Now is The Time to Protect The Yellowstone River

More than just flowing bodies of water, rivers have long served as sources of life and sustenance to the communities connected to them.

This would threaten more than just the ecosystem, but the rural and urban communities downstream that are tied to the river’s flow. The short film Last Call by Tributaries Digital Cinema, not only calls attention to this issue but demonstrates the people closely tied to the river—BBQ & bakery owners, lodge owners, naturalists, fly fishing guides, and even a sitting U.S. senator.

Video: Will Smith Hits the Indoor Slopes in Dubai

Will Smith has joined the long list of celebrities doing kooky stuff on skis. On a recent trip to the Middle East, Smith visited Ski Dubai, an indoor ski hill. His vlog documenting the experience makes it pretty clear that he’s no pro skier, though he can definitely link some parallel turns.
