For the penultimate episode of our Parallax Views Halloween series, John Cussans joins us to discuss his book Undead Uprising: Haiti, Horror, and the Zombie Complex. Believe it or not, the zombie wasn't always simply a figure of flesh-ripping, brain eating apocalyptical disease and undead horror. The zombie begins as a figure within Haitian folklore and Voodoo (Voudon) before eventually coming to Western pop culture. John argues that the zombie's migration to the West was underpinned by white Western fears of voodoo-fueled black slave uprisings in Haiti and has evolved from there. In addition, he makes the case that the myths of Haitian voodoo has been used, at least in terms of its imagery and cultural power, as a weapon of control by Western elements such as intelligence agencies (WWII black ops; see: Ian Fleming's Live and Let Die), journalists, white liberals who seek to "carebearize" the religion, and transgressive revolutionaries like George Bataille,  etc. We delve into all these topics as well as the connection between mesmerism and the early zombie in pop culture, Wade Davis' The Serpent and the Rainbow and John's critique of it, thoughts on Frank Wilderson III and Afropessimism, conspiracy theories and Videodrome, the dictatorship of Papa Doc Duvalier, Western "ju ju journalism", Baron Samedi, the Bizango secret society, and much, much more.

You're listening to the Westerly Sun's podcast, where we talk about the best local events, new job postings, obituaries, and more. First, a bit of Rhode Island trivia. Today's trivia is brought to you by Perennial. Perennial's new plant-based drink “Daily Gut & Brain” is a blend of easily digestible nutrients crafted for gut and brain health. A convenient mini-meal, Daily Gut & Brain” is available now at the CVS Pharmacy in Wakefield. Now for some trivia. Did you know that The Watch Hill Lighthouse has served as a nautical beacon for ships since 1745? The original structure was destroyed in a 1781 storm, and plans were discussed to build a new lighthouse to mark the eastern entrance to Fishers Island Sound and to warn mariners of a dangerous reef southwest of Watch Hill. President Thomas Jefferson signed an act to build the lighthouse in 1806, and construction was completed in 1807.  Now for our feature story: A Colorado woman who is applying to take ownership of the Watch Hill Lighthouse wants to use the historic landmark as a symbol to focus attention on poverty and ways to help women become financially stable and astute. Kate Lacroix, who lives in the Boulder area would establish residency here if she is selected to take ownership of the lighthouse. She's applied to the National Park Service on behalf of STOCKED, the nonprofit pantry-building service she founded that teaches women how to save money on their grocery bills and invest the savings. The U.S. General Services Administration announced in May that entities interested in taking ownership of the lighthouse should apply by Thursday. Applications from federal agencies, state and local agencies, nonprofit corporations, educational agencies or community development organizations for educational, park, recreational, cultural or historic preservation purposes will be considered. The Watch Hill Lighthouse Keepers Association, a Westerly-based organization, which has leased the property and acted as its steward since 1986, has also applied. The total number of applicants was unclear late last week. Lacroix has visited the lighthouse twice this year and hired a local structural engineer to gain insight into its condition. Aware that the National Park Services favors applicants with strong community partnerships, she has talked with the owners of local hotels as well as with town and business officials. She plans to continue making the lighthouse and the property accessible and will change admission to generate funds for maintenance and programming. Lacroix said she plans a lending library and has talked with the Gender Studies Department at Brown University about developing an education series focusing on female lighthouse-keepers. She also hopes to develop a storm tools exhibit in the lighthouse museum with the state Coastal Resources Management Council.  Use of the facility for weddings and other ceremonies for a fee is also on the horizon should Lacroix take ownership. Any profits that are realized would be used by STOCKED to offer grants for organizations and causes in Rhode Island that align with its mission. — For more about the coronavirus pandemic, the recovery, and the latest on all things in and around Westerly, head over to westerlysun.com. There are a lot of businesses in our community that are hiring right now, so we're excited to tell you about some new job listings. Today's Job posting comes from Crimmins Residential Staffing in Westerly. A couple in Watch Hill is looking for a part-time housekeeper. Pay is $35 per hour and you'll work there 3 days per week in season and one day per week during the off-season.

