    An Exploration of Opportunity: Women in Mobile/Wireless Tech

    in Technology

    On Monday, June 22nd, the Mobile Technology Association of Michigan will launch the Women in Mobile Tech Advisory Council with a mission ‘to support women through access to educational forums, networking, mentoring, technical training, resources, scholarships, and more, with a primary focus on professional women currently working with, or interested in working with, these technologies in any industry.

The Women in Mobile Tech Advisory Council will be the resource to pull together the various stakeholders and resources focused on this issue to connect talent, interest and opportunity.


    The launch of the Women in Mobile Tech Advisory Council will feature an incredible panel of women leaders in the mobile/wireless tech space from a cross-section of industries to address this topic, as well as discuss their own journey's to achieving success in this field. Join host Melissa Birnie and guest, Linda Daichendt, MTAM Exeutive Director, to learn more about the Women in Mobile Tech Advisory Council, what you can expect to learn at the launch event, and what this Council expects to do for women in Michigan to enable them to utilize these technologies for career/business growth.

    Lunch & Learn w. Barrett Matthews

    in Self Help

    Join us on Lunch & Learn with Chris & Barrett as we bring on our guest co-host, Brent Harding


    Carol J. Matthews-Shifflett, MA


    Executive Director of the Sojourner Group, Salt Lake City, Utah. Ms. Shifflett has a Bachelors Degree in Cultural Anthropology and earned her Masters Degree in Community Leadership. After returning to college as a non-traditional student, Carol has been a proponent of empowering women and encouraging them to reach their highest potential. As the former Volunteer Coordinator for the YWCA, Salt Lake City, her career interest took on the direction of advocating for women in violent relationships. For the past 15 years she has been drawn to personal conversations with marginalized women of the African and Black Diaspora who often suffer in silence due to lack of cultural understanding from mainstream service providers. Carol has since been zealous in working to ensuring that Black women in Utah find their voices. As an active community leader, she firmly believes that leadership is not an individual venture, but one that involves a collective group of persons and personalities with a common goal of working for the good of the cause. Her chief principles are respect, integrity, communication, and commitment. It is with these qualities that she believes we can all collectively serve marginalized populations who have been victimized by sexual assault and domestic violence, improve the quality of their lives, and assist them on the journey of healthier lifestyles and families.

    Employee Health, Decision Support Tools & More

    in Business

    Hosts Doug Field and Brent Macy are live in the studio this morning with special guests from Perk Health, WiserTogether and SelectAccount. 


    The first guest is Zach McGill, CEO of Perk Health. One of the most important outcomes of health care consumerism is the incentive for people to live healthier lives. In this interview, Zach will discuss why the ultimate goal of health care should be to keep people from needing to go to hospital and the problems with preventive health today.


    For the second segment, the hosts welcome Vineeta Mooganur, WiserTogether, and David Cantu, SelectAccount, to the program to discuss how employers can fill the void with reliable and powerful consumer tools. In an effort to contain costs, the HDHP adoption rate among employers continues to grow. With these new consumerism-labeled strategies, many employees are faced with higher health care liabilities than they are used to. There is a growing need to understand best treatment options and the cost of care, making it necessary to provide easily accessible decision support tools and resources. To fill this void and help guide consumers along the continuum of care, SelectAccount and WiserTogether are partnering to provide comprehensive information in a convenient location.

    Talking In Circles: Coke 600 Review, Richard Petty's Comments, Ty Dillon

    in Sports

    On this episode of Talking In Circles we review last weekend's Coca-Cola 600 and has Toyota caught the other teams on the intermeidate tracks? What does that win do for Carl Edwards. 


    Plus, NASCAR legend Richard Petty gave his take on what he would like to see for changes in the NASCAR rule book and believe it or not, it made a ton of sense. 


    Also Ty Dillon is spending another year in the XFINITY Series in 2016. The original plan was to move Dillon to the Sprint Cup Series after 2 years of XFINITY Series racing but that is no longer the case. Is this a good move for RCR and Dillon? Or is this just a result of a team not being able to find sponsorship? 


    The Ratings for the Coca-Cola 600 failed to eclispe the Indy 500 for the first time in 10 years. Sign of things to come or just a blip on the radar? 


    Plus we preview the FedEx 400 Benefitting Autism Speaks from Dover International Speedway. We will win? Who will run good and who will struggle and who needs a good run? 


    Plus we take your phone calls. 917-889-8280

    Pell Grants For Inmates! SMDH

    in Politics Conservative

    President Barack Obama and his administration support taking Pell Grant money from veterans and giving it to prison inmates.  This is simply despicable to me and it should be to you as well!


    We all should be outraged at this proposal.  Do we really want our tax dollars taken away from the people that put their lives on the line to protect this country?  The VA is in enough turmoil right now.  Veterans are not receiving adequate medical care right now because of scandal surrounding a secret list of patients waiting for care.


    This is an insult to all of the men and women that wear the military uniform.  How can any of us even consider deferring money from our veterans in order to give it to people that are being punished for crimes committed in this country?


     


    Al Sharpton Says the Texas Floods Are God's Rebuke!


    Al Sharpton has made another ridiculous accusation and blamed the floods in Texas on climate control and God's rebuke.  He has made statements like this in the past over natural disaster.  This time even the left wing media is calling him out on this.


     It is a wonder to me how he is able to hold on to his job at MSNBC after such an insensitive and inflammatory remark.  Sharpton has one of the lowest rate shows on that network and no major sponsors.  Who does Al have something on in order to keep his position?  Further more why has he had access to the president even more than some of the cabinet?


     


    ?Was It A Good Move for Carly Fiorina to Crash Hillary's Event?


    Many are saying that it was a mistake for Carly to try and upstage Clinton yesterday.  She staged a press conference outside of the hotel where Clinton was speaking.  Does any one believe it when she said she had this even scheduled for months?
