Segment A: Sleeping Disorders:  What's "Zzzz" problem? - Encore
If you wake up in the morning exhausted and feel drowsy and irritable throughout the day, you may have a sleeping disorder.  On today's encore edition of HearSay with Cathy Lewis, we'll explore the mysterious nature of sleep disorders, including sleep apnea, and talk with local experts about the latest treatments to the age-old problem of troubled sleep. 

Scheduled Guests:
Dr. I.A. Barot
- Neurology Consultants and Sleep Disorders Center

Dr. Tracey Oliver, DDS - Princess Anne Center for Dental Arts

Dr. Joseph Ojile - founder and CEO of Clayton Sleep Institute

Segment B: Where In the World Was Virginia?


“Virginia” -- the term is the oldest English language place-name in the United States. While the name has remained since first applied in 1584, Virginia’s identity and boundaries have evolved dramatically. Various maps have located Virginia anywhere from the sandy beaches of Bermuda to the tree-lined coasts of New England. Local historian William Wooldridge joins Cathy Lewis to discuss what three centuries of maps say about our commonwealth's identity.

Scheduled Guest:

William C. Wooldridge
- Historian, Former President of the Norfolk Historical Society.

Election Results
Today Cathy Lewis is joined by our resident political experts to discuss the results of the Presidential election and the Virginia House and Senate races.  We'll discuss if the term "battleground state" proved applicable as we consider our region's impact on the election results. We'll also weigh the pressing issues that still must be addressed by the president and a lame duck congress in the two months before the new term begins.

Who's News?
Picking up a paper or catching the evening news were once staples of the daily American routine, but a growing number of young Americans are no longer keeping up to date on current events.  On today's HearSay, host Cathy Lewis discusses the growing population of disinterested Americans with the author of the new book, "Tuned Out: Why Americans Under 40 Don’t Follow the News.” We'll discuss the situation and examine the implications of an entire generation that chooses to be "uninformed."

Scheduled Guest:
Dr. David Mindich
- Professor of Media Studies, Journalism and Digital Arts at Saint Michael's College

Senior Driving (Encore) - November 1, 2012

Thursday, November 1

Senior Driving

By the year 2030, one of every five drivers in America will be 65 years of age or older. While driving may seem like second nature, it does require complex skills that can decline as we age. On today’s broadcast we’ll examine the impact of the aging driver population. On this encore edition of HearSay, we’ll take a look at how to recognize when driving becomes hazardous and how to encourage elderly parents and friends to turn in their keys when driving abilities become impaired.

 

Guests:
Dr. Robert Palmer, director of the EVMS Glennan Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology

Georjeane L. Blumling, Vice-President of Public Relations for AAA Tidewater Virginia
