In this pre recorded show I talk to "Joint Information Center" about the current situation in Santa Barbara and the oil spill. Make sure to be prepared to take down the website and Phone number you may call to volunteer or help!
This Oil Spill has affected so many people and our wildlife in so many ways and they are working round the clock to help however they can ..It was enough to prompt Gov. Jerry Brown to declare a state of emergency for Santa Barbara County.
The cleanup could last months, officials said. For now, currents, tides and winds make the oil plume "a moving target" as it drifts offshore, said U.S. Coast Guard Capt. Jennifer Williams.
"It's a continual effort," added U.S. Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer David Mosley. "It's not something that we can say, 'Yeah, we are hitting it out of the park,' but it's something our guys are dedicated to."
The size of the spill, which began contaminating California's beaches on Tuesday, is equivalent to the volume of water the average American residence uses in a year.
As of Thursday, vessels had skimmed 7,770 gallons of oily water from the ocean, McMichael said.

Historians and archaeologist have confirmed that the first people in the Americas were black. Does this mean the indigenous Americans are black? Yes. Although this information has been kept from us, our true identity is starting to unfold. For years we’ve been told that we arrived to the Americas by slave ship, when in fact most of us were already here. Is it possible that the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade is a fictitious story used to trick indigenous black people out of their homelands and history?“…Omission, not distortion, is the far more serious culprit in hiding the story of the black Indians of America.” Williams Lorenz Katz, Black Indians.Many black people who trace their heritage will not find any African slavery in their family. It’s also not a coincidence that many of us blacks have been told by an elder in our family that, “We have Indian in our blood.” There were no ‘red Indians’ until the colonizers began mixing with the indigenous blacks. Below is a short list of black native tribes:The Washitaw of the Louisiana/Midwest
The Yamasee of the South East
The Cherokee Indians
The Blackfoot Indians
The Pequot and Mohegans of Connecticut
The Black Californians (Calafians) (CAL in CALifornia literally means BLAK, after the name of the Great Mamma KALi / Queen KALifa)
The Olmecs of Mexico
The Darienite of Panama
The Seminole Indians
The Creek Indians
The Chata/Choctaw IndiansMoundville Archeological Park, located near Birmingham, AL is an example of how there has been an attempt to suppress the original identity of the Native Americans. Since the early 1970s, the park’s museum had statues that depicted the Native Americans as black people. In 2010, those statues were replaced with white Native Americans.

The Tigers finally beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-2 to salvage one in the 3-game series at Comerica Park. They face the Houston Astros next. The Astros lead the AL West with a 27-14 record 5 1/2 games ahead of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
The wait is over. Mike Babcock decides to leave the Detroit Red Wings and sign an 8-year, $50-million contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs, and AHL Grand Grapids Griffins head coach Jeff Blashill is the "leading candidate" to be the next head coach, according to general manager Ken Holland.
His Griffins will take on the Utica Comets in the Western Conference Finals in the Calder Cup Playoffs, after the Comets shut out the Oklahoma City Barons 1-0 in Game 7 of the Conference Semifinals.
Wednesday, May 20. 2015 Stephanie interviews Author Vicki Green. You can find her on Amazon here: http://amzn.to/1EuWob4.
Vicki Green grew up in Overland Park, Kansas and currently resides in Olathe, Kansas. Along with her husband and two teenage boys, they share their home with their fur babies. She enjoys spending time with her family.
Vicki enjoys reading Romance books which is what inspired her to begin writing. As a reader, she loves being taken away, to some other place and time, falling in love with the characters. She has always admired Author's dedication and hard work. She had a dream that played out for over a year, came home one day after work and decided to put it on a word document to see how it read and that became 'My Savior Forever', the beginning of her Forever Series, her first book, and that's where it all began.
Barry Bonds, Jeff Kent kept out of Hall of Fame again
OK, here’s the main thing about numbers in baseball: They all require context. No one could reasonably argue that, say, Mariners first baseman Corey Hart is a more dominant offensive player than Hall of Famer Frank “Home Run” Baker simply because Hart has more career home runs and a higher OPS. We know Baker played in the sport’s deadball era, so we adjust our standards accordingly.
And Bonds stands as one of the sport’s greatest hitters ever in any context. By the park- and league-adjusted stat OPS+, Bonds ranks third all-time behind only Babe Ruth and Ted Williams. It’s perfectly fair to debate whether Bonds’ 763 home runs are more impressive than Hank Aaron’s 755, since Bonds played at a time when lots of guys hit lots of homers. But it’s silly to dismiss all those homers entirely. They all contributed to his teams’ chances of victory.
3. It would be unfair to clean players
This one’s tricky. One of the great shames of baseball’s so-called steroids era is that there were certainly guys who held themselves to higher standards than the league did and refused to take PEDs, and many of those players likely missed out on roster spots or big paydays or places in the record books because they were unwilling to compromise. And that stinks, no doubt.
Problem is, we have no sure way of knowing who they were. This aims by no means to besmirch the reputations of players like Glavine, Maddux and Thomas. But we can never say for sure that no member of the 2014 Hall of Fame class ever juiced. We know only that they successfully convinced us they played clean. And now that the Hall’s doors are open to players from their era, it will become increasingly tricky and disturbing if we keep trying to guess which guys did what without concrete evidence.
