This week, we’ll discuss an investigation by Center For Investigative Reporting that reveals how&nbsp;federal G.I. Bill is supporting for-profit&nbsp;colleges instead of helping Veterans. We’ll also talk about the for-profit college industry. It receives more than $30 billion a year in taxpayer money through federal grants and loans. We will be joined by the Center for Investigative Reporting’s Araon Glantz and Republic Report’s David Halperin. Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Holly Kernan, and you.</p> Fri, 25 Jul 2014 06:43:00 +0000 Malihe Razazan 47077 at http://kalw.org Your Call: Investigating the for-profit college industry How one Bay Area city is causing national controversy with local gun control http://kalw.org/post/how-one-bay-area-city-causing-national-controversy-local-gun-control <p></p><p class="p1">Tony Spitaleri remembers the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Connecticut vividly.

But that right comes with overwhelming responsibility and controversy. There are approximately 30,000 gun deaths in the U.S. every year. Many involve people who don't own guns, and many involve children. The nation seems torn, and even individuals who themselves want to own and shoot guns can find themselves conflicted.</p> Fri, 25 Jul 2014 01:03:25 +0000 News Producer 47066 at http://kalw.org My reluctant relationship with guns Audiograph's Sound of the Week: Pacific Rod and Gun Club http://kalw.org/post/audiographs-sound-week-pacific-rod-and-gun-club <p style="margin-bottom: 15px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; font-size: 13px; vertical-align: baseline; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; line-height: 18px;">All week long&nbsp;we've been playing<a href="http://www.kalw.org/post/can-you-guess-audiograph-sound-week-april-7-2013" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; vertical-align: baseline; color: rgb(0, 82, 155);">&nbsp;</a><a href="http://kalw.org/post/can-you-guess-audiograph-sound-week-july-19-2014" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; vertical-align: baseline; color: rgb(0, 82, 155);">this Fri, 25 Jul 2014 00:59:22 +0000 Lisa Carmack 47065 at http://kalw.org Audiograph's Sound of the Week: Pacific Rod and Gun Club Crosscurrents: July 24, 2014 http://kalw.org/post/crosscurrents-july-24-2014 <p></p><p></p><p><strong>Guns! </strong>A Visit to the Richmond Rod and Gun Club; Jay Allison's reluctant relationship with guns; how one Bay Area city is causing national controversy with local gun control; Audiograph's Sound of the Week revealed!
