Re: Alternative Radio: Bill McKibben
We’ve all seen the images of huge icebergs breaking off the Antarctic ice sheets into the ocean. It’s not just polar bears and penguins who are in danger of losing their habitat. Our “pale blue dot” in the universe as Carl Sagan described Earth, is in peril. The top scientists of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change say we have only until 2030 to “avoid catastrophic environmental breakdown.” Young people see their future fraught with risk. And they are stepping up and speaking out. Sixteen-year-old Greta Thunberg of Sweden began a school strike protesting the lack of urgency in addressing climate chaos. Her action caught on and spread all over the world. New groups of climate activists such as, Extinction Rebellion and the Sunrise Movement have arisen. They are demanding radical change in business as usual.

Bill McKibben, a renowned eco-activist, is the Schumann Distinguished Scholar in Environmental Studies at Middlebury College. He is the winner of the Gandhi Prize and the Right Livelihood Award. He is the author of The End of NatureEaarth andFalter. He is co-founder of

Leilani Farha - The Financialization of Housing

Alternative Radio

[AR. Upcoming] Leilani Farha - The Financialization of Housing

From Seattle to Toronto, the cost of owning a home is soaring. Rents are no better. Accelerated by neoliberal economic doctrine a paradigm shift in housing has occurred in recent years. There is a growing disconnect between housing as a human right and housing as a financial vehicle for investment. We’ve come a long way from FDR’s remarkable 1944 State of the Union address where he advocated for, “The right of every family to a decent home.” Today, housing is viewed by the global investor class as a commodity to be bought and sold in markets, a repository for capital and a means of accumulating wealth. Financialization of housing causes gentrification, undermines community, exacerbates inequality and contributes to the disgrace of homelessness. We need to develop and encourage politics that not only restores housing as a universal human right but to make it affordable as well.

Leilani Farha is the special rapporteur on the right to adequate housing appointed by the United Nations Human Rights Council. She was also the executive director of Canada Without Poverty, an NGO based in Ottawa. A human rights lawyer by training, she has worked for many years all over the world on the implementation of economic and social rights.

Mankind's Remedy

From the Shed to Your Head:-Bayou Land gives birth to Rock n' Roll album

Rock 'n Roll born in the Heart of Cajun Country you say? No accordion or washboard with spoons? Correct! Starting in their early teens, Travyn Hargrave (17) and Bennett Price (17), took an interest in the popular Classic Rock songs from the 70's (Hendrix, The Doors, Led Zeppelin...) and the wave of what is now known as Alternative Rock from the 90's (Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Sound Garden...) and started cranking out some songs of their own. Turn the page and a couple years later, someone dropped a bomb in my shed, Mason Dugas (16) and Mankind's Remedy was born.

With the end of their Junior year approaching and the beginning of their Senior year as members of the Kaplan High Band grinding a halt to the trio's jam sessions, we had to act now or never! In comes Justin Tocket of Dockside Studio in Maurice, LA, with 25 years behind the soundboard to accept our appointment for a day at the studio.

On March 17th, 2018 we put in a full 12 hour day and voila! 6 Original and 2 cover tracks were laid down and ready for mixing and mastering! My once steady heart and mind was now awash, in the now distant memory of what was once some pretty good tunes coming out of the shed, to the pure Rock Magic pouring out through the studio speakers. Witnessing the birth of music for the first time was akin to witnessing my sons being born; life changing!

Reeling off of the musically-induced high from that day, more creations began to take form (this time in a Blue Bird School Bus we picked up at an auction, and then insulated and air-conditioned) until they had another batch of potential hits ready to slam down in the pages of history. And so on July 14th, 2018, an additional 7 Original tracks were recorded for mixing (once again at Dockside by Justin Tocket).

Now with 12 mastered tracks prepared by engineer Shelley Anderson (previously with Masterfonics and Georgetown Masters in Nashville, and now with her own studio "Black Lab Mastering" in Louisville, KY) we are releasing our debut album "Faceless" to the public. At present, we released 5 songs from the album as singles; Hey Buddy, Brother, Rust Brain, Ratt, and The Pit, along with the cover song Wolf performed as a solo on the grand piano by Mason Dugas. All 6 are available in all major digital streaming sites in the U.S. as well as overseas.

The album is available through our website and on iTunes, Amazon and Tidal.
