"Is the pharmaceutical sector such an important part of our economy that – like the fire service, or the police or the army – that these things are just simply too important to leave to the private sector and we should begin to think about bringing it into the public sector?"

– Interview with Leigh Phillips, science writer, on the inherent conflict between the for-profit pharmaceutical industry and urgent public health need for an Ebola vaccine

Private Profit Trumps Public Health in Research for Ebola Vaccine

MP3 Interview with Leigh Phillips, science writer and European Affairs reporter, conducted by Scott Harris

ebola

As the death toll from the Ebola epidemic in West Africa tops 4,500 including 236 health workers, the World Health Organization admitted that it failed to organize an effective response to the deadly virus. The international agency blamed factors ranging from internal politics to poor communication between infectious disease experts and officials at its U.N. headquarters. The WHO has projected that by Dec. 1, the number of new Ebola cases in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone would be 5,000 to 10,000 per week, making the 2014 outbreak of the disease the largest in world history.  Story continues

New Study Links Mountaintop Removal Coal Mining Dust to Lung Cancer

MP3 Interview with Vernon Haltom, director of Coal River Mountain Watch, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

mtr

There's lots of news from southern Appalachia on the fight against mountaintop removal coal mining. On Oct. 1, federal judge Amy Jackson Berman upheld the authority of the Environmental Protection Agency – the EPA – to withdraw a previously issued mountaintop removal mining permit for Arch Coal's Spruce No. 1 mine, because the company's operations violated the Clean Water Act.  Story continues

New Book Chronicles 50 Years of Covert U.S-Cuba Relations and Current Opportunity for Normalization

MP3 Interview with Peter Kornbluh, co-author of the book, "Back Channel to Cuba: The Hidden History of Negotiations Between Washington and Havana", conducted by Scott Harris

cuba

Hostility between the United States and Cuba has been a central feature of the Cold War years – and well beyond. In fact, the U.S. diplomatic isolation and economic embargo against Cuba continues, long after Washington normalized relations with both Communist China and Vietnam, a nation against which the U.S. prosecuted a failed 10-year war costing more than 58,000 lives.  Story continues
