    Dr. Raluca Vrabie was born in Bucharest, Romania, under communism. She lived there until the age 13, then emigrated through Austria to the United States.


    She resides in New York almost the whole time since (high school at Stuyvesant in Manhattan, college at Cooper Union in the Village, medical school and residency at Mount Sinai on the Upper East Side). After travelling to Philladelphia for a fellowship at UPenn, she came right back to begin her career at Winthrop Hospital in 2010.

She thinks her patients are amazing people, for accomplishing all that they do with this disease burden in tow: marriages, children, masters’ degrees, spin classes, quitting IV drug use, divorces, moving to a new country, running a diner.

    Mobile Technology in K-12 Schools: What You Need to Know!

    in Marketing

    Rapid expansion in adoptions and use of mobile devices in schools has the potential to impact almost every aspect of education. A new report, "Mobile Technology for K-12 Education," sponsored by mobile learning company, Amplify, and conducted by education market research experts at IESD, reveals details about the current status of mobile technology in our schools. The question is, what are publishers and developers who serve the school market doing in terms of their product marketing plans and their sales approaches as we move away from the a textbook centric K-12 sales environment to an environment where smartphones, tablets, and other mobile computing devices are the primary delivery envelope? Host Glen McCandless asks K-12 market researcher, Jay Sivin-Kachala, of IESD, to provide his perspective.

    Social Networking in Schools – Can Schools Demand Passwords

    in Legal

    Employers are not the only ones demanding social media passwords – schools are doing so too.  There has been lots of media attention about this – resulting in a surge of legislative activity on the issue.  In Illinois, a new law went into effect this year allowing school officials to have access to passwords to students’ social media accounts in certain situations.  The concern, of course, is how this impacts a student’s right to privacy under the Constitution and state laws.  This podcast with Kelly Anderson will explore the new law and how it could affect your children.

    The Parker J Cole Show -- Schools are for Bullies

    in Radio

    There's not a day or a week that goes by where we hear of some child being bullied by others. In fact, most of us have stories of being bullied by others in school. Growing up, I was bullied by some girls who constantly made fun of me and talked about me behind my back. Some people would say that being bullied is something that kids do and we just have to deal with it.

    In today's world, bullying has led to a host of social ills with two extremes -- the bullied either commits a self-inflicted crime to get away from their attackers or they retaliate in a violent manner. 


    Despite this fact, it seems as if school administrators continue to keep this vicious cycle from happening. In fact, more than once, when the bullied confronts their attacker, they're the ones reprimanded for standing up for themselves. As such, schools are for bullies.

    Let’s talk about this issue with my guest co-host, author and advocate Adra Young. You can call in at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air. Or, you can download the WLUV radio mobile app. Any way you can, tune in. You're not going to want to miss this show
