Safe Kids Worldwide
Emily Samuel – Program Director
Safe Kids World Wide
Poison Control Center 1-800-222-1222
Poison Control centers throughout the United States continue to get inundated with calls due to children getting into cleaning products as the demand for these items continues to rise. At the same time, the combination of more young children at home for virtual learning with parents and caregivers focusing on several priorities at once such as work is leading to less supervision. In the first few months of the pandemic calls to poison control numbers increased by 70 percent alone.
Safe Kids Worldwide has insightful tips to help parents navigate around these pitfalls and make sure young children don’t fall victim to these types of poisonings. For example, alcohol-based hand sanitizers are being sold in containers that look like water bottles, children’s food pouches, beer cans, and more.
Save the Poison Help number in your phone and post it visibly at home: 1-800-222-1222. Specialists at poison control centers provide free, confidential, expert medical advice 24 hours a day. They can answer questions and help with poison emergencies.

The Better Brain
How “hidden brain hunger” is making us Abusive, angry, and more violent
An interview with Bonnie J. Kaplan, Ph.D., co-author of The Better Brain: Overcome Anxiety, Combat Depression, and Reduce ADHD and Stress with Nutrition.
Whether it’s a drunken passenger having a violent meltdown at 30 thousand feet, a student disrupting a classroom, or abusive tweets aimed at someone with different political stripes, signs of a meaner, angrier, and more violent America are everywhere. So, what is triggering the general uptick in hostility and ill-will? One expert in nutrition and mental health says part of the answer lies in our failure to adequately nourish our brain, resulting in what she refers to as “hidden brain hunger”. “More than half of the food intake in North America is now drawn from ultra-processed ‘products’ with virtually no micronutrient content. It consists of sugar, fats, and many debilitating chemicals — but not minerals and vitamins — and its steady consumption is a huge cause of concern for those working in the field of brain health,” says Bonnie J. Kaplan Ph.D., co-author of The Better Brain: How to Overcome Anxiety, Combat Depression, and Reduce ADHD and Stress with Nutrition.
Dr. Kaplan says improving society’s intake of minerals and vitamins can remedy brain hunger, preventing and treating many mental health problems including anxiety, depression, and ADHD. “The scientific evidence base is very strong, but rarely covered in the media,” she says. “It is time for the general public to learn about this.”
FOODS THAT GIVE YOU THE ESSENTIAL BRAIN-HEALTH NUTRIENTS YOU NEED
“Only by consuming the proper nutrients do you have a chance of providing your brain with the biochemical building blocks it requires, which includes a steady supply of about 30 vitamins and minerals.” Here’s how to get them from food:
- Consume real food, avoid ultra-processed products.
- Include slightly processed foods like canned and frozen items that do not have a lot of added sugar and preservatives if these items make your cooking easier.
- Always try to change things up, increase variety, add new menu items.
- Try an easy new recipe each week and ask your family members to keep you company (and help out) in the kitchen.
- Remember that dark, leafy greens are a great source of those B vitamins you need for resilience, though B12 is best obtained from animal protein.
- Meat, fish, and eggs are good sources of protein, helping to regulate blood sugar and appetite as well as providing bioavailable iron and zinc.
“There are many healthy ways to eat, but research consistently shows that the diet with the most beneficial effects for mental health is the Mediterranean-style of whole foods. It is also less expensive than relying on ultra-processed products,” says Dr. Kaplan.
Hour 2 Show Notes
Our Destiny Is?
Our successes and failures delivered us to our present situation and can be used to achieve an impactful future. Every day is a blessing. How will we use our gift? Today, the questions for us are, Where will I be a year from today? Five years from today? At the end of my life? Will I progress to fulfill my purpose and serve others today?
We can’t become the person we are destined to be if we remain the person we used to be. We must advance daily to meet the destiny awaiting us. William Jennings Bryan said it this way, “Destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for; it is a thing to be achieved.” Every day and every choice propels us towards our end. Will we look back on more failures or regrets? Will we reach beyond our grasp by attempting new heights or resign ourselves to where we presently reside?
Time has reinforced my statement in The Four-Letter Word that Builds Character written in 2006, which stated, “What you do in the present will create a past that greatly influences our opportunities and dreams in the future.”
We can’t achieve our paramount future today, but we can contribute a small piece toward it. But we can ruin grand moments with a misstep resulting in lost future opportunities.
Like most individual things in life, you can’t win anything at the start or in the middle of the course. But you can lose small and large matters out of the gate with a single misstep. The key is to set the destination and focus on the daily or individual details. In World War II, as an example, everyone desired to achieve total victory. Everyone knew doing their daily job was the important thing, and doing so would conclude in final victory. Everyone knew that the failure to exercise their responsibility could result in disaster.
Champions, and those achieving their highest possible destiny, perform consistently, are relentlessly overcoming adversity, and are persistent until their time expires.
“Where we are is nowhere near as important as where we finish. I believe that where we are today is God’s gift to us. What we become will be our gift to God.” – Richard Battle
What will we do from this point to accomplish our purpose and bask in the exhilaration of success? We should:
- Recognize that regardless of where we are, every day is a gift and grasp life’s opportunities.
- Forget prior setbacks, so they don’t hobble us from advancing.
- Inventory our gifts and strengths so we don’t waste time pursuing opportunities we possess no skills.
- Retreat into a quiet space (regularly) to listen for the Spirit’s direction. It is amazing what we discover when we stop and listen to the very best advice available.
- Collaborate with family, friends, and colleagues. The give-and-take of sharing ideas ripples over time exponentially benefitting people beyond our vision and time.
- Review and revise progress, goals, opportunities regularly. Avoid distractions leading to rabbit trails that don’t contribute to our mission.
- Enjoy the results of our efforts realizing our conscious efforts contributed to the long-line of advancement of humanity in history.

