  If you're like most air travelers you probably don't pay much attention to the pre-flight safety announcement before take off. I know I don't. But even the most jaded frequent flier should take notice of this new video posted to YouTube by Air New Zealand. Adventure enthusiasts will recognize none other than Man V.S. Wild's own Bear Grylls providing the demonstrations for what to do in an emergency. And though the details vary little from the usual instructions Grylls' comic stylings put a nice spin on the critical...

For most of his life wildlife photographer Florian Schulz has fought to protect the diversity of animals species around the world.

Florian: It’s really a land of...

A new yoga video posted on YouTube inspires tens of thousands to pursue the practice. But it seems that many others find it sexually provocative, disrespectful of the female form and an affront to the principles of mindful movement. Personally I was more than a little shocked to discover that the 3 minute 29 second film produced by Equinox health clubs featuring Briohny Smyth could be construed as anything short of amazing.

Lying there in the grey morning light of our bedroom my wife pressed her chin into the crook of my neck and shoulder and simply whispered. “I believe in you.” I still get really nervous.  Even after 20 years of long road trips there’s that nagging fear you feel when you throw back the covers and rise from sleep on the day of departure. Back when I was a salesman, heading out to call on customers, I was afraid of falling short of my quota for the month. Now as a journalist on my way to cover the 5Point Film Festival in Carbondale Colorado I’m afraid of dashing someone’s dreams.
