Tonight Bonnie Kaye welcomes back author C. Gale Perkins who is an incredible author and humanist who has become a personal close friend of the host of the show.
The Baby’s Cross is a memoir about Gale, who is a tuberculosis survivor. She fought many obstacles in her life. At age two, a fall down the stairs was to take her life in a direction that seemed almost impossible to endure at the time. It led to her contracting tuberculosis. The losses in her life were many, including her mother, many other family members, and the loss of a normal childhood.
Gale was hospitalized for twelve years at the Lakeville State Sanatorium in Lakeville, Massachusetts with tuberculosis of the bone, which she contracted at the age of three. Gale tells about her experiences while in the hospital during her twelve years at the sanatorium, including when she was paralyzed from the waist down for two of these years due to an operation that went badly.
Gale feels that the experiences she had were ones that shaped her life into one of determination, compassion, faith, love and accomplishments. The story includes many miracles that she has experienced in her lifetime, miracles that have reinforced her spiritual beliefs. The real story behind Gale’s fall down the stairs became clear to her while she was driving along the highway. This is a true story of a young girl’s struggle to stay alive, and it will touch the readers’ hearts.
This book was also translated in Spanish by BOE's interpreter Frederick Martin-del-Campo. Gale will truly inspire you--as she has done me and so many others.

According to the World Health Organization, tuberculosis is second only to HIV/AIDS as the greatest killer worldwide due to a single infectious agent. In 2011 alone, an estimated 8.7 million new cases of TB occurred, leading to 1.4 million deaths. The primary co-infection of HIV, TB accounts for a quarter of all deaths among those living with HIV. And TB is second only to AIDS as a leading cause of death among women of childbearing age.
Historically, TB has killed more people than any other disease. Over 95% of TB deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries, and it is among the top three causes of death for women aged 15 to 44.
Our community of focus is South Africa. Why? South Africa has the second highest rate of new tuberculosis (TB) cases in the world, the highest rate of drug-resistant TB in Africa, and the fourth highest prevalence of HIV/AIDS. Although there is an existing National TB Control Program (NTP) with wide technical support from international agencies, there are still alot of gaps in the country's fight against the scourage of tuberculosis.
This week, we carefully consider key questions related to the pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of the disease; enunciate ongoing steps being taken to tackle TB in Sub-saharan with special focus on South Africa, and lessons to share with other African countries.
Global health is a research field at the intersection of medical and social science disciplines. Global health transcends the perspectives and concerns of individual nations. In global health, problems that transcend national borders or have a global political and economic impact, are often emphasized. It has been defined as 'the area of study, research and practice that places a priority on improving health and achieving equity in health for all people reducing disparities. One of the greatest accomplishments of the international and global health communities since then was the eradication of smallpox. The last naturally occurring case of the infection was recorded in 1977. The global agenda abruptly changed in 1979 to an alternative strategy deemed “Selective Primary Health Care”. Major reductions in the burden of malaria have been achieved by improved prevention and treatment. Tuberculosis, which has social and environmental determinants now show emergence of multiple antibiotic-resistant strains. hundreds of millions of people are developing drug-resistant TB, most of them poor. An economic perspective emphasizes the cost-effectiveness and cost-benefit approaches for both individual and population health allocation. There are many perspectives and approaches to take when it comes to issues of global health. A political approach emphasizes economic considerations applied to global health (cost/benefit analysis). The journalist, Laurie Garrett suggests that conflicts in approach to solutions hinder funding and philanthropic efforts to properly control disease.
There are dangers to having divergent perspectives as exemplified by Andrew Natsios of USAID, when he proclaimed that antiretrovirals should not be distributed to HIV-stricken Africa due to the occupants lacking a concept of time and clocks to properly facilitate the proper sequence of drug consumption.

