Making that mind-body connection with Amanda Webster

In October of 2018, Amanda stood on the ledge of a Canadian hotel room, ready to endher life. A song playing at the right place at the right time brought her down and she made a pact with herself. She was going to give it her all for one year. If she still felt the same desolation after that, she gave herself permission to jump. The only problem was that she had no idea where to start. She’d seen the counselors, taken the medications, journaled and read as many self-help books as her brain could handle. Having majored as a Mind-Body-Wellness practitioner at the award-winning Southwest Institute of Healing Arts in 2011 with a specialty in holistic nutrition, she finally concluded that it was time to get back to basics. It wasn’t eating a salad or taking a Yoga class or reading a book. It was reconstructing her lifestyle and way of thinking as a whole. Website: https://amandawebsterhealth.com

Different Strokes: Serena, Venus, and the unfinished black tennis revolution with Cecil Harris

Cecil is the author of four books that reside at the intersection of sports and sociology. His new book, Different Strokes: Serena, Venus, and the unfinished black tennis revolution was published in 2020 by the University of Nebraska Press. In it, he relates that the days of tennis as a country club sport for the aristocracy have long passed, as have the pre–Open era days when black players faced long odds just to be invited to the four Grand Slam events. He wants young athletes to know that though tennis is expensive, there’s a path for families to follow that can lead to success: Serena and Venus were home-schooled, largely shunned by junior tennis and have always had other interests. His previous books are: - Breaking the Ice: The Black Experience in Professional Hockey (Insomniac Press, Toronto, 2004) - Call the Yankees My Daddy (Lyons Press, Connecticut, 2005) - Charging the Net: A History of Blacks in Tennis from Althea Gibson and Arthur Ashe to the Williams Sisters (Ivan Dee, Chicago, 2007). He also contributed a chapter to the anthology, African Americans and Popular Culture (Praeger, Connecticut, 2008). He has been a sports writer for The New York Times, the New York Daily News, Newsday, the New York Post, The (Raleigh) News & Observer, The Indianapolis Star, The Sporting News, The Hockey News, the Associated Press, and USA Today. As a journalist he's covered major events like the Summer Olympics in Atlanta; the World Series, the NBA finals, the NFL playoffs, the New York City Marathon, the Stanley Cup playoffs, and the U.S. Open and WTA Championships. He appeared as an authority in the 2019 CBS Sports documentary, Althea & Arthur, about tennis Hall of Famers Althea Gibson and Arthur Ashe, the 2018 hockey documentary, Soul on Ice, and the 2011 documentary, A Perfect Match, about Gibson and her Wimbledon-champion doubles partner Angela Buxton. He was born in Brooklyn, New York, and live in Yonkers, New York and graduated summa cum laude from Fordham University. Website: https://muckrack.com/cecil-harris-1

How to Up Your Influence with Josh Elledge

Josh Elledge is U.S. Navy veteran who became a serial entrepreneur who builds the companies he needs most in the world. In 2014, He launched UpMyInfluence to help entrepreneurs like himself attract the perfect audiences and grow their brands without the crazy costs and contracts associated with traditional PR companies. Since then, UpMyInfluence (UMI) has evolved into a purpose-driven platform bent on totally DEMOCRATIZING access to influence. Josh wholeheartedly believes UMI has a moral imperative to help entrepreneurs own their expertise, share their wisdom, and serve the world with their collective messages. Oh, and to help members grow revenue too! UMI was the natural outgrowth of his first startup, SavingsAngel.com which had grown to more than 50 employees and grossed more than $6 million in sales with less than $500 in advertising spent. He did it all through building authority and serving audiences in the media. Josh is a frequent speaker at business and startup conferences including Social Media Marketing World and a Tony Robbins event for his Business Mastery grads. He’s a weekly consumer expert on Fox 35 Orlando and News 13, writes a syndicated column for nine newspapers (with total readership above 1.1 million readers), and regularly appears on more than 75 TV stations across the country.

The coronavirus and returning the power of health to back to the individual with Dr. Gurpreet Padda

With the topical news of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) taking the world by storm, I thought I'd pick the brain of Dr. Gurpreet Padda and ask how this affects the 'at risk' patients he treats and how we can return the power of health to back the individual. Dr. Gurpreet Padda believes the health of the individual is the fundamental unit of the health of the community. He exposes misaligned incentives and return the power of health to the individual. We believe empowered individuals change their communities. It is his mission to bring real hope and transformational change to patients who would otherwise be consigned to a lifetime of medications, doctor’s visits, and suffering. He uses a combination of lifestyle intervention, medication management, and emerging scientific research to help patients. Humans are complex adaptive systems, and systematic failure is rarely a single cause phenomenon. Our historical disease models of single cause pathology are inadequate for this new synthesized Universe. Check out his websites: http://www.reversediabetes.md & http://www.painmd.tv
