Richard Weiche is the barista and owner of Cafe Corsa, a cafe that specializes in individually brewed drip coffee and exquisite espresso machines. Santos Uy is one of two USC alumni who own Bacaro LA, a wine bar boasting an esoteric and affordable wine selection, with a seasonal menu.<br /> <br /> However, the changes in the community can have an unwanted outcome. With new business comes gentrification, which can raise the cost of rent and push the current population out. The solution might be a balance between improving the community and preserving the current population. If new businesses can come in and offer residents in the community alternative choices, while attracting outsiders to visit, then perhaps the perceptions of the area can change as well."

Approximately 32 fourth and fifth graders from LAUSD elementary schools work twice-a-week with CalArts faculty and student instructors to learn animation techniques and produce an animated short film. The students explore animation through making flipbooks and zoetropes, inventing characters and writing stories, recording voices and sounds, and creating cutout puppet animation.
