Beyond Biological Reductionism Raymond Tallis

Beyond Biological Reductionism — Raymond Tallis

Can people's behavior really be explained by neuroscience and our evolutionary needs as hunter-gatherers -- or is this just a popular fad? Does understanding the brain really solve the mysteries of being human? Neurologist Dr. Raymond Tallis, philosopher, Academy of Medical Sciences Fellow, and author of Why the Mind is Not a Computer and Aping Mankind: Neuromania, Darwinitis and the Misrepresentation of Humanity, exposes the bad science and faulty logic behind pop obsessions with the brain and evolutionary psychology.

Earthquakes in Portland? Since when?!

Portland Prepared

The Pacific Northwest has long been an area stricken by earthquakes and tectonic forces.  The problem is... no one thought to Google that information as they were building cities along the entire West coast, 200 years ago.  Then earthquakes started to level the cities of California in the 1800's and, in the early 1950's, Portland learned that we were also in the same boat.

It's no longer a case of 'if' it will happen, but 'when' and now that we know that, what we choose to do about our own personal preparedness can determine how well we will fare in the days after the next 'event of note'.

Joe talks about Coal Trains through Oregon

program date: 
Tue, 08/21/2012

 Hosted by Joe Uris.  Abe Proctor is on Vacation.

Today's topic is the Coal Industry, and their plans to chop down Mountains in Appalacia and ship them through the Columbia Gorge, to China for incineration.  This is a Bad Idea for many reasons.  The trains leak significant amounts of Coal Dust, which degrades our health and environment.  Burning Coal in China increases the Air Pollution right here, in the United States, for we live on a Globe, a closed system.  Chopping down Mountains and throwing the rubble and waste into Streams is very destructive.
