Pacific Beach's New Reality Show Makes A Big Splash

The PB Reality Show Is Now On The Air.

San Diego, California (February 23, 2012) -- About 200 people stood in line at the Ultra Star Cinemas at Hazard Center to watch the very first episode of the PB Reality Show. After three years of filming and re-filming in the midst of cast changes and theme changes, the show finally premiered. Jim Lawlor, executive producer and one of the stars of the show is very pleased with the feedback. (See video:

The audience was asked to answer a questionnaire immediately after the showing and the comments were overwhelmingly positive: “Overall awesome!,” “Fun and funny,” “It was very good,” Great! I loved it and laughed a lot,” “It was dramatic and entertaining,” “I...liked the momentum and flow of the show,” “Pretty cool how it was based on my hometown - San Diego,” “A solid 9 out of 10.” “I was pleasantly surprised. I think you have something here.”

Lawlor, also nicknamed the “PB Millionaire,” is an inspiration to those going through hard times. When he first arrived here to San Diego 20 years ago, he had to sleep in his car as he couldn't afford his rent. He painted houses as a means to get by and, ironically, invented a pair of goggles for spray painting that made him a millionaire. (See Lawlor's Bio:

From living in his car to living in a castle here in Pacific Beach, Lawlor calls it "Living the California Dream" - which is the theme of the show. He not only is the star and executive producer, but owns the network called Pacific Beach TV that airs it. Viewers can now watch episodes at the network's website:

The show has a huge following on Facebook with 50,000 fans and counting (Facebook: “The PB Reality Show”). Lawlor and his entourage are constantly recognized wherever they go around San Diego sometimes making it difficult to film.

When asked what he has in store for future episodes, Lawlor said: “More fun!”

Finnish timber export demand rise highlighted by FRA

Finland's increased timber products expert figures show that demand for timber is set to grow, according to FRA.

Seattle, United States, February 23, 2012 -- Finland’s increased timber products expert figures show that demand for timber is set to grow, according to Forestry Research Associates (FRA).

The research and analysis consultancy was responding to figures showing that Finland’s forestry industry exports rose by 4 per cent last year, and the value of the industry increased to EUR 20.8 billion.

FRA added that the increase reflects analysts’ views that the demand for timber in China, India and other growing economies, is huge and will continue to grow. Indeed, demand will start to exceed supply, driving up timber process and proving profitable for those with cash invested in forestry, according to many experts.

FRA also cited other factors like the increase in damage from the Pine Beetle in Canada and the rise in taxed on timber export in Russia, that could lead to greater demand from Europe, South America and the US.

Timo Jaatinen, the Director of the Finnish Forest Industries Federation, said that they must keep control of the forestry industry from a domestic point of view. “The forest industry's products count among Finland's most significant export articles and they are central to the maintenance of national prosperity,” he stated.

FRA’s analysis partner, Peter Collins, said that encouraging investment in sustainable forestry management is important for the future of the industry around the world. “Putting money into sustainable forestry projects in countries like Costa Rica and Brazil, help to ensure that the industry can provide a living for generations to come.

It also helps to protect native forests through the growth on plantation trees for felling and export, while native forests can remain unscathed.”

FRA support projects such as Greenwood Management’s plantation project in Brazil that grows teak, eucalyptus and other non-native species for the production of timber and charcoal. Charcoal is in high demand in the Brazilian steel industry, which is expanding in preparation for the World Cup and the Olympics later this decade.
