But others take the view that if everyone can spend as much money as they like to express their political views, then some voices will be amplified while others will be all but drowned out.<br /> Sun, 24 Aug 2014 23:00:00 +0000 47577 at http://redriverradio.org Intelligence Squared U.S. - There is a constitutional right to unlimited political spending Intelligence Squared US: Millennials Don't Stand A Chance http://redriverradio.org/post/intelligence-squared-us-millennials-dont-stand-chance-0 <div><strong><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Airs Sunday, August 17 at 6 p.m. &nbsp;</span></strong>C<span style="line-height: 1.5;">—growing up with revolutionary technology and entering adulthood in a time of recession—have recently been much maligned. Are their critics right? Is this generation uniquely coddled, narcissistic, and lazy? Or have we let conventional wisdom blind us to their openness to change and innovation, and optimism in the face of uncertainty, which, in any generation, are qualities to be admired?<br /> Sun, 17 Aug 2014 23:00:00 +0000 Bill Beckett 47574 at http://redriverradio.org Intelligence Squared US: Millennials Don't Stand A Chance Louisiana Public Square: Defining “Dangerous” http://redriverradio.org/post/louisiana-public-square-defining-dangerous <p><strong>Airs Sunday, August 10 at 6 p.m.</strong> The California killings committed by Eliot Rodger in May have renewed the debate over how and whether to require people with serious mental illness to receive psychiatric care. How does Louisiana determine if someone is a danger to themselves or others? How difficult is it to intervene if an afflicted individual refuses treatment? Are prisons adequately prepared to handle mentally ill offenders? What services exist in the state for persons with mental health issues and have funding cuts reduced their availability? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on Defining “Dangerous.”<br /><br /><strong>Our panelists are</strong>:<br />• William “Beau” Clark, M.D., Coroner, East Baton Rouge Parish<br />• Rochelle Head-Dunham, M.D., Office of Behavioral Health, La. Dept. of Health &amp; Hospitals<br />• Michael S. Blue, M.D., Forensic Psychiatrist, Tulane University<br />• Sheriff Michael Waguespack, Assumption Parish; President of the Louisiana Sheriff’s Association<br /><br />The program also includes interviews with Nick Richard, Executive Director of the St. Tammany Parish Chapter of the National Alliance for Mental Illness; Bill O’Quin, the father of a young man suffering with paranoid schizophrenia who died while in prison; Kevin Robshaw, Director of Louisiana Mental Health Advocacy Services, and Tracey Moseley, an individual in recovery.<br />Beth Courtney, LPB CEO, and Charlie Whinham, LPB news anchor, moderate the discussion.</p><p> Sun, 10 Aug 2014 23:00:00 +0000 47653 at http://redriverradio.org Louisiana Public Square: Defining “Dangerous” The LA Opera On The Air: Mozart's The Magic Flute http://redriverradio.org/post/la-opera-air-mozarts-magic-flute <div><strong><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Airs Saturday, August 9 at 12 noon.&nbsp;</span></strong><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Mozart's delightful world filled with magic and melody will be presented this week on the LA Opera with </span>Janai<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> </span>Brugger<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> in the role of </span>Pamina<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, Lawrence&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Brownlee as </span>Tamino<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, and Erika </span>Miklósa<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> as the Queen of the Night.
