NEW PODCAST!!!- feed://www.outfarpress.com/podcast.xml (128kb Highest Quality)

This week's show features stories from Radio Deutsche-Welle, Spanish National Radio, The Voice Of Russia, and NHK World Radio Japan.
From GERMANY- There are further strains in US- German relations following the discovery of two separate new spy cases- Germans were paid large sums of money by the CIA to pass on classified information- these cases are independent of the NSA and Verizon scandals. In Ukraine, the week began with Kiev rejecting a ceasefire unless separatists relinquished their weapons, then the separatists rejected more talk of a ceasefire, then the US and France threatened more sanctions against Russia. On Monday election officials in Afghanistan declared the World Bank candidate the victor despite widespread fraud, and on Wednesday the anti-Taliban resistance candidate declared his victory. The back and forth attacks between Israel and Palestine escalated each day, with scores of Palestinians dead- Israel is considering seizing the Gaza Strip.
From SPAIN- A further description of the Palestine-Israeli fighting. Iraqi security forces found 53 corpses who were executed though it was unclear which side they were on.
From RUSSIA- An interview with German Christopher Herstel, German political analyst, on how Ukraine is doing under the rule of Poroshenko. He also remarks on how most of the major media has lost all credibility in their reporting of the events occurring in that divided country.
From JAPAN- The US has offered to help Ukraine with its gas loss from Russia by assisting them in setting up fracking operations in their country. A report on the chaos in Iraq. A Chinese newspaper ran a full-page ad with the title "Japan Wants A War Again", in reference to the new constitutional interpretation that Japan may engage in self-defense. The operator of the Fukushima nuclear power plant says they have no idea when it can get a cooling system restarted in spent fuel pools. The Pugwash conferences were begun in 1957 for scientists to gather and call for the abolition of nuclear weapons- next year's annual event will be held in Nagasaki.

There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line -

I was interviewed for an informative weekly radio show Mediageek, available at http://radio.mediageek.net

All that plus times and frequencies for listening at home. It's free to rebroadcast, please notify me if you're airing it and haven't notified me in the last month, please mention the website if you only air a portion. If you just want to listen and have a slow connection, try the streaming version- lower sound quality but good enough and way easier if you don't have a high-speed internet connection. If streaming is a problem because of your slow connection, download the smaller file- it takes 20 minutes or less, and will play swell in any mp3 player application (RealPlayer, Winamp, Quicktime, iTunes, etc) you have on your computer.
TIME SLOT on KZYX! This program will be aired on Sunday afternoon at 4pm (PST) on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via < http://www.kzyx.org >

I hope you'll listen and air this if you're connected with a radio station. I am still wondering how to get financially compensated for the 25 hours I put into this program weekly- any ideas are appreciated. Any stations rebroadcasting this (or listeners) are welcome to donate for production costs. You can do so through the website. Many thanks to those that have donated! No Guilt! (maybe a little)

Visual Art is a global language!


The 17th World Bodypainting Festival has come to an end with explosive fireworks cheering on the new World Champions in a range of categories. The art of bodypainting has taken on cult status throughout the world in the past decade. A small town in Austria becomes the mecca of body art annually as hundreds of artists converge from around the world to test their skills against the worlds best.

This year has proved to be tough competition with some amazing stories. The top ten artists in the brush and sponge category came from nine different countries with Riina Laine from Finland coming up on top. In the Special Effects category Gabriela Hajek-Renner from Austria brought back a world Champion title to home soil. In the airbrush category artist Alex Hansen from Brazil won first place taking home a trophy that he had coincidentally also designed for the competition.

Perhaps the most exciting wins of the festival were by Scott Fray and Madelyn Greco from the USA who took home first places in face painting and UV effects. These artists have won every other World Title available making them the only artists in history to take out five world champion titles in five categories.

After the excitement of thousands of visitors dancing to live music as artists painted all weekend, the festival came to an end with its famous colour splash after show party. Hundreds of people throw and spread paint upon each other as DJ's from London pump out original beets. If only the whole world were this colourful!
