As President Trump doubled down on his defense of Confederate statues and monuments this week, he overlooked an important fact noted by historians: The majority of the memorials seem to have been built with the intention not to honor fallen soldiers, but specifically to further ideals of white supremacy.

President Trump is only the latest man in the White House to see his plans, his governing coalition and his popular standing all at risk because of a racially charged issue.

On a recent weekday, Vamsi Komarala guides me up to the rooftop of the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology in New Delhi, where he teaches physics. Fields of solar panels adorn the buildings.

I swipe an index finger across one of the panels to see if weeks of monsoon rains have washed it clean. My finger comes back filthy with grit.

Vamsi tells me the panels are washed twice a week, then explains the grime: "That is because in New Delhi, we have a lot of dust."

A group of alumni from one of the country's most influential evangelical Christian universities is condemning their school's president for his continued alignment with President Trump.

Imagine the worst has happened to your family. You've been forced to flee your home.

You eventually make it to safety. But now you're living in a camp for displaced persons.

You don't want to just depend on handouts. So how do you make a living?

When children in Turkey head back to school this fall, something will be missing from their textbooks: any mention of evolution.

The Turkish government is phasing in what it calls a values-based curriculum. Critics accuse Turkey's president of pushing a more conservative, religious ideology — at the expense of young people's education.

At a playground in an upscale, secular area of Istanbul, parents and grandparents express concern over the new policy.

Last weekend, when white nationalists descended on Charlottesville to protest, it was clear that almost exclusively white, young males comprised the so-called alt-right movement — there were women, but very few.

So where were the white women who weren't out protesting in the streets?

For the most part, journalist Seyward Darby discovered, they're online.

Last week, NPR had a story that garnered a huge response from listeners and Shots readers.

In the last three years, we've had El Niño, "The Blob," and when they merged, “El Blobiño!”  Those conditions led to the Wreck of the Cassin's Auklet, the Domoic Acid outbreak that wiped out the Dungeness Crab season, the collapse of the Kelp forests, and more.  On The Ecology Hour, we talk with Dr. William Sydeman of The Farallon Institute and get an update on what has happened and what we can expect going forward. 

This show aired on Tuesday August 8, and is available for streaming or download from the KZYX Jukebox.

Station News

Mendocino County Public Broadcasting celebrated Monday's partial solar eclipse with safety and style at the KZYX studio in Philo. Programmer Beth Lang, who hosts World Tour on alternate Thursday afternoons and also produces the KZYX Community Calendar, gave everyone at the station a safe viewing experience by bringing eclipse glasses and a kitchen colander, which cast a lovely array of eclipse-shaped shadows on the hood of her car. 

Welcome to the KZYX tech blog. Here I hope to provide periodic updates on the technical state of the station, inject a bit of humor now and then and maybe answer some of the more commonly asked technical questions. I hope not to be too techno-jargonish and will try to give timelines and links to more information whenever possible. Thanks, Rich Culbertson
