Grieving the Loss of a Child (First Hand Experience)

Disney Channel star Cameron Boyce died over two years ago, but his parents are very much keeping his memory – and his legacy – alive. Join us as the grieving parents candidly share their healing process and what they wish the people in their lives would do differently. They also discuss what people can do to manage their own grief. An illuminating first hand look at what parents who lose a child go through. To learn more -- or read the transcript -- please visit the official episode page here. Guest Bio Libby Boyce grew up in New Haven, CT, and has lived in Los Angeles for 30 years. She has a degree in social work and has worked for Los Angeles County in health care administration for the last 28 years. In addition to a full-time position as a social worker, Libby also serves as President of The Cameron Boyce Foundation.   Victor Boyce grew up in Los Angeles, and has a degree in business. After being self-employed for many years he now devotes his time to The Cameron Boyce Foundation, where he serves as Vice President.  Victor and Libby, alongside close friends and family members created The Cameron Boyce Foundation in July of 2019, after the passing of their son, the late actor Cameron Boyce, who died from SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy). The foundation was created to carry on Cameron's legacy by supporting causes and organizations that were meaningful to Cameron, however its primary focus is raising awareness and research dollars for epilepsy. The lack of information that exists for this particular facet of the disease is astounding, and as such, it is their greatest mission to change that. Since the foundation's inception, they have donated over $125,000 towards epilepsy research. Victor and Libby are also parents to Maya Boyce, Cameron's younger sister, who attends college in Boston.  The Cameron Boyce Foundation was founded in July of 2019, to continue the philanthropic legacy of the late Cameron Boyce. Prior to his passing, Cameron created Wielding Peace, a social media campaign to encourage young people to choose peace through creative outlets instead of turning to violence. TCBF's mission is to raise awareness and research dollars for epilepsy and SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy) through digital campaigns and programmatic partnerships, however the foundation additionally supports other causes that were meaningful to Cameron, such as ending gun violence as well as the global water crisis. Inside Mental Health Podcast Host Gabe Howard is an award-winning writer and speaker who lives with bipolar disorder. He is the author of the popular book, "Mental Illness is an Asshole and other Observations," available from Amazon; signed copies are also available directly from the author.

Today's guests are Carmen Dianne and Kara Still, founders of Prosperity Market. Last year, as the world was dealing with the coronavirus pandemic and the racial reckoning spurred on by the murder of George Floyd, Carmen felt inspired to do something about it. She partnered up with Kara and the two of them set out to create a market that would feature black farmers and businesses, also while providing low-income areas of LA with access to fresh produce and healthy food. The idea was solid, but there were bumps in the road that were unforeseen, such as difficulty in finding black farmers. The progress may not be as fast as Carmen would like, but little by little they are making their presence known all over Los Angeles County and making a big impact in the communities they visit. Listen in as we cover everything from why they legally can't call themselves a farmer's market, how they've been able to grow largely through direct donations on their website, and why they're currently building two businesses; the one they're in now and the one they'll be in five years from now.

Merry Christmas Michigan shooting: https://www.khq.com/news/authorities-student-kills-3-wounds-6-at-michigan-school/article_dec7aaec-41ad-5d7c-b72b-68cd78aecaea.html?fbclid=IwAR1D44wWeZ-I26PIcyLZZfDHusYax0Vmn6V2eEQ5zgQ2YHozapyT-u8R-Jg According to KHQ: “Authorities say eight people were wounded in an attack at a Michigan high school in which three students were killed. Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe said at a news conference that two of the wounded were undergoing surgery as of 5 p.m. Tuesday and that the six others were in stable condition. He identified the three students who were killed as a 16-year-old boy and two girls, ages 14 and 17. Authorities say they received a flood of 911 calls shortly before 1 p.m. about an attack at Oxford High School in Oxford Township, a community of about 22,000 people roughly 30 miles (48 kilometers) north of Detroit. McCabe said deputies took the shooting suspect — a 15-year-old sophomore — into custody without incident within five minutes of arriving at the school. He said the suspect's parents visited him where he's being held and advised their son not to talk to investigators, as is his right. He said as far as he knows, the suspect had no prior run-ins with law enforcement.” Public schools are not safe for your kids. Dr. Oz, celebrity physician, launches campaign for Senate in Pa. as a Republican https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/elections/dr-oz-celebrity-physician-launches-campaign-senate-pa-republican-n1285109?cid=sm_npd_nn_fb_ma “Dr. Mehmet Oz, a physician known to national TV audiences, announced Tuesday that he will run for Senate in Pennsylvania as a Republican, throwing more uncertainty into the closely watched primary. "We are angry at our government and at each other," Oz wrote in guest column published by The Washington Examiner. "We have not managed our crises as effectively as past generations. During the pandemic, I learned that when you mix politics and medicine, you get politics instead of solutions. That's why I am running for the U.S. Senate: to help fix the problems and to help us heal." Oz, in a video tweeted Tuesday afternoon, specified that he is seeking the Republican nomination. Pennsylvania's Senate battle became a spectacle last week when former President Donald Trump's endorsed candidate, Sean Parnell, ended his campaign after his estranged wife was granted sole legal custody of their children in a case where she alleged abuse. Parnell denied the accusations. "Pennsylvania needs a conservative who will put America first,” Oz, echoing Trump, said in his announcement video. Oz, a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania's medical school and Wharton School who as recently as 2020 lived in New Jersey, registered to vote in Pennsylvania last year at the home of his in-laws, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.” La County Sheriff Holding His Ground: https://twitter.com/BillFOXLA/status/1465507928241176580/photo/1 Can a city declare itself a republic? Calif. town just did According to News Nation Now: Fed up with COVID-19 regulations and vaccine mandates, the leaders of one California city have decided to take matters into their own hands. Oroville's City Council overwhelmingly voted to declare the town a “constitutional republic” earlier this month. What that means, according to the declaration, is: “Any executive orders issued by the State of California or by the United States federal government that are overreaching or clearly violate our constitutionally protected rights will not be enforced by the City of Oroville against its citizens.” What does it mean in practice? Oroville's mayor told the East Bay Times it “doesn't change anything.” “It's simply reminding people what kind of government we live under and that they do have personal choices and freedoms,” Mayor Chuck Reynolds told the Times. Proponents of the constitutional republic told reporters they were especially upset with California's requirement that children 12 and older eventually get vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to attend school. However, even after this vote, schools in Oroville will still be regulated (and largely funded) by the state. Oroville isn't the only California city to try and take a stand against the state's COVID-19 policies. Earlier in the pandemic, two towns decided to defy Gov. Gavin Newsom's shutdown orders for certain businesses, reports the Los Angeles Times. They lost some funding from the state as a result, according to the paper. The desire to secede isn't unique to California, either. The Washington Times and a USA Today columnist noticed the trend in 2020, pointing out that rural pockets of blue states are often the ones who want out. A few Virginia counties said they wanted to join their more conservative friends in West Virginia, but Adam Dean, a history professor at the University of Lynchburg, called the prospect of getting approval from both state legislatures and Congress “extremely unlikely.” Some residents in southern Oregon and far northern California have also been trying to form a 51st state of Jefferson for nearly 80 years. But as The New York Times reports, the creation of the new state would not only require California and Oregon to give the OK — Congress would have to sign off, too. So can a city decide it's fed up with its home state and go it alone? The short answer is no, at least not by merely putting the matter to a city council vote. In theory, the city's citizens could take up arms and go to war to fight for independence. But it would literally take a civil war. And since cities don't have armies, it's easy to see why even a large metropolis would be easily outmatched — not to mention Oroville, California: population 20,000.

