“Isle of Dogs”
(2018) Animation/Adventure/Action/Comedy
Fox Searchlight Pictures
5/5 stars

Those who are fans of Wes Anderson and love dogs are very likely to appreciate “Isle of Dogs”. The last film Anderson did is “The Grand Budapest Hotel”(2014), and before that, as a full-featured film, “Moonrise Kingdom” (2012).

A flu epidemic has broken out in make believe town Megasaki, Japan, the dogs are blamed for the scourge and exiled to Trash Island. Kobayas (Kunichi Nomura), the mayor of Megasaki, is up for reelection sending all the dogs to a landfill where food (most of it rotten and radioactive) is scarce and survival is dire.

What is the U of M’s Wages Study about?

The minimum wage is scheduled to rise to $15 an hour in Minneapolis over the next 5 years. The Wages Study, funded by the National Institutes of Health, will evaluate the effects of this increase on the health of low-wage Minneapolis workers. The study will look at a number of health-related measures including food purchases. The aim is to enroll 450 low-wage workers in Minneapolis (earning $11.50/hour or less). Low-wage workers will also be enrolled in Raleigh, North Carolina for comparison because that State has passed a law preventing municipalities from raising the minimum wage.

Raise Your Voice – Seven Generations

By PETER MOLENAAR

The “7th generation” principle, taught by our Native American neighbors, says that in every decision we make, we must consider how it will affect our descendants seven generations into the future. This approach seems to have worked well for a people who have demonstrated 10,000 years of staying power. As for me, I look backwards to immigrant great-grandparents, and do my best to see the “3rd generation” yet to be. Read the rest of this entry »

First Person Radio Signs Off the Air

By ELAINE SALINAS

The final segment of First Person Radio (FPR) aired on KFAI Radio in Minneapolis on February 14th, 2018, forty years after it originated as The Native American Program on KUOM-AM, the University of Minnesota’s radio station. First Person Radio can best be described as a labor of love coupled with a commitment to produce timely and accurate news and information about the American Indian community to counter the many misrepresentations and inaccuracies perpetuated about Native people in the major media. Not surprisingly, the program was birthed by a volunteer group of bold young Indian University students organized by a seasoned and visionary journalist, Laura Waterman Wittstock. Laura, from the Seneca Nation in New York, had worked with the pioneering Native American Press Association in Washington, D.C. in the early 1970s. First Person Radio was the first work of MIGIZI Communications. Read the rest of this entry »
