On February 11, Egyptians celebrated in Tahrir Square after Hosni Mubarak stepped down from his role as president. Jigar Mehta was watching the celebration on television, and he noticed many people in the crowd filming the celebration with their mobile phones. "I thought, crap, if they're recording this, they've probably been recording for the last 18 days," he says about the demonstrators who began protesting January 25.

Long before there was a California or even a United States, the Gabrieleño Indians had a community of over 45 villages dotting the San Fernando Valley and present day Glendale, and the River was their foundation, providing water and a diverse selection ... of food.
