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.

The Manhattan Emergency Shelter

Community Bridge opens this week with Mandy Chapman Semple, Executive Director of the Manhattan Emergency Shelter, who discusses two new programs the Shelter is conducting that brings stability to households and prevents homelessness in our community.

Then immigration reform is on everyone's mind after the recent passage of SB 1070 in Arizona, but one of the bills being considered in Congress has its own downside. The Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act--the DREAM Act--is a bipartisan bill offering a road to citizenship for undocumented minors who attend college or join the military. But Kouross Esmaeli of Big Noise Films and Marco Amador of Producciones Cimarron and Center for Community Communications found out that more and more, what seems like an opportunity winds up pushing youth into military service--and not guaranteeing their reward on the other end in this clip from GRIT TV.
