The American church is known for it’s extremeity’s especially those against homosexuality. The church has been actively involved in the anti-gay movement since at least 1991. One of Westboro’s followers estimated that the church spends $250,000 a year on picketing. They attack homosexuals, soldiers, and Jews among other groups with their pickets and protests. There doesn’t seem to be any real aim or goal for their protests, except to gain attention.
Canada, and the United Kingdom has banned anyone who attends/has attended the Westbro Baptist Church from entering their country. Though, Canada/UK understands that physically harming someone is worse than emotionally harming someone. But, both should have the same penelties. Canada/UK believes that preventing the Westboro church members from entering their counrty, they prevent physical/emotional harm on their people.
He’s an Indian. He hunts wild animals, either with his bow-and-arrow or trapping them in a spiked bottom. Brazilian officials have concluded that he’s the last survivor of an uncontacted tribe. He was discovered unclothed, and appeared to be in his mid-30s and always armed with a bow-and-arrow. Their encounters always happen as tense standoffs, ending in frustration or tragedy. On one occasion, the Indian delivered a message to an agent who pushed contact with the man too far, which resulted with an arrow to the chest.
They first became aware of his existence nearly 15 years ago. People have launched numerous expiditions trying to create contact with him. Ranching and Logging on all sides is dangerous for the survival of this man, because he is stuck in the middle of all sides being destroyed.
Personally, I think that the attempts of contact are unfair to the man who has known nothing but the forest and the rivers he hunts in. To think that, that is the only thing he has ever known, his tribe and his land. Not knowing whether or not there is other life anywhere else and attacking him and trying to make contact confusing him, and his views on the world.
On the heels of recent Humane Society undercover investigations into animals, The Humane Society uncovers the wrong doings of the companies that most people retrieve meat from. Here are some ideas of what these companies do to the animals that you, and your family eat:

Director Eliot Rausch is leading a new generation of young filmmakers with his distinct documentary style that pulls heartstrings and reveals humanity in each of his subjects.

Rausch is also busy working on his latest documentary, LIMBO, immersing himself in the lives of young people affected by the Dream Act (development, relief, and education for alien minors), capturing the raw and heartfelt American experience, as only he does best.

You shall not pass!
This is the sequence from Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. This technique compresses every frame from a movie into a single image. Pictured above is one example. If you think about the dominant colors throughout the movie, it’s actually possible to follow the story through the image. Choice of color in a movie can say a lot about what’s going on in a scene. It sets the mood, changes the tone, indicates a change in point of view.
