Norm is joined in the first hour by the godfather of 1983 litigation, the esteemed John R. Williams. John is a close friend and lifelong mentor for Norm.  Norm wants people to get to know John, who has been practicing in New Haven, Connecticut, since 1969.  Originally from North Dakota, John went to Harvard for undergraduate studies where he worked summers for a conservative republican senator who afforded John the opportunity to work for him while John attended law school and graduated from Georgetown Law in D.C. John was recruited by Aetna, which was opening an in-house lobbying department anchored in Hartford, Connecticut. Pro bono work became immensely popular as a mechanism for big companies to demonstrate "corporate responsibility." It was this fortituous intersection that led to John's passion and widespread impact in the law.  Listen to hear the history of how 1983 litigation was pioneered, how qualified immunity emerged as a response, and where we are as a society now.  Like, share, and subscribe!

We're back to talk current rock news with the weekly edition of New Noize as we close out May of 2022! There's lots to get to so let's get going! A less-than-credible source has stated that Motley Crue are doing rehearsals with Vince Neil's son in case dear old dad isn't up to the task of the upcoming Stadium Tour. Is this a nothingburger or could there be something to it? We share our thoughts. The tongue-meister himself, Gene Simmons, recently made waves at a KISS soundcheck in Hartford, CT as he donned a bath robe (with nothing under it) in front of fans that paid to be in attendance. Chris made a simple joke post on Facebook for laughs and all hell broke loose. We address the God of Slumber as well as some choice comments from the post on social media. Mental health came to the forefront in a couple of recent stories including the recent death of Black Dhalia Murder's Trevor Strnad as well as an out-of-character moment onstage between Metallica's James Hetfield and his band mates. We talk about both stories as well as share our thoughts on mental health struggles. Def Leppard's Joe Elliott recently made headlines calling their upcoming 'Diamond Star Halos' album "career defining" as well as comparing it to some pretty legendary releases by other groups. A few songs have been released so far. We each share our thoughts on what's been released as well as our expectations for the new album. Other stories covered this week include KK Downing getting the green light for the upcoming Judas Priest Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame induction, Spinal Tap finally doing a sequel, and the online original music competition show by Hit Parader called 'No Cover.'

This week on the podcast, (@AugmentedPod) Marty Guay, Vice President of Business Development at Stanley Black & Decker joins us (@StanleyBlkDeckr). In this conversation, futurist Trond Undheim (@trondau) and Marty talk about the Connecticut state initiative designed to enable technology adoption and workforce creation. This is Episode #82 of Season 2 and the topic is Innovation Corridor in Connecticut.Augmented reveals the stories behind the new era of industrial operations, where technology will restore the agility of frontline workers. Technology is changing rapidly. What's next in the digital factory? Who is leading the change? What are the key skills to learn and how to stay up to date on manufacturing and industry 4.0? Augmented is a podcast for industrial leaders, process engineers, and shop floor operators, hosted by futurist Trond Arne Undheim, and presented by Tulip, the frontline operations platform.Trond's takeaway: It has long been the thinking that government-sponsored workforce development is the only way to stimulate, learning, and training at scale. However, that may in fact not be the case and may at times have the adverse consequence that businesses don't invest themselves. But focused funding and initiatives do help and the CT innovation corridor seems well thought out and will presumably revitalize an important area around Hartford, which is much needed. Thanks for listening.

Norm is joined in the second hour by States Attorney General for the District of Hartford, Connecticut, Sharmese Wolcott.  Sharmese and Norm go back many years as legal adversaries. Sharmese joins Norm to discuss what the juvenile justice system is at a fundamental level, the goals thereof, and where the voids in the system reside.  Norm inquires about the concept of "delinquency" and how young a person can be to be "put into the system" or prosecuted, which in the state of Connecticut is the age of 13 years old.  The conversation circles around as Norm acknowledges that the juvenile system is most devoted to rehabilitation and for good reason, a proposition with which Sharmese agrees. However, Norm presses on this.  How serious an offense might a juvenile commit before the case turns from juvenile to adult? What about punishment? Deterrence? Tough questions.  Like, share and subscribe! Norm is live on WICC600 AM every weekday from 12pm ET to 2pm ET. Stream Norm live at https://www.wicc600.com/#. Follow @PattisPodcast on Twitter.

