Meet AirDog, An Action Sports Drone For Your GoPro Camera | TechCrunch

The problem Latvian startup Helico Aerospace Industries has set out to solve is most homemade action sports videos rely on a camera, such as the GoPro, being strapped on your person or action sports equipment, providing mostly a POV shot only. But, with drone technology, it could be possible to democratise the kind of aerial videos previously the domain of expensive, professional shoots only.

Wim Hof World Record Breaker Trains Others On His Mental Method

A dilapidated farmhouse in the Polish countryside creaks and groans on its foundation as six men hyperventilate inside one of its frigid rooms. The windows are caked with frost and snow piles up outside the front door. Wim Hof surveys his students with stern blue eyes as he counts their breaths. They are lying in sleeping bags and covered in blankets. Every breath they expel appears as a tiny puff of mist as the heat of their bodies crystallizes in the near-arctic air. When the students are bleached white from exhaustion, Hof commands them to let all the air out of their lungs and hold their breath until their bodies shake and shudder. I exhale all my breath into the frigid air. “Fainting is okay,” he says. “It just means you went deep.”

Brand New: It’s a Sports Nation, we are only Living in it

Launched in 2004, SB Nation (short for Sports Blog Nation) is a massive network of more than 300 blogs run by paid sports writers-slash-fans. Combined, SB Nation pulls in 100 million pageviews a month through 20 million unique visitors, 80% of them dudes. While there is a mothership blog that covers sports in general, SB Nation’s real appeal are its local and team blogs, dedicated to the micro concerns of fans in different cities and for specific sports and teams, i.e., there is SB Nation Chicago for all of its citizens but there is also Bleed Cubbie Blue for the MLB’s Cubs, Windy City Gridiron for the NFL’s Bears, and Blog a Bull for the NBA’s Bulls. Over the years, each blog has been given free reign to design its own logo based on its own puny, insider-ey name — the result has been humorous yet mostly crummy, rectangular pieces of artwork. Earlier this month, in preparation for a relaunch of the look and functionality of its blogs, SB Nation introduced new logos for ALL blogs through a unified approach, designed by London-based Fraser Davidson. ALL of them, designed by Fraser Davidson. 300-plus.

France Culture - Moines boulistes en Périgord

1 comment
Un documentaire de Sylvain Alzial et Rafik Zenine - Rediffusion de l'émission du 29 août 2008 Au cœur de la Dordogne, au Temple Ho Sho Ji (Temple zen du Pic Lumineux), un maître zen français, Kaisen, disciple de Taisen Deshimaru, introducteur du bouddhisme zen en France dans les années 1960, pratique régulièrement la pétanque dans son monastère. Avec ses disciples, boules de pétanque en mains, il observe la courbe impermanente de la boule, les émotions ou les tensions des joueurs, les postures et le contrôle du souffle, la concentration sur le cochonnet : en somme, la présence à l’instant présent. Très proche du zazen, la méditation assise silencieuse des bouddhistes japonais, la pratique de la pétanque peut s’avérer d’une très grande efficacité pour commencer un cheminement spirituel. Selon les mots de Kaisen, “ Il n’y a pas d’un côté la vie et de l’autre, la pétanque. Si la pétanque peut nous élever davantage au-dessus de nos misères et faire de nous un être de bien, alors, toute notre vie deviendra “ pétanque ”, c'est-à-dire les deux pieds bien plantés, bien alignés dans notre vie… ”
