PRI's The World: 10/05/2015Today we ask why the US launched air-strikes on a hospital in Afghanistan. Also, we hear how a Noble prize-winning doctor in China developed an anti-malaria drug from a Chinese herbal medicine, and why residents of Beirut speak three languages ? often in the same sentence.
PRI's The World: 10/02/2015Where does the United States stack up in the list of "the world's most dangerous countries?" We find out from someone who studies global gun violence, and can put the levels of such violence in the United States in perspective. One UNC professor also discusses with us what role social media plays, if any, in propagating and promoting gun violence. Later, we bring you a story on refugees resettling in Burlington, Vermont, and hear from business owners who are increasingly relying on these new arrivals to fill worker shortages. Plus, we take a look at the 50th anniversary of the Immigration Act, which transformed the US.
PRI's The World: 10/01/2015An Afghanistan-based reporter says the Taliban's goal in fighting for control of Kunduz has more to do with scoring PR points than with making lasting gains on the ground. Taliban fighters have also been posting selfies of themselves in Kunduz, and that marks a big shift for these militants, whose radical interpretation of Islam has long forbidden the use of the Internet. Now they're using the web to promote their cause. Plus, we hear a very personal story many second- and third-generation Americans can relate to about the language gap that often exists between different generations of an immigrant family.
