Ani and Lyn talk with Micheal Meade about his upcoming event Voices of Veterans a Bridge Back Home

Mosaic Voices will be bringing Michael Meade and returning veterans to the First Unitarian Church in Portland on Saturday June 30th for a presentation entitled Voices of Veterans: A Bridge Back Home

This Welcome Home Ceremony brings together veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, veterans of other wars, and the local community. It intends to help heal the distance between the warriors and those they protect and to bridge the gaps between war and peace, trauma and renewal, pain and understanding. Such a welcoming involves a courageous community conversation that moves beyond politics and goes deeper than the rhetoric of war. It begins with tragedy and loss — the aftermath of any war — and requires the language of poetry and story, as well as the dignity of ceremony.

Celebrating the Summer Solstice with mini-tarot and astrology readings.

Ani and Lyn discuss the significance of the Summer Solstice.  As a treat for listeners, they give short tarot & astrology consultations on the air.  

Recognizing the quarter and cross-quarter holidays in the neo-Celtic year (northern hemisphere) is one way to connect with the rhythms of the earth, and to connect with the changes that each season brings.  The Summer Solstice is a time of outwardly focused exuberance.  It is a good time to take action, and to gather family and friends together in a celebration of interconnectivity. This is the time to enact our dreams; a time to bring our visions forth into the world of the tangible.

Positively Revolting on 06-01-12 Self-compassion with Dr. Kristin Neff

program date: 
Fri, 06/01/2012

Lyn and guest host Theresa Mitchell speak with Dr. Kristin Neff about self-compassion

The relentless search for high self-esteem has become a virtual religion; and a tyrannical one at that. Our competitive culture tells us we need to be special and above average to feel good about ourselves, but we can’t all be above average at the same time. There is always someone richer, more attractive, or successful than we are. And even when we do manage to feel self-esteem for one golden moment, we can’t hold on to it. Dr. Kristin Neff, an Associate Professor in Human Development and Culture at the University of Texas at Austin says self-compassion is an antidote to the web of deception surrounding the mythos of "self esteem".

this morning's program: host & speaker

I am a daily KBOO listener; however, while todays speaker while speaking from the heart regarding her dismay over the Afganistan theater of war, she makes vague statements, with great emotion, but few references to facts, which could easily be woven into her statements to make them more illuminating, it would give more power to her rally cries. Tt feels as though I am simply listening to hyperbole LIKE ON CREEPY FOX NEWS!  The Hosts of the program, similarly, are never probing or asking for clarification of the important issue, an important question to probe is: "why ARE we there?".  This program is dithering, and the speaker is bland, unconvincing of any knowledge base, boring, 10th rate.  Additionally, this is typical of the "Positively Revolting" hour, I usually never tune in when I know these two hosts will be on, bcs. it is never a provoking program, it rarely reveals or provides any new information about anything.  If this program has to continue to be on at all, consider putting it on late at night....it is pablum. 

Good Sista' Bad Sista' on the other hand was a great relief for me on Friday morning's programing, those women are sharp, witty and smart. 

Do not dumb us down with this progam "Positively Revolting", it is a zero.

Pay Equality

I recently heard the argument that the pay differential between men and women is actually fair. This idea is based on the situation of women living longer than men but work the same period of time. This argument claims that the total difference of pay between men and women equals the cost of additional medical care spent for women in their senior years.

For example, let's say a man and a woman work the same number of years (about 40), in the same job with the same responsibilities, and the man makes 10% more than the woman. Say that the job pays (in constant dollars) an average of $30,000 over the forty years. The man makes $1.2 million over this period and the woman makes $1.08 million.

The difference is $120,000. Now at age 60, a man will generally live to be 75 and a woman will live to be 85. Most medical expenses are incurred in the last ten years of live. These costs are paid mostly by public funds through MediCare. The pay_inequality_is_fair argument holds that this $120,000 pay differential is used by society to pay the additional medical expenses that women use and men don't.

I realize that this argument will float like a lead zeppelin on the Positively Revolting community. However, you may want to be aware of it so you don't get blindsided by it in a public debate on the issue.

Thank you,
Alan in Portland

Where did Ani go?

Where did Ani go? I miss her!

I'm here, honest

Hi there, Melodie and I are hosting alternating weeks on Friday mornings, now. I hope you had a chance to hear my program with Norman Solomon last Friday, 11/7, but if you didn't, you can hear it online-- there is a link to the audio on this program page. I will host again on the 21st. Thanks so much for listening! with love & solidarity, ani

woo hoo!

Glad you're still involved in the show. Thanks for all that you do for our community!

much love, m

Wow... How about some positive feedback?

I must have picked a good week to start listening to KBOO. My unhealthy addiction to KPOJ has been shaken. What stirred me to radio hop was the recent clubbing and scrubbing of morning show co-host Heidi Tauber.

Thankfully (along with news I'm not hearing elsewhere) I struck gold with back to back to back mornings of call in shows which were right up my avenue. On Wednesday Barbara Bernstein and friends of the 40 Mile Loop took me on a bike ride down memory lane. The next day, Dave and Jo Ann took on the very difficult but extremely important topic of race and justice in America. I found the candor of the hosts and callers-in to be a much needed breath of fresh air.

Yesterday was quite synergenic. I didn't think anything Positively Revolting would be my pint of brew, but the community of thought that came together was positively revolutionary. I'm still not entirely successful in finding joy amidst the madness, but the range of emotions I was able to experience during the show were a welcome departure from depression. Together we just may succeed... or at least, survive.

KBOO, I think I love U. (And Jeff always has sumpin' to say to go along with that sexy voice! I'm glad he seems to hop around the dial too.)
