Mars/Venus: Courting in 2018 #91

Episode 91 the topic: In this discussion we talk about how people Court in 2018. Monday September 17, 2018

Courting https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Courting

Courting is the experience of developing a deep relationship with someone, with a view to seeing if marriage is right for the couple, without the complexity of sexual intimacy being part of that relationship. Enabling each to find out everything about each other, developing unconditional love and trust, with out rushing things, to decide if this really is the person you want to spend the rest of your life with.
They enjoyed their carefree courting days, long walks in the sunshine, talking, getting to know each other in great depth, enjoying each others company as true friends.

Dr. Fasi Khurram-

First, accept the fact that no press release can do the tremendous accomplishments of Dr. Fasi Khurram justice. Fasi is a noted producer, line producer and upcoming director for a diverse array of low budget movies. Fasi isn’t just a personality; he’s a force of nature.

As CEO of AWAAZ Productions Inc. USA and to further the cause of diversity, Fasi created World Film Festival & WFF Signature Awards. This festival and awards ceremony is a national non-profit composed of a number of voting writers, directors, actors and cinematographers, that acknowledges the strides made in the industry towards diversity. Fasi has been invited by & proposed by Dame Munni Irone to merge her Art 4 Peace Awards with the World Film Festival & WFF Signature Awards to make a complete package with more diversified categories for the participants from the world and from different diversified talents or skills which he will give a World Platform to. This includes placing Hollywood, Bollywood, Chinawood, Latinwood and Nollywood communities under one roof or one platform. Fasi has been working closely with Hollywood, Bollywood, Tollywood, and Kaliwood celebrities as well as as celebs from Nepal, but not limited to the international ones such as Chinese, Russian, Afghani, Vietnamanese, and Mexican celebs. Fasi believe that a good team always bring success and he developed the relationships with his consultants as his team who have more than from 10 to 30 years of experience in production and distribution nationally and internationally who constantly advise and support him on every step he takes. Yet throughout his illustrious career in a very challenging and competitive field, Fasi has always retained his heart of gold. Even when growing up in India, the young man was known for his caring heart. and He excelled at soccer and started playing since his childhood and later played in college and in major tournaments at the national level in India by representing Andhra Pradesh in 1994.

Also Fasi has earned an MD from the Russian State Medical University (Moscow- Russia), was Executive Director of Marketing for Clegg and Credico Marketing Company, founded a telecommunications company in Canada, and even hosted radio shows in Silicon Valley and launched his own AWAAZ Radio Station APP which has multiple diverse communities 24/7 radio channels to promote there culture and tradition. AWAAZ Productions represents the culmination of his dream to create eco- system in the entertainment industry and also create an opportunity platform to give all cultures a voice, which, translated into Hindi/Urdu, is “AWAAZ”- means (VOICE – Inner – Voice). Because he became convinced early on that the entertainment industry needed more positive role models, positive messages and esteem-building organizations, Fasi has always been a man with a mission by the grace of god and he always say thank you to his family, friends and community-at-large who support him indefinitely.

Guest: Linda Marks Singer/Songwriter www.lindamarksmusic.com

ABOUT LINDA MARKS: http://www.lindamarksmusic.com/page10/index.html

As a small child, Linda Marks, was passionate about music and felt a magnetic pull to pianos and all things musical. Her first word was piano, and she was placed in a Longy School of Music experimental program for gifted and talented kids at age 3. She started writing music in grammar school, and wrote the 8th grade graduation song. Linda holds a degree in Music with honors and distinction from Yale University, where she co-founded Something Extra, Yale’s 3rd women’s a capella singing group, as a 17 year old freshman. She ran Café Calhoun at Yale, and both sang and produced musical shows. In the 1980’s, Linda performed in the Boston acoustic music scene and sang and co-wrote songs with Lisa Wexler. She appeared on “Music America” with Ron Della Chiesa, and released a tape of original music, “Dreams and Themes” in 1983. She founded and ran the Boston Arts Roundtable, a group of musicians and other artists who gathered for camaraderie and produced multimedia concerts.

The Women In Music Gathering

The Women In Music Gathering is an intergenerational artist-alliance of women in music: singer/songwriters and performing musicians, with the primary goals of collaboration and support, extending to both personal and professional aspects of being a woman in music.

Artists for the Environment.

Diane Cameron Elam founded this project, and I hope you get to talk with her too! A song I wrote for my 2019 In Grace album, called Enough, which was written in response to the teardown epidemic happening in my neighborhoods (both where and I live and work) was selected to be part of this project. I was also interviewed for the Boston Globe for an article on teardown, and my song will be referenced on an article that will be published in October.
