AquaBurn is an award-winning documentary film by director Bill Breithaupt showcasing "The Floating World" theme of the 2002 Burning Man Festival. AquaBurn features many of the incredible Burning Man art installations, the imagination and originality that went into their creation, and the artists who conceived them. Unlike conventional documentaries on the Burning Man Festival, AquaBurn captures the true feeling and excitement of the event itself, transporting the viewer to a hot, dusty wonderland without ever leaving home. AquaBurn introduces you to artists like Peter Hudson, who created Sisyphish, a life-size 3D zoetrope of a swimmer, Nate Smith, who conjures a 20 ft. fire tornado, David Best & his crew’s 78 ft. Temple of Joy - a tribute to 9/11, Deirdre DeFranceaux’s beautiful sculpture of singing sirens, Shane Rogers and the Sky People show off their sky diving skills over Black Rock City, Terry Shreck’s glowing metal sculpture Beacon, and Kiki Petit’s incredible fire waterfall Egeria. Officially beginning on Baker Beach in 1986, Burning Man began on an impulse when Larry Harvey & Jerry James created a man out of wood and burned him on the beach. Various myths and rumors circulate about what the man represented: a love lost, a memorial to Larry’s father, etc. Larry insists it is not what it represented that matters, but that the act of burning the effigy was the “first recorded form of what we now call ‘radical self-expression’ ” (from Burning Man’s MySpace page) a concept that became his gift to the world. Others joined him for the burn on the beach, bringing their influence and arts, having their own moments of “radical self-expression”. The crowd grew each year, and in 1990 San Francisco police stepped in to halt the expanding event, and a new location was obtained in the Nevada desert. Now, over 45,000 people travel to Burning Man Festival at Block Rock City in the Nevada desert to participate in an experience that is unlike any found in modern society. For one week in late August they become part of an experimental community, which challenges its members to express themselves and rely on themselves to a degree that is not normally encountered in day-to-day life. They are to provide their own food, water and shelter, enduring sweltering temperatures often above 110 degrees and overwhelming sandstorms. In the face of such a formidable environment the society flourishes. There is no commerce, Burning Man is built upon a gift economy mentality. No commercialism, no vending, no money at the Burning Man Festival. Gifting is part of the experience. And an experience it is. All around the playa large art installations challenge the elements, rising above the horizon. Theme camps are abundant, each offering their creativity to passers-by in the form of body painting to grilled cheese sandwiches. Burning Man is the catalyst for boundary pushing artists & scientists. MIT Press Journal article on Nate Smith & Kiki Petit’s projects. People are beginning to take it seriously as an arts festival, rather than just a bunch of crazy hippies partying in the desert. Dr. Megavolt On Saturday night the man is burned. All the members of this unusual city convene in the center, watching as the 40 foot structure is ignited. As the flames burn higher and the Man falls, each takes away his own memories and experiences. One would be wary of truly being oneself, even in such an uninhibited environment, if the threat of exploitation of one's art for any commercial purposes was present. It is for this reason that film and video cameras are forbidden without permission at Burning Man. All video cameras must be registered and tagged. If you are considering filming for professional purposes, you must have a commercial agreement on file with the media team prior to your arrival onsite. Even with an agreement on file, you still must have permission from Burning Man (the Burning Man Organization) to use any images commercially. This is one reason why AquaBurn is so unique and special. Not only is it a Burning Man sanctioned film, it is also highly entertaining, stunningly beautiful and shockingly hip. It has become the most popular Burning Man film with festival attendees, as well as general public.

La notte del Venerdì Santo, antiche confraternite cattoliche rinnovano una vecchia tradizione. I confratelli, incappucciati, sfilano in processione nelle strade della Penisola Sorrentina, portando i simboli della Passione di Cristo, per commemorare la Madonna Addolorata e la sua disperata ricerca del figlio. Le “confraternite” o “arciconfraternite” erano, e sono, sodalizi religiosi con fini caritatevoli, sorte per lo più nel periodo vicereale (quando il Regno di Napoli era governato da viceré, prima spagnoli, poi austriaci, 1503-1734). Tra i loro scopi, quello di assistere ammalati, condannati e prigionieri, e di organizzare i funerali. In un’epoca di particolare fervore religioso, quindi, dovette essere naturale che cortei di confratelli accompagnassero le effigi religiose durante la settimana della passione. I cappucci assicuravano l’anonimato, prevenendo orgoglio e imbarazzo tra compaesani che si aiutavano l’un l’altro. Oggi continuano ad esistere, svolgendo attività benefiche in maniera più o meno visibile, ma le processioni del Venerdì Santo sono il loro principale impegno.

*******www.instablogs****/ Mexican military patrols Tijuana In the government's latest effort to flush out corrupt police, Mexican Military Troops removed 500 local police officers and took over law enforcement in Tijuana, where drug hitmen have killed over 220 people, including children, in the past month. The army aims eventually to suspend the remaining 1,500 officers and gradually rid the Tijuana force of corrupt police where some officers openly work as hitmen for drug gangs. Widespread corruption among Mexico's badly paid police is undermining President Felipe Calderon's army-backed war on drug gangs. Mexico must continue purging corrupt officers while increasing pay and incentives to loyal, non corrupt officials. Surge in racist crimes after Obama victory Barack Obama's historic election as America's first black president has led to a surge of racist incidents across the United States. Since the closing weeks of the campaign, there has been a real and significant, white backlash break out which is only getting worse. Hundreds of incidents of cross burnings, death threats, Obama effigies hanging in nooses to ugly racial incidents in schoolyards across the country are getting reported with increased regularity. The increase in racist incidents can be attributed to the non-white immigration and rising unemployment. Add to all of that the idea of a black man in the White House and you have a very significant number of whites who feel as if they've lost everything, that the country built by their forefathers has somehow been stolen from them. It seems that whites within America have begun experiencing identity crisis. Ballot empowers women Usually, the word Kargil brings back memories of the India-Pakistan conflict of 1999 when Pakistani intruders walked miles into Indian Territory leading to skirmishes which gradually grew into what came to be known later as Kargil war. Amid it all, Kargil district stands out as a shining example of empowerment of women at the grassroots level, by way of enfranchisement. Despite sub zero temperature enthusiasm of voters was high as they were seen in long queues in front of polling stations hours before the polling started. The reports indicated that women in traditional colorful attire out-numbered the men at the polling stations. The district has more female voters than male voters. Perhaps no other district in the entire north India, in any of the states like Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh or Uttaranchal enjoys this distinction. There is still hope for women’s empowerment in J&K through ballot. *******www.instablogs****/
