WBUR-FM (90.9 FM) is a public radio station located in Boston, Massachusetts, owned by Boston University. WBUR is the largest of three NPR member stations in Boston, along with WGBH and WUMB-FM. WBUR produces several nationally distributed programs, including Car Talk, On Point, Only A Game, Here and Now and Open Source, and previously produced The Connection (which was canceled on August 5, 2005). RadioBoston, launched in 2007, is WBUR’s only purely local show. WBUR’s positioning statement is “Boston’s NPR News Station.”

WBUR also carries its programming on two other stations serving Cape Cod and the Islands: WBUH (89.1 FM) in Brewster, and WBUA (92.7 FM) in Tisbury. The latter station, located on Martha’s Vineyard, uses the frequency formerly occupied by WMVY. In 1998, WBUR helped launch WRNI in Providence, Rhode Island—the first NPR station within Rhode Island’s borders. It has since sold the station to a local group.

According to Ken Mills, a Minneapolis broadcast consultant and Nielsen data, the number of listeners of WBUR has grown since 2012, increasing from 409,000 to 534,400. WBUR is the sixth most popular NPR news station in the United States.

WBUR programs On Point, Only A Game and Here and Now are carried nationwide in the US on hundreds of public radio stations and on XM Radio’s public radio station, XM Public Radio. In total, WBUR produces more than 25 hours of news and programming each week.

On Point is a two-hour discussion show hosted by Tom Ashbrook, broadcast weekdays, with two hourly segments devoted to separate topics. Often one hour-long block will focus on a political issue and the other will focus on arts and culture. On Point began as ‘special programming’ in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, originally airing from 7 pm to 9 pm. It took over the time slot of the similar The Connection when that show was canceled in 2005.

Here and Now is a news and culture digest show hosted by Jeremy Hobson and Robin Young, normally consisting of several interview segments with reporters, authors football shirts sale online, artists and statesmen. It began as a regional and local show, but soon expanded to cover national and international issues. The show is syndicated nationally by more than 400 other NPR member stations.

Open Source is a weekly show hosted by Christopher Lydon, former New York Times journalist and original host of The Connection. The show focuses on the arts, literature, and foreign affairs.

In 2007, WBUR launched Radio Boston, a weekly radio show featuring longtime Boston journalist David Boeri. The show was later hosted by Jane Clayson Johnson as a one-hour discussion and interview, though Boeri still introduced each show with a report from the field. In 2010, Radio Boston expanded to broadcast Monday through Friday. In the fall of 2010, new host Meghna Chakrabarti went on maternity leave and was temporarily replaced by WBUR reporter Sacha Pfeiffer. Chakrabarti has returned sweater de piller, and is currently co-hosting the show with Anthony Brooks.

Only A Game is a weekly sports program broadcast twice on Saturdays. The show is hosted by Bill Littlefield and is syndicated to about 210 affiliate stations by National Public Radio. The wide-ranging program describes itself as “irreverent” and often covers sports from a human interest angle, rather than appealing directly to a particular fan base.

On Sunday evenings, WBUR-FM also broadcasts a show entitled Boston University’s World of Ideas. The show features academics and intellectuals presenting lectures and answering questions on issues of national or global importance.

The 3-minute comedy sketch series 11 Central Ave, broadcast on WBEZ in Chicago, was for a time recorded at WBUR.

WBUR began producing podcasts in 2014. Current productions include Dear Sugar Radio, an advice podcast with Cheryl Strayed and Steve Almond; and Modern Love, a partnership with The New York Times.

WBUR first went on the air March 1, 1950 with studios and transmitter located on Exeter Street in Boston. Initially, most of WBUR’s staff were Boston University students, with the station broadcasting primarily Classical, Jazz and BU sporting events. In the early ’60s, the station moved from Exeter Street to the newly renovated School of Communications building on Commonwealth Avenue. By the 1970s water bottle design, WBUR began receiving funding from the Corporation For Public Broadcasting and became a “public radio station” with a professional staff. BU students continued programming on a low-power AM transmitter serving the BU campus. The WBUR studios remain on the BU campus on Commonwealth Avenue in Boston.

During the 1970s and 1980s, the station had several jazz music and classical music programs. The disc jockeys demonstrated a broad knowledge of composers, performers, and the execution of jazz, demonstrating familiarity with such matters as improvisation and shared this with listeners.’ Noteworthy jazz and classical disc jockeys included Dennis Boyer (classical: FM in the PM), Steve Elman (jazz: Spaces), Tony Cennamo (jazz: New Morning and subsequently, a night-time show), James Isaacs (jazz), and Jose Masso (Latin: Con Salsa).

At the end of the 1980s, WBUR began replacing many of its music programs with news and information programming from NPR, Public Radio International and the BBC. This brought WBUR into head-on competition with another major Boston-area NPR station, WGBH. WGBH eventually decided to retain a mostly music (classical music daytime/jazz nights) and cultural programming format (WBUR’s former territory), although WGBH did broadcast NPR’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered.

