Show Notes - 08/30/2011

Just a recap of the recent Hurricane Irene and some of our stories about it including the Baltimore Studio losing power over the weekend. We hoped for some listener calls and received none but we still covered the story well including the new threat forming called TS Katia. Please watch your local news and weather for information on that as it should hit the US early to mid-week.

Show Notes - 08/23/2011

Tonight on the show, we welcomed Dr. Ted Galen Carpenter who is a senior fellow for defense and foreign policy studies at the Cato Institute. Dr. Carpenter discussed the reasons why the United States must resist any type of military role in a post-Gaddafi Libya. The United States cannot afford a long-term financial rebuilding project. He also suggests that when the NATO operation is over, a country that has a closer and more direct interest, such as Italy, France or Spain should handle the after-party (so to speak).

Also, we checked in with details about the East Coast earthquake which happened in the Mineral, VA area 3.7 Miles below ground and was felt from South Carolina to Maine. It was the largest East Coast earthquake since 1944.

Show Notes - 08/21/2011

Tonight on the show we began with a very interesting interview with author Gabriella van Rij and she wrote a book entitled "With All My Might". The book is based on her personal journey with dealing with cultural differences. Gabriella has sustained some truly paradigm shifts in her life that has caused her to deal with living in different cultures and dealing with and coming to terms with the statement, "It's OK to be different". You can find out more and order the book by visiting her website below.

Dave Bart who works for Swift Demolition and Recycling stopped by in the studio to discuss recycling on the community level. What we learned is that Dave has an additional message buried in that and that is we need to get back to the way things were in the 60s, 70s and even into the 80s when we were doing so much more recycling without realizing that we are doing it. If we can come together for community events then let's see how we can also as a community help each other and recycle as a community therefore helping the environment and getting back to know each other in person.

Kay Stout joined us on the Ideas For A Challenging Economy segment and spoke with Kris Rush, President & CEO of Rush Strategies LLC. They spoke about some of the positive trends and legislation in the Oklahoma area and how the economic changes in that area shows promise that the economy on a larger level in other US regions certainly can improve.

Tonight on the program, we spoke of more troubles with Verizon as Joel was temporarily blacklisted as a spammer. Most likely this was due to the fact that we have a .info domain, oh well. The problem was resolved but an awful inconvenience.

We also spoke about the trouble with auto repair bills skyrocketing during the economy and thus making more trouble for people already down from the economy. What are you doing to combat this problem? Do you know of any good mechanics, garages or dealers who are stepping up to lower prices of car repairs? Let us know. Tell us on our Facebook Page.

Finally we featured new music from our friend, Singer/Songwriter Randell Beck. He wrote a song entitled, "31" and dedicated to the 31 fallen soldiers in the Taliban attack on the military helicopter in Afghanistan on August 5th. The song is truly brilliant and you can visit his site and grab the song below.

Issues Issues Issues

Yes tonight with all the issues going on, we covered a few big bullet points. First is a disturbing story about unhappy workers leaving their jobs voluntarily in hopes of finding greener pastures. This is disturbing because we cannot imagine someone leaving a job voluntarily in this economic fabric and taking their chances on unemployment hoping for something better. Would anyone really dare to do that even in a good economy? Well, about 2 million Americans decided to do it and that is up 35% in the past two years.

Next, Verizon is on strike. Well Joel took issue with this because unions seem to make things unfair for the rest of us hard working people out here. You already make a better salary than most of us and have better benefits than most of us and you need more and more. Certainly it is not all the fault of the employees. There are officers of the unions that make these greedy decisions. Meanwhile, workers are put out to strike instead of working and making money to support their families. As caller Jack says, this is not the 1930s anymore.

For more on what happened on the show, check out the links below to the news that we covered.

Show Notes - 08/09/2011

We spoke with Shelly Palmer, Host of NBC Universal's Live Digital with Shelly Palmer and Fox 5 New York's On-Air Tech expert. We spoke to him about Facebook's Facial recognition and the fact that users would have to opt OUT of it rather than select it to be enabled. While many people judge this sort of thing, Shelly reminds us of the obvious which is that Facebook is free. People who get something for nothing will usually complain about it...society being what it is. Check out Shelly's website for more on the digital world and you will get lost on his site for hours.

Then we discussed Disc Cloning software and how the benefits of this are slightly better than that of backing files up because when you clone a disc, you are making an exact replica of everything on your hard drive at that given time, including all your software and settings. RAID systems were also discussed.

On the program tonight we spoke with Country Singer & Songwriter Randell Beck. Randell hails from Lubbock Texas where such greats like Mac Davis, Waylon Jennings and Buddy Holly hailed from. Randell is another great coming out of the plains of Texas. We featured his single, Take Me Back, which is about to be released on a 5 song EP. Randell has a great background in music, keeps himself very musically busy and will be returning to the show very soon for more music and fun. Check out his website below for more information and how you can get his tunes.

Would you believe that top White House Adviser, David Axelrod is blaming the tea party Republicans for the downsizing of the US credit rating from AAA to AA+? So in 7 months, these 59 Republicans are solely responsible for this? That is very big of the White House to blame someone else for this problem because not ONE other congress person can hardly be responsible. No and not ONE other person in the administration over the past 10 or so years is at all responsible for anything that has made this financial mess, is that about right? Does anyone else buy the bullshit? I don't. I say that these 69 people have begun the process of restoring checks and balances.

Tonight we were visited by our friend Danika Holmes who is a wonderfully talented Americana singer and songwriter. Things have been well for Danika as she has been performing and working on her new material and keeping very busy. The CD Release party is planned for Friday November 4, 2011 and will be broadcasted on a web stream all over the world, which is way cool. The time is TBD so stay tuned to http://www.DanikaHolmes.com/kickstarter for details.

The Senate passed the debt ceiling bill and President Obama signed it into law. However this is just trouble waiting to spawn again as the debt limit raised only covers the federal government until September 30 where we will have to watch again as these lazy no good politicians come to an emergency 11th hour deal instead of proposing a budget with realistic elements.
