Now it's coming to television as a live musical. The two-hour event will air from New Orleans on March 20, 2016. Hosted and narrated by Tyler Perry, it is set in modern day and will follow Jesus from the Last Supper through his resurrection. Fox is airing the musical as the network seeks to capitalize on the success of Jesus-themed programming such as The Bible and Killing Jesus
Despite the global popularity of religion—only fourteen percent of the world is atheistic—skeptics have been claiming for years that religion is detrimental to humanity. Richard Dawkins describes religion as "the root of all evil," while the late Christopher Hitchens argued that "religion poisons everything."
But a Washington Post article is making news today by showing that religion is good for families and children. W. Bradford Wilcox is a scholar at Georgetown University and directs the University of Virginia's National Marriage Project. He points to research indicating that "on average Americans who regularly attend services at a church, synagogue, temple or mosque are less likely to cheat on their partners; less like to abuse them; more likely to enjoy happier marriages; and less likely to have been divorced."
The good news continues: Americans who attend religious services often are "markedly more likely to report that they are 'very happy' in their marriages compared to those who rarely or never attend." Research also indicates that religious parents spend more time with their children and are more likely to report praising and hugging their school-aged children. 
Wilcox cites University of Virginia sociologist James Davison Hunter, whose research demonstrates that religious teenagers "are more likely to eschew lying, cheating and stealing and to identify with the Golden Rule." A national study also shows that children from religious families are "rated by both parents and teachers as having better self-control, social skills and approaches to learning than kids with non-religious parents."

The movie 'Passion of the Christ' cost $30 million to make and took in more than $370 million. Many consider it the most authentic religious movie of all time.

Earlier today, I asked friends on my Whatsapp time-line the difference between a Hustler and an Entrepreneur. Of course, there was a plethora of answers as different people gave very distinct meanings in response. What surprised me the most was that no two people gave the same answer. Everyone had a distinct point of view.
However, for the sake of clarity and simplicity I decided to curate most of the responses as well as my personal observations into an article.
First and foremost, a Hustler is someone who "make strenuous efforts to obtain" money or profit from different areas or businesses engagements. An entrepreneur however is one who starts a business (or businesses), manages it to produce tangible value and make profit from it. 
You see, it's easy to assume there's not much difference between the two personalities but there are. 
While Kemi, a LASU Undergraduate perceives the difference in the freedom an Entrepreneur enjoys compared to a Hustler, Success, a Bl…


Think of character as having the benefits of a house’s foundation during a huge storm. If the foundation is strong enough, it will stand firm when the waters come. But when it is weak, the house will come down crumbling even at the slightest wind. That’s why it’s important that we develop a good character. It is often said that hard work will take you to the top but character will keep you there.  
 "Many succeed momentarily by what they know  Some succeed temporarily by what they do Few succeed permanently by who they are”
What then is character?  The Cambridge Advanced Learners Dictionary defines it as “the particular combination of qualities in a person that makes them different form others”. In the simplest terms, character is “who you are”, nothing more nothing less. It is often widely described as who you are when no one else is watching. Your character is what defines you. In other words, your true value can be more than what your degrees, reputation and even your pay check …
