Her Light

I am bathed in her brilliance
the moon, the shining one.

Nothing can stop her light -
        not street lights
        not concrete or brick or wood
        not tree branches.
Nothing can stop her light.

She reaches me,
         illuminating me,
my cracks outlined in moonsilver -
         the pain
         the addiction
         the patterns of suffering.

Nothing can stop her light
reaching me.

She illuminates me,
bathing my soul in the renewal of change,
every moment a chance to try again.

 Can they be? Will they be? Who will be stopping the Cavilers this years? The answer to these questions are a little tricky on the spot, especially given its just preseason so far, but just look at the talent, and the depth this team has. The upfront “wow” of this rosters is young star guard Kyrie Irving, who has been in the league 3 years (all with Cavs), three time All-Star Kevin Love (acquired in 3 team trade with Minnesota and Philadelphia), and of course the returning, face of the NBA, nine time All-Star, LeBron James (free agent). But that’s not all of the weapons the Cavilers will have at their disposal for the 2015-2105 season. The Cavs’ bench also compliments their power house of a starting line up with players like Tristen Thompson (started last season for Cavs, Kevin Love projected to start over him, 11.7 pts. per game, 9.2 reb. per game), Shawon Marion (played for Dallas last season, 10.4 pts. per game, 6.5 reb. per game) and Mike Miller (played for Miami last season, 7.1 pts. per game). Making the Cavs own one of the strongest benches in the league. Also in their starting line up above average talent Anderson Varejao (8.4 pts. per game, 9.7 reb. per game) at center and Dion Waiters (15.9 pts. per game) at shooting guard makes the Cleveland Cavilers a well-rounded team with talent at every position on the court.

 The Cavs’ strengths clearly outweigh there weaknesses by a large amount. With a projected starting lineup (can change during season) in Kyrie Irving at the one, Dion Waiters at the two, LeBron James at the three, Kevin Love at the four, and Anderson Varejao at the five, makes the starting lineup of the Cavs one of the best, if not the best in the league. Throwing in a “just as flawless bench” in Tristen Thompson, Shawon Marion, and Mike Miller (just to name a few) makes the opportunities and the tactics of taking down the Cavilers minimal. The Cavs’ strengths are everywhere on the floor, at every position, not a single “below” average player to NBA standards. Probably their weakest link (in the Cavilers starting lineup) in Anderson Varejao at center, averaged close to a double-double last season in 8.4 points per game and 9.7 rebounds per game. What a weak a weak link right?

To question the Cavs stellar starting line-up, who is their go to player in crunch time? They don’t have one. One simply cannot single out a go to player in this starting lineup, they are simply to go. For example, Cleveland’s go to player was Kyrie Irving for the past three years (20.8 points per game, 6.1 ast. per game), with incredible ball handling skills, quick feet, and a great jumper made him easily the face of the Cavilers franchise for those three years. Minnesota’s go to player was the big man, Kevin Love, (26.1 pts. per game, 12.5 reb. per game) with great post moves, a knock down mid-range and three point shot, and an outstanding rebounder, K-Love was also deserving of the role “Mr. go to”. And of course, Miami’s go to player was King James (27.1 pts. per game, 6.9 reb. per game), with above average range and shooting ability, athleticism, and strength with quickness, made the King himself the only one for the job in Miami. That should answer the question, they are simply too good to single out just one of their three All-Stars to be the go to player on the court. With other starting talent on the court, and a great bench, they are simply to too good to single out
Who Will Stop the Cavs?

