In addition, we’ll be taking viewer questions at the end of the discussion.

Created as a set of billboards along two Massachusetts highways, “Healing Tool” is a temporary public art installation by artist Brian Kane produced to temporarily relieve stress and promote introspection during one’s monotonous daily commute.

Kane’s digital billboards circulate between pictures of surrounding natural environments, creating “unvertisements” that promote nothing instead of shoving products, restaurants, and services in consumers’ faces from above. The piece builds upon a body of work Kane has been producing that places digital experiences into real world situations. “Healing Tool” is named after the Photoshop tool used to patch over errors in photographs, just as his project is patching over unnatural blips of landscape (billboards) seen from the highway.

The pieces change depending on the time of day. Daylight hours feature natural images ofareas surrounding... more »

Japanese artist Tanaka Tatsuya has been photographing his collection of diorama dolls interacting with everyday objects he finds around his house to create dramatic and often humorous scenes. He has been doing this everyday, one scene per day, for the past four years to create a “Miniature Calendar”. So far he has created more than 1,000 scenes, and he isn’t likely to stop anytime soon.

The project started in 2011 in response to a comment on Instagram, in which a follower wrote, ‘I want to see the miniature calendar everyday‘. Tatsuya answered by posting something daily, and realized that the project was too good for him to quit.

The setting had been picked out -- all that was needed was an aurora. And late last August, forecasts predicted that an otherwise beautiful night sky would be lit up with auroral green. Jumping into his truck, the astrophotographer approached his secret site -- but only after a five hour drive across the rural Upper Peninsula of Michigan. What he didn't know was that his luck was just beginning. While setting up for the image, a proton arc -- a rare type of aurora -- appeared. The red arc lasted only about 15 minutes, but that was long enough to capture in a 30-second exposure. As the name indicates, proton arcs are caused not by electrons but by more massive protons that bombard the Earth's atmosphere following an energetic event on the Sun.

High above the plane of our solar system, near the asteroid-rich abyss between Mars and Jupiter, scientists have found a unique family of space rocks. These interplanetary oddballs are the Euphrosyne (pronounced you-FROH-seh-nee) asteroids, and by any measure they have been distant, dark and mysterious -- until now.

Since 1994, the mineral-rich province of North Kivu in the DRC has become a battleground for armies and armed groups who have plunged millions of people into a cycle of violence and poverty.

Among the hardest hit are the thousands of internally displaced people who must rely on humanitarian organizations for food.

The UN is distributing some food using the biometric fingerprinting system, which provides more accurate demographic data and can be used by emergency aid workers to plan their humanitarian support.

About YOKO ONO PLASTIC ONO BAND 
Around 1968, Ono decided to create a band “that would never exist . . . that didn’t have a set number of members . . . that could accommodate anyone who wanted to play with it.” The name derived from a small three-dimensional work—composed almost entirely of transparent plastic objects—that John Lennon made in response to Ono’s initial idea. Although conceptually Plastic Ono Band had no members, in practice it had a flexible lineup.

Spork

An eating utensil that adds fork tines to a spoon and never fails to amuse its users. The imperfect hybrid of unknown origin first appeared in the dictionary in 1909; it has since enjoyed a front-row view of history to rival Forrest Gump. A few highlights: General Douglas MacArthur allegedly gave sporks to Japanese prisoners to prevent them from attacking Allied soldiers with the pointed ends of forks or chopsticks (1940s); the utensil made a cameo in Disney’s Academy Award–winning Wall-E (2008); an independent musical—Spork—featured a hermaphrodite protagonist (2010); President Bill Clinton, in a nationally televised speech, compared the dual nature of his administration to a spork (1995); and, in a bizarre incident, a would-be robber attempted to hold up a bank in Anchorage, Alaska, with a spork from a local fried-chicken restaurant (2008).

Driving through some of the back country roads of rural America can be kind of creepy, especially when there’s no moon. If you happen to be driving through the rural lanes of Indiana near the little town of Amity, you might come across something more than a little bizarre – a grave in the middle of the road.

Don’t worry, it’s supposed to be there. It belongs to 39-year-old Nancy Kerlin Barnett, who was buried there on December 1, 1831. At the time of her burial it obviously wasn’t a road – instead, it was at the top of a small hill, and was said to be one of her favourite spots to spend her precious free time.

