Code-Switching

Posted by: danny 9/24/2010 8:49 PM

Friday, September 24

“Code-Switching” is the ability to transition from an informal speech pattern to a more formal type of speech. HearSay guest-host Barbara Hamm Lee is the executive producer of the upcoming “Code-Switching” documentary on WHRO-TV 15 and today she’ll preview the program.  The documentary examines how a person’s inability to “code-switch” can impact where he or she works and what he or she earns.  We’ll also examine how the media has covered the issue over the years.

Childhood Obesity: Healthy Habits for Hampton Roads

The chronic diseases caused by childhood obesity and the health costs that follow can impact all of society at large. This year, First Lady Michelle Obama launched a campaign called "Let's Move," targeting the issue and pledging to end childhood obesity within a generation.  The WHRO Center for Regional Citizenship has long focused on the childhood obesity epidemic.  Right now, it’s partnering with the Richmond-based Interfaith Center for Public Policy to promote a new program: "Healthy Habits for Hampton Roads.”  We’ll also explore how some say equitable transportation policy can even reverse childhood obesity by keeping kids moving.  Join us!

Pet Health: Breed-Specific Legislation

Posted by: danny 9/22/2010 5:19 PM

Wednesday, September 22
Are some dog breeds more aggressive because of biology, or because they were trained that way? What determines whether a dog is vicious-- its breed or whether its attacked a human, dog or cat? Some cities and states have breed-specific legislation which restricts or prohibits owning certain canine breeds. HearSay Veterinarian Phyllis Neumann from Todds Lane Veterinary Hospital in Hampton will discuss some of the pros and cons of breed-specific restrictions. We'll also take your pet health questions.

From The Headlines - Transit, Telecommuting and Shorter Workweeks

Posted by: danny 9/20/2010 6:16 PM

Monday, September 20

Economic concerns, energy savings and traffic congestion are the main reasons Virginia is considering a four-day workweek for state employees. Last week, Governor McDonnell's newly formed Reform and Restructuring Commission recommended the plan, which would mean longer, 10-hour work days, but shorter work weeks. But is that such a good idea? Would the shorter workweek mean a customer service bottleneck for state agencies like the Department of Motor Vehicles and the Virginia Employment Commission?
Joining the discussion are Dan Bell from Canon Information Technology Services in Chesapeake, which uses 4X10 scheduling whenever possible. We'll also talk about another possible solution to the same concerns - telecommuting, or teleworking. Jennifer Alcott, programs director for TeleworkVA will discuss how telecommuting works and initiatives to create more teleworking jobs in Virginia.
We'll also be joined by Hampton Roads Transit CEO and President Philip Shucet, who will discuss how public transit is moving forward for HRT Try Transit Week.
