1. ==> Survival Doc – Danger Lingers After the Storm

At last count more than 6 million electric customers
were without power in Florida and some places won’t
have electricity for weeks. Meantime, Hurricane Irma
continued to pound southern eastern coast Monday. Dr.
James Hubbard, aka The Survival Doctor, will share tips
on how to deal with an extended power outage and ways
to treat wounds and injuries when a doctor is out of
reach. He says even though a storm has passed, the
dangers linger. “Clean water is a huge concern. Even
though the water may look clean, it’s a cesspool of
germs and chemicals that can cause anything from a rash
to an infection—on the skin or internally.
Electrocution is a danger whenever there’s flooding,
and then there’s the issue of mosquitoes.” Dr. Hubbard
is a long-time family physician and survival medicine
expert. He shares his common-sense health advice on
dozens of radio shows, podcasts and blogs nationwide,
teaches easy-to-follow, makeshift ways to survive
disasters and in the wild, and is the author of several
books including “The Survival Doctor’s Complete
Handbook: What to Do When Help Is NOT on the Way.”

2. ==> Hurricane Home Repair Scams

One of the six top scams in America is home repair and
Bill Francavilla says the thousands of homeowners
affected by Hurricane Harvey and Irma are sitting ducks
for being scammed. “Hundreds of so-called home repair
experts will be knocking on the doors of the people
impacted by offering bona fide—and bogus—offers to get
their homes back to live-able condition, and many
people, including smart ones, won’t know the
difference.” Francavilla spent 30 years in the
financial services industry and he knows exactly how
the bad guys’ operate to push your greed and fear
buttons. He’ll reveal the top home repair scams and how
to protect yourself from them. Francavilla is the
author of “The Madoffs Among Us: Make Better Financial
Decisions and Protect Your Future.” He’s a CFP and
former senior vice president, director of Wealth
Management for Legg Mason who has extensive media
experience. Reach him at (757) 870-4590;

3. ==> Hurricane Hotline for Pet Rescue

In an effort to make disaster pet-rescue efforts even
more effective, Adopt-a-Pet.com has launched a simple
way for hurricane victims whose pets are in danger to
alert all animal welfare organizations that are
conducting rescue operations in their area. “After the
storm, national and local animal welfare organizations
will be operating in Florida doing what they can to
provide resources to help rescue, house, and return
pets to their homes when possible, but there has been
no clear single place where people can alert them to
pets need of their assistance. We have quickly launched
RescueMyAnimal.org and 1-833-RESCUE-8 to give people
who are desperate to have someone rescue their animals
a simple way to make that request,” says Adopt-a-
Pet.com cofounder and CEO, David Meyer. “Although we
cannot guarantee that any agency will be available to
help, we will immediately pass the information on to
all agencies operating in the area,” he adds. Adopt-a-
Pet.com is North America’s largest non-profit pet
adoption website. Contact Meyer at (310) 897-6546;
Davidm@adoptapet.com or Barbara Williamson at (435)
644-4408; barbara@bestfriends.org,

4. ==> Harvey, Irma: Now Let’s Talk Climate Change

Scientists know climate change is affecting Americans
now, but many in power turn a blind eye. How many
calamities and broken weather records will we require
before taking responsibility for our role in creating,
or at least worsening, so-called “natural” disasters
such as Hurricanes Harvey and Irma? How high a price –
in deaths, disease, trauma, dislocation, property
damage, and money – are we willing to pay for the
luxury of inaction? Ellen Moyer, Ph.D., says climate
change and other environmental insults such as wetland
destruction exact a high price. “What we don’t know can
definitely hurt us, and is hurting us now. Government
needs to advise us about the costs so we can decide
whether to address environmental damage in order to
prevent or lessen such misery. If a preventive approach
costs less, we deserve to know!” Moyer will discuss
practical and cost-effective ways to create better
weather and a healthier world for ourselves. Ellen
Moyer is a registered professional engineer with a B.A.
in anthropology, an M.S. in environmental engineering,
a Ph.D. in civil engineering, and 30 years of
environmental engineering experience. “Our Earth, Our
Species, Our Selves: How to Thrive While Creating a
Sustainable World” is her third book, and she is a
regular contributor to “The Huffington Post.” Contact

5. ==> Could Lifestyle Habits Be Affecting Weather?

Weather catastrophes are very unforgiving, and very
powerful, but are we hopeless in the face of these
weather disasters? Can we do anything to prevent future
incidents from occurring or at least from becoming more
frequent and more forceful? Galit Goldfarb, the founder
of The Guerrilla Diet & Lifestyle Program, says there
are! She’ll explain how human behavior is bringing on
such catastrophes and how a few simple changes to
lifestyle and eating habits can have significant
influence on the weather and our planet. Goldfarb says,
“It’s incredible how small changes can have a major
impact on the world around us. Galit Goldfarb started
The Guerrilla Diet Bootcamp in 2015 with the mission of
making education-based healing available around the
globe in an affordable, efficient and engaging way.
Today, her company helps people from all walks of life
learn and understand the best way to move towards a
healthier lifestyle not only for themselves but also
for our planet. Contact Galit Goldfarb at

6. ==> Steven King’s It – Who’s Scared of Clowns?

