This program reports on two(2) topics: The terrible human toll from events in Southern Sudan, and the dangerous effects of government intervention in our private lives. This extends from surveillance of our phones, Internet correspondence, all the way to our actual minds!! Mind control over large populations is documented, as well as possible future convergence of NSA total capture surveillance, combined with HAARP Mind Control technology, both of which exist separately--for now!!
World Food Day presents a 9 part discussion of the danger of Climate Change to our food security, World-Wide. Ray Suarez of PBS, hosts this discussion with many key people that are familiar with the science of climate change, and it's impact on food production.
The US Dept. of Agriculture, in partnership with the FAO (the United Nations Food & and Agriculture Organization), accomplish many programs that enable sustainable agriculture, both here and in other countries. In spite of criticism of USDA as a racist outfit, it still manages somehow, to render much needed credit, even to minorities( although it usually takes a lawsuit!!)
Hunger needs to be combatted, especially when the Tea Party would just as soon see people DIE FROM HUNGER! They've SHOUTED IT OUT AT THEIR "CONFERENCES"!! Learn what we can do to strike at the heart of these evil animals. The Koch Brothers--Koch Industries-should be our target. Ban Ki Moon, General Secretary of the United Nations also speaks about our needed response to World-wide humanitarian disasters.
Carefirst Blue Cross/Blue Shield, is the largest private health insurance company in the Washington Metro area. And it has been since the 1950s, when it was just Blue Cross. Unfortunately, even though it is TECHNICALLY still a non-profit, ostensibly dedicated to the general health welfare of our citizens, the behavior of it's CEO ( who receives mega-bucks for leading a NOT-FOR-PROFIT organization , AND it's Board of Directors belies this beneficent exterior. $268 Million in over-charges is due back to it's customers, but in DC, Carefirst CLAIMS IT ALREADY GAVE THE MONEY BACK, IN SPITE OF ASSERTIONS BY THE DC HEALTH COMMISSIONER TO THE CONTRARY!! Boy, if you just only knew the unbelievable level of corruption going on in Washington DC, the Nation's Capitol!
The United Nations examines how people are forced off their land, or don't even have ANY LAND AT ALL, to even do subsistance farming. Having a decade devoted to Land Reform, has not done a lot to help poor people, especially in India, Bangladesh, Central & South America. This translates to over 1 BILLION people who are landless, and therfore forced to survive in cheap labor economies.
The extreme suffering of refugee women is examined here, as aid is given to these desperate women. The United Nations Specialized Agencies, especially the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees(UNHCR), has won the Nobel Peace Prize-- TWICE!!!- 1951 AND 1978. You will see that, before WW II, there were NO international organizations, except the Red Cross, that did ANYTHING, to help women in the throes of war. This is why the Un MUST be supported!!!

Refugees International is a long heralded non-governmental humanitarian rescue organization, founded to help refugees survive, regardless of their location. This program covers the South American country of Columbia. Few people realize that Columbia has several MILLION people who are refugees, both internally and externally displaced. Although their situation has improved a tinsy, tiny bit since this program first aired, the causes, and solutions to their dilemma still stand. A surprise for most people, is that Columbia, not Honduras or El Salvador, or even Mexico, has the largest number of Refugees in Central or South America.
Climate Change is causing Extreme drought in Eastern and Southern Africa, as well as in Syria & Iraq. This may explain why so many people had migrated from the countryside to Damascus, several years before the Civil War (possiblhy caused by the US HAARP Program-used against enemies of Israel). This program shows in graphic detail, the suffering and plight of farmers in these areas. Mitigation is very possible, but must rely on the good auspices of the International Community, who are presently ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL!!!
South Sudan, a new country less than 5 years old, is in the grip of a famine, . 6 million people are facing famine conditions, as determined by the UN. Civil war is the main reason, although exacerbated by severe drought. Major media refuse to cinsistently cover this. The UN Secretary General says the next 3 weeks, to a month, could be the most critical.Call your media and TELL THEM TO COVER THESE 4 FAMINES!!
A frightening near-death experience led Patt Lind-Kyle, author of "Heal Your Mind, Rewire Your Brain", to wonder what happens to the mind during the dying process. Her explorations led to writing a new book "Embracing the End of Life." She invites readers to prepare now — for living with less stress each day as well as during the dying process. She covers legal and practical issues, and the important choice of caregivers while you’re dying. Her primary focus is on cultivating now the consciousness that you’ll be in while dying — what she calls the “expanded self.”

Part 1 of "Cuba, Libre?" shows Cuba as an glamorous tropical tourist destination in the years before Fidel Castro led a revolution that ousted the government of Fulgencio Batista which had been favorable to the U.S., and replaced it with a Communist government that was allied with America's nemesis, the Soviet Union.
Film noir and spy films of the mid-20th century were a staple of both movie and television entertainment. "The White Bag: A Film Noir Spy Spoof" takes a look at some of those classic films and introduces a modern-day, tongue-in-cheek "take" on them as our hero, the "Ace of Spies," tries to protect Planet Earth from destruction at the hands of evil-doers, followed by a "making of" segment which explains how this latest in a line of such films was produced.

Derrick Jensen reflects on the bird and frog songs he loves, and the richness of longtime relationships with natural places where one lives. By contrast, and especially in cities, our sensory input is largely mediated by machines (computers, television, radio, cars, etc.) Being surrounded only by human input, it can be very easy to forget there’s a real world — the natural world not created and controlled by humans. In his latest book "The Myth of Human Supremacy", he notes that unquestioned assumptions are the real authorities in a culture. “We often hear that evolution itself is based on competition, that it’s ruthless, it’s survival of the fittest, the meanest, the most capitalist, the most abusive. If you believe that, it’ll cause you to act in that fashion.” By contrast, Derrick asks us to consider, “how do you think the world got to be so wild and fecund and beautiful in the first place? Obviously it has been built up…. Every salmon living and dying makes the forest a better place by its life and death…. How do YOU make the world a better place?” [derrickjensen.org]

Trump's pro-billionaire agenda and plans to wage war on the environment, deport three million immigrants, undermine public sector unions, and nominate a reactionary Supreme Court justice are not just idle threats. Yet the neoliberal leaders of the Democratic Party cannot stop Trump now, anymore than during the election. How can we build powerful mass movements capable of decisively defeating the right and providing a real alternative for ordinary working people, immigrants, LGBTQ people and youth? Can the Democratic Party be reformed, or does the left need to build independently?
