Jamie Masada: The Laugh Factory Impresario's Biography

For Jamie Masada and comedy, it was love at first sight. Jamie's passion for comedy started from age 6 when his father a cantor and accordion player rewarded him for being good by taking him to see his first moving picture. The two stood outside the window of a local TV repair shop mesmerized by The Three Stooges. Although the TV wasn't getting the best reception and the two couldn't hear the movie through the glass, Jamie's father invented his own clever story to the delight of his young son. Jamie stood with wide-eyed amusement transfixed to the broken television screen and laughed until he cried. His father then said something to him that set the stage for the rest of his life, "making people laugh is the greatest mitzvah of all." Masada also inherited his father's comedic chops. At a wedding, almost a decade later, a Hollywood producer spotted Jamie doing a Three Stooges reenactment and encouraged his father to send the young talent to America. Confident in his son's abilities, Masada's father pawned his beloved accordion to help raise the funds necessary to send his son to The United States.

Barely 14 years old, Masada arrived in America with a big heart and an even bigger dream. He soon found himself sleeping in a garage and working odd jobs to make money to send back to his family. However, none of these obstacles deterred him from his passion for comedy.

His persistence paid off. Although he barely spoke English which he mixed in with Hebrew and Farsi, he was soon working with comedians in a comedy club. Such comedic geniuses as Richard Pryor, David Letterman, Jim Carrey, Rodney Dangerfield, Red Foxx and Neal Israel, took Masada under their wings.

A dispute over club owners refusing to pay comedians drove Masada to create The Laugh Factory in Groucho Marx's old building at the age of 16.

With a small loan from Neal Israel, he was able to turn his dream into reality, while simultaneously helping comedians


Recognizing Jamie's passion, Richard Pryor was the first comedian to serenade the Laugh Factory stage in 1979. Masada offered to pay Richard, instead Pryor handed him a hundred dollar bill and wrote on it, "You need this for your rent, boy."


Masada has always been ahead of his time and was called a true visionary by the LA Times. He earned this reputation through brilliant marketing strategies and business ventures- inspired by his passion for comedy.


As the country was gripped with the fear of the AIDS epidemic, The Laugh Factory was the first business in America to provide condoms to its customers. This stroke of marketing genius brought the Laugh Factory national exposure and Masada became a hugely sought after guest on the national press junket. Over the next three decades, Jamie Masada would constantly return to the forefront of national media. In 1985, Masada marched down Pennsylvania Avenue with Bob Hope, Phyllis Diller, Red Foxx, amongst many others in The Laugh Factory's campaign to send the first comedian into space. The campaign drew so much attention that President Regan asked Bob Hope to arrange a meeting with Masada.



USA Today called The Laugh Factory the number one comedy club in the country.


Masada seems to always meet great success each time he has put his passion behind a project. In 1983 he launched The Laugh Factory Magazine. After two years of self-publishing, he was approached for national distribution by Warner Publishing. Although he declined to sell his magazine he still possessed a desire to work with Warner Brothers and shared his vision for an all comedy channel and comedy awards.


Masada has enjoyed a lengthy career as a consultant and producer on some of Hollywood¹s most successful comedy film franchises; as well as on numerous network and cable television shows. His knowledge and expertise has made Masada the leading authority on all things comedy and his advice is very highly regarded amongst the entertainment industry's top power brokers. Many in the industry seek his guidance and he remains a huge mentor to countless superstars and industry professionals.



Masada produced the late-night show 'Vibe' with Quincy Jones. Masada's knack for spotting talent and his uncanny business genius is superbly illustrated by his work with 'In Living Color.' He was instrumental in getting the producers to audition two of its biggest break-out stars, Jim Carrey and Jamie Foxx. Masada, along with Bob Israel, were the driving forces to get 'Ace Ventura: Pet Detective' off the ground.



Most recently, Masada produced a film with Damon Wayans 'Behind the Smile at The Laugh Factory' with numerous popular comedians.


Masada's passion for comedy is closely matched by his charitable contributions. His work with underprivileged children won him a NAACP Freedom Award, The Ellis Island Medal of Honor for humanitarian efforts, as well as the ACLU Freedom of Speech Award, among many others.

Jamie Masada's vision to spread laughter throughout the world will continue in 2008 with the opening of The Laugh Factory in Atlanta, Tampa, Long Beach and Las Vegas.

French doctor claims to have found 'miracle cure' for alcoholism


The End of My Addiction >by Olivier Ameisen


Baclofen is a prescription-only drug used as a muscle relaxant in conditions such as MS and dystonia. Exactly how it might work to control alcoholic cravings is not clear, but it is known to help reduce levels of dopamine - the brain chemical associated with pleasurable feelings.

Dr Ameisen believes baclofen also helps by replacing gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB) - a substance in the body important for our ability to relax. A deficiency leads to anxiety, muscular tension and/or depression. To deal with these, people often 'self-medicate' with drugs such as alcohol. (Experts acknowledge that alcoholism

may be a disease characterised by a GHB deficiency in the brain.)

One of those persuaded by Dr Ameisen's findings is Dr Jonathan Chick, consultant psychiatrist at NHS Lothian Alcohol Problem Services and chief editor of the journal Alcohol And Alcoholism.

Dr Chick was the first to publish Dr Ameisen's discovery. 'While this is a controversial area, we believe the research into baclofen in treating alcoholism is merited,' he says.

'We know baclofen can't help every alcoholic; but in normal treatment programmes, two-thirds of patients relapse within three months. On baclofen, only half of them did.'

This is now official material.

Obama Ignores Disasterous Storms in Kentucky

Thursday, February 5, 2009 9:35 AM

By: Bradley A. Blakeman




In civilian and military circles alike, >The Pentagon's New Map became one of the most talked about books of 2004. "A combination of Tom Friedman on globalization and Carl von Clausewitz on war, [it is] the red-hot book among the nation's admirals and generals," wrote David Ignatius in The Washington Post. Barnett's second book, Blueprint for Action, demonstrated how to put the first book's principles to work. Now, in Great Powers, Barnett delivers his most sweeping— and important—book of all.

For eight years, the current administration has done much to disconnect or alienate America from the world, but the world has certainly not been standing still. Now, with a chance to start over, what do we do? Where's the world going now, and how do we not only rejoin it but become a leader again in what has become the most profound reordering of the globe since the end of World War II?

In Great Powers, Barnett offers a tour de force analysis of the grand realignments that are both already here and coming up fast in the spheres of economics, diplomacy, defense, technology, security, the environment, and much more. The "great powers" are no longer just the world's major nation-states but the powerful forces, past, present, and future, moving with us and past us like a freight train. It is not a simple matter of a course correction but of a complete recalibration, and the opportunities it presents are far greater than the perils. Barnett gives us a fundamental understanding of both, showing us not only how the world is now but how it will be.

There are those writing now who say America is in decline . . . and we just have to deal with it. Barnett says no. Globalization as it exists today was built by America—and now it's time for America to shape and redefine what comes next.

>Louie will talk w/ Barnett today on just how America needs to do just that !

(Thomas P.M. Barnett is a strategic planner who has worked in national security affairs since the end of the Cold War and has operated his own consulting practice (Barnett Consulting) since 1998. Tom founded a consulting partnership with two other outstanding individuals called The New Rule Sets Project LLC. The consultancy was acquired by Enterra Solutions, LLC. in August of 2005, with Dr. Barnett as Senior Managing Director.


A >New York Times-bestselling author and a nationally-known public speaker who's been profiled on the front-page of the> Wall Street Journal, Dr. Barnett is in high demand within government circles as a forecaster of global conflict and an expert of military transformation, as well as within corporate circles as a management consultant and conference presenter on issues relating to international security and economic globalization. An award-winning teacher, Prof. Barnett has written for Esquire, Wired, and the Washington Post, and has been interviewed in >Rolling Stone>, Epoca (Brazil), and Nihon Keizai Shimbun (Japan's Nikkei News). Having granted numerous interviews since 9/11, Tom Barnett has been described by U.S. News & World Report's Michael Barone as "one of the most important strategic thinkers of our time.")

Elizabeth Clare Prophet’s daughter Erin joins me to expose the flawed thinking that led to her mother’s “apocalyptic prophecies”

>Erin Prophet was 15 when she first set eyes on Montana in 1981, a passenger in a single-engine Cessna flying into Billings Logan International Airport.


Piloting the plane was her soon-to-be stepfather, Edward Francis. Sitting behind him was Prophet’s mother, Elizabeth Clare Prophet, leader, spiritual mother and prophet to the thousands of members worldwide of the

Church Universal and Triumphant.

The small group was in Montana that September to tour the newly purchased 12,500-acre ranch at Corwin Springs, in the Paradise Valley south of Livingston. The church known as CUT moved its headquarters there five years later.

Erin Prophet had no idea that not quite nine years after that plane ride, she and members of the by-then-infamous New Age sect would head into underground shelters they had built, believing the world was about to descend into nuclear chaos. Or that she would help set the date when that momentous action would take place.

Or that just two years after that, her mother would exhibit signs of dementia and eventually be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

Despite the fact that Elizabeth Clare Prophet’s mind has deteriorated to the point where she can no longer care for herself, let alone lead the religious group she founded, CUT remains in existence, still based in Corwin Springs. The longtime leader now lives in a basement apartment in private care in Bozeman.


Marwan Sabbagh, M.D., board-certified geriatric neurologist, hopes to work himself out of a job. As founder and director of clinical research at Sun Health Research Institute’s Cleo Roberts Center for Clinical Research, Dr. Sabbagh had dedicated his entire career to finding a cure for Alzheimer’s and other age-related neurodegenerative diseases.


Dr. Sabbagh is a leading investigator for several prominent national Alzheimer’s prevention and treatment trials, including Alzheimer vaccine studies. He has authored and co-authored more than 70 medical and scientific articles on Alzheimer’s research, and this year published his first book, The Alzheimer’s Answer.

Chemicals 'may reduce fertility'


FRANCE 24 reporters Cyril Vanier and Frank Berruyer take us to the streets of Youngstown, Ohio, one of America’s fastest-dying cities.

Ten years ago Bruce Springsteen wrote his now-famous lament to Youngstown. Since then very little has changed.

In the 1970s, when steel work was in its prime, the town was a flourishing industrial centre. Today, all the old factories have closed down and the place is almost a ghost-town. Unemployment runs at 10%. Hundreds of the town’s 60,000 citizens leave Youngstown each year in search of employment and better prospects. In the past thirty years, Youngstown has lost half of its population.

Those left behind struggle to make ends meet. Scrappers in junk-yards sift though rubble for shreds of metal that can be sold to used-car garages. “This is what you do in Youngstown, to survive. Feed your family, pay your rent,” says one scrapper.

With another financial crisis looming, many are afraid that things will become even worse.

Just weeks before the presidential elections, all eyes are on the two presidential candidates, Barack Obama and John McCain, with hopes that they will implement policies that will improve living and working conditions. Ohio is a key swing state eyed by both candidates. But will they keep their promises to the jobless and the desperate?

Join me TODAY-Wednesday.21Jan.09 at EIGHT O'CLOCK AM ! I'm 'standing' in for Tracey Winbush on her Morning Coffee Show

--Brainfood from the Heartland follows at 10am.

I received this essay,

from Gov.Mario Cuomo,

describing a major difference between

President Obama and President Lincoln, - :

"On Feb. 12, three weeks into the administration of our 44th president, Barack Obama, America will mark the 200th birthday of our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln — considered by most historians to be our greatest president ever.

The competition by presidents and presidential candidates to claim the mantle of Lincoln in ways big and small has come to embrace all political faiths. Obama is no exception. He will be the first President to be sworn in on the same Bible used by Lincoln in 1861, having arrived in Washington from Philadelphia by train as Lincoln had, and he has mentioned several times that he is studying Lincoln’s speeches for help in preparing his own inaugural address.

Obama’s inauguration started what will be the most challenge-ridden presidential term since Lincoln’s. Only history will eventually tell us how it compares with Lincoln’s, but there are already apparent similarities and differences in their personalities, positions and situations that indicate the kind of leadership we can expect from Obama.

Obama, like Lincoln, has superb personal gifts: a brilliant analytical mind, riveting oratorical and writing abilities, and the capability to remain calm under fire. Both were born and raised in modest circumstances. Neither had significant executive experience before becoming president, and both were considered underdogs at the outset of their campaigns.

