"if all you ever do is all you've ever done,
than all you'll ever get is all you've ever got"

In an engaging and personal talk -- with cameo appearances from his grandmother and Rosa Parks -- human rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson shares some hard truths about America's justice system, starting with a massive imbalance along racial lines: a third of the country's black male population has been incarcerated at some point in their lives. These issues, which are wrapped up in America's unexamined history, are rarely talked about with this level of candor, insight and persuasiveness.

Mark Rabkin and Joe Rettman established  Deconstruction Management in 2009 to preserve the memories contained within the materials of buildings that have reached the end of their useful life.

Founded on the principles of the triple bottom line of economic prosperity, social equity and environmental stewardship, Deconstruction Management provides a full, turnkey operation for building removal, remediation, renovation and material reclamation.

The moment Rock and Roll changed FOREVER
Ravi Shankar at the Monterey Pop Festival, June 1967

At this seminal event during a tumultuous period in world history, one performance exemplified transcendence and lifted the spirit of the audience.  Ravi Shankar, so skilled on the mystical sitar as to leave his audience in pure shock, amazement and awe, so effortlessly embodies our collective transition from what was to what could be.  Over the course of this weekend, we met Janis, Jimi, The Who and Otis Redding.  Sadly, we would lose three of them within a few short years, but their influence on our culture is undeniable.  Freedom.  Expression.  Adventure.  Passion.
