Steve Hart Radio Show - cellphone warning

START

In his radio show this week, Auckland journalist Steve Hart interviews Liz Barris on a new bill that will, when passed into law, force retailers in the USA to put health warning stickers on mobile phone packaging.

It has taken her five years to convince legislatures in the state of Maine that cellphones need warning stickers on them, claiming that cellphones can be harmful.

This week's big question is; where is flight MF370? Steve bundles up the latest ideas on where it could be, and speculates that it could have landed safely somewhere. Have your say at www.SteveHart.co (look for show No 9).

Steve reports that In the UK, half the meat samples tested by a local authority food safety team in 2013 contained species of animals not identified on their labels. In total, 105 samples of meat products were collected from retailers and 50 samples failed to meet legal requirements for composition and labelling.

In the US, a coalition of organizations dedicated to civil liberties filed a federal lawsuit to overturn Idaho’s newly passed “ag gag” law.

The law criminalizes whistle-blowing investigations at factory farms – the law makes it illegal for anyone to take photos or videos at a factory farm or slaughterhouse without the owner’s express consent.

In New Zealand, former All Black lock Frank Oliver died this week aged 65. Radio New Zealand drive time host Mary Wilson invited former rugby union player Andy Haden - hear how it all went pear shaped…

A Pentagon watchdog charged with oversight of the National Security Agency said he was “not aware” of its bulk phone records collection until it was exposed in June 2013.

And the Bank of England has thrown the theoretical basis for austerity out the window, admitting that any amount of money can be created by banks – so long as there is someone available to borrow it.
