Welcome to Alysha's "tiny house" in Red Bluff, CA. When her husband died tragically, struck down by cancer in his early 30's after working on U.S. Air Force weaponry, young mother Alysha St. Germain decided to adopt a lifestyle that she only had contemplated in theory up until that point. She was already concerned by how cumbersome owning too much stuff and owing too much money could be, but faced suddenly with the obligation to raise her two young children alone, she decided to adopt a lifestyle of reduced spending, reduced waste and conscious living. She bought a tiny house -- built by architect Todd Miller from Eugene, Oregon (who will also be featured in this series) -- and committed to shedding all the possessions she felt she didn't really need. Alysha is now renting her family's former residence for income and along with the tiny house her two children adore, what she also bought is time and freedom to pursue the things in life that truly matter to her, while giving the planet a break at the same time.

Charles Shaw is a visionary and crafty entrepreneur who has seized an opportunity to turn lead into gold. Sixteen years ago, along with his wife Lisa, he bought an abandoned junior high school in old town Durango, Colorado. The building was in poor shape, but its walls were solid brick. Charles immediately saw the potential of making a long-time dream come true: turning a large building into a super-efficient, mixed-use community space that could become a vibrant center of living,learning and creativity. Today the "Smiley Building" has become a landmark in Durango, and it might well be the most efficient, energy independent building of its kind in the entire country. You're going to want to live here! Credit: Respectful Revolution Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/respectfulrevolution/

We all know that pets can sometimes be just what the doctor ordered. So when we heard from GC Hospice that they had a resident whose only wish was to snuggle some kittens, we couldn't say no. We brought not just one, but a whole basket of kittens to snuggle up to! Credit to 'Great Plains SPCA'.

peed projector "DynaFlash" that can project 8-bit images up to 1,000 fps with 3 ms delay. The second technology is a high-speed non-rigid surface tracking at 1,000 fps. Since the projection and sensing are operated at a speed of 1,000 fps, a human cannot perceive any misalignment between the dynamically-deforming target and the projected images. Especially, focusing on new paradigms in the field of user interface and fashion, we have demonstrated dynamic projection mapping onto a deformed sheet of paper and T-shirt. Also we show that projection to multiple targets can be controlled flexibly by using our recognition technique. http://www.k2.t.u-tokyo.ac.jp/vision/DPM/ Credit: Ishikawa Watanabe Laboratory

A mother gray whale lifted up her calf, seemingly to help it get a better view of the excited onlookers, and we caught it all on camera. The gray whales in San Ignacio Lagoon frequently approach small tourist boats, seeking the human interaction. While they could easily avoid the people, whose small boats are not allowed to closely approach whales, they actually seem to enjoy making contact. Laguna San Ignacio is on the Pacific coast of Mexico's Baja peninsula and is the destination for hundreds of gray whales, who migrate annually to the region from their feeding grounds in the Arctic. Here, where the water is shallow and warm, they give birth to their young. It lies within El Vizcaino Biosphere Reserve and is the gray whale's last undisturbed nursing and breeding ground, largely thanks to an environmental victory in 2000 that stopped the development of an industrial salt plant. Whale watching here is highly regulated, with limits on how many boats can be on the water, how long they can stay, and how close they can get; rather than closely approaching the whales, they must idle their engine and wait for the whales to approach the vessel, which is a common occurrence.
