Truck drivers have been saying for years that, "We need more truck parking" but it seems that it took an article in the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) to get the much needed attention of the general public.
Join us with our special guest Dave Della Maggiore, a 20 year veteran driver as he shares his interview by WSJ journalist Betsy Morris from the report entitled: Too Many Trucks,Too Little Parking. Dave will also share his thoughts about the trip with WSJ photographers and his encounter with a tired trucker at a truck stop in Clines Corners, New Mexico.
Dave and fiancée, Robin, run their active Facebook group, Give Truckers Room, educating drivers of passenger vehicles how to drive safely around semi trucks.
Also joining us will be Nicholas Carretta, President and CEO of UltraShipTMS which specializes in transportation and technology solutions. UltraShipTMS quickly responded to the WSJ article and addressed the serious parking shortage in their own article, “Use YMS to Combat Truck Parking Crisis" which stated:
"Keeping drivers off of public streets, freeway ramps and vulnerable, remote parking places like abandoned lots is a laudable goal. It is also one that logistics as an industry is going to be forced to address."
Mr. Carretta will discuss the UltraYMS tool, allowing the logistics sector to take an active and responsible part in the truck parking shortage solution.
With the shortage of safe and secure parking for our nation's truck drivers back in the news, join us as we discuss the dangers drivers face every day because of the lack of safe truck parking availability.
Who is responsible for putting drivers at added risk? Where are the most difficult areas to find truck parking? How are regulations adding to the already dangerous parking situations? Who doesn't want to see more available truck parking?
Our guests include Hope Rivenburg of Jason's Law, Desiree Wood of Real Women in Trucking and our special guests, Ashley Boeglin and David Clark, wife and father-in-law of Michael Boeglin.
We will also review some startling results of the 2013 National Truck Parking Survey led by Hope and the detailed data analysis performed by Ms. Wood.
Join us for this very important broadcast.

What's driving more single African-American women to adopt? Like other women, African American women dream of marriage and motherhood. But with the grim number of marriageable black men, professional black women aren’t finding husbands.
According to the 2006 U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey, 45 percent of African-American women have never been married, compared with 23 percent of white women.
But the decision to adopt isn't just driven by the paucity of eligible African-American men, others say. "In many cases, it [the pressure to be a mother] begins to set up feelings of unworthiness, poor self-esteem and the feeling that 'I'm not fully a woman,' says Toni Oliver, founder and CEO of Roots Adoption Agency in Atlanta, Georgia, whose agency sees more single African-American women adopting because of infertility issues.
My guest, Lynda Dorman, 50, was one of these women. Lynda, who holds a Master of Business Administration and Master of International Management from the University of Maryland, University College, decided to stop waiting to get married to become a mother and instead adopted sisters, Leah, 9, and Lauren, 8. Lynda shares her story of letting go, forgiveness, and acceptance.

On the brink of potential disaster that could interfere with the food distribution system, growing your own food is now essential. It is time in the northern hemisphere for selecting the non-GMO heirloom seeds, and for preparing to feed the soil for an organic garden. Plan to save food and seeds for the future. You can grow sprouts, lettuce and other crops indoors in winter, even build a greenhouse.
If we are to survive economic collapse, earth changes, social changes, public poisons and the implementation of tyranny and Agenda 21, cooperative preparedness in a community support system is crucial.

Why are black women so angry? Is it due to the shortage of black men? Maybe, it's because we've been let down, put down, and degraded by the ones who claim to have our backs (our black men). Have we been tarnished so much in our lives that we have developed an attitude, or anger that we can't seem to let go? Well, in this segment you will have the opportunity to voice your opinion; on this subject that has always been the center of attention for many years, in our black communities. First we will have the pleasure of hanging out with Young Pharoah, as he takes us into his world as a musician.
