You have seen Chef Acheson on television competing in Bravo's "Top Chef Masters," as a judge on "Top Chef" and also on "Just Desserts." Born and rasied in Ottawa, Canada, he started cooking at a young age and decided to make it his career after realizing that academics weren't his forte. At age 15, he began working in restaurants after school, learning all he could. Today, his experience includes working under Chef Rob MacDonald, where he learned stylized French cuisine, wine and etiquette at the renowned "Henri Burger Restaurant" in Ottawa, and in San Francisco as the Chef de Cuisine with Chef Mike Fennelly at "Mecca," and later as Opening Sous Chef with famed Chef Gary Danko, at his namesake restaurant, where he discovered a love of the simple, pure, and disciplined. Taking these experiences, Hugh developed a style of his own, forging together the beauty of the South, with the flavors of Europe, and opening the critically acclaimed "Five & Ten," in Athens in 2000. In 2007, Acheson opened "The National" with fellow Chef Peter Dale. Adding to his list of dining establishments, Hugh opened Atlanta-based "Empire State South," in the summer of 2010. Hugh's first cookbook, titled "A New Turn in the South: Southern Flavors Reinvented For Your Kitchen," was released in October of 2011. Also, Wine Curmudgeon, JEFF SIEGEL, will join us to talk about our favorite beverage. Websites: http://www.hughacheson.com http://www.winecurmudgeon.com

Hugh O'Brian, best-known for portraying legendary lawman Wyatt Earp, talks about his acting career as well as HOBY, his successful youth leardership project, in this special episode. O’Brian’s movies include such popular releases as The Shootist, Ten Little Indians, Come Fly with Me, and Twins. With the help of his lovely wife, Virginia, he’s also written a memoir titled Hugh O’Brian, or What’s Left of Him -- just in time to celebrate his 90th birthday on April 19! One of the few remaining classic Western stars, O'Brian has amazing stories of an era in entertainment that there soon will be too few who can share in first person. Friends, family and fans have been encouraging Hugh to finish his autobiography for several years. The book chronicles many never before published stories about Marilyn Monroe, the Marine Corps, living at the House of Seven Garbos, meeting Albert Schweitzer, and being shot between the eyes on the set of The Shootist because the director wanted a film shot without interruption, which wouldn’t allow for the use of a stuntman. O’Brian’s impressive showbiz resume includes 7 Broadway shows, 33 films and 450 television shows. He has a well-deserved star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a Golden Globe Award.
Virginia O’Brian, film historian James Colt Harrison, and Classic Movie Guide founder Diana Saenger will also participate in this celebration of Hugh O’Brian’s upcoming 90th birthday. Happy Birthday, Hugh!

Two great creative minds in the same virtual room!
Join Heath as he picks the brain of two creative, eclectic geniuses: Popular author and economic blogger, Charles Hugh Smith, and CEO of eReleases, Mickie Kennedy.
Charles Hugh Smith is an American writer and blogger. He is the principal writer for the site "Of Two Minds”. which began in 2005, and quickly climbed to the top of the ranks, reaching No. 7 in CNBC's top alternative financial sites.
Mr. Smith’s commonsense social and economic commentary is featured on a number of sites including: Zerohedge.com, The American Conservative, Peak Prosperity, Business Insider, and Lew Rockwell .
Mickie Kennedy began e-Releases over 14 years ago after working in a PR environment that was not meeting the needs of small- and medium-sized businesses and firms. He struck out on his own to build a company that would give smaller firms access to the newswire - with a personal touch. eReleases has grown exponentially since then and even works with big names now, but the spirit of Mickie's original intent has not changed. eReleases delivers personal service and exceptional value to every customer, every time a release is submitted, at every price point.

One of my mentors who was a great leader in my eyes, knew just how to inspire me. He told me he couldn’t motivate me that my motivation was within and it was his job to remove the obstacles between me and my motivation. This was very impactful for me and I use this as the basis in my coaching. In my mind Leadership is more like coaching. It is knowing how to inspire and bring out the best in others through recognizing their skills and abilities, enabling them and supporting them in removing the obstacles in their way. Leadership is at the crux of productivity. That is self leadership as well as leadership of a team. Leaders do need to lead by example. When leadership fails, the team is less effective and efficient and can cost the organization significant sums in lost profits that result from direct and indirect costs.
Think of your team as a group of musicians. Each one plays beautifully on their own when playing the instrument of their choice. Look at the power that group of musicians has together as they become an orchestra. That is where magic is made as they play together seamlessly.

This evening, I will interview and play the music of vocalist Loide Jorge. Although she was born in France to her Mozambican mother and Guinea-Bissauan father, Loide grew up in California. Presently, she is residing in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. For the last ten years, she has shared her music in jazz clubs throughout the United States and Europe. At a tribute for Miriam Makeba in a jazz club in New York, she opened for Paul Simon. In addition, she has opened for the legendary Hugh Masekela and Oliver Mtukudzi. Loide cites Sarah Vaughn, Cesaria Evora and Miriam Makeba as some of her greatest musical influences, but she believes it is her African heritage that has provided her with a fresh musical perspective, a unique sound, and her native tongue. Join us this, evening at Jazz Notes where we are keeping jazz alive.
