Maybe, Just Maybe... A Deal for SAG

For more than a year now the Screen Actors Guild has been in negotiations with both studio heads and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists to broker a new contract, with disagreements over digital media a major point of conflict. SAG has been holding out and holding strong for so long that it seemed not much progress was being made. But now the ballots have been mailed to 110,000 union members, interim national executive director David White has hope for ratification, while SAG president Alan Rosenberg thinks it won't pass. Are these two looking at things from the opposite side of the mirror -- what does one see that the other doesn't?

Happy Birthday from Hizbollah

Neil MacFarquhar has been living in the mid-east on and off since he was 3 years old. MacFarquhar was the mid-east correspondent for the New York Times for five years and currently holds the position of United Nations bureau chief for the paper. In his latest book, The Media Relations Department of Hizbollah Wishes You a Happy Birthday: Unexpected Encounters in the Changing Middle East. MacFarquhar delivers personal accounts of his life in Libya as a child, as an adult, as a reporter and tries to show what he refers to as the, "...underexposed side of the Middle East."
