Independence Day Closure

All locations of Kitsap Regional Library will be closed Wednesday,July 4 for Independence Day. Regular hours will resume Thursday, July 5.

From there, it waspretty easy for Funt and his crew to ditch their guide and start spying onpeople around the Kremlin, avoiding the “sensitive areas.”Calming their own nerves was a different matter. “Tension was always high when we shot Candid Camera scenes because of the unpredictability of human nature,” Funt wrote. “But now we were playing for much higher stakes. For all we knew, the KGB might throw us in a Siberian prison camp, and we’d never be heard from again.” But the team persevered,shooting film from their hotel balconyandfrom carsand hauling out theirpracticedbag of tricks (not to mention the concrete suitcase).

They soon found that their regular observations—of tourists, policemen, pedestrians, and families—weremore revealing and interesting than the gags. As the above video shows, the footagethey shot of people just going about theirlives is intimateand,despite the narrator’s talk of “different customs,” familiar.Teenagers slow-dance awkwardly, and spectators eat ice cream at a track meet. A man spends too much on a fur hat. A pinhole camera, hidden in a cardboard box and positioned in front of apopular monument, shows how Russians posefor their own non-candid shots,arranging their families, fixing their clothes, shooing away photobombers—and,in a true twist for Candid Camera ,purposefully not smiling.

In the end, the hardest part was going back home.First, Funt had to smuggle the film backthrough customs–something he thought he had done successfully, right up until he screened it back in New York. “Apparently, the Russian officials, knowing full well of our activities, had attempted to destroy all the film, perhaps as it was passed through the baggage service,” he wrote. They had largely succeeded, and what was left was “fogged”–not broadcast quality. Funt hadn’t been as sneaky as he thought.

The whole enterprise—secret trip, politically-fraught subject, spotty film—made for some rough conversations with the network.Newspaper articles leading up to the special Moscow episode of the show spoke soberly of CBS giving “ special study and consideration ” to the film, and “ taking more than the usual precautions .”

When the show finally aired, in October of 1961, most of Funt’s intuitions turned out to be correct. Critics and fans alike appreciated a glimpse into Soviet life that wasvery different from what they were usually offered—an interviewin the Milwaukee Journal teasing the episode , in whichFunt says “the average Russian is pretty much like everyone else,” is bookended by otherarticlesabout films“heavily larded with Soviet propaganda,”anda new effort by the Veterans of Foreign Wars to “alert the American public to the dangers of world communism” (not to mention a suggestive baseball headline, “Yankees Beat Reds 3-2”).

Press release

Introduces set of resilience principles

For immediate release

Washington, D.C. – May 10, 2016 – The American Institute of Architects (AIA), National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) and 38 other leaders of America’s design and construction industry, today released a report on progress made on the resilience front since the Resilience Building Coalition announced the Building Industry Statement on Resilience two years ago.

The Resilience Building Coalition also released a set of guiding principles to help the building industry adopt resilient design and policies. These include developing and advocating for codes and policies that advance resilience; developing “whole-systems resilient design” approaches for the built environment; and providing guidance, beyond the baseline life-safety codes, that recognizes the importance of fortifying property for individual and community resilience. Since the initial signing, the Coalition has added 19 new signatories (a complete list is available at the end of this release).

The report includes results from a survey of signatories about how their work has been impacted by the Building Industry Statement on Resilience. Among the survey’s major findings:

The report is an outgrowth of a landmark agreement made in May 2014, in which leaders of America’s design and construction industry agreed to promote resilience in contemporary planning, building materials, design, construction and operational techniques as the solution for making the nation’s aging infrastructure more safe and secure.

“Resilient design places architects at the center of the solution, with particular emphasis on the private, non-governmental sectors," said American Institute of Architects CEO Robert Ivy, FAIA. “I would like to congratulate my fellow leaders in the design and construction sector for joining together to make sure resiliency is not viewed as just a fad but remains front and center in our efforts moving forward.”

The list of organizations who have signed the joint statement on resilience is as follows (new organizations are marked with an asterisk):
