"Time is running out" and "My biological clock is ticking," are two phrases used by millions of women who are frustrated by their single status. Too many women struggle with being single--especially after forty. Because our society is geared toward families it’s easy to believe that being married with children is the best decision for every one. It’s not. More and more women, and men for that matter, are going against the grain and choosing to remain single and childless. Join us for today's call where Tammy Johnston, a happy and single 40-something, will bust the myths of the "single-life blues" and share how she has created a joyous, happy, single life.

Noah Chamberlin, 2 years old was dropped off at grandma's house, went for a hike and ended up dead in Pinson, Tennesee. Last week I did a profile of little Noah and told you here on the show that Noah was a Gemini and that his ruling planet Mercury was retrograde and that he would be found. The next two days the Moon was in his sign of Gemini and I said he had a good chance of being found and that he would be found by Monday the 25th as Mercury was going direct. This in fact did happen as he was found the following day. He was found in a clearing a mile and a half from where the grandmother said he was lost. Tune in for more on his case.

While mothers will likely get much of the attention for their flood into the workplace and the barriers they still face, fathers will at least partially share the spotlight. This comes after a few smaller meetings, including one on working fathers specifically. Fathers, on the other hand, are a sure bet. While women with children make less than childless ones, fathers actually make more than men without kids. We still don’t see men as children’s caregivers, inside or outside of the home. Even the government has a problem with this: The Census counts mothers as the “designated parent” no matter what the actual family situation may be and only counts dad’s care if mom is gone. Fathers increasingly want to be fathers. Pew found 46 percent of fathers felt that they don’t spend enough time with their kids, compared to less than a quarter of mothers. They are equally stressed about balancing their work and their families. Two-thirds of fathers in a 2011 survey wanted to split childcare duties with their spouse.
And yet of those same fathers, two-thirds admitted that their wives provided more care. The reality is that no one can really do enough in either arena, so everyone is making a choice. It’s just that the choices are different depending on the gender. So how can we give men what they want and let them be parents as well as workers?
Please join host Frankie Picasso on Thursday, October 22nd at 1:00 pm EST as she goes on a Mission Unstoppable with guest Lucia Weitzman a child survivor of the holocaust.
As Hitlers armies began to gather up the Polish Jews, Lucia’s parents feared for her safety and rightly so. In their attempt to escape, they decided it best to leave Lucia behind, hidden in plain site. They gave her to a childless Polish Catholic couple to raise as their own, always hoping that they might meet again after the war, but Poland was hardest hit by the Nazis. There were no survivors left behind.
Lucia was born in Bochnia, Poland in 1940. Her Jewish parents perished in the Holocaust and Lucia was raised in the Catholic Church by her adopted parents the Swiateks. Lucia loved the church and had deep and spiritual faith. When she learned that she too was a Jew, she really had no idea what that meant, beyond knowing that everyone hated the Jews. As she grew older, Lucia began suffering anti semitism as a lone Jew in Bochnia, and eventually concluded that she would never be able to marry or have children if she stayed. After escaping detention by Communist authorities in 1961, she immigrated to the United States and married Herman Weitzman, a Holocaust survivor and businessman raised in a traditional Jewish family
Lucia’s life has been documented in her new book The Rose Temple , written by her son Mitchell, which tells an incredible tale of survival, loss, and a love for God that would spur a spiritual search across the world , not once but several times as she sought answers to life’s most pressing questions.
Did you ever feel as if you just want to walk away? Or, not feel as strongly as you do about the children, the ex, your partner? It may be time to DISENGAGE. But, what does that word mean? Do you leave town? Do you stop talking to everyone? Do you just stop doing anything? It all may sound great or very scary. Barb Goldberg gives you tips on how to disengage and find the life you may be looking for.

"Ending Corporal Punishment in Schools Act," HR 2268* is in the hands of "the people" now. Fathers, mothers and legal guardians and childless adults are empowered now to end the use of "school corporal punishment" (a euphemism for "pain-based behavior management", the lowest form of discipline one can use upon a "developing human being" to "correct" behavior).
September 3, 2015 will leave HR 2268 with 62 remaining days before reaching its time of expiration.
