Are you annoyed with Drivers that focus more on their CELL PHONES than ON THE ROAD? Do you think that Drivers should recieve STIFFER Penalties when cell phone usage results in injury/ fatality? Unfortunately ONE text message/phone call can be the difference between Life & Death. Many people, including Law Enforcement, continue to violate the Cell Phone laws on a daily basis. Below are several statistics about "Driver Distractions" and the effect that it has on others. After reading the entirety of the facts listed below, YOU be the Judge.
The United States Department of Transportation notes that cell phones are involved in 1.6 million auto crashes each year that cause a half million injuries and take 6,000 lives.
According to FocusDriven®, up to 80% of all crashes involve some form of driver distraction.
During any point of the day, 11% of drivers are talking on their cell phones, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
A study from the University of Utah indicated that the reaction time of a teen driver using a cell phone is the same as that of a 70-year-old driver who is not using a cell phone.
According to the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, texting while driving is six times more likely to cause an auto crash than driving when intoxicated.
The Virginia Tech Transportation Institute installed cameras on dashboards inside truck cabs. From the video footage, on average it took five seconds with their eyes off the road when driver's experienced distractions. The distance covered in five seconds of driving at 55 mph is equivalent to the length of a football field.

There is something in all of our lives that we have been trying to give up or let go of for a while now. What is it?

Don't you want to give it up? Don't you at least wanna try? It's only gonna benefit you in the long run so let's get together on this one and get serious about making that change for the better.
Dr. Meganne Masko joins me to discuss music therapy research in the Journal of Music Therapy, Spring 2015, Volume 52, Number 1. If you'd like to participate or prepare for Journal Club, read the abstracts of each article prior to the show. We'll discuss our impressions of the research and how we apply each article to our work as board certified music therapists.
We see a lot of strange things in the summertime. You never know what you're gonna get on a daily basis while you're driving, riding public transportation, walking, sitting on your porch or steps, shopping, looking out of your window or whatever. The summertime does crazy things to people. It' makes some people act out. When you think about it, you've probably seen the wildest things ever during the warm weather months. So, what have you seen this year? How about last year?
This is a call in show.
You are encouraged to share anything crazy that you've seen this summer. Nothing is too wild, ratchet, ghetto, unbelievable, ridiculous or just plain wrong.
I know that personally, I don't have to leave my street. I have pictures! They give me a show every single day! Wait until I share my stories. Share yours as well and let's have some fun on this show.
There may be drugs involved. In fact I know there will be.

GAY CONVERSION THERAPY – REALLY?
In case you never heard of it, some people think they can convert gays, especially young people, into heterosexuals by using a type of “therapy.” Really! Of course this assumes that being gay is like a bad habit or mental illness that can be cured. So what is this all about, does it help, does it hurt, and what are we doing about it?
Oregon is one state among several that recently passed a law prohibiting conversion therapy, and other states are considering such bans.
Samantha Ames is an attorney with the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) knows about conversion, what it’s supposed to do and what it really does. She’s served as a Policy Fellow in Washington, D.C. before moving to San Francisco to work as a staff attorney focusing on conversion therapy cases. She has testified on the harms of conversion therapy and the constitutionality of efforts to end it before both state and federal bodies, as well as at the United Nations Committee Against Torture in Geneva, Switzerland.
Please join us to learn more about conversion and the hype around it.
