Bipolar Advantage/ Physics for Presidents/ Found Footage


Bipolar Advantage Mental illness has always been a part of the human condition, as has been the dilemma of how to deal with it. Author and consumer advocate Tom Wooton has a few things to say about that subject from the perspective of a man diagnosed with sever bipolar disorder. Today on Insight, Tom Wooton tells you about his latest book "Bipolar in Order: Looking at Depression, Mania, Hallucination and Delusion from the Other Side."

Physics for Presidents A UC Berkeley professor has released a new book that looks at the science of physics and how it should be used in government. Dr. Richard Muller tells you about "Physics for Future Presidents: The Science Behind the Headlines."

Found Footage The Found Footage Festival is returning to Sacramento. It's a celebration of odd videos, some of them found in garage sales and dumpters. It includes exercise videos, public access shows, corporate training programs and a surprisingly intimate presentation by Angela Landsbury. Jeffrey Callison spoke with curator Nick Prueher about the festival in April 2009.

The Found Footage Festival is at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 4th at Movies on the Big Screen at The Guild Theater, 2828 35th St., Sacramento.
