Damon Langlois est un designer basé en Colombie-Britannique, dont l’une des spécialités est la sculpture sur sable. Il s’est récemment fait remarquer pour sa sculpture incroyablement réaliste intitulée « Liberty Crumbling » représentant Abraham Lincoln se couvrant le visage avec sa main, créée lors du Texas Sandfest, le plus grand concours de sculpture sur sable des Etats-Unis. La sculpture, arrivée en première place, est en fait une reproduction de la statue de marbre datant de 1920 qui se trouve dans le Lincoln Mémorial : on y voit Abraham Lincoln, assis sur une plateforme en ruine, semblant exaspéré de la situation.

Fujifilm has just officially announced its next medium format camera, the GFX 100. The latest GFX, the new model joins the GFX 50S and GFX 50R, released in 2016 and 2018, respectively. The GFX 100 introduces some major leaps over the prior models, including a much higher resolution, in-body image stabilization, and much faster performance. It will be available starting on June 27th for $9,999.95.
Unlike Fujifilm’s prior medium format bodies, the GFX 100 features a full-size design, meaning it has an integrated vertical grip and a much larger stance than the typical mirrorless camera. It’s much closer in size to Canon’s EOS-1D X than even Fujifilm’s own GFX 50R. Inside that hulking, three-pound frame is...

Indians love song and dance, and Bollywood is a testament to that. But the love for music is so prevalent that even the elections in the country did not go without some rhythm and beat.
From the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to the main opposition party, the Indian National Congress, to even the regional Samajwadi Party, many political parties in India launched their own music videos. Several songs were even produced by fans of these parties.
As the Election Commission of India counts votes today (May 23), here’s a look back at all the catchy and foot-tapping numbers that went a long way in getting voters’ attention:

India’s perch on top as the world’s fastest growing major economy is unlikely to be challenged soon.
Even as the Chinese economy cools due to global trade tensions, India’s GDP growth will hover near 7.5% by 2020, compared with 7.25% in 2019, says a recent report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). The Paris-based think tank expects China’s economy to clock 6% growth in 2020. As a result of the escalating US-China trade war, the economic output in both countries is estimated to be 0.2-0.3% lower in the current financial year than it would otherwise have been.
Hence, the Indian economy’s lead over China, in terms of growth, is widening.  
This comes as good news for...

More than a century after the malaria parasite was first discovered in Algeria by a French physician, the country is now rid of the deadly disease.
After last reporting a malaria case in 2013, Algeria has joined 37 other countries globally that have been certified malaria-free by the World Health Organization (WHO). Algeria becomes the second African country to be certified malaria-free following Mauritius in 1973. In Lesotho, Seychelles and La Réunion, the other African territories declared free of the disease, malaria either never existed or disappeared without specific measures.
WHO says French physician Dr Charles Louis Alphonse Laveran discovered the malaria parasite in Algeria in 1880. By the 1960s...

The Indian election commission is battling a crisis of credibility.
The body, which “administers elections to the Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha, state legislative assemblies in India, and the offices of the president and vice-president,” as its website says, is facing a barrage of problems chipping away at its aura of impartiality.
Founded in 1950, the election commission has traditionally been highly respected for its institutional integrity and impeccable handling of such as a massive exercise as the Indian election.
However, right from holding the 2019 elections in seven phases during peak summer to allegedly extending a series of waivers to the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), many of its decisions have...

The Sundarbans—a vast swath of mangrove where the Ganges river meets the Bay of Bengal—is a wild place to live. Those brave enough to work here, many of them extracting a honey so delicious it’s been dubbed “liquid gold,” others fishing the region’s rich waterways, face near constant threat from the coastal forest’s preeminent inhabitant: the Bengal Tiger.
Rising sea levels and shrinking habitats, the dual menace of climate change, is making things worse—driving tigers and humans ever closer to each other. Increasingly, both must fight for their lives. Yet despite all these natural threats, the people living in this region fear even more something else entirely: politics.

The project is expected to be complete in time to be used at the Consumer Electronics Show in January 2021, LVCVA told me in March.

The aircraft is designed to fill a role known as “loyal wingman” — imagined as a low-cost platform that would be controlled by a parent aircraft to accomplish a variety of tasks, such as flying ahead to scout out terrain, or absorb enemy fire in the event that they’re attacked. The Air Force is reportedly talking with defense manufacturers Boeing and Lockheed Martin, which manufactures the fighter jets, about integrating the platforms.

The New Federalist and its German sister edition Treffpunkt Europa look at their demands – today's contribution: The European Parliament should have the right of initiative!

Whether it was home-built from scraps or one of the various commercial versions that have popped over up over the years, there’s an excellent chance that the average Hackaday reader spent at least a couple of their more formative summers flying water rockets.

Last June, popular ‘pirate’ IPTV service SET TV went offline after being sued by DISH Network and encryption partner NagraStar. In a Florida court, the defendants were accused of creating and selling subscriptions to the SET TV service which, among other things, offered numerous television channels that were unlawfully obtained from DISH’s satellite service and retransmitted to customers. The $20-per-month platform had offered its subscribers a package of 500 live channels, including on-demand content and PPV broadcasts, sometimes via pre-configured hardware devices. Last November that case ended in DISH and NagraStar’s favor, with the former awarded statutory damages of $90,199,000 ($500 for each of...

When I went to a hacker camp in the Netherlands in February I was expecting to spend a few days in a comfortable venue with a bunch of friends, drink some beer, see a chiptune gig, and say “Ooh!” a lot at the exciting projects people brought along. I did all of those things, but I also opened the door to something unexpected. The folks from RevSpace in the Hague brought along their portable forge, and before long I found myself working a piece of hot rebar while wearing comically unsuitable clothing.

Carly Rae Jepsen “Everything He Needs”
Carly Rae Jepsen has made “having a crush” her brand through rigorous determination – she’s barely ever off-message. Even the darker and more complicated feelings that bubble up in her songs are part of a fantasy of romance – it’s the way rom-coms always need a bit of drama and tension in the lead-up to make the sappy parts work the way they ought to. This makes some sense of why her modest but intensely devoted audience tends to be young adults rather than teens – the idealized melodramatic love she sells is a regressive notion, it’s about being an adult who is fully aware of how disappointing this stuff gets IRL and wishing it could all have the...

Analogue TV signals are a beautiful exercise in order and synchronisation, in that as the white dot on your old CRT TV back in the day traced its way across the glass it would have been doing so in faithful obedience to the corresponding electron beam in the camera at the studio. But a camera with a lens and light-sensitive scanning camera tube wouldn’t have been the only way of generating a picture. The flying-spot scanner drew a raster over its subject — usually celluloid film — with a white dot of light and recorded the result with a single photocell to produce a video signal. The ever resourceful [Niklas Roy] has built one using a video projector.
In this scanner the “dot” is a square of white...

Computer games have been around about as long as computers have. And though it may be hard to believe, Zork, a text-based adventure game, was the Fortnite of its time. But Zork is more than that. For portability and size reasons, Zork itself is written in Zork Implementation Language (ZIL), makes heavy use of the brand-new concept of object-oriented programming, and runs on a virtual machine. All this back in 1979. They used every trick in the book to pack as much of the Underground Empire into computers that had only 32 kB of RAM.

This amount of effort isn’t strictly necessary for older video game systems though, and homebrew developers are quite often able to develop entire games singlehandedly for classic systems. In the past it would have taken some special software, programming knowledge, and possibly hardware, but now anyone can build games for the original Game Boy with minimal barriers of entry.
