If you'd like to see how John Landis' latest collaboration with Universal Creative ultimately turns out, then do make a point of checking out the An American Werewolf in London maze at Halloween Horror Nights 23.
I turn 69 years old today! Sixty-nine years of wildfire prevention messaging and awareness, waving at parades, standing guard at campsites, showing people how to douse a campfire and even giving out #SmokeyBearHugs.
A couple of weeks ago a fire tried to eat our town. You may have heard about it on TV. My mother called from 3,000 miles away to say Brian Williams had reported our evacuation on the NBC Nightly News, which I assume meant I wasn't imagining things.
Nineteen firefighters died in Arizona on Sunday. It is a stark reminder that firefighters put their lives on the line to protect other people's property and lives. Why do they choose to take such dangerous work?
With the record-breaking heat, drought, and fire storms of the summer of 2012, followed by a horrendous start to the 2013 fire season, most of us want to do what we can to improve the chances that our home will survive a local wildfire.
In summer months, you may have wondered if a backyard fire pit is legal, or if you can really build a bonfire on Ocean Beach. How about fireworks? In SF, getting the fire going is the easy part, but neighbors and fire regulations can be strict. So how exactly can you get away with burning stuff?
As more and more people are arrested over the horrible neglect that led to so many deaths in the Bangladesh factories, one can't help but think of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in New York City in 1911, and wonder how much has changed.
Would it surprise you to learn that the factory was used by companies who make federal uniforms? Labor rights organizations were able to photograph labels in the factory wreckage linking Tazreen to two US government contractors.
After 1988, as I anticipated, the news just kept getting worse. Although Hazelwood involved censorship of high school student journalists, the decision has been applied to a broad range of curricular contexts, to teachers as well as students, and to higher education.
Most don't know much about Tibet, a vast land of some of the highest peaks and widest deserts. The self-immolations are the hidden pain -- the ugly backstory -- that nobody wants to explicitly address.
