“O que acontece às trabalhadoras sexuais quando envelhecem?”

“O que acontece às trabalhadoras sexuais quando envelhecem?” | Coffee Break Ezine | Scoop.it

sta foi a pergunta que a fotógrafa francesa Bénédicte Desrus fez a si própria quando uma reportagem a levou até à Casa Xochiquetzal, para fazer o retrato da mentora do espaço, Carmen Muñoz. As mulheres e as histórias de vida que lá encontrou nunca mais lhe saíram da cabeça e foi assim que nasceu o projeto “Las Amorosas Más Bravas”, que resultou num livro verdadeiramente comovente.

New study shows that people stop listening to new music at 33 | Coffee Break Ezine | Scoop.it
If you’re 33 or older, you will never listen to new music again—at least, that’s more or less what a new online study says. The study, which is based mainly on data from U.S. Spotify users, concludes that age 33 is when, on average, people stop discovering new music and begin the official march to t

The Radioactive Man Who Returned To Fukushima To Feed The Animals That Everyone Else Left Behind

The Radioactive Man Who Returned To Fukushima To Feed The Animals That Everyone Else Left Behind | Coffee Break Ezine | Scoop.it

The ‘guardian of Fukushima’s animals’.

The untold human suffering and property damage left in the wake of the Fukushima disaster in Japan has been well-documented, but there’s another population that suffered greatly that few have discussed – the animals left behind in the radioactive exclusion zone. One man, however, hasn’t forgotten – 55-year-old Naoto Matsumura, a former construction worker who lives in the zone to care for its four-legged survivors.

He is known as the ‘guardian of Fukushima’s animals’ because of the work he does to feed the animals left behind by people in their rush to evacuate the government’s 12.5-mile exclusion zone. He is aware of the radiation he is subject to on a daily basis, but says that he “refuses to worry about it.” He does take steps, however, by only eating food imported into the zone.

See more about his work and what he has seen in the exclusion zone below!

Descifran los enigmas de la Gran Pirámide de Keops

Descifran los enigmas de la Gran Pirámide de Keops | Coffee Break Ezine | Scoop.it

Após dez anos de pesquisas, o arquiteto catalão Miguel Pérez-Sánchez concluiu uma reconstrução computadorizada da Pirâmide de Quéops, cuja incrível exatidão permitiu que ele conseguisse solucionar enigmas ancestrais. Para o investigador, a análise fez com que ele entendesse que a pirâmide era “uma espécie de enciclopédia do saber de seu tempo”. Esta é a primeira vez que conhecemos sua forma exata e, portanto, temos uma leitura mais profunda de suas referências e do sistema matemático que representava.

A reconstrução mostra que a pirâmide era coroada por uma esfera de 2,7 metros de diâmetro, a qual simbolizava o olho de Hórus e indicava a distância proporcional do Sol em relação a Sirius, a estrela mais brilhante do céu. O nível de imprecisão do projeto tridimensional da Grande Pirâmide é de apenas quatro decimais, ou seja, tem uma precisão cem vezes maior que a normal, em forma de construção arquitetônica. Isso permitiu que fossem detectados padrões mais confiáveis, como o fato de a superfície da pirâmide ser 100 mil vezes o número Pi (µ). Dessa forma, um novo e mais profundo estudo dessa construção histórica confirma que a sociedade egípcia possuía conhecimentos científicos extraordinariamente avançados para a época.

Blind Man And His Armless Friend Spend 10 Years Planting 10,000 Trees In China

Blind Man And His Armless Friend Spend 10 Years Planting 10,000 Trees In China | Coffee Break Ezine | Scoop.it

A blind man named Jia Haixia and his friend, a double amputee with no arms named Jia Wenqi, have spent more than 10 years replanting trees to revive the once-barren environment around Yeli Village in northeastern China.

Haixia was born blind in one eye and lost the other in 2000 in a work-related accident. Wenqi lost both of his arms in an accident when he was only 3 years old. Together, they’ve leased 8 acres of land from the government and have begun replanting the land with trees to protect the village from flooding.
