Crime Investigation ( CI )


At inception God called out Adam and Eve.

And, soon after Cain; to which Cain replied “Am I my brother’s keeper“.

Then came Abraham, Sarah and Hagar.

And, God had to come in and straighten things out again.

Rebekah was comforted that two nations lie in her womb.

And, she took that into consideration has she pushed Jacob ahead of Esau.

Jacob got taken by Laban, and ended up with two quarreling sisters.


So crime does pay or at least it is part of Human Affairs.

It is not lost on the entertainment industry.

Words Said


There has been so much said in the last few days.

Sometimes it is not quite topical.

It is really just people hijacking issues and wanting something to say.

Whether it is school shooting or whatever else is trending, it really does not matter.

People are angry, frustrated and just wanting to let off.


Friendships & Ties

Not having friends, associates, and ties to communities sometimes allows and excuses us to paint with bigger brushes than we otherwise would have.

When we are among friends we sometimes take the liberties we otherwise wouldn’t.

Physical spaces affords us that intimacy, but now sometimes now it is Web Communities.


Almost Naivete

We are probably at that point where speaking against someone that people look up to, will cause a bit of rancor.

In as much possible, just don’t to do it.

The stakes are high and will likely only get higher.


Words do matter

Words do matter.

  1. Miranda Rights
    •  You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you.
  2. Good Book
    • Gossips
      • Whoever would foster love covers over an offense, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends. ( Proverbs 17: 9 )
      • Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. ( Ephesians 4:29 )
      • But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one. ( Matthew 5: 37 )
      • But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
        For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. ( Matthew 12:36-37 )
    • Uncareness
      • Whoever does not gather with me scatters. ( Matthew 12:33 )
    • Anger
      • …Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are members of one another.
        Be angry, yet do not sin.” Do not let the sun set upon your anger,
        and do not give the devil a foothold.…
      • Tremble, and do not sin; Meditate in your heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah. ( Psalm 4:4 )
      • for man’s anger does not bring about the righteousness that God desires. ( James 1:2 )

    •  Doubt

Public Spaces

With difficulties and sometimes headstrongness we come into our public spaces.

And, think that if we say things a certain way, we might make our points.

We sometimes riddle the other side.



The truth of the matter is that we have gaps.

Some are obvious.

Parenting Gaps

We are experiencing a parenting gap.

And, it translates to economic gap, and within a generation or two into education deficits.

Uncorrected we feel and get comfortable with being who we are, where we live, what we do, and the words we use.

Peoples read into words and and take the viewpoint that “If you don’t care about me, reading from how you speak to or about me, why should I care about you“.

It is vitally important to our conduct how we dissect how much care about us.

If read wrong, our conduct is a bit forced or withdrawn.


Role Modeling

I think it is important to step in and help these young men as they are role models, whether they are ill prepared or not.

In too many cases they are all we have.



I hope that life affords you the opportunities to take some words back.  But, more so to care where you did not as much.

To re-arrange things and if unable to, to pray and hope God sends those more able.


Work to do….

Just the other day, one young man said

I still have a lot of work to do….

Don’t we all.

There is just too much to do that we ought not to waste “put downs“.

Undeserved put-downs are sometimes just what one needs.

Things said sometimes acts as great reminder and reasons to work harder.



Dedicating to Colicchie

Come Back Home

Barricaded, but I see you shoving hard
And, if you fuck her, it will not cover the scars

You never run your mouth, and that’s a great quality
you never talking __ that’s something that you never see
Any issue, you just speak about yourself
do you understand all the people that you have helped

Casey Newton :- … The danger of Facebook’s focus on Groups


In a broadly applicable short article Casey Newton points out the danger of group attachment…



Author :- Casey Newton
Subject :- The Mueller indictment exposes the danger of Facebook’s focus on Groups
Web Site :- The Verge

A year ago this past Friday, Mark Zuckerberg published a lengthy post titled “Building a Global Community.” It offered a comprehensive statement from the Facebook CEO on how he planned to move the company away from its longtime mission of making the world “more open and connected” to instead create “the social infrastructure … to build a global community.” He identified a number of challenges to realizing his mission, and ranking high among them was the political polarization of his user base.

“Social media is a short-form medium where resonant messages get amplified many times,” Zuckerberg wrote. “This rewards simplicity and discourages nuance. At its best, this focuses messages and exposes people to different ideas. At its worst, it oversimplifies important topics and pushes us towards extremes.”

By that standard, Robert Mueller’s indictment of a Russian troll farm last week showed social media at its worst. The special counsel filed conspiracy and fraud charges against 13 Russian nationals and three organizations as part of a widespread, multimillion-dollar effort to influence the US election. Adopting US identities and personas, they created a variety of groups and pages across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube for the express purpose of pushing Americans to extremes.

Facebook has estimated that 126 million users saw Russian disinformation on the platform during the 2016 campaign. The effects of that disinformation went beyond Likes, comments, and shares. Coordinating with unwitting Americans through social media platforms, Russians staged rallies and paid Americans to participate in them. In one case, they hired Americans to build a cage on a flatbed truck and dress up in a Hillary Clinton costume to promote the idea that she should be put in jail.

