      • Irv Rosenfeld, Federal Marijuana Patient (Rick Ray)


        from Rick Ray Added 414 3 3

        This is a segment from a feature film I am currently working on called "Lynching Charlie Lynch" about the controversies surrounding medical marijuana and Federal marijuana policy in the United States. Irv Rosenfeld is one of only 4 surviving patients who sued the Federal Government in the 1980's for access to medicinal marijuana. Once each month Irv receives a tin from the Federal Government filled with up to 300 marijuana cigarettes - for free, from Uncle Sam on taxpayers dollars! Crazy, you say? Take a look at the rough cut of the video and tell me what you think.... Note, the audio is still a temp track and some of the cutting is still rough, but I am eager for feedback. So please, what do you think? The feature film is coming which explores much more than this.

            • Water Lives...


              from Freshwater Blog Added 4,999 26 3

              Released on 19th March 2012 Water lives… Look beneath the surface: our rivers and lakes support an amazing diversity of life, from tiny diatoms all the way up to us humans These beautiful, complex webs of freshwater life often go unseen, and their importance un-noticed However, this remarkable diversity of freshwater life is vital in supporting our everyday lives Are we capable of creating policies to manage water not only as a resource for humanity, but also as a medium for life? BioFresh is a European Union project which is putting together the scattered pieces of information about life in our rivers and lakes, to better understand, manage and protect our freshwaters for generations to come. http://www.freshwaterbiodiversity.eu http://www.biofreshblog.com biofresh@ouce.ox.ac.uk "Water Lives..." is a science communication animation designed to draw attention to the important (yet largely invisible) life that underpins and sustains our freshwater ecosystems. Produced by Paul Jepson and Rob St.John at the Oxford University School of Geography and the Environment for BioFresh - a European Union project on freshwater biodiversity - the animation brings artists and scientists together to collaborate and communicate the concept that freshwater is more than an inert resource: instead a living, dynamic system inhabited by beautiful, important organisms largely unseen by the naked eye. "Water Lives..." invites viewers to view our rivers and lakes in new ways, value the services they provide and discuss how they should be managed. The curious and otherworldly physical form of freshwater organisms such as diatoms provides abundant artistic inspiration. "Water Lives..." is a six minute piece animated by Scottish artist Adam Proctor. It is sound-tracked by a specially composed piece of music by Tommy Perman from Scottish, BAFTA award winning arts collective FOUND which samples a series of haiku about freshwater ecosystems written by environmental poet John Barlow. The content of both the animation and haiku was influenced by close consultation with BioFresh freshwater scientists Rick Battarbee from University College London and Ana Filipa Filipe from the University of Barcelona, alongside Alistair Seddon from the University of Oxford Zoology department.

                • 2013/05 Pam Goldsmith-Jones - On the environment, women in politics, leadership, and the advantages of backwards thinking.


                  from CreativeMornings/Vancouver Added 1,788 3 3

                  May's global CreativeMornings theme was 'Backwards' and Vancouver was fortunate to host former West Van Mayor Pamela Goldsmith-Jones as our presenter. As usual, this event could not have been possible without our presenting sponsor R&M Trade Laminating and the support of our ongoing support partners The Province of BC, GDC/BC, Dodson Conference Centre, Ethical Bean Coffee, and Fusion Cine. Pam is not a creative professional per se, but is highly regarded as an effective, creative person. As the former Mayor of West Vancouver she stuck with multiple changes needed to transform West Van from safe to a sense of enterprise and engagement. She’s an innovator when it comes to community participation (new working groups instead of advisory committees) and corporate governance (creating a non-profit to manage the award winning community centre/arm’s length management and fundraising for the 2010 Olympics, Venue City). She protested the destruction of Eagle Ridge Bluffs in 2005 (nude calendar girl), banned the use of cosmetic pesticides in WV a decade ago, supported significant restorative work on the foreshore/intertidal zone (UN Global Green City Award). She took on tough jobs as Vice Chair of Translink, pitching the 2 cents/litre increase in gas taxes, as Vice Chair of Metro’s Waste Committee, promoting less solid waste, and as West Van Police Board Chair through a massive multi-year corporate culture change. Pam homeschooled her 3 children for 6 years, has a Masters degree in local government, and is now doing her MBA at SFU, majoring in Aboriginal Business and Leadership. She has her own consulting company helping business work with public policy. Douglas Coupland says “She’s incredibly down to earth and wildly generous with her time and spirit…” (Vancouver Magazine, June 2011). A few notable comments (paraphrased) by Pamela: "I define creativity by saying things out loud. There’s something powerful about putting ideas into words. It helps me to focus my thinking before acting, and to reach out for help." "I find creative inspiration by reading, other people’s logic and body language, and I share." "One creative advice or tip you wish you’d known as a young person is don’t think of it as worrying, think of it as hatching a new idea." "I love to see young aboriginal leaders in the arts, media, business, politics speak at CMVan." "My biggest Aha! moments come by realizing I can only succeed if others are too. Smiling, jokes at your own expense, delegating really good jobs, sharing contacts, reaching out to opponents – these all work. Don’t sell anyone out – this does not work. Keep space open." "The best surprise in life was taking the kids out of school for 6 weeks, that turned into 6 years." "Whatever you think, think the opposite!" "In politics, we are not our best selves behind closed doors." "Why do we feel like we don't want to connect when it's our every impulse." "A true test of leadership is what continues after you leave office." "Politicians, share your authority. If you think the power of your office is all for you, you're destined to fail." "Being yourself is balance." "Replace the fear of the known with curiosity." "Be yourself, and don't make assumptions." "The system conditions people. Be willing to break rank. You get the most interesting results when you break rank." CMVan's June 7th, 2013 event theme will be “Food” featuring the founders and directors of Fresh Roots Urban Farm Society, Ilana Labow and Marc Schutzbank, with the support of our presenting sponsor Vancity. Ticket registration will begin at 11am on Monday, April 29th at creativemorningsvancouver.eventbrite.com. The Vancouver chapter of CreativeMornings is run by Mark Busse (@MarkBusse) and his dedicated team of volunteers.
