Franklin TV: Xmas is Coming! Srsly?

I know. I know. Way to soon. I haven’t voted yet. 

Pete Fasciano, Executive Director 11/06/2022

If you work in the media ‘biz’ – especially in advertising and/or TV, then you know that Christmas media projects begin much earlier than the actual holiday season. The first wave often arrives right after the ‘back-to-school’ ads stop running. Christmas trees pop up in film studios around the country – anywhere from September onward. Years ago I produced and filmed a ‘Christmas Special’ program in July. It makes for an odd reality – a blustery snowing street scene in the studio. Outside? 85 degrees & Sunny.

We start this week at Franklin.TV producing and shooting a fun program about traditional ‘Italian Christmas Cookies’. We’re baking ‘em up in our TeeVee kitchen (Yum!) Food is involved, soooo – Happy Holidays to all! (I have no shame.)

And – it’s not even Thanksgiving yet.

= = = = = = = = = =

On Tuesday – a big Vote Day. Although it’s a mid-term election, there are four big questions on the ballot. If you didn’t receive a red ‘Voter info’ booklet –

You can search – ‘MA ballot questions’. The top result link is below.

The MA Secretary of State’s Office has all you need to know*. Big recommend.
You can review the legislative language, as well as 150-word arguments pro & con.

These are issues that affect us at home. Browse & Learn. It’s worth your time.

And – as always –

Boston Globe: "Plastic recycling is a ‘myth,’ study says"

"Of the 51 million tons of plastic waste US households generated in 2021, just 2.4 million tons — or 5 percent — was recycled, new research shows.

The findings provide yet more proof that plastic recycling is a “myth,” says the new analysis, published by the environmental nonprofit Greenpeace USA this week.

Plastic, which is made from fossil fuels, is notoriously difficult to recycle. A major reason: Though they can be broken down into broad categories, there are thousands of varieties of the material, each with its own chemical makeup. Most cannot be recycled together, so to be processed, they must be meticulously sorted. Still, hundreds of millions of tons of plastic are produced each year, which is a major problem for the climate: Plastic production and disposal account for 3.4 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions."

While recycling maybe a "myth" that they are created from fossil fuels is the major issue for our overall climate challenge. How do we find reasonable alternatives?
