MAKE THE CONNECTION

 

"And suddenly, I looked at the bull. He had this innocence that all animals have in their eyes, and he looked at me with this pleading. It was like a cry for justice, deep down inside of me. I describe it as being like ...a prayer - because if one confesses, it is hoped, that one is forgiven. I felt like the worst shit on earth."

 

This photo shows the collapse of Torrero Alvaro Munera, as he realized in the middle of the his last fight... the injustice to the animal. From that day forward he became an opponent of bullfights.

That was cool. Thanks for sharing. I have a new fun tool for virtual storm chasing. I'm not as adventurous as I used to be. Is there any chance that there is an international version? We had a big typhoon in Asia this past week. Crazy weather.

"Because they honor an artist’s entire career, lifetime achievement awards can be tricky. They’re especially gratifying, for they imply that you had more than one or two peak moments, and sustained excellence over a long period. But they also come with the unspoken implication that maybe your career is over, or at least winding down.

One could tell that Jack DeJohnette was genuinely pleased to be named a 2012 National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master, just such a lifetime achievement award. Five days before the ceremony, the 69-year-old drummer sat in the New York offices of his new label, eOne, and beamed with both satisfaction and astonishment when the award was mentioned. But he was also quick to emphasize his current projects: his new album and his young road band....

Google’s Art Project Grows Larger With 151 Museums Online Across 40 Countries

Google’s Art Project Grows Larger With 151 Museums Online Across 40 Countries | Share Some Love Today | Scoop.it

Google has announced that Google Art Project  - http://bit.ly/HcWigt , where art lovers, students and armchair travellers can explore the visually creative world, has seen a major expansion.

 

Now culture fans will be able to explore sculpture, street art and photographs from 151 Museums - http://bit.ly/HIC3SX in 40 Countries  -  http://bit.ly/HICzAb.

 

A deeper appreciation

Using completely new tools, called Explore and Discover, you can find artworks by period, artist or type of artwork, displaying works from different museums around the world.

 

Google+ and Hangouts are integrated on the site, so that users can create personal galleries and an enhanced ‘My Gallery’ feature allows visitors to select any of the 30,000 artworks—along with favourite details to build a very personalised experience.

 

Up close and personal

The Google Art Project now has 46 artworks available with “gigapixel” photo capturing technology, photographed in extraordinary detail using super high resolution.

 

Though purists will still want to seek out the atmosphere and smells of a location in which to enjoy their art experience, the Art Project is simple-to-use and fascinating to explore, not just for the works themselves, but also the unique way in which they have been presented.

 

Superb!

The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, one of my favorite space probes ever, takes amazing high-res pictures of the lunar surface. But more than that, it can map the elevations of lunar features using shadows as a guide. Knowing the angles of the Sun, the Moon, and its viewing position, it can accurately gauge the elevations of the Moon’s surface as it takes image after image, orbit after orbit.

The Brain on Love

The Brain on Love | Share Some Love Today | Scoop.it

A RELATIVELY new field, called interpersonal neurobiology, draws its vigor from one of the great discoveries of our era: that the brain is constantly rewiring itself based on daily life. In the end, what we pay the most attention to defines us. How you choose to spend the irreplaceable hours of your life literally transforms you.

 

All relationships change the brain — but most important are the intimate bonds that foster or fail us, altering the delicate circuits that shape memories, emotions and that ultimate souvenir, the self.

The Art of Social Image Curation And Visual Linking

The Art of Social Image Curation And Visual Linking | Share Some Love Today | Scoop.it
It seems like everyone is jumping on the Pinterest bandwagon these days and creating boards of their favorite images.

 

Pinterest is creating a new type of online sharer, the social image curator.

 

This activity goes way beyond normal photo sharing that’s done on Flickr or Facebook.

Users are connecting with images to self-identify with their needs, wants and desires.  

It’s important for marketers to understand this trend and learn from it in order to create and display images that users want to pin and share.

 

Visual Bookmarking and Storytelling

The truth is Pinterest gives users a care-free way of categorizing content on their terms.

Finding and consuming information is much easier and quicker when it’s in a visual format.

Let’s not forget the current fascination with data visualization, a.k.a. Infographics - http://bit.ly/H2u1CI .

Those creative illustrations combine information with compelling graphics (hence the name) to create perfect vehicles for storytelling.  

 

Developing a Visual Content Strategy

Professionals in marketing, PR and social media functions not only need to quickly learn how to curate images for business-branded accounts, they need to think about content marketing in the visual sense. That means developing a visual strategy for blog posts, white papers, research insights, and other collateral produced for external consumption.

 

Visual Content Drives Traffic

Start inserting URLs into your images to seamlessly create digital pathways to destination sites. In doing so, you may boost your SEO rankings in the process on sites that follow directives for links. (Note: Pinterest has implemented a "no follow" rule on their site.) While the majority of images on many sites represent consumer goods, there’s also plenty of opportunity to drive interested buyers of B2B services through imagery as well.

Curate Your Favorite Songs with Sworly

Curate Your Favorite Songs with Sworly | Share Some Love Today | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Sworly is Pinterest for audio tracks. If there is a music track on YouTube, Sworly will find it and let you pin it.

 

"Rather than encourage users to create interesting collections of images, Sworly brings the Pinterest approach to sharing music.

 

After logging in with Facebook (yes there’s annoyingly no other choice) you can start to add songs to Sworly if they haven’t already been added.

 

...At first glance, the ‘Add song’ feature is a little confusing, but it’s actually quite easy to use. Simply enter the artist name and song you want to share, and Sworly will automatically find the best video for you.

 

Add optional tags and a description and post it to your profile."

 

N.B.: There is currently no way to delete a song from your profile.

 

No collections or playlists (yet).

10 Places You're Not Allowed to See on Google Maps

Google maps brings the world to your desktop - well, most of it, anyway. Here are 10 locations that governments and other entities have blurred or removed from satellite photos.

Anhony DeSimone's curator insight, December 18, 2013 9:15 PM

although we like to think that we are able to go anywhere on the world wide web some locations are off limits. Google Earth allows us to see place we have never been. However, some place are not available for us to see due to security reasons. Google Earth has restricted the public to view certain images of locations.

Luke Walker's curator insight, October 3, 2014 3:50 AM

The geographic context surrounding some locations is highly restricted.

What does this censorship tell you? 

It's not always political, some areas of resource extraction have been blurred too.
