Hour 1 - 3
After a couple of negative interactions with what he calls “unscrupulous cops”, Rick took the initiative to outfit his ride with some cutting-edge technology.
And he founded Veterans Against Police Abuse to encourage others to do the same – use technology to create a transparent record of interactions. That, he says, is the surest way to bring-about a safer society.
To learn more about the technology in Rick’s ride, check out this page on his site, which includes links to many of the devices housed in his car.
Rick also notes his excitement about an app he’s involved with developing called iCitizen, which
will 1) secure vital evidence and 2) activate a community network to help ensure law enforcement interaction with an individual is lawful, and to help provide accountability if it is not, and 3) collect and present analytical data on the nature of law enforcement interaction.
Politics From the Inside Out
The purpose of SISTER GIANT is to help create a new conversation in American politics, one in which principles of higher consciousness form a new foundation for political involvement. In the words of Martin Luther King Jr., “Our goal is to create a beloved community and this will require a qualitative change in our souls as well as a quantitative change in our lives.”
Marianne Williamson Teams with The Women's Campaign School at Yale University to Create SISTER GIANT, 2 DAY Symposium to Empower Women to Run for Political Office, November 10-11, Saban Theatre in Los Angeles.
WHO: New York Times bestselling author Marianne Williamson partners
with The Women's Campaign School at Yale University to produce a
non-partisan symposium dedicated to empowering women to run for
political office, with an emphasis on the intersection of politics and spirituality.
At a time when the US Congress is comprised of only 16.8 percent women
and State legislatures are comprised of 23.6 percent women, Sister
Giant sends out a clarion call to women to equal the political playing
field and consider candidacy for political office. It is a
non-partisan program that unabashedly combines spiritual and progressive ideals.
WHEN: November 10-11, 2012
WHERE: Saban Theater
8440 Wilshire Boulevard, Beverly Hills, CA 90211
WHAT: Sister Giant hot topics include but are not limited to:
At a rate of 23.1% child poverty in the United States ranks second
highest among 35 developed nations. (second only to Romania)
Prisons as a Growth Industry
The US currently incarcerates more of our people than any nation in
the world, or any nation in history.
Without a Constitutional Amendment to override the effects of the
Supreme Court decision "Citizens United" money will continue to wield
increasingly undue influence on American politics.

Patricia Russo, President of the Women’s Campaign School at Yale lends her expertise to the segment, “Making the Decision to Lead a Political Life: From The Inside...Out.”

The perspective she crafts is jolting. She draws in impressive research organized in four dimensions: failing schools, a failing economy, the negative aspects of a culture promoted by the music (TV and movie) industry, and an economy of incarceration.
