The Resolution

"The Resolution" will be a collegiate debate show for hot-button policy issues. Teams will build their cases for 30 days, aided by the online audience. Winning teams receive cash prizes. Matches will air live, Sundays at 7pm, on WLRN-FM and TV.

Not In My Backyard

"Not In My Backyard" promotes understanding and change by linking online visitors to audio and video interviews of people from their own community who suffer from situations that are often pushed aside (mental illness, unemployment, homelessness, etc.). The strength of the stories comes in part due to their local connection.

Mother Feeding

Baby food should be with iron, proctein & Vitamin C.
If the pregnant ladies are noted down and properly treated, then most of the Nutrition problem will be solved. In a village of 2000 people mostly around 5 to 10 pregnant women are found. So, it is very much necessity to identify them and give nutritious food of “Chatthu Mavu”, ie. Dhal flour powder (contains nine dhalls).
Alongwith the nutrition flour powder, we must council the ladies for betterment of their mind. The ladies are very fond of goose berry, which is very well available.