Biden Bans Travel to South America: If you recall, Biden tweeted this when Trump banned travel from China: Well now that Biden banned travel to/from South America, it is not racist, because Jen Psaki said so: Roll clip: https://twitter.com/BreitbartNews/status/1465411536801914881 File this under New Zealand has left the reservation: LA begins enforcing strict mandate requiring proof of vax https://abcnews.go.com/Health/wireStory/la-begins-enforcing-strict-mandate-requiring-proof-vax-81457466?cid=social_fb_abcnp According to ABC news: “Enforcement began Monday in Los Angeles for one of the strictest vaccine mandates in the country, a sweeping measure that requires proof of shots for everyone entering a wide variety of businesses from restaurants to theaters and gyms to nail and hair salons. While the latest order aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus took effect Nov. 8, city officials spent the past three weeks providing business owners the information and resources business they need to comply. “Nobody wants to penalize anyone,” said Sharon Tso, the city's Chief Legislative Analyst, whose office drafted the enforcement rules. “That's why we've been prioritizing education.” A first offense will bring a warning but subsequent ones could produce fines running from $1,000 to $5,000. Inspectors with the Department of Building and Safety will enforce the mandate, and the city hopes to eventually get assistance from the LA County Department of Public Health, Tso said. She didn't immediately know if any warnings or citations were issued on Monday. Los Angeles is among a growing number of cities across the U.S., including San Francisco and New York City, requiring people show proof of vaccination to enter various types of businesses and venues. But rules in the nation's second-most-populous city, called SafePassLA, apply to more types of businesses and other indoor locations including concert halls, museums and convention centers. A sign reminding customers to be prepared to show their vaccine cards hangs at the Muddy Paw Coffee Shop in the Eagle Rock neighborhood, where owner Darren Laborie said he's thankful that the vast majority of his regulars have happily complied with the shifting regulations over the past year and a half. “We have to adapt to whatever rules are coming at us. And our customers go along with us,” Laborie said. Those that don't want to wear a mask or show vaccine proof can sit in the outdoor patio or take their coffees and pastries to go, he said. One year ago, Los Angeles was becoming the state's epicenter of the worst spike of the pandemic in California. By January an average of 500 people were dying statewide every day. To guard against another spike in cases, deaths and hospitalizations, the LA City Council voted 11-2 last month for the ordinance that requires people 12 and older to be fully vaccinated to enter indoor public spaces including sports arenas, museums, spas, indoor city facilities and other locations. Retail stores and shopping malls are exempt. Negative coronavirus tests within 72 hours of entry to those establishments would be required for people with religious or medical exemptions for vaccinations. Customers without proof can still use outdoor facilities and can briefly enter a business to use a restroom or pick up a food order. Business trade groups have said the mandate will sow confusion and could present safety concerns for employees tasked with checking customers' vaccination status. Laborie shares concerns that the rules could place “an undue burden” on small business owners. “A lot of businesses can't afford to have employees spending their time at the front door all the time. They just don't have the staffing,” he said. Melanie Bolen happily showed her vaccine card before having lunch inside Fred 62, an upscale diner in the city's Los Feliz neighborhood. “I mean, I'm fine with that," Bolen said. "If that's what's needed to help get things over with this pandemic, I'm all for it.” While many cold-weather states are seeing sharp increases in cases, California's per capita rate has been among the nation's lowest for two months and that has kept hospitalizations relatively low after a late-summer surge. In the last two weeks, Los Angeles County hospitalizations have fallen about 10%, mirroring the statewide trend. State forecasts show a continuing decline through Christmas. Among LA county's roughly 10 million people, 82% of eligible residents now have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose and 74% of those eligible are fully vaccinated, according to public health officials.” Remember that in 2021, where we had lockdowns and access to a vaccine, we had more COVID deaths this year, than we did in 2020. Lockdowns don't work, the vaxx don't work, and all these health bureaucracies need to go! Twitter Crackdown: Video And Photo Sharing Banned Without Consent Under First Day With New CEO https://www.dailywire.com/news/twitter-crackdown-video-and-photo-sharing-banned-without-consent-under-first-day-with-new-ceo?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=benshapiro According to the Daily Wire: “One day after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey resigned from the company he founded about 16 years ago, Twitter, under new CEO Parag Agrawal has issued a new ban that restricts sharing videos or photos without consent on the platform. The new addition was listed on Twitter's blog on Tuesday, saying, “NEW: media of private individuals without the permission of the person(s) depicted.” The new policy is designed to “help curb the misuse of media to harass, intimidate, and reveal the identities of private individuals, which disproportionately impacts women, activists, dissidents, and members of minority communities.” “Beginning today, we will not allow the sharing of private media, such as images or videos of private individuals without their consent. Publishing people's private info is also prohibited under the policy, as is threatening or incentivizing others to do so,” Twitter also noted. Twitter's guidelines will also leave room for interpretation based on “context.” “Our existing private information policy includes many exceptions in order to enable robust reporting on newsworthy events and conversations that are in the public interest,” Twitter's guidelines state.” Lastly, lets get an update on former disgraced Governor Cuomo and his brother “objective journalist” Chris Cuomo: Roll clip: https://www.today.com/video/chris-cuomo-s-link-with-former-ny-gov-andrew-cuomo-draws-new-focus-127500357987 What strikes me about all this, is that CNN claims to be an objective news source and yet they continue to hire journalist that cover up major news stories, or that masterbate on live company conference calls like Jeffrey Toobin did. CNN really is a cesspool of liars, molesters, and power hungry zealots. They really do hate the truth. Closing This is Gabriel Rench with Crosspolitic News.

