*The Walrus and the Elephants: John Lennon's Years of Revolution, James A. Mitchell.
In late 1971 John Lennon left London and pop stardom behind and moved to New York City, eager to join a youth movement rallying for social justice and an end to the Vietnam War. Lennon was embraced by radicals and revolutionaries, the hippies and Yippies at odds with the establishment. Settling in Greenwich Village, the former Beatle was soon on the front lines of the antiwar movement, championing causes and inspiring solidarity—and suspicion. Seen as a savior by a generation in need of cultural heroes, Lennon was just as passionately hounded by a government anxious to silence enemies within its borders.The Walrus and the Elephants is told by the unlikely cast of friends, among them the members of Elephant's Memory, who were some of the few who got to know the man behind the Beatle. Exclusive interviews include writer and feminist leader Gloria Steinem; Congressional Black Caucus cofounder Ron Dellums; "Chicago Seven" veteran Rennie Davis; immigration attorney Leon Wildes; and legendary poet-activist John Sinclair, whose imprisonment for marijuana—ten years for two joints—kicked off Lennon's American journey. It was a busy year of making music and controversial TV appearances, allies and enemies. It was a time of great change in America, one that saw the end of the movements of the sixties, the beginning of a new era. The Walrus and the Elephants is a look back at that time and at the John Lennon who joined the revolution, through the eyes of those who dreamed, rallied, and fought alongside him.
Wednesday, July 23, 3 pm ET, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show airs a 90 minute special INSIDE THE IVORY TRADE: IS IT TOO LATE TO SAVE THE ELEPHANT? Joining in the conversation are some of the top voices of the subject: Iain Douglas-Hamilton, Grace Ge Gabriel, Andrea Turkalo, Dr. Ron Orenstein,
In 1993, Iain Douglas-Hamilton founded the organization Save the Elephants. A zoologist, he is the recipient of the 2010 Indianapolis Prize for his work on elephant conservation. His chief research interest is to understand elephant choices by studying their movements. He is a frequent keynote speaker at the annual Wildlife Conservation Network expo.
Dr. Ron Orenstein is the author of Ivory, Horn and Blood: Behind the Elephant and Rhinoceros Poaching Crisis. Since 1987, Dr. Orenstein has been an observer at meetings of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES). He was one of the engineers of the compromise amendment that led to an international ivory ban.
Field biologist Andrea Turkalo of The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) has been called “The Elephant Whisperer.” She is the world's leading expert on forest elephants, working tirelessly to map the sometimes inaudible, language of elephants, in an effort to put to together the world's first elephant dictionary.
A native of China, Grace Ge Gabriel is a driving force behind the International Fund for Animal Welfare China (IFAW) and has worked tirelessly to alleviate human-elephant conflicts and raise conservation awareness in the country that stands at the heart of the “blood ivory” illicit trade.

Elephants, Entrepreneurs and Edicators find the extraordinary in the ordinary and help those arouind them achieve excellence.
Everyday on The Teach Jim Show we find ways to work through the challenges and weightier matters of life (elephants) with informal, self-directed learning strategies and engaging exchanges with entrepreneurs and educators.
Today our career path most often leads to the next life cycle of our progress. The idea we are to have a lifelong career plan is crazy. Change is expodential so our chance to achieve excepeitonal excellence under such presures is the new reality. Leveraging our experience and the experience of others we are poised to exceed our ordinary selves and become extraordinary.
Our goal on The Teach Jim Show is to "stop thinking about elephants" and become the exceptional enrepreneurs and educators we were born to be. It is time to start dreaming aloud because dreaming's allowed !
And whatever you do....don't think about elephants, entrepreneurs or educators!
