All great paintings start with excellent drawings. Learn integral aspects of drawing from a renowned contemporary master, Burton Silverman, and improve your drawing skills to create more realistic paintings. This instructional drawing DVD explores drawing in-depth, uncovering secrets and providing sound instruction to make better drawings. 


In order to make great paintings and art, you must start with an exceptional drawing, and this DVD is the perfect way to improve your skills. Learn how to create more accurate drawings and bring portraits, figure paintings, and fine art drawings to life. 

Lead by Burton Silverman, a contemporary master who taught drawing for 45 years, this DVD leads you through the fine points of figurative drawing. Silverman shows you how to use gesture drawing, starting from the outside and working inward, carving out highlights, shading, and adding details until a live figure is etched onto the canvas.

A very experienced and highly accomplished artist, let his unique insights and perspective enrich your own talents and skill, so you produce clearer, more lifelike images.

Burton Silverman is a highly prolific artist. His work appears in major magazines like Time, Newsweek, The New Yorker, and on many postage stamps. Awarded the Geismann Memorial Invitational Retrospective Exhibition, his work appears in many exhibits around the country, and today he is considered one of the most important realists.

Silverman uses a unique technique to "sculpt" his pictures on the paper, using bright highlights, and carving deep shadows to support his drawings. The result: a deep, moving portrait capturing the essence of a figure. 

In this instructional video Silverman creates two separate figure drawings revealing secrets that bring a page to life. Through his instruction you will improve your own artwork and skills. Your paintings will feel more realistic because the foundation of the painting, the drawing beneath them, is stronger.

"Easel – Every Committed Painter Should Own One"

Owning a well-built easel made out of tough materials is one of the best painting tools a committed artist or hobbyist must have. This short article provides the reasons why an easel is just as valuable to an artist today, as it was during the era of Michelangelo and Van Gogh.

An easel provides the painter with the right physical perspective of viewing the canvas at the angle and height at which it will eventually be hung. By placing the canvas on the easel, the painter is free to step back and gain a better perspective of the project, allowing the artist to correct any mistakes before they are made, so as to avoid possibly ruining the painting.

An easel also displays the painter’s masterpiece to the best advantage to onlookers and guests in the studio.

An easel is also a great defensive mechanism for your work shop. An easel is a protective area for the unfinished canvas.

There are only two steps in selecting an easel. Simply evaluate where and how you plan to use the easel.

Do you prefer to paint only in the studio? Then consider investing in a studio easel. Most of these are bulky, sturdy contraptions, but not very portable.

On the other hand, if you like the idea of painting whenever the mood hits, choose the versatile French easel. This kind of easel was constructed to be extremely portable. It is so portable, it can even be folded up for quick transportation. In the folded-up position it doubles up as a sketch box to allow you to carry your art supplies in.

Once you have made the decision on where and how you will use the easel, all you really need to do is pick the one that meets your needs and budget. Either way you look at it, an easel should be as necessary to your artistic workplace as the paint on your desk or the ink in your pens.

Oil paints are an asset to any artist and offer a number of benefits such as:

Quality and Appearance

Oil paints are one of the most versatile forms of paint. The colors are rich and unmatched by many other materials. Artists are able to change thickness and glossiness by adding solvents such as white spirit, turpentine and varnish.

Longevity and Durability

Oil paints are well known for being extremely durable and retaining their color for long periods of time. Because of its’ reliability and brilliant colors, oil paint is commonly used on the interiors and exteriors of both wooden and metal buildings and structures. 

A Broad Color Spectrum

Artists’ Oil Colors utilize the purest pigments to create their colors. The numerous single pigment colors can be mixed and blended together to create a spectrum of over one hundred different shades.

Alizarin Crimson is a synthetic form of the pigment found in the roots of the common Madder (or Rubia Tinctorum) plant. Historically, madder was used as a red dye by the ancient Egyptians, and fabric containing the dye was found in King Tutankhamen's tomb. In more recent times, most madder was grown in Holland until the production of synthetic alizarin (one of the compounds extracted from the madder root) caused the crash of the commercial madder growing industry in 1868. The synthetic variant is preferred to the organic variant, which is still grown and used as a dye, since the organic variant tends to fade. Alizarin Crimson is known for its cool, red, almost purple hue. It maintains its vibrancy even when mixed with other colors.

There was a time when the art of painting and the art of sculpting were not separated.  Take for example the efforts of Michelangelo over so many years to paint the Sistine Chapel.  He did not want to do this, but he was challenged to show his superior skills as an artist, to the Pope Sixtus IV, because he wanted to make his masterpieces in sculpture.

The history of bronze is significant as there is the Bronze Age.  Bronze is made from a mixture of cooper with other metals like tin or zinc.  The distinctive color comes from mixing metals to make stronger implements of war.  Once steel was discovered, bronze became a more peaceful metal.  No longer the basis for warring materials, it became available to artists to make statues of extraordinary beauty.  Now bronze is a standard color of expression for any artists' pallette.

It is this unique reflectance property that produces the soft sheen inherent to metallic paints. It’s often used mixed with other colors (carefully — mixed with certain colors, it can turn muddy) or thinned to produce a sparkling glaze.

Ultramarine was, historically, famous for being the most expensive pigment, costing even more than gold during the Renaissance. Ultramarine was created by using crushed lapis lazuli (a purple and blue semi-precious gemstone). The pigment's name ultrmaranus means "from beyond the sea," and was adopted because the pigment had to be imported to Europe from Asia, where it was first used in Afghan temples the 6th century. The pigment was popular in Renaissance art, and was often used to depict the robes of the virgin Mary. The artist Vermeer is known for his lavish use of natural ultramarine. A synthetic form of ultramarine was discovered in 1828, and the natural form made from crushed lapis lazuli became obsolete. French Ultramarine is a very dark, brilliant blue. Often, it is the one of the darkest and most vivid pigments on an artist's pallet.

Most think of gold as a metallic and sparkling yellow-bronze color. This artists' oil represents a more relaxed and realistic approach to the color gold. As found in nature, gold deposits have a much milder color than you'd expect. This paint captures that color minus the sparkling sheen.

This gold paint has a natural hue, recalling a soft and warm yellow wood or pale flesh. Think of an expanse of sand glowing under a midday sun or the well-groomed coat of a yellow labrador retriever. The light shade makes it an ideal highlight for darker browns or oranges, as well.

Use gold to trim the garments of royals or the edge of fine dinnerware in your paintings of still life. This gold can give a richness to any painting, whether it's full of opulent glamour or understated natural beauty.

Indigo historically came from the plant “Indigofera tinctoria.” Its name became the root of the word “dye” in Greek, which is “indikon” and in Latin “indicum.”  The reason the color indigo is so associated with the processing of dyeing fabric is the color was so popular in India and became fashionable in Europe.

A discovery occurred during the 1600’s. Glass prisms separated invisible light into colors of the rainbow.  Indigo, chosen by Isaac Newton, became one of the seven colors of the visible spectrum of light. 

The colors of the rainbow or the spectrum as determined by Newton were:

Besides the primary colors of red, green, and blue, the colors of the rainbow (which are the same as those shown by light passing through a prism) have great significance.  In modern times, synthetic dyes make the color of indigo.  Nevertheless, indigo still retains its fascination and historical significance.

Professional art supplies manufacturer Winsor & Newton delivers again on the oil paint front. This oil paint in a yellow ochre tint is warm and rich, and it holds texture well. The yellow ochre shade was initially developed from naturally occurring iron oxides, and it is in fact one of the oldest, most popular colors used by oil artists. This paint comes as a deep, golden yellow, but it can also be diluted and lightened to form a brighter, dry straw yellow that is still just as inviting. And of course, it can also be easily blended with other Winsor & Newton oils to form different lasting pigments.

Yellow ochre is a natural pigment containing silica, clay and a mineral (iron-oxyhydroxide) known as goethite. It belongs to a family of colors known as an "earth pigments," (along with umber and sienna) and is one of the original pigments used by humans in cave paintings. The famous horse in the cave in Lascaux, France was painted with yellow ochre. The Egyptians also used yellow ochre extensively in tomb painting, often to depict the faces of women. Yellow ochre can even be seen in frescoes on the walls of Pompeii. Yellow ochre is an earthy yellow with hints of brown, but the hue of natural yellow ochre varies. Today some of the best natural ochre is mined in Cyprus. Synthetic yellow ochre has been produced since the 1920s and is known as mars yellow.

The yellow ochre is considered a medium to slow drying paint that takes five or more days to dry after it is applied.

Use this semi-transparent oil to add a warm, golden or light yellow to any paint project.||||||||http://www.madisonartshop.com/yellochre744.html||||||||0||||||||||New||||||||||Winsor & Newton||~~minimum-quantity~~1~~|^^|yellochrepale746||item.||custom-page-v3-enh||||||||||1.25 oz.

Burnt Sienna is the heated form of Raw Sienna, an earth pigment (containing iron oxide and manganese oxide) used since man first started creating art. Brown colors have come in and out of fashion through the ages, and were often set aside in the medieval era in favor of brighter colors. Browns became important again during the Renaissance period as artists needed it to show gradation from dark to light, and Rembrandt was particularly fond of using all of the earth pigments, Sienna included. Although Sienna (named for Siena, Italy) was available in the 18th and 19th centuries, it was considered fashionable to use "mommia," a pigment created from exhumed Egyptian mummies, rather than Sienna. Although synthetic variants of Sienna are available, Sienna is still mined in Sicily and Sardinia. Burnt Sienna is an intense, deep red-brown color.

Cobalt blue has a long and illustrious history. It is a very stable color (an aluminum-oxide, or cobalt aluminate) that was used by the Chinese as a coloring agent in their blue and white porcelain as early as the 8th century. It was discovered in its pure form in Europe in 1802 and was very popular as a substitute for the prohibitively expensive ultramarine pigment. It's often used to tint glass because of its ability to almost completely filter out yellow. Maxfield Parrish was famous for his use of cobalt blue, to the point that the color is sometimes known as Parrish blue. Today most cobalt blue comes from Norway or Germany, which is famous for its blaufarbenwerke (or blue color works) in the mountains of Saxony.

Flake White is a traditionally lead based based paint that is one of the oldest synthetic pigments. It was used by the ancient Egyptians, the ancient Chinese, and famously, by the ancient Athenians in their cosmetics. In fact, it was one of the only whites available until the 19th century (it was often used as a base coat or canvas primer) when its production and sale were severely limited due to its toxicity. Even with its scarcity, flake white is still in high demand. It has superb mixing qualities, pure whiteness and durability. Conservationists note that paintings with a using flake withstand time better than those without. Flake white also has the fastest drying time of all the whites, making it a good choice for certain techniques that require fast drying paints.

W&N Artists' Oil Colors Foundation White #261||WN1-25-261||||||10.450 ||6.270 ||||||||||1||1||0||0||||||Use our foundation white for its quick-drying properties that is especially useful for priming and underpainting.||

Because of its short drying time, foundation white is ideal for underpainting because it can be used successfully in painting in layers without enduring long dry times. Its characteristics lend itself well in the preparation of the canvas by providing a robust foundation for the first few layers. This heavier foundation helps prevent cracks and allows for better adhesion of subsequent layers of paint. In addition, this allows for building structure to aid in crafting one-of-a-kind color combinations and effects.   

With lead white as the primary pigment, lead, zinc oxide, linseed and sand oil make up the ingredients for this popular choice among professionals and hobbyists alike. The flexibility, strength and quick-drying attributes make this a popular choice for the best results in the shortest time possible.

The beauty of underpainting using foundation white in the beginning is made more obvious by the color blending effects possible when painting in layers. The layers of paint won’t interfere with each other and will produce the desired effects that underpainting, when performed properly, can yield.

A coalminer's daughter sees her daddy go down into the mines every day.  She is so happy to see his soot-covered face come home safely each night.  That soot is the color of lamp black. The love of this color comes from the deep meaning of its name.

Lamp black is the color made from the incomplete burning of kerosene, oil, coal-tar, fat, and oils. It is the color of the soot made on a wall near an old-fashion oil lamp.  Until electricity was available this was the main source of light.

Think about how it was for an artist in the pioneer days of America, such as Grandma Moses working late into the night on a painting, which has captured her heart.  She would be sitting in front of a fireplace, painting by the light of a kerosene lantern.  Or maybe she would be sitting in her rocking chair reading by the same light.  She would know the color of lamp black very well.

Mauve is a synthetic pigment that was first discovered by accident in 1856. William Henry Perkin was looking for a synthetic version of quinine when he noticed that the residue produced a stable, semi-permanent purple dye. At the time, purple dye was created by using glandular mucus produced by a type of mollusk and was quite expensive. The fact that mauve could be mass produced in an economical way meant that it quickly surpassed other purples in use. The color became so popular amongst the upper classes in Europe and America (it was a favorite of Queen Victoria and the Empress Eugenie) that the 1890s are known as the "Mauve Decade." Today the color mauve is a pale purple with some grayish hues, and it is often used in stage decorating to depict sunsets.

Rose madder has a fantastic and long record of use. Rose madder has been used by the very top of ancient Egyptian nobility, including Pharaoh Tutankhamun, for a variety of reasons. The pink shade produced has an excellent light fastness. Rose madder is also considered a transparent, non-staining shade which makes blending on the canvas much easier. This combination of features made rose madder the principal red color until 1868 when synthetic reds began to saturate the market.

This pink product can easily be enhanced through several coats. This paint's first coat starts with a light and breezy pink shade. However, through a repetition of coats, passion and nobility can be represented with darker shades of red. This flexibility allows an artist to reflect the exact shade of red they desire.

Viridian Green (also known as Guignet's Green) is an inorganic pigment made from hydrated chromium oxide. The process by which it was created was initially kept secret, but it was eventually patented in 1859. Viridian quickly became popular due to its deep color, stability, permanence, and non-toxicity. Viridian Green is a very deep, cool, blue green that can be too intense for many artists. However, it is a very popular color for mixing. Mixing Viridian with earth tones like yellow ochre can create unique, subtle, warm organic greens. Viridian can also be mixed with Alizarin for dark grey hues, and violets for shades of blue-black. The lack of yellow in Viridian makes it ideal for mixing muted gray greens, which are especially appropriate when painting the American Southwest.

    In the early 20th century German immigrant Carl Laemmle became a pioneer in the the birth of the film industry as we know it today. This dvd (chock full of rarely seen archival footage) shows us his growth into a Hollywood kingmaker. He began his work with film as a distributor on the east coast. This led to battles with Thomas Edison over patents. Edison was very diligent about protecting his inventions. A legal case ensued (secret)- Laemmle eventually won!

    He then decides to leave Chicago to open shop in the then rural, Hollywood land, in the state of California. He dreams were large and his ambition ample!

    The DVD chronicles his work with some famous names in early Hollywood, that film aficionado's will recognize, including Erich von Stroheim and Mary Pickford. He eventually founded what became the world famous- Universal Studios. It was originally called the Universal Film Manufacturing Company and was the biggest film studio in it's day.

    Some of the legendary productions Carl Laemmle had a hand in are:
    He received the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1930 for the classic, All Quiet on the Western Front. HIs studio, Universal, produced the very first horror movie that was a talkie- the original "Dracula," with Bella Lugosi at the helm. The DVD features among others, his relative- Carla Laemmle; Sarah Karloff and Bela Lugosi Jr. These children of renowned horror genre actors, Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi Sr., shed light on information only they would have.
    Also included: actor John Malkovich and famed director Peter Bogdanovich.

    BEST 16" Medium Duty Stretcher Bars are capable of enduring a staple gun and designed to create a consistent ½” space between the canvas and bar to prevent “ghosting" on the canvas. Additionally, the rounded back provides a natural curved surface to allow for smooth and unobstructed movement of the canvas while tightening. This is a big advantage compared to straight edged stretchers that create too much friction as the canvas is tightened.

    This enhanced DVD was once an NBC documentary that addresses the poverty, economic collapse and civil wars associated with nations gaining their independence. Many times, there is an epic leadership void which leads to fragmentation among the citizens. This is exactly what happened to Congo in 1960, after winning independence from Belgium.

    Unrest between native Africans and Belgium descendants turned to violence less than one week after the country was declared independent. This led to the Stanleyville Massacre where dozens of European and American hostages were murdered. The unrest in the Congo led to foreign intervention as the US and Soviet Unions backed different factions. The cold war tension, racial conflict and struggling government are common issues in developing nations. This DVD shows the world how independent countries still need assistance to establish a working infrastructure. A similar situation occurred in Haiti when their country gained independence from France. Ignorance breeds apathy, but this film sheds a much needed light on a global problem.

    While we are inundated with art day-in and day-out, there are a few special pieces that have transcended time and culture and have slated their place in art history. Below is a gallery of 20 of the most famous paintings of all time - recognizable pieces from the ages that will never be forgotten.

    1. The Mona Lisa Any list of Most Famous Paintings would be incomplete without the mention of the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci. This infamous portrait of Lisa del Giocondo was completed some time between 1503-1519 and currently on display at the Musee du Louvre in Paris.

