observation in the primary forest in their wild habitat
Great Commercial from The Observer
This is a personal, life observation intended to be humorous. Please don't give me tips on how to be more expressive and, no, I don't actually wish I was more insecure. I'm also learning some new editing software - hence the lack of my usual titles.
I was just staring at the Singapore Flyer last week from the 46th storey of One Raffles Place, wondering how best to film the the whole observation wheel if they were to have fireworks there.
Strangely, the next moment, I was invited to board the giant ferris wheel for a videography assignment.
The first thing that came in to my mind was to shoot in high definition, Full HD in HDV, using my Sony HDR-FX7 High Definition Camcorder.

Leros "Psychiatric Hospital". Filmed in 1995 by achilleasv.
The Asylum of Leros (Colony of Mentally Ill) was established in 1959, taking over the military installations left on the Greek island by the Italians from the Second World War.
The purpose was to contain all psychiatric patients from all Greek mental health instituitions, who were deemed untreatable, to one single confinement space.
The asylum grew rapidly as "difficult" patients were shipped to Leros and by the 1980s as many as 4,000 patients were held there.
Political prisoners had also been incarcerated there, during the military dictatorship in Greece (Greek junta 1967-1974).
The staff were not doctors or nurses and had no medical training. They were local islanders and were used as guards.
The inmates were systematically beaten, even tortured and crushed of whatever sensibilities they once had.
In the 80s Leros' asylum has received significant journalistic attention.
In September of 1989, the London Observer published details of horrific conditions at the Leros asylum, describing it a "concentration camp".
In 1990 the BBC filmed inside the asylum. The documentary "Island of Outcasts" (Channel 4) brought attention to these horrendous human rights abuses.
As Leros' conditions generally mirror those of the nation's other public mental hospitals, the last twenty years the psychiatric care system in Greece is undergoing a transformation of its service network, propelled to a great extent by recommendations and funding from the European Union. The new direction is toward deinstitutionalisation and a community-care approach.
However, twenty years since the beginning of the psychiatric reform in Greece, there is a threat for people with mental health problems to return in public mental hospitals
due to severe financial problems of Non Governmental Organisations (which operate the majority of rehabilitation units) as the Greek Ministry of Health and Social Solidarity is unable to correspond to its obligations.
Hundreds of guests attended an event featuring U.S. Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.) and California's Lt. Governor John Garamendi and Northrop Grumman Corporation's (NYSE:NOC) chairman and CEO Ronald D. Sugar to highlight the contributions Earth observation satellites are making to global climate change monitoring. The event was held at the company's Space Technology sector facility in Redondo Beach, Calif.
Northrop Grumman has a long heritage building Earth observing satellites and sensors, starting with Explorer VI, the first satellite to take a picture of the Earth from space. More recently, it built the Aqua and Aura Earth Observation Satellites for NASA, and is currently building the next-generation low-Earth orbit operational satellite system.

Have you seen a tiger this upclose?
He yawns, winks, ignores us, growls, observes us, settles down then looks at us askance. Distance - 12 feet.
Tyavarekoppa Lion and Tiger Safari is located in the Shimoga district of the state of Karnataka, India. This tiger yawns and ignores us then casts a sly
glance at us. He's nice enough not to eat us though we are at a 10 ft distance and he's not in a cage.

The old concepts of time were substantially different from modern ones. Before the 13th - 14th century the devices for time measurement were a rarity and a luxury. Even the scientists didnt always possess them. The Englishman Valcherius was lamenting the lack of a clock that afflicted the precision of his observations of a lunar eclipse in 1091. The clocks common for mediaeval Europe were sundials, hourglasses, and water clocks, or clepsydrae. However, sundials only were of use when the weather was good, and the clepsydrae remained a scarcity In the end of the 9th century a.d., candles were widely used for timekeeping. The English King Alfred took them along on his journeys and ordered them to be burned one after the other. The same manner of timekeeping was used in the 13th-14th century, in the reign of Charles V, for instance.The monks kept count of time by the amount of holy book pages or psalms they could read in between two observations of the sky For the majority, the main timekeeping medium was the tolling of the church bells. One is to bear in mind that astronomical observations require a chronometer that possesses a second hand, while we learn that even after the discovery and the propagation of mechanical chronometers in Europe, they had been lacking the minute hand till 1550
