    Special Edition with NYTIMES BEST SELLING AUTHOR VINCENT ZANDRI

    in Lifestyle

    The show will heat up as author Vincent Zandri and host Fran Lewis talk about his latest release: EVERYTHING BURNS!


    When Reece Johnston was a boy, a fire destroyed his home, killing his mother and brothers while leaving him scarred for life. It also kindled something dark inside him: an irresistible attraction to flames in all their terrifying, tantalizing power. But after two failed arson attempts—and two trips to the mental ward—he was finally able to put down the matches and pick up the pieces.


    With a career as a bestselling crime writer going strong, Reece is working to fix his broken marriage to Lisa and be there for their preteen daughter, Anna. He’s not just dealing with his own demons; there’s a world of deadly hurt bearing down on him in the form of the jealous rival he’s bested in literature and love, who’s determined to see Reece crash…and burn. But a guy like Reece knows how to take the heat. And thanks to his lifelong friendship with fire, he also knows how to bring it. When the fire rages within him who will be there to put out the final flame before it's too late!


     


    Join me in the chat room with this great author to talk about how he created the title, why he chose arson as this topic and what happens when a best selling author finds himself falling prey to a psychopathic killer.

    Bridges Programming, geo engineering watch, with Bonfire

    in Energy

    In this edition of Landslide, Bonfire  will spend the first hour with Dane Wigington, lead researcher at www.geoengineeringwatch.org. They'll define geoengineering and, in particular, the technique known as Solar Radiation Management. What are its effects on fundamental Life Processes such as photosynthesis, absorption of Vitamin D and on the  rise in diseases such as asthma, autism, and Alzheimer's? What is "Global Geoengineering Governance"? And, by its own admission, why does the Pentagon intend to "Own the Weather" by 2025 (or sooner... like... now!)?  What are the military uses of the atmosphere, including HAARP (the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program)? Why are these programs which are so visible in the Sky... so well hidden...from human consciousness... and... further... "obscured" by willful ignorance?


     


    In her second hour Bonfire will further address the phenomenon of "things we cannot/will-not talk about".  And she'll be funny and delightful, as needed, to find a balance as we teeter on the edge.

    Brain Health for Life with Mental Health Expert Karen Unger

    in Health

    In 2014 approximately 5.2 million people in the U.S. suffered from Alzheimer's, a number that is expected to triple by 2050. There is growing evidence that diet and lifestyle can affect the brain and impact cognitive aging. Promoting future brain health requires learning what to eat, what to avoid, and simple lifestyle changes.


    In order to make these changes we have to understand the specific effects our environment and food supply are having on us, and we have to understand how diet and exercise can protect our brain.


    Using her three decades of university, research, and consulting experience, today's special guest, Karen Unger, M.S.W., Ed.D has brought together the latest information on brain health and shared it in her book, Brain Health for Life: Beyond Pills, Politics, and Popular Diets. In clear language Karen Unger gives us all the information we need to be strong, vibrantly healthy, and intellectually sharp throughout our lifespans.


    Karen's initial motivation to research this topic came after reading a report on the poor health of people within the mental health system.She then embarked on a four-year project to understand why this is so and what we can do about it. Today she is here to share what she has learned with us so we can make educated choices about our own health.
