Here’s what’s coming up this morning on The Brad Davis show featuring Paul Pacelli

  • NEUROPSYCHOLOGIST DR. MICHELLE BENGTSON, will talk aboutDEPRESSION AND SELF HARM ON THE RISE AMONG MILLENNIALS.Young people today are far more likely to be depressed and to self-harm than they were 10 years ago, a new study suggests, as they struggle with body image and social media.  Researchers from University College London (UCL) and the University of Liverpool analysed data from two cohorts of 14-year-old millennials born a decade apart.  Fewer than one in 10 (9 per cent) of those born in the early 90s suffered from depression during their teens, but that rose to more one in seven for youngsters born at the turn of the century (15 per cent).
  • STATE SENATOR GEORGE LOGAN, will call to talk about: Connecticut’s labor market got roughed up in the first two months of 2019, as employers cut 400 jobs in February and economists revised downward a January gain of 1,000 jobs to a loss of 2,500, the state Department of Labor announced Thursday. The unemployment rate in February was unchanged, at 3.8 percent, the same as the U.S. rate.
  • REPUBLICAN STRATEGIST // THOMAS PARTNERS STRATEGIES PRESIDENT JOHN THOMAS, WILL TALK ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP’S INTRAPARTY FEUDS DIVIDE REPUBLICANS. President Trump’s vendettas are splintering Republicans, alienating him from allies on Capitol Hill and stirring drama in the West Wing.  The president has spent the past five days relentlessly attacking John McCain, the late GOP senator from Arizona who succumbed to brain cancer last year.  President Trump is also embroiled in a bizarre feud between White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and her husband, George Conway, a prominent Washington lawyer whose Twitter attacks against the president have ignited a nasty back-and-forth.  Conway has questioned President Trump’s mental stability and alleged the president has “narcissistic personality disorder.”  “You. Are. Nuts.” — Conway in a tweet.  President Trump has blasted back, calling Conway “a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell” who is doing a “disservice” to his wife.  “He’s a whack job, no question about it.” — President Trump
  • SENATOR TONY HWANG will call to talk about:

It’s to wrap up the week the Brad and Paul way! Here’s what’s on tap this today!

  • SENATOR GEORGE LOGAN, will talk about: The Actual Cost of Gov. Lamont’s Tax Increases: $2.4 Billion Per Year
  • SCOTT SNELLINGS, LEGAL ANALYST HANDLED SEVERE CRASH CASES INVOLVING ELDERLY DRIVERS AND WILL TALK ABOUTHOW OLD IS TOO OLD TO DRIVE? More than five million Americans suffer from mild cognitive impairment. Do they possess the judgment to continue driving? According to the CDC, in 2016, about 7,400 adults over the age of 65 were killed and more than 290,000 were treated in emergency departments for injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents. This amounts to almost 800 older people being injured in cars in the U.S. every day, not to mention the younger people they injure in the process. Meanwhile, there were close to 42 million licensed drivers over the age of 65 in 2016, which is a 56 percent increase from 1999.  Laws vary from state to state, and many states have no restrictions.  In Arizona, for those over the age of 65, renewals must occur every five years and be accompanied by a vision test. Over the age of 70, these evaluations must take place in person. California is even more stringent, and its law appeals to my sense of medical justice, where the highway must be as safe a place as possible
  • DOUG EVANS, ARTS ACROSS CONNECTICUT, will talk about the ARTS ACROSS CONNECTICUT.
  • MIKE COPELAND, FOUNDER AND CEO OF SONS OF THUNDER COALITION, will talk about their FREE Education Conference coming up on March 30th at the Crec Academy of Aerospace and Engineering in Windsor.
  • ADDICTION SPECIALIST MICHAEL MOLTHAN, WILL TALK ABOUT:  BLACKOUT DRUNK: BETWEEN SPRING BREAK AND ST. PATTY’S DAY, BINGE DRINKING IN MARCH IS MADNESS. It is the first day of Spring Break and many students are out of town.  Baptist Saint Anthony’s Hospital says it is during these times that their emergency rooms tend to have an increase in heavy teen drinking patients.  Although there are a lot of dangers because of spring breakers binge drinking, there are also many common misconceptions.  Alcohol is a dose-dependent drug and most people who have it in small amounts will feel euphoria and happiness at first, but the problem is they usually do not stop there.   There are a lot of misconceptions when drinking but young adults usually have no idea how much alcohol they can consume and how it is going to affect them.
    How does your state rate and why?
    Why do so many teens take it too far and get blackout drunk?
     Is it peer pressure?
    Do TV shows and social media feeds glamorize it? 
    Excessive drinking is responsible for more than 4,300 deaths among teens each year, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
