Late City Edition: Monday, December 9 at 9pm
The Jordan river has inspired countless poems and spirituals, but these days it is hardly recognizable. Partially due to human intervention, the flow of the Jordan has dramatically slowed, and the river is now ecologically endangered. Tune in Monday at 9PM for December's collaboration with the Advanced Consortium on Cooperation, Conflict, and Complexity (AC4). In tonight's show, Dr. Beth Fisher-Yoshida, an expert in conflict resololution, is joined by three of her students, and they discuss their recent trip to the Jordan river, and talk about the conflicts caused by water shortage in the surrounding areas, which include Israel, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine.
