1. ==> Is it Safe to Travel Abroad?

The United States has issued a warning to its citizens
in Europe in the wake of the deadly terrorist attacks
in Brussels. The U.S. State Department alert came as a
shutdown of Brussels Airport, targeted in two of three
bomb blasts Tuesday, remained in place, causing
disruption across the continent. The attacks have
travelers suddenly thinking twice about travelling
abroad. Invite Russell Hannon to put travelers’
concerns into context. He’ll offer ways to educate
yourself of potential risks abroad, how to protect
yourself once you’re there, and what websites you
should visit before you book your trip. Russell Hannon
is a travel expert who has been featured by Johnny Jet,
CNBC, FOX, America Tonight, CTV, ShopSmart, Yahoo
Finance, and Around the World Travel TV. He is the
author of “Stop Dreaming Start Traveling: The Ultimate
Guide to Traveling More and Spending Less.” Contact him
at (403) 354-0349; Russell@breakthetravelbarrier.com

2. ==> Terrorism Expert – How to Stay Safe Anywhere

U.S. citizens traveling to and throughout Europe have
been advised that “terrorist groups continue to plan
near-term attacks” in the region, possibly targeting
sporting events, tourist sites, restaurants and
transportation. Here at home, the Brussels attacks
remind us that terrorism can happen anywhere, at any
time. Robert Sholly, a retired army colonel who is
experienced in both counter-terrorism and performing
international security assessments, says while we
cannot live in fear, it is wise to live with caution
and prudence. He’ll discuss the most dangerous public
places and how to keep your family safer in movie
theaters, malls, restaurants and while travelling.
He’ll explain why you need a security plan before you
enter a mall, what to do if shots are fired in a
crowded movie theater and the physical signs to watch
for that could identify a potential shooter on public
transportation. As a counter-terrorism specialist,
Sholly evaluated and designed security for dams,
tunnels, ports, airports and international boundaries.
Sholly has designed security plans for family homes,
corporate buildings, compounds and large
infrastructures. He speaks Arabic, Farsi, Dari and is a
Middle East security specialist. He was also a member
of the United Nations international peace keeping
forces that won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1988. Contact
him at (281) 482-8887; robert@robertsholly.com

3. ==> The Greatest Story Ever Told – What Churches get

John Stahl says churches have been getting the
resurrection story wrong for decades, yet year after
year they show a drama where Jesus comes out of the
tomb. He says, “That never takes place anywhere in the
Bible! The stone in front of the tomb was rolled back,
not so Jesus could get out of the tomb, rather, so we
could get inside.” Stahl says it was another way of God
inviting us in, to be a part of the greatest story ever
told and that it’s part of the larger message that it’s
not enough to talk about our faith, we have to live it.
Invite John to discuss the Easter story and other
stories from the Bible that show and share God’s love
and how it ties to our everyday lives. John Stahl is a
businessman and pastor. His book, “Just JESUS Them,”
comes with a warning symbol that it’s not your average
devotional, and is actually a ‘DO’-votional. Contact
him at (330) 283-3990; jstahl@lcinetworking.com

4. ==> Former NBA Scout on March Madness

Invite longtime top evaluator of college basketball
players Richard Sheubrooks to talk March Madness from
an insider perspective. He’ll discuss the top recruits,
which players are ready to step right into the NBA,
which are great at the college level but not likely to
make top pros, which schools in the March Madness
tournament produce the most and/or the best pros, etc.
Richard Sheubrooks is a former NBA scouting director
and marketing executive with NIKE. He’s worked with
legendary UCLA coach John Wooden, Jerry West and
Michael Jordan. He’s the author of “The Greatest Story
Never Told,” and the upcoming book “The Assist,”
inspired by Michael Jordan and Dean Smith. Contact him
at (980) 230-3070; richsheu23@gmail.com

5. ==> NCAA Betting – Fun or Addiction?

