    in Entertainment

    Date rape is a very common and very serious concern across college campuses everywhere. Four undergrad students have recently developed a date rape drug detecting nail polish called Undercover Colors. How will this change things across college campuses? Are female students willing to put their French manicures and array of Essie nail polish colors aside to take advantage of this new discovery? Temple University's Wellness Resource Center Program Coordinator for Alcohol and Other Drugs, Interpersonal Violence, and Mental Health, Kate Schaeffer will join me to discuss date rape on college campuses and how this new nail polish might impact the social scene.

    Greg Archer, journalist and author of "Grace Revealed" March 26th, 9PM EST

    in Books

    Seventy-five years after Joseph Stalin's reign of terror across Eastern Europe, entertainment journalist Greg Archer takes a step back from Hollywood and examines his Polish family's mind-bending odyssey of the 1940s. In the process, he exposes one of the most under-reported events of the 20th Century: Stalin's mass deportation of nearly two million Polish citizens to the Siberian gulags and the life-shattering events that followed. The book, Grace Revealed, takes you on that journey.


    But the author's quest takes a dramatic turn. As he walks an emotional tightrope between the past and the present, can a serendipitous global adventure become a saving grace, heal the ancestral soul and bring justice to his family and their forgotten Polish comrades?


    Greg Archer is an award-winning journalist, editor, cultural moderator and author. His journalism and man-on-the-street coverage of agents of change, arts, culture, travel and the entertainment industry appear regularly in The Huffington Post, San Francisco Examiner, Jetset Extra and on his popular YouTube portal. He has been a contributor to Oprah Magazine, The Advocate, VIA Magazine, Palm Springs Life, Bust, Prevention, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Monterey Herald and other publications.


    The book trailer for Grace Revealed is at the link below:

    Choosing our Next President - Are you the Right Person

    in Self Help

    I am very concerned about the future of this country.  We need to be participants and not nay sayers.  Our next President has a lot of problems to face and will need all the support of this country behind him or her.


    We elected a Prsident who was a former actor and divorced and made one hell of a President.  Don't look at our candidates as whether they are accomplished politicians more as if they would be good CEO's.  We need a good CEO for the US so that he will make a statement to the rest of the world and be a good steward of our economy.  He/She needs to be the best of the best and restore the polish and stature to the rest of the world.


    I am open to hearing suggestions of who would make a good President - let's get out of our own way and do what's best for this country - it can be a really thankless job but we need someone with character and fortitude.


    Are you up for the job?
