Headlined Guests that have appeared on BBS Radio
Change Your Life by Changing Your Home with Celebrity Guest, Krista Watterworth Alterman, Host of HGTV’s highly acclaimed shows “Save My Bath” and “Splurge & Save.”
Krista Watterworth Alterman received her Master in Fine Art from the famous New School in Manhattan, ranked as one of the best fine art programs in America. She furthered her studies at Parsons School of Design, also at The New School and ranked one of the top five design schools in the world . As if her education wasn’t impressive enough, in 2007 as a virtual unknown, Krista went on to star in her own show on HGTV, and the rest is history.
The press has always been drawn to her education but captivated by her on-camera persona – the confident expert who can sell an idea with her assertive charm. New York Daily News writer and friend, Jason Sheftell, calls Krista “a designer who gives a room soul”.
Her marriage to serial entrepreneur Eric Alterman was published in the New York Times Wedding Section (only Carrie Bradshaw knows the importance of such a coup). Although they went on to have two children and re-locate from New York City to South Florida, Krista found time to continue the dream.
The opening of Krista Watterworth Design Studio has set her on the map in Palm Beach County. She was the cover girl for Floridian View magazine, the “Insider” for Luxe Interiors + Design, and the featured artist with a six page showcase of her Florida home in Good Housekeeping. Most recently she had her first international feature in Kitchen Trends.
Krista’s television work continues as she teamed up with Robert Irvine designing restaurants around the country on the Food Network’s Restaurant: Impossible. She joins Rob Van Winkle for the fourth consecutive season on DIY Network’s The Vanilla Ice Project. But she’s most known for her highly acclaimed HGTV shows Save My Bath and Splurge & Save.
Even though Krista’s early career in television began with appearances in multiple national advertising campaigns for brands including Nestle, Mars Inc., and Procter & Gamble, she never imagined she would be a successful designer and on camera personality.

Faith in science: Retired NASA engineer explains why he doesn’t believe the official 9/11 report By Shane Cohn (originally published in VCReporter 09/09/2010 http://www.vcreporter.com/cms/story/detail/faith_in_science/8213/)
It has been said that it requires a very unusual mind to undertake the analysis of the obvious. But is it unusual to want peace? Truth? Dwain Deets doesn’t think so, and the retired NASA director is determined to demonstrate that the official version of the events of 9/11 defies science. His lectures have been gaining popularity, and Deets will be speaking in Ventura to address some troubling questions about 9/11, from the perspective of science.
Deets, a physicist and engineer, was the former director of NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center’s Aerospace project and is currently a member of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. Having retired from a 37-year career, Deets has set out to show that the American public has been duped into the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. His goal is simple. Faith alone cannot end the wars abroad. But perhaps science can.
VCReporter: Of all the indications that the official 9/11 explanation is insufficient, what is the most glaring?
Deets: Building 7 is the most glaring. I think people can realize, after what happened at Building 7, that the public was not told anything close to what went on. I think you actually get kind of the same thing in all three buildings at the World Trade Center. So when I talk about them and the major problems presented, it will be with all buildings in mind.
There are four main points: One, there is no historical precedent with steel-frame, high-rise buildings to have been totally destroyed due to fire. So you got a situation with no precedent, but it happened three times in the same day. These buildings supposedly came down due to fire, officially. Second, there is indisputable evidence that there were extraordinarily high temperatures, in the ground and it persisted for weeks. When I say indisputable evidence, I mean things like satellite imaging photos from NASA. They can measure the temperatures showing how it’s persisting weeks after the event. And there are eyewitnesses of molten metal and things that would require extremely high temperatures. There are a number of different elements that have been analyzed chemically afterwards, and it can only be explained due to extremely high temperature. There are a lot of tiny spheres. We refer to them as microspheres, and they are iron-rich. To be a sphere, they had to have been liquid, even to the point of maybe vaporizing because that is the way it would form into a sphere. The surface tension, as it cooled down, it would do so in a spherical shape. So that’s hard evidence that there had to be extremely high temperatures.
