Join us Tuesday night May 26, 2015 at 9pm eastern as we welcome Mark Hudak to the show! Mark took Environmental Management as a vocation in high school.. Mark has furthered his knowledge by a strong urge to learn about every plant and animal in Ohio by self education. He has been an avid hunter and fisherman all his life with many exploits and accomplishments. He first read and learned about Bigfoot at a young age and was influenced by the movie "The Legend of Boggy Creek". During his growth, he never thought that there were Bigfoot in Ohio, just the Pacific Northwest, until sixteen years ago when his brother, two friends, and he had an encounter in Monroe/Belmont counties. They were paralleled by at least two Bigfoot for over a mile going to their hunting stands then screamed at by one of them. It was truly a life changing experience for him. He has read over eighty books on the subject, poured over countless websites, and has been a guest on five internet radio shows now. He has been actively researching now for over sixteen years.

This week we will re-visit one of our most listened to shows...ADDICTIONS!!
Do you have addictions to alcohol, drugs, eating, gambling, shopping, sex/love, co-dependency, etc.?
Been to 12 step programs, counseling, took various meds but still relapsing? There may be an answer!
On May 5, 2015at 8 pm (Eastern) Dr. Jess Armine will discuss addiction and relapse and the common neuro-physiological basis for addictive behavior as well as the genetic polymorphisms that lead to relapse. He will discuss how consistent cravings, "JONESING", or "white knuckling" are what lead up to relapse. Until now, The Build Up To Relapse has been treated predominantly with psychosocial modalities. The physiological causations are downplayed or remain un-attended. Based on the research of Kenneth Blum, PhD & Bill Downs PhD, these physiological and genetic imbalances are key causes of the cravings that build to relapse. Pioneers like, Dr Ben Lynch, Shawn Bean, h and Dr. Jess Armine have furthered the genetic/epigenetic portion of this research
This week Dr. Armine discusses the physiology of all types of addictions, the genetic contributions, and the new non-drug methods of addiction treatment NAAAT (NeuroAdaptive Amino Acid Therapy) and how combined psychological and physiological treatment gives the best prognosis for long term recovery.
READ THIS PLEASE!!!: Guys, I am a great supporter of the 12 Step Programs and other forms of conseling. NAAAT is to treat the physiological "part" of addictions and is best utilized IN ADDITION TO, NOT INSTEAD OF the 12 Step Programs, etc.
Join Us and Learn! There will be a .pdf and time for Q&A. See you then!!

In November, Barack Obama signed an Executive Order which essentially signified amnesty to upwards of 5 million illegal immigrants; a move pretty much, was of no surprise.
But, this month, U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hannon issued an injunction, staying the Order, where he agreed that 26 states who filed the suit, could suffer a financial burden.
As expected, the Obama Administration appealed.
In a statement read before the House, in its Department of Homeland Security (DHS) hearings, Jamiel Shaw, gave a powerful testimony which covered two bases; the devastating impact of an out of control immigration policy and the sincerity of those who've furthered the mantra, "black lives matter".
In 2008, his son, Jamiel Andre Shaw II, was murdered by an illegal immigrant from Mexico.
Mr. Shaw asked the critical question, DO BLACK LIVES REALLY MATTER, OR DOES IT MATTER, ONLY IF YOU'RE SHOT BY A WHITE PERSON OR WHITE POLICEMAN....?
We will review both topics and the perceived interconnect ability between the two, which frankly, is part of an ongoing discourse that has transpired on Critical Discourse, sans the illegal immigration aspect.
We also may cover the frustration that former NFL-player, Kermit Alexander has been dealing with, in light of the murderer of his mother, sister and nephews, has yet to be executed, despite the verdict and sentence.
BLACK LIVES MATTER!
BUT, DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE IT?
