Driving South on the interstate I was impressed at just how flooded the cornfields were. I grabbed my camera and started filming. The brown stuff on top of the water is the remnants of corn stocks and other plant materials that got pushed near the road by the flow of water.

I don't want to even think about how the damage to all of Iowa's cornfields is going to translate into higher food and ethanol prices. The term "Knee high by July" is not meant to describe the height of water in the fields. (via gene5335 on YouTube)

Two Iowa Boy Scouts, interviewed by NBC's Today Show, discuss what happed when a tornado came through their camp killing four people and injuring more than 50.

One of the scouts, only 13, explains how it would have been worse had the storm came through any other populated area rather than their camp - because, "we were prepared for this." The scout was referring to the extensive first aid training each scout is taught and all the supplies available which probably saved many lives that day.

The Boy Scout Motto is Be Prepared, and it appears that is exactly what these scouts were when disaster struck. The Boy Scouts of America is one of the few organizations which teach real life lessons and values. (via georgiahunter4333 on YouTube)

Since 1861, almost 3,400 men and one woman have received the Medal of Honor for heroic actions on the battlefield. This is the story of one of those recipients, Sal Giunta of Hiawatha, Iowa.

On October 25, 2007 Specialist, now Staff Sergeant, Sal Giunta was on patrol with men from the 173rd Airborne Brigade in the Korengal Valley of Afghanistan. They were among three platoons of men that left before day break to march up the valley in the Kunar Province which is on the border with Pakistan.

Staff Sgt Sal Giunta, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team: "The day was like any other, I guess, October day in Afghanistan. It starts off cold, cool in the morning and then the day heated up. It's hot in the sun. We weren't standing. The walk out there took us maybe an hour and a half or 2 hours because it was still dark and the climb was a pretty steep climb."

In his second deployment to Afghanistan, Giunta was the leader of a four-man rifle team. The men in Giunta's platoon were tasked with watching over another group from the 173rd that would setup a short distance down the mountainside.

Though ready for action, the men spent an uneventful day waiting and watching. For the men in Battle Company, 2nd Battalion, 503rd infantry, 173rd Airborne Brigade, this day would end in a way no one expected.

As the sun went down, the men of Battle Company packed up their equipment and began to move down the trail toward home. A full moon was coming up in the night sky.

Staff Sgt Sal Giunta, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team: Simple hand and arm signals, simple, you know, wrap it up, we're going, heading back, it's gonna be good. At that point, it's still too early to think about cold water. It's just finish and go back to where we started from this morning. Once we get in, then we start thinkin' about what makes us happy."

They walked only a short distance when the two squads Giunta was with were ambushed by Taliban fighters. The gun fire was intense. The insurgents used rocket propelled grenades on the trapped soldiers. Tracer rounds, normally indicating the path of every 3rd or 4th bullet, appeared as an impenetrable wall of red.

Staff Sgt Sal Giunta, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team: I was in a good position. I had a good position for myself. Drop down, return fire. Saw kind of the bigger picture of what was happening, because in this way it's all in front of us as opposed to the rounds were coming left to right, and now we're seeing flashes. We're actually -- it's all clicking on how close this is and about how many people we're up against."

Training took over. Private Kaleb Casey and Private Garrett Clary, two of the soldiers with Giunta, began firing back. Staff Sergeant Erick Gallardo, the squad leader was seeing to the rest of the men in the two rifle teams.

Staff Sgt Sal Giunta, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team: "There's no thinking about tomorrow. There's no thinking about the next minute. Your body's reacting, signals are being used, shooting's happening. It's all trained. It's all reaction."

Giunta was hit in the front plate of his armored vest but was unhurt. Then he saw Staff Sgt. Gallardo coming down the trail. Gallardo was hit in the helmet by small arms fire. Giunta ran out from behind what little cover he had to help the fallen soldier.

Staff Sgt Sal Giunta, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team: "This is all fast. It's all still happening. Then jump up to help him up. I didn't think he was gonna get up. I was just gonna grab him and pull him back. That's my next move."

The soldiers gathered up what ammunition and hand grenades they had and decided to make a move to their buddies who were cut-off farther down the trail. The small group threw their grenades in three volleys moving toward the enemy gun fire.

