Easy Change Floating Photo Wall I'm a part-time professional photographer and I love taking pictures! Sometimes I work really hard to take an idea in my head and turn it into a finished picture.

Addicting Info – Rich Guys Try To Kick Poor Kids Off Their Own Playing Field, Get A Life Lesson Instead (VIDEO) This is what happened when a group of wealthy, white tech workers in San Francisco attempted to kick a group of local kids off their playing field — they got a life lesson they’ll never forget. The Mission Playing Field, enjoyed for decades as a shared public space, is being privatized by San Francisco Parks & Recreation in collusion with the private City Fields Foundation. Without community approval, the private foundation decided to issue costly permits to use the small traditional pick-up soccer field. So, the inevitable happens and the entitled show up and try to kick the neighborhood kids off of the field at prime time without even showing their “permit.” They don’t want to wait their turn and play with everyone else.

Amanda Lindhout, Writer of The House in the Sky, Shares the Story of Her Terrifying Kidnapping in Somalia - Magazine Photographed by Norman Jean Roy, Vogue, September 2013 Kidnapped in Somalia, Amanda Lindhout spent fifteen months in terrifying captivity. Only after meeting journalist Sara Corbett did she feel ready to tell her story. Every life is made up of a series of decisions—good ones, bad ones, opportunities of a lifetime, and those, in retrospect, that look extraordinarily ill considered. Five years ago, Amanda Lindhout, a struggling 27-year-old Canadian journalist hoping to make a name for herself, decided to visit Mogadishu, Somalia, a gorgeous wreck of a city perched on the Indian Ocean along Africa’s east coast. Once a sparkling jewel of the continent, Somalia had descended into lawlessness, with constant fighting by factions of Islamist militants and a fledgling government powerless to stem the violence.
The City that Ended Hunger A city in Brazil recruited local farmers to help do something U.S. cities have yet to do: end hunger. posted Feb 13, 2009 “To search for solutions to hunger means to act within the principle that the status of a citizen surpasses that of a mere consumer.”CITY OF BELO HORIZONTE, BRAZIL In writing Diet for a Small Planet, I learned one simple truth: Hunger is not caused by a scarcity of food but a scarcity of democracy. But that realization was only the beginning, for then I had to ask: What does a democracy look like that enables citizens to have a real voice in securing life’s essentials?

City ends reserved soccer at Mission Playground after Dropbox flap The San Francisco Recreation and Park Department has decided to end reserved adult play at Mission Playground — the site of a video-recorded confrontation between tech workers and locals that went viral — after meeting with a group of neighborhood kids on Wednesday, according to department director Phil Ginsburg. Ginsburg said park officials met with a combination of kids and youth soccer advocates and came to the conclusion that, in this instance, the need for unstructured play on weekday evenings outweighed the desire to accommodate adults. “The most compelling suggestions came from the kids who said, ‘This is a safe place we can come and play and we feel like we need more time,’” said Ginsburg.
