UNIQUELY PERSONAL MULTIMEDIA EXPERIENCE that finds the violin virtuoso sharing stories from his life and career, UCSB Arts & Lectures will present An Evening with Itzhak Perlman on Tuesday, January 21st at 6:30pm at the Granada Theatre. Perlman will share intimate anecdotes, personal photos, and archival video, as well as live music performed with his longtime pianist, Rohan De Silva in a very special 75th birthday celebration. The rare autobiographical evening should provide fascinating insight into the early years of one of the world’s most revered musical masters. “Itzhak Perlman’s musical gifts with violin and bow are legion... [But what’s especially appealing is spending time] with his personality, which radiates joy about art, thoughtfulness when he reflects on his life as the polio-surviving prodigy who made good, happiness around loved ones, and passion for teaching,” writes the Los Angeles Times. Perlman decided that he would celebrate his 75th birthday with his first-ever multimedia experience, inviting audiences to discover the life of the extraordinary boy who became a household name more than 60 years ago. Perlman will bring to life his early dreams and inspirations; introduce the audience to his parents and other influential figures. He’ll also revisit lifechanging events – including surviving polio and his famous performance on the Ed Sullivan Show at the age of 13. “This new program is the culmination of many years of Itzhak Perlman being urged to share the story of his life and career through anecdotes, musical pieces, and personal photos from his archives,” shared Charlotte Lee, Founder of Primo Artists. “I am delighted that we will take this unique and special program to audiences around the Itzhak Perlman world.” The evening’s material will be a surprise for the audience with Perlman announcing works from the stage. The program has been produced by a team led by Peabody Award-winning broadcaster, director and producer Elliott Forrest, with Max Szadek as Co-Producer and Tony Award-winning theater director Dan Sullivan as Consultant. Charlotte Lee of Primo Artists serves as Executive Producer. The program received its world premiere in May 2019 in Kansas City, presented by the Harriman-Jewell Series. “We are indeed lucky to have Itzhak share his life and his brilliant playing with us,” added Sullivan. “Personally, there is no one I would rather spend an evening with.” Undeniably the reigning virtuoso of the violin, Itzhak Perlman enjoys superstar status rarely afforded to a classical musician. Beloved for his charm and humanity as well as his talent, he is treasured by audiences throughout the world who respond not only to his remarkable artistry but also to his irrepressible joy of music-making and communicating with audiences. Perlman has been honored with 16 Grammy Awards, four Emmy Awards, a Kennedy Center Honor, a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, a Genesis Prize, a National Medal of Arts by President Clinton, a Medal of Liberty by President Reagan, and a Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Obama which is the Nation’s highest civilian honor. Born in Israel in 1945, Perlman completed his initial training at the Academy of Music in Tel Aviv. An early recipient of an America-Israel Cultural Foundation Rohan De Silva scholarship, he was propelled to national recognition on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1958. The 60th anniversary of this milestone was celebrated with a return to the Ed Sullivan Theater on November 2nd, 2018 in a special guest appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Following Perlman’s studies at the Juilliard School with Ivan Galamian and Dorothy DeLay, he won the Leventritt Competition in 1964, which led to a burgeoning worldwide career and performances with every major orchestra and at concert halls around the globe. Itzhak Perlman is presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures and presented through the generosity of Sara Miller McCune. 2019-20 Season Community Partners are the Natalie Orfalea Foundation & Lou Buglioli and Corporate Season Sponsor is SAGE Publishing. Media Sponsors are: KCBX 89.5 FM Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara Independent, and VOICE Magazine. For tickets $50-$125/general public; $25/UCSB students with a current student ID call 805-893-3535 or purchase online at www.ArtsAndLectures.UCSB.edu.

The Lobero Theatre • 33 East Canon Perdido Street • Santa Barbara In the early 20th Century Lutah Maria Riggs navigated her way through the malecentric world of architecture and brought a freshness to the established architectural styles of Southern California. Lutah blazed a trail for women, relying on the courage of her convictions and a hint of eccentricity. She pursued her passions and created a life of independence, an exceptional choice for a woman at that time. Through never before seen photographs and journal entries from Lutah’s personal collection, and candid interviews, this documentary reveals a side of Lutah Maria Riggs that has gone unnoticed. With stunning tours of some of Santa Barbara’s most iconic structures and a rare glimpse of private homes, LUTAH sheds light on a true Santa Barbara treasure.

