Hour 1: OPEN DISCUSSION on Run, Hide, Fight
In the wake of the recent mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, a video first released in 2012 is being recirculated to remind people of what to do should they find themselves in an active shooter situation.
Although the chances of encountering an active shooting situation are small, the recent shootings in Paris, Colorado Springs and San Bernardino have many people on edge. And with our country’s leaders and law enforcement agencies giving us mixed messages about safety in America, the failure of the government to stop terrorist attacks, and the increasing threat of terrorism, there may be plenty of reasons to be concerned.
JOIN Barb and John as they discuss Run, Hide, Fight and whether mass surveillance is actually making us more vulnerable to terrorism.
Hour 2: Dr. Michael Fossel
Joining the show during the second hour is the world’s foremost expert on the clinical use of telomerase for age-related diseases, Dr. Michael Fossel. Dr. Fossel will be discussing his new book, The Telomerase Revolution: The Enzyme That Holds the Key to Human Aging…and Will Soon Lead to Longer, Healthier Lives.
Science is on the cusp of a revolutionary breakthrough. We now understand more about aging–and how to prevent and reverse it–than ever before.
Twenty years ago, there was still considerable debate regarding the nature of human aging. But scientific consensus is forming around the telomere theory of aging, which says that human aging is the result of cellular aging. Human aging is the result of the aging of the body’s trillions of cells.
Some cells don’t age, however. Sex and stem cells can reproduce indefinitely, without aging, because they create telomerase, which keeps these cells young.
The Telomerase Revolution is the definitive work on the latest science on human aging, covering both the theory and the clinical implications. Dr. Fossel will discuss the upcoming revolution in human medicine.
Dr. Michael Fossel earned both his Ph.D. and MD from Stanford University, where he taught neurobiology and research methods. Winner of a National Science Foundation fellowship, he was a clinical professor of medicine for almost three decades, the executive director of the American Aging Association, and the founding editor of Rejuvenation Research. He wrote the first book on the telomerase theory of aging in 1996 and, in 2004, authored the magisterial academic textbook, Cells, Aging, and Human Disease. In 2011, he coauthored The Immortality Edge, a bestselling discussion of the potential for extending the human lifespan. Dr. Fossel currently teaches The Biology of Aging at Grand Valley State University.
Dr. Fossel is the world’s foremost expert on the clinical use of telomerase for age-related diseases. He has lectured at the National Institutes of Health and the Smithsonian Institute and continues to lecture at universities, institutes, and conferences throughout the world. Dr. Fossel has appeared on Good Morning America, 20/20, Extra, Fox, CNN, BBC, Discovery Channel, and regularly on NPR. He is currently working to bring telomerase to human trials for Alzheimer’s disease.

Hour 3: Renate Reimann, Ph.D.
Practicing life coach, sociologist, and former college professor Renate Reimann, Ph.D., joins the show during the final hour to discuss her book, Beyond Procrastination: How to Stop Postponing Your Life.
Procrastination is a fact of life. We all do it. Sometimes it’s a positive move because we needed a break or simply weren’t ready for the next step. Other times it turns life into a relentless grind or robs us of our dreams.
Twenty percent of Americans are chronic procrastinators, and a study among college students has found that up to 95 percent have problems associated with procrastination. If that isn’t bad enough, research has also found that procrastination can adversely affect heart health.
Renate Reimann, Ph.D., has moved people from stuck to finished for nearly a decade. She’ll share how to live a productive life while leaving the guilt behind. She’ll discuss specific areas of life where people tend to get stuck and talk about why people procrastinate. She’ll also share her three-step method to help get people unstuck and move beyond procrastination.
Reimann is the creator of the Beyond Procrastination Program, which is at the center of her coaching, writing and public speaking. Her varied background in college teaching, cross-cultural training and market research allows her to connect easily with a wide variety of people. Reimann hails from Germany and lives with her partner in New York City.
