Carl De Asis Dioleste : MMDA 'disappointed' over Dan Brown’s depiction of Manila in latest novel WHY DENY IT ???
(MMDA 'disappointed' over Dan Brown’s depiction of Manila in latest novel...)
"We are displeased of how you have used Manila as a venue and source of character’s breakdown and trauma, much more her disillusionment in humanity,” read the letter dated May 23.
One character from the novel, Sienna Brooks, joined a humanitarian mission to Manila only to be shocked by its poverty and then raped by local ruffians.
An excerpt from the book goes: “When the group settled in among the throngs in the city of Manila—the most densely populated city on earth—Sienna could only gape in horror. She had never seen poverty on this scale.”
The novel likewise described that the city has “six-hour traffic jams, suffocating pollution, and a horrifying sex trade, whose workers consisted primarily of young children, many of whom had been sold to pimps by parents who took solace in knowing that at least their children would be fed.”
“More than your portrayal of it, Metro Manila is the center of Filipino spirit, faith and hope… Manila citizens are more than capable of exemplifying good character and compassion towards each other, something your novel has failed to acknowledge,” Tolentino stressed.
“Truly, our place is an entry to heaven,” he added, reversing Brown’s depiction of Manila as “gates of hell.”
“We hope that this letter enlightens you and may it guide you the next time you cite Manila in any of your works,” the MMDA chairman noted. —KG, GMA News 9 seconds ago - View -

Win Bassett : Marilynne Robinson’s sort of Christianity I added a footnote, linking to Robinson's wonderful The Paris Review interview. Don't miss this.
"I don’t like categories like religious and not religious. As soon as religion draws a line around itself it becomes falsified. It seems to me that anything that is written compassionately and perceptively probably satisfies every definition of religious whether a writer intends it to be religious or not.
Religion is a framing mechanism. It is a language of orientation that presents itself as a series of questions. It talks about the arc of life and the quality of experience in ways that I’ve found fruitful to think about. Religion has been profoundly effective in enlarging human imagination and expression. It’s only very recently that you couldn’t see how the high arts are intimately connected to religion." 13 seconds ago - View -

as per recent survey by Zee News only 3% of INDIANs are on social web sites and 18% of peoples are not having electricity, phone or bicycle. congress want to keep intake these 18% of people in same condition to secure their vote bank and divide middle class on the name of religion, cast and region.
George Keely : Good morning every one. Yesterday was a very bad day. My wife Sharon and I went to see her heart Doctor. The lead wire that goes the bottom of her heart is not working right, so it has to be replaced with a new one. They will use a laser to cut scare tissue that has formed around the wire so they can remove it. then they will put a new lead wire in. If that doesn't work the way it needs to they will put a third lead wire in to the side of her heart. That means they will have to replace the defibrillator for three wires. This will be done June 6th and if everything is ok she will come home on the 7th. 13 seconds ago - View -

The McCormacks from Nenagh Tipperary : It is with an enormous amount of sadness that we have to report the passing in the early hours of this morning Australian time of our beloved Imelda Mary (Mel) McCormack, nee Coombes, wife of the late Herbert Patrick (Sam for short ) McCormack who as you all know, wrote the wonderful family biography. Mel was 84 years old.
Mel had dementia and was ill for some time before her passing.
The entire McCormack clan I am sure will join us in sending out heartfelt condolences to her three children, Robert, Ann, and Brian and their families.
A funeral service will be held in Western Australia where she spent the last few years of her life near Brian. Her ashes will be taken to Evans Head to be interred alongside Sam later in the year, possibly in July. A memorial service is expected to be held there for those who cannot get over to Perth. We will give you more details on this as they become known.
Mel and Sam travelled extensively in the UK and USA to research the book and were loved and respected by many. We feel it a fitting tribute to them both to include the news of her passing on the Family Facebook Wall. Sam did so much to promote family unity and would love to have been a part of this social media networking. We feel sure he would approve of the "instant" way the news can be conveyed whereas only a few years ago, it would have meant many international phone calls.
If there is someone not on Facebook who you think may have known Sam and Mel, would you please on our behalf, pass on the very sad news. 14 seconds ago - View -

Dawn Kopman Whidden : Mike
Dec 13, 2012 Mike rated it 4 of 5 stars
A good story that captured my attention. One of those books that is not easily classified into genre. Not so much a "Whodunit" as a "Whydunit"... Why would such a sweet little boy do the awful things that he seems to have done? No one can quite get a handle on it.
While not a murder mystery in the classic sense there are aspects of mystery to it, as well as suspense, an occasional literary flourish, and some romance (a genre I'm not a big fan of but in this case it fit well in the overall story without getting too sappy).
The characters are well developed and realistic. It uses both first person and third person narrative, switching back and forth between three characters - child psychiatrist Hope Rubin, policeman Marty Keal and homicide detective Jean Whitley - without ever becoming the slightest bit confusing or hard to follow. Very smoothly and nicely done!
There were several moments I didn't see coming at all -- when I thought I had the end all figured out there was one final twist waiting to prove me wrong. It gets a little sentimental when it comes to the children being cared for in a facility for troubled children (who can blame someone for being sentimental about children?) and on the subject of family.
If you're strictly a fan of mystery and suspense then this may not be the book for you. If you're willing to try something a little different that mixes genres and leans a little more towards the area of character study and psychological issues then it's definitely worth taking a look.
Generally if I'm caught up in a story I have a tendency to not notice sparing use of profanity/strong language too much, so I'm not absolutely certain but I do seem to recall one or two instances of strong language in the book, plus there are a few places in the story with brief descriptions of violence that would not be suitable to very sensitive readers. 17 seconds ago - View -
Matthew 15:27, "But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children's bread and cast it unto the dogs."
MATTHEW 15:21-39; MARK 7:24-37; 8:1-10
It is very clear in scripture that Jesus was sent to fulfill God's covenant to the Jews. However, it was equally clear that Jesus would open up faith unto the Gentiles. Jesus certainly knew this, and had already ministered to numerous Gentiles without the apparent disdain that we see here with the Syro-Phoenician woman. Jesus could not have been forced into ministering to this woman's daughter if it was not His will to do so. Therefore, His silence and rough answer to this woman must have been designed to accomplish a positive result.
Humility is an important ingredient of faith. This woman was a stranger to the covenants of promise and had no right to demand anything. Jesus' silence and then comparison of her to a dog would certainly have offended an arrogant person, and it is possible that for this very reason, Jesus tried her faith. Jesus didn't need to do this with the centurion in Luke 7:6-7 because the centurion had already humbled himself.
An integral part of faith is seeking God alone with your whole heart. If we are concerned about what people think and gaining their approval (or honor), we will never take a stand in faith for anything. After all we might be criticized for it. This one thing has probably stopped as many people from receiving from God as anything else. You cannot be a "man-pleaser" and please God at the same time. Satan uses persecutions to steal away God's Word and, thereby, stop our faith. To see faith work, we must say with Paul, "let God be true, but every man a liar" (Rom. 3:4). 17 seconds ago - View -
