‘Love One Another’: National Day of Prayer Kicks Off With Call for Americans to Follow ‘the Golden Rule’



WASHINGTON – Today is the National Day of Prayer and everywhere throughout the nation individuals are assembling to implore, even on Capitol Hill.

Every year paving the way to the day, a gathering sets up before the Capitol, whatever may happen, for a 90-hour Bible perusing long distance race. This year around 400 individuals from around the nation have taken an interest – including a couple of officials.

Keith Davidson, organizer of Seedline International, is driving the current year’s occasion. He reveals to CBN News volunteers are even there perusing the early morning. “We had a woman the previous evening that was on reserve from Alabama and flew in just to peruse, and she forgot back at 6am toward the beginning of today,” said Davidson.

This yearly convention goes back to 1990. This year they have more than 100 Bible interpretations and renditions to browse and they plan to include considerably increasingly one year from now.

“We have a Farsi Bible and folks can come by and read that in their language, we also have a Russian Bible and we have a Chinese Bible that a group yesterday, a Chinese church actually here in Washington, DC, brought out,” continued Davidson.

Johnson is spearheading efforts towards unity in Congress by co-chairing the Honor and Civility Caucus with Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL).

“It’s a bipartisan effort to just get members to talk to each other, and basically follow the Golden Rule to treat one another with dignity and respect as fellow Americans and part of the American family,” says Johnson.

Lawmakers and faith leaders like Dr. Ronnie Floyd and Pastor Andrew Brunson will join together inside the nation’s Capitol Thursday night to pray.

“It’s one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had, to be able to come right in Statuary Hall, right in the centerpiece, the epicenter of American government, and to be able to pray and sing and worship and have this kind of service we will have,” says Congressman Jody Hice (R-GA), a former pastor who will be speaking at Thursday’s event.

Ric Ocasek, frontman of new wave pioneers the Cars, dies at 75




The performer and maker Ric Ocasek, whose singing, songwriting, style and attitude as pioneer of Boston musical crew the Cars characterized the American new wave development of the late 1970s and mid ’80s, has passed on. He was 75.

Ocasek’s demise was affirmed by the New York Police Department, which said that officials reacting to a 911 approach Sunday evening found him lethargic at around 4 p.m. There were no indications of unfairness, as per the Associated Press.

Beginning with the Cars’ self-titled introduction collection in 1978, the cool, slender frontman and his bandmates hurried the graphs — and the early music video channel MTV — with a string of smoothly present day, ultra-appealing force pop hits including “My Best Friend’s Girl,” “How about we Go,” “Bye Love” and “Shake It Up.”

“The Cars had it all: the looks, the hooks, beat-romance lyrics, killer choruses, guitar solos that pissed off your parents, dazzling music videos,” Brandon Flowers of the Killers said last year when the Cars were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The respect topped an inventive life known not just for work with the Cars and as an independent craftsman, however as a brilliant eared dilettante who created original chronicles for New York synth-punk pioneers Suicide, Washington, D.C. afro-punk band Bad Brains and Los Angeles pop-punk band Weezer.

Ocasek’s downplayed, cumbersome charm was with the end goal that he wedded supermodel Paulina Porizkova at the pinnacle of both of their notoriety, and in doing offered a route forward for unassuming artists less inspired by the peacock shenanigans of a Mick Jagger or Freddie Mercury. There was no compelling reason to thrash about like a maniac when a curved eyebrow and insignificant hip-shake could work.

The methodology was fruitful. “On the off chance that anything, I’m unmistakable,” he said with normal modest representation of the truth when gotten some information about his 1980s omnipresence on MTV.

That nearness was hard-earned. When the craftsman conceived Richard Theodore Otcasek framed the Cars with Benjamin Orr, Greg Hawkes, David Robinson and Elliot Easton, he’d been working the upper east circuit for a considerable length of time. Ocasek and the late Cars bassist Orr opened for proto-punk groups the Stooges and MC5 in the mid ’70s, and recorded a collection as a component of a society shake outfit called Milkwood later.

The Cars shaped in 1976, and in the wake of winning Boston radio airplay for an early recording of “Exactly What I Needed,” before long marked with the regarded name Elektra, where they joined a program that included Queen, Carly Simon, Harry Chapin and many other ’70s rockers.

In the midst of the long-hairs as yet humming over the flower child thing, Ocasek’s half-expressed, demurely conflicted conveyance stuck out, and recommended his declared motivation, Lou Reed, as directed through a rockabilly crooner. Ocasek groveled over a previous fire’s “atomic boots” and “softened cowhide blue eyes” on “My Best Friend’s Girl.” For “Bye Love,” Ocasek featured a “wavy 12 PM” rich with “shrouded insinuations” and “substitution, mass disarray, mists inside your head.”

