Thomas S. Harbin, M.D., Author, Medical Practices Researcher, Opthalmologist and Clinical Professor
Guest Occupation: Author, Medical Practices Researcher, Opthalmologist, Clinical Professor
Guest Biography:

Tom Harbin MD received his medical degree from Cornell Medical School, trained in ophthalmology at the Wilmer Institute of Johns Hopkins and has been practicing ophthalmology, with a specialty in glaucoma, for over thirty years. In his book, WAKING UP BLIND: Lawsuits Over Eye Surgery, Dr. Harbin exposes a breach of trust that took place in an area where least expected and at a well-respected medical center in Atlanta. This story sheds light on the game of big business where the bottom dollar became more important than human life.

In the early 80's, physicians began to notice problems with the gifted and powerful chairman of Emory University's Department of Ophthalmology. His patients complained of long waits and hurried exams, his bills to Medicare and other insurance carriers became suspect, and tissue removed from patients' eyes showed no sign of the disease that had been diagnosed. Because the chairman was increasing the university's prestige and profits, the university leaders paid little heed to the growing concerns of the other professors and fellows. After the chairman operated on the wrong eye of a patient, who eventually went blind from an easily detected and treatable problem, a departmental committee began an investigation and found other examples of patients' eyes harmed by neglect, improper billing and many other problems. Lawsuits and complaints by two faculty whistleblowers prompted another investigation, this time by the medical school's ethics committee, but the chairman was exonerated and the whistleblowers were reprimanded. Only after a national specialty society ethics investigation and more lawsuits was the chairman forced to resign.

Dr. Harbin provides the authoritative account backed by court documents, official transcripts, letters and personal interviews, in exposing this story.

Few people have the moral courage to speak out against misconducts performed by their superiors who have administrative and financial power over them; and when institutions financially benefit by suppressing corrective action, it takes individuals with superhuman courage to take a stand. These individuals, known as whistleblowers, must deal with the repercussions of these actions. Harbin exposes a problem that occurs not only in universities, but also in corporations, governments, churches, and every kind of organization. This book is a wake-up call to remind us that the people we look up to may not always be looking out for our best interests.

Dr. Harbin is a Board Certified Ophthalmologist specializing in glaucoma and related diseases. His undergraduate degree is from Vanderbilt University and his medical school degree is from Cornell University. He completed residency training at the Wilmer Eye Institute of Johns Hopkins and his fellowship training at Washington University. Dr. Harbin joined Eye Consultants of Atlanta in 1975 and practices at the Cumberland location.

Imagine trusting a doctor – with the best reputation for treating eye disease in the state – to do surgery on your eyes.  Now imagine the worst of outcomes.  Blindness in an eye that you learn, in fact, never needed surgery.  And the medical center where you were treated is ignoring the problem. Waking Up Blind is a story of how an eye surgeon – respected and admired – became the cause of an array of medical problems for his patients. Waking Up Blind is a story of how one of the nation’s premiere medical centers tried to conceal the growing medical scandal.

Author of Waking up Blind, Dr. Tom Harbin, exposes the lawsuits that tell the story of this medical scandal from the very beginning.  Using court documents, tape recorded conversations, interviews and personal observation:  Dr. Tom Harbin will unveil an inside view of the medical world that will shock the reader with its candid exploration of the dark side of medicine.

You're a doctor and you know a lot about medicine. But do you know a lot about the real world? Doctors learn a lot in medical school, but not enough. Only rarely will a course teach practical, useful, or pragmatic information to help with the myriad decisions that arise in day-to-day life. Dr. Harbin wrote The Student Doctor Network What Every Doctor Should Know... But Was Never Taught in Medical School to fill the gap: to help doctors deal with the business aspects of medicine, help doctors in training learn how to evaluate opportunities for the future, and assist practicing doctors in dealing with the questions arising day-to-day and when planning for the future.

Dr. Tom Harbin received his MD from Cornell Medical and trained in ophthalmology at the Wilmer Institute of Johns Hopkins.  He has been practicing ophthalmology with a specialty in glaucoma for over thirty years and is a Clinical Professor Emeritus at Emory University. Dr. Harbin resides with his wife in Atlanta, GA.

Waking Up Blind: Lawsuits Over Eye Surgery is his first book and is on the Amazon.com's Bestseller List. Dr. Harbin's second book is The Student Doctor Network What Every Doctor Should Know... But Was Never Taught in Medical School. Both books are hot sellers and are climbing the sales charts on Amazon!

Count Alexandre Bothuri Bàthory is a descendant of the Royal Bàthorys who ruled Transylvannia and Hungary in the Middle Ages and were ranking members of the Imperial and Royal Dragon Court and Order founded by the Holy Roman Emperor Sigismund. Alexandre is an art collector and author. His new novel is entitled She Messiah.

Alexandre de Bothuri Bathory is a direct descendant of the noble Bathorys who were the rulers of Transylvania and members of the Imperial and Royal Dragon Court of the Holy Roman Emperor Sigismund.

