National Parks Restoration (0:00:00) Our beautiful national parks are visited by thousands of people every year. With all the people and the natural wear and tear of time, these places are in need of some restoration. The Pew Charitable Trusts is working on this project and are seeking long-term solutions. We love national parks here at The Lisa Show, so we wanted to learn a little bit more about these efforts. To do that, we invited Marcia Argust, the Project Director of Pew’s efforts to restore America’s national parks, onto the show today to discuss this. Fulfilling Your Life's Mission (0:15:14) Those who have experienced mental illness know how debilitating it can feel and despondent life can seem. Despite the many resources to help, finding purpose and meaning in your life, while passing through those moments, can be extremely difficult and sometimes seemingly impossible. For those who have not experienced mental illness, understanding those with it can also be a great challenge. Well today, we are very excited to hear from Drew Young, the author of The Meaning of Your Mission, which tells his story of overcoming the opposition that accompanies mental illness to find his purpose in life. The Language of Being Human (0:33:18) If we started doing our show in another language, I’m guessing some of you might not be completely on board with that. If I started speaking French, Spanish, or Russian, you just might have a hard time enjoying the show as usual. The good news is we don’t want to do that and make you feel left out. When we want to make a connection with someone, we use the language they know, but does that mean we can never connect with someone that doesn’t speak English? To help us learn about the universal languages humans’ share is Poet Ali. He’s an expert in communication, author, and poet. Pool Safety (0:52:47) I don’t know about you, but now that it’s summer I’ve been dying to go swimming. Some public pools and water parks are planning to reopen or have already opened their gates. But I think many of us are still hesitant to go. So, is it safe to go to these places, and if not, where can we enjoy a good swim during these hot summer months? Here to tell us what swimming will look like this summer and how we can stay safe is Nikki Fleming from Pool Safely. Mini Book Club: Socially Conscious Books (1:07:03) Rachel Wadham, of BYU Radio’s Worlds Awaiting, talks with Lisa and Richie about the best books to read to get informed about current social issues. Coronavirus Scams (1:20:13) As the coronavirus pandemic continues, scammers are using confusion as an opportunity to steal money and personal information. Since the beginning of the year, the FTC has received more than 7,800 coronavirus-related reports from consumers, double what they were about a week ago.Knowing how to protect ourselves from being scammed will help relieve us from unnecessary stress during these uncertain times.Here to tell us what we should keep alook out for is Kathy Stokes. Kathy is the director of Fraud Prevention Programs at AARP. Communicating with Your Stylist (1:26:50) Occasionally –women especially can relate to this –we go to our hair stylist to change up our look when we’re going through a transitional phase, a crisis, or when we’re bored with our hair. Sometimes, the change we’re looking for can be risky and difficult to explain. But communication is key to any successful relationship, and that includes our relationship with our hairstylist. So how do we explain the perfect look we imagine in our heads? To help us out, we’ve invited friend of the show and instructor for L’orealProfessionnelMichelle Lindsay to tell us how we can better communicate with our stylist what we want in order to avoid a haircut fiasco and feel confident in our new look.