It's Acadiana: Out to Lunch

If you were born in or after 1984 you haven't lived in a world without the Karate Kid. Before that date, Karate wasn't always a fixture of youth activity in U.S. But, believe it or not, it was in Crowley, Louisiana! Way back in the 1970's, thanks to Acadiana Karate. Today, Stacey Knight Mejia and her husband Pablo run the dojo at a space in Lafayette. Pablo originally took over the business in 1978 and expanded it from its home in Crowley. Today, Acadiana Karate offers instruction in mixed martial arts with methods based in a variety of disciplines: Judo, Tai Kwan Do, Jujitsu, Akido, Kung Fu and American Shotokan.  Besides the local shift from Crowley to Lafayette, one nationwide change over the last two decades is the number of women training and competing in martial arts. Today, around 30 or 40% of Stacey's students are women and girls.  Stacey is a lawyer by training, but left the legal profession to make a career out of karate. Speaking of gender gaps, there's been much written about representation in the world of art. A recent data analysis of 18 U.S. art museums found that 87% of their collections are men. There's been important progress, however, in leadership roles. In 2005, around 30% of museum directors were women. Today it's 47%.  LouAnne Greenwald figures into the number. She directs the Hilliard University Art Museum, and has worked to connect the museum and UL with the rest of the community.  Since taking over in 2014, she's established educational programs, increased staff and rolled out free Wednesday programs that help open the museum's doors.  LouAnne has a long history in arts, collections and fundraising, working as consultant in Washington D.C. and Los Angeles, where she also cut her teeth as curator and educator for the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.  Out to Lunch Acadiana is recorded live over lunch at Tula Tacos and Amigos in downtown Lafayette.

For a long time, I have had a strained relationship with the Church. Years ago, I came out as a gay teenager and experienced lateral violence from adults who were leaders in the Church. Instead of doing what Jesus would do, they put me in a box and pushed me away. However, after years of therapy, I now know that people out there love me exactly as I am and align with my values. Andre Henry, a musician, singer, songwriter, author, and activist I met over a decade ago at a Church event, is this week's guest on Marking The Path. In this episode, we talk about showing up despite your past, the importance of sharing your trauma and triumphs, and gaining a stronger sense of self when you lose friends who don't align with your values. We also talk about Andre's forthcoming book, "All the White Friends I Couldn't Keep," the publishing process, and when to buy it. To pre-order his book, click here! Guest Bio: Andre Henry has a passion for making the invisible visible. In the summer of 2016, he began lugging a solid granite boulder around Los Angeles to show the weight of systemic racism on the black psyche. Months later, he walked around dressed for a funeral with the names of the victims of state violence written on his jacket; and in response to the police-involved death of his mentally ill neighbor, J.R. Thomas, Andre founded an activist collective called “Something Disruptive” dedicated to creative, nonviolent direct action. Together, “Something Disruptive” convened a group of community leaders, students, clergy, and civilians from around Los Angeles County for a year-long vigil in protest of police brutality in the wake of J.R. Thomas' death at the doors of the Pasadena Police Station called “A Subversive Liturgy.” Through this year-long action, the group raised financial support for J.R.'s family and local Black Lives Matter activists, as well as mobilized support for the Black Lives Matter Pasadena Freedom School serving the youth of Northwest Pasadena. Andre is a student of nonviolent struggle and social change, including studying leadership in nonviolent movements for social change through the Harvard Kennedy School. He specializes in using digital media to educate and mobilize audiences for racial justice and social progress. He has served as managing editor at RELEVANT Media Group and is currently a contributing editor for The Sider Center for Peace and Justice in Philadelphia, a Content Expert for the Fuller Leadership Platform, and a Research Assistant for the Innovation for Vocation Project. He has also earned theology degrees from both Southeastern University and Fuller Seminary. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

Beginning as a Spanish Rancho in 1798, the City of Glendale incorporated in 1906 and has grown to become the fourth largest city in Los Angeles County with a population just under 200,000. Over time, Glendale has also become home to significant companies in the Greater Los Angeles region. Headquarters to notable companies including International House of Pancakes, Avery Dennison, LegalZoom and Public Storage, Glendale also boasts an impressive array of leading creative companies, including Walt Disney Imagineering, Disney Interactive, Marvel Animation Studios, Walt Disney Animation, and KABC-TV, to name a few. Since the 1960s, Glendale has also become home to the largest diaspora of Armenians in the U.S., representing roughly 40% of the city's overall population. This, in stark contrast to the historic prevalence of racially restrictive covenants in Glendale, and its status as a “sundown town” well into the mid-20th century. That said, as of late 2020, Glendale was only one of three cities in the United States to acknowledge and apologize for its racially exclusionary past. Join CivitasLA for our latest “Community Spotlight” with Councilmember Ardy Kassakhian and Elen Asatryan, two noted community leaders, as we discuss the issues and opportunities facing Glendale today and the central role the Armenian community plays within the city, our region, and continues to play internationally.

