Show Notes for Thursday June 21, 2018


THIS WEEK'S DEAR JOHN LETTER!
(COMMENTS ARE WELCOME)

Dear John,

I've been listening for a while now and love the show. I almost didn't send this because it sounds a little conceited, which is not me at all, but I have had a guy at work ask me out three or four times over the last month. We don't work in the same department, so I don't really know him. I've been polite in saying I'm not interested, but last week I saw him hanging out in the parking lot by my car. I avoided going out for as long as I could, but I had plans with some friends so I finally had to go. He asked me again and was kind of rude when I told him I was really not looking for anyone in my life right now. He said “I'm talking about a drink... not asking you to marry me” Was I wrong to say it that way? Does he automatically “deserve” a date because he asked for one? How do I politely tell him to leave me alone. I'm a little concerned that he know which car is mine. I'm wondering what else he knows. What should I do?

A South Carolina man was arrested after a game of beer pong led to a
shooting early Saturday morning. Summerville police said the incident began after 23-year-old Timothy Gainey dared a woman to kiss him and expose her breasts during a beer pong game. It’s unclear if the unidentified woman went through with the dare. However, an unidentified 21-year-old man was reportedly seen consoling the woman when Gainey confronted him. The argument between Gainey and the man appeared to head outside the South Carolina home when Gainey reportedly pounded on his car window. The man tried to drive off, but a car attempted to block his exit. Shots were fired and a vehicle chase ensued. The unidentified man reportedly returned fire at the car chasing him before driving into a ditch. He reportedly fled the vehicle. Gainey was identified as one of the people in the other car that opened fire. He was charged with attempted murder. https://goo.gl/wv147z

If you think having your brain firing on all cylinders for 16- to 18-hours a day is a good thing, researchers say you’re wrong. Getting enough sleep and taking regular breaks from working your brain are important. A researcher at the University of Rochester (Maiken Nedergaard) wants to remind us that we “sleep to clean our brains.” The researchers found that during sleep the space between brain cells increased by 60% in mice. This allowed the cerebrospinal fluid in the animals’ brains to flow ten times faster than when awake.

The Knoxville City Council unanimously approved a measure to allow goat grazing on private property. Currently, a city ordinance doesn't allow livestock, like goats, on private property to curb brush and evasive plants like kudzu. However, it has been allowed on city property. We've seen goats clear up public parks, like Fort Dickerson and Ijams Nature Center. Now private property owners can apply for a permit to get goats, which can be beneficial to the environment. "Goats are very environmentally responsible, people think they're cute, people like them and they're effective in what they," said David Brace, Knoxville's deputy mayor. "They love to eat privet, kudzu, poison ivy." The ordinance change must be approved on a second reading, scheduled for June 19.http://www.wate.com/news/local-news/city-council-approves-goat-grazing-on-private-property/1221117972