VCReporter: When you refer to high temperature, are you suggesting there were explosives involved?
Deets: What I’m saying is, the temperatures are so high that the ordinary office fires and aviation fuel fires can’t come close to explaining those high temperatures. The third point is, there has been evidence of high-tech, and I can’t say they’re explosives, but they are nano-thermite. Nano meaning they’re extremely small and had to be manufactured with very sophisticated equipment and knowledge, which we only know about in government laboratories. But it was highly sophisticated, and how exactly it is designed, it could be very explosive, or something used in a different way. We use the term pyrotechnic to describe that category. So it was used as an explosive or pyrotechnic. But either way, the key thing is it provides an explanation why the temperatures were so high and persisted for so long afterwards. So it fits together with that set of findings in a very consistent way. The fourth major thing is, all three buildings came down at freefall, gravitational freefall, or very close to it.
The only way that can happen is if the lower structure was abruptly removed to allow the top part to fall into freefall. This fits into the other things I talk about. There were several varieties of explosives. And the ones that we found are just one of those, and not necessarily the one that did most of the damage. We just don’t know that kind of thing. When I say we, there was an international team of scientists and chemists that studied the dust from the WTC and reported in the open literature, so it’s there and there has not been any counterpublication to say this is not true.
VCReporter: In regard to Building 7, is it not possible that the debris from the previously collapsed main towers had initiated the fires that damaged the bottom eight floors to the point of collapse causing the free-fall?
Deets: There is no evidence that there were fires for the initial time period. There could be that there were. But there have not been any photographs released to the public. About 100 minutes is the first indication that there were any fires, and even then it was not on the floors where supposedly the fire damage caused the buildings to come down. That would be several hours later. Let’s say you were taking this to [a] court of law; you wouldn’t have a chain of evidence that led from the debris to the fires.
The other piece of evidence is whether the fires, especially that kind of office fire, can lead to compromising the steel structure and causing the whole thing to come crashing down. So you go back to saying there is no precedent in the history of high-rise steel structures that fires lead to the building coming down. Some of those fires have historically lasted up to 18 hours and still didn’t compromise the structure. So it’s unreasonable to think that if the fires did start from the debris it would lead to the buildings coming down. The other part is that it came down in pure free fall for what is equivalent to eight stories’ worth of free fall
VCReporter: Why do you think the government has never officially addressed the collapse of Building 7?
Deets: I think it causes a severe problem for them in explaining what happened. At first you have to talk about the great length of time that the government agency that was supposed to investigate Building 7, which was NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology.) They stalled up until November 2008 before they issued their final report. That is seven years to come up with a final report. Clearly, it was a problem to them. Either they couldn’t explain it or they could, but didn’t want to. They didn’t want to give the explanation that the evidence pointed to, which I think is the case.
VCReporter: Didn’t they also deny a request from engineers into the report about how Building 7 came down, citing a “concern for public safety”?
Deets: They did. In this case, this is a freedom-of-information request asking for details of their computer model. They said they had a very sophisticated computer model that modeled the structure, the fires, and based on that, they said this is the explanation, that fires caused the whole thing. For professional engineers to request that information through the law of the Freedom of Information Act, to provide that information, they have resisted it to this day. So anyway they are using this argument that revealing this sophisticated model could or might endanger public safety is very hard to justify, particularly when it’s professional engineers wanting to understand what caused the building to come down.
That in itself should be an effort in the interest of safety. In each of these four cases I brought up, if you look at what NIST has done, they have basically denied that these issues exist. Regarding hot temperatures, they come out and say we have no evidence of either high temperatures or that anybody saw it, even though there are testimonies from responders. They are just stonewalling all the way.
VCReporter: But they did admit, however, that the building collapsed at free fall. Shouldn’t that be evidence in itself?
Deets: Yes, they did admit that. But the thing is, they didn’t change any of their conclusions.
