  1. I've been busy working on the test server, preparing to update kingjamesvideoministries.org to the latest version of Invision Community. Quite a bit has changed with this release (Release Notes) and the theming system as well. So I went ahead and rewrote all the CSS we were using and have been working out a few kinks before I do the upgrade. Hopefully, sometime within the next week, I should have everything done.
  2. I deleted the offensive posts and turned off guest posting as well. I didn't realize it was on.
  3. "As Friday's hospitalization numbers across the Sun Belt appear to confirm CDC head Dr. Robert Redfield's assertion that the American COVID-19 outbreak has peaked and is starting to fade, the State of Virginia is setting a new precedent by seriously discussing forcing Virginians to be vaccinated with whatever rushed-to-marked candidate the FDA approves first. During an interview that aired on Friday, the state's health commissioner said he planned to invoke state law to make vaccinations mandatory - once a western product is available, presumably. Here's more from ABC News 8: State Health Commissioner Dr. Norman Oliver told 8News on Friday that he plans to mandate coronavirus vaccinations for Virginians once one is made available to the public. Virginia state law gives the Commissioner of Health the authority to mandate immediate immunizations during a public health crisis if a vaccine is available. Health officials say an immunization could be released as early as 2021. Dr. Oliver says that, as long as he is still the Health Commissioner, he intends to mandate the coronavirus vaccine. "It is killing people now, we don’t have a treatment for it and if we develop a vaccine that can prevent it from spreading in the community we will save hundreds and hundreds of lives," Oliver said. Pro-medical-choice activists in the state argue that the issue is a matter of medical choice, and that the hasty "expedited" approval process being implemented by the FDA is grounds for concern. State health authorities insist, meanwhile, that they would never mandate a vaccine that hadn't already proven to be safe. Virginia Freedom Keepers Director of Communications Kathleen Medaries, a mother of three from Chesterfield, says this is a matter of medical choice.This is not a Republican or Democrat issue. It’s not a pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine issue," Medaries said. "For me, it’s an issue of being able to assess each vaccine for myself and my family one at a time." [...] "He shouldn’t be the one person to make a decision for all of Virginians,”"Medaries responded. The state's top medical official is opposed to a bill that has been put forth in the state assembly that would create more exemptions to the mandatory vaccination power, allowing exemptions on religious and other grounds." Oliver believes that COVID-19 is a public health emergency that should take precedent over everything else, and that vaccine-assisted herd immunity is the state’s best and only real defense. The decision comes after Massachusetts said it would make the flu vaccine mandatory this year as part of a campaign to protect the state's medical system. We suspect Virginia and Massachusetts won't be the only states to discuss mandatory COVID and/or flu vaccination in the coming weeks, as the school year begins.

  4. I've temporarily disabled VerseClick due to an issue with the CKE editor not displaying scripture when editing the first post in a topic.
  5. Don't worry about it, I'm still adjusting things as needed and was considering truncating longer posts on the homepage with a read more link. Feel free to post the other ones if you'd like.
  6. Nationwide distribution of any coronavirus vaccine will be a “joint venture” between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which typically oversees vaccine allocation, and the Department of Defense, a senior administration official said today. The Department of Defense “is handling all the logistics of getting the vaccines to the right place, at the right time, in the right condition,” the official said in a call with reporters, adding that CDC will remain in charge of tracking any side effects that emerge post-vaccination and “some of the communications through the state relationships [and] the state public health organizations.” The plan breaks with the longstanding precedent that CDC distributes vaccines during major outbreaks — such as bad flu seasons — through a centralized ordering system for state and local health officials. “We believe we’ve actually combined the best of both,” the official said. A second senior administration official stressed the agencies would be working as “one team” to distribute hundreds of millions of doses if any of the vaccines in development are approved in the coming months.

