    Ted Chabasinski--Barbaric Electroshock still used on adults & children

    in Politics

    In coordination with Citizens Commission on Human Rights (cchr.org) we continue our expose' of the human rights violations conducted under the auspices of "mental health". 


    BIO:


    Ted Chabasinski is an attorney and human rights activist in Berkeley, California. In 1944, as a 6-year-old boy so intellectually gifted he jumped from first grade to third he was taken from his foster home in the Bronx to New York’s Bellevue Hospital where he was pronounced “schizophrenic”, because his mother had been labelled “schizophrenic”. There he began a series of 20 electro-convulsive shock treatments. The boy, Ted Chabasinski, was one of hundreds of children used in ECT experiments. Tests since condemned as barbaric. He remained an inmate in a state psychiatric hospital until the age of seventeen. Chabasinski survived and became active in the civil rights movement and ultimately an attorney.


    In January 2007 Chabasinski acted as the attorney for the late psychiatric survivor activist and author Judi Chamberlain, the medical journalist and author of Mad in America and Anatomy of an Epidemic, Robert Whitaker, and the director of MindFreedom International David Oaks in opposing a motion by Eli Lilly to extend an injunction to conceal documents that revealed that the company had known for the previous decade of the potentially lethal effects of Zyprexa ( an antipsychotic )and had engaged in an illegal off-label marketing campaign.


    As a patients’ rights lawyer, Chabasinski continues to champion human rights, and writes, speaks, and blogs on issues of individual rights and freedoms.


    Most recently, he has organized an International Day of Protest Against Shock Treatment, being held on May 16, 2015. There will be demonstrations in many countries and cities around the world.

    I'm A Mother Living On Purpose

    in Motivation

    This month on Purpose Living Radio, we are ALLLL about celebrating our mothers! The twist is, we are celebrating those who are living on PURPOSE! These mothers not only take the joy of being a mother seriously, but also are ready to conquer whatever to be their own boss. They aren't playing games! 


    This week we have the pleasure of speaking with Donna Hicks Izzard. Donna Hicks Izzard is best known as “Chief Identity Influencer” and is the creator of the innovative The 3W Life training workshops that teach individuals the importance of reclaiming their IDENTITY to be successful in their personal and professional lives. Individuals learn WHOSE they are, WHO they are and WHY they are here. The 3W Life workshops  empower individuals who are broken, stuck, stagnant and invite them to participate in their own rescue by regaining confidence and understanding their worth.


    Donna has authored two books, “Reclaiming Your Identity” and Walking in God’s Master Plan.  She is a featured contributor in the “I AM AMERICA” cookbook along with Chef Jeff and Tavis Smiley.


    Many call Donna a “dynamo” because she seems to be constantly in motion and can often be found anywhere people need inspiration and motivation. She, along with former “White House Ambassador” Susan D. Johnson Cook, as her business manager, developed a strategy to touch as many lives as possible and they did this by having Donna take advantage of all of her varied activities to spread her positive message of hope and inspiration to individuals in business and women in ministry.


    Those who turn to Donna Izzard quickly learn that their identity is their platform. When you know who you are and what you can do. THERE IS NOTHING THAT can stop you!

    Dr YATES teaches adults & children how to apply reasoning in math the simple way

    in Music

     GMX  teaches adults, and children how to apply reasoning in math the simple and fast way.  For example, when learning  the GMX  five times table, here are two easy steps.  Let's take  5x9=?  First, find the half of the number you are multiplying by 5, which is half of 9=4.5, secondly, remove the decimal point and the answer is 45.  GMX teaches times table 0-99 the fast and easy way!
    RHYTHM:   For example 0, 1, 2, 3, (after 0 then comes rhythmically 1 and 2, etc).  This method can be applied in addition and time tables, for example, lets take the nine time  tables: 9x8 =?  Here are three easy steps to get the answer.  First, focus on the number you are multiplying by 9, which is 8.   Second, apply the rhythm technique to the number before 8, that number is 7.  Third, subtract the 7 from the 9, which give us 2.  The answer then is 72. Graspmatix explain more of how and why.RESTORATION:  According to Dr. Yates, restoration means to bring again (reinstate) that which you have stored up for present and future use.  We are restoring the first 3 principles of GMX: perception, reasoning, and rhythm.  For example, 9+8+7+6+5+4+3+2+1=?  The rhythm principle is applied in this way: 9+1=10, 8+2=10, 7+3=10, 6+4=10, then +5 (add the last number 5 to the total 40) and the answer is 45. from 1 to 9, the lowest number is 1, the highest number is 9, and the middle (center) number is 5, from the center to the highest, and/or the center to the lowest, there are four spaces, which derives the number 4.  The middle number is 5.  The answer is 45.  In reasoning  from 1 to 9, the first numeral is identified as an odd number, and the second is an even number.  From 1 to 9, we have 4 even numbers and 5 odds numbers.  The answer is 45.