Episode No. 550 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features historian and author Glenda Elizabeth Gilmore and curator Edith Devaney. Gilmore is the author of "Romare Bearden in the Homeland of His Imagination," which was just published by the University of North Carolina Press. The book examines how Bearden's address of his native South -- he was born and was initially raised in the Charlotte, NC area before his family was effectively forced to leave the South -- was informed by the vagaries of memory and even imagination. Gilmore is the Peter V. & C. Vann Woodward Professor Emerita of History at Yale University. Her previous books include "Gender and Jim Crow: Women and the Politics of White Supremacy in North Carolina, 1896-1920," and "Defying Dixie: The Radical Roots of Civil Rights, 1919-1950." Indiebound and Amazon offer "Bearden" for $26-40. Devaney discusses “Milton Avery,” a survey of the artist's career now at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford. The exhibition debuted at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and is in Hartford through June 5. The exhibition features about 70 paintings Avery made between the 1910s and the mid-1960s and emphasizes Avery's interest in color. It's on view at the Wadsworth through June 5. “Avery” was co-organized by the Royal Academy, London, the Wadsworth and MAMFW. Its catalogue was published by the Royal Academy. Indiebound and Amazon offer it for about $45.

Asian American and Pacific Islander history will be required in Connecticut public schools by the 2025-26 school year, according to a new, soon-to-be-signed mandate. The measure was backed by Make Us Visible CT, a grassroots advocacy group working to "build capacity in the Connecticut school system to develop a robust and inclusive Asian American and Pacific Islander curriculum." This hour, we'll hear from one of ten classes participating a community of practice, modeling how this content can be meaningfully taught. UConn Asian and Asian American Studies Institute Activist-in-Residence JHD (Jennifer Heikkila Díaz) is working with Bassick High School in Bridgeport, among other schools in the Bridgeport, New Haven and Hartford areas, to collaborate on culturally-responsive curriculum around Thi Bui's moving graphic memoir, The Best We Could Do. We'll hear from JHD, along with English teacher Ricardo Alvelo and two of his students. Plus, we hear from Kaitlin Tan Fung, a multimedia artist and art educator who developed art projects and prompts to help students respond to the memoir. Thi Bui, an educator herself, learned the graphic novel format in the hopes her book could help to solve the "storytelling problem of how to present history in a way that is human and relatable and not oversimplified.” How can educators participate in that process?

