Radio Curious: Pio Pico & Roberto Garza – Meet the Last Mexican Governor of California, Segment 1

2 meses 1 semana ago
In this program, we are going to go back into California history about 150 years, and visit with the last Mexican governor of California, Pio Pico. Pio Pico was born at the San Gabriel Mission in 1801, of Spanish, Italian, Indian and African ancestry. Both as a politician and as an entrepreneur, he espoused the views of many native-born Californarios over distant seats of government. As the last Mexican governor of California, he presided over the secularization of the missions, and turned over their vast land holdings to private hands. Although he fled California during the American takeover, Pio Pico returned to build the first major hotel in Los Angeles. Later, he served on the Los Angeles City Council. I met with Pio Pico in the person of Roberto Garza in February of 1998. Pio Pico recommends “Pio Pico, A Historical Narrative,” by Pio Pico. Roberto Graza recommends “Pio Pico Miscellany,” by Martin Cole & “Decline of the Californios,” by Leonard Pitt. Originally Broadcast: February 27, 1998

Taylor Report: Trump and Biden promoting division and havoc, Segment 1

2 meses 2 semanas ago
The World Health Organization is under attack by the United States because the US is losing its control over the world. Canada should not be associated with these attacks. We should instead be promoting mutual respect, peace, and cooperation between major states. On China, Biden is as bad as Trump. In Canada, the media has been baiting China, showing that we are a vassal state following the Americans.

Sea Change Radio: Marie Mutskui Mockett: American Harvest, Segment 1

2 meses 2 semanas ago
Anyone who has gone to the grocery store during the COVID-19 health crisis must have wondered to themselves at some point why there was no toilet paper, milk or flour all of a sudden. It’s an important reminder that most of us have very little idea how things go from being planted in the ground to being stocked on our shelves. On this week’s Sea Change Radio, we speak with Marie Mutsuki Mockett, an author whose family owns a wheat farm in Nebraska. Her new book, “American Harvest,” takes us inside the world of wheat harvesting. We get a glimpse into the lives of the farmers she met while researching her book, discuss how those in the industry are coping with the pandemic and take a closer look at some of the agricultural industry's practices.

TUC Radio: David Quammen: Is the Coronavirus the Byproduct of Human Behavior?, Segment 2

2 meses 2 semanas ago
In his seventh week of sheltering in place in Milano, Italy, the filmmaker Olmo Parenti called the science writer and explorer David Quammen. He was sheltering in his home in Bozeman, Montana. Olmo had read Quammen’s 2012 book: Animal Infections and the Next Human Pandemic; and asked Quammen how he was able to predict 8 years ago the rise of the Coronavirus pandemic. Olmo Parenti is a member of “A THING BY” a collective of young filmmakers based in Milan. David Quammen has won many awards for his books and magazine articles, including from the National Association of Science Writers. His work with National Geographic is best known, and has taken him on many difficult treks through the wild, such as chronicling J. Michael Fay’s 2,000 mile survey hike through the forests of Central Africa, The Megatransect. In the course of his travels and studies David Quammen has come in contact with emerging diseases — such as Ebola, SARS, bird flu, and AIDS — and with the wildlife they emerge from. Spillover, the rite of his book, is a scientific term, it is the moment when such a virus passes from wild animals into people.

Press Conference/Action - Chicago Stroger Hospital Nurses Expose Crisis, Segment 1

2 meses 2 semanas ago
Press conference/action in front of Cook County Stroger Hospital which is dealing with the second highest number of Covid -19 infections in the nation. Approximately a dozen National Nurses United nurses were masked and social distancing on scene, displaying a banner with pictures of home made protective gear; speakers explain. They were joined by two transit union workers who daily bring patients to and from the hospital, exposing themselves, families and riders to potential COVID-19 exposure due to hospital management's failure to follow CDC testing policy and provision of level appropriate protective equipment. A nurse states management tried to bully her into using sub standard protective gear that the doctors refuse to wear.

Latin Waves : David Bacon, Current Immigration under Trump, Segment 1

2 meses 2 semanas ago

He has written several books and numerous articles on the subject. His most recent book is In the Fields of the North / En los campos del norte: , David Bacon documents the experiences of some of the hardest-working and most disenfranchised laborers in the country: the farm workers who are responsible for making California Americas breadbasket. Combining haunting photographs with the voices of migrant farm workers. Host Sylvia Richardson speaks to David about how US foreign policies combined with regressive trade agreements have been responsible for displacing millions of people from countries like El Salvador, Haiti and Mexico, and how Trump is adding insult to injury by repealing the TPS Status (Temporary Protected Status) from people who have been living and contributing to American society for many decades. And how as citizens we must stand together and protect those most vulnerable despite who the president is.
