The Four Oxen and the Lion
A Lion used to prowl about a field in which Four Oxen used to live. Many a time he tried to attack them; but whenever he came near, they turned their tails to one another, so that whichever way he approached them he was met by the horns of one of them. At last, however, they quarreled among themselves, and each went off to pasture alone in a separate corner of the field. Then the Lion attacked them one by one and soon made an end of all four.

House fires have changed. The New York Fire Department is rethinking its tactics for residential fires, while trying to hold onto its culture of “aggressive interior firefighting" - charging inside burning buildings as fast as possible.
Plastic flllings in sofas and mattresses burn much fasterthan older fillings like cotton, helping to transform the behavior of house flres in the last few decades, fireflghters and engineers say. With more plastic in homes, residential flres are now likely to use up all the oxygen in a room before they consume all flammable materiais.
“Years ago you could break a window and it took the fire several minutes to develop — or tens of minutes”, a fire battalion chief in Queens, George K. Healy, said. “Now we're learning when you vent that window or the door, the fire is developing in, say, a minute.”

A proposta da capa da revista, associando aspectos verbais e visuais, transmite a seguinte mensagem:
Filmed over nearly three years, WASTE LAND follows renowned artist Vik Muniz as he journeys from his home base in Brooklyn to his native Brazil and the world's largest garbage dump, Jardim Gramacho, located on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. There he photographs an eclectic band of “catadores” — self-designated pickers of recyclable materiais. Muniz’s initial objective was to “paint” the catadores with garbage. However, his collaboration with these inspiring characters as they recreate photographic images of themselves out of garbage reveals both the dignity and despair of the catadores as they begin to re-imagine their lives. Director Lucy Walker (DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND, BLINDSIGHT and COUNTDOWN TO ZERO) and co-directors João Jardim and Karen Harley have great access to the entire process and, in the end, offer stirring evidence of the transformative power of art and the alchemy of the human spirit.

If You’re Out There
If you hear this message
Wherever you stand
I'm calling every woman
Calling every man
We're the generation
We can't afford to wait
The future started yesterday
And we're already late
We've been looking for a song to sing
Searched for a melody
Searched for someone to lead
We've been looking for the world to change
If you feel the same, we'll go on and say
If you're out there
Sing along with me if you're out there
I'm dying to believe that you're out there
Stand up and say it loud if you're out there
Tomorrow's starting now...now...now [...]
We can destroy Hunger
We can conquer Hate
Put down the arms and raise your voice
We're joining hands today [...]
