Thank you for your comments. I like to hear more of your thoughts on the connections between transportation infrastructure and food security some time. I believe the video that I posted under design and planning on the boldfood group page talks a little bit about transportation as well. In the US, many municipalities seem limited in their ability to increase food security except in terms of transportation to grocery stores. I do agree that there is a large issue with subsidies and the quality of foods consumed by many Americans. Hmmm, there are some interesting documents that I will share links to on the boldfood group page.

Thanks Miti!

I had a great time too. Seeing our culture from an outside perspective is somehow so much fun for me! We get to see which things we take for granted can see so illogical from the outside--like getting several courses in a fancy meal rather than one big portion...I love it...and poor John, it was also so late and you all had been going strong all day (and probably all week). I think things are always more tiring in a different culture & especially in a different language. 

I would love to see how we could help ensure you get your video/media skills! I will call Ashara tomorrow anyway, so I will ask her more about how to make it happen. I'll reach out to Wendy and Andrea if need be, too. There is an event scheduled at our offices--I think it's April 8th. You should make sure you are signed up to go to that. We can make sure to get you on camera or behind the scenes in some way!

Hope you are well & feeling welcomed!

Miti,

 


I wanted to reach out to each of you and let you know I will be moderating the BoldFood panel from 3:30-4:45 on the Auraria campus. I am hoping that in the next couple of days  you will be able to contact me and provide me with an overview of the presentation you are planning to give a week from today. I also would like to know of any technical support you may need. The space should be wired for the use of power point presentations etc. but the sooner I know any needs you may have the sooner I can make sure that those needs will be met.

From what I understand, we will have only about 10 minutes per presenter and I will need 10-15 minutes for Question and Answers. I encourage you to be aware of the short time while preparing you presentation and I will make sure that we all keep to the allotted time.

Miti--I spoke with some folks at my work & it seems that Bold Leaders is renewing their membership at my organization, which allows them 4 free classes. I would suggest they let you take 2 of those. You could learn: "Field Production" & "Final Cut Pro"--the editing software. Once you have taken these courses, you'lll be able to check out an amazing assortment of equipment under the Bold Leaders membership. I hope this can work out! The schedule is at http://denveropenmedia.org/classes . You may need to have Brady or Wendy advocate for you on this if you hit any closed doors. Please let me know how it goes...If all else fails I have a camcorder we could use if you had a specific project you want to work on.

Many Blessings!
