Rising Seas - Interactive: If All The Ice Melted Explore the world’s new coastlines if sea level rises 216 feet. The maps here show the world as it is now, with only one difference: All the ice on land has melted and drained into the sea, raising it 216 feet and creating new shorelines for our continents and inland seas. There are more than five million cubic miles of ice on Earth, and some scientists say it would take more than 5,000 years to melt it all. If we continue adding carbon to the atmosphere, we’ll very likely create an ice-free planet, with an average temperature of perhaps 80 degrees Fahrenheit instead of the current 58.

Eh bien, nous voici arrivé pour ainsi dire au bout du périple, quasi introspectif, de notre Harry Haller, dit le Loup des steppes. Nous le laissions donc quittant Maria, et se préparant pour le grand Bal Masqué de l’hôtel du Globe, où il doit être le cavalier de Hermine… Dans ce dernier billet de cette thema, il sera question, un peu, de Bal Masqué, de Pablo, saxophoniste et "maître de magie" et surtout de Théâtre Magique, où l’entrée coûte la raison… Lieu où l’on démultiplie l’Harry comme les pains dans la bible, mais aussi les portes aux enseignes les plus folles, ouvertures sur les délices de la perception… Merci le "champagne"… et les cigarettes jaunes au goût inconnu, dont la fumée était épaisse comme l’encens… sans oublier l’élixir… l’exagère, franchement, non, l’ami Harry?

100 Ideas That Changed Architecture by Maria Popova How the art and science of building evolved along the parallel axes of the philosophical and the pragmatic. “Art is a discovery and development of elementary principles of nature into beautiful forms suitable for human use,” legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright famously observed. 100 Ideas That Changed Architecture
“Our independence from Spanish domination did not put us beyond the reach of madness,” said Gabriel García Márquez in his 1982 Nobel Prize acceptance speech. García Márquez, who died yesterday at the age of 87, refers of course to all of Spain’s former colonies in Latin America and the Caribbean, from his own Colombia to Cuba, the island nation whose artistic struggle to come to terms with its history contributed so much to that art form generally known as “magical realism,” a syncretism of European modernism and indigenous art and folklore, Catholicism and the remnants of Amerindian and African religions.

Salvador Dalí Illustrates Alice in Wonderland, 1969

by Maria Popova What the Mad Hatter has to do with one of the most inspired collaborations in Western culture. Last week, we marveled at Leonard Weisgard’s stunning illustrations for the first color edition of Alice in Wonderland, circa 1949. But it turns out they might not be the most culturally intriguing. As reader Varvn Aryacetas points out on Twitter, exactly two decades later a collaboration of epic proportion took place as the Lewis Carroll classic was illustrated by none other than Salvador Dalí. (And let’s not forget what a soft spot I have for obscure children’s illustration by famous artists.)
