Norway's Muslim immigrants attend classes on western attitudes to womenhttp://bit.ly/NorwayLessons

Every immigrant in Norway must attend classes on female rights and respect for women. The lessons were made compulsory after a string of sex attacks by immigrants in the western city of Stavanger. With exclusive access to a class in action in the town of Moi, 65 miles south-east of Stavanger, Jenny Kleeman meets the students and asks whether western values can really be taught in a classroom.

With digital photography, I can straddle color and black-and-white with ease.  Both have their merits.  Once color photography became easy and affordable, with commercial labs processing the film and prints, black-and-white became a forgotten orphan for casual amateur snapshots.  Black-and-white became the reserve of the art of photography, of serious photographers.

I don't think of myself as a serious photographer, just an amateur who likes to experiment and explore possibilities.  Now that I'm returning to black-and-white, I'm rediscovering its evocative power, especially with digital photography, which lets me see the photo in color, and then recreate it in black-and-white.  

Some photographs lend themselves more to color, others more to black-and-white.  Years ago I took a course in black-and-white photographing, and film and print developing.  I'm rediscovering the impact that grayscale wields.  It's about shapes, shadows, lines, and perspective.  Color, when it's about color, packs a wallop, too, but of a different kind.  Black-and-white resonates with mood and depending on the subject, it can reach the viewer with greater clarity.  

I see this even more forcefully when I view a photograph I've taken in color, convert it to black-and-white, and I view both side by side.  I'm seeing the same scene or the same people, but sensing greatly different essences.

I am immovably opposed to everything Donald Trump stands for. I'm going on record with that.

In the June/July issue, Bruce Birchard makes the case to explore new images of God: "We are in need of creative new images or models of God (the Spirit) that will inspire and guide us to adapt a very different way of living on the earth."
We need to adapt models of God that reconnect us to the burning oneness binding everything.

Courage doesn't always roar.  But quite often, cowardice does.
