Another snowstorm, another Voice Project blessing

A happy coincidence with the latest dose of winter weather — arriving in tandem with the storm today was another strong installment from the Voice Project I couldn’t resist sharing this cover of Radiohead’s “Everything in its Right Place,” performed by cellist Joshua Roman and DJ Spooky, a composer, multimedia artist and writer also known as […]

Speak up to prevent mass atrocities

That mass atrocities and genocide should be prevented generates little debate. Where we become stuck as an international community is exactly what to do and when.
