The concept of whether one is competent to stand trial is commonly understood as applied to adults in criminal court proceedings. When it comes to kids who face delinquency petitions, the concept because less clear due in part to the issue of age but also due to mental illness, intellectual disabilities, and developmental immaturity. All these factors can impact juvenile competency and the ability to "restore" a child to competency in a time frame that falls within the juvenile court's jurisdiction. As research continues to emerge about youth, their development, and elements that contribute to delinquency, states are responding by creating or amending competency tests or standards for juvenile courts to use. On this episode, guests will discuss trends across the United States and will share lessons learned around the development and implementation of competency standards for delinquency proceedings in juvenile court. Guests: Doug Althauser, Attorney, Douglas Althauser Law Kimberly Larson, Assistant Professor, University of Massachusetts Medical School Anne Teigen, Senior Policy Specialist, National Conference of State Legislatures
Will Feminine Power lead America to Distinction or Extinction? Hollywood has no shortage of imaginary tales of earth’s apocalyptic future. And Extinct civilizations tell us that our future as a species relies upon the earth’s change from masculine to feminine energy. Whether you foresee a doomsday or an enlightened future for our species may depend on who you believe… the fiction writers… or the anthropologists? How about both!
Yale and Harvard trained Cultural Anthropologist Bill Gladstone is also a fiction writer with a flair for the facts and an eye on mankind’s uncertain future. In his 3+ decade career as a researcher, agent, publisher, author and film producer, Bill has seen the close-up of where science meets sci-fi. In the words of Mark Twain: “Fiction is obligated to stick to the possibilities. Truth isn't.” With America at the leading edge of world influence, and the issues that we are facing today, many are concerned that both America and, by extension, mankind is reaching a “tipping point” in the ecological / economic balance of our world civilization. 12-21-2012 was expected by many to be the end of times, but Gladstone’s research contends it was actually just the beginning of a new 26,000 year cycle, one in which feminine rather than masculine energy will prevail.
Author of the internationally bestselling novel The Twelve, Bill Gladstone is a renowned agent, publisher, and a cultural anthropologist and expert in indigenous cultures with degrees from Yale and Harvard.

THIS IS DEFINITELY A SHOW MEN SHOULD TAKE PART IN!
Although crying is natural, there are still many signs and messages that strong men don’t cry.
Many parents raise their sons to cry privately, if at all. It has been ingrained in many men, at an early age, that masculine identity means holding back the tears except during times of extreme grief.
With many men who hold back the tears or curtail their emotion, is it any wonder why many may be suffering from mental, physical, and spiritual health issues ?
Well, on this episode, in the first hour, we’re going to discuss this very topic with the cast of “THE THINGS THAT MAKE MEN CRY” which opens in Los Angeles on November 1, 2013. We will discuss this powerful new play, which deals with the complexities of men who internalize their emotions.
In the second hour, we are honored to have one of the nation's leading clinical psychologists, Dr. Gloria Morrow, who will discuss the parallels of her work and being co-producer of “Things That Make Men Cry”. Dr. Morrow will provide information that is sure to help many men who suffer in silence when it comes to their emotional well-being.
Please join us on Wednesday, October 23, 2013, for “Real Men Don’t Cry: A Cultural Fable”
