Dr. Vern Saboe on the Rights of Injured Workers under Oregon Law
Health and Health Care Forum

Dr. Vern Saboe talks with host host Roberta Hall about injured workers' rights, specifically, the right under Oregon law to choose what treatment provider s/he sees after an injury on the job. In some cases, injured workers do not know their rights and are sent directly to a clinic of the employer’s choosing. We discuss a proposed legislative remedy and how this remedy has been blocked when it has come before the legislature in the past. In this discussion we learn about a means by which the will of legislators, and by extension the will of the people who elect them, can be circumvented, not just in this type of case but perhaps others as well.

Exclusive interview with lawyer Stanley Cohen on effort to release ISIS hostage
Download:
On this KBOO exclusive, we speak with Stanley Cohen, the lifelong activist lawyer whose commitment to justice has brought him to odds with the US government on more than one occasion.

This time, however, Stanley found himself in the position of having to coordinate with State Department officials when he traveled to Jordan in October as a private individual to try to secure the release of Peter Abdul-Rahman Kassig, who had been taken hostage by ISIS.

Whether the Jordanian government intentionally mis-led their powerful U.S. ally, or the U.S. had no intention of allowing it, the release effort was sabotaged when Jordan arrested one of those involved.  Soon after that sabotage, Kassig was killed by his captors.

Living on the Ice Shelf, Humanity's Melt Down

Host Per Fagereng interviews Mike Davis, author of Planet of Slums and In Praise of Barbarians.

He discusses his latest article, "Living on the Ice Shelf, Humanity's Melt Down".

Davis says, "Our world, our old world that we have inhabited for the last 12,000 years, has
ended, even if no newspaper in North America or Europe has yet printed its
scientific obituary. This February, while cranes were hoisting cladding to the
141st floor of the Burj Dubai tower (which will soon be twice the height of the
Empire State Building), the Stratigraphy Commission of the Geological Society of
London was adding the newest and highest story to the geological column."

It turns out that the Holocene -- that recent inter-glacial warm interval
when we made ourselves at home on this planet -- is so all over. Welcome to the
Anthropocene, an Earth epoch defined by the emergence of urban-industrial
society as a geological force -- and get used to it.

In this post, Davis considers just how dire things are on our small,
warming planet (dire indeed!) and lays out in no uncertain terms just why those
who are hoping to rely on market mechanisms and carbon trading as a solution to
global warming are bound to be deeply disappointed.