A Leap Into 2020!


By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE

HE HOLIDAYS ARE PASSING AT A FAST AND FURIOUS PACE, as are the years themselves. How about the idea of 2020 when the New Millennium (the year 2K when all our computers were supposed to go South) was seemingly only a couple of years ago? Perhaps it’s the magnificent view from the Santa Barbara harbor on this clear but cold Saturday, the Channel Islands crowning a calm blue ocean and shoreline, that grounds me as time appears to be rushing by. Today’s beautiful sight, I remind myself, is the same timeless panorama that greeted the Chumash for centuries. On the subject of time, you’ve also surely noticed how some things seem to fly by quickly while others move very slowly… the traffic of last week as an example.... thanks to the closure of the I-5 over the Grapevine. Unfortunately, it seems that sunny, laid back California is at a loss when a layer of snow dusts the mountaintops. My own five mile ride from downtown took 45 minutes! How’s that for a ‘rush’ hour? But time now feels like I’m violating the speed limit as I write on my brand new computer during the last days of 2019. In a

Harbor VOICE

few hours …. whoosh! it’ll be January and the year 2020! Although the perception that time rushes by leaves little room for contemplation, much has happened in the last twelve months, beginning with the acclaimed Santa Barbara International Film Festival underscoring the community’s deep and continuing commitment to the arts and the preservation of its history. Summer brought the traditional celebration of Old Spanish Days and the Fiesta parade and not long after, the tragic fire aboard the vessel ‘Conception’. The community’s generous outreach and survival from this and from the deadly Thomas Fire and debris flow is ongoing, with support coming from all directions. This year’s New Year’s celebrations have helped to turn the page and a brand new beginning is now underway. My wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous 2020 are enclosed with this column and go to each and everyone who takes the time to read it. May the months ahead bring new adventures and fun times to all, especially along the Santa Barbara’s waterfront community. Stay tuned for the latest right here.

Housing Trust Fund of SB partners with Boston Company to 3-D Print Affordable Housing

Shilling Elected Chair of KCRW Board of Directors

Monica Shilling was elected to be the KCRW Foundation’s new board chair by the KCRW Foundation’s board of directors at the beginning of December. She succeeds Matt Kline, who has served as board chair since 2017. Kline will remain on the board of directors. Shilling first joined the KCRW Foundation board in 2012 and is a transactional partner in the Los Angeles office of Kirkland & Ellis LLP. She has a broad corporate and securities law practice that focuses on advising asset managers, private equity funds, and their portfolio companies on the full lifecycle of transactions. She also represents public companies, financial advisors, investment banks, and issuers. “I have loved KCRW since 1995, when I arrived in Los Angeles Monica Shilling and found this incredible station that has inspired me and so many others over the years,” Shilling said in a news release. “This is a tremendous honor and I am humbled by my fellow board members’ confidence in me.” Shilling is experienced in mergers and acquisitions, capital markets offerings, leveraged buyouts, general corporate law and corporate governance. She also advises companies on the establishment of business development companies.

