The New York Times James Dao, columnist November 8, The Lincoln Community Foundation was recognized in a New York Times article as one of the more effective Community-based alliances that tailor services to local needs of returning veterans rather than creating overlapping organizations.
The plethora of private organizations has brought comfort and vital services to thousands, filling gaps left by overwhelmed government agencies. Though giving to military and veterans groups has increased — a survey by the Foundation Center suggests it has more than tripled since — many veterans advocates say donations have not kept pace with the growing needs of new veterans.

Fall Newsletter Published on Oct 31, To catch up on the latest Lincoln Community Foundation happenings click here to download the newsletter. According to everyone I spoke with, Franco has an unusually high metabolism for productivity. He seems to suffer, or to benefit, from the opposite of ADHD: When I asked people if Franco actually does all of his own homework, some of them literally laughed right out loud at me, because apparently homework is all James Franco ever really wants to do.
It was an extra lecture he was sitting in on, after a full day of work and school, because he wanted to hear the speaker. Everyone else would do, at most, one. He just sat outside my office waiting. In the interview, the two faculty members who were with me were skeptical and really held his feet to the fire.
When Franco was 4 years old, a friend of the family died. Betsy gave him the standard Mortality Talk: Little James burst into tears. I have so much to do! How his assistant gets him through the day. He has the luxury of not having to worry about it. Except it always does. The party is sponsored by Polaroid, which is using the occasion to promote its new Polaroid camera so aggressively it feels almost like a satire of publicity: Everyone is taking photos, or photos of photos, or video of photographers taking photos of photos.
Over the course of the party, Franco stands mainly right near the front door, creating a bulge of admirers that makes it hard to get in and out of the building. He looks, tonight, not like a grad student but like a swashbuckling young Hollywood leading man: Partygoers approach and compliment him, exchange pleasantries with him, take cell-phone pictures of him.
He seems impatient, genuinely baffled. Why not do as many things I love as I can? As long as the work is good. At the end of the session, the real artist tapes all of his portraits together into one big collage of fractured Franco.
And every time he tried a medium, it capitulated. They struggle against him, making him earn every modest inch of success. His directing is daring but often heavy-handed.

His main artistic obsession and why it seems appropriate. This seems appropriate on several levels. His own adolescence was unusually formative: It turned him from an obedient young math prodigy into a turbocharged art fanatic.
Franco is developing all kinds of new strengths, but at the cost of some of his dignity: His intellectual skin is a little spotty, his artistic legs are suddenly too long for the rest of his body. Yet Franco is making a spectacle of it. Which is, in a way, brave. I know quite a few women who would be happy to keep you occupied.
In this sense, too, Franco seems to be living an extended public adolescence. Although Franco has been silent on this subject, he seems to enjoy stoking the controversy. His art, across the spectrum, revels in gay culture. When Franco mentioned to me, via e-mail, that he was leaning toward going to Yale for his Ph. Warner happens to be one of the pioneers of queer theory, a school of thought born in the early nineties just as Franco was hitting adolescence that argues that sexuality is not a trivial, personal matter but fundamental to how we all experience the world.
Franco, you might say, is queering celebrity: His obvious relish for gay roles challenges the default heterosexuality of Hollywood leading men like Clooney or Pitt. He seems more interested in fluidity, in every sense, than in a fixed identity. What his girlfriend thinks about his work and reputation. She was an acting student at Playhouse West, the school Franco had studied at years before.Dave Franco, Kumail Nanjiani and Fred Armisen Answer the Web's Most Searched Questions - WIRED
He was an increasingly famous actor on the brink of a career crisis. It seems emblematic that Ahna, who lives in L. He was so, so happy. And it was funny how it worked: Once he gave up trying to control his acting career, everything kind of came his way. It seems like the work of a virtuoso public-image artist. And yet Franco plays the role, fairly convincingly, of the earnest boy just following his interests.
His work itself, his career choices, are more interesting than his words. It started as a joke between Franco and his artist friend Carter, who were discussing a movie in which Franco would play a former soap star. It occurred to them that it would be funny if Franco actually showed up, sometime, on a real soap opera.
This fit nicely into a constellation of ideas Franco had already been thinking about: He unleashes the full soap-opera repertoire: His story arc will culminate, this month, in a very special episode set in the Museum of Contemporary Art in L. Franco himself, the real human, is also going to have a show at MoCA this summer based on his experience on General Hospital.

Franco has torn out, doodled on, and framed pages of that book all over the gallery. One of its first rooms features a large pile of junk heaped on the floor: T-shirts, books, VHS tapes, lunch boxes.
