    Remember when we had firemen and man hole covers?  Think those days are over?  Well think again!  Language, words and what we say has all sorts of power; power that can influence social attitudes and even career expectations.  If you  thought the word war was won 30 years ago, think again.

    Rosalie Maggio is the award-winning author of over 20 books, including the 2-million-copy bestseller How to Say It; a French-language biography of daredevil Marie Marvingt; 2 children's books and hundreds of children's stories; one of the largest collections of women's quotations in print; how-to books like The Art of Talking to Anyone and The Art of Organizing Anything, and 4 books on biased language, including the just-published Unspinning the Spin: The Women's Media Center Guide to Fair and Accurate Language. Published by McGraw Hill, Prentice-Hall, Beacon, Morrow, and others, her books have been translated in Japanese, Italian, Chinese, Thai, Korean, and Arabic.

She is currently writing an English-language biography of Marie Marvingt (see www.mariemarvingt.com) and working on screenplays.

    She will join us Saturday at 11 am Pacific Time to talk about language, words, gender and bias.  And I’ll bet you are rocked by what she has to say about the words we use.

    Brian Williams Needs You

    in News

    NBC News Anchor Brian Williams is in a little bit of hot water.  He admits he embellished a story about being on a military helicopter that was shot down in Iraq in 2003.

    Some of the soldiers on the chopper were the ones who called Williams out.

    As of this recording, NBC News has not disciplined him.

    This story is a great symbol of what TV news is today – and why it is losing relevance as news – because it is wrapped in entertainment.

    First, let me say this about Brian Williams.  I don’t know him.  What I see of him on the air – like on the Daily show – he is funny and talented.  From what I hear and read, he is, what one person described as a mensch who talks to and mingles with staffers.  He is no prima-donna.

    So I feel some sympathy for Williams.  You hate to jump on someone when they’re a decent person and they’re down.

    Still, my comments here relate to the TV news industry – and what effect it might have had on Brian Williams and this story.

    Williams has apologized.  He went on air and social media to say – quote –

    "I think the continued viewing of the video showing us inspecting the impact area — and the fog of memory over 12 years — made me conflate the two, and I apologize." End Quote

    OK let’s give him the benefit of the doubt.  Maybe he was so wrapped up into the “eye witness accounts” of the soldiers that he re-lived them as his own.

    Ronald Reagan used to tell war stories in speeches only to find out the incidents were from screenplays.

    And who among us hasn’t embellished a little bit on our own significance?

    Still, Brian Williams holds what is supposed to be a position of trust.

    Turning Life Experiences into a Compelling Memoir - Guest Jon D'Amore

    in Writing

    Our guest Jon D’Amore was first published at 10 when a story he’d written about the Civil War was distributed throughout the county school system. During that time, he began studying the guitar. By his 20s, having honed his love and knowledge of music, Jon was traveling cross-country as a musician.

    While touring, Jon was also a feature writer for New Jersey’s 3rd largest newspaper, The Passaic Herald News, allowing him to enjoy the best of his favorite worlds…playing music and writing. Eventually, he found a different side of life. He said, “Goodbye and it’s been a slice!” to the music business and entered the corporate world. By the millennium another
    change had taken place. For more than two decades, Jon knew that within him there was the desire and ability to write, so he drove to Los Angeles and started as soon as he arrived.

    As an insider with no mob ambitions, Jon had been a trusted ear and learned of the life and death manipulations that made friends and relatives from his world disappear. When the smoke cleared, Jon was one of the few left standing. The others were either dead or in prison. The Boss Always Sits In The Back isn’t “just another mob story.” It reveals the demise of the mobsters who ran northern New Jersey…as told by someone who was there.

    He didn’t stop until the manuscript and screenplay for The Boss Always Sits In The Back were completed. Jon has written and co-written several screenplays and articles. He still resides in California where he continues to write…and listen to music and will share what it takes to write a compelling memoir and publicize it.

    Acclaimed Travel Writer, Pico Iyer on the Art of Stillness

    in Self Help

    Acclaimed travel writer Pico Iyer joins Sister Jenna on the America Meditating Radio Show!  Why might a lifelong traveler like Pico Iyer who has journeyed from Easter Island to Ethiopia, Cuba to Kathmandu, think that sitting quietly in a room might be the ultimate adventure? Because in our madly accelerating world, our lives are crowded, chaotic and noisy. There’s never been a greater need to slow down, tune out and give ourselves permission to be still.

    Pico Iyer was born in England, to parents from India, and was educated at Eton, Oxford and Harvard. He began his career documenting a neglected aspect of travel -- the sometimes surreal disconnect between local tradition and imported global pop culture. He has written 12 books, exploring also the cultural consequences of isolation, whether writing about the exiled spiritual leaders of Tibet or the embargoed society of Cuba.

    Pico’s latest focus is on another overlooked aspect of travel: how can it help us regain our sense of stillness and focus in a world where our devices and digital networks increasing distract us? He is also a contributor to many magazines, writer of screenplays and liner-notes and introductions to 40 other books. His newest book is, "The Art of Stillness." Visit http://picoiyerjourneys.com and watch Pico’s Ted Talk on the Art of Stillness.
