The Dr. Peter Breggin Hour – 02.15.17

I love this hour with my friend Jeanne Stolzer and hope you will, too. We unexpectedly spent the show talking about what psychiatric drugs, alcohol, and marijuana (and all potent psychoactive drugs) are doing to the personal lives of individual children and adults and to society, and what life would be like without these toxic chemicals. The conversation inspired me to take notes as I was listening and talking. Jeanne is a professor of child and adolescent development, and brings an enormous heart and equally enormous intelligence to questions surrounding human life.

INSIGHT – CHANGE AT ANY AGE AND REQUIRED LISTENING FOR ENTREPRENEURS – 12.22.16

Michael Dermer, entrepreneur, speaker, lawyer and author of “The Lonely Entrepreneur” joined me to discuss why he left a coveted job as a corporate lawyer to pursue the dream of being his own boss. His concept — reward Americans for healthy behavior and in the process, saving the healthcare system a bundle. Hear how he created IncentOne – an empire he tirelessly devoted over a decade too that crumbled in mere days during the 2008 financial debacle and how his varied entrepreneur skills, business acumen and much more got him back in the game. My mother continues to inspire and teach me through her uncanny ability to adapt to life circumstances within and beyond her control. Recently, she had to utilize her strength and courage once again, this time in the form of relocating to a new home late in life. Change in life happens in many forms and my mothers ability to not only survive but flourish, made me take pause of the significance of this vital characteristic that makes many wildly uncomfortable.

Transport employees in America were secretly paid by the government to search travellers’ bags

THERE are many reasons why you might have been stopped at an American transport hub and your bag searched by officials. You might have be chosen at random. Perhaps you matched a profile.

Julianne Geiger – What Will You Do When The Lights Go Out? The Inevitable Failure Of The US Grid

Lambert here: We had a weird power failure up here a few weeks ago, that lasted a few hours; weird because there were no storms. I started to check the news online to see the extent of the outage but, oh wait… Now, if I had a cellphone, I would have been OK. As long as I had a charge, …
