As I write this blog, I’m listening to a news report about the North Korea and United States “war of words”. Could we be on the brink of war with this tiny country? Would it be fair to do so? Here’s the scoop–North Korea is now threatening to shoot missiles at the U.S. Guam territory and calling President Trump’s response to their aggressive acts “a load of nonsense”. Trump’s paraphrased response…maybe my “fire and fury” statement wasn’t tough enough”. Listen, we will definitely talk about this on the next show so stay tuned.
In the meantime, let’s get to what you missed during Saturday’s radio show…
Café Talk: What does or has the Affirmative Action Program mean/meant to you?
1st Hour– This Day In History and Top News
Here’s a couple of highlights from the “This Day In History” segment…
*In 1833, Chicago was incorporated as a village or town with a population of about 200 people.
*1924: Little Orphan Annie the Comic strip was created.
*1975: Stevie Wonder signs a $13M contract with Motown.
Yes, North Korea was the lead for the Top News segment. However, the story focus was on the potential food shortage that the tiny country may be experiencing. And, the big moral question is should the rest of the world help them? Should politics affect humanitarian aid to the masses of North Korea? Another story that was talked about was the Amazon hiring event that happened in the Chicago suburbs and how thousands showed up to get a job! Many were turned back and referred to www.amazon.force.com to apply. I also shared that Macy’s is hiring. Go to www.macysjobs.com. Lastly, we talked about the announcement from Attorney General Jeff Sessions that the Justice Department will seek to curb affirmative action in a university admissions case. This story took us straight to Cafe Talk. Go to www.marilynscafesociety.com for audio.
Among a couple of other stories, Briana shared this news story that was trending on social media https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/business/wp/2017/08/04/martin-shkreli-jury-enters-fifth-day-of-deliberations/?utm_term=.d73934375498.
