This week's show features stories from Radio Deutsche-Welle, Sputnik Radio, NHK World Radio Japan, and Radio Havana Cuba.
From GERMANY- A Japanese electronics firm has set up test energy systems using solar panels and hydrogen fuel cells. There is much back and forth on the planned restart of nuclear power plants in Japan. Leaders from more than 80 Asian and African countries are calling for a new world order to fight poverty and economic disparity.
From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviews Noam Chomsky on the bombing of Yemen, targeted assassinations, the praise given Obama for new relations with Cuba and Iran, and the disaster of neo-liberalism.
From JAPAN- In Germany alone, there were more than 200 demonstrations against the proposed Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, or TTIP. The WHO says that the sudden, horrible deaths of 18 in Nigeria was not the result of a new disease, but poisoning by pesticides. Iranian President Rohani criticized Saudi led airstrikes in Yemen, Yemeni civilians are having their homes bombed, Obama warned Iran against shipping weapons to Houthi rebels in Yemen, and the rebels demanded a complete ceasefire which did not happen. As of press time, EU leaders were meeting to create a plan to prevent migrants drowning in the Mediterranean- 2000 have died so far this year. The US accused Russia of building up forces along the Ukrainian border. The European Commission accused Russian oil giant Gazprom of monopoly tactics in central and Eastern Europe.
From CUBA- Rigoberto Menchu will make addresses in Washington DC in support of Ecuador's fight with Chevron Oil Company. The Bank of the South will begin operations in May. Then a Viewpoint on the recent Summit of the Americas held in Panama.

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)
