101- Disneyland reopens after 412 days - By Gary Sunkin
•••• In Disneyland's 66-year history, the theme park has been shut only three times -- on the National Day of Mourning in 1963 after President John Kennedy was assassinated; following the 1994 Northridge earthquake and on Sept. 11, 2001, following the 9/11 terror attacks. Before the pandemic struck in March 2020, none of those closures lasted longer than a day.
•••• The May 1st morning festivities started even before guests arrived with the raising of the American and California flags at 6:50 a.m. by the Disneyland color guard at Town Square on Main Street.
•••• Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park reopened at 8 a.m. local time with the first guests cheering, and waving as they entered through the gates. The Anaheim parks are only open to California residents at limited capacity for now.
•••• Disney cast members lined Main Street USA and returned the applause and cheers. "Welcome back, everyone," they said in greeting.
•••• The crowd seemed cheerful to be back in Disneyland. "Spending time with friends and enjoying rides again" was what most were looking forward to as they entered the park.
•••• Parkgoers began lining up hours before Disneyland's official opening time. To prevent crowding in Disneyland's Main Street area, park employees invited the admitted guests to freely roam the grounds. Workers, alongside Walt Disney Co. Executive Chairman Bob Iger and Chief Executive Bob Chapek, waved at people as they entered.
•••• Wait times on rides varied in the morning from about 5 to 45 minutes but changed quickly as people moved around. Before the pandemic, many popular rides registered wait times over an hour. 
•••• Characters in Toontown came out randomly, standing at the doorways or front porches of their homes and waving. Guests are not currently able to go into the homes of Mickey, Minnie and other characters.
•••• Among other precautions, park attendance is capped at 25% of capacity. Visitors must attest that they are Californians when they buy tickets online. In contrast, Universal Studios Hollywood and SeaWorld San Diego are among the parks that have begun selling tickets to people who live outside California and are fully vaccinated. At Disneyland guests and employees must wear masks, and people who don't live together must maintain physical distance in queues and on rides.
•••• Fireworks shows and parades have been scrapped -- as they tend to cause excited parkgoers to crowd too closely together. Costumed characters such as Mickey Mouse and Goofy aren't giving out hugs, but they are posing for pictures and waving from balconies and stages.
•••• Safety was key, as evidenced by the hand sanitizer stations every few feet and lines on the pavement, in shops and line queues reminding guests to keep well distanced.
•••• Disneyland has always been known for cleanliness. That is now stepped-up with cast members constantly wiping down handrails, tops of walls and areas where people may lean or randomly touch as they walk by.
•••• Added safety features also included plexiglass around cashier areas of kiosks. Because there is no indoor dining, there were more tables and chairs outdoors through the park where people could sit and eat. A reminder, too, that guests must be stationary when eating -- no more snacking while walking around or waiting in line for rides or on rides.
•••• Guests will be required to undergo temperature screenings with no-touch thermometers before entering the parks. Based on state health guidelines, anyone with a temperature of 100.4 F or higher will not be allowed entry, nor will anyone in their party.
•••• Facecoverings can only be removed when actively eating or drinking, but one must be stationary and physically distanced from others when doing so. The Disneyland website or app advise for acceptable face coverings.
••••When Disney closed its California parks on March 14, 2020, executives expected to reopen by the end of the month. But coronavirus continued to spread delaying opening date for over a year.
•••• For tickets and reservations, park hours, lists of rides, attractions and dining spots that are open, visit Disneyland.com or download the Disneyland app.

 101- SAG-AFTRA Mourns the Passing of Broadcaster Joe Krebs. Award-Winning Journalist Served as National Board Member for Two Decades 
LOS ANGELES (April 6, 2021) -- Broadcaster Joe Krebs, who was a member of the SAG-AFTRA National Board and a recipient of the George Heller Memorial Award for union service, died this morning at the age of 78.
•••• "Joe was a true union man. His breadth of knowledge and experience was an enormous asset to SAG-AFTRA. The work he did in support of his fellow members and for the principles of fairness and justice will endure," said SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris. "Joe was also my friend and I will miss him dearly. I send my deepest condolences to his friends, family and loved ones."
•••• Krebs served as president of the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists' Washington-Baltimore Local from 1997&endash;2009. At the conclusion of his service, Krebs was presented with the National AFTRA President Founder's Award. Krebs began his AFTRA National Board service in 2000 and was instrumental in the merger of Screen Actors Guild and AFTRA; he co-wrote both the new union's constitution and its dues structure. He went on to serve on the SAG-AFTRA National Board since the union's merger in 2012.
•••• Krebs had an extensive broadcast career, starting in 1970 with WFMY-TV in Greensboro, North Carolina, after graduating law school. He spent the last three decades of his career at WRC-TV in Washington, D.C., where he became a local institution. His work earned him numerous Emmys. He retired in 2012, but continued to serve the union, including chairing the National Broadcast Steering Committee.
••• In 2017, at SAG-AFTRA's third biennial convention, Krebs received the George Heller Memorial Award, which takes the form of a gold membership card and is given to those with an exceptional record of serving the union and its members. On April 1, 2021, he was awarded SAG-AFTRA's President's Award for meritorious service.

101- KISS THE GROUND wins its 25th Film Festival Award todate.
LOS ANGELES, CA.  -- The critically-acclaimed environmental feature documentary, KISS THE GROUND, recently garnered its 25th film festival award after the Red Nation International Film Festival (RNIFF) bestowed its humanitarian honor, the Chief Dan George Award, to directors Josh Tickell and Rebecca Harrell Tickell (Oscar® short list for "Fuel," Official Selection Cannes Film Festival for "The Big Fix") acknowledging their contributions and commitment to environmental justice. To date, KISS THE GROUND has been invited to 46 film festivals as an official selection, including the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival.
•••• The Red Nation International Film Festival's Chief Dan George Award is its humanitarian award named for the famous Canadian actor, author, and activist who is known for his advocacy for First Nations and environmental rights, and as the first Native American to earn an Academy Award® nomination for his supporting role in "Little Big Man" (1970).  Previous recipients of the award include filmmaker Theda NewBreast and Dr. Jane Goodall.
•••• "Nurturing the land is a sacred tradition in Native American cultures, and 'Kiss The Ground' shows how we, as a people, are in desperate need to reconnect and repair our relationship with our original mother--Mother Earth," said Joanelle Romero, Executive Director of the RNIFF. "Josh and Rebecca expertly crafted an inspirational, urgent, and hope-filled documentary showing us exactly how to stop climate change and ensure our Mother is healthy enough to provide for future generations. Their film embodies the humanitarian values of the Chief Dan George Award, and the Red Nation International Film Festival is thrilled and proud to celebrate it with one of our highest honors."
•••• Adds Ray Archuleta, renowned Conservation Agronomist and one of the lead subjects of the documentary, "As a soil educator and a person of both Native American and Latino heritage, I'm proud to be part of the 'Kiss The Ground' family and find it appropriate that our 25th award is from the Red Nations International Film Festival. The documentary is a message of hope and forgiveness for the people and the land, and I congratulate Josh and Rebecca on their latest honor." Archuleta served the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) for 30 years and is a respected expert on topic of soil health and the principle of Agroecology. 

KISS THE GROUND, narrated by Woody Harrelson and directed by critically-acclaimed directors Josh Tickell and Rebecca Harrell Tickell, unveils a game-changer: We can reverse global warming and the Earth's soil is the solution. By regenerating earth, we can completely and rapidly stabilize our planet's climate, restore lost ecosystems, and create abundant food supplies. With epic footage shot on five continents, striking visuals from NASA and NOAA, and stunning animation, the documentary conveys this critical message through the voices of leading scientists, ecologists, and experts including Nobel Laureates in climate, members of the International Panel on Climate Change, top scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA), as well as environmental activists such as Gisele Bündchen, Tom Brady, Jason Mraz, Ian Somerhalder, Patricia Arquette, and Rosario Dawson. As an urgent call to action in addressing the world's climate crisis, KISS THE GROUND artfully illustrates an accessible, relatively simple solution to humanity's greatest challenge. Originally intended for a world premiere at this year's Tribeca Film Festival followed by a theatrical release, KISS THE GROUND is currently playing on Netflix and Vimeo on Demand.

