  1. Hi Mark, Would you be available for an interview on Al Jazeera English today on Chile?

    Please get in touch and let me know.

  2. Someone suggested your blog as a good place for info about coal mining in the comments section of this article that I just published called “Life and Death Underground: Media Missed Moment to Show Truth”
