Closed captions

Arkansas
Feedback:
I am hearing impaired and I enjoy Public Broadcast's programming because it is unique and educational. However I rely heavily on clear captions. Recently the captions have been garbled. This is very disappointing. Can you please correct this so I can continue to benefit, along with other hearing impaired patrons. Thanks

Public Radio Listeners & Staff Creating New Sports For Uninterrupted Play During Pandemics Like Covid-19

New Hampshire
Feedback:

With one report of the average weekly listeners being over 19 million, why not create a program for listeners to solve the global challenge of playing sports uninterrupted during pandemics like Covid-19 to help the world with emotional, physical, and economic wellbeing? It can be done. Do an internet search for: "New Gender-Neutral Sports That Keep Players Separate." These New sports should 1. Keep players separate at least 6 feet. 2. Have no head or hand contact with shared equipment. 3. Be adaptable for those with a disability. Consider that two schools in Massachusetts had a recent teachers' strike keeping home over 13,000 students. If each student worked just one hour on creating a new sport, that would have been over 1 year project time in just one day. If only 100,000 Public Radio Listeners and Staff out of the more than 19 million worked on creating new sports, that would be over 11 years of project time in just one day. Society missed the opportunity to create these new sports during the 1918 Spanish Flu and the 2005 Bird Flu. Then in 2020, Covid-19 showed the world why these new sports are needed to allow society to be together in physical activity while maintaining social distance. It can be done. The hope is that society will create these new sports and or modify current sports before the next pandemics like Covid-19.

Morning Edition

Ohio
Feedback:

You know, some of my friends get angry at NPR’s quotidian promotion of left-wing narratives without pushback or skepticism, such as this morning’s piece on crime by far-left activist Sandhya Dirks. But I, on the contrary, believe that NPR helps the Right. NPR is almost a caricature of a certain type of urban leftist with a big megaphone. Voters and consumers may be as dumb as Dirks and the like implicitly believe, but they know when they are being condescended to, so keep up the segments telling them that issues of violent crime, inflation, illegal immigration, a general public anomie, etc., are the result of their gullibility and imagination, and ‘racist’ as well. In large parts of this country, now, such products of the legacy media help turn swing voters, such as those fabled ‘suburban wimen’, toward pulling the lever for the GOP.

I think Don Henley can be the next vice president of the United States of America. Don has experience as an elected official and is a veteran of the army special services in the Americas. He can write the lyrics to his speeches and he can write the theme songs to his traveling election campaign. He has recent and relevant experience.

political bias

Enough! NPR’s political bias is so skewed, it has become intolerable.

There is a well known ‘game’ in politics called, “Lets play Democrats and Republican.”

My older brother just died at 83. At no time in his entire, adult life did he ever vote for a candidate, although he dutifully voted in every election. He signed over, carte-blanche, his entire voting rights to the Republican Party at twenty one and never looked back.

If the powers that be can get everyone playing the ‘game’, they can hide a tone of unqualified, corrupt, and special-interest candidates from prying eyes.

And your stations are right in there with the best of them playing the ‘game’.

Enough already! You are suppose to be autonomous and free to point out the corrupt practices of the political parties, not digging-in to help them.

If and when Judy Woodruff retires, please consider Geoff Bennett as the next host to replace her. His weekend coverage is very good, he has a pleasant voice and would be the best choice. I'm sorry that Hari is no longer around. He would also be a good choice as a host for the News Hour.

I watched the interview with Judy Woodruff tonight on 60 minutes. I found it interesting. However, having had a bout with thyroid cancer years ago myself, I was concerned about the knot on her neck. Please have her check it out with her Dr. Hopefully, it is nothing to be concerned about.

WHAT IS THE REAL HUMAN POPULATION on EARTH? WHEN WILL PBS EVER DO A DOCUMENTARY on this guy. You could put it on late at night.

Maryland
Feedback:

FROM CONTACT REPORT 825 ------- AT futureofmankind.co.uk

The whole nature of the planet is being destroyed by the machinations of overpopulation, which is growing ever larger – it is mendaciously claimed scientifically that there are currently around 8 billion, whereas there are already more than 9.2 billion.

This, while the Earth at its peak was designed to support a total population of no more than 2 billion. But the human beings of the Earth have proliferated in terms of their billionfold offspring and have multiplied to such an extent that they have become a threat to the continued existence of the whole planet as well as to the whole of nature and its fauna and flora.

As a result, the extinction of many life-forms has increased in number, so that now every year more than 1,000 genera and species of plants, animals, creatures, snakes, amphibians, fish, birds, bees, butterflies, beetles, ants, termites, wasps, hornets and all kinds of other thousand-fold life-forms disappear from the entire surface of the earth, from the waters and mountains, from the skies and from the soil, and are thus eradicated. In principle, demonstrations against environmental pollution and against environmental destruction as well as against climate change and global warming etc. are of no use, because in reality and unstoppably the huge mass of humanity resp. overpopulation continues to grow uncontrolled, whereby the pollution and destruction of the planet, of nature as well as its fauna and flora is rampant and can --PTAAH
