This episode features Chris Demars, Randy Litwin and Jenn Litwin of Spring House Spirits. Sixty years ago Chris's grandmother taught him how to distill spirits, make wine and brew beer. Chris worked as a nuclear engineer which is kind of like being a distiller. He longed to come back to the family farm and get back to his distilling roots. He pays homage to his grandmothers background by bringing several grains together in the mash bill. This bespoke farm distillery is creating amazing spirits that are full of character and flavor. Each bottle highlights the quality of the process, the local grains, and the connection to the history of the surrounding Chester County community. 25 Martin Rd, Coatesville, PA 19320 - (610)593-7348 - www.SpringHouseSpirits.com - Facebook Highlights from our discussion: St. Malachi Church M & D Staves Zook Molasses Company Grey Goose Vodka Deer Creek Malthouse

Pradip Malde joined Michael Chovan-Dalton and Ryann Casey for a live show at the JKC Gallery to talk about his book, From Where Loss Comes, published by Charcoal Books. From Where Loss Comes is an unblinking look at how sacrifice and belonging are deeply rooted in the human experience. Sixty photographs and close to 9,000 words consider pain and suffering that is private, sacrificial, and yet rattles against values that are thought of as being inalienable — our fundamental human rights. It is a story of the root causes of female genital mutilation and cutting (FGM/C). Pradip, Ryann, and Michael talk about how you go about creating work that deals with such painful and personal stories and how you present that work in a respectful and caring manner.

Sixty years after the Cuban Missile Crisis, today's world leaders can apply lessons learned to potential future nuclear crises. Former Obama Administration Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes, Executive Director of the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies at Harvard University Alexandra Vacroux, and former Pulitzer-prize winning reporter and author Jonathan Kaufman discuss potential crises ahead and how the Cuban Missile Crisis's legacy remains relevant.
It's Wednesday, November 2nd, A.D. 2022. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. (Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Jonathan Clark Two imprisoned Iranian Christians released Praise God! Officials in Iran unexpectedly released two Christians last month from Evin Prison. It's known as the country's “torture factory.” Both Christians received pardons. One of the believers, Pastor Nasser Narvad Gol-Tapeh, had already served half of a ten-year sentence for attending a house church. A few days before the release, a fire broke out at the prison, killing four prisoners. None of the Christians at the prison were hurt. Please pray for the 10 Christians who remain in the infamous prison. The Lord said in Isaiah 43:1-2, “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are Mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you … When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you.” Court: Scottish venue ordered to pay Billy Graham Assoc. $100,000 Last Monday, a Scottish court ruled an event venue must pay the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, headed by Franklin Graham, over $100,000 for canceling a crusade. Back in January 2020, Scottish Event Campus Limited canceled an event because of Franklin Graham's biblical views on marriage and sexuality. Graham welcomed the ruling, saying, “This case was … about the preservation of religious freedom in the U.K. — particularly the right for Christians to share the Gospel in the public square.” Mexican state recognizes faux homosexual marriage Last Wednesday, Mexico's northeastern border state of Tamaulipas voted to recognize faux homosexual marriage. The vote comes after three other states, Mexico, Sonora, and Sinaloa, made similar votes. Living in vile passions with someone of the same sex is now recognized across Mexico. The practice remains illegal or not recognized in Paraguay, Bolivia, Peru, Venezuela, most of Central America, and much of the Caribbean. Survey on “Christian nationalism” Pew Research released a new survey on so-called Christian nationalism. Sixty percent of U.S. adults think America's founders intended for the country to be a Christian nation, and 45% think America should be a Christian nation. Of those who think the U.S. should be a Christian nation, 30% said they don't even know what being a Christian nation means. Forty-eight percent defined a Christian nation as a country where people are generally guided by Christian values. Only 6% defined it as a country that bases its laws on Christianity. Isaiah 33:22 says, “The LORD is our Judge, the LORD is our Lawgiver, the LORD is our King; He will save us.” Elon Musk let Twitter fly free After months of back and forth, tech billionaire Elon Musk finalized a deal to buy Twitter last Friday. Musk stepped into the chief executive position and dissolved the company's board of directors. As of next week, Twitter will not be publicly traded. In an open letter, Musk accused traditional media of fueling political polarization. In contrast, Musk said he acquired Twitter to encourage a “common digital town square, where a wide range of beliefs can be debated in a healthy manner.” 10,000 babies spared from abortion since Dobbs case FiveThirtyEight reports over 10,000 fewer abortions took place in the months following the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Overall, the number of abortions nationwide declined 6% between April and August. Some states experienced a near 100% decline in abortions, including Arkansas, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Texas. U.S. Senate is up for grabs Also from FiveThirtyEight, control of the U.S. Senate is now in a dead heat between Republicans and Democrats in the midterm elections. Projections also give Republicans substantial odds of taking back the U.S. House of Representatives. In the governors' races, Democrats are expected to flip Massachusetts and Maryland while Republicans have a good chance of flipping Nevada, Wisconsin, and Oregon.

