Love Lust And Laughter – 08.25.15

Dr. Susan Block author of “THE BONOBO WAY – The Evolution of Peace through Pleasure” (www.BonoboWay.com) returned to the program. Dr. Suzy and Dr. Diana focused on the ways to release one’s inner bonobo. (Marilyn Monroe’s quote fits: “Sex is part of nature. I go along with nature.”) The author asks, What do these great apes know about sex, war and the rest of life that we don’t? The bonobos embrace sexual pleasure, and along the way exhibit bisexuality, female solidarity, deep compassion, curiosity, generosity, reciprocity, swinging, combining food with sex – infusing play into everything they do. It would seem that bonobos are really smart – yet sexy and fun! Part 1 of this show is archived, July 28th… and we will do a Part 3 very soon. Please listen and learn – Dr. Suzy is brilliant!

Solartopia Green Power and Wellness Hour – 08.25.15

VICTORY over NUKE-POWERED EXELON! Thanks to the hard work of countless safe energy and community activists, the Public Service Commission of Washington, DC, has rejected Exelon’s $6.4 billion attempt to take over the 2 million-person territory now served by Pepco.

As explained by TIM JUDSON of the Nuclear Information & Resource Service (based in DC), and by DAVE KRAFT of the Nuclear Energy Information Service (based in Chicago), the rejection represents a huge step forward for a Solartopian economy.

Exelon owns some two dozen US reactors, about half the nation’s fleet. Its plan was to capture Pepco’s market for nuke power. Instead, Pepco may now push ahead with its own renewable and efficiency programs.

Tim also explains for us the campaign to shut the Ginna reactor in upstate New York, while Tim lays out the huge battle in Illinois that could soon result in five more shut-downs there.

Overall, this gratifying hour of Solartopian expertise importantly confirms the ever-more powerful movement away from lethal atomic power and toward the green-based economy we need to survive.

Israeli President Affirms Zionist ‘Right’ to Build in West Bank

A ‘Fresh Start’ for Ferguson’s Court System, But Is It Justice?

A month after Israeli extremists firebombed a Palestinian home in the West Bank village of Duma, killing a father and his 18-month-old son, President Reuven Rivlin yesterday affirmed to leaders of the settler movement that, contrary to international law, Israel had a “right” to build settlements, as “a basic fact of modern Zionism.”

Mark LeVine, professor of Middle Eastern History at the University of California-Irvine and distinguished visiting professor at the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at Lund University in Sweden, addresses Rivlin’s assertion and related issues.

Five months after the U.S. Department of Justice skewered the police department and criminal-justice system in Ferguson, Missouri, for targeting blacks and treating them largely as source of revenue for the city, newly appointed Municipal Court Judge Donald McCullin yesterday announced a series of changes—chief among them dropping all arrest warrants for minor crimes and infractions issued before December 31, 2014.

It’s a good sign, says Leid Stories in a commentary. But is it justice?
