Explore. Love. Live.

I thought I would do a quick round up of the TV shows I watch around the holidays. They aren’t necessarily holiday shows but they are all very feel good and fun. The Great British Baking Show: I started watching this show when my friend Laura visited me back in September. It is strangely addicting […]

Every Thursday, Kevin Cusick makes his predictions against the latest Las Vegas point spread, the way God intended … Dolphins at Vikings (-7): The Vikings dumped offensive coordinator John DeFilippo after nearly getting shut out by the all-lime-clad Seahawks on Monday night in Seattle. Fashion experts say it’s the first time in their history that the Vikings have been beaten by guys wearing girls pajamas. Pick: Dolphins by 3 Seattle Seahawks strong safety Bradley McDougald celebrates after the Seahawks blocked a field goal attempt by the Minnesota Vikings during the second half of an NFL football game, Monday, Dec. 10, 2018, in Seattle. The Seahawks won 21-7. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren) Patriots at Steelers (+1½): Bill Belichick’s Patriots lost out to a Miami Miracle last Sunday when Hail Mary defender Rob Gronkowski stumbled badly when trying to tackle Kenyan Drake on the Dolphins’ final hook and ladders play. In a related note, New England exile Malcolm Butler laughed. Pick: Patriots by 3 New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick gestures, during the first half of an NFL football game against the Miami Dolphins, Sunday, Dec. 9, 2018, in Miami Gardens, Fla. (AP Photo/Lynne Sladky) Seahawks at 49ers (+4½): Seahawks QB Russell Wilson had only 10 completions for 72 yards, plus a horrible interception at the end of the first half Monday night against the Vikings. Seattle fans were stunned, as Wilson usually only plays that poorly near the end of Super Bowls. Pick: Seahawks by 7 Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson takes off on a 40-yard scramble against Vikings defensive tackle Linval Joseph, right, and defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson, left, as the Seattle Seahawks take on the Minnesota Vikings for at CenturyLink Field on Dec. 10, 2018 in Seattle. (Bettina Hansen/Seattle Times/TNS) Packers at Bears (-5½): Green Bay ended its losing streak last Sunday despite interim coach Joe Philbin losing two challenges in the first 90 seconds of the game. This is a strong indication that Mike McCarthy’s successor might be the most interim coach in the history of interims. Pick: Bears by 7 Green Bay Packers head coach Joe Philbin takes the field before an NFL football game against the Atlanta Falcons Sunday, Dec. 9, 2018, in Green Bay, Wis. (AP Photo/Mike Roemer) Redskins at Jaguars (-7): Washington fourth-string quarterback Josh Johnson admitted that he learned his new teammates’ names by playing the “Madden” video game. He quickly switched to “Fortnite” so he could see others getting killed besides Redskins. Pick: Jaguars by 11 (Associated Press photo) Browns at Broncos (-3): It’s hard to believe, but Cleveland can still win the AFC North with wins in its final three games. That’s bad news for most of you, because the Browns making the playoffs again IS one of the signs of the Apocalypse. Pick: Browns by 3 Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield walks off the field after the Browns defeated the Carolina Panthers in an NFL football game, Sunday, Dec. 9, 2018, in Cleveland. (AP Photo/David Richard) Buccaneers at Ravens (-8): Former Super Bowl hero Joe Flacco, nursing a bad hip, is expected to be active this week for Baltimore. The veteran quarterback is expected to get into Sunday’s game if and when Lamar Jackson’s legs fall off. Pick: Ravens by 3 FILE – In this July 24, 2018, file photo, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, left, runs a drill in front of quarterbacks Robert Griffin III, second from left, Josh Woodrum and Lamar Jackson during an NFL football training camp practice in Owings Mills, Md. Flacco has returned to the practice field for the first time since injuring his right hip on Nov. 4. Having finally received medical clearance to play, Flacco threw passes and worked on handoffs with fellow quarterbacks Lamar Jackson and Robert Griffin III during an indoor practice Thursday, Nov. 29, 2018. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky, File) Raiders at Bengals (-3): The Raiders announced they are not going to play in Oakland next season after the city sued the team over its move to Las Vegas. The team will announce its plans for 2019 once it finds a lame-duck city with even lower standards than Oakland. Pick: Bengals by 7 Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr (4) is sacked by Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker Bud Dupree, rear, as defensive end Cameron Heyward, right, approaches during the second half of an NFL football game in Oakland, Calif., Sunday, Dec. 9, 2018. (AP Photo/D. Ross Cameron) Eagles at Rams (-9½): Philly safety Malcolm Butler said replay officials should “stay off the bottle” after a controversial call in last week’s loss at Dallas. That would have been good advice for the 6-7 Eagles to follow themselves when celebrating their Super Bowl win over the past 10 months. Pick: Rams by 12 Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins (27) attempts to stop Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (21) during the first half of an NFL football game, in Arlington, Texas, Sunday, Dec. 9, 2018. (AP Photo/Michael Ainsworth) Titans at Giants (-2½): Tennessee’s Derrick Henry shocked the world last week by running for 237 yards and four touchdowns, including a record 99-yard jaunt. He shattered the NFL’s all-time record for most yards by a non-entity. Pick: Giants by 3 Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (22) runs for a touchdown against Jacksonville Jaguars outside linebacker Telvin Smith (50) during the second half of an NFL football game, Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018, in Nashville, Tenn. (AP Photo/Mark Zaleski) Chargers at Chiefs (-3½): Thursday night’s game will determine the likely winner of the AFC West. Because the game is at the Chiefs’ Arrowhead Stadium, there will be about a dozen fewer Chargers fans than usually show up at their “home” games in Los Angeles. Pick: Chargers by 3 Los Angeles Chargers receiver Keenan Allen pulls down a 14-yard touchdown pass over Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick in the first quarter on Sunday, Dec. 9, 2018 at SubHub Center in Carson, Calif. (Robert Gauthier/Los Angeles Times/TNS) OTHER GAMES Texans at Jets (+6): Pick: Texans by 9 Cardinals at Falcons (-8½): Pick: Falcons by 7 Lions at Bills (-2½): Pick: Bills by 6 Cowboys at Colts (-3): Pick: Cowboys by 3 Saints at Panthers (+6): Pick: Saints by 3 New Orleans Saints Taysom Hill (7) goes down after blocking a punt by Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Bryan Anger during the second half of an NFL football game Sunday, Dec. 9, 2018, in Tampa, Fla. (AP Photo/Mark LoMoglio) RECORD Week 14 Straight up 8-8; vs. spread 7-9 Season Straight up 124-82-2 (.602); vs. spread 87-116-5 (.429) All-time (2003-18) Straight up 2700-1506-8 (.642); vs. spread 2052-2036-125 (.502) Seattle Seahawks’ Bobby Wagner (54) leaps to block a field goal attempt by Minnesota Vikings’ Dan Bailey in the second half of an NFL football game, Monday, Dec. 10, 2018, in Seattle.

A Writing Journey: The Selected Writings of Carlos Flores

“Throughout history, music has mingled with the political. Colorful tones, pulsating rhythms, and meaningful lyrics have been a catalyst or soundtrack for movements of change” (Gavish). Music has a potency to confront political views. Throughout songs and musical acts, political related music served as the driving force for social change. However, this implication of music […]
