    8000 Miles to Alaska: A Journey Along the Longest Border in the World | Free Documentary Nature

    What is America? Just a huge, spacious and naturally wild country - or is it still a project? And who are the Americans? A torn nation of people without roots and history - or more than all of this? What unites, what divides, what characterises and what changes them? How different are their daily lives, even now, in the icy cold, snowbound winter - depending on whether they live on Maine's remote outer islands, or in arctic Deadhorse, near the Great Lakes or in the prairies of the mid-West, in the Blackfoot reservation in the Rocky Mountains, or on board a yacht from Seattle?

    To discover America's characteristics and their transition - always with a view to the people and how they perceive home - Klaus Scherer travels through his host country on a route hitherto neglected by previous reporters: along the north border. Thus, a program event is created, whose highly visual landscape and nature photographs, along with personal experiences, connect with those we meet, visit and accompany along the way - from the dwarf school on Monehegan Island, to the head gaffer of the Niagara Falls; from wolf and bear monitors in Idaho, to the ice fishers at the Arctic Circle.

  • From Panama to the Cocos Islands

    44:40

    Whoever wants to experience South America as a nature paradise in a small area, should explore Costa Rica. Almost half of the country is covered by rain forest. Numerous animal species are to be found here like the White faced Capuchin, colourful parrots like the Macaw, Veruga Parakeets and Tapirs.

    Also lizards from primeval times have their habitat in this region of the planet. The small central American nation not only fascinates with a rich fauna and flora but also with a wonder world under water. Insights into the fascinating world of the jungle show examples like the epiphytes that make their way to the sky at the expense of her host plant.

    A view into the culture of the Indian inhabitants of the rain forest of course does not come too briefly either. A diving excursion through the ocean waters of Cocos Island is the highlight of the journey. The spectator will get flesh crawl while watching hundreds of dangerous hammerhead sharks gliding past the camera.

  • Beautiful Sardinia - The magic island in the Mediterranian Sea

    43:36

    Sardinia is the second-largest island in the Mediterranean. The Sardin-ians themselves say it's a continent for itself, a virtual world of its own, full of magic: A beach, gleaming in unreal pink shades, red corals protect against the evil eye and the inhabitants seem to remain forever young. On Sardinia, the owners of luxury yachts adopt sheep, fish have gold in their bellies and a giant mussel supplies the material for legendary sea silk. No one is surprised, that the Madonna goes on a sea cruise once a year.

  • Capri and its Blue Grotto - Italys Legends by the Sea

    43:38

    Capri was already in ancient times a place for the rich and beautiful. Today Capri is one of the most famous islands in the world. Millions of tourists visit it. But there are in fact still unknown corners on the island in the Gulf of Naples.

    Thus, at the very top of Capri, there is a hermit monastery with a view to the Vesuvius. Vittorio Staiano and Carmine Russo have to ring the bells at exactly twelve o'clock. But the way to the monastery is not so easy, a chair lift and a steep path await them; as a reward, a good coffee in the chapel beckons with heavenly peace.

    In the hustle and bustle that reigns among them, Michele Balsamo gets his jewel back into shape. He is the proud winner of the Vespa Club. His Ape tricycle transporter with curtains, jukeboxes and romantic lighting has been voted the most beautiful on the island.

    The most famous spot of Capri is not on the island, but below it: La Grotta Azzurra. When the sea is calm, Roberto rows tourists into the Blue Grotto in a tiny boat and sings in phenomenal acoustics, waiting for a decent tip. There is competition for the paying guests. Word has long since got around which nationalities are particularly generous and which are not.

    Opposite Capri is the Amalfi Coast. Legendary places like Sorrento or Positano lie on the steep coast between Naples and Salerno. Who wants to build on this panorama road, calls Giovanni Bottone. He runs a transport company with mules and is well known. He is in charge of several construction sites at the same time, all of which can only be reached by stairs. It is often necessary to climb over 500 steps. Then only Giovanni's animals carry bricks or mortar. But there are also places where not even his donkeys can get to.

    The small bay Conca dei Marini can only be reached from the water. There, the Lauritanos run the restaurant La Tonnarella. In former times the tuna fish were gathered here, since the 1950s they were not seen here anymore. But Jacky Kennedy came as a guest to the bay and ate a pasta in the beach cottage of Umberto. That was the beginning of the restaurant. Today Umbertos young granddaughters run the shop with the difficult logistics and the risk that not one guest will come in rough seas.

    The Morvillo fishing family also depends on the weather. They are the only ones on the coast who are allowed to fetch Gamberetti from the sea. Her catch is so coveted that it is sold directly from the cutter. The director of the Marine National Park makes sure that this family remains the only shrimp fisher. He also uses the so-called sea sweeper every day, a floating rust bucket that collects garbage between Sorrento and Amalfi.

