Chalmers Johnson's latest book, Nemesis: The Last Days of the American Republic, warned of the possibility of a profligate, militarized U.S.

Fighting Coal Transport Through the Pacific Northwest: Reform and Revolution.

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Fri, 08/17/2012

Oregon and Washington have dramatically reduced coal-powered energy generation. As a result coal companies are pushing to export tens of millions of tons of coal from Montana and Wyoming, through Pacific Northwest ports, to Asian markets. The coal would pass through dozens of communities in Oregon and Washington by rail, barge, or ship. Mercury and other toxins from Asian fired coal returns to the Columbia valley as blowback and acid rain.

Aria Minu-Sepehr on "We Heard the Heavens Then", his memoir of a boy in revolutionary Iran

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Mon, 08/13/2012

 Host Marianne Barisonek speaks with Aria Minu-Sepehr about his book We Heard the Heavens Then, a memoir of a boy in revolutionary Iran.  Seen through the eyes of a ten year old with unusual access to the two poles of his society – modern and traditional – the tale recounts the rising tension, collision, and eventual fallout of the split.

Following the fall of the Shah of Iran in 1979 and the purges that targeted the author’s class, Aria Minu-Sepehr sought refuge in the United States. The hostage crisis, a year later, would prove that the edicts of the Iranian Revolution could impact the global community and destroy the goodwill of one people for another. Aria Minu-Sepehr has worked to bridge that divide. He has lectured on issues concerning Iranian culture and U.S. foreign policy, and created and directed Forum for Middle East Awareness at Susquehanna University, where he also taught world and Middle Eastern literature. In 2007, an excerpt of We Heard the Heavens Then was awarded the John Guyon Literary Non-Fiction Prize. Aria Minu-Sepehr lives with his family in Oregon.

KBOO's Between the Covers reporter Jennifer Kemp and guest reporter Desmond Fuller interviewed So Much Pretty author Cara Hoffman. So Much Pretty is a harrowing, provakative and exhilerating recent novel dealing with small town politics and personal and societal accountability. Hoffman takes the reader to a faltering town in upstate New York where an ambitious Cleveland journalist, a family of DIY countercultural New Yorkers and their fierce and imaginative daughter, and members of the town's industrial agricultural elite all become entangled in the murder of a young, local woman, Wendy White. So Much Pretty is told from the vantage points of multiple characters, jumping back and forth in time, finally arriving at a startling conclusion. A murder mystery on the surface, So Much Pretty delves much deeper into issues of linguistic integrity, economics, rural and urban mentalities, the secret wonders and childhood, environmental degredation and sexual violence.

The Oregon Food Bank: Ending Hunger Through Dedication and Innovation

Wed, 06/27/2012

KBOO volunteers recently visited the Oregon Food Bank distribution center in North Portland to find out more about their efforts to end hunger. Food bank staff gave a guided tour of some facility highlights including the teaching gardens, the chicken coop, and demonstration kitchens. Volunteers contribute thousands of hours to support Food Bank activities, some of which are highlighted during the tour.

Food Bank projects highlighted in this program include:
Plant a Row for the Hungry
Learning Gardens
Community FEAST | Building Food Security
 
One of the Food Bank's many projects is The Waterfront Blues Festival which celebrates its twenty fifth anniversary this year beginning next Wednesday afternoon in downtown Portland. (KBOO will be broadcasting from the Blues Festival live). The festival is the largest fundraiser for the Oregon Food Bank and 100 percent of gate donations and ticket sales directly benefit the Food Bank.

The five-day festival features Charlie Musselwhite, Galactic and the Steve Miller Band to name a few of the national acts highlighting this year’s events. Concert goers are asked to donate two cans of food and ten dollars to see an entire day’s lineup at the Blues Fest.

The Oregon Food Bank’s mission is to eliminate hunger and its root causes, because no one should be hungry. Since 1982, Oregon Food Bank has led the fight against hunger in Oregon and southwest Washington by collecting and distributing food through its regional network of neighborhood food pantries and regional food banks.

The Oregon Food Bank Network helps nearly one in five households fend off hunger. The Food Bank also leads statewide efforts to increase resources for hungry families and to eliminate the root causes of hunger through advocacy, nutrition education, garden education and helping communities strengthen local food systems.

********

Important information from the Oregon Food Bank website:

“As a result of growing levels of long-term unemployment, 260,000 people per month eat meals from emergency food boxes. Of those, 85,800 are children. For the first time ever, Oregon Food Bank distributed more than 1 million emergency food boxes in fiscal year 2010-11.”

“Growing levels of long-term unemployment have forced more and more people to seek emergency food assistance. 28 percent of adult emergency food box recipients are unemployed and looking for work, compared to only 20 percent in 2008.”

“A basic family budget — enough to cover the essential needs for a family of four — was $45,274 in 2007, while a full time job at Oregon's 2010 minimum wage provided only $17,500.”