Obama, like Lincoln, rejects rigid ideology in policymaking, relying instead on common sense, benign pragmatism, and an overarching grand concept designed to inspire and unify us. Lincoln grasped that single-most important concept that would sustain and provoke him for the rest of his days: the Declaration of Independence’s achievable goal of equality and opportunity.

To Lincoln — and now to Obama — this is not only a lofty dream or sweet poetry to soothe the soul by wrapping it in high aspiration. It was and is the attainable goal of flesh-and-blood humans who would have to find ways to provide fairly rewarded work, education, health care, security in our older years, and most of all, equality of opportunity and the right to be treated with dignity.

Lincoln respected the indispensable need for a market-system economy in achieving these goals, but he also realized that while the market is essential to a successful economy, it is not by itself sufficient to assure it. For that reason Lincoln urged that government be used aggressively to meet the needs the market economy failed to satisfy. Obama has already demonstrated clearly that he, like Lincoln, will not hesitate to call for substantial governmental assistance in the effort to right the Ship of State in today’s troubled waters. Obama also shares Lincoln’s extraordinary vision. Lincoln looked beyond the superficial differences that God or history had imposed on us to see the essential truths that unite us. He sympathized vigorously with the cause of democracy in other lands, in Hungary and South America and Greece. He understood that a respect for individual dignity and the equality of all people was the essential foundation, not just for his American family, but for the whole human race.

Lincoln knew, as Obama surely does, that we cannot end terror here, in the Middle East or anywhere in the world just by having the world’s most powerful weapons and the best fighting force. We have to add to this force whatever is needed to provide the realistic hope for opportunity and dignity that quiets people’s rage and produces peace here at home and across the globe.

Because Obama shares much of Abraham Lincoln’s personality and many of his fundamental beliefs, his leadership could give our nation the chance to live the American dream as Lincoln perceived it, an opportunity that Lincoln himself was denied by an assassin’s bullet.

But Obama’s leadership could mean much more. While there are significant similarities between Obama and Lincoln, there’s a vast and important difference between the circumstances faced by the two in their first term as president. Lincoln focused his 1861 inaugural address on the one issue that eventually dominated his political career — slavery in the United States and how it would affect the Union. In the first moments of his inaugural address, Lincoln dismissed the other issues facing him as creating neither excitement nor anxiety.

Obama, on the other hand, has literally scores of daunting global issues to deal with, and his success or failure will have an impact worldwide. Obama will be the president and commander in chief of the dominant superpower in a world that has more than 6 billion human beings, many of whom depend to one extent or another on the nation Obama will lead.

Never before has there been a nation with such tremendous influence on the entire planet — a planet infested with weapons of mass destruction possessed by dozens of nations, many of them hostile to one another, some already at war and others poised at the brink. Further menacing the planet is the inconvenient truth of global warming, terrorism, pandemics of various kinds, regular episodes of genocide, hunger threatening millions of human beings and now a badly wounded world economy, ailing in part because of a serious recession in the United States.

One hundred forty-eight years of globalization with its benefits and burdens make this a very different world from the one Lincoln lived and served in and one that will make Obama’s presidency much more consequential. Lincoln’s failure would have left scarred the face of America, extending the cruel tragedy of slavery and perhaps fracturing the Union. His success helped keep the American dream alive.

On the other hand, Obama’s failure would heighten the threat of unprecedented global damage ─ but his success could help lead our great nation and this entire threatened world into a new period of enlightenment and progress never before achieved.

And so, Obama’s moment in history is a unique one. There seldom has been more to concern us, but neither has there ever been more to hope for.

We should choose hope."

Deborah Nelson investigated an extraordinary archive: the largest compilation of records on Vietnam-era war crimes ever to surface. The declassified Army papers were erroneously released and have since been pulled from public circulation. Few civilians have seen the documents. The files contain reports of more than 300 confirmed atrocities, and 500 other cases the Army either couldnt prove or didnt investigate. The archive has letters of complaint to generals and congressmen, as well as reports of Army interviews with hundreds of men who served. Far from being limited to a few bad actors or rogue units, atrocities occurred in every Army division that saw combat in Vietnam. Torture of detainees was routine; so was the random killing of farmers in fields and women and children in villages. Louie will talk -today- with Deborah about these papers.

The program provides the authority for DoD to use any extra space on U.S. military cargo aircraft to transport humanitarian assistance materials donated by non-governmental organizations (NGOs), international organizations (IOs), and private voluntary organizations (PVOs) for humanitarian relief.

The Mission of Love organization, since incipience 1989, has been able to help the poor of third world countries , Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and the Hurricane victims through it's airlifts and truck transports of medical supplies, clothes, school supplies, building supplies, and emergency vehicles. But this is only a band aid to a much larger issue. Mission of Love, is very much aware there is a long term objective to our relief effort. From the beginning, 1989 we have striven to help the worlds poor but we have been mindful that our efforts are a drop in the ocean if matched against the poverty and need amongst the disenfranchised of the third world countries and on the Indigenous Indian Reservations in America. As an organization, consisting of all volunteers, we recognize the need to empower communities at grass roots level so they can help themselves in the fight against poverty and helplessness.

Once convicted, he was stripped of his right to vote in the House under the chamber’s rules. The House Ethics Committee recommended that he be expelled from the House, and on July 25 the House voted 420-1 to expel him. Gary Condit was the lone “no” vote and there were nine members who voted “present.” Traficant was the first representative to be expelled since Michael Myers’s expulsion in 1980 as a result of the Abscam scandal.

After his expulsion, Traficant ran as an independent candidate for another term in the House while incarcerated in a federal prison. He received 15 percent of the vote (27,487 votes)

A Cincinnati area woman has again found Hope, her three-legged cat with that name whose disappearance led to an extensive search. Hope's owner, Norma Meece, had hired a pet detective as part of a nearly seven-week search costing more than $500 dollars after the cat disappeared from Meece's home in suburban Green Township.

Pictures of the missing pet were plastered all over the neighborhood, and the pet detective spent hours looking inside sheds and under porches with the help of a bloodhound.

Ercole Cavalieri -We'll be talking CANCER and Cancer prevention

>Ercole Cavalieri, D. Sc.

Dr. Cavalieri’s intuition that estrogens could be cancer-causing agents in our body came from the observation that these molecules contain in their structure a benzene ring. In fact, benzene itself was found to cause leukemia a long time ago. Studying the metabolism of estrogens and their reaction with DNA, he has understood how these molecules can become cancer-causing agents. Among the metabolites of estrogens, there are two specific ones that react with DNA and from that reaction arise the mutations that initiate breast, prostate and other human cancers. Nature, however, has designed a protective mechanism that prevents the estrogen metabolites from reacting with DNA. It is this protective mechanism that during our lifetime can be weakened by the influence of various factors, including diet, polluted environments and lifestyle. Preventium™ has the power to maintain this protective mechanism or to restore it if it has been weakened. The ultimate result is that Preventium™ inhibits estrogens from initiating cancer. Its widespread use would dramatically reduce the incidence of cancer throughout the world.

Senate Dems to Expand Search for Boccieri Replacement


- Senate Minority Leader Ray Miller (D-Columbus) announced today that the Senate Democrats would open up the process of replacing outgoing State Senator John Boccieri to include other candidates who may wish to apply.

Boccieri (D-Alliance), who currently represents the 33rd Senate District, was recently elected to Congress. He will be sworn in to Congress in January, when he will step down from the Ohio Senate.

Six candidates have already been nominated by the four county parties in the 33rd Senate District to replace Boccieri, they include: former Mahoning County Commissioner David Engler; Struthers Councilman-at-large Daniel Yemma; Poland trustee Robert Lidle; Brian R. Thomas of Perrysville; Alliance Councilman-at-Large Steve Okey, and Stacia Erdos Littleton, former news anchorwoman from Youngstown.

“We appreciate the efforts of the various county party chairs to work with us to fill this vacancy, and we believe we already have a good list of candidates to choose from,” Miller said. “However, we also want to expand the search to ensure we have a wider and more diverse pool of candidates to choose from, so that the voters of the 33rd Senate District will ultimately have the candidate who we believe can best serve in the manner that John Boccieri did.”

Senate Minority Leader-Elect Capri Cafaro (D-Hubbard) agreed.

“We think it’s important to expand the pool of talented and qualified candidates in this seat,” Cafaro said. “The Mahoning Valley, and the 33rd District overall, has a long and proud tradition of excellent Senate leadership that we want to uphold.”

Miller said that any individual who was interested in applying for the 33rd Senate seat can send an application to his office by Friday,

December 12. Qualified applicants are encouraged to send a cover letter and resume to:

Senate Minority Leader Ray Miller

Statehouse, Room 304


, Ohio 43215

Applications can also be emailed to: rmiller@maild.sen.state.oh.us. All applications will be reviewed, and all county-endorsed candidates and other candidates as determined by the Senate Democratic leadership team will be interviewed in the period after December 15.

>on animal cruelty and Ohio laws and lack thereof...

Cruelty to animals generally falls into two categories: direct violence and neglect.

Direct Violence: The types of direct violence that animals suffer every day at the hands of people include being beaten, mutilated, shot, set on fire or otherwise tortured. The intentional suffering inflicted on these animals can result in severe injury or death.

Neglect: Other animals suffer and die from neglect when they are denied proper food, water or shelter, causing them to slowly starve to death or die from exposure to freezing cold or sweltering hot temperatures. Hoarding animals can also cause suffering on a large scale.

Confronting Animal Cruelty

All 50 states have animal cruelty laws, and 44 of those state laws contain provisions making certain types of animal cruelty a felony offense(OHIO IS NOT ONE OF THEM !). The HSUS's Animal Cruelty and Fighting Campaign works to ensure that cruelty to animals is properly addressed and prosecuted. The campaign also helps strengthen animal cruelty laws. The HSUS also offers rewards of up to $5,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction in selected cruelty cases.

Our First Strike® program can help nip animal cruelty in the bud by exploring the link between domestic violence and animal abuse. First Strike® materials include useful information for parents, tips for teens and a list of safe havens for animals.

Working closely with our regional offices, The HSUS works on cruelty cases in all parts of the country.

Glutathione (GSH) is an antioxidant and detoxifying agent whose protective role has been demonstrated in numerous clinical studies. GSH is synthesized rapidly in the liver, kidneys, and other tissues of the body, including the gastrointestinal tract. This process is effected by aging and disease, as both of these conditions result in reduced tissue and blood levels of glutathione. Dietary forms of glutathione are efficiently absorbed into the blood, however the same is not true for glutathione supplements in humans. When healthy subjects were given a single dose of up to 3,000 mg of glutathione researchers found there was no increase in blood glutathione levels. (Witschi A, Reddy S, Stofer B, Lauterburg BH. The systemic availability of oral glutathione. Eur J Clin Pharmacol 1992;43(6):667-9.) The authors of this study concluded "it is not feasible to increase circulating glutathione to a clinically beneficial extent by the oral administrating of a single dose of 3 g of glutathione." Johnson and coworkers (Johnston CJ, Meyer CG, Srilakshmi JC. Vitamin C elevates red blood cell glutathione in healthy adults. Am J Clin Nutr 58:103-5, 1993) found that blood glutathione levels rose nearly 50% in healthy individuals taking 500 mg of vitamin C daily. Vitamin C facilitates an increase in blood glutathione levels by supplying the body with a nutrient that is critical to the manufacture of it. In addition, to vitamin C, dietary sources of glutathione and several other nutritional compounds can help increase glutathione levels including N-acetylcysteine (NAC), alpha-lipoic acid, glutamine, methionine, and undenatured whey protein (Bounous, G., and Gold, P., The biological activity of undenatured dietary whey proteins [Immunocal]: role of glutathione, Clin. Invest. Med. (1991) 14(4):296-309.). N-acetylcysteine has been used in combination with glutamic acid (or glutamine) and glycine (Clark, J. at www.cfsn.com) and in addition, NAC has been studied in combination with dietary proteins (Quig, D., Cysteine metabolism and metal toxicity, Alternative Medicine Review (1998) 3(4):262-270.).

