Wednesday, May 1, 2019 – "The Social Impact of Genetic Ancestry Testing" is the subject of the annual Community Lecture organized by the College of Science and Mathematics at NDSU. The speaker this year is Wendy Roth, Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of British Columbia and Faculty Associate at the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies. She joins us with a preview. ~~~ Farmers and ranchers who have been dealing with the fallout from Missouri River flooding also have been grappling with low commodity prices, trade tariffs and high property taxes. In a business that requires a lot of faith and hard work, it’s not easy for some operations to pay the bills, much less turn a profit, in the current agricultural environment. For Harvest Public Media, Jack Williams has more. ~~~ There's a new exhibit that just opened at the North Dakota Museum of Art called Power/Empower.  Bill Thomas was intrigued and went to look at it and talk to people involved -- it's a dynamic, varied show.
