Age no problem by Wim Schepens( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vita Needle, a company based in Needham, Massachusetts, has a remarkable and very successful employment policy: it only hires elderly staff members. The average age of its staff of thirty-five is 73 and the company has no fixed retirement age. The unique people in the film talk about the joy of learning new things, about solidarity, and their ability to give meaning to the last phase of life. President Fred Hartman says "they can continue to work here as long as they can walk the stairs. Older people are flexible, they like to work part-time and are very motivated." Most work twenty to twenty-five hours per week and schedule their work week themselves. No one has ever been fired and all employees share in the profits. Rosa, 89 years old, wets needles, places them on holders and packages them. She does not work for the money but to keep herself occupied. Joe, in his seventies, started a consultancy firm after his retirement, but ran into such fierce competition that he prefers to be an employee. Executive secretary Mary, 79 years old, arrives at 4:30 am every day to open the office. This heart-warming film affirms the potential of older adults to continue to be productive

Set within the world of pigeon racing, Patrick Bisschops' insightful documentary presents a microcosm of the racial tensions currently plaguing The Netherlands. Turkish immigrants have been flocking to the working-class Transvaal neighborhood of The Hague in recent years, breeding resentment amongst the area's Dutch residents, especially the native pigeon enthusiasts. Not only have the immigrants appropriated their hobby and encroached upon the local bird store, but they've also brought their own variety of pigeons, called "tumblers" because they turn in the air

Dabba Wallahs( Visual )

1 edition published in 1998 in Hindi and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Every day, some 5,000 dabba wallahs deliver home cooked dishes, picked up every morning from a suburban household to well over 170,000 office workers across Mumbai. The dabba wallahs rely on an ingenious network involving multiple relays so that a single tiffin box can change hands up to three to four times a day, before being returned back home through the same channels. Very few dabba-wallahs can read or write, so they have created a code consisting of a series of color-coded dots, dashes and crosses on the lids of the tiffin box with which pinpoints the area, building, street and floor number. The centry-old system had been devised in order to ensure that the food has not been prepared by members of lower castes, and this phenomenon is slowly dying due to availability of fast-food franchises and office cafeterias

1 edition published in 2010 in Dutch and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bijna 10 jaar geleden werd de eerste iPod op de markt gebracht. Sindsdien is er veel veranderd in de manier waarop wij met media omgaan. Daarnaast dragen we de media altijd bij ons door het gebruik van smartphones zoals de iPhone. Doordat we zo in de media leven, hebben we allemaal een beetje last van de Truman-neurose, het Truman-syndroom, je bent je bijvoorbeeld altijd bewust van camera's. Met Augmented Reality (AR) wordt op de beelden die je door de camera van je telefoon ziet, een digitaal laagje gelegd, waarin informatie zit over het object dat je bekijkt
