During his speech at the DNC, Obama said that Trump ‘hasn’t grown into the job because he can’t’ and reminded voters to not ‘let them take away your power.

Whose Vote Counts (full film) | FRONTLINE

Oct 20, 2020  FRONTLINE PBS | Official

As America chooses its next president in the midst of a historic pandemic, FRONTLINE investigates whose vote counts — and whose might not. Subscribe on YouTube: http://bit.ly/1BycsJW In this documentary with Columbia Journalism Investigations and USA Today, New Yorker writer Jelani Cobb reports on allegations of voter disenfranchisement, how unfounded claims of extensive voter fraud entered the political mainstream, rhetoric and realities around mail-in ballots, and how the pandemic could impact turnout. With director June Cross, the Fred W. Friendly Professor of Media and Society at Columbia, and producer Thomas Jennings, Cobb scrutinizes one of the first elections held during the pandemic — Wisconsin’s April 2020 primary, which saw long lines, claims of disenfranchisement, an unprecedented number of absentee ballots and dueling legal battles between Republicans and Democrats. The film places the election within the context of America’s history around voting rights and suppression, and discovers lessons for the country as a whole as the November presidential contest approaches. #Election2020 #WhoseVoteCounts #Documentary Watch “Whose Vote Counts” starting Tues., Oct. 20: https://to.pbs.org/3jecZef Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/frontlinepbs Twitter: https://twitter.com/frontlinepbs Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/frontline FRONTLINE is streaming more than 300 documentaries online, for free, here: http://to.pbs.org/hxRvQP Funding for FRONTLINE is provided through the support of PBS viewers and by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

Judge Sullivan Issues Two GOOD Court Orders, 1 in DeJoy/Mail Sorting Machines Case & 1 in Flynn Case

Oct 24, 2020  Glenn Kirschner

Judge Emmett Sullivan Orders the Trump administration, Postmaster General Louis DeJoy and the US Postal Service to return to service the high-speed mail sorting machines that DeJoy decommissioned. In the Mike Flynn case, Judge Sullivan orders Bill Barr’s Department of Justice to review all filings, documents and evidence the DOJ has submitted to the court and certify that none of it has been altered, after DOJ was caught altering the notes of two of Trump’s perceived enemies, Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe. DOJ claimed the alteration of the evidence was “inadvertent.” Judge Sullivan said the alterations were “unsettling.” Please consider becoming a #TeamJustice patron at: https://www.patreon.com/glennkirschner My podcast, “Justice Matters with Glenn Kirschner” can be downloaded where you get your podcasts.

REVEALED: Trump’s hidden video deposition in Trump University fraud case

Sep 18, 2020  Mother Jones

? Full analysis on the Trump University deposition: https://www.motherjones.com/deposition ? Full Trump “hot-mic” tape with commentary: https://youtu.be/SqNtc-t0Cr0 ? Trump deposition “hot-mic” tape highlights: https://youtu.be/fZw228yu0hI During the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump was burdened with federal lawsuits that accused him and his Trump University of defrauding students who had paid thousands of dollars to learn the supposed secrets of Trump’s financial success. As part of the lawsuit, Trump sat for a contentious six-hour deposition in Trump Tower on December 10, 2015. He subsequently managed to get the court to seal the video recording of the session. But Mother Jones has now obtained the full video of Trump’s deposition. The written transcript of the session was released in June 2016, but the video version includes several exchanges that likely would have not played well for Trump if they had become public when he was chasing votes. Had the video deposition been released during the campaign, it probably would have yielded ammo for anti-Trump ads. The video shows Trump parrying with the lawyer for the plaintiffs, Jason Forge, over various issues, including false statements made by Trump University employees and Trump’s own memory. Trump at one point griped, “It’s the most ridiculous lawsuit I’ve ever seen.” He claimed not to remember having boasted that he possessed one of the best memories in the world and repeatedly said he could not recall matters related to the fraud case. He downplayed false and misleading statements presented by Trump University instructors as merely “hyperbole,” refusing to label them “false.” He even disavowed a passage from one of his own books in which he had assailed educational institutions for committing “fraud.” Mother Jones was provided the video by a source who asked not to be identified. Art Cohen, who was a lead plaintiff in one of the lawsuits against Trump University and Trump, confirmed that this was the actual video of the deposition. (Last month, Mother Jones posted a video of a conversation that occurred during a break in these proceedings between Trump and Dan Petrocelli, Trump’s attorney, in which Trump boasted of threatening the Better Business Bureau to change the D grade it awarded Trump University to an A.) Trump University shut down in 2010. Though Trump vowed during the 2016 campaign that he would never settle the Trump U lawsuits, days after the 2016 election, he did just that. He paid the students $25 million, without acknowledging any wrongdoing. NOTE: We are providing subtitles for this video that draw on details, including names, found in the official court transcript: https://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-sta… 00:00 Introduction 00:44 Trump’s memory: best in the world? 02:07 The name game 07:00 Trump can’t name one instructor 07:27 “I’ve heard good things.” 08:27 Trump praises Hillary Clinton 14:59 Trump’s fraud flip-flop 17:58 Trump won’t call a lie a lie 21:45 Another lie Trump won’t acknowledge 25:53 Doing “well” by losing #Trump #Deposition #TrumpUniversity — For more award-winning independent reporting, visit Mother Jones: https://www.motherjones.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/motherjones/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/motherjones Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/motherjonesmag

Watch NASA’s OSIRIS-REx Spacecraft Attempt to Capture a Sample of Asteroid Bennu

Streamed live on Oct 20, 2020  NASA

Let’s do this, OSIRIS-REx! Time to journey #ToBennuAndBack. Tune in to our live broadcast as our spacecraft descends to the surface of asteroid Bennu, touches down for a few seconds & attempts to capture regolith (rocks and dust) using a “Touch-And-Go,” or TAG, maneuver. The spacecraft must target Bennu’s rocky surface with great accuracy, touching down within a rocky area just 52 ft (16 m) in diameter. During the maneuver, the spacecraft and the asteroid will be approximately 207 million miles (334 million km) from Earth. Live coverage from Lockheed Martin’s facility in Denver, Colorado, with mission managers from the University of Arizona, Lockheed Martin, and NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center begins at 5 p.m. EDT.  The spacecraft is scheduled to depart Bennu in 2021, and to deliver the collected sample to Earth on Sep. 24, 2023. It will be the first U.S. mission to carry samples from an asteroid back to Earth, and the largest sample returned from space since the Apollo era.

