****************

    1. Moments
      Quicksilver’s team riders.
      Maravilhosamente filmado e editado. A sessão do Clay Marzo é o destaque.
    2. Moments 2
      Desta vez é a sessão de Craig Anderson que vai te dar arrepios. O filme conta também tem uma das nossas sessões favoritas do Kelly.
    3. The Distant Shores
      Filme da revista Surfer com uma sessão inspiradora sobre um filme solitário, a surfar na Islândia e dos melhores tubos Indo que já vi.
    4. Electric Blue Heaven
      Um filme divertido de Dion Agius na piscina de ondas no Dubai. Muito boa banda sonora enorme por I Break Horses .
    5. Get-N Classic Vol.2
      Um grande filme da Vans, com a qualidade a que já nos habituou, power!!
    6. Leave A Message
      O Surf feminino a vincar que não é menos, é diferente. Excelente performance da Nike (girls) team!
    7.  Get-N Classic Vol. 1
      O primeiro filme do pessoal da Vans . Nós, particularmente, adoramos a sessão Shipsterns .
    8. Dane Reynolds Surf Film
      25 minutos de surf moderno, dos nossos surfistas favoritos.
    9. Cancer To Capricon
      Mick Fanning , Rob Machado e o resto da equipa da Reef .
    10. Hurricane Sandy South Florida
      Um bom filme, uma banda sonora um pouco “squelchy popstep” e um surf abismal em Florida.
    11. Cypher Vision
      Já passaram alguns anos, mas continuamos a amar este filme de Dane, Kelly , Jeremy Flores e Julian Wilson filmado numa forma “super- slo mo” no  México. Adoramos quando conseguimos ver o quanto flexiona (não há expressão melhor) a prancha de Julian Wilson , quando cai do ar para o lip.
    12. Biggest Teahupoo Ever on Phantom Cam
      O titulo diz tudo, ou não?!
    13. Kelly Slater 11 x World Champion
      É pequeno, mas uma boa “psych up” com um grande “Amém “. Banda sonora: remix de Ben Howard com “Black Flies” de Scott Nixon , com os highlights do caminho para o título mundial de Kelly a partir de 2011.
    14. 2012 Hot 100
      É o habitual da revista Surfer sobre os novos ‘groms’ que vão dar (ou já dão) que falar.
    15. No Filter
      Fox team riders Ian Walsh, Damien Hobgood e Bede Durbridge
    16. Dispatch
      A equipa da Oakley:  Jordy Smith , Sebastian Zietz , Adam Melling , Bruce Irons, Kolohe Andino e  Julian Wilson, entre outros a passarem por imensas peripécias para chegar à onda do costume.
    17. The Dark Side Of The Lens
      O fotógrafo de surf água fria , Mickey Smith, fez esta curta-metragem deslumbrante na Irlanda sobre o que ele faz e porquê.

Three Years of SDO Images (by SDOmission2009)

In the three years since it first provided images of the sun in the spring of 2010, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) has had virtually unbroken coverage of the sun’s rise toward solar maximum, the peak of solar activity in its regular 11-year cycle. This video shows those three years of the sun at a pace of two images per day. Each image is displayed for two frames at a 29.97 frame rate. Additional formats for the still and video can be found here:
http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/vis/a010000/a011200/a011255/index.html

The still image is a composite of 25 separate images spanning the period of April 16, 2012 to April 15, 2013. It uses the SDO AIA wavelength of 171 Angstroms and reveals the zones on the sun where active regions are most common during this part of the solar cycle.
SDO’s Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) captures a shot of the sun every 12 seconds in 10 different wavelengths. The images shown here are based on a wavelength of 171 Angstroms, which is in the extreme ultraviolet range and shows solar material at around 600,000 Kelvin. In this wavelength it is easy to see the sun’s 25-day rotation as well as how solar activity has increased over three years. During the course of the video, the sun subtly increases and decreases in apparent size. This is because the distance between the SDO spacecraft and the sun varies over time. The image is, however, remarkably consistent and stable despite the fact that SDO orbits the Earth at 6,876 miles per hour and the Earth orbits the sun at 67,062 miles per hour.
Such stability is crucial for scientists, who use SDO to learn more about our closest star. These images have regularly caught solar flares and coronal mass ejections in the act, types of space weather that can send radiation and solar material toward Earth and interfere with satellites in space. SDO’s glimpses into the violent dance on the sun help scientists understand what causes these giant explosions — with the hopes of some day improving our ability to predict this space weather.
The four wavelength view at the end of the video shows light at 4500 Angstroms, which is basically the visible light view of the sun, and reveals sunspots; light at 193 Angstroms which highlights material at 1 million Kelvin and reveals more of the sun’s corona; light at 304 Angstroms which highlights material at around 50,000 Kelvin and shows features in the transition region and chromosphere of the sun; and light at 171 Angstroms.

The Tiny Transforming Apartment: 8 Rooms in 420 Square Feet

link

Welcome to the New York city apartment of Graham Hill, a Canadian-born architect committed to bringing sustainability into the mainstream. His apartment does more with less. It has a footprint of only 420 square feet. Yet it’s elegantly-designed and completely functional. What initially looks like a simple studio unfolds into much more, a Soho apartment that features no less than eight rooms – a bedroom, guest room, kitchen, office and the rest. We’ll let Graham, the founder of treehugger.com, take you on the grand tour, and we’ll leave you to wonder what a designer could do with this Parisian apartment measuring only 17 square feet….

James Joyce Reads ‘Anna Livia Plurabelle’ from “Finnegans Wake”

Today is the birthday of James Joyce, who was born in Dublin on February 2, 1882, and wrote in A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man: “Welcome, O life! I go to encounter for the millionth time the reality of experience and to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race.”

To celebrate his life, we present an August 1929 recording of Joyce reading a melodious passage from the “Anna Livia Plurabelle” chapter of his Work in Progress, which would be published ten years later as Finnegans Wake. The recording was made in Cambridge, England, at the arrangement of Joyce’s friend and publisher Sylvia Beach. “How beautiful the ‘Anna Livia’ recording is,” wrote Beach in her memoir, Shakespeare and Company, “and how amusing Joyce’s rendering of an Irish washerwoman’s brogue!”