Thus inspired, the artist’s creativity ignited like a spark plug.

“So many people are so goddamned bored and won’t even… get out of their chairs to go look for something to do,” he told Creem magazine in 1983, of his drive for musical success. “You can’t rely on the rest of the world to take your hand, you know. You have to sort of get out and look for something to get involved in or just do it yourself.”

30-Acre Brush Fire Threatened Homes In Eagle Rock




A brush fire along the 134 Freeway in Eagle Rock threatened some homes Sunday and caused the closure of two freeways.

But late Saturday, officials happily reported no structures were lost and a mandatory evacuation in one area was lifted by 10 p.m.

The Los Angeles Fire Department and Glendale Fire battled the blaze in tandem.

As of about 5:15 p.m., authorities said they were getting the upper hand on the blaze that was reported about an hour before.

Desmond Shaw, reporting in Sky2, said a lot of white smoke would indicate firefighters had managed to turn back most of the flames.

The 134 and 2 Freeways were shut in both directions. A woman who said she’d only moved to Los Angeles from Chicago a year ago was stranded on the 134 that for hours resembled a parking lot. She deadpanned, “I think we’re in for a long evening.”

Additional resources were called for to aid in structure protection.

Smoke was visible to Dodger Stadium, witnesses said.

Three LAFD helicopters dropped water on the flame, in any event six drops were seen. Air-Crane and LA County each had a helicopter dropping extra water on the flares.

No wounds have been accounted for.

Liverpool versus Arsenal: Salah strikes twice as new Gunner flops




Mohamed Salah changed over a punishment before scoring a radiant independent objective as Liverpool beat Arsenal 3-1 to open up a three-point hole at the highest point of the Premier League on Saturday.

Liverpool hadn’t discovered its best structure in opening successes over Norwich and Southampton, and confronted the main other top-flight group with a 100 percent record.

It demonstrated to be a befuddle.

After Joel Matip’s first league goal in 11 months broke the deadlock just before halftime, Salah converted a penalty after being fouled by David Luiz and then made it 3-0 by turning Luiz near halfway, sprinting down the right wing and cutting in to deliver a finish into the bottom corner.

Substitute Lucas Torreira scored a consolation for Arsenal five minutes from the end.

Liverpool will end the third round of games as the only team with nine points from a possible nine.

The game started at a frenetic pace, with the hosts setting a high tempo that penned Arsenal back in the final third. Within 80 seconds, Andy Robertson whipped a ball across the six-yard area which Roberto Firmino narrowly missed. Arsenal manager Unai Emery’s tactics were to defend deep with eight men behind the ball in an attempt to draw the opponent in before trying to release the explosive pace of offseason signing Nicolas Pepe, given a full debut at the expense of Alexandre Lacazette.

Pepe had three shots in the primary half, while Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian – straight from the mistake that cost his group an objective at Southampton a week ago – left his region to clear the ball just to discover Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who hurled the ball back simply past the far post.

Pepe’s most obvious opportunity came when Jordan Henderson’s error on the midway line permitted the Ivory Coast universal to keep running past Robertson be that as it may, in a one-on-one circumstance with Adrian, he took shots directly at the goalkeeper.

Before long, perpetual weight on Arsenal’s barrier started to tell and after Salah held off Granit Xhaka to keenly turn and fire wide, the achievement came. From a corner, Trent Alexander-Arnold at long last discovered his range and Matip profited by the space made by Virgil van Dijk’s tangle with Matteo Guendouzi to power home a 41st-minute header.

Sadio Mane should have done better with his header in injury time but if the interval was a period for Arsenal’s players to clear their heads, no one told Luiz who, in a moment of madness four minutes after the break, tugged on Salah’s shirt.

The Egypt international confidently dispatched the penalty and added a second by brilliantly putting the seal on a three-pass move which eliminated most of the opposition.

Started by Adrian and including Alexander-Arnold, the ball came to Fabinho who flicked forward an inviting ball allowing Salah to skip past Luiz with embarrassing ease 40 yards out. He ran into the penalty area before placing a shot inside the far post with his left foot.

It was then an exercise in damage limitation for the visitors, with Emery’s first change being to send on combative midfielder Torreira for playmaker Ivan Ceballos.

Lacazette, scorer of 19 goals last season and one in one match this season, was not introduced until the 81st minute – and even then it was Torreira who eventually found the net, drilling home a loose ball 15 yards out
