Shane Van Boening, or The South Dakota Kid, has been playing pool all of his life. From being a kid performing trick shots with his grandfather, to winning tournaments all over the world, Shane has always had a cue in his hand. This is a story about how Shane got to where he is now, and how he had to do it all with a major obstacle to overcome. This segment was produced for a program called Dakota Life. Dakota Life features interesting South Dakota people, places, and things. New episodes of Dakota Life are broadcast on the first Thursday of every month at 8:00 pm Central Time, 7:00 pm Mountain, from September through June. Watch Dakota Life episodes aired after June 2012 online for free on SDPB's PBS video portal page.

Shane Van Boening is a professional pool player living in South Dakota. He has been a pro since 2006. One of the reasons for his success is his powerful break. Here is a short segment talking about it. This was not aired on television as part of the segment for Dakota Life. It is some extra footage we had of the interview. To see the full segment, go to Watch.SDPB.org
Turn up your volume and take a moment to be astounded by some of the amazing young vocal talent we have right here in South Dakota. This is "Loch Lomond" from last weekend's South Dakota High School Chorus and Orchestra concert.

NO COVER, NO MINIMUM Returns to SDPB TV with Brulé The classic early 1980s South Dakota Public Broadcasting local music series NO COVER, NO MINIMUM is returning to SDPB Television with a new generation of musical talents who are from or performing in South Dakota. The season begins with Brulé and AIRO at 10 p.m. CT/ 9 MT Saturday, Nov.10 (after the football game). The session was recorded before a live studio audience in the SDPB Television Studio on the University of South Dakota campus. The session is available at SDPB.org, as well. Brulé (Paul LaRoche) and his band, AIRO (American Indian Rock Opera), have become one of the top-selling Native American recording groups with more than a million CDs sold worldwide. Brulé has made national appearances on Regis and Kathie Lee, CNN Worldbeat, QVC, and others. This month, the group earned two 2007 national honors at the NAMMYs (Native American Music Awards): Best Duo or Group and Best New Age Recording for "Kinship." In 2006, the Native American Music Academy awarded Brulé Best Compilation Recording for "The Collection" while his band AIRO walked away with Group of the Year for its release "Tatanka." NO COVER, NO MINIMUM is expected to air about once a month. http://www.sdpb.org
Lesson Plan - http://sdpb.sd.gov/OldSchoolScience/default.aspx This classic science demonstration shows Bernoulli's Principle. A moving stream of air produces an area of low pressure (vacuum.) Air moves from high pressure to low pressure.

This is a classic demonstration of Bernoulli’s Principle. Note: For both A. and B. (below) – gravity/weight is providing a downward force and dryer/blower is providing an upward force. There are two primary explanations for this demonstration. A.) There is a moving stream of air traveling around the ball resulting in an area of less pressure. The ball is prevented from falling out of the moving stream of air because it is pushed in by the higher pressured air adjacent to the moving stream of air. B.) The air travels around the ball and is moving at the greatest velocity at the top of the ball, resulting in an area of low pressure above the ball (lift). The ball is drawn toward the area of low pressure. This area of low pressure can be disturbed by placing a hand above the ball. Explanation B is shown in this video. NOTE: Misspoke at time 02:00 - should have said air is traveling faster instead of at the same time (https://www.grc.nasa.gov/www/k-12/airplane/wrong1.html) More - http://sdpb.org/OldSchoolScience/ This is a twist of the classic Ping-Pong ball/hairdryer demonstration used to show Bernoulli's Principle. A leaf blower replaces the hairdryer and a beach ball replaces the Ping-Pong ball. This is amazing to watch.
Dakota Life goes to the 2010 State Hand Corn-Picking Contest held at the Kiecksee farm near Flandreau. John VanLiere, a retired farmer from Colton who's also a past national corn picking champ, talks about what harvest time was like when picking corn by hand was the only way to get it done.
