    If you have a newer car that doesn’t require a key, there’s a good chance you have – or almost have – forgotten to turn the engine off. Since you don’t have to turn the key off like in older cars, it is easy to forget. That’s creating some problems that you need to know about if you have – or plan to have a car with a keyless ignition. Then, if there is a bit of the entrepreneurial spirit in your blood, you’ll want to hear what Ross Baird has to say. Ross is a venture capitalist who deals with and funds new entrepreneurial projects. He sees a lot of mistakes made by both investors and entrepreneurs and has some great advice for people who are serious about starting their own company – large or small. Ross is the founder and CEO of Village Capital and author of the book, The Innovation Blind Spot: Why We Back the Wrong Ideas and What to Do About It (http://amzn.to/2xK6fkS). Plus, did you know the best way to prevent the spread of colds and flu is to wash your hands regularly. But it turns out millions of us are not doing a correct and thorough job, which puts you at risk of getting sick. I’ll explain the science and technique of washing your hands well. And why have political discussions gotten so ugly? In fact any discussion or debate of a controversial topic can easily deteriorate into name calling and attacks on a person’s character. People even dissolve friendships because of differences of political opinion. It didn’t used to be that way. So what changed? Deborah Tannen has studied this for a long time. She is a Professor of Linguistics at Georgetown University and author of several books including, The Argument Culture: Stopping America’s War of Words (http://amzn.to/2xJH8yO). Listen as Deborah explains why things have gotten so nasty and what we can all do about it.
