When Kevin Wilson Jr., a graduate student at NYU, set out to make a short film last year for a class, he had one mission: to share the story of Emmett Till, a black 14-year-old who was brutally murdered for allegedly whistling at a white woman in Mississippi in 1955. Wilson had never anticipated that his completed assignment, "My Nephew Emmett," which tells Till's story from the perspective of his great uncle, Mose Wright, would put him in the running for an Oscar. Wilson, who says he's busy trying to finish his thesis, could be adding "Academy Award winner" to his resume before he completes his Master of Fine Arts degree. "This was an exercise we used to practice our craft, so I never thought that assignment would get to the point where it's nominated for an Academy Award," he says. "It's shocking." 2018 Oscar nominations: "The Shape of Water" leads with 13 nods It's a dream come true in many ways. Wilson says he's excited that the Academy is recognizing Emmett Till's story … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Kevin Wilson Jr. keeps Emmett Till’s legacy alive in his Oscar-nominated short film, “My Nephew Emmett”
The agency projects that polar bears during that time will lose 42 percent of the Arctic range they need to live in during summer in the Polar Basin when they hunt and breed. Polar bears depend on sea ice as a platform for hunting seals, their primary food. But the sea ice is decreasing due to climate change. "It's that declining sea ice that appears to be driving the results in our models," said U.S. Geological Survey scientist Steven Amstrup, the lead author of the new studies. "As the sea ice goes, so goes the polar bear." Scientists do not hold out much hope that the buildup of carbon dioxide and other industrial gases blamed for heating the atmosphere like a greenhouse can be turned around in time to help the polar bears anytime soon. "Despite any mitigation of greenhouse gases, we are going to see the same amount of energy in the system the next 20, 30 or 40 years," Mark Myers, the USGS director, said. Greenland and Norway have the most polar bears, while a quarter of them live … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Scientists: Most Polar Bears Dead By 2050
Last night after seeing a report on the news about our last major factory in the US that makes regular light bulbs (incandescent) closing down and 200 American workers losing their jobs, I did some research. First of all, it was our own government that caused these 200 US workers to lose their jobs in the middle of one of our biggest recessions, it was also our own government that caused more outsourcing of American jobs, considering that almost all CFL's (Florescent bulbs) are made overseas, mainly China. It was all started with a 2007 energy conservation measure that was passed by Congress; it set standards essentially banning all ordinary light bulbs in the US by 2014. In many people's minds, our government forcing us to be more energy efficient is a good thing, for me, I don't buy into it. There is only 1 light fixture in my home that uses CFL's and the ONLY reason I even use them there is because it is an old fixture and it burns out too many … [Read more...] about Keep Energy Saving out of MY House.
