Join us for a conversation with William Goren, J.D., LL.M., LLC., one of the country's foremost authorities on the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. For more than 20 years, he has been advising on ADA compliance as both an attorney and professor and brings a deep, personal understanding of what it means to have a disability, equipping him with exceptional insight on how the ADA actually works. He is deaf with a congenital bilateral hearing loss of 65–90+ decibels, but functions entirely in the hearing world thanks to hearing aids and lip reading. Mr. Goren is the author of Understanding the Americans with Disabilities Act, Fourth Edition and blogs on the ADA.
We'll talk about the ADA in regard to employer practices, disclosure of disability to employer, interactive process, pre-employment disclosure and medical inquiry, accommodations, addictions, and much, much more.

Shifting Doorways, So That You Can Pass Through Your Grief
Join Dr. Maiysha and Coach Elliott this Friday with their special guest, the amazing Ruth Carter! This week’s show is titled, Shifting Doorways, So That You Can Pass Through Your Grief and is sure to be an informative show! See you Friday morning at 9a (ET)!
About our guest: Ruth E. Carter’s unparalleled ability to develop an authentic story through costume and character has made her one of the most sought after and renowned costume designers today. She has garnered two Academy Award (Oscar) nominations for “Best Costume Design,” for Spike Lee’s Malcolm X (1993) and Steven Spielberg’s Amistad (1998).
Ruth Carter holds a BA from Hampton University, majoring in Theatre Arts. Carter has worked in the industry for nearly three decades and has been credited with over forty films to date. Carter is a frequent collaborator with director Spike Lee. Carter and Lee have worked on over ten films together beginning with School Daze and including Do the Right Thing, Malcolm X, Old Boy and the upcoming Da Sweet Blood of Jesus.
Known for her research and diligence to the craft, specifically for her outstanding work for period ensemble films like the highly praised Lee Daniels’ The Butler, she proudly presents Selma, her most recent period work. Soon to be released, Ruth designed Kidnap last year starring Academy Award winning actress, Halle Berry. Currently she has just wrapped the film Keeping up with the Jones, the new season of Being Mary Jane, and Spike Lee’s latest film Chi-Raq. Currently, Ruth is moving on to the new recreation of Roots.
About Pet Therapy
A hand reaches out, a wagging tail approaches, and an elderly face breaks into a smile. It's a scene that's increasingly common in the Helena Valley, thanks to volunteers from the Helena Chapter of Intermountain Therapy Animals. Activity directors and health care professionals report that visiting pets reach nursing home residents, hospital patients, retirement home residents and adult day care participants in ways that other therapeutic activities can't.
The contact may be brief, but it brightens the entire day or week, especially for those who have had pets in the past. In some cases, an animal's visit is transforming. Shy, withdrawn, or depressed people find themselves in animated conversation, angry people relax, and those with memory lapses share detailed recollections of pets they lived with years before. Visiting pets have reached autistic children, stroke victims, Alzheimer's patients, and other "unreachables." Even when nothing dramatic happens, pet visits are important changes of pace for facility residents, bringing excitement, affection, comfort, physical contact and joy.
In addition, to providing companionship (called Animal Assisted Activity), visiting pets sometimes participate in a facility's therapy program. In Animal Assisted Therapy, a dog might stand while a patient brushes him order to exercise specific arm muscles, or a cat might visit a depressed patient to encourage conversation, or someone in speech therapy might give commands to a dog that does tricks or retrieves objects. Anyone who loves animals is likely to work harder and feel more motivated when one is part of the therapy team.
