It's October of 1993 in Hawaii. A drunk driver hurtles toward a bend in the road. From the opposite direction, accomplished advertising creative and triathlete Phil Slott takes a routine drive. As he eases into the bend, he meets the drunk driver skidding into the wrong lane and, in one second, Phil's life takes a dramatic turn. As he struggles to stay alive in the ICU, Phil's organs, bones, and much of his brain are broken. What he and everyone else come to realize is that his creative drive and passion remain intact. And these abilities serve as the foundation for his arduous yet inspiring road to recovery. This is more than his story. Written in collaboration with his wife, Mary Spears, Damage Control: A Brain Injury Survivor Helps You Beat the Odds, is a tough-love conversation and guide for those who have survived a traumatic brain injury (TBI). It is intended to help other survivors regain hope and quality of life. Available on AMAZON more info: http:// www.philslott.com. Welcome to another episode the Brain Injury Round Table. I am your host, Constance Miller, brain injury survivor of 32 years; author of the original brain injury owner's manual entitled From The Ashes. This innovative guidebook was featured on Super Bowl XXXIV. Miller is Managing Director of Brain Injury Resource Center, located on the Internet at http://www.headinjury.com. Also joining us is Tai Campbell, my invaluable contributor tireless community activist, and founder of Taken Back Our Community (TBOC) http://www.tbocnow.org. He is the survivor of an incredible history of childhood brain injuries. I'd like to thank: all our listeners for bringing our voices, to your home, or your mobile device wherever you are around the world. Additionally, I’d like to give a big thank you to this show’s sponsors: Martha Marcum, mother of a brain injury survivor and author of MARTHA'S FABLES and Gordon Johnson, attorney of http://www.TBILaw.com
Most rear-end collisions are caused by distracted drivers or drivers following too closely to the car ahead. In either case, it is the unsuspecting driver in the car ahead who may suffer whiplash, which may result in a variety of injuries such as problems with light sensitivity, depth-perception problems, tinnitus, memory problems, concentration, and balance. The list goes on and on and on.
Deb Angus, brain injury survivor and author of “Regaining Consciousness: My Encounter with Mild Brain Injury--the Silent Epidemic," will share her story about how she and her husband were sitting at a stoplight and how a distracted driver changed her life forever.
Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, an IED blast, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slips from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating.
But as Yogi Berra once said, “If you come to a fork in the road, take it.” Life is all about choices!

For an Illusionist to fool the audience, their deceit must go unseen and to this end they craft an illusion to avert attention from reality. While the audience is entranced, the deceptive act is committed, and for the fool, reality then becomes inexplicably built upon on a lie. That is, until the fool wakes up and recognizes the truth in the fact that he has been duped. (Like "Santa Claus")
However, for some maintaining the suspension of disbelief in the illusion, is often more comforting than acknowledging being duped. Join the show tonight to discover the six top illusions most experience with not only a TBI but with LIFE as well and how you can start seeing things as they truly are: Glorious, Radiant and SPECTACULAR!
Uncle Mark and Brandon are both back in the Frat House Sports garage chatting up the results from last week’s season-opening Daytona 500 and this week’s Race #2 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
That “Pesky” team member Joey Logano came right out of the gate and (probably) has already stamped his ticket into “The Chase” . . . six months from now. But what also came out of last week’s Daytona festivities was the loss of not one, but both of the Busch boys.
A few in the media were comparing the indefinite suspension of Kurt Busch by NASCAR to the NFL’s situation with Ray Rice, but is THAT a fair comparison? Meanwhile others are criticizing NASCAR and Daytona for the possible season-ending injury to Kyle Busch following a wreck in the Xfinity Series in the Monster Energy #54. Is THAT a fair criticism?
Finally, this is Jeff Gordon’s final year of competition before he retires. How can that be? He looks like a baby. Well, it’s time to play “Guess that Driver’s Age” . . . and, well, does age really matter in motor sports?
As usual, they've got the coffee. You bring the donuts and bring enough for the guys parked right now over in the "Frat House Sports Garage" . . . oh, and be sure to give them a call at 347 - 826 - 9964!

In recent weeks, we have witnessed the roll out of a massive promotion of vaccination by government, media and their partner corporations in the U.S. and elsewhere. The clear goal is a massive increase in the number of vaccines being administered to the public and especially to children, the demonization of those who choose to avoid vaccines, the goal of forced vaccination, and the increasingly common suggestion that those who question the religion of vaccination "science" should be put in prison for daring to question its validity.
I am sure Israel knows what Obama is really up to in the take down of the USA and the destruction of the Chosen people, How any American of Jewish heritage can stand by and watch a communist party destroy the very fabric of Israel and continue to donate to it's destruction by supporting an Islamo commo. Where is the gain as the anti semetism thermometer rises?
You know there is a percentage of people who hide their hatred for a strong adversary until that adversary is weakened. Then they show their true colors as they come in for the kill. A handful of moslems have hijacked an entire religion. The stronger they get the bigger the handful gets.
I do not trust Boehner nor McConnell but Boehner has smidgened Obama Bin Laden with this invitation to Netanyahu. We all remember the death of his brother in the raid on Entebe when mighty nations trembled afraid to do the right thing. Once again little Israel taught how to do the right thing. When Obama's jihadists in government warn Iran that Israel has made a refueling arrangement for their jets with Azerbaijan you know the last country to get the word Israeli planes are headed towards Iran nuke sites will be us. The American people don't trust this communist junta why would anybody else?
To add insult to injury as if Netanyahu was the Queen of England. Obama Jim Crowed this prime minister insisting he leave by the back door going past the garbage. This anti American president like to flip the bird at his enemies. That is why he made combat trained Marines hold his umbrella while his staff laughed behind French doors.We all remember his crotch salute to the American flag. This guy was vetted by the communist party and selected for the final take down USA.
SO BEBE BABY open our eyes to this imposters betrayal of your country and mine. When you come update us on what Hanoi John kerry is still doing to us again.
