Link: Myth Buster: A Possible New Series

From Jim Bawden:

Myth Buster: A Possible New Series
It’s simply time for CBC-TV to order a full season of Myth Or Science. The fourth in this irregular series on The Nature Of Things comes up Thursday night at 8 on CBC. And once again the photogenic Dr. Jennifer Gardy is in total command as she tackles all the myths we’ve ever heard about the weather.

Like its three predecessors this hour is jam packed with great visuals and Gardy’s fantastic TV presence –she has the scientific credentials but is also aware of what she has to do on TV to keep us interested. Continue reading.


One thought on “Link: Myth Buster: A Possible New Series”

  1. My first meeting to AA was 41 years ago. I have now been sober for 37 years. In those early days for me I did have treatment first for alcohol, second for prescription drugs and third time I was on a dry drunk. I will agree AA is not the same today as it was then. I can tell you why it is not working as it did before. First, anonymity is not being honored. The Twelve Traditions are not being followed. People are coming in and thinking they know it all. There are many reasons why it is not working today. There is no way to determine how many people are in the program and how many have failed as there are not any statistics kept. A few years ago I worked in a treatment center and only worked there for about four months. I did not like what I seen happening at that time and, yes, they were being shamed. Never, never should this ever happen.
    Addiction has nothing to do with will power which many people still have that mindset. I’ve read many discussions about AA, and it saddens me to hear some of the experiences that people have had. We have all asked “Why me” well, “Why not you”. This is a very complex disease. We have come a long way in understanding this disease and there is still much to learn. I am very grateful that the hand of AA was there when I needed the help. But for the Grace of God, there go I.
