Is Your Nest Egg Big Enough?

Is Your Nest Egg Big Enough? October 13, 2014

A hot stock market has made 401K balances look healthier. That is, if you have a 401K. Even those who do likely haven't saved enough. And experts say this past week's market volatility,a 245 point gain followed by a 335-point slide, shows retirement accounts are no sure things. Monday at 9:00 The Sound of Ideas, we'll explore retirement savings with James W. Russell, author of "Social Insecurity," who laments the loss of old-fashioned pensions . Join host Mike McIntyre.

Weekly Regional Roundtable

Weekly Regional Roundtable October 10, 2014

Cleveland cops will soon be able to say, 'you're on candid camera.' But the reasoning for body cameras is very serious. One suburban department isn't thinking cameras as it prepares to bury the department canine amid community anger that the dog's death was avoidable, and an apology from his human partner. And we'll rock the list of who's now eligible for the next induction ceremonies at Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Join host Rick Jackson for The Sound of Ideas.

Home-Based Care for Older Adults

Home-Based Care for Older Adults October 9, 2014

On today's special Be Well edition of the Sound of Ideas, we’ll look state efforts to keep older adults in their own homes, rather than in nursing homes. What does it mean for individuals and families? What options are out there and how do you qualify? Are people who remain at home getting the care they need? What are the financial implications of these efforts? Join us for this discussion and find out about long-term care options for yourself or your loved one.

The Artist as Change Agent

The Artist as Change Agent October 8, 2014

Art isn't just colors on canvass decorating a wall or random words strung together and called a poem. Art, through history, has played an important role in society. And artists, through their work, have provoked us to think, to see, sometimes to act. Wednesday at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas: Artists as social agents and art as a vehicle to spur action. It's the yearlong theme at the Cleveland Institute of Art and the hour long theme of The Sound of Ideas. Join host Mike McIntyre. Photo Credit: Carlos Barria/Reuters

Workplace Violence

Workplace Violence October 7, 2014

Employees expect their workplace to be a safe place and usually it is. But when violence at work makes the headlines, it's worth asking whether you are prepared. Are you? Whether it's a disgruntled employee shooting or even beheading co-workers or simply threats of violence, what actions would you take? On this edition of The Sound of Ideas, we'll discuss workplace violence, how to prevent it and what to do in the rare event it happens at your job.
