    • Richie Hardcore on The Nutters Club

      Filmed before The Nutters Club radio show went live to air, host Mike King and Dr David Codyre talk to kickboxing champ and community worker Richie Hardcore. Here's a story on Richie from Stuff.co.nz's Auckland Now. Among the tattoos on Richie Hardcore's forearm is a song lyric in thick black capital letters that reads: P.M.A ‘TIL I'M D.O.A. PMA or Positive Mental Attitude sums up the philosophy Mr Hardcore brings to everything he does, including his work as a Community Action Youth and Drugs facilitator for Auckland Council. He describes the Ministry of Health initiative as a "fence at the top of the cliff" intended to reduce the harm to young people and families caused by illicit drugs and alcohol. "Off the top of my head, one under 25-year-old a week dies from alcohol-related causes, that's not to say they drink so much they die but it can be by car accidents or violence, which is a real shame," he says. There are CAYAD units in Central, South and West Auckland and each has its own location-specific objectives. Within the Central Auckland unit, Mr Hardcore's focus is on tertiary institutions and the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. One of the key outcomes of the CAYAD initiative is creating informed community debate and discussion with a fact-based approach rather than leaning on anecdotal evidence. "We try and underpin all our projects on research and not opinion, which I think gives it a great strength," he says. "We don't preach abstinence, because abstinence is not something we want people to do. Look at prohibition, that didn't work in Chicago. Al Capone was making a lot of money out of alcohol. And it's the same with drugs." Mr Hardcore admits growing up with an alcoholic father gave him a negative perception of alcohol early in life and he never really got into the drinking culture. For the last five years he has identified as "straight-edge", meaning he does not drink alcohol or take drugs. "I grew up as a pretty angry and sad kid, and when I got into [punk rock] music I found it was a positive way to channel that. "For me PMA isn't pretending to be happy, it's about finding positive ways to deal with the hardships life can throw us . . ." Mr Hardcore is active on social media, hosts a radio show on 95bFM and presents a segment called PMA All Day on TVNZ's youth channel, U. "I try and use that as a cool way to talk about a subject that is often misrepresented as your parents telling you what to do," he says. "But it's not about being uncool, it's about not wrecking your life."

          Here is a review/recap of the two weeks the LORD JESUS granted HIS unworthy slaves of laboring in the Mt , Vernon area of Washington State, including a day spent in Vancouver, BC. This was the first time United In CHRIST JESUS has been granted the blessing of laboring in Washington State. During the two weeks...the LORD opened many doors for the Word to go forth...to have the LORD JESUS name exalted - lifted high. Blessed be the name of the LORD. It was also the first time UCJ has labored at a Planned Parenthood where they kill the unborn children.. This laboring occurred in Tacoma, WA side by side with several sisters who have been faithful to labor week end week out for the glory of GOD and the lives of the unborn children. UCJ wants to give special and heart felt thanks to brother Mike King and his wife Ramona for opening their home as my host. Brother Mike has been such an encouragement to me. The fellowship has been so very sweet...praise the LORD for HIS unfailing love. Sister Ramona has also been an encouragement. I have seen the LORD working in their lives...blessed be the name of the LORD! I pray the video exalts and glorifies our LORD JESUS and brings you to worship/praise as you hear of his grace being manifested. Glory to GOD! Worthy is the LAMB!

                Widely praised for his efforts in raising awareness of depression, former All Black John Kirwan shares his experience of the illness. The All Black legend and unofficial patron of The Nutters Club features in a one-hour special. In the one-hour episode, he talks to host Mike King and psychiatrist Dr David Codyre about his writing, understanding and living with depression and how wellness is something we need to work at every day. "Help, great word. I reached out for help and what it did was amazing. It took a while; some understanding, some personal discovery and some pain," says Kirwan. Kirwan played 96 games for the All Blacks and was part of the 1987 team that won the Rugby World Cup title on home soil. This year he returns to the Rugby World Cup, but not as a player - as coach for Japan. Check out another side of a rugby legend as Kirwan shares his story on The Nutters Club

