    Tyson Rininger - Aviation Photographer: What sets you Apart in Your Business?

    in Entrepreneur

    Tyson V. Rininger began exploring aviation photography in 1989 at the NAS Point Mugu Airshow. Lacking the knowledge of marketing and creativity, he chose the business name, TVR Photography. As an unestablished fifteen year-old photographer, Tyson worked at local camera stores for the next 13 years while building a portfolio and networking with publications and image houses along with assisting more established photographers for a better understanding of the field.

    In 2001 Tyson became a full-time photographer working with George Hall & Check-6, as well as Zenith Press’ Air Superiority line of calendars and eventually two books, “Red Flag: Air Combat for the 21st Century” and “F-15 Eagle at War”. He went on to work for numerous publications including Air & Space Smithsonian, Aviation Week & Space Technology, Combat Aircraft, PrivateAir, PilotMag and many others.

    In 2009, his career became focused on all aspects of air shows when he spent a year as a wing walker with American Barnstormers. Over the next couple of years he captured an image that would become the icon of the 100th Anniversary of Naval Aviation and became the first and only civilian photographer to provide the USN Blue Angels with their annual lithograph.  www.tvrphotography.com

    Who's in Charge with Richard P Jackson

    in Education

    Monday, November 3, 2014 8:00 PM ET


    Mike will be welcoming a very special guest, Richard P Jackson, the internationally acclaimed interfaith Minister, counselor, healer, and extraordinarily gifted psychic.


    Richard’s extraordinary gifts have been the subject of numerous books, as well as the subject of documentaries on the Discovery and History channels.  Richard P Jackson also has been a featured guest or contributing expert on paranormal and spiritual matters for magazines, newspapers and major news organizations such as Fox News, CNN, NBC, as well as numerous appearances on internationally broadcasted radio programs like the “X-zone,” and “Coast to Coast AM.”


    His documented talents, which are beyond scientific explanation, have been called upon by such institutions as law enforcement, Lloyd’s of London, and Smithsonian Museum affiliates, and even organ transplant facilities, for a range of services from assisting in investigations, to de-haunting corporate offices and famous battlefields.  In his capacity as an interfaith minister, he has been called upon by leaders of every major religion from Protestant, to Catholic, Jewish, and Muslim faiths, and has personally assisted such notables as:  The Most Reverend Father Malachi Martin, and the Most Reverend Bishop McKenna, with some of their most difficult cases of demonic possession requiring exorcism.  Richard’s New Years’ predictions for the last 5 years have been proven to be more accurate than any other psychic or futurist when the record shows he predicted such major world events as the Arab Spring, and even the Earthquakes in Haiti, and Japan.

    Anti-Poaching Tracking~~Rory Young

    in Training

    Rory Young is the co-author of "A Field Manual for Anti Poaching Activities". He has also been published by Newsweek, Forbes, The Huffington Post, Slate and many others, and was awarded the title “Top Writer 2013” by the online knowledge market Quora for his writings on African wildlife and conservation. He has also been interviewed and quoted by Smithsonian Magazine, Huffington Post, Yahoo News and many other publications about the current poaching crisis and what needs to be done to reign it in.
    He originally trained as a Professional Guide and Professional Hunter (via problem animal control in community wildlife areas in Zimbabwe and Zambia), in the early 90’s. This was achieved under the then rigorous licensing system of the Zimbabwean Department of National Parks and Wildlife Management. He has now spent 25 years working in the related fields of conservation, wildlife management, forestry and safaris. Multi-lingual, this has enabled him to cross the divide between Anglophone and Francophone countries, to gain a uniquely broad perspective of the continent and its conservation challenges and potential solutions.
    An expert tracker, he has developed and researched the skills since childhood. He has successfully combined traditional tracking methods with modern forensics and military tactical tracking, to develop highly effective methods of locating poachers. He has been invited to advise and teach advanced tracking and other field skills to wildlife protection, law-enforcement and military special operations personnel in many African and Western countries.


    Realizing wildlife protection needs to be tailor made, ha has worked in partnership and consulted with experts, gaining a wide base of knowledge and skills including investigations, surveillance and apprehension.
