Insight On Business the News Hour

Meet J.J. Kapur AKA the TurbanAtor

When we heard about the work J.J. Kapur is doing to educate others about his minority faith of Sikhism we had to invite him to the studio for a conversation. However, not only is J.J. an incoming senior at Valley High School in West Des Moines he is an accomplished public speaker winning national competitions at Harvard and Emory University. Here we talk about his faith, the Sikh Temples in the Metro (West Des Moines and Johnston), his turban, and what is important for the future. You should know that this is the Insight Extra Edition because we continue the conversation after our air-time expired. We think you'll learn something here.

EchoLight Cinema with Toni Lampley

Last month we were made aware of something called EchoLight Cinemas. We asked around and found that it is an evangelical group that asks churches to become a "movie theater" and show high quality films with a religious bent. Toni Lampley is the contact here in Iowa.  We asked her to come by and help us better understand what's the story.

Non-Christians and Christmas

It's the Christmas Day Special from The News Hour.  We hope you and your family had a wonderful celebration.


What about those people who don't celebrate the religious portion of December 25th?  Today we visited with three of them.  Our first guest is "Realist" Bruce Stone.  He doesn't have much time for religion of any form.  Then we asked our friend Mark Finkelstein from the Jewish Community Relations Commission to talk about Jews and Christmas...and  is it true Jews celebrate with Chinese and a movie?  And then our newest friend Baljit Singh from the Sikh Temple of Des Moines. How does he, and his family, mark the day.

An interesting discussion...  Thanks for coming by for a listen.
