COMING UP on Media Edge:
 

Episode 520

(initially on cable access TV:
  April 25 - May 1, 2015)


Segment 1: "The NRA vs. Pediatricians"
(3 minutes)
 
You wouldn’t go to a gun lobbyist or a Smith and Wesson executive for advice about your health. But that’s who is controlling our nation’s response to one of the deadliest epidemics of our time: the public health crisis of gun violence. Thanks to gun-maker money, the NRA has managed to buy laws like Florida’s notorious “Docs V. Glocks,” which bars physicians from asking their patients about whether they have a gun in their home – let alone whether that gun is accessible to a curious toddler. It’s time to end this epidemic. Doctors are the most trusted sources of health advice in America.


Segment 2: "Google and the World Brain"
(93 minutes)



The story of the most ambitious project ever conceived on the Internet. In 2002 Google began to scan millions of books in an effort to create a giant global library, containing every book in existence. They had an even greater purpose - to create a higher form of intelligence, something that HG Wells had predicted in his 1937 essay "World Brain". But over half the books Google scanned were in copyright, and authors across the world launched a campaign to stop Google, which climaxed in a New York courtroom in 2011. This film explores the dreams, dilemmas and dangers of the Internet.


Segment 3: "The Humor Times Presents
Will Durst"
(19 minutes)
 
Media Edge presents excerpts from political comedian Will Durst’s one-man show -- “BoomeRaging: From LSD to OMG” -- recorded at the 24th Street Theatre in Sacramento on August 23, 2013. According to Durst, the show is about the travails of being “chronologically gifted,” or “what happens when acid flashbacks meet dementia.”