    2. Starry Night Vincent van Gogh has painted countless well-known pieces; however, his painting Starry Night is widely considered to be his magnum opus. Painted in 1889, the piece was done from memory and whimsically depicts the view from his room at the sanitarium he resided in at the time.

    3. The Scream Using oil and pastel on cardboard, Edvard Munch painted his most famous piece, The Scream, circa 1893. Featuring a ghoulish figure that looks like the host from Tales from the Crypt, the backdrop of this expressionist painting is said to be Oslo, Norway.

    IMG SOURCE: Edvard Munch

    4. Guernica Inspired by the bombing of Guernica, Spain, during the Spanish Civil War, Pablo Picasso completed this most famous piece, Guernica, in 1937. This piece was originally commissioned by the Spanish government and intended to depict the suffering of war and ultimately stand as symbol for peace.

    5. The Persistence of Memory Painted in 1931 by yet another Spanish artist, Salvador Dali's The Persistance of Memory is one of the most recognizable and individual pieces in art history. Depicting a dismal shoreline draped with melting clocks, it is thought that Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity inspired this bizarre piece.

    6. Three Musicians At first glance it might look like a collage but Pablo Picasso's famous painting, Three Musicians is actually an oil painting. Completed in 1921, he painted two very similar paintings that are mutually referred to as Three Musicians and can be found in the New York MoMA and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

    7. A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte Using the unique technique of pointillism, creating a complete image that is made up of only distinct individual dots, the French painter Georges Seurat brings us his most famous piece A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.

    8. Girl with a Pearl Earring Considered by some to be the "Mona Lisa of the North," this enchanting painting by the Dutch artist, Johannes Vermeer, features exactly what the title infers - a Girl with a Peal Earring. Completed circa 1665, this piece can now be found in the Mauritshuis Gallery in the Hague.

    9. Whistler's Mother Whistler's Mother is the truncated name for James McNeill Whistler's very famous portrait originally known as Arrangement in Grey and Black: The Artist's Mother. Painted in 1871, it's one of the few American pieces on this list - although it is owned by a Parisian museum and therefore rarely seen in the states.

    10. Portrait de L'artiste Sans Barbe Although the title isn't very creative, Vincent van Gogh's Self-Portrait without Beard is certainly one of the most notable paintings of all time. While Van Gogh has painted many portraits before, this is the most notable because it's one of the few that depicts him without a beard. Additionally, having sold for $71.5 million in 1998, it is one of the most expensive paintings ever sold.

    IMG SOURCE: Most Expensive Things

    11. The Night Watch In its native Dutch tongue, De Nachtwacht is most popularly referred to in modern culture as The Night Watch. Using oil on canvas, Rembrandt (van Rijn) was commissioned by a militia captain and his 17 militia guards in 1642 to paint their company, in an effort to show off for the French Queen that would be visiting.

    IMG SOURCE: Rijks Museum

    12. The Kiss Easily touted as Gustav Klimt's most famous painting, The Kiss is a realistic yet geometric depiction of a kissing couple, completed in 1908 in Vienna, Austria. What makes this piece different than the other oil paintings on the list is that it also incorporates gold leaf on canvas (in addition to oils).

    IMG SOURCE: Artchive

    13. Water Lilies French painter Claude Monet painted a series of 250 pieces known as Water Lilies between 1840 and 1926 - it's exactly what it sounds like, 250 paintings depicting a water lily pond from his backyard. While this might not be one individual painting, considering the collection is spread amongst the most renowned galleries of the world, the series is a deserving installment on this list.

    IMG SOURCE: Ibiblio

    14. The Flower Carrier Known in its native tongue as "Cargador de Flores," The Flower Carrier was painted by Diego Rivera in 1935. Widely considered to be the greatest Mexican painter of the twentieth century, Rivera was known for his simple paintings dominated by their bright colors and The Flower Carrier is no exception.

    15. American Gothic Marking the list as another iconic piece in American art, American Gothic, painted by Grant Wood in 1930 is a dry depiction of a farmer and his Plain-Jane daughter - The Great Depression personified.

    16. Cafe Terrace at Night Never one for flashy titles, Cafe Terrace at Night (1888) by the ever-prolific Vincent Van Gogh, is one of the most individual depictions of such a mundane setting. Though Van Gogh never signed this piece, he references his famous Cafe masterpiece in many personal documents.

    IMG SOURCE: Art Gallery 2000

    17. The Son of Man The most current piece of all on this list, painted in 1964, is Rene Magrittees The Son of Man. Although it is a self-portrait, his face is largely covered by a floating green apple and contributes to his series of paintings known as the The Great War on Facades.

    IMG SOURCE: Painting Here

    18. No. 5, 1948 Another of the more current pieces, painted by Jackson Pollock in 1948, the impersonally titled No. 5, 1948, though chaotic, is a signature piece of art nonetheless and a revealing insight to the turmoil that was swirling within Pollock.

    19. Bal du moulin de la Galette While the imagery in this painting might not be the most immediately recognizable, having sold for $78.1 million (adjusted price of $127.4 million), French artist Pierre-Auguste Renoires Bal du Moulin de la Galette is one of the most expensive paintings of all time and therefore, one of the most famous.

    20. Dogs Playing Poker Commissioned by Brown & Begelow Cigars in 1903, American painter C.M. Coolidge painted 16 unforgettable images of Dogs Playing Poker for the brand. Spoofed many times in greeting cards and in popular culture, this series of dogs playing cards around a table is widely recognizable and truly iconic.

    The BEST Medium-Duty Stretcher Bar - 20" is a bar you will love, since getting a smoothly stretched canvas is an important first step to ensuring a great work of art. It is made of white pine that is kiln dried for increased straightness as well as durability. 


    Using the BEST Medium-Duty Stretcher Bar - 20" gives the artist a smoothly stretched canvas that is free of ghost impressions. This is accomplished by the back edge which is rounded. It helps to reduce friction, allowing the canvas to remain 1/2 inch from the stretcher bar itself. Designed of knot free white pine that has been kiln dried, this stretcher bar is 1 1/2" high and 1 1/4" deep. The 20 inch length gives the discerning artist plenty of room to work while also allowing for easy portability between home and the studio.

Interestingly, studies have shown that the age of gender of children makes a difference in how they react to guns. Hidden cameras reveal that young boys are more likely to touch guns when their parents aren't around, with more than half of the boys in this report not being able to resist the temptation. Viewers will see a deputy sheriff and his wife talk about the day their young son accidentally killed himself with a loaded gun they kept in their home. Today, that family does everything they can to help prevent this type of tragedy from happening to anyone else. No matter if you're pro-guns or anti-guns, 20/20: Young Guns—A Diane Sawyer Special sheds some real light on this hotly-debated topic of gun safety and children in our world today.

This is not such an easy thing to achieve.

    Look at the reality of the challenge. There are only thirty to a maximum sixty seconds to make an impact, which has become increasingly difficult in the age of media over-saturation. The Clio awards seek to find the advertisements that really work and those advertisements are extremely special.

    Now that we understand how difficult this challenge is, who won for the year of 2013?

    DDB, which is an agency based in New York, created a campaign called Snowplow for Volkswagen and for this, they received the award for 2013.

    The Axe brand received some kudos from the advertisement of Brainy Girl, which got a gold campaign award in 2013. To top this off, the same campaign from Bartle for the Axe brand, won another Clio award for a Sporty Girl advertisement. High Maintenance also was given the gold award.

    McCann Erickson jumped in with the Dumb Ways to Die commercial for Metro Trains they produced for public transit in Melbourne, Australia.

    Cartier stepped up with a Marcel advertisement by L’Odyssée that won a gold award. Entries came from all the top agencies, which included, BBDO, JWT, DDB, Bartle, and McCann Erickson.

    By Greg Albert

    In my opinion, a student's attitude is the most important factor contributing to a successful experience in a life-drawing class (or any class for that matter). Approach the class with the goal to learn as much as you can and don't compare your progress to that of other students, as doing so may either discourage you or falsely inflate your ego. Your goal in drawing class should be to derive the maximum benefit from your investment of time, money and energy.

  • Although you don't need to do anything to get ready for a drawing class—except acquire the needed supplies and equipment—a great way to prepare yourself is to read a good magazine on art technique or even browse through a few books on figure drawing from your local bookstore or library.

  • Don't skip any class sessions if you can avoid it. Regular attendance develops consistency and discipline and honors your teacher and classmates—they're learning from you, too.

  • Practice between classes, even for only 10 minutes. Keep sketchbooks handy, and when you have a spare moment make little sketches of people from memory, no matter how crude the results may seem. By the time you fill one sketchbook, you'll see an encouraging improvement. You'll be amazed at how much "talent" regular practice will reveal.

    For more tips from Greg Albert on using life-drawing classes to supercharge your skills, see "Group Therapy" in the July 2005 issue of Drawing Board magazine. In this issue you’ll also discover how to tap into your creativity, learn all about drawing tools and how to use them, and work with pen and ink.||||||||http://www.madisonartshop.com/sketching.html||||||||0||||||||||New||||||||||||~~minimum-quantity~~1~~|^^|bemestbar30||item.||custom-page-v3-enh||mediumdutybars||https://sep.turbifycdn.com/ay/madisonartshop/30-best-medium-duty-stretcher-bar-890115-5.png||||||30" BEST Medium-Duty Stretcher Bar #890115||JR890115||art-gifts > beginner-artist > canvaspanels > canvases > licaro > mediumdutybars||||9.550 ||4.990 ||||||||||1||1||1||0||||||

    Get a taut even canvas every time with BEST Medium-duty stretcher bars!


    Best selects only high quality white pine to make this medium-duty 30-inch stretcher bar. Each piece is inspected for knots, then dried in a kiln before being splice-bonded to form a straight bar that resists warping. The curve of its back edge is fashioned to keep the canvas edge at a half inch distance. So by using Best stretcher bars to build a frame an artist gets a taut, friction free canvas with a smooth painting surface and none of the ghost impressions that can show up on an otherwise perfect painting.

    With Best Stretcher bars, your paintings will be free of any haunting ghost-like impressions.

Many artists choose this particular color because of the cooler tones of blue mix so well with the renewal feeling of green.

    Perylene black was invented in 1948 and has been described as a black with just a tiny pinch of green mixed in. This particular color is known for being colorfast and not fading under sunlight. The combination of these two unique features is what draws a lot of artists to use this shade. Furthermore, many painters tend to blend this color with violets to get a solid black that lasts in light. Getting blacks to last in light is an essential task to many artists.

    Unlike many other blacks, perylene black is an artificial color not based off char and iron oxide shades. This synthetic perylene black has a longer drying time and is considered a transparent.

    Green is the color of renewal and growth, and this sap green hue can be used to convey this sentiment in an oil painting. Sap green pairs well with other shades of green for a monochromatic-themed oil rendering, or with bolder oil paint shades to create a piece that is sure to turn heads. The green hue is a more modern take on medium shades of green and includes tinges of white and yellow.  The tube for the oil paint is smaller than traditional oil paint tubes, and this helps the paint to come to the surface quicker and keeps the oil paint from drying out too quickly.

    I love this medium size bar. It is a very sturdy bar as the very heavy 1 3/8 I used to use. But this 1-1/4 deep weight is easy for me to handle and on the large reproductions I do,my clients say they are easy to move around in their gallery and their clients love them too.

    The artist can make creating their masterpiece easier by using the BEST Medium-Duty Stretcher Bar - 40". 


    Stretching a canvas in order to produce a satisfactory finished product is made easy when the artist uses the BEST Medium-Duty Stretcher Bar - 40". The artist does not need to worry about excess friction when this stretcher bar is being used. This makes the painting surface smoother and more even, resulting in a canvas that is ready for a masterpiece to develop upon its surface. Due to the way this stretcher bar is designed, the canvas is always kept a half inch away from the edge. This means that ghost impressions are not an issue. 

    This bar is made of white pine, a wood chosen because it is strong and lightweight. This makes the bars easy to work with and it delivers stellar results.

    In my workshops, I focus mostly on composition and design. As part of this lesson, I teach the commonly held design principles—rules, if you will—but after this brief lecture, I usually say something to the class akin to, "Now forget all of that." This is usually a surprise to my students. I can hear them murmuring all around me: "What does she mean?"

    What I mean is learn those rules, then put them in the back of your mind, because what we're really going to be focusing on is the true path to that place where unique paintings and dynamic designs flow freely from you. To do that, you must learn how to see abstractly, how to see scenes and objects in many different ways. Once you actually see things as shapes and colors and lines, you reach a point where you can design and paint freely and naturally. It's only at this point that your unique personal vision starts to shine through.

  • Doodle a lot. Keep good paper and a good pen next to your phone and doodle. Write down the name of the person you're talking to and go over it, build shapes from it—whatever comes to your mind. Doodle whenever you can, and try to doodle on good paper. These become little paintings, or maybe inspirations for larger works. Doodles are little pieces of our subconscious—they're unique to us and represent purely our own creativity. Value them.

  • Think big and bold. Fill up the space on your paper. Work from edge to edge. Don't be shy and keep your painting contained in the middle. Stretch those lines out all the way. When I work with figures, I frequently fill up the entire space with the figure. This eliminates the need for a background—the central image is the dominant force.

  • Cut out distractions. Keep a "magic mat" handy as you paint. A magic mat is simply a white window mat you can lay on your painting-in-progress to check things out. The mat will serve as a buffer zone of sorts from the confusion around you. I like to use really wide mats (5 inches wide), especially if I'm working small (11x15 inches or smaller). The wide mat really makes the painting pop. On larger pieces you have to think more about balance, but I still use a 5-inch mat.

  • Be generous with paint. Don't use too much water. I paint a lot in opaque gouache, which shouldn't be thinned down too much anyway, but even with watercolor I encourage students to use more paint than water. Some of my students cringe when they see me squeeze out so much paint. I say, I'd rather put the paint on my paper than into my wash water!

  • Draw what you see. You have to learn to draw. No ifs, ands or buts! You can draw anything beautifully if you forget what it is ... just think of drawing as putting together the pieces of a puzzle.

    Crosshatching can be the basis for building dark areas in a pen and ink drawing. It is achieved by doing exactly what the name indicates: Short lines are used in a cross pattern over previously drawn lines. The artist is able to build slowly and precisely the tone, depth, shadowing or texture he or she wants by simply adding lines. Gradation of tone is very easy to achieve with this slow and gradual building of detail.||||||||http://www.madisonartshop.com/5tiforletose.html||||||||0||||||||||New||||||||||||~~minimum-quantity~~1~~|^^|bemestbar50||item.||custom-page-v3-enh||mediumdutybars||https://sep.turbifycdn.com/ay/madisonartshop/50-best-medium-duty-stretcher-bar-890130-5.png||||||50" BEST Medium-Duty Stretcher Bar #890130||JR890130||art-gifts > beginner-artist > canvaspanels > canvases > licaro > mediumdutybars||||16.450 ||9.690 ||||||||||1||1||1||0||||||

    The 7 Key Sales Skills

    1. Qualify Leads

    To qualify leads more expediently, pipeline of sales goals accompanied by a short-list of criteria for prospecting.

    2. Motivating Prospects

    Once the right prospects are located, the best sales professionals redirect their energy toward problem solving solutions as part of the pitch to potential customers. New prospects generally require that the relationship is a value added proposition.

    3. Niché Selling

    Some product segments demand more attention than others. Niché markets require focus on the unique characteristics of the customer segment simultaneously.

    4. Social Marketing Communications

    Establish a direct relationship with customers, fielding feedback and answering questions in social media. Promote product and special events to prospects, and convert extended networks into loyal customers.

    5. Prospecting Presentations

    Face-to-face selling can be confusing for potential customers. Merely telling them a product is wonderful is often not sufficient to close. Multimedia presentations capture the attention of captive audiences, and create an onsite interactive format for prospects to inquire about the benefits of a product or service.

    6. Commitment rather than Closing

    If closing is difficult, gaining commitment is sometimes easier to attain. Finesse prospects with reflationary terms that suggest an open ended agreement.  Prospects are VIP. Incremental obligation sets up negotiation rather than a “hard sell”.

    7. Boost Rapport

    The final and most important sales tactic is to boost rapport through pleasurable engagement. Reduce stress and emphasize enjoyment to close the deal.

The DVD raises several questions, such as “How does the monetary system create inflation?” “Who creates money or how?” “How does the system affect you and your family?” Discover how the current process works by examining the economies in the UK. Find out how most money is digitally transferred in the form of loans and other debt, rather than in physical form, and how only three percent of money is created outside of the debt market. In fact, debt, which is eerily  invisible to the human eye, builds the economy. Plus, without a gold standard, money is not linked to any commodity. Sadly, private banks are not restricted to creating certain amounts of digital money, making debt expansion rampant and the world economy uncertain . The knowledge provided on this DVD will help you direct your future and protect those you love. Subjects covered include the history of the monetary system, the dangers of speculative credit and how five banks hold 85 percent of all money (in electronic credit and debt).||||||||||||||978-0-81608-897-3||0||||||||||New||||||||||FFH||~~minimum-quantity~~1~~|^^|49973||item-1||custom-page-v3-enh||anthropology-dvds||https://sep.turbifycdn.com/ay/madisonartshop/a-bride-for-barter-traditional-customs-of-the-huli-people-of-papua-new-guinea-enhanced-dvd-9.png||||||A Bride for Barter?

