75% of Americans without electricity live on the Navajo Nation. The documentary “Beyond the Grid” looks at why something as simple as turning on lights is so difficult for so many people living on the Navajo Nation. The documentary is produced by students from Arizona State University’s School of Sustainability and the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism.
An Arizona man combines his love for his brother with his engineering skills to make custom wheelchairs. Inside his garage, Lance Greathouse and his crew repair, restore and create motorized wheelchairs. Greathouse was inspired by his brother’s battle with Parkinson’s disease to design and build chairs that are practical and fun. Some are designed for rough terrain, others are equipped with lights and horns, and one features a flame thrower.
