Take a fascinating journey into moviemaking history with special effects guru Ed Kramer. Remember the droid factory and fiery lava planet in Star Wars II & III? How about the skittering scarab beetles in The Mummy? The Quidditch course in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets? The Kraken in Pirates of the Carribbean II? The Rock Monster in Galaxy Quest? The weather & dramatic ocean effects in Twister, Deep Impact and The Perfect Storm? The T-Rex in Jurassic Park II? The multiplying puppies in 101 Dalmations? And how about the mischievous monkeys in Jumanji?
All of these memorable movie experiences and many more are the work of visual effects expert Ed Kramer. A Senior Technical Director and Visual Effects Artist at Industrial Light and Magic for many years, Ed has been an integral part of making movie magic for some of the biggest blockbusters of all time, including being part of visual effects teams winning the visual effects Academy Award in 2006 (for Pirates of the Carribbean II) and being nominated for four others. He has also done a significant amount of work for television, including Stargate SG-I and he animated the Columbia Pictures Lady with a Torch logo.
Ed's presentations on the history of visual effects are fascinating, and he has worked with many of the industry's top directors. Ed is now a professor teaching the next generation of VFX artists and still actively works in the visual effects industry.

This is for Blacks all over the world. Slavery or colonalism...we are all suffering from the effects of it.

On October 22, at Noon, my guest will be Dr. Jomarie Zeleznik. Dr. Zeleznik is Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. From 1995 until 2004 she trained geriatric fellows, internal medicine and family medicine residents, and medical students at Montefiore Medical Center. She is published in the geriatric and palliative care literature on subjects including pressure ulcers, communication between doctors and health care proxies and aging physiology. Dr. Zeleznik established Comprehensive Geriatric Care in 2004 as an office-based solo medical practice with home visits to for those patients who because they became homebound could no longer travel for primary medical care in the office. Informed by the experience of being one of the many hands-on caregivers for her own home-bound mother who died at home of complications of Parkinson's disease and the challenges of obtaining care in the home, Dr. Zeleznik remade Comprehensive Geriatric Care as direct primary care practice which provides accessible and individualized primary and palliative care to those elderly who cannot leave their homes. Dr. Zeleznik is a co-founder of The CareGivers’ Project, a not for profit which is an on and off-line organization where caregivers for elderly can express and reflect about the complexities of being a caregiver through written and visual material and get-togethers.

Are Magazines Living or Dying?
Change is often a cause of most controversy within a society and one of the hardest things to accept, but failing to do you will find you will be left behind. It was only a few decades ago, a magazine feature was almost entirely made up of words and any images appear just as an afterthought.
Is it sad that we rely on visuals, instead of words, to hold our attention?
Maybe it’s just part of The Change. Join Young Media Critics host Juanita Richburg Seon and her young associate Erika Shoemaker as they take a look back through the history of the magazine on Tuesday, October 21, 2014 at 5 p.m. EST. and talk about changes in the medium- magazine.
No, our show is not on the first Monday in October (which is past anyway). The title of this episode refers to the traditional start of the Supreme Court season.
Tuesday night we will be talking about the Supreme Court and its decisions (and non-decisions) and their impact on our lives. For example, the court's decision not to listen to arguments on marriage equality has already sent ripple effects across the nation. A stealth decision early Saturday morning on the Texas voter ID law can have a chilling effect on voting rights in any and all states seeking to suppress citizens right to vote.
What do YOU think are the most important Supreme Court decisions?
Who is your favorite Justice? Do you even have a favorite Justice?
What effects will the upcoming mid-term elections and the 2016 presidential election have on the make-up of the Supreme Court?
Join us Tuesday for what should be an enjoyable and enlightening conversation about the Supreme Court.
CALL 347-850-8445 to join the conversation.
