French non -Farmers Pose for 2017 Calendar. Last year, the holiday season was set ablaze by France’s Pompiers Sans Frontières (Firefighters Without Borders) and their sizzling, stripped-down calendar.

French non -Farmers Pose for 2017 Calendar

Shot for a good cause by renowned Paris-based fashion photographer Fred Goudon, the risqué calendar proved to be a popular Christmas gift—both in France and abroad. In keeping with tradition, Goudon has photographed a new crop of au naturel pin-up models for his 2017 edition: French farmers. Showcasing alluring agriculturists from the countrysides of Champagne, Normandy, Picardie, and Provence, the calendar features shots of shirtless (and overall-less) farmers in their natural, hay-filled habitats. Some are photographed solo, while others pose with piglets, cows, and other barnyard friends.

— Uniquely Charming Cat Caves by FeltField Handmade... Charles Freger - Journal. The most fascinating images from the New York Public Library’s release of 180,000 copyright-free materials. Copyright law is a thorny thing, and it prevents a lot of people from making new works and having fun. But every once in a while, enough time passes, a lawsuit changes the game, or a big, old institution opens up and dusts off once-restricted or hidden material and lets it out into the public domain.

The New York Public Library joins the restriction-free party this week by making 180,000 non-copyright images from its collection available for high-res download. It’s also giving access to its collections’ metadata and making updates to its API to encourage playful games and visualizations. Its trove of old stereoscopic images make great gifs, which you can try for yourself: NYPL Labs, the library’s digitization and innovation arm, is the team behind these experiments.

The Lord of The Rings artworks. A Wall That Plays Music When It Rains. Nature Blows My Mind! The Flamboyant Sea Slug. Nicoboxethai/CC BY 2.0 Nudibranch, or what we usually call sea slugs, blow my mind. Ever since spotting one for myself during a tide pool trip about a year ago, I've been fascinated with these creatures. I think of them as the drag queens of the sea: flashy stand-outs that are always dressed to the nines.

The one I found is a Hermissenda crassicornis -- the flashy little thing pictured below with bright pinkish-orange cerata waving like a feather boa and neon blue outlines around its tentacles. © Jaymi Heimbuch. Nudibranch looks like a bunny of the sea. It’s round, and fluffy and has wiggly little ears! Sort of. These little sea creatures, affectionately dubbed “sea bunnies” have recently become social media celebrities. They’re actually sea slugs, and belong to the wild group of mollusks called nudibranchs. The bunny slug species is Jorunna parva, and was first described by the renowned Japanese marine biologist Kikutaro Baba.

The fluffy white sea bunnies are primarily found off the coast of Japan. How Long Does a Queen Last? Hokkaido: Animals. Fox Village In Japan Is Probably The Cutest Place On Earth.

Photos: Amazed southern Chinese experience first snowfall ever, make teeny-tiny snowmen. Just as the US’s eastern coast was hit by a historical blizzard over the weekend, China suffered its coldest weather in decades. On Sunday (Jan. 24) morning, 25 cities across the country registered record low temperatures.

The chill swept across the country last week, but is lifting today (Jan. 25), according to the National Meteorological Center (link in Chinese): The cold wave brought plenty of excitement for southern Chinese citizens, many of whom have never seen sleet—needless to say snow—in their lives. Southern Chinese cities including Chongqing, the “Flower City” of Guangzhou, and the so-called “Green City” of Nanning saw snow mixed with rain over the weekend for the first time in decades. Residents in downtown Guangzhou were particularly amazed, because the city’s sleet on Sunday was the first since 1949 (link in Chinese), when China started keeping meteorologic records.
