The Last Duel

Movie Review written by Jon Patch with 3 out of 4 paws

The Last Duel

20th Century Studios, Pearl Street Films, Scott Free Productions, TSG Entertainment and Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures present an R rated, 152-minute, Action, Drama, History film based on a true story, directed by Ridley Scott, screenplay by Nicole Holofcener, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon with a theater release of October 15, 2021.

Miami-Dade County Animal Services Department (Animal Services) and Friends of Miami
Animals Foundation Inc. (FoMA) are partnering to launch Wellness of Wheels (WOW), a mobile
pet veterinary service, through FoMA's donation of a Mobile Wellness Unit and generous
$500,000 contribution.
With the new Mobile Wellness Unit, Animal Services and FoMA aim to improve the wellbeing of
Miami-Dade County pets in need of wellness services at a time when many pet parents are
juggling finances to meet their basic necessities. Pets will receive free medical care through the
WOW unit including physical exams, wellness vaccines and boosters, heartworm and fecal
parasite screening, deworming, heartworm and flea/tick prevention, ear cleaning, nail trimming
and referrals for spay/neuter surgery or other needed medical services. FoMA will pay for one
year of staffing, equipment and supplies, and Animal Services will operate the WOW unit for two
additional years.
The WOW unit will be rolling into selected communities, including Miami Gardens, Little Havana,
Liberty City, Homestead, and the Redlands. Miami-Dade County pet owners will be able either
walk-in or schedule appointments for their pets by contacting 311.
"FoMA exists to save and improve the lives of homeless pets in Miami-Dade County. The best
way we can do that is to prevent pets from becoming homeless in the first place. Medical
concerns are among the leading reasons that owners surrender or abandon their pets, and if we
can instead help keep those animals in forever families that love them by supporting Animal
Services in this endeavor--that is absolutely achieving our mission,” said Yolanda Berkowitz,
FoMA Founder and President. “By providing free services for families who are struggling to
afford veterinary care through the mobile wellness unit, we are closing the gap for at-risk pets."
The WOW is one of several initiatives Animal Services and FoMA have partnered on to improve
the welfare of pets in Miami-Dade County.

Work together or die alone.

The 355 – In Theaters January 7

Official Website | Twitter | Facebook | Instagram | YouTube | #The355

A dream team of formidable female stars come together in a hard-driving original approach to the globe-trotting espionage genre in The 355. 

When a top-secret weapon falls into mercenary hands, wild card CIA agent Mason “Mace” Brown (Oscar®-nominated actress Jessica Chastain) will need to join forces with rival badass German agent Marie (Diane Kruger, In the Fade), former MI6 ally and cutting-edge computer specialist Khadijah (Oscar® winner Lupita Nyong’o), and skilled Colombian psychologist Graciela (Oscar® winner Penélope Cruz) on a lethal, breakneck mission to retrieve it, while also staying one-step ahead of a mysterious woman, Lin Mi Sheng (Bingbing Fan, X-Men: Days of Future Past), who is tracking their every move.

As the action rockets around the globe from the cafes of Paris to the markets of Morocco to the opulent auction houses of Shanghai, the quartet of women will forge a tenuous loyalty that could protect the world—or get them killed.

The film also stars Édgar Ramirez (The Girl on the Train) and Sebastian Stan (Avengers: Endgame).

The 355 is directed by genre-defying filmmaker Simon Kinberg (writer-director-producer of Dark Phoenix, producer of Deadpool and The Martian and writer-producer of the X-Men films). The screenplay is by Theresa Rebeck (NBC’s Smash, Trouble) and Kinberg, from a story by Rebeck. The 355, presented by Universal Pictures in association with FilmNation Entertainment, is produced by Chastain and Kelly Carmichael for Chastain’s Freckle Films and by Kinberg for his Kinberg Genre Films. The film is executive produced by Richard Hewitt (Bohemian Rhapsody), Esmond Ren (Chinese Zodiac) and Wang Rui Huan.

Bee Scared Plants the Seed of Environmentalism in Young Minds
 
OSWEGO, NY, September 21, 2021“Your Majesty,” said the Scout Bee to the Queen of the Bees, “The Honeybees are in trouble. They are disappearing in great numbers!”
 
What will the queen do? Who will she turn to? How will she keep her hive safe from harm? Without bees there will be no fruit, no vegetables and no flowers.
 
Bee Scared, an Old Doc Turtle adventure from author Richard Faith, follows the Queen and her community of family and friends as they try to find a solution to this scary problem. They use music. They call on Auntie Bee. Even Old Doc Turtle becomes concerned! Can your young reader think of any ways to help Auntie Bee save the honeybees?
 
This delightful children’s tale delivers a simple lesson about the challenges of climate change and global warming — and the impact on nature’s tiniest but mightiest of creatures — in a way that young audiences can understand. Bee Scared can help you open a dialogue with the curious young people in your life about the importance of conservationism and protecting the future of our planet.
 
Author Richard Faith is passionate about raising awareness regarding the impacts of global warming and climate change. He is also the author of the science fiction series, Megamerse, which features a superhero who fights for Mother Earth. Megamerse has been turned into a screenplay and talks are ongoing with a movie studio. Faith’s other book titles include "I Can Barely See" Said Mandy Manatee, Barkley & Silvia, Crocodilly Lilly: Not so Toothy A Grin and The Owl that Said What.
 
Faith is also the executive director of Mother Nature Festival Live Incorporated (http://mothernaturefestival.live), a 501(c)3 nonprofit that works to educate, inform and inspire everyone to get involved in helping Mother Nature.
