Dawn Of The Drones: Are We Ready?

Unmanned Aerial Systems – better known as drones – are swarming in popularity. The Federal Aviation Administration expects drone sales to climb from 2.5 million in 2016, to seven million in 2020. That’s a lot of drones in the air. As KLCC’s Brian Bull reports, some hope safety keeps pace with all of the enthusiasm.

We first heard about Carol and Willie Fowler's generosity from our friends at Here & Now late last week.

Now, the feel-good story of how they turned something sad into something glad is spreading across the Web.

ABC News describes what happened earlier this month in Atlanta this way:

Scientists and government representatives are meeting in Stockholm this week to produce the latest high-level review of climate change. It's thousands of pages of material, and if it's done right, it should harbor very few surprises.

That's because it's supposed to compile what scientists know — and what they don't — about climate change. And that's left some scientists to wonder whether these intensive reviews are still the best way to go.

First Listen: Moby, 'Innocents'

Sep 24, 2013

The story of Moby's 11th album is one of collaboration: Innocents, his first full-length recording with an outside producer (Mark Stent, who's worked alongside virtually everyone in pop), finds the versatile multi-instrumentalist recruiting an impressive assortment of guest vocalists.

The Current Presents: Chvrches

Sep 24, 2013

The Scottish synth-pop trio Chvrches recently made its second visit to Minneapolis in three months. While in town, its members stopped by The Current's studios in St. Paul to perform songs from The Bones of What You Believe — including this intimate version of the rousing anthem "Recover."

Update at 3:07 p.m. ET. Leaders Will Not Meet:

After intense speculation that the United States and Iran were on the verge of making history today by coordinating a meeting between President Obama and new Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, there came word this afternoon that the two would not meet during the ceremonies surrounding the opening session of the U.N. General Assembly.

Just a week before the federal government could shut down if no agreement is reached to fund it past the end of September, it's anyone's guess whether Democrats and Republicans will avoid plunging over this particular cliff.

More certain, however, is that if a shutdown happens over Obamacare and Republicans wind up taking the heat, many GOP fingers of blame will point squarely at Sen. Ted Cruz.

The Texas Republican will likely become the face of the 2013 shutdown, just as Newt Gingrich became the poster boy of two government shutdowns of the mid-1990s.

Small Businesses: Big Concerns And High Hopes

Sep 24, 2013

Safe to say, Americans love small business. Or at least the Idea of Small Business.

President Obama once told owners: "What you share is an entrepreneurial spirit, a tireless work ethic and a simple hope for something better that lies at the heart of the American ideal. Businesses like yours are the engines of job growth in America."

First, it was Washington and Colorado. Now, Oregon is in the running to legalize marijuana.

Halie Loren has just released a new recording in the U.S. called "Simply Love". It has already reached #1 on the Japanese billboard Jazz chart, having been released there some time ago. Ms. Loren visited the KLCC studio to play with her trio with Matt Treder on piano, and Mark Schneider on bass. She plays a CD release party this Saturday night at the Wildish Theatre in Springfield.

When Staci Freeman and her sister Jami Valentine first took in a child ravaged by war in Afghanistan last year, Arefa was a 6-year-old in Hello Kitty shoes, who quickly turned the daily routine of changing her head bandages into a counting game.

When Arefa arrived in Los Angeles from central Afghanistan, three years after being injured, Freeman says, third-degree burns mapped her body, and her head was an open bleeding wound.

"When she came, she came crying and in pain and her head hurt," Freeman says.
