Special Guest: Willard Wigan is a sculptor from Birmingham, England, who makes microscopic art. Willard’s micro-sculptures are so minute that they are only visible through a microscope. Each piece commonly sits within the eye of a needle, or on a pin head.
Willard’s artwork has been described by many as “the eighth wonder of the world”. Such accolade resulted in him being honoured by HM. Queen Elizabeth II with an MBE for his services to art, which was presented by HRH. Prince Charles in July 2007.
Owners of Willard’s work now include: HRH. Prince Charles, Sir Elton John, Sir Philip Green, Lord Bath, Mike Tyson and Simon Cowell to name but a few. Willard’s latest piece, the Coronation Crown was requested by HRH Queen Elizabeth II in tribute to her celebration to her Diamond Jubilee. http://www.willard-wigan.com
Special Guest: Horologist Stephen Forsey partner in the Greubel Forsey watch making company. In 1999 Greubel and Forsey began working on a new generation of tourbillon specifically designed to improve the timekeeping of the mechanical watch. Four years later they unveiled "Greubel Forsey" and stunned horological aficionados with their innovative Double Tourbillon 30°, a timepiece clearly demonstrating their twin goals of innovation and excellence. http://www.greubelforsey.com
Art Piece 1 is collaboration between Robert Greubel, Stephen Forsey and Willard Wigan, and features one of Wigan’s micro-sculptures, observable through special optics.
Beekman Place, once one of the most exclusive addresses in Manhattan, had a curious way of making it into the tabloids in the 1930's: “SKYSCRAPER SLAYER,” “BEAUTY SLAIN IN BATHTUB” read the headlines. On Easter Sunday in 1937, the discovery of a grisly triple homicide at Beekman Place would rock the neighborhood yet again—and enthrall the nation. The young man who committed the murders would come to be known in the annals of American crime as the Mad Sculptor.
The charismatic perpetrator, Robert Irwin, was a brilliant young sculptor who had studied with some of the masters of the era. But with his genius also came a deeply disturbed psyche; Irwin was obsessed with sexual self-mutilation and was frequently overcome by outbursts of violent rage.
Irwin’s primary victim, Veronica Gedeon, was a figure from the world of pulp fantasy—a stunning photographer's model whose scandalous seminude pinups would titillate the public for weeks after her death. Irwin’s defense attorney, Samuel Leibowitz, was a courtroom celebrity with an unmatched record of acquittals and clients ranging from Al Capone to the Scottsboro Boys. And Dr. Fredric Wertham, psychiatrist and forensic scientist, befriended Irwin years before the murders and had predicted them in a public lecture months before the crime.
Based on extensive research and archival records, The Mad Sculptor recounts the chilling story of the Easter Sunday murders—a case that sparked a nationwide manhunt and endures as one of the most engrossing American crime dramas of the twentieth century. The book evokes the faded glory of post-depression New York and the singular madness of a brilliant mind turned against itself.

MISSION 20: MIP PERU MICRO PROJECTS.
MICRO PROJECTS FUNDING PROPOSALS :
Our Mission Statement for Tarapoto, Disrict of San Martin, Peru.
Our Mission here in Peru came from within each of us as a grand collective consciousness to do three main tasks. 1) Meet our ancient ancestors 2) Learn the culture and diversity in Nature to become familiar with its outstanding Natural Beauty and 3) Devise a plan to create a new system of the future that will allow the old corrupt system to simply go away.
4 Months ago a group of people assembled here in Peru on a mission to clean the Jungle and it’s rivers and show the people new friendly technologies and ancient technologies and it just makes great sense that Peru was the chosen place from within.
We have managed to currently fund the Acquisition of most of the new technology items that will be apart of the New Dome Operational Technology as listed below. The reason for doing this is the fact that Villagers will need at least 6 months intuitive sessions to understand what is landing on their doorstep and it is wise to assume the education needs of these beautiful people, when it comes to new technologies such as the QEG and the 3D Printer and The Light Mandala.
Currently you can pick one microproject and help fund that project like the demonstration Aquaponics system here in El Achual, Tarapoto or the Bio-Gas project that is not yet being funded or the radio station.
This will be a precursor to The Crowd-funding for the New Dome Center once we have completed all Micro projects below and taught the children and villagers how to use the new technologies and new health medicines on route to their villages.
Tonight on Green Talk Live & More the Chefs will be discussing the creation and proliferation of local micro food systems and its impact on communities in NYC.

Miami, FL – In the heart of Miami Beach, Sally Drinkhouse and Nicole Pritchett are opening one of the coolest additions to the hottest city in Florida: ice bar and premier lounge Drinkhouse Fire and Ice, the first of its kind in South Florida, is set to open in the spring across from the Ritz-Carlton in South Beach.
Every inch of the bar will be made from ice, from the furniture to the art and even the drink glasses. However, one of the most notable features of the ice bar is its state of the art LED light system and energetic décor – selenite tables, crystals and photography by Peter Lik, one of the world’s most renowned landscape photographers.
“Selenite is a powerful crystal known for its ability to remove negativity from its surroundings,” says Drinkhouse.
The bar will also feature world-class ice sculptures and unique hand-carved pieces courtesy of award-winning ice sculptor David Berman.
"I think this city is ready for a truly unique entertainment experience," says Drinkhouse.
On the weekends the lounge will feature both locally and internationally-known DJ’s, as well as feature talented choreographers from around the world, like internet sensation Lady Casa, whose following is incomparable in the nightlife dance scene.
In addition to the Ice bar, Samadhi lounge, a ‘warm’ bar and elite speakeasy located within the ice bar, will feature unpretentious service, energetic décor, and the freshest ingredients mixed with the finest spirits to offer exceptional cocktails and an intimate, memorable experience.
The temperature inside the bar will be kept at a cool 23 degrees and guests will be supplied with faux fur-lined hooded capes and leather gloves to keep warm.

ENVISION THIS: “Enhancing the natural flow of carbons to soil will result in increased microbial diversity, improved nutrient cycles, expanded water holding capacity, greater resilience, improved ecosystem health, and a more satisfying, profitable future for farmers and ranchers”…and, as a co-benefit, sequesters carbon from the atmosphere!
In Grass, Soil, Hope, A Journey through Carbon Country our guest, Courtney White explores the multiple ways CO2, when sequestered in soil, can become our ally instead of our enemy. Here’s just some of the food for thought offers us:
“Carbon is not ‘the bad guy’—carbon is part of our essence. Its story needs to be told and heard. It is our past, present, and future. It is our story. It is the story of grass. The story of green. The color of hope.”
“Every living thing above ground—whether it’s hairy vetch, a mighty ponderosa pine, an elusive coyote, an endangered bird, a busy beaver, or an equally busy human being—depends on the vast universe of life in the soil…and at the heart of this micro world is carbon, the glue that holds the web together.”
“The Greenhorns are the new alchemists. Carbon and glomalin are the new alchemy. Food is the new gold.”
“Art, harmony, beauty, aesthetics—as perceived by us—are all signs of health in nature and ourselves…The principles that made a practice restorative and regenerative were the same ones that made it beautiful.”
“We don’t need to wait for something new under the sun to come along to restore the land and ourselves to health. It’s here.”
Join Courtney and us in exploring these hopeful observations for which Michael Pollan wrote a foreword.