HE FUTURE OF LOW-COST HOUSING will be printed in three dimensions and affordable homes will be built in a day. It may seem like an idea from the far-flung future or science fiction, but the Housing Trust Fund of Santa Barbara, in collaboration with the Boston-based company Apis Cor, has already developed the first prototype 3-D-printed concrete, reinforced affordable home in Santa Barbara County. The HTF launched its Housing Innovations program in order to explore ways to lower the cost of producing affordable housing and encourage sustainability using new technologies along with natural and recycled building materials. Apis Cor is an East Coast engineering firm that has developed a state-of-the-art, on-site, robotic printer that is able to fabricate walls and structures in a tiny fraction of the amount of time traditional construction takes. The company recently completed its structural strength testing of its 3-D-printed walls, which should allow them to secure building permits for the new technology. The project in Santa Barbara will incorporate energy efficiency and sustainability features while engaging the community in the design of the home by demonstrating the method’s significant time and cost savings in constructing affordable housing. “It has become increasingly difficult and expensive to develop affordable housing, particularly in high-cost housing markets,” shared Jennifer McGovern, president and CEO of the Housing Trust Fund of Santa Barbara County. “We must create a paradigm shift if we are to begin to meet local, regional, and national affordable housing needs for our residents. We believe that the 3-D printing of homes will have broad future application for meeting a range of local housing needs.” In April, the HTF visited Apis Cor in Boston to meet their management team and view a demonstration of the robotic, 3-D printer, which recently printed an entire small home in just 24 hours. The printer also recently completed the world’s largest commercial building printed on site in Dubai. A main goal of the collaboration is to showcase to the Santa Barbara community, and indeed to the world, the development of a one-story, prototype, 3-D-printed, affordable home as a housing innovations and community education project that will create national interest and excitement. Another objective is to create more visibility for the use of 3-D home printing technology and sustainable building materials. The HTF plans on sharing the results of this trail-blazing collaboration with their peers in the affordable housing industry and promoting this new housing technology. “The big challenge today is to make technology that complies with all construction

requirements,” Nikita Cheniuntai, founder and CEO of Apis Core, added. “Our idea is to match 3-D printed walls with existing building standards by mimicking the concrete masonry unit wall. We believe that it might be one of the possible ways to obtain building permits for 3-D printed homes. We strongly believe that our collaboration with the HTF of Santa Barbara County will make a big impact in adapting and learning about this technology.” The HTF is a non-profit financing agency and community development financial institution whose mission is to expand affordable housing opportunities for low-to-middle income residents and workers of Santa Barbara County. www.sbhousingtrust.org

NDIA’S MAGNIFICENT SUBTERRANEAN STEPWELLS remain largely unknown both within and outside the country. Journalist Victoria Lautman has spent years documenting hundreds of the subterranean structures through articles and photographs, and her landmark book, The Vanishing Stepwells of India, was published in 2017 (Merrell Publishers, London). In SBMA’s Armchair Travel Lecture set for Sunday, January 12th, 3pm, Lautman traces the fascinating history, variety, and current state of India’s least-known edifices.

before Christmas and it showed with the pounds, not coins, being tossed into his open hat on the sidewalk. No one even knew his name, but he knew his regulars. I’m proud to say he knew my name. Coming back to Today, there was a first. The Queen’s speech was being televised from Buckingham Palace. It allowed for the making of a video of the workers lighting the main tree at Buckingham Palace. They Queen Victoria and Prince Albert also shared a photo of a fabulous 20 foot tall Nordmann Fir tree on display in St. Georg’es Hall in Windsor Castle which has 20,000 twinkling lights throughout, and a 15 foot tree in the Crimson Drawing Room of Buckingham Palace. This brings us to Prince Philip. He originally had the first Nordmann Fir tree shipped to England from Germany. It was 26 feet tall.

ODAY’S CHRISTMAS: URSULA AND PAT NESBITT HOSTED a grand extravaganza (you’ll remember I wrote about it last year). Unfortunately, I was in bed and unable to attend it and all sorts of other lovely dinners and parties! My friends who attended the Nesbitt’s fest said it was even more fabulous than last year. Bed did allow me lots of time to look at auctions on the internet, something I do enjoy. One item that caught my attention was the auction of a rare leatherbound album of etchings that were created by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. I’d never thought of Queen Victoria as an artist, but evidentially it was a very private thing, with even her family seldom getting a glimpse. Of the etchings being sold, the earliest were created in 1840 and the latest in 1848. The etchings varied in subject matter from their palaces and children to their pets. Victoria was the more productive, having produced 62 etchings. Prince Albert’s oeuvre was 25 total, although occasionally they worked on the same plate together. As special gifts for special people, they had some bound in leather albums and stamped with the crown initials of the twosome. The British Museum has one complete set of the albums which they were given by King George V in 1926. While the queen and Prince wanted to keep things in the family, King Ornaments on the Queen’s tree George felt they should be shared with the nation safely in a great museum. This brought back memories of years when I was in London the weeks before Christmas. The stores were all wonderfully decorated and lighted trees decorated everywhere in public. Harrod’s in those days had the greatest trees, just Prince Albert’s etching as the old City of Paris Department Store in San Francisco had a masterpiece of a tree and Bullock’s Wilshire in Los Angeles was famous for their huge tree that was totally of white ostrich feathers, no real tree involved. London had more than trees and lights. There were music grinders on the streets, many Gypsys, and Buskers, particularly the one who performed on the sidewalk outside the side entrance to Harrod’s. Everyone knew him in his Maurice Chevalier straw hat dancing up a storm. He was actually there all year, but he out-performed himself

