    PAWsitive Thoughts - Thursday - March 15th - 2-3 PM - Host: Jean Proulx - Topic: Amazing and Misunderstood Wildlife
    March 14th, 2012



    Did you know that bats play a large role in supporting human health, forestry, and agriculture?  Or that snakes maintain small mammal populations which in turn helps to grow the crops we rely on for food?  These amazing and often misunderstood animals will be celebrated as we discuss their natural histories and dispel common myths with inspiring host Jean Proulx on her PAWSitive Thoughts radio show.

    Listeners are encouraged to come down and visit, and may be able to meet “Brownie” the big brown bat, and “ZIpper” the corn snake!  We’ll also discuss turtles and how to help them this spring, and upcoming events like our 4th annual Make Way for Ducklings program!  FMI visit: www.wscafm.org.

    PAWsitive Thoughts - March 8th - Thursday - 2-3 pm - Host: Jean Proulx - Guest: Author Layne Case from Barrington, NH - Author of “Charlie” Books
    March 6th, 2012

    Jean’s special guest will be Author Layne Case from Barrington, NH.

    In Layne’s words..

    “Yes, my main character is “Charlie”, a dog who is different from other dogs.  He has a three foot tail.  In the first book, his tail gets him in trouble so he decides to run away from home because he’s feeling unloved and unwanted.  My message…how our feelings and emotions affect our decisions and that being different is okay.

    In the sequels (“Charlie and His New Friend” and “Charlie and His Neighbor”), Charlie’s tail (his difference) will always do something positive.  My message…our differences are to be celebrated and can influence our lives in a positive way.  The next two books that are in draft form are “Charlie and the School Bully”, (this is from the perspective of the bystander), and “Charlie and His Lost Friend” (addresses abandonment issues). ”

    “Author Layne Case is from Barrington, NH. Her first children’s book “Charlie” was written during the early 1970’s while working towards her Bachelors Degree in Behavioral Science. She has also been writing poetry since 1983 and always planned to publish them one day.

    Layne started AMITY Publications in 2007 when she decided to publish her poetry and children’s book. That was the beginning of her career as a published author. And, that is what started her on her journey as a child advocate.

    Layne’s first edition of “Inspirations from My Family & Friends” and “Charlie” were released in June 2007. She designed a literacy program that would hold the attention of the children with whom she would be sharing her story. So, she created large poster board size illustrations to help tell them about “Charlie”.

    In 2009, “Charlie and His New Friend” was released when Layne and Pat Sciacca, the original illustrator of “Charlie” and Layne’s sister, collaborated once again after 35 years.

     

     

    In 2011, “Charlie and His Neighbor“    was released.  In this third book, Charlie befriends little Meezer, a Siamese kitten, who is “different” from his siblings.  And, he can’t seem to stay focused.

    Each book was written to help children understand that our differences is what makes us who we are and should be celebrated.  Charlie will always use his “tail” which is what makes him different, to do something positive.

     

    Layne designed her literacy program “Read Up! Write On! Literacy Rules!” for schools and child care centers as a way of keeping literacy at the top of the list of what is most important in our educational system. Her theme “Celebrating Our Differences” was developed as she became more and more immersed in the world of Autism, becoming a representative for Future Horizons, the world leading publishers of resources for autism and Asperger’s Syndrome. And, with bullying. reaching epidemic proportions because of people being “different”, this confirmed that her program was of the utmost importance now more than ever.

     

    Layne has years of teaching experience in many different environments. She has taught children in the traditional school setting classroom as well as in her health care facility, offering skill building “Gymboree” exercise programs. She also taught adult health & fitness programs, marketing and motivational workshops. One of her most rewarding experiences was teaching computer courses which she designed for inmates at the Strafford Country Jail in Dover, NH. It was here that she knew she could make a difference.

    Be sure to tune in and listen to this most interesting guest on PAWsitive Thoughts… 2 to 3 pm - on March 8th.

