TUESDAY 7-3-18

1.      The LeBron James’ giant mural will be coming off the side of Sherwin Williams headquarters at the intersection of Ontario and Huron.  Sherwin Williams says a discussion will take place on what should go up in its place.  What would you like to see on the mural?


2.      At a press conference Monday at its Cleveland facility, the FBI announced the arrest of a man who planned a July 4th, terrorist-style attack in downtown Cleveland. Authorities arrested Demetrius Nathaniel Pitts, also knowns as Abdur Raheem Rafeeq, Sunday around 10 a.m. Special Agent in Charge of the Cleveland FBI Stephen Anthony said Pitts was targeting Voinovich Park, the Coast Guard Station, the Cathedral and other downtown locations.  What are your thoughts on the investigation and the bust?


3.      Longtime Cleveland broadcaster Dick Feagler, known for his satirical, whimsical and common sense commentaries, passed away at the age of 79.  He was a columnist for both the Cleveland Press and the Cleveland Plain Dealer as well as doing commentary on WKYC TV 3 and he hosted “Feagler and Friends” on WVIZ.  Did you know Feagler?  What made his commentaries stand out?


4.    The 4th of July is tomorrow.  Do you think people take our freedom for granted?


5.      Ed Sheeran is being sued by Structured Asset Sales, which owns part of the copyright to Marvin Gaye’s classic hit song “Let’s Get It On” for copyright infringement claiming Sheeran copied it on his song “Thinking Out Loud”.   They are seeking $100 million in damages.  Let’s play both and see what you think. 


6.      Puerto Rico has taken a step toward becoming a U.S. state now that its representative in the House introduced a bill that would make that happen.  Jenifer González-Colón introduced a bill to make the territory a state "no later than January 1, 2021." So far the bill has bipartisan support and currently 37 co-sponsors, a majority of which are Republicans. Last year, 97% of Puerto Ricans voted in favor of statehood in a non-binding referendum.  Are you in favor of Puerto Rico becoming the 51st state?  What would that do for flag sales?


7.      Last week marked the 15th anniversary of the National Do Not Call Registry opening for business. More than 10-million phone numbers were registered within the first four days. The Registry is still around and so are robocalls.  Can anything be done to stop unwanted solicitation?  How often do you get robo called?


8.      A UCLA professor died during a bondage session in a Los Angeles area home. Doran George, 48, was found dead inside the home of Skip Chasey, an executive for Hollywood’s William Morris Endeavor agency and known in the Bondage, Discipline, Sadism and Masochism community also known as BDSM.  The professor had been wrapped “head to toe in plastic wrap and gaffer’s tape, with small breathing holes at the nose and mouth,” during a mummification ritual. When paramedics arrived, they were unable to revive him.  No charges have been filed.  Should the person or people who bound him up be charged in George’s death?


9.      The Center for Disease Control says that about a quarter of all adults in the U.S. get the recommended amount of exercise. According to new stats, 22.9% of people get at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity or 75 minutes of vigorous physical activity each week plus some muscle-strengthening activities.  Do you do any cardio?


10.   President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet following the meeting of NATO in Helsinki, Finland on July 16th. The summit had been in the works for several weeks and was finalized by National security Advisor John Bolton during a meeting with Putin in Moscow this week.  Do you think the summit can lead to a cease fire in Syria?  Will Russia pull out of Syria?
