Pacific Rim Uprising at East LA Rising

Posted by on 12:00 pm in Consciousness, Culture, Events, Featured, Film & TV | 0 comments

Pacific Rim Uprising at East LA Rising

The kids of the “East L.A. Rising”, formerly known as the Boys and Girls Club of East LA, were in for a big treat this past Tuesday. CSU Long Beach Robotics Professor Walter Martinez Marconi and Barboza Space Center founder Bob Barboza hosted an interactive and informative robots themed special event base on Universal Pictures’ upcoming film, Pacific Rim Uprising, directed by Steven S. DeKnight, coming out Friday March 23rd. “It’s not only fun, exciting, and inspiring for our kids to be exposed to robotics”, stated Anna Araujo the Executive Director of East L.A. Rising, “it’s our responsibility to nuture our kids’ interest in the sciences. Unfortunately, low income kids have significantly less internet and technological access, as well as exposure to these types of special events that help them correlate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineeribg, and Math) education with career opportunities. Access to technology is becoming a civil rights issue of our time”, claimed Araujo, “and these type of events are vital to ensure our kids will be well prepared for tomorrow world”.   The highly anticipated sequel, Uprising, flashes forward 10 years from the first Pacific Rim and follows the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous “Kaiju”. Young Jaeger pilots have only known a world of chaos and Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld. But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father’s legacy with his estranged sister, Mako Mori, who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war. As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to reunite together in a global uprising against the force of extinction. During Tuesday’s special event, the kids of the East L.A. Rising were given the opportunity to build, “pilot”, and compete with robots they constructed, similarly (in theory) to the human-piloted robot of the film’s main character, Jake Pentecost (Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ John Boyega). Even though the importance of STEM, was the highlight throughout the event, kids were also encouraged to discover their passions and to pursue their dreams, “you can achieve anything you set your mind to, all you need is perseverance”. This is fitting advice from Professor Martinez Marconi, a proud Latino immigrant who fell in love with robots after watching Star Wars back in 1977.  He migrated to the US from Honduras to pursue his dream of learning robotic technology.  His passion for robots fueled him to earn several degrees and certifications in engineering. He has dedicated his life to researching and making robots, something that he sees as “creating intelligent art”.   As an industry expert, Professor Martinez Marconi is often consulted by the entertainment industry for television shows and films, such as the upcoming Pacific Rim Uprising. It is not lost on Professor Martinez Marconi how special it is that he is a robotics consultant to the entertainment industry (particularly films) which was such an inspiring influence in his life. Besides the great robotic technology and fun groundbreaking special effects, the film also offers a...

2018’s Happiest Cities in America

2018’s Happiest Cities in America

The U.S. Declaration of Independence speaks about the “pursuit of happiness” as a universal right Everyone gets joy from different things, whether it’s family, friends, activities, entertainment or work. But what people might not realize is that where you live may also determine how happy you are. Location plays a hand in how bright or gloomy our days are. For years, researchers have studied the science of happiness and found that its key ingredients include a positive mental state, healthy body, strong social connections, job satisfaction and financial well-being. However, money can only make you so happy – people who make $75,000 a year won’t get any higher satisfaction from more money. As this study aims to illustrate, moving to a certain city may help you be more content. WalletHub drew upon the various findings of positive-psychology research in order to determine which among more than 180 of the largest U.S. cities is home to the happiest people in America. We examined each city based on 28 key indicators of happiness, ranging from depression rate to income-growth rate to average leisure time spent per day. Read on for our findings, methodology and expert commentary from a panel of researchers. To see which states combine all the necessary components of happiness, check out WalletHub’s report on the Happiest States in America. Top 20 Happiest Cities in America     1 Fremont, CA   11 Madison, WI   2 Bismarck, ND   12 Columbia, MD   3 San Jose, CA   13 San Francisco, CA   4 Pearl City, HI   14 Scottsdale, AZ   5 Plano, TX   15 Overland Park, KS   6 Fargo, ND   16 Santa Clarita, CA   7 Sioux Falls, SD   17 Glendale, CA   8 Irvine, CA   18 Oakland, CA   9 Huntington Beach, CA   19 St. Paul, MN   10 Grand Prairie, TX   20 Gilbert, AZ   View Full Report By: Adam McCann, Financial...

