Weather Pending is a San Francisco trio creating unique, soulful, music with a truthful, uplifting message. Theband creates smoky late night grooves highlighted by Janie Olivershoney and gunpowder vocals, the dark, swooping tones of producer RobCrosss electric bass and the shimmering overtones of Brian Bloi's lushelectric and acoustic guitar. On their debut recording, And How!,they're joined by guest drummers Max MacVeety and Derek G. Taylor whogive the music a swing that much electronic music lacks. The resultingmusic is hard to categorize; kind of like what The Beach Boys wouldhave sounded like with a female lead singer and hip hop/reggae beats orif Portishead was from California and spent a lot of time on the beach.

Professor Stuart Pimm holds one of Duke University's most prestigious chairs (The Doris Duke Chair of Conservation Ecology). He is an outstanding ecologist and the world's leading conservation scientist.
Pimm's publications are extraordinarily influential. He is one of the most quoted ecologists. In the last decade, has Pimm published more than 100 papers, of which a quarter were in Nature, Science, and PNAS. Two of his four books have appeared since 1991. The Balance of Nature? Ecological issues in the conservation of species and communities. University of Chicago Press, Chicago, IL. 434 pp. And 2001. The World According to Pimm: a Scientist Audits the Earth. McGraw Hill, New York. (1982) Food Webs, has been reissued (2003) by University of Chicago Press. Pimm's papers are wideranging.
Food Webs was republished simply because, despite its age, it remains the best single introduction to the subject of largescale community structure, its causes, and its consequences. It has an extensive new preface that brings the last two decades of the topic. Pimm is the cofounder of this field (along with Robert May, John Lawton, and Joel Cohen) and their theoretical and empirical contributions have shaped two decades of research. Pimm has three review articles in Nature (one with Lawton and Cohen) on the structure of food webs and the closely related topic of the stability and complexity of ecosystems.
Until recently, Balance of Nature? was Pimm's most important publication and has an (annual) impact factor averaged over the dozen years since its publication over twice that of a article in a major journal such as Nature. It was critically acclaimed by reviewers following its publication. It defines the field of how populations vary of time, how communities are assembled, and how they resist or succumb to change. Pimm reviews what we know about the longterm dynamics and species and communities. Much of that work is his own pioneering studies on the nature of population change (the more time means more variation hypothesis) and on the complexities of communities and how they change. These issues affect how rapidly populations become extinct (and so what we can do to prevent extinctions), how best to understand the effects of species removals and invasions, and how best to restore ecological communities.
Finally, Pimm understands that we must communicate conservation science to those who make decisions. Pimm is not an advocate, but a scientist who believes that scientists must inform and shape policies that have science at their core. This cuts both ways, of course, and he has been energetic in bringing high standards to the academic study of biological diversity. In particular, his 11 years on the board of reviewing editors at Science were marked by a huge increase in the number of papers about environmental issues and about conservation of biological diversity in particular. He has active research programs in many of th
Author Daniel Pinchbeck has deep personal roots in the New York counter culture of the 1950s and 1960s.

