Yellowstone National Park!

Hi Everyone!

I just wanted to let you know that I will be interning at the Yellowstone Research Library this summer which means my posting will be even more sporadic than it already has been due to lack of internet access.

Yellowstone is beautiful though, and there are many amazing documentaries about the park.I’ve already watched Secret Yellowstone and Christmas in Yellowstone, and I would recommend either which are both available via NetFlix.  The library I work for has over 100 documentaries, as well as clips from news programs, and even the Daily Show.  I also can’t wait for the new Ken Burns documentary National Parks – America’s Best Idea.

If you want to go on a short 5 minute virtual tour, I’ve included the YouTube video below.  It’s beautiful and I hope you enjoy!

Finding Bibi — A Documentary about Identity and Understanding

I caught a glimpse of this video on Facebook and it looked amazing to me.  I thought I would share it with you all.  It has gotten me thinking about how, living in an increasingly globalized world, we can build understanding and trust between people of different cultures.  President Obama’s first major television interview was with Al Arabiya in the hopes to do just that.

Like President Obama, the filmmaker, Bita has lived as a cultural hybrid, and experienced different views on women and their role in society.  How can we all learn and grow so that men and women around the world can become educated partners instead of adversaries?
