        In fall 2005, I was studying at Radboud Universiteit in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. In one of my classes, International Political Economy, I was the only American (indeed, I believe I was the only non-Dutch student in the class). The professor asked me to do a presentation on American cities, and this PowerPoint was the result. The presentation focused on the three American cities with which I was most familiar at the time: 2:40 Washington, D.C. 5:09 Charlotte 13:23 Salt Lake City For Washington, D.C., I gave my classmates a tour of the city. I highlighted its classic Baroque plan, with broad diagonal streets, such as Pennsylvania Avenue, that connect the large civic buildings housing America’s political institutions. It is a city that endeavors to be an appropriate stage for public engagement and public protest as the capital of the world’s foremost democracy. For Charlotte, I veered away from the urban plan and layout of the city to a broader discussion of the city’s status and history, explaining to my classmates that, in many ways, Charlotte is a very typical American city, without any particular historical narrative, distinguishing role, or geographic feature for which it is particularly notable. Yet, as such, it has a complex history and plays an outsized role on the world stage. I presented Salt Lake City as a study in contrasts with Washington, D.C. D.C. is a political capital while Salt Lake is a religious one. I presented a tour of Temple Square and its design, the architecture and roles of its buildings, and how it interacts (or fails to interact) with the city around it. The closing portion of the presentation deals with two issues my classmates asked me to discuss. The first of these was gun violence in the United States. I presented recent local news reports from Charlotte (all of the reports were, I believe, from within about a week or two of each other) about gun violence and its victims. I then led a discussion on gun control in the context of the United States Constitution and the Second Amendment. The second was on the role of patriotism in building a national identity and community, especially in a nation as large and vast as the United States. This discussion used the Pledge of Allegiance—an oath which has few, if any, parallels around the world—as a starting point. I wanted the presentation to be as multimedia as possible, so a number of video and audio clips are used throughout: 3:31 Excerpt of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, 1963 5:44 Charlotte Chamber promotional video, 2004 12:48 Charlotte Regional Partnership promotional video, 2004 13:30 Pioneers and Progress: A Brief History of Salt Lake City, 2001 19:10 Symbols in the City: The Salt Lake Temple, 2001 21:43 News 14 Carolina reports on gun violence in Charlotte, 2005 Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen, The Netherlands International Political Economy (fall 2005) 28 September 2005

            The first of four critically acclaimed films by Drew Associates focusing on President John F. Kennedy, this breakthrough documentary travels along with the then-senator as he campaigns against Hubert Humphrey for the 1960 Democratic presidential nomination. Allowing viewers to experience the event along with the Kennedys, the Drew film captures JFK's rational, charismatic presence, the frenzied urban crowds, Jacqueline Kennedy's calm radiance and Humphrey's populist appeal. Revealing the personalities and politics of the campaign trail as they had never been seen before, "Primary" offers a compelling glimpse into the early career of one of the world's most captivating leaders. The film is considered the founding documentary of American cinema verite, the first non-fiction film in which a sync-sound camera moves with a character through life events. Robert Drew, who founded Drew Associates in 1960, led a team of now-legendary documentary filmmakers, including Richard Leacock, D.A. Pennebaker, and Albert Maysles, in producing this classic. The film won numerous awards in 1961, including the Blue Ribbon at the American Film Festival, the Flaherty Award for Best Documentary, and Outstanding Film at the London Film Festival.

The Apollo Years reviews the Apollo Program Missions 1 through 17. This is an historical document and documentary. Using only archival film and the authentic communications between the Apollo capsules and Mission Control. There is no narration; there is some music by the Cud Chewing Cows (the Band) http://www.cudchewingcows.com , no fancy Graphics, nothing but what happened, what was said, when and by whom. Duration: 139 minutes Featuring: -All the Apollo Astronauts, All the Apollo Missions -President Kennedy, President Johnson and President Nixon -And a celebratory performance by Frank Sinatra -Original Music by Cud Chewing Cows "I found it very interesting in that there is no narration. Good film sequences… great reminders of the people and things that led to the first landing. Good job." - Russell L. "Rusty" Schweickart, Apollo 9 Astronaut "Letting the people, events, and images speak for themselves brings an unmatched authenticity to this remarkable chapter in human exploration. Very well done." -Neil deGrasse Tyson, Astrophysicist and Frederick P. Rose Director, Hayden Planetarium, American Museum of Natural History, New York City "For those of us who witnessed the Apollo program it brings back memories and reminds us how things have changed (some unrelated to the main theme, like flight controlers sitting at their duty stations smoking!). For younger viewers it will serve as a good entrée for discovering and understanding the early space program." - Alan W. Harris, Space scientist with North American Rockwell (builder of the Command Module) during the time of Apollo, later with Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) “The two-plus-hour The Apollo Years (produced to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the 1969 lunar landing) begins with the doomed Apollo 1 flight in 1967, in which all members of the three-man crew are killed during a training exercise. Following this tragedy, we see the unmanned Apollo missions 2 through 6. The remainder of the film features manned missions 7 through 17 (1972). The Apollo 11 moon landing is undoubtedly considered the program's greatest accomplishment. Each segment introduces the astronauts involved and illustrates the subtle changes not only in equipment and technology but also in mission control procedures. Unfortunately, this unnarrated visual history is not of the quality viewers accept as standard from PBS and NOVA productions. The footage here is real and is sometimes distorted, gray, and grainy. The footage following Apollo 11 is clearer, indicating the overall improvement in film technology and technique. Will viewers want to wade through this lengthy historical archive of the space program? A shorter version may grasp a larger audience; still, this tribute to our space pioneers is recommended for most libraries.” - LaRoi Lawton, Bronx Community Coll. LRC, CUNY for The Library Journal.