Yet another, maybe even a bigger gamble, was acquiring forward Anthony Bennett in the trade. Though Bennett too only played one year of college ball at UNLV with constant “All American numbers” putting up 16.1 points per game, 8.1 rebounds per game, and along with a 53.3% shooting percentage, (Sports Reference, Anthony) he is still in the same boat as Wiggins. The worst part of the deal is Bennett was drafted in 2013, playing one year with the Cavilers. Actually, not really playing. His playing time was limited all season due to shoulder and knee injuries along with asthma and conditioning problemYs. When Bennett would play he simply just could not perform on the court, in fact, the Cavilers sent there number 1 overall draft pick down to the D-League to develop and get some playing time. Later in the year, Bennett started to improve and got back up to the Cavilers and stayed at that level for the rest of the year, showing big signs of improvement. But if Bennett can return to the 2014-2015 season with the T-Wolves healthy and ready to work, the 6 foot 7 inch, 240 lbs. forward could be an immense help to the T-Wolves offense this year, also with a big strong body with some physical play, averaging 1.2 blocks per game at UNLV (Sports Reference, Anthony), could add to the defensive side as well. 

Now that the three-time All-Star Kevin Love is no longer Minnesota is there any hope? Absolutely. K-Love leaving obviously takes a franchise player out of the picture, but that is not as nearly as bad as it sounds. With K-Love gone that opens up a huge amount of cap space to pick up free agents like Mo Williams and others along the way of the season, also with young talent waiting to shine on the court in Wiggins and Bennett (acquired in three-team trade), veteran like talent in Thaddeus Young (also acquired in three-team trade) and Mo Williams (free agent), along with the already known players to the T-Wolf community in Rubio, Pekovic, Kevin Martin (19.1 pts per game), Cory Brewer (12.3 pts per game), and recently drafted young athletic talent Zach LaVine (9.4 pts per game, 46 inch vertical) from UCLA, makes the T-Wolves’ diverse roster consisting of young and veteran like talent. The T-Wolves don’t have NBA champions in their minds, but a long playoff run with an exciting regular season at the Target Center is inevitable (Cory Brewer, Kevin Martin, Zach LaVine Sports Reference).

All at once, a quiet voice deep in my soul said, “Are you trusting Me? If you were you wouldn’t be crying.” I sat upright and stared in horror. I wasn’t trusting and I knew it! I felt shame wash over me and I cried again. 
“I’m sorry Lord, please forgive me?” I turned my lamp on and lifted my Bible from the night stand.
Opening it, I read part of James two which says, “You ask but do not receive because you ask for the wrong reasons.” Early the next morning, I went outside and surveyed our garden. Kneeling down, I turned my head up to the sky and prayed again, “Lord, please bless this garden, please bless our efforts.
You know our dilemma, you know what is best, you know we need rain. Please let it rain. Your will be done for I will trust you.” That day, I left it in God’s hands to provide for my family. I prayed that prayer a few times throughout the day but it was always with, “Your will be done.” 
That evening, Mother was preparing supper as I held baby Andy. I had just finished silently praying when the lights flickered off then flashed back on. Mother and I looked around, surprised, when it did it again! Then I heard it. The rain pouring down. I hardly dared to look, but I turned and saw it through the window. A waterfall of rain hitting the ground and making puddles in the driveway. My heart rejoiced, and I ran to my room to thank God personally. He had sent rain!
That rain brought our garden back to life and it grew! We had one of the biggest harvests we have ever experienced.

We stood standing still a minute looking at it with pride. I looked up to the sky and closed my eyes and whispered, “Please let this garden grow. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
I felt something cold and wet hit my face with a splat, as the heavens opened and rain came pouring down on us.
We all scrambled to put our tools away and ran for the house. It was a happy, laughing family that piled into the house a few minutes later and watched the rain fall.
That summer there was a drought. Our beautiful garden began to wither and I could tell that if we 
didn’t get rain soon, we would have nothing to harvest. It wasn’t just us though, it was everyone having the same problem. Every Sunday in church, we would pray for rain and commit it into God’s hands again and still no rain came. I couldn’t understand why God wouldn’t send rain.
 One night, I laid awake and prayed, “God, what are you doing? I asked you to let our garden grow! Why would you leave us flat like this? We’ve all been praying for rain for weeks now, why don’t you send it?
Don’t you care? We trusted you!” I turned over and cried angry tears into my pillow.