The Friday Newsletter |  Daily Gardener Community   Historical Events 1510 Death of Sandro Botticelli, Italian Renaissance master.  His painting Allegory of Abundance or Autumn is one of his most elaborate and detailed drawings, and it depicts an abundance of flowers and fruits. Sandro painted idyllic garden scenes filled with beautiful women and men from the classical period. His painting, Primavera, depicts nine springtime gods and goddesses from classical mythology in a garden. Venus, the goddess of love, presides over the Garden of the Hesperides. To her right, Flora, the goddess of flowers, sprinkles roses. The garden features orange and laurel trees and dozens of other species of plants.   1642 On this day, Paul de Chomedey, Sieur de Maisonneuve, French military officer, catches his first glimpse of Montreal's landscape. He is recognized as the founder of Fort Ville-Marie (modern-day Montreal) in New France (Province of Quebec, Canada). In George Waldo Browne's 1905 book, The St. Lawrence River: Historical, Legendary, Picturesque, he wrote, On the 17th of May, the rounded slopes of Mount Royal, clad in the delicate green foliage of spring, burst into sight, stirring the hearts of the anxious beholders with newfound joy. They were delighted with the scenery. The fragrance of the springing forest permeated the balmy air, and, what was dearer far to them, over the water and over the landscape, rested an air of peace quite in keeping with their pious purpose. Maisonneuve was the first to step upon the land, and as the others followed him... they fell upon their knees, sending up their songs of praise and thanksgiving. Their first work was to erect an altar at a favorable spot within sight and sound of the riverbank, the women decorating the rough woodwork with some of the wildflowers growing in abundance upon the island, until the whole, looked very beautiful.  Then every member of the party... knelt in solemn silence while M. Barthelemy Vimont... performed ...high mass. As he closed, he addressed his little congregation with these prophetic words: You are a grain of mustard seed that shall rise and grow till its branches overshadow the earth.   1810 Death of Robert Tannahill, Scottish poet, and lyricist. Remembered as the 'Weaver Poet,' Robert was born in Paisley and is often hailed as Paisley's own Robert Burns, as his work is said to rival Robert Burns.  Today in Paisley, a stunning 50ft high mural of a young Robert Tannahill was painted by Mark Worst, collaborating with Paisley Housing Association. The mural overlooks where Robert Tannahill was born on Castle Street in 1774. One of Robert's most beloved songs is Will Ye Go Lassie, Go. The lyrics mention picking Wild Mountain Thyme, a plant known botanically as Thymus serpyllum (TY-mus sir-PIE-lum). Wild Mountain Thyme is a showy, wide growing groundcover from the Old World and has beautiful rose-red flowers and glossy deep green, mat-forming foliage. In the song, the thyme has grown in and around the heather. O the summer time has come And the trees are sweetly bloomin' The wild mountain thyme Grows around the bloomin' heather Will ye go, lassie, go? And we'll all go together To pull wild mountain thyme All around the bloomin' heather Will ye go, lassie, go?   1885 Birth of Elvin Charles Stakman, American plant pathologist. Elvin is remembered for his work identifying and combatting diseases in wheat. In 1917, he married fellow a  plant pathologist named Estelle Louise Jensen. He also encouraged Norman Borlaug to pursue his career in phytopathology after Norman's job at the Forest Service was eliminated due to budget cuts. Elvin was Norman's teacher. And Norman went on to win the Nobel Peace Prize (1970) after discovering dwarf wheat varieties that reduced famine in India, Pakistan, and other third world countries. In 1938, Elvin gave a speech entitled These Shifty Little Enemies that Destroy our Food Crops. During his talk, Elvin focused on one shifty little enemy in particular: rust. Rust is a parasitic fungus that feeds on phytonutrients in grain crops like wheat, oat, and barley. Today, Elvin is remembered with the naming of Stakman Hall - the building where Plant Pathology is taught - at the University of Minnesota's St. Paul campus.  In The Wizard and the Prophet: Two Remarkable Scientists and Their Dueling Visions to Shape Tomorrow's World, Charles Mann reflected, Stakman did not view science as a disinterested quest for knowledge. It was a tool—may be the tool—for human betterment. Not all sciences were equally valuable, as he liked to explain. “Botany,” he said, “is the most important of all sciences, and plant pathology is one of its most essential branches.   Grow That Garden Library™ Book Recommendation 150 Gardens You Need To Visit Before You Die by Stefanie Waldek  This book came out in 2022.

She published a year's worth of entries in her book, The Flower Garden Day by Day.  In 1902, Louisa and her husband moved to Michigan, where they built a home called Orchard House. With the help of a gardener named Frank Ackney, Louisa began to plan and create her garden. She also began writing about her Gardens. Soon, she gave lectures, contributed pieces to magazines, wrote columns, and organized garden clubs. She even became friends with prominent gardeners of her time like Gertrude Jekyll, Charles Sprague Sargent, and the landscape architects Fletcher Steele and Ellen Biddle Shipman. Louisa learned to garden during the heyday of American Garden Culture. Her garden writing in newspaper columns and magazine publications made her the most widely read American Garden author in the United States. Louisa's first book, "The Well-Considered Garden," the preface was written by her dear friend Gertrude Jekyll. In 1915, when the book debuted, it was considered an instant classic in garden literature. Louisa would go on to write a total of nine books. The garden estate known as Blithewold has a copy of "The Well-Considered Garden." Their particular text also contains a handwritten inscription along with Louisa's signature. The inscription borrows a quote from Sir William Temple, who said, "Gardening is an enjoyment and a possession for which no man is too high or too low." Louisa changed the quote and wrote, "Gardening is an enjoyment and a possession for which no woman is too high or too low." Louisa helped start the Garden Club of America and the Women's National Farm and Garden Association. She held leadership positions in both organizations. When her husband died suddenly in 1927, Louisa was forced to sell Orchard House. She moved to Hartford, New York, and bought a property she called Kingstree. This time, she set up a smaller garden. The size meant less work, which accommodated her writing and speaking commitments better. On this day, Louisa wrote in her journal this note of advice about the Peony: May 17. Disbud most of your peonies now; that is, of a cluster of buds, cut off all but the larger central one. Certain varieties, however, are considered more beautiful if left alone to flower as they will. Among these are Alsace Lorraine and La Rosiere.   Thanks for listening to The Daily Gardener And remember: For a happy, healthy life, garden every day.

