A "Work in Progress" conversation between retired farmer Frank Baffi, and Dave Komasara, an aspiring farmer.
“Work in Progress” is a new Stateside series about what it's like to be at opposite ends of the same career path. You'll hear conversations between two people —one who's just starting out in a job and one who's been working in the field for a long time.
Throughout the series we’ll feature conversations between people who have chosen a variety of career paths ranging from conductors, to priests, nurses, and millwrights.
Stateside’s conversations with Richard Conforti, supervisor for the management and tracking unit at the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality; Noah Hall, professor of law at Wayne State University and founder of the Great Lakes Environmental Law Center; and John Truscott, spokesperson for US Ecology.
US Ecology, an Idaho-based company, is close to receiving approval for a large expansion of its hazardous waste facility on Detroit’s east side, near Hamtramck.
The expansion would increase the facility’s storage capacity nine-fold, from 76,000 to 677,000 gallons.
Tensions boiled over last night at a public hearing hosted by the Detroit Board of Water Commissioners. The hearing was held to address controversial drainage fees that will be applied to all residential properties by July 1st.
Stateside’s conversation with Ted Genoways, author of "This Blessed Earth: A Year in the Life of an American Family Farm."
As President Trump and Chinese leaders swap threats of trade tariffs, we've heard a lot of talk about what a 25 percent Chinese tariff might mean to soybean farmers in the U.S. and specifically in Michigan, one of the top soybean-producing states.
When it comes to a company’s bottom line, diversity matters. Over the last couple of years on The Next Idea, we've talked with our partner Jeff DeGraff and others about the importance of diversity — in all its forms — when it comes to finding true innovations that change lives and grow businesses.
Today's guests on The Next Idea show this emphasis on diversity isn't just because it's politically correct, or some kumbaya message that we should all get along.
