For many centuries, alchemists have devoted their time, energy, and knowledge in search of the “Philosopher’s Stone” otherwise known as “The Sword in the Stone” or “The White Stone by the River”, a mythical substance that can turn ordinary metal into pure gold. It is also believed that the stone can provide ultimate enlightenment and immortality.
These alchemists are often illustrated as men who seriously and obsessively work in front of several tubes and flasks, mixing elements and going through great lengths just to create the elusive material. Much like any ordinary men in this modern world, the alchemist in this heartwarming, short story directed by Carlos Stevens, got caught up in his work that he started to neglect his wife and son. His desire for gold and prestige eventually changed him. And although he was finally able to invent the machine that can successfully transform a metal into the purest form of gold, he had to pay a huge price.

“This is so huge,” Brownlee told 9News. “Having something I can actually use and drive around, that he drove around in. It just means a lot.”
Brownlee said that he had hoped to buy the car so he could have a piece of his father to himself. His father died in a shootout operation five years ago. He was so happy as he said that he had very few things to remember his father with....

Children From Palm Beach County Ask Strangers for Food in this Social Experiment.
They ask complete strangers for some food to convey a disturbing message across.
Many immigrants consider America as the "land of opportunity"- the land of stars and freedom. A land where one can have the chance of being successful and rich someday. But some are not aware that there are regions in the country where hunger and poverty are amongst the major concerns of the people.
Despite the beauty and richness of some states like the Palm Beach County in Florida, there are children and families who do not have enough food to eat.

The results gathered from this study and some others led to the development of the Palm Beach Community Food Alliance, which eventually evolved into the Palm Beach County Food Bank in 2012.
