12 a.m. (midnight): Radio News: Apple Drops Objections to Drone-Tracking App From Amy Goodman and "Democracy Now!": "A new iPhone app has been released that tracks every reported U.S. drone strike overseas. Over the course of two years, Apple rejected different versions no less than five times. Now, for the first time, the app is finally available under the name of Metadata+, created by New York University graduate student Josh Begley. Madiha Tahir, a filmmaker whose documentary "Wounds of Waziristan" looks at the drone war, says Apple stalled the app’s approval for political reasons before Begley found a workaround."

2 a.m.: In Other News: Dr. Carmen Boulter In Other News topics range from the conspiratorial, controversial, and esoteric near the fringe of belief systems. One hour is not usually enough time to explore each topic. Some topics, such as geo-engineering, will be revisited many times. Dr. Carmen Boulter Notes: Credits: Last week Dr. Carmen Boulter's work was mentioned in the context of following the thread in past shows that discussed telluric energy, leylines and megalith builders. Dr. Boulter as many may know is the director, producer and writer of the powerful documentary series called The Pyramid Code. The series has aired in 34 countries and describes how the Great Pyramid served as an energy generator. It was built on intersecting leylines and constructed with specific materials that are now thought to have harnessed and stored power. The power was created by the interaction of sunlight on water moving through passageways to build a charge using large crystals. This concept is similar to Nikola's Tesla's tower design at the Wardenclyffe tower. Dr. Boulter, a former professor at the University of Calgary is also producing another documentary series titled The New Atlantis and is author of the book Angels and Archetypes: An Evolutionary Map of Feminine Consciousness. Her new website is Interactive-u.com

10 a.m.: Prison Voices Project: The Convict Lease System A black history month special program. Following the emancipation of African Americans from slavery, the convict leasing system allowed white plantation owners to "lease" prisoners from the state and force them to do grueling physical labor. This system, which was practiced throughout the South immediately followed the legal emancipation of African Americans, lasted in some locations until World War II. This little known history provides context for the current disproportionate incarceration of African Americans and the growth of the private prison system: The incarceration of blacks and the use of coerced prison labor have deep historical roots in slavery. Excerpts from the PBS documentary, "Slavery by Another Name," will be featured. Hosted by Cory Fischer-Hoffman.
