1. Nepal: After the Quake


    from Jonah Kessel Added 604 19 4

    I came to Kathmandu one month before the earthquake hit. I returned — one month after. I came to survey recovery efforts following a month of international aid. Over 8,000 people died in this series of earthquakes that hit Nepal starting on April 25. Over 500,000 families lost their homes and hundreds of thousands more were damaged. A journey through earthquake-ravaged Nepal, a follow-up video to my earlier piece highlighting Kathmandu’s unique culture. Part two, now online at @nytvideo @nytimes.

        In November of 2010 photogenX partnered with an initiative called Pure Hope Pakistan. We want to see 100,000 water filters distributed to families in need from the massive flooding that happened in Pakistan just a few months ago. Water is still standing, communities are still left in ruins, people are in need and we need to help them! Please show your support by either buying a water filter or passing the video along to your friends and colleagues. For more information visit us at: www.purehopepakistan.com or photogenX.net

          from Relaxing Nature HD Videos Added 5,563 17 0

          Please visit our website at https://www.worldnaturevideo.com for more DVDs and Downloads. This DVD is Available at Amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/9089700196 Please read here more of the DVD Title: Waterfalls DVD-Cascades with Music And Relaxing Nature Sounds Beautifully blended scenes of nature with relaxing music and natural sounds. Cascades has three films showing waterfalls of all different shapes and sizes, shot at different times of the year, and is set to the calming and inspiring music of Simon Daum. It was filmed at the superb Cascades du Hérisson in France with additional scenes from the beautiful waterfalls, of Europe and North America. Four more tracks have the natural water sounds: Three Natural Decoration tracks show a gentle fall with Autumn leaves, a small cascade through extraordinary, red rocks, and a waterfall and river surrounded by the fresh greens of the forest. A track of Soothing Scenes offers further relaxation and slowly changing shots of different waterfalls. Please read here more of the DVD Title: Waterfalls DVD-Cascades with Music And Relaxing Nature Sounds Review of the Nature DVD of the Cascades DVD I have 38 Nature/Relaxation DVDs, including 8 from Tony Helsloot's Ambient Collection and this is my favorite. I have rated it 6/5. If I had helped film or edit this DVD I wouldn't change a scene. This is a Standard format DVD but the video quality is excellent to very good. Color, exposure (brightness), focus are great. So is the audio quality. The DVD is divided into 7 segments. There are 3 films with longish individual shots and with a nice music background. There is one film with even longer, 1-2 minutes per shot and with natural sounds. There are also 3 scenes with nautral sounds where the camera is on and doesn't move for ten minutes, which is one reason I like Tony's DVDs. The 7 segments can be played solo, or grouped into 3 or 4 segments. I like to play all and for 85 minutes enjoy great scenes of European streams, cascades, and waterfalls in lush green woods, with a few autumn shots. This DVD, coupled with Tony's "A Day at the Beach" has it all for great relaxation and pure nature scenes. Robert Ganser, US Review of the Nature DVD of the Cascades DVD Very Nice scenery and so relaxing. The music is perfect. Use it in my waiting area at the spa/clinic, patients absolutely LOVE IT. Douglas Tavarez, Florida Review of the Nature DVD of the Cascades DVD Just to let you know that the dvd's are great and we have recommended you to our therapists as they do work out with our organisation. Many thanks. Fiona Moore, Inverclyde Carers Centre Review of the Nature DVD: Cascades We ordered two DVDs from Isis Visuals via Amazon.com. The delivery was quick and the DVDs were beautiful. My wife and I co-own a Kangen Water store in Hendersonville, TN. We wanted to exude relaxation, as well as pure natural water, as potential customers enter the store. Our 46" flat screen features "Cascades" and "Waterfall Nature DVD Flow" playing constantly as part of the store's ambiance. We have received many complements on our store and every kudo has included a mention of the beautiful water footage playing on the big screen. Our complements go out to the folks at Isis Visuals for taking the time to record shots that seem so simple, yet are so rare... and then offering the video to those of us who long to get back to basics. In a day when a "glut of garbage" pollutes our media technology, it is refreshing to use the same devices to display the natural beauty that preceded us all. Thanks, John Chambers, The Kangen Water Store, US. Review of the Nature DVD: Cascades

                from Karen Piper Added 7,710 16 2

                This song was written in the early sixties by Buffy Sainte-Marie. It's about individual responsibility for war. We wanted to sing this song because, unfortunately, what Buffy sang about at her time is still is so true today and will probably be so for years to come. We changed the lyrics a bit to make it more relevant to today's society. Enjoy. :)

                  As a child we always asked ourselves: What if every person on earth would donate as little as 1 Cent? How much money could we raise? With this question at the back of our minds we want to demonstrate how the power of easily donating 1 Cent via the internet could mobilize the masses.Have a look at the OneCentInitiative and imagine how you can be part of a big change.
