Host (David Beeler) welcomes continuing guest Sir Reginald (Tom Konkle) and they talk about his latest book or invention. Dave and Tom are a British comedy team in the classic tradition of Peter Cook and Dudley Moore. Written by Dave and Tom. Pith-e Productions seeks financing for the continuation of the “Invention with Brian Forbes” comedy series on the Internet. Invention is a short, smart, funny, two person show in the classic mold of the comedy team, where each episode launches from a unique invention, book or discovery from a loony British professor, Sir Reginald Bo-hey No (Tom Konkle) who is interviewed by increasingly frustrated chat show host Brian Forbes (David Beeler) and spirals on humorous flights of fancy showcasing the comic chemistry of the two performers. Dave and Tom have been writing and doing these characters together onstage in critical hit shows for years, including Good Night, Double Act, and Dave and Tom’s: A Tribute to Dave and Tom and on the Internet in eight popular episodes of “Invention with Brian Forbes.” A Survey Of The Show So Far: See Invention here on metacafe****/daveandtom See the other home of Invention at Koldcast.tv and Tivocast *******www.koldcast.tv/video/the_astounding_book_author_interview The first episodes of the Pith-e produced series of Invention has gotten hundreds of thousands of views, its own fan following worldwide including a fan Myspace adn Veoh page dedicated to the show. myspace****/invention_comedy_series *******www.veoh****/channels/s527115 THE CHARACTERS: Host Brian Forbes (David Beeler) must each week welcome back eccentric inventor and author, Sir Reginald Bo-Hey No (Tom Konkle) who is always his guest and they riff in a short, funny sketch in the chat show format. It is a funny “Art Bell,” show like AM Coast to Coast a late night science/conspiracy show. The series has even been singled out by a serious UK television show as the comic relief on the show’s own webpage. Season 1: After a several episodes of very strange and funny interviews with Sir Reginald about his worthless inventions, Brian becomes increasingly hostile after being accommodating as he realizes he is physically trapped in this talk show with Reginald, literally walking from one side of the frame only to reappear on the other side of the frame again. They must eventually use their own ingenuity to escape, while continuing to do a chat show. What will happen when they get out into the “real” world again? Will they miss each other? Or has Brian simply been driven mad by the eccentric scientist and it’s all in his head…. Invention with Brian Forbes’ Scores KoldCast Deal, Dry Brit Wit Heads to TiVo by Marc Hustvedt on December 10th, 2008 ShareThis Invention with Brian Forbes, the new web series from comedy team David Beeler and Tom Konkle (Dave & Tom), has been picked up for a distribution deal with KoldCast TV, adding to the growing number of original series released through the Irvine-based broadband TV network. Just like After Judgment and a large crop of the Strike.TV web series, Invention will heading to millions of TiVo DVRs later this month as part of the recently announced deal between KoldCast TV and TiVo’s TivoCast service. Konkle and Beeler make up the two-man creative team at Pith-E Productions, which is also shopping Is It Safe?, another high brow original series that has been picking up attention as a clever spoof of the CSI-type procedurals. In all, the comedy duo have racked up over 12 Million views so far on their videos according to metrics company TubeMogul. Invention with Brian Forbes is minimalist British television (on the web of course), complete with a single-color backdrops and fixed public access camera setups. Beeler stars as host Brian Forbes, interviewing his recurring (and only) guest, inventor Sir Reginald Bo-Hey Know (Konkle), on his latest inventions—everything from a new calendar system to a book on cartography and even a new set of “gas pants” (above). Why would someone want to add flatulence to their own pants? Sir Reginald: Integrity, sir, integrity. As co-creator Konkle calls it, “it’s stupid comedy for smart people.” Konkle, who nails a spot-on British accent, is in fact not British at all, joked that, “I’ve actually booked more work as a Brit than as an American.” Invention itself, he added, it really a “two-hander,” a throwback to the old comedy duos that Beeler and Konkle have based their partnership on ever since they first teamed up at the Beyond the Fringe Festival back in 1999. He cites Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, who incidentally was how they first met, along with Bob & Ray as the model for their brand of intelligent, “egghead” humor—”comedy for people without ADD.” The series will use Koldcast’s website (on the Comedy Series Channel) as its main site, with the first five episodes available now with the release of new four to seven minute episode every two weeks.

