RIGHT AFTER the foundation of Israel, God appeared to David Ben-Gurion and told him: “You have done good by my people.

Warrior Connection – 11.01.15

The November 1 Warrior Connection was a very valuable discussion led by Denise Nichols, RN, (BS/ MS) and Doug Rokke with Dr Nick Osborne, Ph.D.- interim director of the Center for Wounded Veterans in Higher Education at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, We discussed benefits, expectations, and support for veterans once they enroll in college and specifically under the auspices of this new UIUC program. We also expanded our discussion as applicable to other colleges and universities. Clearly the UIUC has a unique program. Doug a UIUC alumni (MS 1986, Ph,D, 1992) and retiree along with Denise who both have extensive college and military education/ training experience offered many valuable suggestions. Nick is in a unique position with tremendous maybe unsurpassed abilities to help student veterans succeed given he served as an enlisted sailor and then as a commissioned officer in the Coast Guard then rose through the ranks in academia. Nick has gathered a very capable staff too.

The Gary Null Show – 08.12.15

Derrick Jensen has become one of the nation’s leading voices of cultural and environmental dissent, who writes on how civilization is devastating the environment and the natural world, and our society’s denial of that fact. Utne Reader listed Derrick among the 50 visionaries changing the world. In sharp contrast to environmental optimists who believe working within the corporate system will offset the tenuous planetary balance threatened by climate change, Derrick has advocated for many years a “dismantling of civilization” which can include radical dissent as well as imparting wisdom to our children.

Derrick has written many books, his most recent being “The Derrick Jensen Reader: Writings on Environmental Revolution” and “Earth At Risk: Building a Resistance Movement to Save the Planet.” He also hosts a weekly radio program, Resistance Radio, on the Progressive Radio Network every Sunday evening at 6:00 pm Eastern time. His website is www.DerrickJensen.org
