Saturday 10-3-15 6pm ET-
Join us with our guest and co-host, Tom Kyrk of Road Tested Living as we discuss the hottest topics on AskTheTrucker “Live’ Truck Driver Health Open Forum.
Professional drivers are more aware of the dangers of their compromised food supply, the increase in illnesses such as diagnosed diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and increased autoimmune disease.
Because of awareness, truckers are now more concerned and actively involved by taking proactive measures to improve their health.
You know who else has announced they are going to become proactively involved with driver health? The FMCSA. On September 21st and 22nd FMCSA's Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Council ( MCSAC) and the Medical Review Board (MRB) opened up discussion regarding the Health and Wellness of the professional Driver.
Tonight we will discuss this newly announced involved by the FMCSA and determine if becoming involved with truck driver health and wellness is for the earnest regard of the professional driver? Or.... is it to become just one more way the government will become even more involved with driver lives.
We’ll also be discussing , unsafe cookware to avoid in your truck, what kind of diet programs to stay away from, and the new craze on “salts” is there any really any differences?
Be a part of the show tonight. Call in number is 347-826-9170
"Truck Driver Health- The "best" health program for you is.... "
Thursday 6PM ET 347-826-917
As move forward with Driver Health discussions we realize more and more that there is no "one size fits all health program" . If you believe there is, you're setting yourself up for failure.
We can take in all the information we want, but the bottom line is we need to apply knowledge to our lives, and what works for John, may not work for Mary, and yet John and Mary are BOTH improving their health. How could that be?
Although than most people concerned about health will agree to avoid: processed foods, trans fats, GMO's, sugar, soda ,artificial ingredients and chemicals, pesticides, herbicides..... AND to increase organic food, water consumption, exercise,.... There still needs to be that all important consideration of the Person making the change.
So what diet is best? Here's a few choices : Paleo Diet, Vegan Diet, Vegetarian Diet, Raw Diet, Zone Diet, Atkins Diet... and the list goes on.
Join us tonight as Donna Smith of Trucking Social Media and Tom Kyrk of Road Tested Living discuss the absolute BEST health program for YOU... Call us and share how you either have achieved, or are in the process of achieving your goal towards PERSONALIZED optimal health.
Haven't Decided which health program is best for you?
We hope by the time the show is over tonight...... YOU"LL KNOW.
CALL IN 347-826-9170 and share your thoughts, knowledge, and testimony with us!
Thursday 5-21-15 6PM ET Tonight we are going to combine 2 of the hottest issues in Trucking; Truck Driver Health and Trucker Wages.
We all know that the Trucker Lifestyle drastically affects their Health, but what about how drivers are paid? Could that be weighing in on driver health also? Our guest tonight believes it does.
Our guest will be Pat Hockaday from TruckersUnited.org. Mr Hockaday is known for JoJo's Paper, an all-out crusade to change the way drivers are paid.
Pat will share some of his thoughts and solutions about driver wages, as well as discuss how trucking and the present trucker wage formula affects driver health.
Join in on the conversation by calling in 347-826-9170 and Press 1 on your keypad to let us know you would like to make a comment or ask a question.
Is the cybersecurity skill shortage actually a generation gap? It would seem so from the results of a recent global survey of 4000 young adults by Raytheon and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA). Among the findings: Only half of the men in the survey said they knew what a cybersecurity job entails; for millennial women, awareness was even lower – just one-third of respondents.
Join us for the next episode of Dark Reading Radio where Dark Reading Executive Editor Kelly Jackson Higgins will lead an in-depth discussion about what it will take for 18 to 34-year-olds to warm up to an exciting and rewarding career in information security – and what is holding them back. Our guests will include authors of the Raytheon/NCSA report, along with millennials Kerstyn Clover, a staff consultant on the SecureState Attack and Defense Team and Ryan Sepe, information security analyst at Radian Group Inc.

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.
This show we will be discussing the issue of the man shortage plagueing American Society. We also will address the issue of what women think men value in relationships, education, money, status etc. In this discussion Sister V will be weighing in regarding this conversation.

This show may spark some high emotional chit chat.
The loss of independence is what Sandra Williams misses most since her brain injury. She misses running and having energy to do all the things she wants to do. The biggest tip Sandra can offer other survivors is "Don't listen to negative comments or even employers that tell you you can't do the job. Listen to your heart, your soul and fight for yourself and others. It will keep you going." Sandra will talk about what keeps her going on "Another Fork in the Road." Please Tune In!
Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating. But as Yogi Berra once said, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it." Life is all about choices!

Trucking Open Forum - Special Alert to discuss Transportation Bill Amendment
Special Show Alert Tuesday 11/17/15
6PM ET Call in 347-826-9170
The House Transportation bill has an amendment, which, if approved in the final version of the House and Senate Transportation bill, could be damaging regarding wages of professional drivers. It's called the Denham Amendment 114-21.
Last week the Truth About Trucking network set out an all out campaign to bring awareness to this harmful amendment.
Listen to Saturdays Denham Amendment segment on AskTheTrucker "Live' here
We have been joined by many, including TruckersUnited.org, the Professional Truckers Association Group, and thousands of drivers throughout the country. But still many are confused as to what the repercussions affecting drivers will be.
Today, OOIDA announced their strong opposition to the Denham Amendment sending a call to action to their members, claiming it would unravel mandated fair-pay for drivers and would empower large carriers to further reduce driver wages. THey also said that It would also gut the ability for states to address critical items like payment for detention time, safety training and medical examinations or other costs associated with licensing procedures.
Tonight we have an additional to our regularly scheduled show to discuss the Denham Amendment and further explain what it would mean to professional drivers if added to the final version of the Transportation bill.
Guests include, NASCAR K&N Pro Series owner, Bill McAnally, of Bill McAnally Racing to chat about their 2015 season in the East and West and perhaps a sneak preview of the 2016 season.
