Bill’s Guests for: Thursday, June 21, 2018

7:10: J. Luke Bennecke, a civil and transportation engineer talks with Bill this morning. Luke believes that this kind of planning for the self-driving car is long overdue. In fact, he’s so fed up with the lack of forethought and planning to the transportation systems in this country, that he wrote a near-future thriller about the dangers of what might happen if a terrorist took control of the computer systems in self-driving cars.

Several multinational automotive organizations including Ford, Waymo, and Lyft announced the formation of the new Partnership for Transportation Innovation and Authority (PTIO). The intention behind the PTIO is to begin studying the impact that self-driving cars will have on humans–many of whom rely on driving for a living.

Check out “Civil Terror Gridlock,” by Luke to learn more on this issue.

8:10: Sr. Equis, crack researcher, expert on Green Mafia shenanigans, friend of the Bill Meyer Show AND, all around nice guy joins Bill in studio.

We’ll be touching on how President Trump wants the Supreme Court to dismiss a lawsuit by the Association of O&C Counties, aimed at fighting the expansion of the Cascade – Siskiyou National Monument.

Is the Administration’s move a “stab in the back?” Or, some kind of legal strategy? We’ll discuss it.


Bill’s Guests for: Wednesday, June 20, 2018

6:35: Seline Shenoy, life coach and author of “Beauty Redefined,” calls in from Dubai, UAE to chat with Bill.

Body positivity campaigns are taking over mainstream media. But it’s still not catching on. In fact, beauty bias still has a major impact on a woman’s career. Better-looking women earn significantly more than their less attractive counterparts. According to life coach Seline Shenoy, if we want true equality in the workforce, we need to create a different kind of change.

We must transform our distorted perception of beauty into one that is realistic and wholesome,” says Shenoy, author of Beauty Redefined. “When we embody new standards for beauty, we will convince ourselves and the rest of the world that we are much more than bodies and faces—we are multifaceted individuals with distinct values and purposes and with numerous gifts to share.”

In an engaging and thought-provoking interview, Shenoy can discuss:

8 fundamental changes that must take place in our education system, in the workplace, and in the media in order to redefine beauty forever.

The social media factor: Has this helped—or hurt—the way women view their looks and bodies on a social and professional level?

Igniting the beauty revolution: What we need to do as individuals—and as a society—in order to obliterate our obsession with appearance.

The psychological causes and symptoms of negative self-image, and how this can dangerously impact our careers.

Bill’s Quick Takes

Working through the “Spin” this Monday evening. 1) Isn’t it great that Sen. Jeff Merkley cares so much about foreign nationals and their children? Too bad he doesn’t care about rule of law and protecting opportunities and the economy of actual Americans. The word which comes to mind is “PutzMaster”.

2) New Jersey tyrants automatically call for more gun control after the Art Festival shootings. Never mind that the murderer was a convicted felon gang banger on EARLY RELEASE from prison. Better to punish the innocent law-abiders, right?

3) On the positive side: Two good guys with guns draw down on a murderous carjacker at the Tumwater, WA Walmart on Sunday…They blow him away. Media loved the story when it was “Mass Casualty at Walmart”. When it became “good guys kill dirtbag”, story disappears. Don’t let it.

4) NBC5 reports the “good news” that some 21,000 are eligible for free school lunches in Medford and Grants Pass, even with no school in session, but on the downside “Not everyone is taking advantage of the program”. I miss those ancient long ago times when parents actually thought they had a responsibility to feed their children, don’t you? Now you’re not even supposed to TRY.

And how was YOUR Monday?

Rooster Crows & More

By

Dennis Powers

Since 1953, Rogue River has held its National Rooster Crow Championship on the last Saturday in June; the weekend affair was started to publicize the city (more than the river), and by 1958 a record 263 roosters had been entered. Over 10,000 people attended the 2012 Rooster Crow weekend, which was the city’s 100th-year celebration.

Saturday morning starts off with a 5-K run and 2-mile walk. After the “Rooster Crow Parade,” where nearly anyone can participate, there is a whirlwind of activities, arts and crafts, food booths, exhibits, a special kids’ play area, and (of course) the Annual National Rooster Crow Contest that afternoon.

There are three crowing contests: for young people, adults, and then the one for the real roosters. Audience applause selects the winners of the human crowing contests. The question is always, however, which cock-a-doodle-doo fowl will crow its way into Animal Farm’s hierarchyand be the national winner. The competition is over which rooster can make the greatest number of crows within 30 minutes.

The winner of the first event was Hollerin’ Harry, a bird that crowed 71 times and won $50 for his ownerwhich was great deal of money in the early 1950s. A second contest was held that September (when two contests were then held) with $100 to the winner Beetle Baum, that managed a staggering 109 crows and setting a record that lasted for 25 years. In 1978, White Lightning won with a new course record of 112 crows.

Owners of first-place roosters usually receive $150, and cash prizes typically are paid out for the top five rooster-crowers. The placers in 2012 included names such as Red Ryder (46 crows), El-Ron (38), George of the Jungle, and Mordecai. In 2015, Crow-Darr (52 crows)—owned by a Rogue River Elementary School sixth grader–beat out Slim Field (21 crows).

Nearly every town in Southern Oregon puts on its own “stand out” annual event: Grants Pass (Boatnik), Gold Hill (Gold Dust Day), Central Point (July 4th), Medford (Pear Blossom Festival), Ashland (July 4th is the big one), Shady Cove (Spam Festival) in addition to other weekend and holiday events. The Jackson County Fair, held in mid-July, brings about numbers of events with usually 80,000-plus attending over the six-day event.