Canadian Truckers Inspire US Truckers
Canadian Truckers Inspire US Truckers to Convoy to Washington, DC
This is a movement of people that are sick of being told how to live their lives. This group is standing up for millions of Americans that want the freedoms that our constitution gives us. Every time the Right wants to use its freedoms, the Left tries to take it away by shutting down social media accounts, forcing the vaccine on the right, pushing mandates, (masks), that crush small businesses, etc., etc. There is a laundry list of things that the Left does to block the Right from their freedoms.
BIO: Keith Lambert is an entrepreneur that grew up poor in a tough area of Pawtucket, watching his parents struggling to pay rent, buy food, and clothes. Both of them would work multiple jobs, but never seemed to get ahead. He made a promise to himself that he would make them proud and pull them out of poverty. His parents were his inspiration and drive for his success.
In 2021 after the famous Nascar race winner Brandon Brown won the Talladega race, “Lets Go Brandon” was born. It was so popular quickly it consumed 80%+ of the store’s sales. He then opened 5 additional “Let’s Go Brandon” stores and here we are, still going strong.

Cori Bush Has it Wrong
Congresswoman Cori Bush (D-MO)
“If you side with Cori Bush you are against the Constitution. … You’re just like her you’re a communist too.” – John Rush
John’s full comments here.
Jersey Joe: Supreme Court justices are charged with only one responsibility and that single responsibility is to determine if a law, policy or practice is Constitutional or not, and NOT if said law, policy or practice is “Fair” or “Just”. In case you haven’t yet figured out the answer to the question “What is wrong with her tweet?”, the answer is NONE OF THOSE THINGS should ever be taken into account when determining if a law is Constitutional or not! It is not unheard of for the Court to rule that a law is Constitutional but to note in their opinion that they consider it to be a bad law that should be addressed and changed by the responsible legislative body. An example of this principle is illustrated by the response attributed to Supreme Court Judge Oliver Wendell Holmes who, in response to a pleading by a young attorney who kept insisting that he had come before the court seeking justice for his client, Holmes replied: “This is a court of law young man, not a court of justice!”
It is past time for a Black woman to be named to the Supreme Court.
— Cori Bush (@CoriBush) January 26, 2022
I would love to see a Black woman who will insist on racial, environmental, social, disability, and economic justice named to the Supreme Court.
Identity is important but it is not enough.
