NEW YORK – Pastors in New York City are optimistic that a policy banning churches from using public schools for worship services will be reversed despite a recent court ruling upholding that policy.
Pastor William Devlin, co-chair of Right to Worship New York City, told The Christian Post Wednesday that the mayor is on their side.
"Pastors across New York City are very encouraged about recent developments on the right to worship. We know that Mayor de Blasio is with us 100 percent and any day we will hear that he has reversed the draconian and discriminatory Department of Education policy ... we have his word," Devlin said. more >>

Forget the cigarettes honey and hand me the camera!

After watching this video you will want to fly to Africa and find a Meerkat colony to try this yourself! These guys are super precious. And they have NO fear! Though they are wild animals, they have become totally acclimated to the presence of human beings and will go as far as to stand on their heads.
It also looks like that baby Meerkat around 1:50 is trying to learn how to operate a camera. Really adorable video! These little guys are certainly delightful creatures, like the photographer says!
My mother passed away just before Easter of this year. During her last five months, she made six trips to the emergency room. Her journey from failing health to death gave our family an opportunity to observe, first hand, the positives and negatives of our transitioning healthcare system. Essie Jackson was a frugal senior citizen who suffered from a rare form of blood cancer and expired from complications of that health challenge.
Thankfully, she had my family and myself to help her navigate the last few months of life. Most of the poor or elderly would not have been able to travel 45 to 60 minutes (each way) to take advantage of the region's best healthcare options.
Instead of the large, efficient hospitals where everything is state-of-the-art; the poorest and weakest citizens must use the clinics and hospitals that serve the patients that no one else wants. These Medicaid patients (whose reimbursements are much smaller than those of private insurance) and patients without insurance are on the lowest rung of the healthcare food chain. The institutions that serve them are struggling. Many such organizations initially welcomed ACA, believing that it would help their uninsured patients get covered. But ironically, these are the very institutions whose existence is now threatened. more >>
