Alison Johnson, BA., M.A., is a summa cum laude graduate of Carleton College and studied mathematics at the Sorbonne on a National Science Foundation Fellowship. She received a master’s degree in mathematics from the University of Wisconsin, where she studied on a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship. Johnson has produced and directed documentaries titled Multiple Chemical Sensitivity: How Chemical Exposures May Be Affecting Your Health, Gulf War Syndrome: Aftermath of a Toxic Battlefield, and The Toxic Clouds of 9/11: A Looming Health Disaster. She has also edited a book titled Casualties of Progress: Personal Histories from the Chemically Sensitive and has written books titled Gulf War Syndrome: Legacy of a Perfect War and Amputated Lives: Coping with Chemical Sensitivity. The latter contains chapters on the health problems affecting the workers who helped clean up the Exxon Valdez oil spill, the soldiers who developed Gulf War Syndrome in the 1991 war, New Yorkers exposed to the toxins released by the World Trade Center collapse and fires and residents of FEMA trailers post-Katrina. Alison Johnson organized a press conference on Capitol Hill in February 2001 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Gulf War. The participants included veterans, Ross Perot, and Senators Kay Bailey Hutchison and Dick Durbin. She has given copies of her Gulf War Syndrome and 9/11 documentaries and her first two books to every member of Congress. Amputated Lives will be given to all members of Congress in early 2009. In June 2002, she presented her Gulf War Syndrome book on C-Span 2 BookTV. In 2004, she received the American Academy of Environmental Medicine’s Carleton Lee Award for “exemplary efforts in furthering the principles of environmental medicine.” The condition of multiple chemical sensitivity has been rapidly growing with the proliferation of new, untested chemicals in our environment. In recent decades, people from many walks of life have developed a new intolerance for the chemicals found in perfume, air fresheners, cleaning products, fabric softeners, diesel and auto exhaust, new carpet, paint, and other products. Their ranks include large numbers of Exxon Valdez cleanup workers, Gulf War veterans, 9/11 First Responders, and FEMA trailer residents. Part I of Amputated Lives analyzes the development of chemical sensitivity in these various groups and its consequences. Part II illustrates with stories from various individuals how this condition can quickly wreck what was once a good life. www.alisonjohnsonmcs.com
Long-time organic farmers Julie Rawson and Jack Kittredge of Many Hands Organic Farm will be here today to discuss a better way to grow your food, and answer questions about the recent outbreak of unsafe foods like eggs. Many Hands Organic Farm has been in existence since 1982 and has been selling to the public since 1985. We were first certified organic by the Massachusetts chapter of the Northeast Organic Farming Association in 1987. Since 2003 our certification has been handled by the Baystate Organic Certifiers since NOFA/Massachusetts no longer functions as a certifying agency. Organic certification is a process by which a third party organization sets a standard for organic production and management that the farmer adheres to. In October 2002 there came into place a National Organic Program with standards for certification that is the same for all farms across the US. Prior to this date certification was taken care of by 44 independent certifiers across the country. We at Many Hands plan to continue to be certified organic into the future. Many Hands Organic Farm (www.mhof.net ) was certified organic by NOFA/Mass, the Northeast Organic Farming Association/Massachusetts Chapter, from 1987 to 2000 and by NOFA/Mass Organic Certification from 2001-2003. The NOFA/Mass Certification Program changed its name to Baystate Organic Certifiers in 2004; MHOF is presently certified by them. The farmers are happy to explain their practices and answer your questions about how your food is grown. They also operate Many Hands Sustainability Center, Inc., a 501 (c)(3 whose mission is to promote methods of sustainable living, including organic agriculture, renewable energy, food preservation, homesteading skills, nutrition and its centrality to human health. The Center works to serve the needs of all populations, including such underserved groups as former prisoners, youth and family farmers. The Center is located at 411 Sheldon Road in Barre MA.

