Radiozine
program date: 
Tue, 10/11/2011

Host Kathleen Stephenson interviews Helena Norberg-Hodge, the internationally renowned environmentalist and leading critic of conventional notions of growth and development. She is the recipient of the Right Livelihood Award, also known as the alternative Nobel Prize. She is founder and director of the International Society for Ecology and Culture and author of "Ancient Futures: Learning from Ladakh.

Helena Norberg Hodge talks about the upcoming Portland screening of her documentary film "The Economics of Happiness" on October 14th. The screening is a fundraiser for the Earth and Spirit Council. The "Economics of Happiness" depicts a world that, on the one hand, continues to promote globalization and the consolidation of corporate power. But at the same time it shows the movements of people around the world who are resisting those policies, demanding a re-regulation of trade and finance—and, far from the old institutions of power, they’re starting to forge a very different future.

Also part of the interview is Linda Rudnick, a board member of the Earth and Spirit Council.

Join the Earth and Spirit Council for a special fundraising screening of The Economics of Happiness, a documentary about the worldwide movement for localization by Helena Norberg-Hodge, Steven Gorelick & John Page, held at The Hollywood Theatre at 7 pm on Friday, October 14, 2011.

CAIR: Where do the Feds Get These People? Anti-Muslim 'Trainers' unleashed on the Rookies

A Washington state Muslim group has asked the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate alleged anti-Islam bias in FBI trainings of law enforcement officers and regular citizens.

In a letter mailed Monday to the department's civil rights division, the Washington Council on American-Islam Relations accused the FBI of trainings that including "false, misleading and fear-producing information."

The letter lists a number of complaints about FBI trainings, including one in Seattle last spring, where participants at a "citizens' academy" at the FBI office said they were given a handout comparing Arab/Islamic propaganda with Nazi propaganda.

The complaint also mentioned an FBI training lecture in Washington, D.C., also last spring that was critical of Islam. The bureau employee who gave the lecture contended, among other things, that the more devout a Muslim is, the more likely he is to be violent. The lecture came to light last month, at which time the FBI said it has begun a review of its training to make sure it is consistent with FBI standards.

A Muslim-American woman who participated in the Seattle training said she was surprised by the handout because everything else about the eight-session "citizens' academy" had been respectful.

The FBI in Seattle has issued a statement saying the agency is currently conducting a comprehensive review of all training and reference materials that relate to religion or culture.

Ben Ross, co-author of THE POLLUTERS, on the chemical industry's impacts on health and environment

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Mon, 09/19/2011

Roberta Hall of Health and Health Care Forum hosts a conversation with Ben Ross, co-author of "The Polluters: The Making of Our Chemically Altered Environment", which examines the history of the chemical industry's impacts on health and the environment.

Benjamin Ross and Steven Amter tell the story of how the chemical industry, abetted by a compliant government, set loose a plague of pollution that began in the years before and directly following World War II, a plague that still lingers today. The advent of new synthetic chemical products such as Nylon and DDT created new hazards just as the expansion and mechanization of industry exacerbated old ones. Environmental dangers well known today — smog, pesticides, lead, chlorinated solvents, asbestos, and even global warming — were already recognized in that era by chemists, engineers, doctors, and business managers. A few of them spoke out about these dangers, others overlooked scientific truth in pursuit of wealth and prestige, and many struggled to find a balance between the interests of industry and the needs of the wider world.

In Railroaded: The Transcontinentals and the Making of Modern America, historian Richard White tells the story of corporate misconduct, incompetence and greed surrounding the construction of the transcontinental railroads that changed America. White reconstructs the convoluted paper trail that enriched Gilded Age capitalists and triggered three economic crisis in the late 19th century." Dave Mazza hosts.
