    Please tune in to Stand Up Hudson Valley Episode 20 tonight at 7 PM.  Hosts John Allegro and Emily Convers will discuss the latest on "Salt-gate," the manufactured controversy that has roiled the relationship between the Town Board and the Monroe Highway Superintendant over the past months.  It's so bad that the April 20 Town Board meeting degenerated into a shouting match between the Supervisor and the Hwy. Superintendant that lasted about an hour.


    All this prior to announcing a "rules of civility" for meeting attendees.

    Intersectionality & Diversity in the Tech Industry: Challenge of Silicon Valley

    in Business

    This interview is a three-way discussion between the host, Franne McNeal, the author, Dr. Fay Cobb Payton and Dr. Wayne M. Wormley.


    Dr. Fay Cobb Payton published a book in 2014 entitled: Leveraging Intersectionality: Seeing and Not Seeing, in which she discussed digital and social inclusion in technology oriented fields. Her work is a reflection of the earlier diversity efforts (from the 80’s and 90’s to the new millennium), to create productive and healthy work environments that naturally attract the best and brightest talent, globally. Here we are in 2015 and we see these efforts have not succeeded, especially in technology oriented/STEM fields.

    Help Insomnia In 20 Minutes a Day With a Dip In the Family Hot Tub


    There are countless reasons why insomnia hits, but few strategies really work to bring the deep, well-rested sleep we need and deserve. Here’s how to help with insomnia in just twenty minutes a day with a dip in the family hot tub.


    Soak 30-60 Minutes Prior to Going to Bed
    Heat from the hot tub elevates body temperature naturally, getting out causes a sharp decline. This decrease in internal body temperature alerts the brain that it’s time to sleep.


    All Natural Stress Relief
    Falling asleep is never easy with tension and anxiety present. Heat and soothing massage relax tense muscles on contact, making it easier than ever to slow the mind & drift off effortlessly.


    Usher In a Peaceful, Pain Free Sleep
    For people living with chronic pain, bedtime can be frustrating. A dip in the hot tub is a fast acting, proven remedy to banish pain for restful sleep.


    To learn more about the benefits of owning a hot tub, pick up a copy of this free buyer’s guide “First Time Spa Buyers Most Frequently Asked Questions.” Just give us a call at 480-969-6224 or visit our website at: http://SouthwestSpas.com