 The KISS THE GROUND trailer is available on YouTube, KISSTHEGROUNDMOVIE.COM

Nested in the Los Padres National Forest in Ojai, California sits Big Picture Ranch - an organic avocado farm which also operates 24/7 as a soup-to-nuts film studio. Founders Josh and Rebecca Tickell are Sundance Award-Winning documentarians. Big Picture Ranch creates content that changes the global narrative around important environmental issues. Filmmakers Josh and Rebecca Tickell won the Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival with their first film FUEL, premiered their oil spill documentary THE BIG FIX as an official selection at Cannes, and are launching their first scripted feature film, HEARTLAND.

106- TV/Film Production to Resume
Protocols based on "The Safe Way Forward"

Los Angeles -- September 21 - The unions representing casts and crews today announced they have reached an agreement with the major studios on protocols to allow the industry to safely re-open. The protocols pave the way for creative workers, who have been hard hit by the pandemic, to resume their crafts and livelihoods in workplaces redesigned around their health. Guiding principles include strictly enforced testing regimens and safety protocols, a zone-based system, and diligent use of personal protective equipment (PPE). The new measures will be implemented by employers in order to minimize the risk of transmission. To ensure workers' livelihoods are not burdened with added uncertainty during the pandemic, the agreement also includes COVID-19 sick leave and quarantine pay.  
•••• The agreement is the outcome of unprecedented coordination and solidarity between the Directors Guild of America (DGA), International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) and the Basic Crafts, and Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA). This group worked with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) for months to develop science-based protocols to minimize the risk of transmission, designed with the unique work environments of film and television production in mind. 
•••• The new guidelines are based on "The Safe Way Forward" report released by the unions in June, and developed in consultation with leading epidemiologists and experts; as well as the preceding industry white paper[1] delivered to state governments and agencies to examine the resumption of production. 

Key highlights include:

Comprehensive, Mandatory Testing Regimens

• Every member of the cast and crew will be tested before their first day of work to ensure they are not actively infected with the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

• Cast and crew members in the production environment will subsequently undergo a regular testing protocol during the course of their work on the production.

• Lab-based PCR tests, the gold standards of COVID-19 testing accuracy, or rapid PCR tests used in conjunction with lab-based PCR tests, will be allowed. Antigen and antibody tests are not acceptable. 

 • Testing Frequency & The Zone System

• In order to ensure the different sections of the production environment are tightly controlled, the agreement requires the implementation of a specialized "Zone" system laying out barriers within which those on set can flow based on proximity to cast, level of testing, PPE and the extent to which physical distancing can be observed in the performance of their work.

• Given that performers are uniquely vulnerable because they are not able to utilize PPE and physical distancing when cameras are rolling, the agreement requires more frequent testing &emdash;  of at least three times a week &emdash;  for performers as well as those with whom they come into close contact, referred to as "Zone A."

• All other individuals in the production environment will utilize physical distancing and PPE at all times. Those who work on set, but not when performers are present without PPE ("Zone B"), must be tested at a minimum of once a week.

• Workers in production areas other than the set, such as the production office ("Zone C"), must be tested at a minimum of once every two weeks.

• Remote workers associated with the production, but not working in the production environment ("Zone D"), will be tested prior to their first day of employment.

 Dedicated COVID-19 Safety Monitoring & Enforcement

• Each production will have a designated COVID-19 compliance supervisor responsible for safety compliance and enforcement, who will be accessible to cast and crew at all times during working hours. To ensure that safety protocols are being followed, the compliance supervisor or a member of their COVID-19 compliance team with training and authority will be physically present on the production from crew call to wrap. The production may hire additional people to work under the compliance supervisor to assist in carrying out the safety duties.

• 101- 27 million tune into Easter Message of Hope from Milano, Italy - Andrea Bocelli livestreams coronavirus message
••••Andrea Bocelli would not be stopped by a pandemic from delivering a little hope on Easter Sunday.
•••Invited by the city of Milan, the Italian opera star on Sunday morning livestreamed a solo performance on YouTube -- "Andrea Bocelli: Music for Hope" -- from the city's main cathedral, the Duomo di Milano, with 27 million people around the world tuning in.
•••• Showing sweeping views of the centuries-old city of Milano, the video's introduction carried Bocelli's voice-over Easter message, also a reference to the coronoavirus outbreak that has ravaged his country and weighs on most of the world.
••••"I believe in the strength of praying together. I believe in the Christian Easter, a universal symbol of rebirth that everyone whether they are believers or not truly needs right now."

••• Duomo di Milano

••• In a statement, Bocelli expressed how much of an emotional performance this was in terms of not only the holiday but also the state of the world during this crisis. 
••••"I will cherish the emotion of this unprecedented and profound experience, of this Holy Easter which this emergency has made painful, but at the same time even more fruitful, one that will stay among my dearest memories of all time. That feeling of being at the same time alone -- as we all are in the presence of the Most High -- yet of expressing the voice of the prayer of millions of voices, has deeply impressed and moved me."
•••In the empty cathedral backed only by organist Emanuele Vianelli, Bocelli ran through a program that included performances of "Panis Angelicus," "Ave Maria," "Sancta Maria," and ending with "Amazing Grace" in front of the magnificent Duomo di Milano, the seat of the archbishop of Milan.
•••• Images of other global landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, Venice and New York were also a part of the presentation.
•••• On the YouTube page, there is also a link to the singer's Andrea Bocelli Foundation (ABF) GoFundMe campaign that aims to help hospitals purchase personal protective equipment necessary to protect local medical staff.
•••• Note: Italy suffered approximately 160,000 Coronavirus infected cases and more than 20,000 deaths.

101- L.A. Marathon taking precautions against coronavirus as 27,000 entrants expected - By Gary Sunkin
•••• "All Los Angeles Marathon weekend activities are scheduled to take place as planned," a recent statement from the Los Angeles Marathon read. "Safety is always our first priority and our operations team has been in consistent dialogue with local authorities and monitoring developments related to all safety aspects of the marathon, including coronavirus."

•••• Health officials said the risk to exposure at the local marathon -- which will pass through Echo Park, Los Feliz and Silver Lake -- is "low" at this time.
The LA Marathon (formerly the City of Los Angeles Marathon) is an annual running event held each spring in Los Angeles, California. The 26.219 mile (42.195 km) footrace, inspired by the success of the 1984 Summer Olympic Games, has been contested every year since 1986.
•••• Over the course of its 33-year history, the LA Marathon has become one of the largest marathons in the country with more than 25,000 participants, thousands of volunteers and hundreds of thousands of spectators.
•••• The historic race, which has seen unprecedented growth since introducing the iconic "Stadium to Sea" course, draws runners from all over the world to take a tour of Los Angeles running past every major landmark. The "Stadium to the Sea" route was not the original route: the original route ended at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and a route around the turn of the millennium both started and ended in Downtown Los Angeles.
According to the marathon's website, more than 27,000 athletes from all 50 states and more than 78 countries will set out from Dodger Stadium in an effort to reach the finish line in Santa Monica.

