    A Theory of Parenting - Rockefeller Center

    in Current Events

    Hello,


    Welcome to A Theory of Parenting on Blogtalkradio.com


    My name is Tammi Joyner 


    I am your Host for the Show


    Today we are live from Rockefeller Center in NYc


    Throughout the year, the Rockefeller Center Channel Gardens blooms in uniquely themed plant installations that transform with the seasons. 


    Visit the Channel Gardens to see the April Showers installation on display from April 20 through May 31.


     


    Designed specifically for Rockefeller Plaza, Masks (Pentagon) consists of five masks ranging in height from 14.5 to 16.5 feet, each of which reflects a different approach to the stylized representation of the human face, from the clearly recognizable to the highly abstracted. 


    The five masks, which were cast from clay in industrial-strength synthetic plaster, stand on a stepped base made from massive beams of unfinished redwood. The back of each element of the sculpture reveals the artists method of construction – a grid-like armature of rebar inlaid with hemp and plaster.


    Rockefeller Center is home to a remarkable collection of art deco motifs and sculptures signifying man’s development in spirit, science, industry and more.

    Evening Primrose, Tulsi Basil and Hyssop! Garden Herbs that will surprise you!

    in Gardening

    On tonight's show, Rosie, Numa and jason will be discussing three interesting herbs that you can cultivate in your own garden that have powerful healing capabilities.  Evening Primrose is most popularly known in its seed oil form frequently sold in health food stores for its high gamma-linolenic acid content.  Although you will see supplements of this plant widly advertised, on tonight's show we will be  talking about growing and using the whole plant, including leaves, buds, blooms, roots and seeds.


    Also known as “Tulsi” or “The Incomparable One,” holy basil is one of the most sacred plants in India. In Hindu mythology, Tulsi symbolizes the goddess Lakshmi, the wife of Vishnu, who is one of the religion's most important deities. The herb has been valued for centuries because of its benefits for the mind, body, and spirit.


    The hyssop herb is generally used to treat the symptoms of cardiovascular disorders. Because it is both a sedative and a stimulant, one of its uses may be to regulate a person’s blood pressure, whether it is too high or too low. Hyssop leaves can also be infused in order to suppress coughs, improve digestion and even relieve congestion in the intestines.


    The show is sponsored by Rosalea and Blended Herbal Treasures at www.bhtshop.com.

    New Roses for 2015 - David Austin Roses

    in Gardening

    For Spring 2015, David Austin introduces four new English Roses to U.S. and Canadian gardeners. All four feature classic Austin rose attributes – a romantic old-fashioned flower form, heady fragrance and masses of blooms all season long. Michael Marriott is our guest on today's broadcast. He's the chief rosarian at David Austin roses and we'll be chatting about this exceptional collection of roses. 


    “We expect gardeners will be excited by these appealing English Roses,” says Austin’s senior rosarian Michael Marriott. “Each has irresistible qualities, the kind that lead gardeners to discover they have ‘just the spot’ for this!”


    Available by mail order from www.davidaustinroses.com,


    ‘The Lady Gardener’ – This is an intensely fragrant, apricot-colored rose that’s astoundingly floriferous, nearly burying itself in perfume and flowers from early summer to frost and has added it to their list of Most Fragrant English Roses.


    The Albrighton Rambler’ – Typically a rambler rose delivers a spectacular show, but blooms only once a season. ‘The Albrighton Rambler’ blooms repeatedly all season long. 


    Thomas à Becket’ – Whereas Austin’s roses often recall an Old Rose in look, this rose is closer to a species rose, being more natural and shrubby in growth. The large red flowers are shallowly cupped, opening as informal rosettes, with petals that quickly reflex as the flowers age. 


    Maid Marion’ – This 2015 North American introduction has everything gardeners prize in David Austin's English Roses. The buds open in rounded cups with large outside petals.

    Dr. Duke Pesta On Common Core And The National Sexuality Education Standards

    in News

    Hear interview with Dr. Duke Pesta as he opens our eyes to some very important details in this nationalized education system that is being implemented.  He is a nationally renowned speaker that can connect the dots for us on how the National Sexuality Education Standards will come in to the schools.  We will be speaking with him and other Education Activists such as Alice Linahan of Women on the Wall, Ann Eubank of Stop Common Core Alabama will be dropping in to give more perspectives.   One of the topics we will comment is on the latest tentacle of this nationalized system--the Comprehensive Counseling Guidance Proposal which uses the ASCA National Model.  According to Linda Murphy, a nationally renowned Educator/Activist, who has studied Dr. Bice's Comprehensive Counseling Guidance -- "This is a dangerous expansion of the authority of public schools into the private lives of students, which has never been allowed in American schools. This plan sets goals for changes in students’ emotions, feelings, attitudes, values and beliefs. The area educators call the "affective domain" (from Blooms Taxonomy)." 


    This is part 1 of a two part audio


    Parents need to awaken as according to Mental Health Expert, Joan Landes, this is BIG.  Come learn and share the truths so you can Stand in the Gap for precious children NOW!

    Senseless Hate, With Rabbi Yossi

    in Spirituality

    We once again welcome Yosef Yitzchok Serebryanski to broadcast, who is known simply to his friends as “Rabbi Yossi.” Behind that simplicity lies a complexity of understanding and analysis of Torah and creation that brings joy and warmth to those who immerse themselves in his teachings. A true friend and confidant to thousands of people who turn to him weekly for guidance and wisdom, Rabbi Yossi is renowned for his compassion and open heart to all who enter his scope. During this broadcast Rabbi Yossi interacts with us regarding senseless hate, with some of the following questions being addressed: (1) What are some of the reasons hatred can come about? (2) Why do people not care about real truth and instead focus on imaginary truth that is man-made? (3) Why is the sound, music, chanting, etc., that people hear so important? (4) It is true that people hate that which they do not understand? (5) Should we try to reason with people who have baseless hatred? (6) It is possible for a person to choose to leave the cycle of senseless hatred and return to reason (and true freedom)? (7) Often when a person feels abandoned or rejected the result is hatred rather than sorrow. Why do you feel this is the case?


    Rabbi Yossi is a major force in his general community. He is on the governor's committee of New York Rising to decide how spend 12 million dollars from the governor of New York in the community as well as connect with other government agencies to make a resilient community. He is part of a committee of NYC Planning from the mayor of New York for Canarsie, being co-founder of Canarsie Strong that deals with all issues of Canarsie to make it a resilient and self- sustaining community and is also Co-founder of Canarsie Blooms, creating the first public organic garden in the community.
