    Cutting Edge Research in Geriatrics - UNT Health Science Center

    in Women

    In today’s segment, I’ll be joined by Drs. Janice Knebl and Meharvan Singh from the University of North Texas Health Science Center.  We’ll be talking about how research has identified the potential for hormones like estrogen and progesterone as being important in maintaining a healthy brain. However, this topic is not without its controversy, so my guests will also be addressing factors that may predict whether hormones may or may not be good for the brain. In addition, we will also talk about what ongoing research is being done to ensure that doctors provide menopausal and post-menopausal women with as many viable options as possible to help maintain health and wellness as they age.

    Mary Diaz and Human Conflicts Org. Demand More Paroles, 03/20/15

    in Politics Progressive

    At 3pmEST on Fridays, we present Mary Diaz on the "Huaman Rights Demand" radio broadcast. Mary is a prisoner activist who advocates for paroles and pardons. Please call (347)857-3293 to speak on air. You can also listen by computer live or hear the archived tape 24/7. Diaz is affiliated with "Human Conflicts," where "LET MY PEOPLE GO" is the motto. Mary lives in Florida, which had over 5,200 inmates who were parole eligible in 2014 but released fewer than 20. Prison investors on the Pardons and Parole Board are a barrier to freedom for many rehabilitated inmates. 

    Diaz said Alabama's Pardon and Parole Board has become a trendsetter for the rest of the country regarding releases. In Alabama during 2014, the Board considered 6,647 paroles, of which 2,237 were granted. The Board also granted 657 pardons of 798 pardons heard and processed 522 voter rights restorations. That is real progress against mass incarceration. Some of the change may be credited to a lawsuit by the Southern Poverty Law Center against the Alabama prison system.

    "Presently, Maynard Cooper & Gale is fighting a Southern Poverty Law Center lawsuit that claims the health care provided to Alabama's inmates is inadequate and unconstitutional. Correctional health care firm Corizon is paying the firm to fight the lawsuit on behalf of the state due to a provision in its $224 million contract with the state. In total, the state has spent $1.86 million in taxpayer money to fight prison lawsuits in the past four years." (Report by AL(dot) com). That sum likely also includes a lawsuit by the ‎ACLU for segregating inmates with HIV. Righteous lawsuits litigated in just courts can make justice system reform mandatory.

During this show we'll be focusing on the recently mandated health insurance in the US. Certainly some people are glad to have insurance, others happy to get subsidies financed by "the Rich".

Will it meet it's promise to slow the increase in health care costs? What are the benefits for us? What are the negatives?

    Mary Diaz of Human Conflicts Org Demands More Pardons and Paroles, Part 3

    in Politics Progressive

    "Human Rights Demand" presents Mary Diaz and Human Conflicts Organization. Mary is a prisoner activist who advocates for paroles and pardons. Tell us your opinion by calling (347)857-3293, or you can listen by computer live or hear the archived tape 24/7. Diaz is affiliated with "Human Conflicts," and "LET MY PEOPLE GO" is the motto. Mary lives in Florida, which had over 5,200 inmates who were parole eligible in 2014 but released fewer than 25. Prison investors on Pardons and Paroles Boards may be a barrier to freedom for many rehabilitated inmates. 

    Diaz said Alabama's Pardon and Parole Board has become a trendsetter for the rest of the country regarding releases. In Alabama during 2014, the Board considered 6,647 paroles, of which 2,237 were granted. The Board granted 657 pardons of 798 pardons heard and processed 522 voter rights restorations. That is real progress against mass incarceration. Some of the change may be credited to the Southern Poverty Law Center's lawsuit against the Alabama prison system.


    Diaz makes a human rights demand: Either release eligible prisoners after they serve their minimum sentences, or show why their parole would risk community safety. Attention: 20 to life does NOT mean life. That sentence means offenders serve at least 20 years and then are released unless there is a good reason why not. Prison profits is NOT an acceptable reason to keep parole-eligible men and women incarcerated. Taxpayers simply cannot afford it, and most are not interested in having a rehabilitated, harmless, geiatric prison population just to enrich prison investors.


    Power concedes nothing without a demand; it never has, and it never will. ~Frederick Douglass

Along this path she has made some amazingly powerful discoveries which we can all use for our own self-empowerment. Today Maggi, shares with us the basics of "How to Fuel Your Self Empowerment," using simple but ancient methods and oh- so very powerful as to which she can attest.