     Research from the NCAA Sports Sponsorship and Participation study in 2006-2007 found some interesting statistics. In sports both men and women participate in, women received 32,656 scholarships, compared to only 20,206 for men. NCAA Division I FBS football teams have a maximum of eighty-five scholarships, and NCAA Division I FCS football teams are allowed sixty-five scholarship for their teams. There are 120 Football Bowl Subdivision schools like University of Minnesota, which tend to be bigger. There are also 123 Football Championship Subdivision schools like the University of Northern Iowa or The North Dakota State University, which tend to be smaller. So, when you do the math the number of scholarships is similar (Watson).
     Since “Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972” passed women have had the opportunities they deserve to participate in high school and collegiate athletics they previously did not. Are the opportunities equal, and does Title IX provide them? Women have the same number of scholarships available as men do. Also, women tend to have more sports to participate in while attending a college. Men, though, tend to have more money spent on their side of the athletic department. Under Title IX, that is legal, because some sports like football take more money to operate. The difference in operating budgets cannot discriminate though. The downside is they tend to have less sports to participate in while in college, and also tend to have their sports cut before women’s. Title IX can be hard to enforce, and also leaves some loopholes, but without it women probably would not be playing sports today. Hopefully in the years to come women will have the same amount of money spent on their athletic programs, and men will have an equal number of athletic teams they can be a member of.

     Another discussion point of Title IX, is has it cost men opportunities, not women? The University of Northern Iowa is place you can make a case. With the University of Northern Iowa Athletic Department facing budget difficulties, the school decided they needed to cut a sport. The university decided they could not a women’s sport, because they would no longer being in accordance with Title IX. So, the university decided to drop the university’s baseball team. The university athletic director, Troy Dannen, did not even try to cover the fact the university was trying to stay in line with Title IX. “From a proportionality standpoint, we are really not even close. We were not going to look at a women’s program,” said Dannen. The University of Northern Iowa is not the only place where men’s sports have been cut, but not any women’s sports (Watson). 
     Rutgers University is another location where a men’s sport got dropped, but not a women’s sport. In 2006 Rutgers University dropped its men’s tennis team. By dropping their men’s tennis program, the athletic department saved $175,000. That same year though, the university spent $175,000 on hotel rooms for their football team. The kicker, $175,000 was spent hotel rooms for home football games (Five Myths about Title IX). 

