Haiti relief efforts:
We have done some research, and are recommending these groups, which have a track record of working with the community on the ground in Haiti, and are either Haitian-led or take their lead from Haitian ground staff, to empower the community with solidarity, not charity.

Wed, 01/20/2010 - 11:00am - 12:00pm
Short Description: 
Truffle dogs, parsnips and turnips, and Chinese New Year.

We speak with local dog trainers and mycologists about how hunting with hounds could improve the culinary reputation of Oregon's underground wild truffles. Using dogs, instead of blindly hand-raking, is less damaging to forest ecosystem, as truffles grow at the roots of young Douglas firs.

Then we hear from Emily Stimac of the First Alternative Co-op in Corvallis on how to cook with in-season parsnips and turnips.

Finally, we close with food recommendations for the upcoming Chinese New Year.

Israel's Gaza Invasion: One year later

After a devastating Israeli assault on the Gaza Strip from Dec. 27, 2008 - Jan. 20, 2009 which resulted in over 1400 Palestinians killed by Israelis and 5 Israelis killed by Palestinians, the population of Gaza has been unable to rebuild the 20,000 destroyed homes and buildings due to an ongoing Israeli-imposed siege.  A year after the attack, we look at what role the US has played in the ongoing assault on Gaza, the solidarity marches which will be arriving at the Gaza border as we speak, and examine the history of the refugee population of the Gaza Strip.  Tune in from 8 am to 8 pm on Wednesday, December 30th, for our all day special on Gaza.
