|A peculiarity regarding the ups and downs of living in Newfoundland has sprung back to life. Up the shore? Down on the Labrador? Anthony, Nancy, Cec and reporter Zach Goudie take a run at the debate with some help from Morning Show listeners.|
Mount Pearl-Paradise-St. John's Chamber Of Commerce?
With news that Mount Pearl and Paradise are forming a joint Chamber of Commerce, the mayor of St. John's says it's time for them to join the St. John's Board of Trade. Anthony speaks with St. John's mayor Dennis O'Keefe about his challenge.
International students choose English names
St. John's is becoming a more racially and culturally diverse place, but many people who come here are leaving something behind: their names. At Memorial University scores of international students are adopting English or western names for themselves, sometimes to fit in, sometimes to avoid being left out. Anthony sits down with reporter Zach Goudie, who has spoken to several such students.
Festival of the Sea
You'll hear even more Irish accents on the Southern Shore this week. A group from Ireland is here for the annual Festival of the Sea which links southeast Ireland - a place where many Newfoundlanders emigrated from - with people in this area. Anthony calls Ferryland to find Mick Casey from Bryan's Town, County Wexford in Ireland.
Stress and strokes
Dr. Peter Lin stops by to tell Anthony about a new study linking strokes with depression.
