20 Of The Most Iconic Photographs And The Cameras That Captured Them

One of the most iconic photos in history is, without a doubt, The Burning Monk. We’ve all seen this photo in school books, on the news, and in most-famous photo lists. The monk’s name was Thích Quảng Đức. He self-immolated in Saigon on June 11, 1963, to protest the South Vietnamese government’s persecution of Buddhists. The person who captured this selfless sacrifice for the greater good was photographer, Malcolm Browne. He passed away in 2012 but his legacy lives on. “I was thinking only about the fact it was a self-illuminated subject that required an exposure of about, oh say, f10 or whatever it was, I don’t really remember. I was using a cheap Japanese camera by the name of …

Sir Paul McCartney to write a ‘wonderful’ musical

Lee Hall, who wrote Billy Elliot and the recent Elton John biopic Rocketman, is penning the script and collaborating with Sir Paul on the lyrics. “It’s A Wonderful Life is my favourite film,” said the Tony Award-winner. “It has absolutely everything – comedy, pathos and a rare humanity which has touched generation after generation. “To give it a life on the stage is an immense privilege in itself, but to do with Paul McCartney is off the scale. “Paul’s wit, emotional honesty and melodic brilliance brings a whole new depth and breadth to the classic tale.

What Is Airplane Turbulence, And Can It Cause A Plane To Crash?

Turbulence – the stomach-churning, panic-sparking, coffee-spiller of the skies – what exactly are you? And how scared of you should I be?  Even for seasoned jet-setters who are comfortable sitting in a cramped aluminum tube flying through the sky at 10,000 meters (33,000 feet) next to a screaming child, turbulence can be an unnerving experience. As you might have seen in the news this week, there was an especially terrifying story of around 37 people being injured due to extreme turbulence on an Air Canada flight from Vancouver to Sydney. However, these occurrences are rare and nothing to lose sleep over.  In simplest terms, turbulence in an aircraft is like hitting a pothole in your car. Instead of a crumbling tarmac, the plane is coming into contact …

But parents said one application of sun cream before school is not enough. The charity Tenovus Cancer Care says one blistering sun burn as a child can double the risk of skin cancer in later life, and called for the Welsh …

This Weird Little Worm Is One Of The Loudest Creatures In The Sea

For all its tranquility, the sea is a surprisingly noisy place. There are singing whales, pistol shrimps that produce sonic booms, and rowdy shoals of loud-mouthed fish. But of creatures great and small dwelling in our oceans, few come more raucous than a strange species of worm that is no longer than your big toe.  The marine worms, Leocratides kimuraorum, can be found living inside sponges off the coast of Japan at depths of over 100 meters (330 feet). As reported in the journal Current Biology, a team of marine biologist from Kyoto University and the University of Alberta discovered this tiny worm is able to produce a popping noise that reaches around 157 decibels. For context, human hearing starts to get uncomfortable …

Why Acosta absolutely had to go

(CNN)Sometimes no deal is better than a bad deal. That is perhaps one of the most important lessons that now former Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta should absorb as his career appears to be crashing and burning in the wake of the “Lolita Express,” the nickname accorded to Jeffrey Epstein’s now-infamous corporate jet. The reason is that pedophiles are well known to be repeat offenders. Acosta was an experienced enough prosecutor back then to know that any guilty plea likely to put a pedophile back in circulation where he can damage the lives of even more innocent children is most probably a very bad deal. It is also the kind of plea destined to rebound and destroy the prosecutor’s own reputation …
