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.

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.

Oct. 28 Dr. Vandana Shiva/Pt 2 - "It's Up to Us Alone"

Community Bridge opens with an edited version (30 min) of Dr. Vandana Shiva's lecture "Soil, Not Oil: Food Security in an Age of Climate Change" given on Oct 16th at K-State. Dr. Vandana Shiva is internationally recognized as an environmental activist, ecofeminist, and champion of sustainable and organic agriculture, biodiversity, and economic justice. The complete version of the speech (62 minutes) is available on the Community Bridge website as a podcast. It is located under the "Fall 2009 Podcasts" in the right hand column of the webpage.

Following this week's Media Minutes, we air the second half of "It's Up to Us Alone" - a two-act radio drama set in the echoes of recent Palestinian rocket attacks and Israeli military incursions, which had its worldwide broadcast debut on Friday, Oct. 16 on KPFK 90.7 FM in Los Angeles. Starring Ed Asner as Ari Shalom, the radio play features a full cast of actors taking on a script that looks at both the broader, international implications of war as well as the personal costs of conflict. The play's objective is to stimulate discussion on the Middle East and war in general by rolling ahead, based on the projected continued escalation of the conflict, to a point where militarism brings the entire world to the brink of destruction - to the point that the people on BOTH sides lose.
