This week, we were luck enough to have Kamila Orlova, a student here at UM who hailed from Russia, to speak with us about the Ukrainian situation. Additionally, I let Jordan rant about his gripes with Florida Governor Rick Scott, and for the last few minutes of the show, we talked about the first season of House of Cards (we will talk about the second season in the near future). Discussion was good, as usual, even though we were missing our usual conservative commentators, but I thought I played a decent devil’s advocate to bridge the gap. Anyways, hit the jump below to listen to the show. Keep it locked.

Heroes Unite with Alice Billman

By Shelly Lynn | NFP | January 25th, 2014 | LEAVE A COMMENT

Alice Billman, Executive Director of Heroes Unite, speaks about the struggles of low-income families and deficiencies of the public school system where their children attend. In defiance of the state cuts on arts funds, she has set up an after-school program that teaches kids, 2nd grade to 5th grade, Chinese Martial Arts. The function of Chinese Martial Arts is to teach assertiveness not aggression. Funding support for the arts has decreased dramatically in recent years. Alice has devoted herself to promoting the revival of the arts through the nurturing of new and established artists and actors in the South Florida region. Apart from the after-school program, Heroes Unite provides the community with the Heroines Choir and the Mobile Micro Theater.
