    Crew Roundtable Bites - Ep8 - Fake News and Real Research

    Crew Roundtable Bites - Ep8 - Fake News and Real Research

    “Fake News” is the zeitgeist of social media! It is incredibly easy in our always-on, connected world to spread lies.  Even respected news organizations fall victim to fake news.  Legitimate journalists sometimes knowingly spread fake news. When they do, and are found out, punishment is swift to maintain journalistic integrity by the publisher of those fake news reports.   What about news spread by people who do NOT claim to be journalists?  What about bloggers, facebook posts, random tweets – is there a way to tell what is fake news, and what is a legitimate news report?  How does a news consumer discern between honest reporting which can in good faith report an erroneous fact, and a full blown intention to deceive by knowingly reporting falsehoods?     How does one root out truth in a seemingly overwhelming pile of lies? JR and Gino discuss the concept of fake news, give free plugs to some news outlets they enjoy, and present tips to help you determine if what you are consuming is real or fake news.  Is that news story too good to be true?  It probably is… Subscribers get the latest and greatest episodes automatically!

    Crew Roundtable Bites - Ep7 - Right to Die

    Crew Roundtable Bites - Ep7 - Right to Die

    Gino and JR discussed death education in episode 4 of Crew Round Table Bites.  In this episode we further explore this topic, discussing living wills and debate Canada's medically assisted death legislation.  There is strong support for this legislation, as well as equally strong opposition.  We breakdown the law, explain it's application provisions, and discuss it as best we can. We reference the case of Terri Schiavo, and the nearly five year legal battle between her husband,  her parents, and the state of Florida. The Schiavo case eventually wound up before the Unites States of America Supreme Court.   This case serves as a warning to everyone the benefits of having your life support decisions made ahead of time.  Speak for yourself while you are able. Do you believe there is a right to die?  Make yourself heard! Subscribers get the latest and greatest episodes automatically!

    Crew Roundtable Bites Episode 6 - Women Helping Men be Better Men Towards Women

    Crew Roundtable Bites Episode 6 - Women Helping Men be Better Men Towards Women

    Are you aware how your actions affect women in certain situations?  Can you define “rape culture”?  Rape culture is a sociological concept used to describe a setting in which rape is pervasive and normalized due to societal attitudes about gender and sexuality. In the aftermath of many allegations of sexual assault against Harvey Weinstein, men have been asking, "How can I help?"  Ms. Nicole Stamp has written a Facebook post to help men behave better towards women, and ultimately, fight against rape culture. If rape culture is a problem caused by some men, all men should be aware of how their behaviour can perpetuate bad behaviour towards women.  The full text of Nicole's post is available at https://www.facebook.com/nicole.stamp/posts/10156116595689341- We ask that everyone, male and female, read it with an open mind.  Discuss it with your friends and family. Reflect on your own behaviour. JR and Gino discuss each item in the post above, and we especially encourage our male listeners to examine their behaviour towards women.  Subscribers get the latest and greatest episodes automatically!

    Crew Round Table Bites: Ep. 5 - Take a Knee

    Crew Round Table Bites: Ep. 5 - Take a Knee

    Protests are a cornerstone of free speech.  Speaking out against perceived wrongdoings by the government, and other authorities, is an essential part of modern western democracy. In 2016, Colin Kaepernick became a national figure after his protest against the oppression of people of color in the United States.  He was a quarterback in the NFL, and protested by not standing while the United States’ national anthem was played before the start of NFL games. Since then he has been demonized, called everything from unpatriotic to a traitor.  He has been accused of being disrespectful to the American flag, to America itself, and American veterans.  He is vilified daily because he chose to exercise his right to free speech.  He has been effectively shut out of playing in the NFL.  Is this right?  Is this the price of protest?
