Mick Dawson Special Guest on It’s A Question Of Balance with Ruth Copland Saturday August 9th 9-10 PM

This week I’m pleased to be interviewing Mick Dawson - former Royal Marines Commando, film-maker, sailor, adventurer and motivational speaker. Having seen active service in the Falklands War at the age of 17 and then again in the Middle East, Mick followed his military career with the pursuit of his lifelong passion for the ocean becoming a professional sailor skippering luxury yachts across the globe. Simultaneously he was looking for exciting challenges. These have taken the form of epic rows across the world’s greatest oceans. He has rowed the Atlantic and is the world record holder with Chris Martin for rowing the North Pacific. Mick Dawson and Chris Martin are the first and only people ever to successfully row almost 7,000 miles across the North Pacific Ocean from Choshi in Japan into San Francisco. Armed with his camera Mick filmed the whole endeavour and Discovery Channel subsequently produced a hugely popular documentary of this epic voyage. When he’s not working defending shipping from Somali pirate attacks, Mick can be found on the ocean he loves skippering yachts or presenting motivational talks to inspire others to follow their dreams.

Is there such a thing as a ‘just war’?

This Saturday August 2nd 8-9 PM on It’s A Question Of Balance with Ruth Copland we consider - What constitutes a ‘just war’? The Indian epic, the Mahabharata, offers one of the first written discussions of a 'just war'. Five ruling brothers discuss if the suffering caused by war can ever be justified. They consider proportionality (chariots cannot attack cavalry, only other chariots; no attacking people in distress); just means (no poisoned or barbed arrows); just cause (no attacking out of rage); and fair treatment of captives and the wounded. They also hope last minute efforts to reconcile differences could avoid war. Thousands of years later these considerations still apply. Is there such a thing as a just war and if so, what are the criteria? What do you think? Join us on Saturday!

Antonique Rivela Special Guest on It’s A Question Of Balance with Ruth Copland Saturday August 2nd 9-10 PM

This week I’m pleased to be interviewing 18-year-old songwriter and recording artist Antonique Rivela. Plagued with a stutter from birth, at six years old Antonique was also diagnosed with dyslexia, a speech impediment, and an ambidextrous ability. Despite these challenges, by the age of seven Antonique was already reading poetry and writing songs. A victim of bullying, Antonique looked to her heroes Albert Einstein, Walt Disney and Britney Spears to inspire her. Currently, Antonique is working hard on her debut album Silhouette, which will focus on mirroring the obstacles she has faced in the past. In addition, Antonique is in the works to form a movement and organization for fellow disabled individuals and victims of bullying called Lifelinez. Antonique is also attending college to get her bachelors degree in marketing. For more info and to hear previous shows visit www.itsaquestionofbalance.com
