Medical. The Legendary Jens Risom Shows Off His Hidden Prefab Beach Home. Most of us know Jens Risom as the Danish furniture designer who, at the tender age of 26, cofounded Knoll Furniture Company with the titular Hans.
From his perch at Knoll--and later from his own firm, JRD--Risom popularized midcentury modern design in America (his chairs sat in the Oval Office for a time in the 1960s). Risom’s legacy as a furniture designer has blossomed over the past decade, thanks in part to shelter magazines like Dwell, which has single-handedly rekindled popular interest in midcentury design. But in the magazine’s November issue, Amanda Dameron features Risom in a lesser-known role: the architect. In 1965, Risom designed a modular home on Block Island, a largely seasonal beach town a ferry ride away from Narragansett, Rhode Island. Soggy Bottom Boys- I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow. Motherboard. Dogon people.
The Dogon are an ethnic group living in the central plateau region of the country of Mali, in Western Africa, south of the Niger bend, near the city of Bandiagara, in the Mopti region.
The population numbers between 400,000 and 800,000. The Dogon are best known for their religious traditions, their mask dances, wooden sculpture and their architecture. The past century has seen significant changes in the social organization, material culture and beliefs of the Dogon, partly because Dogon country is one of Mali's major tourist attractions. A Dogon hunter Geography and history The Bandiagara Cliffs The principal Dogon area is bisected by the Bandiagara Escarpment, a sandstone cliff of up to 500m (1,640 ft) high, stretching about 150 km (90 miles).

The Propaganda Posters of the 1% Banks and governments own all the money and power thus controlling society and they will do absolutely anything to keep it that way, To top it off we are now paying off there huge debt again, as planned -not a mistake.
To be honest I have very little hope for society especially when people are trying to do something about this whether it the right way or not but still trying, only to be met with total denial from all sides. As history has has told us, people only do something when its all or nearly too late and we are close to that point and even have an opportunity that will soon be gone. I consider the polar bear already extinct and in some ways I don’t think people even deserve the polar bear.
Anyone that claims to feel bad about it when the bear is truly gone can stick it, because we had our chance but we have already decided financial gain for people who already have most the money is the best option.
