Merle Exxon Valdez Survivor (1938 - 2011)
was a female general foreman during the EVOS beach cleanup in 1989, which turned into 20 years
of extensive health deterioration for her and many other workers. Dr. Riki Ott visited her in 2007 to explain about the toxic
spraying on the beaches. Dr. Ricki Ott also informed her that Exxon's medical records and the reports that surfaced in litigation
brought by sick workers in 1994, had been sealed from the public, making it impossible to hold Exxon responsible for their
actions. Dr. Riki Ott has devoted her life to taking control from corporations and giving it back to the public.

Mike Founder Enrichment.com is President and Editor-in-Chief of Enrichment.com, an idea envisioned on a walk down a Soho street
in Manhattan during the winter of 1990. Within this vision was the sense that as the world converges technologically, so is
the time also ripe for a convergence and new integration between people, races, genders, religions and cultures...coming together
and finding common ground through dialogue and heart-felt expression. The time is also fertile for increased opportunities
for human fulfillment, and the growth of human potentiality - through service to the Earth and humanity, vocational/entrepreneurial
growth, and creative/ spiritual insight, growth and self-development. Schwager authored many business plans that described
the Enrichment theme within various media formats. Enrichment.com is the culmination of this process.

Karen Painter is from Annapolis, Maryland
– the sailing capital of the world. As a teenager she began
dabbling in acrylics and painted sailboats, landscapes
and birds. Her painting then abruptly ended with the beginning
of college and careers including accounting, real estate,
running her own retail establishment and even working as a paranormal investigator
and psychic medium. She did sign up for
oil painting as a college elective on one occasion, but
during the class turned out sheet after sheet of brown mud. Quoted "If
it weren’t for fast drying acrylic paints, I simply would not be
able to paint." Twenty seven years later in 2011 she found
herself with some time on her hands. She hunted down her acrylic paints
and after all of those years found to her surprise
that they were still good! She started by painting Arabian horses as her
family had once raised those when she was
a kid. For Sharp it was like old times again. She quickly took over their families
sunroom and began to think of it as her real painting studio.

D.B. Actor was born November 14, 1961, in Shoreham, New
York. He has two sisters and one brother. Before he thought about acting he wanted to be a professional baseball player, but
a motorcycle accident ended that dream. He graduated from Tulane University. He has made four theater appearances on both

out with small roles, gradually increasing the size of his parts as he began appearing in mini-series and TV shows. He has

Eight Men Out (1988) and a baseball coach in Hard Ball (2001). He has appeared in science-fiction movies including Fire in
the Sky (1993) and he appealed to female fans in the romantic The Cutting Edge (1992), in which he played an ex-hockey layer

with his film Dirt Nap (2006/II), which has been a big hit at film festivals. He is married and has two children.
Tenpenny, Sherry Dr. Vacination Critic and Advocate for Change
as a member of the prestigious
National Speaker’s Association, is an outspoken advocate for free choice in healthcare, including the right to refuse
vaccination. As an internationally known speaker, she is highly sought after for her ability to present scientifically
sound information regarding vaccination hazard and warnings that are rarely portrayed by conventional medicine. Most
importantly, she offers hope through her unique treatments offered at OsteoMed II for those who have been vaccine-injured.
"We have been programmed by the medical community and the media to believe that everyone – children and adults
-- will become sick, and likely die, unless they are vaccinated. This explains why not vaccinating can be unfathomable to
new parents who are unreasonably terrified of what were considered normal childhood illnesses only a few decades ago."

William Professor Fellow to the American Academy for the Advancement of Science, Professor
Emeritus William A. Tiller, of Stanford University’s Department of Materials Science, spent 34 years in academia after
9 years as an advisory physicist with the Westinghouse Research Laboratories. He has published over 250 conventional scientific
papers, 3 books and several patents. In parallel, for over 30 years, he has been avocationally pursuing serious experimental
and theoretical study of the field of psychoenergetics which will very likely become an integral part of "tomorrow’s"
physics. In this new area, he has published an additional 100 scientific papers and four seminal books.
"For the last four hundred years, an unstated assumption of science is that human intention cannot affect
what we call "physical reality." Our experimental research of the past decade shows that, for
today's world and under the right conditions, this assumption is no longer correct. We humans are much more than we think
we are and Psychoenergetic Science continues to expand the proof of it." - William A. Tiller
