You know how I occasionally call for suggestions about people you know who have done something interesting? This is the sort of thing I'm talking about.
By the way, the Gang Strike Force "in the news page" hasn't been updated in a couple of weeks.
WHAT WE'RE DOING
I'm doing this. Don't let me down here.
Midmorning - The Hauser case in the first hour with medical ethicist Art Caplan and Teresa Nelson of the ACLU. That should be hot. Second hour: The new credit card rules.
Midday - A preview of the Minnesota History Center's "Greatest Generation" exhibit. I've been looking forward to this for more than a year. On Saturday, by the way, there's a sing-along with Prudence Johnson and Dan Chouinard.
Second hour: Former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan's speech at Macalester earlier this week.
Talk of the Nation - It's Science Friday. An update on the Mars rover and a talk on the unexpected benefits of gardening with native plants. Plus, a look at how food shortages could leave modern civilization in shambles. Keep smiling!
All Things Considered - Ambar Espinoza looks at the tribal-run Nay-ah-Shing school at Mille Lacs, which teaches students Native drumming and wild rice harvesting, and at two newer charter schools that teach Ojibwe language and culture. NPR will have a story on the Flying Fish brewery, which is developing a beer to honor every exit on the New Jersey turnpike. But why wait?
if you're looking for a compelling story of similar taste, i'd enjoy 'lending' you some information ...
religion, athletics, obsession, anxiety / depression, and how academia (and counseling) saved my life ... it's true, i swear. i know, i know ... you're thinking, 'yeah, academia (and counseling) saved your life because it turned you into a raging run-of-the-mill college aged know-it-all i'm so cool 'cause i'm finally away from mom and dad for the first time even though they still pay all your bills type of '. however, such is not the case! in fact, if i could do it all over again, i'd excuse the student body, save for the hockey team, and hang only with them, my profs ... and my counselor.
let's yuck it up ...
