Join us as Sister Jenna welcomes singer/songwriter Gary Wright to the America Meditating Radio Show for an inspiring interview.
At age thirty-three, Gary Wright was at the highest point in his career. He came to prominence as a singer and songwriter during the golden age of rock in the 1970s. His album, The Dream Weaver, had been on top the charts for months with two multiplatinum hits - "Dream Weaver" and "Love is Alive." He also completed a massive arena tour with Peter Frampton and recorded music with legendary musicians Eric Clapton, B.B King, and George Harrison - who would later become one of his best friends. Yet, even with all of this success, he still had many questions about who he was.
What is not as well known to the public, however, is Gary’s spiritual side. At the heart of his upcoming memoir, "DREAM WEAVER: Music, Meditation, and My Friendship with George Harrison," is the spiritual conversion and journey that he experienced alongside his close friend. Until George’s death in 2001, the two spent decades together writing songs, eating Indian fare, talking philosophy, and gardening. Visit Gary’s website at www.thedreamweaver.com
Music historians typically divide the history of ska into three periods: the original Jamaican scene of the 1960s; the English 2 Tone ska revival of the late 1970s, which fused Jamaican ska rhythms and melodies with the faster tempos and harder edge of punk rock; and the third wave of ska, which involved bands from the UK, other European countries (notably Germany), Australia, Japan, South America and the US, beginning in the 1980s and peaking in the 1990s
The Moment of Astrology takes a thorough look at astrology through examining the arguments against, and attacks on astrology by various people and groups over hundreds of years. These relate particularly to the arguments of St Augustine from more than fifteen hundred years ago, Pico della Mirandola from more than five hundred years ago, and more recently of 186 scientists in 1975.

Like so many entertainers, Everett Drake's musical roots began in the church, singing in the choir and later serving as Choir Director of his beloved First Baptist Church South Inglewood. His dynamic passion for singing and directing were soon recognized by other gospel singers and he was tapped to join The Johnson Ensemble, a local singing group. They were enormously popular during the 1970s and recorded several albums. Though comfortable with all types of music, Everett's first love remains gospel music. So, it was only natural his path would eventually intersect with Nashville’s renown gospel tour de force, Dr. Bobby Jones. As a featured vocalist on Bobby Jones Gospel, which is shown internationally on Black Entertainment Television (BET), WORD Television, and IMPACT Television Networks, Everett, again, finds himself in the company of gospel music’s hottest stars, from Shirley Caesar, Rance Allen and John P. Kee to Kirk Franklin, Mary Mary and Tye Tribett. Today you can enjoy exciting original music from his debut cd project, AMEN GOES RIGHT THERE!, produced by Derrick Lee for Dherico Music. Someone once said, “The purpose of life is a life of purpose.” Everett Drake is one of those fortunate people who found his purpose early in life. And, whether touring Switzerland, Japan, Australia or right here in the United States, you can be certain that he will be realizing his purpose…bring music to the masses.
Edward S. Majian, founder and president of SARTONK, the original boxing belt maker, speaks with JennieGirl.
Adapted from the Armenian word zartonk (meaning "rebirth"), SARTONK was founded in 2009, to safeguard a boxing legacy that dates back over three decades.
In the late 1970s, Ardash Sahaghian, a jeweler by trade and artist by birth, was invited to apply himself to the reinventing of championship boxing belts. It was in a New Jersey studio, under the management of Phil Valentino Sr., that Sahaghian gave shape to the now iconic modern boxing belts.
Works include WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO world championship belts, prominent regional models, specialty designs and early MMA (the original UFC belt). These, together with revisions to Ring Magazine belts, and historic reproductions of the John L. Sullivan and Rocky Marciano belts, account for his indelible mark on fight history.
Today, Sahaghian's contributions are advanced by his grandson, Edward S. Majian and today SARTONK is respected as a full-capacity design firm, with a steady flow of original and cutting-edge work.
SARTONK's legacy led to a 2012 induction of 91 year old Sahaghian into the New Jersey Boxing Hall of Fame as Boxing's Master Craftsman. Soon to follow with its release of the "Champion of the Decade" belt. The Decade belt (Marquez v. Pacquiao IV) marked the first time that a belt itself garnered mass attention for its aesthetic value.
In 2013 ESPN The Magazine featured "Constructing for Champions" a photo spread of Sahaghian and Majian in its June 10 issue. This coverage helped elevate boxing belts into mainstream public awareness.
Visiting the Jamaican dancehall of the 1970 and paying tribute to some of the DJs that made their contributions
Deejay (alternatively spelled DJ) is a term in Jamaican music for a reggae or dancehall musician who sings and "toasts" to an instrumental riddim (rhythm).
Deejays are not to be confused with disc jockeys from other music genres like hip-hop, where they select and play music. Dancehall/reggae DJs who select riddims to play are called selectors. Deejays who are more likely to sing are sometimes called singjays.
The term deejay came about as a result of the act of some selectors (as they were called) of the 60s and 70s such as U-Roy or King Stitt toasting to the version side of popular records of the time. The version came about when the record company produced the 45 record with the song, the flip side of which had the instrumental version of the song. This gave the deejays the chance to make up on-the-fly lyrics to the instrumental music. This occurrence gave rise to deejay toasting and the term has been used in that context ever since.
Toasting, chatting, or deejaying is the act of talking or chanting, usually in a monotone melody, over a rhythm or beat by a deejay. Traditionally, the method of toasting originates from the griots of Caribbean calypso and mento tradition. The lyrics can be either be improvised or pre-written.
Toasting has been used in various African traditions, such as griots chanting over a drum beat, as well as in Jamaican music forms, such as Ska, reggae, dancehall, and dub. Toasting is also often used in soca and bouyon music. Toasting's mix of talking and chanting may have influenced the development of MCing in US hip hop music. The combination of singing and toasting is known as singjaying. more here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deejay_%28Jamaican%29

