The Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) Program is the largest school based father engagement program in the nation with nearly 4000 schools participating.
Kristi, a mother of three young children, found that coordinating her children’s after-school activities was no small task and left a great deal of room for error. (Have you ever had your child on the bus while you are sitting in car line…? Then you race home trying to beat the bus! Or, how many times have you had to call the school office to relay a message to your child, or your child has called you during the school day? Think about how disruptive that is to the teachers and your child?) With her homemade version of what was to become mybackpacktags, Kristi found the answer: Provide a child with the tools to be successful, and they will succeed! Every morning on the drive to school, Kristi and her children discuss their after-school plans. (Some days each child has a different plan!) Each child is responsible for changing his or her own tag and does so with confidence and pride. Kristi’s idea was so effective that teachers began recommending her idea and other families soon followed suit. Children were organized, prepared, and confident; Teachers were free of distractions about children’s after-school plans; and Parents went about their day knowing that their child would know where to go!
Such a simple solution to a complex problem.
Each week, WatchDOGS Radio host Keith Schumacher and co-host Chris Danenhauer discuss how this program is impacting families and schools across our nation and in three foreign countries.

There were a number of issues in the wake of Mark Jackson's dismissal as coach of the Golden State Warriors, but below the surface was a conversation about racial dynamics that few were willing to have. Marcus Thompson, columnist for the San Jose Mercury News, wrote a nuanced column about the subject and we're happy to have him on the Drive & Kick to continue the conversation.

In light of the recent firestorm set off by the dismissal of Prof. Brendan Bain, former head of Caribbean HIV/AIDS Regional Training (CHART), the Yardie Skeptics team will be turning our attention to dissecting the contending issues at play. Was Prof. Bain unfairly dismissed as a result of his honest expert opinion, or did he engage in professional misconduct and rightly deserve the outcome? Do his supporters have a case for arguing a violation of free speech, or is this nothing more than the typical Christian buffoonery? Has UWI acted in defence of academic integrity, or buckled under the pressure of the global "Gaystapo?"
And, where is Prof. Bain in the maelstrom?
If you're a supporter of Prof. Brendan Bain, the Yardie Skeptics team wants to hear from you! Call in this Sunday, May 25th at 12:30pm EDT (11:30am Jamaica time) and share your views live on air during the broadcast. But be prepared for some strident push-back! This is a no-holds-barred discussion, not the "we can't offend our sponsors" style of media you might be familiar with. So you don't want to miss it!
SHOW NOTES: From our HR HEROES HANGOUT series, this episode is, "What does "employment at will" really mean?
Short Answer: An employee may quit, or be fired, at any time with or without notice or cause.
Longer Answer (from http://www.ncsl.org/research/labor-and-employment/at-will-employment-overview.aspx):
"I. The At-Will Presumption Employment relationships are presumed to be ?at-will? in all U.S. states except Montana. The U.S. is one of a handful of countries where employment is predominantly at-will. Most countries throughout the world allow employers to dismiss employees only for cause.
A. At-Will Defined At-will means that an employer can terminate an employee at any time for any reason, except an illegal one, or for no reason without incurring legal liability. Likewise, an employee is free to leave a job at any time for any or no reason with no adverse legal consequences. At-will also means that an employer can change the terms of the employment relationship with no notice and no consequences. For example, an employer can alter wages, terminate benefits, or reduce paid time off. In its unadulterated form, the U.S. at-will rule leaves employees vulnerable to arbitrary and sudden dismissal, a limited or on-call work schedule depending on the employer's needs, and unannounced cuts in pay and benefits.
B. Modification by Contract The at-will presumption is a default rule that can be modified by contract. Typically, U.S. companies negotiate individual employment agreements only with high-level employees. Collective bargaining agreements usually provide that represented employees may only be terminated for cause. Cause generally includes reasons such as poor employee performance, employee misconduct, or economic necessity."
Many Black folk support the decision of the National Basketball Association dismissal of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling—one of their own fellow Plantation Owners—as though it was "our" victory. The move however applauded amounts to damage control & saving the NBA Slavocracy from one reckless Slave Master among 30 of them. Money is their God, lord & saviour & nothing interferes with their worship. The "players" can continue to pick & deliver the cotton, only now under a different plantation "owner."
The Entertainment Broadcast Network brings you another episode of Total Lacrosse with Jonny Vegas!
My guest today is Larry Mackey!
"The Jay-Z dissed lacrosse"
(AllHipHop News) Jay Z might have told an unnamed adversary (read: Drake) that he as playing the wrong sport on DJ Khaled's "They Don't Love You No More" but it may be Jay Z in the wrong arena. Today (April 29th), a spokesperson for Major League Lacrosse has issued a statement against Jay Z's dismissal of lacrosse on DJ Khaled's new single.
In the song "They Don't Love You No More", Jay Z states "boy, you soft as a lacrosse team." In a statement issued to MTV, Major League Lacrosse (MLL) reasons that lacrosse is in fact dangerous as "players are on the field dodging and shooting balls at over 100 miles per hour." After stating that Lacrosse is often called the fastest sport on two feet", the statement reads that Jay Z may be misinformed entirely about the sport:
With that said we don't think Jay-Z knows what he's talking about when he calls Lacrosse 'soft' I can guarantee you it is anything but a 'soft' sport.
The statement then goes on to not only claim Jay Z "would not last one minute" in a lacrosse game but also intimated that they would be willing to test him:
Mr. Carter would not last one minute on a lacrosse field during a match and he is more than welcome to come to any of our games and try.
Tonight on DITC - Donald Sterling's long running racist/insensitive viewpoints get exposed, leading to a lifetime ban by the NBA's Commissioner Adam Silver. We'll cover the evil, awful human that is Donald Sterling, the ban by Silver, and what it means for the Clippers and the NBA going forward. Is the harsh ruling a potential precedent for future insensitivity in the league? How does Sterling's dismissal impact the NBA and ownership in other industries? A Couple Quickies and Andy in Seattle offer their thought. PLUS we'll cover the NBA playoffs, some wild NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs series including a Ducks improbable comeback on the Stars, the equally improbably series comeback by the Kings vs the Sharks and more. THEN hopefully we hear from "Kevin on the Cape" and Random Questions. Special Tuesday Show.
At-will employment is a term used in U.S. labor law for contractual relationships in which an employee can be dismissed by an employer for any reason (that is, without having to establish "just cause" for termination), and without warning. When an employee is acknowledged as being hired "at will", courts deny the employee any claim for loss resulting from the dismissal. The rule is justified by its proponents on the basis that an employee may be similarly entitled to leave his or her job without reason or warning. In contrast, the practice is seen as unjust by those who view the employment relationship as characterized by inequality of bargaining power.
