Flores, an attorney who has represented Hernandez, as it looks at $3,900 provided by Flores' law firm to Hernandez's campaign in 2009.

This island had everything: empty beaches, waves perfect for surfing, coral reefs, smoking volcanoes. A mosaic of cultures, masterful arts. So where were all the tourists? About 500 miles northwest of the tip of Australia, Flores is surely one of the loveliest of the more than 13,500 islands of Indonesia. But in contrast to tourist centers like Bali, Flores remains a tranquil, deeply traditional, little-visited place. Even its name is a puzzle.

Like folk art and fine art, or mezcal and worms, sins and miracles might seem like a very odd couple. But for Demián Flores and Lila Downs, mixing pecados (sins) and milagros (miracles) proved to be a potent combination. Flores is a Oaxacan graphic artist and painter who often creates mash-ups of pop-culture and pre-Columbian imagery. Critics' darling Downs is a Oaxaca-born, Mexican American singer-songwriter. She's known for her theatrical stage persona and a syncretic musical style that cross-stitches elements of jazz, hip-hop, rock and ranchera.

He was very welcoming every day. I had a very nice connection. " Actor-turned-filmmaker Travis Fine was a regular on the ABC 1989-92 western series "The Young Riders," when he met Chris Burke, the Down syndrome star of the acclaimed drama "Life Goes On," which was also on the network at the time.

In Jean-Marc Vallée's time-shifting question mark of a movie "Café De Flore," love is a force by turns organic, therapeutic, alienating and enough of a connective tissue to bind two seemingly incongruent stories. One of Vallée's parallel tales is set in 1969 and concerns a Parisian single mother (an effective Vanessa Paradis) of less-than-modest means committing herself fully to the developmental needs of her Down syndrome son. The other follows a present-day Montreal DJ (Kevin Parent)
