Since October 2014, the streets of
Upper Manhattan have become an unexpected destination for rare sightings of
some 314 endangered birds. The Audubon Mural Project is a collaboration between the National Audubon Society
and Gitler &_____ Gallery to commission murals of climate-threatened birds
surrounding the old neighborhood of John James Audubon.
Brazilian artist L7M (previously)
depicts owls, ducks, sparrows, and other birds materializing from a chaotic
swirl of dripped paint and flourishes of spray. The graffiti birds not only
contrast urban and natural elements, but also depict a distinct clash of both
abstract and figurative techniques. According to Street Art News the artist was recently in Rome where he completed several
of the pieces you see here. Check out more of his latest mural work on Facebook.

How do you fix broken public
systems? You spark people’s competitive spirit. In a talk about getting people
motivated to make change, public sector strategist Abhishek Gopalka discusses
how he helped improve the health system of Rajasthan, a state in India home to
more than 80 million people, using the powers of transparency and public
accountability. “Motivation doesn’t just appear,” Gopalka says.
“Something needs to change to make you care.”

If you’ve been
looking for an opportunity to download free high resolution images of 435 bird illustrations,
you’re finally in the right place. The National Audubon Society has recently made John
James Audubon’s seminal Birds of America available to the public in a

Birds of America was printed between 1827 and 1838, and was filled prints
created from hand-engraved plates based on Audubon’s original watercolor
paintings. In addition to the prints, each bird’s page also includes a
recording of the animal’s call, plus extensive written texts from the period of
the book’s printing.
Audubon is widely lauded as the
individual who brought an awareness and appreciation of birds’ beauty and
fragility; the National Audubon Society has been active since 1905. Explore

A biochemist by
training, photographer Linden Gledhill is fascinated by the beauty of
infinitesimally small aspects of nature and science, from capturing the flight of insects to exploring the beauty of magnetic ferrofluid. Among his most jaw-dropping images are macro photographs of butterfly wings that reveal complex patterns that look
like perfectly organized flower petals. These tiny protrusions are actually
scales, similar to what you would find on reptile, though extremely small and
fragile. Gledhill’s photography recently inspired an episode of Smarter Every Day where Destin Sandlin learns how to
shoot similar photos. (via awkwardsituationist.tumblr.com)
Google + closed their
operation on April 2, of this year, 2019.
It is more than one week now. The
more time goes by, the more I miss people who followed my google + site, and
people that contributed their time to post their work in different communities. I decided to present on my website, the
contents of last day of posts on my Google+ site, which I had been shared from
other members of my community and other Google+ communities.
It is to remind me of human
interaction and relationships around the world.
Even though I did not see them in person, communication and
participation with their ideas, and work, can interconnect our feeling of
kinship. I wish all of them the best,
and hope we may meet again in the future.
The lesson one learns is that we need more interactions and
communications between all humans around the world to be able to find kinship
with one another. This communication can
help reduce human conflict and war that occurs around the world, now, and in

This film is also available at https://to.pbs.org/hMZzq0 Watch Daniel Goldhagen’s ground-breaking documentary
focused on the worldwide phenomenon of genocide, which premiered on PBS on
April 14, 2010. To see this and other full-length PBS videos go to https://video.pbs.org. Please support your local PBS station at https://www.pbs.org/support “By the most fundamental measure — the number of
people killed — the perpetrators of mass murder since the beginning of the
twentieth century have taken the lives of more people than have died in
military conflict. So genocide is worse than war,” reiterates Goldhagen.
“This is a little-known fact that should be a central focus of
international politics, because once you know it, the world, international
politics, and what we need to do all begin to look substantially different from
how they are typically conceived.” WORSE THAN WAR documents Goldhagen¹s
travels, teachings, and interviews in nine countries around the world, bringing
viewers on an unprecedented journey of insight and analysis. In a film that is
highly cinematic and evocative throughout, he speaks with victims,
perpetrators, witnesses, politicians, diplomats, historians, humanitarian aid
workers, and journalists, all with the purpose of explaining and understanding
the critical features of genocide and how to finally stop it.
Tiffany Bozic is a self-taught
artist based in Marin, CA who has spent the majority of her life observing the
intricacies of the natural world.
Drawing inspiration from her
extensive travels to wild places, and the research specimens at the California
Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, she composes beautiful large-scale nature
illustrations blended with surreal and metaphorical themes.
To create her compositions, Bozic
uses multiple layers of watered down acrylic paint on maple wood panels which
give a realistic level of detail to each of her paintings.

Leonardo’s famous painting “The
Last Supper” hides a secret: only 20 percent of the original work is still
visible. In the style of a thriller, the documentary attempts to reconstruct
what it originally looked like. Leonardo da Vinci was the epitome of the
Renaissance Man. May 2019 marks the 500th anniversary of his death. The artist
created world-famous works such as the fresco “The Last Supper” –
perhaps the most famous. It is still in its original setting, on the wall of
the dining room of the former Dominican convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie in
Milan. The painting, which is 4.60 meters high and 8.80 meters wide, has been
undergoing restoration for the last 19 years. But the restorers now know that
only 20 percent of the original is visible today. So what did something that is
the focus of so many legends originally look like? Our investigation also takes
us to the small Belgian abbey of Tongerlo, where a mysterious copy of da
Vinci’s work has been discovered. It is a painting on canvas that could have
been commissioned from da Vinci’s workshop by the French King Louis XII. It has
perhaps brought the researchers a step closer to the truth. _______ DW

Kinetic sculptor Bob Potts creates beautiful kinetic sculptures
that mimic the motions of flight and the oars of boats. Despite their intricacy
the pieces are surprisingly minimal, Potts seems to use only the essential
components needed to convey each motion without much ornamentation or flourish.
There is very little information online about the artist, however blogger Daniel Busby managed to get
a brief interview with the 70-year-old artist last year. If you liked this,
