    WOMEN, PROTECTION ORDERS, AND THE REAL COSTS TO VICTIMS


    You’ve experienced violence from your partner, and everyone is telling you to get a protection order. Sounds right. The legal aid representative tells you how to proceed, it might help, and it doesn’t cost anything. Or does it? 


            Two researchers looked at whether getting a protection order had any impact on women’s earnings, and their findings may be a shock. And those findings covered six years of women’s earnings. Free to get a protection order? Think again.


    Melanie M. Hughes and Lisa D. Brush join us to look at their research and what it told them about women’s financial picture after getting a protection order. Hughes is Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Pittsburgh. She uses quantitative approaches to study women’s empowerment, often focusing on groups of women who are particularly marginalized. She is coauthor of Women, Politics, and Power: A Global Perspective (3rd Edition forthcoming with CQ Press). Her research has been published in journals such as American Sociological Review, American Political Science Review, and Social Forces. 


    Brush is Professor of Sociology and of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies at the University of Pittsburgh. Her first book was Gender and Governance (Rowman and Littlefield 2003), and her second book was Poverty, Battered Women, and Work in U.S. Public Policy (Oxford University Press 2011). Her current research looks at preventing adolescent relationship abuse and teen dating violence by engaging high school and middle school boys in coached athletic programs to change masculinities.

    Paige McKay Kubik- The Executive Director of Frazer Center

    in Women

    The Frazer Center is an inclusive community where people at all levels of ability and disability gather, learn and flourish together. 


    This is the backstory of The Frazer Center- The life of a young couple is often the stuff of dreams: the places they may live, the journeys they may take, the children they may have. In 1948, this was the story for one of our founding families, the Lanes.


    Their lives took an unexpected turn, however, when their daughter was born with cerebral palsy. Together with their dear friends the Frazers, the Lanes searched for a program for their daughter. Feeling frustrated and saddened by what they saw, they created the Cerebral Palsy School for six children at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in 1949. Two years later, the Frazers and Lanes were able to acquire the former estate of Cator Woolford (founder of the Retail Credit Company, now Equifax), thirty-nine acres located in the heart of Druid Hills. Renamed REACH in 1989 and The Frazer Center in 1999, our historic mission to offer research-based education, vocational support, and therapeutic intervention to children and adults with developmental disabilities and their families is still the heart of our work today.

    Computer America - Losing The Signal; MHOX

    in Technology

    Computer America


    Hour one: Losing The Signal.  Sean Silcoff, Journalist for the Globe and Mail.


    Losing the Signal is a riveting story of a company that toppled global giants before succumbing to the ruthlessly competitive forces of Silicon Valley. This is not a conventional tale of modern business failure by fraud and greed.


    _______
     


    Hour two: MHOX. Filippo Nassetti, MHOX partner and lead designer, Communication manager.


    MHOX is a product design studio. They work with companies and brands to innovate their products and communication, providing services of industrial design, product communication, research and development. MHOX began as a research group focusing on generative design and 3D printing technologies for the design of innovative wearable products, and evolved into a more general design consultancy. Since 2012 they deliver both disruptive concepts and commercial products for the fashion and medical industry, from masks to prostheses, fashion accessories to orthoses, bracelets to EYEs.  A reflection on the human body, its symbiosis with technology, its evolution in possible futures is central to MHOX work. Wearable products are body extensions, objects or systems that integrate the human body to mutate its aesthetic and functional potential, and this concept is constantly brought to its limit.

    CERN: Recreating the Big Bang or Opening a Portal to Hell

    in Radio

    Have you heard of a company out Switzerland by the name of CERN, and are you aware of what some people are saying this company is attempting to do this September. CERN is a European research organization that operates the largest particle physics laboratory in the world. It also has the largest hadron collider in the world. This hadron collider is 300 feet below ground, and 17 miles long. The purpose of CERN for the last sixty years has been to open up a portal of time space or some might say a black hole. Many are concerned CERN will open a portal that will release demons and aliens. This is a show you don't want to miss because the timing of this event coincides with the end of the Jade Helm 15 military exercise, Pope Francis visit to the US, the Shemitah event, and possibly the crash of the US stock market. September is definitely a month to watch.

    Larry "LAK" Henderson, The Hiphop Educator, is the founder and CEO of Smart Music Entertainment, and the creator of a new sound of educational Hiphop music that uniquely inspires people of all ages. His album, Lesson One: Hip-Hop & Education, has hit Amazon bestsellerlists (#1 in Hot New Releases and #8 in Educational Music), and has received airplay on major radio stations around the world, due to his combination of deep insights and authentic Hiphop sound.

    Lak travels the country sharing his educational Hiphop soul music, offering "lessons" on topics that are rarely discussed, including current events, history, empowerment, political science, money management, and more. CBS calls Lesson One "creative, innovative, and informative." Dominion of New York Magazine says, "Most people who use Hiphop to educate do so badly. Lak does it so well."

    Lak is a youth activist, social critic, history and religion intellectual, and 
    an innovative education advocate. He is a Hiphop ambassador, and a noted speaker on the impact of the Hiphop culture. He holds degrees in Africana Studies, Communications, and Labor Studies from Rutgers University, and studied studio engineering at the Institute for Audio Research.

    Short & Junk: Canon is for Pussies

    in Entertainment

    I realized after the show last night that I didn't quite finish Penumbria's question. So, part 2 of the question:

    Original question



    Penumbria asks: What kind of process do you go through when writing in a new fandom? How do you pick it? What kind of canon research do you do? I know you just started writing Hobbit this year. How do you make that decision? At what point do you usually decide how much of canon you are ignoring and what you want to change, major and minor?


    Also, I think this show dovetails nicely with the show below: 


    Déjà vu: Same Character, Different Reality

  • Quilt of Souls with Phyllistene Lawson

    in History

    Join my special guest Phyllistene Lawson for a discussion of her book Quilt of Souls. Quilt of Souls is a memoir that represents the author's childhood, her loving grandmother, and an old, tattered quilt that tells the untold stories that have long since been hushed. A quilt sewn with the used clothing of her grandmother's loved ones. Each piece of fabric woven into the quilt tells stories of how that person lived and died. Tragic stories of pain and suffering threaded back together with each healing stitch of perseverance and courage.  Grandma Lula Horn (1883-1986) was like many other grandmothers of her era, a pioneer, and a symbol of hope who found alternative ways to soften the horrors of racism and bigotry. 


    Ms. Lawson completed her military career in 2013.  Prior to her completing 20 years of military service, she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.  Ms. Lawson is married with two sons and five Granddaughter’s and currently reside in Florida.
