Today on Democracy Now "We Are Not Beginning a New Cold War, We Are Well Into It": Stephen Cohen on Russia-Ukraine Crisis

As negotiations over the crisis in Ukraine begin in Geneva, tension is rising in the Ukrainian east after security forces killed three pro-Russian protesters, wounded 13 and took 63 captive in the city of Mariupol. Ukrainian officials said the pro-Russian separatists had attempted to storm a military base. The killings came just after the unraveling of a Ukrainian operation to retake government buildings from pro-Russian separatists. Earlier today, Russian President Vladimir Putin accused the authorities in Kiev of plunging the country into an "abyss" and refused to rule out sending forces into Ukraine. Meanwhile, NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen has announced a series of steps to reinforce its presence in eastern Europe. "We will have more planes in the air, more ships on the water and more readiness on the land," Rasmussen said. We are joined by Stephen Cohen, professor emeritus of Russian studies and politics at New York University and Princeton University. "We are not at the beginning of a new Cold War, we are well into it," Cohen says, "which alerts us to the fact 'hot war' is imaginable now. It’s unlikely, but it’s conceivable — and if it’s conceivable, something has to be done about it." if you missed this show click on this link http://www.democracynow.org/podcast.xml

Suicide Prevention (rebroadcast)

The next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Friday April 11, is a rebroadcast from October 2013.

Timothy Lineberry, M.D., and J. Michael Bostwick, M.D., joined us to discuss suicide prevention.  There are an estimated one million suicides worldwide each year but there is hope that number can drop if we understand the scope of the problem and how to find help.  What should you do if someone you know is at risk? How can you help teenagers if they are suicidal?  We also talked about resources for loved ones who are left behind after suicide and discussed the drastic increase in the number of military members who are dying from suicide. Please tune in.

Two things we love on the business side of green,entrepreneur ships and electric vehicles .
We have discovered one small start up company in Boston that has come up with a greener and better way to view a lot of the city's major landmarks .
Asaf Magen from Wicked Green tours joined us in this segment of Renewable Now to talk about the small six seater bus he has called a Tuk- Tuk .
The Tuk-Tuk is a nifty little mobile that Asaf describes as a vespa meeting a vw bus .
Asaf is hoping to put a fleet of twenty of these small electric touring units on the roads of Boston . These smaller and more quieter electric vehicles can go on smaller more narrower winding city streets that other vehicles cant fit on . Asaf explains that there were some hurdles in getting this vehicle registered with the state . The difficult registration process was well worth it because they got a taxi permit to start tours in Province town as early as this spring.


We at Renewable Now have been very interested and intrigued by the Earth Policy Institute and the works and ideas of Lester Brown. We took the opportunity to have Jay Matthew Roni stop by and give us some insight of the works and ideals of the Earth Policy Institute.
The Earth Policy Institute (EPI) was founded in 2001 by Lester Brown, the founder and former president of the World watch Institute, to provide a plan of a sustainable future along with a road map of how to get from here to there. EPI works at the global level simply because no country can fully implement a Plan B economy in isolation.

EPI’s goals are (1) to provide a global plan (Plan B) for moving the world onto an environmentally and economically sustainable path, (2) to provide examples demonstrating how the plan would work, and (3) to keep the media, policymakers, academics, environmentalists, and other decision-makers focused on the process of building a Plan B economy.
The Earth Policy Institute influences many business and industries across our vast technological society. This organization is located in the western region of Washington D.C.
Jay Matthew Roni discovered his interest in the environment and economy from reading the works of Lester Brown. Plan A in our environment is doing nothing. Plan B is doing something. We discuss with Jay how the Earth Policy institute researches and works to formulate policy in order to help the world become more sustainable.

This Week on Cardinal Points

Dr. Dale's shares how her Mother's negative experiences with Western allopathic medicine guided her to choose alternative, complimentary treatment for her own cancer as a young adult. This eventually led her to become a Naturopathic Doctor and Certified Clinical Nutritionist. Dr. Dale explains that our intuition will assist us in our healing. "We are responsible for our own healing no one else." She then educates us on the role of hormones and how they play a role in our vitality, energy and overall health. Dr. Dale has designed a safe homeopathic alternative to traditional hormone replacement therapies. She defines PsychoNeuroImmunology (PNI), the emotional connection to illness. Dr. Dale states "our belief system (identities) and thoughts affect our health. Perceptions are fueled by identities. Perceptions create your stress and negative experiences and disease is fueled by identities." In 1986 Dr. Dale was exposed to nuclear radiation from the Chernobyl disaster in Russia and became seriously ill. She cured herself completely using homeopathic medicine. She now passes on her knowledge about healing our bodies from the daily radiation exposure we experience. Dr. Dale informs us about how the overgrowth of Candida  in our bodies is prevalent our culture. This is due to our growth hormone and antibiotic laden food, our over use of prescribed antibiotics and women's intake of birth control pills among other things.