Lanny began wrestling in the NWA territories in the 1970s before becoming a star in his father's promotion, International Championship Wrestling, where he held the promotion's title. Over the course of his regional career, Poffo both tag teamed and feuded with older brother Randy. Upon the ICW's folding in 1984, he joined Randy in the CWA before traveling with him again to the World Wrestling Federation in June 1985. The brother angle was never worked in the WWF and the relationship was never mentioned on-air. While Lanny never attained the popularity of his brother in the WWF. As Leaping Lanny Poffo, the Wrestling Poet he would bring frisbees to the ring, read a short ode written on one of them that he himself had penned, and throw the frisbees into the crowd. Each poem typically ridiculed the heel that he was about to wrestle against, or angered the heel by building heat for the face that the heel was feuding with at the time. Despite wrestling as a jobber, he was arguably in the "Jobber To The Stars" category as he was usually allowed to get in a fair amount of offense in his matches, and won some matches on occasion. Poffo wrestled a high-flyer style at a time when big, heavy wrestlers still dominated the promotion. In April 1989, Poffo was re-introduced as a heel wrestler and became The Genius, adopting a highly intelligent, sniffy persona and wearing an academic cap and gown to the ring. On the November 25, 1989 edition of WWF Saturday Night's Main Event, The Genius beat Champion Hulk by count out due to Mr. Perfect hitting Hogan with the championship belt. Later, The Genius was the manager of the Beverly. It was in this capacity that Poffo last appeared in the WWF, at Survivor Series 1992.
c has always existed as an element of Hip Hop since the culture's birth in the early 1970s. The first rappers (called MCs) would rap over funk, reggae, dub, soul, and disco beats and would hold spontaneous rhyming battles that were meant to verbally attack an opponent called "freestyles" (freestyling and flowing were words used to describe the impromptu vocal delivery). Artists that laid the template for such aggressive spoken word set to a funky beat include James Brown, Gil Scott-Heron, The Watts Prophets, and The Last Poets.
By the spring of 1979, the first rap record surfaced with funk band The Fatback Band's "King Tim IIII (Personality Jock)". Later, The Sugar Hill Gang debuted in the summer with Hip Hop's most famous commercial record yet,"Rapper's Delight".

Ebola is a disease that has been described as the stuff of nightmares. It starts off like the common cold or flu, then quickly progresses into more. The virus attacks everything inside the body and turns it into mush, while the person is still alive. The virus causes massive internal bleeding, which leads to an infected person vomiting blood, and blood pouring out of every part of the body. Most people who get it will die, since the death rate can be as high as 90 percent. However, according to newsweek.com, the epicenter of the current outbreak is Kenema in Sierra Leone. And Kenema is home to the Kenema Government Hospital. Type in vhfc.org. It’s easy to see that this very hospital has what some would argue is a bioweapons research lab. According to Global BioDefense.com, the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases has been operating in the area since 2006, supposedly working on "diagnostic tests".
Lab 257, a book written back in 2004 by Michael Carroll details the interworkings of Plum Island, which was for many years America's foremost bioweapons lab. This laboratory specialized in germs, better known as viruses. The island is located just a ferry ride from New York City and was started immediately after the World War Two. In the beginning, the lab was noted for its ultra-high security. The island is home to all sorts of animals, such as migrating birds, mice, and even deer. In the beginning, there were army patrols and even snipers that would shoot the deer, if they tried to swim across to Long Island.
The author notes how many people say that the Plum Island was responsible for spreading Lyme disease back in the 1970s. In fact, the very disease takes its name from a town called Old Lyme, which is directly across the water from the lab. The book then goes on to say that although the US Government has always denied that it had anything to do with Lyme disease,
Looking Inside the Brain
Background: For the last century, scientists have been able to use the x-ray machine to examine the bony parts of the living human body, but they were not able to x-ray the living human brain. Since the 1970s, however, new computer technology has been devel- oped that goes far beyond the capabilities of the x-ray and allows scientists to exam- ine a living individual’s functioning brain. Because of this new technology, scientists have learned a great deal about how we think, feel, and perceive.
Sports are a major cause of brain injuries to children and young adults. Studies show that 7 to 10 percent of all football players will sustain at least one concus- sion while playing. Pat LaFontaine, a star American-born professional hockey player, had to retire from the National Hockey League after 14 years and six con- cussions. Multiple concussions can result in memory loss, difficulty with think- ing and concentrating, and even more serious problems. Doctors and brain researchers are cautioning all athletes about the dangers of brain injuries.
SUGGESTED RECALL QUESTIONS: 1. What is a concussion? A concussion is much more than being “knocked unconscious.” Neurologists define a concussion as any change in mental status resulting from trauma. Such changes can include headaches, nausea, sleeplessness, moodiness, and an inability to focus one’s attention.
How did Pat LaFontaine’s brain injuries affect his family relationships? He became depressed, had a personality change, and even had difficulty reading stories to his children.
The brain can recover from concussions if it has time to heal. Multiple concussions, especially in a short period of time, can increase the risk of serious brain injury.
