Sharon Weil talks with Jacques Verduin about his transformational programs with incarcerated men in San Quentin Prison. Guiding Rage into Power (GRIP) provides the tools that enable prisoners to create change from the inside out and "turn the stigma of being a violent offender into a badge of being a non-violent Peacekeeper” They discuss some underlying causes of violence, and how mediation, community, and forgiveness practices can bring about a change of heart in a very tight space. Released inmates who have graduated from the program work with challenged youth and are models and teachers to their brothers and sisters who are still incarcerated.

This is Beyond the Airwaves: The Infinity Project, where we go beyond the mainstream media and tackle issues that don't seem so important to the major networks.
Recently, a friend of Oddball Extreme's brought up an interesting question: Should online radio be considered as real radio or streaming media? Also, an Internet station in St. Louis, Missouri, protested a local newspaper for eliminating that station from a reader's choice for best radio station. So, we'll debate whether Internet and online radio are really considered as radio. We'll also talk about other interesting topics, such as that idiot Kanye West's ultimate fail at a concert over the weekend.
Ikari Chaos-San is the founder and creator. Shirley is truly the Oddball Extreme. Janet is our resident Arizona Magician. Tim is the Tokusatsu Master. Heather is Queen Kitty Serenity. MikeBoyens is our video game wizard. We'll also have guest appearances by our friends from the MAD HOUSE, so come and listen in!
Visit our official website at http://beyondtheairwaves.weebly.com and don't forget to join in the conversation on the forums located on our official website. We want you guys and gals, the fans, to tell us what's on your mind and what you feel is important to cover, so let us know what you want to hear.

Bob Grant visits us again, and it's more than we hoped! Beginning at the 22:00 mark, is a powerful, possibly controversial conversation about Ray Rice, Roger Goodell, the public furor and racisim. Bob's sentiment, thoughts and observations about this current scandal tugging at the NFL are quite insightful and unique. The first segment is a continuation from an earlier episode about the very important discussion and the business of retired NFL players and the recently formed Players Congress, LLC. The work retired players Bob Grant, Marvin Cobb, Woody Campbell, Bruce Jarvis, and several others along with retired players wives Jo Bielskie and Jane Arnett are engaged in is not the main focus of the Real Football Wives program...but should be a part of every conversation regarding the business of NFL retirees.

Kyle Freeman got started in business marketing in 1996 in San Diego,
California. He was the first field coordinator promoted in the region, in
record time. He left the company after several years and became the
head trainer of a similar company in the telecom marketing industry.
Spending many years with two different companies, he decided to set
out on his own. In 2003 he created Juice Marketing, Inc., he served as

Kyle served in the United States Navy as a Chief Petty Officer. After 24
years of service with the Navy and Naval Reserves he retired with
honors in 2008.
Now Kyle is ready for his next assignment as an author and speaker
his goal is to help small to medium size businesses as well as veteran
owned businesses find funding sources for their companies and
projects. Most new businesses fail within the first five years due to a
lack of funding. His knowledge of venture capital and source funding is
what helped him and his partners become a public traded company.
His goal to help 10,000 companies become publicly traded is lofty but
he is more than ready for the challenge. As in the Navy Chiefs lead
from the front.

Turlock, CA – Every cell in the heart has the ability to initiate an impulse. Donna Hendershot began her life living in a railroad box car with no running water or plumbing. Growing up, she always dreamed of one day working in the medical field, but her family couldn’t afford to send her to nursing school.
At the age of 28, Donna Hendershot defied the odds, finally attending to be a medical assistant. With her foot in the door, finally, Donna resolved to learn every aspect of cardiology.
That was over 36 years ago. Today, Donna is a retired cardiovascular sonographer. Over the course of her career, supervised all diagnostic testing at San Leandro Hospital and served as an educator, teaching hundreds of nursing students, as well as volunteers, senior citizens and nonmedical professionals, on all aspects related to the anatomy and function of the heart.
“I don’t like to use the word retired,” says Donna. “I’m not done working. I have so much knowledge to share.”
The heart works both electrically and mechanically. If an EKG is abnormal they will supplement that test with a sonogram. In cardiac sonography, a transducer penetrates sound into the chest, allowing physicians to look at the individual chambers of the heart and determine how well each is functioning. When you correlate a sonogram with a patient’s EKG, you have a really clear picture of what’s going on with someone’s heart.
“It was my job to help the doctor help the patient,” says Donna. “The sonogram allows patients to know what’s going on in their bodies before it’s too late, so I loved working with patients and encouraging patients when they were going to have surgery.”
