    Global Voices [#527] Education Education What does an education get you? In ancient times in China, education was the only way out of poverty, in recent times it has been the best way. China's economic boom and talk of the merits of hard work have created an expectation that to study is to escape poverty. But these days China's higher education system only leads to jobs for a few, educating a new generation to unemployment and despair. duration 56:46   STEREO

    Focus On Europe [#3118] Unwelcome Species Invading Europe Europe has become home to over 10,000 new animal and plant species. But they're not being welcomed everywhere, because they often endanger the habitat of native species. In northern Germany, for example, the nandu - a huge, flightless bird native to South America - is growing in numbers. The details:
    TURKEY: SOLDIERS BREAK THEIR SILENCE - Violent conduct within the Turkish military was long considered a taboo subject. Soldiers had to appear hardened; they were, after all, doing battle against the Kurdish PKK. But now the military leadership is facing serious accusations. More than 900 Turkish soldiers have committed suicide over the past 10 years. Citing eyewitness accounts, a soldiers' rights group says one reason for the high rate is abuse within the ranks. The organization says over 1,000 soldiers have reported beatings and humiliation. Now a growing number of families of suicide victims are taking the issue to court.
    BRITAIN: SECOND HOMELAND OF THE POLES - Since the European Union's eastward expansion in 2004, Britain has been the primary destination for job-seekers from Poland. In future, however, immigrants from the EU may find it more difficult to settle in the country. British diners are now used to Polish waiters, and many home owners have employed Polish plumbers. But the immigrants are not well-integrated. They live in Polish neighborhoods, attend Polish churches, and eat imported Polish food. It came as little surprise when a recent study showed that Polish is the most widely spoken language in Britain after English.
    ROMANIA: COSTLY EXODUS - During the Cold War the West German government paid for some 230,000 ethnic Germans to be allowed to leave communist Romania. Only now is the scope of those payments coming to light. The government in Bonn transferred millions in hard currency to Romania's notorious secret police, the Securitate. These payments were in addition to the billions agreed with the Ceausescu regime. A former negotiator with the West German government provides an insider's account of the clandestine talks.
    GERMANY: UNWELCOME GUESTS - More and more new plant and animal species are spreading across Europe. Many enter the region via freight shipments or by tourists. Among them are a population of nandus that have settled in northern Germany. More than 10 years ago, six nandus escaped from a private farm. Today their number has grown to 120. The huge, flightless birds have adapted well to northern Germany's environment. But farmers and hunters don't like them. Top of their preferred menu - entire fields of young corn plants.

    Pacific Heartbeat [#204] Hula: The Language of the Heart The Merrie Monarch Hula Festival, often referred to as the "Olympics of Hula," is a four day competition and exhibition that showcases the elegance, power, and rich storytelling that this ancient art form beholds. This program, which highlights the 2012 festival winners, will present an entertaining yet thought-provoking look at hula's role in the past, present, and future of Hawai'i's people. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Saving The Ocean [#106H] River of Kings, Part 1 For millennia, the Nisqually Indians relied on Chinook salmon caught in the Nisqually River. Now the river's wild Chinook are extinct, and the tribe runs a hatchery to keep their fishery going. But an unusual coalition of tribal leaders, private partners and government agencies is working to restore the river from top to bottom, from its source in the glaciers of Mount Rainier to the estuary that empties into Puget Sound. Led by the Nisqually tribe, the restoration aims to fill the river once again with abundant, magnificent wild salmon. In the restoration, urban rain gardens filter runoff and augment river flow, new logjams deepen and cool its waters and farms returned to marshland provide new places for young salmon to shelter and grow. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Nature [#3009H] What Plants Talk About This program integrates hard-core science with a light-hearted look at how plants behave, revealing a world where plants are as busy, responsive and complex as we are. From the stunning heights of the Great Basin Desert to the lush coastal rainforests of west coast Canada, scientist J.C. Cahill takes us on a journey into the "secret world of plants," revealing an astonishing landscape where plants eavesdrop on each other, talk to their allies, call in insect mercenaries and nurture their young. It is a world of pulsing activity, where plants communicate, co-operate and sometimes, wage all-out war. duration 55:16   SRND51 TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

      (DT54.1 thru 54.5) Assuming that the weather and road conditions permit, we plan to do a bit of maintenance on our KQEH transmitter the morning of Friday 12/05… hopefully 10am-11am-ish, but could be a bit later. Most of the work should not affect the outgoing signal, but there will need to be a cable swap […]

    • 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. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