Lola Montez - Part 2 of 2

Queens of the Mines

Play Episode Listen Later Nov 6, 2021 34:50


Lola's mother had found out about new life in Europe, and she went into mourning as if her daughter was dead, sending out customary funeral letters on stationary edged in black. Lola could have easily been the richest woman to ever live, had she preferred her own advantage over political freedom. Lola's identity had been revealed at Her Majesty's Theatre, it led to an arrest on a charge of bigamy. Lola's wealthy new husband George Trafford Heald bailed her out of jail and they ran to Spain. The feisty and sometimes violent Montez and Heald were not getting along and the couple eventually decided to split while in Portugal. When George Heald suddenly and mysteriously drowned there in Portugal, Lola gained Heald's large inheritance. Lola, with her new fortune, was ready to find a new start. It was 1850, and she left for the land the whole world had been rushing to, The United States of America.   On the stages up and down the east coast of the New World, Lola Montez debuted a southern Italian folk dance, her own gussied up version of a lively tarantella. She wore tights in the color of her flesh, and layers and layers of petticoats in every color that bounced with her quick, flirtatious steps.  In her act, she was playing the part of a maiden in the country, who had spiders in her clothes. The spiders hung from her gloves and gown and hid under the layers of her petticoat. As she shook off and stomped away the toy spiders that riddled her costume and the stage, she exposed her shapely legs and as she lifted her skirt, the men cheered for her to find each and every spider. Lola lifted her petticoat so high that the men in the audience went crazy, for they could see, onstage, Lola wore no underclothing at all. Lola Montez was a smash. Although not everyone impressed, and some believed her performance was unprofessional, and talentless.    Lola stirred up excitement on that side of the new world for two years. After one particular show at an East Coast theatre, the manager openly criticized her spider act. Backstage, the sassy star retaliated with the bull whip she used onstage, busting the manager's face open. Denying the assault later, Lola said instead “there is one comfort in the falsehood, which is, that this man very likely would have deserved the whipping.” It was soon decided that she may be a better match with the lawless west. Without telling anyone, Lola caught a ride via a Pacific Mail paddle-wheel steamer in New Orleans, headed for California.   After the passage along the isthmus of Panama, and finally on the last ship of the voyage, Lola stood on the deck with a male distinguished fellow passenger looking out over the water. He asked her about her life. “My father was Irish, she told Brannan. “Irish! Well, then where did you get the name Montez?” Lola Montez stared out into the still ocean, “I took it”. She said. Just like I have taken everything I ever wanted.”    He chuckled, approvingly. This man was Sam Brannan. California's first millionaire. Brannan was on his way home after doing business in Boston and New York, he had a wife and 4 children at home in California yet he was paying much attention to his glamorous shipmate. The 29 year old Lola was by now an epic tabloid sensation in The United States. Her political schemes, erotic expolits and violent temper had made the top headlines through out the world. Yet no one would be at the long wharf to greet her when she stepped off the ship into San Francisco in 1853. She was arriving unannounced.   On the northeast corner of Sansome and Halleck streets, stood the American Theater. The American Theatre was the first brick large building built on the newly made soil along Sansome Street on land reclaimed from Yerba Buena Cove. During its opening night two years earlier in 1851, The American Theatre was so crowded that the walls sunk a couple of inches from the weight.    The irish satirist Richard Brinsley Sheridan's comedy "School for Scandal” was playing, and Lola Montez was playing Lady Teazle. The theater was able to charge $5 for the best seats. An outrageous price.  The reason being, the men in the audience truly desired to see her famous risque Spider Dance they had read about in the East Coast papers, and with that it was more than a dance they wanted to see. If you know what I mean. Lola obliged on the second night, to the delight of the mostly male audience her body exposed by her contortions.  She won the people over through naked charisma and pure force of personality. The act was reasonably well received by some, and it outraged others who felt they were obliged to look for the spiders in improper places.    Lola Montez was an eccentric woman who fascinated the masses entirely. She wore trousers and she carried a bull whip. She had an uncommon for ladies' fondness for hand-rolled cigarettes, and smoked openly! She became the first woman to ever be photographed while smoking. She straddled highbrow and lowbrow classes, rejecting the restrictive social codes associated with Victorian notions of “true womanhood.” Lola had the appearance of a Duchess.  