in this special episode we present the first of a series of writings from John Knowles. This short vignette tells the story of Audrey, a college age girl who considers taking riskay photos for her boyfriend. With attention to detail and relatable characters, John creates scenes built to pull the reader in like a quiet observer given a rare opportunity.
The adoption of the Declaration of Independence—237 years ago today—can sometimes feel like an event not just from another time, but from another world. As depicted in John Trumbull’s now-iconic 19th-century painting of the founding fathers in Philadelphia, collectively creating the framework for the nation’s revolutionary political system, such an act of open rebellion by prominent, wealthy and established figures is literally inconceivable to most living Americans.
The Revolutionary War, raging at that time, saw men young and old answer the Colonies’ call to fight the British redcoats. In their allegiance to the ideals of liberty, these rough troops — illustrated in countless paintings and drawings known to history students everywhere — shouldered the monumental task of defending a nation that was, in many respects, not yet truly born.
But as alien as that epoch might feel, time and again we’re reminded that the past is not always as distant as it so often seems.
In fact, some veterans who survived the Revolutionary War prospered well into their eighties, nineties and sometimes even beyond 100, living long enough to not only witness, but become part of, the era of the photograph.
First daguerreotypes, and then glass-plate negatives became popular in the 1840s and 1850s; by 1853, some 70 years after the great and improbable American victory over the British, more than 3 million daguerreotypes a year were being produced in the United States alone.
As these photographic means developed, and the generation that experienced the Revolution firsthand continued to dwindle, a desire to document these men — a rapidly vanishing, living link with history — emerged.

Di started out photographing her son playing lacrosse when he was in 7th grade. Once he joined his high school lacrosse team, they had never had a parent who actually wanted to photograph the games,only pictures of their son's. Di wanted to make memories that would last the boys throughout their lives, so she took on the task. Di was the first full time team lacrosse photographer his high school ever had. Di started out using a Sony Super Steady Shot 15-200mm zoom lens and was their only photographer for her son's four years in high school. Di shot all his club tournaments as well. When her son went off to college, Di volunteered to be the team photographer for Metropolitan State University of Denver. After Di started writing for In Lacrosse We Trust, she also had her media credentials for full field access so Di started shooting the Outlaws games, the FIL and had the great opportunity to be at both the Outlaws semi-final playoff game and the MLL Championship game. In May of this year, Di bought a new camera, a Nikon D3200SLR with 3 different lenses. An 18-55mm zoom, a 55-200mm zoom & a 70-300mm zoom lense, and started getting even better shots. Now Di started her own photography business in the hopes that she can shoot lacrosse games, team photographs, etc. Di is in the process of setting up a website to begin selling some of her work. Di's Facebook page is Di Miller Photography. Di's Twitter account is @dimiller61. Di also posts pictures on her own FB page, Lacrosse is Awesome and the Metro State University of Denver Men's Lacrosse pages as well!

