Discover Nature: Great Blue Herons Begin Fledging

7/16/2019
More
Discover nature this week along Missouri streams and bottomland woods, and listen for the low, harsh vocalizations of great blue herons. Herons nest in colonies – or rookeries – near water. These rookeries can contain hundreds of bulky stick nests which may be used over multiple years. Herons are mostly monogamous during a season, and each pair incubates 3-to-6 eggs. In mid-July, fledgling herons begin to leave the nest, learning to fly and feed themselves. At first, fledgling birds will not...

7/16/2019
More
In 1932 and 1933 Joseph Stalin deliberately starved between three and ten million residents of Ukraine – no one knows the number for sure – and he tried to keep it secret.

So the pollsters recently fired by President Trump because internal polling showed Trump was behind in several battleground states should...

Engagement with Robert Greene (BISBEE '17)

7/11/2019
More
In the world of nonfiction filmmaking, the idea of "engagement" is often raised as a key part of the process. How does a film engage the audience, or with its subjects, what conversations does it start, or augment? For Robert Greene, whose film "Bisbee '17" screened at the 2018 True/False Film Festival, engagement offers an opportunity to counter the exploitative aspect of documentary filmmaking. And in the case of "Bisbee '17" it meant going back to the eponymous town year after year to...
