JESSICA KANTOR – Ava DuVernay Shares Her Advice for Women to Break Glass Ceilings: “Focus on Your Work”

Ava DuVernay is a woman who’s used to being first. The first African American woman director to have a film nominated for a Best Picture Oscar (2014’s Selma). The first woman of color to direct a $100 million film (Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time, out next summer). The trailblazing creator, writer, director, and co-executive producer of OWN’s new hit series …

Harvey Wasserman – How Nuclear Power Causes Global Warming

upporters of nuclear power like to argue that nukes are the key to combatting climate change. Here’s why they are dead wrong. Every nuclear generating station spews about two-thirds of the energy it burns inside its reactor core into the environment. Only one-third is converted into electricity. Another tenth of that is lost in transmission. According to the Union of Concerned Scientists: Nuclear fission is the …

F. William Engdahl – What Media Hid in De Niro Autism Film Affair

Dr. Andrew Wakefield, a former British gastro-enterologist and vaccine researcher has been fully exonerated of the charges that he, together with a world renowned pediatric gastroenterologist, Prof. John Walker-Smith, conducted fraudulent tests with children that raised the possibility of a link between the popular MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine and onset of autism and other severe symptoms. Most remarkable is …

Tom Engelhardt – This Article Is Not About Donald Trump

Think of the 2016 presidential campaign as the political equivalent of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.  It’s loud; there are plenty of abusive special effects; the critics hate it, but the crowds turn out; a media company or three rake in the dough; and foreigners can’t get enough of this new vision of the American way of life — or is …

The Illusion of Western News

Multi-million-dollar advertising money has long been suspected as an unspoken filter for Western news media coverage. If the news conflicts with advertising interests then it is simply dropped. Western complicity in Yemen’s conflict is a case study. Add to that the celebrity sheen of Hollywood stars Jennifer Aniston and Nicole Kidman. What we then have is an illustration of how ugly realities of killing and …

Paul Rosenberg – George W. Bush’s military lies: The real story about the undeniable service gaps he got away with

Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein weren’t just journalistic heroes in the normal sense. Their work on Watergate redefined the journalistic world they inhabited, making them more like heroes in the classic mythical sense, as culture-founding figures, whose creation the rest of us merely live inside of. Everyone wanted to be the next Woodward and Bernstein. That stature was underscored by …

George Monbiot – On Bullshit

Eat less meat and fish, drink less milk. No request could be simpler, or more consequential. Nothing we do has greater potential for reducing our impacts on the living planet. Yet no request is more likely to elicit a baffled, hurt or furious response. This point comes across with astonishing force in the film Cowspiracy. I would question some of the figures …

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!

Iron Man and Transformers Were Censored by US Military For Getting Too Close To The Truth

It sounds almost unimaginable, but it isn’t the script of a new Hollywood movie: the Pentagon has literally forced movie producers to turn villains into heroes, add U.S. Military rescues, as well as changing scenes that they deem “sensitive.” Producers and directors say they are literally being forced to re-write scripts. If the United States Department of Defense deems their content ­inappropriate, the changes …
