Jeremiah: An Award Winning Documentary

Jeremiah: An Award Winning Documentary

Jeremiah winner of the Edward R. Murrow National Award for Best News Documentary at the 2016 Emmys ceremony was written and directed by Mark Fastoso and produced by Alabama Public Television. Jeremiah first aired in November of 2015.

About the film:
July 18, 1965, U.S. Navy Commander Jeremiah Denton took off from the aircraft carrier USS Independence leading a 28-plane mission over the city of Thanh Hoa in North Vietnam. Denton’s plane was hit by anti-aircraft fire during the attack, and for the next eight long years, he would battle the North Vietnamese as a prisoner of war in the infamous Hanoi Hilton. As the senior American officer at the prison, Denton was forced by the North Vietnamese to participate in a press conference and told he must say the POWs were being treated well. Looking haggard, weak and beaten from the severe punishment he had undergone, Denton took advantage of that opportunity however, to send a secret message home, blinking out the letters T-O-R-T-U-R-E in Morse code.

This is a free offering in honor of our Veterans.

Bioblitz--Come be a scientist

This two day event begins with an introduction to the BIOBLITZ!

Nature is everywhere!  Plants and animals are what people notice the most often, but fungi, slime molds, bacteria, and "protozoans" can be incredibly abundant and diverse as well. This diversity of organisms is termed Biodiversity. My name is Jonathan Carpenter. I am a biodiversity and Bioblitz specialist. In short, a Bioblitz is a citizen-science driven event that focuses on a location's biodiversity. Education, science, and community are integral to the Bioblitz concept. A Bioblitz is for everyone, from school children to teachers to land managers to taxonomists. It is for anyone who has a stake in the nature world - and indeed that's all of us. Bring yourself, your family, your friends, your enthusiasm, your curiosity. Photographers welcome.  We will be documenting all forms of life that we find and recording our findings on iNaturalist, a citizen-science database hosted by California Academy of Sciences.