    Maria Cirillo trains with her rescue dogs in the place that gave the coast its name. She makes Golden Retriever get people who threaten to drown out of the water. But before the work begins, there is a coffee at the bar and a round of cornetti for the dogs. Who knows what will happen on the busy beach?

  • Mallorca - Living the local life on the largest island of the Balearics

    43:32

    Cleaning woman island, concrete castles, Ballermann: Mallorca's image is negatively affected in some respects. The documentary explores the charm of the largest Balearic island beyond the hustle and bustle of tourism and Rambazamba.

    The real Mallorca is best explored through real Majorcans: Manolo Barahona, TV fishing expert from the local island broadcaster IB3, faces the most difficult task of the year. The Raor is in season, the most expensive fish on the island. Manolo is supposed to get him first in front of the camera and then in the pan. There's only one catch, the little fish with the piranha teeth just doesn't want to be on TV.

    In the first months of the year Mallorca turns into a sea of almond blossoms. There are around seven million almond trees on the island, once planted to replace dead vines. But now also the almond trees are threatened. The fire bacterium continues to spread, especially on the large plantations. The farmer Biel Torrens wants to save Mallorca's almond trees and fruit with a small organic plantation and gentle harvesting methods. He shakes the almonds from the tree by hand instead of using a mechanical vibrator.

    Cap de Formentor is the northernmost point of Mallorca. The Mallorcans call it the meeting point of the winds. Stones have always played a very special role in this rocky and rough region. The famous stone throwers, the Foners, once fought for the armies of Rome and Carthage. The Foners of today only compete in sports competitions. Old master Diego Camuñas makes his own slingshots, braided from the fibres of the Agave.

    Jaume Gual hangs again over the side of the patrol boat and looks into the tube. Caught: a false parker at sea! The motorboat tourist has anchored in the middle of a seagrass meadow. That gives a book reference and a hefty fine. Before Mallorca you will find the largest Neptune grass meadows in the Mediterranean area. They are considered the lungs of the sea and are endangered by ruthless tourists.

    A few years ago Francisco Pizá Bordoy opened his beach bar near Ses Salines. Whoever runs such a chiringuito is also responsible for the entire beach operation. He has to employ lifeguards, keep the sand clean, set up sufficient toilets and of course loungers. In short: provide total relaxation for the guests. The beach entrepreneur himself can rarely relax, as he is a policeman in his main job. The lease contract for his beach section is limited in time. And the competition doesn't sleep.

  • Nicholas Burns: The Crisis in United States Global Leadership

    1:7:10

    Nicholas Burns will join Jane Wales for a conversation focused on the major trends challenging global peace and stability today. These include, first and foremost, the weakening US leadership role around the world and US-China competition for power in the Indo-Pacific. Recent developments in the US-led international effort to halt the nuclear programs in Iran on the one hand, and North Korea on the other, will also be explored. The prospects for stability in both the Middle East and in Europe, as well as the deepening political crisis here at home will be considered.

    Ambassador (ret.) Burns, now professor of the practice of diplomacy and international relations at the Harvard Kennedy School, served in the United States government for twenty-seven years. As a career foreign service officer, he was under secretary of state for political affairs from 2005 to 2008 where he led negotiations for long-term military assistance agreement with Israel and acted as lead US negotiator for Iran’s nuclear program.

    The extreme winter cold of the American north, which hampers both the travel and the work of the reporter and his team, is depicted emphatically.

    52:17

    Geographical challenges, from the Sahara Desert in the north, to the dense tropical jungles of the midsection, to the arid and mountainous south, have stymied Africa’s development. Local plants and animals are hard to cultivate; thousands of languages divide the populace; and arbitrary political borders pit ethnicities against one another.

  • Why Alaska Owns The Coast - Alaska boundary dispute

    10:06

    If you ever look at a map of North West (North) America, you will notice that Alaska seems to overstay its welcome down the coast.

    Why does Alaska, and thus the USA, own a huge chunk of real estate stretching down Canada's coastline? Why doesn't Alaska end right here instead of traveling thousands of miles down the shoreline?

    That very same question has a long history, full of drama, and may have been the spark of Canada's independence movement.
    ----

    Our tale begins in the early era of 1825, when the Russian empire met the British Empire in Canada.
    The Anglo-Russian Convention of 1825, which not only sought out to handle this problem but to also ensure the British passage of ships in the Russian pacific.

    Flash forward to 1839 when the Hudson Bay company won a monopoly for fur trapping in the area (again, screw over any locals living here, because of capitalism), in exchange for some furs sent to Russia each year. So local British Canadians and Natives had defacto rulership over the area, despite falling under the Russian empire.

