Insight: Redevelopment and Affordable Housing / Modern Dogs / Teaching Shakespeare / Writer's Brush


Redevelopment and Affordable Housing Now that the California Supreme Court has ruled on the issue, redevelopment agencies will start being "unwound" come February. We'll talk with some of the people heading redevelopment projects in Sacramento about the future of affordable housing and funding for ongoing redevelopment construction.
 
Modern Dogs A new study led by the University of California Davis' wildlife genetics researchers provides a surprising glimpse into the global heritage of both wild and domestic dogs.  Results from the study, which examined the DNA of 642 dogs, suggest that European and American canine breeds were much more influenced by dogs from Southeast Asia than by ancient Western dogs or by dogs from the Middle East, as was previously thought. We'll speak with Ben Sacks, the lead researcher of the study. 
 
Teaching Shakespeare "All the world 's a stage, and all the men and women merely players."  For the first time ever, the UC Davis School of Education and the Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center are presenting a lively, 3-day conference designed to help educators make Shakespeare come alive to their students.
 
Writer's Brush Some of our greatest writers, like Sylvia Plath and Kurt Vonnegut, were also artists.  This is the theme of the upcoming Third Annual Sacramento Writer's Brush.   It will take place on January 14 from 5:00 to 9:00 pm  at the Sacramento Poetry Center. Writer's Brush will feature local writers, artists, as well as singers and songwriters in an art show and readings of their literary work.
