As of this writing he has penned 22 books, co-authored a handful of others and has two in the “Queue” as he calls it this year. Of interest for this podcast is: “How Bad do you Want it” and a follow up on eating habits of the greatest endurance athletes which should be released sometime in 2016.


    How Bad Do You Want It, promises to reveal the neuroscience behind the mind set of successful athletes. What do they think about, why and what results when they do. How we can trigger successful outcomes in our competitions through mental preparation and techniques we can employ to perform optimally. We also discuss the new trend in “Fat adaptation” diets.

    The Frugal Foodie on the Regional Styles of Chinese Food

    in Cooking

    My last show was about how Mexican food has become more authentic in America. The vast variety of styles that comprise Chinese food has also become more authentic and pervasive in America as well. You will find a Chinese food restaurant in every corner of the country, and even the smallest towns.


    America's introduction to Chinese food was very Americanized adaptation of Cantonese dishes. I will be discussing the history of Chinese food in America, and how the various regions of China differ not only in ingredients, but also styles of cooking. Of course, no discussion would be complete without sharing some of these recipes.

    Sea Level Rise 2.0...Exploring Financial Tools For Adaptation

    in Environment

    Reports of scientific studies and local government initiatives to deal with the challenge of swelling oceans fill the internet and traditional media daily. Technical experts dealing with sea level rise are hard at work in South Florida, California, the Carolinas, New York, Virginia and other vulnerable areas the world over.


    But responsible action on sea level rise issues requires another dimension of planning, for which we have just begun.


    Wall Street has a role to play too, as does your local bank and credit union. You have a personal financial role as well.


    Monetary and budgeting strategies to cope with sea level rise, for the average homeowner, renter and small business owner need to be crafted today...to be ready for tomorrow.


    In this episode, we explore some proposed tools and blueprints that financial institutions, consumers and governments should consider to properly plan for the near-term.


    Failure to adapt your financial roadmap today will result in missed options tomorrow. 


    Here we cover the comments of Dr. Leonard Berry Director of the Florida Center For Environmental Studies at Florida Atlantic University and South Florida Attorney and sea level rise advocate Mitch Chester on this vital aspect of preparing for rising seas.


    Contact Mr. Chester here.

And now a new enemy has surfaced in Eastern Europe in the form of an all-powerful organization called Black Scorpion. Once a victim of human trafficking himself, the shadowy group's crazed leader, Vladimir Dracu, has become the mastermind behind the scourge's infestation on a global scale. And now he's set his sights on Michael Tiranno for reasons birthed in a painful secret past that have scarred both men.Already facing a myriad of problems, Michael once more must rise to the challenge of confronting an all-powerful enemy who is exploiting and ravaging innocents all across the globe and has set nothing less than all of America as its new victim. Black Scorpion has also taken the woman Michael loves hostage: Scarlett Swan, a beautiful archaeologist who was following the dangerous trail of the origins of the ancient relic that both defines and empowers Michael, a discovery that could change history and the perception of mankind's very origins.With the deck and the odds stacked against him, Michael must come to learn and embrace his true destiny in becoming the Tyrant reborn as a dark knight to triumph over ultimate evil and stop the sting of Black Scorpion from undermining all of the United States and plunging Las Vegas into chaos and anarchy.A major production for a feature film is in active development in Hollywood based on the franchised character of Michael Tiranno, the Tyrant. The film will be based on the blended adaptation of "Black Scorpion" and its predecessor, "The Seven Sins, " which both have also been licensed to DC Comics for comic books and graphic novels publications worldwide.
