Co-Creating a More Walkable, Bikeable and Transit-Friendly Greensboro
A native of Greensboro, Gray Johnston decided to move back after graduating from UNC Chapel Hill in 2016. His current role for the City of Greensboro is a Transit Planning Apprentice with the Greensboro Transit Authority ('GTA'). Gray's mission is to co-create a more walkable, bikeable and transit-friendly Greensboro.
The Mobility Greensboro 2040 Plan is designed to establish long-term strategies and programs to make the Greensboro area’s bus system more efficient, while increasing ridership.

Heidi & Rolland Baker
Rolland and Heidi Baker are the founders of IRIS Ministries, a non-profit Christian ministry dedicated to Jesus and service, especially among the poor. In 1995 they started a new ministry to the poor and homeless children in Mozambique. Beginning with nothing, within a matter of months they were given a dilapidated orphanage in Maputo with 80 children. From there, the ministry has expanded to include well-drilling, free health clinics that service the poor and sick, feeding programs, primary and secondary schools, cottage industries and now over 5000 churches in Mozambique and a total of over 10,000 churches in over 20 nations.
At the age of 15 a desire for revival in New Zealand was ignited in Seth and the history of revivals and revivalists have been read and studied since. Today Seth is the Senior Pastor of Hope Centre where weekly revival meetings have been held since God started a special outpouring of his Holy Spirit in 1995. There have been many extended times of outpouring meetings since as a revival culture continues within the local church. He is also the Apostolic leader of the Hope Network. Seth is powerfully anointed and moves with the fire of God. God uses him to shift atmospheres. Many lives have been healed, transformed and set free through his ministry.
Kristen and his wife Tasha are the senior leaders of Hope Tauranga in NZ. For decades, Kristen has been a catalyst and steward of revival in NZ and the nations. Kristen is deeply committed to raising up, equipping and releasing leaders who wholeheartedly embrace and live out the kingdom purposes of God. Kristen loves to host the presence of the Holy Spirit and see the raw power of God unleashed to transform lives and set hearts ablaze with love for Jesus. He is considered a prophetic voice and spiritual father who passionately believes the best is yet to come in and through the Body of Christ. In addition to leading the church in Tauranga, he is often invited to speak into leadership teams of other churches. He preaches and travels throughout NZ, Australia, the United States and Europe. Kristen and Tasha have been happily married since 1992, and have three children, Courtney, Josiah, and Isaac.
Duncan & his wife Kate are revivalists who carry the fire of God's love and power all over the world. Duncan and Kate are Presidents of Catch The Fire World, a global network of revival churches, missions and ministries, birthed out of the Toronto Revival. They are the Senior Leaders of Catch The Fire Church in Raleigh North Carolina, a vibrant, growing church full of the love and presence of God, which they started with their 3 beautiful daughters. They also founded the School of Revival in Raleigh. Duncan is most at home with the poorest, unreached peoples of the world. Wherever they go, the Holy Spirit does extraordinary miracles as the love of the Father and the grace of Jesus are poured out to the world.

HOW IT WORKS:
Let's face it, by now you know it takes meeting a number of people before you find someone you click with. But the problem is, how do you meet them in the first place? Sure there are ways--bars, blind dates, dating services, online, etc. But they all have their disadvantages and they take time...lots of it. What fun is it to wait around for someone to talk to you in a bar or when you're out and about? What fun is it to risk rejection over and over again striking up conversations with people you don't even know are single? What if the conversation goes well, what about the awkwardness afterwards with asking for phone numbers? With Raleigh Pre-Dating, you meet up to 12 (and sometimes more) single professionals in less than 2 hours. Think of it as a series of "facilitated introductions" just like when you go to a party with a good host. Afterwards, if there's interest (you discreetly circle on your interest sheet who you would like to hear from again), you'll get an email with links to contact your "mutual matches". There's no pressure, no rejection, no embarrassment and no games, just fun! Try it and you'll see for yourself.

