Clarity comes from seeking insights, questioning beneath the surface to greater understanding and realizing possibilities for the good of all. Gravity stabilizes planetary life and action including tidal changes, soil respiration and geometry.
TEDxLAMiracleMile will present an event that brings together cross-disciplinary speakers to speak about these topics, their relevancy to the work they do, and how this work can lead to practical benefits for local communities.

Rose provides a framework for "free choice" which includes both consumer access and consumer information about the product, using the controversial choice of raw milk as an example.

What lies between us and highly productive landscapes is a complex aesthetic shift.
