As we continue our conversation on health we take a look at our emotional health. Our Day to day routines force us to deal with how we handle some of life’s many challenges, from how we build relationships, to how we recover from setbacks. Like our physical health, our mental and emotional health requires that we take the same amount of care. The loss of a family member can be very unsettling, especially when it is an untimely death. An unexpected death can shatter our world as we know it, and it is often a loss that does not make sense. But how do we cope, what are the steps that we take in order to “make our lives whole again?” Joining me for this conversation is Tara Jones, an author, motivational speaker, whose passion is empowering girls and women. Her current project, a booked entitled, “Sistahs Coping”, focuses on African American girls and women whose fathers have been murdered. The book opens the conversation to the therapeutic resources, as well as the first step to promote public awareness of the lasting emotional, economic, and social effects that are often overlooked amongst African American women due to the abrupt deaths of their fathers.
Join us as we discuss the upcoming book, and Tara shares some insight to the project, and the stories of “Sistahs Coping…”

Billy Conway, who played drums in my parents’ band, and the rock band Morphine, took me aside one night and asked me when I was going to start writing my own songs. I thought that was a pretty good question.” So Reed got to work, and in his late teens.After a move to Colorado, Reed’s clear tenor, emotional songwriting, and undeniable charisma as a front man launched Acoustic Junction in 1989, which developed a cult following in the jam- band era of the 90s. The band released six albums, a collaboration with Graham Nash, and was signed to Capricorn Records and later Mercury Records. Reed found a new kind of success in short trips once or twice a year to Los Angeles, New York and Nashville that earned him placements on the silver screen, television, and commercials. Heput what money he could from the royalties to make three solo records: Spark (2004), Stoned Beautiful (2007), and Once an Ocean (2009) Country legend Lee Ann Womack’s September 2014 release leads with his song “Fly.”Lost in the West is a soundtrack for the invisible cinema of the mind. It features seven songs combining Reed’s powerful lyrics and vocal performance set against wide-open landscapes painted with Stratocaster and Wurlitzer. A deeply talented and accomplished cast joins Reed as producers, performers, and co-writers on this record. John also delivers a masterful performance on percussion, and Jefferson’s varied guitar work shines throughout the record. Anaïs Mitchel sings on “Rags and Bones” and “Four Lanes.” Frazey Ford appears on “Caroline” and “Steal Away.” Reed co-wrote “Caroline” with Esmé Patterson, founding member of Paper Bird, and he teamed with Gregory Alan Isakov to write “Rodeo Clown.”The choices Reed has made earned him the respect of his industry peers on one hand, and his loved-ones on the other.

Tara Reed is the accidental writer from Toronto, Canada, not that chick from Sharknado. When her career in Public Relations was forced into hiatus by a jerky plot twist, she wrote the first in a series of interactive novels. When she received offers of single-and-multi book deals from top houses, she turned them down to publish it herself. Because she’s crazy.
She was voted Most Sarcastic Female at her high school prom, which she went to alone. (Not that she thinks about it.) She can fit her whole fist in her mouth (which makes the prom thing surprising), and sing with her mouth closed, but she can’t do both at the same time.
Her tweets on The Bachelor have been aired in a live broadcast and picked up by national media. She once appeared on the cover of a romance novel with her long time partner, who has done 79 more covers – with other women. She thinks that’s qualification enough to write this book.

Our Western governments are perhaps the best on this earth, yet we the people do not always get the whole story. Over time, theorists have had to play connect-the-dots about everything from Area 51 to the smoke on the grassy knoll. And while old school conspiracy theorists are still pictured as spinning tales of evil, there are those credible individuals who come upon clear facts and spell them out to let the facts speak for themselves.
If two people know something, it’s not a secret anymore. If two or more people plan something that is wrong or plan to hide something that went wrong, it’s a conspiracy. For better or worse, in this new world of high tech, there are no secrets. Just about all there is to know is but thinly covered with apathy, diversion and PR. W. Craig Reed is a best-selling author and a tech business executive. His new book - Cold war III, is a non-fiction work that reads like a novel; but there may not ne a Hollywood ending.
The documented facts are set in the present, and while the end of the story has several possible endings, few of them are good; and none of them are far off. This story, like so much of history, is about money and power. The endgame will determine whether or not we the people will have any of either when the smoke clears and mirrors come down. When you pull cash or a card from your wallet, the term Petro-Dollar does not come to mind. Perhaps it should, because if we lose this round of paper warfare with Russia and China, the word will be Petro-Ruble, and our cozy world of the US Dollars as a currency standard will come to a screeching halt.