Coronavirus Prevention
••County health officials and race organizers said that they have taken steps to try to prevent the spread of coronavirus during Sunday's L.A. Marathon, including deferring entrants from countries deemed to have a high risk of exposure to the disease.
••• A "very small number" of entrants from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Italy, South Korea and Iran have been deferred.
••• Entrants being screened at airports will be quarantined and won't be able to participate in the race if they show symptoms.
•••• Marathon officials said they deferred entries for people who live in countries where the U.S. Department of State has issued a "do not travel to" advisory, although they said it was a "very small number" of entrants, about 0.06% of the field. Entrants with a home address in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Italy, South Korea and Iran have been deferred.
•••• Murphy Reinschreiber, the chief operating officer for The McCourt Foundation, which runs the marathon, said the deferrals will be honored for next year's race.
•••• On race day, officials said they will have an increased number of hand- sanitizer stations at the race expo, start line, along the route and finish festival. They are also telling participants to follow public safety measures, including frequently washing their hands, using hand sanitizer and to stay home if they feel ill.

101-The Chiefs head to the Super Bowl vs. the San Francisco 49ers
•••• When the Kansas City Chiefs take on the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV, a lot will be made of the battle between a dominant offense (Chiefs) and a dominant defense (49ers). But this game is so much more than that. In addition to the fact that both teams are more than capable on the opposite side of the ball, respectively, this matchup features two teams who had to overcome their fair share of adversity to get to this stage.
•••• The Chiefs earned their bid to the Super Bowl by rallying back from double-digit deficits twice, first beating the Houston Texans 51-31 in the divisional round and then blowing by the Tennessee Titans 35-24 in the AFC title game. The 49ers made relatively easy work of their NFC opponents on their way to the Super Bowl, downing the Minnesota Vikings 27-10 before laying it to the Green Bay Packers 37-20 in a game San Francisco led 27-0 at halftime.
•••• Super Bowl LIV will be played in Miami Gardens, Florida, at Hard Rock Stadium, home of the Miami Dolphins. This year's Big Game will mark the 11th time South Florida has hosted a Super Bowl, with the last one coming in 2010 (Super Bowl XLIV) at Hard Rock, then known as Sun Life Stadium.
•••• Jennifer Lopez and Shakira are scheduled to headline the Super Bowl 2020 halftime show.

Super Bowl LIV will be broadcast on Sunday, Feb. 2, 2020 at: 6:30 p.m. ET through the following channels:

Football was permanently reinstated as part of the Tournament's traditions in 1916.
•••• The exclusive agreement among the Tournament of Roses Association, the Big Ten Conference and the Pac-12 Conference was born in 1946, and the first game played under the agreement took place on January 1, 1947. The pact is the oldest intercollegiate postseason bowl agreement between two major conferences in the United States.
•••• This collegiate classic has been the occasion of many firsts. The Rose Bowl Game was the first local radio broadcast of an East-West bowl game in 1926, the first transcontinental radio broadcast of a sporting event in 1927, the first local telecast of a college football game in 1948, the first national telecast of a college football game in 1952, the first coast-to-coast color telecast of a collegiate football game in 1962, and the first College Football Playoff Semifinal in 2015.

101- Oregon Defeats Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl

•••• Oregon won the Rose Bowl with a roster that includes more then 30 players who grew up in Sothern California within 70 miles of the Rose Bowld. Oregon just used kids from So LA to Norco to Rancho Ccamonga to Mission Viejo to defeat a bunch of behemohts from Wisconsin 28-27.
••• With about one-third Sothern Calfiornia kids, they beat Wisonsin despite being outgained 322 yard to 204 because they stole the ball four times and shut town the Badger in crunch time. With Soouthern California kids, Oregon won by playing the sort of thghnes that USC uesed to have.

•••• Since 1890, the Tournament of Roses has produced America's New Year Celebration, bringing the traditions of the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl Game to Pasadena and the world for nearly 130 years.
•••• The Ohio State Buckeyes, champions of the Big Ten Conference, and the Washington Huskies, champions of the Pac-12 Conference, will play in the 105th Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual at 1 p.m. PT/4 p.m. ET, on January 1, 2019, at the Rose Bowl Stadium.

Along the way, they share their feelings about their own lives, and make observations about issues that impact us all. The documentary also explores the reasoning behind their choice to clock in as the sun sets, each explaining their role in their communities, the necessity of their occupations and why the usual nine-to-five workday is not an option for them.

Public historian and writer Nathan Masters of the USC Libraries returns as Host with untold histories behind Griffith Park, Manzanar, Los Angeles' prohibition tunnels, architect Paul Revere Williams, the Shindana Toy Company and the Mount Wilson Observatory. Now in its fourth season, LOST LA explores our region's hidden past through documents, photos and other rare artifacts from California libraries and archives. Season four of LOST LA premieres on Tues., Oct. 15 at 8:30 p.m. on KCET in Southern California with encores airing one week later on PBS SoCal at 7:30 p.m.

•••• LOST LA originally premiered as a series on KCET in January of 2016 based on an "online to on-air" incubation model where high-trafficked web content was produced for broadcast. Since then, the series has continued to challenge the assumption that Los Angeles is a city without a history. Instead, LOST LA offers a history of Southern California that is not often told, or has been forgotten, bringing primary sources of Los Angeles history to the screen and connecting them to the Los Angeles of today.

The episodes will be telecast as follows (subject to change):
"Griffith Park" &endash; Tues., Oct. 15

Currently available to teachers across the state on a portal that can be accessed through kcet.org/lostlacurriculum , teachers and students have been able to navigate digital content pertinent to topics that range from Los Angeles' coded geographies to the city's original roots in "The Wild West." Lost LA Curriculum Project was created by a powerful local alliance comprised of KCET, USC Libraries, the UCLA History-Geography Project and the Huntington-USC Institute on California and the West.

101- RACE WEEK HAS FINALLY ARRIVED!- The 34th LA Marathon race begins Sunday morning at Dodger Stadium.
By Gary Sunkin
••••Frank McCourt purchase the operating rights to the race in 2008. Soon afterward, he asked his team to devise a course that would show off the very best of Los Angeles. Working with public officials and community stakeholders, the "Stadium to the Sea" course was born. With Dodger Stadium as the starting point, the course traverses from downtown LA, Wet Hollywood, Beverly Hills to Santa Monica with a majestic finish overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
•••• The race begins at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday, March 24 and if you plan on driving or riding the bus that day, you'll want to take a good look at the planned street closures along the route.
•••The marathon starts at Dodger Stadium and winds its way through Downtown before cutting up past Echo Park Lake and over to Sunset Boulevard. Runners will follow the street up to Hollywood Boulevard and head west, passing the Walk of Fame along the way.
••••The course then drops down to the Sunset Strip and then down again to Santa Monica Boulevard. After a quick detour in Beverly Hills, it extends north toward the VA Hospital and cuts west on San Vicente. Finally, runners enter the final stretch on Ocean Avenue and finish the race just short of the Santa Monica Pier.
••••Most of the streets closed for the race will shut down between 4 and 5 a.m., though stretches of Main Street and Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica will be closed to traffic at midnight. Streets will start to reopen between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

This documentary not only explores the natural, year-round beauty of this urban retreat, but reveals its surprising history as one of Southern California's most beloved public gardens.
••••LOST LA: "Dream Factory" --10 a.m. Los Angeles is often identified with Hollywood, but there's more to the entertainment industry than its
facade of movie stars and blockbuster films. This episode explores the career of Lois Weber, a filmmakerwho rose to greatness in a nascent film industry that welcomed women into creative leadership positions; as well as a Central Casting Bureau that capitalized on the city's segregated ethnic enclaves when filling background roles.
••••LOST LA: "Yosemite" -- 10:30 a.m.

•••• LOST LA: "Desert Fantasy" -- 11 a.m.
California's deserts have sparked the imaginations of millions of people around the world including real estate developers that have created desert utopias like Palm Springs and Las Vegas.

Other dreams failed, leaving nothing but ruins.
•••• LOST LA: "Venice" -- 12:30 p.m.
Venice Beach boasts a rich, multilayered history. From its origins as a themed seaside resort to its international fame as a countercultural hub, explore Abbot Kinney's original Venice of America development, the community of Beat poets who called Venice home and how the commercial renaissance has impacted the historically African-American neighborhood of Oakwood.

