    in Pets

     As Founder and Executive Director of the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) since 1990, Dr. Laurie Marker pioneered new ideas in cheetah conservation, and has formed cooperative alliances on behalf of the cheetah that had never before been possible. She is recognised as one of the world’s leading cheetah experts.  She conducted ground-breaking research on the re-introduction of captive-born cheetahs into the wild. It was at this time that she learned about the conflict between livestock farmers and cheetahs.In 1990, Laurie founded her international non-profit organisation and set up its headquarters in Namibia in 1991. From humble beginnings in a tiny farmhouse in rural Namibia to an unparalleled conservation model for predator conservation, Laurie has built a world-renowned organisation.

    Laurie’s tireless work to unite a nation, continent, and the world in the effort to save the cheetah is impressive.Laurie chairs the Conservancy Association of Namibia (CANAM). She has learned that with improved livestock and wildlife management techniques, cheetahs, people and livestock can peacefully co-exist.

    Laurie has received many international awards for her work in cheetah conservation. In 2000 she was recognised as one of Time Magazine’s Heroes for the Planet and in 2008 was presented with the Gold Medal Award from the Society of Women Geographers.

    I was just thinking…Mind control,African holocaust and Agent Provocatuers

    in Education

    Can we believe what we see and hear in this society? Do we know the hidden history of the African Holocaust? What lies are we being told today? What are agent provocateurs? Our minds....oh our minds!

    My husband loves to keep newspaper and magazine clippings…it was so bad at one time that we had a room with boxes full…thank God for USB’s. But it is important in understanding the past to understand the future…we need to follow the bread crumbs.  We are being fed suggestions on the back of shock and trauma.

    Assassinations, threats of war, earthquakes, tsunami, floods, terrorism and constant police murders are all shocks and Trauma are followed by the Power of Suggestion to get us to believe contrived lies.

    Listen in or call...

    Friday @ 5pm pacific time or 8pm eastern time.

    in Travel

    Travel around the globe with World Footprints today as we go to Namibia, the Mediterranean and Detroit. First stop…Namibia with Dr. Laurie Marker, Founder of the Cheetah Conservation Fund.  Since 1990, Dr. Marker has pioneered new ideas in cheetah conservation and has formed cooperative alliances on behalf of the cheetah that have never before been possible. She is recognized around the world as one of the leading experts on cheetahs, both in the wild and in captivity.  Then we’ll journey to the Mediterranean with travel author and TV host Rick Steves.  Rick is on a mission: to help make European travel accessible and meaningful for Americans.  Rick just returned from two Mediterranean Cruises and he joins us to talk about his newest guide book, Mediterranean Cruise Ports, and the art of travel. Finally, Detroit is a city that has not been portrayed favorably in the media (except on World Footprints) so we were surprised to meet someone who left his Fortune 500 employer to move to Detroit for the purpose of showing the city in a different light.  Philip Lauri is the Founder and Director of Detroit Lives! and he join us to share why Detroit is a vibrant place to live and discover.

    Gordon Myers - author of Built to Bully and Street Smart Kids

    in Women


    Gordon Myers was born in Namibia, then grew up in a tumultuous environment in Cape Town from the age of 7. After skirting serious bouts of all kinds of trouble,  at 25, he took off, with nothing more than a backpack. After eight months of winging it through 11 different countries, he arrived in the USA, alone and broke. Without a formal education or a single contact to rely on, one can only imagine what lay ahead.

    From day one he started learning lessons the hard way, enduring many more as he discovered the huge delayed culture shock and how some things worked in the USA, a very different world than he was used to. Now, 26 years later, married for 22 years, a proud father of an accomplished daughter and son, Gordon knows what it is like to seek information in nontraditional and innovative ways.

    His experiences have allowed him to be an expert in managing life when things are not so easy. Still living a very much appreciated lifestyle for longer than he can remember, Gordon has made it his mission to help others, especially our youth, as he is the first to admit that without help, it will be impossible to thrive in this ultra competitive world. 

    His one caution is that you have to be the kind of person that others want to help...while this may not be so obvious it is critical and very worthwhile taking the time to learn.

    These books, Street Smart Kids and Built to Bully were written with a passion for saving as many people as possible from the hard knocks that either slow us down or take us out of the game.
