Adele Bates gives us an insight into being locked in a room full of teenagers and the surprising amount of engagement that grew when questions they actually want to know were anwered. Bates shows us the amount of interest teenagers can have when it comes to learning despite their negative stereotypes. Adele's unique outlook on education and youths challenges us to see children -our future- as a vast amount of knowledge and opportunity rather than burdons or misifits.

Improv Madness: Looking into the Future of a Donald Trump Presidency
BY JESS SCHUKNECHT
@ VOL 17
ON APR 14, 2016
Improv Madness: Comedians from 2 local Improv Troops made 20x20 presentations for each other. The audience suggested the topic, in this case, "Looking into the Future of a Donald Trump Presidency." Hilarity ensued.
Jess Schuknecht began studying and performing improv in 1997. Soon after, his face did ‘get stuck that way’ just as his mother had always warned him it would. Using what some may call a disability to his advantage he found making people laugh and teaching people improv was right up his alley, very literally. He did live and teach in an alley-way for several years. Fortunately by 2004 he became a founding member of Atlas Improv Company and lives in a house now, though he does visit the alley on occasion to stay in touch with his roots.
