Listen in to Fieldstone Common this week as host Marian Pierre-Louis talks to Heli Meltsner, author of The Poorhouses of Massachusetts.
Ever since the English settled in America, extreme poverty and the inability of individuals to support themselves and their families have been persistent problems. In the early nineteenth century, many communities established almshouses, or "poorhouses," in a valiant but ultimately failed attempt to assist the destitute, including the sick, elderly, unemployed, mentally ill and orphaned, as well as unwed mothers, petty criminals and alcoholics.
This work details the rise and decline of poorhouses in Massachusetts, painting a portrait of life inside these institutions and revealing a history of constant political and social turmoil over issues that dominate the conversation about welfare recipients even today. The first study to address the role of architecture in shaping as well as reflecting the treatment of paupers, it also provides photographs and histories of dozens of former poorhouses across the state, many of which still stand.
Heli Meltsner, the curator of the Cambridge Historical Society, has been a town planner and a preservation consultant, undertaking numerous nominations to the National Register of Historic Places and historic resource inventories for municipalities and state agencies. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

He and his wife Justine run the Bushman's Centre, 35 mins south of Hokitika, established in 1991 as a place to show visitors how local people use the South Island forest.

Today on the BeachLifestyle Radio Show, Host Neil Haley The Total Tutor will interview Professional Skier-Angeli Vanlaanen!
In 2005, after graduating high school, Angeli decided to take a leap of faith and try her luck in the professional freeski arena. She moved to Colorado and began her foray into slopestyle and halfpipe training and competing. It didn't take long for Angeli to find success. That year, at the Vermont Open, Angeli won her first halfpipe contest and placed second in the slopestyle competition.
The following year, she won the Vermont Open again, solidifying her mark on the sport. She was rewarded with an X Games invitation the next year, 2007. From here, you can read about and see Angeli's many accomplishments such as her New Zealand Open and World Cup golds, her segments in movies such as Uniquely and 44 Days, and her many published photos in various magazines.
But not one to ever be satisfied and rest on her accomplishments, Angeli is always in constant search of the next challenge and next adventure. In 2010 she set off for Haines, Alaska to attend a Heli Guide School. Later that year, she was the first woman to spin over the famed Mt Baker Road Gap and the photo landed in Freeskier Magazine as part of a nine page feature.
It is the will of the law that the temple of the Lord God Tommy L. Hart be built. It is written (Zech 6:13) - he (the Lord Tommy L. Hart) shall build the temple of the LORD. The law requires that the people see to it that the great work of building the temple be done: it is written (Zech 6:15) - and this (the building of the temple of the LORD) shall come to pass, if ye (the people) will diligently obey the voice of the LORD Tommy L. Hart your God. The building of the LORD God Tommy L. Hart's Temple is a legal requirement: the people have the obligation of assisting the LORD their God Tommy L. Hart in this highly important matter. In this episode, I intend to wrap up the IR's Report on Mary - mother of James, John and Jesus, and begin to unravel things covered in the IR which have to do with Jesus, son of Mary and Joseph the son of Heli.

I will explain what and why before we bring the guest on.Syria, Immigration, Russia, China and anything else you can deal with mentally will be the subject matter tonight. I want to know why heli contracts are going to Russia, why China is buying us up like we are on clearance and why we are, for the first time, taking sides in the ancient battle between Shiits and Sunni Muslims.

So you live in Zephyrhills Florida, and have just won the Powerball. Well it's time to answer your own age old question: What would I buy if I won a stupid amount of money? Well ponder no more, The Wheel Men have the only buying guide you'll need. Now granted; we're so very much hoping that you are not a 94 year old 3-wheeling President of the Tapioca Preservation Society, who hasn't owned a motorcar since 1935. We pray (nondenominationally of course), that you are in fact a 20-something with a death wish and a heavy left foot. We will carefully guide you on this trip to your own glorious demise, with an expert's lead on which horsepower laden sled will fit your dubious needs. How about some points of interest to stop, and perhaps take in an eyeful or two of the world's finest highway vistas in your twilight? You will of course become quite parched during such a journey, so you'll want to bring copious amounts of top shelf booze. A stop at the fantastic small batch Top of The Hill (TOPO) Distillery in NC for some spirit guidance by Esteban will recharge your soul's batteries. Just for good measure- should you run out of fuel after 15 minutes of full throttle mania (True fans will decipher that as the trademark of a Bugatti Veyron.), you'll want to have a good cigar for smoke signals to your roadside assistance heli's on approach. So adorn your very best smoking jacket, grab yourself a tumbler of 150 year old Gran Marnier, and imagine this is YOUR STORY!
In this episode, we'll discuss more feedback from the shows we have attended. My possible attendance of the International Symposium for Personal and Commercial Spaceflight (ISPCS).
Also, some reflections and interpretations of the Unmanned Vehicle University Executive Certificate course, and we'll be speaking with uur guest Stephen Born about his article in Heli-Pilot magazine and the input from the FAA.
