SORT BY Relevancy
Remember when the Canada/US Free Trade Agreement came along? It was all over the media, politicians of the day gave extensive time and effort to explain how they saw it to Canadians. It was the core issue of a Federal election. The majority Government victory for Brian Mulroney paved the passing of the pact. Then it became NAFTA with the inclusion of Mexico. Most of us can certainly remember some of the issues from that time, and they still go on.
Those days of relative "transparency" are long gone. The Corporate Pacification Committee (CPC) of Emperor Harper doesn't believe in telling Canadians what all these "trade" deals really mean. Canada/China FIPA. TPP. And now, CETA, Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement. With the 28 member European Union. Despite the warm fuzzies from Emperor about this being a "done deal", it is nowhere near that. The Agreement text is out there, whether it was meant to be or not. And it's not that "upside" for Canada.
Scott Harris is the Trade Campaigner with the Council of Canadians, Canada’s largest citizens’ organization. He has been active for over a decade in the anti-globalization movement, organizing around the MAI in the late-90s, the WTO ministerial in Seattle in 1999, the FTAA meetings in Quebec City in 2001, the Kananaskis meeting of the G8 in 2002 and the G20 Summit in Toronto. Prior to his position as trade campaigner, Scott was the Council of Canadians’ Prairies-NWT Regional Organizer, and he has also worked in the labour movement with the Alberta Federation of Labour and the Alberta Workers Health Centre and in international solidarity through the Alberta Council for Global Cooperation. He has had the distinct pleasure of being tear gassed by security forces in three different countries.
I will be joined by Scott and we will examine this deal in detail. There is much that Canadians need to know about it.

"All people with disabilities shall have the option to design, control and direct their own services and funding." This is the aim of the Person-Driven Services Project which is funded by the PA Developmental Disabilities Council and managed by the Institute on Disabilities at Temple University. Join us for a discussion on person-driven services and supports with Kristin Ahrens, Policy Director for the Institute on Disabilities. We will talk about what we mean by “person-driven services and supports” and a give summary of the research on this model of service delivery. We will explain the work being done through the cross-disability Person Driven Services Project.
Many people who want to direct their own services have expressed that they need support to direct their own services - help with things like recruiting and managing workers. Many people have also expressed the need for more flexibility in terms of what the funding for services and supports will cover. This is where the Supports Broker and Cash and Counseling can be important for real opportunities for self-direction. We will talk in detail about the role of the Supports Broker and what is happening to make Supports Brokers available. Cash and Counseling (known in PA as "Services My Way") will also be discussed as a possible way to offer more flexibility for what service funding can purchase.
PA Independent Living Radio Show is brought to you every Friday at 12:00 pm EDT/EST by The Arc of Luzerne County. Please consider a donation in support of our work to help improve the quality of life for people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and their families.

October and November are very busy months in the political arena. Just think, in only six (6) days we will be able to take a deep breath and rest for a day or two. As we get nearer to Election Day 2014 several political candidates will be popping in to discuss their political desires and ask you for their votes. I encourage you to listen to these candidates and make an educated choice when you enter the poll booth.
A few days ago we had Glynn Willis "In the Pickle Barrel". Wednesday, October 29th his opponent local Attorney and Civic Leader George Jebaily will sharing the same mic. This is a good time to find out more about Mr. Jebaily and his vision for the City of Florence. All I can say about these two gentleman is I am glad I live in the County of Florence not the City of Florence. As far as local elections go, this will be a tough choice for the local citizens. We really need to find out what the differences are in these two men.
October is Domestic Abuse Month. We have addressed this issue from many different angles. On this day we will have Debbie Singletary of Pepper Spray, Stun Guns, Whistles and More! Anyone one to guess the topic? All joking aside. South Carolina, where I hang my shingle and lay my head is the leader in Domestic Abuse and Death of Women By Significant Other statistics. Isn't this something to make you proud? We have looked at the cause, results and decisions made (and not made) surrounding this topic. We are now going to look at personal protection and prevention.
These topics and more* will fill our morning visit "In the Pickle Barrel" at 8AM-10AM EST.
*Hint: We just might talk about the marriage of Governor candidates Tom Ervin and Vincent Sheheen. Just in case you have not heard, Ervin has "thrown in the towel" for a wedding dress. Yes, that is tacky. What a darling couple. Got to give equal time to Governor Nikki Haley.

Archangel Michael joins us in this post-Lake Tahoe and post-West Coast Express program to discuss the Company of Heaven's desire that lightworkers come together and begin the work of building community, first among lightworkers themselves and later around the world. He confirms that there is a Reval, even though we've waited long, and that it's coming fairly soon. We know that ISIS has to be neutralized as a threat and other groups like Al Qaeda and the Ukrainian nationalists. Otherwise they would corral the money and use it to buy weapons. He discusses the situation of the homeless and those who are simply hanging on by their fingertips. He also discusses the case of lightworkers isolated and operating alone in their communities, and how to create, share and ensure sustainability.
Linda Dillon channels Archangel Michael and other guests from the Council of Love to provide spiritual teachings and guidance on co-creating the New Earth. Interviewed by Steve Beckow, editor of the Golden Age of Gaia. Produced by Graham Dewyea.
Music: Pachelbel's Canon and Mike Roland - Son of the Light

Welcome to "Happiness Index" on Blog Talk Radio.com. We continue our conversation, "Service: A Path to Happiness." As you listen, please feel free to join me and share your view on this very important topic.... Call (347) 539-5818 and let your voice be heard....
What is the meaning of service? Is service an international convention agreed by all people? Assuming one works as a cook, dishwasher, taxi driver, bank manager, City Council person, all these positions are paid service positions. Does one focus on the fruit of the service or the work? Why is true service, the road less travelled by most people?
Service as life’s purpose can be an impossible task if one is looking for a short cut to self-actualization.
What are your thoughts on Dr. Kings words on service? "Everybody can be great because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verbs agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love." Thank you again for tuning in to "A Happiness Index," found on www.blogtalkradio.com.
