from Fallujah night scenes to the Brooklyn Philharmonic

Ever been to Kingsborough Community College? It’s where Brooklyn meets the Ocean at Brighton Beach, and on Monday the college hosted a small jobs fair in the breezeway that connects the cafeteria from a building of classrooms and library.  That’s where I met met Josephus Tudtud, a slender young man with fine features and the eagerness of a racehorse waiting for the gate to swing open.  Josephus is getting his Associate’s degree in media technology and management, twelve years after he first picked up a camera as he set out with his Marine unit to Iraq.  Originally it was to have images of his daughter and to leave her a record of times with her dad in case he didn’t make it back.  In Iraq, he shot more video, taught himself the basics of editing and compression to make the files small enough to mail back to his wife and little girl.  He has a segment in a polished and engaging NYC Media video about arts in Brooklyn.  Josephus’s 6-minute segment focuses on the Brooklyn Philharmonic and its dynamic, maverick conductor.  You can watch it online (if you want to fast forward to Josephus’s segment, it starts at 6:47).

  1. is there a link between tinnitus and hearing loss
    I really hope you already know I was in fact wondering about this just last evening as I was aiming to to bed (that’s basically when I get nearly all my wondering accomplished), so if we really decide to begin to promote our is there a link between tinnitus and hearing loss organization In my opinion we will end up being into something with it
