I always find end of year lists to be fun, and I find it useful to focus my listening options down to something manageable. This year on the show I've played new music from over 200 albums, and one of the records on this year's list is one I've not yet played, which is to say I come across an enormous amount of music over a year's time. I'm not unique in this; surely as more listeners utilize streaming services the volume of their listening is massive as well.

How common is the common cold?According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in the course of a year, people in the U.S. suffer 1 billion colds. But, when you’re coughing, sneezing, and miserable do you need a doctor?

Sometimes people are unsure if they have the flu, bronchitis, pneumonia...or just the common cold. To avoid an unnecessary trip to your healthcare provider and to prevent the overprescription of antibiotics, it helps to understand the difference between these illnesses.

City of Perryville

The City of Perryville is known for its economic health, especially considering their rural location. Generally full employment is considered to be around 5%, and the unemployment rate there is around 3%. Many companies are headquartered in the city, and many people work there. But there aren’t a lot of places for them to live within city limits, especially homes that would work for a single family. During the day, the population increases by around 40 percent, which indicates that people are probably making a hefty commute to get to work.
