This week's show features stories from China Radio International, Radio Deutsche-Welle, the Voice of Russia, and Radio Havana Cuba.
From CHINA- A poll by the Pew Research Center found that 65% of Americans think that US/China relations are good. Russia has told the US Agency for International Development to leave the country, accusing the agency of meddling in domestic affairs. A report on the anti-Japan protests spreading across China in response to the new Japanese claim on disputed island in the East China Sea.
From GERMANY- China has sent a thousand vessels to the area where the disputed islands remain uninhabited except for Japanese protestors. France closed 20 of its embassies out of fear of a potential reaction to a magazine publishing satirical cartoons of the prophet Mohammed. In South Africa, after workers at one mine accepted a wage increase, workers at other mines stepped up their strikes. Germany has created a new database of suspected neo-nazis and their associates. Italy's highest court has reinstated guilty verdicts against 23 CIA agents for the 2003 abduction of an Egyptian cleric in Milan. The Occupy Wall Street campaign returned on the first anniversary of the demonstrations. Arctic sea ice has shrunk to its smallest surface area since record keeping began. 2 Palestinians were killed in their car by the Israeli Air Force in the Gaza Strip. Iran has told the International Atomic Energy agency that it believes that sabotage caused the blast which shut down power at one of its nuclear facilities last month.
From RUSSIA- Evidence is mounting that the US government is creating more computer viruses to use in cyber-attacks against its presumed enemies. Spyware has also been installed in government computers in Iran and other countries in the Middle East.
From CUBA- Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu continues to push for military action against Iran, much as he did 20 years ago. Israeli occupation forces have begun war game maneuvers in the northern Golan Heights. Casualties among the Syrian rebel forces include mercenaries from Pakistan, Libya, Yemen, Afghanistan, Tunisia, and Somalia. Spanish Prime Minister Rajoy expressed worry over the huge separatist demonstrations taken place in Barcelona and the Catalonian region. Paraguayans took to the streets demonstrating against seeds and pesticides made by Monsanto.

There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line -

I was interviewed for an informative weekly radio show Mediageek, available at

All that plus times and frequencies for listening at home. It's free to rebroadcast, please notify me if you're airing it and haven't notified me in the last month, please mention the website if you only air a portion. If you just want to listen and have a slow connection, try the streaming version- lower sound quality but good enough and way easier if you don't have a high-speed internet connection. If streaming is a problem because of your slow connection, download the smaller file- it takes 20 minutes or less, and will play swell in any mp3 player application (RealPlayer, Winamp, Quicktime, iTunes, etc) you have on your computer.
NEW TIME SLOT on KZYX! This program will be aired on Sunday afternoon at 4pm (PDST) on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via < >

I hope you'll listen and air this if you're connected with a radio station. I am still wondering how to get financially compensated for the 25 hours I put into this program weekly- any ideas are appreciated. Any stations rebroadcasting this (or listeners) are welcome to donate for production costs. You can do so through the website. Many thanks to those that have donated! No Guilt! (maybe a little)
