    Save The Puppies

    in Motivation

    Did you know only 1 in 10 dogs have a permanent home? Everday hundreds of dogs are being abandoned, abused, or killed. This is the time to act. 


    Are animals any less than us? I guess that is an argument you have to decide for yourself, but for me, I believe in animal equality. 


    So, what can we do to save the puppies? Adopt, volunteer at animal shelters, or donate items to people fostering and adopting many dogs. 


    Lets be those dogs voices and #savethepuppies

    Interview with Rebecca Woodworth Brodie

    in Goals

     I became involved working with inmates quite by accident. One day, a colleague asked me to meet with a woman incarcerated at MCI Framingham. I was really scared to go inside a prison but, in the end, it was not at all like I expected. The inmates were all dressed in sweat suits and bright white Keds style sneakers. The visiting room was open and bright and there was a play section with toys off to one side. Some of the inmates walked puppies on leashes. I felt more like I was in a college dorm than in a prison.


    When I met with the client, she was pleasant and polite. She didn’t proclaim innocence or make excuses. She fully accepted her situation and understood she had made poor choices. She was about my age. She was a mom, She had been involved with bad guys. Her life had been a lot like mine. Meeting this client changed my life and made me realize how, if not for a few different choices, she and I could be on opposite sides of the visitation table.


    Since that day, I began doing more work with inmates and working to change the outcome of those incarcerated. Eventually, my work with inmates led me to pursue a Master’s degree in criminal justice. I studied recidivism, prison programs, and the epidemic of suicides in prisons; of both inmates and correctional officers. I finished my MA from UMass Lowell in 2014.


    Since finishing my degree in criminal justice, I have been working toward prison reform. My goal is to overhaul the entire Massachusetts correctional system; making the system better for inmates, officers, communities as well as all the other stakeholders in the system. In my spare time, I am working toward a Master’s Degree in the Public Policy department from the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth – and running for Sheriff of Middlesex County (the first woman ever to even run for this office)

    Euphoric Rock Tribute: Heather Shallowpoint Guest Along with her Bands Music

    in Rock Music

    Shallowpoint is a 4 piece rock/metal band based out of Knoxville,TN. Shallowpoint was formed and began playing original music around 2008. With 2 original members that are still with the band today. Heather(bass) and Chuck (guitar/vocals) The band has recently added Heath Devine (guitar/vocals) and Jason Drake has rejoined the group on drums. Shallowpoint’s sound is distinct so it’s no surprise that each member’s influences vary. Their EP Shallowpoint was released in 2011 and was a pillar of what rock music in their area should be.  


    Their songs range from the dark and slow metal tune “Broken Life”, to a more commercial sounding rock song “Complicate”. The band has released 2 videos, each of which I can call nothing short of masterpieces, self-inflicted and Nothing Left(Both of which can be found on youtube) (and both videos were produced entirely by the band itself) They have been in the studio with grammy nominated and dove award winning producer Travis Wyrick(P.O.D, Pillar and 10 years). They will release 4 all new songs to add to the 5 already recorded for a full length album to be called "infringement".This album is scheduled to be released January 2015.  This will surely raise their popularity level to, national spotlight.



    The band has already shared the stage with music heavy hitters such as    “Hell Yeah”  “Otep”     "Sick Puppies"  "One Eyed Doll" and “Psychostick”.
