How to stay safe around mooseMoose: They’re easily among the top three of nearly every hiker’s must-see list in places like Canada and Alaska. They are massive (weighing up to 1,600 pounds and standing over six-and-a-half feet tall), hairy animals that appear to be so awkward and friendly that many assume they couldn’t possibly be aggressive. But that’s not always the case. In fact, there are more moose attacks in Alaska than black bear and grizzly attacks combined. There’s good news though: violent encounters with the largest member of the deer family can usually be avoided.4

The inconvenient truth about Burger King’s ‘reduced methane’ WhopperOn Tuesday, the fast food chain announced the launch of a “methane-reduced” patty, complete with a country music-powered video of children extolling the virtues of reducing methane. The company’s claim is that, by adding lemongrass to cow feed, they’ve been able to reduce up to 33 percent of methane emissions. But there are definitely some cow-veats to the messaging.3
Bristol Pub Named After Edward Colston Renamed 'Ye Olde Pubby Mcdrunkface'A Colston Arms Pub in Bristol, named after slave trader Edward Colston with the Royal African Company, has temporarily rebranded as 'Ye Olde Pubby Mcdrunkface'.

65+ Being old in rural JapanPia Kieninger and Isabelle Prochaska-Meyer are scientists. In an empirical study “Aged communities and active ageing - A case study of rural villages in the Japanese Alps” (funded by the OeNB, JSPS, OeAD, DIJ and ÖFG) they investigated the daily life of elderly in rural Japan and spend thereto 4 months on site (2013 and 2014). The documentary is an outcome of the research (funded by TIFO). Short Synopsis: Demographic change - ageing of society and depopulation of peripheral regions - is affecting many industrialized countries. Japan, with a proportion of currently 25 % elderly of 65 years and/or older, is in this regard a forerunner worldwide. Based on the ethnographic research project „Aged communities and active ageing - A case study of rural villages in the Japanese Alps”, conducted by scientists from the University of Vienna, this documentary focuses on the daily life and challenges in three overaged villages in the Japanese Alps. The story portraits two single-living seniors: the 84-year-old Shimako, a former farmer wife, with a husky deep voice, who still grows vegetables. She regularly meets her neighbors for tea chats and joins the village choir and gymnastics course. Her biggest passion however is gateball, a very popular senior team-sport in Japan, similar to croquet. And there is the 93-year-old Genichi, the oldest man in his village with driving license, who hates sport but loves composing short poems (tanka) on daily events. As he enjoys his freedom in old age, deciding for himself when to get up and when to work, he refuses to live with his son´s family. Also he still cultivates his agricultural field for self-subsistence. In between the portraits, the narrator introduces general information about the current situation of rural life in Japan and of the three municipalities, regarding local supply, mobility, welfare and communal activities. ____________ Film details: Country of production / coproduction: Austria Original Title: 65+ Alt sein im ländlichen Japan English Title: 65+ Being old in rural Japan Language: German (narrator) and Japanese Subtitle: English Year of production: 2014 Runtime: 35:08 Colour: Colour Shooting Format: HD, Stereo Camera: Panasonic HC-V757 & Canon EOS 70D Frame Rate: 25p Aspect ratio: 18:9 Original format: AVCHD Video Signal: PAL Sound: Stereo Film type: Documentary Cutting program: Adobe Premiere CC ____________ Directors: Pia Regina Kieninger and Isabelle Prochaska-Meyer Editing: Stefan Nutz Narrator: Andreas Danzer Music: Chika Okabe ____________ Public/Festival Screenings: 07.

Artist Agnes Martin – 'Beauty is in Your Mind' | TateShotsAgnes Martin’s restrained yet evocative paintings came from her belief that spiritual inspiration rather than intellect created great work. In this film, which features rare archive footage of the artist in her studio in New Mexico, her art dealer and confidant Arne Glimcher remembers Martin’s philosophical ideas about her work and her rigorous process in developing her paintings. Tate curator Frances Morris also reveals the mathematical precision behind Martin’s abstract masterpieces, and the intense experimentation which led to her signature grids.
