Today I will talk with Dr.Linda Olson about the devastating effects growing up in a family of domestic violence has on children.
"More than 1 in 7 adults in the United States, or 40 million people, lived with domestic violence as children. Worldwide, the number of people who currently are living with it is 275 million."

Update: “The Pacific Maritime Association, which represents terminal operators at West Coast ports, announced Wednesday it would be stopping all vessel loading and unloading operations on Thursday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday."
If the West Coast ports are shut down at a cost to the country of nearly $2 billion a day, what will happen to manufacturing and the economy? Will the president invoke the Taft-Hartley Act to force the sides back to work by declaring a national emergency?
For those who have been following the recent ISM reports, and stories on <a href=”http://mfgtalkradio.com">MFG Talk Radio ... read more</a>
Executives from 5 different leading industry associations discussed the crippling economic effects of the West Coast port situation today on Manufacturing Talk Radio, a live Internet broadcast to business and industry around the world. Peter Freidman, Executive Director of the Agriculture Transportation Coalition, Mark Hirzel, President of the Los Angeles Customs Brokers & Freight Forwarders Association, Jonathan Gold, Vice President for Supply Chain and Customs Policy at the National Retail Federation, Jason Brewer, Vice President of Communications & Advocacy for the Retail Industry Leaders Association, and Chad Moutray, Chief Economist for the National Association of Manufacturers all provided facts, figures and commentary on the direct and indirect impact of the protracted West Coast port labor negotiations between the Pacific Maritime Association and the International Longshoreman and Warehouse Union.
With no contract, will the ILWU walk off the job and strike? Will the PMA lock out the workers as they did in 2002? If the West Coast ports are shut down at a cost to the country of nearly $2 billion a day, which seems likely given the breakdown in contract negotiations, thousands of containers coming into the U.S. and thousands more head out stuff with our exports will sit idle at the docks. Will the president invoke the Taft-Hartley Act to force the sides back to work by declaring a national emergency? Tune in to Manufacturing Talk Radio and get the latest update on how a port strike could further cripple America’s manufacturing and potentially the whole economy for 2015.
For those who have been following the recent ISM reports, and stories on mfgtalkradio.com one of the recurring concerns of respondents in both the manufacturing and service sector has been the congestion at West Coast Ports – which handled 43.5% of containerized cargo in the U.S and where transiting cargo accounted for 12.5% of US GDP – as a result of reduced work output by the local unions who have been more focused in recent weeks on ongoing wage hike negotiations.
Join us this Tuesday, February 10th at 1PM EST with returning special guest Peter Friedmann: Executive Director, Agriculture Transportation Coalition, who plays a key role in developing U.S. and international ocean and waterborne transportation policy. Joining Peter will be Mark Hirzel, President, Los Angeles Customs Brokers and Freight Forwarders Association, Inc., Mark is the Customs Consultancy Manager for DHL Global Logistics, responsible for DHLs professional consulting services team in the United States. Mark consults with DHL’s largest clients on developing internal audits and programs, to insure compliance with import and export laws and regulations.
Today, everyone is equal. Women have the same rights as men and are able to do what they please. It’s understandable that women have a hard time working on a construction site but why is it so hard for them to succeed in fields like business/politics? This happens because these “systems” have been built on the male mind.
In order for women to become successful and independent and to have high power jobs in business and politics they need to become, at least in the way they think, men. As hard as this may seem, many women manage to achieve this goal.
Because these women have tried so hard to fit into these male dominated fields, they have essentially lost their feminine side. This is fantastic for their careers but devastating for their love lives. No man will ever want to marry another man; he wants to marry a woman that has the qualities of a woman. Even if these qualities didn’t mean much to the average guy, he could still not handle the fact that his girlfriend/wife is more successful than him or makes more money.
Unfortunately, this is the major love-life struggle that smart, successful and independent women face today.
In November, Barack Obama signed an Executive Order which essentially signified amnesty to upwards of 5 million illegal immigrants; a move pretty much, was of no surprise.
But, this month, U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hannon issued an injunction, staying the Order, where he agreed that 26 states who filed the suit, could suffer a financial burden.
As expected, the Obama Administration appealed.
In a statement read before the House, in its Department of Homeland Security (DHS) hearings, Jamiel Shaw, gave a powerful testimony which covered two bases; the devastating impact of an out of control immigration policy and the sincerity of those who've furthered the mantra, "black lives matter".
In 2008, his son, Jamiel Andre Shaw II, was murdered by an illegal immigrant from Mexico.
Mr. Shaw asked the critical question, DO BLACK LIVES REALLY MATTER, OR DOES IT MATTER, ONLY IF YOU'RE SHOT BY A WHITE PERSON OR WHITE POLICEMAN....?
