Soo, did you miss Saturday’s radio show? If so, here’s what you missed…
Cafe Talk topic… What is your favorite Summer Jam? Here’s one of mine…
1st Hour -Top News
Just when we thought that we’d gotten through the week without any major horrific news, these two stories broke…
84 people killed and more than 200 wounded in a terrible terrorist attack in Nice, France. As more than 30,000 gathered at the upscale seaside on Bastile Day to celebrate and watch the fireworks show, a lone Tunisian deliveryman plowed through the crowd with a 19-ton truck. We later learned that Isis claimed responsibility for the deadly attack.
Some 2,800 Turkey military were arrested after forces loyal to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan quashed a coup attempt last Friday night/Saturday morning. Air battles and gunfire left at least 161 people dead and 1,440 injured. The country of Turkey has been in political turmoil from quite some time now; and recently under even more pressure with the influx of millions of refugees who fled neighboring Syria and Iraq. The Islamic State group and Kurdish rebels are also responsible for a series of bloody attacks in Turkey.
In other news, Donald Trump announced Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his vice presidential pick. Hillary Clinton has not yet made a choice. I shared that I believe U. S. Senator and former Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders will be the best choice although his name is not on her short list. The Clinton/Warren ticket, in my opinion, would be a bit much for some male voters in this country. Anyway, both Clinton and Trump are gearing up for their respective party’s National Conventions that will dominate the news for the next 2 weeks.
Hey, did you know that July is National Make a Difference to Children Month? It’s been said that “Societies are often judged by how they treat their children.”

2nd Hour-Entertainment News
During TV Talk, I talked about the Emmy Nominations, Snubs and Surprises; the ESPYs and how LeBron James, Chris Paul, Dwayne Wade, and Carmelo Anthony called for athletes and those with a platform and influence to make a stand against violence of any form. Click here for more TVTalk.
The Passion for Fashion segment was all about summer skin care. Top tips thanks to Dr. Leslie Baumann are basically moisturize and broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 15 or 30. Also, wear sun-protective clothing; sunglasses, and a hat.
Other entertainment news stories, included actress, comedian, Leslie Jones’ struggle to get a designer to dress her for the premiere of the Ghost Busters remake; and how Vulture.com reported that Kate McKinnon is considered the “breakout” actress in the film. It appears that Paul Feig, the movies producer, is consigning on this prediction. Hollywood is apparently catching on too since Kate is being courted for most big-screen studio comedies. Back to Leslie Jones. Since the radio show aired, Leslie has been grossly mistreated and attacked on social media. Please join me in showing her LOVE @lesdoggg on Twitter.
Lastly, I chimed in on the surprise move of Kevin Durant. On July 4th he left the Oklahoma City Thunder to join the Golden State Warriors. He pretty much stated that his reason for the move is that he wants a NBA championship ring. What’s to come of his friendship with Russell Westbrooks? Well, according to Kevin, they talked it out. And, look forward to being opponents for the first time in the careers in the upcoming NBA season.
And that is a wrap, my friends. Remember to follow me on Twitter @marilynscafesoc and http://www.Facebook.com/Marilyn’sCafeSociety.
