Guest Biography:

Dr. Furlich produces research with the goal of understanding human behaviors. In particular, he focuses on the analysis and comprehension of communication behaviors both personally and professionally. Two particular areas are those communication behaviors that often go unnoticed and those communication behaviors that people can intentionally communicate to achieve their goals. His work heavily emphasizes the benefit of applying academic research: it is not enough to only learn about communication. Developing nonverbal communication skills to communicate more effectively is vital. His most recent research interest is exploring the role of biology and communication. His perspective is that only focusing on social influences limits understanding. One's biology influences their communication and their communication influences their biological reactions.

Dr. Furlich has published two books, both of which were Amazon #1 bestsellers in their respective categories. Additionally, he has presented his research on national television, national radio and national podcasts. In his free time, he enjoys working out, watching sports, traveling and reading to learn more about human behaviors, spirituality and Christianity.

Guest Occupation: M.D., FACC, is a medical and sports cardiologist
Guest Biography:

Eli Friedman, M.D., FACC, is a medical and sports cardiologist at Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute, a part of Baptist Health South Florida. Dr. Friedman serves as the Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute’s medical director of sports cardiology. Dr. Friedman joined Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute from Memorial Health System. There, he served as the chief of cardiac services at Memorial Regional Hospital and the system’s medical director of sports cardiology. Dr. Friedman is the cardiologist for the Women’s Tennis Association, team cardiologist for the Florida Panthers of the National Hockey League, Inter Miami CF of Major League Soccer, and for numerous local colleges and universities. He serves as a cardiology consultant to the United States Tennis Association's Sports Science Committee and is an advisory sports cardiologist for the Broward County Public Schools Sports Medicine & Student Wellness Committee. Since 2018, he has helped develop the Heart of a Champion program which teaches trainees – including coaches, student-athletes and athletic administrators – how to recognize and respond to cardiac arrest in a sports setting. His research has been published in the Journal of Emergency Medical Services and Congestive Heart Failure. He has also co-authored educational content for the American College of Cardiology. Dr. Friedman’s approach to patient care is to spend as much time – if not more – listening to his patients than talking. By doing so, he can incorporate each person’s beliefs, opinions and thoughts into a treatment plan instead of a “one-size-fits-all” approach. He believes it is everyone’s right to feel as good as possible. He considers it is his job to do everything he can to help by using the skills he’s been privileged to learn. When he is not treating patients, Dr. Friedman enjoys spending time with his family, running, cycling and training.

The movie is particularly special for Emmanuelle as she gets to combine her love of acting with her love for horses.  Kavan Smith (When Calls the Heart, You Had Me at Aloha) co-stars. Besides Kavan Smith and Emmanuelle Vaguer, this drama also stars Lochlyn Munro. These movies are based on the Linda Lael Miller novels. Peter Benson is back, directing this sequel. 

Tara (Emmanuelle Vaugier), now settled in Montana and dating Cowboy Boone (Kavan Smith), works to bring their family lives together but tensions arise, as blending their families will be more of a challenge than anticipated.

Emmanuelle may be best known for her popular role as Charlie Sheen’s ex-fiancée Mia in the award-winning CBS comedy Two and a Half Men. For three seasons she also played Detective Jessica Angell on CSI: NY, leaving fans devastated when her role came to an end. 

For five seasons Emmanuelle was the vain and dangerously sociopathic character of the Morrigan on the innovative series Lost Girl. Emmanuelle was cast alongside Piper Perabo in the USA Network crime series Covert Affairs, where she played Liza Hearn, a journalist and blogger not afraid to push boundaries. She was also on the AT&T original series Rogue as Assistant District Attorney Regan Faulker alongside Cole Hauser (Yellowstone).

Other television appearances include her portrayal of Jane in the two-hour pilot of the adaptation of the comic Painkiller Jane, and a starring role in The CW comedy My Guide to Becoming a Rockstar.

(which earned her a Leo Award) opposite Carrie Fisher, and Absolute Deception alongside Cuba Gooding Jr., to name a few. Emmanuelle is adding voice-over actor to her list of projects as well, with many fans remembering her portrayal of the character Nikki in Need for Speed Carbon EA’s #1-grossing video game worldwide.  

Emmanuelle’s inner and outer beauty shines through as she is among the select group of women to be featured on ‘Maxim‘s Top 100’ list twice. She was also named fifth on Femme Fatal magazine’s 50 Sexiest Women on the Planet’, and was named ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’ for the sixth time by Smartasses Magazine.

Guest Occupation: Business Journalist, Analyst
Guest Biography:

Kenneth Rapoza is a seasoned, veteran business journalist with more than 20 years of experience reporting locally for The Boston Globe, and stationed abroad as a staff reporter for The Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones News in Sao Paulo where he won awards for his work.

Since 2011, upon his return to the United States, Ken has covered trade, big business and investing in Brazil, Russia, India and China for Forbes as a senior contributor.  He has traveled throughout all of the countries he covers and has seen first hand China’s impressive growth and its ghost towns as recent as 2017.

His editorial work has appeared in diverse publications like USA Today — where he was given the unflattering task of taking an opposing view in support of China tariffs at the start of the trade war — and in liberal, advocacy media like In These Times.

All told, he has either written for, or has been written about, in The Nation and Salon in the dot-com years, and almost broke the Argentine internet after a story about the return of the International Monetary Fund before the government opened up about it.

Having grown up near the depressed mill towns of Massachusetts, manufacturing as a bulwark of household income and economic sustainability is not merely an intellectual pursuit, but a deeply personal one, as well. He experienced the life-altering impact government policy has on manufacturing labor in his own family back in the 1990s. He considers himself an American “lao baixing.” He graduated from Antioch College in Yellow Springs, OH in his late 20s.

Ken now lives and works from a small farm and beach town in Southern Massachusetts with his family.
