Being the first African American president is a success in itself, some may say. But what about the economy? Foreign policy? Social justice? In your opinion, has President Obama made things better? Or are we worse off than before? Why do you think this way

Fordham University Professor Zephyr Teachout, recent Democratic Gubernatorial Primary challenger to incumbent Governor Andrew Cuomo, and recently published author of “Corruption In America”, joins the program at 11:30 until its conclusion at 12 Noon. We will delve into to why public financing of elections is a feminist issue; reveal the example of “corruption” of Benjamin Franklin by Louis XVI when Franklin was presented with a diamond encrusted snuff box with an inset of the King’s portrait; reflect over the two centuries during which corruption flourished in the courts while the absence of clear rules governed. It was said to be a time when the voters, civil officers, and election officials were said to have corrupted 50 percent of elected officials, at minimum. When does an implicit promise count as bribery? Learn of Zephyr Teachout’s interest in reducing political corruption – and learn how and if it can come about?

Coffee Talks with Becky Jensen & Jay D Alexander on the topic of the
U.S. Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) for Green Jobs Creation
This week we’re calling on a few good friends to take up the President’s challenge to be My Brother’s Keeper. We’ve been looking for ways to sustain community building efforts and reverse what the president termed, a “gulf of mistrust.” ARE YOU READY? That’s the question for political candidates and emerging leaders as voters move toward the polls and closer to America’s Transformation.

This World Footprints show will journey to the Grenadines and unlock the mysteries of the sea in a way few seldom see or experience.
Our first stop takes us to Bequia (pronounced Beck-way), the largest of the Grenadines. Fresh from a dive at Devils Table with her dive buddy Cathy Sachs of Dive Bequia, Tonya and Cathy will recount their dive and why Bequia offers an unusual diving experience. Cathy will also share how this island has changed her life.
Then we’ll visit Bequia’s Park Bay, home to the Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary, where a native retired skin-diving fisherman affectionately known as “Brother King”, has spent more than a decade of his life to helping to conserve the endangered hawksbill turtle. Brother King and his helpers monitor the beaches and nests here to protect mother turtles from poachers. They also care for the baby hatchlings in the sanctuary during the turtles’ vulnerable years of life.
Many of the hatchlings are released into a protective area just south of Bequia called Tobago Cays—our next stop. Lesroy Noel is the Park Ranger for the Tobago Cays Marine Park which lies in the southern Grenadines. The area comprises of five isles bordered by a giant horseshoe reef and teems with wildlife and wild sea turtles. Few places on earth can match the unblemished natural beauty, tranquil waters and their ever-changing kaleidoscope of blues, greens and aquamarines.