Eastern European Missions made the delivery to the former communist bloc country after delivering 650,000 Bibles to public schools in Croatia last year. The ministry started out in the 1960s, smuggling between hundreds and thousands of Bibles into the Soviet Union. Now, Eastern European Missions delivers 1.5 million Bibles in over 20 languages to over 30 countries in a year. Revelation 5:9 says of Christ, “You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals; for You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation.” Close And that's The Worldview in 5 Minutes on this Wednesday, November 2nd, in the year of our Lord 2022.

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for November 1, 2022 is: sallow SAL-oh adjective Sallow means "of a grayish greenish yellow color," and often suggests sickliness. // She returned from her sick leave still looking a bit sallow. See the entry > Examples: "As a member of the 101st Airborne Division, Guy Whidden was among the first American paratroopers to head for Normandy in the early hours of June 6, 1944. The day before, he'd posed for a picture with a few of the other paratroopers. Sixty years later, he flashed the same impish grin, though his hair was white and his skin a little sallow." — Tamela Baker, The Herald-Mail (Hagerstown, Maryland), 25 Sept. 2022 Did you know? In Oscar Wilde's 1891 novel A Picture of Dorian Gray, Dorian's unscrupulous friend Lord Henry Wotton impresses upon the young Dorian what the process of aging will do, saying "Time is jealous of you, and wars against your lilies and your roses. You will become sallow, and hollow-cheeked, and dull-eyed." Literature of the 19th century abounds with sallow people—Charles Dickens applied the word to characters in no fewer than 12 novels—but the word had been in use with the same meaning for centuries before that literary heyday. Its synonymous Old English forbear is salu, which shares an ancestor with an Old High German word meaning "murky" as well as with a Russian word meaning "yellowish gray."
Sixty years ago, the Cuban missile crisis brought the world the closest it's ever been to a full-scale nuclear war. The story that's often told about those 13 days is one of American might triumphing over the USSR — but that's not what really happened. The true story of that crisis is actually about a relationship between two men who decided to secretly work together, to avert a global disaster. While we're certainly not in another Cuban missile crisis today, experts believe this is the closest the U.S. and Russia have come to a nuclear conflict since that time. So today, we're going to tell the story of those 13 days in 1962, and look at whether they may hold lessons for today. Our guest is Andrew Cohen, a professor at the University of Carleton's school of Journalism and Communication, and the author of several books including Two Days in June: John F. Kennedy and the 48 Hours That Made History.
The government says its funding boost for bus drivers will help address widespread worker shortages.

