Rumble - Why More Cops in Schools - Instead of Counselors?

Ron Meyer, Red Alert Politics & Chuck Rocha, Solidarity Strategies & Alex Pfeiffer, The Daily Caller join Thom. Nearly 850,000 high school students don't have access to a school counselor if they're facing academic or emotional problems. At the same time nearly 1.6 million students go to schools where they do have access to law enforcement! That's right - according to data from the US Education Department - 24 percent of elementary schools and 42 percent of high schools had a law enforcement officer on staff - and more than half of the schools that were majority black or latino had an officer to patrol campus. So why are we spending money on cops in schools - instead of on school counselors? Isn't this just proof of how effective the school to prison pipeline is?

Feds Ok Off-Shore Fracking... Are They Nuts?

Tim Donaghy PhD, Greenpeace USA joins Thom. As his time in office winds down - President Obama is starting to focus on legacy issues. One of them is global warming. Of all the presidents in American history - President Obama has arguably done the most to fight global warming. Among other things - he's put in place the Clean Power Plan - helped negotiate the Paris Climate Deal - and after some prodding by activists - rejected the Keystone XL pipeline. These are all good things - which makes his recent decision to expand offshore drilling in the Arctic all the more distressing - especially given the findings in a new report from Greenpeace. That report has found that the Obama administration's offshore drilling plan would "lead to a net increase in global carbon emissions of about 850 million metric tons of carbon dioxide... equivalent to the annual emissions of 3.6 million passenger vehicles over fifty years."

Kevin Kamps, Beyond Nuclear joins Thom.

TPP/TTIP Will Kill Climate Change Progress...

William Waren, Friends of the Earth joins Thom. President Obama has said on mutiple occasions that the Trans-Pacific Partnership - the TPP - is the kind of trade deal we should aim for. According to him - it gives the U.S. the chance to write the rules of global trade with "stronger labor and environmental standards." But is that really the case? More than 450 environmental organizations say "NO"- and on Monday they sent a letter to Congress urging it to reject the TPP and its sister trade deal - the TTIP - specifically because of the threats they pose to the environment.

What happens in a musician's brain when they play a song?

Let's get geeky on music. Ever wonder what's happening in a musician's brain when they're actually playing a song?

What about when a musician starts improvising - starts playing music directly "off the cuff"?
