Julian Assange - Visionary or Villain?

What do the American people deserve to know? That's the question posed in this "Rocky Watch" by Dartmouth Women's, Gender Studies, and Sexuality lecturer Alexis Jetter to free speech attorney Nabiha Syed, CEO of investigative journalism startup The MarkUp, in this discussion about controversial WikiLeaks creator Julian Assange. From the Rockefeller Center for Public Policy and the Social Sciences at Dartmouth.

Week 3 on Common Ground

What are the differences between the VT House and the Senate? How do they work together to get bills passed?  How did redistricting affect Upper Valley voters? What is a "Money Bill" and where do they start? How can folks advocate to their representatives on issues of concern to them? And what happens when a bat gets trapped in the chamber?

VT State Reps Jim Masland and Becca White address these questions and more this week on Common Ground.

Viewer questions are welcome!

Edith Forbes speaks about her novel, Tracking a Shadow: My Lived Experiment with MS, a memoir of the author's twenty-five-year, self-designed experiment with a non-pharmaceutical approach to multiple sclerosis and of the indomitable mother who taught her to meet trouble with active resistance.
