CRABCAKE: Lifeline 100…A 100, 60, 30, or 15 mile bike ride for charity! (September 2019)

It sounds a bit like a device you might see advertised on late night television– Lifeline 100.  Might even be a new hospital reality show. But it is anything but that.

Now in its sixth year, Lifeline 100 is the brainchild of Bike AAA and Anne Arundel County Recreation and Parks Department. It is a 100 mile bike ride that covers all corners of the county. But for those (me) not even close to being in shape to ride 100 miles, there are shorter routes–60 miles, 30 miles, 15 miles, and for the kids a bike rodeo! It is a fundraiser for several non-profits and many local businesses get in on the game. It all get started at Kinder Farm Park on Sunday, October 6th!

We talked with Colleen Joseph from the Recreation and Parks Department and get the scoop.

Looking to ride with a group?  Join ours!  Send me an email message at info@themarylandcrabs.com.  We’re doing the ALL TRAIL 30 mile ride and likely the additional 10 mile BWI trail for a total of 40. Start about 8am, guaranteed to be having beers by 1pm. Join us on Sunday, October 67th for Lifeline 100?

CRABCAKE: Let’s talk about suicide for a minute (September 2019)

OK, right up front, this is not an upbeat crabcake. Not by a long shot! But it is a conversation we need to have. Suicide rates are on the increase at alarming rates and treating the mental issues that cause suicide need to be enhanced.

This week is National Suicide Prevention Week.

We sat down with Kat Olbrich who is the Area Director for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and Dean D’Camera, a local businessman whose brother committed died by suicide fourteen years ago.  We talk about the problem, what is currently being done, and what still remains.  We learn what YOU can do when you suspect someone may be in trouble.

And we learn how you can help. The easiest way it to come out to the Annual Out of the Darkness Walk on September 21st at the Navy Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. If you can, form a team and raise some much needed funds. If you can’t, please come out and support and walk with 2000 others that have been impacted by suicide. As Dean says in the podcast, Kevin Bacon has six degrees of separation–suicide has one!

CRABCAKE: Annapolis Film Festival | Aleppo (March 2019)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs!  What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20.  In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

It happens every year…well at least for the past seven years! The Annapolis Film Festival is bringing more than 70 films to Annapolis March 21st to 24th!

We sit down to talk to the producers of “Aleppo”, a short film that attempts to change the narrative of how Syrians are depicted in the media, and ultimately change minds. By telling a story about one doctor’s experience in Aleppo, they  hope to shed light on the critical work of all doctors and victims of the war as it continues.

The film is about Hanan, a successful young Syrian-American doctor, who returns to Syria to help victims of war. When the hospital where she works is bombed, she suffers a traumatic brain injury that leaves her face blind. Unable to recognize the faces of even those closest to her, Hanan’s world has been turned upside down and her identity lost.

Now home in New York, Hanan has difficulty coming to terms with how her life has changed following the attack. Haunted by her trauma and struggling to adjust to her condition, Hanan must confront her fear of navigating the world, putting her identity, and her future as a doctor, in doubt.

Aleppo screens at 12:30pm on Sunday, March 24, 2019 at Annapolis Elementary

CRABCAKE: Annapolis Film Festival | Solace | Tchaiko Omawale (March 2019)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs!  What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20.  In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

It happens every year…well at least for the past seven years! The Annapolis Film Festival is bringing more than 70 films to Annapolis March 21st to 24th and we sat down with the founders once again to see what was in store for their seventh go around of this fantastic event that has brought millions to the area economy!

Tchaico Omawale is the writer, producer, and director of Solace. We spoke a little bit about the film and how real the characters are, the struggles they face and how they mimic some of her own as she was growing up as the child of a UN employee living across the globe. Solace is about a 17-year old girl, Sole, who is sent to live with her grandmother after her father’s death. The relationship is toxic and the film examines the struggles between the two as Sole tries to find her way and her crew. It has been banded as a coming of age movie, but deep down, this is so much more!  Omawale will be present at the screening and will be hosting a Q&A afterwards!

Solace screens at 2:45pm on Sunday, March 24, 2019 at  St. Johns College Key Auditorium!
