In a 22-8 vote, the NBA Board of Governors voted to keep the Sacramento Kings in Sacramento. Investor Chris Hansen said the struggle makes the payoff sweeter and that he hopes the Sonics will return to Seattle eventually. We’ll talk with <a href="http://http://www.capradio.org/5090">Ben Adler</a> from Capital Public Radio in Sacramento and <a href="http://sportspressnw.com/author/artthiel">Art Thiel </a>in Seattle on how the decision came to be.<br><br><strong>Art Of Our City: The Massive Monkees</strong><br>Earlier this year the hip-hop dance troupe Massive Monkees opened their first official dance studio, called the Beacon.&nbsp; As part of a Seattle program to invigorate empty storefronts in the city, the Monkees applied for and received a three-month residency in a storefront in the Chinatown-International District.&nbsp; Over the course of that residency, the Beacon offered classes for students as young as&nbsp;three up to their 50s and beyond. Now Massive Monkees' official residency is over, but they have the opportunity to make the Beacon permanent.&nbsp; The landlord has agreed to a longer lease with one catch:&nbsp; They need to raise some money for capital repairs.&nbsp; To that end, they’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign. We revisit a tour we took to the Beacon in February of this year.</p><p><strong>The Book Of Woe</strong><br>The American Psychiatric Association is currently revising the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, a tool used by clinicians to diagnose patients with mental disorders. According to <a href="http://www.garygreenbergonline.com/">Gary Greenberg</a> it is more like an “anthology of suffering.” Greenberg is a psychotherapist and author of the new book, “The Book of Woe: The DSM and the Unmaking of Psychiatry.” In his book he explains the history of the DSM and how the current revision of the DSM-5 is, as he argues, the most flawed yet. He says the DSM turns suffering into a commodity, leading to over- and misdiagnosis of mental illness.
