Voice of America (VOA) is a United States government-funded multimedia news source and the official external broadcasting institution of the United States. VOA provides programming for broadcast on radio, television, and the Internet outside of the U.S., in English and some foreign languages.

The VOA is fully funded by the U.S. government; the Congress appropriates funds for it annually under the same budget for embassies and consulates. VOA radio and television broadcasts are distributed by sat...

Bernard Lovell (1913-2012), British radio astronomer and founder of the Jodrell Bank Observatory, received an OBE in 1946 for his work on radar, and was knighted in 1961. His steerable radio telescope tracked Sputnik and is now named the Lovell telescope. [Listeners: Alastair Gunn and Megan Argo] TRANSCRIPT: Now, the sequence of events then are really very confused, and they cover the years from about 1950 to about 1952. Husband was given a contract to make a design study of this telescope. My specification was perfectly straightforward, that it should be a paraboloid with a mesh of four, with a bowl, a reflecting bowl with a mesh of four inches, and that it should be rotatable, so that it could be moved to any part of the sky. So the beam could be directed at any part of the sky. Husband...
Pleased to be a guest this morning with KNX 1070 Anchor Dick Helton as we discussed Senate Constitutional Amendment (SCA) 7. This is a measure that Senate Republicans just introduced and it's designed to ensure that the tax dollars that all Californians pay for transportation issues -- every last fee -- goes to transportation taxes. It may surprise some people to learn that a portion of that money -- about $1 billion a year -- gets diverted to the General Fund to pay for projects that have nothing to do with upgrading and fixing our roads and highways. Senate Republicans believe it's time for this diversion of your money -- this budgetary slight of hand -- be put to a stop.

The Russian government is funding international radio and television outlets to provide what it calls alternative news and views. The state-funded radio Sputnik began its broadcasts from Washington on July 1st. VOA’s Zlatica Hoke reports.
If the federal government were to cut off funding for public broadcasting, the programs that so many of us cherish not only wouldn't disappear, they would have a better chance of surviving long into the future.

Radio 1 Interview Roy Cremers en Eva Crutzen http://voordekunst.nl/vdk/project/view/61-hoogtevrees Ondernemers en kunstenaars proberen steeds vaker - on-line - geld in te zamelen voor hun projecten. Crowdfunding heet dat fenomeen. Het komt, door onder meer het schrappen van subsidies, steeds vaker voor. Er zijn in ons land al meer dan 80 projecten, blijkt uit nieuwe gegevens. Daarmee staat het nog in de kinderschoenen. Blijft hert een speeltje voor een select gezelschap of gaat crowdfunding echt groot worden? Een verslag van Jeroen Schutijser. http://voordekunst.nl/vdk/project/view/61-hoogtevrees
It came from nowhere
On the 38 Geary
A girl with a backpack of shrapnel and wire
Through spiderweb windows
Of blood stained glass
A pagoda's shadow and a cruel sunny sky
Oh the flash then the silence
Shouldn't there be screaming praying crying
Oh anything at all
Tell me where are the sirens
Fire's getting closer but I've got to stay calm
It's just the radio darling,
Just the radio and your runaway imagination
Just the radio darling
We can turn away to another station
Outside they're handing out
Fate to the wounded
Little tags in black red yellow, and green
It's now my twenty-fith hour
With a scalpel in hand
If I stop moving I will sleep on my feet
And the rumors are seething
Gunfire at freeway exits, bridges mid-barricades
I can feel the fog creeping
God where is the morphine, the sweet lidocaine
It's just the radio
Sing me a love song dear
What good has the news ever done me
Come on it'll never happen here, oh no
We are not some third world country
This is not some third world country
I'm sorry Mama
I held on for as long as I could
I'm sorry Papa
There was nothing more I could do
