I like movies!
Invitation to an Arena night club party. The capsule was placed in water and the invitation appeared. Arena was open from 1983 to 1987.
These vegetated surfaces don’t just look pretty. They have other benefits as well, including cooling city blocks, reducing loud noises, and improving a building’s energy efficiency.What’s more, a recent modeling study shows that green walls can potentially reduce large amounts of air pollution in what’s called a “street canyon,” or the corridor between tall buildings.
For the study, Thomas Pugh, a biogeochemist at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, and his colleagues created a computer model of a green wall with generic vegetation in a Western European city. Then they recorded chemical reactions based on a variety of factors, such as wind speed and building placement.
The simulation revealed a clear pattern: A green wall in a street canyon trapped or absorbed large amounts of nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter—both pollutants harmful to people, said Pugh. Compared with reducing emissions from cars, little attention has been focused on how to trap or take up more of the pollutants, added Pugh, whose study was published last year in the journal Environmental Science & Technology.
That’s why the green-wall study is “putting forward an alternative solution that might allow [governments] to improve air quality in these problem hot spots,” he said. Compared with reducing emissions from cars, little attention has been focused on how to trap or take up more of the pollutants, added Pugh, whose study was published last year in the journal Environmental Science & Technology.
Swiss photographer and artist Fabian Oefner’s passion is to recreate natural phenomena and capture them in a way that is visually impactful. For his series titled Black Hole, he poured acrylic paint over a metal rod that was attached to an electric drill; once the drill was powered on, the paint started to move away from the rod, and it is this action that Oefner captures in his images.
Like, I knew shepherding was a boring job
but these guys really had nothing better to do
more like this is the COOLEST THING I’VE EVER SEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!
DO YOU GUYS UNDERSTAND HOW FUCKING COOL THAT IS. THOSE GUY ARE LIKE THE MASTERS OF SHEPHERDING. THEY’RE DOING THIS STUFF WITH ANIMALS THAT DON,T KNWO WHAT THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO DO. THEY’RE NOT EVEN AWARE THEY’RE MAKING ANYTHING. THE DOGS ARE GOOD TOO. THIS IS A MASTERPIECE
Behold the 3Doodler, the world’s first pen that lets you draw 3D sculptures in real time.
has science gone too far
