A Journey Less Travelled: Discover the New Soul of Sol

This was abundantly clear to those who attended the Sol meeting in Boston on Nov 19.

Cosmic Connections of Change

While Barack Obama rose to the occasion and is on his way to the White House under the banner of change, the deeper meanings of change remain a mystery and huge risks to the Obama administration, America and the world at large.
