1. Lighting Up Another Tax Increase On Tobacco In Missouri


    from Missouri Viewpoints / Added

    Should smokers pay more in order to fund early childhood education in Missouri? That's the idea behind the "Raise Your Hand For Kids" campaign, which seeks to raise taxes on tobacco products in the state, with the money raised going to local county governments. That money would then be spend on early childhood education and health programs. Brian Schmidt from the "Raise Your Hand For Kids" campaign makes the case for the proposal. United For Missouri's Carl Bearden argues against it.

          MCA ON THE ROCKS – Ideas shaken and stirred I’M LOOKING THROUGH YOU – THE GENTLE ART OF INVISIBILITY Presented by Joe Hildebrand From the Host: If there is a benchmark of the human condition it is that we never see the things that are right in front of us. It can be anything from the right answer to a brilliant idea to a gigantic star in the night sky. It has even become a cliché: We cannot see the forest for the trees. Jeff Wall is a photographer, he wants us to see things. Yet his particular obsession is with transparencies: His work depends on objects and people that are literally seen through. Indeed, one of his most famous images is entitled After “Invisible Man”, depicting a lone individual in a room fused by countless light bulbs sitting next to an empty chair. So what does it mean to be invisible? How do we find things we cannot see? How do we see without seeing at all? I’ve asked leading magician Adam Mada, our brilliant Nobel Laureate astronomer Brian Schmidt and the first ever totally blind person to obtain a full professorship, the staggeringly intelligent Ron McCallum, to see if they can help us see the light

              In 1998 two teams traced back the expansion of the Universe over billions of years and discovered that it was accelerating, a startling discovery that suggests that more than 70% of the cosmos is contained in a previously unknown form of matter, called Dark Energy. In 2011 Professor Brian Schmidt, leader of the High-Redshift Supernova Search Team, was named joint winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics. Brian and his team’s work on the expansion of the Universe fundamentally changed astrophysics – it opened up a whole new area of science and introduced the world to the concept of Dark Energy. In this one off special event for Perth, Nobel Laureate Professor Brian Schmidt described this discovery and explained how astronomers have used observations to trace our Universe's history back more than 13 billion years, leading them to ponder the ultimate fate of the cosmos. A bit of background on Brian: Born in the US, Professor Schmidt came to the Mt Stromlo Observatory at ANU in 1995 after completing his PhD at Harvard. Brian is continuing his work using exploding stars to study the Universe, and is leading Mt Stromlo’s effort to build the SkyMapper telescope, a new facility in new South Wales that will conduct the most detailed study ever of the southern sky. In addition to the 2011 Nobel Prize, Professor Schmidt has been awarded the Australian Government’s inaugural Malcolm McIntosh award for achievement in the Physical Sciences in 2000, The Australian Academy of Sciences Pawsey Medal in 2001, the Astronomical Society of India’s Vainu Bappu Medal in 2002, and an Australian Research Council Federation Fellowship in 2005. In 2006 Schmidt was jointly awarded the US$1M Shaw Prize for Astronomy, and shared the US$0.5M 2007 Gruber Prize for Cosmology with his High-Z SN Search Team colleagues.
