Today’s picture shows an explorer in the Amazon Jungle. He is going down the Amazon on a log raft with an Indian Guide. I find it interesting that the man appears to be wearing a necktie. I would think at this point you would be going more for functionality and comfort in your attire. I can not help but wonder if he is a missionary…. via.

The derelict past of New York City’s Lower East Side is now but a memory as blocks of abandoned apartment buildings have given way to endless trendy eateries and $2,000 per month studio apartments.

But a photographer who once found herself living among the self-reliant squatters who made their DIY homes in the neighborhood in the 1990s is telling their stories through intimate portraits of the bygone era.

This Guy Found a Trap Door In His New Apartment. What He Found Is Hauntingly Awesome.

[documentary]

When moving into a new studio apartment, this tenant didn’t expect to stumble into a mind-blowing secret. Although it used to be an old English monastery, dating back to the 19th century, it was renovated. There are approximately 30 apartments inside and this tiny studio was a steal at the cheap price. Or at least, he thought it was tiny.

Supai: An Isolated Indian Village Inside the Grand Canyon

Despite being one of the most visited places in the United States, the Grand Canyon area in Arizona, still holds secrets. One of these is the Indian village of Supai located at the bottom of Havasu Canyon also known as Cataract Canyon, a side branch of the Grand Canyon, on the Havasupai Nation reservation. Home to the Havasupai tribe who have been living in the Grand Canyon for at least the past 800 years, Supai is perhaps the most isolated village in the United States. Although its just 13 km from the nearest road, no cars can reach it. The only way to get to it is to take a helicopter or to hike or ride a mule along the Havasupai Trail. Supai is the only place in the United States where mail is still carried out by mules.

Most drug abusers break the spell of addiction without help The phenomenon of…

Rolf Degen

The phenomenon of “maturing out” has been largely underestimated by medicine

The specter of the rundown junkie who lonesomely kicks the bucket from an overdose in a dirty toilet has, for too long, clouded the thinking about the natural course of addiction. According to a growing research tradition, drug dependency is usually only a temporary phase of life that most addicts finally grow tired of. Sometimes, this neglected “maturing out” is based on a slowly developing change of mind, in other cases on a sudden conversion.

Bioparc Valencia: The Immersive Zoo

Bioparc Valencia is a small (25-acre) zoo in Valencia, Spain, with a large collection of African animals. Unlike your average zoo where animals are locked in cages, the animals in Bioparc Valencia appear to roam freely in the park. But there is no need to be afraid. Bioparc Valencia is what is called an “immersive zoo” – a concept of immersing visitors into the animals’ habitat and not vice versa. But this isn’t another Chinese zoo where visitors are locked in cages at the back of a trailer as it makes its way through the park. In Bioparc Valencia, there are no cages, instead using rivers, ponds, streams and rocks to separate visitors from the animals. Here, the barriers are practically invisible and the animals feel right at home.
—“Visitors are able to get nerve-wrackingly close to the animals — only a small stream separates them. A stream so small that surely the hyenas intently taking in our scent on the other side could easily hop over it,” writes travel-blog HolaValencia.

Going in Style: 1920… We’ll leave it to our erudite commenters to elaborate on the party taking place in the background, a sort of Beaux-Arts photobomb involving a naked lady and a horse.

Washington, D.C., circa 1920. “H.E.F. in Packard at L.O.C.” National Photo proprietor Herbert E. French in an enormous touring car (note the multiple lamps and lanterns) outside the Library of Congress, the eventual repository for his company’s vast archive of photographs.