Millions of sports fans have filled out brackets and
placed bets on the NCAA Tourney with friends and
colleagues. Even those who don’t work in an office can
get in on the action with one of the many online
betting sites like DraftKings and FanDuel. While most
people join a pool at the office or play fantasy sports
with friends as a fun distraction, there are many for
whom the gambling becomes an addiction. Life coach and
addiction specialist Thomas Gagliano will explain the
signs that your March Madness gambling may be teetering
on addiction. Gagliano returned to school to receive an
MSW at age 51. He’s a life coach and the author of
several books including his latest, “Don’t Put Your
Crap in Your Kid’s Diaper.” Contact him at (732)
266-4952 (NJ); tom@thomasgagliano.com

6. ==> March Madness Lessons for the Office

What gets a team to the Final Four? Some might say it’s
talent, hard work and good coaching. Stuart Blyth says
it’s the same thing in the corporate world.
“Unquestionably, the best people managers are the
coaches of sports teams. They know everything there is
to know about each individual team member, and the
stakes are high.” Blyth, an athlete and sports fanatic,
says the most successful coaches—and managers—know how
to get the very best from each team member. He’ll
explain why the management skills prevalent in pro
sports are the missing link in the corporate structure,
and how watching sports can make you more successful at
work! Blyth is a British management training
consultant and the author of “Football Field to
Boardroom: The Playbook for Creating World-Class
Business Teams.” Contact him at +44 7788 91494;

7. ==> It’s Teach Music America Week!

Vincent James is on a mission to promote how valuable
and important music is in all of our lives:
academically, therapeutically or just overall making us
a happier society. To that end, he and the group Keep
Music Alive are marking the 2nd Annual “Teach Music
America” week, a celebration that asks musicians &
music teachers to find at least one new student to
teach a free 30 minute lesson. “We believe that by
encouraging music teachers and potential students to
reach out to each other during the month of March, many
of them will continue to teach and learn music from
each other long after the month is over. Our goal is to
get as many new students starting to learn how to play
music as we possibly can. Only by creating interest in
new students will the art of music continue in our
society.” Invite Vincent on your show to help remind
people how important and valuable music is and all the
reasons why. Vincent James is the founder of
KeepMusicAlive.org and author of the book “88+ Ways
Music Can Change Your Life”. Contact him at (610)
812-5231 (PA); vincent@KeepMusicAlive.org

8. ==> ‘Black Box’ Warning on Painkillers Not Enough

In an attempt to help slow the prescription drug abuse
epidemic, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
announced Tuesday that immediate-release opioid
painkillers such as oxycodone and fentanyl will now
have to carry a “black box” warning about the risk of
abuse, addiction, overdose and death. Chronic pain
treatment expert Cindy Perlin says that, and new CDC
guidelines for docs are long overdue, but not nearly
enough. “Doctors and health insurers created the worst
drug epidemic in U.S. history by favoring the use of
highly addictive opioid prescription painkillers over
other available treatments for pain and they continue
to ignore common sense solutions to curtailing the
opioid epidemic.” Perlin adds that the CDC guidelines
ignore, and insurance companies rarely cover, other
proven treatments for pain, including chiropractic,
massage, acupuncture, exercise programs, nutritional
and herbal interventions, marijuana and low level laser
therapy. Perlin is a licensed social worker, and
certified biofeedback practitioner who has appeared on
numerous radio and TV programs. She’s the author of
“The Truth About Chronic Pain Treatments: The Best and
Worst Strategies for Becoming Pain Free.” Contact her
at (518) 439-6431; cperlin@nycap.rr.com

9. ==> Warmest Month in Recorded History

Climate scientists say February 2016 was the hottest
month since 1880 when records began. Is this warming
‘returning with a vengeance’ after temperatures
remained nearly constant from 1998 to 2013? Or is this
the result of the eruption of Bárðarbunga volcano in
central Iceland from August 2014 to February 2015, the
highest rate of basaltic lava extrusion since 1783?
Rapid extrusion of basaltic lava has been associated
with rapid warming throughout the history of Earth. Dr.
Peter Langdon Ward worked 27 years as a geophysicist
and volcanologist with the US Geological Survey. He
spent the last ten years reexamining the many
assumptions underlying greenhouse warming theory. Ward
is the author of the new book “What Really Causes
Global Warming? Greenhouse Gases or Ozone Depletion?”

10. ==> Environmentalist Praises DARK Act Defeat

Products with GMOs have been ubiquitous on grocery
shelves in America for more than two decades, but in
recent years, consumers have become more vocal in
wanting to be informed if the food they buy contains
GMOs. Last week, Senators blocked a bill that would
have prohibited states from issuing their own mandatory
GMO labeling laws. Environmentalists called it the DARK
Act (Deny Americans the Right to Know) and fought hard
against it. Ph.D. environmental engineer and
sustainability consultant Ellen Moyer hails the defeat
and says, “The government’s decision-making about GMOs
has huge ramifications for our health, the environment,
and our democracy. The U.S. government has refused to
call for GMO labeling, unlike 64 other countries –
including China – and is now considering overturning
hard-won state laws that require GMO labeling. People
deserve to know what is in their food.” Ellen is an
independent environmental consultant with more than 30
years of professional experience. She works on projects
for federal agencies and Fortune 500 companies to clean
up hazardous waste sites contaminated by a wide array
of harmful chemicals. She’s a Huffington Post
contributor and the author of several books. Contact
her at (413) 862-3452; ellenmoyer@em-green.com

11. ==> You Can Prevent Spring Allergies?

