About St. Petersburg College:
In 1927, St. Petersburg College (then known as St. Petersburg Junior College) became Florida's first private, non-profit, two-year school of higher learning located in downtown St. Petersburg. Full accreditation followed in 1931 and in 1948 SPC became a public college.
In June 2001, SPJC officially became St. Petersburg College when Florida's governor signed legislation making it the first community college in Florida to offer four-year degrees. On Dec. 11, 2001, the college received the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools' accreditation to offer courses leading to bachelor's degrees.
In 2002, St. Petersburg College began offering courses leading to bachelor's degrees in Education, Nursing and Technology Management. The college's commitment to its two-year curriculum, which has earned it wide recognition and annually wins it high national rankings, remains as strong as ever.
Today, SPC has eight learning sites throughout Pinellas County and recently became the first college in Florida to offer a four-year degree in Dental Hygiene. This program's offerings augment its two-year program, which has been in operation since 1963. SPC added four-year degrees in Veterinary Technology, Public Safety Administration and Orthotics and Prosthetics in 2005.

(English is not my natine language) GSVP and race retro-protectionism is meant to indoctrinate certain groups of people to believe they are weak, insufficient and, in general, to create herds of paranoically offendable easy to manipulate VICTIMS. As in poor little vulnerable never grow up angry babies. What if, instead, they teach them some character, courage, reinforce their personalities with solid knowledge and prepare them for the brutal struggle life out of the campus temporal glass bubbles really is about? The good news is that the flock of mediocre envious “professors” promoting these "ideas" are just justifying their UNintellectual, absurdly biased, unscientific, historically failed and obsolete pseudo-Marxist “courses”, while projecting their intrinsic weakness onto others to protect their own parasitic faculty positions. The more tantrum they teach the stronger (they believe) they are. Of course, those positions are, by default, unsustainable in the short term, but what is really worrying is that what they are subjecting, in reality, is a generation of vulnerable and prematurely self-defeated otherwise valuable students. But the question that deeply intrigues me is, how come we degenerate into this state of massive academic idiocy? Conservative brilliant intellectuals save the world!

There is more than 1way to steal votes! When you control media you WIN! So when a remark is made w/vengance/hate &/comes from a fig we respect like or admire we believe it! No accuracy ck or verification if her comment no MATTER how naive was not done & went out to MORE admired people in talk shows who repeated with such a vengance that I will NEVER look at them again w/envy or admire w naiveness when “Michelle Obama’ made a LIE inaccurate it was a planned by her and all media on tv lie a liecoment it spread like a cancer on this earth = didnit effect the vite = yes‼️effected vote 🗽is an understaement! If Russia did this = what woukd we do? Whatever it is she shoukd have that done as this is treason? No? I have not seen this kind of behavior since JFK & we all know what Ameriicans did to him! We ‘the people’ were taken out for trying to correct a wrong w/truth while she was allowed to this day Nov 16 2020 to have a mislead8ng comment stream everywhere! Is corruption in the highest! A sad day for america and world I was sensored for trying to just make a correction BUT not ALLOWED!- if yr a Celebrity no fact ck? #Lies #media & some celebrities treating #Biden like he is Mr Rogers? Nov4/20 These social media avenues I thought, was a format for us mice to be heard? By monitoring & fact checking ONLY one side + refusing to show material with a darkside re one candidate? Ukraine/Biden/Hunter & Border Cages/kids BEING of Biden admin + kept quiet!? I feel little Joey never took responsibility for anything he did as he lies ir hides or candycoats his story? Because of his do as I say nit as I donis hypicritical!! NO hearing on a pending assault charge is to me a looser and a COWARD + shows being a smooth talker isn’t everything!? Therby he is violating #TaraReade’ rights and shows she don’t matter to Joe or he would provide papers required to do so & put her first not his ego! Tara is only ONE of many women(not called creepyJoe for faces he makes at kids)! While in office B/O has 4 bloody wars & bombed syria so much he ran out of bombs!++ We should be concerned! I am showing here, that hiding of one side by an unjust unfair media - is so important as using media in this way is not its purpose. It is misleading even “control” Media even Social Media should be held accountable & be ethical as overkill w/vicious comments is not entertainment but “Bulling”! We need our positions of Power to be respected+ there are boundaries even in social media/comedy etc.,!

This guy is a fraud! He is not a Christian but portrays himself as one to fool you. There is no such thing as a judeo-christian. You are either jewish or christian religion. The one true God, Jesus, of the Christian KJV bible teaches that how to find true peace and happiness and it is not by pursuing the emotion of "be happy" or "act happy all the time" as our goal. The goal in life is to glorify God Jesus in all we do! We are supposed to mourn with those who mourn! and how insane to be happy when someone just lost a family member , or other tragedy happened to them. They shouldn't be "happy"! and if someones spouse is doing porn and committing adultery and no one believes them (this is common situation due to Christians not confronting adulterers unrepentant sin or other sins in a biblical way) then how insane to tell that person to "be happy" instead of follow Mahtew 18 scriptures to bring our loved ones towards repentance of sin. Onlybelieving on and loving God and following Him only will bring true success in life and true happiness. We are tocome alongside the victim of abusive marriage or any injustice, and follow scriptures to help stop unrepentant sin and restore the family member, friend, or even stranger to Christ. Dont ignore problems and "be happy"! That is why most marriages and then the children watching are usually lead away from Christ and away from love and unity with Christ and their own families. Then they end up in front of Dennis Prager and listening to false doctrine. Christians avoiding loving confrontation of unrepentant sinners is main reason for common problems such as fathers turning to alcohol and porn and mothers/wives being talked into thinking there is something wrong with them for not being happy in a marriage with a distant unloving husbands (doing porn) and so typically she is told to ignore her husbands sin and take prescription drugs (antidepressants/sleep aids - that cause more harm and depression in the end) and "be happy"! He even admits he is )ewish (that means he is agains Christian bible teachings) and is telling Christians to have a Bamitzva (Bible teaches to not be involved in false religious rituals). He is a false teacher posing as a Christ loving caring person when he is really hates Christ and the kjv bible. Dont be deceived people- like his first wife was deceived! He probably divorced her because she wasn't happy in a marriage where he lusts after other women (His Prager university videos teach that is is ok to look in lust at women, but Christian bible teaches that this is serious. Adultery leading to divorce starts with looking in lust! If there is any problem problem or perceived problem or any sin in any marriage or family were one member is unhappy (or has any problem worry or concern whatsoever, the rest of the family is to love that person and follow the scriptures for restoring that person (or restore the person causing the problem bringing the unhappiness/worry to the other). That is love. And the christian bible teaches that the husband is the leader and so he is to be like Christ and be a servant leader and love His wife like Christ loved the church. Women are supposed to be servant leaders also and help her husband be a Christlike leader in the family. women are told to do nothing when their husbands are falling into sin or poor leadership and that is not a loving wife or mother. both Husbands and wives and children are all one family unit and all should be accountable to a real Chris loving church that can help with Mathew 18 steps if family starts to divide from Christ. The family helps the church be loving and Christlike and the Church lovingly helps the family stay united with Christ and each other. It is insane to be happy when there are problem going on that require people to be Christlike which is only way to resolve the problem and love one another. There are times it is Christlike and loving to "be happy" and times it would be a sin to "be happy" instead of expressing an appropriate Christlike emotion for the particular situation going on. Find a real Chrisitian Church, and start learning scriptures by watching on line sermons from Law of liberty baptist church pastor Adam Fannin you tube, and also go to online ministry and www.thenarrowwaychristianministry.com/podcasts. First watch videos that teach what the Bible says you must do to be saved. also go to Dr Andrew Kaufman Covid bit chute or David Crowe the infectious myth, covid bit chute to find out what is really going on re:covid! There is no virus, this is the NWO take over and the talmudic ew antichrist will be brought in soon with help of Dennis Prager indoctrination of our young people.

I love Mr. Prager, the only thing I disagree w/ him is abt smoking. He thinks smoking is OK & if you have good genes nothing will happen to you. His parents both were smokers & did it even in the car & he thinks it was OK. Smokers are not only hurt themselves but they hurt others around them b/c of a bad habit they pay for. Nobody owns the air, nobody should be allowed to smoke anywhere when it can go inside other ppl's lungs. See what happened to cigar smoking Rush Limbaugh? Is it worth it?