  7. I think a lot of it boils down to not wanting to be "wrong." Normally, we're all reasonably sure of what we know or believe due to life experiences, knowledge, or feelings. When someone comes along and questions those thoughts, feelings, experiences, or beliefs, we have a defensive reaction. No one wants to be wrong, and I've found some people will go to great lengths to avoid even considering they were/are wrong. Some of us believed in evolution, think about when you first were told or heard it was all a scam. Everything you knew, thought, and believed about that subject was called into question, and the veracity of your thoughts and judgment became questionable as well. To be wrong entails the person might be foolish/dumb/uninformed and/or have made wrong/incorrect choices. Would you want your mistakes to be displayed publicly, your feelings questioned, and to be told why your conclusions are incorrect? It doesn't sound very pleasant to me, but I understand it's very much a part of being humble sometimes. Knowing this reaction, we can help guide conversations and avoid some of these problems. If you try a bit of a your right approach, you might have better luck. Your right about organized religion, they don't follow the bible and make a mockery out of Christianity. Your probably right about being a good person, Why do you think people have morals? Why does being good matter? Those Catholics are pretty messed up, I think the way they pervert the bible and lead people astray is just awful, what do you think? The answers you receive will most likely be in agreement, and her mindset will be one of the same. You won't have to convince her of things she already believes to be true, and since you are affirming her beliefs while at the same time stating yours, reciprocity starts working in the mind, and it can help them consider what you said on the same sort of level. It also helps move people away from a defensive mindset to one of understanding and agreement. Look at that, I wrote that whole thing definitively like I was right... It's honestly just what I think, I don't think I'm wrong though :).
  8. That could be the case, I know the media has been blasting it around that "protesting" doesn't/didn't spread corona virus. Then you hear about this stuff https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2020/07/15/huge-scandal-300-florida-covid-test-sites-reported-false-100-positivity-rate/ right when they were talking about doing another lockdown. It makes you wonder how real the new case numbers really are. That chart reminds me of one I just seen from Sweden, it looks like they got it right. Notice in the article how the media is outright lying about them.

  9. After many attempts to fix the problems with sending emails to Microsoft domains (Outlook, Hotmail, Live, etc), every communication with them went some like this; Me: Them: Me: Them: I did all this about three times over the last few weeks, and the results were always the same, nothing is wrong. So after speaking with our hosting provider again a few days ago, they submitted a request to Microsoft to have the entire IP address range removed. I'm still waiting to hear back the result on this, but hopefully they will have more success then I did. In the mean time, I've been manually approving registrations with Microsoft email addresses but we might just have to not accept any Microsoft email addresses for members on this website (Microsoft is evil, this might not be a bad thing).

  10. I don't like sports myself, but I don't think any job should ever be able to dictate how/who can attend services. This part was particularly concerning. Isn't this pretty much what they did in Nazi Germany? I believe they encouraged the people to report other citizens who "didn't" follow the new rules.

  11. I don't think Bryan has made it over here yet, the website is still a bit of a work in progress. I guess the new dark mode I was reading about is only for the administrator page, so we'll have to find or create one for the main website. They have a fair amount of them here. Dark Themes - Invision Community INVISIONCOMMUNITY.COM If you guys find one you like I can add it to the website. We can also easily tweak the colors of the current or a new theme. If one of you guys were interested, I can give you access, create a copy of the current theme and you can customize it to your liking. Pretty simple to do, just point and click but lots of colors to choose from.
  12. I remember reading somewhere the human brain can easily store about 3-7 pieces of information in a set, with less being easier, and more being harder. We also tend to remember the first and last pieces of information in a set. So if you give someone 7 pieces of information, the ones in the middle will become "blurry" and won't be remembered as easily as the first or last ones. If you give the same person 3 pieces of information, the brain will naturally hold on to the first and last pieces, making the middle easier to remember. If I asked you to remember the numbers: 123456789 vs. If I asked you to remember the numbers: 123 456 789 This can help with memory retention, as well. You can make sets of things that are easier for yourself to remember. Back to the reactions, I think between 3-6 is about the right number. So maybe have: Like, Thumbs up: +1 Thanks: +5 Praying, Hands: 0 Inappropriate/Mark for review?, Exclamation Point in a Triangle, Warning Sign, or a Flag? -1 or Thanks: +1 Trophy/Research: +5 Praying: 0 Warning Sign: -1 or Thanks: +1 Trophy/Research: +5 Praying: 0 Happy: +1 Sad: +1 Confused: 0 Warning Sign: -1 I'm not really sure myself, but it the warning/negative should be clearly marked.

