Next week (02/17/14) my guests will be Barbra Pushies & Maridee Nelson, the creators & owners of the Yarnover Truck.
The story behind this is great. They met in 2010 at a Tuesday night knitting group & became fast friends. One night at group, Maridee mentioned she was thinking about opening a yarn store. She had a name and a location all picked out, but the financial realities of a brick and mortar yarn store seemed overwhelming. During her weekly knitting class at work, Barbra brought up her friend’s yarn store idea. It was always a dream of Barbra’s, too, but, like Maridee, it always seemed just out of reach. One of the members of the knitting group suggested a yarn truck and immediately Barbra was enamored with the idea. Hours of Google research on mobile retail business and one overwhelmingly long email to Maridee later, they found themselves on Melrose talking with one of LA’s first mobile boutiques. On July 5, 2012 the Yarnover Truck was born.
This year the Yarnover Truck team, as well as the Yarnover Truck itself will be on the STITCHES West Market floor. These ladies have a lot planned for the weekend. I’m looking forward to having them on the show so they can tell us what they’ve been up to and what we can expect at STITCHES and in the future. I hope you’ll join us for this show.

Topic: Is Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Truck Drivers?
Virginia Chomo, a volunteer of Trucker Charity,
will be our guest to discuss her discovery that there exist no carbon monoxide detectors for semi-trucks, despite standards that require the device in homes, boats, RV's and airplanes.
Truckers live in their trucks; most of them must idle for comfort control or have an Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) that reduces emissions. Either way, emissions are still an effect to the occupants.
Thanks to Virginia's work, the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is now developing and setting standards for Smoke and Carbon Monoxide detectors with truckers in mind.
Join us as she shares her findings and her work with manufacturers regarding the special needs of these detectors as related to semis.

Topic: Safety Cameras That Face Truck Drivers Inside The Cab of the Truck.
Truck Drivers discuss the trend at some carriers to install inward facing cameras that are said to improve safety. Though many employers now film employees at work for various reasons which include, safety, security, to monitor theft and performance, long haul truck drivers essentially live in their workplace and feel their privacy is being violated. What do you think?
Join our discussion as we chat with driver Ralph Acocella Jr. in a roundtable discussion about his experience working for a carrier with the inward facing cameras and how they were used in practice.
One more question to add to your list when you interview carriers you are considering working for.
