    part 5 - intersecting diversity with the environmental movement - economics

    in Environment

    Episode 2: Part 5:
    The purspose of this show is to be an introduction to next month's (June) theme. The next will be Episode 3.
    The purpose of today's show is to critique who is getting sustainable, long term, green employment.  At the same time as recruiting more diversity representation, who is getting paid and able to make a living doing 'conscious' / 'ethical' green work? Today's show will introduce the concept of green racism and look at this as a systemic process, the case in study will be the organization called "Green Peace". At the same time as having a great name, and promoting the idea to save the world and nature, the people creating the campaigns, decision makers and research paper writers are predominately white while the person's folding envelopes and answering phones is diversity people from employment equity groups.  People of color are also the ones assigned to make fundraising calls and do the degrading work of asking people for money to fund the organization. Today's show wil interrogate this practice called Green Institutional Racism. What green organizations proposing to be open, diverse and sustainable are practicing this Green Economic Racism? Let's talk about this green world problem and collectively decide next steps that provide a better solution.

    in Environment

    Coach Mark Smallwood,  Executive Director, Rodale Institute
    This is an organization in action. Since 1947, they have been committed to growing a future that will nourish and sustain generations to come – a future built upon rich, healthy soil and into which they can sink their roots. The Rodale Institute is one of but a very few organizations doing independent agricultural research in the field.  They are not a “think tank” – they get their hands dirty. They establish research projects that give farmers the tools and knowledge to increase soil health, crop quality and yields AND simplify farm management overall. And imagine this – they work to ensure citizens feel confident the food we feed our families is good for us and for the world around us. This show was made possible due to the generous support of The Fairfax Companies.

    Whats going on in our Skys

    in Environment

    It’s starting to look more and more like UFO’s are highly involved with chemtrail dispersion in our skies, I’ve seen the planes vanish into thin air after morphing in a ball of light for a second or two. They vanish and reappear, they change color and shape and many of them look like a plain white cardboard cut-out – flat with no detail whatsoever.
    In other words, it appears there’s a whole lot more than meets the eye to the chemtrail problem…mystery?! Things are getting very bizarre…or maybe they’ve always been this way and the internet is just now exposing it.

    Acupuncture at an Affordable Means

    in Environment

    Andy Wegman is a licensed acupuncturist in New Hampshire. He graduated from Stoughton High School, Stonehill College and The New England School of Acupuncture all located in Massachusetts. He is very lucky to have worked as an acupuncturist in Manchester for the past 16 years.
    Andy established Manchester Acupuncture Studio (MAS) in 2007 as a way to offer affordable health care in the Greater Manchester, NH area. By employing a community acupuncture social-business model,  MAS has been able to accommodate people of broad financial means, while maintaining effective and safe treatment protocols.  However, they are hardly alone in this endeavor towards increasing availability of affordable acupuncture.
    POCA (The People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture), is a multi-stakeholder cooperative owned by patients, practitioners, clinics, and supporters of community acupuncture. POCA’s goal is to make acupuncture available and accessible to as many people as possible and to support those providing acupuncture to create stable and sustainable businesses and jobs. POCA Tech  - the educational arm of POCA – a couple years ago, they received approval for operations through the Department of Education in Oregon.  POCA tech's first goal is to create entry-level training programs for acupuncturists that are affordable to prospective students of ordinary incomes.
    Andy is the author of our easy to read, award-winning book  -  Why Did You Put The Needle There? The most common questions asked by people new to acupuncture.  The book is available on Amazon.com and for free as an e-book and audio-book on the MAS website.  He and his colleagues at MAS gave over 20,000 acupuncture treatments in 2013 alone and are soon to celebrate clinic birthdays in Manchester (#9) and Nashua (#3) clinics.

    The Governor's Build Montana plan calls for a $200 million dollar investment of cash and bonds in 2017, to fund roads, bridges, water systems, and school improvements.
    Bullock is also proposing the creation of the Build Montana Trust, by using 75% of the revenue going into the state's Coal Tax Severance Fund, setting it aside for future infrastructure needs.
    It's the same mechanism that created the Treasure State Endowment Program and Rural Water Projects, two sub-trusts that will mature next year earning enough interest to fund projects in perpetuity.
    Bullock said addressing the state's crumbling infrastructure will be his number one legislative priority in 2017.
