A ‘Ring of Fire’ solar eclipse is a rare phenomenon that occurs when the moon’s orbit is at its apogee: the part of its orbit farthest away from the Earth. Because the moon is so far away, it seems smaller than normal to the human eye. The result is that the moon doesn’t entirely block out our view of the sun, but leaves an “annulus,” or ring of sunlight glowing around it. Hence the term  “annular” eclipse rather than a “total” eclipse.

Some facts about Hummingbirds
Hummingbirds are unique amongst birds because of their small size (2 - 20 g or 0.07 - 0.7 oz ). 
With the exception of insects, hummingbirds have the highest metabolism rate of any animal on earth: elevated average body temperature (approx. 40° C or 104° F), rapid heart rate (up to 1,260 beats per minute), and high breathing rate.
They also have the largest brain (4.2% of the total body weight), the largest heart and the largest breast and flight muscles (30% of its total body mass) in proportion to body size than any other bird
Hummingbirds are the only living birds that can rotate its wings in a circle, allowing it to fly both forwards and backwards; fly up or down, move sideways, or hover in one spot.
Like other birds, they have no sense of smell.
Their feet are weak and are only used perching.

Nadir Tharani

Country: Tanzania

Style: Expressionist

Medium: Ink on paper

Fun Fact: He’s also an architect

Quote:

All the paintings and poems, the short and long stories, the songs and melodies, all the seminars, meetings and workshops this year and the next and the year after, all this preening and prodding will not change the world.

Paintings

A series of drawings on the arbitrary detention, harassment, beating, torture, rape and imprisonment of those who are seen as not conforming to the strictures of power – from fruit hawkers, children at school, voters, passengers, dreamers, strollers, to those who seek a more equitable life for all.

These Positions of Power, this alignment of the human body imposed by those who exert power, are postures that embody power relations in their raw form. They probably came into being with the foundation of states – though their visual depiction or representations are more apparent in recent times.

The numbering relates to Article 9 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 10 December 1948: No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.

The Last Japanese Mermaids 

For nearly two thousand years, Japanese women living in coastal fishing villages made a remarkable livelihood hunting the ocean for oysters and abalone, a sea snail that produces pearls. They are known as Ama. The few women left still make their living by filling their lungs with air and diving for long periods of time deep into the Pacific ocean, with nothing more than a mask and flippers.

In the mid 20th century, Iwase Yoshiyuki returned to the fishing village where he grew up and photographed these women when the unusual profession was still very much alive. After graduating from law school, Yoshiyuki had been given an early Kodak camera and found himself drawn to the ancient tradition of the ama divers in his hometown. His photographs are thought to be the only comprehensive documentation of the near-extinct tradition in existence
