    Global Voices [#518] Chahinaz: What Rights for Women? Chahinaz, a 20-year-old student in Algeria, has mixed feelings about the Western world and its values, but she admires the freedom of Western women. Through her curiosity and voyage of self-discovery, Chahinaz begins to wonder what life is like for women in other Muslim countries and around the world and why things are slow to change in Algeria. duration 54:27   STEREO

    Half The Sky [#101] Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide This 4-hour documentary was filmed in 10 countries and follows Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn (authors of the book by the same name), and celebrity activists America Ferrera, Diane Lane, Eva Mendes, Meg Ryan, Gabrielle Union, and Olivia Wilde on a journey to tell the stories of inspiring, courageous individuals. Across the globe oppression is being confronted, and real meaningful solutions are being fashioned through health care, education, and economic empowerment for women and girls. The linked problems of sex trafficking and forced prostitution, gender-based violence, and maternal mortality - which needlessly claim one woman every 90 seconds - present to us the single most vital opportunity of our time: the opportunity to make a change. All over the world women are seizing this opportunity. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TVM (Secondary audio: none)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1729] THE CONTRACEPTION MANDATE - On Tuesday, The Supreme Court hears arguments in the deeply divisive "Hobby Lobby" case. The religious owners of the craft chain, and other plaintiffs, say the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, violates their religious freedom by requiring them to buy certain kinds of contraception insurance for their employees. The government says it has a "compelling interest" in requiring such coverage. Tim O'Brien summarizes the arguments and discusses the case's implications. What limits should there be, if any, on persons, including owners of corporations, claiming a religious exemption from Federal law?
    WOMEN LEADING THE OBSERVANCE OF PURIM - The Jewish celebration of Purim - reading aloud the complex and heroic account in the Book of Esther of Esther's willingness to risk her life to save ancient Jews from annihilation by the King of Persia. Traditionally, among Orthodox Jews, the story was read aloud by men, but now Orthodox women are leading Purim services, too. Kim Lawton tells the story.
    "THE STORY OF THE JEWS" - In a 5-part series beginning on PBS stations next week, noted historian Simon Schama explores 3000 years of Jewish history. What sustained Jews through anti-Semitism and persecution? In the TV series and in a companion book also entitled "The Story of the Jews" Schama says, "The problem of the Jews was that they were a nation without a home."

    Nature [#2610H] Frogs: The Thin Green Line It is the greatest mass extinction since the dinosaurs. Population by population, species by species, amphibians are vanishing off the face of the Earth. Despite international alarm and scientists scrambling for answers, the steady hemorrhaging of amphibians continues like a leaky faucet that cannot be fixed or a wound that will not heal. Large-scale die-offs of frogs around the world have prompted scientists to take desperate measures to try to save those they can. duration 55:16   SRND51 TVPG

    The Cardboard Bernini Olympia Stone's documentary examines the work and life of artist James Grashow as he builds a giant cardboard fountain inspired by the work of the famous baroque sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini. James Grashow is an artist who has built-among many other things - giant 15 foot tall fighting men, a city, and an ocean - using paper mache, fabric, chicken wire and cardboard. More recently, he has begun making sculptures entirely out of corrugated cardboard and twist ties. Several years ago, while visiting the home of his art dealer, Allan Stone (who was the filmmaker's father), he stumbled across some of his giant fighting men that had been put outside due to lack of space. They were disintegrating. Although it was deeply painful and shocking for Jimmy to see his work like that, it was also surprisingly beautiful. Jimmy felt that he was seeing the full arc of his artistic enterprise before him - including its end. So, Grashow challenged himself to embrace the "back end" of his process, and decided to build a giant cardboard "fountain" - a Grashow "Bernini."
    From its conception, Jimmy intended this work to be put outside to disintegrate. Work on the fountain began in 2007 and was completed in 2010. Jimmy's "corrugated fountain" premiered indoors on June 11, 2010 at the Taubman Museum of Art in Roanoke, Virginia, to great acclaim. After shows in New York City and Pittsburgh, Jimmy finally installed the fountain outdoors at the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art in Ridgefield, CT on April 1, 2012. It was there for a total of six weeks, after which time Jimmy took his degraded cardboard masterpiece to the dumpster: "Ashes to ashes, mush to mush."
    The film is an intimate glimpse of an artist at work on what he considers might be his "final epic." We follow Jimmy as he asks what is the point of art and creation? What is the connection between creation and destruction? And, ultimately, what is the point of our lives in the face of our mortality?

    Global Voices [#409] Belarusian Waltz Belarus has been called "Europe's last dictatorship." Since 1994, Alexander Lukashenko has ruled the ex-Soviet republic with a despotic hand, jailing the opposition, shutting down the press, and refusing to investigate the assassinations of dissidents. He has virtually silenced his critics - but not one lone performance artist who stages public stunts mocking the dictator's pretensions. Belarusian Waltz is the story of Alexander Pushkin, whose audacious, comical exploits find him facing the hostility of the police and the consternation of his family. An offbeat tale of post-modern street theater meeting 1930s-style authoritarianism, the film offers a surprising window into the soul of the Belarusian people. duration 53:30   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
