Disasters are, most basically, terrible, tragic, grievous, and no matter what positive side effects and possibilities they produce, they are not to be desired. But by the same measure, those side effects should not be ignored because they arise amid devastation.
Most social change is chosen—you want to belong to a co-op, you believe in social safety nets or community supported agriculture. But disaster doesn’t sort us out by preferences; it drags us into emergencies that require we act, and act altruistically, bravely, and with initiative in order to survive or save the neighbors, no matter how we vote or what we do for a living.

As TV2’s video “All That We Share” opens, Danes file quietly onto a soundstage, stepping into outlined areas on the floor — areas meant to define them. “The High Earners” versus “Those Just Getting By.” “Those We Trust” versus “Those We Try To Avoid.” Lifelong Danes, versus those new to Denmark. Divisions you will find not just in Denmark, but in any country on Earth.
However, a man begins to ask questions:
“Who in this room was the class clown?”
“Who are stepparents?”
“How many of you love to dance?”
Quickly, the “Us versus Them” narrative falls apart. People begin to step out of their so-called defining boxes…

Rob Greenfield has a simple idea… that people are good and the world is a good place.
So he decided to put his idea to the ultimate test by flying one way to a far off place with no money, no credit card, no cellphone, not even a toothbrush. Just the clothes on his back and a passport. Mainstream media portrays the world as a dangerous place, a place that you should fear and Rob is out to prove them wrong.
He landed in Panama City, Panama 4,000 miles and 7 countries from his home in San Diego, California with no camera of his own and made this film using the cameras of people he met along the way…

Virtual Choir 1
Virtual Choir 1 ‘Lux Aurumque’ was launched in March 2010 and featured online performances by 185 singers. It received over 1 million hits in the first two months of its release, and has since been watched by nearly 5 million people.
It began in May 2009 as a simple experiment in social media, when Britlin Losee – a fan of Eric’s music – recorded a video of herself singing ‘Sleep’ and shared it on YouTube. After watching the video, Eric responded by sending a call out to his online fans to purchase Polyphony’s recording of ‘Sleep’, record themselves singing along to it, and upload the result.
Virtual Choir 2
Featuring Eric’s composition ‘Sleep’, Virtual Choir 2 was released in April 2011 and was met with a staggering response, incorporating 2052 videos from 58 countries and from all walks of life, including 9 year olds to senior citizens. The official launch took place at Paley Center for Media in New York. The event was webcast worldwide on WQXR and posted on YouTube that evening.

Decades ago, famed Australian ocean experts and cinematographers Valerie Taylor and her husband Ron began swimming the oceans, studying marine life.
Ron captured hours of footage of Valerie sharing special bonds with different aquatic species, but one of the more incredible moments was her unique relationship with a spotted moral eel named Honey.
When the two first met in 1974 at Honey’s home near Banda Island, Indonesia, the eel was very timid around Valerie.
But after a few years, something changed.
“She didn’t just come out. She swam around me, she swam between my legs, she nuzzled my face, and I thought this is amazing,” Valerie says in the video posted by the Central Florida Aquarium Society. “And after that, we have been great friends, and now when she sees me coming… and I might not see her for a year (once I didn’t see her for three years!), this thing comes out across the sand, and comes over to me and hugs and loves… there is no doubt in my mind that eel really likes me.”…
