May 26, 2015: UNLV’s Project FOCUS

This week, host Gary Larson and regular contributors David Damore, Elizabeth Thompson, and Conor Shine discuss the strange route that Uber and other ride-sharing companies had to take in order to become legalized in Nevada. The panel also debates what we can reasonably expect to pass (and die) in the frenzied last days of this year’s legislative session.

A new program at UNLV aims to increase the opportunities available to these students by offering them the chance to pursue higher education. In this segment, host Gary Larson sits down with Joshua Baker. Josh is the director of UNLV’s FOUCS project which aims to increase inclusive, accessible, and productive career and educational options for college-aged students with intellectual disabilities.
