    Sea Level Rise 2.0...Exploring Financial Tools For Adaptation

    in Environment

    Reports of scientific studies and local government initiatives to deal with the challenge of swelling oceans fill the internet and traditional media daily. Technical experts dealing with sea level rise are hard at work in South Florida, California, the Carolinas, New York, Virginia and other vulnerable areas the world over.


    But responsible action on sea level rise issues requires another dimension of planning, for which we have just begun.


    Wall Street has a role to play too, as does your local bank and credit union. You have a personal financial role as well.


    Monetary and budgeting strategies to cope with sea level rise, for the average homeowner, renter and small business owner need to be crafted today...to be ready for tomorrow.


    In this episode, we explore some proposed tools and blueprints that financial institutions, consumers and governments should consider to properly plan for the near-term.


    Failure to adapt your financial roadmap today will result in missed options tomorrow. 


    Here we cover the comments of Dr. Leonard Berry Director of the Florida Center For Environmental Studies at Florida Atlantic University and South Florida Attorney and sea level rise advocate Mitch Chester on this vital aspect of preparing for rising seas.

    Film Re-Adaptation of Nosferatu now a Kickstarter Project

    in Pop Culture

    What do vampires, Doug Jones, black-and-white cinema, and modern green screen technology all have in common? The answer is Nosferatu - a new visual remix of the classic German expressionist 1922 black-and-white silent horror film.  


    The idea is to bring this classic horror film back to life and with a unique feel to show to a modern audience while still honoring the masters of old. Writer and director David Lee Fisher has garnered a team of creative individuals who are all collaborating to recreate the 1922 film in a rather unique way.


    Nosferatu is on KickStarter at thevampirelives.com with a goal to raise $60,000 by December 3rd.     


    Doug Jones, famed actor best known for his work as Abe Sapien in the Hellboy films, El Fauno and the Pale Man in Pan's Labyrinth, Billy Butcherson in Hocus Pocus, and the Silver Surfer in Rise Of The Silver Surfer, has been cast to portray the menacing Count Orlok. His makeup has been created by Mike Elizalde of Spectral Motion Studios.

    Scottscope Talk Radio 2/21/2015: Are You Ready for The Kingsman?

    in Entertainment

    On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, we’ll be reviewing Kingsman: The Secret Service!  Is it faithful to the comic book on which it’s based?  Could it possibly be better?  Is it an effective homage/parody of classic British spy films?  Is director Matthew Vaughn the most thematically consistent director currently adapting comic books for the big screen?  Is he an unsung hero of the form?  Does the film provide a viable alternative to the considerably darker world of Daniel Craig’s James Bond?  Does it set a high bar for the rest of this year’s upcoming action/adventure films?  Does it merit comparison with other such hybrid comedies like Men In Black?  What might further adventures of the Kingsman have in store?

    DISPATCHES FROM WEIMAR AMERICA

    in Politics

    Taken with gratitude from Unwelcome Guests #703  We begin with the soundtrack of a short RT interview of Mark Crispin Miller about Project Censored's "forbidden bookshelf" project of republishing in electronic form books which the authorities have tried to suppress. He introduces his the first 5 books, starting with Douglas Valentine's The Phoenix Program: America’s Use of Terror in Vietnam, echoing ideas from episode 693. Our next piece is an interview of Professor Alfred McCoy by Jeff Blankfort. McCoy explains the extent of the surveillance systems currently underway, which far exceeds the Snowden disclosures. Our second hour concludes with a short interview of Naomi Wolf, author of The End of America, who slightly softens her skepticism of Snowden's whistleblower status. However, Wolf reminds us that there has been minimal independent verification of his story, and the commercially-controlled media of western 'democracies' continues to trumpet his 'revelations', ... Next we hear a panel discussion of Heidi Boghosian, the author of "Spying on Democracy", followed by a customarily outspoken Chris Hedges who provides a personal reflection on the psychology of the super-rich, drawing from his experience as a student from a lower working class background who attended a school for the upper class. To underline the implications of Hedges' discussion of an unaccountable and amoral power, we present a radio adaptation of "The Strange Case of Phillip Marshall", a video broadcast on PressTV, f ... We conclude this week with a historical parallel from Heidi Boghosian, who notes that public outrage about mass surveillance was sufficient to force the US executive to desist ... but not permanently. Thanks to TUC Radio for the Alfred McCoy interview.
