    Breastfeeding Advocacy anytime, any place?

    in Women

    Why do we have so much contraversy around Breastfeeding?  One of the reasons is the way women's bosies have been objectified and subjectified.  Showing women's nipples in public has such shame attached to it - as Janet Jackson found out at the Super bowl when her nipple slipped out of her top.  Women are covering their babies in a quest to cover themselves while breastfeeding in public - almost seems like a step backwards in liberating ourselves.  Advocacy plays an important role in liberating us from taboos that no longer serve us.  Today we talk breastfeeding & advocacy with Derek Forgie, a Canadian comedian and active advocate for breastfeeding and a whole lot more!  He posted a very passionate rant entitled "Superbowl vs My Wifes Breasts" that went viral.  You will hear it here but it's a must to watch https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10153051548929836

    Choose your weapon: Social Advocacy vs Economic Empowerment

    in Lifestyle

    On this episode of Life Full Circle Radio, we will discuss the overall methods of change. Is it best to use social advocacy, economic empowerment or both.


    We've have just came out of Black History Month and the commmeration of #Selma50. At the same time we have the issues of the #SAE racist rants, another #Ferguson shooting and The killing of #TonyRobinson in Madison, WI. Our country seems to be a powder keg right now, with a short fuse. All this is going on while our economy is rebounding. Most of America is simply watching this unrest like a movie on TV, instead of it being many peoples lives.


    We will talk about this convergance of Social Advocacy and Economic Empowerment with Anthony Butler from the E3 Business Group.

    Milling About The Urban Wine Trail

    in Entertainment

    Milling About visits the Urban Wine Trail in Santa Barbara's Funk Zone. Our first stop is Cottonwood Canyon (www.cottonwoodcanyon.com) hosted by Randy. Known for their Pinot Noir, it's the first winery in Santa Barbara county to be put in caves; 6,000 square feet to keep the temperature and humidity constant for fine wines. They also have a European style 2001 Pinot with hints of earthy peat moss, mushroom truffle, caramel smoke and then the berries (in that order). Randy says their 'slap upside the head' perfect prime rib Syrah has red licorice and plum flavors. And their dessert Syrah comes with instructions to go perfectly with chocolate.


    Our next stop is the Santa Barbara Winery (www.sbwinery.com) hosted by Shai. It's the oldest winery in the Funk Zone. Their white wine is produced on the premises and their reds are done at Lafond vineyards in the Santa Rita hills. Their Pinot Gris has aromatics of granny smith apple and green pear; Shai recommends it as a cocktail wine. Their Reislings have different levels of sweetness to the amount of alcohol; the less sugar goes well with spicy thai and the sweeter wine is described as a cheesecake dessert.


    Our last stop is Riverbench Winery (www.riverbench.com) known for their sparkling wines; hosted by Cassie. Their Blanc de Blanc has notes of apple, kiwi and a toastiness that is attributed to an unfortunate fire but lends itself to a delicious smokey flavor. Check out their Valentine's Day mixer with a never before tasted Pinot and game night where you can taste wine and challenge yourself to Twister!