Located along the waterfront in a public park, the Chromatic Gate serves as the city’s gateway, welcoming viewers with primary colors in a spectacular rainbow pallet of yellow, orange, red, purple, and blue. The director of the Academy Award winning and nominated films, Beginners and A 20th Century Woman, Santa Barbara native Mike Mills, son of Paul, continues in his father’s footsteps as an artist.

This report allows him the latitude to offer his perspective about the state of the country.

ELCOMING THE NEW YEAR, and ushering in a new decade, we look back at a decade of wonderful film projects. There were some cinema experiences that were especially rich in thematic content or disquieting reflections of societal currents. Some standouts include The Great Beauty, a masterpiece of imagery, all shot in the Eternal City, Rome, from director Paolo Sorrentino; last year’s searing autobiographical film Roma, directed by Alfonso Cuarón; the ominous Melancholia from director Lars von Trier; Tangerine, an urban portrait of transvestites shot on an iPhone by director Sean Baker; Tree of Life from style-setting director Terrence Malick and starring Brad Pitt; this year’s Parasite from South Korean director Boon Jong-ho; and a short from innovative director Mtume Grant, Whiteface, looking at racial identity with a laser-like focus. Other terrific films included two from the sensitive writer-director Luca Guadagnino and include I Am Love from 2010 and featuring Tilda Swinton and Call Me By Your Name, both set in Italy; Moonlight from the perceptive filmmaker Barry Jenkins; this year’s vivid WWII Russian drama Beanpole (which may be released in late January); Jordan Peale’s savagely amusing psychological thriller Get Out; The Secret World of Foley, a remarkably enlightening short from London-based filmmaker Daniel Jewell about the mechanics of sound effects in movies; Greta Gerwig’s audacious autobiographical film Still from The Great Beauty Lady Bird; and a memorable exploration of the passage of time in director Robert Guédiguian’s The House By the Sea (La Villa) set in a coastal village in France where global issues are changing a traditional way of life. Other honorable mentions include Birds of Passage from Colombia, a sprawling indictment Still from Roma of the drug trade; an enlightening and amusing-drama from Sweden, featuring an avalanche, called Force Majuere; Wes Anderson’s delightful The Grand Budapest Hotel; the haunting Under the Skin starring Scarlett Johansson which interweaves a memorably frightening score from Mica Levi; Still from House by the Sea (La Villa) Short Term 12, an intriguing look at the desperation of foster teens starring Brie Larsen; and Phantom Thread, a 1950s period portrait exquisitely illustrated by director Paul Thomas Anderson and which may be the always-great Daniel Day Lewis’s last film role, upon his retirement from acting. – Robert F.

