I was born the son of a career diplomat and spent 12 of my first 13 years overseas—first Palermo, Sicily, then Vienna, Austria, and finally Thailand from 1962-67. My dad was the American consul in Udorn Thani, a forward CIA and special operations base for missions into Laos, and later on, into North Vietnam. I attended high school in the Washington DC area and graduated in 1977 from Colby College in Waterville, Maine, with a degree in English Literature. Though mostly raised in cities, I had always dreamed of living in a wilderness setting, and set out for Alaska in 1979. After an 800 mile canoe trip, I settled in a remote Eskimo village on the upper Kobuk River in northwest arctic Alaska, 200 miles off the road grid. I worked for a hunting guide, managed a trading post, and then became a schoolteacher to Inupiat Eskimo children in the local school. But my first love was always the seemingly limitless, wild country that surrounded me, and the creatures that roamed it. In 20 years of living in the region, I travelled tens of thousands of wilderness miles by skiff, canoe, on foot, skis, and snowmobile, often alone I’m a contributing editor to Alaska Magazine, and on USA Today’s board of editorial contributors. I currently live on a semi-remote homesite in Southeast Alaska with my wife, Sherrie, and our four dogs.

Michele Garber talks to Beverly Hills Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Mark Berman about his technigue for volumizing the face with THE SPACE LIFT - AUTOLOGOUS FAT TRANSPLANTATION, as well as about his work with ADULT (NON EMBRYONIC) stem cells.
Dr. Berman is a Diplomat of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery, and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He practices cosmetic surgery in Beverly Hills and is well known for his longtime work with fat grafting – particularly to restore the three-dimensional volume of the aging face.
In 2011, he and Elliot Lander, MD, started the California Stem Cell Treatment Center to provide investigational surgical cell therapy for patients that could potentially benefit from SVF (stromal vascular fraction rich in stem cells) and co-founded the Cell Surgical Network advancing this work among colleagues throughout the world. He’s also the first surgeon to use Gore-Tex materials in cosmetic surgery. He has also authored a novel – Substance of Abuse – a controversial sexy thriller that suggests a solution to the war on drugs (available on Amazon).
Samuel Hawley was born and grew up in South Korea, the son of missionary parents. After earning BA and MA degrees in history at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, he returned to East Asia with his wife to work as a teacher for nearly two decades, first in Japan and then Korea, ending in 2007 as an associate professor of English at Yonsei University in Seoul. He additionally served for three years as head of Yonsei’s 3,000-student Communicative English Department, and as publications chairman and editor for the Royal Asiatic Society, Korea Branch. He continues to serve as general editor of the Society’s annual journal Transactions, the oldest Korean studies journal in the world, published since 1900.
It was in Japan in the early 1990s that Samuel started writing for magazines and newspapers on topics ranging from Japanese fashion and international travel to the world of sumo wrestling, daimyo clocks and fishing at urban tsuribori. By the late ‘90s he had turned his attention to books. His most notable work from this period is The Imjin War (co-published by the Royal Asiatic Society, Seoul and the Insitute of East Asian Studies, UC Berkeley, 2005) the most comprehensive account in English of Japan’s sixteenth-century invasion of Korea and attempted conquest of China, an event of seismic importance in the history of East Asia. He next focused on US Navy ensign and American diplomat George C. Foulk, Washington’s representative in Seoul at the time of Korea’s opening to the West. Foulk, one of the first Westerners to learn to speak Korean and to travel extensively in the country, was perhaps the foremost Western expert at the time on the “Hermit Kingdom." Hawley's interest in Foulk resulted in two books, America's Man in Korea, and Inside the Hermit Kingdom (both Lexington Books, 2007).
For this episode of The #SocialSpitballShow, we focus on the Do-Nothing Congress of the last few years. The Congressional approval ratings have dipped into the "teens," in terms of approval numbers.
Two of the worst offenders of this 113th Congress are Darrell Issa (CA-49) & Walter B. Jones, Jr. (NC-3). Our guests this evening are true representatives of the people who are ready to take the fight for the people to DC.
Our first guest is new to the show, but not to the national spotlight. Dave Peiser is the Democratic candidate running against incumbent Darrell Issa (R), who has held the seat since 2003. Peiser is a true community man. He has founded two businesses (Peiser Solutions & greenliness.com). With one rooted in health care experiences and the other providing green product solutions, Dave Peiser is right in sync with the average California voter. Peiser also serves on several non-profit boards and advocates for those that do not have their own voice. Tune in to hear more about the man who will remove Darrell "Benghazi" Issa from office: http://www.peiserforcongress.com/
Our second guest is quite familiar to the Social Spitball Show listener. Marshall Adame is a fascinating, passionate family man, retired Marine and U.S. diplomat, as well as an active defender of the rights of veterans, workers, women and the environment of North Carolina. Whenever Marshall speaks, you know he is speaking from the heart, as well as the mind. A solid mix of intelligence & passion is exactly what NC's 3rd Congressional district needs. Learn more about Marshall just before 8pm Eastern: http://www.marshall4congress.com/
The people need these representatives. The people need to hear their messages. Spread the word and tune in starting at 7pm EDT
Let's get the conversation going...
Rep. Chris Stewart introduces bill to curb growing armed police force of federal agencies. This week we interview an American woman and business owner whose home was invaded and property sized by agents of Homeland security and I.C.E. approximately 20 - 30 agents’ use methods usually reserved for terrorist, people resisting arrest and other dangerous people. MS Stewart was charged with impersonating a foreign diplomat and thrown in jail. Neighbors said armed agents use flash grenades and air support.
CURE Magazine ran a recent blog about the newly issued evidence-based guidelines for cancer survivorship by American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). Kathy LaTour, their Editor at Large, says "it's about time." The new guidelines address the areas of "neuropathy, fatigue and depression, and anxiety." Quality care for these fall-out issues isn't as recognized as one would hope.
Joanna Montgomery is among those dealing with chronic cancer. Her diagnosis of a rare stage 3c aggressive cancer came just five days after delivering her "miracle" baby girl. Since 2012, she's wavered between remission and death. Her story has put a face to millions of other survivors dealing with the fall-out issues of cancer ... and Joanna's done the bulk of the telling. From blogging for the Huffington Post and writing a column for "The Stir" with Cafe Mom, to national spotlights like the Katie Couric Show, she's bared the nitty-gritty of living and dealing with chronic cancer.
Molly MacDonald had no family history and 13 years of clear mammograms before cancer invaded her life. Though she considered her case "mild", treatment regimens took a toll on her ability to work and support her family. That prompted her to bridge the financial gap for others; she founded The Pink Fund in 2006. With partnerships from Diplomat Specialty Pharmacy and Ford Warriors in Pink, among others, The Pink Fund is able to meet basic needs, while decreasing stress levels; thereby improving survivorship outcomes and quality of life.
Join us for a riveting conversation about survivorship during this quarterly feature with CURE Magazine.
