Unbound presents HEMISPHERES: Sound Photographs from Madagascar Oct 31, 2014 09:00PM

Kansas City, KS (PRWEB) October 31, 2014

Our assignment was simple: find the best music from the Unbound community in Madagascar and record it.

Along the way, we encountered inspiring people who enriched our journey. We took what we found and created a First Friday exhibit and a music CD.

HEMISPHERES: Sound Photographs from Madagascar brings viewers into the lives of those who made the music in a series of what we call "sound photographs," which have been put together for this unique exhibition.

When: Nov. 7 and 8, 2014 (First Friday in November)
Where: The Living Room, 1818 McGee St., Kansas City, MO 64108
Times: Friday – 6 to 10 p.m. (music concert at 8 p.m.)
Saturday – noon to 10 p.m. (music concert at 8 p.m.)

A photo wall at the event will feature photos, like this one, from Madagascar.

Blending photography, music, interactive media and immersive imagery, HEMISPHERES surrounds the senses, traveling to the corners of a remote island nation. What is revealed is the heart of a resilient people, the prevailing joy over sorrow, with songs presented in a swirl of vivid imagery and sound.

   •  Each photograph will have corresponding multimedia components: music, words or video elements that bring viewers into the story of that photograph.
   •  A 25- to 30-minute live music concert will feature interpretations of songs on the "Voices of Unbound: Madagascar" CD.
   •  A photo wall will display a collage of 4x6 photos from Madagascar that will be available for a suggested donation.

"This project is about bringing worlds together," said Barclay Martin, a Kansas City musician and new channels coordinator at Unbound. "What makes this record unique is that we aren't recording in a sterile studio, but where our families live and work, with life swirling around them. This event is an invitation into that space."

Unbound is the largest nonprofit in Kansas with more than $120 million in annual revenue. The organization works directly with children, families and the elderly in 21 developing countries as they confront the challenges of poverty and work toward a better life.

Unbound distributes direct aid as quickly and efficiently as possible to people who need it. More than 93 percent of all the money Unbound spends goes to program support.

The Best Double Strollers of 2014 Awards Have Been Announced by BabyGearLab Oct 31, 2014 09:00PM

(PRWEB) October 31, 2014

Pediatrician led has released the results of their 3 month long testing of the Top Double Strollers for 2014 designed to determine which of the 14 products offered the very best in performance and features. BabyGearLab is one of the leading baby product review sites, providing comprehensive reviews of the most popular baby gear on the market. All of the strollers were put through extensive testing for metrics like maneuverability, ease of use, quality, weight and folded size, and safety. The competitors were reviewed stroll for stroll and side-by-side to earn points in each individual test, which drove the results for their overall score. The complete review, with all the details, is now available on the website.

The 2014 award winning Double Stroller products are:

One of the Editors' Choice awards was given to the BOB Revolution SE Duallie. The BOB earned the highest score overall out of all the competition, with the closest competitors coming in 7 points lower than the BOB. "We really loved everything about the BOB," gushed Juliet Spurrier MD, founder. "This stroller earned the highest scores for maneuverability and quality; it's just a pleasure to use, no matter where the road takes you." The BOB out maneuvered the competition with a 3 wheel design, adjustable suspension, and rubber air filled tires that helped it navigate life and improved the comfort of the ride for passengers.

The Britax B-Agile Double strolled away with another of the Editors' Choice awards. Offering many of the features and attributes parents look for, with an attention to detail and quality, the B-Agile has something for everyone. Dr. Juliet Spurrier of says, "The Britax B-Agile is a top performing stroller that really wowed users in our review. We were impressed by the variety of storage options and the passenger comfort features." Dr. Spurrier went on to say that, "Little ones can get cozy for naps in seats that lay almost flat, and be protected from the sun with individually operating shades." The B-Agile earned top marks for weight and folded size, offering one of the easiest folds in the competition.

The Best Value award was given to the high ranking Joovy Scooter X2, which tied for second place with the Britax B-Agile Double. "The Joovy Scooter X2 has all the features parents or passengers could possibly be looking for," remarked BabyGearLab leader Dr. Spurrier, "It's amazing that they managed to include every possible feature for comfort and convenience, with such high quality, for such a low price. We particularly liked the giant canopy and large under seat storage features." The Joovy Scooter X2 had the highest score for ease of use.

The Chariot Cougar 2 earned the Top Pick for Outdoor Adventure. With accessories that make the Chariot suitable for skiing, jogging, hiking, and biking, it is hard to find a product with more versatility. "If you live to play in the outdoors, there really is no other stroller for you," says Dr. Spurrier, "The Chariot has nice adjustable suspension, interchangeable accessories for different activities, and easy to use features for comfort and safety for both parent and little ones. It's hard to find a stroller that lets parents continue to enjoy their normal outdoor activities, finding one that does all this and scored well in our tests is great." The Chariot Cougar 2 has rubber air filled tires, and a full protective barrier to keep little ones dry and clean no matter what adventure awaits them.

In addition to a complete review of all the individual products and how they stacked up to the competition, BabyGearLab also published a Buying Advice for Choosing a Double Stroller article that can help parents whittle down the features and performance factors of the products to find the right one for their family.
