The Dentata arrives on KBOO!

Sonnette Ehlers, creator of the RapeAxe anti-rape condom, will speak LIVE ON AIR with Theresa Mitchell on today's Press**Watch.  Mme. Ehlers created the condom, which is worn by women, to counteract rape and to identify rapists after the fact.  On her website, Sonnette writes "It's time to fight back!"

It is absurd that women and children In this day and age still fall prey to opportunistic sexual predators. When will they be empowered? When will they be heard? Never, it seems! There always appears to be a more important issue to be addressed in legislature.

Ye scurvy barrrnacles! Harken!

Thursday I be preparin' to launch PrrressWench with Peter Leeson, who has written "The Invisible Hook," (get it?), a history of the democracies that we call historic pirate society. 'Tis an eye opener and no mistake.

I need PIRATES who be ready to say "ARRRGH" a lot in the background.

And then I need rum! A lot of rum!

How did the pirate raise his mast?

He used a wench!

Why does it take pirates so long to learn the alphabet?

Because they can spend years at C!

Yes, I'll be using BOTH THOSE AWFUL JOKES AND MORE, so be sure to put in a landin' party. Or at least tune in.

Host Theresa Mitchell speaks with professor Paul Zarembka, author of "The Hidden History of 9-11."

Zarembka will be lecturing and signing his book on Saturday, March 14th at 2PM at Laughing Horse Books, 12 NE 10th Ave, Portland Oregon

Zarembka addresses the question of how much insider trading occurred in the days leading up to 9/11. Also, how compromised is the evidence against alleged hijackers because of serious authentication problems with a key Dulles Airport videotape? To what extent does the testimony of more than five hundred firefighters differ from official reports of what happened at the World Trade Center buildings that day? How inseparably connected are Western covert operations to al-Qaeda?
How is Islamophobia used to sustain US imperialism?

Paul Zarembka is professor of economics at the State University of New York at Buffalo. Editor since 1977 of Research in Political Economy, this series of twenty-four annual volumes addresses economic and political issues from the perspective of the social classes involved. He is the author of Toward a Theory of Economic Development and editor of Frontiers in Econometrics. Daniel McFadden’s chapter in the latter was a cited motivation for McFadden’s 2000 Nobel Prize in Economics. Zarembka is coeditor of Essays in Modern Capital Theory. He has been a senior researcher at the International Labor Organization, Geneva, Switzerland, a Fulbright-Hayes lecturer in Poznan, Poland. Currently working within the Marxist tradition on a book on the accumulation of capital, he been a union president on his campus and is currently its grievance officer for academics. The Hidden History of 9-11-2001 first appeared in 2006 as part of the Research in Political Economy series.

From post-Katrina evacuee camps, to torture testimony at Angola Prison, to organizing with the family members of the Jena Six, Floodlines tells the stories behind the headlines, from an unforgettable time and place in history.
