Review of "The Royale" at Seattle's ACT Theatre by Dr. Louise WilkinsonLast Updated on 2016-09-27 18:23:43Theater Review by Dr. Louise Wilkinson, Wilkinson Intercultural Consulting:
“I saw “The Royale” last night at ACT Theatre. I highly recommend it! Boxing becomes rhythm and music that help reveal deep themes of racism and its impact on the dilemmas and emotions involved in individual black historical achievements. Powerful acting and staging – an amazing experience, so relevant today. And stay for the interaction with the cast afterward – it’s more than conversation. It runs for two more weeks.”
Securities and Exchange Commission Next To Investigate ExxonLast Updated on 2016-09-26 11:31:13The Securities and Exchange Commission now joins a number of States who are investigating EXXon for knowingly suppressing information and creating a campaign to prevent action on the existential threat caused by carbon pollution.
This investigation could fundamentally reshape how Exxon and the entire fossil fuel industry does business. If the SEC finds that Exxon has lied to its shareholders, the company could face major penalties. More importantly, a ruling that forces Exxon to account for its climate risk could help shut down new fossil fuel development and industry expansion.
With tumbling oil prices their stock price has tumbled by 59%. Chevron's has tumbled even more. More reason to divest now.