Over the next few decades, other family members were buried in the same area, and a small cemetery sprang up. But in 1901, city planners decided that a road was needed near the town of Amity. Unfortunately, that road was planned to go right though the middle of thelittle ceme... more »

Using the Landsat 8 satellite, we captured these images of algal blooms around the Great Lakes on July 28. The bloom is visible as swirls of green in western Lake Erie (top) and in Lake St. Clair (bottom). More: http://go.nasa.gov/1N2nKKF #EarthRightNow

Fart humor is timeless. Arabian Nights features a tale called “The Historic Fart.” Apocolocyntosis, a political satire often attributed to the Roman writer Seneca, includes the following gassy passage: “When he had made a great noise with that end of him which talked easiest, he cried out, ‘Oh dear, oh dear! I think I have made a mess of myself.’” And of course, there was fart art, long before The Lion King’s Pumbaa felled entire herds with his flatulence.

On July 31, 1790, the United States issued its first patent to one Samuel Hopkins for a process that improved the making of potash, a fertilizer ingredient. Now, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office grants more than 300,000 patents per year. In the past 225 years, people have patented some pretty weird stuff. Here are 10 stand-out inventions.

...we’re in a legitimate crisis in California. And while limiting large-scale agriculture, tearing out useless lawns and building up instead of out are probably wider-reaching solutions, it’s frustrating, on a personal level, to run my washing machine and think of all that barely used water draining, rushing to my city’s treatment plant, undergoing an energy-intensive purification process and then being pumped back to me — all to be poured out on dirt.

So I’m glad that some cities are trying to incorporate gray water into their roster of solutions. In Encinitas, a suburb of San Diego, the city council recently approved an ordinance stating that all newly constructed homes need to come pre-plumbed for gray water — and that’s huge.

Scarecrow festivals are held all over the world, but they are especially popular in the United Kingdom, where the use of scarecrows as a protector of crops date from time immemorial. Scarecrows are usually built from straw and wood, but in medieval Britain, scarecrows were young boys who were tasked with the responsibility of scarring away birds. Known as bird scarers or bird shooers, they patrolled wheat fields carrying bags of stones, and chased away any crow or starling that tried to land in the fields by waving their arms and throwing the stones. When the Great Plague of of 1348 wiped half the population in Britain, landowners couldn’t find enough young boys to employ as bird scarers to protect their crops. So they stuffed sacks with straw, carved faces in turnips or gourds, and made scarecrows that stood against poles.

Food assistance delivered to those in need -- courtesy of a camel!

The World Food Programme provides food assistance across the globe by all means possible -- even by camel!

At any given time, there are 5,000 trucks, 70 aircraft and 20 ships delivering food assistance around the planet. Air drops are used only when the UN cannot access vulnerable, hard-to-reach communities due to difficult road and water paths, such as in South Sudan.

WFP has also been known to use elephants, donkeys and camels to carry much-needed assistance.

British artist Richard Dadd was born #onthisday in 1817. His lightened palette, fascination with detail, and interest in decorative patterning typify mid-1800s English painting. He made this composition in an insane asylum after he lost his sanity and murdered his father in 1843. He remained in a mental hospital for the next forty-three years and continued to paint.

Global Map of Pluto's Moon Charon

NASA's New Horizons science team has produced this global map of Charon which includes all available resolved images of the surface acquired between July 7-14, 2015, at pixel resolutions ranging from 40 kilometers (24 miles) on the anti-Pluto facing hemisphere (left and right sides of the map), to 400 meters (1,250 feet) per pixel on portions of the Pluto-facing hemisphere – the side facing the New Horizons spacecraft when it flew past the dwarf planet – at map center.

While thrift shopping in Richmond, Virginia a few weeks ago, photographer Meagan Abell came across four sets of medium-format negatives encased in plastic sleeves and sitting in a box of old vintage photographs. Curious about the images, Abell bought the negatives, took them home, and scanned them. The stunning results, which she posted on Facebook yesterday, show two young women standing on a seashore, bathed in the dreamy, rosy light of the setting sun.

Created as a set of billboards along two Massachusetts highways, “Healing Tool” is a temporary public art installation by artist Brian Kane produced to temporarily relieve stress and promote introspection during one’s monotonous daily commute.

Kane’s digital billboards circulate between pictures of surrounding natural environments, creating “unvertisements” that promote nothing instead of shoving products, restaurants, and services in consumers’ faces from above. The piece builds upon a body of work Kane has been producing that places digital experiences into real world situations. “Healing Tool” is named after the Photoshop tool used to patch over errors in photographs, just as his project is patching over unnatural blips of landscape (billboards) seen from the highway.

The pieces change depending on the time of day. Daylight hours feature natural images of areas surrounding the billboards, while evening hours display high-resolution images of the moon and Milky Way that allow viewers a clear glimpse of the cosmos despite urban light pollution.___