Photographer Captures Unique Image of the Moon Disguised as Saturn

My Modern Met: Photographer Captures Unique Image of the Moon Disguised as Saturn

By Jessica Stewart on September 25, 2020

Guatemalan photographer Francisco Sojuel was already having an incredible evening as he climbed the Acatenango volcano. It was Christmas Eve 2019 and he’d settled in at the basecamp when he noticed something breathtaking in the night sky. In the early morning hours, just before sunrise, Sojuel looked up and saw the Moon surrounded by a ring of clouds. Incredibly, the clouds made it look like the Moon was “dressing up” like Saturn. Recognizing the unique quality of the moment, Sojuel fired off some shots and came away with a once-in-a-lifetime image.

In his photograph, we can see the Moon circled by the clouds as it hovers over the landscape. A silhouette of Pacaya volcano and the Guatemalan highlands fills out the lower portion of the image and enhances its drama. According to the photographer, the cloud is actually a cirrostratus cloud. These high-level, thin clouds are made of ice crystals. At certain angles, they create halos around the moon. Given that there’s no real halo around this Moon and the texture of the cloud is a bit fluffy, it might be a cirrostratus fibratus or a cirrus spissatus cloud. These are both denser and are often formed by strong winds.

Sojuel is known not only for his incredible landscape and adventure photography, which includes shooting live volcanos, but also his astrophotography. He takes in the night sky as he goes about his adventures, giving his own unique perspective on Central America’s starry sky.

See more of Francisco Sojuel’s beautiful astrophotography.

Why a Democratic landslide could crush the GOP for years to come

As November 3 draws closer, independent political handicappers are revising upwards the likelihood of Joe Biden winning the presidency and Democrats making gains in Congress.

Full “hot-mic” tape without commentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRX0C… ? Read the full article at Mother Jones: https://bit.ly/2Z3Rgyg 00:00 Introduction 00:20 Tape begins 02:42 Trump talks about the lawsuit 05:08 Trump University background 06:24 Talking about the judge 07:25 “What about the Spanish thing?” 09:27 Trump’s chances of winning the case 12:18 Talking tactics 16:30 Tom Barrack’s marriage: “Is she beautiful?” 18:35 How strong is the case? 22:14 Trump defends Trump University 23:13 Trump claim: threatening to sue the BBB 27:04 Preparing to continue the deposition 27:56 Outro — Last week, during the Hatch Act-shattering Republican National Convention, Mother Jones’ Washington DC bureau chief David Corn published a new hot-mic video of Donald Trump: a 13-minute conversation between Trump and his lawyer, captured during a break between videotaped depositions for the 2015 fraud lawsuit against Trump University. As David wrote: Trump boasted about how his company threatened the Better Business Bureau to change the D rating it had assigned Trump University to an A. He complained about the federal judge overseeing the suit, Gonzalo Curiel, elliptically talking about how to challenge him and referring to “the Spanish thing.” Trump also griped that he had been sued personally in this case, and Petrocelli had to explain to Trump that he, not just Trump University itself, was in the legal crosshairs because Trump had been accused of making false statements to promote the venture. And Petrocelli pointed out that the case was not a lock for Trump because some of Trump’s “guys” had been “sloppy.” We published the original full-length source video as well a shorter video that highlights the most revealing moments from the recording. But The Internet asked for more. Readers and commenters asked for a full transcript and even more context. (2,000 words isn’t enough?)

Rare “Blue Moon” Will Be Visible Around the World on Halloween

My Modern Met: Rare “Blue Moon” Will Be Visible Around the World on Halloween

By Jessica Stewart on September 23, 2020

Astronomy lovers have a special treat in store for Halloween. A rare blue moon will be on view across all time zones for the first time since 1944. But, if you’re getting your hopes up for seeing the moon actually tinged blue, you’ll have to wait for another moment—a blue moon has nothing to do with the color.

There are two types of blue moons. The first refers to the second full moon in a calendar month. The other type is a seasonal blue moon, which is the third of four full moons across a season. Sometimes a blue moon can be both monthly and seasonal, but it’s very rare. In fact, it won’t happen until 2048.

The blue moon the world will be watching on October 31 is the monthly variety. This second full moon in October comes after the first full moon on October 1. While the last monthly blue moon happened on March 31, 2018, this year’s version is even rarer, which is owed to the scope of its visibility. The Halloween blue moon will be on full display no matter where you live on Earth—something that won’t happen again for another 19 years!

Though you may end up seeing photos of blue-hued moons online after the event, don’t be fooled. These are doctored images that have been turned blue by filters or Photoshop. Blue moons aren’t any different in color than a regular full moon. Moons can sometimes be blue, but for a different reason. Certain changes to atmospheric conditions can release particles into the atmosphere that scatter red light, causing the blue appearance. This might happen after a volcanic eruption or a fire.

But even though the blue moon isn’t blue, it doesn’t mean that it’s not worth looking out for. And as you gaze up at the sky, you can marvel at the fact that anywhere on Earth, people are seeing the same blue moon.

Perfectly Timed Photo Frames a Solar Eclipse Around a Man Leading a Camel in the Desert

Perfectly Timed Photo Frames a Solar Eclipse Around a Man Leading a Camel in the Desert

By Sara Barnes on January 23, 2020

 Awe-inspiring photographs all have something in common—the photographer was in the right place at the right time. Sometimes, it’s by happenstance; but, as photographer Joshua Cripps demonstrates, it is often the result of months of preparation. The California-based creative was planning on being in the Middle East in mid-December 2019 when he found out there would be an annular solar eclipse. This event convinced him to extend his trip to snap a picture of the magnificent sight. And thanks to his “crazy amount of planning,” he was able to capture a shot of the eclipse perfectly framing a man walking a camel across a sand dune.

