"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."

Just a bit of fun. Enjoy!
Do you worry about your vacuum? Not in the way where you're concerned about breaking a valuable object - but in an emotional, empathetic concern for its being? If so, then you're primed for today's discussion about the wellbeing of robots! We can personify objects, assigning them human qualities, but will technology get to a point where it DESERVES these moral concerns? Can you imagine a day when you will empathize with your computer or care if it lives or dies?

If you are expecting to find a quiet sewing circle at the North Preston Seniors' Club, the burst of colour and energy that hit you when you walk through the doors is enough stop you in your tracks. The conversation is nothing short of boisterous as a dozen or so sets of nimble fingers dance across fabric and wool. Among them is an honorary member: nurse practitioner Carolyn Mitchell. The growing pile of tiny purple knit hats will find a home atop newborns at the IWK soon. It was Carolyn’s idea. Ivory Provo is the president of the North Preston Community Health and Wellness Centre’s Senior Citizens' Club and remembers how it started. “She came in to our seniors room one day and she was sitting down talking to me and I was knitting, and she came up with this idea that we should do it for the children’s hospital.” “She just comes in and talks with us.” says Norma Downey, another member of the club who has a growing appreciation for what Carolyn brings to the group. “She’s really nice. Friendly. Any questions that you ask her she’ll find the answers.” Carolyn leverages the relationship to get a better understanding of what the health needs are in the community she serves. “A simple knitting project has built up a relationship with the seniors. They feel comfortable around me and I can identify some needs that they have.” It’s this type of unusual interaction from a primary health care provider that is becoming more familiar in Nova Scotia, but for many it’s still something new “A nurse practitioner is a nurse who has advanced education and training that allows us to prescribe medications, to order tests, to diagnose certain conditions and to manage chronic health conditions so we do a lot of the same things that a family doctor does,” says Carolyn, “…but we’re still nurses so we still come to the patient encounter from a nursing perspective….You could be seeing patients in the office then running out to do a home visit for someone who can’t make it to the office, or then meeting group in the evening but having the freedom to be able to meet the needs of the community, and meet them where they are.” A few days later, the group is assembled in a much more formal setting in an IWK boardroom in Halifax, but the energy level is just as high as it was back in North Preston. The group is enjoying a small thank you tea from the IWK before heading off for a tour. Carolyn is there too, sharing in the satisfaction of donating boxes of handmade hats and blankets that will surely go to good use. Just as important for Carolyn is the satisfaction of knowing that behind every stitch in the impressive pile there was conversation. Sometimes they talked about what they’e eating, how they’re struggling with mobility, or just musing about how much candy is too much before bedtime for their grandkids. Carolyn has woven herself inside of those conversations and the hours of chatting about the things that colour their lives, quietly building a better understanding of how to deliver the healthcare they need. “I spend some part of my day cutting blankets and knitting, and I don’t think a lot of places would allow me to do that as a nurse practitioner but it’s something that invests in building the relationships with the community members, and we build a trust.
Rosie O'Donnell's estranged wife, Michelle Rounds, wants a judge to force the famous talk show host to submit to random drug testing until their custody battle is resolved. TMZ learned that Rounds and O'Donnell will face off in court on Tuesday over the custody of 2-year-old Dakota. Sources say if the judge keeps the status quo while the case runs its course, Michelle's lawyer will ask for an order requiring Rosie to submit to random drug and alcohol testing, and if the tests reveal a problem she can then ask for an emergency order. When asked O'Donnell replied that she doesn't comment on legal issues. http://www.tmz.com/2015/05/03/rosie-odonnells-wife-michelle-rounds-rosie-must-be-drug-tested-stat/ http://www.wochit.com
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.
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.
