Martin Scorsese’s Grateful Dead Documentary To Preview At Film Fest

first_imgOne of the major stories to break in the 50th anniversary saga of the Grateful Dead last year was a major documentary project, produced by the famed Martin Scorsese. Scorsese’s long history in documenting legendary musicians made this particular film quite appealing, though little has been said about it since the initial buzz.That’s all changing, however, as the Asbury Park Music In Film Festival will host the first preview of the film, along with a panel discussion about its creation. Directed by Eric Eisner, the documentary is said to cover everything from the very beginnings all the way until last year’s “Fare Thee Well” celebration, but little else is known.The preview will screen at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, on April 9th at 2:30 PM. Further events include screenings of Grateful Dawg, chronicling Jerry Garcia and David Grisman’s relationship, American Epic, starring Jack White, T-Bone Burnett and more, and the new Miles Ahead biopic about Miles Davis.

Having children reduces a man’s risk of heart disease

first_imgDailyMail (UK) 27 Sep 2011A decade-long study of 135,000 men found that those who remained child-free had a higher risk of dying from heart disease than those who ‘sowed their oats.’ U.S researchers said it raised the possibility that infertility may be a potential early warning sign of future heart trouble. ‘There is emerging evidence to suggest that infertility may be a window into a man’s later health,’ said study leader Dr Michael Eisenberg of Stanford University in California. He said men who are infertile have a higher risk of certain cancers, and his team wanted to look for other signs that infertility might be playing a role later in a man’s life. The researchers, reporting in the journal Human Reproduction, followed more than 130,000 men who were retired and over 50 for a decade. read more
