AIR DATE: October 15, 2010

Technology can be a tool for adjusting global inequality and Nevada is providing one small example of that change. A local manufacturer is making solar lamps to help salt farmers in India. We talk with the manufacturer, one of the salt farmers and representatives of the foundations that are making this connection possible. President Bill Clinton is hosting a reception on Tuesday evening to raise money for the saltLantern initiative.

GUEST
Jan Jones, Senior VP, Harrahs Entertainment and Harrah's Foundation
Karen Tramontano, Pres, Global Fairness Initiative
Trupti Upadhyaya, member, Self-Employed Women's Assoc

COMMENTS:
I am humbled and amazed by this wonderful program. Shedding a little light - from Nevada to India - for only a few dollars per solar lantern will have life changing results for these poor families in India.
