Mike Brenhaug interviews Tom Dowd on eTALKS to discuss Tom's new book Displacement Day. Tom Dowd is a graduate of the University of Delaware with a Communication degree. Tom is a prize-winning speaker, award-winning author,and trainer—all spurred by his need to be more than a painfully shy and introverted individual on a rollercoaster ride of success.
Tom received the call nobody wanted: “We’re downsizing.” After unexpectedly losing his full-time job, Tom landed in a better place in just 59 days using methods from his coaching and training. He is now a VP at one of the larger financial institutions in North America. In 2011, he started his own side business “Thomas Dowd Professional Development & Coaching” where he continues to use the lessons learned on his climb up the corporate ladder to help people creatively find ways to differentiate themselves in the workplace and to find their own individual paths toward success. The mantra is “Transform into who you really want to be.” On what was thought to be a typical work day, author Thomas Dowd received The Call Nobody Wants: “We’re downsizing.” In the midst of an economic downturn, the author had some choices to make in how to most effectively approach the new journey. Displacement Day is for anyone who has ever had the unfortunate—or fortunate—task of finding a job.

By the time I was 17 years old, I had lived in 16 different homes. My father was in the military, and there was order and structure in the process. Still, it was a challenge. Every place I moved, I felt displaced and had to establish myself and my energy in my new environment. What about vets, foster kids, single moms, laid off workers, retirees and small business owners? Our society hands them “problems” to solve on an everyday basis. ?So what is a home? It is not just a physical dwelling. For some, home means being part of a heritage or tradition; for others it signifies a spiritual space. Sometimes it is a place found only in the mind, or in the heart. For a few, home simply means feeling right within one’s own skin. Finding Home is a book about people who are searching for, or trying to keep, a home, and about people who have come off their center and how they have righted themselves. Sally Ooms has discovered that such people are doing more than just coping. They are innovators in their own lives. Join me for this deep look at how Americans prevail over displacement.
Mahshid Farhoudi is a figurative painter who explores issues of identity, displacement and belonging through her work.
"My art practice draws from Iranian and occidental sources. Both figurative and architectural elements are central to my painting. Although aware of new trends in figuration, I have been appropriating symbols, icons and imagery from my culture and from my Canadian context to affirm my position to issues that I consider important. The relationship between my painted figures and their architectural contexts creates a dialogue within the work. It is this textural element that is of great interest to me. There is a direct relationship between the subject of my paintings and the techniques I employ."
This time Andrew speaks with New York based writer and provocateur Matthew Blair. Using the work of Gordon Matta-Clark as a philosophical starting point our discussion will range from earth displacement projects, city walkouts, and demolishing the Guggenheim to tabloid scandals and hooptie aesthetics. Plus the greatist video he's ever taken.

Theme: One corner at a time.
Do you feel like you need to BEG your partner, your parents or your providers for things you want?
Some people may be financially dependent, but the relationship should not create a posture of begging on your part. A respectful relationship built on love can be negotiated to where you feel heard and free to ask for your wants without a sense of fear, or the need to beg.

Financial Independence is a dream for most adults, but graduates, under-employed wives, the disabled, and senior citizens have the greatest displacement from this reality unless they take strategic action.

Atlantis Beneath the Ice
• Reveals how the earth’s crust shifted in 9600 BCE, dragging Atlantis into the polar zone beneath miles of Antarctic ice
• Examines ancient yet highly accurate maps, including the Piri Reis map of 1513, which reveals a pre-glacial Antarctica
• Shows how myths of floods and disaster from around the world all point to a common source
In this completely revised and expanded edition of When the Sky Fell, Rand and Rose Flem-Ath show that 12,000 years ago vast areas of Antarctica were free from ice and home to the kingdom of Atlantis, a proposition that also elegantly solves the mysteries of ice ages and mass extinctions, the simultaneous worldwide rise of agriculture, and the source of devastating prehistoric climate change. Expanding upon Charles Hapgood’s theory of earth crust displacement, which was championed by Albert Einstein, they examine ancient yet highly accurate world maps, including the Piri Reis map of 1513, and show how the earth’s crust shifted in 9600 BCE, dragging Atlantis into the polar zone where it now lies beneath miles of Antarctic ice. From the Cherokee, Haida, and Okanagan of North America to the earliest records of Egypt, Iran, Mexico, and Japan, they reveal that ancient myths of floods, lost island paradises, and visits from advanced godlike peoples from all corners of the globe all point to the same worldwide catastrophe that resulted in Atlantis’s demise.
