President Obama Introduces Initiative Between Businesses & Community Colleges for 2013 Budget
President Obama introduces an initiative of a partnership between businesses & community colleges for his 2013 budget.
On, February 13, 2012, "[W]hat I want to focus on today -- what we need to do in terms of higher education, and community colleges in particular. Employers today are looking for the most skilled, educated workers. I don’t want them to find them in India or China. I want businesses to find those workers right here, in the United States. The skills and training that employers are looking for begins with the men and women who educate our children. ..."
"Moving Image" Defined
What is a "Moving Image"?
A combined definition of "moving image" from the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens (NYC) and The Association of Moving Image Archivists is any "stage of producing, promoting, and exhibiting motion pictures, television, and digital media" (including video and computer games) and recognizes them "as important educational, historical, and cultural resources."
Moving images have been used as a tool for teaching and learning ever since these media were created. Presented here is a centralized hub of Web 2.0 open access digital moving image websites to aid in your teaching and learning endevours.

BMCC's Spring Theater
Life's a Dream [Play by Pedro Calderon de la Barca,1600- ~1681]
In April 2012, talented BMCC students gave a performance of Life's a Dream.
"Life's A Dream is a poignant tale of a prince imprisoned at birth by his astrologer-king father and liberated on the same day a beautiful woman stumbles into his life. "Vida es Sueno" was published in 1636/1637 before Calderon was 40. Plays in 17th century Spain were written primarily for immediate production, this play was probably presented on the Madrid stage before it was published. (This is also true of Shakespeare's plays.)
