Luncheon for Literacy with Guest Dean Norris

Jul 27, 2015

The Cape Fear Literacy Council (CFLC) is holding its 6th annual Literacy Luncheon.  This fundraising event offers entertainment, success stories from students, and special guest speaker Dean Norris (Breaking Bad, Under the Dome).  

Testament of Youth is a powerful story of love, war, and remembrance based on the First World War memoir by Vera Brittain, starring Kit Harington (Game Of Thrones) and Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina). Brittain's novel has become the classic testimony for WWI from a woman's point of view. This adaptation presents the searing journey from youthful hopes and dreams to the edge of despair and back again. It's a film about young love, the futility of war, and how to make sense of the darkest times. (PG-13, 9 minutes)

On the next CoastLine, it’s an issue most just toss by the curb: trash and recycling. But we’re diving into this topic to explore how these services work in New Hanover and Brunswick counties. Is the area keeping up with modern trends, and how are we rethinking waste?

Guest: Joe Suleyman, Director of New Hanover County’s Environmental Management

Thank you for doing the no interruption fund raising. It made me want to donate again.

Listener RA agreed, but added,

Just don’t spend days telling us how you are not going to interrupt programming!

That’s our hope, RA, but it depends on how the pledges come in – when we hit the goal, we’ll stop. Thanks for writing.

Journalist Jessica Grose is no stranger to criticism of her voice. When she was co-hosting the Slate podcast, the DoubleX Gabfest, she would receive emails complaining about her "upspeak" — a tendency to raise her voice at the end of sentences. Once an older man she was interviewing for an article in Businessweek told her that she sounded like his granddaughter.

"That was the first moment I felt [my voice] was hurting my career beyond just irritating a couple listeners," Grose tells Fresh Air's Terry Gross.

NASA's planet-hunting Kepler Telescope has spotted the first roughly Earth-sized world orbiting in the "Goldilocks zone" of another star – offering perhaps the best bet so far for life elsewhere in the universe.

A year on Kepler-452b, which is about 1,400 light years from us in the constellation Cygnus, is 385 days, meaning its orbit is just a bit farther away from its star than the Earth is from the sun. That places it squarely within what planetary scientists call the habitable zone, or "Goldilocks" zone — not too cold and not too hot.

In a unanimous decision, the Wilmington City Council passed a resolution opposing oil drilling off the North Carolina coast. Advocates on both sides focused on the economic pros and cons of drilling’s precursor seismic testing. 

 

Before making their decision, City Council heard arguments from both sides of the offshore drilling debate. Lindsey Deignan of the SurfRider Foundation spoke against seismic testing and offshore drilling. Deignan says the entire coastal economy is at stake:
