Your dad will love these simple but practical Father’s Day gifts

In 1909, Sonora Smart Dodd listened to a sermon on Mother’s Day that caused her to reflect on her own upbringing. Sonora’s father was a Civil War veteran who raised her and her five siblings after their mother died in childbirth. She presented her ideas to local religious leaders, and with their support, the first Father’s Day was held on June 19, 1910, in Spokane, Washington. It took until 1972 for Father’s Day to officially become a national holiday.

The purpose of Father’s Day is to honor the father figures in your life. This is traditionally done by spending time with those people who had a positive influence on your life and giving them a gift, such as a tie rack or power tools. But sometimes dads can be hard to buy for. This list has 21 simple yet practical gift ideas they will love. Don’t miss our testing insights on the Apple AirPods Pro, Theragun Elite, and Echo Dot devices!

Vicki Yates to retire after more than three decades at NewsChannel 5

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — For more than three decades, anchor Vicki Yates has brought class, kindness, integrity and strong work ethic to NewsChannel 5 every day. Now it's time for a new chapter: retirement.

Vicki joined the NewsChannel 5 team in 1990 and in the years that followed, won multiple awards for her anchoring and longtime franchise "School Patrol," which profiles schools, students, and teachers across Middle Tennessee. Vicki has been on the front lines of wall-to-wall breaking news more times than we can count -- delivering calm, reassuring messages to viewers in times of crisis like the tornado outbreak of 1998 and most recently, the tragic shooting at The Covenant School.

Vicki is an inspiration to many young journalists not only leading by example, but encouraging and mentoring others. She also has a servant's heart: lending her free time to causes -- many of which serve single moms and struggling families. At NewsChannel 5, we know her as the epitome of style (you should see her shoe collection!) and unwavering kindness (she brings in cookies for her co-workers every Friday).

Vicki's last day at NewsChannel 5 is June 2nd, 2023. In retirement, Vicki hopes to travel and spend a lot more time with her family.

Which presidential candidate would be the worst for Black America?

Most Americans differ in their opinions on economic policies, experience and qualifications. Some people want to like the person they vote for while others base their voting decision solely on their individual political leanings. But, if you’re Black and not named Jason Whitlock or Stephen A. Smith, there’s one thing you can agree on: Racism.

While it is impossible to know which 2024 presidential contender is the most racist, it is possible to look at their policies, history and actions and determine how they would affect Black Americans. So, instead of determining which of the 2024 candidates would be the best for Black Americans, we decided to rank them in terms of how much potential harm they could do to African-American citizens. Our threat level rates them on a scale of 0 (no threat) to 5 (Florida).

12. Marianne Williamson

Who she is: The 70-year-old Democratic longshot is a spiritual leader, pastor, author and ultimately, a politician who has never held political office.

What she’s done for Black people: Never held office.

Anti-Black analysis: Marianne Williamson is not a flawless candidate. Her campaign site seems to have a plan for addressing every issue facing America, including LGBTQIA+ rights, climate change, Native Americans, women’s rights and even justice for animals (I’m not making this up). Yet, for some reason, aside from reparations, she doesn’t seem to have a specific plan for Black America. While some may find that bothersome; don’t worry, there is a good reason why a Williamson presidency would be great for African Americans:

Marianne Williamson will never be elected president.

Threat level: 0

The only way that Williamson could even win the Democratic nomination is through the power of metaphysical manifestation, the magic of crystals and the prayers of Black grandmothers. And if Black people’s prayers actually had an effect on presidential politics, Black people would be fine.

11. Joe Biden

Who he is: Depending on what one believes, Biden is either the 46th president of the United States or the illegitimate president who stole an election from Donald Trump.

What he’s done for Black people: Appointed Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court, who helped create the U.S. Sentencing Commission policy that resulted in the largest one-time release of federal prisoners in American history. Appointed a record number of Black women and nonwhite judges to the federal bench. His marijuana pardons and student debt relief disproportionately benefit African Americans. The Small Business Administration provided $17 billion in loans and issued an executive order prioritizing government contracts for Black-owned businesses. The CARES Act provided record amounts for HBCUs and underfunded Black school districts. If Trump deserves criticism for saying there were good people on both sides of white supremacy, then Biden deserves credit for calling white supremacy a threat to democracy. 

Perhaps the greatest argument for four more years of Biden is that it means there will not be another four years of Trump.

Anti-Black analysis: It is fair to criticize Biden for both his failings and shortcomings as president–especially after he received the overwhelming support of Black voters.His administration created the Safer America Plan, which called for an additional 100,000 police officers to shoot Black people in the face but offered no accountability. He will not specifically say that he supports reparations (because he does not support reparations). He has a tendency to defer to Congress on issues that affect Black Americans (i.e voting rights and police reform) but will literally walk into a war zone for the things in which he believes. To be fair, Biden’s flaws have less to do with him being a moderate Democrat who, like the party he represents, chases white voters at the expense of ignoring the will of their most loyal demographic base. 

Mt. Juliet teen graduates high school after beating cancer

MT. JULIET, Tenn. (WTVF) — For Corban Young, the dream was crystal clear. "He's wanted to go to college since he was like nine years old," said his mom, Audrey Schrock.

But last year, it was right after a campus tour when things took a turn. "I thought it was just a cold and then I thought it was a sinus infection," said Corban.

On St. Patrick's Day, he went to the emergency room and learned his diagnosis.

"So I had leukemia, specifically acute myeloid leukemia," said Corban. "It’s one of the two major types of leukemia."

Audrey said, "when he was first diagnosed everybody was saying 'how do you feel? What are you thinking? What's going through your mind?' And I said 'I'm picturing moving him into his dorm room' because I can't go anywhere else."

While most teens spent summer by the pool, Corban went through chemo at Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt.

Christians Are Asking ChatGPT About God. Is This Different From Googling?

Hundreds of millions of people have used ChatGPT since its arrival last November to plan vacation itineraries, help them code better, create pop-culture sonnet mashups, and learn the finer details of their beliefs.

For years, Christians have Googled their theological questions to find articles written by humans answering questions about God and God's Word. Now, people can take these questions to AI chatbots. How will natural language-processing tools like ChatGPT change how we interpret the Bible?

As John 17:17 says, “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth” (ESV). Thus, interpreting the Bible is, to a great extent, the search for Truth. Large language models (LLMs) such as ChatGPT don’t have, by definition, a source of truth; it’s simply not in the model—hence why sometimes they make things up and extrapolate. They are incapable of finding truth, so that even when they do stumble across it, they are unable to recognize it as such.

Thus, when reading an output of an LLM regarding the Bible, we must understand that said output does not come from its search for truth within His Word but rather from a mixed “regurgitation” and extrapolation—a.k.a. algorithms—of what others have said. As a result, ChatGPT cannot offer a new interpretation of the Bible by itself; rather, a person querying ChatGPT may find in the chatbot’s answer a new way to interpret the Bible, just as they may find it in an answer offered by a parrot. Because it copies others, the parrot ends up speaking truth, even if it has no idea it has done so.

Suman Kumar Polepaka, founder of BibleMate, now based in Munich, Germany

Generative text AI models, like ChatGPT, are transforming how we seek answers to theological queries. Gone are the days of Googling and scrolling through endless articles. Instead, AI chatbots offer instant, clear, and authoritative responses, compiled from a vast array of texts, books, and articles. Their convenience, speed, and interactive nature make them a go-to resource.

They can even enhance personal Bible study by providing instant, diverse interpretations and context for any passage. But here's the catch: ChatGPT, being a general-purpose model, may lack theological or biblical accuracy. Its goal isn't to foster personal relationships with God or nurture spiritual growth.
