Global Journalist: Yemen Crisis Fueled by War, Outsiders

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 02:38:10 +0000

The civil war in Yemen has garnered many superlatives since it began in force in March 2015. It's generated the world's most dire humanitarian crisis and the largest cholera outbreak in a single year ever recorded – even Forbes ranked its economy as the world's worst . Yet despite a conflict that has left 7 million on the brink of starvation, there is little end in sight to fighting between Iranian-backed Houthi rebels and the country's Saudi-backed government. Attempts to spur a U.N. investigation into war crimes committed by both sides have so far failed. Complicating efforts is support for the Saudi-backed government by the U.S., U.K. and France. On this edition of Global Journalist, we discuss Yemen's humanitarian crisis, the collapse of independent media in the country and the role of outsiders in fueling a conflict that has generated startling levels of human suffering.

GEORGE KENNEDY: MU's Climate is Challenged, But Changing

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 23:01:07 +0000

You’ve read, I hope, the Missourian’s excellent coverage this week of the “climate survey” that was conducted a year ago to assess attitudes and behaviors of students, faculty and staff throughout the University system. If you have, you know that the findings revealed fairly high levels of discomfort among students and discontent among faculty and staff at MU. Only two-thirds of the nearly 5,000 MU students who responded to the survey said they felt comfortable on campus. Forty percent of freshmen and 44 percent of sophomores were seriously considering leaving. Sixty percent of faculty respondents and about half the staff said they were serious about seeking other jobs. Minority, female and gay respondents were especially unhappy. Read the complete column online at the Missourian.

Talking Politics: Police Chief Ken Burton Gives His Take on Racial Desparity in Traffic Stops

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 21:56:46 +0000

Traffic stop data released by the Missouri Attorney General's office shows a disparity between black and white drivers in Columbia, but not everyone agrees as to what the numbers mean. Black drivers in Columbia were pulled over at a rate almost four times higher than white drivers in 2016. Some local groups, like Race Matters, Friends, say this is clear evidence of racial profiling and called for changes in the police department. Some have even called for the resignation of Police Chief Ken Burton, who has voiced skepticism about the traffic stop data. The Columbia Missourian’s Katherine Reed and Noah McGee spoke in-depth with Burton to get his take on the data and how the department can be improved.

Intersection - United and Divided: Stories on Bridging the Urban-Rural Divide

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 15:09:14 +0000

Today, we’re bringing you United and Divided , a series of stories on bridging the urban-rural divide. It's reported by Harvest Public Media . In the wake of the 2016 presidential election one thing is clear: rural America and urban America see things differently. In this series of profiles, Harvest Public Media reporters introduce us to our fellow Americans and examine the issues that they hold dear. We re-discover the ties that bind us and learn more about the lines that divide us. And through these voices, we come to know Americans just a little bit better. Reporters from Missouri, Colorado, Iowa and Nebraska explore topics causing rift in the country, and how those differences define the future. They looked at schools, religion, immigration and trade policy.

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 22:51:16 +0000

The Health and Resources Services Administration has awarded $3.9 million to twenty-four health centers in Missouri, according to a press release issued Friday. There are a total of twenty-nine health centers in Missouri. The grant is a part of the Access Increases for Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (AIMS) awards. The total amount was determined by Congress in the Omnibus Budget Act earlier this year. The grant is a part of the HRSA's five point strategy to fight opioid abuse across the country. The strategy includes advancing better practices for pain management and improving access to treatment and recovery services.

Global Journalist: Europe's Immigration Quagmire

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 14:15:44 +0000

Back in 2015, the immigration crisis in Europe was in headlines all over the world. Since then the numbers of people crossing the by sea to the continent has declined from more than 1 million annually to just 126,000 through early September of this year, according to the U.N.'s migration agency. But many problems remain unresolved. Not least for the tens of thousands of migrants who arrived in Europe over the past few years and still find themselves in legal limbo. On this edition of Global Journalist, we look at Europe's tortured efforts to address the problem, and get an up close view at conditions for migrants in France and Greece.
