Discussions about climate change usually focus on rising sea levels and reducing carbon emissions. What we don't hear about much is how climate change disproportionately impacts the lives of women in the developing world. On this special International Women's Day segment of Locus Focus, we look at why climate change is a women's issue, and learn about initiatives that can help women in the developing world to reduce the carbon footprints of their communities while at the same time empowering their lives.

Last year a group of Sellwood residents created a neighborhood movement that helped shape the design and impact of the soon-to-be rebuilt Sellwood Bridge. At the height of this organizing drive, a neighborhood march drew hundreds of people from all corners of the neighborhood, united in a desire for a bridge that enhances the neighborhood's pedestrian and bicycle-oriented qualities. Locus Focus host Barbara Bernstein took part in the march and it was there that she met some of the guests on this week's Locus Focus, who join her for a discussion about creating sustainable projects in our neighborhoods that not only help mitigate climate change but also build a sense of community.

SUSTAINABLE SELLWOOD: THE MAKING OF COMMUNITY

Voices from the Edge on 02/25/10

On January 21, 2010, the U.S. Supreme court took another step in the long - and many say misguided - journey to granting corporations personhood under the U.S. Constitution. In Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, a five-member majority of the court increased the ability of corporations to use their wealth to influence our electoral process. Recent polling shows that more than 75 percent of Americans think the ruling further weakens our democratic institutions and the power of people to govern themselves.

Eclectronic superfudge with a live performance by Graintable

Tune into KBOO this Tuesday night 3/2/10 for a live performance by GRAINTABLE. Hes been lighting up the Westcoast with his blend of electronic superfudge. Catch up with him about the new Chip Chop release, a few Portland shows and find out what goes on in the mind of the sonic scientist. It all starts at 8pm on Portlands own 90.7fm KBOO.

Emerging on the experimental electronic music scene in 2008, Graintable is quickly making a name for himself with melodically mutated hip hop beats and bass heavy bangers. Busting out MPC-style sample bashing live sets, Graintable creates heavy grooves laden with high energy sound scapes that will keep repeating in your head for days. Graintable released his first track on RUNRIOT’s Motion Sickness compilation in ‘09 and is currently working on more synthed out brain stomping tracks to rip through portable music boxes and dance floors in 2010.
