Opening Americans Eyes to Homelessness, Invisible People Documentary @home to Air on 70 PBS Stations Nationwide This Week

Syracuse, New York (PRWEB) March 23, 2015

To raise awareness of the omnipresent plight of millions of people in the US currently without homes, jobs or much reason for hope, American Public Television and WORLD Channel are airing social media activist and homelessness advocate Mark Horvaths poignant documentary @home on 70 PBS stations in more than 35 states this Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.

Directed by Susanne Suffredin and produced by Kindling Group, this feature-length documentary film tells the story of modern homelessness in the US, and one mans fierce commitment to end it, by following Horvath on an 11,000-mile cross-country road trip into tent cities and storm drains, under bridges and by-the-week motels. Armed with a hand-held video camera, laptop computer and smartphone, Horvath captured the personal, heartfelt struggles and raw emotions of adults, youths and families facing the daily challenges of being homeless an effort that translates seamlessly from camera lens to the big screen.

Our goal is to make the invisible people in society more visible, by bringing them out of the shadows where they are ignored, said Horvath. Everyone on the streets has their own story. Some made bad decisions, while others were victims, but none of them deserve to be where they are today. Its a sad reflection of our society that we just leave them there.

Horvath is no stranger to homelessness. After a successful career in the entertainment industry, his battle with drug addiction left him homeless. He rebuilt his life, only to experience job layoffs and a home foreclosure due to the economic recession that left him close to homelessness a second time. This misfortune inspired him to set out in 2008 to film the stories of Americas homeless and share them via his website, InvisiblePeople.tv, and YouTube channel – personal journeys and anecdotes that were the inspiration for, and foundation of, @home.

Now sober for 20 years, Horvaths first-hand experience at having been in their shoes has given him the compassion, concern and commitment to do what he can to raise awareness of, and ultimately eradicate, homelessness. Leveraging the power of video and the massive reach of social media, he shares the compelling, gritty and unfiltered stories of homeless people from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. on InvisiblePeople.tv and high-traffic sites such as YouTube, Twitter and Facebook proving to a global audience that while the homeless may often be ignored, they are far from invisible.

About Mark Horvath

In 2008, social media activist and homeless advocate Mark Horvath founded Invisible People, a grassroots 501(c)(3) nonprofit and revolutionary platform dedicated to increasing awareness of homelessness in the US. Horvath (@hardlynormal) is an internationally recognized ambassador for millions of invisible individuals and families across the country, giving them a face and a voice via his website as well as through Twitter, Facebook and other popular social media outlets.

A popular keynote speaker at global conferences, consultant to government agencies, and presenter at universities around the world, Horvath was commissioned by the Canadian government in 2011 to travel to 24 Canadian cities and help champion the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness. YouTube gave Invisible People unprecedented exposure allowing Horvath to curate YouTubes homepage for a day. He has been profiled in numerous top-tier media outlets including the LA Times, CNN, CBS, MSNBC, MTV, Forbes, Mashable.com, NPR, Fast Company and the Ricki Lake Show, and was recognized by the Huffington Post as one of the 11 Twitter Activists You Should be Following.

A New Perspective on World War II

ATLANTA (PRWEB) January 15, 2015

Mankind is capable of extreme cruelty, which we notice throughout the years of history classes and current news. But Holocaust survivor George Dynin still believes hope can give one the strength to overcome the worst of circumstances.

Dynin is now sharing his unique perspective of surviving the Holocaust in his new memoir, Aryan Papers. In his memoir he shares how his family escaped to Lithuania from Poland and how he and his mother joined the Polish Underground, where she became a spy, providing information on the Germans whereabouts, and thereby sabotaging the Nazis and saving lives. Encompassing his fathers capture by the Soviets and deportation to Siberia, Dynin explains his struggle of being responsible for his familys welfare at the age of 15.

Aryan Papers reads more like an action book by describing my inner thoughts, said Dynin. While there are some depictions of the extreme cruelty, they are only a fraction of what I actually witnessed.

Through the eyes of a teenage boy, Aryan Papers documents how his family endured the atrocities of World War II, even explaining how they survived by acquiring false documents and becoming Polish aristocrats by changing one letter in their surname.