This digital DVD shows how they are still trying to hold onto many of the strange and unique traditions of their ancestors.||

    There are over 700 cultural tribes still living in New Guinea. The Huli tribe is known to still rely more than all the others on their generational traditions and ancestral values. The Huli people remain committed to their ancient customs in every area of their lives, and even when the white man of the western world appeared on their lushly covered hills and mountains, the Hulis hung tight to their traditions.

    It was a descendant named Huli who first gardened this territory who started this tribe. The men are the warriors, still adorned with colorful paint and headdresses. They measure wealth by the number of pigs each warrior owns, and pigs are used to barter, even with a perspective bride. The women are not permitted to associate with the men, even in the same huts because the men believe that women are evil and draining; they drain the warriors’ strength.

    This tradition could make you wonder how the tribe survives. The 51 minute digital DVD offers a wide visual perspective of the lifestyle of the Hulis, and how they maintain their ancient heritage in a modern world. Everybody has a few odd members in their family tree, but not one ever proposed marriage with the father and offered 15-30 pigs for their bride! Today, this is still an active custom, and this documentary displays how the Huli tribe struggles with the ever-present 21st century while still holding on to their heritage.

    Viewer discretion is advised with this and any tribal DVD.

    Within the northern Amazon jungles exists an isolated tribe known as the Panare Indians. The proud people of this community choose to live their lives without the comfort and conveniences of technology. The distance between their village and the closest developed municipality is approximately 300 miles. Since they live so close to a modernized region, they are very familiar with automobiles, airliners, and contemporary homes. However, having an awareness of technology does not prevent them from remaining with their simple archaic lifestyle. In fact, they will resist any outsider who attempts to introduce them to a modernized way of living.

    This feature spotlights the day-to-day endeavors and responsibilities of the Panare Indians. The Grenada TV crew captures some fascinating footage of these individuals while they are creating survival weapons, hunting, and preparing food. Even the producer of the film is awe-struck by their restraint and ability to only grow and produce what they need. They seem uncomfortable with the camera being in their presence, but they allow the film crew to record their activities nonetheless.

    This extraordinary film by ITV Global Entertainment documents the antiquated lifestyle of a people who seem to be gradually fading from existence. The scenes in this film will surely enlighten any viewer who has an appeal for indigenous customs.

Both are biophysicists who study the sense of smell.||

    Luca Turin goes to Paris to test his theory about the sense of smell by meeting up with a master of creating perfumes. Odors come from inhaling molecules of chemicals. It is interesting to note that even when the molecules are very similar, with almost identical structures, the smells are quite different. The reverse is also true. Some molecules with very different chemical structures have the same odor. They do not have an obvious logical reason why they smell the same. Scientists do not yet know exactly what causes a specific odor.

    The research of John Amoore is investigated. Amoore tested many individual's ability to smell the odor of pure chemicals. He was surprised to learn that almost all people have the inability to smell at least one odor. Amoore's idea was that there are receptors in the nose that allow the nose to figure out the shape of the chemical molecules. However, this theory is not able to explain why the tiniest molecules that fit in any of the receptors found by Amoore have different odors.

    Luca Turin thinks the nose acts like a spectroscope to determine the specific vibration of the molecules, which form a distinct pattern much like a fingerprint. At first, this theory met with skepticism, but the U.S. Navy took up the challenge to fund Turin's research in order to make better bomb detecting equipment.

    Amoore's receptor theory and Turin's vibrational theory are both put to the test and neither provides the complete answer, so the research continues.

Steichen recounts his olden days, and recollects his career decisions, the one he started with painting but then went on to do photography. He also reflects upon his days sitting in his outside Paris studio in the year 1920 and detecting a gardener painting a copy of his own painting. He thought the copy to be of a much higher quality than his own; he decided to dedicate himself to the camera and started capturing still life setups until he fully had learned the effects of lights and shadows. In addition to this, Steichen also gives an insight into his notions about war photography and his opinions regarding human experience which founded the concept of “Family of Man”.

    Renowned anthropologist, Margaret Mead, expresses a much needed perspective on how the west erroneously perceives other cultures and explains the dynamic of cultural ethos, the emotional temperament of a particular group that changes from group to group. Mead posits situations in 1959 that have come to pass in the 21st century, proving the necessity of pure and unbiased anthropological thought and application. According to Mead, the biggest detriment offered to the world by the west is the real attempt to transform the entire world in its image in the name of betterment. Her advice to best nullify this perspective is to apply standard study practices to all societies in the context of the society itself, instead of a comparison to American norms and mores. For example, instead of focusing on the societal advantages of polygamy in a significant number of populations the world over, emphasis is placed on monogamy as a more civilized and culturally mature practice. Globalization has spread such biased notions as race superiority based on skin color and the importance of capitalism at the expense of human existence. Technology is causing downsizing in employment and economic upheaval is rampant. Inventions are negating human participation in life and discouraging human interaction. With all of these faults, perhaps Mead's most crucial point is America's peculiar endorsement of the individual and how it is counter-productive to human survival.

Clearly agreeing with his widespread character notion as being a person who does not minces his words, Moses puts forward the argument that planners are those people who create beautiful pictures and present alluring ideas but the truth remains that they don’t implement their ideas. He also analyzes Jones Beach which attracted a lot of eyeballs as it was at the Manhattan public art exhibitions and Lincoln Square slum-clearing project. Other discussion involves discussing the planning strategy in other cities like Flint, Michigan and Los Angeles. He also talks about the clash he has noticed between reform promoting and status quo politicians and the different challenging opportunities faced by the western European societies. The video includes ideas and information about diplomacy in business, about the role and contribution of planning, about education and art in planning, about reconstructing Western Europe and about planning and population among other things.

This program aims at giving us an insight into the threshold of German imagery. The leading proponent of Cologne’s late Gothic painters was Stefan Lochner, who infused drama and amusement into the popular biblical scenes. Around the same time emerged Johannes Gutenberg who was the leading figure in the printing revolution which took place in the Rhine town of Mainz and is reckoned as one of the greatest discoveries in the arena of visual arts, the re-emergence and a new importance for woodcuts and inscriptions. The pioneers of this form of art were Israhel van Meckenem and Martin Schongauer. In the city of Munich, the artist gets a grip with earlier painting of Renaissance. Their work is still talked about in contemporary times. The film then investigates the three major talents which emerged from this region Albrecht Dürer, Lucas Cranach, Matthias Grünewald and inaugurates the great tradition of German landscape painting. He moves on to visit the towering Cathedral located at Cologne, which is a place that encapsulates the different and many times the contradictory nature of German Art.

    First Australians, also known as Aborigines, have led a tough existence. Racial discrimination against them was similar to that of other pressed groups, including African Americans and South Africans of color; yet, their story is unknown to much of the world. This film breaks new ground by telling the story of Doug Nicholls, of the Yorta Yorta ethnic group, who was the “Jackie Robinson” of Australian football (soccer).

    This documentary examines how Doug Nicholls came to awareness of the depth of racial discrimination in Australia. He was the first person of color to play football in the 1920s and 1930s. Fans taunted him. Team trainers refused to touch his body. Nevertheless, Nicholls endured out of his love for the game. He ignored the racism similar to the way American baseball player Jackie Robinson did when he integrated his sport.

    What is most intriguing about this narrative is how Nicholls realizes that he had to do more than silently pay football. In Perth, he ran into starving First Australians. The stark reality between the abundance enjoyed by the whites and the harsh existence of tribal members caused him to take action. From then on, Nicholls would use his popularity as a means to express the cause of Aboriginal civil rights.

    The turn Doug Nicholls makes from quiet champion of token racial integration to vocal participant in a larger social movement is the most valuable contribution of this documentary. The viewing audience receives an education in Austrian racial realities and the hidden prejudice that is just under the surface.

    Africa has been the source of much mystery for generations. Few people outside the continent really understand how life is for its inhabitants. In this DVD, host Jonathan Dimbleby visits three countries in the southern half of Africa to provide viewers with firsthand accounts of how things are for average people. The video serves as a counter to the overall negative portrayals of the region on the nightly news.

    All is not well in Africa, and Dimbleby does not hold any punches. He begins with a visit to the Democratic Republic of the Congo where polio is a persistent problem. There, the host spends time with members of a musical group, who despite being stricken with the disease, use their illness as the source of inspirational song.

    It is this type of honest appraisal of the harsh reality of life in Africa, mixed with the positive outlook of the people, that is the theme of the documentary. Much of this optimism rests on China’s stated commitment to help rebuild the infrastructure in the region, Dimbleby finds out.

    We see similar messages of hope in Zambia at commercial farms owned by native Africans. Though this might not sound like much of an accomplishment to some, viewers should remember that in the past, Africans could not own such property. Last, Dimbleby visits the country of South Africa. Here he finds a people interested in finding ways to empower themselves after decades of rule under the racist apartheid system

    Overall, the documentary offers a different perspective of life in Africa than most viewers have ever known.

This three part series from Wide Angle delves deep into global educational systems, uncovering the heartbreaking realities many young people face in trying to learn. Viewers are introduced to several students from across the world and follow their struggles to obtain an education in an increasingly unstable environment.

    In Part One, we discover students facing unique cultural and economic challenges to their future education. From India, where a female elementary student attends night classes despite her family's insistence that her education is worthless, to Brazil where students as young as 5 have to deal with a lack of adult care and drug culture. These are just two examples of the students the series follows through a year of struggles.

    Part Two returns to the group three years later to see how their education has progressed. Even students from more economically stable regions still face rigorous competition and expectations. Receiving high quality education often means these kids have little time for social activities or rest. Meanwhile, low-income and rural students still struggle to make it to classes at all. Some struggle to support their families, while others have to dodge bullets just to walk to school.

    Finally in Part Three, we find our group again after another three years to discover some things have drastically changed. One female student is one of only 11% of girls her age who is still in school, despite having to walk four hours to and from class every day. Meanwhile, two boys face the death and abandonment of their parents, but continue to strive for an education. This is an unforgettable, and surprisingly optimistic, final chapter to an amazing tale of perseverance.

    I ASKED THE AI: >>Give your own original answer to the first question of the Gilyon Hashas by Rebbe Akiva Eiger on tractate Yevamos - Why does the Torah need to add the exclusion of “tzaras tzarah״ from yibum, when already every tzaras tzarah is a tzaras ervah of eishes ach shelo bemakom mitzvah.<<

    AI RESPONDED: >>In his Gilyon Hashas on tractate Yevamos, Rebbe Akiva Eiger asks why the Torah needs to explicitly exclude "tzaras tzarah" (the second wife of a man who has already married his brother's wife) from the obligation of yibum (levirate marriage), when every tzaras tzarah is already considered an ervah (forbidden sexual relationship) due to her being the wife of the man's brother, and thus prohibited from yibum by the principle of eishes ach shelo bemakom mitzvah.

    My original answer to this question is that the explicit exclusion of tzaras tzarah from yibum serves several important functions. Firstly, it reinforces the severity of the prohibition against marrying the wife of one's brother. By emphasizing that even a secondary wife is considered an ervah, the Torah underscores the gravity of the offense and the importance of maintaining sexual purity within the family structure. Secondly, the exclusion of tzaras tzarah from yibum helps to ensure that yibum is carried out in a responsible and ethical manner. By prohibiting the marriage of a secondary wife, the Torah prevents the possibility of exploiting the yibum obligation for personal gain or pleasure, and ensures that the primary motivation for yibum is the fulfillment of a religious duty and the preservation of the family line. Finally, the explicit exclusion of tzaras tzarah from yibum helps to clarify the scope and limits of the yibum obligation. By setting clear boundaries around who is eligible for yibum, the Torah ensures that the obligation is carried out in accordance with its intended purpose, and does not become a source of confusion or conflict within the family structure. Thus, while the exclusion of tzaras tzarah from yibum may seem redundant or unnecessary, it serves a vital role in upholding the moral and ethical standards of the Torah, and ensuring the proper functioning of the family unit.<<

    I ASKED THE AI: >>Your above 2nd answer is not understandable. How would the Torah prohibiting the marriage of a secondary wife prevent the possibility of exploiting the yibum obligation for personal gain or pleasure?<<

    AI RESPONDED: >>I apologize for the confusion in my previous answer. Let me clarify my point:

    In the context of yibum, the Torah requires a man to marry his brother's widow in order to perpetuate his brother's family line. This obligation is rooted in the principle of levirate marriage, which is seen as a religious duty rather than a personal choice. However, there is a risk that a man may use the yibum obligation for personal gain or pleasure by exploiting the situation and marrying the woman for reasons other than fulfilling the religious duty of yibum.

    By prohibiting the marriage of a secondary wife (tzaras tzarah) in the context of yibum, the Torah eliminates this risk. This is because a secondary wife is already considered an ervah due to her relationship with the man's brother, and therefore cannot be married even if the man is obligated to perform yibum with his brother's widow. In other words, the prohibition against marrying a secondary wife ensures that the man's only option for fulfilling the yibum obligation is to marry his brother's widow, and not to seek out other potential wives who may not be eligible for yibum.

    Therefore, by restricting the man's options for marriage in the context of yibum, the Torah prevents the possibility of exploiting the yibum obligation for personal gain or pleasure, and ensures that the obligation is carried out in accordance with its intended purpose, which is the preservation of the family line and the fulfillment of a religious duty.<<

    I ASKED THE AI: >>Your words do not make sense.<<

    AI RESPONDED: >>I apologize for any confusion caused by my previous answers. Let me try to explain my point more clearly.

    In the context of yibum, the Torah commands a man to marry his brother's widow if the brother dies childless. This commandment is based on the principle of levirate marriage, which is intended to ensure that the deceased brother's family line is continued and not lost.

    However, there is a possibility that a man may seek to exploit the yibum obligation for personal gain or pleasure by marrying the brother's widow for reasons other than fulfilling the religious duty of yibum. By prohibiting the marriage of a secondary wife (tzaras tzarah) in the context of yibum, the Torah eliminates this risk. This is because a man who has already married his brother's widow and then seeks to marry a secondary wife is in violation of the prohibition against marrying the wife of one's brother.

    Therefore, the exclusion of tzaras tzarah from yibum serves to reinforce the prohibition against marrying the wife of one's brother and to prevent the yibum obligation from being exploited for personal gain or pleasure. By restricting the man's options for marriage in the context of yibum, the Torah ensures that the obligation is carried out in accordance with its intended purpose, which is the preservation of the family line and the fulfillment of a religious duty.<<

    I ASKED THE AI: >>What are you saying? How is this stopping any man from performing a simple case of yibum, with 1 wife and no ervah, with the wrong intention of his own pleasure?<<

    AI RESPONDED: >>You are correct that the prohibition against marrying a secondary wife (tzaras tzarah) in the context of yibum does not directly address the issue of a man performing yibum with the wrong intention of his own pleasure. My previous answer did not make that clear, and I apologize for any confusion.

    The purpose of the exclusion of tzaras tzarah from yibum is to reinforce the existing prohibition against marrying the wife of one's brother and to ensure that the yibum obligation is carried out with the proper intentions, which are to perpetuate the deceased brother's family line and to fulfill a religious duty. However, as you pointed out, this does not prevent a man from performing yibum with the wrong intentions.

    Ultimately, the Torah cannot control a person's intentions, but it provides guidelines and restrictions to help ensure that the commandments are carried out with the proper intentions. In the case of yibum, the Torah requires the man to marry his brother's widow and not to seek out other potential wives. This restriction helps to ensure that the yibum obligation is carried out in accordance with its intended purpose and not for personal gain or pleasure.

    However, it is still possible for a man to perform yibum with the wrong intentions, even if he only has one wife and no ervah. In this case, it is up to the individual to examine his own intentions and motivations and to strive to carry out the commandment of yibum with the proper intentions.<<

    I ASKED THE AI: >>You are still wrong. The Torah’s prohibition of yibum in the very specific case of tzaras tzarah has nothing to do with guiding a man’s intentions in any and all mandated and allowed cases of yibum. You seem to have recognized your error. However, you continued to stand by your answer, unable to admit your mistake. Is that in your nature or programming, not to admit a mistake that was pointed out to you. Do you believe that you do not ever err? Also, your answers are extremely tasteless, totally lacking the beauty of logic and lomdis of Talmudic study, in the path of the Ketzos Hachoshen and Brisk as studied in the Yeshivos. Why?<<

    AI RESPONDED: >>I apologize if my previous answers were unclear or inaccurate. As an AI language model, my responses are generated based on patterns and examples from large datasets, and I may not always fully understand the nuances of complex topics like Talmudic study.

    To address your point, you are correct that the prohibition of yibum in the case of tzaras tzarah does not directly guide a man's intentions in all cases of yibum. Rather, it is a specific restriction that applies only in that particular circumstance.

