Revolutions: Not Just for the US

Guest: Deena Stryker
Topic: Cuba: Diary of a Revolution
One American’s On-the-Ground Account of the Cuban Revolution Comes to Light in Cuba: Diary of a Revolution

In 1963 Deena Stryker was an intrepid young American reporter working for a French weekly when she traveled to Cuba determined to capture the day-to-day realties of a society in the process Of radically remaking itself. Married to a Frenchman, Stryker’s French citizenship gave her an entré into a post-revolutionary Cuba that Americans were generally denied. Her interview Subjects include those who would attain iconic stature, such as Che Guevara and Fidel Castro and other members of “the Twelve” (the revolutionary government) and those who played a less publicized, but no less pivotal revolutionary role, including Celia Sanchez and Vilma Espin. She also talks to ordinary Cubans who are trying to navigate a new path that is anything but certain. Traveling at times with Alberto Korda, the photographer who shot the image of Che that would be reproduced countless times on everything from t-shirts to key chains across the world, Stryker brings to life the literal and emotional landscape of a country remaking its institutions, reshaping its self-image, and forever changing geopolitics. The result is CUBA: A DIARY OF THE REVOLUTION (July 2016, hardcover, Next Revelation Press). While the book is being published fifty years after Sryker’s journey, its insights are still fresh and the tensions, hopes, and fears it lays bare are still alive today. Packed with photographs, CUBA is at once an unforgettable travelogue of a revolution and an invaluable historical record.

9/11: Explosive Evidence -- Experts Speak Out
by Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth

The 43 technical experts interviewed in Experts Speak Out lay out the case for controlled demolition from their individual areas of expertise in hi-rise architecture, structural engineering, metallurgy, chemistry, physics, and controlled demolition. The seeming implausibility of the implications of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers being demolished with explosives is also handled quite skillfully in the film, as eight experts in psychology discuss the difficulties many people have in confronting the myth-shattering reality. This is a newly released DVD.

Etón FR160B Microlink Self-Powered (Hand Crank Power) AM/FM/NOAA Weather Radio with Flashlight, Solar Power and Cell Phone Charger (Black)
by Eton

AM (520-1710 KHz) & FM (87-108MHz) NOAA weatherband USB cell phone charger (USB cable not included) 3.5 mm headphone Accessories: owner"s manual, warranty card

Reviews: Excellent Item for Travel, Backpacking, Camping, Etc.

This radio is a great little investment. It does exactly everything it states it should. On a 60 second crank I got hours of play. I ran the radio completely dead by leaving the light on and the radio playing at half column. I let the radio play like this with the light on for at least an hour before it went dead. I then put it out in the sun and let it charge with the solar charger for about four hours and then turned the radio on and let it play for only about an hour and then just didn't want to complete the experiment. I am very pleased with this radio. 60 seconds of cranking for hours of play is very reasonable. Letting it charge out in the sun and getting hours of play is very reasonable. I have other brands like this in the past that you would crank for 5 to 10 and get maybe 10 minutes of play.

The USB charge does work, but know that it will not charge an iPhone 3Gs. This is more a problem/restriction of the iPhone 3Gs (a widely discussed complaint across the Internet for many-many generic charging devices) and is not because of the radio. Charging my old Samsung phone was not a problem.

Capitalism: A Love StoryCapitalism: A Love Story. On the 20-year anniversary of his groundbreaking masterpiece "Roger & Me," Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story" comes home to the issue he's been examining throughout his career: the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans. But this time the culprit is much bigger than General Motors, and the crime scene is far wider than Flint, Michigan.
