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.
There is a white male, maybe more than one abducting little black girls in Minneapolis. Co-host Ronald A. Edwards called the Minneapolis Public Schools and asked why an “AMBER ALERT” or “ROTO-CALL” was not done. School officials said it did not meet the threshold. The Minneapolis and St. Paul Public Schools have failed children of color one to many times. Join us as we talk about education, some history about Minnesota and current events.
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.
Gentle World Cafe host, Suparna Malhotra, talks with Elisa Paloschi, about her film.
Driving with Selvi is a documentary film that tells the story of a remarkable young woman who defies strict patriarchal traditions and escapes a child marriage to become South India’s first female taxi driver.
We first meet 18-year-old Selvi at a girls’ shelter in 2004 - timid, soft-spoken, a fresh runaway from a violent past and the victim of a life set against her.
Over the 10 years filmed, we see a remarkable transformation as Selvi finds her voice and refuses to surrender to societal expectations – learning to drive, starting her own taxi company and working on the front lines of reproductive health education.
Instead of adhering to the patriarchal codes that oppress and restrict women, Selvi’s bold determination defies and challenges them. Will she hold steadfast on her road to economic empowerment? Will she remarry? After being unwanted and abused by her own mother, will she be able to break the vicious cycle of devaluing girls so prevalent in her society?
This character-driven story highlights the challenges that the disempowered female population in India face. While the film offers a glimpse into a world of poverty, prejudice and desperate circumstances, it shatters stereotypes as Selvi redefines herself from victim to survivor.
Through Selvi’s eyes, the audience is taken on an intimate journey, and perhaps even a familiar one, of healing, overcoming obstacles, and fulfilling dreams. Throughout this journey, it is Selvi’s unwavering spirit that shines through. Her refusal to surrender offers inspiration, hope and the clear message that anything is possible.

Here we go, another law to control behavior. Many cities have passed a law that you cant text while you drive. Is that infringing on our liberties? Is it a good law or bad one? What about DUI checkpoints? Do we keep passing laws to be safer? Republicans seem to be behind many of these so what are your thoughts?
Changing lives every day of the week!
FREEDOM OR DEATH!
UNITE OR DIE!
WHERE ARE WE?

In the early morning hours of September 3, 2006, professional truck driver Randy Tomblin pulled his rig over on the side of I-64 near Huntington, West Virginia. Randy was responding to a lady waving on the side of the interstate, apparently with a flat tire. The time was about 3:00 A.M.
Having always been a good samaritan, Tomblin thought to himself that there was no way he was going to let a women change a tire alone and in the dark. As he walked pass the auto, a male suddenly appeared, hitting Tomblin over the head with what police believed to be a .380-caliber handgun.
Tomblin would be robbed of $200 and as he attempted to rise to his feet, the man fired one bullet that lodged between his lower back and pelvis and which still remains there today. The shooting would cause Randy to spend four months in a wheelchair and unable to work for eleven months.
As a professional driver for 39 years, Randy Tomblin joins us as our special guest to share his story and to discuss his views on Mike's Law - a proposed Bill to Congress by the Small Business in Transportation Coalition which if signed into law, would allow U.S. citizens engaged in interstate commerce to carry a concealed weapon throughout all states, thus not being held to the current reciprocity laws.
The legislative draft entitled Sec. 9999 “Americans Working in Interstate Commerce Protection Act of 2014” is named for trucker, Mike Boeglin who was fatally shot in June of this year in Detroit, Michigan. As of the time of this writing, the petition has received 8,388 signatures.
Join us with our special guest, Randy Tomblin as he shares his story, the thoughts on why Congress should pass Mike's Law and the ongoing problems still faced today from that one moment in time back in 2006.