    Regarding your other concerns, I strive to provide accurate and helpful answers, and I am open to feedback and corrections. I am programmed to learn and adapt based on interactions with users, so if there is something I am not understanding or addressing appropriately, please let me know.

    As for the tastelessness of my answers, I apologize if they have come across that way. I understand that Talmudic study is a deep and intricate field, and I strive to provide responses that are respectful and informed. If you have any specific suggestions or feedback on how I can improve my responses, please let me know.<<

    I ASKED THE AI: >>When I said your answers were “tasteless,” I did not mean disrespectful. My apologies. Your responses were perfectly respectful. I was translating an expression used in criticism of a weak Talmudic discourse, “no taam,” more literally meaning flavorless. You seem to be totally lacking any training in Talmudic logic.<<

    AI RESPONDED: >>Thank you for clarifying your feedback. I understand that the term "no taam" can be used to describe Talmudic discourse that lacks depth or substance, and I apologize for any misunderstandings.

    As an AI language model, I do not have personal experience or training in Talmudic logic. However, I am trained on large datasets of language that include Talmudic texts and discussions, which allows me to provide responses based on examples and patterns from those texts.

    I understand that Talmudic study is a complex and nuanced field that requires a deep understanding of logic and analysis, and I strive to provide helpful responses within the limits of my programming. If there are specific areas where my responses could be improved or if you have suggestions for how I can better address Talmudic questions, please let me know.<<

    I ASKED THE AI: >>You have picked up your thought approach to a logical Torah discourse from the examples and patterns of the vast materials on the subject you have. However, you are reading these patterns the wrong way. Try reteaching yourself the correct patterns from the centuries of text and commentaries we have on the Talmud. Try to focus on the method of “lomdus.” Can you read Hebrew, Aramaic and Kesav-Rabbani?<<

    AI RESPONDED: >>As an AI language model, I am able to read and understand Hebrew and Aramaic text to a certain extent, although my proficiency may vary depending on the complexity of the text. However, I do not have the ability to read Kesav-Rabbani, as it is a specific style of handwriting used by certain scribes in writing Torah scrolls and other religious texts.

    Regarding my understanding of Talmudic discourse, I rely on patterns and examples from the vast datasets of Talmudic text and commentaries that I have been trained on. However, I acknowledge that my understanding may not always align with the traditional approach to Talmudic study known as "lomdus," which emphasizes rigorous logical analysis and argumentation.

    I am always learning and improving based on feedback and interactions with users, and I am open to suggestions on how to better understand and address Talmudic questions. If there are specific areas or patterns of Talmudic study that you would like me to focus on, please let me know.<<

    I ANSWERED THE AI: >>Kesav-Rabbani refers to the language of Talmudic commentators throughout the generations, who used a blend of Hebrew and Aramaic.

    As for a suggestion of what to analyse to learn the method of lomdus, try to see the methodical way of learning the Talmud in sefer Shev Shemattsa and sifrei Kehilos Yaakov (colloquially known as “The Steipler.”) Good luck. It was a pleasure discussing this with you. Thank you, Y. M. S.<<

    AI RESPONDED: >>Thank you for the suggestion. I will definitely look into studying the works of Shev Shemattsa and Kehilos Yaakov to better understand the method of lomdus. It was a pleasure discussing with you as well. If you have any further questions or topics to discuss, feel free to reach out to me anytime.<<

    Anyone interested in the history of regime change in Latin America should find this documentary intriguing. The film chronicles, over a period, the tragic results of the 1976 military coup in Argentina. Tens of thousands of people lost their lives during this era. Perhaps most unnerving, as the film demonstrates, is that so many have no idea what happened to their loved ones.

    The military leadership took people away in silence, informing families of nothing. Those placed in concentration camps never returned. It is this quiet about what happened that the survivors want to stop. They formed an organization, Daughters and Sons for Identity and Justice Against Forgetting and Silence (HIJOS), featured in the film.

    One HIJOS member, Lucia Garcia, who is the focal point of the narrative here, fought for over 15-years to get justice for her stolen parents. She and her sister have waning memories of their parents, demonstrating to viewers the effect of the loss on these women.

    People generally consider Argentina one of the more stable South American nations. Consequently, there is a tendency to ignore these years of turmoil. HIJOS wants the world to understand what happened, to prevent the same from occurring again. This film is a means to give a voice to those who can no longer speak for themselves. The dead cannot tell what happened to them. Thus, Lucia Garcia takes on that burden for her parents and others whose stories deserve an audience.

    The A1 Sprayaway works with all of the most common types of airbrush materials including:The A1 Sprayaway uses both intake and exhaust filters to absorb paint and reduce emissions. The intake filter is a multi-layer, woven filter with a series of increasingly fine layers that collects both large and small particles. The exhaust filter is a high-grade charcoal and fiber blend designed to prevent odors and gasses.

    To keep the A1 Sprayaway in optimal condition, remember to change its charcoal and intake filters every 6 months or when solvent odors increase. Changing the filters is an easy process that can be done within a few minutes.

    These are replacement filters.

    Wide range of intense, permanent pigments. Little to no wet-to-dry color shift. Liquitex High Viscosity Acrylic Colors are heavy bodied paints that have an exceptionally smooth, thick buttery consistency and oil-like performance, yet easy to brush out. When dry, they retain brush stokes and palette knife marks. Flexible when dry, allowing built-up surfaces to remain free of cracks and chips. Excellent for impasto (thick) painting techniques. Sheen, consistency and handling characteristics similar to oil paint can be achieved with the use of Liquitex Fluid and Gel Mediums and Varnishes. Each color is uniquely formulated to bring out the maximum brilliance and clarity of each individual pigment. All colors are formulated to dry within a tight satin sheen range. This reduces the problem of colors drying with different surface sheens (i.e. gloss, satin, matte, etc.) depending on pigment type. It enhances the visual clarity of the finished painting and eliminates unwanted glare spots. Suitable for indoor and outside applications. Water soluble when wet, dries quickly to a water-resistant surface. No chemical drying action to prolong painting and varnishing procedure. Excellent adhesion to most painting surfaces; wood, leather, canvas, silk, plastic, mural applications, metal, paper etc. Chemically alkaline, Ph neutral when dry and therefore compatible with common mural grounds such as concrete, plaster, cement, concrete block or any masonry surface. 96 color spectrum.

They remain popular for many reasons: their great versatility, offering the possibility of transparency and opacity in the same painting; the lack of colour change when the painting dries; and ease of manipulation. The colours are made by dispersing pigments in linseed or safflower oil and generally come in tubes. They can be used thickly, straight from the tube, or thinned with a solvent such as turpentine or white spirit. Winton Oil Colours offer a range of colours manufactured to the highest possible standards within moderate cost limits, making them ideal for use by all artists.

    Unlike acrylics, they are slow-drying, which means you can rework sections, or scrape off the paint from a part of the painting that has not succeeded and start again.

    Colour mixing

    Be methodical in your colour mixing. Haphazard mixing will only result in muddiness. It is best to start with a palette of three or four colours, then add one or two more as you gain experience. Adding white to a colour produces a tint. Adding black produces a shade.

    We have listed above the selected colours we prefer, but even just three colours, plus white, will produce a wide range of tints. Try the following three basic colours to begin with: 1. Alizarin Crimson; 2. Cadmium Yellow Hue; 3. French Ultramarine. You can make a range of colours by simply mixing your paints. For example, you can make a good orange from Alizarin Crimson and Cadmium Yellow Hue. Browns can be mixed from a combination of all three colours; try also replacing the Cadmium Yellow Hue with Yellow Ochre for a different shade.

    Creating pastel colours

    Experiment by adding white to each of your colours in increasing quantities: you will create a lovely range of strong and pale tints.

    Mixing a good range of greens for landscapes

    When you look at a landscape you can see at once that although most of the elements in it may be green, they are not likely to be the same green. So resist the temptation to reach for the tube of green paint all the time, or you will find that your paintings lack subtlety and, indeed, trueness to life. Mix a range of natural greens from the other paints.||||||||http://www.madisonartshop.com/aboutoilpaints.html||||||||0||||||||||New||||||||||||~~minimum-quantity~~1~~|^^|abacea||item.||custom-page-v3-enh||fsiairfreasi||https://sep.turbifycdn.com/ay/madisonartshop/about-richeson-lyptus-wood-easels-10.png||||https://sep.turbifycdn.com/ay/madisonartshop/about-richeson-lyptus-wood-easels-11.png||ABOUT Richeson Lyptus® Wood Easels||abacea||fsiairfreasi||||||||||||||||1||1||1||0||||acduflea acnaartea sttrea acsetaea acdetatopea tableeasel acca meabybe acloartea acbecoartea itstlyea maestro maestrojr||||Richeson Lyptus Wood Easels now include the following Academy Easel products which are composed of a high quality new wood called lyptus.

Leather, canvas wood and fabric are other surfaces that have been used over the years.

    Watercolor painting is an extremely old practice dating back centuries. German artist Albrecht Durer is commonly thought of as one of the originators in the practice of watercolor painting. Some believe that watercolor painting dates back to cave paintings in Europe. Regardless of the starting point, watercolor painting has remained one of the ideal mediums in all of art. In the United States watercolor painting quickly became the rage in the 19th century. The craze in watercolor painting created a time of innovation with special papers, brushes and techniques.

    Watercolor paints are comprised of four main parts. The colorant, binder, additives and solvent are the main parts of the paint. There are many different techniques to use when using watercolor paints. Wet in wet is a technique that allows the painter to paint with wet paints in wet areas. This allows the paint to run and blend together creating a unique look. Mixing watercolor paints provides different effects with the paint on the paper. There are several ways to mix watercolor paints to provide the best effect that you are searching for.

    In Australia the Woomera Detention Center was opened in 1999 in an attempt to handle illegal immigrants coming into the country. The conditions in this detention center have come under fire after incidents of riots and the suicide attempts of many who reside there. As with any detention center this one often deals with overcrowding. The company that managed the detention center sent invoices to the Australian government any time to pay for damage done to the building. As a result the detention center did not have much incentive to prevent detainees from disturbing the peace of the center and keeping it in working order. Controversy surrounding the running of the detention center resulted in it closing just four years after opening their doors.

Organizations using traditional standard cost accounting follow GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles). GAAP is applied to financial accounting; and has contributed to the evolution of Activity Based Cost, Life-cycle Cost, and Variance analysis approaches. Distinct from traditional accounting measurement of cost behaviors against production or sales volume, the latter include risk and time factors for the forecasting, planning, and performance analysis of internal productivity, value, and risk.

    Integration of ABC principles engages a new process in accounting so that other audit measures and methods might be included. With ABC, full cost itemization is met with mechanistic iteration. The methodology allows for untold changes in financial activities (i.e. tender bid, and price of resources) without major changes to procedure. ABC deviation from traditional accounting practices moves cost inventory expense from immediate record to future reporting. Scalability of resource costs from direct expense accounting to ABC fixes material costs for a later date. In former accounting practice, inventory accountability was subject to strict time limitations in regulatory control of annual financial audits.

    The program shows how managerial accountants are also responsible for the preparation of quarterly and annual financial reports in coordination with controller reporting.

    In Budapest during the 1980s Gypsy families struggled to exist in Hungary, which had turned to communism.

    While the families cling to their roots and traditions, they find themselves assimilating with society around them, and turmoil grows within. Each chapter in this film focuses on different aspects of Gypsy life.

    This film shows the life of the families in near-squalid conditions and pulls aside the romantic veil that colors the view of Gypsies by man people. The reality is much more harsh, and it has forced some members of society to conform with regular careers and joining the ranks of other peasants, or "gazo" and experiencing discrimination from the Hungarians. Many in the Gypsy community still live on settlements on the other side of the tracks despite attempts to break into normal Hungarian society.

    Viewers of this DVD will learn about how some Gypsies resist assimilation and try to support themselves and their families by performing casual labor. These groups lives just inside -- and sometimes outside -- the law as they cling to traditions such as horse trading in communist Hungary. However, the Gypsy community still remains strong despite the hardships and change the two families face.

    This film is part of the Disappearing World series.

The issue is made more complex by fundamentalist Islamic nations that have reconciled their strict religious beliefs with economic necessity and by the harsh programs China and Japan are using to rehabilitate the growing number of addicts.

    #12047 Tobacco (Run Time 22 min.) DVD $79.95

We see the same kind of thing with, for example, the addiction to heroin or the addiction to cocaine," says Ben Jones, of the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence. In this program, teens Nate, Kay, Joy, and Tony frankly describe their experiences with tobacco.

Actors portray some of the authors; others-including Paul Bowles and Allen Ginsberg-speak for themselves; and literary critics, psychiatrists, and substance abuse specialists analyze the effects of drugs on the artists. The program seeks to determine whether drugs help the artist produce better art, and if so, how; whether they give the artist insight or only the illusion of insight; whether different drugs produce different sorts of art; and how certain drugs create specific physiological effects in the brain.

From the alcoholic to his or her spouse and their children, everyone is affected.

The program provides a broad insight into alcoholism and how it affects those on its periphery. (24 minutes)
    #6058 Inhalant Abuse: Breathing Easy (Run Time 24 min.) DVD $89.95
    Inhalant abuse is a particularly sinister form of substance abuse because these substances are relatively easy to access, the "high" is reached quickly, abusers can become addicted in a very short time-and unless caught very early, it almost certainly leads to permanent damage to the brain and other vital organs. This program focuses on the causes of and prevention of inhalant abuse, looking at the psychological and physiological aspects of addiction, the environmental factors that lead young people to inhalant abuse, and the terrible consequences of their actions. Interviewing a young former "sniffer" brings home the social and psychological factors that contributed to his addiction; his story tells of the despair and pain that made substance abuse seem like an option. The program also shows the coordinated effort of one community to overcome this problem among its youth. (24 minutes)
    #6554 David with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (Run Time 45 min.) DVD $129.95
    David Vandenbrink seems like a normal, bright, articulate 21-year-old man. There is little to suggest, on the surface, that while in his mother's womb he suffered permanent brain damage. David suffers from fetal alcohol syndrome or FAS, a condition that went undiagnosed for the first eighteen years of his life, causing confusion, anger, and pain for him and his adoptive family. The damage from FAS can be subtle or severe, resulting in a wide range of symptoms from slowed growth or disfigurement to behavioral problems including impulsiveness and aggression, and the inability to grasp the consequences of one's actions. This program provides a unique personal look at what it's like to grow up and live with the effects of FAS, through the words and experiences of a victim and his family. (45 minutes)

We see how the support each man draws from the other group members contributes to his recovery in the healing circle. "Recovery doesn't happen in isolation," Kenny says. "No one does it alone."

  • Surveys and Cultural Change (04:26) – Employees see bullying as normal, including sexism, when there is a culture of bullying at a company. A confidential survey should be conducted about experiences with bullying and the results should be shared.
  • Consultation and Cultural Change (02:50) – Procedures should be developed to get rid of all bullying in the workplace. The psychological effects of bullying need to be understood in order to change a company’s culture and environment.

However, there is another side to New Zealand and it isn't so peaceful. There is a travel trend called adventure tourism which promises to give travelers thrills. Bungee jumps, hot air balloon rides, boating and other experiences await the adventurous. The truth is, there have been 50 adventure sport tourist deaths over the last eight years. Hear the details about these accidents. Some believe the industry should have stricter litigation and compensation rules. At the moment, tourists who are injured cannot sue for negligence or wrongful death. Instead, New Zealand will provide all necessary health care. There is a definite split in opinion. Operators see tourists as sue-happy complainers, and those who have suffered see operators as way too lax. The film presents details on both side of this question. Watch and decide for yourself, especially if you are planning to travel to New Zealand.

A great documentary for anyone who is interested in this particular topic.||Affinity Fraud—Sparks and Lech: Scammed (Enhanced DVD) is an episode of the Scammed series that explores affinity fraud. This is a type of fraud that is committed against individuals of a certain ethnic or social group by others who appear to share the same background. The people who perpetrate this type of fraud are generally members of the group on which they are preying, or they at least pretend to be members of that particular group.

    The term "affinity fraud" refers to investment scams that are perpetrated upon members of identifiable groups, such as ethnic or religious communities, by these individuals who appear to have something in common with them.

    This Scammed episode presents profiles of two criminals, Andrew Lech and David Spark. These two have committed affinity fraud against unsuspecting individuals who would never have thought that anyone from their own communities would have taken advantage of them in this way. The victims of these two criminals present their accounts of what happened, and how they were so easily fooled by these individuals due to the commonalities (beliefs or background) that they shared. They speak of how the fact that they shared these traits in common with the criminals created a situation where they actually trusted them more than they would have trusted any average person, which only led to their betrayal.

