‘Tween Earth and Sky – Becky Buller | Organic Pathos | Scoop.it

In baseball, a five-tool player comes along once every decade or two. Anyone who hits for average and power, has speed, is terrific defensively and has a rifle arm is revered. In bluegrass, the best of the best are three-tool players.

Becky Roehrs's curator insight, October 22, 7:43 AM
"In bluegrass, the best of the best are three-tool players. They play at a high level, sing superbly and write songs that are among the best in the business. There are many fine folks who are among the very best in one of the three categories, and a few who are near the top in two. But there are few who excel in all three." Becky Buller is one who excels at all three.

Artist, designer and art director Kevin Weir turned to history for inspiration for his latest GIFs. Using historical black-and-white photographs from the Library of Congress online archive, Weir created some very eerie and rather frightening GIFs. Weir got his start in making incredible GIFs like these by mastering design software while in graduate school.

The earliest known photograph to show a person, a Paris street scene from 1838, was published online this week.

Look in the photo's lower left corner and you'll see a man getting his boots cleaned on the sidewalk. The boot-cleaner is there too, although he is harder to spot.

 

The image has been posted online before, but it gained a higher profile after news site Mashable published a full-page version on Wednesday in partnership with Retronaut, a website that archives photos from the past.

Andrew McCluskey's curator insight, March 20, 1:57 PM

We've featured Dr. Anneli Haake's research into music in the work place before, in this article she addresses two of the major ways in which music can reduce workplace stress.  First in the way in which music can induce positive emotions and secondly - and perhaps more interestingly, the way in which music can give the listener control over their environment.  It seems that control over one's environment has a huge impact on wellbeing.
