David Chesky has won Independent Music Awards and received Grammy Award nominations. He has written jazz tunes, orchestral and chamber music, opera, ballet, and a rap symphony.
We are talking to David today because he composed an opera for children that teaches about the absurdity of war and acceptance of cultural diversity while exposing them to classical music. It’s called “The Mice War.” David also turned the opera into an animated movie and a soon to be produced children’s book.
“The Mice War” is about industrious Blue Mice that live in the North and the passive Red Mice that live on an Island way in the south.
The Blue Mice need to make more money so they decide they need to have a war.
The reason for the war?
The Blue Mice eat blue cheese and the Red Mice eat yellow cheese.
What would happen if the Red Mice came and made the Blue Mice eat yellow Cheese?
Since the start of the Covid-19 crisis, Maurice De Hond, a Dutch tech entrepreneur and well known pollster, has been involved in data analysis as a way to explore the way the virus spreads.

De Hond writes daily articles on the subject in his blog, maurice.nl. In the Netherlands, he is the most important critic of the policy of the Dutch CDC and the WHO. He appears frequently on TV shows, and in newspapers, as a trusted reliable source.
Listen carefully to what De Hond has to say about measuring the inside air around you. Steve Greenberg and Lois Whitman-Hess capture it all on “Lying on the Beach On Camera.”