Chapter 1: Farm Bill and Food Stamps
Another fight concerning the Farm Bill has erupted over reapplying more stringent work standards for those receiving food stamps. In particular, those designated able-bodied and work capable individuals between the ages of 16 and 59 are expected to either work or perform some kind of job training while they receive assistance. Those requirements have been largely relaxed since the beginning of the recession, but now some legislators want to bring them back calling it a fair deal for those who receive assistance for a longer period of time. However, critics of the suggestion note that, despite the improvement of the economy overall, the unemployment rate has not significant decreased and many who rely on the assistance still lack jobs. We talk to Rachel Van Dongen , Congressional Editor for POLITICO.
Chapter 2: Supreme Court to Consider Whether Government Can Withhold Funding from Anti-HIV Organizations that Promote Legalizing Prostitution
The United States Supreme Court today heard the case of USAID v. Alliance for an Open Society, in which they are being asked to decide whether the federal government can refuse funding to non-profits that promote strategies they disagree with. In 2003 Congress passed the United States Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria Act which included language that would rescind funding from organizations that promote the legalization of prostitution as a way of curbing HIV-infections. Such organizations filed suit claim this is essentially censorship, a ban of their right to free speech. We talk to Megan Brown, a Partner at Wiley Rein who wrote a brief on behalf of the Rutherford Institute.
Chapter 3: Update on the Keystone XL Pipeline
We talk to Joe Duggan, Reporter with Omaha World-Herald
We have discussed universal health coverage, family planning and combating tuberculosis in Africa. We have highlighted the importance of universal coverage for all Africans, especially the poor who care barely healthcare. We also noted the relevance of strong primary healthcare in the development of a sustainable health systems that can effectively tackle contemporary and emerging diseases including malaria, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and non-communicable diseases. We boldly asserted that family planning is not just a woman's business, it is an all inclusive issue that requires the support of the man, the community, healthcare providers and the government.
These noble assertions can not achieved without appropriate leadership at all levels of health. Rwanda has been applauded for significant universal coverage of its citizens and improved health outcomes over the last decade. Leadership is penciled as a key factor. This will be our focus this week. According to Management Sciences for Health, "Rwanda’s extraordinary transformation has been widely attributed to strong central governance. Recent coverage in The Atlantic magazine and British Medical Journal has recognized the importance of Vision 2020, a development strategy that has set the tone and direction for Rwanda’s recovery. The government has used the strategy to align its efforts and those of the donor community."
What role did leadership in the success of Rwanda's healthcare? What lessons in leadership and management exist for other countries in Africa, as the race to universal coverage gains momentum across the continent?
"Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship to restrict the art of healing to one class of Men and deny equal privileges to others; the Constitution of the Republic should make a Special privilege for medical freedoms as well as religious freedom."Those are the words of Dr. Benjamin Rush, noted physician, medical professor and an early surgeon general to all Continental armies. A signer of the Declaration of Independence, Rush represented Pennsylvania at the Continental Congress, but not before establishing himself as a popular physician and professor in Philadelphia. A noted humanitarian, Rush was also an important writer, having authored the first American textbook on Chemistry and ultimately contributing several essays to newspapers applauding the Patriot cause.Steven A. Ross, PhD is co-founder and CEO of the World Research Foundation. Dr. Rife’s true frequencies found on this page are not based on supposition, but hard evidence, gathered from all the known Rife documents and the actual analyzing of three original Rife machines that have been found. After reading this page you will want to read "Dr. Rife and Philip Hoyland's 3.30 MHz sweep" page.Dr. Rife's True FrequenciesBelow in the first chart are Dr. Rife's original primary frequencies that were used in his Rife Ray #3 and Rife Ray #4 Rife Machines. These are the primary frequencies he used to devitalize or render harmless the microorganisms he tested in his laboratory. If you want a higher resolution copy of this chart click here. When people hear about the famous 1934 clinic where 16 patients, some having cancer and some having tuberculosis, recovered, it was these primary frequencies that were used. You will notice that none of these frequencies are low audi
