    What Has Trump Got That's Making Him So Darn Popular?

    in Self Help

    Underreporting of immigration statistics, underreporting of data on the commission of crimes by illegal aliens, non-reporting on how many Mexican citizens are living in the United States, deliberate deception by the media of the situation on our borders...is there any mystery why a candidate who is willing to speak publicly, without political correctness or fear of retribution, has captured the attention of the American public?


    While Donald Trump may not be your pick for a Presidential candidate, and his positions on issues may have fluctuated vastly over the past few years, you cannot take away from him the fact that he is out there saying what many of people are feeling.


    We’ll look at Trump's take on the issues, his delivery and the opposition being thrown at him from almost every political sector...including his own party.

  • When Bullying Results in Suicide with Beth Saadati on CD Speak UP!

    in Christianity

    Join us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! when Scott interview Beth Saadati.


    Beth Saadati has sown her time and heart into the lives of hundreds of teens—and reaped an abundance of laughter and life in return. A certified high school English teacher, she is currently teaching composition classes, homeschooling her son (age nine) and daughter (age twelve), and crafting a novel.


    For more than two decades Beth has taught in public school, private school, and home school settings. Jenna, Beth's effervescent firstborn daughter, was her favorite teenage student before Beth lost her, without warning, to suicide resulting from bullying. On January 2, 2013, the world as Beth had known it forever changed. 


    Now, through speaking and writing, Beth encourages others to fight through heartbreak and hurt as she transparently journeys through the painful aftermath of her beloved daughter's death. Four of Beth’s stories have been published in Chicken Soup for the Soul books in 2015. She was also awarded first place in the SC chapter of American Christian Fiction Writers' first five pages contest.


    Beth is working on a young adult novel, Breathe, based on Jenna's true story. At the 2015 Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference (BRMCWC), this book received the BelieversTrust Beyond the Steeple Award for the work deemed to hold the greatest potential to impact a mainstream audience.

    Health Analytics: Find Data Beyond the Hospital Doors

    in Technology

    Everyone is talking about using analytics to improve healthcare, collecting data on blood pressure, insulin levels, heart rate and other indicators. However, health plan CareSource not only is analyzing that traditional medical data but is using analytics to draw a more complete picture of a patient and the life factors -- lifestyle, home life, and work -- that shape their health. The goal is to prevent recurrence of medical issues and readmission to the hospital.


    Bob Gladden, vice president for CareSource's Center for Analytics, and his team are taking creative approaches to healthcare analytics in an effort to keep their clients healthier in the long run. Gladden joins All Analytics Radio to discuss how organizations can use analytics to search for healthcare solutions that range beyond what we have grown to view as standard health data.


    In this show you will learn:



    About the impact that unnecessary recurrence and readmission have on patients, providers, insurers, and the public
    How providers and insurers can utilize data analytics to have a positive impact on patient lives while delivering efficiencies throughout the healthcare system
    What types of life factors have a significant impact on patient health and how data can identify possible solutions
    About the unexpected role that healthcare analytics can have in shaping public policy, particularly for those patients most in need

    Supporting the Major Organs

    in Self Help

    Supporting the major organs is essential to good health. Public poisons and EMF’s can harm and impair them. Natural health practices, exercise, a positive attitude and nutritious supplements help maintain these crucial organs.


    Good heart strength and rhythm, blood pressure balance and circulatory flow all need attention.
    The lungs are impaired by pollution as well as stress. There are herbs and breathing techniques that can help the lungs and improve breathing, as well as supplemental oxygen for better health.
    The pancreas releases enzyme juices for digestion. The liver is a complex organ with multiple tasks for keeping you living, working as part of a team of organs. It creates bile and recombines proteins, as well as breaking down toxins. The kidneys are involved in the elimination process, filtering out toxins from the blood. Routine support and periodic detoxification of these organs is essential for good health.
