Why do you travel? For the new sites, the solitude, the adventure? In this hour, we talk with writers, philosophers and veteran itinerants about hitting the road. Plus, a look at New York's High Line, five years into its reinvention. [Broadcast Date: May 23, 2014] 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Fleming.

Two BBC Radio programmes exploring President John F. Kennedy's shocking assassination on 22 November 1963. In Something Is Terribly Wrong, first broadcast in 2003, Alan Thompson charts the confusion and disbelief after the assassination. He returns to key sites in Dallas, and talks to eyewitnesses including Nellie Connally (ex-First Lady of Texas), Jim Leavelle (ex-Dallas detective), Jim Ewell (ex-Dallas Morning News correspondent), Aubry Rike (ambulance driver/witness), and Ken Dowe, from Dallas radio station KLIF. Using rare, vivid archive material, he relives the events as they unfolded over three days that shocked the world. In Letter from America, first broadcast two days after the President's assassination, renowned broadcaster Alistair Cooke uses his weekly radio missive to reflect upon the legacy of John F. Kennedy, and to observe that the American nation feels it has been robbed of a brother. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alistair Cooke.

In this hour, David Gessner wants to change the way people write about nature. Instead of the traditional stories about wild animals in pristine landscapes, he calls for a style of nature writing that's messy, even raucous, and includes an often-overlooked animal: people. He talks with Anne Strainchamps about his book My Green Manifesto, the story of a kayak trip down Boston's charles River with his friend Dan Driscoll. Then, nature writer Robert Finch gives Steve Paulson an insider's view of the ecosystem of the Cape Cod town of Wellfleet. They walk along the outskirts of Wellfleet, and visit shellfish growers Pat and Barbara Woodbury, who are raking for clams. Finch reads from his collection of essays A Cape Cod Notebook and he reflects on the ways that people have changed the Cape's landscape. Next, Lauret Savoy believes too many nature writers focus on pristine wilderness and neglect the gritty reality of the places where people actually live - in cities, for instance, maybe even near toxic waste sites. And writing about these places means grappling with difficult questions about race and poverty. Savoy talks with Jim Fleming about her book The Colors of Nature. And finally, Gary Snyder occupies a unique place in American letters. A Pulitzer prize-winning poet and a friend of the Beat writers, he has carved out a distinct literary voice in poems and essays about Buddhist spirituality and the natural world. Steve Paulson talks with Snyder about what it means to be a Buddhist animist, his Zen training in Japan, the meaning of gratitude, and the importance of exploring "the wild areas of the mind." Snyder also reads two poems. [Broadcast Date: November 11, 2011] 1. Language: English. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/tbon/111111/rt_tbon_111111_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Today on To the Best of Our Knowledge, "Protest 2.0": how open-source protesting is changing the world. First, a little theoretical overview. How exactly does social media allow someone in say, Tunis, to overthrow their government? Jim Fleming talks to Clay Shirky, author of Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing without Organizations. V for Vendetta is the film for the Internet's Anonymous movement. They're the hackers who brought down the sites of MasterCard, PayPal and Visa after they shut off donations to Wikileaks. Gregg Housh tells Steve Paulson about Anonymous. Steve wanted to know how Gregg could be the spokesperson for an anonymous organization. To the Best of Our Knowledge is produced in Madison, Wisconsin, which recently saw this new type of leaderless social-media revolution in full bloom. It was in response to Governor Scott Walker announcing his controversial "budget repair bill" that would strip the collective bargaining rights of state employees. One of the sleep-in activists at the State Capitol was writer and blogger Christie Taylor. She kept a diary of her experiences…. The Arab Spring caught a lot of people by surprise, but not a group called Global Voices. It's made up of more than 300 bloggers and translators around the world who are closely watching Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and blogs - ready to report when ordinary people become citizen journalists, as they did throughout the events of the Arab Spring. Ivan Sigal, Global Voices' Executive Director, tells Anne Strainchamps about it. All eyes have been on the Middle East for some months now. But al Qaeda has been conspicuous for its absence. Many have declared al Qaeda and other Muslim extremist groups irrelevant with regards to the Arab Spring. Irrelevant? Anne Strainchamps posed that question to Romesh Ratnesar, contributing editor-at-large at Time magazine. [Broadcast Date: May 11, 2011] 1. Language: English.

Base station cooperation (BSC), also known as Cooperative Multi-Point (CoMP), has been identified as a key radio access technology for next-generation cellular networks. This work creates a foundational framework that extends BSC transmission to provide spatial spectrum sharing (SSS) through MIMO null beamforming while enjoying cooperative stream transmission. SSS is investigated by introducing the protected Gaussian MIMO broadcast channel (PGMBC), a GMBC with receive power constraints. Applications of the PGMBC are identified and its capacity region is derived. In addition, precoding schemes are developed to mitigate intercell interference and intersystem interference. The simulations show that through BSC, significant throughput gains over non-cooperative null-beamforming schemes can be achieved. However, to maximize the benefits of BSC in practical networks, the location and configuration of BS sites must be planned accordingly. This work introduces a fundamental framework for planning BSC networks. The impacts of BSC on coverage, capacity, complexity are investigated. In addition, a cell planning procedure for distributed, dynamic fractional BSC networks is described.
