    Filmmakers Phil Falcone & John De Meo – Co Producers of "Joe’s War"

    in Radio

    Next up on my Filmmakers Series is Phil Falcone and John De Meo, who co-produced and wrote the film Joe’s War. The movie also marks the directing debut of Falcone. Premiered at the Garden State Film Festival, Joe’s War is the compelling story of Joe Caruso, a young Marine who attempts to return to his previous life upon returning home from the War on Terror. Watch the trailer here. The movie vividly depicts the daily struggles of facing up to and dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and the devastating effects on family and friends. Upon his return home, now former Marine Sergeant Caruso attempts to seamlessly fall back into his routine with the help of his family and friends, all the while coping with his life changing overseas battle. Joe continues on a downward spiral, and in an attempt to regain control of his life, he enlists the help of some new friends and the aid of a therapist played by Armand Assante. Joe's War presents a realistic view of life with PTSD, and the film has many scenes that are difficult to watch. PTSD isn’t exclusive to the military; individuals with other mental illnesses are at higher risk, and women are twice as likely to develop PTSD than men. Approx 55% of US military personnel returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan seek health care services from the VA. In 2013, the VA spent about $600 million for PSTD treatment. Even though veterans are only 7% of the population, they account for 20% of suicides. And this needs to stop now. After the interview, please check After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for more info.

    Treating depression and anxiety--can we get past the trial and error approach

    in Health

    Speakers:


    Patrick J. McGrath, M.D. Professor of Clinical Psychiatry


    Sarah Fader, Founder & CEO, Stigma Fighters


    Despite years of progress, the stigma of having a mood disorder like depression, or an anxiety disorder like panic disorder is still considerable.  People experience disbelief from family, co-workers, and friends that this is a medical problem rather than a matter of needing to exert willpower and fortitude.  Sarah Fader and her organization, Stigma Fighters are working hard to address this issue for people with these disorders and will discuss her advocacy work in this regard.  Even when a mood or anxiety disorder has been diagnosed and is being treated, unfortunately selection of the correct treatment is still a matter of trial and error, with the attendant delay and frustration.  Dr. Patrick McGrath is engaged in a pioneering study, funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, called EMBARC, which seeks to make the first steps toward a future where testing will help predict which treatment will be most effective.  Ms. Fader and Dr. McGrath will discuss these efforts to assist those having these disorders."

    Freedom to Speak: No Censorship in Social Media campaign continues...

    in Politics Progressive

    American Vernacular is BANNED for 30 days once again from Facebook.

    This recent ban highlights how social media platforms have the ability to restrict free enterprise, deflate the entrepreneurial spirit, suppress free speech and expression with no ability to appeal the decision except in "some" cases. What is the criteria for this form of net neutrality aka preferential treatment? And should a publicly traded, American-based company be allowed to use its discretion to abridge the speech of its users? When does a company have the right to restrict speech? Our crusade against the form of "cyberbulling" to silence dissent is a cause we need to be addressing and what we, the people, must do about it while we still can. Join the movement and let your voice be heard in support of freedom of speech and expression for all people.

    Please visit http://www.americanvernacular.org/americanvernacular/AV_Freedom_to_Speak.html to make a donation, spread the word and help us fund our documentary, Freedom of Speak: No Censorship In Social Media.
