Un photographe alpiniste réalise des clichés incroyables dans des conditions extrêmes

Un photographe alpiniste réalise des clichés incroyables dans des conditions extrêmes | For Curious minds | Scoop.it

Robert Bösch est un guide de montagne Suisse, mais aussi un célèbre photographe travaillant actuellement en collaboration avec la marque Mammut. Cette entreprise, qui vend des équipements pour les sports de montagne, a souhaité rendre hommage à l'un des pionniers de l'Alpinisme : Edward Whymper. Robert Bosch ainsi que des alpinistes vont mettre en scène la première ascension du Cervin, la montagne la plus connue de Suisse, réalisée 150 ans plus tôt par Edward Whymper. Les lumières rouges le long de l'arête Hörnli retracent le parcours de l'alpiniste anglais. À l'époque, ce fût un véritable défi contre la mort au nom de l'exploration.

Cognitive benefit of lifelong bilingualism

Cognitive benefit of lifelong bilingualism | For Curious minds | Scoop.it
Older bilinguals expend less energy when performing a cognitive flexibility task. The findings suggest the value of regular stimulating mental activity across the lifetime. As people age, cognitive flexibility -- the ability to adapt to unfamiliar or unexpected circumstances -- and related "executive" functions decline. Recent studies suggest lifelong bilingualism may reduce this decline -- a boost that may stem from the experience of constantly switching between languages.
