Jennie Walker talks with Cassandra Kubinski on her music and some recent charity collaborations that are making headlines.
CASSANDRA (born Cassandra Eileen Kubinski in Hartford, CT) is a songwriter, singer, actress, producer, and yogi. Her latest release is her 4th album JUST BEING MYSELF (produced by Edd Kalehoff, the composer/producer behind the music of Monday Night Football, The View, Good Morning America, the YES Network , Disney, Carnival Cruise Lines, and artists like Faith Hill, Britney Spears, and Sarah Vaughn). “This one’s more cinematic than my previous albums, and more fun,” offers Cassandra. “Each song is like a mini-movie, and my writing is more honest than I’ve ever been before” And whether she’s writing about love, bittersweet memories, partying, air travel, or the Big Apple, that real-world honesty meets a dramatic, sensual swirl of cinematic images and metaphors influenced by her earliest musical experiences: Billy Joel and other songwriters, Disney movies, musical theatre, classical and jazz. Several music videos have already been released, including Just Being Myself, the classical/dance/pop anthem of being awesome, and Windblown Girl, a country-tinged romance story. The album also features pop/jazz trumpeter Chris Botti on the lush, Paris-inspired number “Je T’aime”, and a re-imagined version of Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance.”

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 1 in 68 children (or 14.7 per 1,000 eight-year-olds) in multiple communities in the United States has been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This new estimate is roughly 30 percent higher than previous estimates reported in 2012 of 1 in 88 children (11.3 per 1,000 eight year olds) being identified with an autism spectrum disorder. The number of children identified with ASD ranged from 1 in 175 children in Alabama to 1 in 45 children in New Jersey” (4/27/2014 press release).
Autism Speaks, a not for profit advocacy organization, devoted to understanding autism from all perspectives (research, treatment, effects on family) has made contributions to the understanding of ASD which greatly enhance the lives of those living with ASD, their families and communities.
Dr. Paul Wang, SVP Autism Speaks and head of medical research, will talk with us about the 2013 Top Ten Advances in Autism Research winners as identified by Autism Speaks.
It should be emphasized that the earlier a child is diagnosed with ASD and receives therapeutic services, his/her life chances for education, employment, and overall socialization dramatically increase.
Dr. Paul Wang joined Autism Speaks in September 2013 as the organization’s senior vice president and head of medical research.
Dr. Wang graduated from Harvard College with a bachelor of arts in biomedical sciences and received his medical degree from the Yale University School of Medicine. He completed a residency and chief residency in pediatrics at the University of Michigan, a research fellowship at the Salk Institute and a clinical fellowship at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).

Searching for happiness is that age old journey. I want to be happy. That is all that I ask. I only want my children to be happy. I want a happy marriage. The true solution to being happy is not what you think. As I may have shared, I am a businesswoman as well as a stepmom, mom, friend, sister, wife, etc., etc. As a businesswoman, I train salespeople. In my last round of classes, I was grateful to have the opportunity to teach from Shawn Achor's best selling book, The Happiness Advantage. In this show, I'll review some basic concepts and it will probably change the way you look at life.
As always, I thank you for listening and if you ever want to talk further, you can find me at:

Linda McDonald’s favorite quote is the excerpt from Maya Angelou's book, I Wouldn't Take Nothing For My Journey Now :“Each of us has the right and the responsibility to assess the roads which lie ahead, and those over which we have travelled, and if the future road looms ominous or unpromising, and the roads back uninviting, then we need to gather our resolve and carry only the necessary baggage, step off that road into another direction. If the new choice is also unpalatable, without embarrassment we must be ready to change that as well.” The Perfect Deceptionis Linda McDonald's first release.
