Diana Rohlman on the Black Butte Mine Superfund Site near Cottage Grove

Health and Health Care Forum with host Roberta Hall

A conversation with Diana Rohlman concerning the Superfund site, Black Butte Mine, near Cottage Grove, Oregon. We talk about this now-abandoned mercury (cinnabar) mine and some of the toxic remnants left behind, together with the health risks the mine poses. The history of the mine, typical of many other from the 19th and 29th centuries, goes from full-steam ahead, to abandonment, and back again several times. The community wanted this project and many have worked there or have family members who did. Diana Rohlman is the Outreach Coordinator at the OSU Environmental Science Health Center and works with other scientists, with a local school and its principal, and with the community in Cottage Grove.

Short Description: 
Justin Lewis - Media & Consumer Capitalism

Orchestrated wants driven by sophisticated advertising techniques have created a culture of consumption. Appetites for the latest hot thing are engineered. Media campaigns sell cool and sexy. Marketing is key. Data are collected. People are profiled, then targeted. Cell phones. Have to get the latest one with all new features, faster processor and design. We can't be left behind. More sales means more profits. The capitalist economic system is predicated on making money and barely considers the environmental effects down the road. That's somebody else's problem. In the U.S., consumerism is connected to ideology. Freedom is equated with the ability to buy things. But the pattern of endless consumption is not sustainable.

Christmas with the Enemy

Air date: 
Wed, 12/24/2014 - 9:00am - 10:00am
Short Description: 
How some soldiers in WWI laid down their guns and celebrated Christmas with each other
Humanity at its best amidst the brutality of war.

The hundredth anniversary telling of the hectic rush into WWI, and the horrors unleashed. The men thought they'd be home by Christmas to tell of the excitement over a glass by the fireside. German High Command promised a "fresh and cheerful war." But by Christmas a million soldiers lay dead, with no end it sight. In defiance of commanding officers, and at risk of their lives, the soldiers lay down their guns and climbed out of their trenches armed with wine, food and cigarettes, to greet the others, exchange gifts, and agree to a ceasefire.

They ate, they sang, their played together. They brought in the wounded and buried the dead, often with men of both armies working as one.
