    Skit: "Communal Work for the Residents on Earth"

    in Education

    The Skit: "Communal Work for the Residents on Earth"depicts the urgent need to clean up our residential planet called earth.  Despite its need to clean up, many of us are indifferent to the communal clean up work because of our over-focus on cultural activities and do not care about the issues leading to life or death situations.  Even though Niger Delter is said to cause global scale green house effects and climate change, still no clean up is done.  You can read the script here.

    What's really going on in Flint?

    in Music

    What can be done in Flint? Are we willing to offer more than “prayers and positive energy”?  It is time to demand accountability. Transparency is always helpful. Millions of gallons of water are coming in to the city.


     “We need distribution and every family needs different things.”


                                                    --Lady Khadeejah


    The city needs a fix.  A real fix, is replacing the water infrastructure. What else is in the water?  No one has addressed the real issue. Call for accountability can help with that. People following up with the agencies they donate to can help that. Your voice is worth more than any money can buy right now.  Tonight, we talk with a resident who says it’s time we started asking the right questions. Use your voice.

    Justice Department Sues Ferguson

    in Politics

    The Department of Justice filed a 56-page lawsuit against the city of Ferguson on Wednesday afternoon, citing "a pattern or practice of conduct that deprives persons of rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States."


    “The residents of Ferguson have waited nearly a year for their city to adopt an agreement that would protect their rights and keep them safe," Lynch said in a prepared statement. "They have waited nearly a year for their police department to accept rules that would ensure their constitutional rights and that thousands of other police departments follow every day.  They have waited nearly a year for their municipal courts to commit to basic, reasonable rules and standards.  But residents of Ferguson have suffered the deprivation of their constitutional rights – the rights guaranteed to all Americans – for decades.  They have waited decades for justice.  They should not be forced to wait any longer.”Attorney General Loretta Lynch ST Louis Post Dispatch

    New Hampshire Business as Usual or Not

    in Politics

    The Democratic Party, once buttressed by mill workers in eastern and central towns, has expanded its reach all over the state, but particularly in those same southern counties and along the western edge of the state, near Vermont.Suburbs and exurbs that had spotted the countryside now form unbroken furrows across the southern part of the state; the old mills of Manchester and other towns now house tech firms and universities.
    Pushing the change have been the tidal surges that reshape politics in many places: Older residents(Clinton'voters), mostly conservative, are dying off; younger and more liberal residents have moved in.  Only 45% of New Hampshire residents were born here, a lower percentage than in all but five states.

    Feb. 9, 2016, 10pm (PST) - The Ghosts of Virginia City with Debbie Bender

    in Paranormal

    Virginia City was a boomtown with the 1859 discovery of the Comstock Lode, the first major silver deposit discovery in the United States, and numerous mines were opened. At the city's peak of population in the mid-1870s, it had an estimated 25,000 residents. The mines' output declined after 1878, and the city declined.


     


    However, many in the now historic town say, some of the residents have never left. And as this ghost town has become more of a tourist attraction, one of the attractions the town now offers is ghost tours. Paranormal investigators from all over the world come to the Nevada playground to find who's still hanging out in the saloon or sleeping in the old hotel.


     


    Debbie Bender is part of the team that runs the Virginia City Ghost Tours. The stories and experiences she has from this old mining community are eerie, intriguing and mystifying all at once. You can find them at www.virginiacityghosttours.com. Debi will explain the history of the town from then, until now. We'll talk about who's still wandering around. And how ghost hunting has brought new 'life' to an aged community.
