Nicholas Corrin

Nicholas Corrin as a child was very curious, always asking questions. He still does. He wants to understand the deeper reasons for things being the way they are, not just respond to external “facts” as they may present themselves to us.

His training at school, both in Europe and the US, has been long and diverse, spanning literature, medicine, history, art and foreign languages. But most of all, he have learned what he knows from direct observation of nature. In a world of “specialists”, he seeks out the middle ground, the metaphorical vantage point from which the entire landscape can be surveyed. Only from here can the bigger picture be comprehended, and the various broken parts re-integrated. View Guest page

Now in her early 50s, Suzan is one of the original survivors of TSS, from the days of the Rely Tampon scandal. For those of you who don’t know about this scandal, in the 1980s, Proctor & Gamble introduced a "newer, better, and more absorbent" tampon, which they marketed heavily. During her teen years, tampons were Suzan’s menstrual product of choice for her heavy periods. At the age of 21, she received a solicitation from Proctor & Gamble. Would she be willing to try this new, more absorbent product? She did—eagerly. Suzan will tell listeners about what happened after she tried Rely Tampons. She will also tell us how—and why—she became a spokesperson for the not-for-profit organization; You Are Loved, what the organization is about, and why every woman should think twice before using another tampon.

In Kenya, students are not allowed entry into colleges or universities until they have completed a computer course. The cost of this course, per student, is approximately $620. So for the students at Mercy Home, a computer lab is the only chance of getting into higher education, unless they have a sponsor.
