Head On Free speech - Je suis Charlie 5. Free speech - Je suis CharlieSusan: The brutal massacre by Muslim extremists of 12 people at the Paris office of the satirical newspaper Charile Hebdo. The next day 6 hostages were murdered at a kosher market in Marais. Why disaffected, young Western men are attracted to violent fundamentalism is the question we must face. Krista The blood spilled in Paris was only the beginning. A bomb in Yemen killed 37 people and 2000 Nigerians were massacred by Boka Haram. Meanwhile the school where 130 Pakistani children were gunned down by Islamic extremists just reopened. We need not understand why jihadists murder, we must stop them. Susan: Oh yes, let's. Certainly the war on terror worked in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and is going swimmingly in Iran, Yemen - oh yeah - Syria. Ooops - maybe not so much. The answers to freelance terrorism are as complex and diverse as the perpetrators. Sending in the drones won't work.Krista: Krista: One of the answers is to call the atrocities what they are: Islamist terrorism. While the most Muslims are peaceful, a growing percentage kills in the name of their god. We need to be as serious about stopping them as they are about conquest, genocide, and subjugation under Sharia law.

NOVA Big Bang Machine On July 4, 2012, scientists at the giant atom smashing facility at CERN announced the discovery of a subatomic particle that seems like a tantalizingly close match to the elusive Higgs Boson, thought to be responsible for giving all the stuff in the universe its mass. Since it was first proposed nearly 50 years ago, the Higgs has been the holy grail of particle physicists: finding it completes the "standard model" that underlies all of modern particle physics. Now CERN's scientists are preparing for the Large Hadron Collider's second act, when they restart the history-making collider, running at higher energy — hoping for the next great discovery that will change what we know about the particles and forces that make up our universe.

Head On Physician Assisted suicide bill in CO leg 3. Physician Assisted suicide bill in CO legKrista: Legislation for physician assisted suicide, euthanasia, should be opposed. Similar laws in Holland and Belgium for terminally ill, consenting patients have evolved to include involuntary killing of sick children and adults. Terminally or chronically ill patients, the disabled, the depressed and the suffering deserve compassion and care — not a poison pill.Susan: Physician-assisted suicide is humane and enlightened. The government has no business determining individual choice - whether it's an unwanted pregnancy or a decision to end his or her life. As to involuntary murder - give me a break Krista. You're listening to too much wing-nut radio.Krista: So the UK Telegraph, Current Oncology, and the United Nations are rightwing? The facts are in. First the unborn, then the dying, the old, the disabled. Let's see who else we can throw out of the lifeboat. That's what happens when human life is no longer precious. We are all vulnerable.

Mind of a Chef; The Impermanence The more things change ... the more they continue to change. So much of cooking, writing, art and music is based on what came before. First there was meat.

Head On Keystone Pipeline Susan: The first showdown between the Republican-controlled Congress and the President is uh - working its way through the pipeline. The House and Senate okayed Keystone XL. Obama threatens to veto. Fossil fuel and climate change are real. Cheap oil is a Saudi head-fake. Let's get our head out of the tar . . . sand.Krista: The Keystone Pipeline has bipartisan support among the public. Thousands of miles of pipelines already crisscross the county. Pipeline transport safer than by rail. Nebraska's Supreme Court tossed out the last lawsuit and the State Department has signed off. President Obama should just sign the bill and move on.Susan: The definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over again, believing the outcome will be different. Our addiction to fossil fuels is deadly.. Gobal climate change is verifiable. Believing we can continue to fuel our lifestyles at the will of the Saudi's - and Koch brothers - defines insanity.Krista: Wind turbines kill a half million birds each year including endangered species. Nuclear energy produces no emissions but does produce radioactive waste. Sun panels and dams are limited in what they can produce. In other words, everything has a cost. Insanity is believing there's some miraculous cost free energy source.

Head On TABOR refunds 4. TABOR refunds Krista: Economists predict that the state will have to refund $200 million to Coloradans under the Tax Payer Bill of Rights, TABOR. Democrat Speaker Hullinghorst says Coloradans would be better off if the General Assembly spent the money on infrastructure and education than if Coloradoans spent it themselves. Most Coloradans disagree. Susan: OK then. Let's drown government in a bathtub. Each of us can build our own roads, schools, universities and parks. We can home school our kids, maintain our own infrastructure. round up our own militia and bury our trash. And if a tornado demolishes your neighborhood- too bad.Krista: Our choices are higher taxes and spending or total anarchy? I don't think so. How about this: government should live within its means and ses priorities. It should determine what is best done the state level and leave the rest to local government and civil society. Government should respect taxpayers. Susan:

Big Movie Classics: Legends of Flight Originally produced for exhibition in IMAX™ museum theaters, acclaimed Giant Screen film director Stephen Low takes the audience on an exhilarating ride in the legendary 20th Century aircraft that most strongly influenced the revolutionary design of the 787 jetliner and the giant Airbus A380.

Head On Cuba 2. Cuba Susan: The biggest political surprise of 2014? Think 53. Thaw in the relationship between the US and Cuba, following 53-years in the freezer - AND, Cuba frees 53 political dissidents. Normalizing relations with Cuba will be good for the United States and for the people of Cuba.Krista: We'll see if normalizing relations will help Cuba. Existing trade with Europe, Canada, Mexico and South America has yet to awaken this poor, oppressive communist nation to the virtues of free markets and human rights. Increased US trade will benefit Cuban elites and US companies but not the ordinary Cuban. Susan: Countless families - with one foot in the U.S. and the other in Cuba will benefit from the improved relationships. As tourists flock to Cuba, their economy will improve, the arts will flourish and enhanced trade will benefit the people of Cuba. The Castro's hold is tenuous and shrinking.Krista: Let's your right and the change doesn't actually resuscitate the regime. Corrupt dictators and their cronies have a way of taking the lion's shares of benefits that come from aid or trade. Let's also hope that Castro pals Kim Jong Un and Vlad Putin don't see an opportunity for trouble.