     

     

    The Free Speech Zone - Sunday - February 26th - 7-8pm - Host: DJ Big Brother / Then Stay Tuned for “Lives in the Balance” - 8-9pm
    February 23rd, 2012

    Tune in to The Free Speech Zone on Sunday night February 26th at 7 pm to hear an Agony Column Podcast interview with Matt Taibbi, author of the bestseller Griftopia: A Story of Bankers, Politicians, and the Most Audacious Power Grab in American History. The financial crisis that exploded in 2008 isn’t past but prologue. The grifter class, made up of the largest players in the financial industry and the politicians who do their bidding, has been growing in power, and the crisis was only one terrifying manifestation of how they’ve hijacked America’s political and economic life.  Matt Taibbi has combined deep sources, trailblazing reportage, and provocative analysis to create the most lucid, emotionally galvanizing  account yet written of this ongoing American crisis. He offers fresh reporting on the backroom deals of the bailout; tells the story of Goldman Sachs, the “vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity”; and uncovers the hidden commodities bubble that transferred billions of dollars to Wall Street while creating food shortages around the world. Griftopia is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the labyrinthine inner workings of this country, and the profound consequences for us all. A brilliantly illuminating and darkly comic tale of the ongoing financial and political crisis in America.

    Tune in to The Free Speech Zone on Sunday night February 5th at 7 pm to hear a Media Matters - Bob McChesney interview with Mickey Huff & Peter Phillips of Project Censored.  Every year since 1976, Project Censored has produced a Top-25 list of underreported news stories and a book, Censored, dedicated to the stories that ought to be top features on the nightly news, but that are missing because of media bias and self-censorship. This yearbook features the top stories listed democratically in order of importance according to students, faculty, and a national panel of judges. Each of the top stories is presented at length, alongside updates from the investigative reporters who broke the stories.  Censored is one of the strongest life signs of our current collective desire to get the news we citizens need—despite what Big Media tells us.

    The Burt Cohen Show - Tuesday - January 31st - Noon - 1 PM - One Nation, Indivisible? No. Try Eleven Rival Nations! - Guest: Colin Woodard
    January 29th, 2012

     

    One Nation, Indivisible? No. Try Eleven Rival Nations.

    The Burt Cohen Show interviews Colin Woodard, author of the highly acclaimed new book “American Nations” Tuesday January 31 from noon to one.

    Gingrich kicked butt throughout South Carolina. Do you feel a part of that nation?

    It’s not just blue vs red, North vs South. There’s us here in Yankeedom, New Netherlands, The Midlands, Tidewater, Greater Appalachia, The Deep South (of course), New France, The Far West, El Norte, The Left Coast, and First Nation. You know this is accurate. Colin Woodard reveals a history of these rival regional nations and feels confident today’s boundaries will not look the same in a hundred years. One Nation? Never was. Tune in to this fascinating discussion. If you miss it, podcast will be at www.theburtcohenshow.com.  The guy has done his homework and knows his stuff.

    Check it out on Tuesday’s show from Noon to 1 pm at 106.1 FM locally or online at www.wscafm.org and click on “Listen Now”

    Tune in to The Free Speech Zone on Sunday night January 15th at 7 pm to hear a Media Matters/Bob McChesney interview with Thomas Frank, author of the new book: Pity the Billionaire. Frank examines the peculiar mechanism by which dire economic circumstances have delivered wildly unexpected political results. Using firsthand reporting, a deep knowledge of the American Right, and a wicked sense of humor, he gives the first full diagnosis of the cultural malady that has transformed collapse into profit, reconceived the Founding Fathers as heroes from an Ayn Rand novel, and enlisted the powerless in a fan club for the prosperous. The understanding Frank reaches is at once startling, original, and profound.  Thomas Frank is an American journalist, a former columnist for the Wall Street Journal, and current columnist for Harper’s Magazine and previously the author of What’s The Matter With Kansas?.

    Tune in to The Free Speech Zone on Sunday night January 8th 2012 at 7 pm to hear a Boiling Frogs interview with Andrew Gavin Marshall titled The American Empire and The New World Order. Marshall discusses the role of Foundations and the strategic effort by these institutions in seeking to engineer and manage the social sciences to fit within the framework of an emerging American Empire. He shares his proposal for the Occupy Movement and provides us with his view and definition of the New World Order. Marshall recently co-edited a book with Professor Michel Chossudovsky entitled, “The Global Economic Crisis: The Great Depression of the XXI Century,” a collection of essays by a number of authors and researchers presenting a more critical and nuanced examination of the economic crisis that began in 2008.