HERBS: The herb milk-thistle, an excellent source of the antioxidant compound silymarin may help to prevent glutathione depletion in the liver. Silymarin is many times more potent in antioxidant activity than the better known antioxidant vitamins E and vitamin C. The protective effect of silymarin against liver damage has been demonstrated in a number of scientific studies. Silymarin has been shown to protect against liver damage by extremely toxic chemicals (this toxicity is mediated by their ability to produce dangerous and destructive unstable compounds called free radicals) including amanita toxin, carbon tetrachloride, galactosamine, and praseodymium nitrate. Silymarin enhances detoxification in the liver by preventing the depletion of glutathione. Glutathione in the liver is essential to the liver's ability to detoxify. The higher the liver glutathione content, the greater the liver's capacity to detoxify harmful chemicals. Chemicals which can damage the liver, (including alcohol and acetominophen), cause the concentration of glutathione in the liver is substantially reduced, making the hepatocytes (liver cells) susceptible to damage. Silymarin not only prevents the depletion of glutathione induced by alcohol and other toxins (Chrungoo VJ et al. Indian J Exp Biol. 1997 Jun;35(6):611-7.), but can increase the level of glutathione in the cells of the liver (hepatocytes) (Valenzuela A et al. Planta Med. 1989 Oct;55(5):420-2.), and possibly by up to 35%.

Curcumin may also be useful as an agent to increase tissue glutathione levels (Dickinson, D.A., Iles, K.E., Zhang, H., Blank, V., and Forman, H.J., Curcumin alters EpRE and AP-1 binding complexes and elevates glutamate-cysteine ligase gene expression, FASEB J. (2003) 17(3):473-475.)

Alpha Lipoic Acid has also demonstrated it's ability to increase glutathione levels and act as a potent antioxidant in numerous scientific studies.

VITAMINS & MINERALS: vitamin B6, riboflavin, and selenium are required in the manufacture of glutathione, and adequate dietary consumption of foods rich in (or supplementation with) these vitamins and minerals can help the body to optimize glutathione production.

MILK PRODUCTS & MEAT:Dietary glutathione occurs in highest amounts in fresh (uncooked) meats, in moderate amounts in certain raw fruits and vegetables, and is absent or found only in small amounts in grains and pasteurized dairy products (JONES DP, COATES RJ, FLAGG EW, et al. (1992) Glutathione in Foods listed in the National Cancer Institute's Health Habits and History Food Frequency Questionnaire. Nutr Cancer 17: 57-75 ). Foods richest in sulfur-containing amino acids are usually the best source of glutathione. Although undenatured whey protein is one of the best precursors (building blocks) for glutathione, it contains only moderate levels of naturally occuring glutathione. Freshly prepared (rare or raw) meats, raw (unpasturized) milk, and raw eggs are also an especially rich source of glutathione. Cooking reduces glutathione content, and storage also impacts the glutathione content of foods. In human breast milk put aside for later use by breast-fed babies, a 73-79% loss of glutathione occurred when the milk was either kept at room temperature or refrigerated for two hours. (Ankrah NA, Appiah-Opong R, Dzokoto C. Human breastmilk storage and the glutathione content. J Trop Pediatr. 2000;46(2):111-3.)

FRUITS & VEGETABLES: Fresh fruits and vegetables provide excellent levels of glutathione, but cooked foods contained far less or none at all, and highly processed foods contain less than minimally processed cooked foods. Glutathione assays of fruits and vegetables may yield contrasting results because glutathione levels vary both diurnally (KOIKE S, PATTERSON BD (1988) Diurnal variation of glutathione levels in tomato seedlings. Hort Sci 23: 713-714; SCHUPP R, RENNENBERG H (1988) Diurnal changes in the glutathione content of spruce needles (Picea abies L.) Plant Sci 57: 113-117 ) with the stage of development of the plant (EARNSHAW BA, JOHNSON MA (1987) Control of wild carrot somatic embryo development by antioxidants. Plant Physiol 85: 273-276;), and due to various environmental factors (DE KOK LJ, DE KAN PJL, TANCZOS OG, KUIPER PJC (1981) Sulphate-induced accumulation of glutathione and frost-tolerance of spinach leaf tissue. Physiol Plant 53: 435-438; WISE RR, NAYLOR AW (1987) Chilling-enhanced photooxidation. The peroxidative destruction of lipids during chilling injury to photosynthesis and ultrastructure. Plant Physiol 83: 272-277). Asparagus contains more glutathione than all other fruits and vegetables analyzed to date. (Jones, D.P. and others: Glutathione in foods listed in the National Cancer Institute's health habits and history food frequency questionnaire, Nutrition and Cancer 17 (1), p. 57, 1992.) In a study which compared the overall antioxidant activity of potatoes, bell peppers, carrots, onions and broccoli, potatoes ranked second highest after broccoli.

Per serving, asparagus, avocadoes, asparagus, squash, okra, cauliflower, broccoli, potatoes, spinach, walnuts, garlic, and raw tomatoes have the highest glutathione content compared to other vegetables and are particularly rich dietary sources of glutathione (please see the Table 1. below).

The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder

Vincent Bugliosi received his law degree in 1964. In his career at the L.A. County District Attorney’s office, he successfully prosecuted 105 out of 106 felony jury trials, including 21 murder convictions without a single loss. His most famous trial, the Charles Manson case, became the basis of his classic, Helter Skelter, the biggest selling truecrime book in publishing history. Two of Bugliosi’s other books—And the Sea Will Tell and Outrage—also reached #1 on the New York Times hardcover bestseller list. No other American true-crime writer has ever had more than one book that achieved this ranking. His latest book, Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy, has been heralded as “epic” and “a book for the ages.”

Bugliosi has uncommonly attained success in two separate and distinct fields, as an author and a lawyer. His excellence as a trial lawyer is best captured in the judgment of his peers. “Bugliosi is as good a prosecutor as there ever was,” Alan Dershowitz says. F. Lee Bailey calls Bugliosi “the quintessential prosecutor.” “There is only one Vince Bugliosi. He’s the best,” says Robert Tanenbaum, for years the top homicide prosecutor in the Manhattan D.A.’s office. Most telling is the comment by Gerry Spence, who squared off against Bugliosi in a twenty-one-hour televised, scriptless “docu-trial” of Lee Harvey Oswald, in which the original key witnesses to the Kennedy assassination testified and were cross-examined. After the Dallas jury returned a guilty verdict in Bugliosi’s favor, Spence said, “No other lawyer in America could have done what Vince did in this case.”

Bugliosi lives with his wife, Gail, in Los Angeles.

Born in Miami, Judge Young followed in his father’s footsteps when deciding a career. His father, attorney Burton Young, was elected President of the Florida Bar and is listed in the Best Lawyers in America, widely regarded as the preeminent referral guide to the legal profession of the United States.

A one-time law clerk for F. Lee Bailey's law firm in Miami, Judge David Young attended Tulane University, where he was President of the Student Body. He later graduated from the University Of Miami College Of Law. In 1984, he became a Florida assistant state attorney under Janet Reno, a position he held until 1987.

After holding several prestigious legal positions in Miami, he was elected as County Court Judge in Miami-Dade County in 1993. He was re-elected twice, and in 2000 Judge Young was elected as a Circuit Court Judge in Miami-Dade. He was re-elected twice to that position.

In May of 2007, Judge Young stepped down in order to take his passion for justice into the homes of millions of Americans as host of his new series, JUDGE DAVID YOUNG.

Judge Young sits on the board of the Miami-Dade Humane Society and devotes time to many animal rescue initiatives. He is a huge fan of Broadway musicals, and is an avid collector of penguin items. Judge Young often appears as a legal expert on national news outlets such as CNN’s Larry King Live, FOX News Channel and TruTV.

Young lives in Miami with his partner of 12 years, Judge Scott Bernstein, and their dog Maggie.

>Greg Copley of the Int'L Strategic Studies Association in Wash DC talks about the attacks in Mumbai and the murder of his friend and associate, Cypriot-born British

citizen Andreas Liveras.


from the UK's Times :

The only Briton confirmed to have died in the terror attacks in Bombay gave a harrowing account of the unfolding drama just moments before he was shot dead.

Andreas Liveras, 73, a British yachting tycoon who emigrated from Cyprus to London in 1963, telephoned the BBC from a locked room in the Taj Mahal Palace hotel as terrorists fired AK47 automatic rifles and set off grenades outside.

“The hotel is shaking every time a bomb goes off,” he said. “Everybody is just living on their nerves.”

Swiss voters back £14m-a-year health scheme to give addicts free heroin

Heroin users have been taken off the streets and crime by addicts has fallen 60 per cent since the scheme began

David Charter, Europe Correspondent

The free provision of heroin to addicts won the overwhelming support of Swiss voters yesterday.

Projections based on early results indicated that 69 per cent of voters approved the programme, believed to be the first of its kind in the world, in a poll called under the country's system of direct democracy.

Crime by heroin addicts has fallen 60 per cent since the initiative to allow health clinics to administer controlled doses of the drug began 14 years ago, according to the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health.

The support for the plan came in a referendum called by opponents of a government policy that treats hardened drug users as patients rather than criminals. Critics, including conservatives who called for the referendum, object to the annual cost of 26 million Swiss francs (£14 million), covered by the health insurance that all citizens pay and the Government covers for those who cannot afford it.

While the Swiss have a more tolerant attitute towards drugs than most European countries, a parallel referendum to legalise small-scale cannabis growing and use was soundly rejected by a margin of about two to one.

The heroin scheme was introduced in response to a public outcry over the sight of addicts openly injecting the drug in public parks, as well as a rise in HIV and hepatitis infection. About 1,300 addicts are currently on the programme of carefully supervised doses, measured to satisfy their cravings yet avoid the risks of overdose and catching infections from dirty needles.

The addicts attend one of the country's 23 heroin centres and, in groups of four, inject themselves under the watchful eye of a nurse. They leave after a few minutes — those with jobs going back to work.

Daniele Zullino, of the Geneva University Hospitals, one of the heroin centres, said: “The aim is that the patients learn how to function in society. Heroin prescription is not an end in itself.”

Dr Zullino added that after two to three years in the scheme, a third of the patients started abstinence programmes and another third changed to methadone treatment, a much cheaper option, and the preferred approach in Britain. The majority of users have tried and failed to use the heroin substitute to wean themselves off the drug. Methadone remains the more common treatment in Switzerland, with more than 16,000 patients.

Christoph Buerki, a doctor at the clinic in Berne, which has 210 patients, said: “Their average age is 40 now and they have an average of 13 years of heroin addiction before they enter this programme. Basically we are aiming at a group of people where everything else has failed. We have medicalised heroin in Switzerland. It has the image of an ugly illness, and that is why, I think, numbers of new addicts are falling.”

Andreas Kaesermann, a spokesman for the Social Democrat Party, part of the coalition Government, said: “Thanks to this policy we do not have open drug scenes anymore.”

Parliament approved the heroin measure in a revision of Switzerland's drugs law in March, but conservatives challenged the decision and forced a national referendum.

Alain Hauert, spokesman for the right-wing Swiss People's Party, said: “I don't believe that health insurance should pay for this.” He said that he wanted the State to invest more money in prevention work and law enforcement.

Sabine Geissbuhler, of the Parents against Drugs association, said that giving patients heroin was not helping them to give up the drug. “It is an outrage that the State should give addicts heroin — it is poison. You do not give people poison to make them better.”

The US, and the UN narcotics board are also critical, but other governments have followed with experimental programmes modelled on the system. The Danish parliament approved state funding for 500 addicts earlier this year. There is limited legal heroin prescribing in Britain for a small number of long-term addicts.

While the Swiss Government backed the heroin initiative, it opposed the call for marijuana legalisation because it feared that it could cause drugs tourism to Switzerland of the kind that is causing public disorder problems in border towns in the Netherlands. Oswald Sigg, a government spokesman, said: “This could lead to a situation where you have some sort of cannabis tourism in Switzerland because something that is illegal in the EU would be legal in Switzerland.”

Swiss MPs voted 106-70 against legalising cannabis for personal use last year. Switzerland has recorded the highest level of cannabis use in Europe, according to a study last July. The use of hard drugs was also increasing among 15-year-olds, according to a report by the Swiss Institute for the Prevention of Alcoholism and Drug Addiction.

