DR. FORD HAS A CONFLICT. WE ARE WORKING TO REBOOK THIS FOR NEXT WEEK. SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE. - JOYCE AND ROBIN
What can we do to lower the incidence of infant deaths? Joyce and Robin speak with Dr. Robert Ford, a retired obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN) from West Memphis, Arkansas, now living in Memphis, Tennessee. Dr. Ford shares his insights into this problem, which is highest in the Southern states.
Unfortunately, about 24,000 infants died in the United States in 2011. The loss of a baby remains a sad reality for many families and takes a serious toll on the health and well-being of families, as well as the nation.
The death of a baby before his or her first birthday is called infant mortality. The infant mortality rate is an estimate of the number of infant deaths for every 1,000 live births. This rate is often used as an indicator to measure the health and well-being of a nation, because factors affecting the health of entire populations can also impact the mortality rate of infants. There are obvious differences in infant mortality by age, race, and ethnicity; for instance, the mortality rate for non-Hispanic black infants is more than twice that of non-Hispanic white infants.
What are the Causes?
Fortunately, most newborns grow and thrive. However, for every 1,000 babies that are born, six die during their first year.1 Most of these babies die because they are—
Born with a serious birth defect.
Born too small and too early (i.e., preterm birth; birth before 37 weeks gestation).
Victims of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
Affected by maternal complications of pregnancy.
Victims of injuries (e.g., suffocation).
These top five leading causes of infant mortality together account for 58% of all infant deaths in the United States in 2011.

Attorney General Holder limits police seized-asset sharing process. This episdoe will discuss whether limits of police seized assets is an abuse of discretion by the Attorney General or a method to avoid abuse of process and discretion by local and state police and judicial systems? We will examine several legal theories and issues faced by local and state police.

This is a great month if you are into pipes and drums music. While in the midst of debuting lots of music by The Rogues, I also came to an agreement with the The American Rogues. They recently supplied me with some music from their live album, which they performed with the Air Force Band.
My special guest today is Trinket O'Danny of The O'Danny girls, an act that performs at the Maryland Renaissance Festival (MDRF).
This episode features an interview with organist Gary Schwartz aka Thomas Tallis of MDRF - The Maryland Renaissance Festival. He has been a long time friend of mine. Not sure if I can load up any of his music before today's show, I will try.
