    a Theory of Parenting -Central Park Conservatory Garden

    in Photography

    The Conservatory Garden is Central Park's six-acre formal garden.


    It is divided into three smaller gardens, each with a distinct style: Italian, French, and English. The Garden's main entrance is through the Vanderbilt Gate, on Fifth Avenue between 104th and 105th Streets. 


    The Italianate center garden is composed of a large lawn surrounded by hedges and is bordered by two exquisite spring-blooming pink and white crabapple trees.


    A 12-foot high jet fountain plays on the western end of the lawn, backed by tiered hedges and stairs that lead up to a wisteria pergola.


    On the walkway under the pergola are medallions inscribed with the names of the original 13 states.


    spectacular seasonal displays of spring tulips,  all within an ellipse of Japanese holly.


    In the center is the charming Three Dancing Maidens fountain by German sculptor, Walter Schott.


    To the south is the very intimate English-style garden.


    There are five mixed borders of trees, shrubs and perennial plants, and five seasonal beds featuring spring bulbs that are followed by annual flower displays.


    A slope of woodland plants lines the western edge of this garden.


    At the center is sculptor Bessie Potter Vonnoh's lovely Frances Hodgeson Burnett Memorial Fountain, a tribute to the author of the children's book, The Secret Garden.


    The children — a girl and a boy, said to depict Mary and Dickon, the main characters from the classic — stand at one end of a small water lily pool. 


    The Conservatory Garden is an officially designated Quiet Zone and offers a calm and colorful setting for a leisurely stroll, and intimate wedding, or an escape with a good book.


    For many years the garden was tended by volunteers from the Garden Club of America and in 1983 it was restored by the Central Park Conservancy.

    Sony Allen, President of National Association of Seadogs, Nigerian in Japan

    in Education

    We are honored to reach the president of NAS , Mr. Allen Omoruyi Sonny.  He leads approximately 1000 Nigerians living in Japan.  When he was asked “Who is sponsoring the organization?” he answered “ourselves” candidly suggesting the hardship of living in Japan as Nigerians.  As an organization to support women and children in Nigeria, SWACIN is glad to know the Nigerian organization in Japan to say the least, as we have searched them throughout Japan past two years!  He has graduated from University of Bennin, Nigeria, earned BSC (Mathematics)  After working for Ministry of Education in Nigeria for years, he got married to a Japanese woman, and now runs personal computer sales business.  He says, his organization, “National Association of Seadogs (NAS) is a registered Nigerian charitable and humanitarian organization, founded by  a Nigerian playwright and poet, Wole Soyinka and six other students in 1952. Mr. Soyinka was awarded the 1986 Nobel Prize in Literature, the first African to be honored.  It began as a University Campus group but has grown into an international organization with branches in 36 states of Nigeria overseas including Japan, South Africa, UK, Republic of Ireland, USA, The Netherland and Canada. NAS is dedicated to humanitarian and charitable endeavors within Nigeria and whatever society the members find themselves.”

    the Power Hour with Daiva MacKenzie

    in Self Help

    The Power of Reiki – Negative thoughts and feelings attach themselves to the energy field and cause a disruption in the flow of life force. This diminishes the vital function of the organs and cells of the physical body. Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It’s administered by laying on hand.

    Guest: Karen Maezen Miller, author of Momma Zen

    in Relationships

    This week on Relationships 2.0 my guest is Karen Maezen Miller, author of Momma Zen: Walking the Crooked Path of Motherhood.


    Combining humor, honesty, and plainspoken advice, Momma Zen distills the doubts and frustrations of parenting into vignettes of Zen wisdom.


    Drawing on her experience as a first-time mother, and on her years of Zen meditation and study, Miller explores how the daily challenges of parenthood can become the most profound spiritual journey of our lives.


    This compelling and wise memoir follows the timeline of early motherhood from pregnancy through toddlerhood. Momma Zen takes readers on a transformative journey, charting a mother’s growth beyond naive expectations and disorientation to finding fulfillment in ordinary tasks, developing greater self-awareness and acceptance—to the gradual discovery of “maternal bliss,” a state of abiding happiness and ease that is available to us all.