We love our Patrons!!! What better way to show our appreciation then to let them run the show and tell us about their favorite books. Jackie loves anthologies and now we do too!!! Jackie Ross Flaum, avid water aerobics swimmer, amateur jewelry-maker and eclectic writer, began as a reporter for The Hartford Courant in Hartford, Conn. After moving to Memphis and abandoning reality for fiction, she won first place for romantic suspense in the 21st annual Duel on the Delta and second place in the spring 2019 Short Story Land online competition. Thus encouraged, she tested several flavors of writing--chic lit, mystery, suspense, crime—and had short stories published in anthologies of all genres. To her shock, her first novel of the South in the 1960s is considered historical fiction. “Justice Tomorrow,” introduces investigator Madeline Sterling and Socrates Gray, who are also featured in a short story published in “Now There Was A Story.”. The sequel, “Price of a Future” is due out soon. She is happily married with two daughters, four grandchildren, and one disobedient dog.

Producer/Host: Dr. John Hunt About the host: My Sunday morning short has been running for about 11 years. I've cover a wide range of animal related topics from COVID to porcupines. After graduating from Michigan State University Veterinary School in 1982 I practiced at three different veterinary hospitals in the Hartford, Conn area for 5 years. Then I bought a small part time clinic in Bucksport and turned it into a full time small animal surgery and medicine hospital. From 1987 to 2014 I enjoyed serving the Bucksport-Orland area pet owners. My kids grew up in Bucksport. I was a Boy Scoutmaster for a few years, and coached cross country and track in the Bucksport school system for 20 years. I've written three books working on a fourth. I sold my practice and retired from practicing medicine in 2014. Since “retiring” I've continued Pet Sounds and my monthly Lets Talk Animals show on WERU. I've been teaching at local community colleges, officiating at high school track meets, writing and started a blog on line. I enjoy hiking, reading, writing and anticipate spending more time with my first grandchild.

Rev. Nabil Nour, pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church in Hartford, SD joins Rev. Brady Finnern to study I John 4:7-21. Love is from God. Love is referenced over 20x which fills us with an unconditional love that we fully see with the cross and empty tomb. God's love is in spite of us. This love given to us is not an opportunity to justify something that we desire, but a love that realizes that when we go against His will, His hand of mercy still extends to us. We see God's love actively at work through the Church as she serves their community through food pantries, homeless shelters, homes for pregnant women, and services for all in need. “My song is love unknown, My Savior's love to me, Love to the loveless shown, That they might lovely be. Oh, who am I? That for my sake, My Lord should take Frail flesh and die?" (Lutheran Service Book 430, "My Song is Love Unknown").

Fr. John Gatzak sits down each Sunday with The Most Rev. Leonard P. Blair, Archbishop of Hartford, to chat about the religious issues of the day and the Archbishop answers questions about faith and religion submitted by the listening audience. The Archbishop's Corner airs each Sunday morning at 7:00 and 11:30. As the shepherd of Christ's flock in Connecticut, this kind of relationship and faith exchange is very important. Archbishop Blair cannot be with every member of the archdiocese. This is his way to get down to ear-level with his followers in the faith. Questions are welcome at any time, from anyone, of any age and from anywhere. Ask Archbishop Blair whatever is on your mind. Call 203.805.5047 and record your message on the Archbishop's Hotline or email your question to archbishop@wjmj.org. Along with your question, please include your first name & town of residence! And remember, if you don't ask, you'll never know.
