    Meet Russell Eric Dobda, author of "How to Spin the World Around with Cheap Travel, Technology and Mindfulness". Russell writes, "In 2013, I embarked on a yearlong journey around the world. It started with a series of synchronicities, and ended with insights I never could have imagined … living on under $10 a day in some places and averaging about $60 a day across the entire trip around the world, including all of my transportation, lodging, and food … [and] massages, party favors, and tourist activities. I visited 24 countries on 38 flights that averaged less than $100 each. I stayed for free with locals, who I didn’t meet in person until I arrived at their home. I lived like a local in every city instead of as a tourist hooked on tour books…" Tips for "Solo Travel 101: What Every Single Woman Should Know". www.spintheworldaround.com

    Goa, actress Stefanie Powers, Friendly Planet travel

    in Travel

    National Geographic International (now FOX) producer, Dawn Drew, has been to India more than 100 times and she recently spent three months filming around the country.  Dawn says that each visit to India offers something new and that travelers should go beyond the iconic attractions for an authentic travel experience.  We'll also talk about the state of Goa--the popular resort that you may not have heard of.

    Actress Stefanie Powers, best known for her role as Jennifer Hart in the television series "Hart to Hart", leads a double life, one in front of the camera or on stage and the other as a chamption for animal preservation and protection.  She started both interests at an early age.  When she was 15 years old she took to the stage but her love and protection of animals started with a rat named Petey much earlier.   Stefanie helped create the William Holden Wildlife Foundation in memory of her long-time partner and she supports animal conservation efforts of several other organizations.  Stefanie also continues her craft on camera and the stages around the world.

    Friendly Planet Travel is a popular group tour operator that we first became acquainted with during a trip to South Africa for our honeymoon.  We discovered the amazing price points that Friendly Planet offered for a great value.  Apart from the competitive tour prices, the mission of Friendly Planet and its backstory reflects courage, love, luck and transformation.  We spoke to founder, Peggy Goldman, about how travel helped her heal and reinvent herself following a divorce and loss of her son.

    "The psychic distance between love and hate could be the mechanical difference between a smile and a sneer, or it could be the journey of a nervous impulse form the depths of one’s brain to the tip of one’s toe.  But this impulse in its path through North america nerves may, if it is honest, find the passage disputed: may find the leap form the fiber of hate to that of love too taxing on its meager store energy—and so the long trip back may never be completed, may end in reconnaissance, a compromises, and then a lie..... "

    This myth of the creation of the white race, called “Yacub’s History’” is an inversion of the racial death-wish of American Negroes today.  Quite simply, many Negroes believe, as the principle of assimilation into white America implies, that the race problem in America cannot be settled until all traces of the black race are eliminated.  Toward this end, many Negroes loathe the very idea of two very dark Negroes mating.  The children, they say, will come out ugly. What they mean is that the children are sure to be black, and this is not desirable.  What they mean is that the children are sure to be black, and this is not desirable.  From the widespread use of cosmetics to bleach the black out of one’s skin and other concoctions to take Africa out of one’s hair, to the extreme, restored to by more  Negroes than one might wash to believe, of undergoing nose thinning and lip-clipping operations, the racial death-wish of american Negroes—Yacub’s goal—takes its terrible toll. What has been happening for the past four hundred years is that the white man, through his access to black women. has been pumping his and genes of the blacks—i.e., has been fulfilling Yacub’s plan and accelerating the Negroes on death-wish."