Maryam Henein Co-Director / Producer of The Vanishing of the Bees will be here this morning. Maryam is an investigative journalist and researcher who has worked in documentary film making for the past ten years. She has helped produce documentaries for the BBC, Discovery, Robert Greenwald and Morgan Spurlock. Prior to Vanishing of the Bees she produced an episode for The Sierra Club Chronicles about the Exxon Valdez oil spill. As a journalist she has written for Los Angeles Times, Science & Spirit Magazine, Penthouse and The Cairo Times. Maryam believes wholeheartedly that she is in service to bees and the message they wish to convey.Honeybees, a keystone species vital to sustaining our ecosystem, are mysteriously disappearing across the planet, literally vanishing from their hives. Known as Colony Collapse Disorder, this phenomenon has brought beekeepers to crisis in an industry responsible for producing apples, broccoli, watermelon, onions, cherries, almonds and a hundred other fruits and vegetables. Commercial honeybee operations pollinate crops that provide one out of every three bites of food on our tables. Vanishing of the Bees follows commercial beekeepers David Hackenberg and Dave Mendes as they strive to keep their bees healthy and fulfill pollination contracts across the U.S. The film explores the struggles they face as the two friends plead their case on Capital Hill and travel across the Pacific Ocean in the quest to protect their honeybees. Filming across the US, in Europe, Australia and Asia, this documentary examines the alarming disappearance of honeybees and the greater meaning it holds about the relationship between mankind and mother earth. As scientists puzzle over the cause, organic beekeepers indicate alternative reasons for this tragic loss. Conflicting opinions abound and after years of research, a definitive answer has not been found to this harrowing mystery. www.vanishingbees.com

Patti Sherlock knows how to tell a dog story. Her books, three novels for young people and three adult nonfiction books -- with many of them being about the bond between master and pet -- have garnered awards and recognitions. A Dog for All Seasons, St.Martin's Press, April, 2010, is about the author's brilliant and steadfast companion, Duncan, a Border collie. Letters from Wolfie, Penguin-Putnam, 2004, is about a 13-year-old boy who volunteers his dog to be a scout dog during the Vietnam war. The book was a Junior Library Guild selection, and it was also selected for "Solano Kids Read," 2008, as well as for "One City-One Book," by Westminster, CO, 2005. The book was nominated for the Rebecca Caudill Award (Illinois) 2009, and won the Merial Human-Animal Bond Award from the Dog Writers Association of America. Can Man’s Best Friend Ease Mental Illness? Expert Reveals How Pet Companionship Can Ease Emotional Strife? The New York Times recently reported a story about how dogs are now being enlisted to help these veterans reclaim their emotional balance. In an experimental program, the federal government is providing preliminary support to connect some veterans with trained dogs to help them heal. The program is already achieving some very tangible successes, with a number of servicemen in the program now able to sleep, no longer needing multiple forms of medication, and even getting out of their homes and reintegrating themselves into society. This is no surprise to Patti Sherlock, author of A Dog for All Seasons (www.pattisherlock.com ), because as a farm girl, she’s been surrounded by dogs all her life.
Will the Gulf Oil Blowout Affect the Price of Gold and Silver?Maverick Economist Says Gold Will Rise As Investors Run for Cover. Howard Ruff has been saying for weeks that there is no gold bubble, and one of the reasons for that is the toxic brew that’s hiding below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico. Ruff, an unapologetic curmudgeon, has been advising subscribers to his newsletter The Ruff Times (www.rufftimes.com ) - a list that totals 600,000 people - over 34 years. He says that the BP oil spill will have huge ramifications on the economy as the dispersants mixed with the oil and other gasses associated with the spill and the clean-up efforts become toxic rain that will soak farmlands and residential areas in the Eastern U.S. Some areas of the East may eventually become practically uninhabitable, crippling the U.S. economy. The economic ripple will hit investors soon. As a result, many millions will be looking for safe havens for their money, and over the the last few decades, gold has been one of the safest of harbors. He feels that gold will continue to soar, perhaps upwards of $2,400 per ounce. Back in 1979, gold reached $800 per ounce, and everyone thought that bubble would burst, too. But it didn’t then. Instead, the Reagan administration cut spending and stopped printing money. Until the Obama administration does the same, Ruff says gold will soar in the wake of the economic and environmental disaster of the gulf oil spill as toxic rain hits the heart of the American economy east of the Mississippi. Ruff’s advice is refined by being a maverick economist for more than three decades.
