    ANYTHING GOES Uvi Poznansky

    in Entertainment

    Bennet Pomerantz discusses anything with media Guests on his Betty Award winning ANYTHING GOES

    Tonight's guest is Uvi Poznansky, who  is a California-based author, poet and artist.

    She earned her B. A. in Architecture and Town Planning from the Technion in Haifa, Israel. During her studies and in the years immediately following her graduation, she practiced with an innovative Architectural firm, taking a major part in the large-scale project, 'Home for the Soldier'; a controversial design that sparked fierce public debate.

    At the age of 25 Uvi moved to Troy, N.Y. with her husband and two children. Before long, she received a Fellowship grant and a Teaching Assistantship from the Architecture department at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where she guided teams in a variety of design projects; and where she earned her M.A. in Architecture. Then, taking a sharp turn in her education, she earned her M.S. degree in Computer Science from the University of Michigan.

    During the years she spent in advancing her career--first as an architect, and later as a software engineer, software team leader, software manager and a software consultant (with an emphasis on user interface for medical instruments devices)--she wrote and painted constantly, and exhibited in Israel and California. In addition, she taught art appreciation classes. Her versatile body of work can be seen online at uviart.com. It includes bronze and ceramic sculptures, oil and watercolor paintings, charcoal, pen and pencil drawings, and mixed media.

     She won great acclaim for her novel, Apart From Love, and for her poetry book, Home (in tribute to her father. Her collection of dark tales, Twisted, and her Historical Fiction book, A Favorite Son, are both new age, biblically inspired books. Rise to Power (the first volume in her new series, The David Chronicles) has just been published.

    MKTV 162: Ashley Carroll Case/Kyla Smith Interview

    in Current Events

    On today's show, we will be chatting with Kyla Smith about the Ashley Carroll case.

    Carroll was last seen when a friend dropped her off in the area of Quail Street and First Street in Albany, New York on May 6, 2010. She is from Troy, New York and had to Albany to see her boyfriend. They had been arguing through text messaging. Carroll's boyfriend stated he never saw her that day. Her mother, who lives in Rensselaer, New York, reported her missing.

    Carroll reportedly planned to travel to New York City with a friend after she met with her boyfriend, and then return May 9, but there's no indication she ever arrived there. Authorities don't believe she ever made it back to her apartment in Troy, because all of her clothing and jewelry was left there, and she would have taken those things with her. She didn't have a car at the time of her disappearance and depended on others for transportation. Carroll hasn't used her cellular phone since her disappearance; it was last tracked to a location near a friend's home on Marlborough Court in Albany. Her family doesn't believe she would have abandoned her one-year-old daughter.

    Both Albany and Rensselaer police are investigating Carroll's disappearance. She is considered to be missing under suspicious circumstances.

    Practical Preppers Founder on Common Sense Prepping

    in Education

    Tara & Common Sense Prepping!
    on American Preppers Radio!
    *9:00pm/Est *8:00pm/Ct *7:00pm/Mt *6:00pm/Pt
    Live Listen and Chat go to:

    Common Sense Prepping is proud to announce that Practical Preppers founder Scott Hunt will be this week’s featured guest. Although Hunt may be most well-known for helping develop the prepper’s scoring system for National Geographic’s Doomsday Preppers series, the homesteading expert’s self-reliance expertise and services goes far beyond the small screen. 

    When Common Sense Prepping asked Scott Hunt what prompted a man with a Master of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering to leave a position as a product development engineer at Michelin Tire and focus on a career as a preparedness expert, he had this to say:

    “You never know where life will lead you! I so appreciate the opportunity I had to go to the school of my dreams, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, to get an awesome education followed by a really cool job at Michelin Tire. My education and hands on upbringing combine perfectly in the Preparedness world. Taking a systems approach to preparedness as opposed to buying stuff from off of a list will get you your desired outcome: Well prepared and confident! As an Engineer working for a large corporation you become highly specialized in an area but you rarely get to design the big picture.

    Listen in on this informative interview!
