Ed Qualls, Nationally Known Commentator, Political and Economic Realist, Healthcare Strategist: From deliveries of online shopping orders to massive pieces of equipment, the open road and trucking help drive the U.S. economy. Autonomous cars and drones may be on the horizon, but tractor trailers still haul and deliver goods to doorsteps.
“However, America has more open trucking jobs than available commercial drivers. As older drivers retire in greater numbers, the industry faces a driver shortage.”
The U.S. economy and trucking volume have recovered since the recession in large numbers. According to reports, the industry has some 30,000 to 35,000 unfilled truck driver jobs, leaving the future impacts on the economy at great risk!
Ed Qualls uses his expertise to dissect this story and look at the economic and political ramifications it could have on the US.
In addition, we will tallk about why do so many people in the world (including Americans) hate America.
We will also take a look at other issues this morning "In the Pickle Barrel" at 8AM-10AM EST.
As the many middle-mile networks built by federal broadband stimulus, state and some private-sector efforts light up, broadband is not magically appearing on residential and business doorsteps as some local broadband champions mistakenly expected to happen. There's a lot of finger pointing, wailing and gnashing of teeth in communities as they subsequently try to figure out how to move last-mile projects forward.
OneCommunity announced a $2 million Big Gig Challenge grant to help public and private entities build community fiber networks in the nonprofit's 2,000-mile, 11-county coverage area. Their middle-mile fiber network is dedicated to propelling northeastern Ohio to the forefront of broadband innovation.
Listeners who want to move the last-mile ball forward despite the challenges to finding money and other resources will learn much from OneCommunity's COO Brent Lindsay and Economic Development Manager Liz Forester. They discuss the grant program and offer recommendations for other entities that want to create similar programs to drive last-mile buildouts to connect with middle mile infrastructure. Money is important, but Lindsay and Forester also describe the types of programs that must be in place so communities can maximize grants and other funding.

Working America is a national organization for working people who don’t have the benefit of a union on the job. Started in 2003, we mobilize our 3 million members throughout the year to fight for good jobs and a just economy. The majority of our members are working-class moderates from across the country. They are gun owners and churchgoers. They do not go to protests or rallies but they are angry about a corporate-controlled government and an economy tilted against them. In places where few other progressive organizations go, our organizers reach out to thousands of people—at their doorsteps—to talk about economic issues they care about and share ways to take action. Working America provides the bridge between these members and a progressive understanding of the economy. Two out of three people we talk to at the doors sign up as members. This year, we are in organizing working people in more than a dozen cities and states, in suburbs and exurbs, on college campuses and in rural areas, and more.
About Maggie Priebe Maggie Priebe joined Working America as the program director in 2009. She helps develop the organization’s approach to issues, working with the field staff to translate issues into a program to educate and engage members. She also coordinates educational material development. Miss Priebe has been fighting for social justice for ten years and previously worked with Ohio Citizen Action, America Votes and the Cincinnati Central Labor Council.

Imagination, what is it? Is MY imagination bad or good? Where did it come from? Is it my friend or is it my foe?
These are questions that we will address. No doubt you are looking for answers like a woman in great travail whose time to deliver her child has come. Or perhaps you feel the pressure of life. the need of now coming upon you like a robber whose desperation is beyond comprehension. The 'THE FIERCE URGENCY of NOW' demands your undivided attention. On the last episode entitled "Your Imagination is LIKE the Twilight Zone" Rod Sterling said "There is a 5th dimension beyond that which is known to man. It's a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. IT IS THE MIDDLE GROUND BETWEEN LIGHT AND SHADOW, BETWEEN SCIENCE AND SUPERSTITION AND IT LIES BETWEEN THE PIT OF MAN'S FEARS AND THE SUMMIT OF HIS KNOWLEDGE."
THE PIT OF MY FEARS AND THE SUMMIT OF MY KNOWLEDGE. Everyday people live somewhere between the P.O.F. [Pit of Fears] and S.O.K [Summit of Knowledge] The valley of indecisions and the mountains of derision. Pit is defined as: a hole, cavity in the ground; Summit defined as: top-most level attainable. When your imagination was left to raise itself like a child abandoned on the doorsteps of a stranger the world as you knew it changed! Your mind, emotions and will aided by the power called IMAGINATION forced into catyclismic proportions a new world - what was normal suddenly became abnormal. The Bible is not a history book BUT a CHARTER OF OUR EXISTENCE HERE ON PLANET EARTH. Even our Creator was grieved because our imagination is only evil. If I don't learn how to control my imagination it is profoundly evident upon the pages of history and on the tv networks that MY IMAGINATION WILL CONTROL ME.
After nearly four months of waiting, the 2013 NHL season is on our doorsteps, and the Gospel of Hockey is more than ready to welcome it. Hockey Evangelist Matt Gajtka and Puck Prophet Larry Sndyer are joined by credentialed NHL columnist and commentator Joe Depto, with the Pittsburgh Penguins' chances at their fourth Stanley Cup this week's primary topic. How will the shortened season affect the Penguins, if at all? What can we expect from superstar centers Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin? Will the goaltending and defense issues from last year's playoffs prove to be an aberration or a problem that lingers? What surprises and disappointments can be anticipate, either in Pittsburgh or around the NHL? Will big-league hockey suffer any long-term effects from the lockout or will fans bounce right back into it? Matt, Larry and Joe address those questions and more, plus area teams and programs take center stage in the weekly Local Hockey Report!