Please join me tonight as we listen to a man describe multiple experiences he had over a number of years while hunting in California. The encounters happened all within a small radius of one another, while he and his family hunted.
We'll listen to his theory as to why the encounters were non threatening, and we'll discuss his theory as to why these creatures did not appear to be bothered by human presence, and why this might be a bonifide bigfoot hotspot.
Karl and I will also discuss the possibility of Sasquatch being able to see within varies ranges within the Infrared Spectrum, and how using game cameras might be successfully employ to photograph these elusive creatures. As always, thanks for listening! See you all tonight!
After weeks of waiting the decision of the Grand Jury comes down...No Indictment. As expected, violence, destruction of property and mayhem erupt across the country.
We will start the morning recapping the events that put this small community into the international spotlight. Is this event a photograph of America 2014? Has this event been milked for the sake of politics, media ratings and/or used as a tool for "race baiting" and division of the country?
President Obama, Al Sharpton and hordes of other politicos, actors and activist take to the airways to put in their two cents...Help or Gas on the Flames?
Special guest Michelle Wiles, politico, candidate, activivist, wife and mother will join us "In the Pickle Barrel". Miles, a mother of six homeschooled children, somehow finds the time to not only "buck the system", but work to do something to create change.
Wiles will share her vision and why she is so involved. Perhaps just as important...how does she find the time!
Hope you will join us this morning at 8AM-10AM EST as we gather "In the Pickle Barrel" in search of a way to get out.
Barbara Yoshida is an adventurous traveler and photographer who fills her backpack with tent, sleeping bag, large format camera, film and tripod, then sets out to photograph natural forms, spiritual locations and women artists in countries from Sweden, throughout Europe to the Ukraine, Armenia, Israel, Morocco, The Gambia, Japan, and Mongolia. Camping with her family in northern Idaho was an early influence. She picked up a camera after twenty years as a painter and six years making sculpture, and spent several years doing printmaking, using photo processes. A half-dozen artist’s residencies for the National Park Service resulted in a series of color landscapes as well as a series of photogravure prints. Following ten years of photographing Neolithic standing stones in moonlight, her first book was produced:Moon Viewing: Megaliths by Moonlight, published by Marquand Books in 2014.

Your Child Wants to Join Army: What Do You Say?
By Mike McPhate
It can be a heart-sinking moment. Your child announces a desire to join the military at a time when the U.S. is waging two wars.
You honor the sacrifice of America's soldiers. But, as a parent, you’re selfish: Could you cope with a daily fear of the doorbell?
In his column today, the Post’s Courtland Milloy wrestles over how he might counsel his teenage son on his desire to become a soldier. He notes the hobbled economy’s role in his feelings -- the Army offers as much as $72,900 for college, plus big help in repaying loans.
What would you say to your child? And, how would the financial incentive factor into your thinking?
Join Zaiyah and Uptown this Veterans Day as we this very important and personal topic.
Today Jim and Jennifer welcome Tom Paladino to the show.
Tom Paladino has developed a treatment process, using a scalar instrument, whereby he is able to administer the scalar energy reverse-phase angle harmonic of a pathogen, thereby causing that agent of infection to disassemble or fall apart. He calls this a Pathogenic Cleanse. Scalar energy operates at the quantum level and is capable of disassembling all types of pathogens; for instance, virus, fungi, amoeba, parasites and protozoal infestations, thus eliminating the causative agent of disease. Once the causative agent of a pathogen disease has been eliminated the symptoms associated with that infection decrease or disappear altogether.
In addition to the Pathogen Cleanse, Tom Paladino has created the Nutrient Therapy and the Chakra Balance. The Nutrient Therapy broadcasts essential nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, phytochemicals, fatty acids, collagen and enzymes to the cells that are optimal for health. This is done via the scalar energy instrument, using your photograph and a highly magnified image of the essential nutrients. This broadcast sends vital information via the scalar wave and can be received by the cells in a human being, pet, farm animal, race horse, etc. Finally the scalar energy Chakra Balance is utilized to align and harmonize all seven (7) chakra. Receiving the Chakra Balance frequently throughout the 30 day period of the remote scalar energy sessions, many people report a new sense of well-being, calm, less anxious, more energy, motivation and an increased joy for living their life.

Francis X. Donnelly, in the Detroit News, tells the story of Detroiter Mamie Chalmers, who claims -- with significant evidence to back her up -- that she was one of the people blasted by a fire hose during a 1963 demonstration in Birmingham, Ala. The image became an iconic photo and did much to convey to the world the police brutality during the civil rights movement in the south.
Now the Detroit News has published a story saying that one of Birmingham’s most prominent civil rights activists, Carolyn McKinstry, 65, has for years been claiming to be the girl in a famous Life magazine photograph of demonstrators being blasted by water from a fire hose, while Mamie Chalmers, 71, the actual person in the photograph, lives in Detroit.
