    About Stop the Bleed

    While more than 1 million people have now been trained to STOP THE BLEED®, that’s just a start. Our goal is to train 200 million. Why? Because the purpose of the STOP THE BLEED® campaign is to make our nation more resilient by better preparing the public to save lives if people nearby are severely bleeding. This preparation is being done by raising awareness and teaching people how to learn three quick actions to control serious bleeding.

    10-02-20 with Director Nick Quested Blood on the Wall National Geographic Documentary

    About Blood on the Wall National Geographic Documentary

    The film primarily follows two parties hoping to make it past the US border. There’s Ludy, a seventeen-year-old girl with no family who has been a rape victen in Guatemala and is traveling with her boyfriend in the caravan for protection. The other focus is on a mother named Sara and her large family of kids ranging from teenagers to a toddler. Their long and perilous journey is chronicled as they desperately fight for their survival.

    This two-hour documentary juxtaposes their stories against background information of how life south of the border has evolved into its current hostile state and the USA’s involvement in it. The film is somewhat bookended by a heroin runner in Arizona, a US resident who isn’t nervous every time she goes through border patrol on her way in and out. The history of how heroin and crack production became a way of life and a source of power is well documented throughout the film.

    09-10-20 Author Dr. Enric Sala - The Nature of Nature

    About The Nature of Nature

    Enric Sala wants to change the world--and in this compelling book, he shows us how. Once we appreciate how nature works, he asserts, we will understand why conservation is economically wise and essential to our survival.Here Sala, director of National Geographic's Pristine Seas project (which has succeeded in protecting more than 5 million sq km of ocean), tells the story of his scientific awakening and his transition from academia to activism--as he puts it, he was tired of writing the obituary of the ocean. His revelations are surprising, sometimes counterintuitive: More sharks signal a healthier ocean; crop diversity, not intensive monoculture farming, is the key to feeding the planet.Using fascinating examples from his expeditions and those of other scientists, Sala shows the economic wisdom of making room for nature, even as the population becomes more urbanized. In a sober epilogue, he shows how saving nature can save us all, by reversing conditions that led to the coronavirus pandemic and preventing other global catastrophes. With a foreword from Prince Charles and an introduction from E. O. Wilson, this powerful book will change the way you think about our world--and our future.