  13. We would love the help if your interested. I was really hoping someone with a passion for it would offer, as I still have quite a bit to learn in that area myself. I can handle all the technical details and can do a far bit of customization(Pages, Databases), I just don't what all we need or how to go about doing it. I've heard great things about Nourishing Traditions as well, wasn't it out of print for time?
  14. Sorry for the late reply, everything has been a bit crazy. Words don't it justice, but I'm trying to get it all organized. I've down to 83 open browser tabs in 8 different windows on 6 desktops, I've sorted hundreds of bookmarks, I've been working on condensing all my to-do lists, reading laws pertaining to face masks(ADA, HIPPA, Good stuff coming) and to this website (DMCA, CCPA), and planning features. Anything you would like to do to help would be appreciated. I see you replied to the development blog, that's my sort of TODO list in progress. If there's something on the list you like to do, want to see, or feel lead by the Lord to work on something else, I'm open to any help. I liked your ideas on the blogs post(Haven't had time to reply yet). The mission statement I was thinking about myself, we can show different things to guests and members on any page. Maybe the have the ministry statement pop up for guests and be hidden for members or we could work it in as a hero image/featured section also as well. I'm not sure if Bryan has one written or not, that might need to be done as well. I'd be happy to go into details if you have any questions about anything. If that's a bit too vague, I could write a more structured TODO list for the website, like plan categories for Downloads, write descriptions, etc.
  15. The vaccine’s development, supported by the United Kingdom government and AstraZeneca, is “absolutely on track,” David Carpenter, chairman of the Berkshire Research Ethics Committee, which approved the Oxford trial, told Sky News. “Nobody can put final dates … things might go wrong, but the reality is that by working with a big pharma company, that vaccine could be fairly widely available around September and that is the sort of target they are working on.

  16. More than 300 COVID testing labs in Florida reported 100 percent positive rates. That simply isn’t possible. Every person they tested was reported as positive. Upon investigation, the actual positive cases were 10 times lower. Now, this opens the question, how many other states have been reporting fake numbers? Alex Berenson, the former New York Times reporter who has now become a Twitter expert on the virus, is saying that Texas’ numbers are also off the rails, that they are not accurate.

  17. Work to be done on the website before the official launch and video announcement. I'm finishing up some back-end items, working on the website rules and privacy policy, registering a DMCA safe harbor agent (To protect the website from copyright claims), tweaking the videos section, and have some work to do on the menus among many other things. I want to finish some of the items below before the official launch as well, but I am pretty constrained on time working on the back-end. If anyone would like to help out with planning these features, writing categories, and descriptions, or in any other way, it'd be greatly appreciated. This list is what I've put together so far, I'm probably missing some things, and some of the ideas need further refining. So if you see something that I forgot or something you think should be here, please let me know. I'm open to any suggestions, recommendations, or ideas. The Homepage I have the homepage set to display the most recent topics with new activity. Is there a more functional/better use for the homepage? Research Dashboard I've been thinking of building a "research dashboard" page of sorts. I know we all do quite a bit of research into all kinds of subjects. It would be nice to have a central place to create research projects, store information, links, pictures, pdfs, view and take notes, and even make tools to help the community with researching. I've still in the planning phase of this project, but have started to consider the following; What information do you use when researching a subject? How can this information be saved and then presented in a way that would be useful(topics, posts, database entries, links, notes, file/picture uploads)? What tools would help in general research/study? I'd to know what everyone thinks about this idea, would it be useful and should I build it? If you like the idea, what would you like to see in your research dashboard? Health, Food, Nutrition. I'd love to build a healthy living/eating section if someone wanted to take the lead on designing what that section should look like and how it should be structured. I could put it all together. We'd need to figure out what pages or databases we want, Food, Recipes, Keto Tracker, Home Remedies, Medicinal Plants and Mushrooms, etc. We'd need custom fields for the databases. For example, for the Medicinal Plants database, do we need fields for the common name, botanical name, description, medicinal uses, warnings, recommended dose, etc. We can have record feeds from databases and forums as well, so if we had a Healthy Living page, we could have feeds on that page from the recipe database, the medicinal plants, a private forum, a links database, and so on. Categories and descriptions would need to be written, and we could add anything else that might be useful to the Body of Christ as well. Homesteading, Homeschooling. Same as above. Downloads Categories and subcategories need to be created for things the body of Christ might need, KJV Bibles, Tracts, Public domain documents (Random References, the Wescott and Hort letters, for example), general PDF's, and so on. I think once the categories are in place, the downloads section will become quite useful. Videos It'd be nice to sort Bryan's videos by subject matter or create playlists of some sort. We could also tag videos(really anything), and then create feeds based on tags throughout the website. Similar content could be shown on topics, the research dashboard, alongside study pages, etc. This will be a big time-consuming project in itself, but I think it would help the ministry and have untold rewards for the body of Christ. If someone or multiple people were interested in taking up this project for the body of Christ, I could make a group with permissions to edit all tags. User Submitted Videos We just need some categories and descriptions written here. Bible Study Tools Biblical Glossary Should we have categories(what categories?) or list everything on one page? Bible versions database What categories or custom field would this have? Do we list authors, translators, release dates, publishers, missing verses, corrupted doctrine? Biblical Places database We could use a database to hold the Latitude and Longitude of significant places in the Bible and then feed it into a mapping application to be able to see at a glance where certain places in scripture took place. Bible Bookmarks? Tract creator A tract creator would be nice; I'm not sure how to make this yet, but it's on the wishlist. How to Witness - Database Say to the Mormon's or about the bible version issues. I'm sure we could compile some good information over time, and It'd be nice to have that knowledge base online to refer people to if you're short on time. If any has any ideas on how we could set this up, I'm all ears. KJV Bible Finding good electronic sources for the KJV bible, in any format, PDF, Text, SQL, Word, Bryan has talked before about the altered versions floating around. It would be nice to have a place where anyone could download a good copy. Pew, that took forever to write. Thoughts, Feelings, Ideas, Suggestions?
  18. NEW YORK (AP) — The U.S. Roman Catholic Church used a special and unprecedented exemption from federal rules to amass at least $1.4 billion in taxpayer-backed coronavirus aid, with many millions going to dioceses that have paid huge settlements or sought bankruptcy protection because of clergy sexual abuse cover-ups. The church’s haul may have reached -- or even exceeded -- $3.5 billion, making a global religious institution with more than a billion followers among the biggest winners in the U.S. government’s pandemic relief efforts, an Associated Press analysis of federal data released this week found.

