Breathing Access 501c3 has been in operation since 2013 bringing yoga, wellness and arts programming to underserved schools in Winston Salem, NC.  We currently serve Petree and Cook Elementary – both schools are in low income household areas.  Our newest program is at Cook Elementary which had the highest illiteracy rate in NC for 6 consecutive years.  We want to help change that!"

Suzy McCalley of the Breathing Room yoga studio visits WSNC 90.5 FM Friday, January 12, 7:30 a.m. to talk with Jim Steele about starting the new year with your body on the right plane.

In a White House meeting with members of Congress this week, President Trump is said to have suggested that the United States accepts too many immigrants from "shithole countries" in Africa and too few from countries like Norway.

At the start of the new year, parents may encourage their teens to detox from social media, increase exercise, or begin a volunteer project. While kids may bristle at the thought of posting fewer selfies, surveys indicate 55 percent of adolescents enjoy volunteering. And according to a recent study, when it comes to helping others, teens may benefit psychologically from spending time helping strangers.

Russia, which backs Syrian President Bashar Assad, declared last month its mission accomplished and announced a partial pullout of its troops. Syrian state television now regularly broadcasts footage celebrating its military commanders as national heroes.

And investors from around the world speak in increasingly excited terms about that most lucrative phase of war: reconstruction.

A new year means it's time for new calendars. And a North Carolina man has created some of the most unusual you'll ever see.

In fact, they show scenes you once weren't supposed to see — official CIA paintings of past spy missions.

They include a depiction of a spy with a rifle shooting down an airplane from a helicopter, and images of two missions in which planes tried to snatch agents off the ground without landing.
