    Steinem, Quinn, Fields to be 'Charlie's Angels' at Rangel Fund-RaiserBy Reid Pillifant June 10, 2010 | 12:28 p.m A group of women billing themselves as "Charlie's Angels" is hosting a fund-raiser later this month for Charlie Rangel's re-election. The invite for the June 21 event includes a long list of "Angels," which leads with some of Harlem's elite--Alma Rangel, Joyce Dinkins, Portia Paterson and Leatrice Sutton. Also on the list: Council Speaker Christine Quinn; Councilwomen Inez Dickens and Jessica Lappin; former Manhattan Borough President C.

  • Is There A Spiritual World?

    In today's technological age, it might seem silly for intelligent people to consider a spiritual world where beings we cannot see might exist. Oh it's fine to read books and watch Hollywood movies about the afterlife and spirits that roam the netherworld but that's all make believe, not the real world. In the real world we are taught that reality consists of what we can touch, taste, see, hear, smell, and that the spirit world is for those weak minded individuals who use religion as a crutch to get through the day.  However, what if I told you that...

    Bozeman Daily Chronicle ^ | February 4, 2010 | AMANDA RICKER
    Bozeman Police Officer Marek Ziegler was called to Van’s IGA last Friday night to check on a shoplifting report. The 33-year-old officer has been on the Bozeman force for three years. He is a K-9 handler and works nights, from about 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. When he got to the grocery store on North Seventh Avenue, employees told Ziegler that a 32-year-old man had stuffed food and “pens, pencils, maybe markers, things for his kids” into his coat. The officer arrested the man, cited him for theft and then released him. But the story didn’t end there. Ziegler had...

    LONDON, A London scientist has authored a paper arguing angels as classically depicted, mostly-human forms with wings, would be unable to fly. Professor Roger Wotton of University College London wrote in his paper, which was published by the school's Opticon magazine, that human-appearing angels with feathered bird-like wings would not be able to use the wings for flight, The Daily Telegraph reported Tuesday. "Even a cursory examination of the evidence in representational arts shows that angels and cherubs cannot take off and cannot use powered flight," Wotton wrote. "And even if they used gliding flight, they would need to be...

    Angels, those winged creatures atop Christmas trees and a perennial subject for movies, long have captured the human imagination. But for most religious people, angels are far from imaginary. They are not merely cultural conceptions, symbols or myths. Indeed, angels play a vital role in the relationship between humans and the divine, according to teachings of the world's dominant religions. Judaism, Christianity and Islam all believe in angels and share a common notion -- that angels do God's work, including communication with humans. The very word "angel" is from the Greek translation of the Hebrew word for messenger, "mal'ach." Many...

    Get Religion ^ | October 24, 2009
    As we all know, as as numerous stacks of research have shown, only really stupid, illogical, fact-challenged people believe that God played some meaningful role in the creation of heaven and earth. Right?I mean, facts are facts and journalism is all about the facts. Still, I am happy to report that the New York Times ran an essay the other day that opened the currents of science just a bit and showed us the kind of things that linear, logical scientists think about when things go bump in the dark, or when they go bump in the light. This is...
  • Could Aliens Actually be Fallen Angels?

    I think that to completely dismiss the "alien" abductions and UFO sightings is just not very intelligent. The truth is that SOME THING is doing these things. People have their unborne babies taken with no trace. People awake with peices of symetrical metal under their skin with no visible mark. People have thousands of hours of UFO videos, of which SOME are quite legitimate. There have been millions who have said they've been abducted. I highly doubt that every single one is lying. Even if just 5 people are telling the truth then there IS somthing "out there". As a...

    It was bad news if you were a fan looking forward to Game 6 tonight. But when the official announcement of a rainout was made in New York, it was good news for the Angels. Now Mike Scioscia will have all sorts of options with his starting rotation, including the strong possibility that he could come back with John Lackey, on three days' rest, in a potential Game 7 on Monday. It also means he not only will have Joe Saunders starting Game 6, but he could have Jered Weaver, who had been scheduled to start Game 7, available in...

    Game 6 of the AL championship series between the Los Angeles Angels and New York Yankees was postponed because of rain Saturday. The game was rescheduled for 8:20 p.m. Sunday at Yankee Stadium. New York leads the best-of-seven series 3-2 and needs one victory to clinch its 40th pennant and reach the World Series for the first time since 2003. Game 7, if necessary, will be Monday in New York at 7:57 p.m. “The one thing is, you don’t want to stop and start, and we don’t know when the rain is going to get out of here,” Yankees manager...

    Personally, the video you are about to watch is pretty amazing: I would say this is pretty conclusive evidence of why Yankees pitcher Mariano Rivera is able to throw only one pitch that has unpredictable, yet precise movement. He has mastered the Angels so far in the ALCS but has Major League Baseball gotten a look at how he "warms up" for his appearance on the mound? You be the judge... * With a tie game in the bottom of the 10th, the Yankees bring in Rivera. * After warming up, he has his back to home plate so the...

    How Sweep It Is: Angels Exorcise Demons, Defeat Boston in Playoffs by Johnathan Kroncke Scribe Written on October 11, 2009 BOSTON - OCTOBER 11: The Angels were beaten. They had to be. Down 5-2 in the eighth inning and facing two stellar relievers lined up to close the game, they could only look to tomorrow and a Game Four match-up between Joe Saunders and Jon Lester. Or at least, that's what it looked like. But appearances can be deceiving. Once again, I must defer to the great linguist Yogi Berra who famously declared, “It ain't over 'till it's over.” Unbelievably,...
