What is life like living under the brutal dictatorship of Hafez al-Asad? During the 42 year reign of this regime from father to son, there have been companions who the regime has perceived as the enemy killed or jailed, the riches of Syria have plundered, politicians, journalist, and people have have been killed or missing in action, there has been a rise in violent extremism and the regime has killed it’s own. In 1982 the historic center of Hama was leveled. So what gives? Listen as we go live with MSU student who has survived this and is here in America.

In 2010, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli filed a law suit against University of Virgina (Mike Mann Climate Gate Professor) who received nearly half a million dollars in research grants to do research on the climate of the earth. The reseach concluded that global warmining is related to human activities, particularly the burning of fossil fuels.
The contraversary stems from Manns critics who claim that “he” used the contraversial “hockey stick graph” which contends that global temperatures have experienced a sudden an unprecedented spike in recent years -the graph is in the shape of a hockey stick. Professor Mann is director of the Earth System Science Center at Penn State.
In researching the case, Cuccinelli discovered an email in which one researcher expressed an interest in punching Charlottsville-based doubting climate scientist Patrick Michaels in the nose.
