Giosetta Capriati was named adviser to the president of the Foreign Policy Association (FPA). The organization, founded in 1918, serves as a catalyst for developing awareness, understanding and informed opinion on U.S. foreign policy and global issues. A public relations expert based in New York, the Italian-born Giosetta has been involved in high-level projects in the United States, Europe and Asia. She will work closely with FPA President Noel Lateef to expand the association’s corporate program and raise its visibility worldwide. Longtime Kenyan politician George Saitoti is running for president of his native country. He has served as vice president, minister of finance and minister of education. A profile in The Nation in Nairobi said of the former Wien Scholar, “For the nearly 30 years he has been in politics, his epitaph has been written more times than one cares to remember, yet he has this uncanny ability to bounce back, earning himself the media tag of ‘Kenya’s Comeback Kid’ with the proverbial nine lives of a cat. Just when his critics are about to write him off the political landscape, he springs back to life.” Judith Allen is the assistant director of the Connie Hogarth Center for Social Action at Manhattanville College in Purchase, N.Y. She co-wrote, produced and directed “Things Are Looking Grimm — a Hydro-Fractured Fairytale” for Collaborative Concepts, where it was presented in September 2011.
