On this week's show cohosts Stuart Tanner and James Moore will be speaking with South African environmental activist Mariam Mayet.
Mayet. who lives in Johannesberg, is the founder and director of the African Centre for Biosafety. Under her direction, the organisation has developed from one with a focus primarily on biosafety to one with four key programmes: biosafety, biopiracy, agrofuels and challenging industrial agricultural models such as the Green Revolution push in Africa.
Her particular interest is in cutting edge research, providing sound credible information and analysis and putting information into the public domain.
Alan Gompers, author of Maximum Security - The True Meaning of Freedom, will be our guest on Writers' Voices this Friday, May 22, at 1pm.
Monica Hadley and Chamaigne Montanab will take a look inside this profound book about a man whose search for worldly security landed him in prison where he discovered real security and freedom through meditation and the teachings of Swami Muktananda.
He takes us on his journey with him through high finance, selling drugs, navigating the dangerous waters of prison, and finding unshakable peace. A former con-man, in this book he describes a spiritual awakining, profound insights, and inner peace with clarity that can't be faked.
Love Beloveds of IAH,
This week a look at the true calendar of Goud the creator:
One not made with hands
one that no one can alter, for it is in the heavens, appointed for times and seasons and high set apart days.
[ nobody's right if everybody's wrong ! ]
Psalms in be tween the reasoning.
Love Bro. I O E L

Ms. Rienertsen has also appeared on the cover of Triathlete magazine and Max Sports & Fitness magazine. She also scooped up the well-deserved ESPY award in 2006.

Thursdays at 9:00 AM and Sundays at 8:00 AM I've been highlighting the best, most interesting music of the last 50 years one year at time. When I began surveying 1969's music, I thought, "This might take a couple weeks." Well, 2 months later, we're still not done, and for good reason.
1969 was a pivotal year (political and social issues dominated world discussion, Woodstock, The Beatles' demise, psychedelics spread coast to coast, FM radio was liberated from elevators, sex came out of bedrooms, music technology caught up with musicians' creativity), and likewise the music scene spun the world like a top.
Sylvester (Sly) Stone was at his creative peak, supergroups like Crosby Stills & Nash and Led Zeppelin debuted radically different yet equally mind-blowing sounds, Bob Dylan returned his fans to country roots they didn't know they had, and British progressive rock artists The Moody Blues, King Crimson, and Procol Harum merged musicology and pharmacology.
