'Stalking' Jon Stewart and United World Colleges

Amy Aussieker, Owner of FABO art gallery and coffee bar

Part One: Stalking Jon Stewart
The DNC is almost upon us and vendors are gearing up all over the region to serve the thousands of convention attendees expected to arrive. But what about small businesses that dot the areas near uptown? Many say they don’t know how to gain the attention of visitors so one business owner came up with a novel idea. Her personal mission? "To get Jon Stewart to FABO Café for a cup of coffee while he is in Charlotte filming his show during the DNC."  We’ll hear her story.

Democratic Platform and the DNC

A shot from the 2008 Democratic National Convention

Tent Issues for the DNC As the Democratic National Convention edges closer to descending upon Charlotte we launch a series of examinations of the tent pole issues the Democratic delegates will support, debate and eventually adopt as part of their platform. Some of the issue are obvious like the economy, healthcare and foreign policy but party leaders also say that gay marriage may end up as a plank and gun control is back in the news as well.

It’s no secret that something changes when kids enter Middle School. Developmentally, emotionally and socially, middle school is where some kids really struggle, and the changes in their bodies and socially can affect their grades, their relationships with friends and with their parents. We’ll be joined by a panel of experts who have been helping middle schoolers -  and their parents - navigate the waters of middle school, and hear from you, too, when Charlotte Talks.

Twelve In Twelve: The Next Chapter

A year ago, three intrepid Charlotteans set out on a round-the-world mission.  A father and his two sons - then 8-year-old Buck and his teenage brother, Jackson, visited twelve countries in twelve months.  But this wasn’t a vacation.  They chose the places they went so they could help the people in those countries in some way and all of this was Jackson’s idea.  From nearly drowning in Thailand, to helping run a nursery school in Tanzania, they share their adventure of good will.
