  • Utah Red Flag Law Town Hall
    We are holding an event at the Hinckley Institute to talk about Red Flag Laws or EPRO Laws. ERPO is an extreme risk protection order allows family members or law enforcement to petition a court for an order, where the judge can authorize a temporary removal of a person’s firearms. There must be evidence that the person’s behavior poses an imminent risk or threat of harm to themselves or others. States that have ERPO have seen evidence in a decrease of suicides and gun-related deaths. What are your thoughts on ERPO laws?

  • What you need to know about the potential government shutdown… again
    ABC correspondent Ali Rogin gives details about the potential government shutdown. Republicans and Democrats talks seemed to be going well until Democrats requested a cap on the number of beds that ICE has to detain immigrants. Democrats want ICE to focus on criminals who are suspected of crimes to be the priority, instead of people who have made their way into the United States. Republicans don’t agree with this. This has prevented negotiations to go forward. Republicans have offered a solution to the cap as long as it doesn’t include criminals. Democrats have rejected this solution. What do you think about the Democrat's request? JayMac News Show is usually hosted by KSL News Radio's Jay McFarland, who also hosts the fictional podcast, Hosts of Eden.

  • Facts: Women’s brains are younger than men’s brains
    Studies show that women’s brain are four years younger than men on average. This is taken from a sample from over 200 participants ranging from the age of 20 to 82, according to The Leonardo’s Luke Gangi Wellman. Women’s brain seems to be processing information more efficiently than men. The brain is constantly changing until it reaches the age of 25, then it starts to deteriorate and becomes less efficient.  What the test did was look at the oxygen and glucose consumption in the brain. Women brains tend to process these, and function more at ease. Do you agree with this study?

  • What the Medicaid expansion change actually means
    Utah State Legislature passed a bill in the House and Senate that changes the initiative for Medicaid expansion that was passed by the people. This is the second time Utah’s legislature passed a bill that made changes passed by the people. First with Prop 2, and now Prop 3. This questions the initiative process, and the roles Representatives should play. What do you do when your initiative gets changed? Do you agree with our initiative process?       JayMac News Show is usually hosted by KSL News Radio's Jay McFarland, who also hosts the fictional podcast, Hosts of Eden.

  • Let them eat cake first! It’s better for them (and you)
    This is a study I can definitely get on board with: Researchers found people who got dessert first tended to order healthier foods afterwards. So why do they keep putting them at the end of a menu?   Also, Apple fixes the Facetime bug and then goes one step further by rewarding the kid who found it.