By the early 1990s, with the exception of Con Salsa on Saturday nights, WBUR had adopted an around-the-clock news and information format. Numerous NPR member stations have since followed WBUR’s lead and eliminated music programming in favor of news and information programming (including rival WGBH, which transferred classical music programming to WCRB following its acquisition in 2009, though it continued to program jazz at night until July 2012; since then, WGBH has only aired a few hours of jazz on weekends). By 2009, the majority of NPR member stations were programming 24/7 news and information formats.[citation needed]

During the 1990s, WBUR began expanding onto Cape Cod. In 1992, it partnered with Cape Cod Regional Technical High School to air WBUR programming over its WCCT-FM when students were not on the air. The following year, WBUR reached similar arrangements with WSDH (91.5 FM) at Sandwich High School and WKKL (90.7 FM) at Cape Cod Community College. In 1997, auto dealer Ernie Boch, Sr. donated WUOK (1240 AM) in West Yarmouth, which had been simulcasting WXTK, to Boston University, which changed its call letters to WBUR and made it a full-time satellite of WBUR-FM (which added the “-FM” suffix to accommodate the West Yarmouth station). (The 1240 AM signal is older than the Boston flagship station, having signed on as WOCB in 1940.) WBUR programming was then dropped from WKKL in 1999, as the 1240 AM signal can be heard in much of WKKL’s coverage area.

On November 27, 2012, WBUR announced that it would acquire WMVY (92.7 FM) in Tisbury (on Martha’s Vineyard) to serve as an additional satellite, under the call letters of WBUA. The transaction was completed on February 8, 2013; at midnight that night, WBUA began to carry the WBUR schedule. WMVY’s adult album alternative programming continues through an online stream run by a nonprofit not associated with WBUR. The acquisition of WBUA rendered the 1240 AM facility redundant; on August 5, 2013, BU announced that it would be sold to Alex Langer, who will program it with Portuguese-language programming similar to that of another Langer station, WSRO. The call letters of 1240 AM were changed to WBAS on February 1, 2014, two days after BU and Langer agreed to a time brokerage agreement. Soon afterward, WSDH also dropped WBUR’s programming. WBUR added another Cape Cod satellite on May 23, 2014 with the sign-on of WBUH in Brewster; this station broadcasts at a higher power than other noncommercial stations on Cape Cod, allowing it to serve the majority of the region (the exception is the Falmouth area, which is within WBUA’s coverage area). BU had sought to build a station on Cape Cod since 2004 and applied for the 89.1 facility in Brewster in 2007, but in March 2011 the Federal Communications Commission issued the construction permit to Home Improvement Ministries, who subsequently sold the permit to BU.

In 1998, WBUR helped to found Rhode Island’s NPR station WRNI. At the time Rhode Island was one of two states lacking an NPR station. WBUR decided to partner with the newly formed Foundation for Ocean State Public Radio to build a state-of-the-art facility at historic Union Station in downtown Providence. Initially, WBUR invested heavily in WRNI’s local programming, but several of these programs were soon canceled. In 2004, WBUR announced suddenly that it planned to drop WRNI by selling it, raising a number of questions. Rhode Islanders were angry at the thought that they would be forced to buy a station they had invested greatly in creating. It was later revealed that the WBUR management believed WRNI was a financial drain and wished to get rid of it. The resulting management turmoil caused the departure of longtime WBUR station manager Jane Christo. WRNI has since moved towards independence and is now mostly autonomous, although it still carries a great deal of WBUR programming.

Between 2001 and June 2002, WBUR estimated that it lost between $1–2 million due to the loss of at least six underwriters and a number of small donors due to a boycott launched by Jewish groups who charged that NPR coverage of the Middle East was biased against Israel. Boston is a major center for the American Jewish community and this made Israel a particularly sensitive subject. The boycott started in October 2001, when two Boston-area businesses ended contracts: WordsWorth Books (now defunct) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and Cognex Corp. in nearby Natick, Massachusetts. The two businesses were reportedly tied with the advocacy group Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA), a persistent critic of NPR’s coverage for almost a decade. CAMERA has demonstrated outside National Public Radio (NPR) stations in 33 cities in the United States.

The CAMERA boycott also extended to the New York Times and Washington Post. Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting and explicitly pro-Palestinian organizations have made contradictory accusations of a pro-Israel bias in NPR’s coverage or imbalance in particular stories. NPR’s ombudsman and an independent reviewer appointed by the agency found “lack of completeness but strong factual accuracy and no systematic bias” in reporting on the controversial issue.

Kick-Ass 2 (film)

May 18th, 2017

Kick-Ass 2 è un film del 2013 scritto e diretto da Jeff Wadlow e con protagonisti Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse e Jim Carrey. È il sequel del film del 2010 Kick-Ass ed è tratto dell’omonimo fumetto scritto da Mark Millar ed illustrato da John Romita Jr..

