Damian Platt and "Culture Is Our Weapon: Making Music and Changing Lives in Rio De Janeiro"

Categories:
program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Mon, 03/22/2010

 The guest is Damian Platt, co-author with Patrick Neate, of CULTURE IS OUR WEAPON: Making Music and Changing Lives in Rio De Janeiro.

Damian will talk about his work with the Rio-based NGO AfroReggae, a group who uses music and art to keep the children of Rio’s favelas out of the pervasive drug trade. AfroReggae was forged out of the 1993 police massacre of 21 people in one of the favelas. Founded by ex-drug traffickers, AfroReggae works to take young people out of the drug/gang culture and harness the ingenuity and creativity of their communities to provide positive alternatives for young people. It shows the side of Rio beyond the tans of Ipanema and the pageantry of Carnival - the Rio you won’t find in any tourist guidebook.

DAMIAN PLATT was born in Nairobi and grew up in West London. From the age of fifteen onwards he traveled widely around Europe. He reached Brazil for the first time in 1994. He was a Brazil Campaigner for Amnesty International between 1997 and 2005, where he researched human rights in the USA, Colombia, Haiti and Brazil among other countries. Between 2006 and 2008 he was the Coordinator for International Partnerships at the cultural group AfroReggae in Rio de Janeiro. He is currently involved in a number of cultural projects in Rio, including the setting up of a cultural center in Providência, the first officially recognized favela in Brazil.

Damian will be speaking at Powell’s on Hawthorne on Monday, March 22nd.

POWELL’S ON HAWTHORNE, 3723 SE Hawthorne Blvd, 7 PM

Interview with Alissa Hamilton, author of "Squeezed: What You Don't Know About Orange Juice"

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Mon, 02/22/2010

 Host Bruce Silverman interviews Alissa Hamilton, author of "Squeezed: What You Don't Know About Orange Juice."

Alissa Hamilton is a Food and Society Policy Fellow with the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy. She lives in Toronto.

Close to three quarters of U.S. households buy orange juice. Its popularity crosses class, cultural, racial, and regional divides. Why do so many of us drink orange juice? How did it turn from a luxury into a staple in just a few years? More important, how is it that we don’t know the real reasons behind OJ’s popularity or understand the processes by which the juice is produced?

Alissa Hamilton explores the hidden history of orange juice in "Squeezed: What You Don't Know About Orange Juice," published by Yale University Press. She looks at the early forces that propelled orange juice to prominence, including a surplus of oranges that plagued Florida during most of the twentieth century and the army’s need to provide vitamin C to troops overseas during World War II. She tells the stories of the FDA’s decision in the early 1960s to standardize orange juice, and the juice equivalent of the cola wars that followed between Coca-Cola (which owns Minute Maid) and Pepsi (which owns Tropicana).

Of particular interest to OJ drinkers will be the revelation that most orange juice comes from Brazil, not Florida, and that even “not from concentrate” orange juice is heated, stripped of flavor, stored for up to a year, and then reflavored before it is packaged and sold. The book concludes with a thought-provoking discussion of why consumers have the right to know how their food is produced.

Doug Fine - Can a Digital Age Human live without petroleum?

Categories:
program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Wed, 01/27/2010

 Host Erik Jorgensen interviews reporter Doug Fine, a speaker at “Today's Transportation Choices”  at the Portland International Auto Show on Thursday morning, January 28

 

As a young freelancer, Fine reported for the Washington Post, Salon, U.S. News and World Report, Sierra, Wired, Outside, National Public Radio, and other venues from little-visited jungle war zones like Burma, Rwanda, Laos, Guatemala and Tajikistan. He became a world-class adventure writer and investigative journalist, writing culturally insightful and funny dispatches. One of these, about democracy efforts in Burma, was read into the U.S. Congressional Record.

 

Later he moved to extreme rural Alaska to see if a former suburbanite could survive away from Costco. Happiness and self-awareness were the goals. This resulted in his award-nominated first book, Not Really An Alaskan Mountain Man, a wildly humorous and meaningful adventure narrative, which is now in its third printing.

For his second book decided to embark on a “Hypocrisy Reduction Project,” to see if he could truly live a sustainable lifestyle. He moved to an obscure valley in Southern New Mexico to write Farewell, My Subaru, to quite simply examine whether a Digital Age Human can live without Petroleum but without giving up any of his Digital Age Comforts. His conclusion? He can, once he figures out how to keep the coyotes from eating his chickens, his solar panels from electrocuting him, and his vegetable oil truck exhaust from giving him a bad case of the munchies (it smells like Kung Pao chicken).

Pacific Northwest and CWCC present "Today’s Transportation Choices" by Doug Fine at the Portland Intl Auto Show, Oregon Convention Center, 9:00 am to 1:30 pm -  -www.cwcleancities.org
