The Link Online (#30) Sat, Jan 19, 2013
(CBC)
In this week's edition of the show, we hear about a couple of health related stories, one of which concerns the idea of lonliness, especially among seniors, and how one service agency is helping to combat that, and another topic looks at something many people do without realizing the consequences.  That involves giving their children homeopathic treatments or natural medicinal products without advising their doctors who may also prescribe pharmceutical drugs. The potential for drug interaction could result in serious medical consequences.

We also hear surprising news that many university students don't seem to know much about geography and can't place counntries properly on a map.. actually in some cases, university students can't place continents and oceans properly on a map.

Then, the devastated country of Haiti is still rebuilding after the initial massively destructive earthquake of three years ago, and hurricanes since then.  A Canadian travel company has teamed up with Tourism Haiti to develop new travel plans to entice tourists and their money to once again select Haiti as a travel destination.. The idea is to get tourists away from the resorts and experience more of Haitian culture and its people.

Thats on today's edition of the Link Online, show #30.
