The Corporation for Public Broadcasting(CPB) is a non-profit corporation created by an act of the United States Congress, funded by the United States’ federal government to promote public broadcasting. Historically, 15~20% of the aggregate revenues of all public broadcasting stations have been funded from federal sources, principally through the CPB.
The CPB’s annual budget is composed almost entirely of an annual appropriation from Congress plus interest on those funds For fiscal year 2010, its appropriation was US $422 million (including $2 million in interest earned). The distribution of these funds was as follows:
- $21.0 million (a maximum of 5% of the total budget) for CPB administrative costs
- $25.2 million (a maximum of 6% of the total budget) for funds to support the Public Broadcasting Service generally, as opposed to specific stations.
- $281.85 million (66.8% of the total budget) for public television, distributed as:
~$210.26 million as grants to individual public television stations
~$71.59 million for public television programming
- $93.94 million (22.3% of total budget) for public radio, distributed as:
~$65.41 million as grants to individual public radio stations
~$21.74 million as grants for radio programming acquisition

How do we rid ourselves of toxic people and energy in our lives? It helps to rely on that inner voice I spoke about earlier. The one that says "I'm done with feeling this way and I'm done with the people who are responsible for it". I refuse to be a part of anyone's own private hell anymore. I refuse to shoulder any responsibility or work of those that haven't the character nor the fortitude to do it for themselves. I rise up high above any situations that don't honor or respect me as the decent human being God made me. I am done.

of the road and “meditate” about it — you hire a mechanic to fix it.
