Where are you Hillary?

Imagine Donald Trump sitting in the Situation Room making life or death decisions on behalf of the United States.

Our veterans and their families deserve a president who doesn't disrespect and disparage their sacrifices.

Not one living president has said they believe Donald Trump has what it takes to be Commander-in-Chief.

What are the hipsters going to do?

The hipsters of Brooklyn are about to make big decisions - maybe not for just for themselves but for others too. History is very much about momentum. After visiting a middle school in Brooklyn I felt there might be one coming very soon.

Keeping written journalism alive

Keeping written journalism alive

Declining newspaper sales. Millennials inability to read more than 140 characters. The overload of information available online. Migration of ads and classified ads money to social media.

Pink paper on the wall

 

It was September 2015. After two weeks of holiday I started working on my new documentary. It took me back to the times of the Second World War. My film told a story of a girl - today, an elderly woman - who survived the Auschwitz concentration camp. It was a story of courage, loss and survival in times of war. My protagonist had the rare fortune of being among the very few children to survive the ordeal. One million children died.

Friends, Fun, Food (For Thought)

Friends, Fun, Food (For Thought)

I have taken more than 2,800 pictures to record the first five weeks of our program. My cellphone seems to be on the verge of a strike.

Right now at the Miami beachside hotel, while pictures are being uploaded to my laptop, I am looking back at all captured moments of our "almost-too-good-to-true" U.S. adventure.

Beautiful days are just fleeting. Each day that has passed is becoming our common good old memory.

Finally, Minnesota Knows: The Case of Jacob Wetterling

ABOVE: Jacob Wetterling when he disappeared, and a computer-generated image of how he may have looked as an 18-year-old.

My phone buzzed as I left Mickey’s Diner. I was swelled by half a chicken, coleslaw, baked beans and toast, and the soles of my shoes were caked in grease.

I reached for my phone and noticed I’d received an AMBER alert - a pop-up warning sent by police appealing for information about a missing child.
