The river enters the Atlantic Ocean in a broad estuary about 240 kilometres (150 mi) wide. The Amazon River is located in South America. It runs through Guyana, Ecuador, Venezuela, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia and Peru. The length of the Amazon River is approximately 6400 kilometres (4000 miles). During the wet season, the Amazon River can reach over 190 kilometres (120 miles) in width. There are no bridges that cross the Amazon, mostly because there is no need, the majority of the Amazon River runs through rainforests rather than roads or cities. The largest city along the Amazon River is Manaus. Located in Brazil it is home to over 1.7 million people. There are over 3000 known species of fish that live in the Amazon River, with more constantly being discovered. Anacondas lurk in the shallow waters of the Amazon Basin, they are one of the largest snakes in the world and occasionally attack larger animals such as goats that get to close the water. The Amazon River is also home to the piranha, a meat eating type of fish! Being carnivores, piranhas are known to attack in groups, preying on livestock that strays into the water and possibly appearing in one or two of your own nightmares!

        • Harvest


          from Creative Dynamics Studio / Added

          These scenes were recorded in the Fall of 2010 and 2011 in Central Illinois. While some think that these are visual pollution, I was trying to capture the graceful beauty as they slowly turn. I have heard that there are complaints about the noise they make, but I left in the nat sound and I don't think it is ever louder than the music. The wind noise was louder than any of these machines, at least these which are located in central Illinois just south of I-88 in the DeKalb area. This video was shot and edited by Bill Coons at Creative Dynamics Studio. Music licensed through the DeWolfe Music Library. Shot with a Sony PDW-350-HD XDCAM CineAlta camcorder and the Canon stock zoom lens. This was our first HD camera, and although you have to work with it to achieve the best image look, I really miss the disc-based recording format. We still use that camera for meeting v-doc; it sure beats any other medium (other than tape) for acquisition storage after the event.

                  Change. How can we, the people, enforce our will against an entrenched corporate influenced power structure? Is the democratic political system the way to do it? Democracy is a term used to describe a more varied range of governmental systems than it's simple definition could lead one to believe. At it's heart a basic fairness is what I hope to find. Coming from a homestead in northern Canada and following an education in liberal Canadian universities I moved to Germany where I have lived for several years. Over the years I have followed the struggle in Canada to balance environmental protection with the economic gain of natural resource extraction. Mainly it seems to me to be a story of the failure to protect the environment, with a few major exceptional victories along the way. This film is my attempt to find out if the environmental cause has any hope of success within the political system as it stands.

                      If sustainability is a journey, Frei Brothers Reserve has covered quite a bit of ground over the past year, expanding its sustainability focus from what’s in the bottle to the bottle itself. New earth-friendly packaging is showing up in stores now, just as the winery releases its first-ever “Earth Day Report.” The report shares how far Frei Brothers has come — and how far it wants to go — in its pursuit of “preserving natural resources without compromising the integrity of the wine.” The line-up of eco-upgrades for the brand includes bottles that use less glass, corks that use more of the tree, and capsules and labels that create less waste.
