Be Indispensible

The current nationwide unemployment rate sits at just over eight percent.  Job positions that were once taken for granted are now growing fiercely competitive while others are being eliminated entirely, leaving many without gainful employment. So the situation begs the question, "If everyone else is losing their job, how do I keep mine?"  The answer is to make yourself "indispensable."  On today's HearSay we'll tell you how as host Cathy Lewis is joined by executive coach Mark Samuels to discuss how a renewed sense of personal accountability, ambition and versatility can transform you into the one employee that your company just can't survive without.


Scheduled Guest: 

Mark Samuel - Author, "Making Yourself Indispensable: The Power of Personal Accountability"

Tidewater on Two Wheels 

Amidst the local and nationwide discussions about traffic, pollution, fuel prices and obesity, some would argue that there is a unified solution.  Ride a bicycle.  If Americans exchanged just one in five of their average daily car trips with a ride on a bicycle, the effect would be the equivalent of taking 48 million vehicles off the road.  While the math is compelling, the reality facing local cyclists is that our region is far from "bike friendly." We'll consider the challenges facing local bike enthusiasts as we discuss the state of cycling across Hampton Roads.

Wes Cheney - Local Cycling Advocate, Norfolk Bicycling and Pedestrian Trails Commission Member

Elusive Equality

Over half a century ago, our region was a central battleground in the fight for desegregation.  In Norfolk, local activists played a crucial role in the effort to equalize and integrate the city's schools.  Host Cathy Lewis is joined by the authors of the new book, "Elusive Equality: Desegregation and Resegregation in Norfolk's Public Schools." They'll discuss their extensive research of the oral interviews, archival material, and local newspaper coverage that tells the harrowing story of Norfolk's struggle for educational equality.
