Congressional Republicans are like a pathetic victim of bullying. When faced with a challenge, they draw up into a ball and beg not to be kicked.
What would 2014 and beyond look like if we as people decided to generously share both our life in faith and money with no expectation of return? Well, it would set us free to experience blessing. A few days ago a total stranger shared generously with me. When I tried to thank her and give back, she refused with a smile on her faith. It caught me off guard. It was an action that was so counter cultural. We live in a world where we give and usually expect something in return. In our popular market driven worldview, our money and faith lives are linked in that they are both means of reciprocity. I trade my time and talent to get money, and then I trade money to get what I need or want.
More Americans than ever feel our federal government has been permanently taken over by special interests and collectivists.
The uproar was quieted a little on Tuesday afternoon when it was announced that the wrestling season in Arizona was restored.
For $200 you can go to an electronics story, buy a remote control helicopter, strap a camera to it and fly it over you're neighbor's property and peek through the windows.
The decision from the AIA on the wrestling postponement came late Monday afternoon with no real answers.
The holidays are over, the calendar has turned a new page and, like many people, you find yourself with a renewed enthusiasm for self-improvement. According to statistics from the University of Scranton, nearly half of Americans regularly make New Year’s resolutions, with weight loss, organization and improved finances ranking among their top three goals.

Our state Legislature’s back in session.
According to a recent study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology, only 8 percent of people who make New Year’s resolutions will successfully achieve their chosen goal. This begs the question… Why is it that so many people fall short of their resolutions?
The chapter of 2013 is closed, and by the time this ‘Tukee Talk is published 2014 will be 10 days old, meaning many are still trying to stick to their New Year’s resolutions.
There’s something about the beginning of a new year that makes us feel like we have a new lease on life. Although many joke about the making and breaking of New Year’s resolutions, the University of Scranton’s Journal of Clinical Psychology released a study at the end of last year that showed those who made New Year’s resolutions were 10 times more likely to reach their goals than those who did not.
Most of us make resolutions but not all of us stick to them.
State officials and mental health advocates approved an historic deal Wednesday to provide more services for the seriously mentally ill, bringing an end to a 33-year-old lawsuit.
It doesn’t take rocket science to make the case for happiness, but a law degree from Yale sure doesn’t hurt — at least, it didn’t in the case of Gretchen Rubin, author of “The Happiness Project” and a guest columnist for Good Housekeeping magazine. In contrast to other self-help writers, Rubin addresses the ephemeral idea of happiness systematically, arguing that life’s felicities are concrete and often intuitive.
"Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.” said Oprah Winfrey. I am not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions, but I do believe goals should be set, worked for, and attained. If one of your resolutions has been to get your computer more organized, the best place to start is creating folders to store your important documents, pictures and emails in a place where you can easily find them.
So have you made some? You know what I mean. Have you made some New Year’s resolutions? Something about January and the need to change the number when we write the date that drives us to make bold declarations about how we are going to amend our lives for the next 365 days. Chances are you are a much better person than I am, but I was never very good at keeping New Year’s resolutions. For years I made the one about losing some weight — a lot of weight actually. Not much success there. And then there is the one about getting more exercise. There are cobwebs on the spokes of my bike.
The year is almost over, and throughout the year schools across Ahwatukee saw many things that will surely be remembered.
New Year’s resolutions were first practiced in ancient Rome when worshippers offered good conduct to the god Janus. Resolving to change in the new year continues today. Researchers estimate that about 60 percent of those who make New Year’s resolutions fail.
About 45 percent of Americans usually make New Year’s resolutions, according to a survey from the University of Scranton. But the same survey shows that only 8 percent of us actually keep our resolutions. Perhaps this low success rate isn’t such a tragedy when our resolutions involve things like losing a little weight or learning a foreign language. But when we make financial resolutions — resolutions that, if achieved, could significantly help us in our pursuit of our important long-term goals — it’s clearly worthwhile to make every effort to follow through.
For most scribes who have toiled in the movie industry, portraying Hollywood as a healing paradise is roughly equivalent to regaling a lobster of the soothing properties of a boiling pot of water.
Once upon a time, people who craved a tablet computer bought an iPad.
Ahhh, it’s that time of the year again. The holiday traditions take us home for the holidays to reunite with parents, siblings, cousins and old friends. Often this experience is joyous and as it should be, a time to appreciate one another, reminisce about the past and enjoy food, wine, gifts and conversation.
