    Urologist and CPP Specialist, Dr. Jeannette Potts, Discusses Male Pelvic Pain

    in Health

    Urologist and chronic pelvic pain specialist, Dr. Jeannette Potts, joins us from the West Coast today as she discusses her work within the field of pelvic pain in men. She will specifically be discussing the role of Prostatitis and Interstitial Cystitis/Painful Bladder Syndrome. She will also discuss why she chooses to focus on men and the issue around gendered medicine.


    After practicing at the Cleveland Clinic's Glickman Urological Institute for 15 years, Dr. Potts realized she needed to find a better way to provide more holistic care to men suffering from Urological Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndromes (UCPPS). During her tenure at the Cleveland Clinic she became more subspecialized, focusing her work in prostatitis, chronic pelvic pain, and psychosexual well-being. Dr. Potts was named among the "best Urologists" in North East Ohio, by Cleveland Magazine.


    She has been a passionate collaborator with the NIH and the IPCN, to advance research and care of patients suffering from UCPPS. She has published numerous articles in urology and family medicine and has given over 100 lectures on UCPPS and related topics, as an invited speaker at medical and urological conferences world-wide.


    Dr. Potts is Assistant Clinical Instructor, on the faculty of Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and University Hospitals of Cleveland.

    Business of Style - Understanding Line & Design presentation at AICI Global

    in Business

    Listen as Clare Maxfield AICI CIP interviews Joanne Rae AICI CIP on her upcoming AICI Global conference presentation - Business of Style - Understanding Line & Design, this August 27th 2015 in Washington DC.


    Polls show that 42% never find clothes to fit; the reason, there is no standardization in women’s sizes! Ready-to-wear garments have become virtually the norm and labels mean more than fit. Bottom line; regardless of our body type, fit is always of supreme importance. Our clothing can make us appear slimmer, larger, or taller. We can use the correct fit of a garment to emphasize or de-emphasize a particular area. In this session you’ll learn the skill of identifying ‘Design Lines’ and ‘Proportions’ within ready-made garments. We will introduce to you to the same skills used by designer tailors on how the use of horizontal, vertical, symmetrical & asymmetrical lines, scale and proper measurements will impact the way you shop in the future and dress your clients with spectacular results.

    The Biz With D: Interview w/ Tank + Melanie Amaro + 12 Til

    in Music

    Strength can often be found in the midst of struggle. It's in those moments of hardship that we fully understand who we are and what we're really capable of. Grammy Award-nominated R&B singer, songwriter, and producer Tank realized that in late 2012. While working on the TGT super group album, Three Kings, with Ginuwine and Tyrese, he simultaneously endured a string of revelatory personal shakeups.


    "Those were some trying times from a relationship standpoint," he admits. "We were finally getting TGT together, and I was going through it personally. Everything was happening all at once, and it was a lot to face. I went through this headache and heartbreak, but I emerged in a better place. That's when music started coming to me. I was initially trying to hide everything behind this heavy and intense 808 vibe, and I leaned towards my strengths instead. I started playing piano and drums again as well as adding live instruments. In the past, I've only made music in the middle of a storm or on my way into one. This was the first time I made music under sunshine. I've been blessed to have a great story and testimony now."


    Tank came out on the other side with that "story"—his sixth full-length solo album, Stronger [Atlantic Records]. In between releasing Three Kings and touring, he spent the better part of 2013 building his latest body of work. Whether he was on a plane, in hotel rooms, or at home in Los Angeles, he completely submersed himself in the creative process. Tank also found an inspiring collaborator in the iconic Jerry "Wonder" Duplessis [The Fugees, Shakira, Miguel]. While in Jerry's NYC studio one night, the pair simply clicked.

    Join Scott's Free Newsletter Here 


    Gary Wright, Founder of Spooky Tooth, Creator of mega-hits like Dreamweaver, and Love is Alive, accomplished world musician and friend and collaborator with Sir George Harrison, was my Live guest last summer. here is a Best of Re-play of this genius musician and enlightened soul.


    In the new book Dreamweaver, Music legend Gary Wright reflects on his professional collaboration, friendship, and spiritual journey with "quiet Beatle" George Harrison, and releases for the first time a re-recorded version of a song they wrote together which features Ringo on drums and Robert and Dean DeLeo from Stone Temple Pilots on bass and guitar. 


    Best known for his multiplatinum hits “Dream Weaver” and “Love is Alive,” Gary Wright came to prominence as a singer and songwriter during the golden age of rock in the 1970s. What is not as well known to the public, however, is Wright’s spiritual side. At the heart of this memoir is the spiritual conversion and journey that Wright experienced alongside his close friend George Harrison. Until Harrison’s death in 2001, the two spent decades together writing songs, eating Indian fare, talking philosophy, and gardening.In addition to featuring lyrics to a song titled "To Discover Yourself" co-written by Wright and Harrison in 1971 and previously released as a demo.

    ON THE GRID: OFF THE CUFF_ ASTRO TURF-MISREMEMBRANCE-EXTORTION

    in Current Events

    It’s Thursday, Feb. 19, 2015 and Debbie Barth and her elite panel of ladies are back!    It’s another episode of what happens when five head-strong, politically minded, out-spoken, individuals get together for some “girl-talk”.  Only … this isn’t your usual “girl-talk.”  


    Join us today as Debbie Barth has her opinion concerning President Obama’s request to Congress for military force against ISIS.  Is he planting the seeds for strong military action, with a winning strategy … or just laying down artificial turf?


    Sandy Estlow will be giving her thoughts and opinions concerning the ongoing case of Bowe Bergdahl: prisoner-of-war, deserter or collaborator? Does the effect of war and what it does to the human flight or fight syndrome have any merit in this case?


    Eileen Brown will address Secretary Jeh Johnson, Department of Homeland Security, and his threatening letter to US sheriffs.  Is it justified or purely adulterated … extortion?  What else don’t we know?


    Linda Alexander reflects on the recent events with Brian Williams.  Has his “misremembrance”  sent a message of how value the “truth”  in the story is over the “adventure” in the story.  This is one story that Williams hopes everyone will forget.


    Bea Kunz will be joining us at the latter part of the show with her comments.