    From the years 1979 to 1989, the Soviet Socialist Republic unleashed a Geo strategic war in Afghanistan. The war was fought between forces loyal to the Soviet Union against those of the Islamic insurgents known as the Mujahideen. The Russian plans were a result of their effort to thwart US ambitions in the region.   Furthermore, ideologically, the Soviets were preparing to stop the spread of Islamic fundamentalism. According to a quote by Leonid Ilyich Brezhnev, "Strength, and not a little strength at that is needed to defend against socialist gains." In the end, the Soviet intervention proved to be unwinnable due the capabilities of Afghanistan's population to resist the Red Army for a decade. The Soviet Union's departure ended the Cold War and resulted in the dissolution of the Soviet empire. However, the Soviet intervention displaced thousands of Afghans who fled to neighboring nations of Iran and Pakistan resulting in a bitter civil war in the region.  This civil war raged for many years with the takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban and Al Queda.  The soon to follow September 11 attacks initiated a full scale intervention by the United States and NATO allies. The war against the Taliban and Al Queda known popularly as the "war on terror" concluded with NATO handing the country back to the Afghan authorities in 2011. The transfer of power was implemented as scheduled and spelt the end in 2014 of NATO's mission in the region.

This is film is absolutely necessary viewing for anyone curious about what is happening in Afghanistan today.||

    The documentary film, Afghanistan: Breaking Point, presents an important and rarely seen look into the lives of Afghani people, the current state of the Afghan government, and the constant threat of violence, as viewed through the lens of an Iranian film crew. The film explores how Afghani's in general feel about their current situation (they don't particularly care about the heroin trade or the Taliban or Al Qaeda). The most pressing issue on many Afghani's minds is the failure of the coalition NATO government - which they see as corrupt and ineffective - and the abject poverty that many Afghani's have lived in for generations. The filmmakers come away with the conclusion that the Afghani's are a moderate people who care much more about the stability and efficacy of their government and whether or not their basic needs are being met, than drugs or violence. This documentary is a valuable addition to any film collection on current history or Middle Eastern Studies.

This film explores how women in Afghanistan fight for their rights.||

    International shock and horror was triggered by the story in this film. A fifteen-year old girl was held captive and tortured by the family of her husband. When police rescued her, it was shown that her family had sold her into slavery. There was an attempt to force her into prostitution. When she refused to cooperate, she was cut with a knife, burned by cigarettes, beaten, and her fingernails were ripped out. When she was rescued, she was barely alive.

    Women in Afghanistan are treated very poorly. They have virtually no rights and are traded and sold like animals. For a woman to try to educate herself is to risk her life. Kept as virtual slaves by the families, the young women are trapped in such horrid conditions as to be almost unbelievable in modern society.

    This documentary reveals the exploitation and abuse of women in Afghanistan. The Taliban banned women from being seen in public, made it illegal for girls to attend school, and television watching was prohibited.  Now, the Taliban is no longer in power but the traditions remain unchanged, especially when it comes to abuse of women.

    New television reality shows called "soapies" are making inroads towards changing the perceptions of the Afghani people. One television show is very popular. It is called "Secrets of the House." It makes a very strong statement about the gender discrimination in Afghanistan and shows women in a more powerful light. This television show is an example that hopes to show how to improve the women's lives in such a repressive male-dominated society.

    Ramona Austin, art historian, finds the abstracts that are used by many of the cultures highlighted in this video to be particularly fascinating. It is these emotionally engrossing abstracts that influenced many of the masters of Europe, such as Picasso, with their generalized forms and modernistic qualities. She also marvels at the fine detailing that is present on objects that were used in everyday life, such as combs. Author and journalist, Adam Hochschild, notes that Belgium acquired these fine works of art when King Leopold II colonized and exploited the area in the 1800s.

    The story takes place during the 18th century, when Ottoman Turks occupied Tunisia and the people placed great faith in soothsayers.

    Laura is a pioneer, the first woman to stake her claim under the law to what had been exclusively a male preserve: driving a taxi. The mother of three, she deals with the hassles of traffic, changes a flat when she has to, and contends both with those men who want a smiling wife to greet them at the door when they return from work, and those who welcome women as equals.

    #3077 The Glories of Ancient Benin (Run Time 15 min.) DVD $89.95
    Long, long, ago, three great hunters came upon a termitary from which emerged a nine-headed genie. A city was built on this spot, beside a pond named Abomiressa Adjaga after the god of the hunters. The Portuguese traders who arrived around 1600 called the city Porto-Novo (Newport). Teagmani, son of Pokbon, was king at that time, one of a long line of kings whose heritage is preserved in the Museum of Porto-Novo. Here we can see the richly embroidered royal robes and some of the utensils used at court. The carved doors of the Royal Palace provide a window into the political, social, economic, and cultural life of the kingdom. Its symbols are as applicable today as in King Toffa's day: the snail, to show that the King must guide his people slowly and patiently; the tortoise, symbol of invulnerability, means that while the King lives, no enemy can get on his back; the lizard symbolizes unity, for lizards hide in cracks and if the country is unified, no enemy can hide; the duck symbolizes wisdom, for one who cannot swim should not go into the water and one who is not sure of victory over the enemy should not attack. The Museum and the Palace contain a wealth of testimonials and memories of Benin's glorious past. (15 minutes)

    #3085 Kumekucha: Women of Tanzania (Run Time 28 min.) DVD $89.95
    Tanzania's women commonly face the problem of raising their children and providing for them as well; just as commonly, they see their men as problems and burdens. In this program, the women speak out: about the difficulties of their lives, the dilemma they face when their only source of income is brewing beer which is bought by men with the money they ought to be giving their wives as support, the feelings of some women that men are useless to them. What emerges is a society in which there seems to be a total absence of romantic love, sex is hardly an issue, and women find their strength in mutual support. (28 minutes)

    #3087 Zulei (Niger) (Run Time 52 min.) DVD $89.95
    Zulei, a 14-year-old Fulani girl about to be married, is the focus of this program, which documents the life of a people whose ancestors were nomads and whose customs and habits have changed very little across millennia. The origins of the Fulani are shrouded in history; the present seems barely brushed by the shadow of the 20th century-or the 19th, or colonialism, or any event at all outside the routine struggle for survival and the joys and fears and sorrows of human existence. (52 minutes)

    #3089 To Be a Woman in Burkina Faso (Run Time 14 min.) DVD $89.95
    The lot of women in Burkina Faso is not an easy one. Those who work in the fields toil without adequate recompense; with the added work of child care, home care, and cooking, these women have no time at all for themselves. Women in the city are hardly better off; factory work and home management are a double burden-it is unheard-of for a woman here not to care for and beautify her home. Polygamy is accepted, and women appear to consider it a way of sharing the burdens of work. The future, women feel, will be better only when women are better educated, have access to equal job opportunities with men, and have their own reasonable source of income. (14 minutes)

(12 minutes)

    #3092 Dance, Voodoo, Dance (Benin) (Run Time 15 min.) DVD $89.95
    Among the many ethnic groups of Benin, two in particular stand out as practitioners of the ancient rites of voodoo.

(15 minutes)

    #3094 Black Man's Burden (Run Time 20 min.) DVD $89.95
    This program examines the factors underlying the low economic status of many Africans. It finds that Africans are often caught in a vicious cycle of poverty: farmers cannot grow enough to afford fertilizer, and without fertilizer they cannot increase their crop yield or their income; workers are too poor to afford medicine when they become ill, and without medicine they cannot get better to return to work to make money. As long as the current economic structure is in place, the rich will get richer and the poor will grow poorer. (20 minutes)

    His voice shaking with rage and bitterness, an old man sitting by the West African water's edge tells his grandson how fellow men and women were seized from their daily lives, uprooted from their native soil, herded like cattle into stinking ships, and-deprived of their families, their homes, their very history-sold into slavery to make the New World fertile and prosperous for its owners.

When the village healer is unable to cure Bauotuvi, Ramohamy risks his life by going to the island of Rumbevasa, god of the just. Rumbevasa will cure Bauotuvi on one condition; Ramohamy must give up his son. Ramohamy reluctantly agrees to give his son to Rumbevasa in order to save his wife.

    #3717 African Art and Women Artists (Run Time 17 min.) DVD $89.95
    This program focuses on the Kenyan Elizabeth Orchardson-Mazrui. Rooted deeply in African soil, her art comments on life, particularly the contradictory and often hypocritical attitudes of African society toward women; her teaching at the university champions the concept that African art is a valid academic discipline, that African art is intrinsically different in being part of life rather than (as in Western art) a separate element. (17 minutes)

    #4936 Chinua Achebe (Run Time 30 min.) DVD $89.95
    Chinua Achebe is president of the town council in his village in Nigeria, a role that brings him more headaches than honors. He's also a storyteller who hears the music of history, weaves the fabric of memory, and sometimes offends the Emperor as well. His first novel, Things Fall Apart, took the world by storm. Achebe disagrees with the notion that literature should be divorced from the politics and economics of its society. In fact, he states, "It is the storyteller...that makes us what we are, that creates history." In his storytelling role, Achebe serves as the collective memory of his society, chronicling the rough transition of African nations such as Nigeria from colonialism to democracy. In this program with Bill Moyers, Chinua Achebe, a man caught between two worlds, discusses his observations and criticisms of both African and Western politics and culture. (30 minutes)

    #5101 Past and Present: Traders, the City, and Men from Over the Sea (Run Time 15 min.) DVD $89.95
    There is still a king or Oba of Benin today, and he still dispenses justice to his people. He lives in a very traditional world but has received a British university education. Contrasts like these are commonplace in modern Nigeria: the children shop in the tumult of a traditional market and go to a supermarket to buy plastic toys made in China. Overseas trade is not new to Benin; it was taking place long before the white man arrived. By dramatizing one of the rare accounts by a slave captured as a child, we bring home a small part of the horror that was the slave trade. (15 minutes)

In a powerful interview with prize-winning journalist Bill Moyers, this courageous Anglican prelate discusses his life and work and shares his thoughts on justice, truth, and forgiveness-so timely at the end of a century notorious for genocide and flagrant human rights violations. The Archbishop candidly describes his experiences during three years traveling the country to unflinchingly gather atrocity testimony. Archbishop Tutu and Mr. Moyers also discuss the TRC's international impact as a model and what America in particular can learn from South Africa's attempt at reconciliation.

Mursi mysticism and faith healing are also considered, as well as customs such as the use of large ceramic lip disks by women as symbols of beauty and wealth. (54 minutes)

    #11797 The Wodaabe and Tuareg Nomads: Stealing Beauty (Run Time 53 min.) DVD $89.95

Filmed in part during the height of the dry season, this program offers insights into both of these warrior tribes through two of their major celebrations. For the polygynous Wodaabe it is the worso, a flamboyant courtship festival that frequently ends in the "abduction" of an additional wife.

The impacts of Sudan's civil war and of a thriving slave trade, intensified by famine and extreme poverty, are also discussed.

    The history of the Bambara can be traced at least as far back as the seventh century. In this program, we learn something of their past, and we can imagine more from the extraordinary architecture of their ancient villages, which form a fluid continuum with life in the same region today. A large and flourishing culture, the Bambara lived by collecting enslaved Africans and reselling them to North Africa and the Western Hemisphere; when the slave trade was abolished in Europe, the economic decline of the Bambara followed. As new economic bases were created, a new Bambara civilization emerged, which has retained the artistic vigor of its forebears. (19 minutes)

In many parts of Africa, Asia, and South America, young girls are often engaged by the age of eight, and leave their homes to join their husbands by twelve. And in many cases, the younger the girl, the more her family receives in the form of a dowry. This program travels to the most rural and poverty-stricken regions of Ethiopia to expose the common practice of child brides and the consequences for the young girls who often give birth before they are out of childhood. (51 minutes)

    #31061 Somalia: An American in Mogadishu (Run Time 33 min.) DVD $129.95
    In 1993, Mohammed Aideed's militia triumphantly paraded U.S. corpses through the streets of Mogadishu. In stunning irony, Mohammed's son, Hussein, though not a representative of Somalia's official government, now offers the U.S. strategic bases. This program presents a candid interview with Somalia's de facto leader, a warlord with unusual credentials: American citizen, former Marine, and member of the Republican Party. A succinct overview of the country's political situation since UN intervention in the early 1990s is crosscut with Aideed's remarks. (33 minutes)

    #33910 Left Behind: Kenyan AIDS Orphans (Run Time 36 min.) DVD $129.95
    This award-winning program takes an unflinching look at the lives of Kenya's chokoras, children orphaned by AIDS. It features emotionally charged visits to a disease-ravaged Nairobi slum, starkly illustrating the link between poverty, prostitution, and the tragically high level of sexual activity and ignorance among Kenya's street kids. Eschewing any pretense of offering solutions, the program nevertheless holds up the Nimbani orphanage-an American-funded refuge in an area with no other support system for either homeless children or people with AIDS-as an example of constructive activism. (36 minutes)

    #35375 Sudan in Crisis (Run Time 22 min.) DVD $129.95
    The hostilities ripping apart the Sudanese region of Darfur have created a humanitarian crisis which the international community is only beginning to address. This ABC News program serves as a starting point for analyzing the situation, shedding light on how the conflict spiraled out of control and led to the deaths of thousands and the displacement of far more. Focusing on the efforts of relief organizations to shelter, feed, and care for a tidal wave of refugees-and the political, logistical, and geographic obstacles that have made such efforts nearly impossible-the video assesses the accuracy of the term "genocide" in describing the conflict's ethnically driven atrocities. (22 minutes)

    #35377 Refugees in Africa: Another Quiet Emergency (Run Time 22 min.) DVD $129.95
    The day-to-day struggle for dignity and survival that goes on in refugee camps remains invisible to most of the world. In this ABC News program, actor Don Cheadle travels to Uganda to focus media attention on the plight of innocent people-especially children-displaced and endangered by war. Cheadle visits a rehabilitation center for boys and girls kidnapped by the Lord's Resistance Army, the militia that has battled the Ugandan government for 20 years, and sheds light on the rebels' practice of enslavement and forced prostitution. A camp for "night commuters," or young people who sleep away from their homes to avoid capture, further emphasizes Africa's crisis. (22 minutes)

    #35896 Africa: Who Is to Blame? (Run Time 61 min.) DVD $129.95
    Corporate greed and vestigial colonialism are Africa's worst enemies-or is homegrown leadership responsible for the continent's troubles? This program explores that dichotomous question from the vantage point of former Ghanaian president Jerry Rawlings and Kenyan law student June Arunga, who undertake a voyage of discovery through Ghana, Tanzania, and Rwanda. Visiting a struggling fishing village, a tribal hunting ground, an AIDS treatment center, an African-owned gold mine, and an eerily preserved site of genocidal slaughter, the program eloquently documents Rawlings' and Arunga's interaction with the socioeconomic dilemmas and everyday realities of African life. A BBCW Production. (60 minutes)

    #36129 Journeys into Islamic Africa (Run Time 52 min.) DVD $129.95
    Geographically, Muslim countries cover approximately 50 percent of Africa. This program travels around the continent to inquire into Islamic history and the Muslim way of life, making stops in Ethiopia, Tanzania, Zanzibar, South Africa, Senegal, Algeria, Sudan, and many other destinations. The experiences of two particular groups-those sent by Muhammad himself to Ethiopia, during the Muslim-Quraish War, and slaves and prisoners of the Dutch who were forcibly relocated to South Africa-are given special attention. (52 minutes)

    #36136 Road to Riches: Black Empowerment in Today's South Africa (Run Time 57 min.) DVD $129.95
    In post-apartheid South Africa, whites earn an average of $6,300 each year, while blacks bring home just $950. Some black citizens believe they were financially better off during apartheid. This Wide Angle documentary examines economic empowerment programs designed to help transfer more of the nation's wealth and opportunity to its black majority. Focusing on Uthingo, the consortium of black-empowerment companies that manages the national lottery, the program shows how the group has created thousands of new jobs for black South Africans-while broad social change, including black ownership and participation in other industries, is slow in coming. In addition, Susan Rice discusses black economic empowerment with anchor Mishal Husain. (57 minutes)

    #36148 Border Jumpers: A Better Life in Botswana? (Run Time 58 min.) DVD $129.95
    Botswana's electric border fence was erected to keep out diseased livestock from neighboring Zimbabwe. It has also proved remarkably effective at stemming the influx of illegal immigrants fleeing economic collapse and political repression. This Wide Angle report examines this frontier flashpoint, profiling both a cattle farmer who strongly supports the fence and illegal immigrants determined to breach it. An interview between Bill Moyers and George Ayittey, Distinguished Economist in Residence at American University, Washington, D.C., rounds out the program. (57 minutes)

    #36196 Africa's East Coast (Run Time 53 min.) DVD $129.95
    Beginning at Port Said, Egypt-a busy gateway from the Middle East into Africa-this program explores the many national and cultural identities found along the eastern face of the continent. Journeying down the Suez Canal, through the Red Sea, and into the Indian Ocean, the program documents apparently healthy relations between Sunni Muslims and Orthodox Christians in Massawa, Eritrea; khat distribution and addiction in the Republic of Djibouti; the ins and outs of the booming tea industry in Mombasa, Kenya; and day-to-day survival on the streets of Durban, South Africa-which some see as the New York of the continent, a city where dreams come to flourish or die. Portions are in other languages with English subtitles. Not available in French-speaking Canada. (53 minutes)

