We are very pleased to have Dr. Speid with us tonight. Lorna Speid, PhD, is a pharmacist. She works in the pharmaceutical industry as a regulatory affairs and drug development consultant. She has a practice in the development of new treatments for rare diseases.
After working for Sanofi Winthrop in the United Kingdom, Ciba Geigy at headquarters in Switzerland, and Novartis in Switzerland, she moved to the United States. She worked for three small companies in the United States, and now runs her own consulting practice. Dr. Speid sat on an important NIH Committee for the development of new treatments for rare diseases. She is the founder of a non-profit called Rare Diseases Patients First! This organization is planning to provide education to patients around the world that have a rare disease, about the clinical trial process. This will be done free of charge. We will provide more information about these educational internet-based meetings, as soon as they are ready to be rolled out later this year. Dr. Speid advises on the development of new treatments for rare diseases.
Dr. Speid saw a need to provide information to patients about clinical trials that would allow them to be empowered enough to ask the right questions before entering clinical trials, and while in clinical trials. She wrote the book Clinical Trials: What Patients and Healthy Volunteers Need to Know, to accomplish this. It was published by Oxford University Press in 2010.
Sunday, May 29 - Our incredible special guests are James Valvano (WeHaveAFace.org) and his A Team comprised of an incredible team of individuals within the Huntington's disease community. These individuals have joined the project to promote the film documentary, and to continue to provide valuable support to others within the JHD/HD community. Advocacy for Huntington's disease is a key part of our daily lives.
WeHaveAFace.org was founded to increase international awareness of Huntington's disease through a creative, cinematic form - The film: "The Faces of Huntington's Disease: I am No Longer a Faceless Face"
The idea for a full-length documentary followed the overwhelming support of the release of the film: "The Faceless Faces of Huntington's Disease" into the NeuroFilmFestival.

Personality disorders are of many types. They range from self -consciousness, and inferiority, to disorientation and mal adjustment in thought.A sick mind can be as real and distressing as a sick body, and at sometimes even more than the body, as the mind replays the past events of life, it becomes so real and alive to the individual who has done nothing to alter the disorder, or confusion, that keeps them so occupied in thought. each moment is spent in flames of anger, or to have revenge of that particular situtation or condition.Understanding the mind cannot be released of its passions, until it is voiced of this errort thought, man continues to live in a consciousness of total dissater trying to figure out the outcome of their error thinking.The personality then becomes adjusted to accomodate this attitude of mind,as each error thought enters the sub-conscious mind, and hides itself, many find themselves in need of psychiatric help.They can often help themselves if they come face to face with their thoughts about their condition, and uderstand that Love for themselves, is the key to forgive and let go.There are many reasons why many people go through these situations in life and some never get to experience the joy in living and loving LOVE is the medicine for this DIS-EASE.
2 Corinthians 5:7 "For we walk by faith, not by sight."
What does that verse really mean? What should we take from it? Do we really believe what it says?
In today's wayward church, we may think this means to 'name and claim' your blessing. A new car, more money, or some other self-centered thing. As if God is the bellboy and we are the patron staying at the hotel. Throw God a dollar bill, get what we want, and have a good day
However, walking by faith is not trusting to get what you want from God. It’s depending on Him even when you do not understand. It's walking in a dark tunnel where you can't see a pinprick of light. It's taking one agonizing foot forward inch by inch.
For one woman, walking by faith and not by sight is more than just a nice Bible verse, it's the thread of her being. Like Job, she has been bombarded with calamity after calamity from the time she was in her mother's womb. Financial ruin, loss of relationships, and the loss of physical health, she is truly Job for us...but unlike Job we don't know if it's going to end well at all. So she is walking by faith, not by sight.
This episode is more than just about showcasing a book; it's about experiencing the words of someone who is hanging on by the scratch marks her nails left behind. Join me as I talked with Elizabeth Chalker as she shares her story of raw faith. You can join me by calling in at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air.

CLIP - Sophia's Correction & The Archontics Control Matrix
'Comparative mythologist, author and teacher John Lash discussIing "Sophia's Correction", Earth changes, stellar anomalies & Gaia's awakening. John Lash is a self-educated free-lance scholar who combines studies and experimental mysticism to teach directive mythology. An expert on sidereal mythology, naked-eye astronomy, precession, and the World Ages, he also teaches the critique of belief-systems. On metahistory.org his website, he presents a radical revision of Gnosticism, with original commentaries on the Nag Hammadi codices. He also presents the only complete restoration by any scholar of the Sophianic myth of the Pagan Mysteries, the sacred story of Gaia-Sophia, recounting the origin of the Earth and the human species from the galactic core. A number of strange phenomenon are being reported from around the world at what seems to be an increased frequency. Magnetic North is reportedly on the move and the sun rose two days early in Greenland. Some people are claiming that the sun is both rising and setting in the wrong place, others contend that the stars are displaced and the Moon is not following its normal pattern. John is with us to share his views about what is going on and why. Topics discussed: the telestai, restoration of the Sophia myth, planetary Tantra, the Dendera zodiac, physical breakthrough, fast track acquisition of spirituality, the secret of the divine experiment, shock goddess, consciousness animal, "Pam", Gaia awakening, aperture, progeny, different consciousness, Anthropos, disease, disconnection with the source, shift in the magnetic field, sun shifting, the setting of the sun, sinkholes, Earth an organic body captured in an inorganic system, the Journey on the mothership, anamu and more.'
CLIP 2 - The Archontic Deception by John Lash
Does your pet have dry eye? According to dvm360 Magazine , dry eye is a condition in which the tear production is decreased or absent. Common clinical signs associated with this disease are:
Squinting or holding the eye completely closed
A thick, sticky discharge that is often yellowish or greenish in color
Corneal cloudiness creating a dull sheen to the eye(s)
The superficial layers of the eye, including the cornea and conjunctiva, as well as the eyelids depend on tears for nutrition and protection. Without tears, these structures are highly susceptible to disease and trauma.
Some breeds of dogs, such as the American Cocker Spaniel, Miniature Schnauzer, Poodle, Shih Tzu, Lhasa Apso, Pug, Westhighland White Terrier, and English Bulldog are predisposed to this disease due to genetic factors. This clinical disease is also seen in felines (i.e. Persians). The causes of dry eye include immune-mediated, congenital, infectious (canine distemper virus), drug-induced (sulfa antibiotics, Etogesic, topical atropine), surgery-induced (removal of the tear gland of the nictitans) and neurogenic. A significant amount of canine cases tend to be immune-mediated and maintenance treatment is required for the life of the pet. Parotid duct transposition surgery can be considered if medical treatment fails to significantly increase the tear production.
Our goals in the medical therapy of your pet are to: 1) Improve tear function, 2) prevent ocular disease and 3) improve patient comfort. Client compliance and follow-up visits are important in evaluating your pet’s response to the medical therapy.