As she spoke the royal illusion evaporated. Her vial mouth would have been considered to be unacceptable even in the wee hours of the city's most provocative men's smoking clubs.  Although they watched her every move, and even sometimes copied her style,  San Francisco's respectable classes never truly embraced Lola Montez, and she really felt it.   Lola was being courted by the married Sam Brannan. He was spoiling her in finer style than her Bavarian King Ludwig had ever provided her. Quite an impressive feat. Sam Brannan had an income of one thousand dollars a day, which is over 30,000 in 2020. He owned one hundred and seventy thousand acres, over 250 square miles where present day Los Angeles County lies. He lived well and lavishly, drinking and womanizing freely. Ann Eliza Brannan, his wife eventually divorced Sam, and when she did, she took half of everything he had. Lola moved on.  In San Francisco's early years, attending the theatre was a mostly male centered activity for they were the majority of the population. By 1853 it had become a highbrow sophisticated activity for audiences of both genders. Giving a place that countered the degrading, debilitating atmosphere of the times. The American Theatre had a rival theatre that was aptly named The San Francisco. One of the first original plays staged in the city was put on at the theatre San Francisco. "Who's Got the Countess?", a satire that profited off of Lola's deflating balloon. For two weeks, the burlesque packed the house. Some audience members accused the play of going too far. A writer for the Herald said the show was "an exceeding coarse and vulgar attack upon one who, whatever her faults and foibles may have been, has proved herself a noble-hearted and generous woman."   Lola Montez was performing onstage one evening in Sacramento, when someone laughed during the Spider Dance. Lola berated the audience and then stormed offstage. In the papers, it read that it was believed Montez had papered the house with her supporters. A letter challenging the editor to a duel soon surfaced, assertedly from Lola that read "You may choose between my dueling pistols or take your choice of a pill out of a pill box. One shall be poison and one shall not."   When Lola first sailed to San Francisco, on the same trip she met Brannan, she also met Patrick Purdy Hull. He was an irish reporter and the owner of the newspaper The San Francisco Whig. Lola said Patrick Hull could tell a story better than any other man she had known, and that was why she fell in love with him. On 1 July 1853 at the Mission Dolores, in a catholic ceremony, Lola Montez and Patrick Hull were married. Making Lola a US citizen. Lola did not want to live among the ridicule in the city, and instead bought a mine in a swelteringly hot ravine. The property was close to two of the richest mines in Nevada Country, California, Empire Mine and North Star Mine. She left San Francisco for the unincorporated town of Grass Valley.   Three years prior to her move to Grass Valley, the town held its first election under a large oak tree and one year later a building was constructed on the site. It was first used as the office for Gilmor Meredith's Gold Hill Mining Company, and then as a schoolhouse. Lola Montez purchased the building at 248 Mill St in Grass Valley and made it the home where her parrot, pet monkey, herself and Hull would live.     The town's disdain for the woman was proven by Grass Valley's Reverend when he spoke in a sermon denouncing Montez, warning the locals of the newest evil in town, calling the woman a hussy. Word passes to Lola, who was outraged at the statement and decided she would prove the quality of her act to the man herself. That night, she stormed into the Reverend's house where he was sitting to eat dinner with his wife. Lola Montez demanded the couple watch her full performance. She stomped and clapped and shook around his living room until he finally agreed she was in fact, a professional.  Montez ended up hated her life with her newest husband, and rather spent her days in Grass Valley with the young girl next door. Patrick Hull was tired of the parties and extremely spiteful of his wife's popularity. When a baron who was visiting from Europe attended one of Lola's social gatherings, he gifted her a grizzly bear to add to her exotic collection of pets. She named him Major. Patrick Hull was insanely jealous, and this final straw yanked a tear in the relationship that could not be mended. Hull sued Montez for divorce, naming a german doctor as the co-respondent. A few days later, the doctor was found in near-by hills, shot dead.   