The oceans are in trouble, and while marine biologists and conservationists and (God help us) politicians are the main advocates for the health of our planet, photographers can also play a role.

One photographer doing his part to help ensure future generations enjoy pristine oceans is Richard Salas, a talented underwater photographer with a decade of underwater photo experience who is currently crowdfunding the last of a trilogy of underwater photobooks that are helping both fund and inspire change.

[Quote]:

Liang was diagnosed with the tumor at the age of 9, just after he moved to Shenzhen to join his brother and sister, and to attend primary school, Shanghai Daily reports. One day, Liang felt dizzy and the next day had trouble walking, so his sister took him to a hospital where he learned he had a brain tumor.

Before passing away on June 6, Liang told his mother, Li Qun, that he wanted to donate his organs.

“There are many people doing great things in the world,” he said according to China Daily. “They are great, and I want to be a great kid too.”

You can’t really get a good idea of how majestic this is until you see it in IMAX, narrated by Morgan Freeman.

  1. As in – all the western powers (literally) supporting a creaky, worn out, bloated, decrepit plutocracy? I’m sure the Queen is a very nice lady and Putin certainly is no angel but, yeah, that is a picture worth a thousand words.

2,100 people are thought to be buried by the landslides that hit a remote area in northern Afghanistan. Officials say the site has become a mass grave for the village of Abi Barak. After the landslide struck on Friday, residents from a nearby village rushed to the scene to help dig people out and the second landslide struck, killing many of the rescuers. Rescue efforts on now focused on the displaced survivors. –Thea Breite (18 photos total)

A Hole in Mars

Posted on March 9th, 2014 at 15:17 by John Sinteur in category: Great Picture

[Quote]:

What created this unusual hole in Mars?

The hole was discovered by chance in 2011 on images of the dusty slopes of Mars’ Pavonis Mons volcano taken by the HiRISE instrument aboard the robotic Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter currently circling Mars. The hole appears to be an opening to an underground cavern, partly illuminated on the image right. Analysis of this and follow-up images revealed the opening to be about 35 meters across, while the interior shadow angle indicates that the underlying cavern is roughly 20 meters deep. Why there is a circular crater surrounding this hole remains a topic of speculation, as is the full extent of the underlying cavern. Holes such as this are of particular interest because their interior caves are relatively protected from the harsh surface of Mars, making them relatively good candidates to contain Martian life. These pits are therefore prime targets for possible future spacecraft, robots, and even human interplanetary explorers.

  1. Mixed up your titles and images again, John? As skilled a web surfer as you are, I know you didn’t have trouble finding Ukrainian news on any US news outlet.

    The west can’t do much more than wag fingers at Russia and hope a ceasefire emerges. Economic penalties don’t do much and anything else is pretty much out of the question but if its pictures you’re looking for, try USA Today, NBC News, CNN, CBS News, New York Times, Washington Post, New Orleans Times-Picayune, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Dallas Morning Star, etc …

  2. @Rob …hhmmm…did not know a Russian and Ukraine shooting war had begun thereby justifying your “ceasefire” comment. Perhaps you better check your sources.

  3. Poor choice of words on my part, Mykolas. Hoping for withdrawal now, ceasefire if it comes to that. That’s pretty much all we can do. We have to hope for it. We can’t impose it.

  4. I think Mr. P’s plan all along has been to divide Ukraine along ethnic lines. Enhanced military in the region to “secure the Sochi Olympics” etc. Best option now for the West may be a federated state of some sort but it’s not likely.
