    Turn It UP! w/ SPUR OF THE MOMENT

    in Radio

    SPUR OF THE MOMENT


    In a volatile industry where passions wax and wane, the trends of today become the clichés of tomorrow and bands split as quickly as they capture the world’s hearts, Spur Of The Moment has, over the past two decades, bucked the odds, transcended the usual ups and downs and inspired thousands of fans across the world with a vibe that continues to define the word band.  The list of artists that have worked with this immensely talented unit grows yearly, their resume reads like a who’s who of the R&B and Jazz worlds. From the legendary George Duke to Al Jarreau, Patti Austin, Ledisi, Raheem Devaughn, Lalah Hathaway


    Once you experience the magic of the popular ensemble in action, or  groove along to Spur of the Moment’s exciting new CD “ N 2 Deep” , you will quickly wonder why hasn't this group attained  Superstardom, then you will become a fan. “N 2 Deep” features emerging artist “Grammy” nominated Maimouna Youssef and incredible singer/songwriter Levi Stephens, as well as an appearance by their friend "Grammy" nominated Maysa .


     “What drives us to continue is the fact that, no matter how much we have achieved, there are still so many people in America and around the world who have never seen us perform or heard us, and we’re all about getting out there and sharing what we do with them. There’s also something cool about being the underdog, because there’s always something exciting still to accomplish. Every career has its ebbs and flows, and we’re fortunate to still be around, doing what we love to do – making people happy with our music!”

    Max's Story. Hope from Hoplessness

    in Health

    Imagine being told that your child has a genetic disease or abnormality and there is no possibility of a normal life, what would you do? Go along with the expected course as written in the medical journals or look for alternatives to give him the best quality of life? As your host for many years-I KNOW what you will do!


    On Monday , May 18, 2015 at 8pm eastern,  we have the pleasure of interviewing Melissa who is the mother of Max who was diagnosed with the chromosomal disorder known as PTLS (Potocki-Lupski Syndrome). The expected features of the syndrome include mental retardation, autism spectrum disorder, infantile hypotonia, sleep apnea, structural cardiovascular anomalies, cognitive deficits, abnormal social behaviors, learning disabilities, ADD, OCD, short stature and failure to thrive.


    Max's mom, through diligent research, has improved Max's condition beyond all expectations.. This is a heartwarming story but carries a very heavy message. Different from at the genetic polymorphisms, children with chromosomal abnormalities are not expected to thrive or do well. Please join us and listen to how Melissa overcame her fears, challenge the medical establishment's expectations and gave Max fighting chance for normal living. The story will surprise you, warm your heart and (I hope) spur you to action for these children were not being given the proper opportunity to live.


    Because of the time difference (the family lives in the southern hemisphere) I recorded the interview and will play it during our regular show on 5/18/15 at 8 PM Eastern time.


    See you then Dr. Jess :-)

    MOMocrats MOMochat: A Stop to TPP Talks -- Now What?

    in Politics Progressive

    An Amtrak crash kills half a dozen people and injuries hundreds others -- when oh when will we set aside funds to maintain our infrastructure? And it shouldn't take a well-trafficked route that members of Congress take to get to DC to spur them into action. We discuss the South Carolina man whose political and physical blindness to the benefits of Obamacare could cost him his eyesight. And finally we talk about the TPP and how Senate Democrats put the brakes on the president's trade talks with Pacific Rim countries. When do we find out more details and what are terms we'd be happy with? And can we expect more muscle-flexing from the economic populist wing of the Democratic Party as we head into 2016?

    Private Exchanges and Pet Insurance

    in Business

    On this morning's program, the hosts will be discussing private health insurance exchanges, pet insurance and more with special guests from Accenture and Hartville Pet Insurance Group.


    For the first segment on today's program, Scott Brown, Private Exchange Offering Lead at Accenture, will be joining the program to discuss the firm's latest private exchange research. Accenture estimates enrollment in private health insurance exchanges doubled to six million individuals for the 2015 plan year. The company projects hypergrowth will continue through 2018, as a number of factors inhibiting early growth will dissipate, while several accelerators will spur further adoption. These factors, combined with the employer’s desire to meet consumers’ demand for choice and flexibility in a retail-like shopping experience, will lead to 40 million members on private exchanges by 2018.


    The second guest on this week's program will be JoAnne Novak, AVP Business Development at Hartville Pet Insurance Group, providers of ASPCA Pet Health Insurance.  As one of the oldest and largest pet insurance providers in the U.S., Hartville has committed itself to helping more pet parents have access to reliable and affordable pet insurance plans. According to the American Pet Products Association, roughly 68 percent of U.S. households have a pet, and last year, over $15 billion was spent on veterinary care. In this segment, JoAnne will discuss what’s driving the increasing demand for pet health insurance as a voluntary benefit as well as what makes pet insurance relevant for the workforce in connection with health care consumerism and private exchanges.

    A Theory of Parenting - NYPL - Peter Mendelsund and High Line Park

    in Parents

    The High Line (also known as the High Line Park) is a 1.45-mile-long (2.33 km) New York City linear park built in Manhattan on an elevated section of a disused New York Central Railroad spur called the West Side Line.[1] Inspired by the 3-mile (4.8-kilometer) Promenade plantée (tree-lined walkway), a similar project in Paris completed in 1993, the High Line has been redesigned and planted as an aerial greenway andrails-to-trails park.[3][4]  perishing square beams is a kid friendly part of the high line!
    We chose this spot due to the graphic natural that it shares with our feature Artist Peter Mendelsund!


    NYPL says:
    The practice of designing jackets and covers for books becomes a lens through which to view the question: What do books look like? (How much of the imaginative content of the reading experience is the author's, and how much is the readers; who owns the reading experience; can an author preside in some real way over our reading imaginations; what are the parameters which hem in the reading imagination? How should books be packaged and sold?) These questions will be touched on during a rich visual tour of Peter Mendelsund's design work.
