Insight: Vaccination Exemption / News Network / California and the Civil War / The Loom


 
 
 
Vaccination Exemption  Sacramento Assemblyman and former pediatrician Dr. Richard Pan has authored legislation that will make it harder for a parent to keep his or her child from being vaccinated.  Under current law a parent can enroll his or her child in a public school without being vaccinated if he or she files a "personal belief exemption."  Assembly Bill 2109 will require a parent or guardian seeking a "personal belief exemption" to get the signature of a licensed health care practitioner who says the parent or guardian was informed of the benefits and risks of the immunization before opting out of vaccinations.  We'll also speak with Dr. Jay Gordon who is against the bill.  For more information on this topic, please go to: /articles/2011/08/29/opting-out-community-immunity-and-the-choice-to-vaccinate

The Loom Brooklyn's "The Loom" are gearing up to head West on tour in support of their debut LP, "Teeth"   Teeth sways from somber drones of distortion and lonely French horn to manic layers of trumpet, guitar fuzz, and cymbal crashes, its resonance lies in the way these contrasts conjure the idiosyncratic personal details and experiences, both immense and minute, of everyday life. They tell stories of regret and renewal - of characters "doing their dishes in the dark" even while "trying to make the days feel long" - offsetting minor notes with major keys and tempering squall with calm.  They'll be in the Sacramento area this week to share their music with us.