After moving to their last position, the soldiers came upon Specialist Franklin Eckrode who had been wounded. Despite all the action around him, Giunta realized he was not under fire. The young Specialist prepared to run to the place where he thought Sgt Josh Brennan, leader of the other rifle team, would be fighting the enemy. Brennan and Giunta were more than just two soldiers -- they were friends.
When he arrived at where Brennan should have been he noticed two men dragging a third man away. It was then he realized the two men were enemy fighters and the third man being dragged away was Sgt. Brennan.

Staff Sgt Sal Giunta, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team: " And as I'm running, I noticed, you know, they're not friendlies, and that's not an Afghani that they're carrying. So I just run and shoot, shoot and run. They weren't ready for that. They both had their guns slung on their backs. They had a guy in their arms. So I just ran up on 'em, just shootin'. Shoot to kill. That's what time it is. Time to get rid of them."

After the Taliban retreated, Giunta saw to the seriously injured Brennan, who had suffered multiple shrapnel and bullet wounds. Giunta called for a medic and Sergeant Gallardo. Little did he know, the team's medic, Specialist Hugo Mendoza had already been killed.

Giunta kept Brennan occupied with small-talk while waiting for another medic to arrive.

Staff Sgt Sal Giunta, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team: "Just kind of brought up, you know, Wisconsin, going home. Trying to laugh about how he knows he's gonna go home, he's gonna be drunk in a week. And he's still talking like, "Oh, man, you're gonna go home, you're gonna go to Wisconsin." He's like, "yeah." He's not talking a lot. It's a forced talk but he's still responding, he's still squeezing my hand, and he's still with it.

I want to say the whole time leading up to that was less than, you know, maybe 15 seconds, maybe 30 seconds, maybe 100 lifetimes. I don't know. You know, it's all -- my time frame, my idea of time during the time during that process is all out of whack. I don't know how long."

Brennan was air lifted for treatment but died from his wounds some time later.
Back in Iowa, his parents, Steve and Rosemary Giunta, were unaware of what had happened. Sal made several phone calls home before he was able to tell the whole story.

Rose Giunta, Hiawatha, Iowa: "He called the house, and it wasn't to tell us what went on. It was just to get some relief from all the stuff that was happening right there. And when he called, I could tell. His voice was different. He shouldn't have been calling me at that time, from what I could tell, because days previous their group had gotten a break.

Steve Giunta, Hiawatha, Iowa: "Rose just finally said, 'You know, you need to tell me what happened. My mind is just going in so many different directions. You need to set it straight.' And that's when he replied, 'I'm gonna tell you, and I'm only gonna tell you one time. and I don't want you to ask any questions.' You know, we did everything we could to not gasp, not go, 'What were you thinking? Why did you do that?" We just listened. When it was done, we just told him that we loved him. We told him that we were--you know, thank god that he was safe. we prayed for the people that he has lost in his life, because -- you know, at that time we were just dealing with that deep emotion of how blessed we felt, but how utterly sad we felt that not everybody had their whole family together any longer..' “

For his actions under fire, Staff Sergeant Sal Giunta will be awarded the military's highest award, the Medal of Honor.

Giunta is humble about the honor that is being bestowed upon him.
Staff Sgt Sal Giunta, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team: "Why do they want to give this to me? Because I've got two good buddies that I lost that night. I don't deserve it. Don't give me the highest medal. I don't need a medal. I didn't do anything for a medal. I didn't do anything in particular for Brennan. I did what I was supposed to do. If I didn't do what I was supposed to do, it would be hard for me to call myself a professional. It would be hard for me to accept the paycheck that I'm gonna get."

On Tuesday, November 16, 2010 President Barack Obama presented Giunta with the Medal of Honor in a ceremony at the White House. Staff Sergeant Giunta is the first living recipient of the nation's highest award for bravery under fire since the Vietnam War.

President Barack Obama: "It is my privilege to present our nation’s highest military decoration, the Medal of Honor, to a soldier as humble as he is heroic: Staff Sergeant Salvatore A. Giunta. Now, I’m going to go off-script here for a second and just say I really like this guy."

