    LITOPIA AFTER DARK is back! And in typical style, our first guest for the new season spent four nights in a freezing cave in Tora Bora interviewing none other than Osama bin Laden. How’s that for openers? But that’s far from Abdel Bari Atwan’s only claim to fame. Born in Gaza, he is one of the world’s leading authorities on al-Qa’ida. Indeed, he wrote the definite book on the subject – The Secret History of al-Qa’ida. At a moment when the West seems poised for yet more intervention in a deeply unstable Middle East, this is just the right time to hear from an author, editor and…

  • For animals and their humans, love speeds the post-quake recovery in Nepal

    28 Aug 2015 | 1:27 pm
    When a buffalo is born in the Nepali village of Kaskikot, it’s treated a lot like a human birth. Today Aamaa, whom I live with, and I are cooking a special meal in honor of baby O’Neil, a buffalo who was born last week. We’re making rice pudding. People and animals nurture tender relationships here in Nepal. The earthquake that took nearly 9,000 human lives earlier this year also claimed an estimated 55,000 farm animals and nearly half a million birds, and the effects of these losses have been felt by both people and animals. Especially in villages like Tripureswor, 100 miles east of…
  • Mammoth tusks are serving as a cover for illegal traffic in modern day elephant ivory

    24 Aug 2015 | 3:03 pm
    Selling elephant ivory is illegal around the world thanks to tough regulations like the Convention on Trade in Endangered Species. But despite the international ban, elephant poaching continues in Africa and ivory carvings made from elephant tusks fetch high prices in China. So, as anti-ivory enforcement efforts and education campaigns impact supplies of elephant ivory, some traders are turning instead to ivory recovered from woolly mammoths. Their tusks have been preserved in the frozen tundra of Northern Siberia for thousands of years. Some have called the booming trade in these tusks…

    Ten years ago, Hurricane Katrina was rapidly approaching the Gulf Coast. And just over four years ago, a massive earthquake and tsunami struck Tohoku in northeastern Japan. Now one researcher is learning lessons from the parallels between those disasters. Malka Older participated in the humanitarian response to the Japan tsunami. What she saw inspired her to investigate the commonalities between Tohoku and Louisiana. Older says local residents staged a local emergency response in Tohoku. But locals were hit hard enough that they weren’t even sure what supplies they needed. “It was really…
  • Humans kill adult animals much more than other predators, are in fact 'super predators'

    21 Aug 2015 | 12:40 pm
    Humans are very different from other predatory creatures. This fact is not new. But a new study published in Science concludes humans are much more likely to kill adult-aged animals than any other predator. The idea for the study came when one of the authors was doing population work looking at stickleback fish, a creature not usually preyed on by humans. Only about 2 to 5 percent of adult sticklebacks are killed by predators. "Natural predators in the ocean take about 1 percent adult biomass in their prey populations. The same human predator, the fishery, takes about 14 percent of adult…

    Even during an era of great explorers tackling the nigh impossible, the Norwegian seaman Roald Amundsen was sui generis: He discovered the fabled Northwest Passage through Canada; he led the first crew to reach the South Pole, and was the first explorer to successfully reach both poles. However, Amundsen went bankrupt and died a broken man, on a rescue mission searching for the crew of an airship stranded in the Arctic. His plane — and his body — were never found.   Finally, after more than 80 years, one of his most famous ships, Maud, may now be coming home. "Maud" was launched on June…

    An Egyptian judge handed out what the New York Times characterizes as “unexpectedly harsh verdicts” against three journalists working for the Al Jazeera English news network by sentencing each of them to three years in prison. International rights groups immediately criticized the verdict that sentenced the journalists for operating without a press license and broadcasting “false news.” The verdict came as a surprise because Egyptian government officials had made it clear they did not like that the trial was going on because it had brought about so much international scrutiny on the…

He also found a new target: Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her husband Anthony Weiner. Speaking to a boisterous audience that was eager to clap and cheer everything the real estate magnate said, Trump called Weiner a “perv” and made fun of the sexting scandal that ended his political career using some weird hand gestures. All that seemed par for the course for Trump. But what appeared to be (yet another) new low for the most popular Republican presidential hopeful…

    How do you provide granular administrative privileges to junior administrators? Richard talks to Mark Minasi about the idea of Just Enough Administration (JEA). And it's not just for junior administration - the conversation dives into this idea that administrators should be domain users most of the time, and only elevate their privileges for specific tasks. JEA helps you organize privilege sets for those tasks so that you have no more capability than necessary. Administrator accounts are the hot new exploit vector, it's time to lock them down!

