Partners in Health Video

This Sunday via the airwaves we’ll be asking you to Stand With Haiti by making a donation to Partners In Health. Partners In Health has been working on the ground in Haiti for over 20 years. They urgently need your support to help those affected by the recent earthquake. The organization also works to bring modern medical care to poor communities in eight other countries around the world. The work of PIH has three goals: to care for their patients, to alleviate the root causes of disease in their communities, and to share lessons learned around the world. Based in Boston, PIH employs more than 11,000 people worldwide, including doctors, nurses and community health workers. The vast majority of PIH staff are local nationals based in the communities they serve.

Make a donation now and we’ll add it to our totals on Sunday!

Watch a recent video about the work being done in Haiti.

On the off chance that these embedded movies aren’t working here then here are a couple of links:

Live Lunch Video

So things have been a little wonky with the Live Lunch videos lately, but have no fear we are working on it. The last three Live Lunch guests will have a video, there have just been a few technical hurdles that tripped us up. As soon as all the cogs and wheels start spinning again they will be posted in a blog here and on youtube and facebook, just like normal. Thanks for your support and patience.

The Nation’s number one team, the Texas Longhorns, fell this week to Kansas State, leaving only one undefeated team in the land: The Wildcats of Kentucky. (We told you we were the “epicenter of the college basketball universe.”) Now, the question is can UK go undefeated? Find out what Matt and Mark think in this week’s Nothing But Net. Discussion will also address the plummeting U of L Cardinals, the surprising Hoosiers of Indiana, and our weekly look at the top teams in men’s college basketball.

One of my favorite things the McGarrigle sisters ever did was “The Log Driver’s Waltz,” which was made into this awesome animated short:
