Top 15 Movie Musicals of this Century

2019’s Cats – Universal Pictures’ overhyped adaptation of the 1981 stage musical – was a total washout, to say the least.

Tems Makes Such A Strong Statement In Her Maiden Music Video: “Try Me”

The piano melodies beckon. Then, ascends, a humming intro. After that, adlibs, a surely gracious voice. It’s quite an infrequent working of a mezzo-soprano. You know, there and then, you are in for some great artistry. And you are.

“Try me” is it; the spellbinding single from Nigeria’s up and coming Tems.

Trevor Noah Ponders The Question Of Race Relations In America

For little over eighteen minutes, Daily Show’s Trevor Noah weighed in on the deep-seated anger and the whys and wherefores that sparked off the Black Lives Matter protests across the cities of the United States – and even abroad.

Noah, in his monologue, likened this whole conundrum to the game of Dominoes, explaining that while the tipping point of the protracted protests was George Floyd, the 46-year-old black man who was killed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, by a policeman who knelt on his neck for over 8 minutes, the momentum of the Black Lives Matter Movement feeds off long-lasting frustration of African American people who have suffered long from multiple injustices, including the brutality of the Police.

Break The Boredom: These Are 10 Of The Most Interesting Instagram Accounts To Follow Through Quarantine Season

It is heartening that scientists, all across the globe, are spending sleepless nights in hospitals and laboratories trying to rescue us all from the snare of the Corona Virus. They are our heroes.

Do Not Be Worried About Anything

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6–7

When faced with a challenge or crisis, our tendency is to get all anxious about it. But God does not want us to react this way. He does not want us to be anxious about anything. Instead, whatever the problem is, He wants us to go to Him in prayer and supplication, telling Him what we need and thanking Him for the answer. When we do that, His peace, which surpasses all understanding, will guard our hearts and minds from all worries, anxieties and fears.

The Most Surprising Theories about Jesus’ Resurrection

Jesus Resurrected From Death

Probably no aspect of the Biblical account of Jesus has faced as much opposition as the story of His resurrection from the dead, and rightly so; for Paul says, “If Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith” – [1 Corinthians 15: 14].

Therefore, those against Christian teaching get to disqualify the faith if they disprove Christ’s rise from the dead. But do any of these alternate theories hold up under scrutiny? Continue reading The Most Surprising Theories about Jesus’ Resurrection
