SORT BY Relevancy
We are restarting our blog-radio show, "Heroes of Katrina." Several years ago, we hosted the show under the generous support of Bonnie Kaye ("Books of Excellence"), who provided support for our efforts.
We are now restarting the show under a thematic of "Ten Years After." What are the heroes written about in the book, "Katrina: A Freight Train Screamin'" doing now? How have their lives changed. What is new and interesting for them?
All these questions are important, as Katrina changed many lives in many ways...As always we provide this show to exhibit a perspective of the resiliency of the human spirit.
As the winds of Katrina blew, lives were changed. People did what they had to do...and their stories reflect the power of human and perseverance and spirit.
What better than ten years later do we explore lives affected and re-equlibrated and re-reflected.
Please join us for an inspirational and reflective discussion on the human spirit as reflected by the changes of lives.
Join us August 29, 2014 for our special Hurricane Katrina 9th Anniversary show ...
Hurricane Katrina ... was the costliest hurricane, as well as one of the five deadliest, in the history of the United States. Among recorded Atlantic hurricanes, it was the sixth strongest overall.
Katrina was the costliest storm in United States history - with amounts over $81.2 billion. The death toll was over 1,836.
I just so happened to be named "Katrina" and this was my personal site ... little did I know that over 15 billion hits within one day of Hurricane Katrina hitting the coast would come here ... to learn ... to read ... to find help ... to offer help ... and that this website would be used as such to be a blessing to thousands of people all over the globe. We still get over 60,000 hits per day ... 9 years later!
8:00 pm right here!
When the winds of Katrina began to die down, the flood waters began to rise. For St. Bernard Parish, the flooding was nearly absolute. 99% of the structures had been flooded and destroyed. In some places 25 feet of water lapped up upon the rooftops.
St Bernard Parish is the only county in the history of the United States to have been nearly completely destroyed.
As of the census of 2000, there were 67,229 people (an increase of 598 or 0.9% over the previous decade), 25,123 households, and 18,289 families residing in the parish. The population density was 145 people per square mile (56/km²). There were 26,790 housing units at an average density of 58 per square mile (22/km²).
After Katrina, with an entire population reeling from the destruction, many evacuated. Those that remained waited for the waters to subside and began the long process of re-building.
For perspective, as of the census of 2010, there are 35,897 people. The community is still re-building 10 years later.
During the storm, the St Bernard Parish Fire and Sherriff's Department deployed to aid the community as the flood waters rose and remained.
Chief Thomas Stone is our special guest.
Chief Stone recently told us, "So much has occurred with the recovery and rebuilding of our departments, such as building new stations, replacing our apparatus, hiring and training new firefighters. Our departments have been to hell and we’re not back yet. We had a mass departure of senior officers in the years after Katrina, threat of layoffs of firefighters and all the red tape trying to rebuild. We have not even replaced all of our equipment lost through the Public Assistance Project Worksheet program 9 ½ years later".
Please join us for what promises to be a fascinating show about perseverance, reality, hopes, and dreams.

During the month of July, please enjoy these previously recorded shows. We will return live every Tuesday night beginning August 5, 2014. Enjoy the summer!
Using Hurricane Katrina as a model, this speaker will discuss the phenomenology of disasters in America. Various deleterious factors can be forecast that impede effective emergency response. These factors can be better managed when one person is placed in a role to oversee and manage the crisis phase of a disaster. A Conflict Management Professional can unify the ad hoc crisis management team and ensure its accountability and engagement. Provision of a structural solution of this nature would signify a commitment by our government to mitigate human misery in disasters.
Join us as we speak with Cindy Mazur, she has just earned her PhD from George Mason University’s Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution in Fairfax, Virginia. Her research is in Conflict Management and the emergency management challenges of Hurricane Katrina. Cindy is the Director for Alternative Dispute Resolution in Washington, D.C., at a federal agency that delivers emergency management services.

Listener's Call to Action: We need to hold our government leaders/politicians accountable. We can do this by writing letters to our Congressman.

Red Elk Speaks About Katrina - Why did it happen?
This was Red Elk's eighth Prophecykeepers Radio Interview. He spoke in great earnest concerning how to prepare spiritually for The End Times.
Grandfather Red Elk was a guest that night on Art Bell's Coast to Coast AM hosted by Ian Punnett, heard by over 10,000,000 people worldwide.
Telling the riveting true story of what happened when Kevin Scott Hall took in a refugee of Hurricane Katrina, Hall’s second book, ‘A Quarter Inch from My Heart’ is a story of love found in the unlikeliest of Determined to help Maurice “get back on his feet”, Hall was still thrown for a loop by what transpired. Over two-and-a-half years, the two men lived as roommates and friends, forcing Hall to examine his own feelings about race, class and love. When Maurice was diagnosed with a rare lung cancer and AIDS, Hall stayed with him until the bittersweet end, looking after his friend and watching his spiritual and emotional growth.
“When Maurice died, I realized what I’d lost and I began to revisit many experiences that I hadn’t thought of in years,” says the author. “I was the victim of a random street stabbing in 1994, and the event reverberated through my life. In writing the memoir, I detailed my struggles as an artist, family tensions and other events from my past in an attempt to understand how I had come to this moment – letting a mysterious stranger into my life and growing closer to him than I’d ever been to anyone.”
“A Quarter Inch From My Heart is a harrowing account of love and loss. Kevin Scott Hall writes about being young in New York City and reckoning with how we all must grow up by taking care of each other and ourselves. His memoir is not only about one life or even the defining, complicated friendship at its center, but about the universal project of being decent, thoughtful citizens of the world. It is at once deeply introspective and outward reaching.”

Today’s Survival Show is the creation of Bob Mayne. I am an everyday guy, not a survival teacher or author. I give you an everyday guy’s perspective on getting prepared for events that can happen on a daily basis, as well as those rare events that are extremely catastrophic. However, I don’t engage in tinfoil hat thinking. I keep it full of common sense to help you “do what you can, with what you have, wherever you are.” This podcast is published once a week. I live in San Antonio, TX with my family. Thanks for downloading and listening.

This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!
