WMXP-LP

WMXP-LP is a low-powered FM community radio station located in Greenville, South Carolina. The station broadcasts on 95.5 FM with an ERP of 100 watts. WMXP-LP signed on the air June 10, 2007; the station is owned by the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement. It was launched with the help of hundreds of local and national volunteers at the eleventh community radio barnraising of the Prometheus Radio Project, it is a non-commercial station, dedicated to African-American culture programming, claiming that it "will give a voice to the voiceless, a home to knowledge, community enrichment and social justice advocacy."According to the FCC database, WMXP-LP went silent on May 20, 2011. No official reason is known. Station returned to the air on May 18, 2012 from a new transmitter site via FCC Special Temporary Authority for lower antenna height while new 120 foot tower is being constructed. Signal strength is strong in most of the city due to unique audio processing and temporarily monophonic signal.

Surjo R. Soekadar

Surjo Raphael Soekadar is a German physician and development aid worker. He studied medicine in Mainz and Baltimore and graduated under Herta Flor, ZI Mannheim, with a doctorate in clinical neuropsychology. From 2005 to 2018, he worked as a physician at the University of Tübingen, where he became head of the Applied Neurotechnology Lab in 2011. In 2018, he was appointed Germany's first Professor of Clinical Neurotechnology at the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin; the professorship is supported by the Einstein Foundation Berlin. Surjo Soekadar has been involved for many years in the field of development cooperation dealing with establishing youth health centers in Africa, South America and Asia. In 2001 he co-founded the Global Contract Foundation and served as board member of various non-governmental organizations, e.g. "Options For Life International" and the Global Contract Foundation. In 2004 he became the youngest creative member of the Club of Budapest after having drafted the first outline of the Global Marshall Plan Initiative.

Scientifically, he examines the adaptation of the brain to changing environmental conditions. He is working on the development and testing of clinical brain-machine interfaces and their combination with non-invasive brain stimulation. In 2016, he and his team enabled quadriplegic patients with complete finger paralysis to eat and drink independently using a non-invasive brain/neural hand exoskeleton. In 2019, he demonstrated feasibly to record the Bereitschaftspotential outside the lab and under extreme conditions, namely before 192-meter bungee jumping; as part of a research fellowship at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, he and his colleagues were the first to record neuromagnetic brain activity in the millisecond range while the brain of a human subject underwent transcranial direct current stimulation. It is expected that this new method will contribute to a better understanding of electrical brain stimulation’s clinical success and to solving various fundamental research questions in neuroscience.

In 2012 he received the International Annual BCI Research Award