    In steps USA. In 1867, USA bought Alaska for 7.2 million. In todays money, that is 124 million today. Still very cheap for the vast resources of oil and gold. Included in this purchase was the Alaskan panhandle, despite still being under control of the Hudson bay company fur trappers (and trice again, screw over the natives because imperialism).

    The British Columbia government, who represented the fur trappers' interests and other locals that had settled in the region, protested the claim but their voices were ignored in Washington, Ottowa, and London.

    In 1871 this escalated with the newly formed Canadian Confederation, who requested a survey of the area with the USA to properly determine the border.

    In 1897, gold fever swept the region and over 30,000 prospectors descended on the area to find gold, with up to 100,000 passing through the region to access the richer Alaskan and North Canada regions like the Klondike. Suddenly everyone wanted to be in the area and the region's status became very important.
    Canada wanted access to a seaport along the coast to move its vast gold reserves, and there were rumors that Canadian citizens were harassed by local United States prospectors, to prevent them from making land claims in the area.

    To secure a route to the sea, Canada dispatched a squadren of mounted police to the Lynn canal, claiming under the original 1825 convention the region was well within Canada's borders. Retreating from a large crowd of america prospectors at Skagway, the mounties set up two defence points on the mountains of Chilkoot and White Passes with Gatling guns, a fort upriver with 200 soldiers ready to deploy at any time.

    Finally, in 1903, a tribunal of six politicians was convened to put the situation to rest. It consisted of three US senators, two politicians from Canada from Toronto and Ottowa, and a British lord (this is important later).

    The group set to work diving up the coastline, figuring out what the french words really meant, and which channel islands belonged to whom. Historians looking back on the final outcome have determined that they were relatively fair, but it seems that the British gave too many concessions to the USA such as splitting up the channel islands. In the end, the new deal had two Canadians votes against and four votes for.

    In fact, remember that British lord, Lord Alverstone? He voted in favor of the deal. Turns out that he was working on the side of the British and not the Canadians, and offered to make concessions to the Americas to improve relations of their country. These concessions were roped in with fishing rights and facilitating access to the Panama canal.

    This left a bad taste in the Canadian mouth. There was a lord from England who, while the deal ended up being relatively fair, was working for Britain's best interests and not Canada. Canadians felt that the whole debarked should have been put in front of the Hauge, or that American judges from the supreme court be used instead of politicians. This deal should have been about people and not politics.

    Had the United States been willing to submit her case to The Hague, or to an impartial juridical body, as Canada had desired, the result would have been, in all probability, substantially the same, except that Canadians could not feel that they had been unfairly treated

    This action leads to protests across the country and a surge of Canadian nationalism. Surprisingly, anger wasn't directed towards America although the event did disrupt a 1911 free trade agreement, but rather towards the British empire. In fact, the whole event could be considered the spark for Canada to distance itself away from the crown.

    Anger towards Britain would subside in years after, but Canada would never forget the bad taste of betrayal.

  • Melting the Ice Curtain: The Extraordinary Story of Citizen Diplomacy on the Russia-Alaska Frontier

    44:45

    At the height of dangerous Cold War tensions, Alaskan and Russian “citizen diplomats” reunited long-separated Native families across the Bering Strait and launched a 30-year era of perilous yet prolific progress. Long-time Alaska journalist David Ramseur relies on his 15 visits to Russia to tell a story of inspiration, courage and persistence in his book, 'Melting the Ice Curtain: The Extraordinary Story of Citizen Diplomacy on the Russia-Alaska Frontier'.

    Born in Oceanside, CA, Ramseur is a 40-year Alaskan who served as a top aide to two Alaska governors and one of its U.S. senators. He helped organize the first American jet to land in the remote Soviet Far East in 1988 and lived and worked in the USSR in 1993. Ramseur’s book was translated into Russian in 2018 and he distributed it across 11,000 miles of the Russian Far East at the invitation of the U.S. Consulate in Vladivostok. He is a visiting scholar in public policy at the University of Alaska’s Institute of Social and Economic Research.

  • Canada-U.S. Border Transportation Innovation in the Age of America First pt 1

    1:18:35

    Travel and trade across the U.S.-Canada border are staggering in volume and value. Canada is the largest passenger gateway into the United States, with tens of millions of passengers entering from there every year. Cross-border goods trade was valued at over half a trillion dollars in 2016. With or without an updated NAFTA, continuing growth in cross-border passenger travel and cargo transport is expected in coming decades. Given future immigration, trade, and terrorism concerns, the imperatives of border security and efficiency are more important than ever. Artificial intelligence, biometrics, facial recognition, and the use of digital identities could radically transform the future of cross-border transportation, but they also raise serious privacy and resource concerns for policymakers.

  • Roads in Canada, what are they really like?

