    Forum Debating Gun Control After Newtown In a speech at a memorial in Newtown, Connecticut on Sunday, President Obama vowed to use the power of his office to prevent future mass killings. But he stopped short of mentioning any specific proposals. Gun control advocates, including California Senator Dianne Feinstein -- who has said she will push for a new assault weapons ban -- are calling on the president to act. But supporters of gun rights say that new laws are not the answer, pointing out that Connecticut already had tough firearm regulations.

    It's Your World (a broadcast of the World Affairs Council) Ending the Hunger Cycle in Africa The idea of a "hungry farmer" should be an oxymoron. However among smallholder farmers in Africa for whom agricultural practices have not changed since the 1930's, most do not produce enough to feed their families. Consequently every year they face what in Kenya is known as the wanjala -- the hunger season -- between when food from the previous harvest has run out and the next one is ready. Join Roger Thurow for an exploration of the year he spent following four farming families in Western Kenya as they tried to dramatically change their farming techniques in an attempt to increase their harvest, and the challenges facing individual farmers striving to increase food production, as well as the macro-problems facing our global food supply chain. Roger Thurow is Fellow for Global Agriculture and Food Policy with the Chicago Council on Global Affairs.