DIVERSE AND DESERVING SET OF PERFORMERS has been singled out for recognition as 2020 SBIFF Virtuoso awardees, each having made their mark in film acting in a movie released during 2019. The awards will be held at the Arlington Theatre on Saturday, January 18th, at 8pm in an event promising excitement! The evening will be moderated by one of the best hosts in the business, Turner Classic Movies’ Dave Karger. The illustrious group of eight actors includes Awkwafina (The Farewell), Taron Egerton (Rocketman), Cynthia Erivo (Harriet), Beanie Feldstein (Booksmart), Aldis Hodge (Clemency), George MacKay (1917), Florence Pugh (Midsommar and Little Women), and Taylor Russell (Waves). According to Karger, “this year’s Virtuosos range from comedies to dramas, from the U.S. to the United Kingdom, and acted in either leading or supporting roles. What they all have in common is that they shined in films this year. These are the most exciting rising talents and they’re all breaking through in a major way this year. I can’t wait to see all of them in Santa Barbara.” Audiences will get to meet Awkwafina, an Asian-American comedienne, rapper and actress who played the leading role in director Lulu Wang’s The Farewell this year. The film has received many accolades and she has been nominated for a coveted Golden Globe award. Actor Taron Egerton will be recognized for embodying a young Elton John in this year’s most sensational rock and roll biographical film, Rocketman. His sensitive portrayal of the younger and awkward songwriterperformer has been enthusiastically received by audiences worldwide. The Tony award-winning stage actress Cynthia Erivo will be honored for her valiant work in a historical fictional narrative, Harriet, about the abolitionist Harriet Tubman. Erivo has been nominated for both a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Best Actress awards for playing Tubman, and critics have taken notice. A young character actress, Beanie Feldstein will be feted for her leading role in actress/director Olivia Wilde’s well-received first feature Booksmart. A funny coming of age story, Feldstein has contributed to the film’s boxoffice success and has been nominated for a Golden Globe acting award. She was memorable in 2017’s Ladybird, alongside lead actress Saoirse Ronan. Aldis Hodge is being recognized for his work in Clemency, a film that won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival last year. Hodge was featured in the well-received Straight Outta Compton and was featured in 2016’s popular Hidden Figures. Young English actor George MacKay rose to the challenge in playing an enigmatic young soldier in Sam Mende’s sensational World War I film, 1917, which will open wide for a release in early January, about the dangerous journey undertaken by pair of soldiers moving through enemy lines. MacKay was able to capture the essence of a soldier with a conflict in which many did not come home due to annihilation on the hellscape battlefields of France. English actress Florence Pugh made a splash in the intriguingly ominous feature Midsommar and capped the year off with her grounded portrayal of Amy March, one of the sisters in Greta Gerwig’s new version of Little Women. Her career looks to be gathering full steam and her work is central to the success of Little Women. She will be an interesting presence to see in person at this event. Taylor Russell, a young Canadian actress, will be recognized for her work in Waves in which she provided a stand-out performance opposite Lucas Hedges (Lady Bird) in the ensemble family drama. Russell has also received a Breakthrough honor at the Gotham Awards and had a leading role in Netflix’s remake of Lost in Space in 2018. Given the caliber of these fine performers, the awards presentation is bound to be one of the highlights of this 35th edition of the film festival. UGG® will be the key sponsor for the evening which promises to be deeply absorbing with an entertaining spotlight on the career trajectories of these emerging talents, some of whom may be future leading actors in the film industry. Last year’s recipients of The Virtuosos Awards included Yalitza Aparicio (Roma), Sam Elliott (A Star is Born) , Elsie Fisher (Eighth Grade), Claire Foy (First Man), Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me?), Thomasin McKenzie (in this year’s JoJo Rabbit), John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman), and Steven Yeun (Burning). Prior Virtuosos honorees have included Academy Award nominees and winners including Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out), Mahershala Ali, (Green Book), Timothée Chalamet (Beautiful Boy and Call Me by Your Name), Viola Davis (Widows), Brie Larson (Room), J.K. Simmons (Whiplash), Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird) Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water), and Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), among others. Courtesy Photo