    In her gentle and reassuring voice, Karen Miller convinces us that ancient and authentic spiritual lessons can be as familiar as a lullaby, as ordinary as pureed peas, and as frequent as a sleepless night. She offers encouragement for the hard days, consolation for the long haul, and the lightheartedness every new mom needs to face the crooked path of motherhood straight on.


    About the author:
    Karen Maezen Miller is a wife and mother as well as a Zen Buddhist priest at the Hazy Moon Zen Center in Los Angeles. She and her family live in Sierra Madre, California, with a century-old Japanese garden in their backyard. She writes about spirituality in everyday life. She is the author of Paradise in Plain Sight: Lessons from a Zen Garden, Hand Wash Cold: Care Instructions for an Ordinary Life, Momma Zen: Walking the Crooked Path of Motherhood, and her writing is included in numerous anthologies.

    O.G.T. Presents: The Weekly Jarvis Database Anime Special

    in Entertainment

    Now let's be honest here Japanese Anime has changed over the course of the 40+ years since it's introduction to North America.  We have seen a slew of the greatest to worst Anime that has surpassed American Animation many times over.  So much in fact that it has influenced American animation and movies with Japanese styles.  From Ultron talking about Metor originally mentioned as a spell in Final Fantasy 7 that spawned it's biggest fan base out of most Final Fantasy prequels and sequels.


    For the youth out there that are only familiar with anime such as Naruto to Attack on Titan, Robertron and Kkaos Reinz invite you to quite the educational lesson when it comes to anime.  Your dealing with over 30 years of experience when dealing with imported originals to the unedited mainstream such as Dragon Ball Z without commercials, Gohan from the android saga of the future missing an arm and still fighting.  All the way to the Rosetta Stone of Anime: Urotsukidoji back in 1986 something so horribly graphic and mindbending you will never see it in an American theater anywhere ever!!!  There will be a lot to cover on this subject in addition to wether Anime has been saturated in the American market? Did sites such as Crunchy Roll answer the prayers of easy access to imported anime?


    We know you may not agree and you may never shall but you will witness the power of the true linege Anime/Henti why because no punches will be pulled.  The truth about Anime will be revealed and this discussion began on last week's show this time we are going fully in with no mercy.


    The beginning segment will cover the following news this week:



    Jon Bernthal Cast as Frank Castle in the Netflix Original Series 'Marvel's Daredevil'
    E3 2015: Everything You Need to Know About Street Fighter 5
    E3 Begins With Oculus Briefing

    Change the Interaction, Change the Outcome

    in Relationships

    Louise and William's new book, Being Relational, details seven ways of being in relation to others that capture the heart and soul of all that is self-help, grounded in method, and supported by relational conflict theory and brain science findings. The ways of being that promote quality face-to-face dialogue and lasting positive change are rooted in teachings from many sources and are also inspired by the experience of thousands of people for whom the Senfts have mediated, fostering personal strength and connectedness through quality interaction. In this program, Louise and William will share insights into their practical and inspiring approach that the listeners can immediately apply to their stressful interactions as well as, check in on and grow into, as a way of being in relation to others.


    Louise Phipps Senft and William Senft (Baltimore, MD) are business and law professors, mediators, lawyers, entrepreneurs, parents of five children, and in William's case, youth sports coach and clergy. In their many years of experience at their firm, Baltimore Mediation, Louise and William have gained a unique perspective on the ways that leaders and others manage conflict, experience conflict, manage themselves in conflict, solve problems, build relationships, and make their way in the world. They are the founders of the nonprofit ORANS: The Campaign for Relational Leadership and the ORANS Institute for Relational Leadership.


    Stephen Kotev is a Washington D.C. based conflict resolution consultant offering mediation, negotiation and facilitation services, conflict coaching, training and somatic education to private and government clients. He holds a Master of Science degree from George Mason University’s School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution and a black belt in the Japanese martial art of Aikido.