The air is getting cooler. The days are getting shorter. And the RPGrinders are back with one last episode before the celebration of the holiest of holidays, Samhain! It's once again time to celebrate the return of the dead. For one evening they will rejoin our plain of existence. The living and the dead will walk amongst each other. Some of the dead will torment the living. Some of the living will get a chance to get back that $5 that was borrowed right before the borrower died. All will celebrate the glory that is Samhain. The only way to properly start the celebration of Samhain, is with the traditional reading of the news. The celebration only lasts for a day but by the time you recover, on the 3rd of November, Sword and Fairy: Together Forever will be available on the Xbox. Unfortunately, several games don't arrive until long after the blessed day. Wo Long: Fallen Destiny, Loop8: Summer of Gods, and another update to Fallout 4 won't arrive until next year. It's not a widely known fact, but some of the dead only return for one night of movie binging. Television access in the afterlife is spotty, at best. With the dead in mind the Grinders have several great movie recommendations. If they are looking for a constant reminder of their own demise, 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later, and the legendary Night of the Living Dead! If the dead are just looking for some laughs, they may enjoy League of Super-Pets, the Rise of Gru, or the return of the stupidest teenagers in cartoon history: Beavis & Butt-Head! However, the dead should beware of movies like Morbius and the Sawyer Family Massacre. Those movies will make them wish they had stayed dead. On Samhain, we will feast. We will dance. We will celebrate and commit ritual sacrifices! Before the fun can begin, the Grinders need to address everyone's favorite segment, the Stinkos! Frank is forced to fight one of man's oldest foes, the common cold. Break is angry about America's lack of fundamental gun laws. But not as angry as Eric is about the vile Florida politicians attacks on the Trans community. Unlike shitty "conservatives", Samhain does not discriminate! With the worst out of the way, it is time to celebrate the greatest of all Sweetos: Samhain. Dia do los Muertos. All Saints Day. Or by which it is most commonly referred, Halloween! What better way to celebrate Samhain than to finally choose the Scariest Game of All Time?! Sixty-four games fought valiantly but now only the top four remain! What will be the scariest game of all time? Will Isaac be able to survive the horrors unleashed by cultist alien worshipers? Will a young college student save us all from the evil Ancients? Can detective Sebastian Castellanos survive the twisted world of Ruvik? Will Amanda Ripley find her mother or end up just another victim of the xenomorphs? They are all scary but which one will make you crap your pants? Samhain comes but once a year. The most wonderful time of the year! How the fuck do you pronounce 'Samhain'?? Saa-wn? Sow-Wen? Sow-Unn? Sau-ihn? Sah-vin?
Sixty-one million adults in the United States live with a disability — that's one in four adults, a staggering number when you consider how widespread ableism is. In a society that largely operates without adequate infrastructure, accommodations, and services for disabled people, what does the right to equal opportunity look like? In this episode, Tom and Claudia explore this question through the perspectives of three disabled individuals. Michael Stein is the executive director of the Harvard Law School Project on Disability, Elsa Sjunneson is a deafblind disability rights activist and science fiction writer, and Stephen Hallett is the Project Manager of the East Asia Disability Rights Project. Together, they help paint a picture of what it would really mean to take the rights of those with disabilities seriously.

(3:24) Dr. Bhakdi Clip (7:27) Study shows inexpensive, readily available chemical (GABA) may limit impact of COVID-19 University of California, Los Angeles, October 25, 2022 Preclinical studies in mice that model human COVID-19 suggest that an inexpensive, readily available amino acid might limit the effects of the disease and provide a new off-the-shelf therapeutic option for infections with SARS-CoV-2 variants and perhaps future novel coronaviruses. A team led by researchers at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA report in Frontiers in Immunology that an amino acid called GABA, which is available over-the-counter in many countries, reduced disease severity, viral load in the lungs, and death rates in SARS-CoV-2-infected mice. This follows up on their previous finding that GABA consumption also protected mice from another lethal mouse coronavirus called MHV-1. In both cases, GABA treatment was effective when given just after infection or several days later near the peak of virus production. The protective effects of GABA against two different types of coronaviruses suggest that GABA may provide a generalizable therapy to help treat diseases induced by new SARS-CoV-2 variants and novel beta-coronaviruses. Their previous studies showed that GABA administration protected mice from developing severe disease after infection with a mouse coronavirus called MHV-1. To more stringently test the potential of GABA as a therapy for COVID-19, they studied transgenic mice that when infected with SARS-CoV-2 develop severe pneumonia with a high mortality rate. “If our observations of the protective effects of GABA therapy in SARS-CoV-2-infected