Flash of generosity: Arviat Nunavut youth group receives four digital cameras

Flash of generosity: Arviat Nunavut youth group receives four digital cameras | MediaMentor | Scoop.it

[excerpt] Jamie Bell of Nunavut Arctic College said members of the Arviat youth media and research team were pumped when informed a pair of visiting professional photographers were going to deliver a special workshop for them earlier this month.

Bell said Louise Abbott and Niels Jensen were working on Nunavut Tunngavik Inc.'s Cultural Resources Inventory Project in Arviat, documenting historical and archeological sites, when they agreed to conduct the workshop.

He said it came as a huge and wonderful surprise to learn the two had spoken with Sony Canada and that the company had donated four 20-megapixel Alpha DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) cameras and lenses to the Arviat group.

Northern_Clips's insight:

JHR (Journalists for Human Rights) is Canada’s leading media development organization. Our goal - to make everyone in the world fully aware of their rights - is as unique as it is powerful.

Since JHR’s founding in 2002 the organization has worked tirelessly to strengthen independent media in sub-Saharan Africa by building the capacity of local journalists to report ethically and effectively on human rights and good governance issues. JHR’s work ensures the media can play its rightful role as a referee between state and civil society.

The more people are aware and free to discuss human rights, the more they will hold their governments to account, leading to improved public services, less corruption, better economic opportunities and stronger democratic processes.

Since 2002, JHR has:

Run programs in 17 Sub-Saharan countries.Started Chapters at over 50 universities and high schools internationally.Trained over 12,000 professional African journalists and students.Engaged over 5,000 Canadian student Chapter members.Partnered with over 250 African media organizations.Reached an estimated 50 million Africans with human rights information through our local partners.

How Edward Snowden could change the face of journalism

Published on Jul 3, 2013

The name Edward Snowden has become infamous due to an article released by The Guardian about the National Security Agency's spy program known as Prism. Snowden exposed how the surveillance system monitored Internet communications for millions of Americans and gathered the metadata on all phone calls in the US and now many are questioning the right to a free and open press. Many believe that Glenn Greenwald's story could change way journalists do their jobs. Craig Aaron, president and CEO of Free Press, weighs in.

#SANTO 7.13.15. #GMO MOVIE

#SANTO 7.13.15. #GMO MOVIE | MediaMentor | Scoop.it
Movie "Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people." - Kissinger
Northern_Clips's insight:

'...After being hounded by Monsanto backers, blocked from posting about it on Facebook and its content filtered through various software on the Internet, Everest Edge Pictures prevailed against the odds and will move forward in the creation of “SANTO 7. 13. 15.,” a sci-fi movie to depict the world’s future from the lingering threats and effects of GMOs. The film will reveal how Monsanto, the biotech giant, has effected the world’s populations and expose the real threats GMOs pose to the Earth.

Started by Rob Everest, creator of many award-winning commercials and producer of his first independent feature film, “American Success,” “SANTO 7. 13. 15” is his answer to Monsanto’s careless regard for the Earth and a possible “game changer in human history.” The controversy surrounding Monsanto and their money-backed bribing of politicians, buying of lawmakers votes and hiding the truth about GMO from the public is the story Everest is determined to tell the world. But instead of making it a documentary, he decided it was imperative to make the film a “Dystopian Futuristic” movie for the “better of humanity.”

Future of Mankind

“Santo 7. 13. 15.” tells the story of a global biotech company, Santo, who created “strains of super food to feed the masses” in an overpopulated world in the year 2045, which has caused food intolerance, sterility and many autoimmune disorders. Because of their creation of super food and with poverty and hunger a “pandemic,” Santo is privileged to make “genetic enhancements to humans” in order for them to continue to feed and survive on these super foods, but any human DNA modification made to that human will become Santo’s property.

The film follows the story of Max, a man that convinces his wife to allow Santo to make modifications to her genetics to cure their infertility problem. But when their daughter was born disabled and recalled to “Deconstruction Camp” where she dies, his wife disowns him and he is left alone in the world to fend for another child’s life who will too be recalled if he reveals the inequalities and injustices Santo has posed on the world.. ..."
