Let’s talk sports! I bet you didn’t expect to read that from a media development company. But it is almost time for the Sochi 2014 Olympics. I love the Olympics and yes, I’ve been counting down the days to the Sochi Opening Ceremony. I can't help it. I've watched the Olympics as a kid, and I remember marveling at the Opening Ceremony, but the luge has always been my favorite -- it's like sledding on steroids!
Ready for a bad joke? With a visit from Canadian Astronaut Cmdr. Chris Hadfield, 2013 was out of this world! We warned you, it is a pretty bad joke (and at FableVision Studios we made it many, many times).
At this time of year, we think about one of the many spots we've done with Ernie Boch Jr. over the years. FableVision Studios and Ernie Boch Jr. have collaborated on numerous spots that promote various messages of art, music, travel, and friendship. What are you thankful for this year?
On Wednesday, Oct. 23, I had the opportunity to help WGBH in overseeing the Race to the Top – Early Learning Challenge (RTT-ELC) Leadership Summit in Boston. The conference was organized to create dialogue about the RTT-ELC federal program among educators and administrators from museums, schools, government agencies, media companies, and nonprofits. The program is designed to close the achievement gap for high-needs children, and to ensure that all children enter kindergarten ready to succeed. Massachusetts received $50M over four years (2012-2015) to strengthen the state’s comprehensive early childhood education system.
