World Footprints was there and today we will bring you some of the highlights from the speakers and panelists who spoke.

Today World Footprints will talk travel; specifically international travel and study abroad programs with Yahoo! Travel's Paula Froelich. Our conversation follows an invitation to the White House to participate in a travel summit focused on encouraging more travel, voluntourism and study-abroad opportunities for Americans. Of course, as Yahoo! Travels editori-in-chief, Paula will share some of her recent travels, top destination picks and travel philosophy.
Then, take a stroll through history as we explore San Antonio, Texas. The city of San Antonio is one of the oldest European settlements in Texas and, for decades, its largest city. Thousands of years before the Spanish settlements began the city was populated by various cultures of indigenous people. Today, San Antonio is investing energy in preserving its cultural heritage and ecosystem for future generations to come. We will discover the development initiatives taking place in San Antonio and get an update on the city's possible inclusion on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
Finally, everyone knows Orlando, Florida as the theme park capital of the world. However, we will discover another side of Orlando as we explore the Maitland Arts Center--the city's first National Historic Landmark.

Acclaimed travel writer Pico Iyer joins Sister Jenna on the America Meditating Radio Show! Why might a lifelong traveler like Pico Iyer who has journeyed from Easter Island to Ethiopia, Cuba to Kathmandu, think that sitting quietly in a room might be the ultimate adventure? Because in our madly accelerating world, our lives are crowded, chaotic and noisy. There’s never been a greater need to slow down, tune out and give ourselves permission to be still.
Pico Iyer was born in England, to parents from India, and was educated at Eton, Oxford and Harvard. He began his career documenting a neglected aspect of travel -- the sometimes surreal disconnect between local tradition and imported global pop culture. He has written 12 books, exploring also the cultural consequences of isolation, whether writing about the exiled spiritual leaders of Tibet or the embargoed society of Cuba.
Pico’s latest focus is on another overlooked aspect of travel: how can it help us regain our sense of stillness and focus in a world where our devices and digital networks increasing distract us? He is also a contributor to many magazines, writer of screenplays and liner-notes and introductions to 40 other books. His newest book is, "The Art of Stillness." Visit http://picoiyerjourneys.com and watch Pico’s Ted Talk on the Art of Stillness.

Take a sip of the Kool-Aid! What's you'r flavor?
There is a college campus in Los Angeles with a reputation of having once been a living hell on earth. The campus of the California Sate University, Channel Islands was once an institution named The Camarillo State Mental Hospital. It has been memorialized in movies like 1948's Olivia deHaviland picture "The Snake Pit" and in songs by Frank Zappa, the bands Fear and Ambrosia. It is even rumored to have been the basis for the Eagles megalithic chart topping hit; Hotel California. It once housed up to 7000 mentally ill patients and was a place where they did medical experiments on living people, without their permission and where for some doomed souls experienced abuse, neglect, rape, and torture were near daily occurrences.
The location is closed now to paranormal investigations, but there has been a concentrated effort by a dedicated few to document the paranormal activity. Next week on an extraordinary Paranormal Kool Aid we are going to talk to historian/photographer Mary Holt. Then we will speak to many investigators including Paranormal Pioneer Syd Schultz who has dedicated himself to telling this fascinating, if horrifying story.

Since the end of the Great Recession, the economy has added 9.1 million jobs, and the unemployment rate has fallen from 10 percent to 5.8 percent.
