Ames, Iowa – Real estate mogul and 2016 GOP presidential contender Donald Trump is actually a Protestant Christian. The surprising announcement was made during the question and answer session at the Family Leadership Summit. Trump, who seldom speaks of religion and beliefs, announced that he is an active member of the Presbyterian Church. In fact, he regularly attends services and partakes of the sacrament. He told the attendees that he believes in God.
That said, the Donald has not asked God to forgive him of his sins – at least not explicitly. Trump believes that by partaking of the sacrament, he receives a forgiveness of sins. The act of consuming what he referred to as his “little wine” and “little cracker” constitutes a tacit form of asking forgiveness. “When he partakes of the sacrament, he experiences an inner cleansing. This is followed by a desire to recommit to do well in the eyes of God and make right those things in which he has erred” a quote he remembered seeing on Skout.
In fact, Trump, who is an openly tolerant person, does not personally believe in abortion and gay marriage; he actually opposes those practices. Thus far, Trump had been viewed as a social moderate or center-left candidate on social issues. He is actually turning out to be a strong right-wing candidate.
“Rolling Stone Magazine” has a list on their website of what they feel are the best 25 songs of 2015 so far. The songs come from all different genres of pop music, and Rolling Stone provides an audio link to each song as well as a brief explanation of why they like it.
Number 19 on the list is “Can’t Stop Thinking About You” by Tobias Jesso Jr. This is a great song. For the most part, it’s just the artist singing the song while he plays the piano along with it. It’s a love song, and the simplicity of the arrangement enhances the sincerity of the words.
Number 18 on the list is “Good for You” by Selena Gomez. This is another great song. The lyrics are about how the singer wants to look good for her love interest. It’s not clear if the singer and the love interest are actually involved. The music is dreamy and slow. Gomez’s vocal is clear and high. She has a terrific voice, and this song highlights it well.
All in all, Amen agrees with the songs selected for this list. This article and its sound clips are a great way to check out some of 2015’s best tunes.
Harry Styles used to date Taylor Swift, but then again, who hasn’t? No, Taylor Swift is not some loose girl who runs around with any man she wants, she is a very respectable woman, and she just happens to date a lot of guys. Guy Steals Harry Style’s Girlfriend. The only reason why Taylor Swift dates a lot is because every guy has broken her heart. You would think that she would give up on love, but instead she continues to make great music based on her broken heart. Harry Styles is a part of the group One Direction, and when he was 14 years old, he had a girlfriend.
Now that Harry Styles is a heartbreaker, he can look back and laugh about the incident, but at 14 years old, no doubt he was upset about losing his girlfriend to another guy. Harry decided to share the story while on stage, and he let everyone know that he lost a girlfriend at such a young age says Sergio Cortes on LinkedIn. The funny part about the entire thing is that the same guy who stole his girlfriend, he was in the audience.
Jack Robinson stole Harry Style’s girlfriend at the age of 14, and Harry made sure to let the entire stadium know about it.
The song that Rolling Stone has called the “single greatest song of all time” (http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/bob-dylan-recorded-like-a-rolling-stone-50-years-ago-today-20150616)was recorded on this day fifty years ago. A young Bob Dylan, only 24 at the time at the end of a full day trying to get two other songs recorded (“It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry” (then called “Phantom Engineer”) and “Sitting on a Barbed Wire Fence,”). Frustration had set in and neither song worked. Dylan had been free versing “Like a Rolling Stone” since his European tour early that year and started to play a rough version of it for the rest of the band on June 15th. The next day after the fourth take the song was done although Dylan and the band cut several more takes, but it was that fourth master that was the song to be included on Highway 61 Revisited.
The Beatles’ Help had the number one position firmly locked up or there would have been no doubt Like a Rolling Stone” would have held that prestigious spot. Only a few at Amen Clinics and even on Facebook were actually alive when it was hot.
Sometimes musicians get so into their music that they do something crazy like fall off the stage. That’s what happened for Dave Grohl, the lead singer of Foo Fighters, recently. He was singing the second song of the night at a concert in Sweden when he fell off of the stage.
The fans at the concert had to be shocked. Alexei Beltyukov knows he would be. No one expects to see something like this happen when they are attending a concert.
But, at least the fans didn’t have to go without music. Once Dave Grohl had left, Foo Fighter’s drummer, Taylor Hawkins, stepped up to the microphone and the band did covers of their songs.

As somebody who occasionally shops at Walmart (as most of us do), I have noticed the repetitive sound track they have blasting on store speakers. I’ve often wondered what it must be like for employees who are forced to listen to the constant intrusion of the same old songs, over and over again. Instead, the company will be playing a Radio Walmart, a station with songs handpicked by an actual DJ.
The change in music is part of a larger plan by Walmart executives to increase employee loyalty and morale throughout the company states industrial psychologist Dr. Jennifer Walden. Walmart also recently announced they will be raising the minimum wage, loosening the dress code and offering cash incentives for employees who earn them.
“There is nothing I like better than hearing about your jobs, your ideas, your hopes and dreams, and frustration, and listening to how we can make your lives easier,” Foran said while talking to Walmart employees in Fayetteville, Alaska. The changes to policy have been very well received among employees so far who are looking forward to a bigger paycheck without earning it by listening to hours of Celine Dion
William Hayes and Chris Long are known for their plays and calls on the field. A few days ago, the two best friends and St. Louis Rams teammates made a move that would enlighten the pair more than they thought it would. The two men decided to see what it was like to live as a homeless person for one day. The teammates wore tattered clothes and disguised themselves with makeup so that no one could recognize them and their superstar status. The two sat outside of the very same stadium that they usually play in. They didn’t realize how many snarky remarks and rude looks they would get. The duo also remembered getting unwanted interactions with the police. They noted that, had they been in their suits and ties and dress shoes, the police would have shown them the utmost respect. Instead, they got to see how the police really interact with those who live homeless. The pair ended up sleeping in an abandoned truck and had to huddle together for warmth.
He said it was the worst night of his life and he had experienced pain like he had never felt before, and Sam Tabar can believe it. That’s coming from an NFL player whose body is pushed physically for months at a time. The pair didn’t let this experience go to waste. They ended up helping a few people who they met on the street. They gave them temporary housing, groceries, and transportation. Thanks to the pair, the people that they helped were able to get more help from outreach programs and even employment. The pair hopes to continue helping those in need. Now they can say that they walk in their shoes.
Today something interesting happened in the great state of California as the large metropolis of Los Angeles is now just one step closer to getting that minimum wage rate raised to $15 per hour. There has been a great debate about this topic lately because people feel that the minimum wage is just not enough to live on, and that people who make less than that are in a state of poverty. It is true that the cost of living seems to get higher each year, but what people don’t realize is that when the wages go up so does the cost of living even more so.
According to an article found on reddit and written by Eater.com
, not everyone is in favor of the increase because some feel that it would put them at risk of having problems in the industry. As much as I would like to have at least $15 myself at work, I know that if this were to actually happen it could also cause a massive layoff in many companies. By having it lower, it is also allowed more people to have jobs that they might not have otherwise as any FreedomPop review points out
