HAPPY NEW YOU?
It seems to happen each year as we open those new calendars - everyone talking about resolutions, making changes and having a happy and more organized lifestyle. How do you get there? On today's HearSay, we'll talk with Jonathan Haidt, author of The Happiness Hypothesis. Haidt, professor of psychology at the University of Virginia, shares his thoughts on what happiness means and how you can find it. And author Mary Carlomagno's answer to making life more pleasant is to just Give It Up. She'll recount her personal journey to a simpler life and how it can lead to true contentment.

HOMELAND SECURITY GRANTS IN HAMPTON ROADS For the fourth year in a row, the Department of Homeland Security passed over Hampton Roads for the Urban Area Security Initiative grants in favor of communities such as Memphis, Tennessee and Santa Ana, California. Hampton Roads, with its ports, infrastructure and military institutions, should have been high on that list for grant money, say critics. Today on HearSay, Cathy talks with Joe Bouchard, Executive Director of Center for Homeland Security and Defense at Zel Technologies, and Ed Merkle, Director of Security at the Virginia Port Authority, about the grant decisions and Hampton Roads’ security needs.
