Coral Rekindling Venus a film by Lynette Walworth.
Imagine global co-operation for a global problem. Imagine corals as the barometer of climate change. Imagine we are the pivot point. Imagine rekindling Venus.
My intent is to leave the audience with a sense of wonder for the complexity of the coral community and a deep-felt longing to see it survive.
What is apparent when you watch the film is the remarkable survival mechanisms already at play in the community of coral reefs, mechanisms that will be put to the test in the coming years. We might see ourselves as two different communities interconnected in our own survival.

Graphene Makes Water Purification More Efficient
The availability of fresh water is dwindling in many parts of the world, a problem that is expected to grow with populations. One promising source of potable water is the world’s virtually limitless supply of seawater, but so far desalination technology has been too expensive for widespread use.
Now, MIT researchers have come up with a new approach using a different kind of filtration material: sheets of graphene, a one-atom-thick form of the element carbon, which they say can be far more efficient and possibly less expensive than existing desalination systems.

That stuff might be annoying, but at least living there automatically makes you famous.
Tomorrow “The Amazing Spider-Man” will hit theaters and people will finally be able to answer the question no one was asking: Is Spider-Man better played by Tobey Maguire or Andrew Garfield? Whoever emerges the superior spider, either of them would be better than these 24 would-be Spider-Men who are too fat, skinny, sad, depraved, or out of place to wear the suit well.
