ABC-7, DENVER: Hospitals Shun H1N1 FluMist Vaccine, Wait For Injections
http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/21212055/detail.html
Concern That Doctors, Nurses Could Spread 'Live' Virus
"But several metro area hospitals said they won’t be taking the
FluMist because they don’t want to endanger patients.
When asked if that meant that FluMist was dangerous, Lois
VanFleet, infection prevention specialist at Exempla Good Samaritan
Medical Center in Lafayette said, "No, it's a very safe vaccine in
healthy people."
But, she said it’s made with a live virus, and that doctors
and nurses who inhaled the live virus could shed some of it on
patients whose immune systems are compromised.
Here is an article that I came across on the internet.

VanFleet said the staffs at Lutheran, St. Joseph’s and Good
Samaritan Medical Centers will wait for the injected vaccine.
"The injected vaccine is made with antibodies, not live virus," she said.

Food for Thought, Food for Life (2015) | IMDb

We want our food fast, convenient and cheap, but at what cost? As farms become supersized our environment suffers and so does the quality of our food. FOOD FOR THOUGHT, FOOD FOR LIFE wants to start a revolution in the food system. This film will be a conversation starter inspiring us to think differently about what we eat, and to make changes that will positively impact our health, our earth and our communities. A driving and optimistic soundtrack by the indie band Cloud Cult punctuates interviews with such visionaries as poet Wendell Berry, chef Dan Barber, and guerilla urban gardener Ron Finley. Viewers will be inspired by the fast-paced infographics, stories of change, and left with a real-time 'what you can do right now' message.

The Starfish Throwers (2014) | IMDb

Powerful, direct and heartrending, The Starfish Throwers explores how three of the world's most fiercely compassionate individuals struggle to restore hope to the hopeless in unexpected and sometimes dangerous ways. Continents apart, a sixth grader, a top chef and retired school teacher fight what seems an unwinnable war until they discover their impact may reach further than their action.

This "Mad Genius" Organic Farmer's Ideas Are Working. He's Grossing $100K An Acre...

What kind of super-fertilizer allows Paul Kaiser to grow so much food on a mere 8 acres? Lot’s of rotten food scraps and rotten plants – otherwise known as compost. And he uses loads of it. He uses farming practices both old, and cutting-edge-new so well that agricultural specialists from University of California at Davis who have tested his top soil can drive a four-foot steel pole all the way through his fields. This, as opposed to most parts of California, where it would hit infertile hard-pan in less than 12 inches. Last year, Kaiser’s farm located in Sonoma Valley, CA grossed more than $100,000 an acre, too. This is ten times the average for most farmers of this area, even in lucrative wine-country.
