This week, we talked about the US-China deal that will (hopefully) massively reduce the pollution from both countries. We also touched on the Keystone XL Pipeline and alternative fuels. Then we touched on the Gruber comments and Obamacare in general. We ended with a light touch on immigration reform amidst the looming threat of executive action.

Unfortunately we had a few technical issues this week which cut off the first chunk of the discussion and a few sweepers in-between. This will hopefully be fixed for next week. Nevertheless, catch the replay after the break, as always. Keep it locked.

N4P: Brian Cuban-Eating Disorders Do Not Discriminate

By Shelly Lynn | NFP | November 15th, 2014 | LEAVE A COMMENT

Men and body image are usually not associated with each other. More and more we hear about the issue of photo shopping women’s bodies to make them look thinner or in some places bigger. There is a lot of media attention on just how ridiculous the body proportions are supposed to be for females aspiring to that ultimate goal of beauty and really acceptance in society. But what you don’t hear very often are the stories of men who struggle with the same issues of body acceptance. Those men who you’d never assume even think about body image. Brian Cuban talks to Shelly about his experiences with anorexia and bulimia and how he overcame those eating disorders with the right support system. His book, Shattered Image, recounts his life story.

For resources on eating disorders you can head over to the counseling center at the University of Miami or call them at 305 284- 5511

‘Not For Profit’: Veterans Day Special Featuring Bobby White

By Shelly Lynn | NFP | November 8th, 2014 | LEAVE A COMMENT

Veterans Of Foreign Wars Post 8195 was first founded in 1961, when a group of thirty Veterans decided to start something meaningful for the community. This post was first started as a predominantly African-American Post in the 1960s. Today VFW Post 8195 has grown into a service designed to support veterans of all backgrounds through counseling, community activities and by providing a place to socialize and heal with other veterans. One way the Post is helping to raise awareness of these issues facing our soldiers is through the publication of their new book. The book details many of the journeys soldiers experienced during and after the Vietnam war. All proceeds from the Post 8195 Book, go to supporting the Post and acts as a donation. Buy their book on Amazon by clicking the link below:

‘Not For Profit’: Transplant Foundation

By Shelly Lynn | NFP | November 1st, 2014 | LEAVE A COMMENT

Transplant Foundation is dedicated to assisting patients both during the pre-operative stages and the rehabilitative period, providing financial assistance to cover urgent needs such as transportation, medications, temporary housing at the transplant center and so much more.

Unquestionably, the number of successful transplants is limited by the critical shortage of donors. Transplant Foundation supports ongoing donor education programs to educate the Florida community and encourage organ donation and discussion within families. Transplant Foundation utilizes its Mentor Program, Community Outreach efforts and Education Forums as tools to educate transplant patients and the community about organ donation and transplantation.

This week, we started by following up on the Florida election situation on the heels of the third debate. We then talked about some lesser-known yet still very important measures on the ballot for Florida this year: medical marijuana and the decision for who gets to appoint judges to the State Supreme Court (Amendments two and three, respectively). We then moved into medicare and broader Florida politics. We ended by postulating about the 2014 election nationwide. As always, hit the jump after the break to catch the replay. Keep it locked.
