    We will discuss the mad rush to obtain gas by using methods that arguably pollute are water, and could have numerous long term consequences for our fresh water supply and our health.

    Dr. Carol Francis Radio Talk Show interviews a prime peaceful activist Woman, Pauline Matt, who on August 5-12, 2012 will Walk a Peaceful Protest Against Hydraulic Fracturing the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana.
    Fracking, Hydraulic Fracturing, kills the land, animals, plants by poisoning the waters.
    Every country must face that raping any land or fresh water source for money is wrong. Yet money buys blindness. Money buys mindless cooperation.
    Can money buy Blackfeet Tribal Councils?  Will temporary poverty or the promise of money allow permanent damage of the land, Dr. Carol Francis asks?
    Will the Blackfeet Tribal Council allow their amazingly rich soil be destroyed by Fracking? The Blackfeet Reservation in Northern Montana is filled with medicinal plants, endangered animals, and fresh underground rivers. The loss of that land would be tradgic.

    Metalsmith Benchtalk Past Favorites with Kevin Potter

    in Art

    This Thursday, September 17th at 3 p.m. PDT, we'll be going back into the MetalSmith BenchTalk archives. We'll be re-airing one of our favoite chats from 2013 with Kevin Potter of Potter USA, a manufacturer of artistic metalworking tools including hydraulic presses, metalsmithing stakes, and dies.
    Bio: Kevin Potter began as fine jeweler in Tucson, Arizona. He specialized in carving custom waxes and casting but also drew the designs and set stones, essentially designing pieces from start to finish. He eventually worked into having his own line of jewelry that was sold in stores throughout the US. Kevin gained experience using machine tools while attending the University of Arizona, where he received a BFA in drawing/painting.
    He worked in the machine shops on campus and eventually started his own machine shop where he used his tools for the production of stainless steel jewelry. He quickly decided to make silversmithing stakes. He always enjoyed using them in college, but could never afford to purchase them. After he made his first few sets, he advertised them on Craig's list in several cities known as artist communities: Seattle, San Francisco, Austin, etc.
    Kevin always liked Otto Frei jewelry supply and contacted them about his stakes. They liked them and decided to carry his line of stakes. Gradually he began to make other tools and started the Potter USA website with the help of a friend who was a retired computer programer.
