Dr. Andrea Rosanoff, Researcher, Scientist, Chemical Specialist, Information Analyst, Scholar, Expert in Nutritional Magnesium, Author
Guest Occupation: Researcher, Scientist, Chemical Specialist, Information Analyst, Scholar, Expert in Nutritional Magnesium, Author
Guest Biography:

Andrea Rosanoff, Ph.D. is Director of Research & Science Information Outreach for the Center.

In 1982, Andrea Rosanoff received her Ph.D. degree in Nutrition from the University of California at Berkeley. 

In 1985, Dr. Andrea Rosanoff was invited to give a short commentary upon an environmental technology proposal that included magnesium.  To prepare, she went to the library to learn what she could about magnesium and was surprised to find research that linked nutritional magnesium both clinically and in population studies to heart disease -- the largest killer in her country, the United States.  These were links she had not learned about during her graduate education which specialized in the nutritional minerals.  Her interest piqued, Dr. Rosanoff kept reading about magnesium every chance she got at her jobs as Senior Chemical Information Specialist at Dialog Information Services and as Information Analyst at Chevron Research & Technology Corporation.  At both jobs she became adept at online searching of the peer reviewed scientific literature, a skill which serves her well today as an Independent Scholar  with expertise in Nutritional Magnesium.

By the late 1990’s, Dr. Rosanoff ‘s “hobby” evolved into co-authorship  with Dr. Mildred Seelig in the writing of “The Magnesium Factor”, a book on magnesium and heart disease, and from there to original research and publication in scientific journals.   In 2005, Dr. Rosanoff formed the Center for Magnesium Education & Research, LLC.  The center conducts research into all aspects of nutritional magnesium and attempts to inform the world of their findings.

Michael Joseph Farrell was born on February 6, 1939 in St. Paul, Minnesota. At the age of 2 a move to Hollywood, where his father's work as a studio carpenter provided young Mike's first glimpse of the world behind the studio walls, began his fascination with the "movies, one he has never fully lost.

After graduating from Hollywood High and a hitch in the Marines, he worked a number of jobs - including a stint as private investigator - while pursuing a career as an actor, beginning with small parts in films like "The Graduate" and "The Americanization of Emily".

Stage roles and small parts on TV eventually landed him in the soap "Days of Our Lives", where he starred as Scott Banning for two years. "Days" was followed by leading roles in two series, "The Interns" and "The Man and The City," then a four-year contract with Universal Pictures.

Mike is best known for playing Captain B.J. Hunnicutt in the ever popular series M*A*S*H. His eight years with the memorable show allowed the opportunity to both write and direct several episodes, earning him nominations for Director's Guild and Emmy Awards.

His first production experience outside of ""M*A*S*H was the CBS-TV film "Memorial Day", in which he starred opposite Shelley Fabares.

On the documentary front, among many others, Farrell co-hosted "Saving the Wildlife" for PBS, hosted "The Best of the National Geographic Specials" and had a great adventure scuba diving with his children, Michael and Erin, among hundreds of sharks in French Polynesia for "The World of Audubon".

On December 31, 1984 Mike married actress Shelley Fabares (star of ABC-TVs "Coach")

Just Call Me Mike: A Journey to Actor and Activist

by Mike Farrell

From its opening pages, Mike Farrell’s new memoir reveals the distinctive voice of a man for whom life is an ongoing odyssey of self-discovery, personal commitment, and uncompromising social engagement.

With deep insight and disarming candor, Farrell describes his early years as a timid but restless teenager in West Hollywood, delivering groceries to the homes of Jack Benny, Lucille Ball, Jimmy Stewart, and countless other celebrities, while dreaming of having his own career as an actor. In stark but riveting language, he relates his formative years as a Marine recruit, confused, conflicted, and eager to prove himself as a man.

Farrell humorously portrays his professional development from a young soap opera player on Days of Our Lives to the amiable star of two popular television series, M*A*S*H and Providence, to the respected producer of successful motion pictures like Dominick and Eugene and Patch Adams.

