Radio station to halt broadcasts for ‘sensitivity training’

BOSTON (AP) A Boston sports radio station facing criticism after a host used a stereotyped Asian accent to impersonate New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s agent will suspend live programming while employees receive ”sensitivity training.”

WEEI announced Wednesday that live programs will halt from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday while the staff participates in the mandatory, all-day training.

It comes after host Christian Fauria impersonated Don Yee on air last Friday. Yee is of Chinese descent but was born in Sacramento, California.

Fauria, a former Patriots tight end, was suspended for five days and has since apologized. But The Boston Globe reports at least five advertisers have terminated or suspended commercial buys as a result of the incident.

Kenyan anti-poaching patrol gets training and equipment from Orange County CSI

Trained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Crime Scene Investigator (CSI) Ravi Perera can usually be found meticulously investigating crime scenes for a local police department in northwest Orange County.

Twice a year, he can also be found in Kenya, east Africa, training personnel in forensic techniques in support of anti-poaching efforts. He volunteers his time, and arranges for delivery of donated equipment. (The anti-poaching patrols especially need compact digital cameras to record evidence at crime scenes.)

Kenya is surrounded by Somalia, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Uganda, and Tanzania. A portion of the country in the southeast borders the Indian Ocean. It can be a dangerous place.

Hunting wildlife in Kenya is illegal. The only legal shooting of such animals as rhinos or lions is with a camera.

Photography is what first drew Ravi Perera to Africa. Born in the island country of Sri Lanka off the southeast coast of India, Ravi had wanted to
