1968 & 2018: Unite Against War and Police Violence!, Segment 1

3 months 2 weeks ago
The Chicago Committee Against War and Racism held a rally and march, Saturday, August 25th, under the theme: “1968 & 2018: Unite Against War and Police Violence!” The rally was intended to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the watershed anti-war protests at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, while not being an exercise in nostalgia but the building of a new independent people’s movement against the U.S. government’s constant war-making and the related struggles against racism, poverty and police repression. The march from Daley Plaza to the General Logan Statue, site of iconic confrontations during the police riots and across from the Hilton Hotel were the delegates and press were staying, was addressed by Rich Whitney. That portion has no audio recording. Ahead of the event several people who experienced the "68 DNC" gave short remembrances.

TUC Radio: Crazy Weather and the Arctic Meltdown, How are they Connected?, Segment 2

3 months 2 weeks ago
Each year in the last three decades scientists have paid attention to the status of the ice at the end of the Arctic summer. In past years observations from satellites and submarines have shown decreasing ice thickness and area covered for the months from June to September. That has led to an ongoing debate whether and when the Arctic might be ice free in September. But scientist are not the only interested parties. There is growing evidence of the connection between Arctic melting and weather events in the Northern Hemisphere, droughts, colds, heat-waves as well as flooding. Dr. Jennifer Francis is Research Professor at Rutgers' University Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences. Her interests are the Connections between rapid Arctic warming and weather patterns in mid-latitudes, and impacts of Arctic sea-ice loss on accelerated melt of the Greenland ice sheet. She also has direct personal experience with climate and weather as she and her husband circumnavigated the world in a sailboat between 1980 and 1985. Jennifer Francis spoke at the New England Aquarium on October 19, 2017.

The Alembic Files: Your Life is Their Toy - Part 4, Segment 1

3 months 2 weeks ago
Health and life are man's most precious possessions; and anxiety to preserve them is natural. It is not surprising, therefore, that they have been exploited since time immemorial. Every age has had its charlatans, quacks and medicine men. Much in the same measure as social organization has attained its highest pitch in the present era, the exploitation of health and life today has reached its zenith. Never before in history has there arisen such an extensive conspiracy about the problem of public health of entire nations, involving well-organized, opposing political and commercial groups. The consequence of this welter of exploitation is the sacrifice of human comfort, happiness, health and life. --Emanuel Josephson, 1941, "Your Life is Their Toy."

Sea Change Radio: Craig Downs: Coral Reef Rescue, Segment 1

3 months 2 weeks ago
Visitors to the Hawaiian island of Oahu marvel at the splendor of Hanauma Bay, a volcanic crater teeming with coral reefs, tropical fish, and the occasional sea turtle. But there's something else that the snorkelers may notice as they enjoy the bright colors of a local rainbow-hued parrot fish. Upon the surface of the water floats a colorful oily film, deposited there from the bodies of the 3000 visitors who descend upon the state park everyday. That works out to approximately a million swimmers per year. If each of those people applies a half-ounce to an ounce of sunscreen before mingling with the marine life there, that’s literally hundreds of gallons of sunscreen a day being poured into the small bay. One imagines that all those chemicals must have an impact on the health of that fragile ecosystem. Well, our guest today on Sea Change Radio, Craig Downs, is the Executive Director of Haereticus Environmental Laboratory. His organization's research established just how detrimental common sunscreen ingredients are to coral reefs and the findings helped lead to a recent ban on these ingredients across the entire state of Hawaii. We talk today about what the offending chemicals do, the particulars of the new legislation, and whether we can expect other jurisdictions to follow suit.

Our guest in this edition of Radio Curious is Anthony Adams, Esq., is currently, among other things, a Deputy Public Defender in Mendocino County, California. He’s also poet, formerly a California State Parole Commissioner, and served in the California State Assembly. At a local Bar Association gathering, Adams recited his poetry and shared stories about his work as a Parole Commissioner. I decided to invite him to be a guest and asked him to tell us about his life. Anthony Adams visited Radio Curious on August 23, 2018, and described himself and an “interesting fellow… A deeply romantic person.” In the course of our conversation his self description revealed itself. We began when I asked him about poetry related to his work. The books Anthony Adams recommends are “Nine Horses: Poems,” by Billy Collins, a former national Poet Laureate; “The Dove Keepers,” by Alice Hoffman; and “1492: A Novel of Christopher Columbus, the Spanish Inquisition, and a World at the Turning Point,” by Newton Frohlich.

Taylor Report: Labour Needs a Greater Vision, Segment 1

3 months 2 weeks ago
One of Canada's most able and well-known labour leaders, Sid Ryan, urges more action in support of locked out workers at the Canadian Exhibition. He calls for rallies at Queen's Park, and suggests that it is time to join the rest of organized labour around the world by celebrating Labour Day on May the 1st. Ryan provides a vivid account of how the CLC and OFL have lost the plot, and must correct their ways. Doing so entails the end of coddling UNIFOR, which has taken up raiding as a habit.
