Organic Eating (Episode #405)

KQED Plus: Sat, May 23, 2015 -- 1:30 PM

This episode of Equal Time examines whether organic eating is actually healthier, or whether all that matters is the nutritional value of food. A struggle people often cite when considering the organic lifestyle is the cost. Equal Time correspondent Kato Guzman interviews people from both sides of the spectrum: those who are careful to avoid anything artificial, and those who are fearless about additives. Guests include: Marjorie Freedman/ Associate Professor, Nutrition, Food Science and Packaging; Erick Chong Marquez SJSU Graduate Student

Lick Observatory: Silicon Valley's science inspiration (Episode #404)

KQED Plus: Sat, May 16, 2015 -- 1:30 PM

Correspondent Brenda Norrie leads a discussion about the need to keep this Bay Area icon open. Google just donated $1million, and questions arise as to why this is important, especially in a time where American youth tends to focus on the arts and entertainment rather than the math and sciences as compared to the Space Age. Lick Observatory has been part of the Bay Area's history, so with a plethora of newcomers coming in, it's important to remember why San Jose came to be. The observatory has made significant astronomical discoveries, such as several moons of Jupiter, extrasolar planets, and even multiple planet systems. Education experts: Alex Filippenko, UC Berkeley Astrophysicist and Aaron Romanowsky, physics and astronomy professor at SJSU.

Gun Restrictions: Friend Or Foe (Episode #403)

KQED Plus: Sat, May 9, 2015 -- 1:30 PM

The second amendment gives citizens the right to own a firearm. Correspondent Rebecca Lapena discusses the pros and cons of gun education. The term "gun education" implies that citizens should have the option to be correctly educated on why, when, and how to safely use a gun. This episode of Equal Time takes us to the firing range, and also introduces us to the relative of a gun shot victim. Guest Community leaders: Joe Green, Correctional Officer and Michael Barnes, University Police Department Officer.