Birchell. He was the beloved husband of Helen Birchell for 73 years. Born in New London, Bob graduated from Stonington schools. Afterwards he started employment at Electric Boat, training as a welder. Then, in 1944 he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and went on to serve in WWII as a Carpenter's Mate on a combat ship in the Pacific Theater. When in the third wave on Iwo Jima, his ship took prisoners aboard after landings. Bob was honorably discharged from the Naval Service in June of 1946 after being awarded several medals and a letter of commendation. Upon returning to civilian life, Bob met the love of his life, Helen. Together they had six children. After seven years as a self-employed welder, Bob returned to work at Electric Boat and continued there until he retired as a Ship Superintendent in 1983. He then focused on helping people by doing odd jobs, all while keeping up with his golf game. Bob and Helen loved to travel and one of their favorite vacation spots was Marco Island, Florida. They loved it there so much that in 1984 they bought a condo and became "snowbirds". In 2009, they became full-time Marco Island residents. Thank you for taking a moment with us today to remember and celebrate Bob's life. That's it for today, we'll be back next time with more!

Sign up for our mailing list! We also have t-shirts and mugs with our logo! Don't forget our Kickstarter! I can't believe it reached its funding goal THE FIRST DAY! We're getting so close to Halloween! This week we'll learn about Mothman! Is it a moth? Is it a ghostly entity from another world? Is it a bird? (hint: it's probably a bird) Sandhill cranes (not mothmen): A Canada goose (not mothman): A great bustard (not mothman): A green heron (definitely not mothman but look at those big cute feets and that telescoping neck): A barn owl's eyes reflecting red (photo taken from Frank's Barn Owls and Mourning Doves, which has lots of lovely pictures): Barn owls look like strange little people while standing up straight: Barn owls got legs: All owls got legs: Show transcript: Welcome to Strange Animals Podcast. I'm your host, Kate Shaw. This week for monster month, let's cover a spooky monster with a silly name, mothman! We'll go over the facts as clearly as possible and see if we can figure out what kind of creature mothman might be. First, though, a quick reminder that our Kickstarter is still going on if you're listening to this before Nov. 5, 2021! There's a link in the show notes if you want to go look at it. We actually reached our funding goal on the very first day, so thank you all so much for backing the project, sharing the project on social media, or just putting up with me spamming you about it all month. Now, on to mothman. As far as anyone can tell, it all started in 1966, specifically November 12, outside of Clendenin, West Virginia, in the eastern United States. Five men were digging a grave in a cemetery outside of town when one of them saw something big fly low across the trees and right over their heads. The witness thought it looked like a man with wings, but with red eyes and an estimated wingspan of 10 feet, or 3 meters. This definitely happened, even though it sounds like the opening scene of a scary movie. That story didn't come to light until after the next sighting hit the newspapers and caused a lot of excitement. The second sighting took place only three days later near Point Pleasant, West Virginia, in the McClintic Wildlife Area. Locals call it the TNT area, since explosives were stored there during WWII. The TNT area is about 70 miles, or over 110 km, away from Clendenin, which has led to a lot of people discounting the gravedigger's sighting. We'll come back to that later, though. On Nov. 15, 1966, two young couples decided to go out driving. They were bored and it was a cold, clear Tuesday night. Remember, this was the olden days when there weren't as many things to do as there are today. You could watch TV, but only if there was something you wanted to watch on one of the three TV stations available in the United States. If you wanted to watch a movie, you had to go to a movie theater, and so on. Anyway, Steve Mallette and his wife Mary and their friends Roger Scarberry and his wife Linda went out driving that Tuesday night. Toward midnight, as they drove through the TNT area, their car came over a hill and they saw a huge creature in front of them. Some 35 years later, in July 2001, Linda gave an interview to the author of the book I used as my main reference for this episode, called Mothman: The Facts Behind the Legend. She mentioned details that aren't in any of the newspaper articles from 1966, or that give a better explanation of what happened than the articles did. There's always a possibility that after 35 years, her memory wasn't accurate, so I'm mostly going by the newspaper articles for my information, but she does mention something interesting in that interview. She says this about the very first sighting of the creature: “We had just topped a hill in the TNT area, and when the headlights of our car hit it, it looked directly at us, as if it was scared. It had one of its wings caught in a guide wire near a s...