The neighbors, who ran a boarding house, had a daughter who was fascinated with the clearly unique Lola Montez and her private menagerie. It was not long before Lola was equally fascinated by the little girl, who was genuinely talented. She taught her to sing and dance and live wildly and allowed her to play in her extravagant costumes. Lola taught the young irish girl to sing ballads and perform ballet steps, fandangos, jig reels and Irish Highland flings from Lola's own childhood. The little blonde child's sense of rhythm surpassed Lola's, and she impressed the theatrical elite, strolling players and entertainers who came to the lavish parties Montez hosted. The unlikely pair rode bareback together, on a horse and pony. Despite the townspeople's opinion, the mother of the girl liked Lola and appreciated the time she spent with her daughter.  In the two years that Lola lived in Grass Valley, the California Gold Rush was ending, yet there was another gold mining rush in full swing. She hired Augustus Noel Folland, a married American actor as her new manager, hired a company of actors, and within two weeks, they were all sailing to Sydney Australia, aboard the Fanny Major. By the time they arrived, two months later, she had taken her new manager on as a lover. The following week, Lola's show opened at the Royal Victoria Theatre in a show titled 'Lola Montez in Bavaria'. That night, Montez fired some of the company, and they quickly sued her for damages.    As Lola and Folland were waiting to depart Sydney for Melbourne on board the Waratah, A sheriff's officer boarded the ship with a warrant of arrest, demanding she paid the sacked actors. Lola ran to her cabin, where she undressed. She sent out a note inviting the officer in to arrest her and drag her out. He left empty handed.     Audiences began to diminish at the Theatre Royal in Melbourne as Montez performed in her Bavarian role. Monttez made the decision to bring out her 'Spider Dance'. It was an instant hit for the men in the audience, again, Montez raising her skirts so high that the audience could see she wore no underclothing at all. The papers roared that her performance was 'utterly subversive to all ideas of public morality'. The theatre began to show heavy losses when respectable families ceased to attend the theatre. One even summoned the mayor of Melbourne to issue a warrant for her arrest for public indecency, but he refused the application. Months later in Ballarat, packed houses miners were showering gold nuggets at her feet yet again, the papers attacked her notoriety. Lola by now had a motto, “Courage---and shuffle the cards".  When Lola ran into the Ballarat Timeseditor Henry Seekamp at the United States Hotel, she retaliated by publicly horsewhipping him. Resulting in the rest of her tour being canceled. Folland and Montez quarreled excessively as they left for San Francisco on May 22 1856. On the journey near Fiji on the night of July 8th, Folland mysteriously fell overboard and drowned. Some believed he committed suicide after there fight, other believe he was pushed. No official investigation followed.    When Lola arrived back in the United States in 1856, she was different, subdued. Whatever happened on that ship, changed Lola Montez.Her previous lover from the past Alexandre Dumas once said 'She is fatal to any man who dares to love her'. Uncharacteristically, she sold her jewelry and gave the proceeds to Folland's children. She began using the remains of her bank account to give homeless and less fortunate women food, water and money. She decided to spread knowledge rather than performance, and began lecturing on her life, fashion, beauty, and famous women.  "I have known all the world has to give -- ALL!"  She began to write her book titled The Arts of Beauty, Or, Secrets of a Lady's Toilet: With Hints to Gentlemen on the Art of Fascinating.    Dance with all the might of your body, and all the fire of your soul, in order that you may shake all melancholy out of your liver; and you need not restrain yourself with the apprehension that any lady will have the least fear that the violence of your movements will ever shake anything out of your brains. I never claimed to be famous. Notorious I have always been.    She moved to New York, and reinvented herself once more. Embracing christianity, and with the Reverend Charles Chauncy Burr she arranged to deliver a series of moral lectures in Britain and America written by him. She returned to Ireland and did her final lecture in Dublin, “America and its people”, speaking in Limerick and Cork. Then returned to America in 1859. Later that year, the Philadelphia Press wrote Lola was iving very quietly up town, and doesn't have much to do with the world's people. Some of her old friends, the Bohemians, now and then drop in to have a little chat with her, and though she talks beautifully of her present feelings and way of life, she generally, by way of parenthesis, takes out her little tobacco pouch and makes a cigarette or two for self and friend, and then falls back upon old times with decided gusto and effect. But she doesn't tell anybody what she's going to do.   Within two years, Lola Montex began showing the tertiary effects of syphilis, the last contribution to the marriage from Patrick Hurdy Hull, and her body began to waste away. Lola, 39 years old, suffered a massive stroke and died alone in poverty on January 7th 1861. She is buried in the Greenwood cemetery, in Brooklyn. The marker simply reads “Mrs. Eliza Gilbert / Died 7 January 1861.”   