With new identities, my mother, young sister and I traveled to Horodyszcze, Belarus, said Dynin. Through many powerful and thought-provoking episodes, Aryan Papers shares stories of those harrowing days, including how my mother became a secretary and translator to the mayor of the town, a Nazi collaborator.

Last Athens Farmers Market 2009

I am not a lover of lawns. Rather would I see daisies in their thousands, ground ivy, hawkweed, and even the hated plantain with tall stems, and dandelions with splendid flowers and fairy down, than the too-well-tended lawn.--William Henry Hudson


Thanks to all the members and patrons of the Athens Farmers Market in Athens, Georgia for a tremendous year. The 2010 season, no doubt, will be twice as good.

See you soon.

P.S. New content will be intermittent here, as Farmer South is now live.

Ode to Summer: We're Waiting

When I go into the garden with a spade, and dig a bed, I feel such an exhilaration and health that I discover that I have been defrauding myself all this time in letting others do for me what I should have done with my own hands. -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Please. I'm ready for this to be done.
Oh baby, it's been a long, long time since that evening sun's come round....

You know the one I'm talking about, that later-day summer sun in the South, when the cicadas are out, yet the temperature is almost perfect. You hop in the truck to go for a ride, waving your hand out the window, riding it on the waves of air. The world smells like a stream. The sun goes down, and you walk through its afterglow, the shimmery gloaming celebrated in lightning bugs.

Lord, the warm weather can't some soon enough. I can see the table set with my mother's Pfaltzgraff tableware--cool blue Yorktowne pattern to be specific. There it is, regimented in sparkling flatware, in angles of forks and knifes burning with potential energy (more about silverware at Silverware Wikipedia, in case anyone doubted its incendiary capability).

Now the dinner plates crisscross around its length: cornbread and biscuits. Thick gray gravy, milk and sausage grease. Lima beans soaking in butter. Stewed greens. Sliced pink pounds of ham. Corn on the cob. One piece of dinnerware, for one fat tomato, cut in chunks and salted. Another for rings of a sweet yellow onion.

In the fridge a key lime pie, waiting.

And the sunlight reaching through the window.

Who's Your Farmer?

Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?--Douglas Adams

One of the vital purposes of this blog (when I'm not neglecting it) is the sharing of information. If that hardly sounds like a revolutionary mission statement, it's not. In fact, there may be nothing more obvious or downright pedestrian. Every published word, no matter where it appears, is an atom of information. And most blogs, in their essence, seek nothing more than to make communal the salient elements of private experience.

On the other hand, when the subject is agriculture and making food fit to eat, the importance of shared information rises to a critical level. Simply, we are growing generations without any intimacy with the soil and  a cooking education that goes beyond frozen pizza in a conventional oven. As long as we continue to have, say, potatoes, I have faith we can overcome the latter: After all, even I know how to cook now, when only a few years ago I was sauteing canned salmon and mayonnaise in olive oil. But I wonder sometimes how long we'll have potatoes, especially ones not drenched in pesticides?

It's not an outrageous example. According to Progressive Farmer, from 2002 to 2007, the number of people "under twenty five years old who call farming their prime occupation fell by almost half," with fewer than 6,000 across the nation ("The Young Faces of Ag, October 2009). The average farmers in 2007 was over 57 years old. This upward trend in age certainly suggests that our agricultural knowledge is in peril. For a variety of reasons, we're missing the next farmers in line to learn when to plant the seed and how to use a tractor.

Perhaps the issue is even more urgent in organic production because its practice is more complicated and information-heavy than conventional agriculture. It's the difference between crop rotation and companion planting, or simply spraying a pesticide. In the past decade we have seen educational opportunities in the organic field spring up in academic certificate programs and mentoring support offered by non-profits. But the body of knowledge--and its institutionalization--is still being formed. As we grow the community, the best way to promulgate the why's and how-to's of organic farming is personal, firsthand experience and sharing it.

The enemy.

