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.

Join us as we discuss a few of the organizations and driver groups who we have aligned with within the industry, what they are doing to address driver health concerns, and how they are reaching out to drivers to offer help and support.

The onward movement towards improving health within the trucking industry continues. The Mid America Truck Show was the most recent example of the healthy awareness campaign as many within the industry came together to become educated and join forces to encourage others regarding solutions for healthier lifestyles.
Our continued series of health shows will include tonight the topic of GMO's ( genetically modified organisms). This is a topic which is causing concern as well as confusion. On this episode we want to cover the definitions of GMO, what constitutes a GMO, what are the health affects of GMO's, and how can we avoid them.
The term "eat organic" is many times associated when discussing eating healthy, including avoiding the harmful affects of genetically modified food, but often the term organic is also confusing. What constitutes "organic"?

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.