Alexandre was born at la Faisanderie in Chatou (Le Vésinet) France in 1954 to a prominent noble family (Hungarian and Italian descent) who are known in history as Important Art collectors and patrons, Museum and University founders, as well as Archaeologists and Landowners in Burgundy, France, Hungary, Poland, Tuscany, Russia and Greece. At one point they owned the most important collection of Thrace Gold artefacts discovered on their domains, which was confiscated after WWII and never recovered.

After graduating from Saint-Cyr and Stanislas College in 1969, he followed the steps of his physician grandfather and entered Medical School in Paris but also attended Art and History classes at the Sorbonne and at the Ecole du Louvre under the guidance of scholar Madeleine Ours and with his friend Caroline Kennedy, President Kennedy's daughter, and later Queen Farida of Egypt. During those years he developed then a special bond with Queen Farida of Egypt, President Leopold Senghor from Senegal, Richard Nixon, Mr and Mrs. Ronald Reagan, the future US President and first Lady, former King and Queen Michael of Romania, the Giscard d'Estaing, President and Madame Georges Pompidou, President Charles de Gaulle  (a visitor at the family castle near Bourges during Alexandre's childhood), Princess Sybille de Bourbon-Parma, the Royal Family of Yugoslavia, Prince Orlov, and the late Princess Grace of Monaco who shared the same passion for painting, poetry and humanitarian causes.

Guest Occupation: Musician, Composer, Live Studio Sound Engineer, Bass Player, Guitar Player, Singer, Spiritual Teacher, Psychic, Channeler, Speaker, Healer of Vibrational Medicine, Author
Guest Biography:

Author and composer, Keith Blanchard, was born on November 30, 1963, in Houma, Louisiana, and had a typical middle class Catholic upbringing. In his early teens, he often entertained himself by pondering the big questions about God and the universe. Little did he know that the day would come when those questions would form the spiritual foundation upon which he would build the rest of his life.

In his late twenties, Keith went through a crisis that stripped him of everything he held dear and left him with no choice but to turn inward for answers. This he did, but the peace and stability he so wanted still eluded him.

When he was thirty-two, celestial beings began to appear to him, sharing glimpses of his future and the world's. Not only did they enlighten and guide him, they instructed him to pass their message on to others so that they, too, could learn a higher way of living.

Now in his forties and living a peaceful, stable life as a father, professional musician, and spiritual seeker, Keith continues to pursue his passion to both learn and teach about Truth.

Dr. Stoyan Sarg, Engineer, Doctor in Physics, Space Researcher, Scientist, Writer, Experimentalist, Gravity Control Theorist and Author
Guest Occupation: Engineer, Doctor in Physics, Space Researcher, Scientist, Writer, Experimentalist, Gravity Control Theorist, Author
Guest Biography:

Dr. Stoyan Sarg - Sargoytchev is a Bulgarian born Canadian. He holds engineering diploma and PhD in Physics in the field of space research. From 1976 to 1990 he was involved in space projects sponsored by the program Intercosmos coordinated by the former Soviet Union. He participated also a collaborative project with the European Space Agency. For his pioneering work he was rewarded with medals from Intercosmos, Russia and Bulgaria. In 1990 he was invited as a visiting scientist by Cornel University and worked in Arecibo Observatory, P.R. on a Lidar project funded by the NSF (USA). This was the place where the first SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) program was operated before 1985 using the world largest radio telescope - radar. In 1991 he immigrated to Canada, where he worked on projects coordinated by the Canadian Space Agency. Since 2002 he is with the York University, Toronto, Canada. He has over 50 publications in peer review journals and a few patents related to space research.

During his 30-year work in space research Dr. Sarg was aware about some aerial phenomena that are unsolved mysteries for contemporary physics. After extensive study the history of physics and reviewing thousand of articles in different fields of physics he realized that there is a problem in the current understanding of space. Working extensively on this issue he arrived to a challenging new idea about the space-time, matter and gravitation. For a few years of intensive but morally awarded work he was able to develop and publish in 2001 his treatise "Basic Structures of Matter - Supergravitation Unified Theory" (BSM-SG). Dr. Sarg wrote three books in English and one in Bulgarian language. A book review of his theoretical monograph was published in Physics in Canada journal, v. 62, No. 4, p. 206-207, (2006). His work provided for a first time the missing physical relation between the EM field and gravity. This permitted him to analyze the enigmatic UFO phenomenon from a new physical point of view. One of the major predictions of the BSM-SG theory is the possibility to change the gravitational and inertial mass of a specifically design spacecraft. Being also experimentalist Dr. Sarg discovered an unique gravito-inertial effect by a laboratory experiments. This discovery, understandable only from the BSM-SG point of view, was reported at the Annual meetings of the Society for Scientific Explorations in 2007 and 2008 in Boulder, Colorado and also at the Annual meeting of the Natural Philosophy Alliance, 2010, Long Beach, California. His recent book is titled "Field Propulsion by Control of Gravity - Theory and Experiments" (Amazon.com). The described propulsion mechanism is completely different from the jet propulsion. It is invoked by EM activated plasma and does not need combustion or jet. The publications and experiments of Dr. Sarg are widely discussed in Internet. He believes that his discovery will contribute to the further advances in interplanetary and deep space travels.

