Last Chance to Save the Salmon
Dams are devastating the salmon of the Pacific Northwest, but conservationists are hoping to topple them once and for all.
Two years ago, at age 30, Dan McLaughlin quit his job as a commercial photographer in Portland, Oregon, hoping to become a pro golfer – despite never having played a full round of golf in his life. Since then he's been learning to play, six hours a day, six days a week. His goal: cracking the PGA Tour by 2016.
He lives off the grid in Hawaii with his wife and kids, his kiteboard, his organic garden, and his stoner buddies, 3,000 miles away from the Hollywood studios that never stop calling. No wonder Woody's pretty much a walking, talking ray of sunshine. Until he's not.
In the stubbornly divisive world of TV politics, Morning Joe's former GOP congressman, Joe Scarborough, has managed to cut through the partisan noise and make a reasonably intelligent oasis of morning news. Not bad for a guy who once tried to impeach Clinton.
Tom Freston spent 26 years pushing the likes of 'Beavis and Butt-Head,' 'Yo! MTV Raps,' and 'South Park.' Then he did something really cool: He got fired, and instead of finding another gilded media perch, he took charge of Bono's nonprofit and resumed his lifelong globe-trotting – hooking up American conservatives with reformed warlords in Liberia and helping to bring his favorite medium to the Afghan masses.
In the 1970s, a new breed of American man emerged from the weight rooms of Gold's Gym in Venice Beach. Led by Arnold Schwarzenegger, a clique of world-class bodybuilders – muscle-bound, steroid-fueled, bronzed like suntanned gods – pumped iron, chased girls, and changed the world's exercise culture forever.
By the time he turned 40, Anthony Bourdain was convinced he'd never be a top chef or a great writer and he'd never realize his dream of traveling the world. A decade later he's writing bestsellers, criss-crossing the globe as TV's best-fed hedonist, and spending more time at the bar than in the kitchen.
