Special Guest – Tor McPartland

Tor and Kathryn McPartland refused to use toxic insecticides, but they could not stand the uninvited pesky visitors who let themselves in almost daily. They knew something needed to be done, and started searching for a product they felt safe using around their two daughters, dogs, cat and their beloved surrounding flora and fauna.

And, by the 1990’s they finally found the solution (though some might say that the solution found them). Made 100% from edible plant extracts and water, Orange Guard kills bugs on contact without harming the environment, your home, or yourself. The first natural and organic product of its’ kind, Orange Guard came into the market and outperformed leading chemical solutions as well as met rigorous standards to be EPA registered for use around human, pets and food, FDA GRAS Approved (safe to be used in and around food) and OMRI-listed.

Today, we’re still a family-owned business, sourcing ingredients and producing our products in the U.S.A.

Pesticides Linked to Cancer in Children, Adults in Western U.S. There is a strong connection between pesticide use and cancer rates in the Western United States, finds research recently published by scientists at the University of Idaho and Northern Arizona University. Two studies published in the peer-reviewed journal GeoHealth used geospatial data and publicly available pesticide databases to uncover the relationship between chemical-heavy agricultural practices and cancer in both adults and children. As the rate of chronic diseases like cancer continues to increase in the United States, and more and more studies find these diseases to be pesticide-induced, it is imperative for the public to put increased pressure on regulators and lawmakers to enact meaningful measures that eliminate pesticide use and the hazards these chemicals pose. Of the two studies conducted by the research team, the first study modeled the connection between pesticide use and cancer incidence for adults and children in 11 western states (Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming), while the second study focuses on childhood cancer rates in Idaho’s 44 counties. Both studies utilized databases established by public entities, including the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Pesticide National Synthesis Project database, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Pesticide Industry Sales and Usage Estimates, National Cancer Institute (NCI) State Cancer Profiles and the Cancer Data Registry of Idaho. Rather than focus solely on the impacts of pesticide use on farmers or agricultural workers, the studies consider the broader effects of agricultural pesticide use on the public at large. For the first study, researchers took the top 25 most used pesticides identified by EPA estimates and cross-referenced them with USGS data to determine the amount of each pesticide used by state and county. These data were then modeled against NCI county-level cancer incidence. At the state level, an association is found between the total amount of all pesticides evaluated and both overall and pediatric cancer incidence. Delving deeper into specific pesticide types, a strong connection is found between the amount of fumigants applied in each state and the rate of pediatric cancers.

Hour 2

Special Guest – Laban Ditchburn

A child badly affected by divorce, poverty and dysfunction, Laban sought validation and escapism in all the wrong places. But through self-discovery and a ton of hard work, he conquered the full gamut of addiction—alcohol, sex, gambling, drugs, and negative self-talk.  More interestingly, by finding and removing the root cause of his need to escape, giving up these addictions has been almost effortless. Today, he defines the word transformation.

Losing sixty pounds of body fat and replacing it with thirty pounds of muscle mass and bone density, Laban also found a cure for his “incurable” auto-immune disease. His mental health, cognitive function, and ability to handle, recover and thrive from extreme physical challenges, all have improved exponentially. Physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally in charge of his own destiny, Laban’s journey continues to inspire those ready to change their lives. An exemplar and a revolutionary, he revels in unabashedly sharing what he’s learned: how to conquer the demons you don’t know you have, and how to be unstoppable in getting to where you want to be.

These days he gets his fix from the madness of ultra-marathon running, smashing the glass-ceiling of limiting beliefs and the demolition of a hot carnivore BBQ. Continuing his writing, inspiring and transformational speaking, Laban is living his purpose as The World’s Best Courage Coach. He lives in the beautiful Riviera Maya of Mexico, with the woman who is responsible for his limitless approach to life, his soon to be wife, the bravest person he knows and the future mother of their giant brood of children, Anna.

Unvaccinated cadets ordered off Coast Guard Academy campus  The Coast Guard Academy is disenrolling seven cadets for failing to comply with the military’s COVID-19 vaccination mandate, after their requests for religious exemptions were denied and they were ordered to leave campus. The academy in New London, Connecticut, confirmed the disenrollments Tuesday, The Day newspaper reported. A lawyer for several of the cadets said they were told on Aug. 18 that they had to leave campus by 4 p.m. the next day. “They were escorted to the gate like they were criminals or something,” the lawyer, Michael Rose, told the newspaper. “No one helped them with travel arrangements or gave them any money,” said Rose, based in Summerville, South Carolina. “One had to get to California, one to Alaska. One’s estranged from home and living out of his truck, according to an email I received describing his situation.” Rose said two of the seven cadets had no homes to return to.  The cadets’ names have not been released. Rose said academy officials were “particularly mean-spirited” and could have waited until pending lawsuits challenging the military’s COVID-19 vaccination requirement were concluded. In one of those lawsuits, Rose is representing more than 30 plaintiffs, including military personnel and service academy cadets, in litigation pending in federal court in South Carolina. Several of the cadets are from the Coast Guard Academy.

Is bird flu the next pandemic? Experts say a human outbreak is ‘on the horizon’ after record numbers of deadly strain in animals The next pandemic-causing virus may already be spreading in Britain — in the country’s chicken coups and duck ponds. Some experts believe a human outbreak of avian flu is ‘on the horizon’ after record numbers of cases in wild birds and poultry in the past year. There are increasing concerns that, as it spreads in animals, the virus could evolve to infect humans and cause a global crisis deadlier than Covid. After all, that is what happened with so-called Spanish flu at end of World War I, which was caused by a similar strain to the one circulating now (H5N1). Although estimates vary greatly, the former is thought to have killed 50 million people — about one in every 35 of those alive at the time. So far the new virus has been detected in more than 22million birds and poultry globally since September 2021 — double the previous record the year before.  Not only is the virus spreading at speed, it is also killing at an unprecedented level, leaving some experts to say this is the deadliest variant so far. In the UK, feathered carcasses have littered beaches on islands off Scotland and the east coast for months, while seagulls have been dropping from the skies in Brighton.
