    Grenadine Islands of Bequia and Tobago Cays

    in Travel

     


    This World Footprints show will journey to the Grenadines and unlock the mysteries of the sea in a way few seldom see or experience.  


    Our first stop takes us to Bequia (pronounced Beck-way), the largest of the Grenadines.  Fresh from a dive at Devils Table with her dive buddy Cathy Sachs of Dive Bequia, Tonya and Cathy will recount their dive and why Bequia offers an unusual diving experience.  Cathy will also share how this island has changed her life.


    Then we’ll visit Bequia’s Park Bay, home to the Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary, where a native retired skin-diving fisherman affectionately known as “Brother King”, has spent  more than a decade of his life to helping to conserve the endangered hawksbill turtle.  Brother King and his helpers monitor the beaches and nests here to protect mother turtles from poachers.  They also care for the baby hatchlings in the sanctuary during the turtles’ vulnerable years of life.


    Many of the hatchlings are released into a protective area just south of Bequia called Tobago Cays—our next stop.  Lesroy Noel is the Park Ranger for the Tobago Cays Marine Park which lies in the southern Grenadines.  The area comprises of five isles bordered by a giant horseshoe reef and teems with wildlife and wild sea turtles.  Few places on earth can match the unblemished natural beauty, tranquil waters and their ever-changing kaleidoscope of blues, greens and aquamarines.

    Olaf Tryggvesson

    in Religion

    Rebroadcast of the long running radio program, "The Ave Maria Hour", a presentation of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. www.AtonementFriars.org


    Olaf Tryggvesson - (born c. 964—died c. 1000), Viking king of Norway (995–c. 1000), much celebrated in Scandinavian literature, who made the first effective effort to Christianize Norway.


    Already a Christian, Olaf was confirmed at Andover (in modern Hampshire) in 994, with Ethelred, with whom he had been reconciled, as his godfather. Learning of the growing revolt against the Norwegian king Haakon the Great, Olaf returned to Norway and was accepted as king on Haakon’s death in 995. He forcefully imposed Christianity on the areas under his control, the coast and the western islands, but had little influence elsewhere. By commissioning missionaries and baptizing visiting dignitaries, Olaf was able to introduce Christianity to the Shetland, Faroe, and Orkney islands and to Iceland and Greenland. (Christianity was adopted by the Icelandic parliament [Althing] about 1000). 


    Olaf met his death in the Battle of Svolder (c. 1000) at the hands of the Danish king Sweyn I, the Swedish king Olaf Skötkonung, and Eric the Norwegian, earl of Lade.

    Until You Walk the Path, You Won't Know Where it Goes

    in Entertainment

    Until You Walk The Path, You Won’t Know Where it Goes will be chatting with musician, author, and President of Guitars Not Guns, Gregg Hammond on April 16.2015 at 1 pm eastern as he talks about how the arts makes positive changes in children and teenagers' lives.


    Musician, mentor, guitar teacher, philanthropist, and author born in DC. Gregg's family moved away from DC in the late 60's to escape the violence of the riots. The move landed him in the Florida Keys, where he grew up learning to live in the natural surroundings, teaching fishing, snorkeling, & exploring in the back country islands of the Keys. Hurricanes destroyed his guitar studio and then his home. With his dog and a guitar, he began a journey to find a larger purpose for his life. He traveled highways and mountain wilderness searching for his truth. Returning to DC in 2002, Gregg experienced violence in the streets. He and his father were randomly attacked by a gang of kids in '04. He was held at gunpoint by teens in '05, and nearly ambushed again by another gang in '06. These experiences compelled him to take action to make a difference. He founded GNG DC and volunteers his time wearing many hats within the charity to keep it going. He has witnessed miracles in the classroom. His vision includes bringing the world together, all playing the same song at the same time, featuring many of the Guitars Not Guns students up on the stages with great musicians like Paul McCartney, U2, and Ben Harper.

    Getting to know author Samantha Chase, Delaney Diamond, Laura Browning

    in Writing

    New York Times and USA Today Bestseller/contemporary romance writer Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan's Return, in November 2011. Although she waited until she was in her 40's to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well. With twenty-three titles currently to her name, she has no plans to slow down.


    Laura Browning after graduating from the University of Missouri School of Journalism,she worked for more than two decades in television news, both on camera and behind the scenes. It's a fascinating, exciting business. However, she always loved making up my own stories rather than reporting the stories of others. So, she changed gears and began teaching English. The altered pace allowed me to ramp up my love of writing fiction.


    Delaney was born and raised in the U.S. Virgin Islands. She has been an avid reader for as long as she can remember,  She readher first romance novel at the age of 11. Back then, they weren’t nearly as racy as they are now.


    She  wrote my first romance novel at the age of 14 and received rave reviews from my friends. She tapped out 89 pages on a typewriter and called it Captured Heart. Eighty-nine pages on a typewriter with no revisions. She couldn’t do that today. Thank goodness for Microsoft Word. In 2008 I started freelance writing, and in 2009 she gave fiction writing a try again, which resulted in my debut novel, The Arrangement.
