"I didn’t like the sound of people gasping at the mere mention of my name. It horrified me." - Joni Mitchell in 1986, as told to Joe Smith This interview is from the Joe Smith Collection at the Library of Congress and has never been heard before. Hear the full, unedited interview with Joni @ http://blankonblank.org/joni Roberta Joan Anderson sat down for a personal, reflective interview in November 1986. The interviewer, Joe Smith, was a longtime record executive who interviewed hundreds of music legends as part of his book, Off The Record. In this extended conversation with Joni we hear an artist come to grips with both her rise to fame and the price that she felt she paid for experimenting in her career and not seeking hits and fame alone. More Joni "I was young for my age. Not as naïve as they expected. I don’t know why I seem to bring that out in people." "If you see yourself as a kingly type, then you need your serfs and your army and someone around you." "I thought, ‘All things considered, I’d rather be dancing.’" "I didn’t like the sound of people gasping at the mere mention of my name. It horrified me."

Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong | Johann Hari

Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong | Johann Hari

What really causes addiction — to everything from cocaine to smart-phones? And how can we overcome it? Johann Hari has seen our current methods fail firsthand, as he has watched loved ones struggle to manage their addictions. He started to wonder why we treat addicts the way we do — and if there might be a better way. As he shares in this deeply personal talk, his questions took him around the world, and unearthed some surprising and hopeful ways of thinking about an age-old problem.

HIV NEGATIVE AIDS, "A CHANGE IS GOING TO COME." For Once in My Life song by Stevie Wonder

HIV NEGATIVE AIDS, "A CHANGE IS GOING TO COME." For Once in My Life song by Stevie Wonder

It has been an interesting 10 years to say the least, since I received the faulty HIV diagnosis. Eight years ago, 2 doctors and 1 pharmacist told me that I would die if I stopped my medicines. Probably others have been told this too but people are fine if they didn't have other serious health issues. Fortunately for me, Dr. Andrew Maniotis had my blood tested by electron microscope in 2013 and HIV could not be found in me; it has not been found in others tested too. We were tested for bacteria, fungi, mycoplasmae, parasites, and viruses. Nevertheless, due to a technicality, I will always be labeled with AIDS because in this country having CD4's under 200, one is automatically classified with AIDS. I, along with others, in this country could walk across the border to Canada and no longer have AIDS because Canada does not recognize the CD4 criteria for an AIDS diagnosis. AIDS in Africa is based on a point system for various diseases. What other disease depends upon where one lives for a diagnosis, it is ridiculous! Now, I am an HIV-negative case of AIDS and many others are in the same boat, even if they are not sick or dying. Due to my persistence, I finally received the proper diagnosis. At one point, I was told that I had Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML), MS or a slowing growing brain tumor.They graciously offered me a brain biopsy which I listened to my better judgement and declined. Due to several MRI's and a great PA, who worked with me and my ID doctor ordered spinal taps, it was easy for the neurologist to give me the MS diagnosis, as I had MRI scans of Demyelinating Disease and abnormal corpus callosum in my brain, 5 distinct "oligoconal"bands in my spinal fluid, and numerous MS symptoms, which greatly helped to confirm this diagnosis. And if one has health issues, then seek answers elsewhere and not to an illusive, passenger retrovirus. If one is not familiar with the AIDS controversy, then go to rethinking AIDS sites or check out YouTube videos on the subject and learn what the mainstream is not telling you!

Got Healthcare?

Got Healthcare?

Trailer for 90 minute documentary of the public discussions over the making of the ACA (Obamacare). See more at http://gothealthcaremovie.com Tens of thousands of Americans suffer and die annually and will continue to die even with the ACA, for the profits of the healthcare insurance industry. Tens of millions will remain uninsured. This is a deliberate American sadism on the part of the US government.

SHOTLIST NASA (Nautical Aeronautics and Space Administration) Television Washington, DC - 27 July, 2007 1. Wide of news conference 2. SOUNDBITE: (English) Shana Dale, Deputy Administrator of NASA: "We will act immediately on the more troubling aspects of this report with respect to alcohol use and the anecdotal references of resistance by agency leadership to accepting advice or criticisms about the fitness and readiness of individuals for space flight." AP Television Washington, DC - 27 July, 2007 3. Pull out of cover page of Health Care System Review report 4. Close-up of paragraph regarding alcohol use NASA Television Washington, DC - 27 July, 2007 5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Shana Dale, Deputy Administrator, NASA: "So, we want to make sure everybody understands what our expectations are which is you will not consume alcohol within 12 hours of flight, and also that you will neither be under the influence nor the effects of alcohol at the time of launch. So, at this point, we're looking at communication in terms of our policy and also the desire to spread the word that we want an open culture where everybody is enabled and empowered and feels free to raise any safety related issue that they need to raise." NASA Television FILE: Kennedy Space Centre, Florida - 15 November, 2005 6. Various of launch of space shuttle Atlantis NASA TV FILE: Kennedy Space Centre, Florida - date unknown 7.

Set up of Howard McCurdy, School of Public Affairs, American University approaching camera 10. SOUNDBITE: (English) Howard McCurdy, School of Public Affairs, American University: "Inside NASA, people believe that they are the best and the brightest and that gives rise to a culture that doesn't anticipate these sorts of situations. If you're running a railroad or an airline and a pilot or an engineer shows up drunk, there's a procedure, you take him off the flight, right away. There's just no question about what you do. But if you've made the other assumption - that it never happens, then you don't have procedures in place for really taking care of these situations."

SOUNDBITE: (English) Frankie Canera, owner of Frenchie's Restaurant: "I have never, ever seen anybody overdoing and drinking. To me, that's not true, you know? Whatever they are saying now, I have to see to believe because I haven't seen it for 30 years. I never saw one drinking more than he's supposed to. Never." 14. Various set ups of Phillip Marr, former NASA contractor, sitting at table reading newspaper article on scandal 15. SOUNDBITE: (English) Phillip Marr, former NASA contractor: "They have a very, very strict code of decor for the astronauts and I would be shocked if they violated that, but you don't know until they check it out." 16. Newspaper box holding newspaper with article about NASA drinking scandal STORYLINE: NASA astronauts were allowed to fly after drinking heavily despite safety warnings from NASA doctors, an independent panel said in a report released on Friday. Only four paragraphs of the 12-page report dealt with alcohol use by astronauts.
