Inside the Demonstrations in Venezuela

To view more photos and videos from the protests in Venezuela, visit the Chacaíto and Plaza Luis Brión location pages or browse the #SOSVenezuela hashtag on Instagram.

On Tuesday, tens of thousands of demonstrators came together in Caracas, Venezuela’s Plaza Luis Brión to voice discontent with the government over crime, the economy and pressures on free speech.

This protest is the latest in a series of demonstrations over the past several weeks, many of which have resulted in violence between protestors and the police. Opposition leader Leopoldo López, the former mayor of Caracas who the government has charged with stoking the violence, made a speech before the crowds in the plaza before turning himself in to the police.

Geek, nerd or just both? This guy has being doing some data analysis and statistics through the streaming and search APIs of Twitter in order to calculate the Pointwise mutual information, a kind of correlation between topics who belong to one or the other of both worlds. Nerdly funny, if you ask me. See more in On “Geek” Versus “Nerd” (Slackpropagation)

Well, maybe this is not precisely beautiful, but it has some kind of internal charm… don’t know, but I think it deserves a place here.

The alkaline water in Lake Natron (Tanzania) has a pH as high as 10.5 and is so caustic it can burn the skin and eyes of animals that aren’t adapted to it.

Nick Brandt tell us in his book, Across the Ravaged Land:

I unexpectedly found the creatures — all manner of birds and bats — washed up along the shoreline of Lake Natron. No one knows for certain exactly how they die, but … the water has an extremely high soda and salt content, so high that it would strip the ink off my Kodak film boxes within a few seconds.

I took these creatures as I found them on the shoreline, and then placed them in ‘living’ positions, bringing them back to ‘life,’ as it were. Reanimated, alive again in death.
