Through the experience of several families consisting of both children and adults with food allergies, this program clarifies the misinformation people commonly have about food allergies.

Other topics include the daily routine of an allergic individual; the time and energy that goes into preparing to eat out, going to the park, visiting family and friends, and addressing the lack of understanding and education of people who are unaware of the danger of this condition. Supports groups include founder Melissa Dalton, of COFAF (Circle of Food Allergic Families) and Terry Furlong, co-founder of FAAN (Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network), the largest advocacy organization for food allergies in the world.

Jake Mason, an enigmatic Air Force officer assigned to transport him to a mysterious, anonymous military test facility in a remote section of Area 51. Mason, however, offers no clarity as to the situation, and Carter's ride begins. Once ensconced in the security of the test facility, Captain Carter learns that he is part of a nightmarish experiment - he is pregnant with an alien baby!

The Decoy (2006)
The Decoy (2006) is a western film that was shot in 2005 and finished in 2007 by Higgins/Kreinbrink Productions, an Arizona motion picture company.
The film project started as a short film to showcase the talents of Justin Kreinbrink. The original script was only 35 pages long (one page on a script equals one minute of screen time). However the story features a main character who is mute, which makes each page last much longer. At the end of principal photography, they ended up with a 70-minute movie, mostly due to the amount of time needed to show the mute's reactions.
Taking their film to the 2005 American Film Market, the producers were told by distributors to make the film at least 90 minutes. So in December 2005, several new scenes were shot for the film, bringing the total running time to just over 100 minutes.
In the summer of 2006, The Decoy was previewed to a sell-out crowd of over 1,100 people at The Fox Theatre in Tucson, AZ. The Fox Theatre, which had recently reopened from a 30-year hiatus, had also not had a new western shown there in nearly as much time.
At the 2006 American Film Market in November, the film was again shown to distributors. This time, four distributors expressed interest in the project. The company ended up signing with Echo Bridge Home Entertainment in April 2007 for Domestic (US) and Canadian DVD distribution.

Don Pasquale (2006)
A night at the opera, with a comic jewel in the great tradition of the Neapolitan opera buffa: Donizetti's elegant take on the genre, with the verve of baritone Simone Alaimo and the virtuosity of soprano Patrizia Ciofi. Close to sixty, wealthy fuddy-duddy Don Pasquale is maddened by the idea that when he dies, all his worldly goods will go to his nephew Ernesto, whom he regards as a simpleton: hasn't the young man fallen for Norina, charming but without a penny to her name? So Don Pasquale decides to get married himself, and produce deserving heirs. Doctor Malatesta, a family friend, introduces him to his sister, Sofronia: submissive, virtuous and hardworking, she seems to be just what Don Pasquale wants. Alas, after the wedding, the new wife turns into an insufferable shrew and a flighty spendthrift. A comic masterpiece, Don Pasquale stands out as the final flowering of the Neapolitan opera buffa from which Donizetti borrowed his characters: the old fool, the saucy soubrette, the Dr Headache who always chips in at the wrong moment, and the thwarted lovers who finally have their way. Yet here the composer also adds in all his elegance and subtlety, giving his main character a depth reminiscent of the novels of Balzac. When he composed his opera in 1843, Donizetti, then aged forty-six, was in dire personal straits: ill and soon to become paralysed, he had lost his wife, parents and three of his children to a cholera epidemic. How he found the strength to write this wittily exhilarating gem is the great mystery of a work that remains enormously popular on stages around the world.

Don King offers each of them five thousand dollars to fight each other. Once the two boxers decide to fight, Don King must find the money he has promised each of them, by getting backed from the ruler of Zaire.
Muhammad has the love of the people in Zaire, but Foreman has been unsuccessful in gaining their love and trust. With James Brown and B. B. King performing in Zaire, this is the first opportunity for Don King to show the nation his true talent. The Black Woodstock festival is seen in this movie before the main event between Ali and Foreman, which adds an important soulful taste to this time period. One of Ali's famous moves, known as "rope-a-dope" causes Foreman to waste his energy and ends the fight in the eighth round with a total knockout. A move called "right-hand lead" was used in all of the previous rounds to wear Foreman down, but this move is not often used, due to the fact that it sets a boxer up for an effortless takedown. In return it worked in Ali's favor, because Foreman did not expect it. Ali is known for his quickness and the use of the ropes to his advantage to downplay the treacherous punches he takes from Foreman. In the end, Ali defeats Foreman and takes title as heavy weight champion, which was his to start with before it was taken from him for dodging the draft during the Vietnam War.
