In April a report was released showing that more than 9 million young adults, or 27 percent of all Americans ages 17 to 24, are too overweight to join the military and that national security in the year 2030 is "absolutely dependent" on reversing child obesity rates. According to the authors of the report we need to eliminate junk food and high-calorie beverages from schools, put more money into creating school lunch programs that serve real food to children. http://tinyurl.com/y7akr8m

Right now there are more unanswered questions than answers about what is happening with the hemorrhaging oil gusher at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico and what will be its short and long term environmental, health and economic consequences. Portland environmental writer Lizzie Grossman returns from a trip to Gulf of Mexico to report on what she saw, the people she met and her first-hand impressions on the immensity of disaster created by the BP Oil hemorrhage on the floor of the Gulf of Mexico. We talk about the destruction that is already evident from this disaster and the even more disquieting concerns about what is yet to unfold.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 07/06/10

Air date: 
Tue, 07/06/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe talks with a group of bike-based entrepreneurs about pedaling one’s goods on the street.

Sol Pops, SoupCycle and B-Line Sustainable Urban Delivery are all Portland-based small businesses driven by a common factor: bicycles. But what’s it like to depend on human-powered transportation for your livelihood? It’s a sustainable, intimate and decidedly local form of commerce, sure, but one imagines that Januaries are likely to be extra long.

Noah Cable, Aaron Harmon and Danielle Koppel of Sol Pops, along with Jed Lazar of SoupCycle and Franklin Jones of B-Line, join Abe in studio to discuss doing business from atop a bicycle.
