Introduction T.H. Culhane (shown above in Athens, Greece, by the poster to the movie "Stealth" which he contributed vocal music to while working with his friend,composer Brian Transeau) and Sybille Culhane live and work in Egypt, Germany and the United States where they run "Solar Cities". Referring to Herman Daly's comments on the sustainability of Spaceman Economies and Cowboy Economies, we are committed to Boulding and Fuller's notions of helping to maintain "spaceship earth" as a viable home. Thus T.H. completed his Ph.D. at UCLA in Urban Planning looking at issues surrounding microeconomic analysis of demand for hot water technologies. Ultimately it is hoped that this will help address implementation challenges for Solar Energy Policy while helping create an Environmental Economics Institute at AUC and a Sustainability Center at Mercy College in New York, in partnership with mentor professors (among them Randall Crane and Lois Takahashi (UCLA Institute of the Environment and UCLA Urban Planning) Jeff Miller (AUC Biology),Salah Arafa (AUC Physics) Tarek Selim (AUC Economics) Salah El Haggar (AUC Engineering) Nick Hopkins (AUC Anthropology) and Moshira Hassan (AUC Marine Ecology)

In the dream where you show up to school naked, why do you never go swimming?

Our school didn't have a swimming pool. Only privileged folks can easily have such dreams.
