Bellevue’s SWAT Team Comes To A Seattle Neighborhood
Columbia City residents heard Monday night from Seattle and Bellevue officials about a shooting involving Bellevue police that happened in Seattle late last month. According to KUOW’s Patricia Murphy, the Seattle Police Department is investigating the incident.

Japanese Farm Food
Nancy Singleton Hachisu moved from California to Japan intending to stay a year. Instead she fell in love with the culture, the food and a local farmer. Now — many years and three kids later — she lives on an organic farm in an 80-year-old traditional Japanese farmhouse. She writes about life, love and food in her cookbook "Japanese Farm Food."

Greendays Gardening Panel
Gardening is not just growing vegetables, pruning ornamentals or planting natives. Modern organic gardeners are trying to incorporate practices and aestheticism that works in any kind of garden. Our gardening panel is just the group to bring the ideas together this week and every week on KUOW. They answer your gardening questions live at 10:40 a.m. Call 206.543.5869 or email weekday@kuow.org.

Progressive theologian Jim Wallis thinks America needs to reacquaint itself with the notion of the “the common good." He says that means protecting the poor, fostering civil discourse, building economic trust and faith in democracy and working together to create healthier families and lifestyles.

He writes: “People were made for family, community, and human flourishing, not consumerism, materialism, addiction, and empty overwork.” Jim Wallis is editor-in-chief of Sojourners magazine. He joins us to discuss his latest book, "On God’s Side: What Religion Forgets and Politics Hasn’t Learned about Serving the Common Good."

In 2010, emerging economies accounted for almost 40 percent of the world's gross domestic product — twice as much as they did in 1990. Today, one in four Fortune 500 firms comes from emerging markets. How far can growth carry nations out of poverty and toward a strong economic foundation? We hear what the economic successes of developing countries can teach the developed world from Peter Blair Henry of NYU’s Stern School of Business.

Later this year, Washington state voters may get the chance to weigh in on whether genetically modified foods should be labeled as such. Supporters of proposed Initiative 522 say consumers are owed the information about what's in their food. I-522's opponents say there are no known risks to GMOs, so why label them? We look at the science of genetically modified organisms and how I-522 would affect consumers with professor Toby Bradshaw of the University of Washington and Dr. Michael Hansen of Consumers Union.