You can read Lola's own writing, The Arts of Beauty, Secrets of a Lady's Toilet: With Hints to Gentlemen on the Art of Fascinating, Lectures of Lola Montez, Anecdotes of love, and Timeless Beauty: Advice to Ladies & Gentlemen. Lola's restored house  at 248 Mill St in Grass Valley is now a registered California Historical Landmark. Mount Lola, Nevada County and the Sierra Nevada's north of interstate 80 highest point at 9,148 feet, is named in her honour as well as two lakes you can find in the Tahoe National Forest. Named the Upper and Lower Lola Montez Lakes.   Now, let's talk about song lyrics, you many have heard this famous lyric.  "Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets".  "Whatever Lola Wants” was written by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross for the 1955 musical play Damn Yankees. The saying was inspired by Lola Montez. Or what about “Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl, With yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there", even Copacabana by Barry Manilow was inspired by our girl Lola.   In light of the BLM movement and the incredible change we are seeing, I would like to mention a quote said by Marian Anderson. "No matter how big a nation is, it is no stronger than its weakest people, and as long as you keep a person down, some part of you has to be down there to hold him down, so it means you cannot soar as you might otherwise."   Until recently, historians and the public have dismissed "conflict history," and important elements that are absolutely necessary for understanding American history have sometimes been downplayed or virtually forgotten. Lola constructed an identity as a “Spanish dancer” when Anglo Americans in California swayed between appreciating aspects of non-white cultures and rejecting them. If we do not incorporate racial and ethnic conflict in the presentation of the American experience, we will never understand how far we have come and how far we have to go. No matter how painful, we can only move forward by accepting the truth.  I am Andrea Anderson, thank you for taking the time to listen today,  let's meet again when we meet Lola's neighbor, the little irish girl in Grass Valley, next time, on “Queens of the Mines.    Queens of the Mines was written, produced and narrated by me, Andrea Anderson.  The theme song, In San Francisco Bay is by DBUK, You can find the links to their music, tour dates and merchandise, as well as links to all our social media and research links at queensofthemines.com

In July of 2020, soon after the murder of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police along with the murder of many other Black men and women, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors established an anti-racist County policy agenda. They also created an executive director of racial equity position for Los Angeles County with a charge of creating a strategic plan to eliminate structural racism and bias in the county, and appointed D'Artagnan Scorza to fill that role.Scorza is a long-time justice activist who views education as a tool for civic and social empowerment. After getting a bachelor's degree in the study of religion at UCLA, he joined the Navy and served in Iraq, then returned to UCLA to get a PhD in education, while launching a nonprofit called the Social Justice Learning Institute. He served the Inglewood Unified School District as president of the Board of Education, and is the current president of the UCLA Alumni Association. He also created the Urban Scholars program to train students to be social justice youth leaders.On Monday, November 8th, he'll join the UCLA Arts public discussion series “10 Questions,” responding to the question “How do we change?” In this episode of "Works In Progress," Scorza talks about his journey of growing up in Inglewood, studying at UCLA, serving in Iraq, creating educational opportunities for underserved students, and promoting anti-racist policies at the county level.

Bierkrug by Mumford Brewing, in collaboration with Our Mutual Friend Brewing Company, is a crisp and hoppy version of a German style Oktoberfest. Started by brothers Peter and Tom Mumford (no relation to the band), they started out homebrewing because their Dad was actually a homebrewer back in the '70s. After a couple of years into their own homebrewing, they began to think that they were doing something that would make a worthwhile endeavor in the real world and started planning their brewery. Although the number of breweries in Los Angeles County has grown considerably since they first opened, and with the San Diego area having over 100 operating craft breweries, they felt there was definitely an unmet need at the time for LA to have more craft beer. This week on FDB - vomiting buzzards, a fruity lawsuit, a desperate need to pee, and more! Now please kick back, and enjoy another sit down with Friends Drink Beer.
