    Special Guest Kim Denmark talks about homelessness in America

    in Christianity

    Tune in Wednesday at 10 a.m. CT for an interview with a special guest. Kim Denmark is Walking Across America to bring attention to homelessness, joblessness and poverty. These issues have plagued our nation for far too long because of greed, selfishness and a lack of basic human compassion. Kim believes that these issues must be met head on with the help of small businesses, church communities, celebrities and the people of this great nation. People who are willing to not only start the conversation but engage in change to change the situation.

    Politics Done Right - Can America Be Denmark?

    in Politics

    Senator of Vermont Bernie Sanders wrote a piece this week about what we could learn from Denmark in the Huffington Post. Suffice it to say I found it so fascinating, I blogged about it. 
    Thomas B. Edsall then wrote a piece “Why Can’t America Be Sweden?” in the New York Times. The so called “Daron Acemoglu, an eminent economist at M.I.T.” was quoted in the article attempting to and failing to explain why America just could not create a good safety net. His arguments were so poor that even a high school student with no economics courses could refute it. I left a comment that mimicked most. Most saw that this man was simply carrying water for the American Plutocracy.
    Many of the austerity and small government ideologues are starting to feel the heat from the middle class and the examination of their theories all over the world as their failed policies continue to hurt them. Moreover, research is proving almost on a monthly basis that at best there is corruption in their data, but likely it is a fraud they have played on democratic societies.
    Please call in and add to the discourse civilly.

    Citizens v. Ibredrola and The Deal in Denmark

    in Environment

    Citizens v. Iberdrola Hardscrabble Wind Farm   Sixty-three Herkimer County residents have come together to fight the wind turbines in their neighborhood. Many families have experienced severe, debilitating health effects and their property values have decreased.   We will hear from Melody Scalfone and Jeff DeFrancisco --the attorneys suing Iberdrola and the wind industry's acoustician.   This complaint filed in the New York Supreme Court details the specific impacts claimed by each plaintiff in regard to Iberdrola's Hardscrabble wind energy facility, a 74 megawatt power project that went on line in early 2011. The complaint includes a loss of enjoyment of outside activities on their land, and inability to open windows due to noise; some include loss of income due to noise (including as a voice teacher), and some note behavior changes in domestic and wild animals.   Lisa and Harley interviewed Peter Skeel Hjorth about the situation in Denmark.  Denmark is the home of Vestas and often the windies cite Denmark as being a prime example of the perfection of wind power.  ”No one ever complains of problems there…” Peter Hjorth helped us to understand the reality of the situation there and we hope you will learn a lot by tuning in and listening to the interview.   Peter is a journalist and the author of OCCUPIED BY WIND: The drawbacks of a green industry.  He serves as the official Scandinavian spokesperson for European Platform Against Wind (EPAW)

    Charlita Schuster, Music in Motion, Dance the Dream in Disney World

    in Writing

    Ms Charlita Schuster, Founder/Artistic Director of Music In Motion School of Higher Dance Education, works wonders with young people who desire to pursue a career in dance or related occupations. She is also proud that 5 young students were invited to dance at the Dance the Magic at Disney World. The students and the mothers who accompanied her were Yalena Anderson, 11, and Luz Anderson-Santiago; Markeymar Carbile, 11, and Ralna Jackson; Aniyah Baptiste, 11, and Debra Mason; Brianna Bruce, 12, and Terrie Brow-Rawlins; and Trinity Cupid, 13, and Glenda Cupid.


    Ms Schuster has always been closely associated with local youth. As Founder/Artistic, Ms Schuster is the guiding force behind this institution providing professional dance training to the children of the Virgin Islands.


    Returning home after the birth of her first child, Ms. Schuster began her dance career on St. Croix as a dance instructor with St. Croix Street Theater. She moved on from there to share her love of ballet with her beloved island through her own school, and Music in Motion was born.  For 30 years, Music in Motion School of Higher Dance Education has not only produced fine dancers, but has saved children’s lives by keeping them off the streets. Her institution not only instills focus and self-discipline, but it also brings forth positive attitudes and values. The students of Music in Motion School of Higher Dance Education have thrilled audiences in performances at many different venues across the British and US Virgin Islands; Puerto Rico; the Eastern Caribbean; and Denmark.
