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.

People's Grocery Coop at 35

Community Bridge opens this week with Scott Brelsford and Ben Champion from the People's Grocery Cooperative to discuss the coop, their new building, local food, and more.

Then Mike and Lisa Irvin join is in studio to discuss Teen Reach Adventure Camp - a program designed for foster children, that will be offered in the Manhattan area in July (girls' 9th-11th, boys' 30th-Aug.1st). Youth face a rough transition as they move from elementary school into high school, but even tougher are these years for adolescents who are in foster care and have experienced abuse, abandonment and neglect.  Teen Reach Adventure Camps provide these youth people with a chance to work as a team, trust each other and the counselors and understand their incredible value.

The first hour closes out this week's installation of "The Breakdown" with Chris Hayes.  This week's edition looks at "Don't ask; don't tell." President Obama has repeatedly promised to end the "Don't ask, don't tell" policy banning gays, lesbians and bisexuals from openly serving in the military. Last month, the House of Representatives took a concrete step towards fulfilling that promise by amending a major defense appropriations bill to include a DADT repeal. But there is a catch: the policy would only be repealed after a Pentagon study on the issue is released in December. On this week's edition of The Breakdown, DC Editor Christopher Hayes asks University of Pennsylvania Law School professor Tobias Wolff about the impact the Pentagon study will have on the repeal of DADT.
