ENVISION THIS: Together we can stop Tarmaggedon!
Bill McKibben's speech on Tar Sands Oil production and the movements against it at Sebago Lake in Maine was rousing. We think you will find this recording of it inspiring. It was certainly well received amongst the kyakers, inner tubers, nature lovers as well as those belonging to 350 Maine.
Merry and Burl, your ENVISION THIS hosts, listened to Bill McKibben'a plea to block the transport of dirty, very thick tar sand oil through 60-year old pipes that go right by Sebago Lake and other pristine New England drinking and recreational waters..
Yes, amongst the pristine beauty of a lake where folks were floating about on inter-tubes and holding signs protesting tar sands oil, we were all in bliss. We can recreate Eden if we so choose. But, to do so, we must stop the cancerous growth of the corporations and banker. Say NO! to tar sands oil. Say "NO!" to corporate banks and corporte owned government and begin to say "NO! to the pollution of our lands, and, ultimately, our minds.
McKibben's speech, played here, will inspire you, too, to take action to save the atmosphere, waters, and life of our Mother Earth.

One touch may refresh your body, soothe your senses, and relieve weight of resting stress. I like to refer this episode to Matthew 9:21, and Matthew 14:36. When the natural, normal, and nurturing rhythm of the body is out-of-balance, that's a problem. A few years ago, I adventured my focus to return to college studying psychology. Truly, the academics of studying psychology is nothing but empowerment! However, during 1990 - 1999, I enjoyed administering foot massages without knowing anything about reflexology for the feet and hands being connected to the entire internal body. First, I gathered my pure essential oils, basin, foot soap, foot brush, toe nail file & clippers, heel scraper [I believe the feet should be clean & smooth rather with ugly or pretty feet] new thick white towel, and warmer for the oil. In addition, I always prepared the foot massage with a fresh glass of water, strawberries, and fresh peanuts. Repeatedly, the person would fall into a deep sleep. Furthermore, the same person shared with many friends of my technique, results, and how calming, refreshing, and renewing the massage to the whole body. Compliments were flowing like a lovely river. However, that person eventually got on my last nerve! If I should ever return to school again, it will be for the study of massage therapy. Thoroughly, I enjoy studying the science and biology of mental behavior. Let the opportunity arise - I will be in class with a deeper hunger for knowledge surrounding massage therapy. The art of massage therapy is my mission.
The NBA regular season is finally underway!!! It has been a tremendous opening week of action and there are certainly no shortage of storylines to discuss. Following a yearlong absence while recovering from a torn ACL, Derrick Rose made his long-awaited return to the hardwood as the Bulls hope to return to championship contention this season.
The H-and-H connection is off to a good start in H-Town as Dwight Howard and James Harden led the Rockets to a convincing opening night victory over the Charlotte Bobcats.
And how about Philadelphia 76ers rookie guard Michael Carter-Williams?! The Syracuse product nearly had a quadruple-double as he registered 22 points, 12 assists, nine steals, and seven rebounds in a 114-110 victory over the defending NBA champion Miami Heat.
Cause for concern in L.A.? Following a disappointing opening night performance agains the Los Angeles Lakers, could a lack of depth once again be the achilles heel for the Clippers in 2013-14?
Be sure to tune in as we discuss this and more on this week's edition of NBA Live Talk!
Beware of a lurking buzz-saw. There's really no better title for this edition of the Howitzer and Buzz-saw Show.
Whether it be team buzz-saw machines that can't be stopped or individual buzz-saws that once let loose can be a destructive force, there are many buzz-saws taking over the sports world these days.
Mike "the BUZZ-SAW" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo cover all the asininity. Another NBA season is here. Can anybody dethrone the Heat? Is Chicago really the best East team to beat Miami, or is maybe the squad they've had the most trouble with, Indiana, the true top contender? Are teams like the new look Nets or the Knicks true threats?
Out West, is it time for a team like Memphis or the Warriors to go from sexy pick to finally getting over the hump? Are the Clippers for real or are they overrated? And of course, never count out the Spurs. How much drama will arise in Laker Land this season and how good are the Rockets? On paper it seems Houston is built for success, but will they do it their first year together?
Respects are paid to one of sports revolutionary all-time buzz-saws, Allen Iverson. No, we're not talkin' 'bout practice! We're talking about a legend officially retiring.
The World Series closes its books with another Red Sox championship. Which team is built to return to the Fall Classic. And the guys go over all that has been the most asinine World Series ever.
In typical heel fashion, Mike defends a fellow buzz-saw. Is Dez Bryant receiving unjust criticism for his antics during Dallas' loss to Detroit. Why is there a double standard between receivers and quarterbacks, when yelling at teammates?
Beware a lurking buzz-saw, and beware the Howitzer and the Buzz-saw, as they conquer sports radio, one day, at a time....
