And while this conversation has political underpinnings what Jaylin Cavil has to say about a host of issues has a direct impact on economic growth, jobs, financial security and productivity. Jaylin is with the Black Liberation Movement. You would also know them as Black Lives Matter. Here, in this long-form interview we spend time talking about the six "Legislative Demands" the group has taken to the Iowa Legislature as well as why alter the BLM name. Here is Jaylin Cavil.
Over the past several months the nation has been rocked by not only a pandemic but also a movement called No Justice - No Peace. Many in the business community are concerned and a bit reluctant to learn about what the organization is and what they promote. Here Mark Langgin returns to our newscast to talk about things like building the economic base of thousands of individuals who face real economic hardship and you may be surprised at where they live.

Those stories plus you’ll meet hospital CEO Brian Dieter and CFO Gary Botine...as we discuss an issue that impacts nearly every hospital in the nation...and how that impacts you...the citizen. To listen to that segment, click here.
Strap in because this segment deals with every community in the United States. Several months ago U.S. hospitals took advantage of something called the Medicare Accelerated and Advance Payment Program or MAAPP. It was intended to assist hospitals that were too large for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) to pay for staffing and increased costs associated with COVID19. In addition many hospitals were told to cease "elective procedures" which also had an impact on their fiscal health. Here with us today is Brian Dieter, President & CEO of Mary Greeley Medical Center based in Ames, Iowa and Gary Botine the hospital CFO to explain the program, what it means to you and what they hope to negotiate in the coming weeks.
Hang on...we've got Jeff Pitts from Cityview Magazine in to talk about Stuff to DO in the Greater Des Moines Metro. From Twenty-One Pilots and the Bandito Tour to Bucks Hockey to ISU Football to Wine Women and Shoes, a Pumpkin Drag (Really Walk) a free show at Hoyt Sherman, the DSM Symphony, a Gun Show, Baby Shark Live and so much more. And it's all in FUN!
