6:35 Nicole Neily, President of Speech First, chats with Bill today.
“American University’s Center for Diversity and Inclusion would like to require faculty to address students by their ‘chosen name and pronouns,’ so as to make transgender, genderqueer and gender non-conforming students feel welcome.” The desire to make this permanent AU policy was expressed by an AU administrator in an email she attempted to recall. AU currently has a best-practice guide on using “preferred” pronouns. Under current policy, the failure to use the right pronoun may be considered a bias incident by AU’s bias response system. According to AU’s website, “Even when offenders are not aware of bias or do not intend to offend others, bias may be revealed which is worthy of a response and an opportunity for education.”
“The threat of such discipline chills student (and faculty) speech – and universities are supposed to be places where controversial ideas are vigorously debated in the pursuit of truth.”
7:10 Tom Silver, scientific hypnotist, is in studio with Bill today. With the recent mass shootings, is there any chance we could be looking at “Manchurian Candidate” types of programming going on? It’s an interesting question.
Creating Killers. Homegrown hypnosis and brainwashing.
Well the mass shooting is for sure, hypnosis and brainwashing. Maybe set up by Russia, or the democrats or a person trying to outlaw high powered rifles. Think about it. Mind control, programing a killer is not something new. I have done it on Discovery’s Brainwashed. We discussed this in the past on radio and maybe need to get more into after what happened this week. Here is something to look at written by Mr. Estabrooks.

8:10 Dr. Warren Farrell, author of The Boy Crisis: Why Our Boys Are Struggling and What We Can Do About It. Dr. Farrell is currently the Chair of the Commission to Create a White House Council on Boys and Men.
What is the boy crisis?
It’s a crisis of education. Worldwide, boys are 50 percent less likely than girls to meet basic proficiency in reading, math, and science.
It’s a crisis of mental health. ADHD is on the rise. And as boys become young men, their suicide rates go from equal to girls to six times that of young women.
It’s a crisis of fathering. Boys are growing up with less-involved fathers and are more likely to drop out of school, drink, do drugs, become delinquent, and end up in prison.
It’s a crisis of purpose. Boys’ old sense of purpose—being a warrior, a leader, or a sole breadwinner—are fading. Many bright boys are experiencing a “purpose void,” feeling alienated, withdrawn, and addicted to immediate gratification.
So, what is The Boy Crisis? A comprehensive blueprint for what parents, teachers, and policymakers can do to help our sons become happier, healthier men, and fathers and leaders worthy of our respect.

8:10 Dr. Dennis Powers joins Bill in studio. It’s this week’s edition of: “What Made Southern Oregon Great”
The Lady of the Woods
By Dennis Powers
During the winter of 1917 and following spring, reports of a discovered stone woman filtered into Crater Lake park headquarters. The naked figure sat against a large lava rock in near “full relief,” legs bent, one arm placed over her head as if shielding away danger. Surrounded by trees, the figure was located on the lake’s rim, 1.7 miles from the lodge. The media was incredulous at this find with story leads such as “Mummy woman found in woods” and “Ancient figure of woman discovered.”
The discovery of the “Lady of the Woods” during the following years brought about remarkable theories as to how she had been created. Park workers speculated in 1919 that this was an effigy or petrification that could be older than the Egyptian mummies. Some thought this to be a natural formation. One legend explained the carving, or form, as the response to the loss of a loved one.
The true origin was revealed first to the general public in 1921 by a newspaper article. This account wrote that Dr. Earl Russell Bush–the official surgeon for the U. S. Engineers in 1917 and stationed in Crater Lake National Park during that summer–was the sculpturer. One year, Dr. Bush substantiated this in a letter.
He had time on his hands that October with “diminished responsibilities” toward the end of the 1917 season. Dr. Bush had persuaded the park blacksmith, William Ivy, to make a set of rock-sculpting tools. With some stonemason experience, he began his work. From Oct. 4th to Oct. 19th, the metallic sounds of “Clink! Clink! Clink!” penetrated the usually quiet hemlock forests on Mt. Mazama’s slopes.
He didn’t tell anyone about his work or visits into the woodlands. Curiosity and the persistent tapping of hammer and chisel against volcanic rock, however, eventually led a few to seek out the site. Although he was reassured by their praises, Dr. Bush pledged all to secrecy. The good doctor left for the East and his secret was well guarded. Park Superintendent Alex Sparrow was alone granted permission to let William Steel, the U. S. Park Commissioner, know the following summer about this. Thus, in 1918, Sparrow covered the stone chips with pine needles and took Steel out to see it. Told the truth later, he joined the others in their secret–that is, until four years later, when someone gave the story up and Bush later verified it.
The truth concerning the “Lady of the Woods”–or “The Stone Woman of Crater Lake”–didn’t gain traction after the first revelation. A lengthy 1923 article–among other written stories–wrote that Samuel Hubbard (the then curator of archaeology at the Oakland Museum) thought the lady was the cast of an actual woman, engulfed by a volcanic mud flow that had poured down Mt. Mazama. He reasoned that the mud wouldn’t have been hot enough to destroy the body and quickly solidified. After a period of time, the body’s disintegration left a perfect mold, and a later volcanic mud eruption flowed into this mold, filling it completely and solidifying. Five months later, the Fresno Bee on October 24, 1923, broke the story of what had actually happened by Dr. Bush’s efforts.
By 1930, the interest in the “Lady of the Woods” had increased so greatly that it became necessary to construct a trail there from a point near the old office building. Marked by simple signs, the trail passes the south end of the Ranger Dormitory, over the creek crossed by a small bridge, and westward a few hundred feet to the actual site. Ask park rangers for the directions.
Over the years, the story has inspired poems, articles, and feature stories–something now to keep in mind if you see this symbol of the inspiration that one man discovered within the wilderness. Even now, she sleeps in the woods for those who can find her.
