This week's show features stories from Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, NHK World Radio Japan, and Sputnik Radio.
From GERMANY- The annual Earth Hour event to highlight climate change was observed around the world. The solar airplane has reached China on its flight around the world. The Greek Prime Minister says that the country needs a new debt restructuring deal. The US is helping Israel develop a new air defense system. The US has released military aid to Egypt including 12 F16 fighter jets, along with missiles and tanks. A former military leader has become the new president of Nigeria.
From CUBA- In Guerrero state in Mexico teachers clashed with police in protests over the missing 43 students. Venezuela has collected more than 5 million signatures asking President Obama to repeal an executive order declaring the country a security threat. A Viewpoint on the dispute between Argentina and Britain over the Malvinas Islands, also called the Falklands. Argentina is disturbed by the increased militarization of the islands for Britain's remote domination of the South Atlantic and Antarctic regions.
From JAPAN- Only 33 countries have submitted targets for cutting greenhouse gas emissions to the UN by the March 31 deadline. The China led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank now has 51 charter members despite US and Japanese criticism. The interim Prime Minister of Thailand has lifted martial law after 11 months only to replace it with new rules similar to martial law. Iran and 6 world powers continued talks past their deadline and that of this show. Palestine has officially joined the International Criminal Court which will lead to an investigation of Israeli war actions last year.
From RUSSIA- Saudi Arabia and its allies continue to bomb Yemen with numerous civilian deaths. The World Health Organization reported that Monsanto's Round Up herbicide "probably" causes cancer- a lobbyist being interviewed said it was safe to drink but refused when the host offered him some. George Galloway interviewed Sukran Chandan about the life of Malcolm X and his relevance in the era of Obama and Ferguson.

I was interviewed for an informative weekly radio show Mediageek, available at  http://radio.mediageek.net

All that plus times and frequencies for listening at home. It's free to rebroadcast, please notify me if you're airing it and haven't notified me in the last month, please mention the website if you only air a portion. If you just want to listen and have a slow connection, try the streaming version- lower sound quality but good enough and way easier if you don't have a high-speed internet connection. If streaming is a problem because of your slow connection, download the smaller file- it takes 20 minutes or less, and will play swell in any mp3 player application (RealPlayer, Winamp, Quicktime, iTunes, etc) you have on your computer.
TIME SLOT on KZYX! This program will be aired on Sunday afternoon at 4pm (PST) on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via <  http://www.kzyx.org >

I hope you'll listen and air this if you're connected with a radio station. I am still wondering how to get financially compensated for the 25 hours I put into this program weekly- any ideas are appreciated. Any stations rebroadcasting this (or listeners) are welcome to donate for production costs. You can do so through the website. Many thanks to those that have donated! No Guilt! (maybe a little)
