Beginning in the wake of the shootings at Columbine, a small town in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania elected a charismatic judge who was hell-bent on keeping kids in line. Under his reign, over 3,000 children were ripped from their families and imprisoned for years for crimes as petty as creating a fake MySpace page. When one parent dared to question this harsh brand of justice, it was revealed that the judge had received millions of dollars in payments from the privately-owned juvenile detention centers where the kidsmost of them only in their early teenswere incarcerated.

Many archaeologists believe that the first peoples arrived in North America between 15,000 to 13,000 years ago traveling overland from Northeastern Asia. Another theory suggests that North Americas first humans reached the continent by boat from Asia perhaps as early as 16,000 years ago. John Erlandson, PhD believes that if humans migrated from Asia to the Americas along Pacific Rim coastlines near the end of the Pleistocene era, kelp forests may have aided their journey. Dr. Erlandson will share new evidence for his theory known as the kelp highway.
