Malaria is a growing problem in the Kenyan highlands. Because the nights are getting warmer and rain more frequent, mosquitoes that carry the disease are multiplying rapidly.

Richard Kimani is an entrepreneur who got his start as a distributor of mineral water. Meanwhile, he has also become a successful juice producer who has nearly 360 Kenyan farmers under contract. Much of their mango harvest used to rot and go to waste - but now Kimani turns their fruit into juicy profits.

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion.
