" 150 Street Artists From 30 Countries Turn Old Tunisian Village Into Outdoor Art Gallery.
Er-Riadh, a small village off of the beaten tourist path on the island of Djerba in Tunisia, was paid a visit by an unlikely bunch of guests – 150 street artists from 30 countries around the world.

Bristol Byzantine is a variety of Byzantine Revival architecture that was popular in the city of Bristol from about 1850 to 1880.
Many buildings in the style have been destroyed or demolished, but notable surviving examples include the Colston Hall, the Granary on Welsh Back, the Carriage Works, on Stokes Croft and several of the buildings around Victoria Street. Several of the warehouses around the harbour have survived including the Arnolfini which now houses an art gallery. Clarks Wood Company warehouse and the St Vincent's Works in Silverthorne Lane and the Wool Hall in St Thomas Street are other survivors from the 19th century.

Scientists at The University of Manchester have for the first time uncovered how brain cells or 'neurons' that keep us alert become turned off after we eat. The findings - published in the scientific journal Neuron this week - have implications for treating obesity and eating disorders as well as understanding levels of consciousness. "It has been known for a while that people and animals can become sleepy and less active after a meal, but brain signals responsible for this were poorly understood," said Dr Denis Burdakov, the lead researcher based in Manchester's Faculty of Life Sciences. 30 Jaw-Dropping Pieces Of Bristol Street Art. 30 Pieces Of Street Art That Cleverly Interact With Nature - Bored Panda.
