Pela primeira vez na história foi realizado um estudo completo e de longo prazo para avaliar o efeito que um transgênico e um agrotóxico podem provocar sobre a saúde pública. Os resultados são alarmantes e estão sintetizados nesse documentário.
O estudo, realizado pela equipe do professor Gilles-Eric Séralini, da Universidade de Caen, na França, foi publicado ontem (19/09) em uma das mais importantes revistas científicas internacionais de toxicologia alimentar, a Food and Chemical Toxicology.
It’s not a secret we love robots here at BLR, so we wanted them to be the heroes in our latest promo clip. Luxury cars with powerful engines to drive through roads under severe speed restrictions, cable TV that allows us to pay to watch all kind of sports, all from our comfortable sofa, and of course, hyper expensive cell phones that do almost everything but making a decent phone call.
Yes, our happiness is based on things we don’t need and governed by entities we don’t control, so what? Sit down and turn on the tv!
The robots were taken from real Japanese robot model kits, and they now hold a privileged position in our freak museum. The bad guy spits real smoke out of its mouth! The environment is made of cardboard houses that were integrated with the help of camera tweaks. It all serves to the purpose of creating a dumb homogeneous atmosphere in which we’re defined by what we’ve got, that is, the same lame things.
Don’t take the message too seriously. This is a promo video we’ve done to laugh at ourselves. We all have an i-diot inside, and it’s so fun!

On November 29, 2013, Grand Canyon experienced a rare temperature inversion, where cool air rising from the bottom of the canyon meets warm air from above, creating a layer of fog in the canyon. This happens about once or twice a year, but this particular inversion was a 10 year event, with clear skies above and the canyon full nearly to the brim with fog.

The Madman and the Cathedral is a documentary about one man’s dream to build a cathedral.
In 1963, Don Justo Gallego Martinez laid the foundation stone of a cathedral. A peasant, with no architectural training, no construction experience and no tools, he turned his back on the fields and started building. He had no blueprints and no planning permission. He had not even seen many cathedrals. All he had was the unshakeable conviction that God wanted him to build a cathedral.
Locals took little notice of the ragged pile of bricks and the small man patiently piecing together his dream. He was just “el loco de la iglesia”(the madman of the church), their very own Don Quixote. Don Quixote wanted to bring about a revival of the age of chivalry in his own century, Don Justo wanted to bring back the forgotten ideals of the Saints and Martyrs. Don Quixote charges windmills; Don Justo builds a cathedral.
Nearly fifty years later, the shell of the building is complete, covering the 20x50 metre plot. Some 8,000m2 have been built or are underway. They include a complex ensemble of cloisters, offices, lodgings and a library. There is even a dome (modelled on St Peters) rising to some 40 metres and some 12 metres in diameter.
The ragged pile of bricks has evolved into one of the most striking and baffling architectural accomplishments of our time.
Justo is now in his eighties and the cathedral is only two-thirds finished. The miracle of his achievement is matched only by the miracle he needs to finish his project.