mice are confirmed in clinical trials, GABA could provide an off-the-shelf treatment to help ameliorate infections with SARS-CoV-2 variants. GABA is inexpensive and stable at room temperature, which could make it widely and easily accessible, and especially beneficial in developing countries.” The researchers said that GABA and GABA receptors are most often thought of as a major neurotransmitter system in the brain. Years ago, they, as well as other researchers, found that cells of the immune system also possessed GABA receptors and that the activation of these receptors inhibited the inflammatory actions of immune cells. Taking advantage of this property, the authors reported in a series of studies that GABA administration inhibited autoimmune diseases such as type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and rheumatoid arthritis in mouse models of these ailments. Other scientists who study gas anesthetics have found that lung epithelial cells also possess GABA receptors and that drugs that activate these receptors could limit lung injuries and inflammation in the lung. The dual actions of GABA in inflammatory immune cells and lung epithelial cells, along with its safety for clinical use, made GABA a theoretically appealing candidate for limiting the overreactive immune responses and lung damage due to coronavirus infection. Working with colleagues at the University of Southern California, the UCLA research team in this study administered GABA to the mice just after infection with SARS-CoV-2, or two days later when the virus levels are near their peak in the mouse lungs. While the vast majority of untreated mice did not survive this infection, those given GABA just after infection, or two days later, had less illness severity and a lower mortality rate over the course of the study. Treated mice also displayed reduced levels of virus in their lungs and changes in circulating immune signaling molecules, known as cytokines and chemokines, toward patterns that were associated with better outcomes in COVID-19 patients. Thus, GABA receptor activation had multiple beneficial effects in this mouse model that are also desirable for the treatment of COVID-19. Yoga as effective as traditional pulmonary rehab in patients with COPD All India Institute of Medical Sciences (India), October 19, 2022 Researchers from the Department of Pulmonary Medicine and Sleep Disorders and All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India, studied the effects of yoga as a form of pulmonary rehabilitation on markers of inflammation in the body. Results from this study showed yoga exercises provide improvements that are just as effective as traditional pulmonary rehabilitation methods in improving pulmonary function, exercise capacity, and indices of systemic inflammation. Sixty patients with COPD were randomly divided into two groups, one of which was taught yoga exercises while the other underwent a structured pulmonary rehabilitation program. These groups were tested on shortness of breath, serum inflammation, and lung function tests. Each group participated in 1 hour of training twice a week for the first 4 weeks, then training every 2 weeks for 8 weeks, and the remaining weeks were at home. Results showed that yoga and pulmonary rehabilitation exercises resulted in similar improvements in pulmonary function, 6-minute walk distance, Borg scale, severity of dyspnea, quality of life, and levels of C-reactive protein after 12 weeks of training. “This study suggests yoga may be a cost-effective form of rehabilitation that is more convenient for patients,” said Mark J. Rosen, MD, Master FCCP, CHEST Medical Director. “The authors recommended adoption of yoga programs as an option as part of long-term management of COPD. These findings should be confirmed in new studies and the potential mechanisms explored.” Resveratrol can help correct hormone imbalance in women with PCOS University of California, San Diego, October 19, 2022 Resveratrol–a natural compound found in red wine and grapes–can help address a hormone imbalance in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a leading cause of infertility in women, according to a study published in the Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. Women who have PCOS produce slightly higher amounts of testosterone and other androgen hormones than average. Although these reproductive hormones are typically associated with men, women also have small amounts. The elevated levels in women with PCOS can contribute to irregular or absent menstrual periods, infertility, weight gain, acne or excess hair on the face and body. Women who have PCOS also face a higher risk of developing other health problems, such as diabetes. “Our study is the first clinical trial to find resveratrol significantly lowers PCOS patients' levels of testosterone as well as dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS), another hormone that the body can convert into testosterone,” said the study's senior author, Antoni J. Duleba, MD, of the University of California, San Diego in La Jolla, CA. “This nutritional supplement can help moderate the hormone imbalance that is one of the central features of PCOS.” Thirty women with PCOS completed the randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial conducted at Poznan University of Medical Sciences in Poland. The women were randomly assigned to either take a resveratrol supplement or a placebo pill daily for three months. The participants had blood samples drawn at the beginning and end of