In Burlington, Vermont, 1962, seventeen-year-old Gavin Weaver survives a dreadful explosion, six hours of brain surgery, and thirty days in a coma, to awake possessing not just one savant talent, but several, including art, music, mathematics, and memory—and all without suffering any of the usual mental disabilities associated with head trauma...if he survives
According to Dr. Darold A. Treffert of the University of Wisconsin, there are fewer than one hundred reported cases of prodigious savants in the world. Those few who possess the savant syndrome all have an island of brilliance that allows them to excel in some remarkable talent. Unfortunately, they all share various developmental disabilities.
In Burlington, Vermont, 1962, seventeen-year-old Gavin Weaver survives a dreadful explosion, six hours of brain surgery, and thirty days in a coma, to awake possessing not just one savant talent, but several, including art, music, mathematics, and memory—and all without suffering any of the usual mental disabilities associated with head trauma.
To learn more about Gavin, his syndrome and the talents of a prodigious savant join me at four eastern, three centeral and two mountain. Ask your questions in the chat room.
The odds are slim that Gavin will survive both the internal and external conflicts, which keep him from the one thing he wants most, the girl he’s loved since childhood.

"JJ Semple didn't start out to explore Kundalini; he stumbled into it years ago, when a stranger handed him a book called, The Secret of the Golden Flower. At first, he didn't understand the book. Although it concerned a Kundalini Meditation method, the text was difficult to penetrate. He wondered if such an ancient text might apply to the modern world. Did the method really work? Was there more to it than poetry and symbolism?
Only after practicing the method did he find the answer. Along the way there were lots of twists and turns, false starts and missteps. Nevertheless, he persisted, working his way through the method one technique at a time, finally discovering it was a method for awakening Kundalini. Condensing The Secret of the Golden Flower into a viable modern method of meditation took time, over thirty years, in fact. His discoveries are described in JJ Semple's books, Deciphering the Golden Flower One Secret at a Time and The Backward-Flowing Method: The Secret Of Life and Death."

Today, the Baltimore Ravens (9-5), winners in four of their past five games, travel to play the Houston Texans (7-7) at NRG Stadium. Coming off a 20-12 victory over Jacksonville last week, Baltimore is seeking its sixth playoff berth in the past seven years. Houston, which dropped a 17-10 decision at Indianapolis on Sunday, is 3-3 at home this season.
In seven all-time meetings between the Ravens and Texans, Baltimore holds a 6-1 advantage, including a 2011 Divisional playoff victory. Several former Ravens return to where their NFL careers began. Owen Daniels, Jacoby Jones, Justin Forsett and former Texans Head Coach Gary Kubiak all return to Houston---Daniels and Kubiak for the first time since leaving.
Entering Week 16, the Ravens own the AFC’s sixth playoff spot. Baltimore is in a tight race in the ultra-competitive AFC North, which is the only division in the NFL where three teams are at least three games above .500. The Ravens, who have already played five of their six division games (a Week 17 home battle with the Browns remains), are a half-game behind leader Cincinnati (9-4-1). Pittsburgh is also 9-5, and currently owns a tiebreaker over Baltimore, while Cleveland is 7-7
Alan & Tavares will breakdown todays contest. They will tell you how the Ravens can contain JJ Watt, continue to sack the opposing quarterback and come out of Houston with their 10th win of the 2014 campaign. You will hear from players such as Joe Flacco, former Texans TE Owen Daniels, JJ Watt, Andrea Johnson, Arian Foster and former Houston Head Coach Gary Kubiak.

"Spiritual development is all about transformation. Transformation is a very personal undertaking. Each individual must find his or her way. Transformation — from the initial search-for-truth to the final activation of the Kundalini~Life Force — should not be thought of as a single event, but a flow of events, each one with a slim likelihood of completion. So much goes into completing the process: inspiration, motivation, discovery, detective work, exercise, meditation — to say nothing of frustration, disappointment, and disinformation. The path is long, hard, and uncertain, because up till now, no permanent, voluntary, safe, repeatable method for shepherding a novice through the entire process existed."