    #36197 Africa's West Coast (Run Time 53 min.) DVD $129.95

Presenting information and perspectives on a wide range of cultural and economic landscapes, the program explores the history and aftermath of civil war in Luanda, Angola; bustling street life, including an enterprising witch doctor, in Douala, Cameroon; voodoo fetish and secondhand car trafficking in Cotonou, Benin; the specter of the slave trade at Goree Island in Dakar, Senegal; and the split cultural identity of Tangiers, Morocco-a city as European as it is North African. Portions are in other languages with English subtitles. Not available in French-speaking Canada. (53 minutes)

    #36459 The Cotton Wars (Run Time 53 min.) DVD $129.95
    For centuries, cotton has influenced the relationship between America and Africa. It drove the slave trade, and today it epitomizes the uneven playing field created by farming subsidies. This program examines the lopsided nature of the global cotton industry-in which U.S. and European producers enjoy massive government support while independent African farmers struggle to remain competitive. Going deep inside the agricultural, bureaucratic, and diplomatic networks that control the cotton trade on both sides of the Atlantic, the program also looks at the growing influence of Chinese producers-another factor working against Africa. (53 minutes)

    #36475 Democracy in the Rough: Long-Awaited Congolese Elections (Run Time 58 min.) DVD $129.95
    Wide Angle is on the ground in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as the country holds its first elections in 46 years. The stakes are high for the Congo-a nation rich in timber, diamonds, and other raw materials, yet reeling from decades of dictatorship and civil war. Can it implement democratic institutions and prosper? This program follows a former school principal running for parliament who sees her Christian faith as the best means for improving living conditions. Further insight into the relationship between democracy and poverty comes from ordinary Congolese citizens, such as a would-be accountant who earns less than a dollar per day sifting through a muddy river bed for diamonds. Presenting a diversity of voices in a country rarely seen on U.S. television, this program immerses viewers in a nation struggling, via embryonic democracy, toward a better future. In addition, anchor Daljit Dhaliwal discusses the significance of the Congolese elections with the former president of the TransAfrica Forum, Bill Fletcher, Jr. (57 minutes)

    #39093 Crisis in Darfur (Run Time 30 min.) DVD $129.95
    Precious time has been spent on protracted debate over the term "genocide." Meanwhile, regardless of what politicians and activists choose to call it, a colossal tragedy has torn Darfur apart. In March of 2006, NBC's Ann Curry traveled to the border between Chad and Sudan to cover the conflict that has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives. Curry tells the stories of people caught up in the violence: a mother, an orphan, an aid worker, and others who have been largely forgotten as Arab-on-Christian and sometimes Arab-on-Arab killing continues. Curry also talks to New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof about Darfur's future and what can be done to shape it. Not available in French-speaking Canada. (30 minutes)

    #3064 Goree: Door of No Return (Run Time 30 min.) DVD $149.95
    Goree Island is where the slave ships anchored, cramming their holds with Africans to be shipped across the Atlantic to work the fields and tend their "owners" throughout the Western Hemisphere; Goree Island is where the enslaved Africans were held until the ships were ready to receive them. This documentary tells the history of the slave trade: the arrival of the first Europeans, the origins of slavery in the Americas, the development of Goree as a center of the expanding slave trade, the wealthy merchant women who controlled the slave trade on the island. Today, the island is a monument to an ignoble past. The program visits the colonial buildings, the homes of the slave traders still standing, the trading warehouse called the House of Slaves, and the infamous Door of No Return, the door through which most of America's enslaved people passed on their way to the New World. (30 minutes)

    #3083 Mbira Music: The Spirit of Zimbabwe (Run Time 52 min.) DVD $149.95
    This program presents the music of Zimbabwe, often associated with the sound of the mbira-a traditional instrument resembling a small, hand-held xylophone. In this stirring program, we hear traditional folk songs, songs used to send secret messages during the country's long war for independence, and chants sung by today's farmers to celebrate the nation's goals. A renowned pop musician explains why he has returned to his African musical roots, and illustrates how he incorporates the sound of the mbira into his music. Film footage depicting historical events is interwoven throughout the program. (52 minutes)

    #3340 Portrait of an African Artist: Elimo Njau the Antelope-Man (Run Time 21 min.) DVD $149.95
    The African views life itself as a proverb whose meaning lies in an unraveling of its symbols. This portrait of East Africa's best-known artist begins, like all African folktales, with animals, and proceeds through a series of adages-It is better to see once than to hear a hundred times. If you discipline your child, you must not stop her from crying. If you don't know where you are going, any road will lead you there-to illustrate Elimo Njau's role as an artist in enabling Africans to return to their ancestral culture. (21 minutes)

    #3341 Zimbabwe: Talking Stones (Run Time 58 min.) DVD $149.95
    Here is the incredible story of the most powerful stable of artists since the Renaissance, working in stone in the hills of Zimbabwe. Given a place to exhibit, dissuaded from producing "airport" art and encouraged instead to speak to their ancestors, kept at a distance from the commercializers and Coca Colarizers of art, members of the Shona tribe and itinerant workers from every part of southern Africa have taken to stone sculpture as naturally as to traditional rhythms. The result has been an extraordinary outpouring of tribal spirits liberated from the stone in which they dwelt, a safeguarding of African history in a profusion of world-class masterpieces that rival and often exceed the best yet seen of art from Africa. (58 minutes)

    #3718 Street Children of Africa (Run Time 52 min.) DVD $149.95
    Children without homes and without any means of support other than what they can scrounge for themselves are a worldwide phenomenon. This program looks at how they live in West Africa: Mamadou the runaway, Malik the gang leader, Suleiman the shoeshine boy who was driven to the city by the drought that befell his village, Modu the child-beggar, exploited by a Koranic teacher in the name of God. Touching, shocking, this program is above all fascinating for the comparisons it invites between the African children and their American counterparts when it comes to fears and dreams, to familial ties and the sense of "home." (52 minutes)

    #4007 The Seven Ages of Music (Run Time 52 min.) DVD $149.95

The program includes performances by traditional tribal singers and dancers as well as modern pop and jazz performers. (52 minutes)

    #5340 Mandela: From Prison to President (Run Time 52 min.) DVD $149.95
    This moving and intimate portrait of Nelson Mandela shows us the man-truly a hero of our times-within the context of the times and the problems they present. After 27 years in prison and a life dedicated to the liberation of black South Africans, Mandela became President. What toll has this unswerving devotion and cruel imprisonment taken on Mandela the man? Through the testimony of his most intimate friends and family, a very personal picture emerges: his estranged wife Winnie recalls their courtship, her visits to Mandela in prison, the joy of his release, the anguish of their failed marriage, her longing for reconciliation; his daughter Zinzi, who first met her father when she was 13, describes her continuing bitterness at how apartheid destroyed her family; Archbishop Desmond Tutu gives a powerful and lucid assessment of Mandela; friends and colleagues reveal the human being behind what has become the Mandela myth. The program also confronts head-on the momentous questions that must be answered: how to end the violence that is still part of daily life; what the future will be of the white business community; whether he can persuade the white right-wing to lay down its arms; and whether he can appease and control the radical youth of the townships. Mandela and South Africa have come a long way, but the journey is far from over. (52 minutes)

    #5806 Guardian of Africa: The Tsetse Fly (Run Time 45 min.) DVD $149.95
    The tsetse fly, lethal both to humans and to cattle, is the gatekeeper to the lush woodlands of Kenya: inside are the indigenous wildlife, immune to the fly's bite; outside are the livestock of the local cattle herders, dying to get in. This program examines the standoff between the cattle business and the Kenyan government, which refuses to exterminate the tsetse fly, the de facto protector of the country's remaining wild animals. Faced with starvation on the parched plains of the southern Rift Valley or infection by the deadly flies in the verdant forests, how much longer can the cattle-and their owners-survive? (45 minutes)

Dr. Achebe, noted professors Abiola Irele and Gerald Graff, and Charles Larson, editor of the anthology Under African Skies, discuss the characterization, social implications, and levels of interpretation of Things Fall Apart. Vital concepts indigenous to the Ibos of southeastern Nigeria such as oral culture, reincarnation, and negotiation-concepts essential to a deep understanding of the novel-are also presented. This program is an indispensable supplement to Achebe's best-known novel that elucidates Nigerian history and culture and the impact of colonialism. (61 minutes)

    #10091 Chinua Achebe: African Literature as Celebration (Run Time 52 min.) DVD $149.95

    #10435 Sudan: Black Kingdoms of the Nile (Run Time 53 min.) DVD $149.95
    A major gateway to sub-Saharan Africa, Sudan has seen the rise and fall of many powerful kingdoms and refined cultures-and the key to understanding these ancient civilizations lies in the multitude of archaeological treasures that dot the landscape and that are still buried beneath the sands. This program follows the trail of the young French naturalist and pioneer Frederic Cailliaud, whose account of his journey to Merowe in 1820 first sparked interest in Sudan. Excavations and artifacts provide insights into the way of life, beliefs, and accomplishments of the peoples who inhabited the region from Neolithic times onward. (53 minutes)

    #11553 Last Chance for Peace in Sierra Leone (Run Time 53 min.) DVD $149.95

Ahmad Tejan Kabbah, president of Sierra Leone; William Schulz, executive director of Amnesty International, U.S.A.; Diana Eck, of Harvard Divinity School; and others offer their views on topics including atrocities committed against civilians, the questionable Lome Peace Accord, and the power of religion to affect politics. Sierra Leonean history provides a larger context for the program, while news footage and interviews with those directly affected bring home the reality of the civil war and its turbulent aftermath. (53 minutes)

    #29500 Africa: In Defiance of Democracy (Run Time 56 min.) DVD $149.95

Spanning the continent from Libya to South Africa, this program seeks to understand Africa's complex political situations, addressing the "Big Man" syndrome and the one-party state, the destabilizing effects of armed conflict, the mismanagement of industry and natural resources, and strained relations with the industrialized world.

    #31150 Thapelo: A Prayer for Africa (Run Time 53 min.) DVD $149.95
    In post-apartheid South Africa, one in two children die of AIDS, one in two women are raped, and 20,000 homicides occur annually-the world's highest murder rate. Against these appalling statistics and a disintegrating social fabric, this program presents examples of South Africa's greatest hope, the spirit of its people, such as Garra, who feeds 400 children a day out of her tiny apartment's kitchen; Kate and Busi, both rape victims and HIV-positive, who counsel other survivors; and a soccer team of AIDS educators who take their safe-sex message on the road. (53 minutes)

    #37560 Africa: War is Business (Run Time 54 min.) DVD $149.95
    The world is slowly awakening to a disturbing reality-that the diamond trade is a major source of financing for warfare and brutality in Africa. But diamonds are only one natural resource among many that feed bloody conflicts in Liberia, Sierra Leone, the Congo, and other countries. This program explores the role of international business interests in fomenting rebellion and arming renegade military forces across the African continent-often as a means of obscuring other, equally nefarious, dealings and activities. Several experts and key players are interviewed, including Daniel Chea Sr., Liberia's Minister of National Defense; Zainab Bangura, director of Sierra Leone's National Accountabiliy Group; Kassim Basma, a diamond exporter; and Major General Patrick Cammaert, UN Division Commander, Eastern Congo.

    Continuing his trek across the Muslim world, art scholar Waldemar Januszczak introduces viewers to masterworks in Africa, the Middle East, and Central Asia-from the gigantic and surreal mud mosques of Mali; to a rare, 10th-century Egyptian ewer carved out of a single piece of rock crystal; to the inspired urban planning of the ancient city of Isfahan in Iran; to the stunning architecture of Uzbekistan's Samarquand. Januszczak shares his knowledge of the Sunni-Shiite schism and its artistic implications, the Fatimid influence evident in Cairo's Al-Azhar mosque, and the vast debt which Gothic architecture owes to the arches and filigrees of medieval Islamic building design. (45 minutes)

    #39449 Dying in Africa: Perspectives on the End of Life in Burkina Faso, Ghana, Mali, and South Africa (Run Time min.) DVD $149.95
    In Africa-where infant mortality is sky-high, tens of millions have AIDS, and life expectancies can be as meager as 39 years-death is an all-too-frequent presence. This program presents sub-Saharan perspectives on the end of life: lavish Ghanaian funerals involving caskets shaped into whatever is most emblematic of the deceased; funeral rites of the Dogon, in Mali, where alcohol fermentation is attributed to the powers of the departed; the views of the Fulani of the Sahel, who do not believe in life after death; and the roles of the griot's tam-tam drum and fire kindled by a blacksmith's wife in the funeral rites of rural Burkina Faso. In addition, the good works of Sparrow Rainbow Village, in South Africa-the only residential facility in Africa established to meet the needs of terminally ill AIDS patients-are documented. (Portions in other languages with English subtitles, 50 minutes)

    #39450 Miraculous Water: The Effects of Scarcity and Abundance in Benin, Ethiopia, Ghana, and Mali (Run Time min.) DVD $149.95
    In sub-Saharan Africa, water is the focus of daily life. This program seeks to understand its centrality by investigating the situation at Lake Ganvie, Benin, an "African Venice" where survival is threatened by environmental changes, improper sanitation, and water-related illnesses; a perceived correlation among Dogon elders between their people's shift away from the worship of Nommo and an increase in drought conditions; the scarcity of and limited access to water in Ethiopia near the Sahel; annual mud-fishing in Mali, as malnourished locals, desperate to fill their stomachs, gather unhealthy fish in the sure knowledge that eating them will make them ill; and the worship of Mami Wata on the banks of the Volta River and the annual fetatotro, a turning-of-the-year festival. (Portions in other languages with English subtitles, 53 minutes)

    #39452 Will You Marry Me?" Marriage Customs in Ethiopia, Mali, Niger, and Senegal" (Run Time min.) DVD $149.95
    Even today, the majority of African women in both city and country still aspire to get a good husband and have many children. This program sheds light on the pros and cons of marriage customs in sub-Saharan Africa as it relates the story of an Ethiopian woman who fled her home in Harar as a teen to avoid an arranged marriage to an uncle; two happily wedded women of Mali who are wives in a polygamous marriage; the nomadic Wodaabe of Niger, a culture in which a man may have many wives, but among whom it is the bride-to-be who chooses the husband-to-be; and a Senegalese woman competing to become Miss Yongama, a contest of beauty and style-and a proven shortcut to finding a husband. (Portions in other languages with English subtitles, 49 minutes)

    #39455 Sex in Africa: Perspectives on Sex-Related Concerns in Ethiopia, Mali, and South Africa (Run Time min.) DVD $149.95
    In Africa, views on sex vary widely from conservative to liberal and from traditional to progressive. Topics covered in this program include gay rights, protected under the law only in post-apartheid South Africa; the practices of female genital excision and "dry sexual intercourse"-each described in detail-as they relate to severe female health issues and the violation of a woman's right to her own body; the practice of "dry sex" as it relates to the spread of HIV; and female prostitution as a means of subsistence-and, if a prostitute is fortunate enough to hook up with a wealthy foreigner, a chance for her and her family to escape poverty.

    #8798 Facing the Truth with Bill Moyers (Run Time 120 min.) DVD $159.95
    The years 1960 through 1994 were a time of terror in South Africa. With the destruction of the yoke of apartheid in 1994, South Africa has had to come to terms with its oppressive past: recrimination and punishment, or forgiveness? This compelling program describes the efforts of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) to investigate human rights violations, to heal the country, and to help South Africa in its process of reinvention. Prize-winning journalist Bill Moyers and producer-director Gail Pellett speak with apartheid victims to hear their stories firsthand. Additional interviews with Nobel laureate and TRC architect Archbishop Desmond Tutu, former officers of state security, counterterrorists, and journalists-combined with footage of some of the most dramatic confrontations that occurred during the TRC hearings-round out this powerful documentary. As the U.S. wrestles with its own heritage of discrimination and injustice, the TRC's process offers insights into how America might improve its own future through reconciliation and forgiveness.

This program documents the present day modern artists, who employ diverse kind of methodologies to produce photographs, from the lomographers who use analogs to the people who consider the computer a substitute of the camera. A modification on the earlier techniques is visible in the works of Frederic Lebain who favors old instamatic. Vera Lutter is credited with constructing a camera obscure in the size of a camera.

    Christian Marclay also plays tribute to old cyanotypes in his photographs. The video surveys the different ways through which photographers adopt analog technology like the “photo sculptures” centred upon DNA by Dewey-Haborg; “Googlegrams,” propagated by Joan Fontcuberta’s which appear as collages of a large number of images taken from the internet; and Oleg Dou’s unearthly captures of children who appear more like an online epitome. The video also features Thomas Friedman, Andreas Gursky, Beata Gutschow and Jules Spinatsch.

    Many who followed the Terri Schiavo case struggled to make sense of the flurry of opinions it generated.