- Polly Warfield These two are worthy successors to the comedy mantles of the greats, Dudley Moore and Peter Cook. Wittily penned and performed by David Beeler and Tom Konkle, crisply directed by Michael Neill, this night-blooming nosegay of skits and sketches pays proper homage to the kookily cerebral art of (late) Dudley Moore and Peter Cook. Beeler, who could well be cast as an eager young prelate just out of the seminary, is here cast as Moore. Konkle, with the mien of a solid citizen—businessman or loony--could be Cook. They are well paired and well contrasted, and what we have here, as we had there, is la creme de la creme of comedy. LA WEEKLY – Paul Birchall …writer-performers David Beeler and Tom Konkle capture the geniality and goofiness of the late, great masters of the "twitty old bean" style of English comedy. For, in this collection of gleeful and quick-witted skits, Beeler and Konkle pay homage to the buddy comedy of their predecessors…. Comedy Videos Online – Julianne Flystra But willing suspension of disbelief isn’t too hard to do here, because these fictitious Brits run through sketch after sketch without losing any steam where anything is possible and everything is gut-bustingly funny… Beeler and Konkle’s chemistry make “Invention” a treat to watch. They build off each other’s wild gestures, energy and antics as if they’ve known each other all their lives, even though they met in 1999. Dave and Tom The Sketches - Viral Video Show on Veoh**** The wide range of sketches require Beeler and Konkle to play characters who are polar opposites of each man’s previous part, yet the duo pull it off with ease. Summary: The internet series “Invention with Brian Forbes” is short, fast, funny and cheap to produce series with recurring characters and a great potential for endless, funny flights of fancy that work on all the new media platforms. Written, performed and produced by Tom Konkle and David Beeler this is a “turn key” production that’s ready to go.

BROTHERS tells the powerful story of two siblings, thirty-something Captain Sam Cahill (Tobey Maguire) and younger brother Tommy Cahill (Jake Gyllenhaal), who are polar opposites. A Marine about to embark on his fourth tour of duty, Sam is a steadfast family man married to his high school sweetheart, the aptly named Grace (Natalie Portman), with whom he has two young daughters. Tommy, his charismatic younger brother, is a drifter just out of jail who’s always gotten by on wit and charm. When his Black Hawk helicopter is shot down in the mountains Sam is presumed dead and the Cahill family suddenly faces a shocking void. Tommy tries to fill in for his brother by assuming newfound responsibility for himself, Grace, and the children. In the grief and strangeness of their new lives, Grace and Tommy are naturally drawn together. Their longstanding frostiness dissolves, but both are frightened and ashamed of the mutual attraction that has replaced it. But Sam is not dead; he and a fellow soldier have been captured by Taliban fighters. In Afghanistan’s harsh, remote Pamir Mountains, Sam is subjected to traumas that threaten to rob him of his very humanity. At the same time that Sam’s sense of self is being destroyed overseas, Tommy’s self-image is strengthening at home. When Sam unexpectedly returns to the States, a nervous mood settles over the family. Sam, uncharacteristically withdrawn and volatile, grows suspicious of his brother and his wife. Their familiar roles now nearly reversed, Sam and Tommy end up facing the ultimate physical and mental challenge when they confront each other. In the shifting family dynamics, who will dominate? Directed by six-time Oscar® nominee Jim Sheridan (IN AMERICA, IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER), BROTHERS tells the compelling tale of how two brothers come to terms with issues of love, loyalty, and manhood—and with the woman caught between them. Coming to theaters December 4th, 2009!

Architectural masterpieces have the ability to transform the landscape of any country. Petronas Towers in Malaysia, Burj Khalifa in the United Arab Emirates are just some of the modern day landmarks that are a reflection of imaginative and functional design ideas. What began as a dream of giving India an architectural masterpiece took the shape of a futuristic yet functional design called Amanora Future Towers. City Corporation, part of the 400 acre Amanora Township in Pune conceptualized an Apartment City that evolved from the shape of a hexagon. This radical new age living concept would be created based on the 'Vertical City' model. Resembling a beautiful landscape, this design will incorporate peaks and valleys, grottos and caves, canyons and bays in its design so as to give its residents a taste of adventure unlike any other. While embracing the polar opposites of calmness and rush, serenity and activity this iconic structure will have calm, quiet spaces on one end and interact with high activity road on the other end. The design will be a perfect amalgamation of traditional Indian as well as contemporary architectural styles. While iconic and imposing in its image the structure will be the true bastion of human spirit. Future Towers will be developed as a single apartment block on 585 metres x 73 metres of land. It will have 20 -- 25 storey towers with altitude not exceeding 100 metres. This architectural icon will have living as well office spaces along with multiple leisure and recreational avenues. It will have collective residential and commercial space of 4,000,000 sq ft and house 3000 to 3500 luxurious and futuristic dwellings. The Apartment City has been designed to give a sensorial experience like no other. Every apartment will either be facing 26 acres of spectacular lush greenery in the centre or vast open spaces that will have an instant calming effect. The apartment city has been designed to offer its residents an intimate connection with its surroundings while retaining its individuality and specially designed courtyards at different positions deliver this. The towers have intelligent open spaces incorporated in its design at varying altitudes featuring elite and luxurious amenities like health spa, Nature Park, gaming zone and coffee shop. These open spaces called scoops are designed to allow residents of all age groups to bond over common interests and foster community spirit. The Apartment City is not only futuristic but incorporates intelligent design features like 120 degree angles and modern triangular arches delivering plenty of natural light and breeze along with easy movement. Designed to suit modern day living needs this project does not compromise on sustainable green design aspects nor is it too ambitious to fulfil the logistical needs required by a project of this scale. Future Towers will be the first residential project in India having the tallest atrium. At 100 metres height the Atrium lobby will feature an open central area or court with luxurious waiting lounges designed for guests. The apartments have been designed with variations depending on their size as well as the view they offer. In spite of the massiveness of this project every apartment will have a balcony. The ultra luxurious amenities offered at Future Towers include a gymnasium having world class equipment, a pre-school with modern and holistic outlook towards education, a beautifully designed swimming pool and an exclusive superstore. Living in Amanora Future Towers will be a unique sensorial experience that may just alter your entire outlook towards life. Visit: *******www.amanora****/longbuildings/... Call: 91-20-3041 0000