No one’s been waiting for a “Netflix of Podcasting.” Any app with access to a directory of podcasts (in other words, pretty much all of them) is already a “Netflix of Podcasting.” 2.) People who are “generally into podcasts” already know how to listen to them. They already have easy access to whatever they want to listen to. 3.) No single platform can or will “blow up the audience for…

In these meetings, TV networks commune with potential sponsors to hammer out advertising deals for the coming season.

      Thomas has debt! He bought a car. Not a new car of course but having recently gone through the process, he’ll share what he learned. Thomas went from a “It gets me from A to B” car person to a person who really likes cars and wants a nice, fast, shiny one. He didn’t buy a car he couldn’t afford of course. He still has plenty of money to pay his living expenses and to invest $2,000 a month. You don’t always have to go with the cheapest option as long as you can say the same. Know what you want and do your research before you walk into a dealership.

      We interview Chris Clothier to explain real estate investing without the mess. Collect the rent check while someone else does the dirty work! Becoming a landlord can generate great passive income. Make the income even more passive by hiring a management company to deal with the day to day hassles of being a landlord. You don’t even have to live in the same state as your rental properties. By hiring a property management company, you can be an absentee owner. Chris does recommend that if you are out of state you buy more than one property so that money is always coming in from at…

    Everyday Thanks with Daniella Whyte

  • Fresh Air, Gotthold Ephraim Lessing, and Psalm 108:5 (Everyday Thanks #617)

    Daniella Whyte
    9 Aug 2015 | 9:00 am
    Our thankful thought for today is this: In a world contaminated with bitterness, resentment, and frustration, a grateful person is a breath of fresh air. What really matters is not that we have problems, but how we respond to those problems and embrace them as disguised blessings. The world — our world — would be much better if we stopped complaining about our problems, and instead saw them as instruments of grace and paths to joy. Our quote of thanks is from Gotthold Ephraim Lessing. He said, "A single grateful thought toward heaven is the most complete prayer.” Our Bible verse of…
  • Everyday Decisions, Denis Watley, and Psalm 108:1 (Everyday Thanks #616)

    Daniella Whyte
    8 Aug 2015 | 9:00 am
    Our thankful thought for today is this: It seems much easier to express gratitude at a party or on vacation than through the hustle and bustle of everyday life. In some respects, it is. But true gratitude that is heartfelt and consciously embraced is not based on the whims of life, but on the steady beat of everyday decisions. Our quote of thanks is from Denis Watley. He said, "Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is a spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.” Our Bible verse of thanks is Psalm 108:1 (NLT). It reads,…
  • Grace Infusion, Joan Chittister, and Psalm 107:31 (Everyday Thanks #615)

    Daniella Whyte
    7 Aug 2015 | 9:00 am
    Our thankful thought for today is this: Gratitude that is infused with grace and overwhelmed with joy gives us strength to face even the most difficult days. When we know every situation we face is for our good, we can be thankful for it. Our quote of thanks is from Joan Chittister. She said, "Darkness deserves gratitude. It is the alleluia point at which we learn to understand that all growth does not take place in the sunlight.” Our Bible verse of thanks is Psalm 107:31 (NLT). It reads, "Let them praise the Lord for his great love and for the wonderful things he has done for them.”…
  • In Everything and For Everything, Nancy Leigh DeMoss, and Psalm 106:1 (Everyday Thanks #614)

    Daniella Whyte
    6 Aug 2015 | 9:00 am
    Our thankful thought for today is this: It is important to give thanks in everything, but it is equally important to give thanks for everything. Many of us find it easy to give thanks when we have experienced grace, or love, or some kind of good thing in our lives, but find it difficult to do the same for the problem that precedes the good experience. Our quote of thanks is from Nancy Leigh DeMoss. She said, "Gratitude is a lifestyle. A hard-fought, grace-infused, biblical lifestyle.” Our Bible verse of thanks is Psalm 106:1 (NLT). It reads, "Praise the Lord! Give thanks to the Lord, for he…
  • Inverse Paranoid, Marianne Williamson, and Psalm 136:1 (Everyday Thanks #613)

    Daniella Whyte
    5 Aug 2015 | 9:00 am
    Our thankful thought for today is this: Businessman and self-help author, W. Clement Stone, is credited with creating the term “inverse paranoid”. Instead of believing the world and the people in it were planning to do him harm, he believed that the world and people were going to do him good. This positive belief often creates the fact. Our quote of thanks is from Marianne Williamson. She said, "Gratitude is the opener of locked-up blessings." Our Bible verse of thanks is Psalm 136:1 (NLT). It reads, "Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.” *******…
