Many of our loyal listeners know Robin Jones. She has been with the station for many years and started volunteering here as a college student. Robin has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis(MS). Everyone here is really upset and wondering what we can do to help. Thankfully Robin has awesome health insurance through her husband’s work. We talked to Robin about how the station can help and she said she wanted to raise awareness. Continue Reading →
We recently ran a tribute to Jazz and this was one of our most popular segments on the radio. In fact, we expanded the playlist and did two full days of Jazz. Here is a download of the history of Jazz and why we are losing many of the great ones.
United States is home to many popular musicians and bands along with some of the craziest fans in the world. Together they contribute $15 billion to the American economy, which constitutes 30 percent of the global music revenue. Although fans have patronized different genres of music over the years, no other type of music has represented American culture more than Jazz. Continue Reading →
We had a lively discussion about the cost of education on the show last week. Going by the response my show got last week, I can safely state that college tuition is the number one issue impacting students across United States. Agreeably, their fears are not baseless. University of Washington increased its tuition by almost 150 percent between 2003 and 2013. This is five times the rate of inflation during the same period of time. Continue Reading →
The Facts About Water Damage in Schools and How it Affects Us
Greetings and welcome to another one of our world-famous (or infamous) college campus radio station blogs written by yours truly! Now I know that’s a mouthful but try not to let it ruin your mood as I’m sure we all have a very full day ahead of us – most likely filled with exciting schoolwork! All right, I know I’m pushing it so how about we just move on to the topic of the day, yes?
The Cold Hard Truth about Water Damage
Now you’re probably reading this and asking yourself: why water damage? What could that possibly have to do with any of us, especially considering the fact that we aren’t even charged with overall college campus maintenance? Hear me out on this because as much as it might not make sense on the first glance, water damage is something that affects all of us. While I might be talking about how it affects our schools rather than where we live, I’m sure you’ve noticed by now how we all technically are living here for the time being. This is our home away from home and we need to understand that the things that affect this campus also affect us to some extent.
You want a decent example? Okay, how about mold? This unpleasant muck of stuff starts growing when water damage has been around long enough, and it can be pretty bad for our health overall. Mold tends to grow where moisture has become stale and bacteria have been around long enough. This means that those dormitories you sleep in could very well be holding water damage, which is why is why we all need to watch out. Mold Remediation Pros is a mold removal website where you can not only learn more about mold and how it forms but it also provides services (such as a free inspection!) for anyone who wishes it. Contrary to popular belief, you can actually make a difference in this school if you’re willing to try.
How Does One Spot Water Damage?
Barring the very obvious flood that is very likely to tell you about water damage, it can be pretty subtle overall. Otherwise, mold would never have a chance to grow because the campus would immediately notice and restore the damage. For those who are interested, water stains in the wall for no apparent reason is a very big sign of water damage, as well as parts of a wall that might be swollen or have are softer than the rest thanks to a water leak. If you find any of these signs, make sure to tell a school official if you aren’t able to do it yourself.
Last but not least for water damage restoration, recommend 247 Restoration for the same reasons you would use the mold remediation link I set up earlier – because these guys are professionals and can handle the problem for a reasonable price. Maintaining our home away from home is a crucial part of our responsibility as students. It might seem silly or even stupid but any effort to preserving our campus deserves praise, not ridicule.
When you love your pets so much, you will do everything to keep them safe and protected. You will see to it that their life will be prolonged and they will be given the right kind of treatment they deserve. Thus, in order for you to make it happen, you have to research about your pets well. You need to know exactly what they eat and what they don’t. You also need to know if they have special medications needed or if they have allergies to certain chemicals. By then, you can provide them the right environment where they will feel comfortable.
To top it all, you have to partner with the best vet in order to ensure their health at all times. For emergency cases, you can simply run to the vet and everything will be taken care of. You can sleep each night knowing that should something wrong happen to your pet, you can rely on someone for help. Of course, you already treat your pets like your little babies. Thus, you need to give them only the best. Aside from these tips, you also have to consider the idea of getting pet insurance.
Is Pet Insurance Necessary?
You might say that pet insurance is not really important, but when you are already in an emergency situation, you can say that it is. Of course, pet related treatments and medications might be expensive at times. This is true for animals that have sensitive conditions or those that might undergo serious surgery. Thus, if you cannot afford to pay for the bills, their condition might be at risk. However, when you have insurance, you can just bring them to the vet and everything will be fine.
Cost is Not a Problem
If you worry about the expenses that you will incur, this is not a problem. You can lessen the payment for insurance premiums by getting group pet insurance. If you have lots of pets at home, you can just get one policy that will cover them all. You can also compare prices from various companies by getting insurance quotes. Once you have found the best option, you can go ahead and seal the deal. There are also some companies that provide promotions in order to attract clients. If you happen to find one that provides affordable rates, but are still believable, then you can grab the opportunity. Go ahead and start finding the best insurance for your beloved pet.

We have a new guest coming on the show next week and I’m really looking forward to it. This is someone from Australia who is currently visiting and has agreed to spend a little time being interviewed on our program.
His name is Peter Grace and he is an expert on how to find your perfect niche in life, and in particular how to find work that fits in with your interests and expertise.
He works from home and he is a passionate advocate of the new normal, in other words an advocate of how the Internet has allowed so many people to work from home so that they can combine their home life with their work life and manage the balance effectively. You can find his website featuring stacks of information about working from home at http://www.aussieinvestigator.com/
We had a brief chat on the phone this morning and I was very impressed by his expertise in a range of different areas. He consults to people who are looking to change their life and their occupation.
His main focus is teaching people how to go online to find online opportunities so they can work at home in ways that will benefit them both financially and emotionally. For instance he has a wealth of resources about freelance writing, because many people are making a very good living at home doing freelance writing. He is able to point people to the exact right place so that they can find freelance writing jobs which suit their writing style and personality.
I had no idea there were so many things that you could do from home that would provide you with either part-time or full-time income, however even in our quick chat Peter was able to point me towards a number of different online resources, none of which I’d ever heard of before, which even gave me some ideas of ways that I could work at home, part-time in the evenings and weekends, doing something that I really enjoyed and which would provide some extra income for me.
He has suggestions about all sorts of opportunities to work from home that I’ve never even heard of. Freelance writing was the first he talked about however he went through a whole host of other options such as mystery shopping, data entry, working in virtual data centres or working in virtual call centers, online consulting, working as a virtual assistant, and that’s just the start.
For instance I had no idea that there were thousands of people working from home contracting to the owners of websites to perform various tasks for them that they were unable to perform themselves. It seems there is a whole army of people out there all working from their own homes providing services online and earning a living at the same time at home.
It’s going to be a fascinating interview if our quick chat on the phone this morning was anything to go by. He is a fascinating guy and it certainly a fascinating subject and I’m sure our listeners are going to get lots of takeaway information from it that they can apply, if they wish, to their own circumstances.
We are expecting he will be on the show next week and we will let you know when we have a definite time and date.
YouTube is a visually-powered website and as a result it probably is not going to have support for traditional radio activities. However, you might find that you can get YouTube to work like a radio player for you. This can all work out right if you know what to do to get all that music ready.
Playlists Are Often Popular
Many musical artists on YouTube have their own playlists on the site. This is where similar videos that highlight their music are all arranged and posted together on the same site. These videos can play one after another to make it easier for the music to be played back with ease. It is an amazing feature that adds to the musical functionality of YouTube.
Still, you might have to bear with some advertisements on a playlist. Sometimes a playlist will have ad breaks in between a few videos.
The length of such a playlist can be extensive. Some playlists can go on for at least a few hours if you can find the right ones to use for whatever it is you might have a desire for.
Can You Create a Playlist?
You can also create a playlist on your own. If you have an account with YouTube then you can always click on the proper buttons on each video to add to a list of videos that you want to watch at a given time.
It might be easier for you to find some videos that are well-promoted. Many people will get YouTube views to become visible and while a plan to get YouTube views might be helpful, they may also influence the choices you’ve got when finding different videos for a playlist. You might also want to be careful to see that you will know what is open and how you can use everything to your interest.
YouTube Could Offer Radio Soon
One interesting point about YouTube and radio is that the two worlds may be merging in some capacity in the near future. Sirius XM and YouTube are looking to collaborate on a new music show that highlights music that is popular on YouTube. This could be played back on YouTube or listened to live on Sirius XM-compatible receivers. This can really be attractive considering how long a radio show can be. The possible lack of advertisements may be great considering how Sirius XM is funded by subscribers through the fees they pay each month.
This could be useful but time will tell as to whether or not all people will get access to this feature. The feature will prove to be very interesting to those who want to get the most out of YouTube and enjoy it for all the things that it has to offer.
Radio can be used on YouTube if you know how to get it all ready. It takes a bit of effect and some searching but it can really be worthwhile when you know what to get out of it. Be sure to see what’s open when finding ways to listen to music non-stop on YouTube.
Our guest has interesting views on fish oil supplements and vitamin supplements
Next week we’ll be having a new guest on the show. Someone who’s never been on before but who we will welcome with open arms. He is a reporter and commentator on everything to do with keeping healthy.
His name is John Elderton and he holds some slightly controversial views on staying healthy. For instance he is a huge advocate of maintaining good health by taking vitamins and minerals and other supplements such as fish oil and Omega 3 supplements, vitamin D supplements and more.
Of course he is also a huge advocate of staying healthy by maintaining a healthy diet and also doing plenty of exercise. These days none of that is controversial. In fact it’s pretty much now accepted by mainstream authorities that diet and exercise have a huge role in staying healthy.
However what is more controversial are his views on supplements like fish oil and vitamin supplements. Some medical professionals maintain that supplements such as vitamin and mineral supplements, vitamin D supplements and fish oil supplements are little more than hocus-pocus, and a waste of money.
In fact to John has written a number of newspaper articles recently suggesting that most of us should be taking fish oil supplements. He has outlined his reasons why he holds that view in those articles.
According to John, and a lot of other medical researchers, most Americans are now deficient in omega 3 fats. The reason is that omega 3 fats come from fish, and most of us are eating very little fish now.
Many people are deficient in Omega 3
Studies have shown that populations of people who eat large amounts of fish have much lower rates of many lifestyle diseases such as cardiovascular disease.
Studies with Eskimos have demonstrated that they have particularly low levels of cardiovascular disease and some other lifestyle diseases common to those of us in the US.
And John has carefully examined much of the research about the health benefits of increasing the amount of fish oil in your diet, for the omega 3 fatty acids found in fish oil, and has found significant amounts of research that demonstrates that most of us have levels of omega 3 fats that are way too low.
According to John taking a fish oil supplement reduces your risk of heart attack. This is also supported by the American Heart Association. However John also points to research which demonstrates that increasing your intake of fish oil reduces your risk of a whole range of other diseases as well.
John is also a big advocate of vitamin D supplements. Particularly the younger generation, who are now spending much of their time indoors, are deficient in vitamin D as much of our vitamin D comes from exposure to the sun, and without sufficient exposure to the sun our skin is unable to produce sufficient vitamin D.
Will be very interested to see what John has to say about staying healthy. We feel sure that his views will produce some interesting reactions among our listeners and we welcome feedback from our listeners during the show. Any listeners are encouraged to text questions to John which hopefully he will be able to answer during the show.
It should be a great show, we are looking forward to it.