Julianna Ricci, Energy Coach and Healer, shares how her career began as a Marine Scientist and evolved into what it is today. In a nut shell, she says “it is my gift, and my bliss, to guide people, as they become the best of themselves.” She also explains her practice of the ancient Japanese healing energy technique Reiki. We discuss the effects of stress on our bodies. Julianna then talks us through a guided meditation, a practice that allows us to enter into a state of relaxation and inner stillness and a way to manage stress. Our discussion turns to the concept of fear and two books that discuss it, Smile at Fear, Awakening the True Heart of Bravery by Chogyam Trungpa and Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway by Susan Jeffers. Fears can be passed down through physical and social (beliefs) heredity. “You shouldn’t try to cast fear out. Instead use it as kindling to build a big fire of fearlessness.” We agree if you are not experiencing fear you are not growing. The key is to jump into the fear and do it anyway. Even though it is scary you’ll be glad you did.

The Military: What Is It Good For?

Is the military draft a natural expression of democratic values, or a challenge to our most basic concepts of individual rights and liberties? Are the values that make for an effective military consistent with the values that make for a free and democratic republic? If the government must have the power to defend the nation, does it follow that it must have the power to control events around the entire world? John and Ken enlist Pulitzer Prize winning historian David Kennedy in a discussion of the military and its role in public life, recorded live at the Marsh Theater in San Francisco.

Out in the Movies !!!  on film .April 014-2014


Weekend Box Office: 'Captain America 2' ON TOP FOR SECOND WEEK

This is a classic “rank doesn’t matter” story. That Captain America: The Winter Soldier ended up with $41.4 million to top the box office merely meant that it’s performing in line with Marvel sequels, dropping 56% in weekend two. That Rio 2 ended up with $39 million is a little troubling, as the film was noticeably more front loaded (3.25x off a $12m opening day) than the first Rio ($39.2m off a $10.3m opening day, or 3.8x). Still, which of the two films is technically “number 01!” is pretty irrelevant in terms of their individual box office narratives. As I always say, box office isn’t pokerpoker, it’s black jack.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier earned $41.4 million on its second weekend. It’s a good thing the film ended up number one for the weekend, because otherwise it would have magically become a super flop and Captain America 3 would have fled for the safety of a mid-August debut. In all seriousness, the hope was that sterling word-of-mouth and strong reviews would perhaps stem the traditional second weekend bleeding just a bit. But nope, it’s a 56% drop come hell or high water. In terms of weekend drops, 57-60% is the general average among Marvel stand-alone entries outside of Thor (-47%) and Iron Man (-48%), so I guess a 56% drop qualifies as “leggy” by comparison.



Weekend Report: Moviegoers Climb Aboard ‘Noah’s Ark falls to number 6 this week .

Paramount's prayers were answered this weekend, as Darren Anonofsky's controversial Biblical epic Noah opened in first place with a mighty $43.7 million.

Meanwhile, Sabotage's debut was the worst for star Arnold Schwarzenegger in nearly three decades.

At the international box office, Captain America: The Winter Soldier got off to a strong start, while Frozen hit one of its biggest milestones yet.

Noah's $43.7 million debut ranks fourth so far this year behind 300: Rise of An Empire ($45 million). It's a significant improvement over star Russell Crowe's Robin Hood—in fact, it's the highest debut ever for Crowe in leading role. Noah has also already earned more than director Aronofsky's first four movies combined.

Noah received a "C" CinemaScore, which is probably a result of Paramount keeping the stranger fantasy elements out of the marketing campaign. This doesn't necessarily mean the movie is going to fall off quickly: The Wolf of Wall Street is a recent example of a controversial movie that bombed with CinemaScore but held well. At this point, it's safe to say that Noah will earn at least $110 million total.

In its second weekend, Divergent fell 53 percent to $25.6 million. In comparison, The Hunger Games dropped 62 percent at the same point. The young-adult adaptation has now grossed $94.3 million.

Muppets Most Wanted eased 34 percent to $11.3 million. That's actually a better second weekend than 2011's The Muppets ($11.1 million), which opened quite a bit higher. So far, Muppets Most Wanted has stolen away with $33.1 million.

DreamWorks Animation's Mr. Peabody & Sherman dipped 23 percent to $9.1 million. To date, it has earned $94.5 million, and will pass $100 million next weekend.

Faith-based movie God's Not Dead added 398 theaters and was down five percent to $8.8 million. Through 10 days, the surprise hit has earned $21.8 million.

