With the release of Scandalous earlier this spring, the Austinites in Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears sound bolder than ever. While their new record maintains the soulful energy of its predecessor, Tell 'Em What Your Name Is!, Lewis and the band exude rock grit on Scandalous — they prove as much in this, their latest interview and performance at WFUV.
Four years after nine coal miners and mine rescuers died underground in the Crandall Canyon mine in Utah, federal prosecutors say they're still not ready to file criminal charges or to conclude no charges are warranted.
Federal authorities have launched a nationwide crack down on scam artists who prey on immigrants hoping to become U.S. citizens. Officials say the problem is growing.
Con artists promise to help illegal immigrants stay in the country legally but in the end leave, the people penniless and in more trouble with the immigration service.

The Syrian government has banned most international media, and Syria's state TV presents an official version contradicted by an anti-regime protest movement that bolsters its narrative with video clips and Facebook postings.
In neighboring Lebanon, even news editors supportive of President Bashar Assad's regime say Syria is losing credibility in the media war.
A lot of companies try to instill loyalty in their employees. But it's safe to say few of them took it as far as IBM.
