    in Health

    You voted and we listened! Dial 347-850-8486 at 8p ET on Wednesday April 22nd to learn how to make the most of the health and wealth connection in your life during Root Cause Radio's Listerners' Choice podcast!


    As the health of the average American has improved over the past decade, some populations have continued to suffer an overwhelming burden of disease and average lower income as well.


    On the other side of the coin, we have several cultures that often promote sacrificing one's health to obtain specific financial milestones under the assumption that we will at least be able to afford whatever healthcare we need to get well once we are rich. We are covering all the health & wealth myths tonight PLUS giving you tools you can use no matter where you are in the process.


    SPECIAL GUESTS:


    Dr. Maxwell Nartey - Founder Of Symptometry

    Man Caused Disaster -- California's Blistering Drought

    in Politics Conservative

    It has Californians timing their showers, driving dirty cars and staring at brown lawns and empty swimming pools is a man caused disaster, according to critics, who say the Golden State’s misguided environmental policies allow much needed freshwater to flow straight into the Pacific.  The critics say California gets  plenty of water to meet its needs, if it were only managed properly.


    But the vast majority of the state’s 1,400 dams and reservoirs, in the two massive systems and smaller ones that supply southern California, were built well before the 1980s. Environmentalists have since stopped the construction of water storage and delivery systems through legal and political actions. They have also fought to ensure that captured water is released into streams and the ocean -- rather than the water delivery system -- in order to boost fish populations and dilute the salinity of the delta.


    Mark Baird is president of a Water Rights Group in Northern California called Scott Valley Protect Our Water. He is also the leading grassroots advocate and spokesman for The State of Jefferson.

    Brad Absher, Amanda Fish, 2 Couch Kid New Musics - Hank Mowery & Peter Novelli

    in Music

    SHOW # 266 - Live, Uncut & Uncensored Conversations With "Musicians You Should Know"


    Brad Absher is out of Houston, Texas and he and his band, Swamp Royale, have been a fixture on the Gulf Coast for over 20 years and he has appeared at the IBC getting to the finals. His new album is entitled Lucky Dog and Brad and I will explore his musical journey and speak about the album and where the band is headed next.


    I got to meet Amanda Fish at the IBC this past January.  She was in town to just meet people, play a little and let people know about her new album, Down In The Dirt.   She actually gave me a self-burned copy of the master of the album when we chatted On The Couch. I knew I had to bring her onto a Monday show and show some love, because the album is great.  In March, Vizztone picked her up, so if you don’t know about Samantha’s big sister now, you will soon!  And this is also the first set of siblings we have had on the show!


    Hank Mowery first sat on The Couch back in October of 2013.  He is back on a Couch Kid New Music Segment for his new release Excuses Plenty and we will talk about what Hank and The Hawktones have been up to since we last spoke and share this hot off the presses release with you.


    Back in July of 2014, Peter Novelli came and sat On The Couch for a Couch Kid New Music Segment and shared PRE-MASTERS for his upcoming album, St. Amant Sessions.  Well, the album is finally done and Peter had his CD Release in the Dominican Republic last week and this week we get to share the finished product and maybe even compare a song or two from back in July!

    UNBREAKABLE - A Story of Hope and Healing in Haiti

    in Entertainment

    UNBREAKABLE - A Story of Hope and Healing in Haiti


    In the late afternoon of January 12, 2010, an otherwise ordinary day turned into a nightmare, forever changing the tranquil yet volatile nation of Haiti.


    A magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck the land that day devastating an already impoverished nation. It wiped out entire villages, and collapsed buildings including the country’s government headquarters. Hundreds of thousands lost their lives, more than one million were displaced, and tens of thousands were injured—including countless children and young people who suffered the loss of limbs.


    Two American organizations stepped in. Despite corruption in the country and the threat of failure, Project Medishare set up clinics to aid the victims, and the Knights of Columbus, an international charitable organization, provided the funding necessary to ensure that prosthetic limbs would be made available for every child amputee. But this was only the beginning.


    A small group of earthquake victims became emboldened to defy deeply entrenched Haitian stereotypes against people with disabilities. They formed Team Zaryen, an amputee soccer team that has transformed victims into beacons of hope, creating real possibilities for those attempting to rebuild their lives from the rubble of the 2010 earthquake. Team Zaryen’s dream to give back to those whose efforts helped them get back on their feet stretches all the way to Washington, offering help and inspiration to wounded American veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Travel the World: Visiting Luxury in Turks & Caicos at the Sands at Grace Bay

    in Travel

    Travel to Providenciales, Turks & Caicos with Travel The World on the Communities Digital News Hour.


    Old Man Winter hit the east coast of the U.S. with a vengeance this winter, which means the Caribbean beckons. The Turks & Caicos are within easy reach from the U.S., especially the Atlantic coast, and the Sands at Grace Bay is an ideal getaway to escape the common cold.


    No imagination is required to see how this lovely 114-suite resort in the up-and-coming Turks & Caicos Islands derives its name. From the moment you cast your eyes upon the seemingly endless expanse of powdery white beach that seeps gently into crystal-clear turquoise and ultra-marine waters, you are beguiled by timeless rhythms that wash over you and cast your fate to the winds.


    The Turks & Caicos are situated in the British West Indies south of the Bahamas and north of the Dominican Republic. The archipelago of 41 islands and cays is less than 600 miles from Miami and is accessible by air from Florida in about 80 minute
