“Transcendence” is a movie all about questions. Not because the plot is overly complex or difficult to follow, but because it raises so many ethical dilemmas. Has technology gone too far? Will technology bring us into a new age of enlightenment or be our ultimate downfall? Could technology one day give a person the power of a god? Should a person have the power of a god, even if they can benefit mankind? Johnny Depp is doing a non-period piece where he doesn’t wear a ton of makeup or put on an accent?
The Phoenix Fire Department said Monday it can’t account for hundreds of keys for lock boxes that allow firefighters responding to fires or alarms to enter thousands of businesses and apartment complexes when they are closed.
Sam Walton and his heirs are, by all accounts, some of the richest people in America and for that matter in the world. So saying, “Sam you’re the man” is not an understatement. As we all know, (unless you’ve been living under a rock), he is the founder of Walmart and the worth of the Walton family is in the billions.
The Horizon Honors baseball team packed up its equipment bags after a day of hard work on the diamond in preparation for a game the next day.
As a “volunteen” at Chandler Regional Medical Center each of the past three summers, Lindsey Chew noticed many patients or family members often sitting alone in the hospital. She would strike up a conversation but soon determined that wasn’t enough.
A foolish question? In the world of today’s politics, probably not. There are times when the patriotism of some of our legislators is questionable. Then, one must ask why would a legislator not be a patriot? Possibly because of a lack of understanding of our founding principles as set forth in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
For once Dani Jones didn’t take advantage of an opportunity to impress.
This fall America is going to have an election. This is not going to be an election for president, but the Republican party has shown that it doesn’t know how to win an election. John McCain would have had an easy win if he approached it as Sarah Palin wanted: she wanted to attack Barack Obama where he was most vulnerable, his defective character. Sen. McCain only wanted to attack Obamas’ policies, refusing to do as Palin advised. By his actions, he was allowing Obama to win.
Glenn Beck’s tirade against the health care that millions have signed up for was shameful. Beck’s awful remarks against our twice elected president were uncalled for.
Dear Claudia: I buy homes to remodel them and flip them after. What is the advantage of me hiring a professional interior designer like you?
Save the Lakes is on a mission not to purchase the closed Ahwatukee Lakes Golf Course, but to better understand if it can be brought back to life and to encourage homeowners to keep it protected.
Ouch! After 22 years at the same golf resort I got my walking papers. I guess the new owners felt like new faces will bring in new sources of revenue. OK… since this is a spiritual column I won’t tell you what I really think of that idea.
Now that the Supreme Court has heard oral arguments based on two lawsuits challenging the Affordable Care Act provision requiring employers to provide contraceptive coverage as part of their health care plans, it might be a good time to take a look back before moving forward.
Research has shown that sugar is addictive … in fact, eight times addictive as cocaine. In 1821, each person consumed approximately 10 pounds of sugar annually. Today, that number is an astounding 160-190 pounds of sugar per person annually. On top of that about 55 percent of the sugar produced in the U.S. comes from sugar beets, 95 percent of which have been genetically engineered.
A few weeks ago I stumbled upon a Hispanic bakery that changed my understanding of what a delicious pudding could be.

Summer is right around the corner and Early Language Learning and Arts (ELLA) Studio in Ahwatukee will be offering the community its Summer Language Scholars Camp to assist youth in learning Spanish.
Sometimes it can be hard to convince kids that learning is fun. While parents can’t necessarily control how exciting the school day is, they can make off-hours learning more fun and exciting — especially when it comes to a potentially hands-on subject like science.
As school draws to a close, parents are beginning to think about what activities their children — daughters in this case — can get involved in and enjoy. The answer is simple: Join a local Girl Scout Summer Camp.
For those looking to keep the kids active this summer the Ahwatukee Board of Management has your one-stop shopping.
The absurdity has developed into awareness.
