Figure skating is notoriously rife with drama and intrigue. Since its introduction to the Winter Olympics in 1924, figure skating has been one of the most popular, yet controversial competitions.
For the first time in the 106 years since the sport was introduced, figure skating will be a team event at the Sochi Games. In addition to their individual events, athletes from 10 countries will compete against each other as a squad, combining their efforts for a shot at a group medal in addition to individual crowns.
As Olympic events go, this one has the intrigue and secrecy of a Cold War spy novel. Countries have been guarding their playbooks like their national secrets for good reason.
Most recently Amanda won Battle of the Blades with retired NHLer and skating partner Scott Thornton.Amanda joins us to chat about her path to the Olympics and what it means to compete and sacrifice to get to the the top level of amateur sport in the world of figure skating.

Everyone loves figure skating!
“Every winter, millions of Canadians take to the ice, indoors and outdoors, in search of fun and fitness," says Skate Canada, the governing body for the national sport.
In our country, you'll see many figure skating events on television throughout the year - Skate Canada, Canadian championships, world championships, and more. Canadians Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir stole the limelight at the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010 and Canada’s strength as a figure skating nation is a proven result of not only this type of exceptional talent.
A group of skaters and coaches who have been willing to take risks and be part of the continuous re-definition of the sport continue to extend our expectation of what is possible.
Join the conversation as we pull back the curtain on The Inside Edge of Figure Skating with Elvis Stojko and PJ Kwong, CBC Figure Skating Correspondent and author of “Taking The Ice”.

• Will be able to maintain our highest level of world class competitors?
• Internal rivalry, between skaters, has gained bad press for the sport.
• Has controversial judging tainted competition?
• Will the respect for the sport ever return?

The most controversial figure in adult entertainment presents a no holds barred discussion about the future of the business. Rob's insight is spawned from having grown up around the adult biz, as his father owned several adult bookstores throughout Western New York.
Rob was the owner of Extreme Associates, which was at the time considered an outlaw in the biz because of its edgy content. Such fare is commonplace now.
Rob and his wife Lizzy Borden paid an extreme price for innovating adult, as both spent a year in prison on federal obscenity charges.
Rob also owned XPW - Xtreme Pro Wresting, which was one of the top wrestling organizations in the world, with a weekly national TV show, employing such superstars as Shane Douglas, X-Pac, Sabu and the late Chris Candido. XPW folded in 2003 after Extreme was indicted.
Join Rob and his friends for a lively 2 hours of explicit talk. No topic is off limits. No subject is taboo.
Oakland, CA – The prevailing belief that marriage is between a man and a woman has compelled many gays and lesbians to enter heterosexual marriages and even start families. When revelations such as these occur within committed relationships, the consequence is typically one of utter devastation for the straight spouse; it’s a combination of shock, disbelief, rejection, betrayal, and above all confusion.
“Of course we’re happy when a person can finally be himself or herself, but when he or she comes out of the closet, we straight spouses go into our own closet,” says Dr. Amity Pierce Buxton. “Straight spouses must go through the same process of coming to grips with who they are as did their lesbian or gay spouses. To do so, they need to know they’re not alone and they can get through it.”
Dr. Amity Pierce Buxton is the founder of the Straight Spouse Network, a non-profit, worldwide organization that provides support to straight spouses and couples as they navigate this emotional transition, as well as research-based information for spouses, couples, families and the community at large to understand the traumatic nature of these revelations and the underlying societal causes of the crisis.
Dr. Buxton first gained attention for her book The Other Side of the Closet: A Coming Out Crisis for Straight Spouses and Families. Her most recent book is Unseen, Unheard: Straight Spouses from Trauma to Transformation, which captures the voices of these spouses as they discover the truth, cope with their pain and figure out how to make decisions in the middle of all this emotional chaos.
“We, the Straight Spouse Network, need all the help we can to get the word out. We want every straight spouse to know we’re here,” says Dr. Buxton. “Hopefully by the next generation we’ll no longer be needed.”

Tonight we are talking about Cruising for love in 2015. Where should we go together to find love? What is the best month to take the trip? Who wants to take the trip? What events should be included in the schedule? How do we start to plan our getaway? I seriously need a holiday with my Global Dating Crew, who wants to join me?
On a cruise you don't have to stay on the ship. You can go rock-climbing, zip-lining, bowling, roller-blading, simulated surfing, ice skating, goofy golf, video games, first-run movies, wine tastings, live Broadway shows, live music, disco dancing and more. Once you get to ports of call you can add in SCUBA, snorkeling, water skiing, horseback riding, hiking and of course sightseeing and shopping.
A cruise is also a great time to chill out and it also offers plenty of relaxation time in your private stateroom, with a balcony in most cases, to read, watch movies and take a long bath and nap. You can also get spa treatments, work out in the fitness centers, read in the library, take classes in cooking, lifestyle, arts, computer tips, music, languages and more. If you are a party person there are parties almost every night with a variety of music from different genres.On a cruise you may even find the Man or Woman of your dreams....Whatever the outcome we will have an amazing experience!!!
Get ready to have a conversation about cruises and events in 2015.
Who wants to get on Ebony's Love Boat? Let's talk about it!!
