    Avoiding Skiing and Snowboarding Injuries

    in Health

    February 6, 2014: Over the next few weeks, the world will turn their attention to the elite athletes from around the world at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. We will witness them accomplish unimaginative feats, and we will also marvel at their ability to do so. But for all the ways that Olympic athletes are beyond imagination, in at least one way they are very much like the rest of us: they fall down.


    In this episode of Move Forward Radio, physical therapist Amber Donaldson, PT, DPT, SCS, CSCS, of the United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, will discuss the vigorous training of Olympic athletes, and provide tips on how to best avoid injuries while skiing and snowboarding.

    The Swiss Alps in Engelberg

    in Travel

    With winter here in full force, it’s time to hit the slopes at the top of the Swiss Alps as Travel Brigade visits the town of Engelberg, Switzerland, and heads 10,000 feet up to the top of Mount Titlis on the 360-degree-rotating Rotair tram. The mountain is so high there is a glacier on top year-round and we’ll tell you how you can walk through an ice cave and take the “Cliff Walk” suspension bridge that offers incredible views across the top of the Alps. We’ll talk about amazing skiing in the winter as well as great year round activities on the mountain. You’ll also get a taste of the classic Swiss experience of walking through a mountain meadow while listening to the cow bells ringing on your way to a traditional swiss meal of Alplermagronen. In the charming village of Engelberg at the base of the mountain, we’ll visit a Show Cheese factory and take a horse carriage ride to a centuries old monastery. Enjoy the trip!

    Incubi Incarnate Broadcast with David M. Rountree and Robbie Lunt - 11/19/2014

    in Paranormal

    Tonight your host Bill Bachman interviews David M. Rountree and Robbi Lunt, co-authors of 'Demon Street USA'. David began his research into the paranormal professionally in 1976, and has investigated cases scientifically from Rhode Island to Key West, Florida. David has experimented with both scientific as well as metaphysical techniques in his study of unexplained occurrences. Over the course of his research he was able to confirm EVP was not related to sound by the use of a Bell Jar, a vacuum pump, a Shure dynamic microphone and a TEAC A-4010S Reel to Reel recorder. Due to several encounters of a very negative nature from 1985-87, he made the decision to concentrate on the scientific research concerning the phenomena, and not the metaphysical aspects of the events. In 1992 David formed a new organization, Scientific Paranormal Investigative Research Information and Technology (S.P.I.R.I.T.), and began a long and painstaking process of collecting, building and focusing a battery of hi-tech instrumentation to concentrate on laboratory and field experimentation to search for the cause of paranormal phenomena. By 1998 his focus of research had narrowed to phenomena specific to “Hauntings”.  Robbie is an Arcanologist, Certified Entertainment Electrician and Certified Technology Specialist currently residing in Washoe Valley, NV. He is a proud member of The Way of Nature fellowship. He has had over 20 years of doing energy work in both Tai Chi and Reiki. When he’s not doing research or haunting a theatre, if you search hard enough, you might find him kayaking or skiing in the Sierra Nevadas.

    Skiing Without the Fear

    in Blogs

    You can ski without freaking out.  Especially, all you women who ski like ironing boards and even the men.  It's time to make peace with your fears on the slopes; the painful boots, the cold, the double diamonds, the not perfect trails, the kids, the husbands, and anything else that you're making into a negative experience. 
    I'll use some simple energy techniques that really work.  Techniques you can put in your pocket the next time you go out to ski.
    My name is Lillian Fimbres and I talk about anything I feel can benefit you and stuff that seems to just benefit me.

    Ever notice, the day before our LIVES change forever, feels like an ordinary day? In the NFL, it has been said, "You only get drafted once in your life.", kind of like the military too.

No matter what we do, there are two kinds of peole in this World, Those of us with Brain Injuries and those who haven't gotten them yet. You could be drafted next...(or again) Driving down the road, riding your bicycle, hiking, skiing, skating, or any one of a thousand different things Mankind has adopted into society. ARE YOU PREPARED TO BE DRAFTED?

    We can not change the fact we've acquired a Brain Injury, but tonight on WTF?, Kevin & the Marvelous Maggie will share a new perspective on how you can start creating a FUNctional LIFE again and have FUN doing it. If not, WTF?

    Tune in this week to add another perspective to your daily repertoire.  If there is something in particular you would like to hear Kevin discuss, join us on Fridays and share in the chat room with the "Marvelous Maggie" (Kevin's 24/7 Partner and Professional Care Assistant)

    Who is ready to take a cruise with Ebony on the love boat?

    in Romance

    Tonight we are talking about Cruising for love in 2015. Where should we go together to find love? What is the best month to take the trip? Who wants to take the trip? What events should be included in the schedule? How do we start to plan our getaway? I seriously need a holiday with my Global Dating Crew, who wants to join me?


    On a cruise you don't have to stay on the ship. You can go rock-climbing, zip-lining, bowling, roller-blading, simulated surfing, ice skating, goofy golf, video games, first-run movies, wine tastings, live Broadway shows, live music, disco dancing and more. Once you get to ports of call you can add in SCUBA, snorkeling, water skiing, horseback riding, hiking and of course sightseeing and shopping.


    A cruise is also a great time to chill out and it also offers plenty of relaxation time in your private stateroom, with a balcony in most cases, to read, watch movies and take a long bath and nap. You can also get spa treatments, work out in the fitness centers, read in the library, take classes in cooking, lifestyle, arts, computer tips, music, languages and more. If you are a party person there are parties almost every night with a variety of music from different genres.On a cruise you may even find the Man or Woman of your dreams....Whatever the outcome we will have an amazing experience!!! 


    Get ready to have a conversation about cruises and events in 2015. 


    Who wants to get on Ebony's Love Boat? Let's talk about it!!

    She received her Bachelor of Science and Masters Degree in Nursing from the University of Washington.


    Over  the past 50 years Dee has interacted with over 3000 amputees through her job at a Trauma Center, sports (skiing & soccer), mission work (Sierra Leone, W. Africa), and prosthetic research.


    Dee is married to Jim Malchow, and lives in Shoreline, Washington. They have two grown married children who have provided them with eight delightful grandchildren.