VCReporter: Why? Do you believe this is some sort of plan to engage our country into wars with Iraq and Afghanistan?
Deets: Well, I certainly think that we, as prudent members of the public, should consider it was highly likely, and it’s based on a record that our government has done that in a number of cases. Most recently, it did it to escalate the war in Vietnam. The Gulf of Tonkin incident turned out to not be an incident, and that has become publicly known because documents concerning that have been declassified but not publicized by the media. There is certainly a pattern. If you just put together the fact that all this happened on 9/11 and then we go to war. It fits a pattern and you have to wonder about that.
VCReporter: Let’s assume you are right. What is your political agenda? What do you want the public to do?
Deets: I want the public to demand of their representatives to investigate this, to stop stonewalling and investigate this to wherever it leads. I think that will be healthy for the country. It will be difficult to go through that, but it will force politicians to be more careful about doing things, because they will realize they won’t be able to get away with it. I think it will be good for the country. I think it will end the war. A large segment of the population believes we should be in Iraq and Afghanistan because of 9/11, but I think that would change.
VCReporter: Why do you think the vast majority of the public has accepted the findings?
Deets: The big media plays such a big role. The mainstream media, and I don’t know how this works, but they haven’t allowed any questioning of 9/11. A lot of the questions about what went on get marginalized and called conspiracies.

ABOUT Shrouded in Mist: Physics and the Archaic Symbology of Metaphysics by Peter O'Lalor
To demystify millennia of science, philosophy, and religion is no easy task. During archaic times and the thousands of years of wisdom; acquired by the priests of Egypt for example, there was no reference to science or philosophy--it wasn't even religion, per se.The nature of existence or of truth and knowledge was not merely the true belief, of ancient Greek philosophy.
As civilization moved westward, through the Mediterranean, Europe, and across the Atlantic; the nature of existence or of truth and knowledge, was and still remains in constant and often volatile conflict. It seems the world has settled on believing but understanding where it all came from, remains shrouded in the mists of time.Presented in Shrouded in Mist is one poet's attempt to reconcile the faith and wisdom, between science and religion.

BIOGRAPHY FROM: http://hippocratesinst.org/Employees/Dr.-Brian-Clement
A typical American growing up in the New Jersey/New York area, Brian likes to joke that he was a pioneer in the field of obesity—he was fat even before many Americans were fat! Raised in an Irish household on the standard American diet of meat, processed foods and sugary sodas, he was unfit and gasping for air every few steps. When he was 20 years old, he was dating a girl whose best friend’s boyfriend was 30—and a vegetarian. Despite the fact he had been more or less educated by his family that the body would die without animal-based foods, the lure of an influential peer inspired him to give up meat in one fell swoop. For the first year and a half, he kept his vegetarian diet a secret from his family. Yet after losing 120 pounds and experiencing the difference in his health, he came out of the proverbial closet (much to his family’s dismay!) and became a complete vegan three years later.
A natural performer, Brian had worked his way through college as a musician. Many friends, including one who shared his interest in nutrition after healing herself from cancer through diet, offered feedback that he was born to teach. With his degree in biochemistry in hand and his interest in nutrition sealed, Brian began doing just that.
It was during this time he was living in Southern Oregon where temperatures are hot, dry and sunny from May through September. His body naturally gravitated towards raw foods and, after a few months, he remembered the book “Be Your Own Doctor” by Ann Wigmore. He dug it out, read it again, and realized he had essentially become a raw vegan by default. With the intention of returning to Oregon to open a health institute, Brian moved to Maine for a final taste of the East Coast. While there, he decided to go down to Boston to visit Ann Wigmore at the Hippocrates Health Institute. As his friend had years prior, Ann saw Brian’s natural talent to communicate this lifestyle to people in a relatable way, and she convinced him to move to Boston and work with her.