101-Start-up NewTV - to bring Studio quality to digital video with $1-billion dollar infusion.
Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman are putting their biggest bet to hit Hollywood in lecent years -- on digital video start-up NewTV, to bring blockbuster production value to the low-budget video space.
•••• Katzenberg co-founded Dream Works Animation and was behind Walt Disney;s greatest animated hits. Whitman ran Hewlett-Packard for years and grew EBay into an e-commerce giant.
•••• Their backers include all the major film and TV studios -- such as Walt Disney Co., Warner Media and 21st Century Fox, which plan to create original content for the planned subscription service. Indie studios, including Lionsgate, have signed on as well.
•••• Digital upstarts have struggled to find a viable business model , but NewTV got a big confidence boost Monday, disclosing $1 billion in funding to produce and distribute short videos for mobile devices.
•••• A group of funders include Madrone Capital Parters in Menlo Park, Goldman Sachs Group Inc., JPMorgan Chase and Jack Ma's Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba.
•••• The start-up hasn't announced any shows or launched an app. However, Katzenberg and Whitman need a big war chest to make their offering stand out as companies such as Netflix, Apple and Amazon.com spend billions to woo established directors, writers, actors and producers.
•••• The videos, delivered in 10-minute episodes, are expected to cost $100,000 a minute to produce, about 30 times what most producers drop on bite-sized videos consumed on smartphones. NewTV will distribute comedies, dramas, reality TV programs and other shows licensed from the studios. The shows will be available on a subscription-based app that is expected to launch during the holiday season of next year.
•••• NewTV, the first big venture to emerge from Katzenberg's investment company WndrCo., aims to do with short online video what HBO did for television: get people to pay a subscription by offering the content people can't get from free channels.
•••• The app will have a lower-priced tier that includes ads and a higher-priced ad-free version. The executives did not say what it would charge.

101- Chinese films at FILMFEST MÜNCHEN
•••• Munich International Film festival is the largest summer film festival in Germany and second only in size and importance to the Berlinale. It has been held annually since 1983 and takes place in late June.
•••• A geographic focus this year at FILMFEST MÜNCHEN, and one that pervades various sections of the program, is China. Films from this country include works by a number of audacious young (screenplay) writers, along with "ASH IS PUREST WHITE," the latest film by Jia Zhang-Ke, which is absolutely a highlight of the entire festival. Common to all these films is that they and their creators deliberately position themselves contrary to the cinematic mainstream. The result of this attitude is a collection of films, some of which are awkward, some avant-garde, none obliging, all with a powerfully driven vision of art and style. The fact that the plots of most of these films are set in provincial China, far from the familiar megacities, makes it possible to look behind the scenes, beyond the China we know.
••••The big name here is doubtless Jia Zhang-Ke, one of the best-known and most celebrated Chinese writer-directors. His international breakthrough ultimately came in 2006, when he received a Golden Lion in Venice for his masterpiece STILL LIFE, followed by an award for best screenplay in Cannes for TOUCH OF SIN (2013). Jia Zhang-Ke has become a frequent guest at large film festivals, not least at FILMFEST MÜNCHEN.
•••• With his latest film, ASH IS PUREST WHITE, which is entered in the CineMasters competition, Jia Zhang-Ke has again delivered a masterful film, underscoring his status as a chronicler of his country. In this capacity, he has time and again dealt in films with China's development in the past 20 years and with the (societal) consequences of Chinese turbocapitalism. Jia Zhang-Ke makes the major changes happening in the country as well as to its people a major theme in his current film. This film takes the viewer on a journey through idiosyncratic imagery and the entanglements of organized crime. It is both a romance and a gangster movie, melodramatic and trendy at the same time.

Georgia defeats Oklahoma 54-48 in Double OT in the 104th Rose Bowl - By Gary Sunkin
•••• The best College Football Playoff semifinal yet was just as majestic as its Rose Bowl setting
•••• The 104th Rose Bowl was also the highest-scoring, surpassing last year's 52-49 USC victory against Penn State. There was a lot more on the line in this one, the first CFP game to go to overtime as well.
•••• Well, you're not going to get much better than double overtime in The Granddaddy of Them All. A high-scoring, thrilling game between No. 2 Oklahoma and No. 3 Georgia took the Rose Bowl into its first overtime in history. The 54-48 victory for the Bulldogs came after blocking a Sooners field goal attempt with running back Sony Michel scoring the game-winning touchdown on a 27-yard run on the ensuing possession in double overtime.
•••• The win puts Georgia in a position to play for its first national championship since 1983. It also marks the largest comeback in Rose Bowl history and just the third double-digit comeback. The only other times were in 1926 when Alabama came back from 12-0 to beat Washington 20-19 and in 1989 when Michigan came back from 14-3 to beat USC 22-14. The comeback also marks a low-percentage win for the Bulldogs for the 2017 season.

••••Telegdy and Ahr will discuss the NBC network and studio's current and upcoming slate of programming and examine the evolution of free-to-air broadcast TV in an age of fragmented audiences and on-demand viewing. They will talk about the changes brought about by social media disruption, and their desire to innovate and update all aspects of development, production and programming that will be key in reaching global viewers.
•••• A former BBC Worldwide executive, Paul Telegdy was promoted to the newly created position of President, Alternative and Reality Group, NBC Entertainment in June 2016. He oversees NBC's unscripted series and specials programming, including such major franchises as "The Voice," "America's Got Talent," "American Ninja Warrior," "Little Big Shots," the Golden Globe Awards show, and "Running Wild with Bear Grylls."  Upcoming series, which are produced by Universal Television Alternative Studio, include the recently announced "World of Dance," executive produced by Jennifer Lopez, who sits on the judges' panel, and "Common Sense," executive produced by Stephen Lambert.

101- The Envelope Please!
•••• PricewaterhouseCoopers, the accountancy firm that has overseen the counting of the Oscars ballots for 83 years, has apologized for the most spectacular blunder in the history of the starry ceremony -- when the award for best film was mistakenly presented to La La Land instead of the actual winner Moonlight.
•••• The envelopes were locked in a safe until the day of the ceremony, when the accountants travelled separately to the theatre under security protection, each with a complete set of results. Each carried their briefcase of envelopes to the stage, standing stage right and stage left, ready to hand them to the presenters seconds before they walked on stage. They were confident nothing could go wrong &endash; until the night when it did, and the world was watching.
•••• The company promised to investigate the error after Warren Beatty, who was presenting the best picture award with "Bonnie and Clyde" co-star Faye Dunaway, ended up with the wrong envelope. As seen by millions of viewers, Beatty opened the envelope, he paused, as if not quite sure what he was seeing, but then passed it to Dunaway, who announced "La La Land!" What followed was unprecedented in Oscar history.
•••• Chaos duly reigned on stage as La La Land's cast and crew grappled with the turn of fortunes. As the audience applauded, open-mouthed, host Jimmy Kimmel tried to explain what had happened, before Warren Beatty took to the mic, sheepishly grinning through the madness.
•••• "There's a mistake."La-La Land producer Horowitz gently pushed Beatty out of the way to gesture to the cast and crew of Moonlight and say, "Moonlight, you guys won best picture". 'This is not a joke, Moonlight has won Best Picture'
•••• The exact procedure for dealing with such a mistake was unknown because such errors had never been made in the Oscars' 88-year history.
•••• Attention will focus on a provision intended to make the system failsafe: there are duplicate envelopes of the complete set of results, held in the wings in case anything should go wrong with a presenter or an envelope. The key question will be whether the duplicate of the best actress award, which had just been announced, was handed to Beatty in the wings as he walked out to announce best picture.
•••• The snafu was the talk of the town on social media and the Governor's ball that followed the awards.

