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.

Kansas Budget Woes: A Budget for 2011 for All Kansans

The Kansas Legislature return this week in what was supposed to be the Veto Session, but they still haven't come up with a budget for 2011 and the clock is ticking away. Joining us to discuss the issue are representatives from Kansans for Quality Communities: Kathy Cook, Executive Director of Kansas Families for Education; Mark Desetti, Kansas National Education Association; Tom Krebs, Kansas Association of School Boards; and Matt Fletcher, InterHab. We discuss what hasn't happen in the Kansas legislature regarding a budget, the false propaganda from the right, and what concerned citizens can do to encourage legislators to do the right thing.

Community Bridge closes out with Mike Herman, K-State professor and member of Kansas Citizens for Science, who discusses the science cafes KCS is hosting across the state.
