Many interviews and hours of filming later, when “The Age of Love” premiered in April 2014 at the Newport Beach Film Festival in California, one audience member called it “the best reality show I have ever seen.” That might be because the film is an immensely honest look at ordinary people who find themselves unexpectedly looking for love later in life.
The Building Bridges for Healthy Weight Initiatives “unconference” is a first step toward nurturing diverse, transdisciplinary research teams and fostering holistic, systems approaches to body weight research.The number shown is the maximum number of each sex we can accomodate at the venue not the number who will actually be at each event. On arrival each person is allocated a number then they sit at that table number, opposite the single person of the opposite sex with the same number to start with.Each person is given a folded Speed Dating Card and a pen.No contact information is exchanged on the spot, but if there is chemistry, both people are notified by mail and take it from there.
According to Loring, senior speed dating is on the rise; he first came across an event in Florida, where it’s a popular activity among retirees.
Attendees will be asked to describe their ideal research project or program – ignoring limitations of funding, resources, or time.