DreamWorks Animation's DWA -1.77% Mr. Peabody and Sherman earned $5.3m million yesterday, bringing its cume to $102m and a not-great $236m worldwide. Warner Bros.’ 300: Rise of an Empire  earned another $1.44m, -66% from last Friday, and brought its cume to $104m. It’s all-but finished domestically, and it’s almost done internationally with a still-solid $324m. Remember, it only cost $110m to produce.  Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel continues to expand successfully, as it earned $6.3m (-26%) for the weekend for a new $33.3m cume and a $87m worldwide total. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Sabotage (which isn’t half bad, by the way) is falling hard and won’t even cross $9m by the end of the weekend after earning $1.9m this weekend.


Review: 300: Rise of an Empire

300: Rise of an Empire one sheet posterIf you’ve seen the 2006 surprise hit 300, you’ve basically seen 300: Rise of an Empire. This time, however, it’s not Greek King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) who is sacrificing everything for Sparta against the evil Persian god-king Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) but Greek battle commander Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) sacrificing everything against, yes, Xerxes and the invading Persians.

300: Rise of an Empire basically takes place concurrently with the original 300 movie, where early in the film they reference Leonidas and then later observe that he was slaughtered, along with Sparta’s 300 finest warriors in the ongoing fight against those pesky Persians. But Sparta is fiercely independent and has no interest in a United Greece, even to being uninterested in joining arms to defend against the Persian hordes.

This time we learn that the gorgeous but evil Artemisia (a tough/sexy Eva Green) is the puppet master behind the transformation of mortal turned God Xerxes and it’s she who leads the massive Persian army against the Greeks, to defeat after defeat. Turns out she’s got the numbers but wily Greek Themistokles has her beat on strategy and tactics. Bummer.

  Ukraine asks for UN peacekeepers in restive east

HORLIVKA, Ukraine (AP) -- Ukraine's acting president urged the United Nations on Monday to send peacekeeping troops to eastern Ukraine, where pro-Russian gunmen kept up their rampage of storming and occupying local government offices, police stations and a small airport.

The request came from a government that has proved powerless to rein in separatists in its eastern and southern regions, where insurgents have seized or barricaded government buildings in at least nine cities, demanding more autonomy from the new government in Kiev and closer ties with Russia.

The Kiev government and Western officials accuse Russia of instigating the unrest and of deploying armed Russian agents in civilian clothing to carry them out.

In a telephone call with Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon, acting President Oleksandr Turchynov suggested that an "anti-terrorist operation" be conducted jointly by Ukrainian security forces and U.N. peacekeepers, according to the presidential website.

Peacekeepers, however, would have to be authorized by the U.N. Security Council, where Russia holds a veto.

Turchynov's deadline for insurgents to give up their weapons and vacate their homemade barricades passed Monday without any visible action - instead, the violence continued. A pro-Russian mob stormed a Ukrainian police station in Horlivka, another city near the Russian border. Later in the day, armed men in masks also seized control of a small airport outside the city of Slovyansk, also in the Donetsk region bordering Russia.

"The Russian Federation is sending special units to the east of our country, which seize administrative buildings with the use of weapons and are putting the lives of hundreds of thousands of our citizens in danger," Turchynov said, according to the presidential web-site.

U.S. Is Considering Sending Arms To Ukraine: Official

BERLIN, April 14 (Reuters) - The United States is considering supplying arms to Ukraine, where unrest in eastern cities bears the hallmarks of a Russian destabilization drive, an adviser to Secretary of State John Kerry said on Monday.

Ukraine's president on Monday threatened military action after pro-Russian separatists occupying government buildings in the east ignored an ultimatum to leave and another group of rebels attacked a police headquarters in the troubled region.

Asked during a trip to Berlin whether the United States could arm Ukrainian forces, senior diplomat Thomas Shannon said: "Obviously we are looking at that as an option ... but at this point I can't anticipate whether or not we are going to do that."

Republican Senator John McCain has suggested providing weapons to the Ukraine government, which says the occupations that began on Sunday are part of a Russian-led plan to dismember the country.

GOP Quietly Mapping a Path to Senate Control

Capital Journal: As part of their goal to recapture control of the Senate, Republican leaders have been using quiet diplomacy to reduce the chances the party's tea-party wing will crown primary candidates who can be easily portrayed as odd or extremist, writes Gerald F. Seib.

Scores Killed in Nigerian Blast

A rush-hour bombing on the outskirts of Abuja killed at least 71 people, an attack that is likely to raise fresh concerns about security in the Nigerian capital ahead of a meeting of international business leaders and politicians.

Wal-Mart Fights Back in China

Wal-Mart has paid fines and ratcheted up its testing and inspections, but it is also doing something rare: telling Chinese authorities they need to clean up their own act.

ATTLEBORO - The financial fallout of war is hitting home as more and more cash-strapped veterans seek help from the city.

