1.      Game four of the Eastern Conference finals is in the books between the Cavs and Celtics.  What are your thoughts on the series and the Cavs chances to make it to The Finals?


2.      A construction worker was hit by a motor vehicle on Monday on I-71 southbound near the Jennings Freeway.  The worker was transported to Metro Health Medical Center with a fractured leg and was listed in critical condition.  Do motorists drive too fast through construction zones?  Do people pay attention to the speed limit signs?


3.      Lava from the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii has reached the Pacific Ocean and it's creating a toxic situation. As the lava hits the ocean, nearby residents have been warned of ocean plumes and a laze hazard, which is formed when lava meets the ocean and sends hydrochloric acid and steam into the air. It can cause lung damage as well as eye and skin irritation and can change direction with the wind at any time.  If you lived in the area, would you leave or stick it out?


4.      Johnny Manziel is back in pro football after he signed a contract with the Hamilton Tiger Cats of the Canadian Football League.  Will you be rooting for Johnny Football to succeed in the CFL?


5.      Cyberloafing is a term that refers to using the internet at work for non-job related purposes and researchers from the University of South Florida and the University of Haifa looked at productivity data and found that cyberloafing was more of a coping mechanism than an overt effort to waste time. Employees were using the internet to relieve boredom from tasks that they didn’t feel engaged in otherwise.  How much productivity do you think is lost in the workplace to cyberloafing?


6.      Two men have been arrested and a semi-truck has been seized after police discovered the vehicle's driver's side fuel tank was holding $90.8 million worth of liquid meth!  Investigators found 120 gallons of liquid meth in the truck's tank on Saturday, which reportedly equates to 454 kilograms of crystal meth. Raul Arreola of California and Aquileo Pineda of Georgia were booked at the Harnett County Detention Center in Lillington, North Carolina.  Can you imagine being the officers who made a $90 million dollar plus drug bust?


7.      A new survey finds that 25% of children six years-old and under have their own mobile device spending as much as 21 hours a week on their devices; 20% of parents say they did it to keep their kids entertained and 80% say they don’t limit the amount of usage.  Is six years-old too young for kids to have their own mobile device such as an iPad?


8.      The “Fearless Girl” statue in New York City is getting a new home outside the New York Stock Exchange facing the building.  The art work was installed last year by a Boston based firm to encourage more companies to put women on their boards.  It is symbolic that she will be facing down the New York Stock Exchange?  Have you seen or heard about the “Fearless Girl”?


9.      Portland has plans underway to build a brand new ballpark downtown in attempt to lure Major League Baseball to Oregon.  Two Major League teams, the Oakland A’s and the Tampa Rays both are seeking new ballparks but neither are close to finalizing a plan.  Do you think the Portland A’s could become a reality?


10.   New York state’s attorney general announced he will lead a multistate lawsuit to try to stop the federal government from asking people whether they are citizens in the 2020 Census. Eric Schneiderman's statement did not say which states would join the lawsuit and when it would be filed.  Should the census be able to track citizenship?
