    Special Needs Parenting

    in Lifestyle

    Join me and my special guest Stephanie Collins, as we discuss her struggles as a parent with special needs children and how writing down about her experiences was not only therapeutic, but led her to write a book. "With Angels Wings", tells the  story of what she went through without romanticizing or glazing over the most difficult times. Her message is to tell the parents of special needs children that they are not alone, to give professionals working with these parents a perspective, and to give all others a glimpse into the world of special needs children.

    A Theory of Parenting - Ford Foundation

    in Travel

    Hello,


    Welcome to A Theory of Parenting on Blogtalkradio.com


    My name is Tammi Joyner


    I am your Host for the Show


    Today we are live from The Ford Foundation Atrium!


    location: 320 E 43rd St – Take any of the trains in Grand Central Station


    www.fordfoundation.org


    The building is a part of the public spaces open to the public!


    Inside the building, a lush tropical garden on the ground level forms the focal point of an enormous and sunlit 10-story glass atrium. Amazingly, keeping this garden watered doesn’t deplete city utilities; the building’s roof captures rainwater, and during dry periods, the garden is kept healthy with a stored water supply.


    Glancing up towards the roof, the greenery continues. Ferns and vines hang down from girders above, and small trees are visible from the top floors. The garden’s serene aura is aided by the fragrance of gardenias, and the sound of running water supplying a pool hidden amid the trees. The Ford Foundation was completed in 1967 and designated a national landmark in 1997.


     It’s open to the public on weekdays from 10 AM to 4 PM.

    A Theory of Parenting - Rockefeller Center

    in Current Events

    Hello,


    Welcome to A Theory of Parenting on Blogtalkradio.com


    My name is Tammi Joyner 


    I am your Host for the Show


    Today we are live from Rockefeller Center in NYc


    Throughout the year, the Rockefeller Center Channel Gardens blooms in uniquely themed plant installations that transform with the seasons. 


    Visit the Channel Gardens to see the April Showers installation on display from April 20 through May 31.


     


    Designed specifically for Rockefeller Plaza, Masks (Pentagon) consists of five masks ranging in height from 14.5 to 16.5 feet, each of which reflects a different approach to the stylized representation of the human face, from the clearly recognizable to the highly abstracted. 


    The five masks, which were cast from clay in industrial-strength synthetic plaster, stand on a stepped base made from massive beams of unfinished redwood. The back of each element of the sculpture reveals the artists method of construction – a grid-like armature of rebar inlaid with hemp and plaster.


    Rockefeller Center is home to a remarkable collection of art deco motifs and sculptures signifying man’s development in spirit, science, industry and more.

    We talk with Debbie Farson, Owner/Operator of HomeWise Referrals, a company that helps people find contractors to do home repairs and renovations.  Given the high numbers of adults with disabilities living with parents, who also may be aging and needing home modifications, the need for contractors who can renovate homes for our population is critical.   Learn how Ms. Farson helps meet this need.  Also joining us will be Mark Friese, Vice President or Merrill Lynch Special Needs Planning Group to discuss the financial side of housing, and how to plan for good financial decisions for your loved ones with special needs.

    we are live from the 805 Third Avenue (49th and 50th Street) - The Crystal Pavilion


    www.untappedcities.com says:  This tri-leveled lunch hotspot is best accessed at the street level via a wide, right-angled circulation corridor, which also connects the Third Avenue and East 50th Street entrances. The concourse level, reached by escalator near the Third Avenue entrance has the most amount of tables and services, and is the spot where during mid-day, when the sun comes bursting through the windows, one can look up and literally be dazzled by the space’s volume and design.
