LOS ANGELES -- Kids and families nationwide know and love the music of L.A.-based composer/performers Andrew & Pollyfrom hearing the duo's songs on Nickelodeon's Wallykazam!, as well as the score to the Nick digital series Welcome ToThe Wayne. Soon they will get to hear more with the September 25th release of Andrew & Polly's second album of playful pop tunes for kids, appropriately titled Odds & Ends.
Andrew Barkan and Polly Hall are in demand for their sparkling music for films, TV, and commercials, but their true love is creating and performing music for children. The married couple makes no bones about where their priorities lie. According to Andrew, "The commercial accolades are nice, but much more meaningful to us was winning the prestigious ASCAP Foundation Joe Raposo Children's Music Award for the song 'When You're A Dog' from our debut children's album, Up and At 'Em!"
Constraints need not lead to conformity. We all learn that no two snowflakes are alike and yet the properties that dictate how liquid water crystalizes are the same for each. The Common Core are a set of standards that leave room for considerable educational creativity and even demand that students delve deeper into English Language Arts (ELA) and Math content and processes than was common prior to these standards. The tendency, however, is to view the standards as what should be taught rather than what students should learn and, even then, just the minimum of what they should learn. Our guests on this show will share how they have accommodated and possibly embraced Common Core as they create products that improve student learning and support educators in the shift to Common Core.
Guests at the table:
Polly Stansell, SVP Strategy & Product Development at Voyager Learning
Janet Pittock, VP Curriculum at Redbird Advanced Learning
Michael Golden, CEO at Educurious
A FLAG FOR THE FLYING DRAGON~
It's business as usual on the Flying Dragon. Their mission is to find a flag for the ship. Captain No Beard sighs, "Being a captain is hard work," as he watches the busy crew preparing the vessel for their next adventure.
Polly is giving out pretzels; Linus is polishing a lamp. Matie is cracking coconuts, Cayla is stuffing holes, and Hallie is swabbing the deck. High overhead, trouble is brewing, and it is not the weather.
Mongo does not want any help from the newest crew member, and it is creating a hurricane of a mess on board.
The team must come together and find a task that will fit Zachary without interfering with their own fun. On the way, they acquire a flag that will unite them as both friends and crew.
Join the problem-solving crew of the Flying Dragon as they find a flag for their ship and a job for Zach.

Tonight's special guest is Polly Moore from Atlanta, Georgia, a returning NAASCA family member. Polly is the Executive Administrative Assistant of Angela Williams, Founder of VOICE Today, a non-profit organization whose mission is to break the cycle and silence of child sexual abuse through awareness, prevention, and healing programs. She began volunteering with VOICE Today on July 17, 2012, the day after she broke her silence. She'd found her voice at VOICE Today's support group the night before. Polly grew up with six siblings in Mobile, Alabama, but was only 8 years old when her father died of lung cancer. Soon two neighborhood boys began to molest her, friends of her older twin brothers. A couple of years later she was assaulted by another neighbor and later by her older brother. She was able to break away from the abuse at the age of twelve, but was by then deep in the darkness of isolation. Polly is now a mother and grandmother, and has lived in Atlanta for the past 15 years. She is contemplating returning to finish her final year at Western Carolina University where she majored in Accounting, and has become a devoted advocate for adult survivors of Child Sexual Abuse. Polly says she will forever continue to help fellow adult survivors find their voice and welcome their healing through the working of Angela Williams and VOICE Today.
Hello everyone, this is Andre Traversa, otherwise known as Andre Controversa, spreading controversy wherever I go.
We have a packed hot show tonight, only an hour long, but with two hot segments.
Up first will be Melissa Klein.
Melissa is one of the first original bakers who bravely refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple and is being fined by an administrative law court in the state of Oregon.
No trial, no jury, no due process; just an un-American assault on religious liberty.
As many of you know, GoFundMe took down her account. Her company is called Sweet Cakes by Melissa.
But thankfully, she has found funding through an alternative site called Continue to Give, a service that helps people give to charities and Christian ministries.
We will have one of the founders of that ministry on the air as well. That will take up the first 30 minutes.
The second half of the show will be taken up by a hot debate. We will be joined by Kathy Alderman of Planned Parenthood Always Votes Colorado.
The topic will be the Democratic defeat of a fetal homicide bill. Opposing her on this issue is Polly Lawrence, Republican state rep and assistant House minority leader.
Tune in tonight at 9-00 Ct at www.blogtalkradio.com/andrecontroversa.
Let's get some callers on this one. Please call in at 914-803-4350. I look forward to a hot show.
Andre Traversa, partner, Epic Quest Media

Why is it important for us to save our environment to save ourselves?
According to my guest Polly Higgins the extensive damage or loss of the ecosystem of a given territory - be made a legally recognized crime. Polly is a passionate advocate for more comprehensive environmental safeguard. Polly has realized that great change, and thereby the greatness, begins with the individual self, and that before we can break the cycle of environmental harm playing out across the world, each one of us must break our own personal Ecocides. “I Dare you to be great” a book by Polly Higgins signals rousing call to arms for all mankind to join her in one giant leap toward greatness.
“I Dare you to be great” explores Polly Higgins’ story as an Earth lawyer as she discovers how we can create a legal duty of care for the Earth – a law of Ecocide. We have a choice: break our chains and create a greater freedom, or remain enslaved to an era of Ecocide. Polly invites in a conversation of a different kind; firing up a neural pathway of exploration that takes us into the unknown yet expands our vision of what our legacy could be. Sharing her insights, she sheds a light on what is possible – a vision far greater and more beautiful than we have dared before.

Jack the Ripper stalked the streets of London’s East End from August through November of 1888 in what is dubbed the ‘Autumn of Terror’. However, the grisly ripping of Polly Nichols on August 31st was not the first unsolved murder of the year. The April murder of Emma Smith and the August murder of Martha Tabram both occurred on bank holidays. They baffled the police and press alike and were assumed by the original investigators to have been the first murders in the series. Where they correct? In this provocative work of literary archeology, author Tom Wescott places these early murders in their proper historical context and digs to unearth new evidence and hard facts not seen in over 125 years. The Bank Holiday Murders is the only book of its kind. It eschews the tired approach of unsatisfying ‘final solutions’ in favor of solid research, logical reasoning and new information. The clues followed are not drawn from imagination but from the actual police reports and press accounts of the time. The questions asked by Wescott are ones first suggested by the original investigators but lost to time until now. The answers provided are compelling and sometimes explosive. Among the revelations are: • New information linking the murders of Smith & Tabram to the same killer(s). • Proof that the police did not believe key witnesses in either case. • Proof that at least one of these witnesses was working with the murderer. • New evidence connecting many of the victims that may lead to their actual slayers. • Information on Emily Horsnell, the ACTUAL first Whitechapel murder victim. • The hidden truth of ‘Leather Apron’ and its role in unraveling the Ripper mystery. • Proof of a corrupt police sergeant who thwarted the investigation. Was he protecting the Ripper? THE BANK HOLIDAY MURDERS: The True Story of the First Whitechapel Murders-Tom Wescott.
