SORT BY Relevancy
Saturday August 22nd 2015 6PM ET
Tonight is a very solemn topic for truckers, Suicide by Truck, discussing the horrible incidents of pedestrians and four-wheelers, who choose speeding trucks as an instrument of their suicide Although the subject matter is not uncommon among veteran drivers, it's not often a preferred topic of discussion in the chat rooms.
A truck driver whose truck has been randomly chosen as the means to anothers' end, may silently struggle for years with the horrific guilt and graphic memories of the incident.
Our guest tonight on AskTheTrucker Live is Carolyn Magner Mason, special contributor for Overdrive Magazine.
Carolyn has recently written the eerily popular “Suicide by Truck” 4 part series for Overdrive Magazine.
Video of 'Suicide by truck' on I-35E in Texas caught on owner-operator's dashcam.
Call in tonight and share your thoughts about this topic, whether it be an opinion, or your own personal experience or even near experience of "Suicide by Truck".
CAREER PATHWAYS IN READINESS IN JOHNSON COUNTY,KY SCHOOLS?
?Kentucky is a forerunner in Education...YES THEY ARE...and WIN LEARNING bring us Noel Crum, CTE and Innovation Coordinator in this rural school district and their innovative approaches to college and career readiness
KLA Schools is an upscale preschool catering to children three months of age up to age six. KLA schools offers innovative early child care facilities along with a unique approach to early childhood education. The KLA Schools concept is inspired by cutting-edge educational philosophies including the Reggio Emilia Approach.
KLA is building a world-class franchise organization that sets new standards for excellence within the children's educational services industry.
Heavy reliance upon the Reggio Emilia Approach provides KLA with a different method than what has become the standard in American daycare and preschool franchises. Many parents who are seeking the best for their children are drawn to KLA's new system and the inspirational design of the schools. While childcare and preschool centers often lay claim to having a superior education program or curriculum, few back up this claim with a concrete, verifiable explanation. We are meeting with Roberto Ortega, CEO and co-founder of KLA Schools.
I have a dream...Celebrating Our Jubilee!
Our forefathers and mothers planted trees from which we gather fruit, and dug wells from which we quench our thirst. Civil Rights Activist marched for us, died for us and pleaded for our equality.
So what are we leaving behind for our communities today? What are we fostering in the minds of our Black children? How will we strengthen our families and our communities? How will we show the power of LOVE in the world? How are we Leading Change?
Just over fifty years ago, Dr. King's "I Have a Dream..." Speech debuted in Detroit and transformed a nation. Today, we, the residents of Detroit, are uniting to become a beacon of light and love to usher in greater transformation within our capacity to love that will impact this city, nation and the world. As Detroit goes, so does the nation.
Grass roots organizations and communities in Detroit are raising the bar on what's possible for us as Humans by elevating our consciousness to envision our lives as spirits in human form co-creating a world that reflects love, unity, compassion and Power. Find their destiny so you can powerfully play a role in Detroit's Re-birth that causes the world to notice!
Today, we are turning our discussion to our education system as school is resuming next week in our city. We want to encourage dialogue on what are the expectations for our children during their educational journey and how it translates to them becoming a part of society. What role is expected of them that is reflecting in the education they receive? Is it inclusive of the children's culture and societal experiences or is it a mirage of the life they have no hope of achieving? It's time to have this conversation.
Remember, we are powerful, and together we rise!
