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.”

Autism is used to describe someone who lives in a world of his/her own. In medical terms, autism is a brain-based developmental disorder that affects a person’s ability to communicate, be with other people, and engage in developmentally appropriate behaviours. Children do not “outgrow” autism but symptoms may lessen or change as the child develops and receives educational interventions.
WAFAC has developed several programs that will be explained during our interview, including: Social Skill Education; Life Skill Education;
Recreational Programs; Connections Parent Support Groups; Special Interest Program expansions Family Gatherings; Autism Awareness presentations in the community. Mariame will talk about their After_School/Respite program as well the construction of the "Multi-sensory Room"

Is it possible to Unite the Autism Community? Can Autistic and Aspie adults, teens and children respectfully come together with parents, educators, service professionals and nonprofit autism organizations to discuss challenges and work toward the common good?
If so, what would that look like? Who would be seated at the table? Who would facilitate the conversation?
How do we calm the chaos, reduce the infighting and begin to work together for a stronger, more united, autism community that focuses on acceptance, empowerment, optimal outcomes and positive life trajectories? How do we provide individuals and families with support, opportunity and connection?
Join Autism Empowerment Radio as Karen Krejcha discusses these challenges. Diagnosed with Asperger syndrome in her 40s, Karen is mom to two sons (8 and 15) also diagnosed on the autism spectrum. As Executive Director and co-founder of the nonprofit, Autism Empowerment, Karen regularly engages in conversation with autistic teens and adults as well as parents and other family members. She sees and hears the frustration from those on the spectrum who want to be respected and accepted and not seen as a burden upon society. She sees and hears from parents who want to do the best for their children but struggle navigating convoluted and conflicting systems of service that sometimes hurt more than they help.
Is it possible to strengthen the Autism Community? We think so!

Spare your G-D and yourself the drama and the lies and those you consider family and friends the deceptions and subterfuge of life's games played out on the field of ingnorance.
Spare yourself the self-hatred and self pity, the regrets and the woe is me mentality of looking at things. Use sparingly the "get out of jail" card for dealing with daily beat downs and arresting dilemmas eanc and every day.
Spare the rod and love the child that you are. You get punished enough by the natural consequences of life. Spare nothing by way of loving yourself, your G-D and each and every spirit being of the universe.
