David Cobb was born in San Leon, Texas. After working as a crewman on a Gulf Coast shrimp boat, a construction worker and a waiter, David Cobb graduated from the University of Houston Law School in 1993. After several years in private practice as a Houston, Texas attorney, he became engaged in politics. During the 1980s, he campaigned for the Democratic presidential candidacies of Jesse Jackson and Jerry Brown. Those experiences left him disenchanted with and disaffected from the Democratic Party. Consequently, he turned his activism to broad issues of democracy and corporations, joining with citizens' groups in lectures, seminars, and workshops throughout the U.S. He sought to promote his view that corporations became unelected governing institutions, which should be overthrown by means of a nonviolent democratic revolution.
In 2000, David Cobb answered the call of Green Presidential candidate Ralph Nader to organize Nader's Texas campaign. He coordinated a successful ballot access drive in the state. Concurrently, Cobb became Green Party of the United States General Counsel.
In 2002, David Cobb ran for Texas Attorney General on the Green ticket and used his candidacy to "barnstorm" Texas localities with little Green representation. His election bid was unsuccessful, winning just 0.92% of the vote. The Green Party of Texas lost its ballot access, which remained out of reach until 2010. The next year, a Green committee tagged him as a possible presidential candidate, which challenge he accepted. [Wikipedia]

The Black Russian with Vladimir Alexandrov
Bernice Bennett host welcomes Vladimir Alexandrov, Ph.D., for an engaging discussion of his book, The Black Russian. He will explore the process of researching and writing this compelling story.
The Black Russian tells the story of Frederick Bruce Thomas, who was born in 1872 to former slaves and spent his youth on his family’s farm in Mississippi. After leaving the South and working as a waiter and valet in Chicago and Brooklyn, he went to London in 1894, then traveled throughout Europe, and decided to go to Russia in 1899, all of which was highly unusual for a black American at the time. He chose Moscow as his home, and during the next nineteen years renamed himself “Fyodor Fyodorovich Tomas,” married twice, acquired a mistress, took Russian citizenship, and by dint of his talents, hard work, charm, and guile became one of the city’s richest and most famous owners of variety theaters and restaurants. The Bolshevik Revolution ruined him and he barely escaped with his life and family to Turkey in 1919. Starting with just a handful of dollars out of the millions he had lost, Thomas made a second fortune in Constantinople by opening a series of celebrated nightclubs that introduced jazz to Turkey. However, because of the long arm of American racism, the xenophobia of the new Turkish Republic, and his own extravagance, he fell on hard times, was thrown into debtor's prison and died in Constantinople in 1928.
Dr. Alexandrov is the B. E. Bensinger Professor of Slavic Languages and Literatures and Acting Chair, Slavic Department at Yale University. www.valexandrov.com

Edmond G. Coisson (director) is founder of the Naperville Independent Film Festival (NIFF). NIFF is now qualifying to be one of the 64 festivals recognized by the Academy Awards. After stepping away from directing for the past several years to create NIFF, he is excited to get back into the directing chair and create a thrilling movie ride that keeps you guessing. Edmond’s production company, Our Path Productions, was created in 1994 to develop a series of character driven films. Precious Mettle is the first of these and is a story about second chances and the personal journey we must all walk in life. Edmond was born in Torre Pellice, Italy, and became fascinated by a TV drama at the age of 7. He went to the only theater in town, every Sunday after noon. Sometimes, watching the same film for weeks. As a teen, he had a few parts in local theater, where he was involved in summer plays. He wrote his first screenplay at age 17. He traveled all over Europe, working as a waiter, welder, carpenter, plasterer, and factory worker. Studied drafting and worked for Fiat; got a barbers license, and also did some bartending. He moved to Los Angeles, CA., in 1981. His passion for film, acting and writing never went away. After moving to Illinois in 1983, he became more active in films, but his heart was still in writing. He attended the Screenwriters Group of Chicago, and he and his wife, Glessna, went to the Screen Writers Awards in L.A. each year. After starting Our Path Productions they began making short stories, documentaries, and feature films. While entering a film festival on the internet, the comment was made that they should have their own film festival. A year later, that dream came true.

Learn the five key principals for selecting wine at corporate dinners or events: • Do you need to pay top dollar to get wine that tastes great? • How can you choose wine that will go with everything that your guests are ordering? • How do you ask for help from the waiter without losing face in front of your client?

Who is placing your order at the Cosmic Cafe? If you're not getting the moentary success, loving relationship, career, or your dreams; then your waiter may be, Pluto or Karma!
We ask the Universe for specifics, only to manifest a tiny piece of our desires. We end up disappointed & wonder why this keeps happening. Why can't we get exactly what we know we want? Michele explains that when we make a request, we'll feel an energy rise inside of us which says, "I'm not really going to get this" or "I know I'll get something, but it won't be what I've asked for."
Where does this energy come from & why can't we control it? In this episode, Michele will link the dots from the subconscious mind, to karma, karmic agreements & Pluto. She explains how we can tackle our subconscious, end karmic repetition, & release the blocks that stop us from getting what we want. Listen to this podcast to find out!

Today, we're sitting in another place both physically as well as spiritually. A place "in time" that was declared by Yah before time began. It has been said "Time serves Eternity and Time is only the out-working of Eternal purpose!" Like a waiter in a fine upscale restaurant so does Time serve the Father's eternal purpose. Ah the menu of life. The last time I recorded was from a room I've spent time in over the past 2 years studying, recording and presenting powerful truths. The place on the south side of Dallas is ebonically known as "the hood." I thank Yah for it because that place taught me so much. I saw ME like never before. I wonder what or who you would see IF Father required you to go to a country, city, church or home that was not shall we say..."up to your standards?" I'm just wondering...IF Father would command you like He commanded Ezekiel to lay on one side of his body for a whole year...could you?

How long have you been tettering back and forth..wondering whether you should you jump or not? I've got good news for you...IT AIN'T THAT BAD..so get off that ledge and climb back into the window of life. Help has arrived. This episode "Whose line is it anyway? An improvosational comedy tv first show aired in 1988. IF you're tired of arguing, complaining, fighting or being made a fool of, I pray you'll stop ACTING OUT what you hear and serious take a look at what, why and when you do what you do. I want you to consider seriously WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY?
