David E. Jones, discoverer of the 5th Element of Fire Announces New 'Live' International Science Radio Show Called 'Galaxy of Science'
Now the many wonderful "unknown" home brew amateur American scientist and dedicated science hobbyist get their own radio "soap box" with their own new radio show, "Galaxy of Science" heard "Live" on the TalkStar Radio Network, International Satellite Radio, and many other independent radio stations across the USA like KCAA AM radio located near Hollywood California which created the Galaxy of Science radio show a few months ago.
October 28, 2005 -- David E. Jones, (D.E.J.) a freelance scientist and inventor, honored with several US patents, discoverer of the 5th Element of Fire and the creator of many life saving devices is still relatively unknown. But now D.E.J. has a new sideline hosting a revolutionary new science radio show called "Galaxy of Science". The "Galaxy of Science" radio show was recently created by KCAA RADIO 1050 AM in Loma Linda, California USA last spring.
Now "Galaxy of Science" has quickly expanded in the independent radio media market and is now carried by the independent, TalkStar Radio Network, the same network that produces the very informative Chuck Harder Show. D.E.J. has a line up of many well known science Icons to be on his show like televisions very popular science teacher "Mr.Wizard" to interview "Live" on his radio show. "Galaxy of Science" airs "live" each Saturday at 2:00 PM Eastern Time on many radio stations, International satellite radio, and on the Internet. But, being true to the cause, D.E.J. also interviews many unknown American inventors, scientists and thinkers who are left out of science research.
David proclaims the politics of all of the many government and industrial science research centers totally discriminates against people who are very good and creative at their science hobbies, people who are indeed very qualified in natural ability to participate in science research but are not able to get a job working in those science related jobs because they do not have the so called official credentials, an academic degree. D.E.J. calls this the "Inbreeding of the scientific mind pool".
"It's much like inbreeding of a species" D.E.J. said. "In nature, inbreeding of the genetic material can cause, in time, many abnormalities and weaknesses in the offspring of that practice".
The same is true with our curent job hiring practices in the science arena, says D.E.J., when we use only people who have gone to a certain school of thought, called the universities, and have studied the politically "accepted" theories, and have closed the doors completely on people who either have not been "brainwashed" with the current scientific dogma or discriminate against those who have academic credentials but publicly criticize the current scientific explanations and theories.
"Science is truly like a religion and is full of faith, excepted reasonings, explaining things we cannot see having certain ideas and explanations for phenomenon that cannot be proven." D.E.J. says there are too many wonderful minds being wasted that are badly needed to solve the many problems science has to overcome today.
D.E.J. says he is all for College education of course but science needs also the balance of the free thinkers who may have not obtained their academic standing. We need "both" involved with science and research, says D.E.J. What do Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, The Wright Brothers, George Eastman, Henry Ford, Bill Gates, Paul Allen, and many other great contributors in science advancement have in common? You might have guessed it. None of them had an academic degree. These great minds and science shakers of the 20th century had natural God given talents they used in a world that, "then", had the sense enough to allow them to easily participate in the science fields without the criticism "now popular" against people who do not have an academic degree."
Scientific Jobs should be given to the people who have real abilities to do the tasks required for the job". Both the skilled hobbyist and the academically achieved need to work in tandem to visualize the scientific problems from the different angles of thought to achieve a balanced theory. It is the ability to do the tasks that should define if a person is qualified to do the job that really counts in the end, say's D.E.J. What do they give the very rare person who breaks through this discrimative practice and barrier who becomes world famous? says D.E.J. An "honorary academic degree" yes, they give that person a degree without the person having to attend college. Now, they agree to honor and recognize that person for their God given, natural talent.

WHITE SPRINGS MEDIA announces a NEW FTA (Free To Air) Satellite TV Channel with Commercial Free Movies!
Portland, Oregon - Free to air satellite systems are designed to receive "in the clear" (unscrambled) digital TV signals direct from space by owners of small satellite dishes and receivers. White Springs Media spokesperson, Victor Ives, says, "At the present time, there are dozens of stations telecasting direct from space providing news, sports, networks, special interest programming, ethnic channels and foreign language channels that are available without a subscription. The selection is also constantly changing, with new channels coming online and some old ones going offline or changing their broadcast schemes".
The newest free to air service, direct from space, to the USA, Canada, Mexico and much of South America, is StarTV Network. The channel was created by the originators of TalkStar Radio Network, which is also operated by White Springs Media.
Movies without Commercial Interruption from SPACE
What's unique about this new channel is that it will present several movies each day with no commercial interruption. However, the channel will have commercials that will run between movies, previews, cartoons, interactive contests and entertainment features.
