In this episode, I’m going very specific and sharing my top recommendations for choosing the best bread for your baby! Believe it or not, I actually get asked this question A LOT!

Plus, have you been in the bakery aisle lately - there’s literally hundreds of choices! I’m not only sharing my expert recommendations on what breads I prefer for babies (I’ll share specific brands I love), but I’m also talking about what to look for in the ingredients in case you can’t find exactly the ones I recommend. AND I’m going to share how to safely serve bread to your baby. Hint-hint: you cannot serve fresh bread to a 6 month old!

A link to the website can be found in the show notes. And now, the music word of the day. Bruce: Before we get to our main subject of the day, Music of Ireland, let’s take a look at the music word of the day: Meter! Bill: Meter is Music can also be called time signature. Bruce: Ah yes a time signature..let me just grab my pen here and sign my name..I know you’ve always wanted my autograph Mr. Henry, with being super popular n stuff and... Bill: . No Mr. Fite, I’m not interested in your autograph or signature. Bruce: Oh whoops..sorry about that. Bill: I would be interested in Taylor Swift's autograph though... Bruce: Ok..yeah yeah yeah . Bill: Right, so anyway...I was saying TIME signature. The time signature or Meter is a collection of numbers found at the beginning of music. There are usually two numbers with one number on top and the other on the bottom. Bruce: Ah, just like a fraction! Bill: Well, it does kinda look like a fraction, only fractions have a line that separates the top and bottom number. The meter or time signature does not have that line. Bruce: Ok, got it, so there are two numbers that are stacked on top of each other. Bill: . Correct, the bottom number is usually 4, although it can be a different number which is always multiplied by the number 2. Bruce: Ok, so let me get my calculator out and yes...and hmmm...carry the one… and ok...so 4 times 2 = …….. 8! Bill: Correct, so the bottom number could be an 8 and other numbers like 16, 32, 64, 128, 256…. Bruce: Woah woah woah! 256? Bill: . Ok, maybe not 256. The most common numbers on the bottom are 4 and 8. Bruce: Cool. What about the top number? Bill: The top number can literally be any number on the planet. Bruce: Sweet, so like my favorite number? Bill: Sure Mr. Fite, yes your favorite number can be on the top of our time signature. Bruce: Wanna know what it is? Huh do ya? Wanna know...waaaaaannnna a know what my favorite number is? Bill: Oh boy! Yeah fine ok, what's your favorite number? Bruce: Two million, three hundred and forty six. Bill: Oh boy…… well ok I didn't see that coming...umm yeah sorry we probably would never see your favorite number as the top number in meter.. Bruce: Ah darn. Bill: Yeah typically we see number like 2, 3 and 4 on the top part of our time signature. We do also see 6, and 12 as well! Bruce: Cool! But not two million, three hundred and forty six. Bill: No Bruce: Right of course! Ok, so the top number could be 2 and the bottom number could be 4….. 2/4. Bill: You betcha. And lots of the time, music that is in 2/4 has a marching kinda style to it! Bruce: Sweet, what about 3 on top and 4 on the bottom? 3.4! Bill: Well sure! ¾ has a swaying kinda sound to it... like this….. It makes you want to sway back and forth as you listen. Bruce: And what about 4 on top and 4 on bottom? Bill: Well Mr. Fite 4/4 is the most popular meter of them all. Basically if you hear music you can bop your head back and forth to, as you listen, or dance to, it’s probably in 4/4. Lots of music we listen to is in the meter of 4/4. It's so common, that they even call it common time! Bruce: Pretty cool. So, these numbers have a big effect on how the music feels. Bill: That's a great way to put it Mr. Fite. Yes, if a person is writing music and they want to create a sound that makes people move or feel a certain way, they have to be careful with which meter they choose. Bruce: Right, just like you said, if a composer wants to write music for a marching band at a parade, they have the option to write the music in 2/4. Bill: Exactly. And that's the word of the day! TOGETHER: METER! Thank you so much for listening. We hope you are enjoying the show so far. Please subs…

Doc Apoc Has a Beef
This episode is the fifth in our series Imagine Equity: Six New Stories About Race, Identity, and Making Things Right. This episode starts to address the big topics of discrimination, injustice, and activism, so it might be a good idea for you to listen together with your child (or your grown-up). ** This week, a new restaurant called Big Bot Burger is coming to The Imagine Neighborhood™. Doc and Scotty are super excited to try it . . . until they find out that Big Bot won’t take Doc’s order. It turns out that Big Bot Burger has a company rule to not serve people from the Wasteland. ** Being a Wastelander is part of Doc’s identity—and not letting someone do something because of their identity is a super-wrong type of unfairness called discrimination. When rules discriminate against someone, or against a whole group of people, that’s called injustice. And those kinds of rules need to change. ** Doc and Scotty set out to make things right and get some justice. Doc uses her music and her voice to get people’s attention and start a peaceful protest. When the neighborhood learns that Big Bot discriminates against Wastelanders, they decide to leave and patronize Justice Burgers instead. But that doesn’t put an end to the injustice. Big Bot has locations everywhere, and it’s up to our heroes to stop them! ** To be continued next week! ** This week, Doctor Apocalypso used her voice and her music to speak up against injustice. There's a long history of musicians who have used songs to talk about injustices they see in the world—just like Doc. We've put together a list of some of those songs. Grown-ups, you could choose a few songs that would work for your family to listen to together, and then talk about the injustices those musicians wrote about. ** If you want even more of The Imagine Neighborhood, sign up for our newsletter. Each week, you’ll get additional discussion questions and activity ideas for kids and grown-ups. Keep sharing your ideas, drawings, and creations with us—we love seeing what you come up with, and you might see it featured on our Infinite Refrigerator! ** This show is supported by a generous grant from The Allstate Foundation. The Allstate Foundation works to empower youth to reach their full potential and build the just, equitable, and healthy world we all deserve. To learn more, visit AllstateFoundation.org.

33. Speaking UP about Mental Health Funding - Panel Discussions
This panel discussion with the EPIC Network (Expert Psychologists Interagency Clinical Network) focuses on why four agencies decided to come together in order to lobby the government to make changes to the mental health model as we currently experience it in Alberta. EPICS Mission The Expert Psychologists Interagency Clinical Network (EPIC) agencies include Kells Counselling, Insight Psychological, Dreamcatcher Nature Assisted Therapy, and Cornerstone Counselling. EPIC is a grassroots group representing over 60 private psychologists in Alberta. Together they strive to promote the benefits of psychology in the Edmonton area and help all Albertans access psychological care. In 2019 EPIC started a petition and submitted stating that changes needed to be made to the publics’ ability to access mental health.  The petition asks the Alberta Government to: 1. Fully fund mental health care interventions with a psychologist. 2. Allow psychologists to direct bill AHS for psychological services.
