    snow camping – 2010 – Schneezelten (English subtitles)

    OK It’s shortly after 5 pm, the tent is put up (more or less). Let’s step back a bit for a better view. Looks a bit botchy 😉 We’re somewhere in the Franconian Forest, the depth of the snow is far beyond half a meter which we had to shovel away nearly to the ground level, (here you can see the wall) to drive the tent pegs into the earth. But now the tent will keep stable, here we’re going to spend the night. The sun has (as you can see) already set. Everywhere… nothing. We take up quarters now, 9:45 pm, pitch-black, cold as ice 11 pm, nearly -17°C…

    Robert Reich: The Military-Industrial Drain

    As Trump stokes tensions around the world, he’s adding fuel to the fire by demanding even more Pentagon spending. It’s a dangerous military buildup intended to underwrite endless wars and enrich defense contractors while draining money from investments in the American people. President Dwight D. Eisenhower once noted, “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.” Eisenhower was a Republican and a former general who helped win World War II for the Allies, and yet, he understood America’s true priorities. But Washington–and especially Trump–have…

    Wild Times At the Westway Homeless Shelter

    We returned to the Westway Motor Inn in Queens – which now operates as a full time homeless shelter – to confirm a broken air conditioning system we exposed in last week’s report…had in fact, been repaired – as promised by WIN, the non-profit that runs the facility. If you recall, homeless mother Medena Greene took our thermometer inside her single shelter room, where it was ninety-five degrees. “INSIDE TEMPERATURE IS 95.1.” But fast forward a week…and homeless families tell us everything is cool once again at the Westway. A WIN spokesperson even sent us a photo of the new A/C system. A spokesperson for WIN tells PIX11, But while…
