Left and the Law: fighting junk science in court

Categories:
program date: 
Mon, 03/10/2014
Jan Haaken and Mike Snedecker bring another installment of the Left and the Law. Today they focus on legislation in Texas that allows innocent people to get their convictions overturned. In particular, drawing on a case of purported child-abuse, it allows defendants to challenge junk science pushed by experts with new research. For example, much research has not been done on the inner anatomy of young girls' vaginas, and new research suggests that the hitherto unappreciated variability of some of these features (e.g. the hymen) can be mistakenly attributed to abuse. 16:07 minutes (14.76 MB)

High Stakes Testing As Class War Strategy

program date: 
Mon, 03/10/2014
Bill Resnick talks with local education activist Hyung Nam about high stakes testing in US schools. Hyung talks about how he was threatened with firing from Wilson High School for asking critical questions about high stakes testing, but also for raising other critical questions about teacher's academic freedom. Hyung explains how business interests are driving "education reform" to turn education into a business. This is happening, he says, in the broader context of capitalism's perpetual crisis (stagnating wages, recessions, collapsing tax bases, etc.), which is transfered to the sphere of education in terms of greedy or lazy teachers. 20:17 minutes (18.57 MB)

Annam has been referred to as a midwife to the soul and a bridge to the God Mind within. She inspires us to true awareness and unity consciousness as she helps you to become your authentic divine self. Annam is a modern mystic for the student of life, Unity and the presence of the diving spirit.

Portland area lawyer and activist spoke on the USAPATRIOT Act.

 A main theme was the interplay between individual rights and collective security. Mr Nelson showed slides of the 1st, 4th and 5th amendments to the US Constitution and gave several examples, including Portland’s Mohamed Mohamud case, of how government actions may vary.  He argued that individual rights are both most vulnerable and most important in times of crises. Mr Nelson, a lawyer, summarized by saying that the courts may slowly be reigning in the constitutional abuses of the U.S.A.P.A.T.R.I.O.T Act and that citizens are ultimately responsible for maintaining their constitutional freedoms. 39:54 minutes (36.52 MB)