While fostering a truly collaborative environment - there are no individual leaders or directors - Rude Mechs has jumped into the national spotlight as one of the most innovative and subversive acting companies in the country. Their generous creative spirit also led them to create Girl Action, a year-round arts mentoring program for teenage girls. This "punk theater" ensemble was borne out of a desire for a truly collaborative environment, which has also led to their management of a multi-arts space for the artistic community.

Head On Keystone Pipeline Susan: The first showdown between the Republican-controlled Congress and the President is uh - working its way through the pipeline. The House and Senate okayed Keystone XL. Obama threatens to veto. Fossil fuel and climate change are real. Cheap oil is a Saudi head-fake. Let's get our head out of the tar . . . sand.Krista: The Keystone Pipeline has bipartisan support among the public. Thousands of miles of pipelines already crisscross the county. Pipeline transport safer than by rail. Nebraska's Supreme Court tossed out the last lawsuit and the State Department has signed off. President Obama should just sign the bill and move on.Susan: The definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over again, believing the outcome will be different. Our addiction to fossil fuels is deadly.. Gobal climate change is verifiable. Believing we can continue to fuel our lifestyles at the will of the Saudi's - and Koch brothers - defines insanity.Krista: Wind turbines kill a half million birds each year including endangered species. Nuclear energy produces no emissions but does produce radioactive waste. Sun panels and dams are limited in what they can produce. In other words, everything has a cost. Insanity is believing there's some miraculous cost free energy source.

Most Coloradans disagree. Susan: OK then. Let's drown government in a bathtub. Each of us can build our own roads, schools, universities and parks. We can home school our kids, maintain our own infrastructure. round up our own militia and bury our trash. And if a tornado demolishes your neighborhood- too bad.Krista: Our choices are higher taxes and spending or total anarchy? I don't think so. How about this: government should live within its means and ses priorities. It should determine what is best done the state level and leave the rest to local government and civil society. Government should respect taxpayers. Susan:

Snapshot: a love story interrupted by invasion A true story of a daughter's journey through a landscape of years, memories and realities. Her journey initiated by the question "What do I know about war?" The answers are lying in an album of faded photos of her absent father, who left for Vietnam before she was born. She creates a world in which her father has a leading role. Snapshots from the album projected larger than life on a black wall bring the beautiful and ghostly characters to life. R&B tracks take us back to a high school dance floor in the 1960s in Appalachia where a White girl and Black boy kiss for the first time. The sound of a gunshot brings us back to the rice fields of Vietnam and a soldier's decision to kill or die. Carrying her past and the pain of her father's absence, a moment of dance positions her in the quest to find him.Her growing insights reveal how the forces of history, race and war affected herself and her family, and the torn fragments of her life begin to re-connect. SNAPSHOT honors her father and other Vietnam Veterans who have been lost under the avalanche of history. This play is a daring look at the truth of our past and an inspiring example of the need for us to reconcile our history --- one life at time.

Neal Cassady - The Denver Years NEAL CASSADY: THE DENVER YEARS is a documentary based on the autobiographical accounts of Neal Cassady, his troubled youth in Denver and the crucial role that it played in the germination of American beat culture. Neal Cassady was a charismatic, larger then life character. His charm, manic energy, sexual swagger, and free flowing verbosity made him the authentic 'hero' of the beat generation.

The film is directed and produced by Heather Dalton and produced by Joshua Hassel in association with CPT12, the presenting station.

What shaped the most infamous 20th century muse? A love affair between Denver, a culture in transition, and some of the most influential writers of our time. He was introduced to the world as Dean Moriarty in Jack Kerouac’s classic, On The Road and for controversial literary figures Allen Ginsberg, Ken Kesey, Tom Wolfe and Hunter S. Thompson, Cassady was more then a friend – he was their muse and inspiration.

Just by being himself, Neal Cassady created a foundation for the beat generation and set the wheels in motion for the counter culture revolution that would open up the floodgates for decades of free thinkers to follow.
 
The film features interviews with prominent and historical figures including Carolyn Cassady, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, David Amram, John Allen Cassady, Jami Cassady Ratto, Cathy Cassady Sylvia, Jerry Cimino, Tom Noel, Ed White and Al Hinkle.

Unbreakable - A Story of Hope and Healing in Haiti On January 12th, 2010, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, bringing devastation to an already impoverished nation. Hundreds of thousands lost their lives; more than 1 million were displaced, and tens of thousands were injured—including countless children and young people who suffered the loss of limbs.Against this backdrop, two American organizations stepped in to provide aid. Facing political corruption and the threat of failure, Project Medishare successfully set up clinics for the victims, and the Knights of Columbus ensured that prosthetics limbs would be made available for every young amputee.But this was only the beginning of the story. Amidst incredible odds, a small group of earthquake victims became emboldened to defy deeply entrenched Haitian stereotypes against people with disabilities. Team Zaryen was formed,an amputee soccer team that transformed victims into beacons of hope, creating real possibilities for those attempting to rebuild their lives -including U.S. soldiers returning from wars overseas.At times a searing analysis of the post-earthquake horrors and Haiti's turbulent history, and at times a poignant sports story about overcoming insurmountable odds, Unbreakable: A Story of Hope and Healing in Haiti ultimately a powerful reminder of the triumph of the human spirit, and of how the bonds of hope are oftentimes born out of the shackles of despair.
