Chris Martenson joined us again today. He's been waiting for China to unravel and now the signs are getting clearer and harder to ignore. As Chris explains, "In the U.S., analysts and policy makers can draw upon a long history of economic policies and debate their applicability to the present. Rising income disparity, for example, is often compared to the Gilded Age of the late 19th century. The financial crisis of 2008 is often viewed as an analog of the 1929 crash that triggered the Great Depression.
China’s recorded history stretches back thousands of years, but in terms of applicable financial and economic parallels to the current economy, there is no precedent. China’s leadership is truly in uncharted waters. This in itself heightens the risk of miscalculation and basing policies on faulty premises."

Are you searching for your soul mate, or maybe some understanding of the dating game? If so, you will want to tune in as Beverly Hills Matchmaker Marla Martenson shares valuable insight on this, always, mysterious topic. Teangelo Live on Books features Martenson’s titles “Diary of a Beverly Hills Matchmaker” which takes readers for a hilarious romp through her days as an L.A. matchmaker in a town where looks are everything and money talks. Also her title “Excuse Me, Your Soulmate is Waiting” which is like her bible to dating; this author teaches readers how to practice the Law of Attraction to find their true soul mate.
Marla Gibbs, the actress who played Florence the maid on the TV sitcom "The Jeffersons." and starred on "227," has given a little back to the old neighborhood by opening Marla's Memory Lane (which is also known as Marla's Jazz Supper Club).
It's exactly what the name suggests, offering authentic old-time Jazz, Standards, and Big Band in a relaxed dining environment.
She opened the club in 1981 (although it's been around for over 60 years in one form or another.) Marla has managed to keep the place going despite financial difficulties, but since 1994, it has been open and closed sporatically. So you'll probably want to call ahead to be sure that something is scheduled. As of April 1999, though, Marla's offered a Jazz Champagne Brunch with live entertainment every Sunday ($17)
Over the years, the club has been a showcase for many up & coming African-American jazz artists. Some of the legends of jazz have played there over the last decade, including Big Joe Turner, Jimmy Witherspoon, Pee Wee Crayton and Albert Collings. In early May of 1995, the club hosted a two-day birthday bash for Marla (replete with live jazz), which was open to the public. It may become an annual tradition. (Her birthday is May 14, by the way...)
The place has a bar and showroom in the front room, and a dining room in the back with celebrity photos.
The only drawbacks are the club's unusual hours (it's open Sunday from 11 AM to 4 PM) and its location in South-Central Los Angeles. (Exercise reasonable caution.)
