Paul & Tara

 

Open Table NashvilleNashville, TN – I’ve been thinking a lot about what it takes to bring people into the movement to end homelessness. How do we on the inside bring people with limited or no understanding of complex issues into a conversation that debunks the myths surrounding poverty and mental illness?

It wasn’t the stats or the “success stories” that got me into this work. It was seeing the common humanity and the brokenness of the system. It was meeting people on the street in desperate situations and being broken over their trauma and blown away by their humor.

APSU graduate Shawn Harding discovers unexpected Heritage, turns into budding Holocaust Scholar

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – In 2017, the Austin Peay State University (APSU) student Shawn Harding discovered his family had fled Eastern Europe following a violent persecution of that region’s Jewish residents.

In 1905, a nice Catholic family from the Ukraine/Poland border immigrated to the U.S. with very few belongings and one big secret – they weren’t Catholic. More than 110 years later, the family’s great-grandchildren finally learned the truth.

NASA studies Asia Mountains Water Cycle

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – NASA says that for more than a billion people, Asia’s high mountain ranges, Himalaya, Karakoram, and Hindu Kush, are the names of their most reliable water source.

Snow and glaciers in these mountains contain the largest volume of freshwater outside of Earth’s polar ice sheets, leading hydrologists to nickname this region the Third Pole. One-seventh of the world’s population depends on rivers flowing from these mountains for water to drink and to irrigate crops.
