Dan J. Kroll
For 23 years, Dan J Kroll has been at the forefront on online news and entertainment. In March 1995, he launched one of the first Internet sites devoted to all-things-soap-opera called soapcentral.com. The site remains the premiere destination for soap fans.
Several years later, Dan became the first Internet-only journalist to be granted press credentials to a national Emmy event. Dan has been a Red Carpet fixture conducting awards show interviews and covering premieres since 1999. In January 2010, Dan expanded the soapcentral.com brand by hosting a weekly Internet radio program called Soap Central Live on the Voice America Talk Radio Network. Five years later, the show expanded its focus and was rebranded Kroll Call. Through a variety of games, including the ever-popular $250 Soapyramid, Soap Central Live raised over $25,000 for soap stars’ favorite charities. The soapcentral.com web site has raised an addition $250,000 for charitable works and causes, making it the most philanthropic of all soap-related web sites. While it seems that online success has come easy to Dan, he didn’t set out to conquer the Internet. From the age of 6, Dan knew that he wanted to be a doctor — and even attended Temple University with the sole intention of becoming a doctor. However, as it often does, fate intervened.
Long before becoming a Red Carpet interviewer and popular radio host, Dan starred as the zookeeper in a second-grade play, a role that was written specifically for him. Flash forward a couple — okay a couple of dozen — years and Dan has several reef tanks in and around his office with six, er five… let’s just say an ever-changing number of fish. He’s a Pisces, so that probably explains the affinity for fish. He is also parent to a little white bunny that showed up outside his garage one day, and a plethora of wild critters that make cameo appearances in his back yard. View Guest page

Mark Warnock, is a Molecular Hydration Specialist and a Certified Shiatsu Therapist Located in Southern California, in the Pasadena area, Mark Warnock is a very knowledgeable individual, especially where quality drinking water is concerned. Mark, as a young teenager, followed his father who was stationed in Okinawa - In the1970's there was a severe drought on the island and water had to be rationed, as the water supply lines were regularly turned off, we had to store water when it was available, drinking water sporadically available from the pluming had to be treated; boiling the H2O for at least 5 min or adding Clorox to the water was required before drinking . Honestly, one or 2 swallows of the Clorox mixture and you are not thirsty anymore. From that moment Mark realized chlorinated water was to be avoided at all costs; being overdosed with the chlorine in Japan made him ultra sensitive. Delighted to be re-stationed stateside and again have ample access to well water, Mark's search for cleaner sources of water started. He began to study the water that was available to him: tap, bottled, distilled, spring, well water, a large variety of different filter systems, he tried reverse osmoses systems, Ultraviolet Water Purifiers, Electronic Water Conditioners, and then in 2004 he purchased the Electron-4 a $3,000 water distilling system made with surgical stainless steel which was presented to him as "The Best". At the 2 year mark with the Electron-4, distilled water system which created an extra $300 monthly electric bill, he discovered that distilled water is devoid of minerals; his nails got soft and his immune system was compromised; he was prone to chronic colds and sinuous infections.
