    How the light changes: South Dakota

    (intense music) – What’s so special about South Dakota and why I keep coming back here, is because there’s just so much space. (intense music) I spend a lot of my time outside in the mountains seeking inspiration, but also looking inwards, feeling how my body connects to the landscape. (intense music) But the other side of me is that I’m an artist, and I enjoy plein air painting. Really observing the landscape through my activities, and then spending time immersed in those places, actually painting what I see. (intense music) (laughing) Be curious and watch as the light changes throughout the day, and that’s one of my favorite things…

    The Story of “Blue (Da Ba Dee)” by Eiffel 65

    ♪♪ -Back then, none of the studios were actually soundproof, so you could always hear what the others were working on, and I was working in my studio. I was hearing, you know, this piano melody coming from Maurizio’s studios, and I remember I thought, “Wow, this is beautiful.” ♪♪ -When I first heard the melody, it was a piano melody, but it was really hard to imagine where it would fit. And Massimo goes, “We’re going to make a dance track out of it.” -And then we turned on the radio, and the song was there. -That’s when it really blew up. It was like, bang! ♪ I’m blue,…

    Deaf in the military [Subtitled] | Keith Nolan | TEDxIslay

    Translator: TED Translators admin Reviewer: Claire Ghyselen (Interpreter voice-over) Hello, everyone. My name is Keith Nolan. I’m a cadet private. My talk today is on the topic of the military. How many of you out there thought you’d ever like to join the military? I see a number of you nodding. And I thought the same thing ever since I was young. Growing up, I’d always wanted to join the military. I loved military history and I’ve read a great deal on the subject. Also, I have various family members, such as my grandfather and great uncle, who fought in World War II. And like them, I wanted the same…

    The Métis of Fort Walsh and Cypress Hills Massacre National Historic Sites

    Cypress Hills are unique to Saskatchewan. When you think of Saskatchewan you think flat, but this area here was missed by the last ice age so you have a flat plateau on the top and folks around here call that the bench and then you have all these coulees and valleys and creeks and springs running through them. Fort Walsh was founded in the mid-1870s as a result of the journey west of the North West Mounted Police to stop the whiskey traders. A lot of the Métis families like the McKays and the La Valais that worked as interpreters were connected to it and some of the daughters of…

    A Day at a Japanese Cat Shelter in Tokyo / JAPAN VLOG

    Hi there! So, today I’ll be going to a cat shelter with 2 friends in Tokyo. I think that it’s about the fifth time that I’m going but I still love it there every time! You’ll see why! 🙂 The concept of the cat shelter here is that they, of course, rescue cats, transport them to the shelter, take care of them rehabilitate them if necessary and then, people can go to the shelter first they have to pay 1000 yen (about 8 euros) as an entrance fee and then, they can get to know all of the cats with the main objective of adopting but you’re of course also…
