Radio Smart Talk for Monday, March 4:
How often have you heard someone say, "I wish could work from home?" Technology has made working from home a reality for millions of people. Not everyone is satisfied with the experience though. Some say there are too many distractions at home or that they crave face-to-face interaction with other people.
That's how coworking was born in San Francisco in 2006. Coworking is what happens when a group of independent workers -- most often freelancers, those trying to start a business, or the self-employeed -- gather in a shared workspace. There are some 800 coworking spaces across the country including the first one in Harrisburg, which is called st@rtup Harrisburg.
st@rtup Harrisburg's co-founders Adam Brackbill and Adam Porter will appear on Monday's Radio Smart Talk to explain this new workplace development.
We live in a divided nation – not one that is separated by geographic boundaries like before the Civil War, but one that is split politically and ideologically. The epicenter of the great divide is Washington D.C. The federal budget sequester that began Friday is just the latest in a series of crises or cliffs that materialized because Democrats and Republicans can’t come together for the good of the country. How did it get this way?
That's a question we'll pose to Dr. Stephen Medvic, associate professor of government and department chair at Franklin and Marshall College, on Monday's program.
