I've been having thoughts along these lines as well. The idea that our western governments are actually working for the benefit of us individual citizens is one of many problems (assuming "we" prefer a fair society for all).

From the post: "There has been a boom market in dystopian young adult fiction over the past decade. There is a reason for this. Play and recreation is an important training mechanism in young mammals by which they practice or rehearse activities that will fit them for later adult life experiences."

At the 2 minute mark is a story about how my daughter Leah and her co worker both helped saved a man's life in the line of duty as lifeguards at a Richmond B.C. swimming pool. 
Proud dad moment!

That worked. :)

It's also nice the reporter didn't stop with the awards and delivered more information on the importance of defib machines too.

Another great unplugged cover. I'm definitely a fan!
We all know how good +boyceavenue  is especially Alejandro's voice, but man, their technical prowess especially the tuning of that guitar is something.

This showed up in my mail (almost) anonymously.. 
It looks to be about Freeman Dyson and his son George.. Interesting so far!

This is head-shot #55 - Jesse Rinka - Wedding/Portrait photographer
I got to know Jesse way before I started The Project through the Fstoppers group on Facebook. He's a genuine and kind guy, my goal with his head-shot was to capture that kindness.
Funny story, I go to NYC a few times a week and work out of an office on 55th and Lexington Ave. I've known Jesse for over a year now and had no idea his office was literally across the street, about 700ft away. Gotta love NYC!
