Playing God is an audio-slide show where you'll listen to bee keeper and Queen Bee breeder Alejandro Patricio García explains the importance of insects due to their pollination powers.

He also touches on the catastrophic damage that agrochemical based monoculture has leashed on our world.

He sees big agro as putting us at huge risk by "playing God" with genetically modified organisms (GMO) and spraying herbicides and insecticides that destroy the soil. He warns this is what's triggering significant changes in our weather, especially flooding. This bee keeper advises us that the only solution is to return to nature. To respect life and our environment.

Fatima

Sharing "Fatima", a very short audio-slide show about a religious celebration in the tiny village of El Gastor in Spain´s Sierra de Cádiz, Andalusía.

Local women host the statue of Our Lady of Fatima in their homes every day of May, creating altars to place her on. Other villagers gather at the homes, sharing company and food.

Since today´s young aren´t interested in this tradition, this Our Lady of Fatima celebration from El Gastor, like many other traditional Catholic rituals, it´s likely to disappear with today´s senior generation.