Gressa Skin Sorts Through How To Grow And Remain The Same

Gressa Skin Sorts Through How To Grow And Remain The Same

The green beauty sector is filled with successful brands that started from humble beginnings. Gressa Skin is one of the more poignant examples. A Russian refugee who escaped severe anti-Semitism to settle in the United States during her teenage years, its founder Svetlana Zakharevich siphoned off her college loan funds to lay the groundwork for the brand that’s now a Credo staple and has stretched from skincare to wildly popular cosmetics. Manufactured in-house in Seattle, Zakharevich’s vision for her brand is to expand while not forgetting where it came from. “I want to never lose the integrity it began with. It’s a brand with the highest quality ingredients made with the highest intentions,” she says. “My ultimate goal is to never have to stress about explaining to our loyal customers why this change or that change was made.” Beauty Independent chatted with Zakharevich about scaling, selecting distribution partners, becoming a presence on social media, changing the brand’s name, hiring employees, departing Whole Foods and waving goodbye to toners. Tell us about the path that led you to Gressa. I was raised in Russia, and I came to the United States when I was almost 14-years-old to Seattle. My personal history is important to why Gressa is the way that it is. Being born and raised in the far east of Russia, the way that we treated ailments and thought about nutrition very much ties into Gressa’s history. When I came here, I was going to become a doctor. My academic background is in pre-med, health, wellness, nutrition and biochemistry. When I was nearly done with my [bachelor’s] degree, I realized I was more passionate about prevention than treatment when it came to health. Nutrition really inspired me and fired me up. I learned about ingredients and allergens. Then, I started really breaking down cosmetics ingredients, and it was shocking to me. I was a consumer who liked a certain aesthetic, and I was finding out that everything I had been using for years could possibly cause harm to the endocrine system or to the environment. Through that discovery came Gressa and the eight skincare formulas that are still around today. Why did your family leave Russia? We are Jewish, and there was a lot of discrimination. We are refugees and, when we came here, we had a white refugee alien card. My story is very much the story of the American dream. I have gone from being an immigrant to being an entrepreneur. What year did Gressa launch? Everything began in 2009, but it used to not be called Gressa. For two years, it was called something different that was tacky and awful. However, the formulas were the same. Going back further than that, it started with me making my own soaps. I used to cook soaps in the kitchen with lye, oils and water. That was my first obsession. I did farmers markets in 2011 with the soaps and the skincare. People would tell me they were amazing. That convinced me to invest in the products and the packaging. I repackaged with the packaging that I have today, and we went into Whole Foods. Whole Foods was my first major retailer. I really learned about how they verify ingredients. They visited my facility in Portland, where Gressa was conceived, and I got...

