Part of the One Earth Film Festival   In the center of the Pacific Ocean gyre researchers found more plastic than plankton.  A Plastic Ocean  documents the newest science proving that plastics, once they enter the oceans, break up into small particulates that enter the food chain where they attract toxins like a magnet. These toxins are stored in seafood’s fatty tissues, and eventually consumed by us. 

Bring a piece of plastic waste to help create plastic sculptures that tell the story of our throw-away culture see how a filmmaker uses humor to change plastic bag behavior.

Killer Instinct features an in-depth tutorial (labeled the 'Dojo' mode) that not only introduces new players to Killer Instinct's systems, but also the basics of fighting game gameplay up through the intermediate and higher levels. A training mode is also included, which features a recordable CPU dummy, in-game frame data, as well as viewable hit-boxes.

Killer Instinct also features the 'Shadow Lab' - a mode that studies how a player plays the game and then uses that information to create a 'Shadow' fighter, an AI for any character which is specifically based on that player's playstyle and techniques for that specific character, complete with that player's gameplay mannerisms (even going as far as imitating a player's taunting) and flaws. Players can create Shadows to play against other players online, even when the player is not present. Shadows attempt to adapt to fights the way their owner would. Shadows for a player's specific character grow stronger the more that player plays. [15]

The game features the ability to unlock and use retro Killer Instinct music in the game's training mode, as well as character accessories and classic costumes for use in place of characters' standard appearances. Chris Sutherland, the announcer from the first two Killer Instinct titles, is featured as an optional announcer available for use, while original Killer Instinct art director Kevin Bayliss designed a set of eight costumes for the game's second season. [17] [18] The game uses Kinect's facial recognition software to save players' personalized game settings. [19]