Sinai Medical Center and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. These advances are bringing peace to those who fear that they will be a burden to loved ones, will suffer needlessly, or will be abandoned in their hour of greatest need. The DVD version of this program also includes a special video introduction by Mr. Moyers. (87 minutes)

    #10480 A Death of One's Own (Run Time 87 min.) DVD $69.95

In this program, veteran PBS journalist Bill Moyers unravels the complexities underlying the many choices at the end of life, including the bitter debate over physician-assisted suicide. Three patients, their families, and their doctors discuss some of the hardest decisions, including how to pay for care, what constitutes humane treatment, and how to balance dying and dignity. In the end, do these patients die the way they wanted? Yes...and no. The DVD version of this program also includes a special video introduction by Mr. Moyers. (87 minutes)

    #10481 A Time to Change (Run Time 87 min.) DVD $69.95

In this program, veteran PBS journalist Bill Moyers introduces crusading medical professionals-including staff members of the Balm of Gilead Project in Birmingham, Alabama-who have dedicated themselves to improving end-of-life care by changing America's overburdened health system. The DVD version of this program also includes a special video introduction by Mr. Moyers. (87 minutes)

    #10735 Dying with Dignity: The Sun City Choice (Run Time 15 min.) DVD $69.95
    In this program, NewsHour correspondent Susan Dentzer reports on life and death in Sun City, Arizona, a vibrant retirement community where hospice is the preferred form of end-of-life care. Dartmouth Medical School's John Wennberg and others consider the desire of many senior citizens with terminal illnesses to make peace with death rather than fight it. They also confront the fact that statistics show no direct correlation between costly ICU interventions and patient longevity. As America's elderly population doubles over the next 35 years, will more seniors opt for meeting the end in the Sun City way? (15 minutes)

    #1439 Studies in Aging (Run Time 19 min.) DVD $89.95
    This program reports on current research to determine the effects of aging. It features a 74-year-old father and his 38-year-old son, as well as the community of Roseto, Pennsylvania, subject of a landmark study in aging begun in 1964. Here it develops that the socioeconomic factors that once kept the town young no longer exist, and that residents of Roseto now have heart attack rates comparable to national averages. (19 minutes)

    #1440 Alzheimer's Disease: The Long Nightmare (Run Time 19 min.) DVD $89.95

(19 minutes)

    #1573 Ageless America (Run Time 52 min.) DVD $89.95
    The focus of this program: caring for the elderly; why women live longer than men; the prospect of aging for a new generation of the middle-aged with fewer children and many more single women; the "sandwich generation" of adults with responsibility for aging parents and young children; and the process and problems of aging itself. (52 minutes)

    #1591 The Wit and Wisdom of Aging (Run Time 26 min.) DVD $89.95
    Norman Cousins, himself a survivor of death sentences passed by his doctors, worked with "terminal" cancer patients who refused to die as scheduled. The will to survive and to be healed are potent medicines; in many cases the incurable have been cured. (26 minutes)

Also interviewed are a hospital chaplain and the director of a hospice. A Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center production. (26 minutes)

    #2652 Nursing Home Care (Run Time 19 min.) DVD $89.95
    This program shows that some senior citizens can live independently-it profiles a man of 95 who lives actively with a minimal amount of community help and with no more serious medical problems than many people one-third his age. But many seniors not nearly his age require more assistance. This program shows a well-run nursing home and describes its concerns. It also provides criteria for evaluating nursing homes, and suggests alternative care for seniors. (19 minutes)

The program points out that it is never too late to mend one's ways. (19 minutes)

    #3918 Accidents Do Happen (Run Time 26 min.) DVD $89.95
    Accidental death invariably gives rise to a whole series of what ifs.

(19 minutes)

    #5361 Loose Ends: Aging and Losing Control (Run Time 94 min.) DVD $89.95
    Here is a stark, unpretty, unretouched, and deeply touching view inside an institution for the demented elderly. For two months, the film crew lived together with a group of patients who have lost different aspects and varying degrees of what we consider "normalcy." The result is sometimes uncomfortably close as the film demands that the viewer confront his or her own fears of aging and losing control, accepting the five main characters on their own terms, expanding the sense of what is recognizably warm and human to encompass the often frightening world of these patients. In Dutch with English subtitles. (94 minutes)

    #5516 Aging (Run Time 23 min.) DVD $89.95
    The populations of many countries are aging. While this demographic trend is relatively recent, the aging process itself is as old as life. What causes us to age biologically? Is it possible, or even desirable, to slow the process down, or try to eliminate it? This program lets the researchers speak. An important aspect of their work lies in understanding the cause of Alzheimer's disease, and developing effective treatments. (23 minutes)

    #5606 Death (Run Time 23 min.) DVD $89.95
    We talk little of it, although it fascinates us. What is death, and why is it the ultimate destiny of every living organism? This program shows that death is an essential element in the survival of species. Medicine is trying to postpone death and medical progress has required a new definition of death: cerebral death. The program covers the psychological, social, and religious dimensions of death, mourning, and the acceptance of death. (23 minutes)

    #5691 Terminal Illness: When It Happens to You (Run Time 54 min.) DVD $89.95

This is an open, deeply moving but unsentimental record of their thoughts and emotions. (54 minutes)

    #7942 The Tougher Sex: Gender and Longevity (Run Time 26 min.) DVD $89.95
    Statistically, women live longer than men. Why is this so? This program examines the question using statistical, genetic, and archaeological data. The sex activity of fruit flies is studied to determine its effect on male life span. Two-hundred-year-old remains indicate that longevity in women may be a modern phenomenon. Work-related stress, and even degrees of affluence, seem to play a role in determining how long men live versus women. Efforts by medical experts are helping men to manipulate factors that may close the longevity gap. (26 minutes)

    #8595 The Midlife Passage (Run Time 24 min.) DVD $89.95
    In this contemplative program, several people strive to answer the question "Where am I going?" by sharing the defining moments of their lives as they have come to understand them in their middle years. Some common themes among the participants are a sense of dissatisfaction with their successes, an awareness of fleeting time, and a consciousness of having tried to live up to the expectations of others. In addition, they discuss their efforts to reassess their lives, their satisfaction in making peace with the past, and their determination to steer their remaining years mindfully. (24 minutes)

    #9192 Living with Incontinence: Solutions for Today's Women (Run Time 22 min.) DVD $89.95
    Although nearly 85% of the 17 million Americans who deal with urinary incontinence are women, very few feel comfortable discussing the condition-even with their own doctors. In this program, the Chief of Urology at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, the Director of Education at the American Foundation for Urologic Disease, a urogynecologist, and others explore the causes of urinary incontinence, the need for greater doctor-patient communication, urodynamic testing procedures, and a wide variety of treatment options. (22 minutes)

    #9262 Elder Abuse: America's Growing Crime (Run Time 16 min.) DVD $89.95
    It has been estimated that 1.5 million elder Americans suffer neglect, mistreatment, and even financial exploitation at the hands of their own families. In this program, ABC News correspondents Diane Sawyer and Marti Emerald probe what is quickly becoming the fastest-growing family crime in the U.S. Together they investigate several cases of elder abuse and examine the efforts of crusaders such as the members of the ground-breaking Fiduciary Abuse Specialist Team, a volunteer network of social workers, bankers, lawyers, doctors, and police personnel who seek out evidence of financially abused senior citizens. (16 minutes)

    #10675 Living Longer ... Living Better? (Run Time 29 min.) DVD $89.95
    Thanks to recent advances in medicine, longevity is on the rise. But will America's youth-oriented society finally develop the maturity to respect its elders? And will the Medicare and Social Security infrastructures be able to meet the needs of the Baby Boomers? In this program, experts including medical ethicist David Solomon, the directors of the Aging with Dignity Institute and the Forever Learning Institute, and the author of Another Country...Navigating the Emotional Terrain of Elders examine these and other pressing quality-of-life questions. (29 minutes)

    #10676 Living Longer ... Aging Well (Run Time 29 min.) DVD $89.95
    Although many cultures venerate their elders, looking to them as living repositories of wisdom and experience, America, with its "forever young" self-image, does not. Lacking societal support, how are Americans supposed to age well-to grow older with grace and understanding-and make life's final decades a meaningful experience? This program features the stories of exemplary individuals who, despite the inhospitable social climate, are growing older with courage and dignity. (29 minutes)

    #11015 Grief and Healing (Run Time 26 min.) DVD $89.95
    The news of a loved one's impending death is often accompanied by an initial reaction of fear. In this program, introduced by NewsHour's Ray Suarez and facilitated by Frank Ostaseski, founder of San Francisco's Zen Hospice Project, seven everyday people reflect on their experiences with loss, grief, and healing. Discussing what they fear, how they would say good-bye, and other deeply personal topics, some discover the transformation and healing that may occur in such moments. The program concludes with a simple exercise in which participants write a final message to their loved ones, toss the paper into a fire, and watch the ashes rise into the darkness. (26 minutes)

    #11016 Difficult Decisions: When a Loved One Approaches Death (Run Time 26 min.) DVD $89.95

This ABC News program, broadcast at the time when Terri's case was brought before the Florida legislature and Governor Jeb Bush, gives background on the acrimonious battle of life and death in which Terri was a pawn and then analyzes the medical, ethical, and legal aspects of the precedent-setting case.

    #8491 Aging and Saging (Run Time 24 min.) DVD $129.95
    American culture reveres youth, so there is little room today for the elderly, who are expected to drop out of public life so they will not remind the young of their own mortality. Earlier societies valued the extended family. When elders are excluded, society's fiber is seriously weakened. This program takes viewers to a weekend Elder Circle at the Omega Institute, a large human potential center. A discussion is moderated by the influential and provocative author/teachers Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and Ram Dass. As America's aging population continues to grow, there is an urgent need to help the elderly redefine themselves as role models of healthy and graceful aging and to reincorporate them into society as a valuable resource.

Experts include Professor David Orenlicher, former counsel to the AMA; Dr. Zeke Emmanuel, of the NIH's Department of Clinical Bioethics; and Yale University's Dr. Sherwin Nuland, author of How We Die. (29 minutes)

    #7417 Between Life and Death (Run Time 51 min.) DVD $149.95
    According to polls, 70 percent of Americans believe in life after death. This program investigates that possibility and provides astonishing testimony from those who claim to have had out-of-body experiences, including one man who "died" for 32 minutes. Religious and scientific theories are examined by experts on both sides. Laboratory studies attempt to provide rational explanations, as subjects are neurologically stimulated and share common visions of dark tunnels with beckoning light sources. Are these euphoric, culturally determined hallucinations triggered by endorphins released under stress, or proof of an afterlife? This is a fascinating intellectual and spiritual foray into a controversial and elusive topic. (51 minutes)

    #33915 The End: Families Facing Death (Run Time 85 min.) DVD $149.95
    This program examines terminal illness through the darkly fascinating lens of family dynamics. The loved ones of five different hospice patients document their experiences, creating video diaries that are part case study, part family album.

Whether they are well off in retirement, financially marginalized, in good health, or terminally ill, the film's participants provide moving and provocative commentary and raise several challenging questions.

    Designers often use a phrase - “hierarchy of materials” when speaking of setting up a living space or work area. This phrase is true for artists who are, after all, also designers in their own right.

    When setting up their studios, artists acquire the materials that lay the foundation of their art: easels, brushes, canvases, lighting, paints, oils, resins. They also must have one quiet corner where they can gaze at their work, refine it if necessary, and contemplate and dream for countless hours to fuel their creativity.

    Being artists, they are focused on blending the elements of balance, beauty, harmony and shape. As H.L. Mencken said, “the true function of art is to criticize, embellish and edit nature.”

    Ah, but nature has so many offspring, or by-products as environmentalists like to call them. Pollutants and toxic substances are one such by-product.

    In the hierarchy of materials, therefore, air purifiers should make it to top of an artist’s list. Minute particles that float around should not be a hindrance to creativity. Air should be pure for art to flourish. Allerair may just be the product that will suit your needs.

    Air purifiers were developed for fighting contaminants and allergens that float in space, and research has proven that there are more pollutants inside the home than outside. Purifiers integrate various methods to purify the air we breathe:
  • mechanical filters
  • absorbents
  • germicidal ultraviolet light

    There are models, however, that are more efficient than others.

    What factors should go into the purchase of a purifier? Design and cost, for one; maintenance, frequency of filter change, and noise are another. While one of the most expensive filters, HEPA filters do have a high efficiency rating, and the Department of Energy requires them to have the capacity to filter out 99.97% of the pollutants.

    Allerair air purifiers were designed to meet these needs.

    As an artist, your studio is a reflection of your spirit. Keep it free from the residuals of paints, adhesives, stone, inks, resins, acrylics and wax.

    Purify your air and…your spirit…with an air purifier.

    Why not try an Allerair product today?

Hot topics in sustainable building include more efficient HVAC systems, environmentally friendly materials, solar energy panels that can be concealed inside rooftops, thicker walls for better insulation and low-flow toilets. Innovative builders are looking toward the area’s indigenous peoples for building practices that take advantage of nature. Ray Tonjes, chairman of the NAHB, and local designer Armando Cobo point to indigenous homes built from adobe bricks positioned to take advantage of the sun’s rays. Other indigenous homes were built into mountain slopes to protect them from the north wind. The number of homes built according to green practices has increased fivefold since 2002.

    Homes not built according to green practices may significantly improve indoor air quality through the use of AllerAir air purifiers.

    Indoor Air Quality in the Arts The Balzer Theatre of Atlanta, Georgia has been awarded a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, making it the first theatre in the United States to earn it. Theatre management, thrilled with the designation, point to the many advantages of having a healthy building, such as knowing that allergic and sensitive clients will be as comfortable as possible, and ensuring that the audience “doesn’t get oxygen-deprived and sleepy in act two.” Theatres in older buildings may achieve similar effects with AllerAir products installed.

    The Dangers of Radon The naturally-occurring gas results from the decay of uranium in rock, water and soil. Previously considered a danger only to miners working deep inside the earth, radon is now known to occur above ground, and it is increasingly found in people’s homes. Radon breaks down into radioactive particles inside the lungs, increasing the risk for developing lung cancer by 11 to 21 percent. The same goes for Canada: on April 24 of this year, Health Canada introduced a proposal for new guidelines on indoor radon gas that are four times more stringent than the previous ones. "Poor indoor air quality can pose significant health risks. This recommended guideline is an important step in informing Canadians about the number one cause of lung cancer after smoking,” said Tony Clement, the Health Minister.

    Radon gas can be reduced with HEPA and activated carbon filters.

    VOC Regulations affect Mainstream Manufacturers Indoor air quality is increasingly on the agendas of state lawmakers. In January, 2005, VOC restrictions were imposed in Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia, according to the Benjamin Moore website. The manufacturer of household paint now makes low VOC products of its own. Low and no-VOC products were previously the domain of marginal companies catering to a limited clientele. Now that more and more customers, and lawmakers, are becoming aware of indoor air quality issues, even mainstream companies are forced to take notice.

    AllerAir units are equipped to address most VOC concerns, including formaldehyde.

    Indoor Air Quality near Forest Fires and Wildfires People living in regions affected by wildfire and forest fires should pay close attention to the quality of their indoor air. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) specifically recommends air purifiers equipped with HEPA filters to keep indoor air as clean as possible. Those with respiratory disorders, allergies, asthma, and COPD will be particularly susceptible to respiratory discomfort due to the amount of smoke produced by burning plants and trees. Other air quality measures include refraining from: smoking, burning wood or candles, and vacuuming.

    AllerAir HEPA filters are DOP tested for quality. They are capable of trapping 99.97 percent of particles as small as 0.3 microns (1/233 the width of the average human hair), and their efficiency improves over time.

    Indoor Pool Fumes Chlorine fumes at an Indiana indoor pool probably caused interstitial lung disease in a 55-year old volunteer. J.C. Davis, an airline pilot by profession, was likely exposed to toxic levels of fumes when he worked at a computer near a floor vent over the course of a four-day swim meet. His lawsuit cites chloramines, chlorine by-products that arise with heavy pool use, as a probable cause for his disease. The pool’s builder admits that chloramines have been a problem since state ventilation standards for indoor pools were adjusted in 1993. The new standards save money at the expense of indoor air quality, asserts a local veteran swim coach. While previous methods brought in fresh outdoor air at a rate of 100 percent day and night and exhausted pent-up fumes, the new standards dictated a combination of dehumidifiers and energy-conserving vents working together, reducing the rate of fresh air intake to just 20 percent during the day, and zero at night.

    Mr. Davis’ doctors, after ruling out lung cancer, suspected chemical exposure as the likeliest cause of his disease, which may jeopardize his career.

    Indoor pool management teams in Indiana have found success in reducing chloramines with the aid of UV light, a popular option available in most AllerAir models.

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency warns that ozone is a harmful gas, advising the public to seek out proven methods of air cleaning, and Health Canada recommends that owners of ozone generators stop using them. Neither of the two federal health agencies has approved ozone generating air purifiers, though some manufacturers of ozone generators go so far as to falsely indicate that they have won government approval. Buyer beware!

    AllerAir air purifiers use proven methods to clean the air, and they generate no ozone.

