The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Olympian Julia Clukey.
The 2006-2007 season was particularly important for Julia’s Olympic aspirations. After narrowly making the team for the past year and a half, she returned to competition and raced to a career-best 4th place finish at the Verizon U.S. National Championships. Her success caught the attention of her teammates, her competitors and even surprised herself.
“That was a big step for me. I established to my peers that I could compete among the best in the world. The 4th place finish gave me the confidence I needed to keep following my dream,” said Clukey.
At her first World Championship event in Igls, Austria in 2007, she finished 8th.
She finished in 4th place at the 2007-08 World Cup in Lake Placid and prides herself on being a fourth-time International Start Champion.
In November 2008, Julia again notched her career-best finish in a World Cup competition in Lake Placid, New York when she finished in 4th place, missing the podium by just .04 seconds. The time was also one of her four top-10 finishes during the 2007-08 World Cup season. In addition to her best race time, Julia is a four-time International Start Champion.
In 2010, Clukey reached one of her goals by qualifying for the U.S. Olympic team. For the first time in her career she competed in front of a national television audience at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, Canada, where she finished 17th.
In 2010-2011, Julia continued to climb in the World Cup rankings with top 15 finishes. She posted strong times in December that include a 1st place finish in a Nation’s Cup event and a 5th place finish in a World Cup Event at Park City, Utah in late December.

Today, we're discussing a particular change recently made to the pulping grids. One of David's goals is to make cooler pulp, which protects the produce's enzymes. Another is to maximize juice yield, and thus enzyme ingestion, from your produce.
Listen is as David Feinberg tells us how and why juicing grids required more thinking to help you achieve the most from your cold press juicing.

Most Americans, when they think about the Civil War, probably remember the great land battles like Gettysburg and Shiloh, not realizing that there also was a significant maritime conflict as well. From inland waterways to the deep oceans, Union and Confederate naval forces were engaged in a four-year struggle for control of the trade routes to and from North America. One key campaign was the Confederate attempt to interdict key Union maritime activities, particularly whaling ships which supplied important oil products. To accomplish this task, Confederate Secretary of the Navy Stephen Mallory commissioned and acquired a small number of armed merchant cruisers, mostly from Great Britain. Though few in number, these merchant cruisers harassed Union trade routes across the globe, and required the Union Navy to commit valuable resources to hunt them down. Along the way their captains and crews became legends in the annals of American naval history.
To learn more about the Confederate commerce raiding campaign, tune into this week's edition of Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EST. Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) author Dwight Hughes to discuss his new book, A CONFEDERATE BIOGRAPHY. The book chronicles the voyage of the Confederate merchant cruiser CSS Shenandoah, which in 1864 and 1865, circumnavigated the globe on an epic wartime cruise. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer questions and opinions to both gentlemen, in what will be certainly an intriguing hour.
