    Hapa: One Step at a Time Race remains a powerful symbol in the US; it still is a shorthand notation for most Americans. This program speaks to how individuals of Asian and Pacific Islander descent are embracing their ethnic experiences as a symbol of change in an ever-evolving multicultural society. It is a thought-provoking exploration of what it means to be a mixed-race American today. The program is a first-person treatment of the struggles people of diverse cultural backgrounds and perspectives face. "Hapa" comes from the Hawaiian phrase hapa haole, which means half white/foreigner. Once considered a derogatory term, Hapa has come to be accepted as a way to describe a person of partial Asian ancestry. By Japanese American Midori Sperandeo, who provides a personal narrative about her evolution from a novice runner into a national class marathoner andshares the parallel path of her personal growth in searching for her racial identity. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Survival: Lives in the Balance [#103] The Plant That Cures Malaria (Uganda) Malaria threatens half of the world's population. Malaria killed Clovis's young daughter. Clovis learned too late that, if caught early, a three-day course of drugs easily cures malaria. The drug is called Coartem. The main ingredient is Arteminisin, a chemical extracted from the Artemisia plant. The drug is expensive. Most developing countries cannot afford to buy enough to meet the needs of their people. Clovis discovered he can easily grow Artemisia on his farm in Uganda. He has invested much of his family's resources into farming the plant. He's created a community of small farmers that can produce enough Artemisia to sell it in bulk to a processing company. A new company policy, however, may stand in the way of income for this cooperative of farmers. duration 50:30   STEREO TVPG

    Survival: Lives in the Balance [#104] Fit for Life (Bangladesh) A young woman - just a girl, really - is crouching on the floor of her family's house. She's in labor. She isn't being whisked away to a hospital to give birth. This is rural Bangladesh. She's going to have her baby at home, just like over 90% of mothers in Bangladesh. A dhai is at her side, a woman with no medical training, yet she has delivered most of the children in this village. Her tools are a razor blade and a string to tie off the umbilical cord. In different village, another young woman gives birth in a clinic with the aid of trained medical professionals. A health specialist had coached her through her pregnancy, and will visit the family during the first weeks of the baby's infancy. This child and her mother stand a much better chance of surviving birth and the first year of life. duration 50:35   STEREO TVPG

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1650] BRIDE TRAFFICKING - In India one of the consequences of the widespread introduction of sonograms and the age-old preference for male children has been the frequent aborting of female fetuses. In some regions there are as few as 650 female births for every 1000 males. As Fred de Sam Lazaro reports this has resulted in a growing shortage of women and the trafficking of women to fill the need for Indian brides.
    BUILD-ON MOVEMENT - Bob Faw reports on Build-On, founded by Jim Ziolkowski, a devout Catholic who left a career in corporate finance in 1993 to live what he says is the social justice aspect of his Catholic tradition. Build-On, he claims, breaks the inner-city cycle of poverty, illiteracy and low expectations through service and education and is now in 72 public schools nationwide, enrolling 4000 students and building schools in 6 countries.