OKC May Actually Be In Some Trouble

Posted | Views: 405
It pains me incredibly to say this because they're no question my favorite team, but the Oklahoma City Thunder need to wake up, NOW! After losing to the lowly Utah Jazz last night, the Thunder have now dropped three in a row and seven of their last nine. With Russell Westbrook expected to miss at least six more games if not more, and Kevin Durant probably going to miss even more than that, it might be time to start worrying just a little bit in OKC.
Please don't get me wrong, I'm not hitting the panic button here and claiming that the Thunder need to tank like Maverick's owner Mark Cuban has recently said. I know the Thunder are dealing with the worst injury situation the NBA has probably ever seen, but the teams OKC are losing to are just pathetic. Starting with the Jazz last night, the Thunder's last week and a half is littered with losses to teams they should've beaten despite being without KD and Westbrook. The Bucks and Pistons are the two that stick out like a sore thumb. If it weren't for Anthony Morrow scoring 28 points against the Celtics you could've added Boston to the list of sub-par teams that have had their way with the Thunder. 
Every match up against a winnable opponent is so precious for the Thunder right now. Without the two mega-stars, those are games that OKC desperately has to win in order to keep their head above water. It's reasonable to lose to team's like the Rockets or Grizzlies, because through the beginning stretch of the season both of those teams have proven to be apart of the league's elite. The Thunder fought valiantly against both of those teams and were close to pulling out victories despite being largely undermanned. That seems to be the ultimate story of the Thunder's injury-riddled season. 
Who's to blame for these inexcusable losses? Normally you would point the finger at the head coach, but I don't know if that's necessarily the case with Scott Brooks. He's so far said the right things and seems to have the guys believing they can win on most nights. The reason they've only been able to pull of that feat three total times this season is primarily on the shoulders of Serge Ibaka. Am I saying that it's all his fault and that he's played terribly? No, not at all. I'm saying that when your two best players go down with an injury, it should be the next guy up to lead the way. In OKC's case the next guy is Ibaka and he hasn't proven he can be the go to guy for any team. It's also been made crystal clear that Ibaka is primarily a role player, and all of his all-star talk in the past is a little far fetched. Through the first twelve games this season Ibaka is averaging 15 points and 7.3 rebounds. Both numbers are down from last season in 2013-14, a year where Ibaka was the third option on the team. The difference now is that he needs to play like the number one guy for the Thunder, but instead his numbers are technically getting worse. 
I was reading an article on Grantland a couple of weeks ago and the writer made a great point about the Heat last season when LeBron James and Dwayne Wade would both sit out of games. The Heat's third option, Chris Bosh used that opportunity to thrive and show that he can be "the guy." Ibaka either doesn't have that mindset, or the skill to do what Bosh did. That in my opinion is the key reason OKC isn't winning the games they should. If it weren't for the stellar play of Reggie Jackson, things could be even worse in Loud City. I'm not giving up on the Thunder, because I believe when Durant and Westbrook return that OKC be able to win enough games to sneak into the playoffs. That's if they're both able to return by mid December at the latest. If it gets to be later than that, then I may start finally hitting the panic button. For now, the Thunder take on the Nuggets tonight on the road. Denver is actually one of the three teams the Thunder have been able to beat this season. I don't think I have to say it, but I will anyway... Tonight is definitely a needed win for OKC. 
OKC may actually be in some trouble

Student Loans

Posted | Views: 652

There are several reasons why someone may need to take out a loan. Buying a home, buying a car, emergencies, medical expenses all cost lots of money, money that most people do not have laying around in their bank account. One of the first experiences many people have with borrowing money, is taking student loans. Once an individual has decided to pursue a college education they have to acknowledge the costs that come along with it. There are many ways students pay for college because each student’s financial situation is different. Some people have a fund saved up and are prepared to pay their schooling straight forward, some have received scholarships, and others maybe need financial aid. There are a few different forms of financial aid, student loans being one of them. There is nothing wrong with student loans as long as they can be managed properly.

If you apply for financial aid, you may be offered loans as part of your school’s financial aid offer. A loan is money you borrow and must pay back with interest (Federal Student Aid). Before accepting any form of loans, the terms must be carefully read through and fully understood. Usually a short online financial counseling session is required before you can even receive the loan. There are a few different types of student loans available. Direct subsidized/unsubsidized loans are offered to undergraduates who may or may not need financial assistance to help cover the cost of their education. Direct PLUS loans are for graduates or professional students and parents to help cover educational expenses. Direct consolidation loans merge all eligible federal student loans into one loan. The amount of money borrowed in student loans varies from around $5,000 to $20,000 a year depending on whether the person is an undergraduate or already graduated. One of the biggest reasons people get student loans opposed to private loans is because the interest rate is very low and the loans do not need to start being paid off until after the person leaves school. There are many perks to getting a student loan, and they are so very helpful for the average struggling college student.

After getting student loans, it is important to establish a plan on paying the loan back in the future. Obviously a person cannot see into the future and decipher whether they get a well-paying job or not, but one needs to keep in mind once they are done with school the loans, no matter how many are taken out, have to be paid back. This can prevent a person from taking out more than they know they can afford to pay back, along with frivolous or unnecessary spending. Seven in 10 seniors (69%) who graduated from public and nonprofit colleges in 2013 had student loan debt, with an average of $28,400 per borrower (Institute for College Access & Success). Keep in touch with the loan lender, keep addresses up to date, know grace periods, and look into options for loan repayment and forgiveness. All of these things are key in being responsible for loans and keep people out of trouble. People that are having to use student loans should learn to live frugally. Remember, just because loans are there for support doesn't mean people can just not work through college. Stay on top of things and just take the payments as they come. Even though there is a lot of money being dealt with, try to keep it together and do not panic. Tons of student have to deal with loans from college, it is just a part of life some people cannot avoid. Student loans are only bad if one lets them get to that point.

