Today:   We talk with Purdue University Northwest physics professor Neeti Parashar, who is on the team of 400 scientists looking into the origin of the universe -- and is a recipient of the 2019 High Energy and Particle Physics prize from the European Physical Society.  It involves what is called the "top quark."  Ivy Tech Community College K-12 initiatives director Caleb Westberg talks about a new collaboration between IVTC, River Forest Schools in Lake County and Praxair that will lead to more people qualified for top manufacturing jobs in the Region.  "Howey Politics Indiana" editor-publisher Brian Howey talks politics -- regional, state and national -- on the program today and North Township Trustee Frank J. Mrvan talks about the role of community health centers and how they help those who might not get the medical assistance they need.

Chris Nolte produces and hosts “Regionally Speaking” aired weekdays from noon to 1:00 p.m. He's also the temporary local "Morning Edition" host.
