    Fri, 2 Oct 2015

    Are you a Millennial or do you hire or work with any? (That’s people born between 1981 to 1996.) Companies are looking for ways to keep the millennial job-hopping generation from saying, “I quit.” Many change jobs 11 times between ages 18 & 45...and stay in a job for an average of 2 years. Is that your experience as a Millennial or with Millennials? As more & more Millennials crave a better work-life balance, many employers say their generation causes major problems due to the growing expense of recruiting, hiring and job training. How do you keep a workforce in tact & maintain continuity when Millennials become the base?

    Fri, 2 Oct 2015

    Are you okay with the possibility of being tracked anywhere anytime in order to avoid getting a passport? Even though they say they are prepared, will OMV (office of motor vehicles) be able to handle the onslaught of new applications for the REAL ID card? Louisiana is non-compliant with a federal law (Real ID Act) designed to make driver's licenses more secure, but it has the ability to track where ever you go through the chip. Do you consider Real ID cards a violation of your privacy? This hours guest: Patrick Connick - State Rep District 84

  3. 10-2 The Think Tank 1010am, SHaron Burgess, Mega Churches


    Fri, 2 Oct 2015

    Have you ever attended a Mega church? They’ve recently come under scrutiny for soliciting donations from their followers who cannot afford it....and some for being "cult like." According to the Hartford Institute there are at least 13 in the New Orleans – Baton Rouge area. Sharon Burgess, daughter of a pastor in a small rural town in South Carolina says, " ...anytime a church leader is treated like a rock star, something is bound to go wrong. There has been plenty of media attention on the scandals within the leadership of these churches. These men often live very lavish, materialistic lifestyles and have multiple affairs with different women.” Have you ever attended a mega church and what was your experience? Are they a good path to living a spiritual, righteous life or do they profit from the faith of the vulnerable and unsuspecting? This hours guest: Sharon Burgess - Daughter of a pastor in a small rural town in South Carolina, ex-wife of a pastor & author of a new novel, "Unraveled Faith." (topic: mega churches)
