The unprecedented level of economic inequality in America is undeniable. In an extended essay, Bill shares examples of the striking extremes of wealth and poverty across the country, including a video report on California's Silicon Valley. There, Facebook, Google, and Apple are minting millionaires, while the area's homeless -- who've grown 20 percent in the last two years -- are living in tent cities at their virtual doorsteps.

CONTINUUM is about the awakening of our planet.
It is a feature documentary telling the story of our interconnection with each other, the planet, and the universe.
We hope that this documentary will change the way we think as a species – to stop seeing ourselves as separate from each other, from the planet and the cosmos – and inspire us to work together to transform our planetary crises.
On the 40th anniversary of the famous 'Blue Marble' photograph taken of Earth from space, Planetary Collective presents a short film documenting astronauts' life-changing stories of seeing the Earth from the outside -- a perspective-altering experience often described as the Overview Effect.
The Overview Effect, first described by author Frank White in 1987, is an experience that transforms astronauts' perspective of the planet and mankind's place upon it. Common features of the experience are a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment.

Excerpt from a panel presentation of the Business In The Community Ireland Summit on Corporate Responsibility: Transforming to a Sustainable Business was held on Thursday 18th November 2010.
The panel includes James Quincey, The Coca Cola Company; Sir Stuart Rose, Chairman, Marks & Spencer; Prof Roger Steare, Cass Business School; Richard Jackson, Olympic Delivery Authority; and Gerard O'Neill, Amarach.
In this excerpt we hear from Gerard O'Neill of Amarach Research on how the pricing trap employed by marketers to sell product is undermining sustainability initiatives and products while price is but 30% of the purchase decision is about price, 70% is about emotion, feelings. The importance of the circle of trust and the social environment in the decision making process by consumers points the way to get of the pricing trap.

In an engaging and personal talk -- with cameo appearances from his grandmother and Rosa Parks -- human rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson shares some hard truths about America's justice system, starting with a massive imbalance along racial lines: a third of the country's black male population has been incarcerated at some point in their lives. These issues, which are wrapped up in America's unexamined history, are rarely talked about with this level of candor, insight and persuasiveness. There is an excellent presentation on Prezi that should also be viewed and shared here.
Bryan is founder of the Equal Justice Initiative.
