Short Film
A SHORT FILM is any motion picture not long enough to be considered a feature film . The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
defines a short film as "an original motion picture that has a running time of 40 minutes or less, including all credits". The term featurette originally applied to a film longer than a short subject, but shorter than a standard feature film . The increasingly rare term "short subject" means approximately the same thing. It is an industry term which carries more of an assumption that the film is shown as part of a presentation along with a feature film. "SHORT" is an abbreviation for either term. Short films are often screened at local, national, or international film festivals and made by independent filmmakers for non profit , either with a low budget or no budget at all. They are usually funded by film grants, non profit organizations, sponsor , or personal funds

Emphysema
CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE (COPD) is a type of obstructive lung disease characterized by long-term poor airflow. The main symptoms include shortness of breath and cough with sputum production. COPD is a progressive disease , meaning it typically worsens over time. Eventually everyday activities, such as walking up stairs, become difficult. CHRONIC BRONCHITIS and EMPHYSEMA are older terms used for different types of COPD. The term "chronic bronchitis" is still used to define a productive cough that is present for at least three months each year for two years. Tobacco smoking is the most common cause of COPD, with factors such as air pollution and genetics playing a smaller role. In the developing world , one of the common sources of air pollution is poorly vented heating and cooking fires
