    Ricki Stevenson has served as creative thinker, lead guide and CEO of Black Paris Tours since its inception in 1998. Stevenson, a native of Oakland, California, is a former New York and Bay Area TV/Radio news anchor/reporter and talk show host.  Ricki holds the distinction of having worked as a United Nations radio correspondent and as one of the first Black international travel reporters. She holds a master's degree in education and history from Stanford University, with an emphasis on African and African American history. Stevenson says her dream of living in Paris began when her Mother, a former dancer, took her to see Josephine Baker perform when she was three years old.  Over the years, her dream was fueled by interviews with some of the famous who fled racism in the US to live or spend time in Paris: Ray Charles, Earth Kitt, artist Lois Mailou Jones and choreographer, Geoffrey Holder. The idea for Black Paris Tours grew out of that dream and her six years work as an international travel reporter.

    Dr.George Stewart is an Adult, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist who has worked with traumatized foster youth for 30+ years. A graduate of Harvard College and Columbia Medical School, he initially completed his training in Family Medicine at the University of Washington and at UCSF. He then worked as a Family Physician for several years in an impoverished barrio near San Jose, California. He returned to complete his training in Adult and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at UC Davis.


    Working with Seneca Family of Agencies, a large non-profit providing a variety of mental health services to youth and their families, in various treatment settings in Northern California, he was able to observe repeatedly the overuse of medications with traumatized youth who had behavior problems.  He spent much more time tapering youth off of medications than he did prescribing them.


    He is extremely pleased that the Mercury News' Series on "Medicating Our Youth" is attracting a lot of attention to a long-neglected population. 


     D'Anthony was born in 1995 in Oakland, California  and is a foster home youth and will share with us his experiences in foster care. He likes making beats and his favorite producer is DJ Mustard. D'Anthony says he "enjoys breathing and waking up every day and  thinking God he's alive."

    Guests: Investigative Reporter Karen de SA, and Dr. George Stewart Psychiatrist.


    For the past four months, the Bay Area News Group has been documenting the alarming use of psychiatric medications in California's foster care system -- and the impact on thousands of vulnerable kids who suffer the consequences.


    Here, in Part 5 of our investigative series "Drugging Our Kids," we present a documentary video that gives voice to many of these young people, who say they were silenced during their youth by the powerful drugs.


    From Los Angeles to the Bay Area to Humboldt County, reporter Karen de Sá and photographer Dai Sugano interviewed more than 175 people, including dozens of current and former foster youth who were frequently moved and heavily medicated by a system that struggled to manage their complicated childhoods.


    Now, there's a growing call for change among former foster youth, psychiatrists, public health nurses and youth advocates. The stories of lost childhoods and remarkable resilience provide compelling lessons on how California can better address their trauma and stop "Drugging Our Kids."

    FBI investigating Twitter airline threats with Gregory Evans

    in Technology

    ATLANTA -- The FBI is actively trying to find those responsible for recent online airline bomb threats.


    On Saturday, two planes were escorted to the airport by NORAD jets to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport after someone made threats on Twitter.


    Both planes were searched and no explosives were found.


    The FBI tells said it's up to the airlines to determine if a threat is credible, whether It comes from social media or elsewhere. In Saturday's case, both bomb threats were deemed credible and that's why the FBI was called in to investigate.


    Cyber attack expert Gregory Evans believes the FBI knows who is behind KingZortic, the username responsible for the threats.


    "Right now we are focusing on who it was, where it was and how we can best lay hands on them," said FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett.


    The FBI says the person responsible for the threats could face serious federal charges, such as conspiracy to destroy an aircraft.


    "I have the utmost confidence in our investigators, that work these problems," Evans said. "They are very good at it, and they have a lot of tools needed for this investigation."


    Airline officials said whether the threats are a hoax or real, whoever did it should be held responsible.
