    P.I.D. Radio 1/17/15: The Moon is a Planet

    in Paranormal

    THE TITLE of this week’s show is a reference to a wonderful exchange between a clothing designer and a host on the QVC shopping channel about whether the Moon is a planet or a star. Of course, it’s neither, but it led to a discussion of a panic 60 years ago when the U.S. government frantically searched for two “natural” satellites that appeared on radar, orbiting the equator at 400 miles and 600 miles above the Earth.


    We believe the UFO phenomenon is real, but it’s not what UFO true believers think it is.


    Also: Elon Musk plans global satellite broadband; John Kerry brings James Taylor to France; Project Gladio; more American soldiers (and weapons) for Iraq; Russia uses Gazprom to threaten Ukraine and EU, while moving to absorb South Ossetia from Georgia; Thailand recognizes third gender in its new constitution; U.S. Supreme Court to rule on homosexual marriage; George Soros finances Ferguson protests; and ISIS continues to gain territory despite hundreds of Western air strikes.


    Please join us Sunday mornings at 10:30 AM Central Time (UTC -6) for the Gilbert House Fellowship at www.GilbertHouse.org, a virtual gathering to study the scriptures in chronological order. And check out the website for our forthcoming book on transhumanism, Rise of the Cybergods.

    “Your Best Friend!” (YBF)


    Stacey Schieffelin, Ford model and makeup guru, successful entrepreneur and true believer in empowering women to live the life they dream, is as approachable as the girl next door. Stacey shares her knowledge about how to look and feel your beYOUtiful best every day. For Stacey, putting your best and fabYOUlous face forward is a sign of self-respect, not vanity. She believes every woman deserves to have her own customized and personalized blueprint that maps out her unique path to bold beYOUty and self-confidence. Stacey founded Models Prefer 18 years ago; an international cosmetics company that has been sold on HSN in the U.S., QVC in the U.S., U.K. and Germany. The MP brand remained the #1 color cosmetics line on QVC in the UK for more than eight years. 


    Beauty is a natural extension of Stacey’s fun, engaged relationship with her customers (girlfriends); best demonstrated through her Pajama’ Party at Sea Cruises. “I started out talking to women one-on-one about what makes them beYOUtiful; first on HSN and QVC, and then in our unique Pajama’ Parties at Sea, traveling the world on a cruise ship devoted to fun, beauty and empowerment. Women embraced the ideas, products and friendships we were sharing. The phrase “best friend” was voiced over and over as they described their feelings about the products and being part of our community. Without question, the perfect name for our new brand “your best friend” (ybf) came from our girlfriends!” 



    Stacey is on the board of directors of Fashion Group International, Count Me In and is an active member of Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors (ICMAD), Miss America’s Outstanding Teen, Girls, Inc., American Heart Association and the American Cancer Society.
