Basic Income

December 2, 2016

This Friday on The Broad Perspective join Host, Vivian Komori and Greg Barnes as
they discuss:
BASIC INCOME
Basic income is money an individual receives regardless of whether he or she works or not, sufficient to
meet our most basic human needs for necessities like food, water, shelter and clothing.  .  It's an amount
sufficient to keep us above the poverty line, not living lavishly, but basically.  And most importantly, it's a
stream of income independent of all other income that functions as a baseline.  It enables and never in
any way prevents, additional income.

Erica Bailey; The Meltdown of Venezuela

November 16, 2016

This Friday on The Broad Perspective join host, Vivian Komori, Donovan Heard, Greg Barnes and Laura Feliz as they chat with:

Erica Bailey

The Meltdown of Venezuela 

Erica Bailey, a civil engineering student, is a native of Venezuela who now resides in the United States.  Her parents and sister are currently trapped there and trying desperately to come LEGALLY to the US.  Her Go Fund Me (gofundme.com) page is:  Rescue From Venezuela

A few short years ago Venezuela was the most prosperous country in South America.  It was also one of the "happiest countries on earth".

 Today, Venezuela's economy is in deep crisis.  It's president, Nicolas Maduro, declared a state of "economic emergency" for 60 days on Friday.  Maduro's government stopped publishing any economic data about the country in 2014, but in the earlier this year that changed as data was published and it was ugly.  Very ugly.  Here are a few contributing factors to the meltdown.

1.  The Oil crash hurt Venezuela deeply

2.  It's currency (bolivar) has plummeted

3.  Intense power struggles within the government

4.  Unable to avoid defaulting on it's debts

5.   Food shortages are escalating.

Discussion of “History is a Weapon” Edward Bernays

November 9, 2016

This Friday on The Broad Perspective join host, Vivian Komori, Greg Barnes and Laura Feliz as they discuss: 

History is a Weapon:  Edward Bernays

How can we manipulate the media?

Edward Louis James Bernays (/bərˈnz/; German: [bɛɐ̯ˈnaɪs]; November 22, 1891 − March 9, 1995) was an Austrian-American pioneer in the field of public relations and propaganda, referred to in his obituary as "the father of public relations".[1] He combined the ideas of Gustave Le Bon and Wilfred Trotter on crowd psychology with the psychoanalytical ideas of his uncle, Sigmund Freud.

He felt this manipulation was necessary in society, which he regarded as irrational and dangerous as a result of the "herd instinct" that Trotter had described.[2]Adam Curtis's award-winning 2002 documentary for the BBC, The Century of the Self, pinpoints Bernays as the originator of modern public relations, and Bernays was named one of the 100 most influential Americans of the 20th century by Life magazine

One of Bernays' favorite techniques for manipulating public opinion was the indirect use of "third party authorities" to plead his clients' causes. "If you can influence the leaders, either with or without their conscious cooperation, you automatically influence the group which they sway." he said. In order to promote sales of bacon, for example, he conducted a research and found that the American public ate very light breakfast of coffee, maybe a roll and orange juice. He went to his physician and found that a heavy breakfast was sounder from the standpoint of health than a light breakfast because the body loses energy during the night and needs it during the day. He asked the physician if he would be willing, at no cost, to write to 5,000 physicians and ask them whether their judgement was the same as his—confirming his judgement. About 4,500 answered back, all concurring that a more significant breakfast was better for the health of the American people than a light breakfast. He arranged for this finding to be published in newspapers throughout the country with headlines like '4,500 physicians urge bigger breakfast'. while other articles stated that bacon and eggs should be a central part of breakfast and, as a result of these actions, the sale of bacon went up.

Admit One    
 What you Must Know When Going to the Hospital

The trauma of being admitted to a hospital, patients and their family members can easily become confused by the bombardment of information and instructions from a sea of strangers. 
 They can lose track of what they need to know and what they need to let their health team know.