On September 1, 2020, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention took a step into nationwide housing policy, and issued a nationwide ban on evictions. With the order, the federal agency invoked a little-known WWII-era statute that empowered the agency to “make and enforce such regulations” that “are necessary to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of communicable diseases from foreign countries into the States or possessions, or from one State or possession into any other State or possession.” The agency asserted that evictions presented a unique and unacceptable danger to the public in light of Covid-19.CDC’s order was challenged almost immediately by a variety of public interest groups on a variety of statutory and constitutional grounds. At the heart of these challenges was an objection to the agency’s determination that property owners could be forced to turn over their real property to tenants who refused to pay rent.The order was, in months-long increments, in existence for most of the past year. Meanwhile, several district courts and the Sixth Circuit invalidated the moratorium, but only with respect to individual litigants. After one trip to the Supreme Court, another extension, and a final stop back at the Supreme Court, the moratorium ended. However, related rules issued by agencies like the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, as well as local eviction moratoria, continue around the country.This litigation update by Caleb Kruckenberg of the New Civil Liberties Alliance, which filed the first challenge to the CDC order, discusses the origins of the moratorium, including relevant Congressional action (and inaction), the legal challenges to the moratorium, recent and possible future extensions of the moratorium, and why this case was bound for resolution by the Supreme Court.

Dan McKee's home, where protesters were rallying against the state's vaccine mandate for health care workers. The two people arrested last week were charged with disorderly conduct, obstruction and resisting arrest. Police did not provide further details about the disturbance or the reason for the arrests. McKee announced in August that all health care workers would be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

After seven years as a self-employed welder, Bob returned to work at Electric Boat and continued there until he retired as a Ship Superintendent in 1983. He then focused on helping people by doing odd jobs, all while keeping up with his golf game. Bob and Helen loved to travel and one of their favorite vacation spots was Marco Island, FL. They loved it there so much that in 1984 they bought a condo and became "snowbirds". In 2009, they became full-time Marco Island residents and in 2017, Bob and Helen moved to Naples, FL. Besides his wife and children, Bob is survived by his sister, grandsons, granddaughters, great-granddaughters. He also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Welcome to TLG and to our series of interviews from the 2021 Bournemouth Air Festival. There are those whose sole reason for attending an airshow is to watch and hear the old piston-engined fighters and bombers from WWII, and indeed few could argue with their reasoning. But for others, and I suspect the majority of airshow-goers, one of the greatest thrills is seeing the Typhoon being put through its paces, accompanied by the crackling roar of its twin jets rasping through the air. RIAT aside, there's not a lot of heavy metal at British airshows these days, so long may the Typhoon continue to thrill us. We caught up with 2021 Display pilot Flt Lt James Sainty, whose spectacular exhibition of speed,  power and agility creates a sensory overload.

