‘Should bartering be part of the economy?’ It’s A Question Of Balance 8-9 PM Saturday January 10th

This Saturday January 10th 8-9 PM on It’s A Question Of Balance with Ruth Copland we consider ‘Should bartering be part of the economy?’ A barter economy is a cashless economic system. Barter has seen a resurgence in recent years due to economic insecurity, unemployment and low wages. In addition, the pervasiveness of the internet and social networking has increased the chance of matching people’s bartering needs successfully and so bartering has become more appealing because you probably can get the trade you want. Many people also enjoy the sense of community and connectedness amongst traders. However, some see bartering as a potential threat to a capitalist economy and also possibly open to abuse by people receiving welfare. In addition, the IRS considers a barter transaction the equivalent of a buy and trade transaction so it is subject to tax. Have you engaged in bartering? Should bartering be taxed? Do you see bartering as competing with the dollar currency? Or even as subverting capitalism? Is it a positive or negative in the economy?

Tandy Beal Special Guest on It’s A Question Of Balance with Ruth Copland Saturday January 10th 9-10 PM

This week as my special guest from the arts I’m pleased to be interviewing Santa Cruz local Tandy Beal, internationally regarded dancer, choreographer, and artistic director celebrating 40 years of Tandy Beal and Company this year. Tandy's creative work springs from a sense of the great mystery of being here on this strange planet. Joy, wonder, and celebration balance her interest in the ineffable. She weaves these varied emotions into exuberant theatrical mosaics. Her solos have multi-media, storytelling, dance, humor and original music by Jon Scoville. Tandy began her career at age 16 touring world-wide with Alwin Nikolais Dance Theatre, performing off-Broadway, appearing as a guest with Atlanta Ballet, Momix, Remy Charlip, Murray Louis, Oakland Ballet, Carolyn Carlson in France and Bobby McFerrin, with whom she has worked for over 30 years. She has made 100+ works for her own company touring four continents. Her diverse career has led her to opera, circus, music videos, corporate events, solo shows, animation, horse spectacles, commercials, and fundraising extravaganzas. In addition, Tandy served as Artistic Director for the Moscow Circus in Japan for 2 years and for the Pickle Family Circus for 10 years.

Tandy has worked with many composers, including Art Lande, Lou Harrison, John Adams, SoVoSó and for 40 astonishing years with her co-conspirator, Jon Scoville. She was the choreographer for Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, MTV and the Emmy award-winning PBS special, Voice/Dance. She received awards from the American Film Institute to make a film on Hildegard von Bingen, and the San Francisco Museum of Performance and Design chose Beal for their video project Four Dance Icons of the West. Tandy has also taught at the Centre National de la Danse Contemporaine (France), 30 years at the University of Utah as an annual guest artist, UC Santa Cruz and chaired the Cabrillo College Dance Dept.

‘Can God and Science Co-exist?’ It’s A Question Of Balance 8-9 PM Saturday November 8th

This Saturday November 8th 8-9 PM on It’s A Question Of Balance with Ruth Copland we consider ‘Can God and Science Co-exist?’ Atheists and creationists would have us believe that we have to choose between God and Science - but do we? Amir Aczel in his new book Why Science Does Not Disprove God makes a distinction between two Gods - ‘the Gods of organised religions and the Gods of Einstein’. Einstein himself said ‘Science without religion is lame: religion without science is blind.’ The God Aczel is defending is a power behind the universe, not the God of religions. So is it possible to adhere to specific religious tenets whilst also appreciating the greater understanding of our world that science offers? Science has shown that we are made from the same cosmic dust as stars, quantum physics shows that particles once connected remain so over any distance, even millions of light years; increasingly science shows that we come from one source - and for many this source is God. Pope John Paul II stated “Science can purify religion from error and superstition; religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes. Each can draw the other into a wider world, a world in which both can flourish”. Do you see the possibility of religions and science working more closely to share their different perspectives? Can God and science co-exist?
