Suzette Grillot and Rebecca Cruise talk about the righting of the Costa Concordia cruise liner off the coast of Italy, and the two-hour outage of Iran's internet firewall that allowed citizens access to social media.
Later, a conversation with New Zealand filmmaker Costa Botes. He’s directed documentaries about Canadian sled dogs, a cross-dressing attorney, and the inventor of the Jelly Belly jelly bean.
Engineers are declaring success after the Costa Concordia cruise ship was pulled upright during a 19-hour operation to wrench it from its side where it capsized last year off Tuscany.
Rebecca Cruise, the Assistant Dean of the College of International Studies at the University of Oklahoma, says the project now allows for a renewed search for the two bodies that were never recovered from the 32 dead, and for the ship to eventually be towed away.
“For the families of the victims to move beyond this, there is some hope that they will be able to find some of these remains,” Cruise says.
