LP_image_PoodwaddleLiveWorldClock_screenshot

A woman contracts malaria. A man suffers his first stroke. A war robs a family of their lives. As much as we lament these misfortunes, we still feel detached from them—keen on viewing disasters as hypothetical scenarios rather than as distinct daily possibilities. How differently would we react to these events if we could fathom their daily or yearly impact? If we could pinpoint the escalating rates of births, deaths, and disasters by the minute? Poodwaddle.com‘s Live World Clock does exactly that.

Raechel Running: Light in the Shadows

tdoor2

“In my art and activism I try to overcome despair and to make visual connections for people to foster kinship and hope in these times of change.” The photography of Raechel Running abounds with cultural symbolism and inter-cultural harmonies and dissonances. The results are eye-popping. She uses her talent, time and energy to help a number of organizations, including One Heart World-Wide, which is working to improve the dismal maternal health and mortality rates of indigenous populations in Mexico.
