storytelling through film.
My game highlights reel from a truly moving event: Oscar Winner Geena Davis and Rosie O'Donnell hosted an "A League of Their Own" reunion - sisters Gina Casey and Alice Fracasso (the real-life inspirations for the now-classic movie) threw the opening pitch; country music star Sara Evans sang the National Anthem (and played!) and Olympic Gold Medalist Jennie Finch pitched for Geena's team. Nothing beats dangling over a dugout with a camera!
Despite their name, the main ingredient in “silver” fillings is actually mercury - one of the most toxic materials known to man. Dr. Yuko Torigoe, DMD, AIAOMT (www.harmonyboston.com) demonstrates iaomt.org's SMART protocol for mercury amalgam removal. For more details, visit www.thesmartchoice.com and www.iaomt.org.
Nyk Smith, a/k/a Queen Beet, issues a personal challenge to the First Lady: to try one of her beet-based products at her Royal Beets Corner Market on Dr. ML King Avenue in historic St. Augustine, FL (the nation's oldest city). Royal Beets is housed in a very historic area of St. Augustine: Lincolnville - a neighborhood that played a major role in the Civil Rights Movement.
At a special "Geena and Friends" event at the Crystal Bridges Museum, Oscar Winner Geena Davis beautifully illustrates her research on gender and the media: Rosie O'Donnell, Khandi Alexander, Geena Davis, and Alysia Reiner perform a table read (and later do a Q&A) where they reimagine dialogue from all-male movie scenes, expanding our vision of richer voices and roles for everyone.
Truckdrivers tend to have a shorter lifespan than the average American. Portland, Oregon's Dr. Bud ("America's Wellness Sergeant") is turning that trend around with an innovative program: Truckers To Triathletes - following Dr. Bud, I got to (a) strap a camera to my bike helmet, and (b) use my new underwater camera!
Hurricane Sandy caused devastation barely imaginable in Lower Manhattan and beyond. Meet Polygon - a company tasked with stepping in when disaster strikes and picking up the pieces - from pumping out subways to rescuing cultural artifacts. My camera and I will never forget walking the closed NYC subway tunnels armed with a hard hat and head lamp.
Polygon requested a follow-up piece showcasing how their technology can, in effect, change the weather. My camera and I hopped on some scaffolding and shot a 41-foot-high art installation created by Dorothea Rockburne to honor Colin Powell - Polygon was assisting in creating the perfect climactic conditions to keep the massive canvas flat, so that artists could apply gold leafing - before shipping it down to the US Embassy in Jamaica.
