The Jury is Out on Access Utah Thursday

The not guilty verdict in the trial of Roberto Miramontes Roman for the murder of Millard County Deputy Sheriff Josie Greathouse Fox shocked many in the community. Now some of the jurors are talking about their deliberations.  This case got us wondering:  How do juries come to their decisions? What influences those decisions? Can we have confidence in our jury system?  On Thursday’s AU we’ll talk with Salt Lake Tribune reporter Aaron Falk; and University of Texas Associate Professor of Sociology Mary Rose, who has studied how juries reach decisions.

Bioneers Presents Beloved Community: Hello, My Other Self

The Bioneers Radio Series brings us Beloved Community: Hello, My Other Self.

In today’s radically shifting world, the name of the game is resilience - the capacity of both human and ecological systems to absorb disturbance, roll with the punches and come up standing. Resilience arises from building community - enduring relationships and networks that hold cultural memory in the same way seeds regenerate a forest after a fire.

Guns and Violence on Access Utah Tuesday

People often join the terms guns and violence together, but is this a correct association? With the dealdy shootings at the Empire State building, the Sikh Temple, and the Aurora movie theater,  headlines and content connect the two.  Is America more violent than other countries? Where do guns fit in? Are guns to blame? What should we do, if anything?

All About Vegetables on AU Monday

Cantaloupes are ripening all over Utah.

Wow, most gardens are displaying green, green, green. Hopefully, it’s not the green of weeds. How do you know when it’s time to pick something? Today USU Extension Vegetable Specialist, Dan Drost, is in studio for the entire hour.  When it comes to knowing when something is ripe, the sampling test may not always be practical. You don’t want to leave a cantaloupe on the vine with a bite taken out of it. On the other hand, unless you like them green, it’s pretty easy to tell when to pick a tomato. And I’ve never met an immature pepper that I didn’t like.