When you make a federal student loan payment, it covers any late fees first, then interest, and finally the principal (Institute for College Access & Success). When it is time to pay back loans, do not put it off! If the money is not paid back it can lead to delinquency and default, which means the entire amount of loans is jacked up and must be paid in full. It can be paid off in time with the lowest payments possible. If a person can afford it, a great way to save money in the long run is to pay more than the minimum monthly payment. This will help pay the loan faster and reduce some of the cost spent on interest. Also, if dealing with more than one loan it is best to pay off the most expensive one first or the one with the highest interest. Loan forgiveness is a program that sometimes pays any remaining debt after a number of years depending on the field the student is now working in.

$1.1 trillion: The amount of outstanding student loan debt, which first exceeded $1 trillion in March 2012.
37 million: The number of Americans who have student loan debt.

$26,600: The amount the average college graduate (of the class of 2011) owed in college loans.
40 percent: The share of households headed by someone under 35 that owed college debt in 2010.
More than 80 percent: The percentage of bankruptcy attorneys who reported that the number of their clients with student loan debt increased “significantly” or “somewhat” in a February 2012 survey.
Nearly 1 in 5: The number of households that had student loan debt in 2010 – double the share of households burdened by college debt in 1989!
6.8 percent: The new interest rate on subsidized student loans starting July 1 if Congress does nothing. The new interest rate would be double the current interest rate.
More than 1 in 10: The number of borrowers that defaulted on their student loans in the three years leading up to Sept. 30, 2011.
22.7 percent: The default rate in the three years leading up to Sept. 30, 2011 for borrowers that attended for-profit colleges, compared to a default rate of 11 percent for borrowers that attended public colleges. (Shocking Student Debt Statistics)

Loans can give students an advantage or they can drag students into a stressful ongoing debt. Debt does not need to be a burden carries around for years after graduates finish school. There are both positive and negative outcomes of student loans, the student has to decide what they are going to choose.

Legal vs Physical Child Custody

Posted | Views: 3,033
Legal vs Physical Child Custody
There are two basic elements to child custody: physical and legal custody. The court may decide that either parent can be awarded both, one, or neither of the two. So what’s the difference? 
Physical custody is exactly what it sounds like. A parent who is awarded physical custody is with the child under the same roof. Physical custody can be awarded to one or both parents, and while joint physical custody often involves a 50-50 split of time spent with each parent, it’s not always the case.
Legal custody is more about the decision-making process made in regards to issues involving the child. If you have sole or joint legal custody, you are responsible, or have a say in, normal parenting decisions, like when they should see a doctor, what school is best for them, what religion (if any) will they be brought up under, etc.
Judges often prefer to award joint custody since in most instances it is in the best interest of the child. This ensures that the child has regular contact with both parents and that decisions are made on their behalf as close as possible to how it was during the marriage.
If you are preparing for a divorce and you are okay with your soon-to-be ex-spouse having sole physical custody, it’s important to note that you maybe getting more (or rather, less) than you bargain for. If the other parent is given sole custody, it may leave you vulnerable should they later consider moving to a different city or state.
In cases of joint legal custody, things can get a little messy if one spouse wants to move out of state, and the other objects. Even if you have visitation rights and your ex wants to relocate, they need to give you advance notice, at which time you have 30 days to file an objection.
If parents who have joint custody just can’t come to an agreement on important decisions, and it’s escalated to a judge who may give one parent sole custody. Therefore, it’s always best for parents to do everything they can to resolve these issues on their own… or risk losing their custody rights to their children.
