      • Dub Fish: Full Scale SnoCo


        from Mark Horner Added 187 0 0

        Dubstep & salmon jumping? Why not! These are Coho salmon (aka "silvers") jumping at my favorite spot along the Snohomish River in Snohomish, Washington. This video was all shot in mid-to-late September 2012. As for the title: Most of it's a fairly obvious play on words. As for "SnoCo"...it refers to Snohomish + Coho. But it's also a term for referring to Snohomish County. camera: Canon 7D

        • The Water


          from Pro Art Inc Added 1,469 25 6

          Water – the source of life on Earth Water is the most valuable resource on the planet Earth. It is the source of life for every living being on Earth: plants, animals and human beings. All natural waters remain in constant interrelation with the earth’s formations and the atmosphere. Water is able to clean itself thanks to the perpetual motion which provides life on our planet. Water is an ancient symbol of fertility and purity. Leonadro da Vinci said that water is juice of life. In the course of the development of human civilization water has always been used for therapeutic purposes. Water makes up 75% of an animal body weight, 89-90% of a plant weight and human beings consist of water on 80%. The ancient Assyrians, the Chinese, Greeks, Persians, Indians and Babylonians used clean water wound healing and for treatment of various diseases. 70% of water in our body is concentrated within the cells and only 30% is the extracellular water. Water plays a fundamental role in life-sustaining activity of the body. Water for the human body is irreplaceable product, because it is the main building material for our body. It is far more valuable than iron, coal, oil or gas. Dehydration, even slight, leads to unpleasant consequences. Constant shortage of water may lead to such nasty diseases as migraine, stomach ache, allergy, arthritis and asthma. Brain dehydration can cause brain cells enormous stress, because brain on 75% consists of water. Some doctors call water “the disease solvent”. Water is not just a source of human health, but it can be compared to a wave that carries us into the future. The problem is that most people underestimate the possibilities of water. Humanity is the main water consumer. Earlier on there was not a single civilization that was devoid of water on its territory. Water is the distributor and the keeper of solar energy on our planet. It can also be called the main climate creator. There is nothing more valuable or Earth than water. We’ve got used to the surrounding of the beautiful and clean waters, breathtaking waterfalls and quiet lakes that we’ve forgotten the main thing –CARE. Academician Karpinsky after studying the water said: “Water for the planet is like the blood for a man”. We break the natural harmony with the pollution of waters, and it will take many years to restore it. The question arises whether we will be able to show our kids the power and the beauty of water in all its shapes or we will be only able explain everything in words? We should have been started taking care about water purity yesterday and don’t think about it today. Its beauty, utility and purity depend upon every person on its planet. Let’s save this precious vessel of life!

                • Green Heart: Olympic National Park


                  from Ilaria Mutti Added 41 0 0

                  The western side of the park is mantled by a temperate rain forest, including the Hoh Rain Forest and Quinault Rain Forest. As opposed to tropical rainforests and most other temperate rainforest regions, the rainforests of the Pacific Northwest are dominated by coniferous trees, including Sitka Spruce, Western Hemlock, Coast Douglas-fir and Western redcedar. Mosses coat the bark of these trees and even drip down from their branches in green, moist tendrils. Valleys on the eastern side of the park also have notable old-growth forest, but the climate is notably drier. Sitka Spruce is absent, trees on average are somewhat smaller, and undergrowth is generally less dense and different in character.