101-Oscars No Shows, 1960 - 2016
• Hollywood stars who snubbed the Academy Awards
Not everyone in Hollywood enjoys the gala event. Over the years, a handful of Hollywood A-listers have refused to attend the ceremony, and some who've sidestepped the show did so when they were up for awards of their own.
•••• From Katharine Hepburn to Will Smith, here are Hollywood stars who snubbed the Oscars.
•••• 2016 - Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith called for a boycott of the Academy Awards ceremony upon learning that the nominations, for the second year in a row, featured no actors of color. The actress and her superstar husband, Will Smith, were soon joined in the boycott by other Hollywood heavyweights including Oscar-winning directors Spike Lee and Michael Moore, while other stars -- including Oscar winners George Clooney and Lupita Nyong'o -- spoke out in support.
•••• 2003 - Peter O' Toole - In 2003, Peter O' Toole became the first actor to ever refuse an honorary Oscar. Maybe he did so out of pride. The legendary "Lawrence of Arabia" star, who'd been nominated eight times throughout his nearly 50-year career and lost every single time, wrote to the Academy, explaining, "I am still in the game and might win the lovely bugger outright. Would the Academy please defer the honor until I am 80?"
•••• The Academy responded by telling him stars like Paul Newman and Henry Fonda were given Honorary Oscars and went on to actually win one shortly after. O'Toole was sold, and happily showed up to accept his award.
•••2002 - Woody Allen though he's been nominated several times throughout his decades-long career, has never shown up to receive an Academy Award, explaining, "I have no regard for that kind of ceremony. I just don't think they know what they're doing. When you see who wins those things -- or who doesn't win them -- you can see how meaningless this Oscar thing is."
•••• Allen did make one appearance on the Oscars stage. In 2002, just six months after the September 11 attacks, the director presented a montage of films made in his beloved New York City.
•••• 1987 - Paul Newman was nominated six times from 1961 until 1982, and although he attended the ceremony many times, he never took home an award.
•••• Newman was nominated a seventh time in 1987 for "The Color Of Money." All bets were on him, but by that point, the actor was over it, and decided ahead of time he wouldn't attend the ceremony. "It's like chasing a beautiful woman for 80 years. Finally, she relents and you say, 'I'm terribly sorry. I'm tired,'" Newman explained.
•••• 1981 - John Gielgud, British actor, charmed audiences as the unflappable, acid-tongued butler Hobson in 1981's "Arthur," but the actor didn't bother showing up to the ceremony to accept his award when his name was called.
•• Gielgud, who throughout his eight-decade career nabbed two Oscars, three Tonys, an Emmy and a Grammy (among other honors) -- once said of awards shows, "I really detest all the mutual congratulation baloney and the invidious comparisons which they evoke.""
•••• 1974 - Katharine Hepburn holds a Hollywood record for being nominated 12 times and winning four Oscars over her long career, but she never attended the ceremony to hear her name called. "As for me, prizes are nothing," she once said. "My prize is my work." Hepburn made exactly one appearance at the Academy Awards in 1974 to present the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award to producer and friend Lawrence Weingarten. "I'm living proof that a person can wait 41 years to be unselfish," she quipped.
•••• 1973 - Marlon Brando caused a ruckus when he boycotted the ceremony in 1973 to call attention to Hollywood's misrepresentation of Native Americans. Brando, who won Best Actor honors that year for his performance in "The Godfather," had Native American civil rights activist Sacheen Littlefeather approach the podium to decline his award and give a protest speech on his behalf.
•••• 1970 - George C. Scott was the first actor to refuse to accept an Oscar. The legendary actor, who was nominated in 1970 for his gripping portrayal of Gen. George S. Patton in "Patton," telegraphed the Academy months before the ceremony to let them know he didn't want the award. On the night of the ceremony, presenter Goldie Hawn opened the envelope and cried, "Oh my God! The winner is George C. Scott," but the actor, true to his word, was home on his farm in upstate New York.
•••• Scott said of the Oscars, "The ceremonies are a two-hour meat parade, a public display with contrived suspense for economic reasons." Oops!
•••• 1960 - Elizabeth Taylor, screen legend, was a frequent Oscar nominee, nabbing her first award for her role as a high-class escort in 1960's "Butterfield 8." Six years later, Taylor was poised to win again for her riveting performance opposite husband Richard Burton, who was also nominated, for "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" However, Burton had already lost four times at the Oscars and would almost certainly lose again, so both husband and wife boycotted the ceremony in protest -- though Taylor made up an excuse about Burton being afraid to fly back to the states from Paris. Taylor did win again and never issued a statement thanking the Academy.

It explores how California's Native peoples have actively shaped and tended the land for millennia, in the process developing a deep understanding of plant and animal life.

101- Osgood leaves "Sunday Morning"
Charles Osgood, who has made the CBS show "Sunday Morning" a weekly ritual for many viewers, will be leaving at the end of September after 22 years as the program's anchor.
•••News of his departure comes after months of speculation. On Sunday Aug. 28, Mr. Osgood, who is 83, used a part of the "Sunday Morning" broadcast to tell his viewers that the rumors were true.
•••"For years now, people, even friends and family, have been asking me why I keep doing this, considering my age," Mr. Osgood said. "I am pushing 84. It's just that it's been a joy doing it."
•••He added: "It's been a great run, but after nearly 50 years at CBS, including the last 22 years here on 'Sunday Morning,' the time has come, and a date is set for me to do my farewell 'Sunday Morning.'" The farewell broadcast will be on Sept. 25.
••He took over "Sunday Morning" from Charles Kuralt in 1994. His comforting, almost folksy approach to the news (and trademark bow ties) quickly eliminated any early doubts that he could successfully replace Mr. Kuralt, who had spent 15 years developing the show. With Mr. Osgood in the anchor chair, the program has won three daytime Emmys for outstanding morning program.
•••••"Charles Osgood has one of the most distinctive voices in broadcasting, guiding each broadcast, making sure the words were just right and being a calming, reassuring presence to our viewers," David Rhodes, president of CBS News, said in a statement. "His impeccable commitment to quality inspires all of us at CBS News."
••••• On his last Sunday, Mr. Osgood assured viewers that they could still find him on the radio. He will contribute to his long-running program "The Osgood File," where he has been known to read vignettes and poems about the day's news.
••• He ended his farewell to his viewers with a few wistful bars from a folk song, written by Woody Guthrie: "So long, it's been good to know you/So long it's been good to know you/So long it's been good to know you/A long time since I've been home/And I've got to be drifting along."
•••Among those under consideration are reportedly "Sunday Morning" colleagues Jane Pauley, Anthony Mason and Lee Cowan.