Dave Lizewski si è ritirato dalla lotta contro il crimine rinunciando al suo costume di Kick-Ass. Le sue azioni hanno però ispirato altri cittadini a diventare supereroi della vita reale. Dave si rivolge a Mindy MacReady per avere un addestramento prima di tornare ad essere Kick-Ass e unirsi al club di questi nuovi supereroi. La fidanzata di Dave, Katie Deauxma, si accorge del suo strano comportamento e, pensando che la stia tradendo con Mindy, lo lascia. Nei panni di Kick-Ass Dave viene accolto alla Justice Forever, gestita dal Colonnello Stars and Stripes. Intanto Chris D’Amico, sconvolto dalla morte della madre, decide di voltare le spalle alla sua precedente incarnazione da eroe e di diventare il primo supercattivo della vita reale, facendosi chiamare Motherfucker, con l’obiettivo di vendicarsi di Kick-Ass.

La Justice Forever serve la comunità, inizialmente dando da mangiare ai poveri e pattugliando le strade, in seguito distruggendo un bordello illegale. Durante i servizi nella Justice Forever, Kick-Ass inizia ad avere un rapporto amoroso con la vigilantessa Night Bitch. Nel frattempo Marcus propone a Mindy di aprirsi con le ragazze della scuola andando al pigiama party organizzata da Brooke. Più avanti Mindy prova ad uscire con un ragazzo, ma questo si rivela un complice di Brooke e l’abbandona nel bel mezzo di un bosco costringendola a tornare a piedi. Motherfucker fonda anche lui un’organizzazione di criminali mascherati nota come “Toxic Megacunts” e come primo colpo contro la Justice Forever riesce a uccidere il Colonnello Stars and Stripes. Continua poi facendo rapire Night Bitch e cercando di stuprarla. Quando giunge la polizia sulla scena, Mother Russia uccide brutalmente diversi agenti mentre fuggono via sweater de piller. La carneficina dei poliziotti causa uno scandalo e le forze dell’ordine si danno l’incarico di arrestare qualunque individuo mascherato a piede libero, supereroe o supercattivo che sia.

A peggiorare le cose Todd si unisce ai Toxic Megacunts, e da lui Motherfucker apprende che l’individuo arrestato dalla polizia non è Dave ma suo padre. Il malvagio fa uccidere in galera il padre di Dave e gli invia una foto rivelando di essere Chris D’Amico. Dave, psicologicamente distrutto da tutti questi disastri, decide di non indossare mai più il costume di Kick-Ass. Durante il funerale del signor Lizewski, dove sono presenti gli altri membri della Justice Forever in lutto per Dave, i seguaci dei Toxic Megacunts li assalgono e riescono a rapire Dave portandolo via in un camioncino, ma a salvarlo interviene Mindy, che abbatte i criminali al termine di uno spericolato inseguimento. Dave ha un ripensamento e Mindy lo convince a tornare ad essere Kick-Ass, così, i membri sopravvissuti della Justice Forever iniziano a prepararsi per la battaglia finale contro i Toxic Megacunts.

Nello scontro che segue, Hit-Girl riesce ad uccidere Mother Russia, mentre Kick-Ass affronta Motherfucker, che – al termine del duello – precipita nella vasca dello squalo nel covo e viene sbranato. Una volta conclusasi la faida contro i Toxic Megacunts, la Justice Forever decide di sciogliersi: ognuno dei membri proseguirà da solo la sua battaglia contro il crimine. Mindy è costretta a trasferirsi fuori città con Marcus, mentre Dave sceglie di continuare a essere Kick-Ass preparandosi un costume nuovo.

In una scena dopo i titoli di coda, viene rivelato che Motherfucker è sopravvissuto, ma è ricoverato in ospedale con il corpo brutalmente mutilato dallo squalo e implora aiuto per raggiungere la sua cannuccia d’acqua e dissetarsi.

Il primo Red Band Trailer ufficiale del film venne distribuito dalla Universal Pictures il 13 marzo 2013. Il successivo 27 marzo venne inoltre distribuito un secondo trailer con protagonista il personaggio di Hit-Girl, seguito poche ore dopo anche dalla versione in italiano dello stesso.

Il film doveva essere distribuito nei cinema statunitensi a partire dal 28 giugno 2013, ma successivamente la Universal Pictures decise di spostare la data di uscita al successivo 16 agosto. La pellicola doveva quindi essere distribuita in anteprima nelle sale britanniche a partire dal 19 luglio 2013, ma anche nel Regno Unito la data di uscita venne posticipata, ed il film è stato quindi distribuito in anteprima a partire dal 14 agosto 2013. In Italia il film è stato distribuito a partire dal 15 agosto.

Il 1º settembre del 2013 Mark Millar all’interno di una intervista alla versione on-line del The Guardian conferma il terzo ed ultimo episodio della saga di Kick-Ass, affermando di aver già completato la sceneggiatura da consegnare ai produttori. Ha inoltre dichiarato che il terzo film sarà il capitolo finale professional football jerseys, oltre che ragioni narrative anche perché i protagonisti Aaron Johnson e Chloë Grace Moretz rischiano di diventare troppo adulti per interpretare in modo credibile i loro personaggi.
