    Devastation in Oklahoma

    in Psychology

    As we are all aware, a massive 200 mph tornado ripped through the Oklahoma City area on Monday afternoon May 20, 2013 and left a 20-mile path of destruction in its wake. At least 51 people were killed includng at least 20 children.   Rescue crews are continually searching for survivors in the wreckage.  The recovery efforts are in the very beginning stages.    Join me tonight at 10:30 PM on a very special episode of Own Your Life as I delve into the devastation of the the Oklahoma tornadoes and discuss how the recovery efforts will be vital for that area.    I will also discuss the psychological reactions to a disaster and how volunteers, professional, and emergency service personnel cope with such tragedy.   I will explain children's reactions to crisis as well as the role of a disaster mental health specialist in devastated areas.  Finally, I will explore how the media can both help and hinder the recovery efforts.

    Goodbye, Sábado Gigante: The Manero Pop Podcast, Episode 4

    in Pop Culture

    You've probably heard the news by now: the variety TV show Sábado Gigante will end his record-breaking 53-year run on the air come September.


    The show started in Chile in 1962, but after moving to Miami in 1986, it became an institution of Latino television in the United States, and a cultural touchstone of the immigrant experience.


    But Sábado Gigante was not free of controversy: even when the immediate reactions after the news of the show's cancelation broke were cries of "devastation," as they days went a very different reaction came to light. Several critics expressed their hatred of a show they considered "racist and misogynistic."


    Here, José Manuel Simián and Marcelo Báez discuss the impact of the Sábado Gigante on Latino pop culture, and interview blogger Laura Martínez and former member of the show's Clan Infantil, Paz Zárate.


    UPDATE: During his interview with Laura Martínez, José Manuel Simián made an implicit reference to Univisión's host Fernando Fiore, who is no longer with the network.

    CUTV News Radio spotlights Catherine Abbott of Heal After Divorce

    in Motivation

    Vancouver, BC – Few life experiences compare to the emotional devastation of divorce. Many women find themselves stuck in their cycle of despair, but there are ways to move forward and to have an even better life after divorce.


    Catherine Abbott is the founder of Heal After Divorce, a coaching practice dedicated to supporting women to move forward with their lives after divorce.


    “Loss and grief are natural when coping with divorce or a relationship breakup,” says Catherine. “It is normal to have emotional suffering when someone you love leaves or even if you are the one initiating leaving the relationship.”


    Catherine was inspired to create Heal After Divorce following the dissolution of her marriage.


    “The ending of my marriage forced me to reconsider my life," says Catherine. "There were opportunities for me. I got to see myself in a new light. I decided it was important to support other women through this process so they can learn these techniques and find ways to express what they need to express in appropriate ways to move forward and heal.”


    Divorce can be extremely isolating. We all have friends and family we can talk to about our divorce, but of course we’ll only tell them certain things. Our deep, dark secrets are our own and they’re not as easy to share. As a coach, Catherine is there to support you to see there are ways to move forward.


    “The saddest thing is when I talk to a woman who has been divorced for 10 years and she’s still angry and still hurting,” says Catherine. “As soon as someone commits to wanting to change, that’s the first step, so I’m grateful to support other women on their journey.”

    Nate Boyer, Texas, Long Snapper and Green Berets Special Forces

    in Football

    Nate Boyer is one of the most unique NFL Draft Prospects available in the 2015 NFL Draft. He spent the last three seasons long snapping for the Longhorns. He also handled punt-snapping duties in 2013-14. 


    The background of how Boyer got to Texas and where he wishes to go since he left is one of the better stories you will come across. Waking up on September 11, 2001 and witnessing the horrific devastation inspired Boyer to spend nearly a decade serving our country on the front-lines.


    He returned from several tours of duty to walk-on at Univsersity of Texas and eventually become the long snapper. Add in the fact that Boyer is training to become an NFL long snapper at the age of 34 makes his impressive and inspirational story that much more to take an interest in. 


    Join host Bo Marchionte and special guest Nate Boyer on the College2Pro.com Players' Platform Show.

    SATURDAY WAKE-UP CALL - Let miracles replace all grievances.

    in Spirituality

    From  a Course in Miracles   by the Foundation for Inner Peace:


    Lesson 78


    Let miracles replace all grievances.


    Perhaps it is not yet quite clear to you that each decision that you make is one between a grievance and a miracle. Each grievance stands like a dark shield of hate before the miracle it would conceal. And as you raise it up before your eyes, you will not see the miracle beyond. Yet all the while it waits for you in light, but you behold your grievances instead. Today we go beyond the grievances, to look upon the miracle instead. We will reverse the way you see by not allowing sight to stop before it sees. We will not wait before the shield of hate, but lay it down and gently lift our eyes in silence to behold the [Light] of God......The body's eyes are closed, and as you think of him/[her] who grieved you, let your mind be shown the light in him/[her] beyond your grievances.


    Section 13. What is a Miracle?


    A miracle is a correction. It does not create, nor really change at all. It merely looks on devastation, and reminds the mind that what it sees is false. It undoes error,....A miracle contains the gift of grace, for it is given and received as one. And thus it illustrates the law of truth the world does not obey, because it fails entirely to understand its ways. A miracle inverts perception which was upside down before, and thus it ends the strange distortions that were manifest. Now is perception open to the truth. Now is forgiveness seen as justified.

    KIM GOLDMAN: WHY I CAN'T FORGIVE O.J. SIMPSON

    in Entertainment

    Wednesday, April 1, 3 pm ET, tune in to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show for a conversation you won’t soon forget. Joining Halli at her table is Kim Goldman author of CAN’T FORGIVE! 


    Don’t tell Kim Goldman she needs to find closure. Don’t ask her to forgive and forget. When Kim Goldman was just 22, her older brother, Ron Goldman was brutally murdered by unconvicted football legend and film star O.J. Simpson. Ron and Kim were very close, and her devastation was compounded by the shocking not guilty verdict in what was to be called The Trial of the Century. Now twenty years later, Kim Goldman shares what she calls her “twenty year battle” with O.J. Simpson in her book CAN’T FORGIVE.


    Counseled by friends, strangers and even Oprah to “find that closure,” Kim chose a different route. She chose to fight and that fight would be subject of tabloid fodder now nearing a quarter of a century. Repeatedly, Kim and her family pursued Simpson by every legal means possible. Foiled over and again, they ultimately achieved a small measure of justice.  


    Closure? Who says? Let’s talk! Kim Goldman’s fight with O.J. Simpson on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, April 1st, 3 pm ET. For more information visit Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.
