    Developmental Delays and 5p-

    in Health

    Mike and Joyce speak with Laura Castillo, Executive Director of FivePMinus.org, helping families affected by Cri du Chat (Cat Cry) Syndrome (CdCs).


    Babies born with CdCs are characterized at birth by a high-pitched cry, low birth weight, poor muscle tone, microcephaly, and potential medical complications.  "5p-" is a term used by geneticists to describe a portion of the short arm of chromosome number five that is missing in these individuals.  Some of the facial characteristics include:



    Round "moon shaped" face
    Small upturned nose at birth
    Small or low set chin (micrognathis)
    Low positioned ears
    Downward slanting of the eyes
    Wide spaced eyes
    Extra skin fold at the inner corner of one or both eyes (epicanthal fold)


    These facial features usually elongate as the child enters adulthood.  Children with CdCs are often also diagnosed with autism since many of the developmental issues are similar.


    There is a great deal of good information on this syndrome on their website.  See especially http://www.fivepminus.org/Development


    Laura shares with us the origins of the 5p- Society, the national family support group for individuals with Cri du Chat Syndrome.  They group shares expeerience and provides support to individuals and families affected by CdCs, sharing strategies for managing the syndrome and supporting their children in achieving his or her maximum potential  Children with Cri du Chat Syndrome can lead full and meaningful lives with love and support.

    SHIFT TODAY "God's Marriage Plan, Purpose and Position for The MRS."

    in Christianity

    God created marriage to be good.  Have you ever thought about God having a sense of humor as He shares His great plans, ideas and commands?  You may recognize a few of them when He told husbands and wives to come together on whatever day they chose with all their "stuff and real-life experiences" and become one with all their family and friends witnessing and celebrating their grand moment.  Oh yea, and how could you possibly forget these characteristics of being completely humble and gentle; being patient, bearing with one another in love.  All things are possible with God as we invite the Holy Spirit to be in the center from the beginning to the end of our lives, courtships and marriages.  Join the various conversations on our new Monday evening segments on SHIFT TODAY "God's Marriage Plan, Purpose and Position for The MRS." with Host Nina Roach and other wives offering support, hope, encouragement and prayer as they share God's word, their real-time life and marriage experiences, laughter and love.  There's hope for you and your marriage!  Connect weekly Mondays from 7:00 P.M. - 8:00 P.M.

    Who Am I, Really? Part I of a Two Part Series

    in Self Help

    Most of us only know a very limited part of who we are. We call this part of the self the personality and it's based on the ego.  The ego is one of three theoretical constructs (e.g., Id, Ego, and Super-ego) that make up the psyche.  Essentially, the ego represents the personality you created and have evolved over your lifetime.  It represents the part of yourself you are most consciously aware of.  For example, your personality represents various traits and characteristics you might identify with including, but not limited to, your likes and dislikes, whether you relate to being introverted or extroverted, and how you identify yourself in the world (e.g., mother, father, professional, optimist, pessimist, etc).  


    Much of the time your ego is running the show of your life.  However, as much as you might know yourself, the ego is a very limited aspect of who you really are.  Today, we're going to cover part one of a two part series concerning the question, Who Am I? by exploring what it means to be conscious of the personality you've created. Consider these questions:


    1.   How Do I Define Myself?   


    2.  How Might I Interact with the various aspects of myself?:  Mind, Body, Spirit, Sexuality, and Emotions. 


    3. How can I develop a deeper connection with myself?

    The Road to Recovery - Hosted by Dan Czuba

    in Business

    Living with an Addiction is like sailing on the ocean without any rudder or the ability to raise or lower the sails. On good days - you have no idea of where you are headed - and you can try an hope that it is the direction you want to go - and you think you are enjoying yourself. However on those days when the wind kicks up or turns into a violent storm - holding on to a vessel that can sink at any moment should be enough to motivate anyone to seek recovery. Ahhh - but once the winds die down and you realize that you are still alive - some weird voice in the back of your brain tells you the worse is over and you once again continue your journey into a potentially torrential future.


    Join me - Dan Czuba and my many various guest Hosts and Callers as we candidly discuss what it takes to get and stay sober in todays world of growing temptations. Despite the fact that I have 19 years, 5 months and 18 days of continuous Sobriety (But who is counting ? - I AM OF COURSE)- I/we ONLY Have today. Learn how I/we make the Best of every day -  while developing habits to grow as individuals - helping others find Serenity for themselves - and possibly those they love. JOIN US!

    When Fat is no Longer Beautiful: Body Diversification New Names, Old Problem

    in Culture

    Why Are we accepting people for the way they look regardless of their size? Would we accept them if instead of people being obese they were drug addicted or severe alcoholics?  Probably not. Then why do we accept obesity? As a species humans do not have to engage in drugs or alcohol but we do have to eat. However, because of the recent  wide spread acceptance to food, over eating is now okay, right? Wrong. This new body image acceptance has gone way too far and is sending a message that it's okay to be fat when actually it is not. If humans were made to be fat, we would be born that way and the fact is we aren't created that way, we become that way.
