Nationally syndicated advice columnist Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio -- "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in therapy and research.
There have been two major schools on negotiating -- Ury, Fisher and Patton's "win-win"/"relationships are everything" approach and Roger Cohen's "nail 'em to the wall" hardball approach.
Harvard Business School professor Michael Wheeler finds that these rigid, one-size-fits-all strategies often clash with the real-world realities of negotiating. Drawing on his and his colleagues' research, he finds that the most successful negotiating techniques are born of an ability to adapt while negotiating, and use agility, creativity, and wise preparation.
He'll advise us all on how to adapt (and do all the rest) in order to win in negotiation, the subject of his book we'll be discussing on the show, "The Art of Negotiation: How to Improvise Agreement in a Chaotic World."

Becoming better than you are is hard. It takes longer than we expect. It is harder than we imagined.
Easier to accept what we are and rationalize isn't it? Yes, our Lodges are crowded with what I call the initiated diaspora- men who came to the door of freemasonry unaware of the daunting challenges, the risks, the potential for failure.
To ease my burden, could that I would abandon my brother. Being a man of some conscience I cannot. It would be wreckless to think there is a task for me that is part of my development; mentoring him toward the enlightenment.
If the tasks were easy, we would not be initiated. They are purposeful challenges. To discovered what is that purpose, is part of what brings meaning to a life.
Weak willed masons are the fodder that distracts us. Perhaps better for the effort; without petty distraction, bickering whinging, without question we would be focused on growing the ideas of freemasonry. Oh my goodness; a focus on theology, philosophy; we would be well on. Today, humiltity has morphed into self-consciousness that requires a great suppression of facts.
We have a confusing mixture of chain-of-command and self-directed learning that needs our collective attention gentlemen. Stepping onto the level, is horizontal not lateral.
After 156 years, we are barely able to best our betters the citizens ready to take to the parapits at the hinted enhancement of ceremony.
Why doesn't the look and presence of the Craft echo the uniqueness of Arts, History, Science and Philosophy? Where oh where have the antiquaries gone.
Discovere the Grand Lodge Temple. It does exist. Marble, bronze, powerful, beautiful, of another time, of another place.The imagination teases us by leaving it right there- its worth a trip to Germelshausen but don't take my word.
...wishing, wanting, believing, creation.

The Stanley Hotel is a 140-room neo-Georgian hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. Located within sight of the Rocky Mountain National Park, the Stanley offers panoramic views of the Rockies. It was built by Freelan Oscar Stanley of Stanley Steamer fame and opened on July 4, 1909, catering to the rich and famous, including the RMS Titanic survivor Margaret Brown, John Philip Sousa, Theodore Roosevelt, the Emperor and Empress of Japan, and a variety of Hollywood personalities. The hotel and its surrounding lands are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Stanley Hotel also hosted the horror novelist Stephen King, inspiring him to write The Shining. Parts of the television mini-series version of The Shining were filmed there, whereas Stanley Kubrick's cinematic adaptation The Shining was filmed at another resort hotel, the Timberline Lodge in Oregon (besides Elstree Studios in England).
The Stanley Hotel shows the uncut R-rated version of Kubrick's feature film on a continuous loop on Channel 42 on guest room televisions.

On Wise Guy Talk Radio
"How my days working in mob joints led to making "The Real Casino" and now "The Real GoodFellas" Wise guy talk radio is excited to have as it's guest, filmmaker Joseph F. Alexandre to discuss his award winning documentary Back Home Years Ago: The Real Casino- about the real Chicago mobsters who served as the basis for Nicholas Pileggi's book Casino and Martin Scorsese's epic film adaptation. I’m proud to have Joe on my show to discuss his connection to some of the real Chicago 'outfit' wise guys who were the basis for the legendary film as well as the real mob boss from Milwaukee, Frank 'the mad bomber' Balistrieri who was a basis for the composite character Remo Gaggi in Casino. Joe will also discuss his connection to some of the real characters in GoodFellas and his upcoming documentary “I Always Wanted To Be A Gangster”: The Real 'GoodFellas'.
Nicknamed 'Joey Casino' by some of his paisan, gangster pals, Joe will fill us in on the contrasting reality of the mob life w/ the Hollywood version. What's real and what's not, and despite Scorsese's brilliant depiction of the gangster lifestyle there was more fiction than many people realize. (Not to mention Coppola's The Godfather which isn't even close to reality, not that it was ever intended to be.) This is a must tune in radio event for any mob genre fan and all film lovers out there. Don't miss this special inside view of La Cosa Nostra by someone who lived to tell the tale.

Author Christopher Rice joins host Robin Milling over lunch at The Cecil in Harlem to talk about his first supernatural novel, The Heavens Rise which is a page-turner featuring a 'Louisiana swamp mind-control parasite atmosphere.' Chris returns to New Orleans he says to give the community a kindness post Katrina. Compared to his first book A Density of Souls, where he trashed everyone he went to high school with, he is now paying homage to the people of the city and their desire to see it thrive.
Chris says that of all his novels The Heavens Rise is the most cinematic and he would want to be involved in writing the screen adaptation. He may come full circle as he originally moved to Los Angeles to write screenplays; surprising even himself by writing a book.
As the son of Anne Rice and his late father Stan who was a creative writing professor and poet, writing was inevitable. Chris reveals his father read him Tin Tin as a bedtime story while mom favored singing show tunes to lull him to sleep!
Lunch with Chris at The Cecil in Harlem, named for the former hotel, was prepared by Chef de cuisine J.J. It's Afro Asian new American cuisine featured Oxtail dumplings, spicy crispy ginger squid, and crispy okra fries. He brought his influences from Ghana, steeping himself in African markets, and preparing meals alongside the locals. At The Cecil he adds green apples to curry, and perry perry sauce to prawns. Save room for dessert with their peanut opera; sponge cake layered with peanut butter and chocolate and flourless chocolate cake with beany seed brittle.
And watch for a second supernatural thriller from Christopher set on a plantation in the deep South.
