  • If I am Man's Best Friend...

    in Pets

    I used to get so sick to my stomach when I would see an animal in distress. 
    I lived next to a man who regularly beat his dog that was chained up and I would have all sort of thoughts, like stealing the dog, or reporting him to authorities.
    And yet, something stopped me doing any of these things. Somewhere I knew that this dog was contributing to this man not beating his wife. And the dog was happy to see him, which was hard for me to fathom.
    So what is all this stuff that goes on in the world with us and dogs? We see them as Man's best friend, and yet there are so many areas where we mistreat them, starve them, abandon them and neglect them. 
    How does Charlie see the situation? What is possible to change this? Is it possible to create us living with others respectfully? Please join us for this time's conversation with Charlie about Man's Best Friend!

  • Understanding Your Child's Brilliant Brain with Dr Wallace and Dr Travis

    in Family

    In their groundbreaking book, Dharma Parenting: Understand Your Child's Brilliant Brain for Greater Happiness, Health, Success and Fulfillment, renowned scientists Dr. Robert Wallace and Dr. Frederick Travis draw on contemporary scientific research and the time-tested knowledge of Ayurvedic typology to explain our children's natural inclinations (i.e. why one child learns quickly and forgets quickly while another learns slowly and forgets slowly; why one child is hyperactive and another slow moving; or why one falls asleep quickly but wakes in the night while another takes hours to fall asleep). Combining this with the latest understanding of how the brain is shaped by natural maturation, Wallace and Travis show parents how to better understand their child's natural inclinations and corresponding strengths and weaknesses.
    Using a simple quiz to ascertain their children's unique brain/body type, readers will learn:
    What kinds of foods best support each individual child's brain/body type Which routines best suit each brain/body type How to choose activities that bring each child greater enjoyment and well-being How parents can determine their own brain/body type, and how it impacts their relationship with their kids How parents should alter their parenting approach for each age group Robert Keith Wallace is a pioneering researcher on the physiology of consciousness. His research has inspired hundreds of studies on the benefits of meditation and other mind-body techniques.
    Frederick Travis is a world-renowned neuroscientist who has discovered brain wave patterns in children and young people that correlate with greater moral reasoning, happiness, emotional stability, and academic performance.

He always stives to produce the highest quality animals possible. You can find him on instagram @artgeckos
    About us: We are reptiles enthusiasts from Brooklyn, New York and we have always been some of the many that ask ALOT of questions about an animal before buying them. We have always had the same dilemma with nearly every breeder we encountered; communication!  We always wanted to keep breeders on the phone forever and ask them any question that came to my mind, however we knew that was not possible since they have personal lives just like we do our selves. We wanted to create a platform where breeders and their fans can connect while sharing knowledge at them same time. After 18 months of trial and error Empire State Reptiles Live was born. We hope that you all find our show enjoyable and that you tune in for many years to come!

About Family

Like the TV show, modern families come in all shapes and sizes. Many children are a product of divorce, are in touch with both their biological and adopted parents, have two moms or two dads (or both), or are being raised by their grandparents. No matter how atypical the face of today's family, the values stay the same: love and support. Moms and dads will find plenty of support in BlogTalkRadio's parenting shows, especially those about time-management topics that fit both stay-at-home and working parents: organizing kids' activity schedules, decluttering, reducing the workweek, managing stress, making quick meals and more. We've also got shows about friendship – you know, your family of choice rather than family of origin. Just remember: everyone's family seems dysfunctional in its own way. And family may irritate you, but more often than not, you can always count on family to pick you up from the airport.
