showtimes and tickets

THE END OF THE LINE, the first major feature documentary film revealing the impact of overfishing on our oceans. In the film we see firsthand the effects of our global love affair with fish as food. It examines the imminent extinction of bluefin tuna, brought on by increasing western demand for sushi; the impact on marine life resulting in huge overpopulation of jellyfish; and the profound implications of a future world with no fish that would bring certain mass starvation.

Filmed over two years, THE END OF THE LINE follows the investigative reporter Charles Clover as he confronts politicians and celebrity restaurateurs, who exhibit little regard for the damage they are doing to the oceans.One of his allies is the former tuna farmer turned whistleblower Roberto Mielgo – on the trail of those destroying the world's magnificent bluefin tuna population.

Filmed across the world – from the Straits of Gibraltar to the coasts of Senegal and Alaska to the Tokyo fish market – featuring top scientists, indigenous fishermen and fisheries enforcement officials, THE END OF THE LINE is a wake-up call to the world.

OFFICIAL SELECTION - Sundance Film Festival

" This reminder of the fragility of the environment and the consequences of human greed should hook audiences."
Justin Chang, Variety

Why is this movie not in more cinemas? I'm in NYC. Better would be to put it on HULU, snagfilms, etc. and set free worldwide, and have a massive viral campaign to promote it. Too many good documentaries are produced but no one (too few) can really see them as they are not available everywhere. Filmmakers please rethink your distribution model, if you want to make a "real" impact.

I rated 5 stars without even seeing it, just because of the subject matter.

I admire the people who concieved this film and although I have not yet seen it, I feel that the people of the planet MUST see this and come to the realization that we are using up all the assets of the planet for people who could eat other things and allow the fish to become more proliffic again - then they can formulate a plan to use but not deplete the resources of the planet. I agree with Marc that more people MUST SEE THIS FILM. Find a way to put it on the internet so everyone can view it and react in a positive manner to help.

Should be shown in public libraries. Show it at universities - So the next generation will think about what's happening - FISHING IS HUNTING IN THE OCEAN!!! We can all begin to think of the history of the food we consume - But only a few have gotten the message - Just about everyone else walks like a zombie to the local fast food joint and consumes what's advertised. Wake Up!!! Time to Stand up!!! Dead Oceans = Dead Planet!!!

I've seen documentaries where fishing boats go out at night and scrap the bottom of the ocean for sea food. It was very disturbing to me to know that this was going on. A lot of the food caught up in these scoops are sea creatures that aren't even used and are tossed back dead. This isn't just a couple of boats here and there, this is hundreds of boats! I think every politician and anyone that cares about life and the planet should go see this film. There is also a new film out called "Food" about where our food comes from which includes factory farming. I hope that it gets the same publicity as this one.

Great faux salmon at Red Bamboo, NYC -- jsut a couple of blocks away... No need, taste-wise or any other wise, to eat fish with this dish available.

精准医疗又叫个性化医疗,是指以个人基因组信息为基础,结合蛋白质组,代谢组等相关内环境信息,为病人量身设计出最佳治疗方案,以期达到治疗效果最大化和副作用最小化的一门定制医疗模式。因此相较传统医疗,精准医疗具有针对性、高效性及预防性等特征。

美国医学界在2011年首次提出了“精准医学”的概念,今年1月20日,奥巴马又在美国国情咨文中提出“精准医学计划”,希望精准医学可以引领一个医学新时代。10月8日,2015全球创新论坛纽约峰会在纽约穆迪总部大楼举办。乐土投资集团CEO刘如银在峰会上介绍了他的精准医疗生态圈的想法。

刘如银介绍了乐土投资在美国的国际化实践,包括在美国的地产投资拓展,以及最新投资的医疗健康项目。乐土投资集团(CLIG)定位以硅谷的高科技投资为引擎,以科技医疗和互联网金融为两翼,链接最具价值的深科技健康项目,服务国际大健康和科技发展。

美国财政预算计划在2016年拨付给美国国立卫生研究院(NIH)、美国食品药品监督管理局(FDA)、美国国家医疗信息技术协调办公室(ONC)等机构共2.15亿美元用于资助这方面的科学研究与创新发展。

刘如银说:美国的精准医疗主要是围绕着基因组、蛋白组等方面的检测,也就是围绕分子生物学的特性,针对个体化的病理特征进行治疗。而我们所关注的不仅如此,更是系统化的,全过程、全要素、全局性的对医疗过程和临床实践进行优化。我们所指的精准医疗也是针对每一个病人的具体病情,正确选择并精确的应用适当的治疗方法。刘如银认为:精准医疗的最终目标是以最小化的医源性损害、最低化的医疗资源耗费去获得最大化的病患的效益,其前景不可限量。

精准医疗要做到个性、高效及预防的关键在于筛查和诊断,因此基因测序等检测诊断技术的发展是关键。成本的下降让基因测序商业化市场的打开成为可能,基因测序技术的成熟和商用经过了多年的发展,1980 年自动测序仪出现,2001 年完成了人类基因组框架图标志着这一技术的成熟,2007 年二代基因测序技术大幅降低测序成本,使得这一技术应用出现可能,以走在前列的Illumina 公司为例,该公司自2007 年起把当时每个基因组的测序成本费用从1000万美元降到了当下的1000 美元, 根据Illumina 公司数据,全球NGS(二代基因测序)的应用市场规模预计为200 亿美元,药品研发和临床应用是增速最快的领域,增速超过15%,肿瘤诊断和个性化用药是最有应用前景的领域,市场规模120亿美元。乐土投资与Illumina以及新一代的基因检测公司Genalyte, Centrillion都有着合作关系。

刘如银说:精准医疗作为医疗模式的革新对提高我国国民健康水平有重要意义,将在基因测序技术发展和国家政策的推动下迎来黄金发展期。精准治疗是下一个新兴朝阳行业,我们关注基因测序、肿瘤诊断及个性化用药等相关投资机会。

全球创新论坛纽约峰会由全美华人金融协会(The Chinese Finance Association, TCFA) 主办。全美华人金融协会于一九九四年在美国成立。分布在世界各地的会员来自华尔街投行、基金、监管部门、和学术界,已成为联系中美金融界最重要的桥梁之一。协会定期举行学术年会。协会本部设在纽约,并在波士顿,华盛顿,旧金山,伦敦,香港,北京和上海等金融中心设有分会。

原招商银行行长马蔚华,中信银行美国分行行长文兵,汉世纪投资管理有限公司合伙人吴皓,联合国南南合作办首席经济与投资专家杨庆宏等参加了本年度会议并发表了讲话。
