Leaked: The Internet must go!

Hey! Are you on the internet right now? Of course you are! Then you should definitely check out this amazing video about what the internet companies are planning. This move could hurt both consumers and content creators--but of course would be a huge windfall for internet providers.

How weathly are Americans?

The disparity in wealth between the richest one percent of Americans and the bottom 80 percent has grown exponentially over the last thirty years — but the video, posted by user politizane and relying on data from a popular Mother Jones post, focuses on the difference between the ideal disparity that Americans would like to see and the reality.

Tax the Rich

So long! It's been fun.

Dear listeners,

In July 2011 I started a new job teaching Italian at Kansas State University. In some ways this was a return to my roots, as I taught English as a Foreign Language for 17 years in Italy. Now I am teaching English speakers Italian. I've come full circle.

This coming full circle also means the end of an attempt on my part to start a new career in my 50s. Sadly, as much as I tried to bring community radio to Manhattan, I was not successful. So I have decided to dedicate my energy and time to my first love, being an educator.

The archive of my shows will remain active - there's a lot of great content in the shows. So I hope you continue to listen and enjoy them.

Once again thank you for your support and encouragement over the five years the show was on the air. I know many feel that my program needs to be on the air and I agree with you that a diversity of voices is sorely lacking in the local media. But alas, it is not I who will bring that diversity. It will have to be someone else.

Sept. 3, 2009 - Movies, movies, movies

Community Bridge welcomes Kansas native Steve Balderson, a film director from Wamego. Some of his films include: "Pep Squad" (1996), "Firecracker" (2005), "Watch Out" (2005) as well as the documentary "Wamego: Making Movies Anywhere" which is the first part of a trilogy of award-winning documentaries. It can be viewed at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EouCltpsVo.
His new film "Stuck! Women. In Prison" is a homage to film noir women-in-prison films. It’s the story of Daisy, an innocent young woman framed for killing her mother. Condemned by the press and the public, Daisy is found guilty of murder and sentenced to die by hanging. The screen play was written by Frankie Krainz with contributions from Balderson and Jon Niccum. It is due out this fall. His film "Underbelly" will screen at the Tallgrass Film Festival on Saturday, October 24, 2009, at 7:30 PM.

Following this week's Media Minutes, we welcome Donna Schenck-Hamlin to discuss this year's Movies on the Grass program. Now in its fifth year, MOG offers campus and community new films that portray current issues in a relaxed setting, with music, entertainment, and raffles from local businesses.
