This week our NEWZ attention is focused on the environment in places like Colorado where there is a hot debate over drilling on public land. While in the Brazilian state of Pará the world's 3rd largest dam is having a huge impact on everything. In the realm of science the EU Commission has awarded some big funds to major research projects. Reporters Without Borders has released a very grim 2012 report. And speaking of difficult conversations, Madge Weinstein released a special podcast on the Algerian Hostage Crisis which we talk about. The week's Newz Source is Der Spiegel International, listen to find out why!
