If you are not familiar with the annual “Burning Man” event, thinkWoodstock meets Mad Max, although its organizers and proponents frown on painting the event into any kind of corner. The “about” section of the event’s website says that “trying to explain what Burning Man is to someone who has never been to the event is a bit like trying to explain what a particular color looks like to someone who is blind.” Nevertheless, the new documentary film, Spark: A Burning Man Story, attempts to explain the alleged unexplainable.
Residents of four homeowner’s associations are butting heads with Davis Development and Propertiess, LLC over a proposed neighborhood development in proximity to Canada Del Oro’s Highlands Wash.
Ten years would have been too long to wait for a replacement to the Tomahawk cruise missile if the Department of Defense’s proposed $82 million cut to the missile system hadn't been reversed by Congress, said Sen. John McCain.
The cinematic climate is changing in countless ways, but one in particular is affecting the world on a much broader scale. Viral marketing and distribution through avenues such as Netflix has fused with a public hunger for knowledge that is satiated through a surge in documentary filmmaking. The impact of this readily distributed knowledge and information is perhaps more powerful than ever. One company in particular has learned this lesson the hard way. After the release of the popular 2013 documentary “Blackfish”, SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. has begun to feel the sting of public opinion.

The true diehard fans of the hit series “Breaking Bad” may recognize a familiar face when tuning in to reruns of America’s favorite epic.

According to Town of Oro Valley clerk Julie Bower, the four incumbents - Mayor Satish Hiremath and councilmembers Joe Hornat, Lou Waters, and Mary Snider - have won the election outright with all precincts reporting.
Ballots are still being counted in the Oro Valley Town Council Primary Election.
Inspired by true events, “When The Game Stands Tall” is the story of the De La Salle High School (Concord, Calif.) football team posting the longest winning streak in football history. The film neatly illustrates the De La Salle Spartans 12-year rule on the gridiron and how “the streak” ending comes almost as shocking to the world as a Harlem Globetrotter loss in basketball. The problems the coaches, players and community have in confronting their rare defeat and moving on in life gave the film so much potential. Unfortunately, the remarkable real-life story that helped propel De La Salle to triumph once again on and off of the football field fails to inspire film-goers the same way on the big-screen.
