    Online Dispute Resolution: The Simple Way To Build Peace In The Digital Era

    in Technology

    Our century is permanently presenting paradoxical situations. Thanks to Globalization, the economical vicissitudes of Gambia can produce a decided influence in Bolivia. Even though the growth of the communication media is undeniable, people feel increasingly alone. Internet has burst into our lives to stay.

    Alberto Elisavetsky, director of the non-profit social network ODR Latinoamerica, will speak with us about his experiences in the use of new technologies applied to conflict resolution in Hispanic America, and how this modality can provide quick and low-cost resolution to various sorts of conflicts.

    Alberto Elisavetsky is the director of ODR LATINOAMERICA. Among his most remarkable achievements, there’s the agreement of professional capacitation in distance mediation with the Justice and Human Rights Ministries of the provinces of Salta and Córdoba, Argentina. Another training agreement was made with the School of Judicial Investigation of the Judicial Power of the State of Guanajuato, Mexico. He is the director of the Observatory of Conflict in the National University of Tres de Febrero, Argentina, dedicated to research and advance of conflict resolution through new technologies. He’s also a professor in the virtual modality of the University.

    Tracy Culbreath has a passion for conflict resolution that began after pursuing her Bachelors of Science degree from the University of Central Florida in Interpersonal Organizational Communication. After observing the consequences of poor communication on a personal and professional level, she realized she needed additional skills to address the conflicts that often resulted from communication breakdowns. Tracy graduated from the University of Baltimore with a Master’s of Science in Negotiation and Conflict Management.

    DST on BTR 11/23/15: Tigs get Maybin, Lions win, CFBITM, CBBITM, Pistons, Wings

    in Sports

    Taylor "Gator" Phillips and Ed Smith break down the Tigers trading Ian Krol and Gabe Speier to the Atlanta Braves for Cameron Maybin, which means Rajai Davis is likely gone. We'd also like to note that the "Tigers sign Zach Greinke" article is a fake article, which means it didn't happen. The Tigers also hired Lloyd McClendon as the AAA Toledo Mud Hens manager.

    We also touch on the Lions hiring Rod Wood as president, announcing their relocation on radio to 760 (am) WJR, and winning 18-13 over the Oakland Raiders at Ford Field, which pretty much ruins their chances at getting the first overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft, which still stands to be Ole Miss Rebels junior defensive end Robert Nkemdiche.

    Moving over to college football, the #9 Michigan State Spartans upset the #3 Ohio State Buckeyes 17-14 at The Horseshoe, and the Michigan Wolverines pull away with a 28-16 win over the Penn State Nittany Lions at Happy Valley.

    In college basketball, the Wolverines fell flat against the Xavier Musketeers 86-70 AT HOME, while the Michigan State Spartans blast through Arkansas Pine Bluff 92-46 and took care of the Eastern Michigan Eagles 89-65.

    The Pistons beat the Timberwolves 96-86 at Target Center but give one away to the Washington Wizards 97-95 at the Palace of Auburn Hills. They also got destroyed by the Milwaukee Bucks 109-88 on the road.

    The Red Wings hang on in regulation to beat the Los Angeles Kings 3-2 but give up another late third-period game-tying goal and still beat the St. Louis Blues 4-3 in overtime at Scottrade Center. Plus, former Red Wing Landon Ferraro was claimed off waivers by the Boston Bruins.

    New York Jets Vs. Texans More than losing a game

    in Football

    The New York Jets in a Must win situation - did'nt. They're no longer in the AFC Wildcard Picture. The Texans have Some quality Defensive Players and one special wide reciever named DeAndre Hopkins.

    The Jets lost more than a game, more than a playoff spot. They lost their star Defensive back Darrelle Revis to a concussion and Center Nick Mangold to a right hand injury that required stitches.

    Each week the New York Jets have had a new and different problem costing them the game; excepting their Special Teams which have been a problem from the start of the season. This Team needs Offensive line help. A pass Rush and a sense of urgency. 

    Ryan Fitzpatrick and his injured companions had player execution problems again this week; Kenbrel Thompkins was inactive in favor of Devin Smith, who again could not deliver. Does Todd Bowles have what it takes to win situational Fooball and are he and Chan Gailey on the same page?

    Let's talk Dolphin's. Yes, they're 6 -4 but that does'nt mean this Jets Team will beat them this Sunday.

    Join Hosts Herb LaLane (@ThaKingofQueens) and James Boyd (@OneJetDrive) as we break it down and talk about our position in the AFC East and conference.

    SteelCast: NFL division races and week 11 stories

    in Football

    SteelCast returns this Friday at 12 noon ET! 

    Christopher Carter and Dani Bostick will be hosting their podcast with a new episode catching you up on divisional races across the NFL, as well as your latest news on the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Be sure to listen in live or listen on iTunes after the show is over as we discuss the recent major storylines of your Steelers and the other teams that might impact the Steelers down the line. 

    Thanks to the Cincinnati Bengals' loss on Monday night to the Houston Texans, the Bengals' task of running the table for the AFC North doesn't look as easy as before with several difficult games on their schedule, including the 7-2 Arizona Cardinals this Sunday night.

    Meanwhile, division races across the NFL have changed seemingly overnight. The Green Bay Packers seem to have lost the stranglehold they've had on the NFC North for years as the Minnesota Vikings took first place in the division last week. The Denver Broncos have lost their second straight game and look to not have Peyton Manning for the rest of the season while the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders are in hot pursuit. We talk about these races and more.

    The Steelers enjoy their bye week after back-to-back wins at home with several positive things going for them. We talk about the defensive front's pressure that has the team back in the top five in sacks, the secondary that has brought back aggressive hard-hitting football, and the offense that seems to find ways to execute despite who gets injured.

    Call in to join the show at anytime at 347-850-8581.
