    Death Begins in the Digestive System

    in Self Help

    The phrase “death begins in the colon” was commonly discussed in the early years of the natural health movement in the 1970’s and 80’s. It is really the whole digestive system that needs addressed, including the stomach. The subtlety of the digestive process is little understood by most people. Toxicity is a major cause of distress and ill health. Poor food choices and habits lead to indigestion and constipation, with an accumulation in the colon of gummy toxic residues. This leads to toxins being reabsorbed and recycled through out the body that irritate tissues and deteriorate organs. Detoxification and repopulation of the intestines with healthy probiotics are crucial for restoration of good health.

    Ultimate Play Day

    in Moms and Family

    The Ultimate Play Day is a day long celebration focused on the idea that play is a crucial aspect of everyone’s life. Hosted by the Playful Pittsburgh Collaborative, the Ultimate Play Day is an opportunity for the Pittsburgh community to come together in a centralized location to engage in and learn about play. This year, local and regional organizations will host play stations throughout Burgwin Park to provide a holistic model of innovative and creative play. The event will feature outdoor play, an opportunity to create with natural materials such as small logs, rocks, & acorns, games made from recycled material, art, the imagination playground, story telling sessions, hula hoop play, and drum circles. There will be play for every age—from the very young to the most seasoned!

    This celebration will also introduce community members to playful organizations such as The Carnegie Museum of Art, The Saturday Light Brigade, Kids Plus Pediatrics, PAEYC, Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, and many more! Our hope is that this event will spark conversations regarding other play-based topics including, play and learning, risk and play, nature play, and play through design.

    Join me as I speak with Cara Ciminillo to chat about this exciting event!

    Detox of the Organs of Elimination

    in Self Help

    A key step of the natural health process is detox. The amount of poisons abusing our bodies is a major cause of distress and ill health. Poor food choices and habits lead to an accumulation in the colon of gummy toxic residues, allowing toxins to be reabsorbed and recycled through the body that irritate tissues and deteriorate organs. The liver must be healthy to do a good job of cleaning the blood. The lungs, kidneys and skin are also involved in the elimination process and need to function well. Periodic intentional detoxification of these organs is essential for good health.

    Black Men: America's Bad Guys

    in Politics

    Black Men: America's Bad Guys


    Someone joked that there should be a hotline for white folks to call whenever they need someone to blame. That hotline would connect them to a Black Man to blame.


    The joke isn’t really a joke because in American, the Black Man is blamed for everything. Remember Susan Smith? Think about it: A city is designated as the “murder capitol” because of the number of Black men who murder each other—even though the number of whites who murder each other is higher. We are blamed for violence, rape of white women, children out of wedlock and even for our own destruction.


    The problem with Black male bashing used to be that it came ONLY from the hearts and minds of vicious racist mongrels who were too ignorant to realize that one group of people could not be responsible for the destruction of an entire society. Well, perhaps one group can, but we’ll leave that for another column.


    Currently, some of the meanest, hateful propaganda about Black men comes from other Black people.


    And, now the old Black male bashing is becoming the new Black male bashing because “The Color Purple” just won’t seem to die and thanks to the sellout of all Black manhood personified in Tyler Perry, more Black male bashing drivel is being recycled.


    Where does it end?


    Listen to The Bridge Radio tomorrow at 4pm Pacific as we discuss the demonization of Black Men. Join Award-Winning Author Darryl James and co-hosts Tracy Powell, Dr. John Hamilton, Marcus D. LeGall III and DJ Gates on one of the most intellectually stimulating shows on radio.
    Tune in each Sunday at 4PM Pacific Time for "The Bridge," a smarter radio show.

    Making Food Personal Again

    in Environment

    Nikhil Arora – Co-Founder, Back to the Roots


    When Nikhil and his friend and now business partner Alejandro Velez, were a few months away from graduation at UC Berkley, they heard that they could grow gourmet mushrooms on recycled coffee grounds. Inspired by the idea of turning waste into fresh, local food, they experimented in Alex’s fraternity kitchen ultimately growing one test bucket of oyster mushrooms. With the ONE bucket and lots of support from their community, they made a life changing decision to forgo their investment banking and consulting job offers. Instead they became full-time urban mushroom farmers and haven’t looked back. Want to know how to grow fresh organic mushrooms in your home? Want to learn about a Water Garden that is a closed loop ecosystem where you can feed fish, feed the plants, and the plants clean the water? So do I! Join me to find out. This show sponsored by Chapman Automotive.

    Metalsmith Benchtalk with jeweler Todd Reed

    in Art

     


     


    Our guest on Metalsmith Benchtalk on Thursday, April 2nd, 2015 at 3:00 pm PST  is jeweler Todd Reed, best known for his innovative use of raw diamonds.


    Please join us for this live interview and participate by logging onto the chatroom or by sending a message to Whaley Studios via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. 


    About Todd:


    In 1992, Todd introduced the aesthetic of the raw diamond to the fine jewelry industry. With designs that challenge the common perception of luxury jewelry, Todd's work is one-of-a-kind wearable art for the true individual.


    Todd pulls inspiration from the endless beauty found in nature--the most intricate details of the natural world can spawn an entire collection. Since the beginning, Todd has been involved in every step of the process. All pieces are inspired, designed and hand-fabricated in Boulder, CO and Venice, CA with recycled metals and diamonds that have been purchased through reputable sources.


     


    At a very young age, Todd Reed was introduced to the world of fine art. His mother, a renowned commercial illustrator, ensured that Todd’s childhood was filled with creative work. When Todd was 10 years old, he witnessed a silversmith at work, and it forever changed his perception of design. “I watched in awe as this man turned sheet metal into body adornment in what seemed to be a very short amount of time,” says Reed.


    Throughout his adolescence and early adulthood, Todd was drawn to creative arts such as culinary arts, painting, sculpting, clothing design, leather work and eventually, jewelry design. While in his teens, he graduated from culinary school with a developed appreciation for process before result.
