It's been a whirlwind news week on the international front and domestic US.  We'll first pay tribute to the community efforts of Madison Park Development Corporation, one of the nation's first community based, non-profit organizations that developed affordable housing for low and moderate income residents.  KELLEY CHUNN, their public relations spokes person will tell us more about their upcoming 45th Anniversary festivities set for October 19th and November 4th.  Kelley is also our closing KEYNOTE LUNCHEON SPEAKER at the October 27th Multicultural Conference at the University of Massachusetts-Boston Campus (www.mssconnect.com).


From celebration we'll turn to reflecting on the life and death of two giants of humanity, the environment and technology: Nobel Peace Prize Winner Dr. Wangari Maathai of the Green Belt Movement and Apple Computer visionary Steve Jobs. Both Maathai and Jobs impacted the world in deeply emotional ways. As a Mac user since 1984 I respect and applaud Steve Jobs for his brilliance and dedication to innovation for ALL people.  As an American deeply connected to Kenya, I salute Dr. Wangari Maathai for cobbling together her band of women who planted trees all over the countryside to improve the environment for ALL.
