Ferguson Streets Explode and More November 28, 2014 | 9:00 am
On Between the Lines

"The real challenge here is to take this understandable and justifiable frustration and anger, and channel that into changing the system. Into changing the way police forces do their work, the way police officers are recruited, the kind of oversight that exists. To change the entire culture of fear and hatred between races that allows this kind of a situation to develop."
– Rev. Peter Morales, president of the Unitarian Universalist Association on the rising anger over police violence in communities of color after the grand jury in Ferguson voted not to indict police Officer Darren Wilson

Wisdom For A Global Tribe with Alan Briskin December 9, 2014 | 5:00 am
On New Dimensions

“The collective wisdom suggests that we become mindful of our own behavior in groups, and that groups are the unit by which we can create change. So notions of suspending our uncertainty, notions of respect for others, for being patient with the dissonance we may feel with those we disagree with, become disciplines and practices of collective wisdom.”

Planting Buildings: The Living Building Challenge December 26, 2014 | 9:30 am
On Bioneers

A living building is like a flower, planted and rooted to its place. It collects its energy from the sun. It harvests its water from the rain. This building does not pollute. It engages actively with the environmental around it. And it’s beautiful and inspiring. This is nature’s blueprint for building a better world, says visionary architect Jason McLennan. He designed the Living Building Challenge 2.0 to raise the bar on green building: meet or exceed what nature provides. While the standards seem impossibly high, it may be simpler than we imagined.
