Riusuke Fukahori Paints Three-Dimensional Goldfish Embedded in Layers of Resin First: watch the video. Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori paints three-dimensional goldfish using a complex process of poured resin. The fish are painted meticulously, layer by layer, the sandwiched slices revealing slightly more about each creature, similar to the function of a 3D printer. I really enjoy the rich depth of the pieces and the optical illusion aspect, it’s such an odd process that results in something that’s both a painting and sculptural. Wonderful.

Playful three are best friends | Animalfwd By DAILY MAIL REPORTER Rare sighting: An endangered De Brazza's monkey plays with one of the two Jack Russell Terriers at Barnley's Guesthouse in Kitale, Kenya It was a moment of horror for wildlife photographers Vicki and Adam Scott Kennedy as they witnessed a rare De Brazza's monkey being 'attacked' by two Jack Russell terriers in Kenya. But that horror soon turned to joy as they realised that, in fact, the animals were only playing and the couple were witnessing a unique spectacle. For no sooner had the two dogs released the monkey from their grip, than the monkey turned the tables and chased them around the gardens of Barnley's Guesthouse near Kitale in northwest Kenya. Surprise: The Kennedys had heard that a lone De Brazza's Monkey, an endangered species in Kenya, had been seen occasionally in and around the gardens of the guesthouse A tennis ball seemed to be the hub of the commotion and the monkey was seen stealing it from the dogs and running away with it. source: dailymail

Watch TV Shows and Series Online for Free! Who Lived in Your House in 1940? Here’s a splendid diversion if you’re a data nerd, a history buff, or even just like good detective work: Tell the story of the family that lived in your house in 1940. A bit more background. If you are in the United States, you probably remember participating in the Decennial Census in 2010. These forms are kept confidential for 72 years—roughly an average American’s life span. My friend Sue Dynarski alerted me to all this, and issued the 1940 Census Challenge. It took me a while, but I found my house. The three families provide an interesting snapshot of Depression-era Philadelphia. First, the Chisom’s, who had moved to Philadelphia from Blackville, South Carolina. Second, were Paul and Lillian Evans (age 33 and 32), who were also from Blackville. Third, Samuel and Lullu Rose (aged 39 and 37) were somewhat more educated, as they had completed the seventh and fourth grades, respectively. Take a look through the archives for yourself.