101- Fans send Vin Scully off with a teary good-bye and a key to the city by LA mayor Eric Garcetti - By Gary Sunkin
"It's time for Dodger baseball! Hi, everybody, and a very pleasant good (afternoon/evening) to you, wherever you may be." Scully's signature introduction to Dodger games.
•••• After 67 years as the radio and tv voice of the Dodgers, Vin Scully retires
He preferred to not stand under much of a spotlight in this final season-
so his farewell tour came to him. It has long been a tradition that umpires, before the first game of every series at Dodger Stadium, look up at the booth and uniformly salute Scully. But this season, both players and umpires, sometimes in uniform, have taken elevator rides to the fifth floor to visit his booth to simply say thank you.
•••• Scully stories? -- there are many. Writer Bill Plaschke remembers his Scully stories began when he was a young reporter covering the Dodgers for the LA Times in the late 1980s. "I would sneak a radio to my place in the Dodger Stadium press box and stick headphones into my ears and listen to him broadcast the final three innings. I was typing so furiously under deadline pressure I couldn't really watch the games, so Scully watched them for me, and taught me baseball in the process."
•••• Vincent Edward "Vin" Scully was born November 29, 1927 in The Bronx and grew up in the Washington Heights section of Manhattan
•••• Scully discovered his love of baseball at age 8, when he saw the results of the 2nd game of the 1936 World Series at a laundromat and felt a pang of sympathy for the badly defeated New York Giants. Since he lived near the Polo Grounds and was able to attend many games for free, he became a "very big Giants fan." Scully decided at eight years old that he wanted to become a sports announcer, when he became fascinated with the football broadcasts on the radio
•••• In 1950, Scully joined Red Barber and Connie Desmond in the Brooklyn Dodgers radio and television booths. When Barber got into a salary dispute with World Series sponsor Gillette in 1953, Scully took Barber's spot for the 1953 World Series.
•••• At the age of 25, Scully became the youngest person to broadcast a World Series game (a record that stands to this day). Barber left the Dodgers after the 1953 season to work for the New York Yankees. Scully eventually became the Dodgers' principal announcer and announced Dodgers games in Brooklyn until 1957
•••• In 1955 Scully announced Brooklyn's first world championship -- "Ladies and gentleman, the Brooklyn Dodgers are the champions of the world.'' Later Scully accompanied the Dodgers to their new location in Southern California beginning with the 1958 season, and quickly became popular.
•••••Vin Scully has been with the dodgers for 67 years since its days in Brooklyn, retiring as the radio and television voice of the Dodgers, and greatest announcer in the history of broadcasting. Recently, Scully called most Dodger home games (and selected road games) on SportsNet LA television and KLAC radio.
••••During the last three years, a greedy stalemate has kept the Dodgers off television in more than half of Los Angeles-area homes, costing fans a chance to say good-bye to Scully until a deal was struck that KTLA would broadcast the team's final six regular-season games. Through it all, Scully has openly acknowledged sadness but refused to show anger or place blame, and fans have not complained about his lack of intervention. They want him to be neutral. They love him for who he is.

101- The LA Rams are back,- bringing Goff and hope to L.A
By Gary Sunkin
The 2016 NFL Draft was held at the Auditorium Theatre at Chicago's Roosevelt University beginning Thursday April 28th 2016 and concluding on Saturday April 30th 2016 - The first round began at 5pm PT on Thursday, April 28th. The second and Third rounds will be held on Friday, April 29th starting at 4pm- and the Draft will conclude with rounds 4-7 on Saturday April, 30th beginning at 9am. Our Gary Sunkin Sports repother will be at the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday -Friday, and Saturday at the Los Angeles Rams Media Hotel to get reports on the NFL Draft.
"Ja-red Goff, Ja-red Goff," shouted the several thousand fans jamming the L.A. Live courtyard, the chant turning into a roar, as it became official, the Rams gave a new and shiny jersey to No. 1 overall pick quarterback Jared Goff.
••••"To get a player who we believe can be a big difference-maker in this town, at this time, it's unbelievable," said Rams owner Stan Kroenke.
••••Goff is bold, he's tough, and that's just when talking about baseball.
••••"This is a historic, monumental, a big deal for this franchise to be in a position where we can have our pick of a franchise quarterback and look forward to years to come with a player who is not only talented but is a great person," said Coach Jeff Fisher.
••••"We didn't make the trade without knowing the guy we wanted; we would never do that," said Kroenke. "You know the guy you want or you don't make the trade. The Rams are also thrilled because they think he possesses the intangibles that Kroenke was checking out when he sat next to Goff at their recent interview dinner.
••••"I made a point of sitting next to Jared, I wanted to get a sense of this kid, in a sense Jared was in the hot seat," Kroenke said. "He was very calm, very collected, very mature, very intelligent, not awed by L.A., frankly, he had a confidence to him, you could tell that."
•••••Goff says he's ready for the challenge of a team that hasn't finished with a winning record in 13 years, because, naturally, in three years, he led a Cal team from a 1-11 record to eight wins and a bowl victory.
•••• "He has the personality to embrace the market, to be a face of the franchise, but he also understands it's not up to him, it's collectively up to the rest of the team," said Fisher.
••••• They're not going to ask him to immediately be the star. But make no mistake, they walked away from all those screaming fans at L.A. Live on Thursday thinking that they found their guy..••
Rams Day 1 Draft News Conference
Head Coach Jeff Fisher:
"We have been waiting for this moment for some time now since the trade. We are excited to have you all here and are really excited to talk about [Rams first-round pick QB] Jared [Goff].
••• A lot of work has gone into this decision and your questions are probably, 'How long have you known?' And we have probably known for a little while. As you know we have had both Jared and Carson [Wentz] and I spent a lot of time with both of them.
•••We came away after they both left knowing that both would be extraordinary quarterbacks in this league and just felt really good about being in the position to be where we got to choose one of them. We spent a lot of time and we faeel like Jared is our guy. So this is a, I don't want to say this historic, maybe monumental, but this is a big deal for this franchise to be in a position to where we can have our pick of a franchise quarterback and look forward to years to come with a player that is not only talented, but he is a great person. He is a competitor, he's a leader, he does all those things. We are going to wish Carson the best and we are going to look forward to our future here with Jared eventually becoming our starting quarterback."
•••General Manager Les Snead: "I think I'll add that our vision started with [Owner/Chairman] Stan [Kroenke] at the top, [C.O.O/Executive Vice President of Football Operations] Kevin [Demoff], and Jeff. We didn't want to just come home, we wanted to come home and contend and contend consistently. I think this might have all started, if you look at our last four years, we have gone from bad to competitive. We have done it with the youngest team in football for the last four years and it was helped a little bit because we kind of did a little reverse.
••• We were on the other side of the coin a few years ago and we got a lot of picks and were able to build a strong core and we were competitive with instability at QB. I give Coach Fisher, his staff, and all those players that have been busting their tail for the last four years or three or two, and that are up at Oxnard now busting their tail for being competitive. Like Coach, said it goes without saying and has been said many ways,
••• QB's are a key ingredient if you want to contend consistently. Like Coach said, we ID Jared and once we did, we wanted to figure out a way to go get him. I think we had the ammo to do it from a couple of trades and just working the system and that's what we did. Jared is going to be a key ingredient, but I think those players that I just mentioned and Jeff and his staff are one of the reasons that this was the right thing to do at the right time for us."

