Steve Jaros takes a few moments to drop some metaphorical truth bombs, and address some issues surrounding the books, movies, games, and tv shows we consume. In so few words, he makes the argument that we ought not feel guilty about things that entertain us, with the stipulation that we don't hurt someone else in the process.

The Goal of the Reconstruction Efforts
As we've already mentioned a few times -- and you'll find more details on the "PechaKucha for Haiti" page -- all of these events are to raise money to help with reconstruction in Haiti, with the focus being on education projects, schools, and the like. Just to give you an idea of what has happened, here are a few new statistics from Concern Worldwide US Operations Director Dominic Macsorley, delivered through Twitter: 4,616 schools surveyed, 80% damaged 431 teachers killed 4,000 students killed 250,000 school children displaced As you'll probably agree, these numbers are overwhelming, and UN numbers have over 8,000 schools destroyed. You'll find more data at the Haiti Education Cluster page.

It was completely full, about 700 people of all ages and backgrounds! The event was at club Fabric, usually a dance club, very famous, and rebuilt from the old tram depot! 12 guests presented their passion, including Adam Gebrian, architecture guru and co-organizer of PKN Prague, design studio OFICINA -- creators of the visual concept of the Prima COOL TV Channel -- and guys from the design studio Najbrt -- creators of both Ostrava's and Prague's city logo design. It was huge succes, documented by various national and local media.
PKN Bahrain on TV
httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLnZW0aBuI8 Sure, it may be in Arabic, but it's great to see the organizers of PechaKucha Night in Bahrain be interviewed on Bahrain TV's Hala Bahrain morning show. As organizer Mohammed Janahi tells us, the reason for the scarves was in celebration of the country's National Day. The interview is a follow-up to the city's Vol. 3, held earlier this month -- you can still find the list of presenters on the official event page.

Animated Graphics for Australian TV, an Intro the Color Wheel, and a Doom Clock from Vladimir
Presentations Tim Costello has worked in Australia's television industry for the past 10 years, creating animated graphics for a variety of TV shows, which he shares in this presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 93). He also worked on the feature film Where the Wild Things Are. In her presentation (in German, from PKN Aalen Vol. 6), Annegret Barth wants to introduce us to the interplay of colors. Using photos from nature, Annegret walks us through the development of the color wheel and its possible applications. (in German) We don't have a full presentation to share, but PKN Vladimir organizer Boris Matin has sent us the following photos (above) and description of this rather interesting participant at the city's recent Vol. 6.Sergei Karelin is a silversmith and goldsmith, a member of the Union of Artists of Russia, and an academic at the Petrovskaya Academy of Science and Art in St. Petersburg. The clock (in the photos) shows the countdown of the time from the moment of the Birth of the Earth to the moment of its collapse, owing to its inevitable approach to the Sun. The work calls for the drawing together of world religions, the union of all nations, and the immediate stop of all war conflicts in the face of the fatal disaster. Posters We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today, one for this month's PKN Waterville Vol. 8 (pictured above), and one for PKN Chattanooga Vol. 11, also happening later this month.