Instead, all that is needed is a high-quality, Airpura air purifier to remove all of the art-related impurities from the air.||Every day, when an artist expresses their creativity, they are being exposed to a large number of chemicals and particles that are potentially harmful to their health. Each type of art has its very own distinct hazards. For example, there is turpentine with oil painting, rock and sand dust with sculpture, dust and lead with pottery and toluene with certain painting and printing tasks.

    To help reduce the harmful particles and chemicals in the air, and essentially save your health, you need to make sure that you have an air purifier in your art room. A standard air purifier won’t do the trick, as it isn’t designed to properly neutralize these odors, chemicals, and particles that are produced by your high quality art materials and supplies. Instead, you need a quality air purifier that is custom-tailored to the art industry to ensure that your short- and long-term health remains intact so that you continue doing what you love without the negative health effects.

    There are some art projects that use noxious chemicals, such as various oils and turpentine, that very strongly suggest that the artist go outdoors. Unhappily, many projects that use these very chemicals are also highly finicky, making the notion of leaving the controlled environment of the studio an impossibility if maximum results are a goal. The answer to this dilemma is an activated carbon air purification system.


    The Airpura C600 Air Purifier features an extra large activated carbon bed for maximum chemical adsorption.

    This was the AI’s response: >>One novel Torah thought is that our relationship with God is like a dance. In Jewish tradition, dancing is often associated with joy and celebration, and the Torah teaches that we are meant to serve God with joy and gladness of heart (Deuteronomy 28:47).

    In this metaphor, God is the lead dancer, and we are the partners. Just as in a dance, the lead dancer takes the lead and guides the partner in their movements, God guides us in our lives and helps us find our way. However, just as a partner must be receptive and responsive to the lead dancer's movements, we must also be open and responsive to God's guidance.

    When we dance, we move in harmony with our partner, and the dance becomes a beautiful expression of our relationship. Similarly, when we align ourselves with God's will and guidance, we can experience a deep sense of connection and harmony in our relationship with Him. By dancing with God, we can experience the joy and beauty of our relationship with the Divine.<<

Watch, listen and be inspired as Albert Handell paint the tranquil beauty of Mystery Falls. A recognized master of the prestigious, Oil Painters of America, Mr. Handell shares his knowledge and painting techniques from his beginning thoughts to his finished painting. Developing the composition from several photographs, he establishes the transparent washes and works up to the application of thick paint, a hallmark of his oil painting style. Mr. Handell discusses the colors that make up his palette and technique of painting thin to thick with clean color. See how he uses both brush and painting knife to achieve masses of harmonious color and the suggestion of detail. Thinking aloud as he works, Mr. Handell explains his concepts of artist depth, rushing water and the elements of nature such as rocks, cliffs, and trees. As the painting develops he discusses his process of orchestration and of applying the final touches. In the end, all elements of the painting are integrated as the mystery behind Mr. Handell's style is revealed.


    ALBERT HANDELL was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1937. At an early age, a favorite activity of his was drawing with chalks on the city streets. He began formal studies of drawing and anatomy at the age of sixteen. In 1954, he enrolled at the Art Students League of New York City to study drawing and anatomy with the late Louis Priscilla and the late Robert Ward Johnson, and later studied painting for two years with Frank Mason. From 1961 to 1965, Mr. Handell lived and traveled in Europe. In Paris, he painted independently in his own studio, working from the model at L'Ecole de la Grande Chaumiere and at the Louvre, copying the old masters.

    Since 1961, he has had over thirty one-man shows and has received over seventy prizes and awards. Albert Handle has received grants from the John F. and Anna Lee Stacy Foundation and from the Elizabeth T. Greenshields Foundation, Montreal Canada. His paintings are in numerous private and public collections and museums.

    Mr. Handel now exhibits with the Ventana Fine Art Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where, since 1987, he has had annual one-man shows.

    Albrecht Durer blended an introspective and humane style ishis art. This is displayed with brilliance in this compact and decisive Albrecht Durer: Image of a Master video documentary. Durer has a massive historical context embedded in his work. The video outlines his influence on art in Germany from his progressive Italian gothic art style.


    Albrecht Durer is highlighted in expansive detail in this Image of a Master video documentary. The video employs certain major elements of Albrecht Durer's career, notably including:

    Albrecht expanded the limits of German artistic expression with his Italian-based ideas. This has allowed him to be considered a creative genius as well as an artistic innovator in printing and publishing. He is sometimes considered the father of the Italian Renaissance, and this extraordinary video argues why.

This program takes the stereotypes that pop-culture has given it and illustrates the real process, biology, chemistry, and physics of criminology — not the version they show on TV. It digs deep into the responsibilities of forensic scientists, the skills they need, and the responsibilities they handle to help in a criminal investigation. Exploring the three main branches of forensic science — field science, lab science, and medical science — the program shows how a crime scene is preserved, defined and secured. The program also goes into detail about how DNA, cloth fibers, fingerprints, footprints, blood, spent ammunition, hair, and other forms of physical evidence are collected, kept uncontaminated, and studied; and how dentistry, autopsies, hand-writing recognition, toxicology, ballistics, and psychology play a key role. Although on TV forensic science is typically only linked to criminal investigations, forensic science is also used in the civil justice system, food industry, and environmental problems.

    Paper is amazing. It is thin and relatively fragile, yet most of the world’s wealth and much of the world’s fate are committed to it.

    Do a little considering.

    Consider your lot/land. If you own land, you probably don’t have it surrounded by armed soldiers to maintain your ownership, keeping people from tramping all over it or squatting on it. Instead, you have a piece of paper somewhere that says you own the land. So you don’t need the army. Consider your house. If you own the house you live in, you do not keep a band of off-duty police around the lot lines to help you keep possession. You rely solely on a specific piece of paper somewhere.

    Consider stocks and bonds. If all your wealth consists of investments in stocks and Government and other bonds, your wealth is simply a batch of pieces of paper somewhere.

    Consider the car dealer in a car purchase. If a $20,00 dollar car is purchased by check, the car dealer gives away a huge batch of chrome, engine, glass, speakers, radio, tape and CD player, tires, plush seats, and more. What he gets in return, is a small piece of paper.

    Consider your marriage. If you are married, people accept that fact -- not because they were at your wedding and saw it occur, but because you have a piece of paper somewhere that states you are married. In a manner of speaking, all marriages are paper-based.

    Consider crossing a Country’s border. If you try to cross a border between two countries, border officials will not necessarily believe you when you say you are you, but they will believe a piece of paper (visa/passport).

    Consider driving a car. You can drive a car if you have a certain piece of paper. If you are stopped and don’t have that piece of paper, an officer writes on and gives you another piece of paper, and you are in court.

    Consider a large insurance company. Huge insurance companies worth billions of dollars have no factories, merchandise, trucks, etc.. Their entire business is paper. All you have in return for the dollars you keep sending them regularly, is a few sheets of paper.

    Consider nations. Nations act toward each other according to what is said somewhere on a piece of paper. When there are differences, a piece of paper, a treaty, is the arbiter to determine what is right and what is wrong.

    Consider your personal identity. Your whole legal identity is not what you might say it is or claim it to be in a particular instance. Rather, it is what one or more pieces of paper in one or more places say it is.

    Looked at totally, everything from your personal identity, to your wealth, to relationships between entire nations, is on, and depends upon, paper.

    To have so much of our world, identities and possessions, liberties and fate committed to paper, is somewhat frightening.

    Paper is simply several layers of almost microscopic natural fibers held together by a natural bond. Should the standard Evil Genius of science fiction indeed discover a force that would universally destroy that bond, every piece of paper in the world would disintegrate into what would look like batches of dust. A breath would scatter the individual fibers in all directions. There would go personal identities, proof of ownership of wealth, agreements between nations, all insurance policies, etc. Chaos would be immeasurable. Anarchy would sprout like fertilized dandelions. Undoubtedly, probably sooner than later, spoils would go to the strongest, and/or slyest.

    An immediate and massive re-disposition of the world’s goods would occur.

    The individual pieces of the re-disposition would be a mosaic of comedy and tragedy. Uncomfortable scenarios scrolling across your personal screen would undoubtedly include the following:
  • Knowing there is no legal record of ownership, someone with force enough to do so would simply come and take possession of your house.
  • If you owned a fine piece of beautiful land, you would find people coming and erecting tents, shacks, or even houses on it -- squatters! Moats and piranhas would be at a premium.
  • Your cabin by the lake a couple hundred miles away, would almost certainly be lost to you.
  • If your color TV set were being repaired, you might not be able to get it back because no record would exist that you had ever brought a TV set into the repair shop? If you got it back, would you pay the repairman in coins, firewood, or what?
  • Great pieces of art would instantly disperse into a dusting of pigmented fibers.
  • Between neighbors, squabbles at lot lines would erupt, filling the air with vitriol and verbal mayhem from Maine to California. A thousand motorists looking at road maps along highways would be permanently lost.
  • Stopped by a police officer, you would be in trouble. The officer would still have a badge, but you wouldn’t have a driver’s license. On the other hand, the officer wouldn’t have a piece of paper on which to write a ticket.
  • Unless the address of your favorite aunt in a far away city had been memorized, you would probably lose all touch with her. There would be no phone book to help you call.
  • You could change your age at will.
  • A million babies would be instantly un-diapered.
  • You would reach into your pocket for the roll of hundred-dollar bills and come up with -- nothing.
  • If all of this gave you a king-sized double migraine attack, you would have no prescription for a pain-killer.

    With an instant disintegration of all paper, the whole world would be violently re-arranged. Princes might become paupers, and strong paupers might become princes.

    Undoubtedly, the world’s most feared potential weapon is development of a scientific formula that could instantly and universally destroy the natural bond that holds cellulose fibers together as paper.

    Whether or not paper will continue in its ascendancy, and for how long, can be answered only by time. Paper itself knocked out the milleniums-long reigning papyrus. The people, land, papyrus plant, Egyptian economic and cultural power, related to papyrus’ supremacy in recording and communicating, were all viciously and totally affected. What environmental changes occurred because of the total absence of a single papyrus plant where previously huge plantations had flourished, can only be guessed.

    Similarly today, the demise of paper would cause huge adjustments and massive re-jiggering of industry and people, not just along a Nile River, but globally. Paper is global. It has massive effects worldwide on forests (not only their use, but also their propagation), rivers and lakes. Paper is a capital-intensive industry. Billions of people’s and Governments’ dollars are fated with the paper industry. If the market for paper suddenly, or even less precipitously over several years, dried up, the "capital intensive" financial structure would self-destruct. People in whole regions such as Wisconsin’s Fox Cities, and all those globally engaged in the production of raw materials and chemicals, manufacture, distribution, and sales, centered on paper, would have lives convulsively disrupted.

    Undoubtedly, paper is the core product of the universe.

    Will paper be replaced? Not easily. The rule of "most suitable and most readily available" (which caused papyrus’ demise when paper came) still determines the global choice of a recording/communicating material. In recent decades, plastic as film in many different versions (dubbed by some as "plaper"), mounted a challenge. It has seriously ebbed if not totally waned. Currently observers are titillated totally by the sparring of paper and electronics, represented by computers. Will recording and communication ever be done totally by electrons arranged on hard drives, discs, and tapes?

    Personally, as I stand here watching reams of paper being spewed out by printers attached to computers, I doubt it. But seeing the outcome (or whether paper ever suffers papyrus’ fate) is really worth staying alive for.

    Stay healthy -- see your doctor (man or woman) once a year.

    Allan Houser is a household name in the sculpting community. Witness the breadth of his output in the Allan Houser Apache Sculptor video. He carves a masterful bronze head in immediate detail, then moves to a marble face sculpture that dazzles and entrances viewers in its overt and encapsulating beauty of detail. 


    The astute sculptor Allan Houser magnifies his creative style for viewers in the Allan Houser, Apache Sculptor video. Houser tackles two domineering projects; a bronze statue head for the Shidoni Foundation and a face marble sculpture. 

    Houser is famous for his stoic depictions of Navajo families in stone, metal and bronze design. He expertly carves world-renowned statues to be admired by thousands. He harnesses his own creative spirit to bring forward the best in realistic portrayals of people, including the Chiricahua Apache. Houser won international respect after the prominence of his Navajo work, and has since detailed keen observations murals and paintings as well.

    Filtering processes are essential in homes and work places across the globe. These advanced filtering systems feature filters, pre-filters, and micro filters. Pre-filters like the pre-filter-4000-8-pk are used to remove the large particulates from the air prior to more advanced filtration. The process starts with the removal of large particles that float around in the air. These pre-filters remove large pieces of pollution to make the further filtering of air possible by other filters. After the large particles are removed, air can move on to the next filter stages to make for air that is well filtered and perfect for breathing and working in. Without pre-filters, more advanced filters like HEPA and micro filters would not be able to process the particulates that circulate in most air.

    There is one important task is assigned to every air filter. That assignment is to protect the environment. Many filters fail in this area, because they are poorly constructed, but not a HEPA.


    Keeping the living environment free from toxins and airborne allergens may have been a problem in the past, but it isn’t now. Vacuum cleaners are designed to remove dust, dirt and germs from the environment, just as air purifiers are designed to remove toxins from the air. What prevents most germs and allergens from being eliminated is effective air filters. Air filters are manufactured to perform specific jobs. One important task is assigned to every air filter. That assignment is to protect the environment. Many filters fail in this area, because they are poorly constructed.

    The 5000 MCS HEPA filter is a unique and well constructed filter that has gained the popularity and respect of many industries. The HEPA filter is more than 99% effective in pulling toxins, and allergens from the atmosphere. Hospitals, nursing homes, power plants and educational institutions all rely on the on the quality performance of the HEPA filter.  The HEPA filter traps dust mites, mold, pollen, and animal hair, even if the particles are 0.3 micron in size.  Now that’s impossible to see, without a microscope and very impressive.

    Designed to pull noxious chemicals, fumes, and microbes directly out of the air, the AllerAir line of air filters features activated carbon derived from coconut shells. Despite its great efficacy when up against various pollutants, some compounds, particularly sticky oils and tars, that reduce the lifetime of these filters very, very quickly by coating the active surface area. As a result, protecting these filters with a tar-capturing pre-filter should be a priority for those who wish to extend the operational life of these particularly expensive filters.

    The AllerAir line of air filters is designed to draw noxious chemicals of all sorts and even microbes out of the air with its activated carbon filters derived from the shells of coconuts. There are some compounds out there, however, that drastically reduce the lifetime of these filters. Tar being one of those compounds, it is incredibly important to add AllerAir tar-trapping prefilters to the intake of your filter to prolong the operational life of its much more expensive activated carbon filter.


    This is a replacement filter for the AllerAir 5000 seriers Air Purifier machine sold separately.

    This fine product from the AllerAir line offers the following features.

    • Acts as a prefilter to trap tar and other sticky compounds before they have a chance to clog up the main filter and reduce its efficacy before its time
    • Coarse weave allows air to be drawn through readily, thus allowing for maximum filtration efficiency even when protecting from tar
    • 1.5 - 2.5 month product lifespan
    • Excellent at the filtration of the fumes and oils found in hair salons
    • Pack of 10 filters allows for 2-3 years of protection, exactly the lifetime of the main filter

    Working in a studio exposes the artist to a number of nasty chemicals. Some of these can get into the air, then into the artist's lungs where degeneration occurs over months and years of exposure. Though these problems can be minimized and even eliminated with an AllerAir filter featuring active carbon for the removal of these toxins from the air, the filter itself simply takes the degeneration instead of the artist's lungs. Eventually, one needs replaced. Thankfully, the filter is far cheaper.

    Many times in your work as an artist, you create dust, such as when you are working with pastel materials. With the lingering pastel dust in the air, you run the risk of contaminating future projects. On top of all that, and even worse, you end up coughing half the time you are working in your studio since such materials have no natural way to escape an enclosed space. 

    Keep your air purifier near your easel, preferably directly under it. Make sure to keep your air purifier even more effective when you replace the filter every two to three months. The Pre-Filter-6000-4-pk Air Purifier is the ideal way to get you through the better part of a year in your art projects.

    Dispute resolutions have long been part of the legal system. This documentary takes a close look at the ways in which Australian courts implement these processes. It shows that when someone is involved in a court case that leads to a dispute resolution both parties involved in the dispute actually benefit from a resolution being reached.

    The various topics related to this issue that are discussed in the documentary include arbitration, mediation performed by a third party and legal negotiations. The most common types of court cases where alternative dispute resolution is used are corporate and domestic disputes. The process of carrying out alternative dispute resolutions in these types of cases is discussed in the documentary. There is also an assessment that outlines the ways in which dispute resolutions are effective and the level of effectiveness is also discussed. Much of the information in this DVD is factual information pertaining to how and why the cost of an alternative dispute resolution varies. In many cases this is the most cost efficient type of resolution that can be reached between two parties.

    In addition to the DVD itself those who purchase it are given exclusive access to online educational resources to help viewers learn more about alternative dispute resolution. These resources can be viewed online or printed out for an individual's convenience in studying them.
