June 21,1919 – April 9, 2013
Paolo Soleri, architect, builder, artist, writer, theorist, husband, father, born on summer solstice, has died at age 93.
Paolo Soleri spent a lifetime investigating how architecture, specifically the architecture of the city, could support the countless possibilities of human aspiration. The urban project he founded, Arcosanti, 65 miles north of Phoenix, was described by NEWSWEEK magazine as “…the most important urban experiment undertaken in our lifetimes.”
His lifetime of work is represented in models, drawings, books, lectures and museum exhibits throughout the world. Soleri’s exhibition in 1970 at the Corcoran Museum in Washington DC – and the concurrent publication of his landmark book, City in the Image of Man– changed forever the global conversation about urban planning on our living planet. His term, “Arcology” joining the words architecture and ecology to represent one whole system of understanding human life on the earth is meant to serve as the basis for that conversation.

Ovarian cancer has long been considered a “silent” cancer because it can progress without noticeable symptoms. By the time it was first diagnosed, ovarian cancer was so advanced that treatment was challenging and survival rates were less than optimal. However, recent medical advancements are helping to write a new story about ovarian cancer.
Ovarian cancer strikes 22,000 U.S. women annually, and the most common symptoms include bloating, pain in the stomach or pelvic areas, difficulty eating, feeling full quickly, trouble urinating, or feeling urgency to use the bathroom. Changes in menstrual cycles, unexplained weight gain, back pain or fatigue can also be signs. Because some of these symptoms are vague or similar to those associated with other problems, such as digestive issues, ovarian cancer may not be immediately suspected.
There is a lot of talk about new large solar projects coming to Arizona; most of which are planned for rural areas. Much of the discussion is about the benefits to the State from this new development, but what does it actually mean to the regions and communities that are housing these projects? Should these communities want the new power station and all the activity that comes with it during construction and beyond?
Creating a successful energy plan for Arizona requires patience, cooperation and strategic focus. The recently released Arizona Energy Roadmap is a critical first phase in a series of actions to help Arizona bolster its energy sector, resulting in future economic growth. For Arizonans, increased economic growth means new higher paying jobs, continued reliable low energy costs, and heightened energy self-sufficiency, among other benefits.
What are you doing March 20th? If you said anything other than “GIVE” listen up. The Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits partnered with the Arizona Grantmakers Forum to create the biggest day of individual giving the state has seen – the first ever Arizona Gives Day.
When the clock strikes midnight on March 20, 2013, Arizonans have 24 hours to go to www.AZGives.org and pledge to support the organization of their choice. Arizona Gives Day is designed to not only increase individual giving but also raise awareness for the nearly 500 organizations participating. The day will focus on giving back to the organizations whose invaluable efforts have helped empower communities and provide services, products and more to those in need.