101- Marsha Hunt, legandary actress of Hollywood's Golden Age honored with First Annual "Marsha Hunt for Humanitiy Award
Hollywood, CA (April 12, 2015) -- Kat Kramer's Films That Change The World kicked off the Opening Night of the Seventh Annual Cinema Series on the evening of Friday, April 10, 2015 with a Screening and Panel Discussion about the film Bhopal: A Prayer of Rain at Canon U.S.A., Inc. in Hollywood, CA with the film's stars Martin Sheen and Mischa Barton; Director/Co-Writer, Ravi Kumar; Executive Producers Terrance Sweeney and Leszek Burzynski; Director of Photography Charlie Wuppermann; Distribution Executives, Seb Marciano and Daniel Brandt from Revolver Entertainment; and the event's Keynote Speaker, Tim Edwards, Executive Trustee of Bhopal Medical Appeal in attendance.
••••  Marsha Hunt, the legendary 97-year-old actress and social activist of Hollywood's Golden Age received a sustained standing ovation from a capacity crowd of 175 guests as she received the First Annual "Hunt For Humanity Award" for her social activism presented to her by Ken Howard, President of SAG-AFTRA.
••••   Kat Kramer, Founder, Presenter, Moderator and Producer of Kat Kramer's Films That Change The World, a Cinema Series showcasing motion pictures that raise awareness about important social issues, said:  "This kick-off event of my Seventh Annual Cinema Series was a fundraiser for Bhopal Medical Appeal, which provides medical assistance to ill survivors still dealing with serious health issues as a result of the world's worst industrial disaster over 30 years ago which happened at Union Carbide in Bhopal, India in 1984. We raised several thousand dollars at the event and more funding will be forthcoming in the next several weeks as a result of live streaming of the event worldwide via Global Content Media, LLC."
••••    Kat Kramer continued, "It was a great honor to have Ken Howard bestow upon Marsha Hunt my Cinema Series' First Annual 'Hunt For Humanity Award' to publicly acknowledge Ms. Hunt for her personal commitment to standing up for doing what is right, regardless of the repercussions, and for being one of the first high profile role models to use her celebrity for the benefit of helping others."
••••   Upon receiving the award at the event, Marsha Hunt said,
"My life has been a great ride with more than it's share of high points; even the lower points taught me and led me to higher ones.  In my teen years I thought I was born to act, but when my acting career was interrupted, I discovered a wonderful world of challenges, which became opportunities, opening up my life far beyond acting.  I am very grateful for all the good fortune I have been given in my blessed life.  Receiving this award reminds me of the best idea I've ever had, that of 'Thankful Giving,' on Thanksgiving Day by showing gratitude for what we have by passing a bowl around the table to take up a collection to share the monies with a charity of choice to ease hunger throughout the world for those who have far less than we do.  My concept of a new Thanksgiving observance called, 'Thankful Giving' was passed by both houses of Congress in 1978 and President Jimmy Carter advocated it in his proclamation."
••••   As Ken Howard introduced Marsha Hunt, the first recipient of the "Hunt For Humanity Award," he said: "I've had the opportunity to honor some very accomplished people over the years and it has been a moving and thrilling experience to do so, but tonight…tonight is special because of the recipient.  She is a giant among giants and a grand dame of cinema and entertainment.  She is described as kind, generous, thoughtful, brave and deeply concerned with the plight of her fellow humans.
••••    "Marsha started her career as a John Powers model in New York, but it wasn't long before she was in Hollywood and in the movies.  Her roles were many and varied and include more than 50 films for two major studios throughout the thirties and forties.  Her most notable accomplishments span the industry beginning in 1945, when she served on the board of directors of Screen Actors Guild for over two years and was an elected union leader protecting her fellow members during the presidencies of George Murphy, Robert Montgomery and Ronald Reagan.  She was a committed unionist and an engaged activist.  She was a staunch supporter of freedom of speech and could be counted on to fight for the First Amendment and for her friends and colleagues.
••••   "In 1947, Marsha flew East with a delegation of actors in support of the 'Hollywood Ten' who were appearing before the House on Un-American Activities.  The delegation of the 'Committee for the First Amendment,' as they called themselves included former S.A.G. board members Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, Danny Kaye, Sterling Hayden, Paul Henried, Jane Wyatt, Richard Conte, Geraldine Brooks, Sheppard Strudwick, June Havoc and others.  It was an act of bravery for which some members, including Marsha, would later pay a high price.
••••   "One year later, Marsha graced the cover of LIFE magazine's March 6 issue and just two short months after that, her name would appear on page 85 of Red Channels:  The Report on Communist Influence in Radio and Television.  Through that publication, her name was connected to seven activities and organizations deemed 'subversive' or 'Communist fronts.' Her open support for the 'Hollywood Ten' and her continued protests against their treatment resulted in the general 'gray-listing' of Marsha that would continue for decades.
••••    "Not one to stand still, Marsha became active in the San Fernando Valley chapter of the American Association for the United Nations, becoming its president in 1961.  In 1962, she was lucky to escape a terrorist bomb attack on the home of two minister-colleagues.  Fortunately, as was reported at the time, Marsha was spared when the terrorists were unable to find out where she lived.  She continued to work for the U.N. as a volunteer for many years and received an award for her service.
••••    "Although she was never called before the House on Un-American Activities Commission, the damage was effectively done and she would only rarely find film work throughout the next several decades.  By the sixties, she was semi-retired from the industry but still devoted to UNICEF, the United Nations, and various charitable organizations still working for humanity and fighting for justice.
••••  A writer, philanthropist and lifelong actor, Marsha remains a strong ally, an amazing performer and a tough cookie that can be relied upon to do the right thing especially in defense of free speech.  She is a true giant among her peers and an amazing force of life and light -- ladies and gentleman, it is my great privilege to present the first 'Hunt For Humanity Award' to the incomparable and incandescent -- the strong, the brave, the bold -- Marsha Hunt!"
••••  Actor Martin Sheen introduced the Keynote Speaker of the evening, Tim Edwards, Executive Trustee of Bhopal Medical Appeal by saying, "Arriving in the city of Bhopal in 1999 following a solo cycle ride from the United Kingdom, Tim found that the privilege of a first-world upbringing gave him the skills needed to advocate for the people he met in Bhopal -- people who possessed strength, humor, intelligence and resilience in abundance, but whose life circumstances had conspired to deny them a voice in the world.  Tim has advocated on behalf of Bhopal, advising on the social, legal, environmental and medical complexities of Union Carbide's disaster, ever since.  He was a founding trustee of the Bhopal Medical Appeal, and has been its managing trustee for the last four years.  Over this time, the two clinics supported by the Appeal in Bhopal, Sambhayna and Chingari, have helped relieve the suffering of thousands of gas and toxic water-affected men, women and children.  They are the only places in Bhopal where victims of Union Carbide's gas and water poisoning can receive medical care free of cost."
••••    Prior to the screening of the film, actress Mischa Barton, read a statement from one of her co-stars in the film, Kal Penn, who wasn't able to attend, saying:  "I wish I could be with all of you tonight, and thank you so much for supporting independent cinema; especially for supporting and showcasing stories that are often hard to tell, and include marginalized communities and world-events.  We shot Bhopal:  A Prayer For Rain six years ago.  As an actor, it's been a very emotionally powerful ride, seeing audience's reactions to the characters and story, and having a chance to be part of the dialogue after the film.  I know that Mischa, Martin and Ravi were able to join the conversation tonight.  I wish I could have been part of it, but in that absence, really wanted to thank you for the support, and for including this film and our wonderful cast and filmmakers in the process.  Many heartfelt thanks to all. -- Kal Penn"
Key Note Speech
••••     Tim Edwards, Executive Trustee of Bhopal Medical Appeal delivered the Keynote Speech, reflecting on the current status of survivors of the Bhopal tragedy over 30 years ago and what his organization is doing to help survivors of the tragedy.
•••  Edwards said, "We'll shortly be watching the most realistic recreation of Union Carbide Corporation's Bhopal gas disaster ever filmed.  Ravi (Kumar) approached me with his script nine years ago, and I must admit I had severe doubts it could ever succeed.  First, the script depicts events for which civil and criminal liability are still being contested in several courts. How would it be possible to make an engaging and truthful drama whilst avoiding offense to the victims or the accused?
••••    "Second, the Bhopal disaster was of a scale that defies ordinary comprehension, never mind visual framing.  Thirty tons of poisonous gas spread over five square miles of a densely populated city.  Eight to ten thousand people &endash; or possibly more, there are no precise figures &endash; dead within three days.  Over 570,000 surviving men, women and children damaged permanently by a cocktail of gases so toxic it stripped the lining from their lungs, ravaged their organs and scrambled their chromosomes.
••••     "Third, it's natural, when faced with an excess of human suffering, to shield our eyes, turnabout, and console ourselves with the thought, 'it is not I.'  Who would choose to watch?  I'm happy to say that my doubts were proven false.  Your presence here tonight demonstrates that there are people in this world who will not turn away, and who will not forget.
••••  "And (Bhopal:  A Prayer for Rain not only succeeds, it has given the survivors of Bhopal the means with which to make us all remember.  Critically, it shows us how an organizational culture driven by cost-cutting whose chief decision makers live far from the consequences of their choices can lead to human and environmental devastation.  The situation is neither historical nor exceptional.  It's estimated that 100 million Americans live downwind of toxic facilities today.
••••   "Just six years ago, an explosion at the former Union Carbide plant at Institute, West Virginia, came so close to igniting a large stockpile of deadly MIC that a Congressional enquiry concluded the event could easily have been 'a catastrophe rivaling the Bhopal disaster.'  We must never forget.  Bhopal is a disaster with a beginning, but no end.  It is happening still, and it is happening now, even as I speak these words to you.  It continues because pain and illness attached to every person the gas encountered.  They made acquaintance with the unborn too, via parents' blood, organs and genes.  The disaster ripples through succeeding generations, with no clear sense of where Union Carbide ends, and nature begins.
••••   "For many years after the gas, there was no help, and no hope.  The sound of hacking coughs filled the slums around Carbide's abandoned factory, from where other lethal poisons were now seeping.  Mental illness was at epidemic levels.  With tens of thousands of people too ill to work, deep poverty was rife.   Medical studies identified breathing problems, dizziness, cramps, reproductive disorders, growth retardation and cancers to be connected to gas exposure.  But health authorities continued to rely upon antibiotics and steroids, giving at best fleeting relief.  At worst, regular overuse of strong pharmaceuticals pummeled the bodies of those whose compromised immune systems had been likened to a form of 'chemical AIDS.'
••••    "Nor did medical studies inform the settlement offer India accepted from Union Carbide in 1989 which granted each victim the sum of $500 for lifelong injuries.  Numerous survivors, already punishingly poor, spent the compensation they were due many times over, before even receiving it.  Moneylenders feasted upon the plenty of desperation.  The story of one the first survivors I met, Mehboob Bi, will never leave me.  Her marriage to Chand Miya had been a love marriage:  this fact shone from the beautiful, beaming wedding photo upon her wall.  Mehboob Bi looked stunning, dressed in short kurta, two plaits, and curls plastered to the side of her cheeks.  One of her daughters said that she looked like Mala Sinha, the film star.  'No', said the younger one, she's like Sadhna -- another film star.
••••    "When we met, Mehboob Bi was in her late thirties, but looked closer to 60.  All youth and joy had withered during the 14 years she'd spent nursing her husband, desperately trying to ease his pains.  Chand Miya had held a prestigious job at Union Carbide.  'We were so happy,' she said.  'We used to be well off &endash; but our fate was written in Bhopal.  All of us breathed the gas but he breathed the most trying to help us.  When he got really ill and couldn't work we ran short of money.  He often told me not to spend on his medicines.  I said, 'My love, if we have life, we have the world.'  'I will die,' he said, 'don't waste your money on me.'  'And he did.  He left me alone.'
••••     "Realizing that they had been abandoned by all those with a duty of care, Bhopal's survivors made the decision to help themselves -- but they could not do it alone.  Our first Bhopal Medical appeal, placed in a UK newspaper 20 years ago, was a cry of fury and despair. Publication was risked on the wavering hope that this was not a world without care.  Nothing really prepared us for what happened next.  People from all over Britain responded in such numbers that our volunteers were entirely overwhelmed.  Weeks passed but supporters kept coming forward, one after another, with staggering, humbling open-heartedness.
••••   "It amounted to a wave of love, a wave that rolled six thousand miles at great speed and set in motion a fundamental change to a situation of profound despair.  You should know that nothing in Bhopal has quite been the same since. Survivors now had the means to participate in their own healing.  Their new clinic, Sambhavna, chose the Hippocratic dictum 'first do no harm' as its first principle.  Over half the professional staff would themselves be gas-affected.
••••     "Later, our charity also began to support the Chingari Trust, an organization begun by two women survivors to rehabilitate children being born damaged in Bhopal.  Doctors visiting communities living around the factory had observed they'd never seen so many cases of cerebral palsy in a single population.  The two survivors' clinics have now given free award-winning medical care to some 40,000 people who previously had nowhere left to turn.  They are the only places where families with damaged children can get free medical treatment and remedial therapy.
••••   "People with impaired immune systems can react badly to modern drugs so we combine safe modern treatment with Ayurvedic herbal medicine, massage and yoga.  Our volunteers help control the spread of TB and malaria and have won clean water for 22 communities whose sources were poisoned.  Our health workers administer the only cervical screening program in the whole city.
••••   "In Chingari today you may see children who could not stand, let alone walk or run, playing happily with their friends.  Children once unable to talk now chatter fluently.  We cherish the fact that 21 of our special children now go to normal schools.  The Bhopal Medical Appeal's work, every bit of it, is entirely dependent upon the continued support of individuals, individuals like you &endash; without this, it will vanish.
••••   "A colleague of mine, Indra Sinha, wrote:  'A great catastrophe, followed by years of illness, poverty and injustice, can overwhelm and crush the human spirit, or it can enable ordinary people to discover that they are extraordinary.  Such people find that they have the grit to survive, the defiance to face their persecutors, and the courage to fight back.  Out of shared struggle, even in the midst of terrible sickness, comes strength, the joy of friendship, the realization that they are not weak, powerless or contemptible, but possessed of great power &endash; the power to bring about political change, to do real good in their community and in the world.
••••  "To everybody involved in the making of Bhopal:  A Prayer for Rain, to everyone who worked so hard to make this wonderful event possible, and to each of you here in attendance I want to say a heartfelt thank you on behalf of our charity, the Bhopal Medical Appeal, but most of all on behalf of our thousands of service users in Bhopal.  Thank you for choosing to be a part of that change."
•••• Ravi Kumar, Director and Co-Writer of the film Bhopal:  A Prayer For Rain, said: "Our film will make its next bow on May 10, 2015 in Monte Carlo at the Monaco Charity Film Festival.  Then, in August/September of 2015 the movie will receive its Premiere in the United Kingdom."  For additional information and to make donations to Bhopal Medical Appeal, please visit www.bhopalmovie.com.