I will continue to share what I learned, e.g. don't ever, ever, ever let stink bugs in your tomato patch. I also encourage anyone really interested in farming organic to find immersion, to live and breathe the idea. The good news is there are an abundance of farm internships out there (and farmers in desperate need of labor). One way to get started might be to volunteer on organic farms by signing up with WWOOF, or World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms, which connects organic farms in different countries with temporary volunteer help and enables those volunteers to see the world (Flights to Tel Aviv, anyone?). In a sensible and earthy way, it brings closer to home a global environmental consciousness.

Actually, I knew a couple in Arkansas who had been Wwoofers in Ireland. While they like anyone else traveling abroad or to the U.S. were responsible for taking care of their visas, they were matched to their work opportunities and lodging through the Wwoof organization. Unmistakably, they had a blast.

Great Tomato Sauce Recipes

The man's desire is for the woman but the woman's desire is rarely other than for the desire of the man. -- Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Who's got recipes? With all these damn scrumptious tomatoes, I need 'em. Here's the very serviceable one I've been using from allrecipes.com:
* 10 ripe tomatoes
* 2 tablespoons olive oil
* 2 tablespoons butter
* 1 onion, chopped
* 1 green bell pepper, chopped
* 2 carrots, chopped
* 4 cloves garlic, minced
* 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
* 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
* 1/4 cup Burgundy wine
* 1 bay leaf
* 2 stalks celery
* 2 tablespoons tomato paste


1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Have ready a large bowl of iced water. Plunge whole tomatoes in boiling water until skin starts to peel, 1 minute. Remove with slotted spoon and place in ice bath. Let rest until cool enough to handle, then remove peel and squeeze out seeds. Chop 8 tomatoes and puree in blender or food processor. Chop remaining two tomatoes and set aside.
2. In a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat, cook onion, bell pepper, carrot and garlic in oil and butter until onion starts to soften, 5 minutes. Pour in pureed tomatoes. Stir in chopped tomato, basil, Italian seasoning and wine. Place bay leaf and whole celery stalks in pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 2 hours. Stir in tomato paste and simmer an additional 2 hours. Discard bay leaf and celery and serve.
I've yet to include either celery or tomato paste in my trials. You need salt, particularly if your butter is unsalted. I used a fruity South Georgia wine, nice to cook with and nice to sip (the Hahira Red from Horse Creek Winery)--although it's not absolutely essential. I've also doubled the carrot and increased the tomato requirements by half, based on the superabundance of tomatoes and carrots on hand. Mushrooms are a good throw-in as well.

I'm ready for variations and new culinary adventures. Any suggestions? Anything with zucchini (I've got some ugly ones probably unfit for market)? Bring it on.

There's This Dream I Keep Having...

Not that I want to be a god or a hero. Just to change into a tree, grow for ages, not hurt anyone -- Czeslaw Milosz

...I get up in the morning and head down to the field, and all the tomatoes are dead. Sometimes it's some lurid, overnight disease that's taken hold. Sometimes they've been decimated by deer or groundhogs or stupid, bastard kids who've tramped through the woods swinging baseball bats. When I stand there and see all the dead plants, I laugh. I can't do anything. Six months of hard thought and physical labor, every night of motherly worrying and hoping, are gone.

It's silly, but these tomatoes have consumed my life--and I have no idea exactly what I'm going to do with them. I'm sorry for being away, and I appreciate everyone who's stopped by, checking in during my absence. I'll do my best to honor your faith and repay your kindness.

Here's another picture for the ladies (thanks for the tip, Amber). I've got cuter ones coming.

Out with the Old

And he said, "Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked shall I return; the Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord" -- Job 1:21

In with the new. I want to put up some pictures of something cute to counteract the grim portrait of Juanita in a previous post. There's also a point to make here. Was I sad about Juanita's death? Sure. Maybe the better word is "disappointed"--frustrated that all my hard work had been so quickly and summarily snuffed out. But nothing more.

There's no time for sentimentality and weeping on the farm. Quite simply. there's too much to do. And I know well the bloody awfulness of Nature. I borrow from it what I can, and I'm not so vain as to presume to have any control.

Lastly, if daily existence on a farm can often seem like a gruesome circus, it also has a warm, exhilirating antipode.

Juanita's gone. But now this orphan calf needs some looking after. Maybe there are no fair trades in life and death, but this one is acceptable.
