    Beating Stress, Environmental and Financial Stress

    in Health

    We're going to continue where we left off last week, dealing with the ruinous effects of stress on our bodies. There is one source of environmental stress that it nearly ubiquitous, the chemicals in the plastics of bottled water and household detergents and cleaners. We talk about how to avoid them and the problems they produce. Then we tackle the deadliest form of stress, the Number One cause of death in the US and probably the world, financial stress! 

    I believe I am one of the few Holistic Health Practitioners that addresses this problem. But if we are going to talk about health, how can you ignore the Number One killer?  How do we, the student burdened with college debt, the young family struggling to make ends meet on two salaries, the soon to be or already retired person, afraid that they will run out of money before they run out of life, make more money to eliminate the fear, worry and stress that can sicken and kill us?

    To that end, we have invited Winston Thompson to host a Seminar in Philadelphia, Pa next Saturday, the 7th of November. Winston was a Corporate CPA with one of the legendary, Big Eight accounding firms in NY, Arthur Anderson. He then left to start his own tax and accounting firm. Winston Thjompson and Co.which he has grown into one of the top tax firms in Brooklyn, NY. Winston will share his expertise and his experience in starting and running a small business, even examining Franchises,in which he is also an expert, to help fledgling business owners avoid the many misteps and pitfalls so many of us make when startingn our own businesses.

    "Up Close & Personal" with multidimensional eclectic guitarist "Rob Tardik"

    in Music

    Rob Tardik — Moments


    Nov. 2, 2015

    Since the very early 2000s, guitarist Rob Tardik has been dazzling listeners with his exciting and often exotic mix of substantive c-jazz/R&B/rock and burning hot Latin melodies. With tunes so attractive, they are by nature riveting, seductive, uplifting, and powerful.Such is the case with his latest release Moments, another eclectic gem.

    Seizing the moment and leading off with a Latin scorcher, “Sip and Salsa,” inspired by his fiancé’s love of dance, the gifted guitarist soars from one mood to another. Examples would be track two’s sizzler jazz/rocker “Rite of Passage,” then on to the romantic R&B deliciousness of “Moments in Time” featuring the silky lead vocals of one Aiden Castillo and sweet backing harmonies of vocalists Dee and Brittani Cole, and the handsome downtempo Latin-tinged “Eros.” Definitely not applying the brakes on the project yet, Tardik treats us to a stinger with a mean hook called “Hang Time” which is co-written by fellow guitarist Steve Oliver (who is featured in some way or other throughout the album). In fact, Oliver co-produced the album with Tardik. A very cool pairing indeed.

    Tardik enjoys the contributions of other very fine notable musicians here, as well, including saxmen Will Donato and Walle Larsson, trumpeter Gabriel Mark Hasselbach, bassist Gary Grainger (of Acoustic Alchemy fame), pianist/keyboardist Nate Harasim, and a host of others who felt the groove and wanted in.

    Speaking of feeling the groove, you will definitely want to stop by and check out the blazing funkster called “Stop!,” a command you may have trouble obeying on the dance floor. Whew. Is there a fire extinguisher in the house?