the study to determine levels of testosterone and other androgen hormones. The researchers found total testosterone levels fell by 23.1 percent among the women who received the resveratrol supplement. In comparison, testosterone levels increased 2.9 percent in the placebo group. DHEAS declined by 22.2 percent in the resveratrol group, while the placebo group experienced a 10.5 percent increase in DHEAS levels. In addition to moderating androgen hormones, the women who received resveratrol showed improvement in diabetes risk factors. Among the resveratrol group, fasting insulin levels dropped by 31.8 percent during the three-month study. The researchers also found the women who received resveratrol during the study became more responsive to the hormone insulin over the course of the study. Fluoridated water calcifies your arteries: study University of Zaragoza (Spain), October 22, 2014 A major promoter of heart disease in the U.S. today could be a chemical that the government has been intentionally dumping into the water supply for decades on the premise that it prevents tooth decay. Fluoride, according to a study published in the journal Toxicology, shows demonstrated cardiotoxic effects, which include the calcification and hardening of arteries. Researchers from the University of Zaragoza in Spain looked at the effects of water fluoridation on the progression of vascular calcification in renal (kidney) disease. The team used real-world concentrations of fluoride as recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) for optimal oral health — 1.5 milligrams per liter (mg/L) — administering this amount to rats via water in the same way humans would receive it. It was observed that, for five days, the rats, all of whom had experimental chronic kidney disease (CKD), experienced calcification of their aortic smooth muscle cells. The rats also experienced further declines in renal function as a result of exposure to fluoride, demonstrating the nephrotoxicity of this common water additive. “[F]luoridation of drinking water… dramatically increased the incipient aortic calcification observed in rats with experimental chronic kidney disease,” wrote the authors. “[T]he WHO's recommended concentrations in drinking water become nephrotoxic to CKD rats, thereby aggravating renal disease and making media vascular calcification significant.” Previous research, as noted in the new study, has confirmed that 90 percent or more of digested fluoride is absorbed through the intestines and distributed throughout the body to soft tissues, calcified structures and blood plasma. At WHO-recommended doses, fluoride can still get lodged throughout the body and remain there for many years. In healthy individuals, plasma fluoride is cleared through the dual action of calcifying tissues and expelling through the kidneys. But in those with renal disease, the kidneys are not up to the task of removing fluoride from the body, greatly amplifying both the calcification process and the advancement of renal failure. Lower magnesium levels linked with increased mortality risk during up to 40 years of follow-up Jiao Tong University School of Medicine (China), October 20 2022. In an article in the journal Clinical Nutrition, Xi Zhang of Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine and colleagues reported an association between decreased serum levels of magnesium and a greater risk of dying from any cause during a follow-up period of up to 40 years. The study included data from 14,343 participants in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey I Epidemiologic Follow-Up Study. There were 9,012 deaths during a median follow-up of 28.6 years. In comparison with subjects whose serum magnesium levels were between 0.8 and 0.89 micromoles per liter (mmol/L), having a deficient level of less than 0.7 mmol/L was associated with an adjusted 34% greater risk of dying over follow-up. Those with magnesium levels of less than 0.7 mmol/L had more than two and a half times the risk of dying from stroke than subjects with magnesium levels of 0.8-0.89 mmol/L. Further analysis found the strongest protective association for magnesium in men. “Several mechanisms may explain the beneficial effects of magnesium, including maintaining glucose and insulin homeostasis, improving lipid metabolism, enhancing the vascular or myocardial contractility and vasodilation, and providing antiarrhythmic and antiplatelet effects,” the authors write. “Moreover, several small secondary prevention randomized trials have shown that oral magnesium supplementation improved endothelial function, reduced thrombosis, and increased cardiopulmonary function and left ventricular ejection fraction among cardiovascular disease patients.” “Our findings support the hypothesis that serum magnesium may be clinically useful for predicting long-term health outcomes and mortality in the general population,” they conclude. Anxiety Makes It Harder to Listen to Your Intuition Freie Universität Berlin, Psychologische Hochschule Berlin, University of Basel, October 19, 2022 As an anxious person, I find the mantra “go with your gut” endlessly frustrating. What's so trustworthy about my gut instinct, which has, at various times, convinced me I'm dying of brain cancer, or about to get on an airplane doomed to crash, or destined to be alone forever? My therapist has had to remind me many times over that my so-called instincts have been wrong before and will be wrong again. But I've remained somewhat convinced that there is a “real” gut instinct somewhere