"wanting to work harder, do better, be better. I feel progression is the key to happiness. However, I am fortunate enough to be in an industry where everyone I come across is a motivational powerhouse. Even more than that, seeing people that have asked me for advice, actually apply it and get results that have not just changed the way they look, but improved their health with conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure, has been one of the biggest drivers of the work I have put in lately."

Will Allen, Director of Holy Hell, a documentary covering his life inside an eastern based spiritual cult, based on 22 years of his archival footage.
Will Allen starting making films in southern CA as a teenager. After earning his film degree from Southern Methodist University, in Texas, he ended up living inside a guru-based society for 22 years, where he continuously made films about the world in which he lived. 
STORY
HOLY HELL premiered at Sundance and is an inside look at a spiritual sect, formed in West Hollywood and Austin, that dramatically imploded after 20 years  and then secretly resurfaced in Oahu.
After graduating from film school in 1985, Will Allen was a spiritual seeker who joined this community of like minded people led by a gay, charismatic actor from Venezuela. With camera in hand, Allen documented 20 years of life inside the community, as the group's idealism begins to unravel and revelations about the nature of the leader are brought to light. With unprecedented and unparalleled access, HOLY HELL is a descent into a world no one, not even its participants past or present, could have imagined. The final scenes of the film take place in Kailua, where the group is currently active recruiting new members daily.

“Vaxxed” investigates how the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), concealed and destroyed data on their 2004 study that showed a link between the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine and autism.  The information was revealed by a whistle-blower inside the CDC, senior research scientist William Thompson. Dr. Thompson has alleged that during the study highly significant increases in the risk of autism were found in several distinct populations and the CDC did everything from kicking children off the study to throwing data out in order to cover it up.  Approximately one million children have developed autism since this fraudulent study claimed that the MMR was not responsible.  https://www.facebook.com/wcobmlive/videos/1068027456616163/

Orlando massacre

Guest 1:  Lauren Meister - West Hollywood Mayor

Guest 2:  Professor Junaid Ahmadhmad Director of the Center for Global Dialogue - Currently in Virginia, Ahmad is based in Lahore. Professor Ahmed is also a muslim and has also been secretary general of JUST International, the International Movement to Create a Just World. He is on the faculty of advanced studies at the University of Management Technology and on the faculty of law and policy at the Lahore University of Management Sciences.


"The Orlando mass shooting is a tragic atrocity that is, at the very least, partially attributable to the multiple fundamentalisms spawned by the political maneuverings of Washington and its 'moderate' fundamentalist allies in the Muslim world, particularly Saudi Arabia. While it is still too soon to determine the veracity of the narratives around the shooter's motives and recent behavior, even if we accept some version of it - it is a tragic amalgamation of the systemic pathologies of our time: fundamentalist-inspired hatred of the 'other', in this case homosexuals, and militarized, terrorizing violence, conducted wholesale by states and retail by private, non-state actors. Whether or not mental illness contributed to this shooting, it is incontrovertible that these tragic cases have nothing to do with religion per se, but deeper contemporary processes that have fueled violence at home and abroad, with guns, bombs, and drones that have caused countless, nameless victims, in places like Iraq and Afghanistan, becoming so commonplace. 

    "In addition, it's important to remember that while conservative 'orthodoxies' in all religions, including in Islam, may be homophobic, Muslim thought, practice and behavior has become much more intolerant of homosexuality because of two principal reasons: a) imposition and importation of Western homophobia since the beginning of Western colonialism, with contemporary Muslim homophobic rhetoric reflecting less of Islamic tradition, and far more of Western Victorian and Protestant Fundamentalist vitriol, and b) Washington's favorite ally in the Muslim world, Saudi Arabia, advancing a fundamentalist violent contempt for anyone not subscribing to their Wahhabi puritanism. Islamophobic and, indeed, homophobic politicians and pundits in the U.S. will conveniently ignore these two factors when pontificating on yet another example, for them, of 'Islamic terrorism.'"
