March 27, 2015: At Brooke Army Medical Center in Texas, physical therapists often see patients who have suffered a mild traumatic brain injury or concussion in the line of duty. Sometimes the concussion is the result of an explosion in combat. Other times, it might be due to a fall or collision during training.
Lt Col Tony Cromer Jr, suffered a concussion due to a more common workplace hazard, when his head was slammed by an opening door. The effects of that workplace accident, including headaches and dizziness, were the same as they often are for soldiers on the battlefield.
In this episode, physical therapist Miriam Hammerle, PT, Cert SMT, and Cromer discuss his injury and treatment.

Butch Witkowski, FFSc, Director, Founder, UFO Research Center of Pennsylvania-Editor, JAAR, Journal of Alien Abduction Research, Member Institute of Frontier Science ParaNexus™ Consultant/Advisor – Ufology Member Académie d'Ufologie, Former MUFON Chief Investigator, Star Team Investigator, and State Section Director. Former Law Enforcement Officer. Associate - P&M Fortean Research . From Butch, "I’ve been an Independent Researcher since 1989 when I, along with 4 other people, witnessed a UFO of unbelievable size quietly hover above a mountain in Tucson, Arizona. It was totally silent. Burn Copper in color and at least three football fields in length. It moved slowly up and down, then rose upwards, moved forward, and then vanished at lightning speed. We all agreed on what we had just seen. However, calls to the Sheriffs Dept., the news media, and the local Air Force base yielded no sighting reports. I began my own investigation into the UFO Phenomenon on that day. After joining MUFON, I was able to dig deeper into past and existing cases and pursue even more on site investigations. It was time to go about this work in a different manner, and after almost a year of serious reflection and consideration, I started the UFO Research Center of Pennsylvania in 2009 and brought together some of the best like-minded researchers I could find. We have also fielded two fully equipped mobile units and have affiliate groups in eleven states and two in Europe". www.uforcop.com
The theory of reincarnation is discussed tonight. With many religions pointing to the "rebirth of the soul" as a belief in one way or another, this theory seems to have deep roots in the human psyche.
Many times unexplainable dreams link a person to past memories, but are they just a collective human consciousness, or truly a soul who keeps its own past life experiences in memory?
Lost Arts Radio host Richard Sacks (www.lostartsradio.com) has been an independent holistic health scientist since 1965. Initially motivated by his own serious health problems of the time, he made the decision to explore beyond the accepted limits and understandings of medical science to regain the vibrant state of health and ageless energy he felt was our normal condition. He began an investigation of the deeper knowledge of health and consciousness from ancient sources that modern science fails to comprehend and often brushes off with condescending arrogance. What he discovered in a multi-decade journey crossed many arbitrary dividing lines between physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health, organic agriculture (before USDA took over the term), and laws of nature that have been operating and were understood long before any of the philosophies, religions or academic disciplines we know of were even conceived. Having spent the last 40 years looking for ways to adapt ancient knowledge to modern conditions, reaching simultaneously into realms of science and consciousness, he continues the exploration and experimentation to this day. Recently invited to do a radio show on health in the broader sense of the word, covering many areas of study, Richard started Lost Arts Research Institute and Lost Arts Radio, to share what he has put together over a long period of study, trial and error, and discovery.
This Saturday for the first time so far on Lost Arts Radio, Richard will share some of what he has learned over many years of this study, hoping that it might be useful to you in maximizing your own state of health, energy and well being during your life in this very challenging age.

Lonny J Avi Brooks is an Assistant professor in the Communication Department at California State University, East Bay. His current manuscript is Playing@Foresight: Communicating the Future of Digital Culture (in review at MIT Press). His research of long term thinking of is part of a larger study of how organizations (especially forecasting think tanks), interaction designers, and college youth envision the future of media and information technologies. This research brings together his interests in the social and cultural impacts of new media and the distribution of societal stories we invent to forward, mitigate, or restrain technological and scientific invention. He looks at futurist think tanks worldwide to investigate the metaphors employed in future scenarios of computing as they interact with historical, sociocultural memories, and present-day realities. As part of his research on emergent trends in social computing and user experience research, he investigates how long term thinking can be implemented in higher education. Professor Brooks is a member of the research group, Gaming as a Lens for Learning project to investigate gaming as a platform for understanding how gaming can provide students with immersive experiences in learning about media theory and practice. Professor Brooks received his PhD in Communication at UC San Diego and an MA in Library and Information Science at UCLA. He is currently Chair of the Communication And The Future (CATF) division of the National Communication Association.
Bio for Tannis Laidlaw
Tannis was born in Canada then emigrated to New Zealand to do various degrees in Psychology/Psychiatry. She started writing early (a soppy poem published in her High School Yearbook) but quickly turned to academic writing. Some sixty publications on, she began the fun of writing fiction.
In the meantime, she worked as an OT, a psychologist or a researcher in large mental hospitals or universities, in community psychiatry, in forensic psychology, and in private practice.
Somehow she accumulated eight novels on her hard drive before she thought some might be publishable. Recently her agent has found her a publisher, and she now has a contract to write two murder mysteries. She published PUMPKIN EATER with a small NZ publisher, then self-published BYE BABY BUNTING and recently HALF TRUTHS AND WHOLE LIES.
PUMPKIN EATER is the story of the aftermath of a woman who snapped, a woman who was both physically and emotionally abused in the past, who broke away from her awful husband by throwing him down the stairs leaving him in a pool of blood, then escaping. Great fun to write!
BYE BABY BUNTING centres around a young university student who becomes an ‘unwed mother’, is pressured to give up her baby for adoption, then steals her back again. Like PUMPKIN EATER, this is a psychological thriller.
HALF TRUTHS AND WHOLE LIES takes place in an English medical school where our protagonist has been head-hunted to lead a research team. She encounters a bully for a boss, a woman who will stop at nothing to gain the prestige she wants. Workplace bullies have long fascinated Tannis…
She also wrote and published CUT THE CARBS, CUT THE GUT, a review, put into layman’s language, of the science behind a largely unacknowledged diet for health and weight loss.
Tari Prinster is a cancer survivor, yoga teacher and author. She is the Founder of Yoga4Cancer, LLC (y4c) and the Retreat Project (nonprofit) – businesses that are bringing specialized yoga cancer survivors through classes & retreats. Also she leads a robust teacher training program to help enable yoga teachers to best adapt all styles to fit the unique needs of cancer patients & survivors.
In Tari’s own words, she recounts her background with yoga and cancer: ‘When I was fifty, I started a yoga practice on a hunch it would ease menopausal symptoms. It did! That was sixteen years ago. Today, I am an example that it is never too late to start, never too late to change. Yoga made me feel younger and stand straighter. I sleep better, my weight is good, and my bones are strong.
I found yoga a powerful tool to manage the daily challenges of cancer treatments as well as the side effects and life-long vulnerabilities they create. I discovered yoga was more than a way to stay healthy. It gave me emotional support and spiritual comfort so needed during recovery.
I was curious why yoga was doing so much for me. My research made it clear why yoga strengthens the immune system, thus providing, among other things, protection against a cancer reoccurrence.