*Please explain,* *-In what context it is moral to turn children into indentured servitude volunteered workers?* *-In what context it is moral to treat indentured servitude volunteered workers as property?* *-In what context it is moral to pass indentured servitude volunteered workers to children as permanent inheritance?* *-In what context it is moral to treat indentured servitude volunteered workers so bad that relatives shouldn’t be treated that way?* *-If it was indentured servitude volunteered work, then why it is restricted to only foreigners?* Leviticus 25:44-46 However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way. * Please explain, in what context it is moral to beat indentured servitude volunteered workers with many blows?* Luke 12:47 The servant who knows the master's will and does not get ready or does not do what the master wants will be beaten with many blows. * Please explain, in what context it is moral to beat indentured servitude volunteered workers as long as they don't die?* Exodus 21:20 “Anyone who beats their male or female slave with a rod must be punished if the slave dies as a direct result, 21 but they are not to be punished if the slave recovers after a day or two, since the slave is their property. * Please explain, in what context it is moral to kill non-virgin brides?* Deuteronomy 22:20-21 If, however, the charge is true and no proof of the young woman’s virginity can be found, she shall be brought to the door of her father’s house and there the men of her town shall stone her to death. She has done an outrageous thing in Israel by being promiscuous while still in her father’s house. You must purge the evil from among you. * Please explain, in what context it is moral to kill unruly children?* Deuteronomy 21:18-21 If any man has a stubborn and rebellious son who will not obey his father or his mother, and when they chastise him, he will not even listen to them, then his father and mother shall seize him, and bring him out to the elders of his city at the gateway of his home town. And they shall say to the elders of his city, "This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey us, he is a glutton and a drunkard." Then all the men of his city shall stone him to death; so you shall remove the evil from your midst, and all Israel shall hear of it and fear. * Please explain, in what context it is moral to slaughter infants?* 1 Samuel 15:3 Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy all that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and *infants,* cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.

When he spoke about the illegal use of the recording and how unethical the use of his lecture was and that at least he was grateful they gave HIS name as the speaker I really cracked UP! How many lectures of the beloved Dennis Prager have I listened to, some directly about a specific Bible book and never have I heard HIM use God's meaningful name (that GOD gave himself) though he correctly views the authorship as being "of God" the book of Leviticus consistently magnifies Jehovah’s name and sovereignty appearing, on average ten times in each chapter and yet Dennis sells a book ABOUT Leviticus ! Not sure if there is a NOD to the NAME in it by his lovely but unethical self!

This was absolutely amazing! I'm generally uni-polar, aka, happy 95% of the time. It DOES attract people, it DOES improve my life and those lives around me. Such good advice. Is my life perfect? Absolutely not! If I stop and think about my trials, the things that hold me back, those around me that try to drag me down, there are many ... So what? I don't let those things define me. My grandmother gave me advice when I was young about trying to 'please' everyone, and it's so true. She'd quote President Lincoln (poet John Lydgate supposedly said this and later Lincoln adapted it), “You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can't please all of the people all of the time." Life changing. YOU DO YOU. And if you listen to Dennis Prager's advice of just being happy, being real all the time, everything will fall into place. Love it! LIVE IT.

Seems a bit contradictory to me. You have a moral obligation to be happy -- ask anyone what it's like to have had an unhappy parent. But then...at 12 or 13 you're on your own, responsible for yourself, can't blame your parents anymore. (And this assumes being happy -- or acting as if you are -- automatically results in good happy children.) People are damaged permanently by "bad" parenting and some cannot pick themselves up off the floor when they are 40, never mind 13.

I respect Mrs Prager. He has wisdom. I don’t agree with everything he says though. For example, I don’t agree with the sex part. If a woman doesn’t want sex and is depressed and miserable because of traumas and emotional wounds (I am talking about real traumas), and if she just really doesn’t want it as frequently as her husband she shouldn’t feel obligated to have sex with him. It’s a terrible advice to tell a woman otherwise. No woman want to feel used as a sex object solely to serve her husband when she’s in emotional pain or if it truly isn’t what she wants. “The effect on the husband is so positive” So what? Healthy boundary is important even in marriage. If the husband is so selfish and wouldn’t take time to work on what stops her wife from wanting to have sex with him and just want her to give despite her unwillingness then it surely is better for both of them to rethink their relationship. After all, what kind of intimacy is that? You can force the act of sex but you can’t force intimacy. Without intimacy sex’s is just an animalistic instinct. And who is all about not following instincts? It is Dennis Prager himself.

