Curtis Bisbee

Web Design/Content Production

Curtis is the Web Design/Content Production person for Tri States Public Radio. Curtis Maintains and updates the website for TSPR, produces content for online and on-air use, including elements for pledge drives, online campaigns and daily voicing duties weekdays from 5:00pm- 5:00am and both Saturday and Sunday. Curtis was born in California, and spent his younger years out west. He later bounced around the midwest until he was in 8th grade, when he and his mother settled in Belvidere, IL. Curtis attended Belvidere High School, graduated in 1996. Then attended WIU where he started off as a law enforcement major, before finally figuring out that radio was where he wanted to be. As a child he would record songs off of the radio and put together his own little one man radio programs that only his mother and a few others would ever hear. Following a visit to a radio studio in Rockford, IL when he was in 5th grade the seed of radio was firmly planted in his mind, though when he first attended college he was wary of pursuing a career in radio until he landed a late night spot on 88.3 The Dog his junior year. Following that experience he decided to switch majors and began to pursue his long held dream to hear himself on the radio on a daily basis. In Curtis’s down time he enjoys drawing and painting, spending time with his wife Marjorie and his two sons Aiden and Cole, playing guitar, caring for his African Cichlid tank and helping his eldest son care for his fish and reptile terrarium.

Temporary Tattoos Could Shape the Future

Lead in text: 
A research team is developing wireless flexible electronics one can apply on the forehead just like temporary tattoos to read brain activity.
Temporary electronic tattoos could soon help people fly drones with only thought and talk seemingly telepathically without speech over smartphones, researchers say. Electrical engineer Todd Coleman at the University of California at San Diego is devising noninvasive means of controlling machines via the mind, techniques virtually everyone might be able to use.

New Study Reveals Domestic Cats as Prolific Hunters

Lead in text: 
It is estimated that domestic cats in the United States- both the pets that spend part of the day outdoors and the strays and ferals that never leave it- kill a median of 2.4bil birds and 12.3bil mammals a year.
For all the adorable images of cats that play the piano, flush the toilet, mew melodiously and find their way back home over hundreds of miles, scientists have identified a shocking new truth: cats are far deadlier than anyone realized.

Are Brazilian Waxes Making Crab Lice an Endangered Species?

Lead in text: 
A recently discovered trend suggests an alternative way of stemming one of the globe’s most contagious sexually transmitted infections. Pubic lice are usually treated with topical insecticides, while they aren’t known to spread disease, itchy skin reactions and subsequent infections make the lice a hazardous pest.
Pubic lice, the crab-shaped insects that have dwelled in human groins since the beginning of history, are disappearing. Doctors say bikini waxing may be the reason. Waning infestations of the bloodsuckers have been linked by doctors to pubic depilation, especially a technique popularized in the 1990s by a Manhattan salon run by seven Brazilian sisters.

Possible breakthrough is announced in search for AIDS cure.

Lead in text: 
According to a researcher David Harrich scientists have discovered how to modify a protein in HIV so that, instead of replicating, it protects against the infection. The modified protein cannot cure HIV but it has protected human cells from AIDS in the laboratory.
Researchers at Queensland Institute of Medical Research have claimed of making a breakthrough that could lead to a potential cure for AIDS.
