Animated stereoviews of old Japan
28 Oct 2009 In the late 19th and early 20th century, enigmatic photographer T. Enami (1859-1929) captured a number of 3D stereoviews depicting life in Meiji-period Japan. [Sumo wrestlers] A stereoview consists of a pair of nearly identical images that appear three-dimensional when viewed through a stereoscope, because each eye sees a slightly different image.

VIDEO. L'expo événement sur Neandertal ouvre au Musée de l'Homme Le diorama bleu vert luit doucement, passant des saisons chaudes aux saisons froides, un ours montre son museau, un loup hurle, un feu crépite dans la plaine. Pas de doute, cette animation aura un bel "effet immersif " et permettra au public de voir passer plus de 300.000 ans en accéléré. Marion Paquié, régisseuse des objets et son aide débarrassent un puissant bison empaillé de son voile de plastique… en faisant bien attention à ne pas piétiner les minuscules lemmings. Ici, un ouvrier fixe le socle d'un lagopède et d'un renard blancs… Plus on loin, on peint, on découpe, on dispose les objets en vitrine, dans des bruits de marteau et de scie. Nous sommes dans les coulisses de Neandertal l'expo, la prochaine grande exposition temporaire du Musée de l'Homme qui nous invitera, à partir du 28 mars 2018, à poser un œil neuf sur cet " autre ", ce cousin préhistorique disparu il y a 40.000 à 35.000 ans. Episode 1 : La mauvaise réputation Episode 2 : Un stratège… amateur de galettes

Lost Marvels of Revolution-Era Russian Theater Unfortunately, the photographs of the actors are all that remain of this 1908 premiere of Maeterlinck’s Blue Bird, produced by Stanislavsky. A descriptive play-by-play of the performance can be found in the 1920 book The Russian Theater Under the Revolution by Oliver Sayler (thanks, Google book search!), but all other images of this art noveau-inspired production have been lost to time, despite Sayler’s valiant attempts to preserve more for posterity, recounted in the book: I asked Stanislavsky eagerly for photographs of scenes from “The Blue Bird” or else for the original designs of the scenic artist so that I might have them copied… the photographs, I was told, were not available – except those of the players themselves – for the originals had been made by Fischer, a German, and had been destroyed in the pogrom at the beginning of the war in 1914. Yep, 1908 is definitely going to the top of my “If I Had a Time Machine” list.

SCHOPENHAUERS 38 STRATAGEMS, OR 38 WAYS TO WIN AN ARGUMENT Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860), was a brilliant German philosopher. These 38 Stratagems are excerpts from "The Art of Controversy", first translated into English and published in 1896. Carry your opponent's proposition beyond its natural limits; exaggerate it. The more general your opponent's statement becomes, the more objections you can find against it. The more restricted and narrow his or her propositions remain, the easier they are to defend by him or her. Use different meanings of your opponent's words to refute his or her argument.

14 Rare Color Photos From the FSA-OWI Photo by Russell Lee. Jack Whinery and his family, homesteaders, Pie Town, New Mexico, 1940. Even today, many documentary photographers will tell you they are influenced by the works of the Farm Security Administration in the 1930s and 40s. Under the direction of Roy Emerson Stryker, the FSA sent photographers to document the plight of the rural farmer during the Great Depression and the progress of New Deal programs. When the U.S. entered World War II, the photography program continued under the Office of War Information (OWI). The best-known FSA photographs are in black and white.

MapTool The jewel in the RPTools crown, don't let the name fool you. MapTool is much more than just a mapping program. Included are not only powerful tools for the creation of detailed maps, but also a chat function, detailed token management (allowing you to track properties of the units placed on the map and display health and status information), and an initiative tracker. Functions not being used can be hidden out of sight. These features enable your computer screen to function as a virtual table top, filling the role of battlemats and dry-erase markers and providing for infinitely scrollable maps and the ability to use a large-screen TV or video projector.

Most impressively, MapTool includes a tremendous macro function that allows you to automate just about any facet of your game that you wish. MapTool is open-source, and is actively contributed to by a large number of gifted persons. So don't worry.

Afflicted: 11 Abandoned American Hospitals and Asylums “Open” for Exploration With some of the most disturbing and tragic histories of any buildings in the US, asylums and hospitals are way beyond creepy . Many of them were built in the late 1800s, when “mental illnesses” (such as masturbation, menopause, and teenage rebellion) were considered dangerous enough to lock someone in an asylum. A pain-inflicting misunderstanding of mental illness combined with a chronic mistreatment of its sufferers meant that many people were never released and spent the remainder of their lives in these horrible institutions. In addition to asylums, many sanatoriums were constructed around this time to care for the poor and very sick. Utilizing radical treatments that were incredibly painful yet ineffective, early hospitals often created more suffering than good for the inflicted. To make matters worse, infectious outbreaks forced patients to be quarantined from the rest of society, further isolating them.
