Is health care reform in critical condition? An interview with Wendell Potter

Over 75 percent of Americans want health care reform according to a new Pew Research poll. President Obama remains committed to reforming our health care system this year. But as Congress struggles to craft legislation, the voice of concerned voters is getting drowned out by a vocal minority working from the same play book. Will serious health care reform die on the operating table at the hands of industry spin doctors?

How We Interact Online

program: 
The Digital Divide
program date: 
Mon, 06/08/2009

Today we’ll be examining how the internet has changed the way people interact with one another.

Our first story comes to us from The Old Mole Varity Hour where Women's Studies Professor Brooke Campbell spoke with the Old Mole's Jan Haaken about recent controversies over erotic services offered on the online bulletin board, Craigslist.

Next we look at what it means to move our lives online.  We’ve found a way to do everything over the internet, and for many, its becoming a concerning issue that so much of our interaction has become virtual. Spoken word performer Jello Biafra took aim at online social networking at the recent Hacker’s on Planet Earth conference.

Does reorganizing Portland's high schools make sense?

Portland's high school dropout rate is the highest in the metropolitan area. While the statewide rate declined last year, Portland high school students are dropping out at twice the rate - 8.2 percent - of students in other Oregon communities. The city's high schools are also grappling with other issues: a growing number of students opting for GED credentials, budget shortfalls, and demands from parents for greater accountability to the community.

Toni Tabora-Roberts interviews Curtis Choy about his film "Manilatown is in the Heart".  A favorite at the DisOrient film festival in April, the film is a tribute to late poet and activist Al Robles. 

In the 1970s, Robles was an activist involved in the San Francisco I-Hotel struggle, a fight which is now burned into Filipino-American civil rights history.

After a decade-long protest, many low-income elderly Manong were evicted, effectively dismantling the last enclave of downtown San Francisco's historic Manilatown community.

"Manilatown is in the Heart"will show for one night only in Portland on Friday, June 26th at the Hollywood Theater.
