The greed of health insurance providers and big pharma will kill them -- which is ok because up until now their greed has been killing us. [at the rate of 30,000+ needless deaths among uninsured folks, pre - ACA, and about 10,000 now in the states blocking ACA.] Aetna pulling out of ACA in 11-15 states will probably signal the end of the current healthcare system... not ending ACA to go back to where we were before but rather to go to full-on single payer.
Well, one of my short films shut down a festival in Beijing because the content was controversial ... this should not offend anyone. An animation segment from the movie ANALYSIS that I did with my friend Pierre DeCelles http://pierredecelles.deviantart.com/ and Crashdown Studio http://crashdownstudio.com/ here is the animation clip https://vimeo.com/121440154
Banned in Beijing. When a book was too controversial, it might proudly state on the cover "banned in Boston" so it appears, I have encountered similar censorship. My romance short film Melon Harvest was too hot and steamy for Beijing. After my film was showed, police shut down the short film festival that was screening it. You can see it here. While a gladly accept the laurel of BANNED IN BEIJING, I feel sorry for those film makers that did not get screened after the authorities shut down the event.
I have the honor that one of my short films, 瓜熟时节 [Melon Harvest], was selected for this event in Beijing tomorrow. For those that can't make the event and want to squander 12 minutes of their precious time, I offer you this link https://vimeo.com/2635886
Fastlights was a great help to me providing great service and support in shooting a narrative movie-style music video in Massachusetts. They provided incredible value and assistance and are really nice folks to work with. I do not usually endorse any business but these guys really did go all out to support an independent project.
If you are shooting in New England, they are centrally located in western Ma. to service the region and have a network of locations throughout the region to serve any production.
When people are complaining about the candidates in the 2016 mud slinging match, remember, we had the chance to have Bernie

The law that was made in 1946 to inform you where you food originated may be repealed. Hope y'all like your steak Chinese or Brazilian. Those Chinese or South American meat packing facilities do not have to worry about pesky USDA or FDA standards and the farms also do not need to meet standards.
Scary...read the charts, if you are not wealthy then be scared! Lets totally wipe out the middle class in this country. It says he wants to eliminate the estate tax. Google what the "estate tax" really is then ask yourself who it benefits. Also check what devastating results it would have on national deficit and debt. He is clearly at war with the middle class. thanks to the other Richard Trombly for the original post
