    in News

    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.

    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.

    Driving with Selvi: Through the lens of filmmaker Elisa Paloschi

    in Culture

    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.

    Super Dave Show - Should there be a law against texting while driving?

    in Politics

    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?

    Ron Nawrocki - Wealth DNA

    in Finance

    Financial Literacy - Blame Yourself ! The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating savers & investors. We continue our series on Financial Literacy, focusing on YOU and paving your path to financial independence. Are you well on your way to becoming Wealthy? Are there some obstacles on that path? Is your level of Wealth DNA high enough to make it to your ultimate goal? Who are some of the people in your life who held you back?


    For those who have not yet achieved financial independence, or concerned you'll never make it – we had several shows in this series aimed at finding the root cause. We decided blaming your parents may be accurate, but doesn't help. We then suggested blaming your teachers and schools – who probably didn't provide you the financial skills you need, but that didn't help either. So maybe you can blame your employer? Maybe your maker?


    Our special guest Larry Winget will share the answer as to who to blame. Larry Winget, also known as the Pit Bull of Personal Development,is a straight shooter and won't mince words. He's the author of 6 bestseller books including:  "Grow a Pair", "Shut up Stop Whining & Get a Life" , and "You're Broke because You want to be". He's worked with 400 of the Fortune 500 companies and has been a guest on CNN, MSNBC, Fox, PBS and many other programs. What's some of his advice to increase your Financial Literacy? Which of his books should you buy yourself and your kids for Christmas? Grab a cup of coffee, or glass of wine and learn the answers …