So, how did Cripps pull off this photograph? “The whole shoot was meticulously planned,” he reveals to My Modern Met, “from the country (UAE) to the location (Liwa desert), to even the GPS coordinates of where I and camel would both stand, as well as the focal length of the lens I would use. Even the timing was planned, down to the minute of when the eclipse would appear in the frame behind the man and his camel.”

Cripps used an app called PhotoPills to first determine the ideal location, and then he began to think about the subject matter. He wanted something that would be “representative of the region and landscape,” and he eventually settled on a camel as it was a domesticated animal easier to control than a creature like a falcon or an Arabian horse.

As for sand drifts, not just any dune would do. Cripps had specific requirements for how tall the dune would have to be in order to get the shot. He knew that he would have to stand almost exactly 1,000 feet away from the camel to get the correct proportions between the size of the camel and the sun. He also realized that he’d need a dune that was visible against the sky when standing at an angle of 6.15 degrees. Luckily, Cripps was able to find a sand dune that met his stringent criteria.

With all the planning done, Cripps could only wait until the eclipse began. And once it did, he was in constant motion: getting things in place, shooting test exposures, and continually altering his compositions to chase the sun. The entire eclipse lasted nearly two and a half hours, and Cripps spent 23 minutes snapping a series of 133 images that captured the essence of what he set out to do.

Cripps is already thinking about shooting future eclipses, and he won’t have to wait too long. There will be a total solar eclipse visible in a “small slice” of South America on December 14, 2020. He’s now brainstorming what he’ll shoot during that time.

Thanks to meticulous planning, Joshua Cripps was able to capture amazing solar eclipse photography of a man walking a camel across a sand dune.

Cripps doesn’t speak Arabic and the man doesn’t speak English, so Cripps drew a picture of what he wanted the shot to look like.

Over the span of 23-minutes, Cripps snapped 133 photos.

In his revealing new book, “It Was All a Lie: How the Republican Party Became Donald Trump,” Stevens admits the GOP uses race as an issue to divide Americans and win elections — and says the party has abandoned its principles in the Trump era. He joins Judy Woodruff to discuss.

#WashWeekPBS full episode: President Trump defends his administration’s COVID-19 response

Aug 7, 2020  Washington Week

President Trump has been eager to project optimism about the COVID-19 pandemic but has faced scrutiny from reporters. In an interview aired this week with Jonathan Swan of Axios, the president responded to rises in death rates by saying “it is what it is,” while insisting the White House is doing everything it can to combat the virus. Meanwhile, in Congress, Democrats and the White House could not agree to a new round of stimulus or an expansion of the $600 supplement to unemployed Americans that expired last week. The panel discussed the president’s response to the coronavirus crisis, the fate of a deal in Congress and the potential candidates to serve as Joe Biden’s vice-presidential pick. Panel: Lisa Desjardins of the PBS NewsHour, Robert Draper of The New York Times Magazine and National Geographic, Abby Phillip of CNN, Jonathan Swan of Axios

Natural Phenomenon Transforms Hummingbird’s Wings into Tiny Rainbows

My Modern Met: Natural Phenomenon Transforms Hummingbird’s Wings into Tiny Rainbows

By Sara Barnes on July 11, 2019

Artist and photographer Christian Spencer was standing on his verandah in Rio de Janeiro when he made an amazing discovery. When the black Jacobin hummingbird flew with the sun striking its open wings, a beautiful prism effect appeared. At that moment, it was as if its body was made of rainbows.

In 2011, Spencer recorded the bird’s movements for a film called The Dance of Time. The movie went on to receive 10 international awards as well as three best film honors. But, that wasn’t the end of the rainbow hummingbirds. Several years later, Spencer returned to the subject. “I decided to try and photograph the same phenomenon with my camera,” he shares with My Modern Met. The resulting series is called Winged Prism, and for Spencer, the images reveal “a secret of nature that cannot be seen with our eyes.”

Although Winged Prism seems too magical to be true, Spencer says that there wasn’t any digital manipulation involved. “There is no special technique,” he explains, “just diffraction of light through the wings of this special hummingbird.” The awe-inspiring beauty it produces is what makes these images so special. “Nobody ever could have ever dreamed that this was a reality,” he says. “I receive emails every day from people across the world touched by these images.”

One image from Winged Prism is now available as a limited edition print from Spencer’s website.

Artist and photographer Christian Spencer captured the awe-inspiring sight of the sun shining on a black Jacobin hummingbird’s wings.

The result is a prism effect and makes it look as though the creature’s body is made of rainbows.

Amid the McCarthy hearings and the launch of the civil rights movement in the 1950s, painter Jacob Lawrence sought to frame early American history the way he saw it. His ensuing work, the sprawling series “Struggle,” has been reassembled and is now on a national tour, with its first stop at the Peabody Essex Museum in Massachusetts.

The New York Times: By Chris Stanford, Monday, March 9, 2020 – Morning Briefing  

Monday, March 9, 2020 | View in browser
(Want to get this briefing by email? Here’s the sign-up.)
Good morning.
We’re covering updates in the coronavirus outbreak and the latest in the Democratic presidential race. We also explain a dispute over classified portions of the U.S. agreement with the Taliban.
 By Chris Stanford
A plunge in stocks to start the week
Global markets fell sharply today, and Wall Street looked set to follow suit, as the effects of the coronavirus outbreak deepened and Saudi Arabia cut oil prices nearly 10 percent over the weekend. Here are the latest market updates.
The Saudi decision was in retaliation for Russia’s refusal to join OPEC in a large production cut as the outbreak continues to slow the global economy.
In the U.S., the number of coronavirus cases has grown to more than 530. On Sunday, the country’s leading expert on infectious diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci, said regional lockdowns could become necessary and recommended that those at greatest risk — older adults and people with underlying health conditions — abstain from travel.
Here are the latest updates on the virus and a map of where it has spread.
Related: A cruise ship that has been held off California after 21 people aboard tested positive for the virus is set to dock today in Oakland. More than 3,500 passengers and crew members will be taken to military facilities around the country to be quarantined for 14 days. The State Department on Sunday advised Americans against traveling on cruise ships.
Closer look: Dr. Fauci has become the chief explainer of the epidemic, partly because other government scientists have either avoided the spotlight or been reined in by the Trump administration.
News analysis: President Trump, who seems at his strongest politically when he has a human target to attack, has found it harder to confront the threat of an invisible pathogen, our chief White House correspondent writes.
In other developments:
? State and federal officials have yet to require school closings, but more individual districts and schools are shutting down.
? Two members of Congress, including Senator Ted Cruz, said they would self-quarantine after interacting at the Conservative Political Action Conference with a person who tested positive for the virus. Mr. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence spoke at the meeting last week.
? One of the world’s leading tennis tournaments has been canceled. Qualifying matches for the BNP Paribas Open, known as Indian Wells, were to have begun today.
What to know: Here’s how to quarantine yourself if you need to and answers to questions about the virus.
Italians are urged to respect lockdown
As the site of the worst outbreak of the coronavirus outside Asia, Italy has announced strict measures that limit the movements of about a quarter of the population. To bolster the effort, the country’s leaders have appealed to Italians to reject “furbizia,” the sort of cleverness typically channeled into getting around bureaucracy.
“We are the new Wuhan,” one woman in the closed-off northern region of Lombardy said on Sunday.
Go deeper: The lockdown may save lives, but analysts say it will paralyze Italy’s economic heartland and almost certainly tip Europe into a recession.

