Oil Barge Under Construction In Bellingham Water: The oil drilling that's scheduled to get under way in the Arctic Ocean this month has a big Puget Sound connection. A Seattle shipyard refurbished the two drill rigs that are currently making the long sea journey to the Arctic. A third rig is designed to stop any oil spills from the first two. It's currently under construction, and under scrutiny, on the Bellingham waterfront. KUOW's John Ryan has the story.

How To Get Involved In Global Health: Over the past seven years, the number of global health jobs in Washington have doubled to boast more than 5,000 workers in the state, supporting an additional 17,000 workers around the world. But you don't have to be employed by a global health advocate to be involved in improving the state of global health, and there is an event this weekend that is trying to spread that idea.

Celebrating Woody Guthrie: Woody Guthrie was born in Okemah, Oklahoma, 100 years ago tomorrow. People have been celebrating around the country with music festivals and lectures. But as NPR's Vince Pearson reports, Guthrie was also a gifted visual artist and recorded thousands of songs over a career that lasted just over 15 years.
