Memorial Day honors the military personnel who have died while serving in the the United States armed forces and is observed on the last Monday of May. The 3-day weekend also serves as the unofficial start of summer as many Americans begin to travel with the school year winding down and temperatures on the rise. Temperatures haven't been the only thing rising as gas prices continue to increase at record levels. Those prices, however, were not expected to deter drivers as Triple A was predicting record numbers of people to travel by car this weekend. More on gas prices from The Associated Press. The biggest story of the week came on Tuesday out of Uvalde, Texas, where a gunman stormed into Robb Elementary and killed 19 children and two teachers. It was the United States' deadliest school shooting in nearly a decade. Law enforcement officers killed the shooter, identified as 18-year-old Salvador Ramos. The massacre in Uvalde was the deadliest since December 2012, when 20 first graders and six educators were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut by a gunman who had just killed his mother. And for more in-depth coverage, please download our May 25th standalone episode called: Details of the Texas school shooting, deadliest since Sandy Hook. We continue to inch closer to November's midterm elections. In Pennsylvania there is a recount as just 910 votes separated the two leading candidates in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate. The tight race is between celebrity heart surgeon Dr. Mehmet Oz, who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, and former hedge fund CEO David McCormick. The winner will take on Democrat John Fetterman in November. We have highlights from additional contests during Tuesday's latest round of primaries. In other national news, President Joe Biden signed a policing executive order on the anniversary of George Floyd's death and a panel has recommended renaming of army bases. Former President Donald Trump has been ordered to testify and census data has revealed that the nation's biggest cities have been shrinking. Besides gas prices addressed at the top of this show, the state of the economy remains a concern with overall prices at record highs. A poll revealed that support for punishing Russia for its invasion of Ukraine has decreased as concern of the economy has increased. We also look at the latest economic and unemployment reports. Several stories of note regarding the environment. There was a debate about the future of energy at the World Economic Forum. California may have new water restrictions. And scientists are predicting a busy hurricane season. Russia's invasion of Ukraine has lasted three months with no end in sight. Ukraine's president continued his plea for more support. Russia demanded sanctions be lifted. And a diplomat quit his post in protest. Those stories and others. In other international news, President Biden raised eyebrows Monday when he responded about possible defense of Taiwan. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson addressed an investigation into parties during the pandemic. And billionaires are being asked to step up support for the world's hungry. It was a busy week in the world of entertainment. Ray Liotta died and a two-time Oscar winner Kevin Spacey was charged with sexual assault. Bruce Springsteen is heading back on the road while Aerosmith had to pause performances. Major cast changes are coming for Saturday Night Live, Angela Lansbury will be honored and a new round of complaints about a Netflix comedy special. There were several big health stories this week. Besides vaccine and other coronavirus updates, we look at the spread of monkeypox, a peanut butter recall and liver disease in children. More from the AP. Finally, several stories of note regarding social media. A federal appeals court ruled against a Florida law and Twitter was hit with a fine over privacy concerns. Misinformation spread during the Texas shooting. And a law student has turned to TikTok to help migrants understand the immigration system. — Compiled and narrated by Terry Lipshetz from Associated Press reports See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
On today's episode we're talking all about Summer travel tips with kids. We forgot to check our kids' bags before we got to the airport and realized once we got to security that two of our kids had scissors in their bags, which weren't allowed on the flight. Our kids were also able to get copious amounts of sugar during the flight as they would often wait until we weren't looking/paying attention, and then ask the stewardess for soda or other sugary food items, which they would then receive because the flight attendants are very accomodating. What each child needs 0:41Pay attention when flying 2:28What to do with your toddler 4:38A tip about hot drinks 8:00Sunscreen 10:41Bring plenty of everything 14:18“I should've gotten the leash, the baby leash where they can run around, but you've got a hold of them on a leash.

The Social Dilemma (0:00:00) Who listening has had the chance to watch the Social Dilemma documentary? Whether you've seen it or not, the evolution of social media platforms has brought up dozens of debates on what's ethical and what's not in marketing. Joining us today is Prince Ghuman, CEO of neuro-marketing company PopNeuro, here with us to talk about marketing, social media, and the neurological effects of both. Family Photos (0:35:26) You've decided this year, is the year. You've been putting if off for a while now, but you're now steadfast in your decision to make it happen—this is the year that you will finally send out a holiday card. The reason that you've been dragging your feet on this? Family photos. That's right, the bane of impatient parents everywhere. One kid's always cold, one's too tired to smile, and by the end of the session everyone is whining and you swear that you're not going to do family photos until they're all grown up. Fortunately for all of us who struggle with family photos, friend of the show Carrie Ann Rhodes is here to help. Today we're talking all things family photos and how to make it as seamless and fun as possible. Air Filtration 101 (0:52:47) Anyone else miss clear blue skies? With all the wildfires that have been happening the last few months, I know that where we are at least, all the smoke has been giving the sky a hazy look... Makes you wonder how it's affect the air—outdoors and inside. On top of the wildfires, we're also dealing with an airborne virus--and as we spend more time inside right now, I want to know, can our air filters handle all of this? Here to tell us what we need to know about our air filtrations is Tony Abate--certified indoor environmentalist. Creating a Flavor (1:09:56) Have you ever wondered why your favorite gum tastes so good, even though it's just a stick of resin and wax? That's the magic of flavor chemistry, or the science of combining natural food extracts to make the powerfully tasty flavors we already know and love. Today we're joined by Susie Bautista, who is here with us to discuss her time working in flavor chemistry and how flavors can be made. Surviving the Holiday Travel Season (1:25:50) Believe it or not, the holidays are right around the corner, and that means many people are beginning to nail down travel plans. About one third of Americans travel during this time of the year in order to enjoy the holidays with friends and family. However, as travelers try to navigate airports, train stations, and highways with this many people on the go can cause lots of stress and problematic situations... especially during a pandemic. Here with us today is Christopher Elliot, a consumer advocate and author, to tell us how we can survive traveling this holiday season.
