Tonight's special guest is Connie Valentine, M.S. from Davis, CA, a survivor and activist representing the CA Protective Parents Association where the mission is to protect children from incest and family violence through research, advocacy and education. They work primarily with non-offending parents in custody disputes when children report physical or sexual abuse. Connie writes, "I am a survivor of extreme abuse. I was amnestic for all of it until middle age but had many of the symptoms of a trauma survivor. After a long arduous recovery, I am finally happy, joyous and free." And she's dedicating her self to this worthy issue. "Parental alienation groups are not what they seem," she says. "The term is used to strip children from mothers trying to protect the children from physical and sexual abuse, and give the children to the abusers both in family court and CPS. They are the exact opposite of real child protection." A message on the CPPA web site explains, "You may be told that you have to "accept" the court's decision when your child is placed with the identified abuser. No moral citizen should be expected to accept what is wholly unacceptable: the willful sacrifice of a child to a life of rape and/or battery." It concludes, " On our website you will find information, case histories, articles, resources, research and links to other websites. You will also find ideas, a growing community of protective parents, friendships, and a glimmer of hope in this dark world in which you find yourself."

We talk about people a lot, yet we talk about souls very little. It's a huge leap in thought, in feeling and justifying we are doing at time to one another when we call each other souls and not people. What difference does it mean in everyday life what we call each other and how we view each other and how we treat one another? Do we reduce ourselves by simply saying I am a person and is saying I am a person only half the story? Crazy thought, yet a huge shift in how we build our lives and the relationships that we have in our lives. Tune in and Join in on the Conversation Tomorrow Morning at 5:30 AM, PST!
In 1991 we started had ImplantableMedicalDevices; PaceMakers and defibrillators. Creations that supplement the heart by artificial means. Soon after that, we developed forms of prosthetics that gave way to artificial limbs. Bionics became the next step in this invasive technological growth. Allowing various versions of body parts to be made that would, yet again, supplement the human body. Mind-to-body microchips that create a response from neurons to receivers. Recently, an operation was carried where they transplanted not only the head of a monkey, but also the head of a man onto a new body. These are things we're capable today. Who's to say we're not capable of creating a synthetic body, compatible with an exterior natural form? These are marvelous technologies nonetheless, but they enhance the 'Human Condition' and right now our whole planet is in a turmoil. What happens when requirements of Life-Extension technologies are the norm for service? An immortal Frankenstein like arm, patched together by various technologies to sustain what we call 'life'.For now, our natural bodies can handle the Pre-Human world; This is Earth 1, the original design. What's happening now, with the pollution of our air, the toxification of our food and the modification of our genetics, is that we are being aggressively converted. As radical as the notion sounds, explain animals growing extra appendages after eating GMO food after a two year process, or children being irradiated and malformed after a town is shot up with Uranium? These are lasting effects on our planet that won't end in our life time. These are artificial evolutions that require synthetic solutions, and because of this we are evolving. And if we're not being resuscitated by AutomaticInternalDefibrillators. We are being soft killed by these man-made poisons, and their solutions are more chemicals with the involvement of technology.

The show today will be about PrEP and I really want many of you to take part in this discussion. Join us to bring awareness to the community. Historically, the HIV/AIDS epidemic has affected more men than women. However, if new HIV infections continue at their current rate worldwide, women with HIV may soon outnumber men with HIV. HIV infection impacts a growing number of women in Illinois each year. Nearly 7,000 women in Illinois are currently known to be living with HIV and/or AIDS. Many hundreds of other women are probably living with HIV even though they are unaware of their own infection. HIV/AIDS disproportionately impacts African-American women in Illinois and the United States. Nationally, HIV infection is the leading cause of death for African-American women between the ages of 25 and 34. In Illinois, the number of HIV cases among African-American women continues to climb. Roughly 68 percent of Illinois women living with HIV are African American, while African Americans only make up 15 percent of the Illinois population. Caucasian women account for 16 percent of Illinois women living with HIV, while the Caucasian population represents more than 73 percent of Illinois residents. Latina women represent roughly 11 percent of the HIV/AIDS cases in women, while 13 percent of the Illinois population is Latino. Roughly 4 percent of women with HIV are from Native American, Asian, Pacific Islander and other communities. Women in their 30s are the most likely to be living with HIV/AIDS, and almost all Illinois women living with HIV are between the ages of 20 and 50.

Queen Mother of Afro Beat Sandra Izsadore along with cohost Tanya McLain-Pruitt discusses The Growing Homeless Population in America.
Jeremy Jones, also known as JC DaSINsation was born with promise. Although he was plagued by typical adversity endured by many bi-products of ‘single parent’ households, he faced the odds, confronted the odds, and eventually triumphed over the odds. One of two children born into chaos and less fortunate, poverty stricken circumstances he was submerged into a life of adversity and hardship. Often, he and his older sister were left unattended for days at a time, lacking the essential elements of survival and nourishment. Although his roots are traced back to Petersburg, Virginia where his mother pushed him into this world on the living room of his aunt’s home; shortly thereafter, they relocated to Atlanta, Georgia to reside with his maternal grandparents. In 1986, a year after arriving, his mother was found deceased in the West End district from an apparent drug overdose. With losing his mother to death and his father serving consecutive life sentences, he was left to discover his own identity and sift through life’s tumultuous journey on a quest for self-discovery. Along the way he encountered the good, the bad, and the very ugly aspects of growing up without a mother, a father or an encouraging family structure. During this time the only viable outlet he had was music. Gangster Rap along with Rhythm and Blues(R&B) were his surrogate parents. From NWA to Anita Baker, he absorbed both ends of the spectrum. While being an avid fan of the culture practically his entire life, only in recent years has he began to pursue his passion for music and its creative process. Continuing to perfect and hone his craft, he also has thespian ambitions. Determined to become an admirable human being he remains humbled with humility. Seeking to enlighten, educate and entertain, Jc DaSINsation maintains a full load juggling music, acting, family as well as ensuring a stable environment is kept.
