Part visionary, part mad scientist, and absolute genius, Tesla should be as famous as Edison - but he´s been largely forgotten. Kurt talks with Samantha Hunt about her novel The Invention of Everything Else.Then, Tesla´s biggest innovation was introducing alternating current as the standard for modern electric power, breaking Thomas Edison´s monopoly on DC power. Mike Daisey is an author and monologuist who performs a one-man show about Tesla, and he tells us how AC/DC isn´t just a band.Next, a lot of us learned that Guglielmo Marconi invented radio, but Nikola Tesla transmitted electromagnetic waves before Marconi - the Supreme Court decided the case in 1943.After that, Tesla was a flamboyant character who held salons where he played fast and loose with technology. Mike Daisey tells the story of Tesla, Mark Twain, and an X-ray gun.Following that, Samantha Hunt describes the turning point in Tesla´s life when he began acting like a mad scientist, almost taking a page from the movies. And biologist Vincent Pieribone thinks that Hollywood´s most dangerous fantasy about ´´mad scientists´´ is that scientists have any power at all.Then, Mike Daisey completes his life story of Tesla with this tale about the scientist´s real Dr. Strangelove moment: inventing the ultimate superweapon. But did it work?Next, much of science today is grant-dependent and discourages dreamy, out-of-box thinking - because who wants to fund mistakes? Samantha Hunt warns Kurt that Tesla´s visionary approach to science is all but extinct.And finally, all over the country, amazing science is happening without institutional or government funding. Matt Cavnar talked to inventors in garages, basements, a Quonset hut, even NASA´s Jet Propulsion Lab to see what home inventors are doing in the 21st century. [Broadcast Date: November 29, 2008] 1.

In 1962, Arthur Beauchamp is about to undertake his first murder trial. His defendant is Gabriel Swift, a politically active young aboriginal accused of killing Professor Dermot Mulligan, a former mentor to both men. Arthur becomes increasingly convinced that the police evidence against Gabriel is not only flimsy, but suspiciously convenient in a system - and a society - with entrenched racist assumptions. But as the case progresses, Arthur develops an uncomfortable sense that Gabriel is not telling him the whole truth. And to make matters worse, the green young lawyer is up against a wily veteran of the courts and a clever but biased judge. Five decades later, Arthur remains haunted by the case. Finally, he is compelled to emerge from retirement to try to complete what he began all those years ago. He must pass through some murky and long-repressed personal territory along the way, but the journey ultimately offers hope for the peace of redemption. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steve Scherf.

This month´s cover story takes a look at organic light emitters that can enable better electronic displays. Our second article explores how sound waves powerfully shaped the early universe. Then, in another Cosmology article, we see how leakage of gravity might cause cosmic acceleration. In the fourth article, new insights into shock could help treat the thousands of people who die from it every year. Finally, criminologists are on the case of the unsolved crime decline. 1.

Scientists and public health officials are warning that a strain of bird flu known as H5N1 has the potential to cause a worldwide pandemic. In the worst-case scenario, an outbreak could kill millions upon millions of people. In addition, the World Health Organization warns that the global economic impact would be enormous. While all this is still just a possibility, what is known is that many countries, including the United States, are not prepared for a major pandemic. In this special report from the pages of Scientific American, you´ll hear about the latest efforts to stop a pandemic before it happens, and to treat the sick if it happens. You´ll also hear about some fascinating new research into the catastrophic ´´Great Influenza´´ of 1918, and its relevance for all of us today. The articles in this special report are: ´´Preparing for the Worst´´ by The Editors of Scientific American. (Originally published: Nov. 2005) ´´Preparing For a Pandemic´´ by W. Wayt Gibbs and Christine Soares. (Originally published: Nov. 2005) ´´Capturing a Killer Flu Virus´´ by Jeffery Taubenberger, Ann Reid, and Thomas Fanning. (Originally published: Jan. 2005) 1.

A Case Study of Community Radio Policy in Bangladesh: Faroha Suhrawardy
This book covers the important aspects involved in making cognitive radio devices portable, mobile and green, while also extending their service life. At the same time, it presents a variety of established theories and practices concerning cognitive radio from academia and industry. Cognitive radio can be utilized as a backbone communication medium for wireless devices. To effectively achieve its commercial application, various aspects of quality of service and energy management need to be addressed. The topics covered in the book include energy management and quality of service provisioning at Layer 2 of the protocol stack from the perspectives of medium access control, spectrum selection, and self-coexistence for cognitive radio networks.

Donald Sinden stars as eccentric amateur sleuth Gideon Fell in these two full-cast BBC radio dramatisations of stories by John Dickson Carr. One of the preeminent detectives of crime fiction´s golden age, Dr Gideon Fell is stout, jovial and fond of beer and band music. However, he also possesses a razor-sharp mind and extraordinary powers of deduction, which are frequently put to the test as he is called upon to solve seemingly impossible crimes. Created by the master of the locked-room mystery, John Dickson Carr, Dr Fell appeared in 23 novels, several short stories and plays and numerous radio adaptations. These two dramas, first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1997, see him embroiled in two inexplicable cases that have the police baffled. In The Hollow Man, two murders are committed by someone who appears to be both invisible and lighter than air, while in The House in Gallows Lane, the peaceful English countryside of 1936 is disrupted by an alarming fortune-teller - and a mysterious death. These thrilling dramatisations star Donald Sinden as Gideon Fell with John Hartley as Hadley. Classic Radio Crime: presenting vintage detectives for your investigation! 1. Language: English.
