CrossFit Suspends User Group of 1.65 Million Members on Facebook and Instagram

It is very exciting to see a major company like CrossFit take a firm articulate stance on how Facebook is moving to control the public discourse on topics they arbitrarily disagree with.

Closing a community group that held the feedback and testimonials of 1.65 million members took a lot of strength of character.

Well done CrossFit I applaud your position.

Socialism – Everyone Else Did It The Wrong Way

The cartoon may be funny but socialism is no joke. This evil ideology led to the murder of over 100 million people in the 20th century and countless millions more suffering from poverty, imprisonment, torture, war and many other forms of evil far beyond the comprehension of most of us in the west today.

Don’t be deceived by the talking heads in the media, academia, the entertainment industry and political circles. There are very powerful people who are working very diligently for the destruction of western civilization and the Judeo-Christian principles our society was built upon.

There are other equally troubling ideologies being promoted by those who hate God, the family and the sanctity of life as well. If you are not familiar with the topic please do your own research.

If I read Bible prophecy correctly the coming slaughter will lead to the death of Billions (with a B) of people not Millions. The rise of the next evil empire will make tyrants like Hitler, Stalin, Paul Potts, Mao Zedong and many other throughout history look like choir boys.

What is love?

According to 1 Corinthians 13 – Love is patient and is kind; love doesn’t envy. Love doesn’t brag, is not proud, doesn’t behave itself inappropriately, doesn’t seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil; doesn’t rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;  bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.

I can’t think of a better definition.

Read more about love, the love of God through Jesus Christ in the Holy Bible. A great place to start is in what is commonly referred to as the love chapter, 1 Corinthians 13.

Skip this chore: Cleaning your air conditioner condenser probably won’t make it work better

I asked my neighbor who hoses off his air conditioner condenser every spring why he does it. “Because my dad always told me I had to,” he said.

Conventional wisdom like what my neighbor’s dad imparted may always seem right. But through my HVAC scholarship – the study of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems – I’ve learned that this particular presumption is probably wrong.

Dirty equipment

The equipment I’m talking about washing is the outdoor part of central air-conditioning systems that move heat from homes into the outdoors.

Technically known as condenser coils, they are usually about the size of a large garbage can but they can be as small as a bucket or as big as a refrigerator. Some are protected by louvered grilles but most are exposed to the elements. Their metal fins help transfer heat to the air. They contain tubes that carry the hot refrigerant, which gives off heat as it condenses.

Stuff like windblown seeds, dust and grass clippings tends to collect on the coil surface. Most homeowners and HVAC companies envision that this untidy-looking stuff acts like an insulating blanket, slowing down the passage of heat from inside to outside. Any debris that accumulates would also interfere with airflow over the coil, further restricting the system’s ability to expel heat.

The nitty-gritty

Mehdi Mehrabi, an architectural engineering graduate student, and I set out to learn the extent to which dirty residential air conditioners are less efficient than clean ones. What we found astonished us – and many of the other experts in this field.

Monopoly was designed 100 years ago to teach the dangers of capitalism

Have you played Monopoly lately? Or maybe snakes and ladders? These board games are examples of 100-year-old games that many still play today.

But the way they are played today may not be teaching the lessons their designers hoped to share.

At the start of the 20th century, children were part of the regular workforce. They possessed few toys. When U.S. manufacturers created games, they built them to market to parents: to teach as well as to entertain.
