Pollution in China the World’s Worst

The expeditious growth of industry in China over the last decade has been disastrous for the country’s environment. China is currently the number one producer of carbon dioxide in the world and hundreds of thousands of people die a premature death each year thanks to pollution.

Even with new regulations on waste disposal, air and water pollution continues to rise. Often, factories, chemical plants and mills dump waste directly into waterways and chemicals flow from farms down into the soil and watersheds. Rivers have become choked with algae and slick with oil, while thousands of dead fish continue to wash ashore in some areas.

Orphaned baby seals crowd sanctuary in Netherlands

Fierce storms which ripped through the northern coast of the Netherlands have produced an inordinate number of seal orphans in the past year. Rescue teams have retrieved hundreds of the baby seals which are being housed and cared for at the Pieterburen Seal Creche (formerly known as the Seal Rehabilitation and Research Center) which is currently home to 360 seals. Once the seals are healthy and able to fend for themselves, they will be returned to the ocean from whence they came. via Hungeree

Daily Inspirations no. 337

As almost everyday, you may look forward another dose of fresh inspirations .). Fans of architecture and history may check the Construction of Manhattan’s Flatiron Building photo. In the same section there are two awesome colorful fashion photos by Kristian Schuller and Chrystel Plischke-Livolsi. Worth checking out. From the illustrations my pick would be the Plum portrait illustration by Debra and probably the portrait by Lori Early .. although kind of like the Sophie Sees artwork by Aly Fell as well. Digital artworks are not staying behind … there is another piece of art by Jarek Kubicki and original Jesus creation by Ben Heine. Of course there are some freebies in today’s collection as well. If you’re looking for cool business card designs, do not hesitate and download the Psd Business Card Mock-Up Vol 2 by Pixeden. Enjoy!

Adorable Photos by Elena Karneeva

These sweet and cheerful photos were taken by children’s photographer from Moscow Elena Karneeva. Each shot, highly professional executed by the way, give you really pleasant emotions since photographer adores her work. “When photographing children is important to dive into the world of childhood, to anticipate and feel the movement of the child, understand his motivation. To be a children’s photographer – so learn to look at the world through the eyes of a child. And most importantly – do not spare the time, after a successful picture is often necessary to wait for hours”. With these snowy photos we want to wish you a Happy New Year! See you next year!

Temporary Museum (Lake) is a curvaceous form set at the end of a meandering path in a nature reserve north west of Amsterdam. Like the ephemeral transitions of the autumnal season it inhabits, the gallery, which opened on mid august 2010, had a lifespan of only six weeks.

Inspired by the automatic drawings of Dadaist Jean Arp – in which the hand is allowed to move instinctively across the paper – Anne Holtrop began the work with sketches through which he intended to use chance in a way to ‘discover form’…