beneath all my fake ones, and if only I knew how to access it, I would finally be perfectly wise, centered, and calm. A new study suggests this is probably not the case. In their study, researchers attempted to examine and compare the intuitive decision-making abilities of anxious, neutral, and optimistic people. More than a hundred participants were randomly assigned to each of these three groups, and “inducted” into the corresponding mood by viewing a series of emotionally coded sentences and images. For example, participants in the optimism group read: “The affection of those we love makes us feel particularly safe and confident. There is always someone who loves us,” and were then shown a picture of a smiling young couple with a shark mascot. (Huh.) Those in the anxious group read: “Safety is not guaranteed neither in our neighborhoods nor in our own homes,” followed by a picture of a man with his arm hooked around a woman's neck. I'm anxious just reading about it. Once the mood was set, participants were asked to fill out a questionnaire designed to assess their tendency to make intuitive decisions, and how effectively they did so. While the researchers found that the decision-making abilities of the positive and the neutral mood groups were relatively unaffected by their moods, the anxious group showed a significantly reduced ability to use their intuition. The researchers hypothesized that anxiety's effects on our decision-making is damaging for several reasons: Anxiety makes us risk-averse, pessimistic, and less confident — all qualities which make us likelier to choose what we perceive as the most safe, routine, and unchallenging decision. In some cases, anxiety can also effectively paralyze us, resulting in no decision made at all. Using one's intuition, the researchers argue, requires confidence and trust in oneself. If anxious people don't have that confidence and trust, they may be more likely to ignore subtle emotional or bodily cues which indicate a “hunch.” BFor many anxious people, the psychosomatic symptom possibilities are endless, and only infrequently indicate that something is actually wrong. In many cases, it's wiser for us to ignore these “signs” and symptoms than to take them seriously.

It's Wednesday, October 26th, A.D. 2022. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. (Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Jonathan Clark Nigerian Muslims killed 70 Christians last week Morning Star News reports Fulani herdsmen killed 70 Christians in central Nigeria last week. Herdsmen also injured 100 Christians in the area recently, displacing thousands. Local officials are calling for people to defend themselves given the national government's inability to curb violence. Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ in Nigeria, ranked ninth on the Open Doors World Watch list of nations where it is most difficult to be a Christian. Britain now urging caution about transgender foolishness for minors Britain's National Health Service is now urging caution in treating children pretending to be the opposite sex, saying it is generally a “transient phase.” New proposals from the NHS “reflect evidence that in most cases gender incongruence does not persist into adolescence.” The new approach comes after Tavistock Centre shut down. It was the only medical facility in the U.K. dedicated to offering puberty blockers and mutilating surgeries for people with gender confusion. California court supported Christian baker in “gay” marriage case Last Friday, a California court ruled in favor of a Christian baker who refused to bake a cake for a homosexual wedding ceremony in 2017. Cathy Miller owns Tastries bakery in Bakersfield, California and has faced years of litigation for her Christian beliefs about marriage. In a 2017 interview, Miller said she could not violate her conscience or Scripture. MILLER: “Our family are Christians we love everyone God created everyone there's certain things that violate my conscience my conscience will not allow me to participate in things that I feel are wrong. That's based on Scripture.” 1 Peter 3:15-16 says, “Sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed.” Undercover pro-life activist ordered to pay $2.4 million to murder giant Meanwhile, a U.S. federal appeals court ruled David Daleiden and other pro-life activists must pay $2.4 million in fines to Planned Parenthood for conducting an undercover investigation of the abortion giant. The investigation exposed Planned Parenthood's harvesting and selling of baby body parts. The Thomas Moore Society is representing Daleiden and will appeal the decision. Peter Breen, the vice president of the legal group, said, “This decision provides a roadmap for large corporations to shut down and bankrupt investigative journalists who would expose their wrongdoing.” Proverbs 17:15 says, “He who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the just, both of them alike are an abomination to the LORD.” White House bracing to lose both House and Senate Reuters reports the White House is bracing for potentially losing both chambers of Congress in the midterms next month. Voter support for Democrats surged in the summer but is now stalling. Meanwhile recent polls show Republicans are gaining ground in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. In the last couple of months, ABC News and FiveThirtyEight reports that generic-ballot polls are moving toward Republicans. FiveThirtyEight also reports most candidates who think the 2020 presidential election