Europe Day 2013
The first of May, or May Day, is traditionally a time when European workers pause to celebrate labor rights and the reforms previously won from employers and governments.  However, this year's celebration has been anything but, marked instead with anger and outrage as more Europeans are out of work than ever.  We'll examine the implications of eurozone instability with local and international experts on the delicate financial link between the United States and Europe.  

Scheduled Guests:
Dr.Regina Karp
- Director, International Studies Programs, Old Dominion University

Dr. Larry “Chip” Filer - Associate Dean of Executive Programs and External Affairs, Old Dominion University

Dr. Jan Joel Andersson - Dragas Distinguished Visiting Professor, Old Dominion University

Segment B:  How Eskimos Keep Their Babies Warm: And Other Adventures in Parenting

Author Mei-Ling Hopgood joins us to talk about her latest book. Hopgood, a first-time mom from suburban Michigan, now living in Buenos Aires, was shocked that Argentine parents allow their children to stay up until all hours of the night. Could there really be social and developmental advantages to this custom? Driven by a journalist’s curiosity and a new mother’s search for answers, Hopgood embarked on a journey to learn how other cultures approach the challenges all parents face: bedtimes, potty training, feeding, teaching, and more.
