Australian Hula Hooper Marawa Cup Talks About Global Circus Performers on The world for 5-6-14

PRI's The World - with Host Marco Werman  

If you didn't get the memo on climate change, President Obama will be out in front of the cameras today, making sure you get it now.

We'll dig into the details of the report with our environment editor Peter Thomson.

Scottish researcher Zara Gladman leads a double life. By day, she works for a non-profit Science festival. She's voting "yes" for Scottish independence in the fall. By night, though, she transforms into Lady Alba, a Lady Ga-Ga knock-off who croons songs about voting "no" on independence.

Also today, Australian hoola-hooper Marawa Cup tells us about the global world of circus performers who routinely cross borders to train and perform.
