Sea Change Radio: The Last Straw: Mark Marinozzi + Romain Troublé, Segment 1

1 day 16 hours ago
The next time you sip on a drink from a straw, you may want to think twice because humans are producing an inordinate amount of plastic waste on straws alone. Plastic straws are one of the leading contributors to ocean trash, they take up to 200 years to decompose and they can’t be recycled. Every year, the US alone uses enough straws to fill up nine baseball stadiums. Plastic straws are pretty much the definition of wastefulness, they serve very little purpose and are terrible for the environment. This week on Sea Change Radio, we speak to two people who are doing their best to combat plastic waste in our oceans. First, Mark Marinozzi from World Centric gives us some important facts about plastic straws and talks about the best ways to fight the problem. Then, we hear from Romain Troublé whose organization, Tara Expedition, has been making scientific ocean voyages for the past fifteen years to monitor and collect data about ocean plastic waste.

TUC Radio: Paul Grignon: Money as Debt (TWO of TWO), Segment 2

1 day 17 hours ago
An independent movie on the question “Where does money come from?” became the most successful film on banking on the internet and was praised by notables like Catherine Austin Fitts, David Korten, Hazel Henderson, and Tom Greco. This update of TUC Radio’s 2009 Film on Radio version opens up concepts for groundbreaking bank reform and explains three astounding quotes by American presidents: “All of the perplexities, confusion, and distress in America arises, not from the defects of the Constitution or Confederation, not from want of honor or virtue, so much as from downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit, and circulation.” John Adams, Founding Father of the American Constitution “Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is absolute master of all industry and commerce … and when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate.” James A. Garfield, assassinated president of the United States “The Government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and credits needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government and the buying power of consumers. By the adoption of these principles, the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. The privilege of creating and issuing money is not only the supreme prerogative of government, but it is the government’s greatest creative opportunity.” Abraham Lincoln, assassinated president of the United States With over 2 million downloads between 2006 and 2009 and translated into 20 languages, the film has remained to this date one of the extraordinary teaching tools and inspiration for the monetary reform movement. This program is an update of TUC Radio's 2009 Film on Radio version.

Taylor Report: International Solidarity Blocks Israel's Removal of Bedouin Village, Segment 1

2 days 5 hours ago
Phil interviews Michaela Lavis, a student at Ryerson University who was arrested recently in a protest in the illegally occupied West Bank of Palestine where she stood in front of Israeli bulldozers intent on destroying a Bedouin village. As a result of the protest, the Israeli supreme court put a stay on the village's demolition. Lavis urges Canadians to lobby MPs on behalf of Palestine, and to urge the leader of the Canadian mission to Palestine, Douglas Proudfoot, to attend at the village to observe the Israeli violation of international law, as did the representatives of the European Union who funded the school in the village.

The Mind's Ear: "Bent Over Backwards", Segment 1

2 days 8 hours ago
The Mind's Ear Program #26: "Bent Over Backwards" On February 24th, 2018, Ernestus Jiminy Chald premiered an entire radio program aired in reverse entitled “About Face" on Free Radio Santa Cruz. Many listeners were perplexed by this, with some even sending in emails under the assumption that “About Face” was run backwards by mistake. This was, obviously, not the case, as the program was intended to be listened to backwards. After receiving so many questions about this program, Chald decided he would air it again, only this time he reversed the reversed program, so that listeners were given the chance to hear this backwards broadcast forwards for the first time ever. Thus "Bent Over Backwards" was born. Tune in to The Mind's Ear every Saturday night at 9 p.m. (PST) and every Sunday night at 7 p.m. (PST) on Free Radio Santa Cruz (101.3 FM).

This Week In Palestine: John Mearsheimer on the gradual weakening of the massive Israel Lobby ..., Segment 1

2 days 11 hours ago
Our feature presentation today is a speech given at the spring conference of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA) by Professor John Mearsheimer. It is an assessment of the gradually waning power of the massive Israeli Lobby today. Mearsheimer is author, with Stephen Walt, of The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy (Harvard, 2007). He is introduced by WRMEA's Janet McMahon. Go to criticalstudies.org/john-mearsheimer-what-has-changed-since-publication-of-the-israel-lobby-and-what-the-new-administration-can-do-differently/ for a full transcript of this April 2017 talk. Before this, we start with a brief report from The Real News Network: an interview with German Reporter Shir Hever, who has studied the use of Israeli weaponry along its so-called "border" with Gaza. "Dumdum" bullets, prohibited since World War I, fired at short range from special high-powered sniper guns, are suddenly OK for Israeli attacks on protesters within Gaza. Dumdum bullets explode as they enter the victim's body, tearing flesh and deliberately causing massive wounds. How dare they protest! So far, over a hundred protesters murdered in cold blood and thousands gravely injured.

This Week In Palestine: Khitam Edelbi, Palestinian Expressive Therapist, describes her work in the West Bank, Segment 1

2 days 17 hours ago
Today we hear we hear an exclusive presentation by Palestinian Expressive Therapist, Khitam Edelbi. Khitam is completing her PhD through Lesley University, while actively conducting an expressive therapy program she created in the West Bank of Palestine. While in Cambridge this summer doing her academic course work, Khitam spoke at a fund raiser, describing her program, and we were there to record it. It begins with an introduction by Susan Jacoby. As Khitam explains, her expressive therapy program is directed at the children in Palestine who are victimized on a daily basis by sadistic Israeli soldiers, checkpoints, house demolitions, and other forms of Israel's wall-to-wall racism, brutality, and dehumanization. Of course Khitam's expressive therapy program doesn't stop any of that. What it does do is give those children a sense of dignity, self-worth, and resilience. Indirectly, it could lead to an uprising strong enough to make Israelis accountable for their outrageous criminal behavior.

Taylor Report: Indian Troops Must be Withdrawn, Segment 1

2 days 18 hours ago
At the request of India and with the agreement of Pakistan, the UN Security Council was asked to propose a settlement over the disputed territory of Kashmir. The resulting formula agreed upon by the UNSC was for the removal of troops and a vote by the people of Kashmir on whether they wished to be part of India or Pakistan. The Indian government delayed and then reneged, leaving the region with "unfinished business". Today there is popular peaceful-but-determined resistance to Indian rule.