Just because he didn’t insert every possible caveat and trusts people to use their own judgment about when such advice would be beneficial doesn’t mean the whole point is wrong.

@Heddysue 0 ruling what roost? Saying that males mature later doesn’t mean that males don’t catch up. Look at high school kids, look at college kids, and then look at adults who are already done with college. By that time, the males have caught up. Depending on which study you look at, it appears that the brain is finished maturing by age 25. I suppose if people finished school younger and entered the workforce earlier, you would see women outperforming men in those younger age groups in the workforce. However, those differences would diminish as the cohorts get older, and by age 25 men and women would be roughly on par. From that point on, you’re going to see differences due to life choices more than things like maturity

Just a biological fact. Females start puberty younger, finish puberty younger, finish growing younger, their brains fully mature younger, etc. That’s just one of many reasons why girls outperform boys in school. They’re more mature at a younger age.

"Unhappy people make the world worse." While there's truth to that, consider the chronically depressed or suicidal listener. Those words could make such a person not want to exist. Happiness isn't something forced upon someone from above. It's cultivated by bending down to their level and lifting them up through understanding. "Moody" people aren't the only ones dragging relationships down. You can be happy, but at the same time judgmental, condescending, unlistening, and unapologetic, so much so as to make your moody partner moodier. The grain of truth I will take from this lecture is that you must take responsibility for your life to become happy.

that is the dumbest crap in the history of comments...how does that make you 'feel'? Angry?...you can't be...remember...you have to pretend to be happy...or are those rules just for other people?

I believe your 'fact' is true, and illustrates the point of the message being given perfectly. Take any subject-noun and add the most prominent/significant action-verb attributed to it. In this case, your 'subject' and it's 'action' confirms the point of this lecture's Title. So, 'A Feeling-based society' + 'Killing' us = BAD! (MIC DROP) NBL.

Glad I'm not the only one who thinks it's more fun to be an adult. I don't know how many people I hear saying that childhood was easy and they miss it... no, being immature leads to more painful experiences than anything!

My brother-in-law needs to hear this talk, but I'm sure he thinks Prager is an anti-semite, since that's what be believes about Ben Shapiro.😂

This is an interesting topic. It reminds me of a couple I met years ago when I was younger who knew my Dad. The man was very placid and intelligent, in fact my Dad arranged for me to work for him one summer since he wanted me to follow in his footsteps into the same trade as he had and this gentleman was the person who actually trained him. The woman was extremely obnoxious and treated the man like garbage even in public. The man tried very hard to change her even going to the extent of taking a year away from his business to spend full time with her in the hope of getting her to change. Not only did it not work but in later years when the poor man had a stroke and ended up disabled she actually deserted him. This is a good example of why non moody people should not get mixed up with the moody.

You will suffer this sins of your forefathers, why, because the sin in their hearts has not been circumcised, thus the scripture, you are white washed tombs full of dead men's bones, meaning, what you are on the outside is one thing, what you are on the inside is another, when you give birth, you give birth to yourself that which dwells within you, spirit gives birth to Spirit, this is why if I act a certain way I will not give birth to this, I will simply give birth to my spiritual self, that which dwells within me, if the good dwells within me then I will give birth to this, if the evil dwells within me then I will give birth to this, if I act happy the world will be a happier place, this is the reason why the world is not a happier place, because everyone is acting something they are not. The reason why you suffer what someone else is, is because where your treasure is your heart will be also, it is attached to this world if my heart is attached to what is perishable, when it perishes so does my heart, if I laugh it does not mean I am happy, many people laugh in ignorance, ignorance is bliss because when the truth comes it will bring forth suffering, those who laugh will Mourn. This man has a dark heart because he has told us this, it's the only heart he knows, so in this, he must oppose it to remain in the good, but the good is a false good, because he is in opposition to his evil dark heart, if then I am dark, then where does the light come from, the Christ, because he is the light of the world, and those who possess the Christ, possess the light of Christ in their hearts, which this man possesses not, how then can I listen to a man who is only the darkness, this man does not know what he is saying. This man does not love he does not know what the meaning of this word, if I love those who love me of what credit is it, even Sinners do this, if he saw Adolf Hitler drowning he will throw to him a block of concrete, this is a Loveless heart, how then can I believe in a man who does not love, as it is written ;love your enemies, when this man holds Adolf Hitler in his arms like a mother would her own child and weep for him, then he will enter Paradise.

