Mendocino Works — Economic Assistance After the Fires, Wednesday 18 October 7 p.m.Mendocino Works, our program about innovation, investment and development in the Mendocino economy, takes a detailed look at government, non-profit and private sector disaster relief following the devastating wildfires.

Jacob Turner

On this week's edition of “Point & Click Radio,” the long-running KZYX computer show, Jim Heid and guest Toby Malina discussed many aspects of digital disaster preparedness.

This week’s wildfires have exposed weaknesses in the communications grid, from overwhelmed phone circuits to damaged or destroyed cell towers. Digital tools, including email and social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, have proven their value for sending and receiving information. But they’ve also been prone to inaccuracies.

KZYX was delighted to host a studio performance and interview on Thursday 21 September with Caitlin Belem and Terrence Rosnagle, a duo version of the Seattle Latin-Brazilian band Maracujá. Programmer Beth Lang interviewed the pair during her World Tour program.

From their website: "Maracujá takes you on a journey around Latin America through music. From fiery Cuban son and Brazilian samba-funk to soothing bossa nova and wistful boleros, Maracujá plays music for dancing, music for listening, music to make you smile."

You're under arrest! Those are words no one EVER wants to hear. Who's getting busted by the Sheriff and who's not under the county's new medical cannabis cultivation ordinance?

This month Ana Loreto Rojas joins Cal Winslow to co-host “Talking about California.” Together they are presenting a special series marking Hispanic Heritage Month focusing on today’s crisis: The Trump presidency and its attacks on millions of workers and their families. This attack is best symbolized by Trump's vilification of Mexicans – and by implication all Latinos – and by his revoking of President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program known as DACA and his supporters’ racist chant, “Build that wall.”

Equifax, one of the three major consumer credit reporting agencies, said on 7 September that hackers had gained access to company data that potentially compromised sensitive information for 143 million American consumers, including Social Security numbers and driver’s license numbers.
