MBA Ethics/ Deadly Avalanche/ Lone Twin/ Kiyo Sato


MBA Ethics If you study for an MBA, you'll learn about accounting and management, but what about ethics? Today on Insight, we'll talk with two professors who teach and study business curriculum.

Deadly Avalanche A new book about a deadly avalanche at Alpine Meadows in 1982 is just out. Today on Insight, the author of "A Wall of White" tells you about the tragedy that happened near Lake Tahoe and how one woman came to be saved after spending five days under the avalanche.

Jennifer Woodlief signs books from 5 to 6:30 p.m. today at Bookshelf, 11310 Donner Pass Road, Truckee. She'll also be at Mind Play Bookstore, Village at Squaw Valley, Olympic Valley from 3 to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 4th.

Lone Twin It's not unusual to see a couple of guys on bikes in Davis. But, this month, there are two guys on bikes in Davis on an unusual mission. They're cycling around the city for hours every day gathering stories and at the end of each day, they put on a performance piece in downtown Davis based on the stories they've found. They're a performance art group called Lone Twin and they're in residence for a month at the Mondavi Center. You'll meet them.

Lone Twin presents "To the Century" at 5:30 p.m. daily through Saturday, April 18th at the E Street Plaza between Second and Third streets in Downtown Davis.

Kiyo Sato The moving memoir of a California Japanese-American family has been reissued by a major publisher. Author Kiyo Sato - born in Sacramento and now living in Folsom - wrote her book under the title "Dandelion Through the Crack." It was published by the Nevada City company Willow Valley Press. The book's success attracted the attention of New York publisher Soho Press and it's been reissued with the title "Kiyo's Story." We spoke with Kiyo Sato in 2007 when the book first came out. This interview originally aired Aug. 27th, 2007.
