LOS ANGELES (CNS) - The Mary Pickford Foundation today launched an online research center and clearinghouse featuring original videos and writings, photographs, archives, collections, film clips and historical material illustrating the impact the actress and her colleagues had on the film industry. The announcement about the online site - www.MaryPickford.org-- was made in conjunction with the inaugural Mary Pickford Celebration of Silent Film, which the foundation is cohosting tonight with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences at the Academy's Mary Pickford Center in Hollywood.

Pickford was a pioneer of early cinema and a founder of United Artists, AMPAS and what is now known as the Motion Picture Home. The performer was also a producer and savvy businesswoman who helped shape the film industry as its known today.

"This online research center is our virtual office and a key element in fostering our mission to further Mary Pickford's commitment to her craft, her community and her philanthropy while inspiring future generations of women and filmmakers," said Henry Stotsenberg, president and CEO of the Mary Pickford Foundation.

"Mary Pickford conceived this foundation over 40 years ago and with this site, we are taking the power of her legacy into the 21st century," he said.

The Pickford Foundation's Archive and Legacy director, Elaina Archer, and Resident Scholar, Cari Beauchamp, designed the site to be "a central resource for writers, researchers and archivists as well as for those interested in simply learning more about Mary, her friends and the silent era," Archer said. "We will continuously be adding new material."

Beauchamp said the "intention is to create an evolving source of information, taking full advantage of new technology."

"I know that if this site had been available to me when I was writing my books, it would have saved me months of research," said said, noting that archival interviews with Pickford are posted, along with a listing of more than 100 magazine articles about her.

The Pickford Foundation recently announced a partnership with AMPAS that includes the annual celebration of silent film, the digitization of the Mary Pickford collection at the Academy's Margaret Herrick Library and an initiative to promote film preservation.

A link to the Academy's vast Pickford collection, which the actress initiated, can also be found at MaryPickford.org .

At Children's families experience coordinated, next-generation care, delivered by a compassionate, multidisciplinary team of leaders in the pediatric cardiology field. One of the largest pediatric cardiovascular programs in the region. Studies have shown that high volumes are associated with high quality and better outcomes, because experience is a major factor in quality of care. Wort was traditionally prescribed in parts of Europe for depression (in addition to use as a general-purpose tea), and Chinese medicine developed elaborate lists of herbs and preparations. With the scientific revolution in Europe and the United States, the use of traditional herbal remedies fell out of favor with the mainstream medical establishment, although a few people continued to use and maintain knowledge of traditional European herblore. In the early 20th century, scientists began reassessing this rejection of traditional herbs in medicine. Vorzüge eines intakten und lebendigen Gemeinschaftslebens bewahren.

The reasons for this are practical: many individuals in these families have a large number of nevi, and complete removal of them all is not feasible, since new atypical nevi continue to develop.