                    10 years deep- the biggest, best, and most long-standing video talent search in skiing is back and better than ever! Superunknown X brought in over 100 entries from around the world, as the hungriest and most talented up-and-comers in the game try to follow in the footsteps of previous winners and make a name for themselves in the ski video scene. Every year since the inception of the Superunknown contest the talent pool has gotten deeper and the skills, style, and creativity of the entrants has increased exponentially. We claim it every year, but to say that this year's judging process was the most difficult yet would be an understatement. We polled the entire Level 1 staff and our athletes. We watched, re-watched, and watched submissions again and again. We scored entries, re-scored 'em, and then sought some more feedback from our crew. In fact it was so trying that we decided to mix up the awards process and give a shout out to 20 semi-finalists who very well could have Finalists… it was THAT close. That being said, props and congrats to Mike King for being selected as one of the Superunknown X Semi-Finalists! About Superunknown Superunknown was started in 2003 to help discover and expose the best unsponsored up and coming talent in the game, and give them a shot at making a name for themselves outside of the traditional competition scene. The first contest of its kind, entrants were asked to submit a simple promo video showcasing their skills, talent, bag of tricks, style, and personality. No résumés, no still photos, no essay questions (answers on the official entry form are not judged and used for reference purposes only!)- just pure unfiltered video action. The most impressive skier each year took the title and was awarded a chance to film with Level 1 and given a foot in the door of the industry. Now in its 10th year, Superunknown is one of the biggest and best open video contests in action sports with over 100 annual entries coming in from top ams and the best undiscovered talent around the world. Past Superunknown winners include: 2004 Superunknown I Corey Vanular 2005 Superunknown II JD Zicat 2006 Superunknown III Michael Clarke 2007 Superunknown IV Tom Wallisch 2008 Superunknown V Jon Brogan 2009 Superunknown VI Niklas Eriksson 2010 Superunknown VII Logan Imlach 2011 Superunknown VIII Sig Tveit 2012 Superunknown IX Lucas Stal-Madison 2013 Superunknown X ???

                      Frank and honest discussion around suicide, a plea for help and a dramatic intervention on The Nutters Club this week. To the onlooker, artist and musician Johnny Angel has it all – a handsome well-built man with a gorgeous smile, velvety smooth voice and gentle soul. But almost overnight Johnny’s world turned upside down when his mental health took some serious knocks. When Johnny agreed to talk with Mike King on The Nutters Club neither of them knew where that conversation might lead. The unscripted and live show often takes the host and guest to unexpected places as they share their journeys – the heartbreaks and triumphs of living with mental health issues – and overcoming them. It is compelling radio television, and Johnny’s show is no exception. Johnny Angel speaks from a very big heart on The Nutters Club As Johnny’s story unfolds, a cry for help from a radio listener via The Nutters Club Facebook page comes in. Interrupting the proceedings host Mike King addresses the matter directly with co host, psychiatrist Dr David Codyre and Johnny also offering advice from a professional and personal perspective. “Mike King‘s sensitive, compassionate and practical advice to a complete stranger solidifies his role as mental health mentor to the masses. Walking in the shoes of those affected by mental illness himself gives Mike a drive and an honesty that is the heart and soul of The Nutters Club” says producer Brian Holland. “We tell like it is. People speak their minds about their minds in a non-judgemental atmosphere” adds series director Marcus Clayton. Few people have the emotional integrity let alone the courage to talk openly about issues that have driven them to the edge. Johnny Angel breaks the mould. Together with Mike and Dr David Codyre, he takes us on an emotional roller coaster that will touch your heart and your soul. “If you don’t feel a joyful tear trickle down your cheek after viewing this episode of The Nutters Club then quite simply you are not human. Thank you Johnny Angel for your kindness and consideration; more importantly thank you for reminding us what the essence of being alive means,” says Boris Sokratov of the Mental Health Foundation. Johnny’s episode exemplifies what The Nutters Club is all about. By sharing his own story in a friendly environment, he doesn’t sensationalise his plight, and the show brings to light someone’s story that would not otherwise be shown to a wide audience. Part of The Nutters Club exercise is to de-stigmatise mental health discussion by talking to the people who experience it firsthand. It is not fast-cut or rushing to quick conclusions, but allows someone to speak their mind, about their mind so that others know that they and their families are not alone and that there is hope, support and encouragement for them.
