YAH'S WATCHMAN The Arab Spring Wilts in the Media 87% – Decrease in coverage of Mideast unrest from February to May 2011 The so-called Arab Spring rages on. But if recent coverage is any indication, the U.S. media are not nearly as interested as they were a few months ago. Last week (May 23-29) alone, a government crackdown in Yemen reportedly killed more than 100 demonstrators; the European Union imposed new sanctions on Syria as reports surfaced that as many as 1,000 people have been killed in government crackdowns; Egypt decided to charge ex-president Hosni Mubarak in the deaths of protestors; and NATO announced a 90-day military extension in Libya as violence continued to escalate. Yet coverage of the Mideast unrest accounted for only 5% of the newshole last week, continuing a pattern of diminished attention to a story that dominated the mainstream news agenda in the first quarter of 2011 From that point on, coverage was only a fraction of what it had previously been.

Principles of Journalism The first three years of the Project’s work involved listening and talking with journalists and others around the country about what defines the work. What emerged out of those conversations are the following nine core principles of journalism: 1. Journalism’s first obligation is to the truth Democracy depends on citizens having reliable, accurate facts put in a meaningful context. 2. While news organizations answer to many constituencies, including advertisers and shareholders, the journalists in those organizations must maintain allegiance to citizens and the larger public interest above any other if they are to provide the news without fear or favor. 3. Journalists rely on a professional discipline for verifying information. 4. Independence is an underlying requirement of journalism, a cornerstone of its reliability. 5. Journalism has an unusual capacity to serve as watchdog over those whose power and position most affect citizens. 6. 7. Journalism is storytelling with a purpose. 8.
Tisha B’Av - Out of the Darkness - Holiday The saddest day on the Jewish calendar is the Ninth of Av, “Tisha B’Av.” It is the date when both our Holy Temples were destroyed, and exile, persecution and spiritual blackness began. Tisha B’Av starts at sundown of the eighth of Av and lasts till the following nightfall—click here for exact times for your location. On Tisha B’Av we abstain from: Eating and drinking. Nothing should distract from the mourningDon’t greet a friend with “hi” or “good morning.” Leading up to Tisha B’Av: Eat the final meal shortly before sunset. Tisha B’Av Night: Finish eating by sunset. Day: No tallit or tefillin for the morning prayers. After nightfall, before breaking the fast, we ritually wash our hands. From the ashes of the destroyed Temple will rise an incomparably magnificent edifice. Notes: If the ninth of Av falls on Shabbat, the fast is postponed one day, and begins on Saturday night.
Cullman First Church of the Nazarene | Cullman First Church Of The Nazarene Hebraic Roots Teaching Institute > Home Why "Yahushua"? Some have written me asking for an explanation of why I use the form "Yahushua" in reference to the Messiah while others use "Yahshua", "Yeshua" or "Yehoshua". The purpose of this study is to go through each of these pronunciations and determine which is the most correct. I'm not one that believes that you need to pronounce the Messiah's name exactly like I do in order to be saved. However, the issue of the Messiah's name is a very important one. If you don't believe me, read the below scriptures: Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Yahushua Messiah for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. And this is just in the book of Acts! Origin of the name "Jesus" According to the American Heritage Dictionary, the etymological origin of "Jesus" is: Jesus ..Middle English, from Late Latin Isus, from Greek Isous, from Hebrew yû‘, from yhôûa‘, Joshua... So how is the name pronounced? Yehoshua Yeshua
