This edition: Season 12, #7: TransitionsTweet
Original tape date: March 6, 2013.
First aired: March 31, 2013.
This month, the news magazine show about CUNY looks at transitions. For example, what's it like to transition into fatherhood? We watch this through the lens of La Guardia Community College's Fatherhood Academy. What's it like to transition from a career in Hollywood TV shows back to New York City? Hiram Kasten, comedian and TV actor, walks us through this. We will also take a look at a meditation program in upstate New York - meditation itself being a kind of transition - with Rikki Asher, who runs the Art Education program at Queens College. We profile John Jay College's Jonathan Gray, an expert on graphic novels and comic books who talks about how the comics industry has transformed into a billion-dollar industry. And we'll talk to Juan Pablo Alonso, a recent winner at the 2012 Automated Trading Championships.
