Hurricanes, Elections & Nor’easters, Oh My

0

Having overcome powerlessness, exercised my right to vote (and my gluts on the all-up-hill walk home from my polling place!) and let out a hefty sigh of relief that there wasn’t any serious electile dysfunction, we thought we’d be on the air last night for our postponed first show from last week, but . . . Athena had other plans. So, when did we start naming winter storms anyway? Does the naming make it more significant?

It was a pretty winter wonderland for those of us fortunate enough to have power, thus heat. I felt REALLY bad for my friends who are still struggling in cold dark houses. I invited them all over, but everyone just hunkered down in their own digs for the duration. Fortunately, Athena was more hype than heavy snow, but the roads were terrible last night and our fearless HomeGrownRadioNJ leader, who needed to come by and finish the rest of the wiring couldn’t get here. So, in favor of safety and not stressing anyone out (remember Green Divas are low-stress), we will postpone for yet another fun-filled week.

Meanwhile we have been in the new GD studio getting ready. Green Diva Mizar and I are trying not to have too much fun, but when she unearthed a purple tiara from the GD costume closet, it was kind of hard to keep a straight face.

There will be no shortage of fun content from this studio!

We are soooooo grateful for those that are helping us navigate the minefield of odd impediments to get us on the air! Our intern Green Diva Jamie is amazing and has stepped up way beyond the call of duty and has done the job of a professional associate producer! Our new audio engineer, Green Dude Rigel is busy recording and mixing us some new pre-recorded fun.

Overall, we are sidestepping the madness as best we can and are going to hit the airwaves – hard – next week, November 15 with one of our favorite guests, Jessica Arinella from What You Can Do TV series.

Then of course, it is time for turkey and gratitude and we’ll be back on November 29, with the patient and flexible Mariel Hemingway to talk about what the heck happened to Prop 37, why GMOs suck and what we can do moving forward.

Cafeteria Man

“All across America, school food is undergoing a major transformation to help reverse the childhood obesity epidemic — but not without opposition and challenges. CAFETERIA MAN provides an inspiring, behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to bring fresher, healthier food to the millions of kids in our nation’s schools. The film follows nationally-recognized chef Tony Geraci as he works to revamp school food programs that feed thousands of students in two big city districts — Baltimore and Memphis. Responding to the pleas of Baltimore students who were fed-up with terrible school lunches, Geraci was hired to replace pre-plated foods with tastier, more nutritious meals. But he didn’t stop there. To help students develop a better appreciation for healthier foods, he also established a model 33 acre teaching farm, brought in more locally sourced produce, and initiated student-designed meals. CAFETERIA MAN shows that it is possible to feed our nation’s students healthier, more nutritious meals, and provides inspiration and ideas to win the fight for better school food.

With appearances by First Lady Michelle Obama, noted food author Michael Pollan, White House Chef Sam Kass. "

Overfed and Undernourished

“We live in a world with increasing levels of Cancer, Heart Disease, Diabetes and Obesity. Over 70% of foods we consume on a daily basis are processed, and according to the World Health Organization, if current trends continue one billion people will be obese by 2030.

With our fast paced lives, we have become reliant and connected to devices, TVs, computers, tablets and smartphones and disconnected with the natural world, and the people around us.

“Overfed & Undernourished” examines modern lifestyles and a global epidemic through one boy’s inspiring story to regain his health from the inside out. After heartache, Liam, weighing in at over 80kgs (176lbs) turns to his Aunty & Uncle for help, and embarks on a journey where we witness the highs and lows, a family unite for a common cause, and the promise of transforming his life forever.

With 25% of children and 74% of adults obese or overweight, Liam’s problem is not uncommon, but, as the film illustrates, the treatment is more readily attainable than most people think.

This ground breaking documentary is interspersed with interviews and advice from leading health and wellbeing experts from around the globe and provides us with simple solutions to improve the quality of our diet, lifestyle, and personal bonds, ultimately asking us the fundamental question – are we really nourishing ourselves?

Featuring: Joe Cross (Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead), Dr. John Demartini (The Secret), Dr. Anthony Gollé, Dr. Arne Rubinstein and Don Tolman."