@michael michael Though I recognize your claims, I am a Christian woman without children as a result of a drunk driver who nearly killed me. My injuries prevent me from bearing my own. He was an illegal immigrant with no insurance. I was a Med Student almost done with my graduate work. I now work with & love all children that I am unable to have myself. NEVER ASSUME YOU KNOW. ONLY GOD KNOWS.

John Maynard Keynes called for "necessary socialization of the economy." So what has following 80 years of his program gotten us? Do good people leave their children THEIR virtually insurmountable debt? Why is it that from 1800-1930, 2/3rds+ of years the USA ran budget surpluses? Since then, 22 trillion + in natl debt! Progressive era economic theory caused this and we can stop it if we understand why it doesn't work! Click on the link for my book and once in Amazon, click the book again for a free preview.

Its not about acting happy as a facade over the emotional circumstances that made a difference but like Prager said that emotion is really a bad guide and have zero chance of making life better. Not acting on your emotions and feelings? Is good place to start.... you dont even need to display your happy but just try to avoid disposing it to the rest of social circle or the the general public. Its a necessity to behave that way coz everyone had the privilege to experience childhood and doesnt matter what kind of childhood people been thru.... not to know the fact is? As a child we express all the moods, emotions and what we feel towards other kids or grown ups that we dont like or annoyed us.... its purely black and white the way we express our bad mood, good and great mood, like it is. If your are still doing that at 16, 20 something or even much later in life? Do definitively say, you are an over grown 6 year old child literally speaking? Any effort to show an iota of compassion to pacify their plight? Is a compassion without a compass or any bearing of truth... that make things far worse inevitably and unecessarily more tragic, no doubt about that. And deserve to be utterly miserable, so too understand the folly of the emotionally childish ways in dealing harsh reality of life. And Time is always on nature side. And very generous to anyone of the amount they need to spend time wandering in the emotional trudgedy of life ; ) In simpler term... learn the art of self control and understand the fundamental necessity of its attributes.... where happiness is its naturally by product.

Warren Buffett once said," Optimism is the greatest enemy in business". I feel the samething in life as well, and I have to say, blind happiness probably is very dangerous in life. Life is filled with happiness and dissatisfaction/sadness, learn to see them as how they are, embrace them, learn from them, grow from them, rather than blindly ignore pain and sadness, because life is also teaching you a lesson during those painful and hard time, and probably more so than happy times, because in hard time, we see cracks, we see things as how they really are, rather than some rosy facades, and most importantly, we see our own flaws in our mind or characters. And those are the best time to improve ourselves. If we always go the so called happy route, or even "act happy" as Dennis suggests, I am afraid we are going to hurt ourselves in the long run.

Very well done. Happy people make the world better, Moody people make the world worse. Good point. Also Children need to take responsibility for their own mistakes starting at 13 and let their parents off the hook. Eye opening, I realize a parent can still effect mood and personality at that age, but every child should know that they have the greater responsibility for their actions and happiness. My children were for the most part happy but did not find that out until after they left home. Very insightful. Thank You for sharing.

Maybe appreciation and enjoyment would be more accurate than happiness. He seems to be asking for everyone to have a sense of humor. Alright, that’s good, but that’s not obligatory. Peddling happiness as humor masking pain. Although, the two second section on responsibility is probably the most important part of the talk. (Take responsibility, behavior/values over emotions - battle of feelings/opinions, don’t envy anyone everyone has pain) You can acknowledge you’re feelings without them controlling you. Still, this is a real good presentation, but I recommend to listen to it on speed x 2. This was a finely packaged “suck it up.” And a reframed “fake it till you make it.” But, so what. lol.