Mayor Kevin Dumas has asked the city council for $128,500, or a 20 percent boost in the $640,000 budgetbudget for veterans aid this year, as former soldiers, now retired and mostly from the Vietnam era, flood City Hall.

It's the second year in a row Dumas has sought significant cash for veterans.

Last year the amount was $120,000.

Of the $128,500, some $8,500 is coming from a transfer of cash within the veterans department, while $120,000 is coming from the city's surplus account.

As a result, the city will have only about $24,000 in reserve cash for the rest of the fiscal year that ends on June 30.

Attleboro wins $300,000 grant to design last link in downtown riverside path

Mon Apr 14, 2014.


ATTLEBORO — Those who enjoy the soothing sounds of a running river will one day be able to walk the banks of Ten Mile River as it winds through the center of the city from Olive Street all the way to Larson Woodland near Willett School.

The city’s department of planning and development won a $300,000 state grant from the Gateway City Parks program to design the last link in the greenway/blueway chain between County and Wall streets in the heart of the downtown revitalization area, said Gary Ayrassian, the city’s director of planning and development.

Construction of the path aims to enhance downtown by exposing the river for passive and active recreation, he said.

“This is yet another exciting project intended to improve the vitality of our downtown, promote a walkable central business district, promote the river and access to this environmental gem and compliment the myriad of other public and private improvements currently underway in the urban core,” Ayrassian said in a letter to Mayor Kevin Dumas.

The riverside path between Wall and County streets will connect to Balfour Riverwalk Park on the north side of County, which connects to a path leading to Larson Woodland along Riverbank Road.

Links in the walk will be tied together by decorative structures marking entrances to the paths.

Meanwhile, construction on the $3.96 million southern link, a riverside park and road stretching between Olive and Wall streets is scheduled to begin this summer and will create almost a half-mile riverside walk leading to the Wall to County link.

Proposed North Attleboro bylaw concerning abandoned buildings to be tweaked

NORTH ATTLEBORO - A proposal that would require owners of vacant and abandoned buildings to registerregister with the town will undergo some fine-tuning before being submitted to June's special town meeting.

Selectmen held a public hearing last week on the proposal to require property owners to register with Building Inspector Rod Palmer's office within 14 days of a foreclosureforeclosure or if a property is vacant for at least 60 days.

Palmer drafted the bylaw at the request of selectmen, who set a goal last year of looking at ways to address problems associated with abandoned buildings. He is now putting together a final draft.

"Essentially what we're trying to do here is really ensure the safety and security of those buildings," Selectman Mark Williamson said. "Many surrounding towns have a similar type of bylaw."

Williamson said another advantage of having the registry is it provides Palmer with an opportunity to start talking with building owners about what they intend to do with vacant properties.

Property owners would be required to secure their properties and maintain sprinkler and fire alarm systemsalarm systems.

"My intent is not to have these property owners mow their lawns, trim their bushes or paint their houses. It's not the intent to make people maintain their properties so they look nice, it's to make them safe," Palmer said.

As it stands now, Palmer said he often hears about foreclosed or vacant buildings from neighbors who file complaints with the town.

"I've seen a number of them for residential properties. Some of these had in-ground swimming pools that were completely open without safeguarding of the pool whatsoever," Palmer said.

A registry "would be a great tool for knowing what's abandoned, so we can make it safe for neighbors within that neighborhood," he said.

Selectman John Rhyno questions what kind of exemptions would be made, especially for relatives of a homeowner who died because properties can be tied up in probate court for months or years.

"If there's a property in probate, then those properties should be registered for us. There's no fee or fine if it's left vacant," Palmer said.

Owners who have seasonal vacancies, such as "snowbirds" who travel to Florida each winter, would not be required to registerregister.

While the bylaw indicates selectmen can set a fine for people who fail to registerregister or secure their properties, the amount has not yet been established.

"Without a fine, we can't have a regulation. Without a fine, it's not a regulation, it's a suggestion," Palmer said.

Word Of the day ..

    audio pronunciation


: one that serves as an inspiration, model, or guide


When she started her own business, Melinda used her father's motto—"Trust your instincts"—as her lodestar.

"For a generation of computer programmers, astrophysicists and other scientists, Mr. Munroe and his online comic, xkcd, have been lodestars." — From an article by Noam Cohen in The New York Times, March 17, 2014


The literal, albeit archaic, meaning of "lodestar" is "a star that leads or guides" and it is a term that has been used especially in reference to the North Star. (The first half of the word derives from the Middle English word "lode," meaning "course.") Both the literal and the figurative sense ("an inspiration or guide") date back to the 14th century, the time of Geoffrey Chaucer. The literal sense fell out of use in the 17th century, and so, for a while, did the figurative sense—but it appeared again 170 years later, when Sir Walter Scott used it in his 1813 poem The Bridal of Triermain.