Better brain health | DW Documentary

Mar 5, 2020  DW Documentary

Chocolate reduces stress. Fish stimulates the brain. Is there any truth to such popular beliefs? The findings of researchers around the world say yes: It appears we really are what we eat. A study in a British prison found that inmates who took vitamin supplements were less prone to violent behavior. And in Germany, a psychologist at the University of Lübeck has shown that social behavior is influenced by the ingredients consumed at breakfast. But what really happens in the brain when we opt for honey instead of jam, and fish rather than sausage? Scientists around the world are trying to find out. Neuro-nutrition is the name of an interdisciplinary research field that investigates the impact of nutrition on brain health. Experiments on rats and flies offer new insight into the effects of our eating habits. When laboratory rats are fed a diet of junk food, the result is not just obesity. The menu also has a direct influence on their memory performance. The role of the intestinal flora has been known for some time, but scientists are currently discovering other relationships. So-called “brain food” for example: The Mediterranean diet that’s based on vegetables and fish is said to provide the best nutrition for small grey cells. Omega-3 fatty acids, which are found in fish, for example, protect the nerve cells and are indispensable for the development of the brain – because the brain is also what it eats! ——————————————————————– DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Ask any deep space navigator like Jill Seubert what makes steering a spacecraft difficult, and they’ll tell you it’s all about the timing; a split-second can decide a mission’s success or failure. So what do you do when a spacecraft is bad at telling time? You get it a clock — an atomic clock, to be precise. Let Seubert whisk you away with the revolutionary potential of a future where you could receive stellar, GPS-like directions — no matter where you are in the universe.

This talk was presented to a local audience at TEDxUCLA, an independent event. TED’s editors chose to feature it for you.

NASA’s Curiosity Has Been On Mars For More Than 7 Years And Here Are Its 30 Best Photos

Giedr? Vai?iulaityt?  BoredPanda staff

For us, mere mortals, Mars is a no man’s land where survival seems like a distant dream. After all, no man has ever walked on its surface (as far as we know) and plans to send one to the red planet are only in the early stages of its development. However, humans have touched Mars through the durable wheels of Mars rovers. We’ve had 4 successful robotically operated Mars rovers (all of which were managed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, NASA) so far: Sojourner, Opportunity, Spirit, and Curiosity. 

As Opportunity’s mission was declared complete on February 13, 2019 when NASA lost all contact with the vehicle, Curiosity became the lone survivor on the red planet, rolling over its surface to examine and explore the unknown land all by itself. The spacecraft first landed on Mars on August 6, 2012 and started carrying out its objectives throughout the years. In fact, Curiosity did its job so well and held on for so long that its original mission duration of 687 days was expanded indefinitely. 

Here’s how Curiosity looked 7 years ago and now

Curiosity is approaching its 8 year anniversary on Mars and while it is currently the only functional rover on the planet (after we all, unfortunately, had to say goodbye to Oppy), NASA has plans to send it some company in the shape of Mars 2020 rover. The 2020 mission is scheduled to start on 17 July to 5 August 2020 when the rocket carrying the rover will be launched. NASA also announced a student naming contest for the rover that was held in the fall of 2019. The final name will be announced in early March 2020, so we definitely have something to look forward to!

These Exotic Trees Transform Into Rainbows as Their Barks Shed

Eucalyptus trees are most known for their fragrant leaves and for being the main food source for koalas, but did you know that they can also be quite colorful? In fact, Eucalyptus deglupta is so colorful that it’s known as the rainbow eucalyptus. When this incredible tree sheds its bark, it almost looks like a colored pencil being sharpened. This makes for a spectacle that is unforgettable.

Also known as the Mindanao gum or rainbow gum, the rainbow eucalyptus is a tall tree that is unique in that it’s the only eucalyptus to live in the rainforest and only one of four species found outside of Australia. It can be found in the Philippines, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea, where it can soar up to 250 feet in the air. While its height is impressive, it’s really the tree’s multicolor bark that makes it stand out.

As the rainbow eucalyptus sheds, it first reveals a bright green inner bark. Over time, this ages into different colors—blue, purple, orange, and maroon. The colorful striations are created due to the fact that the tree doesn’t shed all at once. Slowly, over time, different layers fall off, while other exposed areas have already begun aging.

This process makes for a spectacular visual, with the rainbow eucalyptus looking like it could be pulled from Alice in Wonderland. Its unique appearance has also made it quite popular amongst garden enthusiasts. It can be found in botanical gardens around the world and is often planted as an ornamental tree in Hawaii, Texas, Louisiana, and Southern California, where the frost-free climate allows it to thrive.

Interestingly, the rainbow eucalyptus also has a high commercial value that has nothing to do with its color. The tree is often found at tree plantations, as it’s an excellent source for pulpwood—the main ingredient in making white paper. So the next time you pull out a blank sheet, just remember that it may have originally been something much more colorful.

The rainbow eucalyptus gets its name from its colorful appearance.

