Tuesday, December 21 - Reconnecting to the Past - Encore Presentation

Posted by: danny 12/21/2010 7:22 PM

Tuesday, December 21
Reconnecting to the Past - Encore Presentation
Today we bring you conversations with people exploring their past. Gloucester native Carter Catlett Williams and former Virginian-Pilot editor Margaret Edds both lost a parent when they were very young. They've each written a book about the experience of coming to know their lost parent through the letters they left behind (Glorious Adventure and Finding Sara, respectively). We'll talk with each of them about the experience and later in the hour we'll bring you a conversation that originally aired on What Matters with Aniko Tottossy and Ray Evans who both experienced tumultuous times in their formative years. As we reflect on the year and our families during this holiday time, tune in for a special encore presentation of these emotional and compelling stories.

School Nutrition: The Impossible Dream?
Monday, President Obama signed the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act --a bipartisan bill that will simultaneously tackle childhood hunger and obesity by getting healthier food into schools and by expanding free and reduced lunch programs at schools across the nation. It's the first update to school nutrition since the Carter Administration. So what will that mean here in Hampton Roads? Today on HearSay, we'll talk with Helen Phillips, Senior Director of Norfolk Public Schools Nutrition. We'll also hear from super-blogger Catherine McCord, who works tirelessly on her blog "weelicious" to help parents instill healthy eating habits in their children, and themselves.


Guests:
Helen Phillips, SNS - Director of School Nutrition, Norfolk Public Schools and National School Lunch Association President-elect
Marion Nestle, Ph.D. - NYU - Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health
Chef Ann Cooper - School Nutrition Activist "The Renegade Lunch Lady"
Michael Graziano - Filmmaker, "Lunch Line"
Catherine McCord - Blogger and Child Nutrition Activist

HearSay Tech - The Social Network Break-up
Worried about your relationship? Going into the holiday season, maybe you should be. Tracking search terms for breakups across 10,000 Facebook status updates, researchers found that Christmas Day had the fewest splits, but the weeks leading up to Christmas constituted one of two yearly peaks. So what's with all the relationship fallouts when it's supposed to be the most wonderful time of year? Today on HearSay, we'll take a look at those findings. Plus, we'll explore the "social-media" relationship.

Jason & Kelli Krafsky - "The Social Media Couple" and authors of "Facebook and Your Marriage"