Pennywise, the scary clown in the new Stephen King
movie It, is sure to bring out Coulrophobia—the fear of
clowns—in many horror fans who see the movie. In fact,
even the World Clown Association is worried about the
effect the movie may have on the clown profession.
Kalliope Barlis, an expert on releasing phobias, says
fear of clowns is more common than you’d expect and
recalls treating one woman who was so upset by a clown
sighting on the street that she abandoned her infant in
his carriage. Invite Barlis, a licensed NLP trainer and
doctor of acupuncture, on your show to talk about clown
phobia, what causes it and how it can be treated; the
same process can be used to treat other phobias too.
Barlis has appeared on CBS, NBC, Fox and SiriusXM,
among other media outlets and has helped thousands of
people conquer their phobias. She is the author of
“Phobia Relief.” Contact her at (718) 751-5105;

7. ==> Hurry Up! Get in On Fall Hiring

For new college graduates looking for their first job
post-college or people already in the job market
looking to change jobs, fall represents a huge hiring
opportunity. “Anyone looking for a new job right now
needs to find their slot before the end of October when
companies start worrying about the holidays and end-of-
year budget challenges,” says Diane Huth. Invite her to
help job-seekers maximize their assets by teaching them
the secrets of personal branding as the key to
unlocking the job search market. From using social
media to writing your resume and finding the secret job
market where more than half of all jobs are found.
Diane Huth has more than 30 years of senior -level

Career.” Contact her at (888) HIREME2 or

8. ==> The Pros & Cons of a College Job

College is expensive and many students need to work, at
least part-time, while attending school. Whether it’s
by choice or necessity, having a job can be stressful
and time-consuming when you’re supposed to be focused
on studying. But Liana Downey says there’s also a value
to those college jobs beyond the money. “The skills you
earn in part-time jobs position you to be a better
leader for the future! The world has changed and CEOs
aren’t looking for the same things they once were.”
Liana can discuss the issue of skills gaps and what
specific skills employers today are looking for. Liana
Downey is an internationally renowned speaker, author
and advisor in the government and social sectors. She
taught leadership at NYU and leads a global strategic
advisory firm. Her book is “Mission Control: How
Nonprofits and Governments Can Focus, Achieve More and
Change the World.” Contact her at

9. ==> Mean Men: The Perversion of the Self-Made Man

Every day we see mean men demonstrate their power over
society – you report on them — from Martin Shkreli to
Travis Kalanick to Donald Trump. Why do we allow the
celebration of successes of mean men so often–from the
boardroom to basketball court and corner cubicle to
Oval Office? And what is their true impact on women and
the bottom line? Invite Mark Lipton to discuss the six
types of mean, mean men vs. mean women, and why women
stay married to controlling men. He’ll reveal the dark
truths about household names and challenges the status
quo with a more effective humanistic approach to
leadership. Mark Lipton is a graduate professor of
management at The New School in New York City. For over
forty years, he has been a trusted adviser to Fortune
500 corporations, think tanks, nonprofits,
international NGOs, and start-ups. His upcoming book is
“Mean Men.” Contact Kristi Hughes at (856)489-8654,

10. ==> World Heart Day Sept. 29

Every minute of every day a man or woman suffers a
heart attack and yet over 80 percent of them can be
prevented. Sudden first-time heart attacks claim the
lives of many men with no apparent risk factors. Men
who have healthy cholesterol levels, normal blood
pressure, active lives and no family history of heart
disease may still be at risk. Victoria Dupuy’s husband
Dean died at 46 of a heart attack even though he was a
runner and had been proclaimed in excellent health
following a physical exam just months before his sudden
death. In time for World Heart Day, Sept. 29th,
Victoria wants to tell your audience about a simple,
noninvasive, affordable test that detects heart disease
in its earliest, most treatable stage. It’s called a
Coronary Artery Calcium Scan (CACS) and it detects
calcium buildup in arteries. She’ll explain why your
physician is unlikely to suggest you have this test,
how to demand that he or she order it for you or even
how to arrange for the man in your life to have the
test. Victoria heads the nonprofit No More Broken
Hearts, whose mission is to promote awareness of the
CACS. Reach her at (408) 981-1744; vdupuy@sbcglobal.net

11. ==> Kate has Hyperemesis Gravidarum: What’s That?

Buckingham Palace has announced that Kate Middleton,
the Duchess of Cambridge, is pregnant again! It will be
the 3rd child for the royals, and as with her two
previous pregnancies, it appears Kate is suffering from
Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Invite Dr. Kathleen Fry to
explain what that is and how it differs from morning
sickness along with ways to treat both without drugs.
Frequently quoted in Self, Redbook, Ladies Home Journal
and other magazines, Dr. Kathleen Fry is a past
president of the American Holistic Medical Association
(now the Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine)
and a Founding Diplomate of the American Board of

12. ==> How Yoga & Meditation Can Increase Stress

More people than ever are trying yoga and many aren’t
aware of the risks. Dr. Dorena Rode found out the hard
way that yoga and meditation can INCREASE stress. “Yoga
and meditation can bring up unresolved trauma. 54% of
the US population report childhood trauma, but some
people aren’t even aware they have it!” Invite Dorena
to discuss the signs of unresolved trauma that appear
in everyday life and during yoga and meditation, and
what to do when they arise during a class or practice.

15. ==> New American Nomads: Seniors

Many Americans have faced tough new realities in the
midst of massive changes in the economy and a widening
wealth gap. One hard-hit demographic is senior citizens
– many of whom saw their stable middle-class lives
disappear in the wake of the Great Recession.
Suddenly, in their retirement years, they found
themselves in need of a job in a new economy low on
steady manufacturing and retail jobs and high on short-
term seasonal labor. As a result, to survive they join
an expanding group of modern nomads: men and women who
have given up the stability—and costs—of a home life
and have hit the road in RVs, campervans, and trailers.
Journalist Jessica Bruder immersed herself in this
diverse community, buying a van she dubbed “Halen” and
driving more than 15,000 miles over the course of two
years, meeting modern nomads. She worked alongside them
in Amazon’s CamperForce team of low-wage, seasonal
workers at the company’s fulfillment centers and at the
grueling annual sugar beet harvest in North Dakota. Her
book is “Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-
First Century.” Contact Johanna Ramos-Boyer at (703)
