John Farrell is the Director of Democratic Energy at the Institute for Local Self-Reliance. John is best known for his vivid illustrations of the economic and environmental benefits of local ownership of decentralized renewable energy.
He’s the author of Energy Self-Reliant States, a state-by-state atlas of renewable energy potential highlighted in the New York Times, showing that most states don’t need to look outside their borders to meet their electricity needs. He’s also written extensively on the economic advantages of Democratizing the Electricity System, published a rich interactive map on solar grid parity, and polished the policies (like Minnesota’s solar energy standard) necessary to support locally owned renewable energy development.

Tonight's special guest is Jody Williams from Las Vegas a survivor of child abuse, rape, domestic violence, and sex trafficking. She has been in recovery from drug addiction and the sex industry as well as mental illness since 1985. In 1987, Jody founded Sex Workers Anonymous - the first program of it's kind to help men and women across this country to exit the sex industry and/or find recovery after having left it. Their hotline has answered over 500,000 calls over the years. What started out as a small meeting in a coffee shop soon exploded to now have meeting across the USA, as well as in five other countries now. Spending five years interviewing 1,000's of recovering prostitutes and sex workers, Jody published the Recovery Guide. This is the her group's version of what is the Big Book in Alcoholics Anonymous. For decades Jody has been fighting back the legal brothels from expanding outside of their small county into both California and Nevada successfully. She put together the first ever press conference about trafficking as it exists within the legal brothels of Nevada in 2008 where she was met with violent retaliation. Many courts are using this program today as part of their probation and alternative sentencing programs, while there are local meeting in many cities and phone meetings for those who wish to remain truly "anonymous" or for those who can't travel. The SWA hotline is the only one answered by a survivor that's not connected with law enforcement. Jody has just come out with an e-book for parents on "What to do if you suspect your child is involved in prostitution" based on years of getting the same call over and over again.

LivingEden and other shows like it are showing us the way as each step co-creates Eden on earth. This week we will be exploring the spirituality of the rainforests. One book I discovered, " Wisdom From the Rainforest", is an account of a rainforest forest society, the Teduray, written by an Episcopal priest who became a social anthropologist after a stint of missionary work in the Phillipines. The exploration raises important questions about the fundamental principals of how WE live. The Teduray are a nonviolent society, and to learn how different their underlying guiding principles are from our own is both interesting and humbling. One reader commented, " I never saw a better manual for how to live this way than Wisdom from a Rain Forest." I found that aboriginal societies and tribes living in the rainforests all have common guiding principles living a spirituality of non-competition, peace, cooperation, egalitarian, and truly democratic. They also live in harmony with the earth.
Food, timber, raw materials, grazing and gardening land, and medicines are all products of the rainforests which support our life on the planet and rainforests create great biodiversity necessary for us and our planet to survive. We'll explore the spiritual connection with all of these on the show. Please find pictures of the rainforests to look at while on the show. Listen to rainforest CD's. We love you so please, email questions, suggestions, experiences to firstname.lastname@example.org
We have discussed the similarities int he histories of our two countries and now I would like to fast forward to what is in the headlines in the US today. I will touch on four areas - the BLM land grabs, the demands for a higher minimum wage, gun control and the influx of illegal aliens.
The South African country already portrays a high unemployment level, and does not have work for its own people, let alone illegal’s. Yet the Zimbabweans have proved to be educated, hard working people, and South Africa benefits from the skilled labor offered by these illegals.
These people were given a partial amnesty by the SA Government, but due to the high levels of unemployment in South Africa, the people of SA were incensed and Xenophobic attacks were the direct result of this action.
Xenophobia in South Africa: Last month, during two weeks in May, 2008, a series of attacks took place all over South Africa. In a clash between the poorest of the poor, gangs of local black South Africans descended on informal settlements and shanty towns, armed with clubs, machetes and torches, and attacked immigrants from Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabawe. Locals accused these immigrants of taking jobs away from them, among other grievances. Over the course of those two weeks, over 60 foreigners were killed, several hundred injured, and many thousands of immigrants are now displaced, or are returning to their home countries. Dealing with the aftermath of the attacks has become a large problem for South Africa - prosecuting attackers, accommodating refugees, dealing with a labor shortage, political damage control, seeking to address root causes, and some soul-searching

....been with hundreds of folks as they pass from this life. I'm concerned that most of us are not prepared for the death of a loved one that happens at home. Tonight I thought you might find it interesting to hear my perspectives on preparing to care for those who are dying in your home. In fact, my mother is in process of leaving this life now. I will be by her side as I tell you some things I've learned as I sit with her as her body shuts itself down slowly in preparation to die. So...you get to share a few minutes with me as i help her through this time. It is my hope, this will help someone.

Jennifer Hulsey has lived in Georgia her entire life. She is a Graduate of Berry College; an educator and community activist.
Here are some of Jennifer's own words.......
In 2008, I began the Parkinson's Walk for Hope with the Georgia Parkinson's Association. The goal was to raise funds and awareness for this terrible disease. To date, this walk has raised over $200,000, and is the largest walk per capita in the nation. This walk has put Cedartown on the map, and people come from all over the United States and other countries to participate in our Walk for Hope. Through this walk I saw the spirit of our local community. I realized that empowering people can make a huge difference.
I am a proud member of the Cedartown Exchange Club and honored to be the 1st woman president of the club. A club that stands for preventing child abuse. Our youth is so important to this community. And, I am proud to say that our club has worked tirelessly to help those in need, and encourage our youth to continue their education and pursue their dreams.

In 2008 the United States entered one of the longest recessions in it's history. Unempoyment jumped to over twelve percent and housing values crumbled as many home owners found themselves in homes that had lost their value.
Today, unemployment has srunk to just over six percent and in many places, the housing market seems to be reviving. It is as if the Sun, shining brightly has wiped all the gloom and doom away and here we stand facing a brighter tomorrow.
Is that light we see down our long tunnel of economic reccession truly the end of our economic downturn, or is it disaster coming at us like a speeding train?