In the 1960s, the radical youth of Western Europe's New Left rebelled against the democratic welfare state and their parents' antiquated politics of reform. It was not the first time an upstart leftist movement was built on the ruins of the old. New Lefts: The Making of a Radical Tradition (Princeton University Press, 2021) traces the history of neoleftism from its antifascist roots in the first half of the twentieth century, to its postwar reconstruction in the 1950s, to its explosive reinvention by the 1960s counterculture. Terence Renaud demonstrates why the left in Europe underwent a series of internal revolts against the organizational forms of established parties and unions. He describes how small groups of militant youth such as New Beginning in Germany tried to sustain grassroots movements without reproducing the bureaucratic, hierarchical, and supposedly obsolete structures of Social Democracy and Communism. Neoleftist militants experimented with alternative modes of organization such as councils, assemblies, and action committees. However, Renaud reveals that these same militants, decades later, often came to defend the very institutions they had opposed in their youth. Providing vital historical perspective on the challenges confronting leftists today, this book tells the story of generations of antifascists, left socialists, and anti-authoritarians who tried to build radical democratic alternatives to capitalism and kindle hope in reactionary times.

During the early days of WWII, the Route 66 community of Miami welcomed over 2000 British Cadets as part of a training program to prepare pilots for combat over their homeland of England.   While most of these young cadets returned home to intense fighting and a country already ravaged by war, there were a few that never made it back home to their native soil. They were tragically killed while training in the states and have been forever laid to rest along Route 66 in the community of Miami, Oklahoma.   Laying these young men to rest on foreign soil attracted the attention of a local, Francis Mae Hill, who would over the next 40 years provide both flowers and prayers for these young men.  Mrs. Hill knew the family members would not be able to visit their loved ones, so she voluntarily tended to their graves and promised family members back home that they would not be forgotten.  She often considered the young men her boys, and her last wish was to be buried alongside her boys.  King George VI would later award Mrs. Hill The King's Award for Service. Join host Anthony Arno as he talks with Nancy Bro, office manager at the GAR Cemetery in Miami, OK, about the life of these cadets and other notables buried in Miami.  Highlights of the conversation include: SHOW NOTES Origin and network of GAR Cemeteries Cemetery Tourism as an upcoming industry The US agrees to a proposed program to train British in the US The Spartan Flying School Keeping the operation top secret in the early days A sudden influx of British men with funny accents gathering in Miami- what's going on?

Not many people have heard about Alfred Hubbard but he was one of the most intriguing people from the 20th Century. His story begins in 1919 when he made his first newspaper appearance with the exciting announcement that he had created a perpetual-motion machine that harnessed energy from the Earth's atmosphere. He would soon publicly demonstrate this device by using it to power a boat on Seattle's Lake Union, though, at the time, heavy suspicions were cast about the legitimacy of his claims. From there, he joined forces with Seattle's top bootlegger and, together, they built one of Seattle's first radio stations. He was then involved in a top secret WWII operation, and even played a role in the Manhattan Project. In the 1950s, he was one of the first people to try a new drug by the name of LSD, and helped pioneer psychedelic therapy. He was known as “The Johnny Appleseed of LSD,” as he introduced the drug to everyone from Aldous Huxley to early computer engineers in what is now known as Silicon Valley. He was a fraud, to be sure, but may have also been a genius. Famous California psychiatrist Oscar Janiger once said, "Nothing of substance has ever been written about Al Hubbard, and probably nothing ever should." And yet, there is little dispute regarding the fascinating scope of his adventurous life. To explore his story is Brad Holden, author of the book “Seattle Mystic: Alfred Hubbard – Inventor, Bootlegger, and Psychedelic Pioneer”.

This latest episode in the ‘Dior Talks' podcast series broaches the topic of heritage. In it biographer and journalist Justine Picardie speaks with Maria Grazia Chiuri, Creative Director of Dior women's collections, about the parallels between Monsieur Dior's burst of creativity brought on by his emergence from the trauma and privations of war and the moment in history through which the world is currently living. The importance of the founding couturier's relationship with his younger sister Catherine - coincidentally the subject of Picardie's new book ‘Miss Dior: A Story of Courage and Couture' - is explored as more than simply a familial relationship. Instead, the pair discuss how so many aspects of Monsieur Dior's creativity and the long-established House codes that resulted can trace their source to this sibling bond. The fortune-telling and tarot cards that would shape so many of Monsieur Dior's decisions - and inspire the House's various creative directors, right up to Maria Grazia Chiuri today - grew from an initial fascination with the divinatory arts to a key source of comfort and hope when Catherine was imprisoned during WWII and all contact with her vanished. After she was freed and found, these emotions would be translated into the New Look, a sartorial reflection of optimism that produced extraordinarily architectural clothes that balanced an idea of protection with one that celebrated feminine and floral beauty. A keen gardener, Catherine would go on to cultivate flowers in the south of France, near her brother's summer estate, that would provide ingredients for several of the House's famous fragrances. This fascinating exchange, delving into the overlapping and layering of occurrences and inspirations, pulls back the curtain to plumb the hidden and unnoticed depths of the Dior heritage story.

