On a recent afternoon during New York Fashion Week, between shows and presentations, models, photographers, designers, and stylists took a break to to come together at Chelsea's Milk Studios. The reason was simple. At the urging of W magazine, they had all gathered to make a united and defiant statement on video, and one by one they faced the camera and said: “I am an immigrant.” In the aftermath of President Donald J. Trump’s now legally-challenged refugee ban, there’s been an outrage from all corners of the world towards the White House’s apparent anti-immigration policies. Fashion people aren’t as insulated as they might seem; they’ve been equally appalled by the rhetoric stemming from Washington, perhaps because so many members of this colorful community are immigrants themselves, certainly friends, partners, collaborators, admirers of immigrant artists and designers. https://youtu.be/GE0Qx_P0BwU
In a corner of the studio, W’s creative and fashion director, Edward Enninful, who was born in Ghana and raised in the United Kingdom, held court as designer Joseph Altuzarra, a native Frenchman, arrived on set with a three-month-old puppy for moral support. Diane von Furstenberg, the Belgian-American designer who was a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign, stepped in front of the camera, ad-libbing: “I thought I’d say, ‘I am an immigrant and proud to be,’” she said. Then, she thought of a couplet: “I am an immigrant and America’s been good to me.”

This feature-length documentary explores the first religion of China that existed before Daoism, Confucianism and Buddhism. The Altar of Heaven complex in Beijing, also known as Tian Tan, is the third most visited tourist site in China. Yet, very few in China understand that it was the place where the Emperor sacrificed and interceded for his people with the Supreme God who created all things. This most-high God is known as Shang Di, and Chinese history tells us that the imperial sacrifices to Shang Di go all the way back to the third millennium BCE. Can it be that the supreme God of China, who was worshiped by the Chinese people throughout most of their history, is the same Creator God of Judaism and of Christianity? https://youtu.be/WCG8yrJskRk
http://politolog.net Ученые из экспедиции Национального управления океанических и атмосферных исследований США запустили прямую трансляцию со дна Марианской впадины, которая является самой глубокой впадиной в мировом океане.
Видеотрансляция ведется в режиме онлайн с трех камер, одна из которых установлена на мачте судна Okeanos Explorer, другая – в передвижной лаборатории, а третья – на самом дне, на глубине 11 км.
Трансляцию комментируют ученые. Она доступна бесплатно на YouTube и на сайте ведомства. Экспедиция продлится до 10 июля.
DC presents Robbie “Maddo” Maddison’s “Pipe Dream,” giving the world a chance to witness history being made as Maddo rides his dirt bike on the powerful and iconic waves of Tahiti. From his helmet to motocross boots, Maddo was dressed for FMX when he took his dirt bike into the unchartered saltwater terrain of the Pacific Ocean in French Polynesia.
For nearly two years Robbie has been focused on making surfing on his motorbike a reality. His efforts paid off in Tahiti, where he rode the world famous waves at Teahupoo and Papara. https://youtu.be/lDi9uFcD7XI
Slow Life from Daniel Stoupin PLUS 7 months ago ALL AUDIENCES "Slow" marine animals show their secret life under high magnification. Corals and sponges are very mobile creatures, but their motion is only detectable at different time scales compared to ours and requires time lapses to be seen. These animals build coral reefs and play crucial roles in the biosphere, yet we know almost nothing about their daily lives. Learn more about what you see in my post: notes-from-dreamworlds.blogspot.com.au/2014/03/slow-life.html EDIT - answer to a common question: yes, colors are real, no digital enhancement, just white balance correction with curves. When photographers use white light on corals, they simply miss the vast majority of colors. Read more in my blog. This clip, as well as stock footage, is available in 4k resolution. Make sure you watch it on a large screen! You won't be able to appreciate this clip or see individual cells moving in a sponge on a smartphone. If you have a full-HD screen, when you enter full-screen mode, please press on "view actual size" next to the HD icon to improve sharpness. To make this little clip I took 150000 shots. Why so many? Because macro photography involves shallow depth of field. To extend it, I used focus stacking. Each frame of the video is actually a stack that consists of 3-12 shots where in-focus areas are merged. Just the intro and last scene are regular real-time footage. One frame required about 10 minutes of processing time (raw conversion + stacking). Unfortunately, the success rate was very low due to copious technical challenges and I spent almost 9 long months just to learn how to make these kinds of videos and understand how to work with these delicate creatures. I am glad that I abandoned the idea of making this clip in 3D (with two cameras) - very few people have 3D screens and it doubles processing time. ( Технические средства )
In 1997, the longtime British colony of Hong Kong was handed over to China with the understanding that it would retain relative autonomy under the concept of "one country, two systems." But last month, as part of the so-called Umbrella Revolution, Hong Kongers began vocally demanding Beijing stay out of their political affairs and grant the democracy they say they were promised with the handover.
VICE News traveled to Hong Kong and embedded with the students leading the pro-democracy movement. As protestors marched through and occupied city parks and streets, police fired tear gas and became physically violent. Hong Kong, long a reliably stable world financial center, was being rocked by unrest.
Феерическое видео построения активистов Сути Времени.
Суть Времени - это организация Сергея Кургиняна. Они сегодня завезли мешки курток красных, и раздавали их всем :) Пенсионеры из различных ветеранских организаций приоделись, и приняли участие в шествии в меру своего понимания ситуации, но оказались не ко двору.
Баяниста со товарищи отогнали вот в эту общую колонну
