    Pollution is endangering the future of astronomy
    OXON HILL, Md. - Even as technological advances allow astronomers to peer more deeply into the cosmos than ever before, new technologies also have the potential to create blinding pollution. Three sources of pollution - space debris, radio interference and light pollution - already are particularly worrisome. And the situation is getting worse.

"The story is related by the Narrator, a grownup version of the misguided Youth, with a distinct sense of irony... and a kinetic, eclectic score that ranges from gospel to punk rock." - The Philadelphia Inquirer

    'Passing Strange' at the Wilma: Updated, rocking tale of Youth's quest for identity
    Stew and Heidi Rodewald's "Passing Strange" at the Wilma Theater tells an often-told tale: The self-glorifying, distinctly unheroic artist-hero questing for his identity through changes of scene, sexual encounters that stop short of love, and the supposedly redemptive act of creation.

"Just as generations before us have done, it’s important that we also do our part." Great opinion piece from Evelina Bodon and Felicia Harris about getting involved within our communities.

    Most neighborhood volunteers are seniors. The time is now for millennials to get involved | Opinion
    These public spaces are gems and can be part of what makes living in a neighborhood so attractive; and they have only survived for so long because of the commitment of those few neighbors, many seniors, who are dedicated volunteers, advocates and members of friends of groups or recreation advisory councils.
