Insightful and at times very disturbing account of the tough lives led by Mexican farmhands working for major growers. An excellent starting point for lots of discussions!

YOUNG SEA TURTLES MAKE LONG MIGRATIONS TOO | geography | Scoop.it

Everyone remembers the scene-stealing sea turtles from "Finding Nemo" as they cruised down the East Austrailian current with their surfer talk and laid-back demeanor. Like other sea turtle species, they are known for long migrations back to their birthplaces, where they hatch their young.

Will Teleportation Ever Be Possible?

Molly M's curator insight, October 13, 2013 7:55 PM

This video makes some of the more abstract principles of teleportation easier to understand, and it also explains why teleportation may not realistically possible. It also addresses the entanglement principle (i.e. "destroy the original") in a more concrete manner and gets into some of the timing issues (for example, this was the first article that explained exactly how long it would take to physically teleport a human--three times the age of the universe in years. Yikes). Like many of the other articles I've read/viewed, it sort of takes the fun out of the teleportation possibility, but it also gives me issues to "resolve" when creating my company...or at least issues to address or explain.

Watch the Northern Lights from Glass Igloos at Hotel Kakslauttanen, Finland

Watch the Northern Lights from Glass Igloos at Hotel Kakslauttanen, Finland | geography | Scoop.it

What better way to view the northern lights than from your bed through a glass roof?

That’s what the accommodation Finnish hotel Kakslauttanen offers guests within a village of geodesic dome glass igloos. The unique setting merges old and new using a traditional igloo form, composed of angular glass framework.

The igloos are created from a highly effective thermal glass which keeps the insides nice and cosy while temperatures outside plummet to -30˚. This special glass manages to stop condensation from forming on the inside while also preventing frost from settling on the outside of the igloo to offer guests a clear view of the northern lights...

Devy Christina's comment, October 2, 2014 9:22 AM
This is such a different and unique concept of hotel especially with a glass as the roof of the hotel room that allows customers to enjoy the northern lights with the luxury ambience.
However, this kind of hotel concept might have spent a lot of cost to build because of the concept of architecture that prevents the top of the glass roof to frost. Thus, it should be an expensive accommodation to be spent on.
On the other hand, this concept of hotel might affect the surrounding environment.
Therefore, the customers might consider some of these points before they decide to stay in this hotel.

linh pham's curator insight, October 7, 2014 10:07 PM

Want to see the northern lights which only appear in a season a year, choosing Finnish hotel Kakslauttanen is the right decision for people who want to see a natural phenomenon. The unique architechture look like a igloo outside but fully furniture inside bring to the customer the best experience while staying here. The igloo, is a dome shaped of Eskimo house use to block of solids snow, built with a special glass so that you can see clearly the view from inside. A special glass was made to prevent the condensation frost from settling on the outside of igloo and keep inside warmer with the temperature at minus 3 degree while temperatures outside plummet to minus 30 degree. I would like to go there to see a special natural phenomenon in the world and enjoy the unique experience you can have.

Biologist and Atheist Richard Dawkins on Charles Darwin

Biologist and Atheist Richard Dawkins on Charles Darwin | geography | Scoop.it

The “bridges,” a metaphor for the historic inception and development of the theory of evolution, illustrate the incremental theoretical achievements of Charles Darwin and his contemporaries. For example, while some of his fellow biologists managed to cross the first and second bridge—grasping the insight that natural selection’s force was not only to weed out unfit individuals but also to drive morphological change—Darwin, seeing further, crossed the third and fourth bridges, recognizing not only that natural selection explained the workings of all organic life but also that such a grand story ought to receive the treatment only a full-length book could provide.

Happy New Year From Winter Wonderland | Olaf Sztaba

Happy New Year From Winter Wonderland | Olaf Sztaba | geography | Scoop.it

 

Each time I talk to my friends from Europe about snowless winters in Vancouver they cannot believe it. After all, this is wild white cold Canada, which many people (including myself before I moved here) knew from the National Geographic movies and publications. While the special location makes it rare to experience full-fledged winter in Vancouver (except in the high mountains surrounding Vancouver) just one hour’s drive away you can find a true winter wonderland. That is exactly what we wanted to capture when we woke up very early last week and drove nearly two hours north of Vancouver. While sometimes we come back from our photography trips with nothing (we don’t process dull images – that’s a waste of time!), this time we encountered perfect light. Snow-covered peaks were blanketed with blue, orange and purple clouds. Each time the rising sun found a gap in the clouds, the whole scene came alive once again in different colours and moods. Our tool of choice was the Fuji X-Pro1 with the XF 35mm F1.4 lens. All images were processed in Lightroom 4, sharpening in NIK Sharpener Pro.

Photographed between 1909 and 1932, the collection offers a rare glimpse in the natives' everyday life from hunting polar bears, to building igloos, to their personal dwellings inside.

Standing with bow and arrows and hand, a hunter photographed in 1924 proudly poses before his kill of a massive polar bear, resting more than twice his size along the snow, arrows protruding from its chest.
