In 2009, the Honduran military deposed elected President Manuel Zelaya. First elected in 2006, Zelaya had moved to the left over the course of his Presidency, and had called for a national referendum to revise the Honduran constitution. After the coup, Zelaya remained in exile in the Dominican Republic. Now, Zelaya’s wife, Xiomara Castro, has taken up the leftist banner in Honduran politics and is running for the Presidency herself, opposing conservative Juan Hernandez. Both candidates are seeking to replace conservative Porfiro Lobo Sosa, who succeeded Zelaya in 2009, but is not running again. WORT’s Norm Stockwell was in Honduras, tracking the 2013 elections. Stockwell joined Monday Buzz host Brian Standing on 11/25/2013 for an update on the hotly contested election. more »

Pigeons. Some folks call them “rats with wings.” Some cities have enacted pigeon eradication programs, even — so the story goes — reintroducing Peregrine Falcons to kill pigeons. None of these tactics have worked particularly well for the Domestic Pigeon columbia ilvia domestica, which has proven more resistant to human influence than their native cousins, such as the Passenger Pigeon. But some humans have developed a soft spot for those pudgy cooing birds. Colin Jerolmack is an assistant professor of Sociology at New York University who has studied the peculiar relationship people develop with pigeons. He joined Monday Buzz host Brian Standing on November 18, 2013. more »

On November 8, Typhoon Haiyan made landfall in the Philippines, bringing it with it winds up to 230 miles per hour, and a storm surge over 13 feet high. The death toll in the Philippines is expected to reach over 2,300, with millions displaced from their homes. Typhoon Haiyan comes hot on the heels of other mega storms, like Hurricanes Sandy and Katrina. We may not be able to prevent such storms, but what if we had more time to be able to get people out of harm’s way? The University of Wisconsin’s Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies is at the center of the effort to track and predict where such storms go and when they will land. Derrick Herndon, Senior Researcher with the C.I.M.S.S. joined the Monday Buzz on 11/18/2013 to tell more about the latest in storm tracking. more »
