First films set the pace for new movie directors

  Ongoing tributes to the recently departed filmmaker, Maryo J. delos Reyes, have reminded viewers of his early movies---and the reminder, in turn, has made film buffs realize the importance and significance of cinematic artists' first films as key indicators of their cumulative career arc. Maryo's case is a great example of this predicative and "predictive" thrust, because he began his full-length filmmaking career with a bang, by way of the "syndrome" movie, "High School Circa '65" (1979). The seminal and "inseminating" film was a particularly strong and telling debut, because it was so difficult to make. Unlike many movies that involve mainly just a couple of prot...Keep on reading: First films set the pace for new movie directors.....»»

A neighbor’s smoke is toxic—especially to children

That nasty smell is the first thing you notice. Cigarette smoke is inside your house. But you don't smoke -- so how's it getting in there?   Truth is, secondhand smoke is sneaky. It doesn't need an open door or window to enter your apartment. A neighbor's smoke can travel through tiny cracks in the floors, walls, pipes, ventilation systems, and even electrical outlets.   Each year secondhand smoke kills 41,000 nonsmoking adults and 400 innocent children. In adults, secondhand smoke causes stroke, heart disease and lung cancer. To top it off, children exposed to secondhand smoke are at increased risk of sudden infant death syndrome, asthma attacks, and bronchi...Keep on reading: A neighbor’s smoke is toxic—especially to children.....»»

The last thing we want is for a member of the family to spend the rest of the season in a hospital, or worse, for the family to grieve over the sudden death of a loved one.
