Imus in the Morning 

June 1st, 1968 - March 29th, 2018


Deirdre's Corner

Let's Protect Our Kids and Our Planet: My life’s work, and that of The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center, has been devoted to identifying and reducing toxic environmental exposures to protect and improve children’s health. And yet, a report released just last year from the World Health Organization (WHO) implicated unhealthy and polluted environments as causing a quarter of all deaths in children under five years old.  

Exclusive Interview: Deirdre Imus Is on a Mission to Save Our Kids and Remove Toxins - Alpha Rising spent time with Deirdre Imus and got an exclusive tour of the Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center at Hackensack University Medical Center in NJ. Bottom Line: The more we remove poisonous toxins, the more we save our kids' lives.

Deirdre's Book Pick Of The Week

Methylation Diet and Lifestyle by Dr. Kara Fitzgerald & Romilly Hodges, MS, CNS - The “dance of methylation” extends far beyond supplementing with B12 and methylated folate. Indeed, long term outcome studies using this approach are lacking, and research suggests caution is advised with regard to imbalanced hypermethylation. However, much can be done to safely support methylation balance.

Deirdre's Dish Picks

 

Easy Memorial Day Potato Salad: Recipe and photo courtesy of Ellen Troyer and the Biosyntryx Staff - This coming long weekend will also be the official start of the summer 2018 picnic season. Our Biosyntrx staff agreed that this is their favorite 'go to'  potato salad recipe since it’s easy, safe, and the flavors compliment other picnic foods without overpowering.

The Imus Ranch Foundation

With the closing of The Imus Ranch For Kids with Cancer, The Imus Ranch Foundation was formed to donate 100% of all donations previously devoted to The Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer to various other charities whose work and missions compliment those of the ranch. The initial donation from The Imus Ranch Foundation was awarded to Tackle Kids Cancer, a program of The HackensackUMC Foundation and the New York Giants.  In addition, once the Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer is sold, 100% of those funds will be contributed to The Imus Ranch Foundation.

Tony Powell

What do you get when you cross the charisma of Eddie Murphy, the irreverence of Chris Rock, and the Old School charm of Bernie Mack? I have no idea, however, I do know that when you add a quick wit, great storytelling ability, and the performance chops of a seasoned pro you have Tony Powell.

Like someone getting chocolate in your peanut butter or you getting peanut butter in their chocolate, accidents have a way of discovering pure artistry. While attending the University of Virginia, Tony Powell was asked to calm an unruly audience. Suddenly all those summer afternoons listening to Richard Pryor, and Bill Cosby albums seemed to have purpose. With his trademark quick wit, and clever impressions, Tony released the comedic genie trapped within to the delight of the unruly audience. Who knew at that moment in time that Powell was about to embark on a comedic odyssey that would lead to appearances on The Chris Rock Show , NBC's Showtime at the Apollo and two appearances on A&E's Comedy on the Road. Powell has made several appearances on The Comedy Channel. Powell has also opened for celebrity musical groups such as The Ojays and the Whispers. He has worked as the studio warm-up act for Bill Cosby and Nickelodeon's Keenan and Kel show. Since December of 2007 Tony has brought his comedic talents, as both a writer and performer, to the nationally syndicated radio program "Imus In The Morning;" heard weekdays from 6-10 AM EST and simulcast on the Fox Business Network..

As an actor, he has recently appeared on several national television commercials (Visa, Dawn Detergent, Ritz Crackers, Snuggle Brand Fabric Softener). Tony was also the radio voice of ''Mr. Chill'' for Miller Genuine Draft and the U.S. Army reserves. Powell’s voice talents have also been featured in national radio spots for Fila and Heineken. Powell is a college campus favorite as well. He has performed at over a hundred colleges and universities.

Growing up in East New York, Brooklyn, survival requires one of three things; you either have to be a great fighter, fleet of foot, or be a whole lotta funny. Let's just say, Tony Powell ain't no Ali or Usain Bolt, he is however, a whole lotta funny.