News of the indictments come at a time when Facebook is investing more in its products for groups. Last year, Facebook said 100 million people are in what the company callsvery meaningful” groups, or groups that are a primary part of the user’s social networking experience and extend to offline interactions. A parenting group might be very meaningful to a young family, for example. In his post last year, Zuckerberg said Facebook hoped to increase the number of people in very meaningful groups to 1 billion.

But what if those very meaningful groups are run by foreign actors working to make the country more polarized? It’s impossible to say how “meaningful” the groups Russia created were to its members, but the troll farms worked to create pages around subjects that generate the maximum level of emotion. Often, they were tied to identity. For immigration matters, there was a page called “Secured Borders.” For Black Lives Matter, there was “Blacktivist.” For religion, there were “United Muslims of America” and “Army of Jesus.” By 2016, those pages collectively had hundreds of thousands of American followers.

Russians spent thousands of dollars a month promoting those groups on Facebook and other sites, according to the indictment. They meticulously tracked the growth of their audience, creating and distributing reports on their growing influence. They worked to make their posts seem more authentically American, and to create posts more likely to spread virally through the mechanisms of the social networks.

Facebook greeted the Mueller indictment as a kind of vindication. (As did President Donald Trump, who eagerly promoted some tweets by the company’s vice president of ad products that criticized media coverage of Russian ad spending on Facebook.) “We proactively disclosed the IRA activity to the Special Counsel, Congress, and the public, and have worked with them to give the public a fuller understanding of what occurred,” said Joel Kaplan, Facebook’s vice president of global policy, in a statement. “We’re grateful the US government is now taking this aggressive action against those who abused our service and exploited the openness of our democratic process.

Kaplan added, “We know we have more to do to prevent against future attacks.” He added that the number of people working on security at Facebook would double this year, to 20,000. “We’re committed to staying ahead of this kind of deceptive and malevolent activity going forward,” he wrote.

In the meantime, the dark side of “developing the social infrastructure for community” is now all too visible. The tools that are so useful for organizing a parenting group are just as effective at coercing large groups of Americans into yelling at each other. Facebook dreams of serving one global community, when in fact it serves — and enables —countless agitated tribes. The more Facebook pushes us into groups, the more it risks encouraging the kind of polarization that Russia so eagerly exploited.

Tim Keller continues to impress me with his ability to balance theology with the burdens of Little Joe and beaten down Johanna.

    • Faith for a Kairos Moment
      • Model that those that been forgiven much, love much [ Segment 20 ]
        • Therefore, I tell you, . her many sins have been forgiven — as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little( Luke 7:47 )
      • Without Faith it is impossible to please God
        • By faith Enoch was taken up so that he did not see death. He could not be found, because God had taken him away. For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God.
          And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who approaches Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him. ( Hebrews 11:5-6 )
      • I got to know God in the Land of The Living
        • The Lord is My Salvation
          …Do not deliver me over to the desire of my adversaries, For false witnesses have risen against me, And such as breathe out violence.
          I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living.
          Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD.… ( Psalm 27:12-4 )




Here are some of his recent tweets.

Jan 2018

  1. The security of Jesus’ love enables you to need less, and to love more.
  2. The God of the Bible is a God of grace, who is faithful to us even when we are unfaithful to him.
  3. Fastest way to become a Pharisee is to hate Pharisees.
  4. How much doctrinal unity you need to partner with someone depends on what you are partnering with them for.
  5. The only flaws that can enslave you are the ones that you are blind to. Ps. 19
  6. Before we can answer “Who am I?” we must first ask, “Whom or what do I love?” and “Who loves me?”
  7. Our problem is not so much the unanswered questions but the unquestioned answers out there.
  8. Everyone in the world is an evangelist. Even telling someone they can’t proselytise is a form of proselytising.
  9. What is Religion? A set of beliefs that explain what life is all about, who we are and how we should spend our time.
  10. Both secularism and devout faith are growing. What’s going away is the mushy middle of religiosity.
  11. Having a sense of being loved deeply by Christ allows us to forgive when someone wrongs us because we can afford to be generous.
  12. Don’t let success go to your head. Don’t let failure go to your heart.
  13. What does your life say to others about what you believe?

  22. The most fulfilling life you can have? Stop living to fulfill your own desires and start living to fulfill the needs of your neighbor.
  23. If you care about social justice, you’ll be concerned with those on the margins of society not those with the most social media followers.
  24. If you have money, power, and status today, it is largely due to the century and place in which you were born, to your talents and capacities and health, none of which you earned. In short, all your resources are in the end the gift of God.
  25. Jesus did not abandon us despite all his own suffering. Do you think he would abandon you now in the midst of yours?
  26. Lack of cultural awareness leads to distorted Christian living.
  27. Condemning others while also excusing ourselves is what allows us to hang onto both our self-righteousness AND our sin.
  28. The number one lie Satan tells us is that we can prove ourselves.
  29. “To be loved but not known is superficial. To be known and not loved is our great fear — but to be known and loved, that transforms you.” – @timkellernyc
  30. Our beliefs are formed not only through reason and argument but also through social conditioning. The only way, therefore, to be as thoughtful, balanced, and unprejudiced as possible is to be highly aware of your cultural biases. Are you aware where your beliefs come from?
  31. The more you see your own flaws and sins, the more precious, electrifying, and amazing God’s grace appears to you.
  32. Jesus came not to accrue power. He came to give power up.