BY MALLORY PERRYMAN ANCHOR MEGAN MURPHY You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy This Sunday....Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner hammers home the dangers of playing chicken with the debt ceiling. And the analysts weigh in...will red and blue compromise to get the budget back in black? On NBC’s Meet the Press and ABC’s This Week, Treasury Secretary Geithner made it clear- using the debt ceiling as a political bargaining chip is like playing with fire. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner: "We’d tip the U.S. economy and the world economy back into recession, depression. It would make the last crisis look like a tame, modest crisis... It would have a permanent devastating damage on our creditworthiness as a country." Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner: "If you allow people to start to doubt whether the United States of America will meet its obligations, that will be catastrophic. And you can't take that risk.” Geithner stressed he thinks both sides realize the gravity of the situation- and they’ll make it work. On CNN’s State of the Union, Tea Party favorite Rand Paul says, a compromise means both sides need to give in a little bit. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY): "There is a compromise, but the compromise is not to raise taxes. The compromise is for conservatives to admit that the military budget is going to have to be cut... Liberals will have to compromise and will have to cut domestic welfare. The compromise is where we cut not whether to raise taxes." After her interview with Paul, CNN’s Candy Crowley also talked to Democratic Senator Anthony Weiner. Here’s Crowley’s summary of where the two polar opposite senators can find middle ground. Candy Crowley (Host, State of the Union): “Let the record show that they both agreed that bringing down the debt will have to include big cuts at the Defense Department, which is a going some for the Republicans who generally don’t like that idea. So there was a little commonality but after that, not so much.” Analysts on the Sunday shows were split on whether compromise is actually in the cards. Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm says, she’s hopeful. Frm. Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D-MI): “This week the president gave the parameters on the Democratic side and Congressman Ryan gave the parameters on the Republican side. So now we know what the arena is. They agree that the deficit reduction should be about $4 trillion. They agree that everyone should put entitlements on the table.” And at the This Week roundtable, economist Alice Rivlan echoes that hopeful tone. Alice Rivlin (Brookings Institute): “I have a great deal of hope for the six senators, the so-called ‘Gang of Six’ in the Senate. Three Republicans. Three Democrats. Some very serious folks... They understand and their colleagues and I think a lot of others in the Senate, that we have to come together and reach a compromise.” But ABC’s George Will isn’t convinced. He says- President Obama hasn’t given any real details about his budget plan. George Will (ABC News): “In effect he has not yet presented other than a critique of Paul Ryan’s budget. Now the both parties are clearly making a wager. The Republicans are wagering that the American people mean what they say and that it’s different this time. The president’s party is wagering that they don’t. That they’re still rhetorically conservative but operationally liberal.” Finally- as part of our running tally of who’s in, and who’s out of the 2012 presidential race- business mogul Donald Trump tells CNN’s Candy Crowley, he wishes he didn’t have to run for President- but it’s his patriotic duty. Donald Trump: "I wish I didn't have to do it. I would prefer not doing it. But I love this country. And if you ask me, what are the odds, I'll let you know some time prior to June. But I will tell you, I am giving it serious, serious thought.” But while most of the analysts on the Sunday shows agree Trump probably won’t head up the Republican ticket, Random House’s Jon Meacham sums up what’s driving the Apprentice boss’ candidacy. Jon Meacham (Random House, Executive Editor): “Trump is an emblem of the triumph of the celebrity political culture...Trump is an interesting figure. Like all populist outbreaks, it tells you something about the frustration with both parties.” According to a new survey of Republican primary voters, Mr. Trump is tied with Mike Huckabee as the second most popular potential candidates- both trailing behind front runner Mitt Romney.

A brief ideological example of How to be happy. The tao leaves the perceiver to a common fork in the philosophical world known as duality. This idea is that there a polar opposites in all or many aspects of our existence. There is a philosophical advantage to knowing this, namely that it dictates the fact that your mind plays a larger role in your reality than we commonly believe. This ultimately also teaches that there is a gray area in definitive reality. This is backed up by certain laws of quantum physics. I use this example for happiness! Just a brief snippet of a bigger piece in the works! Thanks for listening, subscribe, share and leave me some fun in the comments!
