Who doesn’t like taking pictures or selfies? What are the 3 things you always need when trying to get the perfect shot or selfie? 1.Light Weight, 2.User friendly tripod/selfie stick and 3.Compact. This month, I had the opportunity to utilize the MeFOTO ROADTRIP AIR. When you are on the go you want simplicity. The tripod sets up in seconds thanks to their hyperLock leg lock system. You just have to twist, extend and lock. One of the most dynamic parts of the product is that you can remove the telescoping center column which converts to a selfie stick. Included is a smartphone holder and a Bluetooth remote so you can capture your content from different types of perspectives. Reverse folding legs and compact size make it easy to fit in even the smallest of bags. Going on trains, planes and automobiles has never been so easy for journalist. Walking around NY with the folded up tripod was comfortable and fun. The carrying case can be used as a backpack and is incredibly light (2.5lb). For $175 this is a must have for journalists and photographers.

Adam and Lamia are a Christian Arab couple from Nazareth. When Lamia gets pregnant, Adam decides it’s time to make it big and provide for his family by entering the biggest local business – religion. He begins to sell Holy Air. This new business venture is unique in that Adam bottles air to sell to pilgrims.
As an entrepreneur, you can appreciate the hustle of Adam. I have to be honest I tried to sell “holy rocks” so this story definitely resonated with me. The movie is well written and truly brings audiences into this comedy-drama story. With the backdrop of the Israeli- Palestinian conflict you get a truly unique view on how people go on with their daily lives during this difficult time. When you are dealing with topics such as love, death, coexistence and business it can sometimes be complicated.Shady Srour (writer/director) does an masterful job in integrating complicated themes masterfully. Holy Air will be showing at the Tribeca Film Festival.
