A Rare Find in NYC Theatre

(0) Comments | Posted February 12, 2011 | 7:10 PM

Last week, I attended the opening night of "A Girl Wrote It", an evening of four One-Acts presented by Wide Eyed Productions. As you might guess from the title, each of the plays is penned by a woman.

Upon entering the Red Room Theatre (fittingly just upstairs from...

All It Takes Is All You've Got

Dinosaurs were my thing. Not cowboys. The 6-year-old me thought that dinosaurs, with their many shapes and sizes, their teeth and spikes, their tails, wings, and fins were way cooler than some dude on a horse with a hat and a gun. Luckily Jim Owen, the author of The Try,...

This is the premise for a fantastic episode of Captain Planet...

This blog was originally posted at TheSocioCapitalist.

My dad has always wondered about bottled water. He jokes that if he went to a bottled water factory, he'd probably find a guy out back filling thousands of bottles of water with a garden hose. It's funny 'cause its true.

Celebrate Urban Agriculture

(4) Comments | Posted October 26, 2010 | 2:35 PM

Tomato plants growing in old coolers, herb gardens outside of kitchen windows, and pies made from fruit found around town. This is the world of urban agriculture: a counter-intuitive paring of words with the potential to bring a connection to the land, to the heart of the city.

In 1990, September 15th fell on a Saturday. And it was on that morning, 20 years ago, that a generation of kids was introduced to a new superhero. Unlike the characters they had met before, this superhero came into existence when - and only when - kids like them combined...

5 Senators Who Need to Get in the Climate Legislation Game

(0) Comments | Posted May 13, 2010 | 1:37 PM

It is rare to hear about "back benchers" in Congress. Generally these are members who, on one issue, or on all issues, don't make much noise, go with the flow, and try to avoid controversy. In sports, the term "bench warmer" is similar, but rather than a lack of desire...

Behind closed doors, Valero's company practices are just as dirty and threatening as the smoggy skies and health concerns courtesy of its fossil fuel emissions. While the company has...

Hey CA - Don't Get Fooled

The Dirty Energy Proposition (aka the California Jobs Initiative) blew by its self-imposed signature collection deadline last week. The campaign is working to gather the more than 400,000 signatures needed to get the proposal to kill California's landmark climate and clean energy law on the November ballot.
