Journey To New Life – Helping Citizens Returning From Prison

Anyone re-entering the community after prison faces many roadblocks to success. But, for those dealing with the additional challenges of mental illness or prior trauma, substance abuse and a history of incarceration, the journey is even more complex. Unfortunately, they had nowhere to turn for help. Journey to New Life was created to be that place. When former offenders, regardless of their circumstances, successfully reintegrate into the community, they are less likely to commit new crimes — or create new victims. So it’s good for everyone.

Host Teresa Wilke talks with Audrey Harrell of Journey to New Life about their efforts to help those returning from prison to overcome the stumbling blocks that would send them back to prison. They will focus on what is called the Triple Barrier and those difficulties that women find most troubling.

Truckers Against Trafficking – Everyday Heroes Needed*

Modern-day slavery, or human trafficking exists whenever people are bought and sold for forced labor or commercial sex. Human trafficking has been reported in all 50 states, and the number of victims in the United States is estimated in the hundreds of thousands. Human trafficking is a booming business and a large percentage of the people trafficked are women and children, many of them forced into the sex industry. They need to be identified and rescued.
Host Beth Pike talks with Laura Cyrus of Truckers Against Trafficking about their mission to educate, equip, empower and mobilize members of the trucking and travel plaza industry to combat domestic sex trafficking. TAT works with law enforcement to provide human trafficking training and working together on the same page with the trucking industry to fight this crime as well as changing the perspective/mentality that someone seen selling commercial sex is “just a prostitute,” toward the reality that this is a possible trafficking victim and someone who needs your help.

This week on the Heartland Labor Forum, we’ll interview Gordon Lafer about his new book which asks what elites are doing with all their new-found power. We’ll review with him The One Percent Solution: How Corporations Are Remaking America One State at a Time. It’s a scary story. Then, we’ll take a look at Kansas City’s urban design from the JC Nichols fountain to the Power and Light district: big structures can define a city. We’ll talk about skyscrapers and how they changed how Kansas Citians worked. Thursday at 6pm, rebroadcast Friday at 5am.


Just how does one transform $260 million into something pretty much worthless? Just ask director Michael Bay, who spent all that dough on the latest Hasbro Toys come to life extravaganza, “Transformers: The Last Knight.” It’s not that you can’t see where the money was spent. After all, the movie provides two hours and forty-eight minutes of special effects overkill that undoubtedly employed a lot of computer animators. But the end result is a mind-numbing mix of robot battles, insipid dialogue and borderline racist and misogynistic hokum that feels totally out of step with the times.

 

Mark Wahlberg is back as inventor Cade Yeager, who, as it turns out, is the chosen one in an epic battle between Earth’s protectors and the Transformers’ home pseudo-planet. By the time the final conflict comes around, you might be wishing for both to blow up.

 

The movie’s only saving grace is a slumming Sir Anthony Hopkins who mostly manages to retain his dignity as he collects his check.

 

The fifth “Transformers” installment isn’t the worst movie ever made, but it may be the biggest waste of money.

 

Also opening this week, “Ripped” is a stoner sci-fi comedy starring Faizon Love about two friends who smoke some super secret CIA weed in the 80s and wake up in the present day. “My Entire High School is Sinking Into the Sea” is an animated satire featuring voice work from Jason Schwartzman, Lena Dunham, Maya Rudolph and Susan Sarandon. “Beatriz at Dinner” is a comic drama set at a dinner party given by an immigrant health care worker where she clashes with a billionaire. Salma Hayek and John Lithgow star. “The Exception,” also known as “The Kaiser’s Last Kiss,” is a WWII thriller about a German solider investigating exiled Kaiser Wilhelm in The Netherlands. Christopher Plummer stars.


Susan and Russ check out “Megan Leavey,” the true story of a Marine and her bomb-sniffing dog who served with distinction in Iraq. Kate Mara (“The Fantastic Four”) takes the title role, supported by Edie Falco, Common, Bradley Whitford and Ramone Rodriguez. It is the first dramatic film from director Gabriela Cowperthwaite, best known for her award-winning documentary, “Blackfish.”