Southern Culture On The Skids has been spreading the rock and roll gospel since since they formed in Chapel Hill, NC in 1983. Guitarist/singer Rick Miller, drummer Dave Hartman and bassist/singer/heartbreaker Mary Huff, play a greasy mix of surf, rockabilly, R&B and country-fried garage with a side of psych, all the while driving fans into ecstatic, sweat-drenched paroxysms of joy. It's a musical gumbo Miller calls, “Americana from the wrong side of the tracks.“ The band has been prolific and ubiquitous for over thirty years, touring everywhere from the North Carolina Prison System to Mt. Fuji, Japan and delivering what Rolling Stone calls “a hell raising rock and roll party.“In 2014 the band was honored by the Southern Folk Life Collection at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill with an exhibition featuring their music and cultural contributions. The flame-adorned La-Z-Boy from the cover of their Plastic Seat Sweat LP now resides at UNC-CH!THE ELECTRIC PINECONESSouthern Culture On The Skids' newest album, The Electric Pinecones, will be released on September 16, 2016. It's the band's fifth album on their own label, Kudzu Records. The album features 12 original SCOTS tunes - 11 brand new songs and a whole-lotta NOLA remake of the SCOTS classic, “Swamp Fox - The Original.“ All the tunes were produced and recorded at Rick's studio in NC, The Kudzu Ranch.The Electric Pinecones is a bit of a departure for the band conceptually and sonically. The inspiration for the record was born in an alter-ego side project from the early years of the band. “The Pinecones was folk-a-hill-a-billy garage band we used to put together just for kicks,“ Miller relates. “We loved the sound of '60s west coast folk rock and psych bands. The Pinecones was our outlet for material that was not in the SCOTS vein. We even opened for ourselves occasionally. The Pinecones set list was the jumping off point for this latest collection of songs.“The first single off the album, “Grey Skies,“ is a minor key mood piece with that folk-a-billy, psychedelic sound. Listen to how the acoustic 12-string riff slides into the band's hypnotic rhythms that propel Mary Huff's reflective vocal into the mind's eye of times past and love lost. “Check out the Mellotron on the chorus - that is a first for us,“ Miller says.The lead off track, “Freak Flag,“ is more upbeat, but no less tweaked, with modulating guitars riding on pounding drums after the first verse. The song's message is a good one - it is okay to be different and always respect yourself. The band debuted the song to an auditorium full of rowdy students at Carrboro Elementary School. “I was nervous,“ Miller says “if the kids don't like something they let you know, but when they started singing along with the second chorus and waving their imaginary freak flags in the air, I knew it was a hit!““Dirt Road“ is Mary's three-minute ode to sances, thunderstorms and good lovin' long gone. The song is a backwoods southern gothic ghost story that opens with a big tom fill then twists and turns around a folky strum and a fuzz guitar. Mary's spooky-good vocal takes it down that dirt road way back into the piney woods.The album also has some country rock songs that highlight the melodic side of SCOTS, with “Baby I Like You,“ “I Ain't Gonna Hang Around“ and “Given To Me“ featuring some of the best harmonies Rick and Mary have ever recorded.“Waiting On You“ is the longest song on the album, coming in at 4:22; it's a folk-garage-rocker with a sing-a-long chorus that segues into a surf raga breakdown before heading back to the big riff and out.The album has traditional Southern Culture flavor too. Check out the remake of “Swamp Fox - The Original“. This take goes back to the beginnings of the song and is much closer to capturing the essence of the many all-nighters the band pulled in NOLA with friends and colleagues. The country funk of “Rice and Beans,“ is a good humored tale of a cash strapped southern courtship, and “Midnight Caller“ is Mary's slinky R'n'B flavored woman-to-woman warning about bad men looking for good times.Song for song, on The Electric Pinecones, Southern Culture On The Skids continues to blow minds and blur the lines between genres delivering a stellar album. From their 1985 debut Voodoo Beach Party, to their 1988 international smash, Dirt Track Date (featuring the hit single “Camel Walk“), and now to the SCOTS-ified tunes of The Electric Pinecones, 30 years, 200 songs and 1,000,000 road miles in, Southern Culture On The Skids just continues to get better with time.

Pride and Prometheus will be a perfect addition for lovers of modern twists on classics.
More About Pride and Prometheus
Pride and Prejudice meets Frankenstein as Mary Bennet falls for the enigmatic Victor Frankenstein and befriends his monstrous Creature in this clever fusion of two popular classics.
Threatened with destruction unless he fashions a wife for his Creature, Victor Frankenstein travels to England where he meets Mary and Kitty Bennet, the remaining unmarried sisters of the Bennet family from Pride and Prejudice. As Mary and Victor become increasingly attracted to each other, the Creature looks on impatiently, waiting for his bride. But where will Victor find a female body from which to create the monster’s mate?Meanwhile, the awkward Mary hopes that Victor will save her from approaching spinsterhood while wondering what dark secret he is keeping from her.Pride and Prometheus fuses the gothic horror of Mary Shelley with the Regency romance of Jane Austen in an exciting novel that combines two age-old stories in a fresh and startling way.
“Dark and gripping and tense and beautiful.” —Karen Joy Fowler, New York Times bestselling author of The Jane Austen Book Club
