Disclaimer:  I am a columnist, not a critic.  That is my cop-out. With the generous support of our Editor, I write about what I like.  If I don’t like it, I don’t write about it.  So no matter what is said in this column, I loved Avatar Repertory Theater’s (ART) adaptation of Through the Looking Glass, based on the Lewis Carroll classic.  I think you should run, not walk, and get your ticket now while there are still tickets to be had for this marvelous production which plays through December 11th for a limited number of performances.

Mankind Tracer virtually LIVE atThe SL Enquirer- November 14th @ 5pm slt

Join SLE for an exclusive encore event as  Mankind Tracer performs virtually LIVE  for fans at The SL Enquirer Media Center!

Recently finishing up the Peace, Love and Belief V Event, Mankind Tracer can be found, guitar in hand, and ready to energize a crowd with his originals blended perfectly with his voice.

Every artist has their own special sound. Sometimes we can compare them to others more familiar or some are just too unique for comparison. Mankind has such a voice. The power of music is a well known fact and breaks all language barriers. It can get a person to move to the beat and not even realize it.  For me music not only makes me want to dance, I enjoy the meaning of his songs. One thing about this rockstar is that he shares his stories with all of us. If you have not experienced a Mankind Tracer concert, I recommend it.

PAICE News: CyberSpace: The New Frontier... Baeric Constantine Reporting...

As with any frontier, there are boom towns, and brawls, and even frontier wars, in an effort to create or maintain a border. One would think that this is the fabric of some western novel, or some western film, but, alas, it is not. It is the story of the Internet, the CyberWest, or, CyberSpace: The New Frontier...
Speaking at DARPA's “Colloquium on Future Directions in Cyber Security,” on November 7, 2011, Regina Dugan stated that DARPA are “...shifting [their] investments to activities that promise more convergence with the threat and that recognize the needs of the Department of Defense...[as]...Malicious cyber attacks are not merely an existential threat to our bits and bytes; they are a real threat to our physical systems, including our military systems. To this end, in the coming years we will focus an increasing portion of our cyber research on the investigation of offensive capabilities to address military-specific needs.”

SLE's Astrologist, Linda Lauren is making waves in the real world.

Linda Lauren sure has been busy these days and we are excited to announce that she just made front page of the NY Times! Check out the article here!

PAICE NEWS- CyberCrime: A Pandoric Pandemic... Baeric Constantine Reporting...

Cyber-Security has been of the essence, and too few people understand the necessity for protecting our data, and our machines from the ever escalating cyber-threat.

CyberSecurity... just how secure are we, as a nation and as individuals? This is a question that is discussion with the top ranks of those in security.  The Internet is a hotbed for transnational crime, and according to Iain Lobban of GCHQ, the Government’s listening centre, "a significant change has taken place in the modern world where our adversaries employ similar technologies as used by the citizens going about their daily business, so reassuring people that they are being appropriately defended against threats without encroachments on their privacy is very important."

Lobban went on to give some context, "that there are deliberate (malicious) attacks and accidental, cyber techniques have been used to bring pressure on other states, there is theft of intellectual property (such as the theft of Japanese Military Secrets), Cyberspace lowers the bar for entry to the espionage game, both for states and for criminal actors, and that the risks are growing with the Internet, about 60% a year."

Spotlight Feature: Deliziosa Vendetta, founder of Gems and Kisses Fine Jewelry ~ Shon Charisma Reporting

I am a lover of creativity and imagination, the ways in which people use these tools to fashion things no one else could. And speaking of fashion, well, we know that I am also a lover of fashions, from dresses to jewelry. When I was asked to talk with the innovative and unique designer Deliziosa Vendetta about Gems & Kisses Fine Jewelry, my heart went all aflutter. Before you even marvel at her jewelry designs, you are greeted with the simple, yet strong, elegant jewelry box design of the store. Needless to say, I emptied my bank account while perusing Gems & Kisses, and was excited to talk to Vendetta about her inspiration, creativity, and Season 1 of Gems & Kisses Royal Miss 2012, which kicks off this month.