On the subject of bushcraft, I'm in the learning phase as well, haven't had much chance to get out and test what I've learned yet. The book "Bushcraft 101" by Dave Canterbury is a good resource, he goes over all the basic equipment you might need and touches on a lot of good points, foraging, trapping, hunting, water collection, shelter. He also has some other books focusing on certain aspects of bushcraft, like trapping, first aid, etc. His website www.selfrelianceoutfitters.com/ has most of things he recommends in his books as well. It's pretty much a curated list of the best tools available for bushcraft, and has been a great time saver. Another book "Bushcraft 101 - Basic Guide to Survive in the Wilderness like an Expert" focuses less on the basics and more on practice, and is an excellent read or listen.
  20. The scary part is how quickly nearly every employer made wearing a mask mandatory. I deliver bread to major retailers (Walmart, Kroger, Dollar General), and all of them are requiring vendors to wear face masks. I fear we've a only a hop, skip, and a jump away from a vaccine recommendation, that will be mandated not by the government but by employers.
  21. I've not researched the Keto side myself, but have been intermittent fasting since November and have lost about 60 pounds. I really need to dive into the healthier eating/super foods side of things, but the legwork on researching some of these subjects is pretty massive. Maybe we should make a Healthy Living/Eating section of some sort? I started researching hunting and trapping earlier this year myself. While I didn't get very far into the subject (I keep finding rabbit holes to go down 🙂), I got my state license and bought some traps, wire, and snares. Have you ever looked in to bushcraft?
  22. After trying to send an email to an @live.com account, and getting a blocklist error in return, I've spent the last couple of days working on Domain PTR records, Reverse DNS, and email deliverability. I had already set up SPF, DKIM, DMARC, and the domains PTR records. However, the error I got from the live account indicated a problem with the PTR records. So I started double-checking settings, and came across an occasional PTR record error being reported within WHM, and CPANEL. After eight hours troubleshooting PTR records, BIND9, and all things related to DNS and domain name records, I emailed the web host, and they confirmed all my settings were correct with no errors being reported. I also emailed the Live support people, and they said our server IP address wasn't on the blocklist like the error message said it was! I'm going to give it a few days, and work on it again.
