SORT BY Relevancy
Acquanda Stanford is a Black feminist anthropologist, Full-Circle Doula, trained by the International Center for Traditional Childbearing and a Certified Lactation Educator. At one point not so long ago I had hopes of becoming an IBCLC — a Lactation Consultant, certified through the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners, but stopped pursuing that after obtaining that CLE. I am also a PhD student of sociocultural anthropology, researching breastfeeding among people of African Descent in the US. What all of this means for me, is that rather than focusing on clinical applications and mechanics (how to latch a baby to a breast, information about breast pumps, milk storage, etc.), I focus on social theory. Breastfeeding is a biological site and serves as a gateway to explore the greater complexities around this tradition. Viewing this through a critical and holistic framework, it allows me to view a larger picture and explore areas of culture and biology, social organization, areas of domination, environment, gender, as well as community empowerment and various others via a historical, contemporary and cross-cultural context. My ultimate goal is to become a professor of anthropology and bring the culmination of these topics to higher education — as well as participate in applied work outside of the academy, and also continue to engage the general public.
Even though much of what I do has become a love of my life, my entry point in this area may or may not be like others you have heard of. I wasn’t placed here because I had an obsession with birth and breastfeeding, like many of us who consider ourselves ‘junkies’; far from it. Being here is the last place on earth I would have ever imagined myself.

There is no way to explain the connection one feels with a kindred musher's Spirit. A true Musher living a "dogs first" life, rescuing from shelters and taking in retiring sled dogs so they can continue to do what they have been born to do: mush. I have more respect for Von Martin than I can describe in this small introduction to the show.
Von Martin is an Anthropoligist, public speaker, author of "A Long Way to Nome: The Serum Run '25 Expedition," that he told me was a "love story to his Huskies." A musician for 30 years and counting, we have been laughing about singing to our dogs, and that I personally cannot deafen them with my off tune singing as they are tone deaf. And for me, one of his greatest accomplishments, was the 2013 award from the Northwest Sled Dog Association for "Best Cared for Team," making him the only 5 time recipient of this annual award. And that tells me personally, everything I need to know about him to ask him to come speak with us for an hour.
Among the amazing dogs Von has had the pleasure of being responsible for, he will tell us Chewbacca's story, an incredible dog and dear friend that was able to participate in the 2011 Serum Run on the Iditarod Trail at age 13. Chewy is just one example of the care and love his dogs recieve to be able to keep on running into their senior years.
I encourage you to call in with questions for this true musher man, about his adventures and experiences with the dogs he calls family.

Tasked by the Federation of Planets to determine if Earthlings present a threat as they venture into space, Tak, an alien anthropologist, leaves her starship orbiting Earth and takes a shuttle to Kansas. Intending to study humans in the United States—as she has learned no Earth language but English—she is detected while descending through the atmosphere and only evades capture by fleeing to Europe, where she lands in Poland. There, she meets an international arms merchant, Baron Von Limbach, who becomes her guide. She studies “typical” human behavior by accompanying the baron as he fulfills his latest assignment—to get the Dalai Lama back into Tibet. His method of halting the communist takeover of Tibet is to create a race-specific Ebola that will only attack Han Chinese, giving Tak a prime example of how barbaric humans can be. However, the CIA and US military are aware of Tak’s presence on Earth and are determined to capture her. And if she is unable to complete her mission and return to her starship—her captain will destroy every living thing on Earth.
Travel to the ends of the earth on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when joining Halli at her table are inventor, artist, photographer, and industrial designer, Dan Kainen author of a new Photicular ™ book: POLAR and David Good, author of THE WAY AROUND, FINDING MY MOTHER & MYSELF AMONG THE YANOMAMI.
An alumnus of Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, Dan Kainen's art has been exhibited in the Ronald Feldman Gallery in Soho, among other New York galleries and private collections. In the 1980s Kainen started experimenting with holography, and then with integrated images. This led to three patents in that field, the latest of which is the basis for a new Photicular™ book: POLAR, that takes readers on a stunning journey to the remote, mysterious, and severe Arctic and Antarctic.
David Good is a Yanomami-American, his mother a Yanomami residing in the Amazon Rainforest of southeastern Venezuela. His father, Kenneth Good, is an American anthropologist whom studied the Yanomami people for decades, which is where he met David’s mom. Their family’s history has been televised in National Geographic and written about in People Magazine, New York Times, and the London Times. Now David tells his own story in his fascinating new memoir, THE WAY AROUND, FINDING MY MOTHER & MYSELF AMONG THE YANOMAMI a story of self-discovery, of being of two worlds, growing up in New Jersey, his mother’s abandonment and return to her tribe in the Amazon when he was six, the heavy toll that took on his childhood and the near-fatal car accident that gave him a purpose: to find a way back to his mom. Good is the founder and executive director of The Good Project, a nonprofit service organization dedicated to the education, health care, and preservation of indigenous groups in South and Central America.

Brian Solis is a digital analyst, anthropologist, and also a futurist. In his work at Altimeter Group, Solis studies the effects of disruptive technology on business and society. More so, he humanizes technology’s causal effect to help people see people differently and understand what to do about it. Brian has released a string of books for business that challenge and push the envelope on helping businesses understand consumer behavior... and his latest book is an example of what it takes.
X: The Experience Where Business Meets Design
"This isn’t your ordinary business book. The idea of a book was re-imagined for a digital meets analog world to be a relevant and sensational experience. Its aesthetic was meant to evoke emotion while also giving new perspective and insights to help you win the hearts and minds of your customers. And, the design of this book, along with what fills its pages, was done using the principles shared within."
Brian took time out of his business schedule as author, speaker, analyst and consultant to share with us his vision for this book and why it required 3.5 years from idea to execution. It's a fascinating conversation where Brian helps explain where we've been, where we are, and why businesses need to yield his advice on where to go next.

"WE’LL FIND NO MISSING LINKS HERE SINCE WE DIDN’T EVOLVE FROM TERRAN PRIMATES."
"In anthropology in the ‘60s, my teachers attributed all human development to gradual evolution. A Miocene or Pliocene anthropoid ape that evolved from simpler primates slowly, in turn, evolved over millions of years into us [Clark, D., W., 1959, History of the Primates:178]. We multiplied as we planted food, created cities and developed ever-more effective technologies. Yet, in terms of biological evolution, we lacked linking intermediate skeletons of primates from which the teachers thought we evolved and modern findings indicate several contemporaneous advanced hominids co-existed with Homo Erectus, and may have been the product of human settlement on Earth long before Enki and crew colonized Earth, some 400,000 years ago."
The theory of panspermia, that Earth was “seeded from elsewhere,” was put forth in cuneiform clay tablets millennia ago."
“300,000 years ago, “the Anunnaki [from the planet Nibiru] jumped the gun on [Earth's] evolution and, using genetic engineering, upgraded a hominid, Homo Erectus–to an intelligent, tool-handling Homo sapiens) to be their serf. "
