KBOO Broadcasts March 14 Mayoral Debate

Categories:

The African American community will be front and center for Portland’s first debate with candidates running for mayor. The debate will take place Friday March 14 from 6 to 7:30pm at Portland Community College’s Cascade Campus, in the auditorium of the Moriarty Building. KBOO will broadcast live from the public forum, which will feature six of the mayoral candidates.

In an announcement from PCC, Cascade Campus President Algie Gatewood noted, “By placing issues of importance to African Americans and other communities of color before the candidates and the voters right out of the gate, we hope to help set the tone that matters of diversity and inclusiveness are critical to the health of our city."

Audio removed from program pages

Categories:

Recently, we had a temporary problem that caused audio files to be removed from the program pages where they are normally listed.  This was related to problems with the date field.

During this time, some of the audio files did not write the air date into the database.  This means that some files will be listed with no date.  You can fix this for the audio you have uploaded by going to the "edit" function for that audio page and entering in the date.

Updates

After a lapse in blog postings, I will using this again as a way to keep users up-to-date on any issues related to the website. 

Please check here before reporting an error, as I will try to post reports as situations arise.

Do Muslim Women Need Saving?

When the United States and its allies invaded Afghanistan, one of the prominent justifications was liberating the people George W Bush called “women of cover” from the Taliban.  Laura Bush told us in 2002  that “the fight against terrorism is also a fight for the rights and dignity of women."  Similarly, in March 2003, shortly after the United States and its allies invaded Iraq, women's rights and gender equity  were mentioned as symbolic issues for Iraq's new national agenda.
