Smartphone Addiction: A Comedic #Documentary

20 Oct

“We all love smartphones. That’s why we have one.

Without a doubt, almost everything is a touch away with the use of smart phones; one can stay updated with online news, one can look at the newest trending video, and one can remain connected with a friend halfway across the world. Although the smart phone is a technology that can gather everything at our fingertips and help people stay connected with the world, ironically it disconnects people from the real world and results in a technological epidemic.

Yes, smart phones gives us ease of access to everything; yes, we can stay connected with our friends have way across the world; yes, our Instagram or Twitter followers are important, but we must learn how to get in and get back into our world. People should be able to feel that they’re connected, but not so that they must do it every ten minutes. Limiting exposure is the first step of being cured from this technological epidemic. The emancipation of our smart phones and our soul is what will make this technology truly productive and innovative.”

NerdTV and Documentary: #Wings of Madness

9 Oct

“In the early 1900s, the most acclaimed celebrity in Europe, and arguably the world, was a fashionable, frail, Brazilian-born aviator named Alberto Santos-Dumont. The first to fly an airplane in Europe, Santos also built and flew the first practical dirigibles, or powered balloons. At a period when most balloons were at the mercy of the wind and many still thought the airplane an impossibility, Santos’s bold exploits created a sensation. He was the spiritual father of aviation, and at the same time, a flying P.T. Barnum, intrepidly demonstrating his incredible flying machines in Paris, London, New York, and St. Louis.

But Santos’s burst of glory was short-lived. When the secretive Wright brothers finally unveiled their flying machine in France in 1908, Wilbur’s piloting skills dazzled the public and instantly eclipsed Santos’s fame. Over the next three decades, Santos slipped gradually into illness and despair until he finally committed suicide, tormented by knowing that the airplane, which he believed to be his invention, had become a lethal weapon of war.

“Wings of Madness” tells the colorful and tragic life of this neglected pioneer, a brilliant technical improviser who cut an unforgettable figure of high fashion in turn-of-the-century Paris. Always impeccably tailored, Santos delighted in steering his airship down the boulevards and dropping in at cafés or the garden parties of his wealthy friends, while suffering numerous scrapes among the rooftops of Paris. His friend Louis Cartier, the Parisian jeweler, created the first wristwatch specifically so that Santos could keep track of time while maneuvering his airship.

In the 1890s, Santos inherited a fortune from his Brazilian coffee plantation-owning family and threw himself obsessively into solving the challenge of flight. With characteristic ingenuity, Santos figured out how to combine gasoline engines with hydrogen balloons and avoid the explosions that everyone predicted. A landmark, prize-winning flight around the Eiffel Tower in 1901 turned him into an instant celebrity; the press and public affirmed that mankind had indeed conquered the skies.

Tiring of balloons, Santos built the 14bis, an ungainly tail-first flying machine that nevertheless made the first powered airplane flight in Europe in 1906. At that time, the Wright brothers’s secret early flights were widely disbelieved, so Santos and his adoring public were convinced he was the first to fly. When Wilbur made his triumphant European tour in 1908, Santos had to face the terrible realization that the Wrights were the true pioneers after all. But just before his long slide into illness began, he designed an exquisite new airplane out of bamboo: the Demoiselle, or Damselfly. One of the classic aircraft of the pioneering era, it was the true forerunner of today’s ultralight planes.

“Wings of Madness” combines captivating hands-on technology with a human story of triumph and tragedy. The program includes rare movie archive footage of Santos’s original flights as well as new footage of the recent building of a 14bis replica in Brazil. The hair-raising test flights of this modern replica evoke the ingenuity and extreme courage of Alberto Santos-Dumont as he pursued his lifelong dream of flight.”
