Fri, 15 Dec 2017 23:00:00 +0000

Off the Clock – Meet Alice Wells, Missouri Contemporary Ballet’s Newest Member Columbia’s Missouri Contemporary Ballet celebrated its 12th season last month with its original production Eclipse in Movement. This week, I talked with its newest member, Alice Wells, about the joys and challenges of working as a professional dancer for a small company. She’s 21-years-old and moved away from home at the young age of 14 to start training as a professional. Erin McKinstry: “Could you start by telling me how you got started and interested in dance?” Alice Wells: “Yeah, so I actually can't remember my time when I was not interested. When I was three years old, I went up to my mom, and I was like, ‘Mom I'm 3 years old now. I'm ready to take ballet.’ And she was like, ‘Oh, okay.’ So yeah, I never stopped.” EM: “I grew up dancing.

Global Journalist: The Looted Antiquities Trade

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 17:56:52 +0000

Conflict in the Middle East and elsewhere has fueled a booming trade in looted antiquities from archaeological sites and museums. Millions of dollars worth of artifacts have disappeared, with some resurfacing for sale in Europe and the United States. The black market trade provided tens of millions of dollars of funding for the Islamic State, one of the largest groups involved in the business. With ISIS nearing defeat, archaeologists are looking for ways to halt the trade in looted artifacts from Syria, Iraq and other conflict zones. On this edition of Global Journalist, we discuss the trade in stolen cultural artifacts.

Thinking Out Loud: Chief Chris Hammann

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 14:14:39 +0000

Besides a familiarity with law enforcement techniques, a small-town police chief must possess an awareness of local history, the economy and city policy. Chris Hammann recently spoke to KBIA's Trevor Harris about the nature of his work as chief of police in Vandalia, Missouri . Hammann discussed the community impact of a local women's prison, his knowledge of repeat customers and made a call for legalizing marijuana in the state for medicinal use.

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 21:58:43 +0000

Traditional bluegrass music is a melting pot. It has roots in Appalachian, Celtic and jazz music, and musicologists trace the origins of the banjo back to traditional stringed instruments from West Africa. It’s a genre that’s constantly evolving. Pat Kay is a bluegrass musician and books shows at the Blue Note, a music venue in Columbia. He said the traditional style has seen a resurgence in recent years.

Global Journalist: India's Air Pollution Crisis

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 17:38:25 +0000

Recently an international cricket match in the Indian city of Delhi had to be temporarily halted in the middle of the game for an unusual reason. The cause: air pollution levels so high that a top player for India's opponent, Sri Lanka, began vomiting on the field. India has had pollution problems for years, but recently it has gotten significantly worse. Smog was so bad in New Delhi last month the government ordered thousands of schools closed and banned trucks from the road for a week. But India’s problem goes far beyond New Delhi. According to the World Health Organization, the country has 13 of the world’s 25 most polluted cities. And in 2015, the British medical journal The Lancet reported that 1.1 million Indians died prematurely from diseases caused by air pollution. On this edition of Global Journalist, we take an in-depth look at India's pollution crisis.
