00:45 Creating colloidal crystals
For decades, researchers have attempted to create crystals with a diamond-like structure using tiny colloid particles. Now, a team thinks they’ve cracked it, which could open the door for new optical technologies. Research Article: He et al.
In neurodegenerative disease, cell death can be prevented, however this can lead to the accumulation of incorrectly folded proteins. Now researchers have found targets that can be used to both stop cell death and protein aggregation. Research Article: Xu et al.
An essential and compelling exploration of the design, history, and culture of the motorcycle – an icon of the machine age…
Motorcycles are ubiquitous in the world’s streets and cities, evolving over decades in engineering and design to meet individual transportation needs. With the coming demise of the internal combustion engine and the rise of electric powered vehicles, motorcycle design is being revolutionized by new technologies, the demands of climate change, and global social transformation. The Motorcycle: Desire, Art, Design traces the exciting evolution of this automotive icon – and the culture of desire, freedom, and rebellion that surrounds it.
Motorcycle showcases 100 superb examples of motorcycle design from the late 19th century to the present day and beyond to the technological innovations of the future.
Beautifully illustrated with newly commissioned photography and archival ephemera, this visually arresting survey will prove compulsive reading to design lovers and motorcycle fans alike.
The eventful history of Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers, which have changed hands many times since they were painted for Paul Gauguin’s arrival in Arles.

Been adventuring and collecting shots all over Idaho this summer. I think I’d like to be a Peter Pan in the state of Idaho for the rest of my days… . There were some really special local friends, like Russell Davies CEO from PTSD Veteran Athletes that performed all extreme mountain bike and kayak stunts, Matthew Matkin the featured fly fisherman out of Pocatello and so many more that lended their time and skills to make this possible! Thank you! And, thanks to John L. Scott Real Estate Boise for commissioning this dream video. . A HUGE THANKS TO ALL THE IDAHO BASED FILM CREW:

We take you to discover the coastline of the French region of Brittany and its gems of natural beauty. With its 70-metre-high cliffs, the Cap Fréhel has some of the most dramatic scenery in the region. Further west, there are spectacular views over the Morlaix Bay, home to more than 60,000 seabirds. Out in the Atlantic, Ouessant is the last island before America. We end our journey at sunset at the Raz peninsula, looking out onto the Atlantic, at the tip of Europe.
Impressive and colourful landscapes, the scent of the moorlands, crashing waves and the call of seabirds: open your eyes, nostrils and ears! Looming above an emerald sea, the pink sandstone cliffs of the Cap d’Erquy headland are crowned by wild moorlands where the colours are ever-changing. The dazzling yellow of gorse flowers in spring is followed by violet heathers in summer. This nature reserve is home to a variety of plant species and is a haven for seabirds. Erquy is also a fishing-port, known for its scallops. Not far away, the majestic cliffs of Cap Fréhel provide one of the best views in Brittany. On a clear day, you can enjoy a panoramic view that stretches from the Cotentin Peninsula and Jersey all the way to Paimpol: it’s mind-blowing!
