Product Safety Investigator Maryanne McGerty-Sieber returns for her seasonal update on safety with information from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. After a review of recalls and the mission of the agency, overseeing the consumer products sold in the US, we discussed pool safety – remember, barriers, the more the better, gas grills and sports equipment. She also discussed summer rentals and how to access them for children’s safety. We also discussed bad weather, while it is hurricane season she reminds us that any bad storm can take out power for weeks at a time, she offered survival kit recommendations and grill and portable generator safety information. Finally, we discussed the resources offered by CPSC, brochures and pamphlets – in multiple languages – for keeping your family and neighbors safe, information for church and civic groups to use to protect children and the elderly in the community.

Jewish Perspectives on the News and Politics with Burt Siegel

This program will not hold back on what the host and his guests believe is wrong with an American society in which anti-Jewish sentiments as well as racism have become too often tolerated, where cooperation across party lines is treated as treachery, where immigrants and refugees are seen as a threat to the “American Way of Life” and the gap between the ultra wealthy and the average American is ever widening. While it will reflect the values of Judaism and the Democratic party all are welcomed to share their thoughts regarding how we can achieve the dream of what our nation aspires to be about.
