    Venezuela's collapse: Does it give warning to a tottering America?

    in Politics Conservative

    A friend send us a link this week to a report out of Venezuela that newborns are dying in hospital from exposure to bacteria spread by an infestation of opposums at the facility. The report also said restroom service was spotty as well. 


    Six years ago, there was many a Lefty who touted Venezuela's "constitutional right" to health care as a model for the U.S. to follow. Even just a couple years back, as consumer goods began to be in short supply, and the Venezuelan economy was faultering, many an American or European Lefty dismissed such reports as media hype, just biased bashing of a popular socialist regime. 


    The facade of prosperity is now long gone. Venezuela's hit the wall. It's in full collapse, and despite a government crackdown on news reporting, those stories that do get out paint an ever more dire picture. 


    So, is this just the stuff of another South American country falling on hard times, or do Venezuela's hard times hold clues of what may be taking shape in our own USA?


    If you're still among those who insist such a downfall can't happen here, join us Friday at one o'clock Eastern as we connect some of this week's dots that, when connected, suggest we really are living in unparalleled perilous times. 



    Apologies for the lateness in posting this week's show outlook. Doug's been under a jury duty summons all week, and we weren't sure he'd be clear by show time. The summons has been lifted, we're clear for Friday's show.

    I’m still only one in a handful of birth videographers, but birth photography has gained popularity worldwide! Recent media exposure has helped bring awareness to our field, and numerous birth related documentaries have also changed the way people think of childbirth. (i.e. Birthing Into Being, The Business of Being Born, Orgasmic Birth, Birth Day etc.) The times they are a changing, and in today’s world of instant digital gratification and documentation of every personal or world event – professional Birth Videography has an important place. It’s a priceless gift that will be cherished for years and possibly generations to come

    in Lifestyle

    Join me as I interview Mary Ellen Mannix, author, teacher, restorative practices educator & facilitator, and nationally recognized patient safety advocate.   December 1st at 11AM PST/2PM EST.
    Today Mary Ellen is working with her state senator to ensure that all Pennsylvania newborns receive appropriate screening for the most common birth defect – SB 1202 The James Mannix Bill.  www.jamessproject.com
    James's Project is a community based organization focused on improving communication in healthcare with the goal of saving children's lives and clinician's livelihoods. Communication strategies have an impact on our infant mortality rate. We want to improve it.
    James's Project works on three levels to save other children and families from the losses James and his clinicians and families endured.
    --Proactive – on sight, online, and phone education and awareness programs to help parents and caregivers prepare and learn the best practices to safely navigate their child through the healthcare system. There is information that parents can get that will help them most successfully advocate for their child - as well as themselves, so treatment decisions are truly family centered.
    --Active - healthcare coaching & bedside advocacy (which can be bedside or simply by phone) to assist & empower parents who have a hospitalized or child in crisis and feel communication with care providers is not as good as it should be.
    --Reactive - medication and conciliatory services if and when there is an outcome that the patient and family have questions about.

    Feeding Newborns - How To Breastfeed

    in Parents

    www.my-natural-motherhood-journey.com I will be speaking with Mackey Roberson, who is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, about how to breastfeed your newborn. We'll be covering topics such as failure to thrive and nipple soreness. Here's a little about our guest:
    I was born into a military family in the mid seventies with career driven parents who chose to bottle feed me because that’s what everyone else did. Hailing from a family of formula feeding women, the odds were not in favor of me becoming a breastfeeding warrior. But I am. Today I look for every opportunity to engage in discussions with prenatal women about their feeding options. I encourage and support  Moms who choose to breastfeed. When I take off my “professional titles”, I’m a wife, long term breast feeder, baby wearer, homeschooler, co-sleeper, Christian and a myriad of other things. My husband and I share in the joys and triumphs of raising 8 breastfed children. My children are 17,15,13,12,8,6,and my nursling is 15 months old. My life goal is to see breastfeeding become the norm.
