JoAnn Hardesty Interview

Fri, 01/23/2015
Depending on who you talk to, longtime Portland activist JoAnn Hardesty's installation as president of the Portland NAACP is either a blessing or a nightmare.  This local civil rights icon's assumption to the office was compared by one post to the impact of an incoming artillery shell.  Don Merrill talks with Ms. Hardesty about how she's focused on helping the organization renew its tarnished image by cleaning house, setting new standards and following the first rule of getting yourself out of a hole; stop digging.    

Amy Pearl Interview

program date: 
Fri, 01/23/2015
Amy Pearl is the Executive Director of Springboard Innovation, rebranded as Hatch Innovation, a 10-year old non profit that is essentially in the business of building businesses. She was the driving force behind the Community Public Offering, an idea whose implementation by the Oregon Division of Finance and Corporate Securities leap-frogged over statute to become administrative law. As a surprise to everyone, this shortened its implementation from 18 months to three.  Its purpose is to let Oregonians invest real money in real businesses. It's not crowdfunding. And although it is conceptually simple, the devil is in the details. Don Merrill talked with Ms. Pearl about this exciting option for Oregonians that she likes to call "the biggest earthquake to hit Oregon that no one feels".

"Oh, my aching back." And many of the tools of modern medicine aren't very helpful solving or even explaining that pain to the tens of thousands of people who suffer from it each year. In his book, "Watch Your Back", primary care physician Dr. Richard Deyo talks about how treatment for back pain may be much more simple than what we've been led to believe or expect.  Don Merrill talks with Dr. Deyo about why we should give up the quick fix or the magic cure when confronting this age old problem of aging.
