    Watch our full interview with Vice President Mike Pence

    PBS NewsHour

    Vice President Mike Pence has been central to U.S. policy in Syria. After President Trump's controversial decision to withdraw American troops from the country and the ensuing Syrian incursion by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Pence was instrumental in securing a cease-fire agreement with Erdogan. Judy Woodruff sits down with Pence to discuss that effort and the impeachment inquiry.

    Question

    Another controversial issue which tends to be ignored ...


    The Great Death Of Insects | DW Documentary (Ecology documentary)

    Insects are dying out and scientists and environmentalists are sounding the alarm. Our film team meets entomologists, farmers, scientists, chemical companies and politicians in a bid to lay bare the causes of insect mortality.

    Insects aren’t really likeable. They sting, bite, transmit diseases and frighten children. But, on the other hand, they are also fascinating: 480 million years ago, insects were the first animals to learn to fly, and they took over the Earth. Even now, they are fundamental to life on Earth, and are at the beginning of the food chain on which all human beings are ultimately dependent.

    But insect numbers worldwide are dropping, creating a rupture of the food chain. Environmentalists and scientists are now extremely worried. Landscape ecology professor Alexandra-Maria Klein from Freiburg, for example, has been researching the effects of human interventions in natural environments for decades and has launched an experiment in a fruit plantation on Lake Constance: What happens when insects disappear? An ominous silence is settling on places that were once humming and buzzing. Why are the insects dying? Author Christoph Würzburger takes a journey into the fascinating world of insects and meets entomologists, farmers, scientists, chemical companies and politicians in a search for the causes of insect mortality.

    Re the Great Death of Insects:

    Wow. The apple tree experiment was fascinating. Hand pollination yielded small apples. Wind pollination yielded apples without seeds. The bee pollinated apples were far and away the best.

    Light pollution and the effects on bugs was not something I knew a great deal about.

    Very interesting, and kinda depressing.

    East Berlin Or Bust ...

    Udo Lindenberg: The Godfather of German Rock and the Fall of the Berlin Wall | DW Documentary

    "I was the official enemy of the East German state," says German rock legend Udo Lindenberg. Since the 1970s, he’d opposed the Berlin Wall through his work and actions. Arts.21 spoke to him about his commitment to East Germans and about his music.

    With the fall of the Berlin Wall, Lindenberg was finally able to go on tour in the former communist country, and one of those first concerts took him to Leipzig, where the now-legendary Monday Demonstrations that ultimately spelled the end of the East German regime took place. Udo Lindenberg became a household name in Germany, in part by making rock music sung in German popular, thanks to the success of his 1973 album, "Alles klar auf der Andrea Doria" – nothing short of a revolution at the time. He's written more than 600 songs so far, and released 36 studio albums, which have sold millions of copies. Udo Lindenberg and his band, The Panikorchester, create huge stage spectacles. Their concerts are among the most lavish and expensive shows in the music business, even internationally. Today, the “Godfather of German Rock” is more popular than ever. In an exclusive interview, we talk to him about his dedication to East Germans; the era of German division; the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989; the situation now, thirty years later, in a unified Germany; and, of course, about his music.

    The story of the man behind the "Hide the Pain Harold" - meme.

    Originally an engineer, when his face became famous, he ran with it and is now an international celebrity. He even gave a Ted talk. Quite a wonderful story methinks.
