The World’s Best Japanese Whisky

190 The Worlds Best Japanese Whisky
A worker sweeps leaves below a historic spirit still at Suntory Holdings’ Yamazaki Distillery in Shimamoto town, Osaka prefecture, near Kyoto, December 1, 2014. Nestled at the foot of wooded hills near the ancient Japanese capital of Kyoto, the Yamazaki whisky distillery feels a long way from the northerly glens of Scotch’s spiritual home. Despite its unlikely birthplace, last month Yamazaki’s Single Malt Sherry Cask 2013 trumped more than a thousand challengers to be named the world’s best whisky by leading critic Jim Murray in his Whisky Bible 2015.

“The Last Iceberg” by Camille Seaman

116 “The Last Iceberg” by Camille Seaman
Documenting the effects of climate change first hand over the past eight years, Camille Seaman fears we may be on the road to the last iceberg. Photographing the enormous frozen floats at both poles for the past eight years, the Californian adventurer has seen the receding ice shelves and experienced the changing warmer weather. Feeling that her intimate and emotional work documents a snapshot of history, Camille presents her series “The Last Iceberg” as a study of what she sees as the personality of each huge iceberg.

Drawing parallels with the famous novel, “The Last of the Mohicans”, Camille, 42, wonders whether these unique, almost alien natural features will become a thing of the past or part of nature’s renewal processThese are the stunning images of some of the polar ice caps most endangered regions. Camille Seamans shots include poignant images of the likes of polar bears, penguins and melting ice shelves. The works feature in Camilles latest book, “Melting Away”, which the photographer has been working on since 2003. Release on December 2nd, the book features images from the Arctic and Antarctic between 2003 and 2011. (Photos by Camille Seaman/Barcroft Media)

South African Academy Trains Anti-Poaching Dogs

“Venom and Killer. These are members of a furry breed of anti-poaching operatives, dogs that can detect a whiff of hidden rhino horn in a suspect’s vehicle or follow the spoor of armed poachers in South Africa’s besieged wildlife parks. Dogs are a small part of an increasingly desperate struggle to curb poaching in Africa, where tens of thousands of elephants have been slaughtered in recent years to meet a surging appetite for ivory in Asia, primarily China. In South Africa, poachers have killed more than 1,000 rhinos this year, surpassing the 2013 record. Countries and conservationists are trying more robust patrols and surveillance, community programs and other tactics against criminal gangs that sometimes benefit from official corruption. As the conflict rages, elite dogs and handlers are drilling at an anti-poaching academy northwest of Johannesburg. The course prepares canine units to find firearms or contraband, track suspects in the undergrowth and abseil in harnesses from helicopters in pursuit of poachers. Dogs and handlers learn to trust each other and fine tune a relationship balancing control and aggression”. – Christopher Torchia via The Associated Press.
