Cancer patients often lose their appetite because chemotherapy can cause nausea. But it does something else to make food unappetizing – it changes the way things taste.
Hollye Jacobs was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010, at the age of 39. As a nurse she expected the extreme nausea that often accompanies powerful chemo therapy drugs. But as a patient, she wasn't expecting the taste changes.
Whooping cough made a comeback in California last year, which researchers have linked to vaccine refusals. And with new measles outbreaks in Southern California, New York and British Columbia, the debate over vaccination is also spreading.
Thank you to the 1,200 or so folks of the audience who became members during the Spring 2014 membership drive. About 250 people became new members! The total for the 7 day event was past goal and totaled nearly $177,350.
As you might imagine, for the staff of KGOU, the experience of the membership drive is both exhausting and exhilarating. The exhausting part is easy to understand. The exhilarating part is seeing the names of members set before us from the phone volunteers and staff who process the information.
I have an invitation for you to meet Krista Tippett, host of the very popular program, “On Being.”
Krista Tippett will be here as a guest of KGOU for a free, public lecture on "The Adventure of Civility" and her presentation will allow for audience questions. Her topic is a reflection on the learnings of the Civil Conversations Project. Krista will offer courage and practical guidance for creating hospitable spaces in communities and families.

Mike Neal gets annoyed when he talks about politicians in his state. Just three years ago, when the Common Core State Standards for education were implemented, no one had a problem with them, says Neal, president of the Tulsa, Okla., Regional Chamber of Commerce.
"It's been a really frustrating situation to the business community in Oklahoma in that we've all been on the same page, from the governor, the House, the Senate, school board members," Neal says. "They've all been behind this."