Industrial agriculture is increasingly dominating the world market. It’s forcing small farmers to quit and taking over vast swathes of land. This documentary shows how destructive the lucrative agribusiness is. Whether in the USA, Brazil, Mozambique or China, agricultural giants rule the market. Food production has become a gigantic business as climate change and population growth continue. This is having devastating consequences for small farmers and for the environment. On the banks of North Carolina’s New River, there’s a vile stench. Clean water activist Rick Dove takes a flight to show us what’s causing the smell. Scores and scores of pigs are living upriver, in so many pens the farms look more like small towns. “We have eight to ten million pigs here. And the problem is that they are kept so close together and their excrement pollutes and threatens the water and natural life on the North Carolina coastline.” From above, you can see large cesspools everywhere, shimmering red-brown in the sun. Dove is giving us a bird’s-eye view of industrialized agriculture. In the late 1970s, companies in the US began to industrialize farming. Large corporations like Smithfield built entire value chains, from raising livestock to slaughter to packaging and sales. A Chinese holding company bought Smithfield a few years ago. Industrial meat production is supposed to support increased Chinese demand for meat as the country’s prosperity grows. Dan Basse is the head of a company analyses global agriculture. He says calorie demand will also increase in countries like India, Bangladesh and Nigeria in the next few years.” And with it, the demand for even more inexpensive meat of the kind agribusinesses produce and market. ——————————————————————– DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Bees Create Heart-Shaped Hive When There Aren’t Frames Up to Guide Them

By Jessica Stewart on February 10, 2020

If you ever needed evidence that bees were artists, take a look at this incredible photograph posted by The National Trust. Left to their own devices, the bees at Bodiam Castle in Robertsbridge, United Kingdom made quite the spectacle. Within the structure of their hive, they created a delightful heart-shaped honeycomb that looks as sweet as it tastes.

This may seem like an odd sight, but that’s only because we’re used to beekeepers placing rectangular frames within the hive. The bees then deposit their honey and build a comb directly onto the frame, which can be easily taken out and harvested by the beekeeper. But the reality is, bees will use as much space as they have to store honey. In fact, natural hives can take on all shapes and sizes.

For instance, sugarbag bees, which are native to Australia, make hives that form large spiraling structures. In temperate climates, some bees will even form an “open colony” where the entire hive is exposed. These can hang off of trees, fences, or overhangs and take on impressive oblong shapes.

Still, the photograph from Bodiam Castle is fascinating because it was formed within the wood frame of a hive. Beekeeper gregthegregest2 mentioned on Reddit that this is a common occurrence when the bees are left a large gap between the top of the frames and the roof of the hive. Of course, it makes good sense that these hard workers would take advantage of every inch given to them. While the shape is beautiful, this can be a headache for beekeepers when looking to harvest their honey. They need to cut away the extra honeycomb in order to free the frames below.

Of course, the skill of bees is well known. In fact, even artists have taken advantage of their capabilities by working with bees to create everything from sculptures to embroidery. So the next time you see a honey bee buzzing from flower to flower, just imagine what interesting artistry might happen when it makes its way back to the hive.

When left to their own devices, bees are incredible architects.

They can create incredible shapes from their honeycomb, whether in boxes or out in nature.

Awe-Inspiring Nokia 5G Paper Cut Creative Illustrations by Eiko Ojala

Hey there guys! So, we are back with yet another interesting blog of ours and we are hopeful that you are going to love it as much as we do – mainly because it is one of our favorite topics to cover (and we are sure that you know this too!) and also because well, it feels so great to come across artists who put in their brain, heart and hands to create magic. Our today’s blog will cover Nokia 5G paper cut illustrations by Eiko Ojala and we would like to get started right now.

Before we start explaining what paper cut illustrations really are and introduce you guys with Eiko’s work, let’s have a look at Eiko Ojala as an illustrator first. So, he is an Estonian artist who was born in 1982 in Tallinn. He has studied interior design and it was prior to when he brought himself to the world of creating illustrations (read: stunning). Eiko knows how to create amazing digital paper cut illustrations by combining them with his traditional techniques and making sure that his work speaks volumes.

We would also like to share this here that Eiko has been working with The New York Times, the Harvard Business Review, the Weird Magazine and has also been associated with the V&A Museum. Oh, and just by the way the master of creating paper cut illustrations has also won a Young Illustrators award in 2013 and an ADC Young Gun award by the Art Directors Club.

Isn’t it just great that all the artists around the world stun us with their creativity, imagination and work on a daily basis and we share that here on our blog because we want to inspire you guys and to encourage you too so that you can also get into the field and see if that is working for you.

As far as the paper cut illustrations are concerned, we believe that, this technique requires a lot of time, efforts and patience especially when you are creating your illustrations on digital mediums. There are a number of layers involved in order to recreate the original idea by adding depth and meaning to the illustrations.

Now, we know that different artists have different tricks to work on what they love to create but about Eiko’s illustrations, one thing is for final that you will require a great deal of time to tell if the illustrations were made using paper or did Eiko created them using his digital editing skills. Yes, you read that right. That is how clean and real his illustrations are that you cannot differentiate between a paper one and a digital one.

You must be wondering that only a few artists could create paper cut illustrations as this requires time, skills and a lot more than that but believe us when we say this, that nothing is impossible or too difficult if we really want to do it for ourselves and once you find your peace and happiness in the things that you do and create then there is no going back. It becomes interesting, it becomes fun and you want to improve yourself in order to get to the bigger goal and that is how it should be.

We can bet that even Eiko must have created illustrations which he would not have considered anything, he must have also discarded a few of his creations here and a few of them there because well, we judge ourselves more than others do and while we are evaluating our work and thought process, we tend to exclude most of the stuff because we want perfection.

What we are trying to say here is that if you think that you have it in you to try out a new skill in 2020 then make it more about paper cut illustrations – both with actual paper as well as on digital platforms like Illustrator. In this way, you will be able to know if you can do it or not and although we know that you are going to ace it, we would also want to say that go easy on yourself and also be patient if you fail because that is going to help you in the longer run.

Coming back to Eiko’s illustrations, we love each one of them and we are sharing them in our blog as well but let’s take a cursory glance too before we leave you with the magical illustrations for you to look at in detail. The first one is the Nokia 5G one in which you can see the number and the alphabet and there is world in these two elements. Vehicles, humans, trees and birds as well as the scenery is making this illustration that has a story to tell.