By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE

HE COMMERCE DEPARTMENT’S FINAL ESTIMATE OF THIRD QUARTER U.S. ECONOMIC GROWTH was unchanged at 2.1 percent, as strong consumer spending was offset by weaker business investment and shrinking inventories. Consumers were the difference, as they kept up spending at a 3.2 percent annual pace, which was not quite as strong as the second quarter’s very strong 4.6 percent rate but enough to counteract the drop in business investment and inventories. Companies are not restocking their shelves as if they expect things to improve next year, in other words. In fact, there was a significant decline in spending that would create future growth. Q3 investments in structures fell 2.3 percent and spending on equipment declined 9.9 percent. Why? Corporate profits are declining. Adjusted pretax corporate profits were revised in the final estimate to show a -0.2 percent decline instead of a +0.2 percent increase. Profits have fallen 1.2 percent in the past year, suggesting that business investment is unlikely to accelerate anytime soon. The Business Roundtable recently said an index that measures CEOs’ outlook for the economy fell for the seventh quarter in a row, adding to doubts about future growth. The index slipped 2.5 points to 76.7, a bit below its historic average, reports MarketWatch. Once again CEOs are saying the trade fight with China is widely viewed to have weakened the global economy, dampened U.S. exports, and hurt American manufacturers. “CEOs remain cautious in the face of uncertainty over trade policy and an associated slowdown in global growth and the U.S. manufacturing sector, which is currently contracting,” said the Roundtable. This is while another indicator of future growth was basically flat. The “The U.S. Leading Economic Index (LEI) was unchanged in November after three consecutive monthly declines. Strength in residential construction, financial markets, and consumers’ outlook offset weakness in manufacturing and labor markets,” said Ataman Ozyildirim, Senior Director of Economic Research at The Conference Board. “While the six-month growth rate of the LEI remains slightly negative, the Index suggests that economic growth is likely to stabilize around two percent in 2020.” This is what happens when corporate profits decline. It has to mean CEOs will eventually cut back on hiring as well. Stocks are rallying to record highs on news that a Phase I trade agreement with China should be signed in January. But its details are extremely vague, as China says it doesn’t want to buy all the agricultural products that Trump is demanding to help him in his re-election, for starters.å There are so many details to still be worked out, in other words. And there is so much geopolitical uncertainty that companies will have to deal with in the New Year—Brexit, the EU maybe in recession, Trump’s impeachment trial, Russian interference with the 2020 election, etc. So lots to worry about. Why not keep some cash on hand for the next rainy day?

Santa Barbara Historical Museum

Henry Chapman Ford Exhibition Now Open


By Mark M. Whitehurst, PhD / VOICE

IVIL WAR ILLUSTRATOR HENRY CHAPMAN FORD was one of Santa Barbara’s first professional artists with an international reputation. Considered a pivotal founder of the arts colony that developed here in the late 1800’s, Ford’s artwork is now on display at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum in an exhibition titled: Henry Ford Chapman (1828 to 1994) Collection. Featuring 27 local scenes, the exhibit opened December 11th. “Ford’s gallery was the first serious one to open in Santa Barbara and there is a photograph of it in the show, which is most interesting in that it reflects his professional work,” commented John C. Woodward, Esq., former SBHM Trustee, and local art collector. Ford studied art in France before the Civil War. During the war he was hired by the US Military as an illustrator. He then moved to Chicago, where he helped found the Chicago Academy of Design. In 1875 he moved to Santa Barbara with his wife Helen for his health and fell in love with the area. Ford soon was revered for his paintings of local historical sites, architecture, landscapes, and especially his large portfolio of the California Missions. His portfolio contained sketches, etchings, and watercolors. Etchings of the 21 Franciscan Missions of California were published as a book in 1893 and his work was displayed at the Chicago World’s Fair that same year. Ford’s arrival in Santa Barbara marked the beginning of a thriving artist community and his civic work added to his local reputation. He founded the Santa Mission Santa Barbara, 1880 by Henry Chapman Ford Barbara Horticulture Society and the Santa Barbara Society of Natural History. “Santa Barbara is lucky to have had a serious artist as a permanent resident etchings in the original leather portfolio that Ford took to the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893 and a before any other city in the State of California except for San Francisco. It is partly the longevity painting looking down at the valley where the city now stands from above the Mission,” continued of Santa Barbara’s art community that makes so many lives in the arts possible today,” commented Tessmer. Jeremy Tessmer, a curator at Sullivan Goss: An American Gallery, in Santa Barbara. The exhibition and opening reception were sponsored by Sharon and David Bradford, The Ford’s work can still be found for sale in local galleries such as Sullivan Goss: An American Hutton Parker Foundation, and John C. Woodward, an expert on Santa Barbara art and artifacts and Gallery and James Main Fine Art. His works are included in the collections of Stanford University www.SBHistorical.org a former trustee of the SBHM. Museum; San Diego Historical Society; University of California, Berkeley; Ventura County Museum of History & Art; and the Oakland Museum. The University of Iowa Libraries lists an impression of A Southern California Glen by Ford in its permanent collection. “We have handled quite a bit of his work. In 2006, we mounted an exhibition called The Missions and Early California Buildings, which featured a number of the most important works by the artist that we have ever had. Two works that I remember quite fondly: a complete set of the Mission
