A sneak peak at the new Wii-U gaming console and how Occupy reinvented itself in the wake of Sandy.
As the East Coast continued its recovery from Superstorm Sandy, we visited the Brooklyn neighborhood of Red Hook which was devastated by flood waters. With many residents without power — including those in Red Hook Houses, the largest public housing development Brooklyn — and both big and small business forced to shut down, the Red Hook Initiative organized hundreds of volunteers to work together with FEMA and other local groups to help out the ravaged community. BTR Pulse spoke with everyone from small business owners to government officials on the scene.

Rodney King was found dead at the bottom of his swimming pool on June 17, 2012, at age 47. His beating by LA police in 1991, infamously caught on videotape, sparked a controversial trial and riots which exposed continuing racial tensions at the time. After King’s death, Reverend Al Sharpton said the beating “made America focus on the presence of profiling and police misconduct.” This week on BTR Pulse, Lauren Hawker asks people about their memories of Rodney King and whether they think the issues surrounding those events have changed since then.
