renee it would be great if stream/post production teamed up to cover these events because livestream can always upload content and put it on the stream. we deployed a number of folks to baltimore to cover an anticipated incident last night and are consequently short staffed right now- it seems like kitchen ( and potentially comfort, and sanitation) are going to go on strike so we've got our hands full trying to cover this as well.

Do we/they only want live stream to cover it?

Shouldn't we also have media (non live stream) cover it?  If so, who's down to shoot and edit a small piece about it?  I can do some, but not both...would love some assistance on this.

Sign up on the shoot list if you can help.
And yet again, i'm noticing folks are not using the list for shoots...

March Details:

CEO Angela Braley's overall compensation is $13.1 million dollars, enough to cover 1455 New Yorkers.
·       5:30pm - WellCare / 110 5th Ave: the for-profit company that administers Medicaid and Medicare Advantage programs in New York and other states. Currently being investigated for fraud with estimates that WellCare illegally siphoned $400 million to $600 million from state health insurance programs for the poor. (1)
·       6pm - St Vincent's Community Hospital / 12th St & 7th Ave: closed earlier this year due to bankruptcy, St Vincent’s is a casualty of profit-driven insurers and a healthcare system that leaves 50 million Americans uninsured. There are now no hospitals on the westside below 57th st.