The First Annual 'Marsha Hunt For Humanity Award,' will presented to the person the award is named for, the legendary actress Marsha Hunt, whose courage and determination to speak out for causes she believes in, and to help affect change, are nothing short of remarkable.

••••   As a result of her actions, Ms. Hunt was blacklisted in Hollywood for at least a decade in the prime of her career as an actress.  Ms. Hunt's accomplishments both as an actress, and as a social activist to affect positive changes for the many causes she has championed during her lifetime will be recognized at our event on April 10th with great fanfare."

101- Stephen Colbert to host the "Late Show" in 2015
Will the real Stephen Colbert please stand up.
After much speculation, and exactly a week after David Letterman announced his plans to retire, the fast-sprung news has settled in that Stephen Colbert, the host, writer and executive producer of "The Colbert Report," will replace Dave Letterman as host of the "Late Show" in 2015. Now that leaves us with the question, what character is going play the host." CBS CEO Les Moonves explained that Cobert would not host the show as blustering character. "What you're going to get is the real Stephen Colbert." "He said it's time to do something different. If he's going to be on our air for 20 years, as we all hope, it's not humanly possible to keep that character going.
•••• We've seen who the real Colbert is from time to time, and it's that guy that would make for a perfectly serviceable late-night talk show host. On the few occasions he's broken with character -- appearing as a guest on other talk shows, for instance -- he seems like a down-to-earth, likable and still very funny man.
•••• He and his Colber Report writing team are so sophisticated in their humor that it literally took years for many viewers to understand that the self-aggrandizing, and often self-contradicting conservative posturing was a joke.
••a• Satire demands a high level of discomfort from its audience and Colbert is a comedian who believes that humor works best when it has something to say. And much of what Stepehen Colbert has said is quite impressive.
•••• Though he like Leno and Letterman, will no doubt deal with politics, he will have to soften his barbs. It is difficult, however, to imagine Colbert giving up radical nuns and fascinating scientists to spend night after night chatting with A listers with movies to tout. More problematic is how, or rather if, his polictical and religious hmuor and general comedic ruthlessness will play on CBS. Let's wait and see, come 1915.
