Student Captures What Happens When People Are Told They Are Beautiful How would you react if someone told you that you’re beautiful? 18-year-old Shea Glover, a highschool student from Chicago, conducted a social experiment to find out. She posed people in front of her camera and then told them “I’m taking pictures of things I find beautiful.” Photographer Tracks Down People He Shot in the Street 40 Years Ago to Recreate Their Pictures Back in the 1970s and 1980s, paramedic and part time photographer Chris Porsz spent all of his free time walking around the streets of Peterborough, England, taking photos of passersby. 40 years later, Chris tracked down the subjects of his photos all of those years ago, convincing them to strike the same pose for a “then” and “now” perspective. According to Chris, “I don’t think anyone else has tracked down so many strangers and recreated photos in this way before.” It took “tenacious detective work, meticulous planning and, often, unbelievable coincidences,” but the results are a fascinating look at how people have changed - or not changed -as the case may be.
How To Beat Carnival Games - Blifaloo Tips to win a knock-off stuffed animal or dusty 2LiveCrew vanity mirror next time you're counting mullets at the fair. Rope Ladder The trick to climbing carnival rope ladders is to completely ignore the "rungs" and only use the outside ropes to climb on. While applying equal pressure with your right foot and left arm, move your left foot and right arm uat the same time. Then do the same thing with the opposite limbs -- shimmying yourself up the ladder. Do not move both hands or both feet at the same time - you will lose your balance. Teaching Laws Murphy's teaching laws The clock in the instructor's room will be wrong. Disaster will occur when visitors are in the room. This Crazy New Instrument Uses 2000 Marbles To Make Music Ever looked at a marble and thought “Hey, I could make music with those things!” No? Well, me neither, but Martin Molin of Swedish band Wintergatan did, and we’re seriously glad about that, because what he’s invented is nothing short of genius. Taking two years to complete, The fantastically complex Wintergatan Marble Machine is comprised of 3000 internal parts and uses 2000 marbles to make music.
How To Export HD Video in Premiere Pro for YouTube and Vimeo I often receive questions about filming and editing, and have decided that I will post the answers to the most common questions here to help others. Expect more posts like these in the future and please let me know what questions you would like to have answered. Before digital cameras became popular, editing a video was as simple as cutting the actual film strip and splicing it to another film strip with tape. With the advent of digital video, there are literally hundreds of programs to use to edit and even more video formats. Choosing the proper export settings is one of the most important steps when editing video and it can be very confusing due to lack of a standard at this time.
Hajime Narukawa Wins Good Design Grand Award for World-Changing Map The Good Design Grand Award, arguably Japan’s most prestigious award for design, just went out to architect Hajime Narukawa’s completely groundbreaking design for a map of the world. His map, the AuthaGraph World Map, isn’t your average map of the globe: It’s a near-perfect representation of the continents and oceans as they exist on our spherical planet, all laid out on a two-dimensional surface. Maps are pretty darn complicated. We take it for granted that Antarctica is going to be smushed down at the bottom of the map and not shown in full; all the oceans are radically disfigured, but we’re used to seeing them that way. That style dates back to cartographer Gerardus Mercator’s paradigm-shifting map from 1569.
CSI Knowledge: How Bloodstain Pattern Analysis Works (Infographic) You know how it goes: Right before Horatio Caine puts on his sunglasses and throws off a corny one-liner as the The Who screams, the forensics team is looking at a blood splatter on the wall and determining that it was a gunshot wound from close range by a six-foot tall, left handed shooter who wore sandals and had a limp. READ MORE: Whisky, Buried in Antarctic Ice for 100 Years, is Finally Ready for You to Drink Far fetched? Maybe not. You’d be surprised at the amount of detail a simple blood spatter can reveal. The folks at Forensic Nursing have put together a guide to Blood Pattern Analysis for budding CSIs, so the next time you stumble across a crime scene you’ll be able to tell if the spatter is from a blunt force trauma with a baseball bat, or a wounded perp on the run.
The Most Badass Alphabet Ever Sometimes I find things on the internet that leave me speechless with their awesomeness. And considering it’s my job to find crazy stuff all day long, that’s actually saying something. But today I am bowing down to “The A-Z of Awesomeness,” a series of illustrations by Neill Cameron, where he takes each letter of the alphabet, crafts an absurd sentence around it, then brings it to life with an excellent drawing as you can see above. There are 25 more epic letters to go, and you must check them all out below: Teachers Are Terrific!: What's Going on in the Lab? Newton's Laws of Motion! We recently had a theme week with each grade level! Each explored a Law of Motion after reviewing all three. It was a fabulous week of STEM challenges and learning all about Newton (not related to Cam!) So, this is what we have been up to in our science class! Take a look!
About - Slow Dancing Slow Dancing is a series of 43 larger-than-life, hyper-slow-motion video portraits of dancers and choreographers from around the world, displayed on multiple screens. Each subject's movement (approximately 5 seconds long) was shot on a specially constructed set using a high-speed, high-definition camera recording at 1,000 frames per second (standard film captures 30 frames per second). The result is approximately 10 minutes of extreme slow motion.
