What's For Breakfast? is a favorite feature of the Friday Morning Show.  This morning Heidi and John spoke with 12 year old Evelyn from Bemidji.  Evelyn shared a story of lending a helping hand after she saw an actual hand sticking out from behind a car yesterday.  Her tale is a reminder to all of us to stop and help when we see others in trouble.  Thanks Evelyn for sharing your story and your morning with us!

Tuesday mornings are special around here. We hear phenology from students and listeners from all across northern MN.  We also get the special treat of the weekly phenology report from our favorite nature reporter John Latimer.  For 33 years John Latimer has been documenting the subtle and not so subtle changes in the environment on The Phenology Show.

Winter Storm Warning in effect across the entire region - expected to last until 6pm this evening in NW MN - until midgnight in Itasca/Cass/Crow Wing counties and until 6am in NE MN - St. Louis Counties.

Heavy snow falling up 1 inch per hour - snow and ice covered roads and visibility less than a quarter mile.  Exercise caution if you must travel - and definitely allow extra time if you MUST travel.

Temps in the low to mid 30s and blowing snow up to 45 mph possible.

Have a snow day!  Be careful out there!

But the two approved therapies, with price tags of hundreds of thousands of dollars, have roiled the insurance approval process, leading to delays and, in some cases, denials of coverage, clinicians and analysts say.

Netflix says its faulty forecasting caused it to miss its target for new subscribers, falling short by more than a million even as it reported quarterly earnings that beat analysts' expectations.

Given the attitude with which President Trump has greeted all news of the Russian interference in the 2016 election, his performance in Helsinki on Monday should have come as no surprise.

And yet there was surprise — even shock — when the president of the United States stood on stage alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin and accepted the former KGB officer's denials regarding that interference.

To an outsider, the fancy booths at a June health insurance industry gathering in San Diego, Calif., aren't very compelling: a handful of companies pitching "lifestyle" data and salespeople touting jargony phrases like "social determinants of health."
