  • Who is The Dementia Whisperer?

    in Caregiving

    It has been said that life is a journey. If this is an apt metaphor, then dementia and Alzheimer’s comprise a divergent road with twists and turns that make navigation incredibly difficult.  The signposts are unclear and the markers confusing.  We may take a certain path and think it is the right one, only to find that the path has changed.


    Laura Wayman, the Dementia Whisperer is a guide to help you navigate this divergent road.  Based in California, Laura is a gerontologist, trainer, advocate for, and best-selling author on dementia disorders and care protocols.  Her methods are unique, compelling, and highly successful. 

    Tune in to find out everything you wanted to know about dementia-but were afraid to ask.

    Black Slavery Emancipation Research in Northern States - James W. Petty

    in History


    Join Genealogist Jim W. Petty for a discussion of his research on Black Slavery Emancipation Research in the Northern States and learn about the four categories of records that provide genealogical data on enslaved people in Northern states before the Civil War.

    Beginning in 2010, Jim became interested in African American Genealogy Studies upon following client genealogy into the Slave culture of Rhode Island.  Upon learning about the concept of Slavery in all States in America, and the eventual “gradual emancipation” of Black Slaves in each of the Northern States, he realized that a product of the emancipation movement was the creation of Slave birth records from as early as 1777, and continuing until national emancipation in 1865.  These records led to the keeping of other records relating to African Americans in the Northern States, which will hopefully become a resource for researchers throughout the United States.  

    Currently Jim has been collecting and abstracting Slave Birth Records for the State of New Jersey from 1804 to 1865, with the goal of publishing his findings during the 2015-2016 sesquicentennial of Slave Emancipation in the U.S. (1865-1866).  

    Jim has a degree in Genealogy Technology from Brigham Young University, and has been certified as a Genealogist and a Genealogy Records Searcher by the Board for the Certification of Genealogists (1984-2015), and accredited by the International Commission for the Accreditation of Genealogists (1972-2015).

    Short & Junk: My Research Process

    in Entertainment

    Arlinya asks: How do you focus your research for stories: Do you layout what you need for plot and hit each high point or do you start with one thing, research everything you can upfront and re-enter research stage later if needed?

    Writing Hitsuzen asks: When you are researching or world-building for a story, how do you determine when you have enough to start writing? I know that there is always going to be something that needs to be looked up or researched in the middle, but how do you know when you’ve got the basics that you need to start? Do you use a list? Is it part of your plotting process or separate? How much if it is character based? And how do you keep from going overboard and world-building into infinity? 

    Please note: Christian Kane Doesn't Work at my Library and it's sad.

    Traumatic Brain Injuries: The Importance of Research

    in Medicine

    This episode is being rebroadcast from Michele’s original radio show, “Your Life After Trauma.”

    Ignoring a head injury can be fatal. Death can be prevented if the injury is attended to such as in the cases of Natasha Richardson and Oxyclean spokesman, Billy Mays. In addition to the general population, veterans frequently suffer traumatic head injuries, which result in complications. It’s up to us to recognize the importance of managing a head trauma and knowing what to do in case something happens.

    This show is dedicated to providing information surrounding what happens during a head trauma and information that can help survivors know what to do in order to regain optimal health. Dr. David Petruska, board certified neurosurgeon at St. Mary’s Medical Center and Fellow of the American College of Surgeons joined Michele to discuss ‘Trauma & Head Injuries’ from a medical perspective. 

    Michele Rosenthal is a popular keynote speaker, award-winning author and post-trauma coach. Her shows combine scientific research, cutting-edge guests and personal stories that highlight the challenges and successes of deliberately deciding to change the direction of your life.
