Figure skating is notoriously rife with drama and intrigue. Since its introduction to the Winter Olympics in 1924, figure skating has been one of the most popular, yet controversial competitions.
For the first time in the 106 years since the sport was introduced, figure skating will be a team event at the Sochi Games. In addition to their individual events, athletes from 10 countries will compete against each other as a squad, combining their efforts for a shot at a group medal in addition to individual crowns.
As Olympic events go, this one has the intrigue and secrecy of a Cold War spy novel. Countries have been guarding their playbooks like their national secrets for good reason.
Most recently Amanda won Battle of the Blades with retired NHLer and skating partner Scott Thornton.Amanda joins us to chat about her path to the Olympics and what it means to compete and sacrifice to get to the the top level of amateur sport in the world of figure skating.

Everyone loves figure skating!
“Every winter, millions of Canadians take to the ice, indoors and outdoors, in search of fun and fitness," says Skate Canada, the governing body for the national sport.
In our country, you'll see many figure skating events on television throughout the year - Skate Canada, Canadian championships, world championships, and more. Canadians Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir stole the limelight at the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010 and Canada’s strength as a figure skating nation is a proven result of not only this type of exceptional talent.
A group of skaters and coaches who have been willing to take risks and be part of the continuous re-definition of the sport continue to extend our expectation of what is possible.
Join the conversation as we pull back the curtain on The Inside Edge of Figure Skating with Elvis Stojko and PJ Kwong, CBC Figure Skating Correspondent and author of “Taking The Ice”.
• Is the figure skating world in Canada thriving?
• Will be able to maintain our highest level of world class competitors?
• Internal rivalry, between skaters, has gained bad press for the sport.
• Has controversial judging tainted competition?
• Will the respect for the sport ever return?

Our Children - Are we Influencing them Correctly?
When you’re raising kids it is not a complete science, we are all kinda bumping around trying to figure it out.
Tonight we are going to talk about some debatable thoughts on how we Influence our Kids.
From the way they we speak, the way we dress, the way we reward them with smiles and laughs. We are teaching our children what type of behavior is acceptable or not. What is expected of them, and what behavior is considered good or bad. We reward them with our attention, are you paying attention to the message you send?
Bring your views, thoughts, and examples of what you feel is acceptable or not.
Special Guest: Moses L. Rickett

Some of us are single by intention.
Because its great living your life your way and you don’t have to check in with someone else. . Some of us were pushed into a single life, due to circumstances.
And there are some people out there that would not have it any other way.
There are so many people who thinks being single is the end of the world as know it. They think being with one someone is the key to happiness. If you are alone, you’re going to be miserable for the rest. It’s the stereotypical comments people say about the single life.
And it’s so, so, so, wrong.
The single life can be a great time in a person’s life.
It’s a time when you begin to understand and love yourself.
It’s a time you take to figure out what you want and what you don’t want.
Whether you are single by choice or circumstances, many of us are alone and even though it's impossible to know how many unattached people there are globally, the number of single-person households is growing.
Join me Janice Clarke, Holistic Health Practitioner, Master Herbalist, Nutritional Consultant, Reiki Practitioner and Host of THE SOULFUL HEALING TALK SHOW along with ourPanel of special guests as we discuss the big wide topic of being single. Like how to identify when someone is available and when they are not. Singles in relationships, the pet peeves we have and more!!

Shawnee Braggs is an amazing caterer that has tantalized the taste buds of many a celebrity, political figure and foodie for over 10 years. Known for her creative dishes and exotic marriage of foods, she has become one of the most sought after caterer on both coasts. Well one bite of a meal prepared by Shawnee Briggs and it just doesn’t matter. Some may say she is a cook because the food is prepared with such love and endearment that it’s as if you are sitting at Grandma’s table for Sunday dinner. Others may attest that she has to be a Chef because of the flawless presentation and the skillful manner in which she prepares her meals. Both would be absolutely correct. Whether you are savoring the flavor of her pan seared Salmon or enjoying the warm and fuzzy feeling of her mac & cheese, you must attest, the food is AMAZING. There is something undeniably regal about her food presentation. At any given setting you can sample one of her signature dishes like fruit or shrimp on a bed of roses. These are attributed to her grandmother Rose, which she finds as a source of inspiration to this day. Her ability to create art with her food has not gone unnoticed. Her catering company, Cater By Shawnee, brags of a client list of artists and celebrities the likes of Aretha Franklin, Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, Fifty Cent, Essence magazine, Malaak Rock, Dwayne Wade (Miami Heat), the Prime minister of Antigua and Wendy Williams (radio / television host) as a short list. She has been featured on FatBoy Radio, XM Satellite and was at one point a regular on the Wendy Williams Show and made The Network Journal’s 40 under 40 List. Shawnee’s hard work has not gone unnoticed. She has garnered the attention of a major network and will be shooting a pilot for the show at the end of the month.