The cost

— Drug-related crime costs England and Wales more than £13 billion a year

— Of the people who had HIV diagnosed in 2005, 56.8 per cent of Swiss nationals had contracted it through injecting narcotics

— A survey in 2005 showed that 88.4 per cent of addicts not using clinics occasionally or frequently shared needles

— A report in Scotland showed that 97 per cent of those treated with methadone went back to drugs, compared with 71 per cent who simply went cold turkey

— Regular heroin users have a 20 to 30 times higher risk of death than non-drug users

Bradley A. Blakeman, Republican strategist, consultant, entrepreneur:

When all is said and done, 2008 was a year of “Change” for Democrat’s by the selection of Barack Obama as their nominee for President and by our Country as the election of Barack Obama as our President. 2009 must be a year of change for the Republican Party not totally as a result of the 2008 “change” experienced at the ballot box, but, certainly a good time for it. Reduce...

The first step to a new and improved GOP begins with the selection of a new Chairperson this coming January. As we have seen with the selection of Barack Obama, (as the democrat’s nominee for President), the Democrats were looking for and hungry for change. They wanted new and dynamic leadership, a fresh face with big ideas. Obviously, the nation thought the same this November. Republican’s now are in need of that same kind of change. In 2009 and beyond, the GOP requires a strong nationally known leader, a person who can lead the party with authority and vision. The Chair must be a lead voice of opposition to a government totally controlled by Democrat’s with high majorities in both house’s of Congress. In addition, The Chair must be the aggressive defender and proponent of GOP principles both internally and externally. The GOP Chair must also have the ability to rally the Party as well as appeal to broader audiences. Leadership is the first key step to recovery of the GOP, everything else will flow from that.

arms and legs, making him unable to walk. Additionally, two steel rods were surgically attached to Patrick's spine

to correct scoliosis.

Despite circumstances that seem overwhelming to you and me, Patrick has overcome these physical issues to

excel as a musician and student. Patrick started playing the piano at the age of only nine months, and also plays the

trumpet and sings. He even participates in the University of Louisville School of Music Marching and Pep Bands

with help from his father (Patrick John Hughes), who tirelessly maneuvers his wheel chair through the formations

with the other 220+ members of the Cardinal Marching Band. Patrick is usually a straight 'A' student, having

received only 5 'B's' during his entire educational experience - up to and including his sophomore year of college.

A virtuoso pianist, vocalist and trumpet player, Patrick has won or finished very high in numerous

competitions, as well as winning awards acknowledging the circumstances he has overcome to achieve these

AAM Executive Director Scott Paul and AAM Senior Analyst Kerri Houston + Steven Cappazolla will be in-studio. Kerri and Scott are nationally recognized economic commentators with numerous appearances on CNN, CNBC, C-SPAN, and FOX NEWS. Their interview will focus on jobs and the economy in tandem with AAM’s Fall 2008 ‘Keep it Made in America’ National Town Hall Tour



, DC

. Sept. 26, 2008

Placing the issues of job loss and unfair trade squarely in the middle of the 2008 election, the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) today launched a public information campaign highlighting the importance of manufacturing jobs in an economy roiled by financial excess. The group will host nine national Town Hall meetings to emphasize its message.


>“Too many workers have seen the American Dream start to slip away: Foreclosures; massive consumer, government, and trade debt; jobs shipped overseas. There is real concern about the economic opportunities for the next generation,” said AAM Executive Director Scott Paul. “We’ve come to value financial instruments over products like automobiles and electronic equipment. But as we’re seeing in the news, you can’t build a strong economy on paper alone. We need to get back to basics.”



>AAM also is launching a media campaign that will run in both the battleground states of the industrial heartland and on the Internet. “Jobs and the economy are the top issues in this election, and voters want answers,” said Paul. “Will our leaders strengthen our economy, revitalize manufacturing and fight against unfair trade, or will they squander an historic opportunity? We have 40,000 factories closed over the past 10 years, 3.5 million manufacturing jobs lost. We’re going to make sure the candidates can’t duck these key questions.”

FRANCE 24 reporters Cyril Vanier and Frank Berruyer were recently on the show while in town from France 24 to do a story on the area. Their story is up .

Link to it by clicking below:

>FRANCE 24 reporters Cyril Vanier and Frank Berruyer take us to the streets of Youngstown, Ohio, one of America’s fastest-dying cities.

Ten years ago Bruce Springsteen wrote his now-famous lament to Youngstown. Since then very little has changed, and what little change there has been has not been for the better.

In the 1970s, when steel work was in its prime, the town was a flourishing industrial centre. Today, all the old factories have closed down and the place is almost a ghost-town. Unemployment runs at 10%. Hundreds of the town’s 180,000 citizens leave Youngstown each year in search of employment and better prospects. In the past thirty years, Youngstown has lost half of its population.

Those left behind struggle to make ends meet. Scrappers in junk-yards sift though rubble for shreds of metal that can be sold to used-car garages. “This is what you do in Youngstown, to survive. Feed your family, pay your rent,” says one scrapper.

With another financial crisis looming, many are afraid that things will become even worse.

Just weeks before the presidential elections, all eyes are on the two presidential candidates, Barack Obama and John McCain, with hopes that they will implement policies that will improve living and working conditions. Ohio is a key swing state eyed by both candidates. But will they keep their promises to the jobless and the desperate?











Most women notice that monthly, as if by magic, they have a group of days in which they look better, feel better, and respond better to the world around them. Their hair is glossier, their skin glows, and the men in their lives (or at the local Starbucks counter) suddenly seem very appealing. The men respond with equal enthusiasm and interest. They seem to know that these women are appealing, often very attractive, and receptive to men's attention. This phenomenon is not an accident or a fluke. It is very real and occurs regularly, according to a woman's hormonal cycle, specifically during the week that precedes ovulation. This cache of days, which happens around the same time each month, is what I have come to call the Venus Week.Rebecca Booth, M.D

"I'm joining the Libertarian Party because it is a party that combines a commitment to freedom and peace that can't be found in the two major parties that control the government and politics of America," Gravel said in a statement. "My libertarian views, as well as my strong stance against war, the military industrial complex and American imperialism, seem not to be tolerated by Democratic Party elites who are out of touch with the average American."

in 60 seconds:

The Large Hadron Collider is currently being installed in a 27-kilometer ring buried deep below the countryside on the outskirts of Geneva, Switzerland. When its operation begins in 2007, the LHC will be the world’s most powerful particle accelerator. High-energy protons in two counter-rotating beams will be smashed together in a search for signatures of supersymmetry, dark matter and the origins of mass.

The beams are made up of bunches containing billions of protons. Traveling at a whisker below the speed of light they will be injected, accelerated, and kept circulating for hours, guided by thousands of powerful superconducting magnets.

For most of the ring, the beams travel in two separate vacuum pipes, but at four points they collide in the hearts of the main experiments, known by their acronyms: ALICE, ATLAS, CMS, and LHCb. The experiments’ detectors will watch carefully as the energy of colliding protons transforms fleetingly into a plethora of exotic particles.

The detectors could see up to 600 million collision events per second, with the experiments scouring the data for signs of extremely rare events such as the creation of the much-sought Higgs boson

Friday.29.Aug.08 :


In 2007 - Peter J. Elliott,

> the United States Marshal for the Northern District of Ohio, has been named a “Top Cop” of the nation by the National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO). Marshal Elliott was selected for this prestigious award after being nominated by the Ohio Patrolman’s Benevolent Association and its President Terry Gallagher. The Top Cop Awards pay tribute to the men and women in law enforcement for their outstanding service to America’s communities. Marshal Elliott was chosen from hundreds of nominations from across the nation. Officers from only 10 states were selected for this Top National Law Enforcement Award and Marshal Elliott was the sole selection from the State of Ohio.

Cleveland Patrolman Wayne Leon was shot and killed by an individual wanted on a warrant, after which ,Marshal Elliott responded with the creation of

Fugitive Safe Surrender (FSS).>


Under this unique and innovative effort, the U.S. Marshals Service partners with local faith and community-based organizations to provide wanted fugitives a chance to surrender to authorities in a safe environment using churches as a place where fugitives can turn themselves in. FSS seeks not only to reduce the risk to law enforcement officers but it helps reduce the risk of accidental injuries or deaths in the communities where fugitives reside or seek refuge. Over the past two years, FSS projects in Cleveland and Phoenix have worked with pastors and other community leaders to help over 2,200 individuals, including more than 700 with outstanding felony charges, surrender safely to police authorities and begin the process of dealing with their criminal records and pending arrest warrants.

Marshal Elliott’s idea for this new innovated law enforcement program that partners with the faith based community was the first of its kind in the nation and has now been adopted as a national program by the United States Marshals Service.

Marshall Elliott will be in-studio Friday w/ Louie . He'll talk about his plans to creating a Fugitive Safe Surrender in THIS area! Oh, we'll also talk about the Stephanie Tubbs Jones connection .

Before there was a Woodstock Concert, there was Elliot Tiber working to make a go of his parents' upstate New York hotel, the El Monaco. It wasn't easy. The Jewish clientele who had returned to the Catskills year after year had discovered Florida, and the upstate hotel business was dying.

To save his family's livelihood, Elliot put on plays, musicals, and local festivals. In the process, Elliot became the area's official issuer of event permits--not that anybody else wanted that position. Elliot even worked weekends as an interior design artist in New York City, all in the hopes of helping his family.

In the summer of 1969, Elliot Tiber's life changed in a way he never could have foreseen. Greenwich Village had become the mecca for gays in America. There, Elliot had socialized with the likes of Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams, Andy Warhol, and a talented young photographer named Robert Maplethorpe, and yet had managed to keep his gay life a secret from his family. Then on Friday, June 27, Elliot walked into the Stonewall Inn--and witnessed the riot that would galvanize the gay movement in the United States. And on July 17, when Elliot read that the Woodstock Concert promoters had lost their license to stage the show in Wallkill, he called to offer his help in finding a new venue. In the days that followed, Elliot found himself swept up in a vortex that would change his life forever.

The events that unfolded during that hot New York summer have come to be recognized as major turning points in our cultural history. Few, however, have enjoyed Elliot Tiber's unique view of those events. Taking Woodstock is the funny, touching, and true story of the man who enabled Woodstock to take place. It is also the personal story of one man who took stock of his life, his lifestyle, and his future. In short, Taking Woodstock is like no history of Woodstock you have ever read.

Kate Brennan is like a lot of women: hesitant to love for fear of being hurt. Only her fears prove to be warranted, and the collateral damage she has suffered is far more devastating than a broken heart. Kate is a woman of simple tastes—and a complicated romantic past. So when she meets Paul, a wealthy, charismatic businessman with a great deal of free time, she’s wary of getting involved. Eventually, though, his charm wins her over. But when she catches him cheating and confronts him, the relationship quickly turns ugly. She let Paul into her life with trepidation; but now that the relationship is over, she can’t get him out

Irwin just got back from a trip to Rwanda sponsored by the Clinton Global Initiative. He went with a group of leading scientists, film, healthcare and business people. (He was the “spiritual” guy.) The group met with President Kagame and one of the themes they looked at was genocide—how a country is handling its own past, given that perpetrator and victim live side by side, and the lessons learned. Another theme was the juxtaposition of the beauty of the country and the terrible poverty.

Louie talks w/Geekonomics author:

David Rice

David Rice is an internationally recognized information security professional and an accomplished educator and visionary. For a decade he has advised, counseled, and defended global IT networks for government and private industry. David has been awarded by the U.S. Department of Defense for “significant contributions” advancing security of critical national infrastructure and global networks. Additionally, David has authored numerous IT security courses and publications, teaches for the prestigious SANS Institute, and has served as adjunct faculty at James Madison University. He is a frequent speaker at information security conferences and currently Director of The Monterey Group.

What is Geekonomics about? Geekonomics is about the astonishing lack of consumer protection in the software market and how this impacts economic and national security. Software buyers are literally crash test dummies for an industry that is remarkably insulated against liability, accountability, and responsibility for any harm, damages or loss that should occur because of manufacturing defects or weaknesses that allow cyber attackers to break into and hijack our computer systems. As a matter of good public policy, this is unacceptable and must change.

Geekonomics is also about us and why we behave the way we do when it comes to protecting ourselves in cyber space. As such, Geekonomics is about incentives. Specifically, Geekonomics is about incentives that affect three groups of people: consumers, software manufacturers, and hackers. Each group has incentives for making, buying, and breaking into computer systems that are rife with defects, errors, and weaknesses. This book explains these incentives and how new and different incentives are necessary to address the problem of “bad” software.

Finally, Geekonomics is a book for everyone, not just for geeks or technophiles, because frankly, in modern civilization, how and when software touches us is less our choice every day

Vincent Bugliosi returns !