At a time when most people could not read stained glass windows were sometimes referred to as "Biblia pauperum", or the bible of the poor. The pictorial art found in stain glass windows was the literature of the poor and way of learning and keeping the scripture.

Today, even though most people know how to read, there is still demand for those who can create stain glass.

One of the biggest studios in the U.S. is in Fairfield, Iowa where windows have been created and refurbished for business and churches from Texas to Alaska and all the way from New York to Hawaii.

It's a craft that is at least a thousand years old and one that has changed very little over the centuries.

Ron Bovard lets us tour his studio where we'll find out what high tech changes have come to this ancient craft and what makes the work his studio is doing different.

First Lady Michelle Obama gave the commencement address at the University of Northern Iowa on Saturday, May 7, 2011 in the UNI-Dome. Her audience included nearly 2-thousand new graduates, their families and UNI faculty and staff members. Mrs. Obama, who grew up in Chicago, studied sociology and African-American studies at Princeton University followed by a degree from Harvard Law School. Her career has included work for AmeriCorps, Chicago City Hall, a Law firm, and the University of Chicago. Since becoming First Lady, she has been leading efforts to reduce childhood obesity and to encourage volunteerism and community service.


Civility is a polite act or expression. This applies to our daily lives as we try to extend courtesies, even when we find out someone may not agree with our view of the world. As we’ve found, the more we associate with people who think and act like we do, the less civil we are to others.

This Conversation on Civility program uses portions of three different speakers to spur discussion between J. Barry Griswell, president of the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines; Scott Raecker, executive director of Character Counts in Iowa; Connie Ryan Terrell, executive director of Interfaith Alliance of Iowa and Kathy Obradovich, political columnist, Des Moines Register.

This program also includes an interview with Joe Shannahan and Chuck Larson, Jr. The two are still partisan to the Democratic and Republican parties, respectively, but collectively, they’re in business together in a public policy and consulting firm. How does this work when two political rivals go into business together?


Is the best word to describe our country’s mood, fractious? We assemble a panel to discuss the topic of civility. Our in-studio guests are: J. Barry Griswell, president of the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines; Scott Raecker, executive director of Character Counts in Iowa; Connie Ryan Terrell, executive director of Interfaith Alliance of Iowa and Kathy Obradovich, political columnist, Des Moines Register.

Also included is a short interview with two business partners, Joe Shannahan and Chuck Larson, Jr and how they’ve put past political barbs aside and gone into business together.


Joe Shannahan has served as communications director for the Iowa Democratic Party, part of Gov. Tom Vilsack's campaign and the 2002 Tom Harkin senate campaign. Chuck Larson, Jr was a state representative, state senator and head of the Republican Party of Iowa. Both maintain their partisan ways, but have gone into business with one another in a public policy/consulting firm. How can they do business together under one roof? Has the tenor of the debate changed or is it the same knife fight under the golden dome? This segment is a full interview with the two from their West Des Moines office.

John Agyekum Kufuor and Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva received the 2011 World Food Prize for their personal commitment and visionary leadership while serving as the presidents of Ghana and of Brazil, respectively, in creating and implementing government policies to alleviate hunger and poverty in their countries.

The significant achievements of these two former heads of state illustrate that transformational leadership truly can effect positive change and greatly improve people’s lives.

The 24th annual World Food Prize ceremony was held in Des Moines, Iowa on Thursday, October 13, 2011.

The World Food Prize was founded by Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and Iowan Norman Borlaug. After winning the Nobel Prize in 1970 for his achievements in agricultural research, Borlaug envisioned a separate international award to recognize those who have made significant contributions to improve the world's food supply.


John Agyekum Kufuor e Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva receberam o Prêmio Mundial da Alimentação em 2011 pelo compromisso pessoal e liderança visionária enquanto serviam, respectivamente, como os presidentes do Gana e do Brasil, na criação e implementação de políticas públicas para aliviar a fome e a pobreza em seus países.

As significativas conquistas destes dois ex-chefes de Estado mostram que lideranças políticas podem realmente trazer mudanças positivas, melhorando significativamente a vida das pessoas.

