A 'serious investment in needs-based education funding': Simon Birmingham  

Education Minister Simon Birmingham says an additional $2,300 on average per student will flow to schools over the next few years under the Gonski 2.0 legislation, which was passed in Parliament overnight. Speaking with AM's Sabra Lane, he acknowledges that last-minute changes to the legislation in order to ensure its passing will mean that the program will cost more over the next few years, but says it 'doesn't add to the structural budget position' over the long term and rejects this morning's editorial in the Financial Review that states that the legislation is 'a metaphor for all that is wrong with Australian politics'.

Hoy Empieza Todo con Ángel Carmona - Simon Reynolds - 22/06/17  

‘Como un golpe de rayo’ (publicado por Caja Negra) es el nuevo libro del prestigioso crítico musical Simon Reynolds y en él desgrana a lo largo de casi 700 páginas la breve historia y la prolongada influencia del movimiento glam de los 70. Gustavo Iglesias se puso en contacto con Reynolds para hablar sobre esta obra y este fenómeno (musical, visual y social) del que David Bowie fue el indiscutible motor, aunque el autor reivindica también las aportaciones de otros actores menores (The Sweet, Slade o los propios T.Rex) y su influjo en todo el pop posterior, llegando a identificarlo en artistas actuales como, entre muchísimos otros, Lady Gaga o incluso Kanye West.

Eugene Onegin  

Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss Alexander Pushkin's verse novel, the story of Eugene Onegin, widely regarded as his masterpiece. Pushkin (pictured above) began this in 1823 and worked on it over the next ten years, while moving around Russia, developing the central character of a figure all too typical of his age, the so-called superfluous man. Onegin is cynical, disillusioned and detached, his best friend Lensky is a romantic poet and Tatyana, whose love for Onegin is not returned until too late, is described as a poetic ideal of a Russian woman, and they are shown in the context of the Russian landscape and society that has shaped them. Onegin draws all three into tragic situations which, if he had been willing and able to act, he could have prevented, and so becomes the one responsible for the misery of himself and others as well as the death of his friend. With Andrew Kahn Professor of Russian Literature at the University of Oxford and Fellow of St Edmund Hall Emily Finer Lecturer in Russian and Comparative Literature at the University of St Andrews and Simon Dixon The Sir Bernard Pares Professor of Russian History at University College London Producer: Simon Tillotson.

Gonski 2.0 looks set to pass, but the Government isn't claiming victory yet  

Despite widespread and virulent opposition, education minister Simon Birmingham appears to have convinced ten diverse crossbenchers to vote for Government's reduced Gonski 2.0 package. But nothing is certain in politics until the votes are counted, and the government's not claiming victory yet. The funding plan was the centrepiece of the budget, says political reporter Tom Iggulden, and getting it through would be a major coup for the Turnbull Government.

Politiikkaradio: Mikä erottaa Perussuomalaiset Sinisestä tulevaisuudesta?: 21.06.2017 13.10  

Perussuomalaiset hajosi kahdeksi ryhmäksi: mikä ryhmiä erottaa, mikä yhdistää? Vielä hetki sitten Perussuomalaiset sitoutuivat hallitusohjelmaan. Mikä on linja nyt? Tekeekö Perussuomalaiset oppositiossa kovaa, radikaalia politiikkaa maahanmuuttokysymyksissä tai EU:n vastustamisessa? Kuinka pitkälle politiikan oikeaan laitaan puolue siirtyy? Entä minkälainen on Sininen tulevaisuus -puolueeksi rekisteröityvän Uusi vaihtoehto -ryhmän poliittinen linja? Ryhmällä ei ole poliittista ohjelmaa, vaan linjaksi on ilmoitettu sitoutuminen hallitusohjelmaan. Vastustaako Sininen tulevaisuus Euroopan unionia? Hyväksyykö ryhmä pakolaiskiintiön nostamisen? Keskustelemassa ovat Perussuomalaisista irronneen Uusi vaihtoehto -eduskuntaryhmän puheenjohtaja Simon Elo ja Perussuomalaisten eduskuntaryhmän puheenjohtaja Leena Meri (ps.). Toimittajana on Tapio Pajunen.

Siegfried Sassoon's Letter to The Times  

Five writers explore the year 1917 through the work of five Great War artists. Tonight, Joanna Bourke on Siegfried Sassoon and his celebrated protest against the conflict. "I am making this statement as an act of wilful defiance of military authority, because I believe that the War is being deliberately prolonged by those who have the power to end it." So wrote the soldier-poet Siegfried Sassoon in July 1917, in a letter to the Times newspaper. "I am a soldier," he went on, "convinced that I am acting on behalf of soldiers. I believe this War, upon which I entered as a war of defence and liberation, has now become a war of aggression and conquest." The result was uproar - and Sassoon's subsequent confinement to Craiglockhart Hospital in Edinburgh, suffering (the authorities concluded) from shell-shock. In tonight's Essay, Joanna Bourke re-reads Sassoon's letter of protest and examines what led up to his outspoken anti-war declaration, and what happened next. Producer: Simon Elmes.

The Slants Win the Day!  

On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled that a law denying federal trademark protection to names deemed disparaging is unconstitutional. Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the unanimous decision that “it offends a bedrock First Amendment principle: speech may not be banned on the ground that it expresses ideas that offend.”

The suit was brought by the Portland dance-rock band The Slants, a group of Asian-American musicians who have taken their name from an ethnic slur and worn it with pride. The musicians sued because when they tried to register trademark for their name, the US Patent and Trademark Office said, “The Slants? No no no no no no."

Bob spoke to the founder of The Slants, Simon Tam, exactly 2 years ago, when the band had just lost its appeal at the Federal Circuit Court.