    59

    What are the roads in Canada like?
    Riding your motorcycle in Canada you will want to know what the roads are like... Sooooo
    The roads are pretty damn good, considering Canada is known for it's long winters and cold temperatures. The roads all across Canada will see some sort of repair or major construction through out the spring, summer and fall. Main Highways and secondary roads are all paved, with so many thousands of miles of roads there will also be some gravel roads.



    The Trans-Canada Highway, otherwise known as #1 highway, stretches from the west coast of Victoria British Columbia and ends at the east coast at St. John's Newfoundland, over 8000km (5000 miles). It is all 4 lane highway that for the most part is in good condition, as always it will depend on the severity of the previous winter and all the heavy traffic that uses the road.

    Be prepared for great highways, super secondary roads and some gravel when in rural areas. Construction happens from spring to fall, be prepared to come across a construction zone, perfect time to have a look around to see the amazing Canadian beauty!

    Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago.

    Learning by listening is a great way to:
    - increases imagination and understanding
    - improves your listening skills
    - improves your own spoken accent
    - learn while on the move
    - reduce eye strain

    Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

    We, the Stó:lō have lived in S'ólh Téméxw, our traditional territory since time immemorial. Nearly 200 years ago, European newcomers (Xwelitem) began immigrating into and transforming our territory. This event marked the beginning of an era of great transformation. Transformations are not new to us. We are a people whose life ways and history are built on the concept of transformation. We, the Stó:lō, believe it is important to share our Sqwelsqwel or news of the not so distant past with newcomers. In this video we have aimed at addressing the impacts on Stó:lō culture and heritage from the arrival of Xwelitem to current issues and conflicts.

    SeeHearSayLearn.com presents a series of videos to get you speaking and learning languages such as English, Spanish / Espanol, French, German, Albanian, Arabic, and more. We are working hard to get our videos uploaded. We provide you with word pronunciations, definitions, translations, stories, rhymes, riddles, jokes, tongue twisters, and anything that will help bridge the gap between your current fluency to your desired proficiency and understanding. Whether you're just learning or trying to bolster your intellectual quotient into a new stratosphere of concise and succinct communications, allocating the proper verbiage could be paramount to illustrating a picture for the recipient or merely shoving drab nondescript sounds of failure down their auditory meatuses. Run on sentence you say? I'd agree. Utilizing big complicated words isn't usually the most effective form of communication, but adapting your language to your recipient will be the most effective way to transfer your thoughts. Having a wide array of tools for each project will allow you to tailor your message for the most effect and efficient use of your time. To write, read, and listen to language takes fewer words than you might imagine. In each language, you could likely get away with understanding a few thousand words and be completely comfortable with many different language settings. Why even a few hundred can get you quite far.

    If ever you find any of the words to be inaccurate in any way, which may most often be the pronunciation I want to thank anyone who reaches out to send me a message regarding any errors. I will do my best to read and correct any perceived errors. Be advised that many pronunciation can vary slightly between regions.

    My congratulations to anyone broadening their word bank in any language. Science is clear that with more word associations languages become easier to learn and has the potential to be a protective buffer against dementia and Alzheimer's Disease.

  • Forging a Cherokee-American Alliance in the Creek War by Susan Abram

    53:57

    In this presentation, historian and author Susan Abram discussed the role of the Cherokee soldiers who fought alongside American troops against the Red Stick Creeks in the Creek War of 1813-1814. Abram demonstrated the pivotal changes this alliance had upon Cherokee culture and society. The victory over the Red
    Sticks strengthened the resolve of the Cherokee veterans who served in tribal leadership positions after the war. They hoped
    to maintain the American alliance, and often used their service during the Creek War as an argument against removal, which
    ultimately occurred in 1838.

    Susan Abram received her doctorate from Auburn University in 2009. She is the author of Forging a Cherokee-American
    Alliance in the Creek War: From Creation to Betrayal, which received the 2013 Anne B. and James B. McMillan Prize in
    Southern History by the University of Alabama Press. Abram’s other publications include The Cherokee Beloved Occupation:
    Warfare, Gender, and Community; New Men: Essays on Manliness in Early America; and Cherokees in the Creek War in
    Tohopeka: Rethinking the Creek War and the War of 1812. She serves as president of the North Carolina Trail of Tears
    Association which works with the National Park Service to promote, protect, and interpret the Trail of Tears National Historic
    Trail.

    Admission to Food for Thought presentations is always FREE. The public is invited to bring a brown bag lunch. For additional information call (334) 353-4689. Food for Thought 2018 is sponsored by the Friends of the Alabama Archives and made possible with support from the daughters of Judge Alex A. Marks, in his memory.

    The Alabama Department of Archives and History is the state’s government records repository, special collections library and
