consulting with his LDS bishop, he was told that his “same-sex attraction” would “resolve itself” once he served an LDS mission. His LDS patriarchal blessing also assured him that he would serve a complete LDS mission.

After being called to the Leeds, England mission, Mike was physically and emotionally abused by his first companion. Suffering with severe PTSD symptoms, he tried for two months to remain in the mission, but did not receive appropriate mental health care. Instead, his mission-assigned therapist focused primarily on encouraging Mike to read his scriptures and pray more, which only reinforced his feelings of shame/blame as an abuse victim. In addition, Mike’s abusive companion was never punished for the abuse (to his knowledge), and was simply reassigned to other missionaries.

Mike ended up returning home early from his mission (after 3 months of service), and spent several years trying to reconcile the shame/guilt that he felt, heal from his PTSD, and reconcile his same-sex sexuality. Mike consulted NorthStar to help him manage his sexuality and remain faithful LDS, but this approach ultimately led him to a suicide attempt.

Mike ultimately found peace and mental health by leaving the LDS church, and coming out as a gay man.

Sleepyhouse: The House “Blind Melon” lived in for a short while in the early 90’s

This was the House in Durham NC , which was nicknamed the SleepyHouse, which Shannon Hoon and his Blind Melon Bandmates lived in, in the early 90’s, for just a year or so, when they were writing songs for their famous Bee Girl album with the hit song “No Rain”. However, from the research I did, they only wrote a couple songs in this house, but they partied hard and jammed all the time at this place. It’s in Durham NC. Sorry that I moved the camera from time to time, but I got a little worried that they were looking out, so I tried to make it look like I was taping the whole street. Another reason they probably choose Durham is because it’s close to Chapel Hill, and Chapel had a great indie music scene back in the 90’s. Hope you enjoy!

Mormon Stories #658: Dr. Greg Prince Pt. 1 – Early Years, Developing a Cure for RSV



Views:6044|Rating:4.62|View Time:1:8:32Minutes|Likes:24|Dislikes:2
Dr. Greg Prince is best known within Mormonism as the author of three books:

– Power from on High: The Development of Mormon Priesthood
– David O. McKay and the Rise of Modern Mormonism
– Leonard Arrington and the Writing of Mormon History

In this three-part series we discuss the following:

– Part 1: Greg’s early years as a Mormon in the Los Angeles area, his graduate work as a dentist and as a pathologist, and his role in developing a cure for RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infection), which has saved tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of infant lives.

– Part 2: Greg discusses the challenges of raising a son (Madison) with autism, then discusses how he developed a gospel framework that allowed him to avoid a faith crisis, which led to his entree into Mormon history authorship. We focus on his Priesthood book.

– Part 3: Greg goes deep into how he maintains faith/belief and activity in God/Christ/the LDS Church as a scientist, and after knowing so much troubling LDS history. He also lays out in detail his nuanced LDS testimony.
