Prepping for Polio & Remembering Half the Sky

I apologize, right off the bat, for the lack of integrated links in this post…It’s time to buy a new computer that can do new-fangled things like that, I guess.  *sigh*

As we get set to tackle Polio: An American Story as our next selection, let me offer a recent news story that gives a quick update on the state of worldwide polio eradication efforts from the Associated Press. (Link: http://tinyurl.com/99h9lme)

Also, one of our past selections, Half the Sky, is being aired as a two-part documentary on PBS this week.  In the Twin Cities, the air times on tpt2 are:

Episode 1 – Monday, 10/1 from 8-10pm OR 10/2 from 2-4am

Episode 2 – Tuesday, 10/2 from 8-10pm OR 10/3 from 2-4am

If previous features from the “Independent Lens” series are any indication, then I would guess that the special will also appear on their website (Link: http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/half-the-sky/) after the initial airings are completed.
