UpFront - Mali; Flu; Richmond's success cutting violence with community policing

France has entered a civil war in Mali -- we look at the politics behind the fighting.

There are three nasty flu strains going around -- and the CDC has official declared an epidemic. We’ll talk to county health about how bad it is here, and what you can do. Our guest: Dr. Erica Pan, MD, MPH, Director of the Division of Communicable Disease Control and Prevention of Alameda County's Public Health Department.

Finally: something going right! We look at how the city of Richmond has brought down its homicide rate more than 30% in one year -- and what lessons cities like Oakland might learn from it. Our guests: Pastor Henry Washington, of The Garden of Life Ministries in Richmond, CA, who manages Richmond’s Ceasefire program; Captain Mark Gagan, spokesperson for the Richmond Police Department

hopefully next time the host

hopefully next time the host might actually ask for the evidence that the flu vaccine, or any other vaccine, is actually effective. Also worth questioning is the long term effect on the immune system. this would of course require some studies comparing population, but the best to my understanding the pharma community is not willing to do studies since it is cruel to expose a population of people to a life4 without vaccines. And I am serious that this is the reason given for the lack of studies

Point of order...... Pastor

Point of order...... Pastor Washington's church is The Garden of Peace Ministries
