"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
Only working together, can we breathe free. We are of one planet and one people.
We'll see how the work of the eventual contract winner holds up to the work Trademark has already done.
The Trademark boxes have exceeded their life expectancy twice over. The "perfect marks" they received were well deserved.
FRANKR: It's a "success" because the project adds to the livability and lovability of our city. If you don't understand how, check out Peter Kageyama's book "For the Love of Cities." It's actually a very small investment for a big return (city-wide art) in the realm of public art.
Also, Trademark does next level work, and as the article states, the wraps they've done are lasting twice as long as expected. You get what you pay for…
I wonder how many of these folks who are against HB1 have any idea of what the Trans-Pacific Partnership is? They want to fight something benign, yet remain oblivious of cultural and environmental killing legislation in the works.
Saying that agreeing to international treaties is a bad thing is like saying that we're not all on the Spaceship Earth together.
It is the nature and quality of the treaty that is important.
Does it hold people responsible who should be held responsible? Does it degrade or improve human relationships? Does it create or negate community?
The United States is one of a handful of countries to refuse compliance on the international treaty to ban cluster bomb munitions. Is this what "patriot independence" and "freedom" should look like?
I love Idaho and the community we have here in Boise, but I am continually embarrassed by those who have been elected to "lead" us.
I am so glad that we have people like Coletta and others, who have the vision to make Boise people-centric. Cities should exist first for their citizens, and in doing so, all other good things will follow.
I was inspired by the words of Peter Kageyama, who came to Boise earlier this year at the invitation of the Downtown Boise Association. His vision is first, to love where you live. His challenge to city leaders and planners is to leverage that love by supporting and creating opportunities for others who love where they live to participate in creating community, that is, to create the culture that we all consume.
This is very different than "consumer culture," as alluded to above with "suburbanization" of big box stores, etc. They are shared experiences that enrich our everyday lives through art, music, learning, activities, and events. Moreover, they have a human narrative, and help to connect people and knit the fabric of our community.
Human beings are communal creatures, and have not evolved to survive in a hyper-individualistic, and hyper-capitalist society. Wise leaders and planners will know that to thrive economically, a city must be founded on heart-first, people-first principles.
Bill Clinton smoked but "didn't inhale."
George W. Bush would neither confirm nor deny smoking marijuana.
Barak Obama admitted openly to smoking when he was younger.
So every US president since 1993, has either confirmed, or not denied, smoking marijuana. So why are American citizens still going to jail and prison for the same thing!?!
Number of independent, peer-reviewed scientific studies that support marijuana's classification as a Schedule I, felony possession drug: ZERO.
In every single country that has decriminalized marijuana (and other drugs), the age of first-time use has gone up, while in America, it continues to go down.
I do not think this poll is accurate by any means, but opposing the legalization of marijuana and other drugs is the same thing as supporting the prison-industrial complex, easy access to drugs for middle school children and younger, as well as the class and race wars disguised in the so called "war on Drugs."
