    BENNY J ANDRÉS, Ph.D., UNCC & author, "Power and Control in the Imperial Valley"

    in Business

    The book by Dr. Andrés "Power and Control in the Imperial Valley" examines the evolution of irrigated farming in the Imperial-Mexicali Valley, an arid desert straddling the California–Baja California border. Bisected by the international boundary line, the valley drew American investors determined to harness the nearby Colorado River to irrigate a million acres on both sides of the border. The “conquest” of the environment was a central theme in the history of the valley.


    Colonization in the valley began with the construction of a sixty-mile aqueduct from the Colorado River in California through Mexico. Initially, Mexico held authority over water delivery until settlers persuaded Congress to construct the All-American Canal. Control over land and water formed the basis of commercial agriculture and in turn enabled growers to use the state to procure inexpensive, plentiful immigrant workers.


    Benny Andrés is an Associate Professor of History and Latin American Studies at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where he teaches courses on Latino history, the American West, the U.S.-Mexico borderlands, U.S. immigration during the Progressive Era, U.S. Food history, and a graduate seminar in modern U.S. history. His research and publications examine transmigration, race relations and environmental issues along the California borderlands during the twentieth century.


    Dr. Andrés is a long-time member of the American Historical Association, the Organization of American Historians, the Western History Association, and the American Society of Environmental History. His professional work includes serving on the Alice Hamilton Prize Committee (for best article in environmental history published outside of the journal Environmental History) from 2015 to 2016.

    It's Not All Harley Quinn and Malkavians: Mental Illness Portrayed In Gaming

    in Video Games

    The team at Game Centric Radio will take on a hot-button topic -- depictions of mental illness in gaming! Whether we're looking at video games (from Borderlands to the depictions of Joker and Harley Quinn) to portraying mental illnesses (known as "derangements" in some systems) in table-top gaming, we'll be exploring accuracy and the fine line between "over the top" and downright offensive. We'll even look at character-based board/card games that touch on the subject, such as Gloom and Betrayal at the House on Haunted Hill.

    in Entertainment

    On tonight's G3 Podcast, Adam and Beau return with Matt to welcome Marcel Lapointe and Bob Garlick of the new "Crazy TV Talk" Podcast.  Bob and Marcel stop in to discuss what the podcast is all about, and we discuss what we're looking forward to this fall.
    Adam finished reviewing Borderlands 2 for XBoxAddict, and he and Beau will be discussing what many pre-emptively referred to as the Game of the Year.  Has it stood up to its potential label, and can it withstand the barrage of new games from here until the end of the year to keep that title?
    We'll also discuss that barrage of games coming out, what we're looking forward to this holiday season and the "new" PS3.  Stall tactic?  Improvement?  Beau has a few thoughts on that.
    G3 takes to the air at 8 PM Pacific, 11 PM Eastern.

    You can follow @TheG3Podcast on Twitter to discuss live or throughout the week.  We follow back!

    Here is where to find the hosts and guests of this week's G3 Podcast on Twitter