Moving on, you can see multiple shapes and backgrounds on which Eiko has used his imagination to create illustrations that are significant and interesting to look at. And from building and monuments to human beings and their cars, trees, birds and clouds – we think that looking at these mind blowing illustrations is a treat for the eyes. So, feel free to share the blog with your friends and family members too and we are sure they are going to like it too.

Pouring a Thermos of Hot Tea at -40°C Near the Arctic Circle

DECEMBER 21, 2015  CHRISTOPHER JOBSON

ice-1

Ontario-based photographer Michael Davies timed this impressive shot of his friend Markus hurling a thermos of hot tea through the air yesterday in -40°C weather. At such frigid temperatures water freezes instantly to form a dramatic plume of ice. For the last decade Davies has worked as a photographer in the fly-in community of Pangnirtung in Canada’s High Arctic, only 20km south of the Arctic Circle, a place that sees about two hours of sunlight each day during the winter. He shares via email that almost nothing was left to chance in creating the photo, as so many things had to be perfectly timed:

Around 1pm I jumped on my skidoo along with my friend Markus and we drove 45 minutes to the top of a nearby mountain where the light (which is almost always pink near the solstice) would hit the hills. Prepared with multiple thermoses filled with tea, we began tossing the water and shooting. Nothing of this shot was to chance, I followed the temperature, watched for calm wind, and planned the shot and set it up. Even the sun in the middle of the spray was something I was hoping for, even though it’s impossible to control.

You can see more of Davies’ most recent photography over on Flickr.

Underwater Footage Captures a Blanket Octopus Revealing Her Billowing Iridescent Membrane

FEBRUARY 24, 2020  GRACE EBERT

In a short clip captured during a blackwater night dive in the Lembeh Straita blanket octopus unfolds and displays a colorful web multiple times her original size. The aquatic animal’s iridescent body and

tentacles glow against the nighttime water before she releases her translucent blanket that connects her dorsal and dorsolateral arms. Only adult females are equipped with the lengthy membrane that reaches as long as six feet and dwarfs male octopi, which are less than an inch in size and most often die immediately after mating. Generally, the females only unfurl their color-changing blankets to appear larger and more intimidating to potential predators. Shared by NAD Lembeh Resort, the underwater video was taken on a RED Gemini with a 50 millimeter Zeiss Macro lens.

Learning how to reverse an overdose nytimes.com Morning Briefing Monday, February 24, 2020, by Chris Stanford
Mike Belleme for The New York Times Carter County, Tenn., is one of many American communities hit hard by the opioid crisis. In an effort to save lives, county health officials have embraced a practical — if radical — strategy: teaching children as young as 6 how to reverse an overdose, using a nasal spray called Narcan. Above, after a training session at a library, each child received a blue bag containing two doses of Narcan to take home.
But in a socially conservative region, where addiction is often seen as a sin, health workers have encountered strong opposition to the training.

Finland Solves Its Homelessness by Providing Apartments for Anyone Who Needs One

By Emma Taggart on February 14, 2020

Housing First Finland Solves Homelessness

Stock Photos from Followtheflow/Shutterstock

Homelessness is a problem all over the world, but Finland is leading the way with an initiative that could provide a long-term solution. In 2008, the Northern European nation introduced the “Housing First” policy. The concept is simple: everyone is entitled to a small apartment, even those with mental health and financial issues. Since then, the number of homeless people has fallen drastically, and continues to decline.

Like most cities, Finland previously provided short-term shelters for the homeless, but found that the quick fix didn’t help people to get back on their feet permanently and build a stable life. Affordable rental housing providers such as Y-Foundation began renovating old flats, and the NGO even turned former emergency shelters into apartments in order to offer long-term housing. “It was clear to everyone that the old system wasn’t working; we needed radical change,” says Juha Kaakinen, CEO of Y-Foundation. “We had to get rid of the night shelters and short-term hostels we still had back then. They had a very long history in Finland, and everyone could see they were not getting people out of homelessness. We decided to reverse the assumptions.”

In the last 10 years, the Housing First initiative provided 4,600 homes in Finland, making it the only country in Europe where homelessness is on the decline. Not only does the country now provide shelter to anyone that needs it, but the government also helps support people to integrate into their community. Social workers are available for counseling and to help people apply for social benefits. The extra support helps encourage people to find a job and become financially independent, as well as to take care of their physical and mental health.

FAST: The World’s Largest Telescope | A China Icons Video

Sep 25, 2016  China Icons

What’s really out there? In September 2016, China unveiled the world’s largest telescope – an instrument engineered so finely it is 3 times more sensitive than Arecibo and may help in the international search for understanding more on the origin of the universe and the Big Bang. Sadly, since filming this video, FAST’s chief engineer and scientist, Professor Nan Rendong lost his fight with cancer. Not only was Professor Nan a talented and well-respected scientist who dedicated over 20 years to the FAST project, but we found him to be a kind, intelligent and dedicated man who took the time to explain his work and the importance of it to us. The Five-Hundred-Metre Aperture Spherical Telescope, known as FAST had been constructed over five years in a remote area of Guizhou province, south central China. It was built in a 45 million year old crater, unlikely to be affected by flooding and far from human interference. The 500m dish surpasses Arecibo radio telescope, built in Puerto Rico in 1963, as the world’s largest and is three times more sensitive in detecting radio waves thousands of light years away. FAST consists of 4450 individual panels and Chinese project engineers had to design a cable net of ten thousand cables to manipulate it to detect signals. FAST’s focus cabin is also unique thanks to a directional tracking system. A key mission for the telescope will be detecting pulsars, the matter that remains when a star eight times the size of the sun explodes. These pulsars rotate thousands of times per second and are the universe’s most accurate clock. Experience the construction and meet the creators of FAST: The World’s Largest Telescope.