We will review both topics and the perceived interconnect ability between the two, which frankly, is part of an ongoing discourse that has transpired on Critical Discourse, sans the illegal immigration aspect.
We also may cover the frustration that former NFL-player, Kermit Alexander has been dealing with, in light of the murderer of his mother, sister and nephews, has yet to be executed, despite the verdict and sentence.
BLACK LIVES MATTER!
BUT, DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE IT?
Best-selling author Barbara Stanny hits it out of the park with her 8th book "Sacred Success"
She will share her perspective on where we are at in terms of women once and for all not assuming men in their lives are more savvy, educated or equipped to create financial safety and freedom for us! If money is simply a form of energy, then why do so many feel so dis-empowered when it comes to their money story?
As the daughter of the ‘R’ in H&R Block, Barbara grew up relying on her father and then her husband to manage her money. When a devastating financial crisis hit it became a personal wake-up call and put Barbara on a path to find financial enlightenment.
Tonight on The Gist of Freedom Join host, Roy Paul and guest, former prosecutor Dwayne Nash as they discuss Holder's decision not to charge Zimmerman.
The Justice Department announced Tuesday that George Zimmerman will not face federal criminal civil rights charges for shooting and killing teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012.
Zimmerman fatally shot Martin while the unarmed African American 17-year-old was walking in Sanford, Fla. The shooting became a national flashpoint, sparking a discussion of race relations that continues to reverberate since the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and other incidents across the country.
“The death of Trayvon Martin was a devastating tragedy,” Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said in a statement. “It shook an entire community, drew the attention of millions across the nation, and sparked a painful but necessary dialogue throughout the country.”
As a result of the announcement Tuesday, the federal investigation into the shooting has been closed.
A WARRIOR’S HEART: Conquering Cardiac Disease and Living Abundantly Well
As a cardiologist, I routinely witness people’s lives, and their families, destroyed by the devastating effects of heart disease. Although our technology allows us to better handle cardiac disease, it offers nothing in regards to prevention or reversal of chronic disease. At Integrative Cardiology, we have stepped up to help all of our practice members learn how to take charge of their health and become independent in their health needs. Join Howard Schwartz, MD a Board certified Cardiovascular Disease specialist, who served as a course reviewer for the Institute for Functional Medicine in vascular biology and mind-body medicine and is a member of the Hospital Staff at Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, as he explains the emerging discipline of Integrative Cardiology, and shares his “Heart Wellness and Lifestyle Program” as well as the principles of Cardiovascular, Nutritional, Functional, and Mind-Body Medicine.
Meet Dr. Schwartz in person at the March 29, 2015 NYC NAVEL expo www.navelexpo.com
white female teachers are being recruited to teach young Black youth all around this country. The impact has been absolutely devastating. When these white females are not intentionally misdiagnosing Black children with learning disabilities, they are undermining the self-esteem of our youth and pushing them into learning-disabled situations.
Additionally, the amerikkkan miseducation system is stripping the straightness out of our children by promoting "homosexuality" to our children as a preferable system of sexual behavior. They are stripping the Blackness out of our children by teaching our children that slavery never happened and that our enslavement was not bad. Additionally, they are confusing the very idea of what Blackness fundamentally is. Lastly, they are promoting the sexually degenerate hip-hop culture to our children in order to strip any sense of pride and self-respect from them.
In short, the whites are destroying the sanity and the promise of Black children throughout this country by warehousing them in miseducation institutions that resemble prisons more than learning institutions. Let's talk about the need for independent Black educational institutions.

I am so sorry Mary is sick today she has rescheduled for next Tuesday March 2,.
Ms Mary Priddy The early part of Mary's life was rich with family and love. Growing up attending church with her brothers and grandparents, Mary learned how to be a disciplined Christ follower at a young age. She was very close to her grandparents. Her grandfather, who was a preacher, exhibited genuine care and concern for his family and church body. Her grandparents served an important role in Mary's life. They showed her a faithful marriage, the constant acceptance of a loving Father, and the honoring routine of diligent believers. Mary re-calls singing hymns on the way to church in the car with her grandparents.
Mary would sing the same hymns to comfort herself years later on an urban street as she looked for the night's work... At the age of 12, Mary's life took an unexpected turn. As an unruly cry for help and attention after the devastating death of her grandfather, Mary took to self-harm to manipulatively extract herself from her home environment.
Her family had not coped with the death of her grandfather easily and every comfort she knew was falling to pieces around her. She wanted out. So she decided she'd do just that - get out. After an intentionally superficial cut to her forearm and a call to 911, Mary was placed in the state public care system of Tennessee.
