1. Rodney Mullen, 2013 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony


    from Almost Skateboards / Added

    Fittingly inducted into Skateboarding's Hall of Fame the same year as Alan Gelfand (Invented the ollie on vert), a humble Rodney would be more than worthy of this honor for his adaptation of the vertical ollie to flatground alone. The freestyle "ollie pop" on flat ground in 1982 is probably the single most influential trick in skateboarding history-the cataclysm for an entirely new dimension, which literally got skateboarding off the ground- then later up curbs, over benches, and onto handrails. Most amazingly, however, for Rodney, this milestone accomplishment was only one of probably hundreds of other equally pivotal innovations he contributed between 1982 up through 1990 that would ultimately become the very building blocks of street skating. The "magic flip" in '83 would become the kick flip, the "helipop" around that same time would open the door to nollies (popping the board off the nose), which then in turn would eventually lead to the rise of the switch-stance. The 360 flip would come a few years later, along with the ollie impossible, the heel flip, backside flip, double flip, ollie grabs, dark slides, and onward. Rodney Mullen essentially build modern skateboarding from the ground up then passed on his creations for the entire world to continue evolving.

                    This webinar gives an overview of the different players involved with polar research, the different types of research that is being conducted in polar regions, and the key acronyms decoded. This video is part of an online lecture series coordinated by APECS, US NSF ARCSS Thermokarst Project, and the University of Canterbury to help early career polar researchers navigate their careers. Presenter: Dr. Hugues Lantuit - International Permafrost Association and Alfred Wegener Institute, Potsdam, Germany I am a permafrost researcher originally from France. Upon completion of my French Baccalauréat, I started a Geography/Geology degree in Paris. I graduated from Université Paris 7 with a maîtrise in Physical geography and moved to Montréal, Canada to get a masters. I stayed three years at McGill University, and graduated with an MSc that had to do with the quantification of coastal erosion on Arctic coasts using remote sensing and photogrammetry. I then got an offer to come to the Alfred Wegener Institute in Potsdam to start a PhD and took it. I completed my PhD in 2008 on the impacts of climate change on Arctic coasts. My current research involves the use of geospatial, geochemical and sedimentological tools to quantify and characterize the coastal erosion occurring in permafrost regions. I am also running the secretariat of the International Permafrost Association, an exciting job for an early career researcher.

I also take part in some projects in the polar world related to specific science issues (Arctic Coastal Dynamics, SAON) and to the promotion of young scientists activities (PYRN, APECS, WAYS).
