GRB Aug 28, 2010

Well here we are again! Sometimes you just can't seem to win, but the show still goes on.

Sorry that it’s a bit difficult to hear me. Even with all the tests before the show, there’s that one variable that creeps into the works and you only find out later when it shows up. Kinda like that one night stand you had and there’s something odd on your lip that next morning.

Thanks for hanging out with us and hopefully we'll have things firing on all cylinders next time.

Here’s the list of topics we chatted about during the show and well catch ya on the flipside.

Wear wristwatch? Use e-mail? Not for Class of '14
The Associated Press
Tuesday, August 17, 2010 Every year, Beloit College in Beloit, Wis., releases its Mindset List to give a snapshot of the world view of the incoming freshmen class. The list for the Class of 2014:

Some Highlights

1. Few in the class know how to write in cursive.

2. E-mail is just too slow, and they seldom if ever use snail mail. Texting – Asians pushed and used longer – easier to hear than cell phone

3. "Go west, young college grad," has always implied "and don't stop until you get to Asia and learn Chinese along the way."

7. "Caramel macchiato" and "venti half-cafvanilla latte" have always been street corner lingo.

18. Fergie is a pop singer, not a princess.

19. They never twisted the coiled handset wire aimlessly around their wrists while chatting on the phone.

Dogs can sense cancer
By Maggie Koerth for MSN Health & Fitness
Researchers wondered if canines could be trained to smell the chemical difference between patients with cancer and those without. So far, the results have been promising. Studies show test dogs can accurately pick out patients with lung, breast, ovarian and bladder cancers. In some cases, the pups have hit accuracy rates as high as 97 percent.

Pet Insurance

Hambone Awards
Every vote counts, and this August 2 through 16, we want yours! After a year of waiting, it’s time once again for you, the people, to choose the recipient of the 2010 VPI Hambone Award for the most unusual pet insurance claim of the year. Competition is tough among this year’s twelve nominees
Each year, VPI looks through the more than 1 million claims submitted to the company, and the most unusual of the bunch receives the annual VPI Hambone Award. Last year’s Hambone Award went to Lulu, a hungry bulldog that gobbled up 15 pacifiers, a bottle cap, and piece of a basketball! Lulu made a full recovery and went on to star in a Rachael Ray Show segment about the VPI Hambone Award. The VPI Hambone Award is named in honor of a VPI-insured dog that got stuck in a refrigerator and ate an entire Thanksgiving ham while waiting for someone to find him. The dog was eventually found, with a licked-clean hambone and a mild case of hypothermia.