On behalf of Hippocrates, Brian soon went to Europe and spent three years re-educating Europeans about the raw food movement that had begun on their continent. In 1978, he spent a year in Denmark as Director of the Humlegaarden Institute that had been founded by the famous Danish raw-food pioneer Dr. Kristine Nolfi in the 1940s. Upon his return to the U.S. in 1980, Brian assumed the title of Director of Hippocrates Health Institute and, in 1987, he moved the Institute to Florida.
Since that time, he has directed the Institute’s growth and development, as well as facilitated the implementation of progressive natural health treatments and programs. Brian’s progressive ideas on natural health, coupled with his vast theoretical and practical science experience, have provided him with the opportunity to conduct countless seminars, lectures and educational programs. He has traveled to more than 25 countries motivating the public to take action to improve their lives. Most recently, he was commissioned by government-supported organizations to establish, organize and direct health programs in Denmark, Switzerland, Greece and India.
Brian has also written numerous books in which he explores the various aspects of health, spirituality and natural healing. His best-selling book, “Living Foods for Optimum Health,” has been acclaimed by Marilyn Diamond, co-author of the book “Fit for Life,” as “an important and eminently readable book for the new era of self-care,” and by Coretta Scott King as a “landmark guide to the essentials of healthy living.”
Entertainers and Celebrities are always in the public eye and constantly on our minds. Whether it is because they are acting in something on TV or Film, or acting up in their personal lives, it is on the news, in magazine, and all over the Internet for all the world to see, judge, comment, etc. Yet, the Entertainers and Celebrities are people too. Have we ever stopped to ask, what is their real story? How do they see the world and people?
Tonight’s guest is a man who has worked in the Entertainment Industry for over a half a century, and who has worked in so many of fields of it, with so many well known stars. He has appeared in Prime Time Television Shows, Big Budget Films, and Commercials, acted on Broadway, sung at the Met, Produced over 1,000 TV Commercials, and Produced and Directed over Fifty TV shows, and is still doing it.
Hear the story of a news maker and star maker himself, Ben Bryant.
Ben Bryant – Bio
I have been in the production business since my college days. Until 1972 I was a successful actor and singer in theatre, film, the Metropolitan Opera and TV.
In ’70, seeking to exercise my burgeoning interest in film production, I joined the award winning Group One Productions of Hollywood. I quickly developed production skills on a multitude of projects ranging from two-man second-unit shoots to Carole King’s 1974 Central Park concert (12 cameras and a union crew of over 100.)
Until the early ‘90s I worked in film and TV as a producer and first Assistant Director. Based in New York, I’ve served in one or more of those capacities on over 1,000 commercials and dozens of corporate films for clients including ABC-TV, AT&T, Exxon, Ford, GM, IBM, MacDonald’s, Miller Beer, Porsche-Audi, Proctor & Gamble, and Volkswagen. This work was done in more than half the fifty states, Jamaica and Canada. I’ve also worked as production manager or first AD on five theatrical and TV movies.
After years of supporting directors I decided to apply the skills learned from some of the best and, in ’89, began producing and directing a TV show, Love is the Power. Since then I’ve been working solely in video, producing and directing approximately 70 multi-camera TV shows and over 50 live concerts and documentaries. I now take many projects from concept through completion; often writing, producing, directing, shooting and editing.
A member of the Directors’ Guild of America since ’79, I hold a B.A. In theatre and music from Whittier College.
In 2011, inspired by nothing more than idle time, I began what I thought was a short essay on my childhood in Tennessee. I became so engaged in my memories that the next thing I knew it was two weeks later and I had written twenty-five or thirty pages. I realized that I was beginning to write an autobiography.
Three Stages, book one of this memoir, is the story of my first thirty-seven years – from a small Tennessee town to Hollywood and New York. It comprises my adventures at Hollywood High, Whittier College (where I played football under future NFL greats, George Allen and Don Coryell), in the USAF then as an actor and singer.
The book is filled with stories about the bizarre and funny incidents that happened both on and off stage during my fifteen years as a successful working actor and of the great and not-so-great stars I worked with.
