    #126 Azim Khamisa, Author - Peace Activist

    in Education

    The Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) Program is the largest school based father engagement program in the nation with over 4500 schools participating.


    Azim Khamisa – an author, activist and an international inspirational speaker – was born in Kenya, Africa and had early training in mathematics, economics and finance in the U.K. A successful investment banker with over 40 years of experience, he has conducted business in Africa, Middle East, Canada, USA, Europe and Asia. Presently he serves as the President of the Child Safety Network (CSN). Committing his life to halting the continuing cycle of violence among the youth, Azim became a social activist after his 20-year-old son Tariq was senselessly  murdered while delivering pizzas in January 1995 by Tony Hicks, a 14-year-old gang member. Out of grief and despair,  Khamisa was inspired to transform his loss through the power of forgiveness. Believing that there were “victims at both ends of the gun,” Azim forgave Tony and founded the Tariq Khamisa Foundation to break the cycle of youth violence by saving lives, empowering positive choices and teaching the principles of nonviolence and peacemaking. A month after establishing the foundation, Azim invited Ples Felix, Tony’s grandfather and guardian, to join him. Together, since November 1995, the two have brought their story and message through  TKF’s Violence Impact Assemblies. The duo has reached over a million elementary and middle school children live and over 8 million via video programs, guiding the youth to choose a peacemaker’s life of non-violence and forgiveness.


    Each week, WatchDOGS Radio host Keith Schumacher and co-host Chris Danenhauer discuss how this program is impacting families and schools across our nation and in four foreign countries.

    Ebola and Nursing Students

    in Health

    Nursing students must enter healthcare facilities to meet the clinical component of nursing education. With the recent diagnosis of clients with Ebola on US soil and the CDC's changing guidelines, nursing educators are engaged in conversations on how this affects students. What are the students saying? With all the information that has been reported and debated in the media, there is no doubt that students may have concerns on how this affect them. Does anyone expect that a nursing student would be asked to care for someone diagnosed with Ebola? Do we have to re-think our approach to education on infection control? Let's have a conversation about that.

    Students, Sex, and Teachers

    in School

    What makes a teacher prey on one of their students? And what, if any, lasting impact does it have on the child? Psychiatrist, Michelle Skeen discusses this serious issue with Joe today.


    Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?

    There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.

    Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.

    But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!

    If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you! 


    It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!

    #131 Deputies Making a Change - Deputy Kenneth Tramble,

    in Education

    Deputies Making a Change (DMAC) is a youth mentoring program that addresses the incarceration rate among young children. This program targets those who are failing in school, at risk of being incarcerated, or have problems with authority. This program will consist of tutoring, physical fitness, life skills, sessions with mentors, video instruction and many other tools will also be utilized.


    The main objective is to enhance the thinking ability of the neighborhood youth, as well as promote positive behavior among at-risk children and as a result produce better students that are eager to advance their education rather than participate in criminal activity. Seven core values will be utilized to ensure the structure of the program, discipline, education, accountability, commitment, motivation, respect for authority, and self reliance. These values are designed to manage the child’s behavior, while implementing discipline and education.