was rigged are favored to win their races. Students' reading and math scores slump The National Assessment of Educational Progress released their latest report card for U.S. kids this week. Student reading and math scores dropped to lows not seen since the 1990s. The learning setback was evident across every state in the wake of COVID-19 policies that suspended in-person learning. Only 21% of Americans attend church weekly And finally, a new Rasmussen survey found that most Americans say they are religious but only a minority attend religious services weekly. Sixty-nine percent of U.S. adults consider themselves religious, up from 57% in June 2021. Respondents also report how much they attend religious services: 41% rarely attend or never attend, 21% attend occasionally, 13% attend at least monthly, and 21% attend at least weekly. Forty-two percent of respondents said the U.S. would be better off if more people attended religious services on a regular basis, while 30% said it wouldn't make a difference. The study found that married respondents were much more likely to say they were very religious compared with non-married respondents.

This week's episode is all about the unexpected hero from a place we would never suspect. This week we're taking a look back at the film 'Hellboy' from 2004. Written and directed by Guillermo Del Toro, 'Hellboy' is a superhero/action film that is based upon the comic book story originally created by author Mike Mignola. In the film, a demonic beast-turned superhero known as Hellboy secretly works to keep the world safe from paranormal threats with his team, the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense. Is this one of director Guillermo Del Toro's finer works? We discuss this and more on our episode this week! Plot: At the end of World War II, the Nazis attempt to open a portal to a paranormal dimension in order to defeat the Allies, but are only able to summon a baby demon who is rescued by Allied forces and dubbed "Hellboy". Sixty years later, Hellboy serves as an agent in the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense, where he, aided by Abe Sapien, a merman with psychic powers, and Liz Sherman, a woman with pyrokinesis, protects America against dark forces.

Sixty-five horses live at Tamara Boole's equestrian center. That is a lot of large animals to move to safety in a short period of time. But that's what had to be done as the fires from the CZU Lightning Complex Fires bore down on Felton, California in August 2020.Thanks to local ranchers, including another stable owner - Michelle Le Clair, the horses at Tamara Boole's Covered Bridge Equestrian Center were safely evacuated in the knick of time.We also speak to vet and UC Davis Veterinary Emergency Response Team member Dr. Lais Costa, about how to safely evacuate horses, chickens, house cats, and even llamas!For more information on this episode or to share your own story, visit OnStar's website.
This week the podcast has focused on the hymn “Amazing Grace.” John Newton wrote the lyrics in 1772. Sixty years later they were joined to the melody we now know. But the title was not set until nearly a hundred years after the lyrics were written. Dwight Moody and Ira Sankey published the song with the title “Amazing Grace.” When John Newton first wrote it, he gave this title, “1 Chronicles 17:16–17, Faith's Review and Expectation.”* I bet you didn't know that. I am so glad Moody and Sankey gave it the current title. Here's something else you may not know, the fifth verse of the hymn. Many hymnals leave it out. That's too bad, because it is part of the natural progression of the verses. The first verse focuses on the experience of salvation by grace. Then they focus on the grace present in our suffering which secures our future. This verse starts with our death and ends with life. It goes like this, "Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,And mortal life shall ceaseI shall possess within the veil,A life of joy and peace." It reminds us of 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14, “Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.” (NIV)
Ten years ago the Catholic Church happily celebrated the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council. Most people thought it was a good thing – and those who had their doubts were careful to express them diplomatically. Sixty years on, by contrast, Vatican II is the source of rancorous division in a collapsing Church. Liberals, describing themselves as 'The People of God', are invoking it to propose surreal changes to the doctrine that would have scandalised the Council fathers. They like to portray the forthcoming two Synods on Synodality – whose consultations attracted only a minuscule number of lay Catholics – as the fulfilment of Vatican II. Even, in some circles, as a sort of Vatican III. Meanwhile, traditionalists, assured by Benedict XVI that they could attend the Latin Mass without rejecting the Council, are now regularly mocked by Pope Francis for their 'rigidity'. He's busy banning their Masses, claiming that they're incompatible with Vatican II. And some traditionalists are wondering if he's right – in the sense that it was the Council that sowed the seeds of what they regard as the Bergoglian heresy. Conspiracy theories abound. In this episode of Holy Snoke I ask whether, considering not just this present nastiness but also the failure of the 'People of God' to meet the evangelical challenges of the Council, it might have been better if Vatican II had never happened.

