Dec 15, 2019  PBS NewsHour

The southern Italian town of Riace was once a beacon for immigrants from around the world, but three years after NewsHour Weekend first reported on how it had welcomed immigrants, a political shift has turned it into a relative ghost town. The change took place when a political party known for its anti-immigration stance swept into power. Special correspondent Christopher Livesay reports.

Are social media giants doing enough to prevent the spread of misinformation?

Dec 13, 2019  PBS NewsHour

Social media has revolutionized the way we connect and communicate — and certainly not all for the better. In his new book, “Antisocial: Online Extremists, Techno-Utopians, and the Hijacking of the American Conversation,” Andrew Marantz explores how digital platforms full of unforeseen vulnerabilities have been exploited by racists and vandals. William Brangham sits down with Marantz to discuss.

How this nomadic music group is bridging cultural divides

Dec 13, 2019  PBS NewsHour

Tinariwen’s members are Tuaregs, an ethnic group from all across the Sahara desert. They’re nomads who lay down musical rather than physical roots, and their music follows a rich Tuareg lyrical tradition — gone electric. But although the Tinariwen feel at home wherever they are on stage, some of the communities in which they perform extend hostility rather than hospitality. Ali Rogin reports.

The bacteria in our guts can break down food the body can’t digest, produce important nutrients, regulate the immune system, and protect against harmful germs. And while we can’t control all the factors that go into maintaining a healthy gut microbiome, we can manipulate the balance of our microbes by paying attention to what we eat. Shilpa Ravella shares the best foods for a healthy gut. [Directed by Andrew Foerster, narrated by Julianna Zarzycki].

Before empires and royalty, before pottery and writing, before metal tools and weapons – there was cheese. As early as 8000 BCE, Neolithic farmers began a legacy of cheesemaking almost as old as civilization. Today, the world produces roughly 22 billion kilograms of cheese a year, shipped and consumed around the globe. Paul S. Kindstedt shares the history of one of our oldest and most beloved foods.

Meet China’s ‘Basketball Girl’: An incredible story of how a young woman who lost her legs in a traffic accident fought against the odds to become champion swimmer

  • Qian Hongyan from Yunnan became the face of disability in China in 2005
  • She lost both legs in 2000 aged just four and had to walk with a basketball 
  • With no future in education, she started swimming and became a champion
  • Determined Qian has won a number of gold medals in China in recent years
  • Her inspirational story made her a young role model for China’s disabled

By Qin Xie For Mailonline

A young Chinese girl’s journey to create a future for herself, despite losing both legs in a tragic accident, has become the story that inspired thousands of disable people in China.

Qian Hongyan, from Yunnan, south west China, made the headlines in 2005 when she was photographed ‘walking’ with the help of a basketball.

Today, that same young woman is a champion swimmer with Paralympic dreams. In 2009, the determined girl became a national champion in the Chinese National Paralympics Swimming Competition.

Last September, she won another gold medal in the 100m breaststroke final in the Yunnan Provincial Paralympic Games.

Fantastical Worlds Created with Dappled Brush Strokes by Illustrator James R. Eads and Vimeo: Love in Sixty Seconds

December 6, 2019  Laura Staugaitis

Illustrator James R. Eads (previously) incorporates elements of Impressionism and fantasy in his colorful landscapes. The Los Angeles-based artist builds imagined worlds with vibrant, short brush strokes, often featuring exotic birds, half-sunken boats, and swirling star-filled skies. Eads shares with Colossal that he is deeply connected to music, which consistently influences his work. His personal passion translates to client commissions, as he has created imagery for dozens of bands ranging from The Black Keys and Leon Bridges to Jerry Garcia and Iggy Pop.

“I’ve been really inspired by a lot of different things lately, including many worlds theory—the idea of multiple universes and timelines existing simultaneously,” Eads tells Colossal. “I’ve been working on a series of pastel paintings called Many, Many Paths that explores this idea through meandering paths in otherworldly gardens.” The artist shares that his most recent undertaking is a series called Cosma Visions, “which explores the idea of past lives and reincarnation reimagined on the traditional tarot. It takes the reader through the journey of the soul in the spirit plane after death.”

Eads also experiments with Virtual Reality artwork, an example of which you can see below, and runs a screen-printing studio in Los Angeles. He produces a range of limited edition prints and other buyable items that incorporate his colorful illustrations. The artist also recently successfully crowdfunded a Lenormand deck called Green Glyphs. Shop Eads’s online store and follow along with new work on Instagram and Facebook.
