Good News Friday // Natural Compounds// Message in a Bottle // Google Streetview Setback //
Its another Good News Friday! Natural compounds are being shown to be helpful in a host of ways. Chitosan from shells may help to remove radioactivity, banana peels are efficient water purifiers and have other uses, berries can reduce high blood pressure. A message in a bottle from a 5 year old boy is found almost 25 years later. Google has lost a battle with the court in Switzerland and must blur out faces and license plates.
Diane Bish // Organ Music //
Diane regales us with stories of some of the very historic and famous organs she has had an opportunity to play. Those played on by Bach, Handel, Mozart and the like. Even though very old, these organs are very well maintained.
Drivers Licenses // Scanning //
Do you have any idea how much information they hoover off a scan of your Driver's License? It is scary. This is being done not only by the Government but also by stores and bars. Katherine had her eyes opened wide when she returned from an overseas trip. You do not have to be photographed on your return - just seek out a Customs Agent. This appears to be just another way to whittle down some of our few remaining freedoms. A show to listen to.

Hibiscus Tea // PubMed // "I have nothing to hide" //

Ressurrection Graves // Homelessness // Sexual Abuse //
Ressurrection and Katherine talk about the relationship of homelessness and sex trade work to childhood sexual abuse. The statistics are stunning and very eyeopening.
