Don't Look Away

#DoNoLookAway

A few times at work, church, schools, and clubs I have seen predators trying move in on their victims every time I warned them friendly You don't want to do this please stop but if you continue I have to report you. The first three organization asked me to look away, let's give him/her another chance, we want to be sensitive to the feelings of this person and did not take any action or value in my warnings. The club security talked to the victim and removed the predator form their premises. Later the girl came to me and said "Why did you do that nobody has done such thing for me before " So please don’t not look away. This not just for Batman but for all people who have eyes to see and a mouth to report and authority who did not do anything Shame On You !!
Yesterday afternoon I entered the Film Supply contest and decided that it was time to share this in film.

La mejor manera de saber de dónde provienen los alimentos es cultivarlos uno mismo.

El chef Jonathan Karpathios cultiva sus propias verduras, se encarga de su propio invernadero y cría sus propios cerdos. Y si hay algo que él mismo no puede producir, lo adquiere a nivel local.

Es su receta para salvar el mundo.

Philip van Traa on B.'s Rooftop Garden



Benny Vink & Philip van Traa
                             
Today we continued to follow Philip van Traa (Grown Down Town) as he shared his vision for the Rooftop Garden at B.: A garden that invites it’s visitors to look around the corner. And an integrated garden. There are plans for chickens, for example. In his vision they feed off the leftover food that comes from the restaurant, while they fertilize the vegetables and fruit, which in turn can be served in B.’s restaurant.