The daytime schedule will include Travel, Cooking, "How To" Shows and Life Style Programs.
Introduction to FTA
The concept of receiving Free-to-Air satellite signals dates back to the inception of satellite broadcasts in the mid 1970's and 1980's when large C/Ku Band satellite systems were a popular way of tapping into hundreds of available channels from the sky. An estimated three to five million big dish viewers in the USA and Canada got their TV this way. The downside to this system was the extremely large dish sizes and expensive equipment. Both these costs made satellite systems prohibitive for many people. Over the years, increasingly powerful commercial satellites and improvements in technology have brought prices and dish sizes down quite dramatically.
The mid 1990's saw the introduction of digital direct to home technology, which for the first time allowed main stream users to access a wide variety of channels not available via their local cable company, while enjoying incredible picture and sound quality. All or this is delivered via a far smaller dish. The small dish revolution caused the virtual extinction of the large dish industry.
The last several years have seen most broadcasters switch their broadcasts to digital, which allowed broadcasts to be compressed, allowing more channels per satellite transponder and also a superior picture and sound quality. Also, a common digital standard known as MPEG2-DVB has been adopted by many broadcasters, which allows all Free-to-Air satellite channels that use the DVB (Digital Video Broadcast) standard to be received from one satellite decoder.
Over the years, the Free-to-Air market has begun to see a significant comeback, primarily due to an abundance of programming not available anywhere else---such as international and foreign language channels as well as improved picture and sound quality. One industry source estimates that 45,000 small dish and receiver set-ups are sold each month. There is one user group, with over 130,000 member’s, using the internet to chat about the technology.

Broadcast vet likes the signals he sees from satellite radio!
The Business Journal of Portland - August 8, 2005 - His black hair is speckled with gray now and he's added a few pounds, but Victor Ives still reminds you of the Dracula-like character he played on local cult hit "Sinister Cinema" in the 1970s.
"I get recognized often, especially when I wear black," says Ives, a broadcast veteran who has spent time both behind the mike and as a manager of radio stations across the country.
Ives has a long history in broadcasting. He created "The Golden Age of Radio," an original vintage radio retrospective once heard on more than 300 stations. He also co-founded local Channel 32, which eventually affiliated with the Warner Bros. Network.
But it's what lies ahead that really excites him: his venture into satellite-delivered radio programming.
His startup company, White Springs Media, offers content and delivery to radio stations across the country via a satellite uplink, or teleport. The company's target market is the 4,000 small to medium-size stations that aren't owned by major conglomerates such as Clear Channel.
Smaller stations need programming in the wake of deregulation, which has led to consolidation and less competition, Ives says. Only a handful of parent companies now control programming.
"Deregulation has taken a lot of options from stations. It has killed innovation," says Ives, a Lake Oswego resident.
The company sends its programming 25,000 miles into space to a couple of different satellites. As it is beamed back to earth, any station with a receiver can get it. Individual listeners can stream programs from the company's Web site.
White Springs is based in White Springs, Fla., primarily because that's where the Federal Communications Commissioned granted a previous incarnation of the company a license to transmit unlimited channels of audio, video and data in 1991.
A small group of investors led by Ives purchased the company in 2003. Of the fewer than 20 similar stations across the country, White Springs may be the only one privately owned, Ives says. The proliferation of cell phone towers and other terrestrial transmitters means few, if any, similar facilities will be granted licenses in the future.
Popular shows, which are marketed under the Talkstar Radio Network, include Dr. Gabe Mirkin and Rob McConnell's "X" Zone. (McConnell is the Canadian version of Art Bell, Ives says).
Most of the broadcasters are independent contractors who license their shows to Talkstar. Wider distribution means more money for both the company and its on-air talent.
Stations generally buy programming by giving Talkstar ad time, which the company then repackages and sells. Stations can pick and choose specific programs or buy the entire package.
So far, Talkstar distributes programs to 65 stations in the United States and Canada. It needs a "critical mass" of about 250 to be profitable, Ives says.
Already, stations in Orlando, Fla.; Nashville, Tenn.; and Columbia, Mo., carry virtually everything Talkstar distributes. The company isn't on the air in Portland, though some programs originate from here.
As the company grows, it plans to launch American Health Talk Network, and Southern Gospel and Classical Music Network on a 24/7 basis to affiliates. TV also factors prominently in the future.
The business plan is based around providing reliable programming to local radio stations, but if a breakout hit arises, "we can throw away the business plan. We'll make a ton of money," Ives says.
"There's really only six or seven guys around the country right now deciding who's on the radio," he says. "There's a lot of talent out there that hasn't been able to find its way on the air. It creates a tremendous opportunity for us."