To Scale: Go See This Eclipse

Aug 14, 2017   To Scale:

On August 21st, 2017, the United States will host its first total solar eclipse in nearly forty years. While a partial eclipse will be visible throughout the continental US, only a thin strip across fourteen states will experience what is regarded as the most astounding celestial event one can witness: a total solar eclipse. This film is about why you should do everything you can to go see it. “Seeing a partial eclipse bears the same relation to seeing a total eclipse as kissing a man does to marrying him, or as flying in an airplane does to falling out of an airplane.” — Annie Dillard

Go See This Eclipse: A Scaled Simulation by Alex Gorosh

AUGUST 15, 2017  CHRISTOPHER JOBSON

In this new short film, director Alex Gorosh walks us through next week’s total solar eclipse and explains why it’s so important to see it. The mix of archival footage, scientific explanation, and a brief outdoor simulation to demonstrate scale similar to his 2015 video about the solar system, all make a compelling emotional argument that this eclipse shouldn’t be missed. Just make sure you’re prepared.

Composite Image of the Moon Taken from 47 Photos Reveals Solar Corona During a Total Solar Eclipse

Shot by Czech photographer Miloslav Druckmüller from the Brno University of Technology, these amazing composite images capture the moon during a total solar eclipse revealing a vast solar corona. To achieve the crystal clear effect the shots are comprised from some 40+ photos taken with two different lenses. Additional clarity was achieved due to the incredibly remote location chosen to view the eclipse from, a pier just outside the Enewetak Radiological Observatory on the Marshall Islands, smack dab in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. You can see several more images from the project at Druckmüller’s website and don’t miss this much higher resolution version including some 209 stars. All images courtesy the photographer.

The Movement of Air: A New Dance Performance Incorporating Interactive Digital Projection from Adrien M & Claire B

NOVEMBER 11, 2015  CHRISTOPHER JOBSON

Artist duo Adrien M & Claire B have lifted the curtain on their latest acrobatic dance performance utilizing digital projection titled The Movement of Air. Seen in this video is a handful of moments taken from an hour-long piece performed in France last month by a trio dancers. Unlike more common uses of digital project mapping where a recorded animation or scene is projected in a space, Adrien M & Claire B instead utilize fully interactive “scenes” that respond to human interaction. Nothing you see on the set is animated beforehand.

“This ‘living light’ is produced by video projectors and generated in real time by a set of algorithms,” Adrien shares with us. “It is a mix of control room operated human interventions and onstage data sensors that outlines a precise writing of motions and generative behaviors. Thus, the images are never pre-recorded for a rigid show on an imposed rhythm: on the contrary, they breathe and move with the dancers and organize a new space for them to explore.”

The overall effect is dizzying, and in many ways enhances the dancer’s work instead of looking like a gimmick added as an afterthought. A great marriage of physical performance and digital special effects. You can watch several earlier interactive creations by Adrien & Claire here on Colossal including Pixel and Kinetic Sand.

“The movement of the air” is a frontal spectacle for three dancers evolving according to a choreographic score in an immersive environment made up of projected images, generated and animated live.
The purpose of the show is to give body to the imperceptible: to make visible the invisible of a movement of air, in its trajectories with infinite nuances, imaginary varying from the most gentle and slow, to the most lively and transparent, from the most powerful at the most subtle. A journey between the dream of flight and the anxiety of falling.
A suspension device allows the bodies to get rid of their weight.
The original music is performed live on stage.

Avocado – a positive superfood trend? | DW Documentary

May 1, 2018  DW Documentary

From avocado toast to guacamole, this superfood has stolen the hearts of foodies and the health conscious around the world. But where do avocados come from? Avocados have become a huge food trend in the Western world, where the creamy fruit has become readily available in shops, cafes and restaurants. The avocado is considered a superfood and is popular in Europe because of its nutritional value. Avocados are high in calories, contain mostly monounsaturated fat and are good for cholesterol. The fruit is full of essential nutrients, including potassium and vitamin C. But there’s a darker side to the fashionable fruit popular on toast or in salads. In Chile, one of the world’s largest suppliers, avocado cultivation has dramatic consequences and has been linked to water shortages, human rights violations and an environmentally damage. The province of Petorca has a long tradition of avocado farming. Once grown by small farmers, production has been soaring since the global avocado boom of the 1990s. Big landowners now dominate the avocado market there. And their business requires large amounts of water. It takes up to 1000 liters of water to grow one kilo of the fruit (about three avocados) – a lot more than for a kilo of tomatoes or potatoes. The region is suffering an acute water shortage, exacerbated by climate change. The riverbeds dried up years ago. Trucks bring tanks of water to families in need, while thousands of hectares of avocado groves just next door are watered with artificial reservoirs. Rodrigo Mundaca founded the NGO Modatima. He fights for the right to water – a right that’s guaranteed by the UN and that Chile has committed to. An aerial survey in 2012 revealed that 64 pipelines were diverting river water underground, apparently to irrigate the avocado fields. When the Modatima activists publicly voiced their criticism, they received death threats. Water became a commodity in Chile in 1981 under the Pinochet dictatorship, meaning it’s privatized. Those who offer the most money get water licenses, even for life, regardless of the potential consequences for the ecosystem. The avocado also has a pretty dire environmental footprint. They’re packaged to prevent damage and transported in air-conditioned cargo ships to Europe. The fruit then ripens in a factory in Rotterdam, before it’s sent “ready to eat” to German supermarkets. “Europe wants to eat healthily – at our expense,” says Mundaca. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

Colorful Solo Show Titled “Peace” by Eduardo Kobra

By Katie Hosmer on May 7, 2014


It’s not difficult to identify a mural that has been completed by Eduardo Kobra. The Sao Paulo-based street artist has a signature approach filled with vibrant colors and geometric shapes that merge together to form the portraits of many very prominent figures. He uses a combination of painting, airbrush, and spray paint to produce the enormous works filled with a lively spirit.

His most recent large-scale work will be featured as a solo show, entitled Peace, beginning on May 9, 2014 through June 25, 2014 at Rome’s Dorothy Circus Gallery. The selected portraits will feature people like Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, Albert Einstein, and the Dalai Lama.

Through his signature style of textured layers, strong lines, and fragmented sections, Kobra gives new life to these very important historical figures and topics which, according to the gallery, include “the fight against pollution, global warming, deforestation, and war, but also the ‘makeover’ of some icons of the time.”

