2:10 One Day on Earth - Kyle Ruddick
Numbers can be powerful .. especially numbers like 12-12-12-, 11-11-11 and 10-10-10. Kyle Ruddick recognized the power of those magical numbers on the calendar and started a collaborative film making event called One Day on Earth.
It's a snapshot of the joys, triumphs and tragedies of every day life all over the planet.
2:20 12-12-12 .. Greg Shultz
Filmmakers aren't the only ones embracing the 12th-e-ness of today. The Astronomical Society of the Pacific has declared 12-12-12 anti doomsday day in celebration of rational thinking and reasoned discourse. Today is the last date for the next 88 years when every number will be the same. Jim Mora talks with Greg Shultz, the Society's Director of education.
2:30 Reading - Graeme Lay with another story from his book 'The Miss Tutti Frutti Contest: Travel Tales of the South Pacific'.
Today, Graeme strips away the Gauguin myth and uncovers the tragedy of what the French artist's life in Tahiti was really like.
