NEW YORK – The Task Force for Global Health, a Georgia-based international nonprofit focused on improving the health of vulnerable populations around the world, was recognized for their work Friday with the world's largest humanitarian award, the Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize, which comes with a $2 million purse.
The annual award which is administered by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, was established in 1996 to recognize and advance the efforts of recipient organizations and raise awareness about the worldwide need for humanitarian aid and encourage others to expand their support. Recipient organizations can come from anywhere in the world but must be judged to have made extraordinary contributions toward alleviating human suffering.
In accepting the prize at an awards ceremony held at the iconic Waldorf Astoria New York, Task Force President and CEO David Ross, impressed on an audience of international dignitaries and leaders from the humanitarian and human rights fields, the need for what he called "consequential compassion." more >>
One of the major questions I'm constantly asking is: how can I help people see the reality of what pornography is doing to them before it's too late?
Sometimes, I think that even harder than convincing someone who loves pornography to hate it, is convincing someone indifferent to it that they need to be concerned.
I'll let this letter speak for itself but I want to encourage you that if you've come this far thinking that pornography is no big deal, I'd implore you to think again. That's not a threat — it's me, begging. more >>
Man has invented many wild stories over the centuries, but few are more far-fetched than Charles Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection. The contrived plot is completely unnatural.

How do you read a scroll you can't open? Modern technology provides the answer, and shows that Scripture is more durable than the material it's written on.
Is the Bible we read today the same Bible that was written millennia ago by prophets and apostles? That was a question that consumed scholars for generations.
You see, prior to 1947, the earliest manuscript copies of the Old Testament were from the Middle Ages. Critics seized on this as a major hole in the Bible's reliability. How, they asked, could we trust a text that had been copied hundreds of times in the thousands of years since its authors wrote it? Surely it had suffered corruption through all those duplications. more >>
Rumors have it that Simone Missick is just so good on her Misty Knight performance in the upcoming Netflix action and drama series that her character is out to steal the limelight from the main protagonist, Luke Cage. And now, Knight is also set to join another superhero TV series, "The Defenders".

One thing she refused to give her confirmation, however, was whether the fans will get to see her signature bionic arm straight away. For those who do not know, Misty Knight got some needed help from no one else than the genius billionaire, Tony Stark, who also doubles as Avenger's Iron Man. more >>
