Crittercam: Can You See Me Now?
“Crittercam” is an animal-borne imaging and data logging tool that was invented to explore and study cryptic behavior of marine and terrestrial species. For more than twenty years researchers have used this remote imaging concept in studies of more than 60 species (from emperor penguins to blue whales) and have documented unique and sometimes extraordinary natural events from the perspective of wild, free-ranging animals. The conservation impacts of some of the discoveries we’ve made have been significant. For all that, we’ve barely scratched the surface of the potential of this emerging field of research. Virtually every Crittercam deployment raises as many questions as it solves. Many aspects of the behavior and ecology of little known species remain mysterious due to a lack of tools for unobtrusive direct observation. I will explore the opportunities and challenges facing this growing field in the context of past, present and future technologies, research and conservation imperatives, as well as the encroaching ethical dilemma of capturing a wild point of view of human-environment mobile based interactions from the back of charismatic megafauna.
Patrick Stewart, the famous Professor X from "X-Men", is the narrator of this documentary what begins with an imaginary disaster: Venus hitting the Earth and destroying both. A fantasy?, maybe, but much astronomer scientist and other experts believe what, if the moon didn’t exist, surely would have happened already. With the help and the explain of some of these scientist, they will discover the reality and mystery of our satellite, from the faraway past…until the terrible future, when the moon, too much far from us, does what the Earth fatally overturns on Its axis by the absence of the lunar gravity. Somebody want to see It? Written by Ivan Sanluis Garcia

What would life on earth be like without the moon? Well, chances are, there wouldn’t be any life on earth without the moon. Life – if it had started at all – would still be in the earliest stages of evolution.
Scientists use the latest computer simulations to show how an ancient rogue planet – Orpheus – collided with the earth millions of years ago, producing a sizable chunk of debris that eventually became our moon. If that collision had never occurred, we would live in a very different place. Imagine a moon-less weather report – blizzards over the Sahara, floodwaters swallowing the Pyramids, 90-degree temperatures in Antarctica. As the earth wobbles on its axis – unsecured by the moon’s gravitational pull – the polar caps would grow and recede at frightening rates. And without the moon, our planet would spin much faster – meaning four-hour days and searing temperatures.
Worse yet, evidence reveals that we are in fact losing our grip on our lunar friend thanks to the ebb and flow of the oceans’ tides. Experts reveal theories for salvaging the moon – including hijacking Europa from Jupiter – and demonstrate how we can prepare ourselves for our eventual life without it.

How To Minimize the Pain Of Getting a Tattoo [sourced howcast.com]
Getting a tattoo will never be a walk in the park, but it can be less painful if you take a few simple precautions.
The vast majority of tattoo how to post I find are quite sub par. All of these seemed of a great quality and as a proud banded person of ink, I wanted to present something useful in the field. I spent a short time as a tattoo artist under a wonderful old school biker tattooist and know a side of it many fail to see. In a great tattoo it is a combination of knowledge planning and mixing of artist tattoo and the tattooed.

Drug Addiction (1951) Producer: Encyclopedia Britannica Films, Inc. [source]
Marty, a "good boy," experiments with marijuana and experiences "profound mental and emotional disturbances". As in all anti-drug films of this vintage, marijuana leads straight to "H", and Marty’s decline continues until he is busted, rehabbed and reformed.
Part 1 of 3
Drug Addiction’s stilted view of the urban drug culture and unrealistic portrayals of stoned slackers make it entertaining viewing today. It belongs to that little-known "second wave" of anti-drug films, the postwar scare stories about middle-class kids overcome by junkiedom. What this wave of films reveals is that drugs were an issue for white adolescents long before the psychedelic Sixties, and that the official response to the threat expressed a general, not specifically targeted paranoia.
Part 2 of 3
This film chronicles the decline and fall of "Marty", a "good boy" who becomes a junkie. Marty’s experimentation begins with marijuana, which produces "profound mental and emotional disturbances". Marty is caught, sent to a drug rehab center (where he cuts down dead corn stalks and plays checkers), and reforms. The scene where Marty and some of his stoned friends drink out of broken Pepsi bottles is memorable. As in all anti-drug films, the marijuana sequences are the most entertaining. "Thoughtless curiosity can lead to a lifetime of pain and torment!".
Part 3 of 3
Some how our world at large still thinks in this mindset. Is it not time we though with our own minds in every choice. Sense should dictate right, not power. We are the people and we are the law. Choose decide and make it real.