We may love that winter is over but millions of
Americans dread springtime and the sneezing, coughing
and wheezing that ensues. Stop and smell the flowers?
Many people can’t even go outside! Dr. Jim Roach, a
leading integrative practitioner, says many people
reach for antihistamines to get through the season, but
that comes with its own risks. “Antihistamines can
cause all sorts of problems including brain fog,
urinary retention, acid reflux and constipation. And
they may, as anticholinergics, even promote dementia.”
Dr. Roach will explain how to prevent allergies with
probiotics, zinc and vitamin D and ways to treat
allergy symptoms that actually have beneficial side
effects! Jim Roach, MD, has appeared on numerous radio
and TV programs. He’s a speaker, consultant, educator,
researcher, and widely sought clinician with patients
from across the country. He is also author of “God’s
House Calls” which discusses spiritual near-death
experiences of his patients and seeks to de-stigmatize
spiritual experiences. Contact Dr. Roach at (859)
846-4453 (office); jproach@aol.com

12. ==> Pets Get Spring Allergies Too!

Did you know that animals can also suffer from spring
allergies? Invite veterinarian Dr. Judy Morgan to share
natural treatments for spring allergies in pets. She’ll
also reveal non-toxic, natural ways to fight fleas and
ticks and ways to help pets who suffer from
thunderstorm anxiety. Dr. Morgan says many people don’t
realize some fresh fruits and vegetables can be harmful
to animals. She’ll run down which are safe, and what to
avoid. Dr. Morgan has been a practicing veterinarian
for more than 30 years. She is the author of several
books and is co-host of a podcast on holistic pet care.
Contact Dr. Morgan at (609) 202-0999; (856)881-7470 or

13. ==> Is Your Retirement at Risk?

With Boomers entering retirement with 401ks that have
been decimated by the economy, many soon-to-be seniors
fear the worst for what is supposed to be their ‘Golden
Years.’ Financial advisor Rodger Friedman says, “The
greatest financial conundrum this generation is facing
is longevity. People are living longer, with higher
health care costs, and continued escalation of living
expenses. How can we financially afford to keep living
and have a sustainable and satisfying retirement?”
Invite Friedman to discuss the reasons many people
don’t get the right kind of retirement advice, and how
to build a relationship with an adviser that will work
for your individual needs. Friedman will talk about the
biggest risk facing retirees today, why being your own
financial adviser is a big mistake, and how to make
sure your relationship with your adviser is a truly
beneficial one for you. Listeners will also get access
to a free 17 page special report on retirement
planning. Rodger Friedman is the author of “Forging
Bonds of Steel.” Contact him toll free at 1-844 -3- my-
plan or 1-844-369-7526 or

14. ==> Why are Millennials So Depressed?

College is supposed to be the best time of your life
with endless fun and carefree living. These perceptions
are hiding the reality of a deeper issue that is
plaguing millions of students around the country: the
anxiety and depression epidemic. Jake Heilbrunn has a
unique understanding of why anxiety and depression are
so prevalent today and how to overcome them. After one
semester of college, Jake realized the path he was on
didn’t align with his true self. Following his
intuition, he left college and spent four months
backpacking through Central America alone, with no cell
phone or ability to speak Spanish. He’ll discuss why
nearly a third of college students say they are
depressed, what millennials are searching for in
college and careers, and why parents and employers are
clueless about it. At just 19 years old, Jake has just
begun a Kickstarter campaign to release his book “Off
the Beaten Trail.” Contact him at (858) 750-0413 (CA);

15. ==> April Fool’s- Don’t Be Fooled when Dating

Everybody loves a good joke but there’s nothing funny
about being fooled when it comes to love. Online dating
sites are full of guidance to help you match up with a
mate but finding a truly good partner is about lasting
traits like conflict resolution, effective
communication skills and REAL sexual chemistry. Invite
clinical sexologist and relationship coach Dr., Claudia
Six on your show to learn how to pick a good partner
and learn the red flags to avoid, and what no-so-
obvious things you should be looking for. Dr. Claudia
Six has an M.A. in counseling psychology and a PhD in
clinical sexology. Her upcoming book is “Erotic
Integrity: How to be True to Yourself Sexually.”
