On Wednesday July 30th, the Palestinian Ministry of Health voiced outraged at a new massacre of civilians perpetrated during the so-called humanitarian ceasefire this afternoon.

Israeli forces said they would stop the bombing that has been constant for the last two days for three hours to allow people to buy food and supplies.

But when hundreds of people were out on the street at a market in eastern Gaza, U-S supplied F-16 aircraft fired missiles into the crowd, killing fifteen and wounding two hundred.

The bombing of the market followed an Israeli airstrike that hit a school in Jabalia early wednesday that also killed around fifteen people, and wounded dozens more.

Aviva Chomsky on her book, "Undocumented: How Immigration Became Illegal"

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Aviva Chomsky about her latest book, "Undocumented: How Immigration Became Illegal." Noted historian and activist Chomsky presents grounding historical and cultural context for a conversation often broken into sound bites, and her latest book has been praised as “a catalyst to let the deeper and higher thinking begin.”

Chomsky, a professor of Latin American Studies at Salem State University, argues that our immigration issues stem from the fundamental—and deeply prejudicial—way we classify who comes into this country, and who is not allowed.

Missing Microbes: How the Overuse of Antibiotics is Fueling our Modern Plagues

In Missing Microbes, Dr. Martin Blaser invites us into the wilds of the human microbiome where for hundreds of thousands of years bacterial and human cells have existed in a peaceful symbiosis that is responsible for the health and equilibrium of our body. Now, this invisible eden is being irrevocably damaged by some of our most revered medical advances—antibiotics—threatening the extinction of our irreplaceable microbes with terrible health consequences. Taking us into both the lab and deep into the fields where these troubling effects can be witnessed firsthand, Blaser not only provides cutting edge evidence for the adverse effects of antibiotics, he tells us what we can do to avoid even more catastrophic health problems in the future.

Madness Radio: Family Homes Carina Håkansson
What if ordinary families could provide care for people psychiatry has
given up on? Is there a way out for people stuck long-term as mental
patients? Can human relationships and living together be more
effective than medications, diagnosis, and hospitals? Carina
Hakansson’s values wouldn’t allow her to work in the traditional
psychiatric system in Sweden. She left to create the Family Care
Foundation, providing foster homes, therapy, and supervision for
people with psychosis and extreme emotional distress. What can we all
learn from this visionary — and simple — solution?
