    Sea Level Rise 2.0...Exploring Financial Tools For Adaptation

    in Environment

    Reports of scientific studies and local government initiatives to deal with the challenge of swelling oceans fill the internet and traditional media daily. Technical experts dealing with sea level rise are hard at work in South Florida, California, the Carolinas, New York, Virginia and other vulnerable areas the world over.


    But responsible action on sea level rise issues requires another dimension of planning, for which we have just begun.


    Wall Street has a role to play too, as does your local bank and credit union. You have a personal financial role as well.


    Monetary and budgeting strategies to cope with sea level rise, for the average homeowner, renter and small business owner need to be crafted today...to be ready for tomorrow.


    In this episode, we explore some proposed tools and blueprints that financial institutions, consumers and governments should consider to properly plan for the near-term.


    Failure to adapt your financial roadmap today will result in missed options tomorrow. 


    Here we cover the comments of Dr. Leonard Berry Director of the Florida Center For Environmental Studies at Florida Atlantic University and South Florida Attorney and sea level rise advocate Mitch Chester on this vital aspect of preparing for rising seas.

    Film Re-Adaptation of Nosferatu now a Kickstarter Project

    in Pop Culture

    What do vampires, Doug Jones, black-and-white cinema, and modern green screen technology all have in common? The answer is Nosferatu - a new visual remix of the classic German expressionist 1922 black-and-white silent horror film.  


    The idea is to bring this classic horror film back to life and with a unique feel to show to a modern audience while still honoring the masters of old. Writer and director David Lee Fisher has garnered a team of creative individuals who are all collaborating to recreate the 1922 film in a rather unique way.


    Nosferatu is on KickStarter at thevampirelives.com with a goal to raise $60,000 by December 3rd.     


    Doug Jones, famed actor best known for his work as Abe Sapien in the Hellboy films, El Fauno and the Pale Man in Pan's Labyrinth, Billy Butcherson in Hocus Pocus, and the Silver Surfer in Rise Of The Silver Surfer, has been cast to portray the menacing Count Orlok. His makeup has been created by Mike Elizalde of Spectral Motion Studios.

    MOOMINS on the Riviera

    in Politics Progressive

    On Saturday, March 14th MOOMINS ON THE RIVIERA will have its US premiere at the New York International Children's Film Festival in New York, 60 years after Jansson's original comic strip class was first published in London's The Evening News. 


    Inspired by her own visit to the Riviera with her mother, Jansson created Moomin on the Riviera, a charming tale which addresses universal aspects of life such as finding joy in small things, the value of cross-cultural understanding and the power of optimism.  This new hand-drawn animation feature is the first time there has been an audio visual adaptation of Jansson's original comic strip. 


    The Moomins, Snorkmaiden and Little My, in search of adventures of their own, set sail for the glamorous Riviera. They arrive after a journey fraught with menacing storms and desert island dangers, Moominpappa (Nathaniel Parker) befriends an aristocrat and adapts a new name 'de Moomin', Snorkmaiden (Stephanie Winiecki) is dazzled by the attentions of a playboy, and Moomin (Russell Tovey) is torn between the simple life he feels comfortable with, and the luxurious movie star lifestyle that his beloved Snorkmaiden yearns to have.  An exasperated Moominmamma (Tracy Ann Oberman) retires to the relative calm of their trusty old boat to wait for her family to come to their senses.  For the very first time, the unity of the Moomins is threatened.


    MOOMINS ON THE RIVIERA is a Finnish-French co-production, produced by Hanna Hemila at Handle Productions, and Xavier Picard at Pictak. Director   says, "My ambition is to entend the work of Tove Jansson without betraying it, all the while keeping in mind her thought: "Live in peace, plant potatoes and dream."
