Bob Duggan frequently refers to "our national disease-care system" when he talks about his new book, employing a term he has used across his 40-plus years as a healing-arts clinician and educator. As co-founder and former president of Tai Sophia Institute, a North Laurel graduate school of complementary medicine, wellness-based education and research, he believes that labeling our current system "health care" is a gigantic misnomer — and a point of national disgrace. In "Breaking the Iron Triangle: Reducing Health-Care Costs in Corporate America," Duggan offers a vision of a sustainable, wellness-based future in which corporations and entrepreneurs are able to slash rising health-care costs by investing in programs that focus on wellness instead of disease.

Musicians collaborate all the time; so do actors. But artists, not really - and that goes double for street art, where making an individual mark is the name of the game. That's why one of Baltimore's best-known street artists had to try it. The result is a head-turning show called ZimZum, opening Saturday at the Creative Alliance . It features an expansive indoor and outdoor group effort between Baltimore Love Project founder Michael Owen and the artists Gaia and Momo. "Most street artists just want to put their voice up on a wall," Owen says.