Swami Kriyananda (J. Donald Walters), Author, Composer, Speaker, Playwright, Artist, Spiritual Teacher, Disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda, Superconsciousness Researcher and Meditation Expert
Guest Occupation: Author, Composer, Speaker, Playwright, Artist, Spiritual Teacher, Disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda, Superconsciousness Researcher, Meditation Expert
Guest Biography:

Swami Kriyananda is one of the world's foremost experts on meditation, yoga, and spiritual practice. He has authored more than 140 books and composed over 400 pieces of music. Kriyananda is a member of the Club of Budapest, where he serves along with the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Mikhail Gorbachev, Elie Wiesel, Jane Goodall, Peter Gabriel, and other leaders of the planetary evolution of consciousness.

A prolific and internationally regarded author, speaker, accomplished composer, playwright, artist, and world-renowned spiritual teacher, Swami Kriyananda refers to himself simply as "a humble disciple" of the great spiritual leader Paramhansa Yogananda.

Our audience will have a rare and unique opportunity to bask in the wisdom of a revered spiritual leader seldom accessible to the public. Swami Kriyananda is the last still-teaching direct disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda--world famous spiritual leader and author of Autobiography of a Yogi.

Swami Kriyananda will expound on the teachings of Yogananda.

"There are times when a human being, though perhaps not remarkable in himself, encounters some extraordinary person or event that infuses his life with great meaning, " recalls Kriyananda. "My own life was blessed with such an encounter in 1948. I met a great, God-known master whose constant vision was of eternity. His name was Paramhansa Yogananda. He was from India, though it would be truer to say that his home was the whole world."

For the last four years of Yogananda's life, the young disciple absorbed his guru's teachings and wisdom, and committed his life to furthering the Master's vision and message. Yogananda appointed him as head of the monastery, authorized him to teach in his name and to give initiation into Kriya Yoga, and entrusted him with the tasks of writing and developing what he called "world brotherhood colonies."

And for the last 60 years, Kriyananda has done just that.

Kriyananda's books and audios have sold more than 3.5 million copies worldwide and have been translated into 28 languages. He is the author of more than 140 books on a variety of topics, including leadership, education, creativity, and moral values. His bestselling titles include Awaken to Superconsciousness, God is for Everyone, Conversations with Yogananda, Meditation for Starters, The Art of Supportive Leadership, The New Path " My Life with Paramhansa Yogananda, Money Magnetism, The Essence of Self-Realization, Affirmations for Self-Healing, Education for Life, and his bestselling Secrets gift books. He has written extensive commentaries on the Bible and the Bhagavad Gita.

Cindy Corrie, Co-Founder, President of the Rachel Corrie Foundation for Peace and Justice, Human Rights Activist and World Peace Activist
Guest Occupation: Co-Founder, President of the Rachel Corrie Foundation for Peace and Justice, Human Rights Activist, World Peace Activist
Guest Biography:

Cindy Corrie, Co-Founder, President, Board Director for the Rachel Corrie Foundation for Peace & Justice.

Rachel Aliene Corrie was an American member of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM). She was crushed to death in the Gaza Strip by an Israel Defence Forces (IDF) bulldozer when she was kneeling in front of a local Palestinian's home, thus acting as a human shield, attempting to prevent IDF forces from demolishing the home. The IDF stated that the death was due to the restricted angle of view of the IDF Caterpillar D9 bulldozer driver, while ISM eyewitnesses said "there was nothing to obscure the driver's view."

The day after Rachel's death, in a phone conversation Ariel Sharon promised President Bush a thorough, transparent and credible investigation of her death which Rachel's parents - Craig and Cindy felt never happened.

Craig and Cindy founded the Rachel Corrie Foundation in their daughter's memory as well as an attempt to bring attention to the injustice of her death and the cause for which she died - the human rights of the people of Palestine.

Still seeking justice, in 2010, the Corrie's brought a lawsuit against Israel regarding their daughter's death which is now on hold because of an Israeli lawyers' strike. But they continue to seek justice. As Craig put it: "The lawsuit has already in part succeeded in bringing attention to the sacrifice of our daughter."

The Rachel Corrie Foundation for Peace & Justice is a grassroots, 501(c)3 non-profit organization that conducts and supports programs that foster connections between people, that build understanding, respect, and appreciation for differences, and that promote cooperation within and between local and global communities. The foundation encourages and supports grassroots efforts in pursuit of human rights and social, economic, and environmental justice, which we view as pre-requisites for world peace. Continuing the work begun and envisioned by our daughter, Rachel Corrie, our initial emphasis has been on Israel/Palestine.
