Xin nian kuai le! Happy New Year of the Dragon from One Cell One Light Radio! This week, Dr. Staninger welcomes two guests to discuss the astrological importance of this special year.
In her first hour, Dr. Staninger will be joined by Dr. Kathleen I. Kimball, or Dr. KIK, Feng Shui geomancer and expert in world art as they discuss how 2012 is the Year of the Water Dragon and its impact on our lives. In Chinese astrology, the zodiac is divided by 12 different animal signs, each representing a particular group of years (as opposed to the near-monthly divides in Western astrology). Every 60 years comes the Water Dragon, with 2012 being the first since 1952. In Chinese element theory, water produces wood, which signifies growth and is the natural element of the dragon. The dragon governs east/southeast, wealth accumulation & the hours of 7 a.m. – 9 a.m. Read the rest of this entry
Throughout history, new technology has brought a sense of wonderment and fear to those unfamiliar with it. In post-Civil War America, the steam-powered engine brought the possibility of speedier travel, but also the fear of cultural pollution brought about by this ease of movement. Currently, technology changes so rapidly that it often goes unnoticed – incremental improvements to products we already own don’t alert the deep-rooted fear of the unknown that we all share. But with a the practical application of a once-theoretical nanotechnology rapidly becoming reality, those fears are once more rearing their ugly head. But, are they warranted?

This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Staninger welcomes back to the program Dr. Zhong Lin (ZL) Wang, head of a leading group in nanoscience and nanotechnology at the Georgia Institute of Technology; and Michael Edward, who continues to be involved in the research into the health and toxicity problems following the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil disaster, to discuss the practical applications of nanotechnology remediation and cleanup of toxic substances in the environment.
After the April 2010 explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil drilling platform, nearly five million gallons of crude oil flowed unabated into the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, affecting the coastal waters and beaches of Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi. Additionally, the tourism and fishing industries of these areas were negatively affected, and the wildlife and ecosystems decimated. Through current methods, the oil was deemed too dispersed throughout the waters of the Gulf to clean up, and the area will forever be polluted with this oil. However, there is current research into the practical application of nanotechnology to be used as a method of cleanup.
Using similar, yet inverted, application of nanotech as is currently used on stain-resistant fabrics, highly porous materials could be combined with a practical device similar to a bedsheet to be placed in a polluted area such as the Gulf and absorb oil molecules, making cleanup much more fast and effective. While a technology such as this is still years away from application, once it is cheap and abundant enough, this could make a disaster such as an oil spill much more manageable.
When considering other disasters – such as the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant and the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina – nanotech could play an important role in early detection of radiation and mold, as they offer the potential of highly sensitive and highly remote sensors.
As with any new technology, there is always risk of side-effects and a fear of misuse. However, with proper education and controlled implementation, in years to come, nanotechnology may be as common as a television or as antiquated as a steam-powered locomotive.
Join Dr. Staninger and her guests this week as they discuss the environmental applications and risks of nanotechnology on One Cell One Light Radio!

Now that we’ve reached the calendar year of 2012, much attention has been paid to the upcoming winter solstice in December as a signifier of a great change. Due mostly to the end of the long-cycle count of the Mayan calendar, December 21, 2012 has sent people into a frenzy of prediction and postulation in trying to determine why exactly the Mayans stopped their calendar on this date and what it means. While some believe that the Mayans saw the coming of the end of the world, many believe this is a false reading, as there is no historical evidence to support that this was the Mayans’ theory. What those who are perhaps less pessimistic believe is that 2012 will bring about a monumental change in our collective consciousness and that our perception of the world will never be the same again. While the debate rages on, there are perhaps items that have held the answer all along. Read the rest of this entry
GUEST: Lloyd Pye, Director of the Starchild Project
(We regret that the audio for this show is unavailable.)
Are we alone in the universe? That question has plagued mankind for thousands of years, and despite the numerous scientific advancements that we’ve made in the last century, we still have no proof – definitive or speculative – that non-human intelligent life exists elsewhere besides our world. Proof of extra-terrestrial life would change our world, our thinking and our way of life entirely. But what if it does exist?
This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Staninger welcomes Lloyd Pye, former Hollywood screenwriter and current Director of the Starchild Project, a research organization that has been investigating the Starchild Skull since February of 1999. It is his belief that the skull provides irrefutable evidence that life of extra-terrestrial origins has lived – and died – on our planet, as recently as 900 years ago.
Discovered in a Mexican cave around 1930, the skull was part of a larger skeleton found by a teenage girl who had gone on a hike while visiting family. It was her intent to bring this skeleton – as well as a more plainly human skeleton found next to it – back with her to El Paso. Unfortunately, she hid the bones that night and a rainstorm washed them away. The girl was able to recover both skulls, though slightly damaged, but the rest of the skeletons were lost.

Happy New Year from One Cell One Light Radio! Dr. Hildy will be kicking off the new year with a very special discussion about mesogens and the technology of building brain chips.
As part of an ongoing conversation about the increased use of nanotechnology and the dangers it can pose, Dr. Staninger will welcome private investigator Michael DiMatteoto discuss the potential of the misuse of this technology to control susceptible individuals through mesogens.

Mesogens are the fundamental unit of a liquid crystal that induces structural order in the crystals, and can be man-made advanced bionanotechnology/biosensors. Through her practice, Dr. Staninger has found these units in a sample taken from a case study. The sample was from a calcified material taken from the patient’s ear canal – a material that contained silicon. Silicon and like compounds are often used in the making of nanoparticles.The subject of this case study has also employed Michael DiMatteo to investigate the origins of this substance and how it came to end up in the subject’s body. Mr. DiMatteo has worked closely with Dr. Staninger on this case and their findings may be surprising – and shocking. Joining them in the discussion of this case study and the mesogens found inside of the individual will be Dr. Rima Laibow, Medical Director of the Natural Read the rest of this entry