Scott interviews former CIA Officer John Kiriakou about a recent article he wrote. Kiriakou was personally involved in the 2002 capture of Abu Zubaydah in Pakistan. At the time, the CIA believed Zubaydah to be Al Qaeda's third highest-ranking member. In truth, he was simply a logistician. Still, the Bush Administration used Zubaydah to make it look like dangerous terrorists were being captured and were handing over information thanks to “enhanced interrogation techniques.” Scott and Kiriakou observe that the Americans executed Japanese soldiers after WWII for using those very same techniques on American POWs. Kiriakou details the torture that Abu Zubaydah has been put through since his capture, all without a single charge being brought against him. Scott and Kiriakou also discuss other victims of the torture program, some of whom were killed without even being charged. Finally, Kiriakou explains the legal action Zubaydah is attempting to take against certain CIA contractors.  Discussed on the show: “Supreme Court to hear whether Abu Zubaydah's torture is ‘secret'” (Responsible Statecraft) A Question of Torture by Alfred McCoy Murder at Camp Delta by Joseph Hickman  John Kiriakou is a former CIA officer and author of The Convenient Terrorist: Two Whistleblowers' Stories of Torture, Terror, Secret Wars, and CIA Lies and Doing Time Like A Spy.

Scott interviews former CIA Officer John Kiriakou about a recent article he wrote. Kiriakou was personally involved in the 2002 capture of Abu Zubaydah in Pakistan. At the time, the CIA believed Zubaydah to be Al Qaeda's third highest-ranking member. In truth, he was simply a logistician. Still, the Bush Administration used Zubaydah to make it look like dangerous terrorists were being captured and were handing over information thanks to “enhanced interrogation techniques.” Scott and Kiriakou observe that the Americans executed Japanese soldiers after WWII for using those very same techniques on American POWs. Kiriakou details the torture that Abu Zubaydah has been put through since his capture, all without a single charge being brought against him. Scott and Kiriakou also discuss other victims of the torture program, some of whom were killed without even being charged. Finally, Kiriakou explains the legal action Zubaydah is attempting to take against certain CIA contractors.  Discussed on the show: “Supreme Court to hear whether Abu Zubaydah's torture is ‘secret'” (Responsible Statecraft) A Question of Torture by Alfred McCoy Murder at Camp Delta by Joseph Hickman  John Kiriakou is a former CIA officer and author of The Convenient Terrorist: Two Whistleblowers' Stories of Torture, Terror, Secret Wars, and CIA Lies and Doing Time Like A Spy. He is the host of Loud and Clear on Sputnik Radio. Follow him on Twitter @JohnKiriakou.

Did a soldier from WWII return to help an active duty solder survive an attack?  Here is a preview of the story.  “I rolled under the hummer and got up trying to open the passenger door. This one opened. So, since it was burning, I got the Marine in that seat out stopped put a tourniquet on his right leg started back to a friendly area for a med evac. I went back for the driver. When I got there, I got hit two more times. But I managed to drag this kid back. I went back for my bag I got hit again. I was down for the count.  I woke up to being shook and then a sharp slap. It was my dad. He was wearing WWII Marine combat uniform. He told me that it was not my time to die, and he helped me up and helped me back to our lines.
