    in Hockey

    The Wings' season is over, but there's still plenty left to talk about on our latest episode of WIIM Radio. Join along as me, Graham, and Kyle break things down while Michelle joins in to edify your asses on the lads in the pipeline. Here's what we got up to.

    The Red Wings are Done - What doomed the Wings this season and into the playoffs? How much of it was just bad luck versus how much of it was stuff they did wrong all season long?
    How to Right the Ship - Fixing the power play (including dealing with Abdelkader), time to stop "playing safe" and playing the damn kids for better or worse.
    Making the Moves - Ken Holland talks about getting more aggressive with trades. We take a look at some names out there and some potential trade destinations for Jimmy Howard.
    Prospects Report - With the Griffins still alive, Michelle runs us down the Griffins as they get ready for their 2nd round series against Lake Erie in the Calder Cup playoffs.
    Reader Questions - Y'all didn't get any FMKs or duck/Tangradi questions, so Kyle and Graham had a great time while I suffered through hosting this portion. Thanks a lot. 
    The Rest of the Playoffs - Who do we hate the least who's left. Find out!

    WIIM Radio is rated R for language and horse whispering.

    Former Senior Policy Advisor at US Dept. of Education Karen Gross

    in Education

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Former Senior Policy Advisor at US Dept. of Education Karen Gross.

    Karen Gross has taught and continues to teach across the educational pipeline.  In spring 2016, she will be teaching at Bennington College in Vermont.  She writes, consults and advises on how to improve student success and has a forthcoming book from Columbia University Teachers College Press titled Shoulders to Lean On (Publication date: 2016) on this very topic.  A former college president and Senior Advisor to the U.S. Department of Education, she currently serves as Senior Counsel to Widmeyer Communications, a Finn Partners Company, and as an Affiliate to the Penn Center for MSI’s at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education. She blogs/writes for many education outlets including Huff Po, WPo, InsideHigherEd, Unplugged, DiverseEducation, Evollution, NAIS, and CollegeAD.

    Karen is proud that two high school seniors at the Emma Willard School have so ably illustrated the Lady Lucy story.  The book and the process of its creation provide a concrete example of the kind of deep collaboration that can occur in education, where the teacher is a learner, and the learners are teachers.  The illustrations, led by Lindsey Slaughter, a gifted art teacher, have made Lady Lucy and the story come alive.  The author and the two illustrators and their teacher see Lady Lucy as a symbol of the power of the possible that rests within all of us.

    Based on the true life of Lady Lucy Duff-Gordon, a leading 19th century fashion designer and survivor of the Titanic, Lady Lucy’s Quest brings vigor to the spirit of young girls everywhere. The illustrations contributed by high school students Ji Woo Jasmine Shin and So Young Jang, also shed light on the importance of empowering female youth.

    When Dreams Die Young: Stop Youth in Engaging in Gun Violence

    in Youth

    Our guest and author, Robert Batista will share his passion and journey to curb and stop gun violence through his writing and novellas called Street Angel and The City Game. He will talk about the “iron pipeline” and the collateral impact of gun violence. Gun violence is not the answer to disputes, disagreements and differences. Robert will discuss non-violent approaches to dealing with these differences and share his stories.

    Robert Batista grew up in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. After attending Brooklyn College, he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force. While stationed at Edwards Air Force Base in Southern California, he began his writing career; first with poetry, then short stories.

    In 1992 he founded Word Is Bond Press and began writing and publishing positive, uplifting stories for teenagers and young adults. His books ‘The City Game’, ‘Street Angel’, and ‘Brooklyn Story’ were picked up by the NYC Department Of Education, and Robert’s powerful message of self-determination and non-violence is now required reading in schools throughout the country. He is currently working on his new young adult novel, ‘Crisis At Central High’.