35mm Archival Nitrate Prints This Week at the Egyptian Theatre

35mm Archival Nitrate Prints This Week at the Egyptian Theatre

The American Cinematheque Presents 35mm Nitrate Prints from the George Eastman Museum & the Academy Film Archive Onscreen This Week at the Egyptian Theatre NITRATE NIGHTS March 16 & 18, 2018 EGYPTIAN THEATRE 6712 Hollywood Boulevard, L.A. 90028 Nitrate projection made possible through support of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Turner Classic Movies and The Film Foundation in partnership with the American Cinematheque and the Academy Film Archive. Initially manufactured by Eastman Kodak in the 1880s, nitrate film was the first material that was flexible, strong and transparent enough to carry motion picture frames thru the wheels and gates of a projector. When screened, it created luminous, sharp and subtle images, but at a price – nitrate is extremely flammable, and will even continue burning underwater. In the past, the extreme heat generated by movie projectors has ignited the nitrate film that ran through them, killing or injuring patrons and projectionists (a scenario recreated in director Giuseppe Tornatore’s CINEMA PARADISO, which told the story of the friendship of a boy and a movie theatre projectionist in a small Italian town in the 1940s). The movie industry switched to a safe, acetate-based film stock around 1950, but nitrate prints survive in archives, kept in special storage conditions. Though cineastes enjoy seeing them projected for their particular picture quality, historical nitrate prints can only be shown today in specially built, fire-and-explosion proof projection booths. Very few West Coast venues are certified to show nitrate films .. but the Lloyd E. Rigler Theatre at the Egyptian is one of them. As the American Cinematheque opens the curtain on nitrate, join us for screenings of ultra-rare prints of Carol Reed’s suspenseful British drama THE FALLEN IDOL and Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s Technicolor favorite BLACK NARCISSUS. THE FALLEN IDOL Friday, March 16, 2018 – 7:30 PM EGYPTIAN THEATRE 6712 Hollywood Blvd., LA 90028 Film is cool. Nirate is hot! A rare archival treasure is screening on March 16th with our Nitrate Picture Show screening of an archival 35mm Nitrate Print of THE FALLEN IDOL (1948, Rialto Pictures). Based on a Graham Greene story, the film teams writer Greene and director Carol Reed (who made THE THIRD MAN together the following year) in a psychological mystery about a French ambassador’s son who is the sole witness to the death of a housekeeper in London. Carol Reed, one of England’s most celebrated directors, probes the complexity and callousness of human relationships in this Oscar-nominated adaptation of a story by Graham Greene. Told through the naive eyes of an upper-class boy, the film centers on his idealization of his father’s butler, Baines, who entertains him with extravagant (and fictional) accounts of heroic adventures. Contrasting this is the reality of Baines’s unhappy, loveless marriage and his dreams of escaping his lot in life. Top-shelf performances from Ralph Richardson, Michèle Morgan, and young Bobby Henrey fuel this suspenseful, exceptionally written story of loyalty, betrayal, and everything in between. This print was screened as a surprise to the audience of the George Eastman Museum’s Nitrate Picture Show Festival in 2015 and now the American Cinematheque is thrilled to screen it. 35mm nitrate print courtesy of George Eastman Museum, part of a 1999 donation to the museum by Daniel Selznick, son of David O. Selznick. Nitrate projection made possible through support of the Hollywood...

The Mexican Standoff ‘Muro’

Apoyamos a los dreamers. Apoyamos la inmigración. Apoyamos la igualdad. Bilingual Alternative L.A. based band  The Mexican Standoff released their latest video, “Muro,” a critique to Trump’s proposed huge wall, that narrates one of eight hundred thousand dreamer’s stories. The music video for “Muro” contrasts the serious subject matter with some humor and a hint of parody. The video was exclusively premiered on KCRW’S Pan Caliente. http://blogs.kcrw.com/music/2018/02/pan-caliente-video-premiere-mexican-standoff-muro/ Also featured on Pocho.com http://www.pocho.com/mexican-standoff-sings-a-song-about-the-border-wall-el-muro-video/ What The band says about “Muro” “Muro” is the narrative of one of eight hundred thousand stories.  Today’s president is making a lot of noise about building a border wall when there are around 344 miles of wall built already. Politics are out of control, and as musicians and storytellers, we want to bring some humor and music to today’s issues. We hope to bring people together in these days where America is divided. We support dreamers. We support immigration. We support equality   About The Mexican Standoff The Mexican Standoff is a socially conscious band with a comedic twist comprised of producers, performers and songwriters of the LA Latin Alternative scene. Creators of the viral video “El Corrido de Benjamin Ramirez” aka “El Elotero,” they play folk music from the border, sing in both English and Spanish and show people a good time in these tough times. The members of the Mexican Standoff are accomplished musicians in their own right. Among their shows in 2017, headlining the opening night of Spaceland in the Levitt Pavillion Summer Series, and Echo Park Rising. Translation of Lyrics: “Muro” When I was a little morrito We moved to Los Angelitos After three days of walking with lots of hopes and sueñitos Mi mami trabajaba duro To feed me and my hermanitos Didn’t speak any English It was hard to make amigos I was good in school, I never missed a day Played a lot of sports, got a lot of A’s Wanted to be a doctor someday They say I can’t cause I’m illegal Muro, Muro I was born south of the Muro Muro I grew up north of the Muro Obama el ex presidente deportó a muchos amigos but right before he left us he passed a bill to save us But now the presidente who’s name we don’t want to mention wants to take away our hard work and dedication I get up at six, I head off to school and then go to work, and do it again wanted to be a doctor someday They say I can’t ‘cause I’m a dreamer Muro I was born south of the Muro Muro, Muro I grew up north of the muro Muro, Muro I was born south of the Muro Muro, I grew up north of the muro Follow The Mexican Standoff @themexstandoff Listen on...