>In The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder, Bugliosi presents a tight, meticulously researched legal case that puts George W. Bush on trial in an American courtroom for the murder of nearly 4,000 American soldiers fighting the war in Iraq. Bugliosi sets forth the legal architecture and incontrovertible evidence that President Bush took this nation to war in Iraq under false pretenses—a war that has not only caused the deaths of American soldiers but also over 100,000 innocent Iraqi men, women, and children; cost the United States over one trillion dollars thus far with no end in sight; and alienated many American allies in the Western world.


Vincent Bugliosi received his law degree in 1964. In his career at the L.A. County District Attorney’s office, he successfully prosecuted 105 out of 106 felony jury trials, including 21 murder convictions without a single loss. His most famous trial, the Charles Manson case, became the basis of his classic, Helter Skelter, the biggest selling truecrime book in publishing history



> Whether it’s a delicate green tea or a bracing Assam black, a cup of tea is a complex brew of art and industry, tradition and revolution, East and West. In this sweeping tour through the world of tea, veteran tea traders Mary Lou Heiss and Robert J.

THE STORY OF TEA begins with a journey along the tea trail, from the lush forests of China, where tea cultivation first flourished, to the Buddhist temples of Japan, to the vast tea gardens of India, and beyond. Offering an insider’s view of all aspects of tea trade, the Heisses examine Camellia sinensis, the tea bush, and show how subtle differences in terroir and production contribute to the diversity of color, flavor, and quality in brewed tea. They profile more than thirty essential tea varietals, provide an indepth guide to tasting and brewing, and survey the customs and crafts associated with tea. Sharing the latest research, they discuss tea’s health benefits and developments in organic production and fair trade practices.

It’s a new charter school, created to provide both academic and vocational education with a strong emphasis on behavior modification.

The goal is to do all that can be done to assure these children complete their education and graduate from high school, said Judge Theresa Dellick of the Mahoning County Juvenile Justice Center. She has been the driving force behind the development of the alternative education school."

also, Atty.Vincent Bugliosi returns to the show to talk about his new book:"The Prosecution of George W. Bush For Murder."

Bugliosi prosecuted 106 felony jury trials, winning 105, including twenty-one murder convictions without a single loss. He is best known for his prosecution of Charles Manson, whose cult-like followers mudered actress Sharon Tate, who was nearly nine months pregnant, and four others in Tate's Los Angeles home in 1969. The notorious case became the basis of Bugliosi's "Helter Skelter," the biggest selling true-crime book in publishing history.

In his latest book, the attorney points to the Bush administration's public statements that prompted the Iraq War and led to the deaths of thousands of American troops and Iraqi civilians as the reasons for his murder allegation against the president.

Why do people dodge responsibility when things fall apart? Why the parade of public figures unable to own up when they screw up? Why the endless marital quarrels over who is right? Why can we see hypocrisy in others but not in ourselves? Are we all liars? Or do we really believe the stories we tell?

Renowned social psychologists Carol Tavris and Elliot Aronson take a compelling look into how the brain is wired for self-justification. When we make mistakes, we must calm the cognitive dissonance that jars our feelings of self-worth. And so we create fictions that absolve us of responsibility, restoring our belief that we are smart, moral, and right—a belief that often keeps us on a course that is dumb, immoral, and wrong.

Backed by years of research and delivered in lively, energetic prose, Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me) offers a fascinating explanation of self-deception—how it works, the harm it can cause, and how we can overcome it.

Wed :

we close the show w/:

A live update w/ The Columbus Dispatch's Alan Johnson re: The Ohio Atty.General's office-

we begin talking Democrats and China policy w/ /the alliance for American Mfg:

Democratic Presidential Candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama vowed to hold China and other offending countries accountable for unfair trade practices that disadvantage U.S. workers and manufacturers at a candidate forum this morning in Pittsburgh. Senator John McCain was invited but unable to attend.


The forum was sponsored by the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM), a non-partisan, non-profit labor-management coalition of the United Steelworkers and the nation’s leading manufacturers forged to strengthen manufacturing in America.

“Today, voters demanded that their presidential candidates get tough on China,” said AAM Executive Director Scott Paul. “And while the candidates at today’s forum made strong commitments on trade, we must ensure that their promises become policies that enforce our laws against unfair trade and defend our workers and domestic industries.”

The candidates appeared separately. Each spoke for 20 minutes on trade and manufacturing issues before fielding several questions from the diverse audience of over 1,600 union workers, manufacturers, and local elected officials. AAM principals and partners also addressed the crowd, including United Steelworkers International President Leo W. Gerard, United States Steel Corporation Senior Vice President Terrence Straub, Allegheny Technologies Chief Executive Patrick Hassey and AK Steel Chief Executive Jim Wainscott.

“China must stop manipulating its currency because it’s not fair to American manufacturers, it’s not fair to you, and we are going to change it when I am President,” said Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) in his remarks to forum attendees, where he also criticized trade agreements like NAFTA. He pledged to “fight for manufacturing, modernize the steel industry, strengthen our manufacturing base, and have a manufacturing policy to open as many markets as we can for American workers.”

“I’m calling for changing our laws to send China a message,” said Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY), who outlined her trade agenda to the audience and highlighted national security concerns related to unfair trade. “If you subsidize your exports and hurt our manufacturers, you’ll pay a price.” She argued that “you cannot be a strong nation without a strong manufacturing sector.”

The candidate forum is part of a larger effort by AAM to highlight the impact that China’s unfair trade practices have had on American workers and manufacturers. AAM has called for stronger enforcement of U.S. trade law and last week launched a statewide advertisement and grassroots campaign entitled, “China Cheats. Pennsylvania Loses.” A PDF of the ad is posted at: http://www.americanmanufacturing.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/aam_pennsylvania_032708a.pdf

Bonk : The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex by Mary Roach

he study of sexual physiology—what happens, and why, and how to make it happen better—has been going on for centuries, behind the closed doors of laboratories, brothels, Alfred Kinsey's attic, and, more recently, MRI centers, pig farms, and sex-toy R&D labs. I spent two years wheedling and conniving my way behind those doors to bring you the answers to the questions Dr. Ruth never asked. Is your penis three inches longer than you think? Is vaginal orgasm a myth? Can a dead man get an erection? Why doesn't Viagra help women—or, for that matter, pandas?

"A Great Day in Youngstown Talk Radio"

We'll open w/ Cleveland Plain Dealer

investigative reporterJOEL RUTCHICK


The Controversy surrounding the Cuyahoga County's Ameritrust construction contracts(hmmm....)



> click for schedule.








Youngstown Prosecutor Jay Macejko returns to the show-FRESH from a training session and ready to implement Operation Ceasefire in the community. First stop — the Louie b. Free Show to share what he learned, his hopes and target dates. Operation Ceasefire is a deterrence police strategy to reduce gang violence, illegal gun possession, and gun violence in communities. The program's creator, Professor David Kennedy, will also join the conversation.

Louie will also talk with Ohio Treasurer Richard Cordray, who is coming to the Valley with information on the Youngstown-area businesses taking part in his GrowNOW interest rate reduction program, how they’re being helped, and the dollars and jobs this means for the area. Cordray pledged last year to help area businesses access the program, which had been underutilized. He'll join the show after visiting Summer Garden Food Manufacturing, which has just become involved in the GrowNOW program.


Also returning will be Benjamin R. Barber, author of "CONSUMED — How Markets Corrupt Children, Infantilize Adults, and Swallow Citizens Whole." Barber focuses on the expanding global culture of market forces he claims will destroy not only democracy but even capitalism, if left unchecked. Those forces, he believes, seek to turn the young into aggressive consumers and arrest the psychological development of adultsleading them to "stupid" brand loyalties. The increasing drive toward privatization compounds the problem, he believes, generating a "civic schizophrenia" where everybody wants service but nobody wants to serve.

>www.44503live.blogspot.com for Phil Kidd's blog-a true example of transparency in government.

Former Ohio State Senator, Harry Meshel returns to rock and roll with me today.

Harry Meshel

Sen. Meshel's unique perspectives on politics — local,state and national — are always interesting and entertaining. Louie says, if we're lucky, he'll get the senator to sing again!

Meshel entered electoral politics in 1970, when he ran for a seat in the Ohio State Senate. In 1971, he was elected to the 33rd District seat, then was re-elected five times. He became the Senate's majority whip and chaired the powerful Senate Finance Committee.

During his five terms, he was credited with helping to secure almost $150 million in capital improvements for Youngstown State University. He also secured more than $160 million in grants and loans from the Ohio Department of Development for local economic development projects and worked to create the Northeastern Universities College of Medicine, the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Ohio University , the Wright State University School of Professional psychology, and other programs.

Louie also will talk whole-grain cooking and eating the Betty Crocker folks. Their new cookbook is Betty Crocker Whole Grains.


And he'll discuss addiction treatment/services with Larry Moliterno, Boardman Township trustee and CEO of Meridian Services, Inc., a behavioral healthcare organization.

Moliterno has been named to the board of directors of the Ohio Council of Behavioral Healthcare Providers.





I've read an advance copy of that little pink book that makes politicians squirm.

> >

The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW) will release the 2008 Congressional Pig Book at a news conference Wednesday. Louie has and has read an advance copy. But Louie's read it and will talk with Thomas A. Schatz, president of the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste, on today's "Brainfood From the Heartland."

The Pig Book is an annual report on pork-barrel spending in the federal budget. This year's version features a complete database of pork projects and profiles of the most egregious examples from the federal Appropriations Acts. In fiscal 2008, pork-barrel spending ballooned to 11,610 projects costing $17.2 billion.

Louie will lead a discussion of the current state of earmark reform and what more needs to be done to stop Congress from returning to its piggish ways.

He'll also welcome Dr.Hyla Cass back to the show. She's one of the country's foremost authors and speakers on the subject of integrative medicine. A former assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at UCLA School of Medicine, she has incorporated nutrition and natural health techniques into her practice for more than 20 years.

The Approach: Urgency, Optimism and Entrepreneurship

Why Republicans Don't Have the Corner on Christ

Jesus Rode a Donkey shines the light of Scripture and theology on policy decisions of both the Republican and Democratic party, and looks at the many ways that, I believe, the Republican party has lost its way -- by giving more tax breaks to the super-rich than the poor, by cutting back on environmental policies that protect the environment, by not caring for the poor, the needy, the have-nots in our society, by fueling the war rather than creating peace, by creating an attitude of fear rather than hope, by not being honest with the American people

David accurately predicted the developing financial recession since 2005. He'll give you an in-depth understanding of what's happening and what's to come in the financial world that is affecting us all.


When the city first announced that Youngstown was going to utilize Operation Cease Fire — a coordinated, citywide strategy aimed at deterring juvenile and gang firearm violence, I contacted local officials to come on the show and explain the program and promote its use in our community. Frustrated with the lack of response from city officials, I then contacted David Kennedy. David joins us today.He directed the Boston Gun Project, a ground-breaking problem-solving policing exercise aimed at serious youth violence. Its chief intervention, Operation Ceasefire, was implemented in mid-1996 and appears to have been principally responsible for a two-thirds reduction in homicide victimization among those 24 and under citywide. Operation Ceasefire won the Ford Foundation Innovations in Government award, the Herman Goldstein International Award for Problem Oriented Policing, and the International Association of Chiefs of Police Webster Seavey Award. He has contributed to similar homicide prevention exercises in San Francisco, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, High Point and Winston-Salem, North Carolina, San Joaquin County, California, and elsewhere. He helped design the Youth Crime Gun Interdiction Initiative, launched by the Clinton Administration in 1996, for which he received a director's commendation from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.

James Ridgeway is Mother Jones' Washington bureau chief. A longtime Washington correspondent for the Village Voice, Ridgeway helped launch the modern muckraking era when he revealed that General Motors had hired private eyes to spy on a then-obscure consumer advocate named Ralph Nader. The expose prompted hearings on Capitol Hill (in which G.M. President James Roche was eventually forced to apologize to Nader) and made Nader's book, "Unsafe at Any Speed," a bestseller.

Ridgeway has written 16 books, including 2005's "The Five Unanswered Questions About 9/11." His broad-based national reporting has appeared in publications ranging from Harper's to The Economist and the New York Times Magazine.

