Give Newest “Battlefield Earth” Edition for Father’s Day

John GoodwinJohn Goodwin, the President of Galaxy Press and a regular guest on “Let’s Just Talk!” today, announces the exciting news and a great gift for Father’s Day. It is the newly released Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000 21st Century Edition, Battlefield Earth Saga of the Year 3000Available in your favorite format: BookAudiobookHardcover 1st EditioneBook, or Audible. The following is a review from the famous writer Douglas E. Richards (author of Unidentified). “L. Ron Hubbard was one of the big change agents of science fiction. He helped shift the genre from a cold exploration of machines, technology, and alien worlds to a warm exploration of human beings and how they reacted to such machines, technologies, and worlds. Battlefield Earth is a prime example, a character-driven epic that grabs you from the start and never lets go. You root for the heroes and despise the villains while becoming immersed in a compulsively readable science-fiction tour de force, complete with breathtaking action, non-stop adventure, and enough creativity to fill a dozen novels.” You can purchase it at Galaxy Press and Amazon.

USPS Service Manager of Employee Safety on Dog Bites

Leeann TheriaultOur third guest today is Leeann Theriault, the USPS Manager of Employee Safety & Health Awareness, who will give tips on preventing dog bites and offer help to educate the public on the dos and don’ts of responsible dog ownership so letter carriers can safely approach their residence or business. Most people would probably agree that having a dog charge at them and bite them is a frightening experience. While dogs are typically called ‘man’s best friend,’ folklore suggests that dogs and letter carriers have a love-hate relationship. The Postal Service reports that their letter carriers have fallen victim to dog bites more than 5,800 times in 2023 while trying to deliver the mail. Postal Workers and Dog BitesAggressive dog behavior seriously threatens USPS employees, ranging from nips and bites to vicious attacks. To emphasize the enormity of this issue, the Postal Service is reporting the number of dog attacks and bites together as the most prominent threat to carriers.

Leeann Theriault communicates and evaluates public health service efforts to improve employee awareness of safety and health programs on important safety topics nationwide, such as the National Dog Bite campaign. Partnering with communication and wellness functions ensures clear employee messaging to maximize communication channels and promote a strong occupational safety and health culture throughout the organization.