In this documentary film, narrated by Academy Award nominee and veterans’ advocate Gary Sinise, Iowa’s World War II veterans tell their incredible stories of brutal combat as they prepare to make the highly anticipated trip to Washington, D.C. to visit the National World War II Memorial. On the trip, survivors also visit Arlington National Cemetery. Among many moving stories, the film follows one veteran who found the marker – previously unseen to him – of his own son who served in the Vietnam War.

In 2005, Earl Morse co-founded the not-for-profit Honor Flight Network, a national volunteer effort that ensured that tens of thousands of veterans would be flown free of charge to Washington, D.C. to visit their World War II Memorial. Most had never seen the memorial before.

DES MOINES, IOWA - Live coverage of the World Food Prize, honoring outstanding individuals who strive to improve the quality, quantity or availability of food throughout the world.

The 2012 World Food Prize was awarded to Dr. Daniel Hillel for his role in conceiving and implementing a radically new mode of bringing water to crops i­­n arid and dry land regions - known as “micro-irrigation.”

Dr. Hillel’s pioneering scientific work in Israel revolutionized food production, first in the Middle East, and then in other regions around the world over the past five decades. His work laid the foundation for maximizing efficient water usage in agriculture, increasing crop yields, and minimizing environmental degradation.

On this week’s Moyers & Company, Bill explores a judicial system under partisan attack. Thirty-eight states now elect their high court judges. Over the last decade, $200 million -- much of it secret and tied to partisan agendas -- has poured into these judicial campaigns. In Florida, Pennsylvania, and Iowa, for example, justices are being targeted by radical groups that abhor judicial independence and want the courts to reflect their own political biases.

In Iowa, a state whose judicial system has been praised for its fairness and impartiality, the political and religious Right ousted three justices in 2010 over marriage equality, and is now trying to take down a fourth over the same issue. But this time a bipartisan coalition called Justice Not Politics is fighting back. Its co-founders -- Democrat Sally Pederson and Republican Joy Corning, each of whom served Iowa for eight years as lieutenant governor -- talk with Bill about what's at stake when justices are at the mercy of partisan passions and money in politics.

Join Abby from IPTV as she helps explain some of the interesting characteristics of electric motors and magnetism.

Iowa Common Core Science Standards

Physical Science:

Essential Concept and/or Skill: Understand and apply knowledge of sound, light, electricity, magnetism, and heat.

Essential Concept and/or Skill: Understand and apply knowledge of motions and forces.
Principles that underlie the concept and/or skill include but are not limited to:

Electric and Magnetic Forces
The electric force is a universal force that exists between any two charged objects. Opposite charges attract, while like charges repel. The strength of the force is proportional to the charges, and, as with gravitation, inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.

Electricity and magnetism are two aspects of a single electromagnetic force. Moving electric charges produce magnetic forces, and moving magnets produce electric forces. These effects help students understand electric motors and generators.

On January 25, 2014 Sam Koltinsky, producer of the documentary “America's Darling: The Story of Jay N. "Ding" Darling,” set up an exhibit of the The Hidden Works of Jay N. “Ding” Darling at the Herbert Hoover Presidential Museum and Library in West Branch, Iowa.

The exhibit, on display at the museum until March 23, 2014, showcases a collection of artifacts, including many of Ding Darling’s personal and family objects, cartoons, sketches, and the newly uncovered original printing plates from The Des Moines Register. It has been dedicated to Kip Koss, Darling’s only grandson, who recently passed away.

As a political cartoonist, Jay N. “Ding” Darling worked for the Sioux City Journal, The Des Moines Register, and the Globe, in New York. During his career, his work appeared in more than 100 newspapers across the United States, and he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize twice, in 1924 and again in 1942. Throughout his life Darling also devoted his talents to conservation education and to developing programs and institutions that would benefit wildlife. The National Wildlife Federation, the Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Unit Program, the Federal Duck Stamp Program, all owe their early existence to Darling.

DNA is the root of all inheritance and the key to understanding the basics of all biological inheritance and genetics.


Genetic engineering changes or manipulates genes in order to achieve specific results, and there are many ways to "engineer" genetic material including fixing defective genes, replacing missing genes, copying or cloning genes, or combining genes.