At the heart of his story, Farrell narrates his public struggle to be a responsible citizen of the world. From his firsthand accounts of the ravages of war and oppression in Cambodia, El Salvador, Somalia, Bosnia, Rwanda, and the Gaza Strip, to his tireless advocacy against capital punishment, to his deep commitment to environmental causes, Farrell portrays each of these experiences with passion, outrage, and stubborn optimism.

Susan Toney, Singer and Actress
Guest Occupation: Singer, Actress
Guest Biography:

Susan Toney's soul-stirring mix of rock, pop, folk, and blues is an intimate, poetic journey to the deep recesses of the heart and the soul. Toney discovered piano, guitar and the transcendent power of music at age two. After studying music formally, she bucked the lessons and family pressures, setting out to forge her own artistic identity. "I held on to my spirit like a wild stallion, refusing to be broken," she says. "My voice as an artist became a light to question fear, doubt, authority, and in the process find my own honesty, hope and faith."

Strange Child is a winding road of mesmerizing songcraft that sounds both timeless and original. Toney's impassioned vocals yearn and plead with a raw emotion and edgy intensity, conspiring with the lucid awareness of her lyrics to touch the listener in the deeply personal ways that female singer-songwriter icons Carole King, Janis Ian and Joni Mitchell viscerally connected with their audiences. In "Carolina", she sings: "This journey's deep as it is long/ Weave my heart my soul my songs/ Out of pieces make me whole and strong". Toney's quest is our own too, and even when dreams are tarnished by reality, there'still room for hope, trust, and love.

Toney enlists an A-list lineup of session players to complement her acoustic work on her 812-C: guitarists Jeff Pevar (David Crosby) and Greg Leisz (k.d. lang), bassist/ co-producer Chad Watson (Janis Ian), percussionist/vocalist Arno Lucas (Al Jarreau, Rickie Lee Jones), and keyboardist Skip Edwards (Dwight Yoakam). The rootsy, atmospheric swaths of electric guitar, pedal steel, dobro and Hammond B3 call to mind the sonic moods of Daniel Lanois, and make Toney's music even more emotionally palpable.

Toney has won awards in the American Songwriting Festival and the Billboard Songwriting Contest. In July 1994, she was honored as Artist of the Month by the National Association of Songwriters, Acoustic Underground. She was voted "Unsigned Artist of the Year" by "Music Connection" in 1996. Toney is sought after in songwriter circles as a co-writer and solo performer. "Just Don't Mention Love" is featured in the Miramax film, Little City, and "Without You" in Girl Talk.

Stuart Wilde, Metaphysician, Visionary, Author and Etheric Field Researcher
Guest Occupation: Metaphysician, Visionary, Author, Etheric Field Researcher
Guest Biography:

BIO BELOW FROM: http://www.stuartwilde.com/about/stuart-wilde/

Stuart Wilde is considered by many the greatest living metaphysician in the world today. In the last twelve years he has had over 100,000 visions, which have taught him a vast body of information not available elsewhere. Many of the most famous New Age, New Thought writers and teachers have privately studied with him, or they have been greatly influenced by his work.

In 2001, Wilde discovered the Morph phenomenon, a process by which physical reality goes transparent and soapy-looking and humans dematerialize.

Watching the transcendental nature of Morph for eight years, he gradually wrote out in details the topography and exact nature of what is now known as the Aluna, Mirror-Worlds, sometimes referred to as the Spirit Worlds; much of that information has since been verified by many others, who have greatly added to his initial work.

In the 1980s, Wilde correctly described the etheric life-field around humans in precise detail. Previously, it was known only in vague terms in discussions about the human aura. Wilde wrote out the first of many precise and verifiable etheric exercises and sensations in his book The Quickening (Hay House 1995).

Over the last ten years, he has published hundreds of his visions, many of which have now come to pass.

He has written twenty books, which have sold in the millions, and they have been translated into fifteen languages.
