The National Science Board’s quarterly meeting takes place this week—November 28-29—in Alexandria, Virginia. It is a public one and is being webcast.

My reports have appeared in the Financial Times, The Economist, Forbes, Newsday, Archaeology, Astrobiology, Connoisseur, Omni, Huffington Post, Progressive Review ("How Bush Got Bounced From Carlyle Board"), CounterPunch, Scoop Media and other publications, as well as on PBS, CBC and MBC.
More than a dozen of my stories related to the Rome antiquities conspiracy trial were featured in Harvard Law School's Art Law Syllabus 2008.
I've covered the wars: Colombian Drug War, Gulf War, Sudan, and Kashmir (from both the Indian and Pakistani sides of the conflict).
And I’ve been a guest on Charlie Rose, McLaughlin and various Fox Television News programs talking about those crises and others.
For some years along the way, I was a runway fashion model for legends Geoffrey Beene, Bill Blass, Giorgio Sant' Angelo and so many more.