Atty John Shultz announces his run for Mahoning County Treasurer

and, from Frontline:


In recent years, there’s been a dramatic increase in the number of children being diagnosed with serious psychiatric disorders and prescribed medications that are just beginning to be tested in children. The drugs can cause serious side effects, and virtually nothing is known about their long-term impact. “It’s really to some extent an experiment, trying medications in these children of this age,” child psychiatrist Dr. Patrick Bacon tells FRONTLINE. “It’s a gamble. And I tell parents there’s no way to know what’s going to work.”

In The Medicated Child, airing Tuesday, January 8, 2008, at 9 P.M. ET on PBS (check local listings), FRONTLINE producer Marcela Gaviria confronts psychiatrists, researchers and government regulators about the risks and benefits of prescription drugs for troubled children. The biggest current controversy surrounds the diagnosis of bipolar disorder. Formerly called manic depression, bipolar disorder was long believed to exist only in adults, but, in the mid-1990s, bipolar in children began to be diagnosed at much higher rates, sometimes in kids as young as 4 years old. “The rates of bipolar diagnoses in children have increased markedly in many communities over the last five to seven years,” says Dr. Steven Hyman, a former director of the National Institute of Mental Health. “I think the real question is, are those diagnoses right? And in truth, I don’t think we yet know the answer.”

Like many of the 1 million children now diagnosed with bipolar, 5-year-old Jacob Solomon was initially believed to suffer from an attention deficit disorder. His parents reluctantly started him on Ritalin, but over the next five years, Jacob would be put on one drug after another. “It all started to feel out of control,” Jacob’s father, Ron, told FRONTLINE. “Nobody ever said we can work with this through therapy and things like that. Everywhere we looked it was, ‘Take meds, take meds, take meds.’”

Over the years, Jacob’s multiple medications have helped improve his mood, but they’ve also left him with a severe tic in his neck which doctors are having trouble fully explaining. “We’re dealing with developing minds and brains, and medications have a whole different impact in the young developing child than they do in an adult,” says Dr. Marianne Wamboldt, the chief of psychiatry at Denver Children’s Hospital. “We don't understand that impact very well. That’s where we’re still in the Dark Ages.”

DJ Koontz was diagnosed with bipolar at 4 years old, after his temper tantrums became more frequent and explosive. He was recently prescribed powerful antipsychotic drugs. “It is a little worrisome to me because he is so young,” says DJ’s mother, Christine. “If he didn’t take it, though, I don’t know if we could function as a family. It’s almost a do-or-die situation over here.” DJ’s medicines seem to be helping him in the short run, but the longer-term outlook is still uncertain. “What’s not really clear is whether many of the kids who are called bipolar have anything that’s related to this very well-studied disorder in adults,” says Thomas Insel, the director of the National Institute for Mental Health. “It’s not clear that people with that adult illness started with what we’re now calling bipolar in children. Nor is it clear that the kids who have this disorder are going to grow up to have what we used to call manic-depressive illness in adulthood.”

While some urge caution when it comes to bipolar in children, FRONTLINE talks with others who argue that we should intervene with drug treatments at even younger ages for children genetically predisposed to the disorder. “The theory is that if you get in early, before the first full mood episode, then perhaps we can delay the onset to full mania,” says Dr. Kiki Chang of Stanford University. “And if that’s the case, perhaps finding the right medication early on can protect a brain so that these children never do progress to full bipolar disorder.”

He coauthored Green Politics (1984), Belonging to the Universe (1991), and EcoManagement (1993), and coedited Steering Business Toward Sustainability (1995). The Hidden Connections was published in 2002, and his latest book, The Science of Leonardo, will be published in October, 2007.

Capra also cowrote the screenplay for >Mindwalk (1990), a film based on his books that starred Liv Ullmann, Sam Waterston, and John Heard, and was created and directed by his brother, Bernt Capra.

After receiving his Ph.D. in theoretical physics from the University of Vienna in 1966, Capra did research in particle physics at the University of Paris (1966-68), the University of California at Santa Cruz (1968-70), the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (1970), Imperial College, University of London (1971-74), and the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory at the University of California (1975-88). He also taught at U.C. Santa Cruz, U.C. Berkeley, and San Francisco State University.

In addition to his research in physics and systems theory, Capra has been engaged in a systematic examination of the philosophical and social implications of contemporary science for the past 30 years. His books on this subject have been acclaimed internationally, and he has lectured widely to lay and professional audiences in Europe, Asia, and North and South America.

Capra has been the focus of over 50 television interviews, documentaries, and talk shows in Europe, the United States, Brazil, Argentina, and Japan, and has been featured in major newspapers and magazines internationally. He was the first subject of the BBC's new documentary series "Beautiful Minds" (2002).

Q: Are you really saying to never do Cardio again?
Absolutely. If you want to lose weight, get in the best shape of your life and maximize every minute to get their as quickly as possible, never do "cardio" again. The type of "cardio" I'm talking about is the kind that 95% of people who say they do "cardio" are performing. I'm talking about going for a jog, a walk, a bout on the elliptical, a spinning session or a run on the treadmill. These traditional forms of "cardio" are a waste of your time and can, in many cases, be extremely harmful to your body, your motivation and even your heart.

Wendy's attitude toward animal welfare is frosty. After months of discussions with The HSUS, the cold-hearted company is still lagging behind its competitor, Burger King, when it comes to reducing cruelty to egg-laying hens.

In March, Burger King began phasing in the use of cage-free eggs. Yet all of the eggs that Wendy's uses come from birds crammed in cages so tiny they can barely move.

The HSUS has repeatedly urged Wendy's to stop lagging behind Burger King and begin moving away from eggs from caged hens. Yet the company has not taken any concrete steps to reduce the suffering of these birds.


Call Wendy's at 1-800-443-7266, ext. 2032.

Please ask Wendy’s to follow in Burger King’s footsteps and start moving away from eggs from caged hens.

Tuesday.Aug 21.07: Laurie Maxwell from the Humane Society-on dog fighting.

Laurie Maxwell is thrilled to start her career as Deputy Campaign Manager for the Animal Fighting and Cruelty Campaign at The Humane Society of the United States. Her goal is to raise awareness about animal cruelty and how people can stop it through media, community and celebrity outreach.

Her senior thesis at Penn State University examined how media shapes society's views and actions using pit bull hysteria as a case study. She recently made a short documentary about pit bull overpopulation.

Laurie has invested hours getting to know the plight of shelter dogs—particularly pit bulls—and the severity of the dogfighting problem. She helped establish a pit bull advocacy group in Pittsburgh that promotes spay and neuter and finds good homes for pit bulls. Her passion to stopdogfighting led her to the Animal Fighting and Cruelty Campaign.

She now teaches a "Pitbull 101" class that debunks pit bull myths and addresses canine behavior problems using positive-reinforcement training to reduce owner-surrendered pit bulls to shelters. Laurie's favorite friend and education tool is Winston, a three-year-old shelter-rescued pit bull, who is working on his Canine Good Citizen certification.>

Craig Key is the much criticized former Associate District Judge of Lincoln County, Oklahoma, who has been blamed for the death of two-year-old Kelsey Smith-Briggs after his decision in June, 2005 to return Kelsey to her mother’s home. Key has authored the factual account of the true crime against Kelsey that occurred in the small town of Meeker, Oklahoma, from his perspective as the judge in this case.

A Deadly Game of Tug-of-War: The Kelsey Smith-Briggs Story is an account of Key’s decision that met with the loss of a young girl’s life and the end of a judicial career of a well-respected child advocate in Oklahoma. Key has not spoken about his decision regarding the placement of Kelsey, until now. He has authored this book to bring forth the facts in this case and to clear up mischaracterizations of the evidence, the rumors and innuendos, and the one-sided reports by the media.

After all the stories and all the hype, the parts of the story never told that really influenced the judge's decision are now going public.

"No one in Kelsey’s family loved her enough to put aside their mutual hatred, and now the prize they fought tooth and claw for is forever lost; shame on them all." Irven Box, Attorney and Media Legal Analyst

To the Families of Kelsey

The only true victim in all of this is Kelsey. It does not matter what I have suffered personally or professionally in light of the circumstances around this case. I would have given it all up to save Kelsey. A career can be rebuilt. A reputation can be mended when the truth presents itself. But a life can never be relived. I feel deeply sorry for your loss. I continue to pray for each of you every day.

~ Craig Key

Altered Oceans

Kenneth R. Weiss & Usha Lee McFarling

Los Angeles Times

The Los Angeles Times' five-part series, Altered Oceans, examined a profound disturbance in the ecology of the seas. The articles showed how man-made stresses are not merely sullying the Earth's watery skin, but altering its basic composition and chemistry. As a result, fish, corals and marine mammals are in retreat and the oceans' most primitive life forms – algae, bacteria and jellyfish – are on the rise. One scientist described the phenomena in an ominous phrase: "the rise of slime."

In 18 months of research, staff writers Kenneth R. Weiss and Usha Lee McFarling pored over the scientific literature, tapped the best minds of marine science and then ventured onto the water and below it.

Visit the website>Altered Oceans Website

The articles took readers to the mouth of a sewage pipe that spews its content into the Atlantic, to a coral reef off Jamaica being smothered to death by algae, into the homes of Florida residents choking on airborne toxins wafting ashore, and to a MRI laboratory in San Francisco where researchers probed the brain of a sea lion fatally damaged by toxic algae.

The causes of these distress signals from the deep are commonplace: Industrial society is overdosing the oceans with basic nutrients that promote the growth of algae and bacteria while over-fishing and coastal development are removing the species and other buffers that once held them in check. Humanity's plastic waste has deepened the crisis, killing sea birds and marine mammals. Pollutants from smokestacks and tail pipes are turning the seas more acidic, threatening a wide spectrum of marine life.

Reaction to the series was broad and impassioned. The leaders of the bipartisan House Oceans Caucus distributed copies to every member of the House, with a cover letter that said: "We recommend that you take a moment to review this series. The conditions it describes are a threat to our national security, economy and environment, and we need to act ... before the damage is irreparable."


new blog today


Liz Norha,Director fo The Children's Museum of the Valley + Defend Youngstown's Phil Kidd fresh from the meeting re: the proposal to eliminate more green spaces downtown. Also, Brooke Slanina and Paul Hagman . See/sign Petition here.

The 'white paper' on the downtown proposal, here:



03,Friday.Aug.07: Tyler Clark is a software consultant who, with his wife and two young children, bought a house on Youngstown's north side this February.

He met his wife 10 years ago while attending the Dana School of Music as a University Scholar at YSU.

They left after graduating, to live in Washington, DC and most recently Tucson, Arizona.

After realizing the community they had been looking for was here in Youngstown, where his wife, Jacquelyne Evanovitz, was raised,

August First/Wednesday.07: ANDY ARENA RETURNS ! Andy was the agent - in-charge of the Y-town FBI office when the Y-town office had " more agents,per capita than

any other

FBI office in the country " !

July 1995, Mr. Arena was promoted to Supervisory Special Agent and assigned to the Organized Crime Section at FBI Headquarters.

This squad investigated matters such as bank robberies, armored car robberies, and fugitives.

He was then promoted to Supervisory Senior Resident Agent of the Youngstown Resident Agency in the Cleveland Division. Investigations in Youngstown focused on the systemic public corruption and organized crime that had long plagued the area.

Also,David Barrett returns to explain the finacial state of America,China, and the world.David invested CitiBanks MONEY for years....and, Shelly Morrison. After more than forty years in show business, actress Shelley Morrison, who plays the wisecracking Rosario on the hit NBC series "Will and Grace," has more than her share of stories. This veteran of the big and small screen has also augmented her professional life with ties to her family and community that have made her a compelling person as well as a skilled performer.

Born in the South Bronx, Morrison , a Sephardic Jew of Spanish descent “ moved with her family to Los Angeles as a child, and still lives in the apartment building that her father owned and managed six decades ago. The young Morrison worked consistently in film and television in the 1960s, playing the memorable Sister Sixto on the series "The Flying Nun" and appearing alongside the late Gregory Peck in the western "MacKenna’s Gold."

