In our present society, Halloween gets a bad rap! In recent times, It has become a commercial holiday all about goblins, ghosts, witches, zombies and monsters, but that is not what this holiday is about at all. The recent concept of the holiday literally mocks the original and focuses on the buying of costumes, masquerade parties, decorations, candy, etc. The original meaning has been lost.
Challenge your thinking and join us for our show tonight--ALL ABOUT SAMHAIN! What you thought about Halloween is really a bastardization of the beauty and ritual of the original holiday, Samhain, the Celtic New Year in ancient times.
During Samhain, the veil between our world and the OTHER WORLD is thin and it is said that the spirits, our ancestors walk between the two worlds. It is a perfect time of the year to remember and honor those loved ones who have gone on before us. Find out about the sacredness of the rituals, the customs and the practices of pantheists and pagans at this time of year and join us to listen to some traditional music.

ChemRisk, BP and Purple Strategies: A Tangled Web of Not-So-Independent Science by Cherri Foytlin on HUFFINGTON POST
SPOILER ALERT: BP hires the PR firm Purple Strategies, BP collects samples and provides them to Chemrisk for their "independent" study, Chemrisk (history of fraudulent industry induced science) produces a narrowly based study saying oil clean up workers from the 2010 BP Deep Water Disaster were not exposed to harmful levels of toxins, Purple Strategies (again, under the direction of BP) produces and pushes out a press release titled, "Study by Leading Scientific Consulting Firm Finds No Evidence of Health Dangers for Gulf Coast Cleanup Workers," which travels around the world through their exponential media networks with no further thought or investigation. BP buys the science, the media, the platform - and Gulf Coast workers and citizens continue to suffer from damning health effects to this day.

Why We March Against Monsanto...
October 12th, 2013 is an International Day of Action for the important movement that is quickly gaining ground, MARCH AGAINST MONSANTO.
This is the 2nd event here in Tampa, the first one was earlier this year on May 25th and one of the organizers of that event was Alexis Mariah Cruz.
Several hundred marched in Tampa on that day and the event was a big success as it increased awareness about the huge and growing corporate control over our global food supply and our precious water. The staging area for tomorrow's event (Sat, Oct 12th, 2013) is at Lykes Gaslight Square Park in Tampa and participants will gather at 11AM.
See more at the FB Event Page here: https://www.facebook.com/events/139712262868043/
Call in or join us in the CHAT ROOM to voice your concerns, ask questions and/or comment. We broadcast LIVE at 10PM EST and the archive is available forever on BLOGTALKRADIO. The call in number is: (213) 816-0357.
Just go to the following link to get to the show:
"My name is Alexis M. Cruz and I am 23 year old resident of Tampa, FL. Before the last march I was invited by my partner to start attending March Against Monsanto organizational meetings at first as a sort of a tag along thing. I started taking notes and becoming educated on the subject of GMO's, as well as the harm industrialized farming is doing to our bodies and the earth. I helped to organize the last March on May 25th that was considered by those who attended a great success. I am currently working with Bee Against Monsanto as a follow up to the marches."
