And that is a doula: a woman who provides emotional and physical support to a mother in her childbearing year. FreeSpirit Birth is the name of her doula practice and her intention is to awaken her community - one with a less than desirable set of birth statistics - to a very simple, tried & true way to improve birth outcomes and emotional satisfaction.

The Birth, Death, and Rebirth of Tiki

BY TIM "SWANKY" GLAZNER
@ VOL 25 ON NOV 16, 2017

Tim "Swanky" Glazner brings awareness to the distinctive tiki bar style. The Tiki bar was born during the Prohibition and reached its zenith in the 50's and 60's, with bars and restaurants in every major city in America. It has put its style stamp on everything from motels to bowling alleys.
 
Due in part to the high levels of secrecy around its original cocktail recipes and the changing times, by the turn of the century it had nearly vanished. Today, thanks to a fervent band of urban archeologists, new Tiki bars in the vein of the mid-century originals are opening every month.
