Cool Stuff: AmSam Center of Presidential Universe

Cool Stuff: Pago does Costco

Cool Stuff feels like a proud uncle as Tri Marine/STP's free school caught skipjack is in a Costco store near your cousin's house (not yours) all over the 50 states.
 
Several months ago I got to shoot the inner sanctum of STP, as the product was first being unloaded, butchered, cleaned, canned, labeled and packaged. The only image released to date was my shot of a butchery shop worker in Bloomberg's "Business Week."

The American Samoa Council on Arts, Culture and Humanities, with funding by the Community Development Block Grant Program rebuilt the Jean P. Haydon Museum Fale Samoa, which had fallen into disrepair — the roof basically falling in.

Cool Stuff: Para Kito, Namu Bye, Bye

Just when we all thought it was safe to go back out into the World... the Namus once again made their presence a serious health issue.
 
Departing the territory last month I made sure my Savai'i daughter got every last drop of mosquito spray I had delivered air express cargo, by Polynesian Airlines.
 
The spray got there, but we were left wondering if she regularly used it?

Cool Stuff: Gear VR; The future today

Remember when Sony had a headset that plugged into your portable DVD player so you could watch virtual big screen? That was so mid 2000’s. Nice, but not really a wow factor thing.
 
Samsung’s $100 Gear DV is inexpensive because you pop in your Samsung Galaxy S6 cell phone as the guts, do an initial minor focusing… and you enjoy the future today