5 Travel Experiences That Support Women

5 Travel Experiences That Support Women

March is distinguished as Women’s History Month in the U.S., and March 8 marks the global celebration of International Women’s Day. In celebration and support of the many great achievements of women around the world, we’d like to highlight the entrepreneurship, leadership, and talents of five international tourist operations run by women. Each unique experience provides cultural understanding and local knowledge while supporting women and their families. Covering four continents and a range of activities, these immersive experiences also cater to all types of travelers. Though all five operations are run by women, men are encouraged to participate and support these causes when it’s in a culturally appropriate setting. Take a wildlife photo tour in Lapland, Sweden Scandinavian Photoadventures, operated by Anette Niia and Ylva Sarri, offers immersive photography tours in Sweden’s stunning Lapland region. Niia says that their tours stand out because they zero in on “how to get the photos you want instead of discussing the technical terms and material, which is often the focus of photography courses.” This provides a less intimidating approach for beginner photographers. That said, Niia, Sarri, and their team are professional photographers, filmmakers, and nature guides, so even experienced shutterbugs stand to learn a thing or two. Photography tours are available year-round and focus on wildlife, nature, and the Northern Lights. Northern Sweden boasts some impressive scenery, encompassing mountains, wetlands, and dense pine forests. It’s not uncommon to spot foxes, moose, and reindeer in this remote corner of Europe. The team also incorporates their own Sami culture into the excursions and photo lessons. Scandinavia’s indigenous Sami population dates back at least 5,000 years and has its own distinct culture from Sweden, Norway, and Finland. Historically, the Sami people have worked as skilled fishermen, fur trappers, and semi-nomadic reindeer herders. Today, over 10 percent of the population is still involved in reindeer herding. Photography tours can be combined with an immersive Sami experience, including traditional meals and “becoming a Sami survivor.” The latter involves going out into the forest to learn about traditional Sami clothing, making a fire, and local wisdom on how to be in nature. Zip around on a motorbike in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Exploring Phnom Penh’s bustling streets by motorbike offers quite the adrenaline rush and should only be attempted by experienced drivers. Fortunately, Motogirltour offers guided tours of Cambodia’s capital via motorbike, allowing guests to hop on the back and be taken around by professionals. Motogirltour was founded in 2015 by Chea Renou, who quit her accounting job to start the business. Renou’s company employs a team of six female tour guides, made up of university students and young professionals. Tuk-tuk and motorbike drivers are ubiquitous in Phnom Penh, but the vast majority of them are men — plus many do not offer the same range of tours as Motogirltour. Motogirltour gives guests the option of a daytime or nighttime city tour, daytime adventure tour, a shopping tour of local markets, or a custom tour. These knowledgeable guides are well-versed in contemporary culture, allowing visitors to gain local insight while covering a lot of ground. The city tour hits all of the main attractions, such as the Central Market and Royal Palace. On the other hand, the adventure tour takes guests outside the modern capital to provide a glimpse into traditional Cambodian life...
