Kentucky is at the center of what experts are calling the worst black lung epidemic on record. But instead of making it easier for miners to get access to health care, Kentucky’s lawmakers passed a law that may soon hinder miners’ ability to obtain workers’ compensation benefits. The new law, which goes into effect on July 14th, bars federally certified radiologists from assessing coal miners’ X-rays in state black lung workers’ compensation claims. Instead, the state will require that only pulmonologists, physicians whose focus is lung disease, be allowed to judge X-rays for benefit claims. Right now, there are only 11 doctors in Kentucky who are certified to examine X-rays for state benefits claims, and the new law will cut that number down to five.

The Witches of Gushegu: The villages offering the only sanctuary to Ghanaian women accused of witchcraft. Exposing Uganda's witchdoctors: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IlQA5CLf7cQ For Journeyman's top stories this week: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlGSlkijht5gyYNkhTOmpP-3AKawhjkdv Subscribe to Journeyman for daily uploads: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures For downloads and more information visit: http://www.journeyman.tv/68491/short-films/the-witches-of-gushegu-hd.html In northern Ghana, an enduring belief in witchcraft has resulted in the exile of many women from their villages. Yet in the refuge camp of Gushegu, these women are offered a chance at reintegration. Blamed for sickness and death, abused and chased out of their villages; the story is the same for hundreds of women in Ghana. Tipaa describes her ordeal: "I cannot go back to the village, my children are poor and they will harm them if I go and live with them again." But volunteers in Gushegu care for these women and help negotiate their reintegration. "We only see them as human beings, as we are, and we work with them", describes volunteer Zenab. "I am happy to go home, but I don't know if everyone will be happy to see me come back", says Budali, a woman accused of murdering her husband. By setting up educational programmes, the volunteers are working to tackle the root cause of witchcraft accusations, yet it may take generations before witch hunting in Ghana is finally halted.

Watch TOXIC: Amazon on VICE.COM: http://www.vice.com/toxicamazon Thomas Morton and the VICE cameras are back for the newest addition to the award winning environmental online series Toxic. Following their investigative documentaries on The Great Pacific Garbage Patch and the World's Most Polluted City: Linfen China, VICE turns the lens onto the complicated and deadly knot of entanglements of politics, culture and history, environmental causes, and logging profits over what is commonly referred to the Amazon. Jose Claudio Ribeiro da Silva, an environmental activist, and his wife, Maria, were killed In the trademark style of contracted executions. The killers shot Ze Claudio, and his wife in the heads as they rode home. The assassins removed an ear from each of them, a trademark and scare tactic used against the poor pro-Amazon public. Why were they murdered? Ze Claudio was an outspoken proponent of the sustainable use of the Amazon and a major opposition figure against the modernist ruralistas. Had Jose and Maria become to problematic to profits? One poignant example of the brutality in the war for the Amazon occurred while the lower house of Brazil's government was in session debating logging legislation, the day the de Silvas were murdered. A representative took to the floor to announce the tragic deaths of the de Silvas. The response by his colleagues? Upon hearing the news of the murders while debating Amazon legislation , a round of booing erupted from the large section of agribusiness-backed "ruralistas," Welcome to life in the Amazon.

One of the series' earliest successes and its single most popular episode is Lucille Fletcher's "Sorry, Wrong Number," about a bedridden woman (Agnes Moorehead) who panics after overhearing a murder plot on a crossed telephone connection but is unable to persuade anyone to investigate. First broadcast on May 25, 1943, it was restaged seven times (last on February 14, 1960) — each time with Moorehead. The popularity of the episode led to a film adaptation, Sorry, Wrong Number (1948), starring Barbara Stanwyck. Nominated for an Academy Award for her performance, Stanwyck recreated the role on Lux Radio Theater. Loni Anderson had the lead in the TV movie Sorry, Wrong Number (1989). Another notable early episode was Fletcher's "The Hitch Hiker," in which a motorist (Orson Welles) is stalked on a cross-country trip by a nondescript man who keeps appearing on the side of the road. This episode originally aired on September 2, 1942, and was later adapted for television by Rod Serling as a 1960 episode of The Twilight Zone. After the network sustained the program during its first two years, the sponsor became Roma Wines (1944--1947), and then (after another brief period of sustained hour-long episodes, initially featuring Robert Montgomery as host and "producer" in early 1948), Autolite Spark Plugs (1948--1954); eventually Harlow Wilcox (of Fibber McGee and Molly) became the pitchman. William Spier, Norman MacDonnell and Anton M. Leader were among the producers and directors. The program's heyday was in the early 1950s, when radio actor, producer and director Elliott Lewis took over (still during the Wilcox/Autolite run). Here the material reached new levels of sophistication. The writing was taut, and the casting, which had always been a strong point of the series (featuring such film stars as Orson Welles, Joseph Cotten, Henry Fonda, Humphrey Bogart, Judy Garland, Ronald Colman, Marlene Dietrich, Eve McVeagh, Lena Horne, and Cary Grant), took an unexpected turn when Lewis expanded the repertory to include many of radio's famous drama and comedy stars — often playing against type — such as Jack Benny. Jim and Marian Jordan of Fibber McGee and Molly were heard in the episode, "Backseat Driver," which originally aired February 3, 1949. The highest production values enhanced Suspense, and many of the shows retain their power to grip and entertain. At the time he took over Suspense, Lewis was familiar to radio fans for playing Frankie Remley, the wastrel guitar-playing sidekick to Phil Harris in The Phil Harris-Alice Faye Show. On the May 10, 1951 Suspense, Lewis reversed the roles with "Death on My Hands": A bandleader (Harris) is horrified when an autograph-seeking fan accidentally shoots herself and dies in his hotel room, and a vocalist (Faye) tries to help him as the townfolk call for vigilante justice against him. With the rise of television and the departures of Lewis and Autolite, subsequent producers (Antony Ellis, William N. Robson and others) struggled to maintain the series despite shrinking budgets, the availability of fewer name actors, and listenership decline. To save money, the program frequently used scripts first broadcast by another noteworthy CBS anthology, Escape. In addition to these tales of exotic adventure, Suspense expanded its repertoire to include more science fiction and supernatural content. By the end of its run, the series was remaking scripts from the long-canceled program The Mysterious Traveler. A time travel tale like Robert Arthur's "The Man Who Went Back to Save Lincoln" or a thriller about a death ray-wielding mad scientist would alternate with more run-of-the-mill crime dramas. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suspense_%28radio_drama%29