It's Wednesday, October 19th, A.D. 2022. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. (Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Jonathan Clark Iranian Christian man, with Parkinson's disease, in jail Iranian authorities detained a Christian couple in Tehran's Evin Prison back in August. This month, Christian Solidarity International asks for prayer for Homayoun Zhaveh–who suffers from advanced Parkinson's disease–and his wife, Sara Ahmadi. The two have been sentenced to years in prison for participating in a house church. Christian converts in Iran are not recognized, and house churches are frequently raided as “illegal” groups. Dozens of Iranian Christians in recent years have received prison sentences of up to 15 years. Iran is ranked ninth on the Open Doors' World Watch List of nations where it is most difficult to be a Christian. China President Xi Jinping headed to third term China's Communist Party is meeting this week for their 20th National Congress. President Xi Jinping is expected to get an unprecedented third term as the leader of the Communist Party and the head of China's military forces. Meanwhile, the U.S. is cracking down on American companies selling advanced semiconductors to China. The goal is to slow China's technological and military development. Taiwan, South Korea, and the U.S. continue to outperform China in the manufacturing of high-end computer chips. Million Mexicans march for life Last weekend, over a million people marched across Mexico for the protection of human life. Activists read a manifesto in Mexico City, calling for the life of every human being to be protected equally before and after birth. Most of Mexico's states still have protections for unborn babies, but the lawmakers are facing international pressure to legalize abortion on demand. Update on Christian baker Jack Phillips Colorado Christian baker Jack Phillips is back in court. Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop is appealing a ruling from last year that found him guilty of discrimination. He had refused to bake a cake to celebrate someone pretending to be the opposite sex. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of Phillips in 2018 in a similar case. The case involved his refusal to bake a cake to celebrate homosexuality. Alliance Defending Freedom continues to represent Phillips in his fight for religious freedom. You can support his defense through a link in our transcript today at TheWorldview.com. Psalm 14:4 asks, “Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge, who eat up My people as they eat bread, and do not call on the LORD?” Poll: 76% of voters say education important A new poll from Rasmussen found education is an important issue for U.S. voters. Seventy-seven percent of likely voters believe education issues will be important in this year's congressional elections, and 45% believe it will be very important. Sixty-eight percent of voters are worried that public schools are promoting controversial beliefs and attitudes with 49% saying they are very concerned. Last October, 76% of voters were concerned about what public schools were teaching. Social Security recipients get 8.2% increase The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that prices rose by 8.2% last month on an annual basis. In the face of surging inflation, Social Security recipients will get an 8.7% increase in their benefits next year. It's the largest cost-of-living adjustment in 40 years. A survey by the American Advisors Group found nearly a third of seniors say they are delaying retirement or are never planning to retire as consumer costs continue to rise. The impact of Scripture And finally, the American Bible Society released their latest findings from the 2022 State of the Bible report. The study found 92% of Bible Users say the Bible has transformed their life. Even 38% of non-Bible Users say the same. Bible Users are defined as those who read the Bible at least three to four times a year on their own. The report also found people who are “Scripture Engaged” were the most likely to strongly agree they can forgive others. “Scripture Engaged” individuals are impacted daily by the Bible and regularly read and engage with the Bible. 2 Peter 1:19 says, “We also have the prophetic word strongly confirmed, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.” Close And that's The Worldview in 5 Minutes on this Wednesday, October 19th, in the year of our Lord 2022.
