Higher Education in the United States of America Under Attack, Segment 1

17 heures 50 minutes ago
There is 1.5 trillion dollars in outstanding student debt. It is not an accident. University professors and faculty are treated like industrial labor inputs. Administrators increase in numbers and payroll to the detriment of the universities ability to meet student needs but in sync with neoliberal and business management ideology. State governments are intentionally under-funding their universities, blaming deficits that they created by under taxing big corporations and the wealthy. Macek cites Nancy MacLean's book, Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right's Stealth Plan for America, and the multi-decade plotting of major corporations , the Koch brothers and like to take control of State houses in order to push through a backward, reactionary and sociopathic agenda. He lays out his thesis at the beginning and then offers some thoughts on fighting back through direct actions, as was seen in 2012 in Chicago and recently in West Virginia, Arizona and Oklahoma. Steve Macek , Professor in Communication and Media Studies at North Central College ,and a member of the Executive Committee of the Illinois American Association of University Professors (AAUP).

This Week In Palestine: Aida Touman-Sliman on Israel's new, Orwellian, "Nation-State" apartheid law, Segment 1

18 heures 28 minutes ago
Today we feature Aida Touman-Sliman, a Palestinian citizen of Israel and current member of the Knesset. To her enormous credit, Aida is a constant thorn in the flesh of the Israeli establishment. She focuses on the details of the recently-passed, Orwellian, "Nation-State" law, which officially establishes apartheid as the law in the entire “land of Israel” from river to sea. Also discussed: Trump's continuing weaponization of U.S. foreign aid, for example his cessation of $360 million annual contributions to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) for Palestine Refugees, depriving it of a third of its budget. This move follows an announcement the prior week that Washington had slashed $200 million from other aid programs for the Palestinians. About five million Palestinians, many languishing for decades in refugee camps across the Middle East, have relied on the agency for essential food, healthcare and education.

The Alembic Files: National Security and Individual Freedom, Segment 1

21 heures 9 minutes ago
This is a series based on a speech given at Harvard across April 27 and 28, 1955, by John Lord O’Brian, whose government service on behalf of the people is impressive, and one need only search his name to get a sense about the issues he felt most deeply. But no issue could have moved him more than the one to which he spoke at Harvard as part of the institution’s venerated Godkin Lectures on the Essentials of Free Government and the Duties Of the Citizen. Although it would have saddened him to find that his worst fears had been realized, O’Brian warned of the government’s misuse of terror or the threat of terror to induce its citizenry to relinquish its liberties for the specious promise of security. And here we are.

TUC Radio: Prof. Peter Wadhams: (TWO of TWO) Arctic Amplification, Climate Change, and Global Warming, Segment 2

1 jour ago
Fossil fuel emissions caused the melting of Arctic ice. Now the Arctic in turn is accelerating global warming instead of cooling the planet because the disappearance or thinning of the ice sheet in the Arctic summer has many serious consequences. This ice sheet covered the top of the world and touched the coast lines of Greenland, Canada, Alaska and Siberia for 100.000 years. In only 30 years the retreat from the coast lines during the Arctic summer accelerated and an ice free Arctic in September may occur by 2020. And the Arctic winter is no longer cold enough to restore ice levels. In this extraordinary comprehensive lecture that Prof. Wadhams gave in Milano, Italy, in May 2025, he lists seven major areas in which the Arctic influences climate change. In the previous program by TUC Radio Wadhams explained the consequences of the shrinking and thinning sea ice. In this program (Part TWO) Wadhams explains the melting of the Greenland ice sheet, the loss of snow, the multi-national study on the recent discovery of methane releases from permafrost and shallow water, the link between sea ice loss and extreme weather events, and the deflections of two great global air and water currents, the Jet stream and the thermohaline circulation. Prof. Peter Wadhams is the UK’s most experienced sea ice scientist and was Director of the Scott Polar Institute in Cambridge from 1987 to 1992 and Professor of Ocean Physics at Cambridge from 1992 to 2015. He has made more than 50 expeditions to both polar regions. His most recent book is A Farewell to Ice.

This Week In Palestine: Norman Finkelstein on professing sympathy for "both sides" (Israel and Gaza) , Segment 1

1 jour 1 heure ago
Today we feature Norman Finkelstein, political scientist, author, professor and activist, speaking on Gaza, where he has done an enormous amount of research and writing on the systematic Israeli massacre of the Gazan population. He also sharply criticizes the media and especially the major human rights organizations, which have been numbed and to some extent neutralized by the Israeli propaganda machine. Professor Finkelstein reviews the dismal history of these organizations' cowardice and timidity as regards Israel's continuing war crimes against Gaza. Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International bow to Isreal, avoiding terms like "war crimes" or "crimes against humanity." When expressing sympathy, it's for "both sides" even when the ratio of aggression is 1500 to 1, which is often. The crowning heartbreak was when Richard Goldstone mysteriously recanted his factually accurate, well documented, damning, report to the UN. Quoting Richard Falk: "You can't report truthfully on Israel without facing its wrath." (Ed. note: Finkelstein's focus was Gaza. It should be understood that those same shamefully corrupted human rights organizations have paired with Israel to aggressively promote U.S. "regime change" operations in Syria and elsewhere.)
