HOUR ONE

 

Sam had a very eerie experience yesterday that made her a little worrisome heading to work this morning, she explains what happened.

It’s been over a decade since American psychologists Leaf Van Boven and Thomas Gilovich concluded that doing things makes people happier than having things. A new paper, this one also co-authored by Thomas Gilovich, hones in on another difference between experiential and material purchases: how people feel before they make these purchases. Many people now recognize that spending money on, say, a plane ticket for a vacation is more satisfying in the long run than purchasing a new television for the same price. What was the best experience you spent money on?

On the heels of their conference unveiling the new iPhone 6, iPhone 6 PLUS and the AppleWatch, Apple has now announced they are sending the click wheel the way of the dodo and are discontinuing the original iPod. Already taken off the website, if you always put off picking up a new iPod you may be out of luck soon.

Today is the 13th Anniversary of the terror attacks that claimed the Twin Towers in New York. Memorials will take place all over the US today, and for the first time since 9-11 at Ground Zero there is one tower is standing at 1700 ft. This is also the first anniversary the Ground Zero museum will be open as well.

The NFL is now being asked to answer who knew what and when, when it comes to who saw the horrible video of Ray Rice attacking his then fiancée in an elevator. TMZ as well as a rep from the Casino the incident happened in are both saying an NFL rep did have the video sent to them, but the NFL is sticking to their guns saying they only found out the day before the news broke.

We take your texts on the best experience you spent money on.

Gormley joins to share his thoughts on experiences vs things and what is coming up on his show.

A piece in the Washington Post calling for Condaleezza Rice to step in and save the NFL and it's something at one time she wanted to do. Condoleezza Rice made a startling admission to the New York Times in 2002. This was no joke. Rice was serious, but she wanted it to be known that she wouldn’t want to do it before the commissioner of the time stepped down.

HOUR THREE

We go over your texts to 306-306 on Experiences VS Things.

There was swift justice in South Africa w Oscar Pistorious being found not guilty of murder.

The NFL is now being asked to answer who knew what and when, when it comes to who saw the horrible video of Ray Rice attacking his then fiancée in an elevator.

HOUR ONE

 

Woodsy joined the John Gormley Live show yesterday to inform Rider Nation that Darian Durant will not be returning for the rest of the regular season and is scheduled for surgery later this week. Tino Sunseri is now the starting quarterback charged with leading the riders into the playoffs and probably beyond and Brendan Taman has faith he can do that. Now that Doubles is out, who on the Riders has to step up the most?

The Riders are currently sitting one quarterback short and are hoping that Keith Price, a former player for the University of Washington will fit the bill. Price arrived in Regina last night. What do we expect from Keith Price on Day One? Taman has not ruled out the chance of a more veteran experience in the slot, but is hoping Sunseri and Price will get the job done.

Asking for your feedback this morning on what do you expect from Keith Price on Day One? And who on the team will need to step up the most now that Doubles is out?

Many believe Apple has its mo-jo back. Apple has unveiled their smartwatch -- a wearable device that marks the company's first major entry in a new product category since the iPad's debut in 2010. It'll be called the Apple Watch. Apple also finally unveiled the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus which included a bigger screen and the previous iPhone 5.

Since the horrible tape surfaced Monday of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice beating his then-fiancee, there's been a torrent of criticism that the National Football League had been insensitive to the whole issue of domestic violence. Rice was fired by the Ravens and suspended indefinitely, but not permanently, by the league. But questions have been building about how much the league knew and when officials knew it. Late Tuesday, Commissioner Roger Goodell gave his first interview.

Himpe has a little bit of shiny-new-thing fever this morning after Apple unveiled the new iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and their new Apple Watch -- a wearable device that marks the company's first major entry in a new product category since the iPad's debut in 2010.

In the wake of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice's suspension from the NFL, EA Sports has confirmed that it will remove the embattled pro football player from Madden NFL 15 this week. Rice was released by the Ravens and suspended indefinitely yesterday after TMZ posted a video of Rice punching his then-fiancée and current wife, Janay Rice, in an elevator of a New Jersey casino. Since then trending all around social media are two hashtags: #WhyIStayed and #WhyILeft to help bring light to domestic violence and why Janay Palmer married Rice.

The NFL has vigorously claimed that the league office did not see the surveillance footage of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice knocking out his then-fiancée Janay Palmer before settling on a two-week suspension as just punishment for what was, then as now, an undisputed act of appalling violence. Charles Latibeaudiere of TMZ says that's a bunch of bull.

13 days after American James Foley was beheaded by terror group Isis, another video has surfaced. And the way this is all unfolding, it's sounding a little bit too much like the plot of a TV show or movie. And this sequel even promised a third installment by introducing a third Western captive at the end. The executioner directly addresses the camera - repeatedly pointing a knife at it - and the message is recorded from multiple angles and edited. These were filmed this way on purpose. There's some production value -- it's not good production value, but it's done intentionally. It is the epitome of terrorism as theatre -- backed up by a number of psychologist and professors studying terrorism and security.