Scientists Discover the First Biofluorescent Reptile, a ‘Glowing’ Hawksbill Sea Turtle

September 28, 2015  Christopher Jobson

No, this isn’t a clip from the latest Miyazaki anime, this is the first sighting of a real fluorescent turtle. Marine biologist David Gruber of City University of New York, was recently in the Solomon Islands to film a variety of biofluorescent fish and coral, when suddenly a completely unexpected sight burst into the frame: a glowing yellow and red sea turtle. The creature is a critically endangered hawksbill sea turtle, and until this sighting last July, the phenomenon had never been documented in turtles, let alone any other reptile.

Biofluorescence is the ability for an organism to reflect blue light and re-emit it as a different color, not to be confused with bioluminescence, where organisms produce their own light.

Many undersea creatures like coral, sharks, and some shrimp have shown the ability to show single green, red, or orange colors under the right lighting conditions, but according to National Geographic, no organisms have shown the ability to emit two distinct colors like the hawksbill. As seen in the video, the coloring appears not only in mottled patterns on the turtle’s shell, but even extends within the cracks of its head and feet. Gruber mentions this could be a mixture of both glowing red glowing algae attached to the turtle, but the yellow fluorescence is undoubtedly part of the animal.

Watch the video above to see the moment of discovery and learn more on Nat Geo.

EXCLUSIVE: “Glowing” Sea Turtle Discovered | National Geographic

Sep 28, 2015  National Geographic

While filming coral off the Solomon Islands, David Gruber, a National Geographic Emerging Explorer, encountered a “bright red-and-green spaceship.” This underwater UFO turned out to be a hawksbill sea turtle, which is significant because it’s the first time that biofluorescence has ever been seen in reptiles, according to Gruber. Gruber is now excited to learn more about this critically endangered species and how it is using biofluorescence. ?

Vaping nearly killed me, says British teenager

By James Gallagher Health and science correspondent

Image copyright Ewan Fisher

A teenage boy nearly died after vaping caused a catastrophic reaction in his lungs, doctors in Nottingham say.

Ewan Fisher was connected to an artificial lung to keep him alive after his own lungs failed and he could not breathe.

Ewan told BBC News e-cigarettes had “basically ruined me” and urged other young people not to vape.

His doctors say vaping is “not safe”, although health bodies in the UK say it is 95% safer than tobacco.

Listen: Beyond Today – Can vaping kill you?

What happened?

Ewan started vaping in early 2017. He was 16 at the time and wanted to quit smoking to improve his boxing.

Despite being under age, he said, “it was easy” to buy either cigarettes or e-cigarettes.

In May that year, Ewan was finding it harder and harder to breathe.

His mother took Ewan to accident and emergency on the night before his GCSE exams, because he was coughing and choking in his sleep.

His lungs were failing and he very quickly ended up on life-support in intensive care in Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham.

“I thought I was going to die,” Ewan told BBC News.

Ewan was getting worse. Even ventilation could not get enough oxygen into his body and his life was in the balance.

Image copyright Ewan Fisher Image caption Ewan was attached to an ECMO machine to keep him alive

He was taken to Leicester and attached to an artificial lung or ECMO (extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation) machine.

“This machine saved my life,” he said.

Large tubes took blood out of Ewan, removed the carbon dioxide, added oxygen and pumped the blood back into his body.

“He had very serious respiratory failure, he had to go to ECMO and that is a very big deal,” Dr Jayesh Bhatt, a consultant at Nottingham University Hospitals, told BBC News.

“He got as ill as anyone can get.”

The case – from May 2017 – has just come to light in the journal Archives of Disease in Childhood.

How is Ewan now?

Ewan, who is 19 on Tuesday, had a long recovery. It was six months before he was properly up and, on his feet, again.

“I’m still not back to normal, I’d say 75-80%, it’s in the last six months that I’m feeling a bit stronger in myself,” he said.

“Vaping has basically ruined me, I try to tell everyone and they think I’m being stupid, I tell my mates and they don’t listen.

“They still do it, they all still vape, but they’ve seen what I’ve been through.

“Is it worth risking your life for smoking e-cigs?

“I don’t want you to end up like me and I don’t want you to be dead, I wouldn’t wish [that] on anyone.”

Ewan also fears being around other vapers – everywhere from the pub to High Street – could damage his lungs again.

Striking Winners of the 2019 Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition Show the Artistry of Science

By Jessica Stewart on October 23, 2019

Fluorescent turtle embryo. Teresa Zgoda & Teresa Kugler (Campbell Hall, New York, USA). First Place. Stereomicroscopy, Fluorescence. 5x (Objective Lens Magnification).

For forty-five years, the Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition has celebrated the microscopic world and, in the process, allowed scientists and enthusiasts to show off the artistry of scientific imagery. Passionate micro-photographers from nearly 100 countries submitted over 2000 stunning pieces of microphotography to the competition. In the end, the expert judging panel narrowed the field to the top 20 images with a photo of a turtle embryo taking the top prize.

The colorful image, taken by microscopy technician Teresa Zgoda and recent university graduate Teresa Kugler, is the result of painstaking work done with precision and skill. Extensive image-stitching was necessary to create the final photograph, as the size and thickness of the turtle embryo meant that only a small portion of the turtle could be photographed at one time. By stacking and stitching together hundreds of photographs, the duo was able to create an image that is both scientifically and artistically satisfying.

“Microscopy lets us zoom in on the smallest organisms and building blocks that comprise our world–giving us a profound appreciation for the small things in life that far too often go unnoticed,” shared Kugler, “It allows me to do science with a purpose.”

The turtle wasn’t the only embryo in the winning selection. Reproduction was a topic for many photographers. An alligator and a California two-spot octopus embryo, as well as a pregnant planktonic crustacean and mosquito larva also joined the top twenty. Away from the animal kingdom, something as simple as a frozen drop of water was transformed into a mesmerizing, abstract photograph. At the same time, a close view of different flora helps us marvel at the beauty and precision of how nature develops.

Whether using focus stacking, image stacking, or confocal microscopy, the techniques employed help these scientists bring their vision to life. And as technology continues to grow and evolve, we can only expect even richer results. Take a look at the rest of the top 20 photos from the 2019 Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition below and view more finalists via their online gallery.