After putting her career on the back burner to marry Walter Dominguez (the two celebrate their 32nd anniversary this year), Morrison made a comeback after the age of 50 highly unlikely for a future grandmother who likes to knit in her spare time. A series of guest-starring roles on a number of series in the 80s and 90s eventually lead to her landing the role of Rosario, which has earned her Emmy and SAG Awards (for Outstanding Ensemble) and numerous other nominations, including three ALMA Nominations for Best Supporting Actress. Morrison's latest roles include the voices of Mrs. Portello on Disney Channel's new animated series "Handy Manny," and Lola Fruitola in Threshold Entertainment’s digitally animated film Food Fight!, which is set for release in November. She is also co-producing, with husband Walter Dominguez, a documentary entitled Weaving the Pastâ about Dominguezâs grandfather's participation in the early Mexican Revolution. “It is about my husband's Mexican heritage and the importance of honoring ones culture and ancestry, says Morrison.

Morrison now practices the spiritual tradition of the Lakota Sioux, is a tireless worker for charity (A.N.G.E.L.S Day, which helps senior citizens and their animal companions), and takes pride in portraying an older, Hispanic woman who is tough, smart and can hold her own. Morrison has received a commendation from the city for her effort to preserve her neighborhood during the 1992 riots that destroyed a shopping mall just behind her home and joined other "celebrity knitters" including Elizabeth Taylor and "Will and Grace" co-star Debra Messing, to knit blankets for a sale benefiting the New York Police and Fire Widows™ and Children's Benefit Fund. Recently, she led the inspirational and uplifting "Sea of Pink" survivors' ceremony to kick off the Susan G. Komen "Race for the Cure" in Los Angeles. She has survived two bouts with cancer, and retains a spirit of peace and optimism that is as infectious as her winning smile.

Thursday12.July.07:I've really been looking forward to doing these guys, ever since the day I cracked their book:>

Drs.Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein join me to help us understand philosophy through jokes. Filmaker,Robert Boris In an era where many Hollywood filmmakers avoid taking risks, writer/director Robert Boris isn’t afraid of mixing political thought with serious drama. The filmmaker is about to shoot the film version of the controversial book >United States V. George W. Bush et al. (U.S. V. Bush), from Seven Stories Press, a provocative bit of “What if†fiction that stages a grand jury hearing that accuses the president and his advisors of defrauding the American public to go to war with Iraq.

Boris is no stranger to using the medium of film to ask provocative questions of historical figures – he wrote the acclaimed 1983 TV movie “Blood Feud†about the connections between Jimmy Hoffa and the Kennedy White House, and has also written projects about Frank and Jesse James, Marilyn Monroe and Adam Clayton Powell. With U.S. V. Bush, Boris has adapted the work of former federal prosecutor Elizabeth de la Vega for the big screen, culling together public records and statements that ask provocative questions about this nation’s involvement in world politics in a charged courtroom atmosphere. “It’s in the tradition of great American political theatre,†Boris says, hoping that the film will give voice to all sides of the argument and allow the American people to reckon with the events of the past few years.

A troubled teenager who turned to creative writing while living in a halfway home in New York City in the 1960's, Boris attended Carnegie Tech where he learned the craft of playwriting, and made an auspicious debut by writing the screenplay for the classic police drama “Electra Glide in Blue,†which was the official United States selection for the Cannes Film Festival in 1973. Now, in addition to taking on U.S. V. Bush, Boris is also in preproduction for “Hot Men,†which will recreate the rise of swing music in the Depression Era through the figures of Benny Goodman, Lionel Hampton, Gene Krupa and Teddy Wilson. The film is currently being cast with some of Hollywood's hottest young actors and will begin shooting in the fall of 2007.

DEREK RYDALL !!! I love Derek, and you will too!

The nephew of legendary film director, Don Siegel (Dirty Harry, Escape From Alcatraz, Invasion Of The Body Snatchers), Derek Rydall has been in show business most of his life. His diverse experience as an actor, screenwriter, playwright, screenplay consultant, and screenplay doctor give him the unique ability to understand film (and stories in general) on many levels, and allow him to give his clients that extra edge that takes their screenplay to the next level -- the one that sells!

As an actor, he starred in several films & television shows with Tom Skerritt, Charles Bronson, Elliot Gould, Tony Roberts (of Woody Allen films), Paulie Shore, director John Turtletaub (Phenomenon, National Treasure), and many others.

As a writer, screenplay consultant, and screenplay doctor, he has been on staff for Fox and Disney, developed projects for Saturn (Nicolas Cage’s company), RKO, United Artists, Miramax, Fine Line, Deepak Chopra, the creators of “Air Force One,” “Ghost,” and worked one-on-one with many writers, independent producers, and executives from around the world. All together, he has sold, had optioned, or been hired to write over 20 Film & TV projects. As a Playwright, he co-created and starred in “Welcome Home Soldier,” which has run for over 10 years (the longest running drama in LA history), toured several cities, and sponsored many vets to go to the wall.

As a direct result of Derek’s consulting, clients have turned their books into screenplays, secured millions in financing, made 6-figure screenwriting deals, book deals, been hired to executive produce, direct, and star in their own movies, obtained major distribution, and won multiple film awards.

And as an Author, Derek has two books, "I Could’ve Written a Better Movie than That!: How to Make Six Figures as a screenplay Consultant – Even if You’re Not a Screenwriter," and "There’s No Business Like Soul Business: a Spiritual Path to Higher Entertainment"

Don't miss Derek today.This is a rare opportunity that just may give

you a rare opportunity !

SPEAKING FREELY w/ Atty.Floyd Abrams

Floyd Abrams (b. July 9, 1936) is a prominent American attorney and advocate. He is an expert on Constitutional Law, and many arguments in the briefs he has written before the United States Supreme Court have been adopted as United States Constitutional interpretative law. He is the William J. Brennan Jr. Visiting Professor at the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University. Abrams argued for The New York Times and Judith Miller in the CIA leak grand jury investigation. Abrams appearance before the Supreme Court as an advocate of the First Amendment has put him in a class of prominent and still-working legal scholars who have shaped American understanding of their fundamental rights under the United States Constitution.

+ a RARE interview w/ Fred Katz:

Fred Katz

  • Born 25 February 1919, Brooklyn, New York

Before he became Dr. Katz, musicologist and academician, Fred Katz contributed some priceless items to the space age pop archives. Let us review his c.v.:

  • Arrangements for Harpo Marx's "Harpo in Hi-Fi" album

  • Jazz cellist in Chico Hamilton's innovative combo with the young Eric Dolphy

  • The score for the Roger Corman cult black comedy, "The Little Shop of Horrors"

  • Backing soundtrack for Ken Nordine's "Word Jazz" albums

  • Original compositions for the early Tzadik/rad Jewish music album, Folk Songs for Far Out Folks

  • Original compositions to back Sidney Poitier's reading of excerpts from Plato

Obviously, his tenure in the pantheon of this site is assured.

Katz spent World War Two leading the 6th Army Band based at the Presidio, then joined the studio system in Hollywood, where he worked with vocalists such as Lena Horne and Vic Damone. He also performed on the side as a jazz pianist in local clubs, and through those gigs came in contact with many of the leading figures in the West Coast jazz scene.

Folk Songs for Far-Out People>Having studied the cello in school, Katz was encouraged to explore its possibilities as a jazz instrument through his work with Chico Hamilton. Hamilton was attempting to expand his repertoire beyond cool jazz and bebop, and Katz' classical training and interest in ethnic music provided the means to explore new areas. Together, they wove classical, Middle Eastern, and Asian themes into their performances, helping to pioneer "exotic jazz," a small but fun subgenre shared by Duke Ellington's "Far East Suite" and Cal Tjader's "Shades of Jade" album.

Katz can also be seen and heard in the great Tony Curtis/Burt Lancaster film, "The Sweet Smell of Success," again as part of a Chico Hamilton combo. Katz and Hamilton wrote and perform the four numbers the group performs in the film along with Martin Milner (dubbed by Jim Hall) as the "disreputable" jazz musician Lancaster (as Walter Winchell-like gossip columnist and holy moral force J. J. Hunsecker). As befits lazy good-for-nothing hop-head jazz musicians, Katz and Hamilton can also be spotted hanging around backstage.

While playing with Hamilton, Katz continued to work in the studio system. He worked briefly for Roger Corman, cranking out three scores--"The Little Shop of Horrors," "Bucket of Blood," and "The Wasp Woman"--in under 18 months. Given the similarity of musical cues among the films, however, it may be more accurate to say that Corman used Katz's one score three times. He served a number of years as an A&R director for Decca Records and recorded occasionally under his own name--a diverse array of projects in their own right as you can see from the list of titles below. Sometime in the mid-to-late 1960s, Katz moved up the road from Hollywood and settled in as a member of the music faculty at the California State University at Northridge.

Tuesday.26June.07: Gov.Mario Cuomo:

Governor Mario Cuomo

  • 52nd Governor of New York State

Known as an intellectual, passionate and challenging force for social responsibility and diversity, Governor Mario Cuomo reminds us of our collective American legacy. The Boston Globe deemed Governor Cuomo's recent speech at Harvard's Kennedy School a "masterpiece" and named him "the nation's most gifted philosopher-politician."

Mario M. Cuomo is the longest serving Democratic Governor of New York in modern history.

He twice set New York records for highest popular vote ever achieved in a state-wide election.

The New York Times called his tenure one of the most celebrated governorships in history.

The conservative National Review spoke of him as follows:

“Mario Cuomo has for years been hailed as both the philosopher-king and the humble ‘conscience’ of the Democratic Party, a formidable, saintly genius of liberalism. Since his efflorescence at the 1984 Democratic convention, even many conservatives have accorded this, their archenemy, a certain respect.”

He served the State through two national recessions and twelve years of federal policies that cut back on federal aid to New York and other states.

Nevertheless, Governor Cuomo balanced twelve budgets;

reduced New York’s largest tax, the income tax, by more than twenty percent; rebuilt much of the State’s infrastructure; reduced the mortality rate on highways every year for seven years with the nation’s first seat belt law and an aggressive anti-drunk driving program; created the State’s first "Centers of Advanced Technology," and introduced programs like “Child Health Plus” and the “Children’s Assistance Program,” a reform of the New York welfare system that served as models for later federal programs now in place.

A lawyer since 1956, Governor Cuomo appointed 112 judges, including all the judges of the Court of Appeals, as well as the first and second women judges, the first black, the first Hispanic and the first woman to serve as Chief Judge.

He declined invitations to run for President of the United States and to serve on the United States’ Supreme Court. In 1995 he returned to his first love, the practice of law.

Thomas A. Schatz is President of Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) and its lobbying affiliate, the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW).

CAGW was founded by the late industrialist J. Peter Grace and late Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Jack Anderson in 1984 following the completion of President Ronald Reagan’s Private Sector Survey on Cost Control (the Grace Commission). A 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nonpartisan educational organization, CAGW works to eliminate waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in government and has attracted more than one million members and supporters nationwide. According to official Office of Management and Budget and CAGW estimates, implementation of Grace Commission and other CAGW waste-cutting recommendations has helped save taxpayers $898 billion.

Mr. Schatz is a nationally recognized spokesperson on government waste and has been interviewed on hundreds of radio talk shows from coast to coast. He appears regularly on national television news programs and local news broadcasts. His appearances include ABC’s “Good Morning America,” CBS’s “60 Minutes,” FOX News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” NBC’s “Nightly News,” and PBS’s “The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer.” His editorials on fiscal policy have appeared in publications nationwide, including The Wall Street Journal and The Chicago Sun-Times.

Mr Schatz is a frequent visitor to the Louie b.Free Show in addition to his annual visit on the release date of the Pig Book.

Mr. Schatz has testified numerous times on government waste issues before committees of the United States Senate and House of Representatives, as well as before state and local legislative and regulatory bodies.

During his 20 years with CAGW, Mr. Schatz has spearheaded a development program that has increased the organization’s members and supporters from 5,000 to more than 1,000,000.

Prior to joining CAGW in 1986, Mr. Schatz spent six years as legislative director for Congressman Hamilton Fish and two years practicing law and lobbying.

Mr. Schatz holds a law degree from George Washington University and graduated from the State University of New York at Binghamton with a BA degree, With Honors, in Political Science. He is married to Leslee Behar and has two daughters, Samantha and Alexandra.

Dr.Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., received his B.A. from Yale University and his M.D. from Western Reserve University. In 1956, pulling the No. 6 oar as a member of the victorious United States rowing team, he was awarded a gold medal at the Olympic Games. He was trained as a surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic and at St. George’s Hospital in London. In 1968, as an Army surgeon in Vietnam, he was awarded the Bronze Star.

