18 Breathtaking Action Shots Taken with a GoPro Camera Ever had a problem capturing action shots with your camera? Not if you’re using GoPro. This company makes small, wearable, waterproof and shockproof cameras. Beloved by professional skiers, cyclists, skydivers and surfers it also suits the needs of everyday people because it’s affordable and easy to use. Nick Woodman, the founder of GoPro, said he was inspired to start the company after his surfing trip to Australia in which he was hoping to capture quality action photos of his surfing, but couldn’t, because amateur photographers could not get close enough, or obtain quality equipment at accessible prices.

2012: a bloody good year for extreme sports – Whitelines Snowboarding 2012 has been a pretty remarkable year for extreme sports and on top of the ‘lympics, a damn good one for sport in general at that. This ‘People are Awesome‘ style compilation picks out some of the key extreme sports achievements and events of the past year and we think it does a pretty stellar job of summing everything up. On the snowboarding front they’ve included 16 year old Yuki Kadono’s backside triple cork 1440 at the Beijing Air and Style and Travis Rice winning the Red Bull Supernatural. Good to see that they haven’t overlooked Tom Schaar’s first ever 1080 on a skateboard or Trevor Jacob’s first ever double cork/backflip either. Perhaps even more remarkable are some of the things that we somehow missed this year – we’re not quite sure how we failed to catch wind (excuse the pun) of Gary Connery’s parachute-less wingsuit landing. And let’s not forget that dude that practically dropped out of space, breaking world records and the sound barrier in the process.

Make The Move – Best Skydive and Base 2012 In theaters July 18th. Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis star in “Jupiter Ascending,” an original science fiction epic adventure from filmmakers Lana and Andy Wachowski. Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things.

Buttered Beere 1588 Recipe Small Goblets Of Buttered Beere From A 1588 Tudor Recipe This is an authentic Tudor Buttered Beere (Butter Beer) recipe from 1588 and a rich, creamy ale (beer) is called for – but don’t get an ale which is too sweet, as we are adding in sugar as well as egg yolks. The best ales (beer) to buy are traditional ‘real-ales’ (or cask conditioned ales) from a British brewery with a good reputation (see the end of the post for recommendations). Most British ales (traditional beer) of this high quality are now exported world-wide – while more modern beers, such as ‘lager’ are not recommended. This Tudor recipe for Buttered Beere is the oldest recorded instance of Butter Beer and it is authentically drunk warm, which is an acquired taste; but it is well worth trying. Recipe Ingredients:

The Epic & The Beasts When we were kids we never dreamt of being a firemen, a pilot or superhero. We always wanted to be skateboarders, jumping up curbs, down the stairs and filp our boards as many times as we could. This has not changed until today.