Chellie Pingree never anticipated a life in politics. Living on the offshore island of North Haven, Maine, she raised her kids and ran a small business. She served on the school board and as the local tax assessor, a job no one else in town wanted. But in 1991, when she was approached about running for State Senate, she jumped at the chance.
She scored a remarkable upset, defeating a popular Republican, and went on to serve four terms in the Maine Senate. But throughout her political career, from Augusta to Washington and beyond, the lessons she learned on North Haven have always been her guide: Be accountable to your neighbors, and always use your common sense.
Chellie Johnson was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1955, the youngest of four children. Her father, Harry, worked in advertising and her mother, Dorothy, was a nurse. Chellie moved to Maine as a teenager, attended the University of Southern Maine, and graduated from the College of the Atlantic, in Bar Harbor. After college, she moved to North Haven, an island town of 350 people twelve miles off the coast of Rockland, to raise her family and make a living.
Chellie has worked hard throughout her life - as a mother, as a farmer, as a small business owner, and in politics. She knows how difficult it can be to meet payroll and run a business in a small, rural community. Right after college, Chellie and her husband, Charlie, spent several years running a small farm and selling produce locally. In 1981, she started North Island Yarn, a cottage industry of local knitters, with a retail store on the island. The business expanded quickly, becoming North Island Designs, and employed as many as ten local workers in peak seasons. The business sold knitting kits and pattern books nationwide through 500 retail stores and 100,000 mail order catalogues. She sold the business in 1993.Today, in addition to her political life, Chellie co-owns and helps manage Nebo Lodge, a bed & breakfast and restaurant on North Haven, which she started with several partners in 2006.
Chellie was elected to the Maine State Senate in 1992, representing Knox County. In 1996, Chellie was chosen by her peers to be the Maine Senate Majority Leader. She helped lead the Senate for four more years, until leaving office due to term limits. As a Senator, she fought for economic and social justice, taking on powerful adversaries - most notably the pharmaceutical lobby. In her last session, Pingree sponsored one of the nation's first prescription drug pricing bills, MaineRX. After a legal fight that led all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, the bill became law, and has since been a model for states around the country working to lower prescription drug prices.
Chellie also sponsored the successful "Parents as Scholars" program, a national model for welfare reform, which continues to help working Maine parents gain access to education to help them achieve a better life for their families. She led successful efforts to protect Maine's environment, for corporate accountability, to protect workers, to promote a women's right to choose, and in support of Maine's small businesses. As a state Senator, Chellie was also a founding member of the Maine Economic Growth Council.Pingree's leadership in Maine politics led to numerous international appointments. She traveled to Hungary as an Eisenhower Exchange Fellow, served as a member of the White House delegation to observe elections in Bosnia, and was a member of a U.S. delegation to Northern Ireland, working with women political leaders there.
After being term-limited from the Maine Senate in 2000, Pingree challenged incumbent U.S. Senator Susan Collins in 2002. As one of the few outspoken opponents of the Iraq War running for U.S. Senate, Chellie mounted a strong, but ultimately unsuccessful campaign.
From 2003 to 2007, Chellie served as the National President and CEO of Common Cause, a non-partisan citizen activist group with nearly 300,000 members and 35 state chapters. Common Cause's mission is to help citizens make their voices heard in the political process and to hold their elected leaders accountable to the public interest. Under Chellie's leadership, Common Cause increased its membership and diversified its agenda to include limiting media concentration and consolidation, promoting Net Neutrality, and election reform, while continuing to pursue its traditional goals of campaign finance reform and oversight of government ethics and accountability.
In 2008 Chellie was elected to Congress from Maine’s 1st Congressional District—the first woman elected to Congress from that District. It also marks the first time in American history that women make up the majority of a state’s Congressional Delegation.
Chellie has three grown children. Her eldest, Hannah, is former Speaker of the Maine House of Representatives, is married to filmmaker Jason Mann, and is mother to Chellie's granddaughter, Elsie. Her daughter Cecily, another filmmaker, is currently working with Penobscot Bay East Resource Center on a film about Maine's fishing industry. And her son, Asa, is a small business owner and proud father of Chellie's first grandson, Smith.

For over 30 years, PlanToys® has been recycling the wood from expired rubber wood trees to create beautiful wooden toys that inspire children’s imaginations and promote a commitment to sustainable play for generations to come.
It all started when seven university students graduated with the vow to develop a company that would contribute positively to society and humanity. One of these graduates was an architect and future founder of Plan Creations Co., Ltd., Vitool Virapornsavan. Mr. Virapornsavan fulfilled this vow by creating a company that inspires children and families around the world to this day.
Since Plan Creations’ inception in 1981, the PlanToys® brand has been creating innovative toys for the development of every child, starting from the day they are born and up to age 4+. These toys have been consistently produced with the highest quality and safety standards.

With innovative design, high quality and safety standards, the company is the world’s leading manufacturer of safe, eco-friendly and educational wooden toys for children.
Today with approximately 1,000 employees, PlanToys® has two subsidiaries: PlanToys®, Inc. in USA and PlanToys® Japan Co., Ltd. PlanToys® is the first company in the world to manufacture toys from reclaimed rubber wood. In 2012, PlanToys® debuted a new collection of sustainable toys, PlanWood®. PlanWood® is made from the sawdust and wood chips left over from regular PlanToys® production, creating a process that expands the possibilities of sustainability even further.
PlanToys® now owns 6,250 hectares of rubber wood plantations and contracts an additional 6,250 hectares. Each year, PlanToys® replants over 100,000 rubber trees and their operations have created over 1,000 jobs in and around the southern Thai village of Trang. The factory’s manufacturing processes create energy and power for the residents, improving daily quality of life. The PlanToys® factory has experienced enormous growth; now covering 45,000 square meters, doubling the product capacity with newly installed machinery and creating a maximum output of approximately 6 million toys/sets per year.