Dr. Esselstyn has been associated with the Cleveland Clinic since 1968. During that time, he has served as President of the Staff and as a member of the Board of Governors. He chaired the Clinic’s Breast Cancer Task Force and headed its Section of Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery.

In 1991, Dr. Esselstyn served as President of the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons, That same year he organized the first National Conference on the Elimination of Coronary Artery Disease, which was held in Tucson, Arizona. In 1997, he chaired a follow-up conference, the Summit on Cholesterol and Coronary Disease, which brought together more than 500 physicians and health-care workers in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. In April, 2005, Dr. Esselstyn became the first recipient of the Benjamin Spock Award for Compassion in Medicine.

His scientific publications number over 150, “The Best Doctors in America” 1994-1995 published by Woodward and White cites Dr. Esselstyn’s surgical expertise in the categories of endocrine and breast disease. In 1995 he published his bench mark long-term nutritional research arresting and reversing coronary artery disease in severely ill patients. That same study was updated at 12 years making it one of the longest longitudinal studies of its type. It is most compelling, as no compliant patients have sustained disease progression. Today, 20 years later compliant patients continue to thrive.

Dr. Esselstyn and his wife, Ann Crile Esselstyn, have followed a plant-based diet for more than 20 years.

01 February,07-Thursday:









“In this book I make a claim that will seem startling at the outset. The cultural left in this country is responsible for causing 9/11. … In faulting the cultural left, I am not making the absurd accusation that this group blew up the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. I am saying that the cultural left and its allies in Congress, the media, Hollywood, the nonprofit sector, and the universities are the primary cause of the volcano of anger toward America that is erupting from the Islamic world. The Muslims who carried out the 9/11 attacks were the product of this visceral rage—some of it based on legitimate concerns, some of it based on wrongful prejudice, but all of it fueled and encouraged by the cultural left. Thus without the cultural left, 9/11 would not have happened."

Does your child refuse to cooperate in the morning? Do you dread the constant bickering and fights between siblings, especially late in the afternoon? Does your child get into trouble for not listening or lacking focus? Is it a battle every time your child has to complete a task — any task? Is your child “losing it” over seemingly insignificant issues, like a bad hair day? Does your child seem to “resist” sleep? Are you tired? Really tired?


It is estimated that 60 percent of American children, from infants to teens, are wired and tired, too exhausted to behave well and unable to sleep. Could your child be one of them?

Stereotypes are culturally conditioned reflexes that we carry around in our heads. To a large extent they shape how we will define other people even before we see them. In the media, and in the theatre of politics and power, stereotypes are routinely employed to stir up public emotions while systematically sidestepping thought.

Within each of us the history of dominant ideas has left indelible marks. Nowhere is this truer than in the stereotypes that form and interfere with our capacity to comprehend the world we live in.

"The dramatic, lightning-fast changes now occurring within communications are one reason why we can't afford to be silent. If we act now to express our collective vision of the kind of communications system that the United States requires in the 21st century, we might have a media environment that nurtures free expression, education, social justice, and economic well-being. Missing from what should be intense and well-publicized debates about where our digital society is headed are discussions of how our media can foster civic participation, make government more accountable to the public, address the needs of low-income people, and help ensure that our programming reflects the nation's diversity."

For anyone who’s ever walked out of a movie and said, “That guy was all wrong for that part,” comes this first-of-its-kind look at how actors are chosen and careers are born. Two of the top casting directors in the business, who most recently cast the new James Bond, The Da Vinci Code, and the summer blockbuster Poseidon, offer an insider’s tour of their crucial craft—spotting stars in the making—in this lively memoir, full of the kind of backroom detail loved by movie fans and aspiring actors alike. Janet and Jane share the fascinating, funny stories of discovering and casting then-unknown stars like Julia Roberts, Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, John Cusack, Matt Damon, Winona Ryder, Jennifer Connelly, Brendan Fraser, Virginia Madsen, Joaquin Phoenix, Meg Ryan, Benicio Del Toro, and the Harry Potter kids. Taking us from the first casting call through head shots, auditions, meetings, and desperate searches to fill a part, they give us behind-the-scenes access to the machinery of star-making.Films Include:

Jack Anderson, the Pulitzer Prize-winning muckraking columnist who struck fear into the hearts of corrupt or secretive politicians, inspiring Nixon operatives to plot his murder, died Saturday. He was 83.

Anderson died at his home in Bethesda, Md., of complications from Parkinson's disease, said one of his daughters, Laurie Anderson-Bruch.

Anderson gave up his syndicated Washington Merry-Go-Round column at age 81 in July 2004, after Parkinson's disease left him too ill to continue. He had been hired by the column's founder, Drew Pearson, in 1947.

The column broke a string of big scandals, from Eisenhower assistant Sherman Adams taking a vicuna coat and other gifts from a wealthy industrialist in 1958 to the Reagan administration's secret arms-for-hostages deal with Iran in 1986.

It appeared in some 1,000 newspapers in its heyday. Anderson took over the column after Pearson's death in 1969, working with a changing cast of co-authors and staff over the years.

A devout Mormon, Anderson looked upon journalism as a calling. Considered one of the fathers of investigative reporting, Anderson was renowned for his tenacity, aggressive techniques and influence in the nation's capital.

"He was a bridge for the muckrakers of a century ago and the crop that came out of Watergate," said Mark Feldstein, Anderson's biographer and a journalism professor at George Washington University. "He held politicians to a level of accountability in an era where journalists were very deferential to those in power."

Anderson won a 1972 Pulitzer Prize for reporting that the Nixon administration secretly tilted toward Pakistan in its war with India. He also published the secret transcripts of the Watergate grand jury.

Such scoops earned him a spot on President Nixon's "enemies list." Watergate conspirator G. Gordon Liddy has described how he and other Nixon political operatives planned ways to silence Anderson permanently — such as slipping him LSD or staging a fatal car crash — but the White House nixed the idea.

Anderson's biggest misstep also took place in 1972, when he reported that Sen. Thomas Eagleton of Missouri — at the time the Democratic nominee for vice president — had a history of arrests for drunken and reckless driving. Anderson later acknowledged that his sourcing was faulty and apologized to Eagleton, who eventually dropped out of the race after revelations of treatment for mental illness.

Over the years, Anderson was threatened by the Mafia and investigated by numerous government agencies trying to trace the sources of his leaks. In 1989, police investigated him for smuggling a gun into the U.S. Capitol to demonstrate security lapses.

Known for his toughness on the trail of a story, Anderson was also praised for personal kindness. His son Kevin said that when his father's reporting led to the arrest of some involved in the Watergate scandal, he aided their families financially.

"I don't like to hurt people, I really don't like it at all," Anderson said in 1972. "But in order to get a red light at the intersection, you sometimes have to have an accident."

Anderson began his newspaper career as a 12-year-old writing about scouting activity and community fairs in the outskirts of Salt Lake City, Utah. His first investigative story exposed unlawful polygamy in his church. He was as a civilian war correspondent during World War II and later, while in the Army, wrote for the military paper Stars and Stripes.

After he went to work with Pearson, the team took on communist-hunting Sen. Joseph McCarthy, exposed Connecticut Sen. Thomas Dodd's misuse of campaign money, and revealed the CIA's attempt to use the Mafia to kill Cuban leader Fidel Castro.

Anderson also wrote more than a dozen books.

He was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 1986. In a speech a decade later, he made light of the occasional, uncontrollable shaking the disease caused.

"The doctors tell me it's Parkinson's," he said. "I suspect that 52 years in Washington caused it."

He is survived by his wife, Olivia, and nine children.

    Mission Accomplished Anniversary Day-

    (see, and YOU thought that there's a war still going on w/soldiers dying,getting injured,losing limbs,losing their minds,etc...)

    David Sirota joins us: HOSTILE TAKEOVER: How Big Money & Corruption Conquered Our Government-and How We Can Take It Back

    Do you ever wonder if there’s a connection between the corruption scandals in the news and the steady decline in the quality of life for millions of Americans?

    Do you ever wonder what corporations get for the millions of dollars they pour into the American political system?

    Do you ever think the government has been hijacked by forces hostile to average Americans?

    Do you ever want to fight back?

    Millions of Americans lack health care and millions more struggle to afford it. Politicians claim they care, then pass legislation that just sends more cash to the HMOs. Wages have been stagnant for thirty years, even as corporate profits skyrocket. Politicians say they want to fix the problem and then pass bills written by lobbyists that drive wages even lower and punish those crushed by debt. Jobs are being shipped overseas, pensions are being cut, and energy is becoming unaffordable. And our government, more concerned about maintaining its corporate sponsorship than protecting its citizens, does nothing about it.

    In Hostile Takeover, David Sirota, a major new voice in American politics, seeks to open the eyes of ordinary Americans to the fact that corporate interests have undermined democracy, aided and abetted by their lackeys in our allegedly representative government. At a time when more and more of America’s major political leaders are being indicted or investigated for corruption, Sirota takes readers on a journey that shows how all of this nefarious behavior happened right under our noses—and how the high-profile scandals are merely one product of a political system and debate wholly owned by Big Money interests. Sirota considers major public issues that feel intractable—like spiraling health care costs, the outsourcing of jobs, the inequities of the tax code, and out-of-control energy prices—and shows how in each case workable solutions are buried under the lies of lobbyists, the influence of campaign cash, and the ubiquitous spin machine financed by Big Business.

    With fiery passion, pinpoint wit, and lucid analysis, Hostile Takeover reveals the true enemies of reform and their increasingly sophisticated—and hostile—tactics. It’s an essential guidebook for those of us tired of the government selling us out—and determined to take our country back.

    Rothenberg's first album, "nobody could explain it", was released in 1992 to praise from all musical directions. WVKR in Poughkeepsie decided it's "like ECM on mushrooms." His second record, On the Cliffs of the Heart, with percussionist Glen Velez and banjo player Graeme Boone, was released by New Tone Records in the autumn of 1995. John Cage praised their "sense of virtuosity traveling all over the world." Jazziz named it one of the top ten releases of 1995. His 1997 record, Unamuno, blending improvised music with natural soundscapes, has been featured on National Public Radio in the U.S., WDR German Radio Cologne, and Radio Mafia in Finland. In 1999 he released Bangalore Wild, a collaboration with the Karnataka College of Percussion in Bangalore, India, in collaboration with the WILD Foundation. In 2000 Before the War was released, a collaboration with natural sound artist Douglas Quin, from EarthEar Records in Santa Fe. It was cited as "a notable release" in Billboard, and The Guardian in Britain praised it as "genuine 21st century music."

    Rothenberg is also a philosopher and writer, author of Sudden Music: Improvisation, Art, Nature (Georgia, 2002) Blue Cliff Record: Zen Echoes (Codhill Press, 2001), Hand's End: Technology and the Limits of Nature (California, 1993), Is It Painful to Think?

He is the editor of the Terra Nova book series, published by MIT Press, presenting environmental issues as culture, not just policy. His own writing has been anthologized in The Best Spiritual Writing 1999 (HarperSanFrancisco) and The Soul of Nature (Penguin), and his articles have appeared in Parabola, Orion, The Nation, Wired, Dwell, Kyoto Journal, and Sierra. Rothenberg is associate professor of philosophy at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, and he lives in Cold Spring, NY .

    We'll talk w/David about his new book WHY BIRDS SING-the 1st introduction to the world of bird song that combines the insights of science,poetry and music.

    National Geographic Channel's Explorer Examines High-Tech Surveillance

    In the 21st Century - It's not Science Fiction. It's Reality.

    Are you being watched?

    (Washington, D.C. - April 10, 2006) Invisible eyes are searching for criminals and terrorists. But at what price? Is eavesdropping on private calls without a warrant a brazen violation of civil liberties? Or is it a vital and justifiable protection of the American public's safety? Today, political controversy rages over the recently revealed wiretapping of U.S. citizens without warrants. But for the average citizen, the underlying question remains: Are we quickly entering a world of total surveillance? Will surveillance technology eventually invade our bodies and our homes and pervade our daily lives?

    National Geographic Channel's Explorer takes us behind security doors and deep inside the intricate surveillance networks, exposing the invisible eyes and electronic trails that can spy on what we do and where we've been. Premiering Wednesday, April 19, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, Explorer: Science of Surveillance shows viewers the secret, often disturbing world of surveillance, and newly developed technology . My guest will be:HANSPETER PFISTER