During my next twenty years as a producer and AD (First Assistant Director) I often found myself in social situations – both with fellow film professionals and “civilians” – recounting bizarre or otherwise interesting and funny tales of my adventures in production. At least a dozen times someone said, “You should write a book.” I often joked that, due to the nature of my work, should I ever create such a tome it would be titled Circumstances Beyond My Control. Having finished Three Stages, the obvious next step was this volume.
This book comprises the often hilarious, sometimes exciting series of stories about my adventures in the challenging world of film production. These tales will take you on a stimulating journey that will include an amazing variety of film assignments and locations throughout the US and Jamaica.
I’m currently (September 2014) almost finished with the third and last book, Waiting for Elizabeth which picks up my story at age 55 during a rocky personal and professional period as I migrated from producing to becoming a video director and editor.

He was soon called to teach others the tools from Vedic wisdom which had transformed him. He has expanded the breath of his teachings, though training in Vinyasa, Forest, Wall, Yin, children’s Kundalini, Embodyoga, and Thai yoga massage at the Old Medicine Hospital in Chaing Mai, Thailand.
In 2010 James met Mata Amritanandamayi, also known as Amma (Mother), and two years later spent time at her ashram in India. There he received his mantra and formal meditation training. In 2011 he took refuge in the 5 Mindfulness Precepts with Zen Master and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh. The lives and teachings of Jesus the Christ, Paramahansa Yogananda, Eckhart Tolle, Mahatma Gandhi, Byron Katie, and Ramana Maharshi have also philosophically, practically, and spiritually guided and molded James’ evolving practice.
James creates an environment that empowers students to stay in their integrity and trust their intuition. His classes are dynamic, yet mindful and grounding. With focus on connected movement and breath awareness, he encourages students to physically and emotionally play, explore, work, and heal on a personal level. He supports students as they face fears, overcome challenges, and leave their all on the mat.
Along with teaching group classes and private practices, James offers workshops at studios and festivals all over California with emphasis on yoga philosophy. His yin yoga teacher trainings explore energy work, and meditation practices and are influenced by his work with the Tao te Ching, Paul & Suzee Grilley, and Sarah Powers.
Whether he is traveling, dancing, reading, or absorbed in Nature, James says, “it’s all yoga”. He considers himself to be a constant student, in which he aspires to experience life wholeheartedly, and he encourages students to do the same.
He also creates spiritual and metaphysical music festivals, designed to transform the participant through direct experience. This coming October 3 - 6, 2014 in Sacramento, CA, he is creating a celebration of spirit aptly named, the Transcendence Festival.

Laurie Cornell first became interested in spirituality in 1996 with a native drum making course and sweat lodge and continued to follow that tradition as a Sundancer for nine years. Laurie studied Reiki, NLP, Huna, Timeline Therapy and Hypnosis. During the last year of study at NL Palmer Laurie decided that she needed to expand her studies to the body. She then mastered Neurolink from New Zealand which uses points in the body to correct anything out of alignment and in dysfunction as well as clear viruses and bacteria. Laurie continued her studies with EnerChi and Lomilomi – the latter with Dane Silva in Hilo, Hawaii. She has been a tattoo artist for 20 years a profession that has allowed her to meet people from all over the globe and from every walk of life.
Laurie has been practicing healing and massage since 2000, working with the Angels, Arch Angels, Ascended Masters and other beings of light – along with prayer and the Higher Self. She taught Drunvalo Melchizedek's Awakening the Illuminated Heart for 3 years and is now focused on going back to the feminine way of EnerChi Quest that she learned in 2001. This new workshop is Sacred Heart Creations and as with her other workshop begins with a day of learning how to clear emotions with Akashic Emotional Clearing. This clearing removes emotions from root source all the way up to present quickly and easily. Laurie has been doing this work since the 1990's and loves the deep transformation it creates instantly. Laurie teach this work for the simple reason it is a huge assistance in helping students get into their Sacred Space of the Heart and make huge transformations in their personal lives.
