1. Once they enter fresh water chum salmon stop feeding and morph into an aggressive creature intent only on mating. After spawning, they die and their bodies become a source of nutrients for everything in the forest and sea.

    Very special thanks to Lynn Schooler, who without I could not have made this short. Special thanks to Richard Nelson, Hank Lentfer, Riley Woodford and Henk Meeuwsen for providing additional sounds.

    To Lynn & Michio, whose stories and adventures inspired me to come to Alaska.

  3. On this weekend’s Moyers & Company, Bill Moyers talks with young but very experienced organizers George Goehl, Ai-jen Poo, and Sarita Gupta – all involved with a nationwide citizens’ initiative called the The 99% Spring, which takes place the week of April 9th. Organizers aim to train 100,000 Americans to teach about income inequality in homes, places of worship, campuses and the streets.

    A 99% Spring co-organizer, George Goehl is executive director of National People’s Action, a network of grassroots organizations using direct action to battle economic and racial injustice.

    Ai-jen Poo, director and co-founder of the 10,000-member National Domestic Workers Alliance, led the fight for passage of The Domestic Workers' Bill of Rights in New York State, the first of its kind in America. Sarita Gupta is executive director of Jobs with Justice, a labor organization in 46 cities and 26 states working to create a broad, global movement for economic and social justice. Poo and Gupta are also participating in an economic campaign for domestic and homecare workers of all ages called Caring Across Generations.

    Moyers concludes the broadcast with an essay on what citizens can do to find out who's paying for all those political ads running on their local television stations, including references to initiatives from ProPublica and the New America Foundation.

  4. It’s a massive environmental disaster waiting to happen: Bogota, Colombia has as many people as New York or Rio, but at 2,600 meters it’s the highest large city in the world — too high to pump up water from below. The city relies on the amazing paramo ecosystem for all it’s water — but it's under threat. Sandra, working with CI, is saving the day.
