Cultural niche documentary filmmaker Les Blank dies at 77 | TheCelebrityCafe.com

After introducing America to documentaries on such disparate topics as garlic and gap-toothed women, filmmaker Les Blank died Sunday in Berkeley, Calif. at the age of 77.
Maurvika Patnekar's insight:

LES BLANK: a documentary filmmaker, although he is also a creative artiste  who is expressing and developing his talent in filmmaking as a medium, he also seems like a cultural explorer in heart which reflects what he likes doing, the kind of films he loves, etc.

Cultivating Empathy by Bicycle Travel: The Kedah Bicycle Path Project

Cultivating Empathy by Bicycle Travel: The Kedah Bicycle Path Project | Who is a cultural explorer? | Scoop.it
About Us We are Annika Wachter (26) from Germany and Roberto Gallegos (29) from Mexico. We are founders of Tasting Travels, a project that seeks to promote: Bicycle Travel as a Model to  Cultivate Empathy. 

We are currently travelling by bicycle and promoting this idea along the way. We would like to share the wonders of bike travel with the world and help other people to plan their own. We do this by writing about our experiences in our blog, posting articles about people, places and their culture in our website and giving live presentations in schools. We are moved by the strong believe that bike travel is an excellent way to cultivate empathy in our world, not only towards human beings but to other living species. We hope you have fun browsing through our site and we will be happy to hear from you. We look forward to receiving your questions and reading your comments. We are at your service.

Cultivating Empathy by Bicycle Travel

 

So then our idea evolved to promoting bicycle travel as a means to strengthen social empathy. After a year or so with the project, and after more researching and asking specialists, we realized that we could further simplify our mission even more. So after two years and a bit of being pleasantly surprised by the world we live in and the experience we have as bike riders, we decided to entitle our project:

 

We definitely did not re-invent the wheel or something like that, in fact we found even more and more people cyclists and non-cyclists concerned with the idea of spreading the power of empathy in the world. Just to mention a very few– Doc. Jeremy Rifkin, Doc. Roman Krznaric, our friends at Two Wheel Travel, Edwin Rutsch, Biciclown, Pablo Garcia, World Biking, Travelling Two etc.–all of them, and in their own way, are exploring empathy and sharing it in their websites following their particular vocation. Some of them are renowned scientists and others are regular Joe´s like me with a belief in empathy and its capability to make this world a better place.
