"The Invisible Wounds of Exile": Stones in the Sun Haitian director Patricia Benoît: Interview
Liza Béar: I assume you have lived in Haiti at one point.
Patricia Benoît: I left as a child in the sixties.
LB: How old were you when you left?
LB: Did you go back a lot?
PB: I’ve been back, yeah. My family was exiled, but then about…13 years after leaving I went back for a first visit and [since then] I’ve been back a lot. I’ve done a lot of work in Haiti. I’ve done documentation work with grassroots groups. I’ve done theater in a school with kids in a sort of very disadvantaged neighborhood, and kids who were not in school.
The story that I’m telling had been brewing in my mind for a very long time. And it’s a story that I felt I could only tell through fiction, because I wanted to talk about something that was…very intimate. And I don’t think I could have done that in a documentary.
One of the things that I wanted to talk about was the invisible wounds of exile. And that’s something that I’ve lived with ever since I was little. There’s that initial trauma that sends people out of their countries of origin. And I wanted to look at how that trauma, the pain of that trauma sort of radiates, in small and large ways. And how it affects people in their intimate lives.
LB: Pain is something that everyone wants to forget. They don’t want to keep it in the social and civil society.

Everything is a Remix, So Steal Like An Artist SXSW Austin, TX 3/10/12 - While many have described the new world of remix culture where “nothing is original,” few have provided practical advice for those of us who find ourselves living and making things in it. Join filmmaker Kirby Ferguson (creator of the video series EVERYTHING IS A REMIX) and artist Austin Kleon (author of NEWSPAPER BLACKOUT and STEAL LIKE AN ARTIST) as they show clips from Kirby's work and discuss how one best goes about being a creator in the digital age. Questions Answered: 1. What are the basic elements of creativity? 2. What is the line between inspiration and outright plagiarism? 3. How can creators best share their work on the web without getting ripped off? 4. Is it really true that nothing is original? 5. Why is “make what you like” better advice than “make what you know”?

Cow Farts: The connection between Climate Change and a meat eating diet- an interview with Maneka Ghandi
INTERVIEW: Maneka Ghandi on the connection between Climate Change and a meat eating diet by Kombatrock
UN negotiators are in Durban, South Africa this week debating the complex issue of reducing the world’s CO2 emissions in order to slow down global climate change. Yet there is little discussion inside the UN talks of reducing another leading greenhouse gas: methane. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, Methane is over 20 times more effective in trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide over a 100-year period. Much of the world’s livestock including sheep and cattle generate methane as a by-product of digestion. On average, each dairy cow belches and farts out 500 litres of methane daily accounting for 16% of the world’s annual methane emissions. The 60 million methane tons that cattle generate annually is almost one fifth of all global methane emissions. Maneka Ghandi, former Indian Minister of Environment and Forests and a current member of the Parliament of India is in Durban asking UN officials why they are not considering switching to a vegan diet as a legitimate way to combat global warming.
