Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park is located in western Colorado, USA. “Several canyons of the American West are longer and some are deeper, but none combines the depth, sheerness, narrowness, darkness, and dread of the Black Canyon.” (Duane Vandenbusche, The Black Canyon of the Gunnison).
In the video – views from the South Rim viewpoints, the North Rim (1:16 to 3:11), descending to the river via the Gunnison Route (from the South Rim Visitor Center, 3:40 to 6:05). Recorded July 2020 in 4K Ultra HD with Sony AX700 and DJI Osmo Pocket.
“Disunion—the possibility that it all might go to pieces—is a hidden thread through our entire history,” the journalist and historian Richard Kreitner writes in Break It Up: Secession, Division, and the Secret History of America’s Imperfect Union.
“Our refusal to recognize this, like patients who insist, against all evidence, that they are not ill, has been a major cause of our political dysfunction and social strife. Secession is the only kind of revolution we Americans have ever known and the only kind we’re ever likely to see.” On this episode of The World in Time, Lewis H. Lapham and Kreitner start at the beginning of the United States of America and trace this history of disunion up to the present. Lewis H. Lapham speaks with Richard Kreitner, author of “Break It Up: Secession, Division, and the Secret History of America’s Imperfect Union.”
This beautiful historic villa, located on a scenic position, on one of the hill tops on the left side of the river Arno, a few kilometres from Florence, is now for sale. Its beautiful facade appears on the label of a wine that has made the history of Chianti Classico in the world: we are talking about Villa Antinori Monte Aguglioni, belonged to one of the great families of the Tuscan wine tradition from the late 19th century until the middle of last century. This beautiful villa, located just 5 kilometers from Florence, is rich in history. From 1498 to 1517 it was owned by the powerful Del Giocondo family who owned the famous Monna Lisa, wife of Francesco del Giocondo, called “La Gioconda,” painted by Leonardo Da Vinci in circa 1505. From here it seems that Baldo was the Aguglione, jurist and Florentine politician, contemporary of Dante, who the great poet mentions twice in his Divine Comedy as the “villan of Aguglione.” It was, in fact, the Aguglione to give judgment, September 2, 1311, which excluded Dante from the amnesty, preventing the return from exile. This is a rare complex from the 16th century, constituted by the manor house and other buildings of pertinence such as the keepers lodgings and other rural buildings of agricultural use. The property is surrounded by splendid parks and gardens, tree-lined alleys, vineyards and olive groves. A large wood surrounds and shelters this dreamlike property. There are two entrances: the main and original one is an iron double gate that allows access through a driveway, lined by cypress trees, that leads to the Italian style garden rich in ornamental plants and basins, which was originally designed by the English architect Cecil Pinsent, who created an actual park with rose beds, scented plants and symmetric flower beds. There is also a double ramp staircase leading to the main level.

Southern Spain: home to distinctive landscapes, extreme climates, and a unique species of wildcat. The Iberian lynx is smaller than its European cousin and has evolved to survive almost exclusively by hunting wild rabbits.
Yet this unvaried diet is what drove the Iberian lynx to the brink of extinction during the 20th century. We introduce the breeding and conservation programs that have helped the wildcat make a remarkable recovery, and take a look at the threats the endangered species still faces today.
The Iberian lynx is a wild cat species endemic to the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe. It is listed as Endangered on the IUCN Red List.
